Movie: Nemo and the Dreamworld on Netflix
“Little Nemo and the World of Dreams” takes us to the world of dreams, where young Nemo (Marlowe Barkley) and his eccentric friend Flip (Jason Momoa) embark on an extraordinary adventure. After his father Peter (Kyle Chandler) suddenly disappears at sea, Nemo’s sweet life at the lighthouse is turned upside down when he is forced to move to town by his clumsy but well-intentioned Uncle Philip (Chris O’Dowd). During the day, Nemo struggles to adjust to his new school and new routine. But at night, a hidden map that leads to the fantastical Dream World quickly connects him with his partner and guide, the rather rough but well-liked outlaw Flip. Flip and Nemo quickly find themselves on an incredible adventure, overcoming dreams and escaping nightmares. After that, Nemo regains hope to reunite with his father…
Winsor McCain’s pioneering work in comics, published between 1905 and 1914, “Little Nemo” tells the story of the adventures of a young boy immersed in a world of dreams. Alice in Wonderland’s near dreamlike adventures stand out for its storytelling and powerful imagery (especially the working bed). A feature film adaptation could only rip off the comic book. Director Francis Lawrence (especially known for the Hunger Games movies) chooses to take it a step further by turning Nemo into a young girl who goes in search of her missing father in a family adventure film.
Blamed in particular for a certain lack of rhythm, “Little Nemo and the World of Dreams” nevertheless has beautiful moments, especially the relationship between Nemo and his father Peter, as well as mourning, the loss of dreams or the transition to adulthood. life in a fair enough way. If Jason Momoa stands out as a gangster with a big heart, it is the young Marlow Barkley who stands out above all on screen and offers a great performance for a great movie to watch with the family.
Documentary Series: “The Art of Television” at OCS
For three seasons, The Art of Television has been showing the behind-the-scenes side of television series, especially the people behind the camera. For its third season, still at the helm of Charlotte Bloom, Television Arts focuses on female series directors. A necessary focus, as this position may be invisible in a type of media where the position of the screenwriter or showrunner is more emphasized. And when more women control the camera. So here are the portraits of six female filmmakers to discover, who are painting the face of an industry that is still very male-dominated, and in which women sometimes have to become producers, screenwriters, and actresses before they can become directors.
Among the most famous names we find Jennifer Morrison (played before filming episodes of “Dr. House” or “Once Upon a Time”, Euphoria or Dr. Death) or Helen Hunt (star of “Crazy about you”, Oscar. “The worst and for the best” winner, he went on to direct “This Is Us” in particular). It also explores the amazing careers of Danish director Suzanne Bier (Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2011 for Revenge, then Oscar, who launched herself in Hollywood with miniseries such as The Night Manager or The Night Manager is an opportunity to do. Bird Box on Netflix”) or French-Swedish director Charlotte Brändström, who went from “Julie Lescaut” to “The Witcher” or “The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power”. Finally, fans of the series Marti Noxon ( “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) or Michelle MacLaren (“X-Files”, “Breaking Bad”) will also be appreciated.

Comedy: Guardians of the Galaxy: Happy Holidays on Disney+
For Christmas, Guardians of the Galaxy wants to change the minds of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), who is still reeling from Gamora’s disappearance. Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Drax (Dave Bautista) come up with a plan to give him an unforgettable gift, in this case a date with Star Lord idol Kevin Bacon (himself). Too bad if this meeting has to go through interstellar abduction…
Since 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy has been out of place in the Marvel universe, with a team of villains becoming superheroes against the background of pop music from the 70s and 80s. Thanks to director James Gunn’s vision, an unknown group of comics became superstars. But all good things must come to an end: the third and final installment of Guardians of the Galaxy will arrive in May 2023, and James Gunn will change the dairy by taking over the reins of Marvel’s rivals DC studios.
So “Guardians of the Galaxy: Happy Holidays” sounds like the beginning of the end, and on this occasion, James Gunn wanted to pay homage to the unknown side of Star Wars with the “Holiday Special”, a special edition of the saga. it’s considered embarrassing, but that’s why the director is a big fan. And this special edition of Guardians of the Galaxy sounds like a recreation, a treat, where a fan who has fun with his toys and idols, especially Kevin Bacon, embarks on a funny chase. Because if Guardians of the Galaxy: Happy Holidays isn’t going to thrill the general public, it at least has the decency to cover the comic carnage of Pom Klementieff and Dave Bautista before the 2023 film.
