Logan

Synopsis:

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X at a remote outpost on the Mexican border. His plan to hide from the outside world gets upended when he meets a young mutant who is very much like him. Logan must now protect the girl and battle the dark forces that want to capture her.

Mon avis:

Et voilà. C'est la fin pour Wolverine et quel fin! 
Oh mon dieu! C'était parfait! Brillant!et oui j'ai eu les larmes aux yeux.
C'est violent, c'est sanglant, c'est triste bref c'est ce que tu attend pour dire au revoir au plus gros rebel des X-men. Et je comprend aussi pourquoi Patrick Stewart à mentionné le fait que cela serais son dernier film en temps que Professor X. Cela ferais trop bizarre de le revoir après avoir vu ce qu'il ce passe dans celui ci.
Et dans ce film nous découvrons Dafne Keen. Cette petite fille ne parle presque pas mais bordel elle es bonne actrice! Je suis sûre que l'on va pas mal la voir après ce film.

In English:

That's it. The end of Wolverine and what an end! 
Oh my god! It was perfect! Brilliant! and yes I had tears in my eyes.
It's violent, it's bloody, it's sad. It's everything you are loonking for to say goodbye to the biggest X-men rebel. And I understand why Patrick Stewart mentionned that it will be his last film has Professor X. It will be to weird to see him back after what we see in this one.
And in this film we discover Dafne Keen. This little doesn't talk much but god she can act! I am sure that we are going to see a lot more of her after this film.

"Fantastic beasts and where to find them" read by Eddie Redmayne

Quatrième de couverture:

Narrated by Eddie Redmayne, this is the first audiobook edition of Scamander’s textbook ever to be released. Having starred as Newt Scamander himself in the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, who better to narrate this Hogwarts Library book from one of the wizarding world’s most famous magizoologists? 
 
Mon avis:
 
Je n'ai jamais vraiment intéressé par les livres audios mais dès que j'ai vu que Eddie Redmayne était le narrateur pour celui ci j'ai sauter sur l'occasion!
Qui de mieux pour nous lire ce journal que l'auteur lui même? :)
Au départ j'ai cru que cela allais être le screenplay pour le film et me suis demandé comment il allais faire mais il ce trouve que c'est le journal de ses découvertes qui nous es lu.
Il me prend 1h de marche pour aller au boulot et 1h pour retourner à la maison et j'ai donc décidé de l'écouter sur le chemin. Et c'était tellement bien!
Je n'ai pas vu le temps passé. J'ai cru qu'écouter une liste d'animaux allais être barbant. Et que la voix d'Eddie allais être ennuyeuse mais non. Je me suis laissé emporter et j'ai adoré.
Mon premier livre audio qui me donne envie d'essayer d'autres :)

In English:

I have never been interested in audio books but when I saw that Eddie Redmayne was the narator for this one I jumped on the occasion!
Who's best to read this journal than the author himself? :)
At first I thought it was going to be the screenplay for the film and I was wondering how he was going to do but turns out it is the journal of his discoveries that are being read.
It takes me 1 hour to walk to work and 1 hour to walk back so I decided to listen to it on the way. And it was so good!
I didn't see the time going! I thought that listening to  list of animals was going to be boring and that Eddie's voice was going to be annoying but no. I let myself in the book and I loved it.
My very first audio book that makes me want to try some more :)

Zootropolis

Synopsis:

From the largest elephant to the smallest shrew, the city of Zootopia is a mammal metropolis where various animals live and thrive. When Judy Hopps becomes the first rabbit to join the police force, she quickly learns how tough it is to enforce the law. Determined to prove herself, Judy jumps at the opportunity to solve a mysterious case. Unfortunately, that means working with Nick Wilde, a wily fox who makes her job even harder.

Mon avis:

Quand j'ai vu que ce film avais gagné l'Oscar du meilleur film d'animation j’étais dégouté car il était en compétition avec Moana et venant de voir le film jamais j'aurais pensé que Zootropolis méritais cet award.
Mais ce vieux proverbe qui nous dit de ne pas juger un livre par sa couverture es bien vrai! Car en fait Zootropolis es génial et cet Oscar es vraiment mérité!
C'est tellement drôle! l'histoire es tellement bien et Ginnifer Goodwin fait un lapin tout mignon! 
Je ne sais pas quels voix ils ont dans la version Française mais ici elles colles à la perfection.
Je vous le conseil vivement :)

In English:

When I saw that this film won the Oscar for best animated feature film I was gutted because it was against Moana and as I just watched it I never thought Zootropolis deserved this award.
But this all saying that tell us not to judge a book by it's cover was right! Because in fact Zootropolis is awesome and this Oscar is well deserved!
It's so funny! The story is so cool and Ginnifer Goodwin makes such a cute rabbit!
I don't know which voices they have in the French version but here they fit perfectly.
You really need to watch it :)

Fences

Synopsis:

Fences is the story of Troy Maxson, a mid-century Pittsburgh sanitation worker who once dreamed of a baseball career, but was too old when the major leagues began admitting black players. He tries to be a good husband and father, but his lost dream of glory eats at him, and causes him to make a decision that threatens to tear his family apart.

