Movies on The Beach

Leaving behind my routine of watching all the superheroes films that are being released this year, which by the way has another one to be launched this week (X-Men: Apocalypse) and I'm going to watch it too, here are some of the movies from the 2016 Cannes Film Festival I can't wait to see:

1 - 'Café Society', by Woody Allen

With Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart, you know as I shared here before.. In the 1930s, a young man (Jesse Eisenberg) falls in love after moving to Hollywood, then finds romance again after returning home to New York.
It seems great, the only thing I didn't like it Jesse - but I'm not going to explain myself again :(

2 - 'Julieta', by Almodóvar

Just 'cause it's a new Almodóvar movie and I love his movies ;)

3 - 'The nice guys',  by Shane Black

“The Nice Guys” takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Ryan Gosling) and hired enforcer Jackson Healy (Russel Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power.

4 - 'From the Land and the Moon', by Nicole Garcia

From the Land of the Moon is a 2016 French film written and directed by Nicole Garcia and starring Marion Cotillard. The film is adapted from the novel of the same name by Milena Agus.

5 - 'Money Monster', by Jodie Foster

In the taut and tense thriller 'Money Monster', Lee Gates (George Clooney) is a bombastic TV personality whose popular financial network show has made him the money wiz of Wall Street. But after he hawks a high tech stock that mysteriously crashes, an irate investor (Jack O'Connell) takes Gates, his crew, and his ace producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) hostage live on air. Unfolding in real time, Gates and Fenn must find a way to keep themselves alive while simultaneously uncovering the truth behind a tangle of big money lies.

6 - 'Personal shopper', by Olivier Assayas

Kristen Stewart received lengthy standing ovation at the premiere of the movie in Cannes.
7 - 'Hands of Stone', by Jonathan Jakubowicz

Panamanian boxer Roberto Durán (Édgar Ramírez) develops a fierce rivalry with American fighter Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond).
I'm getting 'Creed' vibes... thoughts?

8 - 'The BFG', by Spielberg

A girl named Sophie encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because unlike his peers refuses to eat boys and girls.

And you? Want too see any one of these movies?
