  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★★

    A brilliant satire about America's reaction to the coronavirus pandemic. Hilarious, with stellar performances from one of the best casts I've seen in years, Don't Look Up denounces events that affect us to this day. Watching Jennifer Lawrence's return to the acting world was quite satisfying, where it seems that not a day has gone by and she once again delivers a magnificent performance, the kind we were accustomed to four years ago. Don't abandon us again, Jennifer!
    It is…

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★

    It's been a long time since I've seen a fan service so well done, and I don't mean that as a bad thing at all. Spider-Man No Way Home is a movie that will leave all arachnid fans satisfied and with a big smile on their face when they leave the theater. It was like being a kid all over again. Tom Holland earns being Spider-Man in this installment and ends all doubts about his performance. The ending of the…

  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    ★★★★

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a horror film different from what we are used to. It is a horror that makes us uncomfortable, that as the film progresses gradually suffocates us. It is a cruel terror, a grotesque and nefarious terror where there is nothing good, at no time in the film there is hope, there isn’t a feeling of tranquility that tells us that everything will be fine, that this is just a nightmare.
    What works about the Texas…

  • Midnight Mass

    Midnight Mass

    ★★★★

    Mike Flanagan's latest miniseries delivers something different from what we're used to. In this one, there are no ghosts hidden in every scene and the viewer doesn't have to open his eyes wide to find them. It's not a story about a house that is cursed. And yet, the series does not lose what is so characteristic of this director's work; endearing characters that the viewer cares about, laughs with them, cries with them and identifies with them. A story…

  • Pig

    Pig

    ★★★★

    It's about time Nicholas Cage returned to making a movie that isn't all jokes and nonsensical action. Pig challenges the revenge genre and changes it completely, being something unique and innovative. Nicholas Cage gives one of the best performances of his career, proving that when he wants to and gets serious, he can be a great actor.

  • The Fast and the Furious

    The Fast and the Furious

    ★★★★

    A pleasant surprise that has a lot of heart. The characters are quite likable and in a short time, you get attached to them, you feel part of the gang and want the two protagonists to form that special friendship, which is noticeable in this film. The last race, despite being simple, is full of emotion and meaning, so it will keep you on the edge of your seat. With a script full of surprises and twists, this movie is a triumph of entertainment that managed to consecrate a great franchise.

  • You're Next

    You're Next

    ★★★★

    A film that despite belonging to a recurring and exploited genre, manages to feel fresh and exciting at all times, with a very well done gore and a script full of plot twists, this film is set to become one of the best of its genre.

  • Another Round

    Another Round

    ★★★★

    Halfway through the movie I had to stop for a drink. Fantastic!

  • Shin Godzilla

    Shin Godzilla

    ★★★★

    Who knew a Kaiju movie could cause so much terror?

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★

    Sound of Metal tells the story of a successful young drummer who loses his ability to listen. Being deaf must be a challenge that people who can hear often don't stay thinking about this huge challenge and the people who have to face them day by day. This film opens our eyes a little bit about this problem. As a society, we need to create more spaces so that deaf people can lead their lives in the best possible way. …

  • Judas and the Black Messiah

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★★

    A film that covers in a serious and professional way the history of the black panther party in the city of Chicago. Being a controversial subject, I think the director and the screenwriter managed to show the viewer the story of this group in a perfect way, showing all the good things they did as well as the bad ones. Neither as saints nor as demons, but as a group of people who fought for change, having great successes and…

  • Devil

    Devil

    ★★★★

    The story is pretty powerful, damn it, it's got a final twist that makes it even better. The last scene is pretty good and manages to give the film a big closure. Without a doubt, Devil keeps you attentive all the time, full of tension and suspense, it's a movie with a pretty good story
