You can still have a longer list of the releases under the “This Friday” section on the homepage.

Home Sweet Home Alone

WHY

When this new sequel of Home Alone was announced we were not really enthusiastic but it turns out that it is rather a good surprise. Starting with our new hero Archie Yates (seen in Jojo Rabbit) who is quite different from Macaulay Culkin and also by the new approach of the story. It’s no longer about simple and bad burglars and the story focuses as much on the hero as on the “bad guy” duo. The film is really funny especially when our hero is mistaken about the intentions of the burglars. He will then prepare some booby traps for them inspired by the original film but also with much more recent technologies and habits. These sequences are the best moments of the film (just like the original film) and really funny. Our hero is violent and ruthless enough that he almost becomes the villain. The film contains a lot of references to the original film and it’s a real pleasure to hear again the superb music of John Williams (reinterpreted here by John Debney). Don’t miss this really cool entertainment!

WHAT

20th Century Studios’ “Home Sweet Home Alone” is an all-new adventure comedy from the beloved holiday film franchise. Max Mercer is a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays. So when a married couple attempting to retrieve a priceless heirloom set their sights on the Mercer family’s home, it is up to Max to protect it from the trespassers…and he will do whatever it takes to keep them out. Hilarious hijinks of epic proportions ensue, but despite the absolute chaos, Max comes to realize that there really is no place like home sweet home.

Red Notice

WHY

For its new action comedy movie, Netflix has done things in big by bringing together the three mega stars that are Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds. The story revolves around three golden eggs that belonged to Cleopatra that our stars will have to steal. The film starts directly with one of his best action scenes with a twirling camera and nice stunts to discover playing on the physical differences between Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds. The chemistry between these two is going to work pretty well especially for the very good sequence in the prison and their spectacular escape. Gal Gadot will also have a good sequence with the second egg sequence and her confrontation with Dwayne and Ryan. The story is rather pleasant to follow with a lot of surprise and deception. We regret that it becomes from the half of the movie a succession of disparate and quick sequences of which some are almost embarrassing ! The film is still a good entertainment that makes us travel in many different places, without headache and a lot of humor.

WHAT

When an Interpol-issued Red Notice — the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted— goes out, the FBI’s top profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) is on the case. His global pursuit finds him smack dab in the middle of a daring heist where he’s forced to partner with the world’s greatest art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) in order to catch the world’s most wanted art thief, “The Bishop” (Gal Gadot). The high-flying adventure that ensues takes the trio around the world, across the dance floor, trapped in a secluded prison, into the jungle and, worst of all for them, constantly into each other’s company.
