Pearl Harbor (2001)
The blockbuster directed by Michael Bay tries the same card as the previously mentioned film, mixing melodrama and spectacularity. The attempt is only half successful because the second aspect works much better than the first. The fact remains that Pearl Harbor it is indeed an amazing film to see for the war scenes, with the sequence of the attack on the US Navy in Hawaii destined to enter the history of special effects. Ben Affleck, Kate Beckinsale And Josh Hartnett they are the protagonists, who are lost in the strength of the staging. But anyway … Available on Rakuten TV, KILOS, Google Play, Apple Itunes, TIMVision, Amazon Prime Video.
Lilo & Stitch (2002)

50 First Dates (2004)
Perfect subject, brilliant basic idea to develop both comic ideas with a guaranteed effect and a tender and precise romantic background. The rest is done by the alchemy between Adam Sandler And Drew Barrymore. 50 first kiss times it makes you laugh, sometimes out of breath, and softens the heart. With an ending that is not at all obvious and moments of excellent cinema. Great success with the public, and really deserved. One of the best feature films made by Sandler.
