In theaters

‘The Northman’ (‘The Northman’)

Robert Eggers He had already conquered us with ‘The Witch’ and ‘The Lighthouse’, but here he receives a large budget for the first time in his career to shape a film about Vikings and revenge, but, obviously, it is much more than that. In fact, this is being ignored in the promotional campaign and could backfire on you.

“The Northman” review

‘Venicephrenia’

The new feature film Alex de la Iglesia It openly embraces horror with a slightly lopsided mix of slasher, giallo and thriller. There are no shortage of scenes with undeniable strength, but there is the feeling that certain elements attracted him a lot and that those responsible did not care so much that others were at a similar level.

‘tenet’

Tenet

The film directed by Christopher Nolan finally comes to HBO Max almost two years after its theatrical release. Everything indicates that he is doing it to stay, since it is an original Warner production, but you can find out later. Personally, I was disappointed, but it’s a film worth taking a look at.

‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

A nice and witty animated comedy that has a striking visual component but also a story with a hook and heart. It has the peculiarity of being the first feature film directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Milleran essential duo of today’s Hollywood.

‘Heat’

Heat

A top-notch thriller that has since served as an inspiration for many filmmakers. It is true that it may be a bit overloaded in terms of the number of characters, but then dramatically it works very well and also has a cast that is difficult to beat.

‘The descendants’ (‘The Descendants’)

The descendants

Probably the most accessible film of alexander payne to date, who proposes a family drama here, without this meaning neglecting to deal with deeper issues than usual in this type of production. Attention also to the great interpretation of George Clooney.

Review of ‘The Descendants’

‘Speed: Maximum power’

Speed

One of the best action movies of the 90s, in which the viewer was kept entertained at all times, making the most of the adrenaline associated with its starting point. Good leading couple formed by Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullockbut also essential is the contribution of the villain embodied by Dennis Hopper.

‘The Iron Sergeant’ (‘Heartbreak Ridge’)

The iron sergeant

It would be very easy to try to reduce this film from Clint Eastwood to a collection of mythical phrases, since it has a few throughout its footage, but that does not prevent us from seeing the disenchanted portrait of the American army that it offers.

Sunday at 3:45 p.m. on Neox

Review of ‘The Iron Sergeant’

‘The night of the giants’ (‘The Stalking Moon’)

The Night of the Giants

A different and fascinating western with a decidedly disturbing spirit. Mind you, it may not be from the start, but the relentless search for revenge by an Apache Indian will leave several moments full of tension and very close to horror movies.

Sunday at 18:25 in Trece

‘Summer 1993’

Summer 1993

Carla Simon is one of the greatest revelations of Spanish cinema. With this first feature film of hers, she showed that she had to closely follow her later career, something that she has confirmed by triumphing in Berlin with ‘Alcarrás’. Very opportune that La 2 now recovers his debut feature.
