Low budget comedy with an original take on vampires. Some good moments and good actors but story is a bit lacking. 3.5/10
8. Good Kill (2014)
R | 102 min | Drama, Thriller, War
A family man begins to question the ethics of his job as a drone pilot.
Votes: 21,788 | Gross: $0.32M
Practically not released in US theaters as apparently people don't really want to be confronted with what is done in their name on a daily basis and would rather leave it shrouded in secracy. Very factual but not really balanced. The movie's stand against the war on terror is at time a little too heavy handed although some pro arguments are exposed as well. Good actors and actresses but flat secondary caracters. Very good production values. 4/5

26. Smart Ass (2014)
90 min | Comedy, Drama
Three students of a French business school attempt to apply their academic outlines to their sex lives.
The movie doesn't really try to explain the details of their operation but focus more on the discovery and management of these young student's sex life. Dialogues were a bit of a let down. The actors were really great. Dog Pound and Sheitan were better movies imo. Still a fan of Chapiron (not enough young directors with fresh visions in French cinema). 3/5

Votes: 1,101,042 | Gross: $116.90M

On the night of the discovery of a duplicate Earth in the Solar system, an ambitious young student and an accomplished composer cross paths in a tragic accident.
Votes: 88,120 | Gross: $1.32M
Very interesting Sci-Fi movie. Sometimes gets a little too close to a psychological drama, but the pay off is worth it. This director is worth following, second low budget high concept movie after "I Origins". 4/5
35. Kill the Messenger (2014)
R | 112 min | Biography, Crime, Drama
Journalist Gary Webb, California 1996, started investigating CIA's role in the 1980s in getting crack cocaine to the black part of LA to get money and weapons to the Contras/freedom fighters in Nicaragua.
Votes: 42,798 | Gross: $2.45M
After his report broke out, the real Gary Webb was ostracized from the entire journalist community and his work was discredited. The CIA later very publicly admitted what he said was indeed true. That did not change the way he was treated by his peers, most notably the NYT, LAT and WP, probably mad that they did not see anything coming depsite priding themselves to be the best investigative journalists. He ended up committing suicide. The movie might be a little too paint-by-number political thriller sometimes, but this story is really compelling. Took a few liberty with the facts though (try to make his suicide look like a murder). This guy's work deserves a really good documentary. 3.5/5
36. The Purge (I) (2013)

40. A Perfect Man (2015)
104 min | Drama, Thriller
A struggling writer finds a shortcut to fame, but a blackmailer threatens to ruin his perfect life.

Votes: 10,043 | Gross: $0.05M
On the plane. Not my kind of movie but some good things here. The story itself is done to death and so not that interesting but the actors really give the movie some depth. Cassel's caracter is a real douch depsite what was intended. 3/5
44. Deadpool (2016)
R | 108 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
