Oscar loves movies for movies, and this 2011 comedy by writer and director Michel Hazanavicius (which won five awards, including Best Picture) is not just an industry film: It is full of stylistic and narrative influences from all over the cinematic history. Hazanavicius tells his story of the abnormal transition from silent cinema to sound cinema, dramatizing this transition, recalling the inner corner of Hollywood of “Singin ‘in the Rain”. the secondary story, about the romance of a star who fades with an up-and-coming talent, is reminiscent of the many remakes of “A Star is Born”. However, “The Artist” is not just a “spot the homage” game. The filmmaking is clever and the performances are inspiring, especially those of Best Supporting Actress Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo and John Goodman’s Best Supporting Actress, ideally as a cigar-headed studio.

This 2006 action film by David R. Ellis was one of the first films to actually be rewritten on the Internet. Based solely on its title and the presence of Samuel L. Jackson, the film became something of a viral sensation before its release, prompting filmmakers to return to scenes and rework the tone to more accurately reflect the silly B film they had her “fans”. we are waiting. The result is a bit of chaos, especially in his painful first act. But as soon as the snakes start attacking the 30-minute limit, it’s silly, noisy fun, a lively riff in 1970s disaster movies, with plenty of horrific but funny shock effects and an admirable play performance by the relentless Jack.
