HAS barely launched, the Max platform urges us to “look better”. So put on your glasses! Available in France since June 11, the American streamer intends to seduce France with “more than 18,500 hours of content”. For 5.99 euros (with advertising), 9.99 euros or 13.99 euros (4K and four simultaneous devices) per month, the interface will provide access to major titles from the Warner catalog, in particular the Harry Potter and DC Comics franchises. Among the profusion of films, we have chosen ten, classic or essential, to see this evening – for the series, see another article. Like a first date, before “seeing each other again”.

“Mad Max: Fury Road”, by George Miller

Warner Bros/Kennedy Miller Productions/Village Roadshow Pictures

The world of motorized warriors continues by unfolding the fantasy of a great ride. This playful show is a cocktail of all possible influences. A real hallucinatory trip, and one that holds up devilishly.

“Interstellar”, by Christopher Nolan

Warner Bros/Paramount/Legendary Pictures/Syncopy

Drought devours the Earth. An astronaut from the future goes on a reconnaissance mission to find a new planet for humans… This journey into the unknown is a hymn to the spirit of discovery, to the desire to see bigger.

“Gran Torino”, by Clint Eastwood

A racist veteran intervenes in the gang war of which his Asian neighbors are victims… A film-testament of Eastwood, then aged 78, very much alive. Both a dark comedy, a thriller about America in 2008 and a moral reflection.

“Gravity”, by Alfonso Cuarón

Warner Bros.

Sandra Bullock and George Clooney released into space, by the director of Son of man. The first half is breathtaking, the form is magnificent, but it ends, unfortunately, like a banal “survival”.

“Sherlock Holmes”, by Guy Ritchie

Warner Bros/Village Roadshow Pictures

Guy Ritchie capable of making a good film? Well yes, as proven by this wildly recreational and very fast blockbuster, with an astonishing Jude Law as Watson, and especially Robert Downey Jr, intelligent and attractive as Sherlock. They form a duo so british

“The Heartbreaker”, by Pascal Chaumeil

Universal Pictures International France

A professional “couple breaker” falls in love with the woman whose marriage he must prevent… Old-fashioned comedy that eyes American successes: brilliant script, effective rhythm and charm of the two main performers.

“Gainsbourg (heroic life)”, by Joann Sfar

Éric Elmosnino, perfect in the role.

By a brilliant comic book author, an evocation of the life of Gainsbourg. Inventive first hour (with a sparkling and moving Laetitia Casta as Bardot). Then, we feel a little too much about the construction, which resembles a series of sketches…

“2001: A Space Odyssey” by Stanley Kubrick

Prod DB/MGM

From prehistory to the conquest of space, Stanley Kubrick questions the origins and future of humanity, in a dizzying and masterful metaphysical parable that opens a breach of infinity in the spectator’s imagination.

“Blade Runner” by Ridley Scott

Harrison Ford in “Blade Runner”.

In a Los Angeles of the future, sweaty, gloomy, gothic and overpopulated, an ex-police officer tracks down a group of robots with human faces. Fascinating science of decor in this fable adapted from Philip K. Dick. A model of its kind, never surpassed but widely copied.

“Casablanca”, by Michael Curtiz

Humphrey Bogart in “Casablanca”.

1942, in Casablanca. For the love of a woman, an American leaves his disillusioned neutrality and helps two resistance fighters hunted by the Nazis. Michael Curtiz sublimes Bogart and Bergman. One of those classics that we never stop seeing again and again.