Mon avis:
Le trailer m'avais accroché et j'ai eu envie de le voir direct. 
Malheureusement je n'ai pas aimé.
Si je l'avais vu au théâtre, car c'était une pièce de théâtre au départ, j'aurais adoré! mais en tant que film ça ne fonctionne pas. 
C'est beaucoup trop long et il n'y a aucun rythme.
J'ai eu envie de sortir de la salle plusieurs fois.
Denzel Washington à fait une grosse erreur à adapter cette pièce pour le cinéma.
Mais par contre je doit avouer que Viola Davis es superbe dans ce rôle! 

In English:

The trailer made me want to watch it right away.
Unfortunately I didn't like it.
If I went to see it at the theatre, as it was a play at first, I would have loved it! but as a film it doesn't work.
It's to long and it doesn't have any rythme.
I wanted to leave the room a few times.
Denzel Washington made a big mistake by adapting this play for the cinema.
But I have to say that Viola Davis is amazing in this role!

"A monster calls" by Patrick Ness

Quatrième de couverture:

Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill, ever since she started the treatments that don't quite seem to be working. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there's a visitor at his window. It’s ancient, elemental, a force of nature. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Patrick Ness takes the final idea of the late, award-winning writer Siobhan Dowd and weaves an extraordinary and heartbreaking tale of mischief, healing and above all, the courage it takes to survive.
 
Mon avis: 
 
Oh mon dieu! Je n'arrive pas à croire que c'est une histoire pour jeunes adultes! Ce livre es tellement triste! 
Je ne sais pas comment j'ai fait pour ne pas pleurer.
Connor m'a tellement ému. Pauvre garçon seul avec sa mère malade. Pauvre garçon qui essaye d'être fort mais qui au fond ce sent tellement mal. 
Je vais devoir voir le film maintenant car je veux savoir si ils ont réussi à retranscrire toutes les émotions que l'on ressent en lisant ce livre. 
Lisez ce livre! mais si vous êtes sensible gardez un paquet de kleenex avec vous juste au cas ou :) 
En tout cas une chose es sûre! Vous ne serez pas déçu par celui ci.

In English:

Oh my god! I can't believe this story is for young adults! This book is so sad!
I have no idea how I managed not to cry.
Connor made me so emotionnal. Poor little boy alone with his mother who's ill. Poor little boy who tries to stay strong when deep down everything is wrong.
I will have to watch the film now because I want to know if they managed to keep all the emotions that we can feel while reading the book.
Read it! but if you are sensitive keep some tissues next to you just in case :) 
At least there is one sure thing! You won't be disappointed by this one.

Hidden figures

Synopsis:

The incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson - brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
 
Mon avis:
 
Je voulais voir ce film à tous prix. Et je suis heureuse d'avoir pu le voir avant qu'il ne soit plus au cinéma. Je suis sorti de la salle avec un gros sourire aux lèvres. Et je suis surtout sorti fière. 
Et je peu vous assurer que voir ce film vous rendra fier/fière aussi. 
Fière de ces femmes qui, malgré tout ce qui était contre elles à cause de la couleur de leur peau, n'ont pas baissé les bras et ont réalisé leurs rêves. 
Sans ces femmes nous ne seront pas là ou nous sommes aujourd'hui.  
Le racisme et l'égalité des sexes es encore un gros problème de nos jours mais ces femmes ont aider à changer ceci et nous devons continuer à nous battre pour abolir toute cette horreur et enfin devenir heureux tous ensemble.
Allez voir ce film d'urgence! 

In English:

I really wanted to see this film. I am happy I managed to see it before it goes off the cinema and I'm happy about it. I left the room with a big smile on my face. And I left the room proud.
And I can assure you that this film will make you proud as well.
Proud of these women who, despite everything that was against them because of the colour of their skin, never gave up and made their dreams come true.
Without these women we wouldn't be where we are today.
Racisme and equality is still a big problem nowadays but these women helped changing this and we need to keep fighting to stop this horror so we can finally live happy all together.
Go see this film immediately!

Before I go to sleep by S.J.Watson

Quatrième de couverture:

So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.
 
Mon avis: 
 
Une femme amnésique qui ne peu pas construire de nouveaux souvenirs et oublie tout pendant son sommeil. 
Au départ j'ai cru que cela allais être vraiment ennuyant et répétitif car elle aurais besoin de poser les mêmes questions tous les matins. Mais je me suis trompé.
 
Le fait qu'elle écrive ce journal fait qu'il ne ce passe pas la même chose à chaque fois. 
J'ai été tellement dans l'histoire que j'ai eu du mal à poser le livre. Tous les indices qui arrivent petit à petit jusqu'à ce qu'elle découvre la vérité m'a vraiment scotché. 
Je doit avoué que j'étais au milieu de l'histoire que j'avais déjà fait la connexion mais cela ne m'a pas spoilé mon enthousiasme :) 
 
Je le conseil vraiment.
 
In English:
 
An amnesic woman who can't build new memories and forget everything during her sleep.
At first I thought it was going to be really boring and repetitive because she would have to ask the same questions day in day out. But I was wrong.
 
The fact that she writes in her journal builds the fact that not the same things happen every time.
I was so into the story that I found it really hard to put the book down. Every clues that comes bit by bit until she discovers the truth really kept me on the edge of my seat.
I have to admit I was halfway through the book when I made the connection but it didn't spoil my enthusiasm :)
 
You need to read it.
