Testament of Youth // Testemunho de Juventude

source: facebook.com/testamentofyouthfilm One thing I really enjoy is finding films on Netflix that I hadn’t heard of before, but end up loving. Recently I’ve noticed Testament of Youth popping up in the list of films Netflix recommended for me, and after seeing it mentioned at the BAFTAs – where a clip was played to showcase Taron Egerton’s performance as a nominee for the EE Rising Star Award – I was convinced I needed to watch it. Uma das coisas de que mais gosto é encontrar filmes no Netflix dos quais nunca tinha ouvido falar, mas que acabo por adorar. Recentemente reparei…

Mad Max: Fury Road // Mad Max: Estrada da Fúria

source: facebook.com/madmaxmovieuk Mad Max: Fury Road was the first Oscar Best Picture nominee I saw this year, which was fitting given its release date was all the way back in Summer. One thing I have to admit: I am a Mad Max newbie – I was aware of the films, but aside from knowing it was a post-apocalyptic setting, Mel Gibson played Max and Tina Turner had a role, as well as a kick-ass song, in one of the original films, I knew very little. But the reviews were great, and I was very curious. And George Miller, the brilliant…

Bridge of Spies

photo source: facebook.com/bridgeofspies Bridge of Spies is the latest movie with Steven Spielberg behind the camera in the director chair, and Tom Hanks in front of it.
