Edgar Wright is back with ‘Baby Driver’

Hello, Edgar. How’s the hand?

by Benjamín Harguindey

Alright, so it’s only been 4 years since The World’s End (2013) but after the prolonged will-they-or-won’t-they that was Edgar Wright’s involvement with Marvel’s Ant-Man (2015) it’s nice to see him back in the director’s chair and toting a comedy unmistakably bearing his signature.

Review: Kong: Skull Island (2017)

Kong: Skull Island (2017) is a fun, old-fashioned send-up of the adventure novel of yore; less of a remake of the 1933 King Kong (or Peter Jackson’s 2005 version for that matter) and more of an original adventure story featuring Kong, King of Skull Island.

Review: Swiss Army Man (2016)

by Marina González

What!? That could be you first reaction when you watch Swiss Army Man (2016). What’s going on in here? If you watch this film without knowing anything about it, you’ probably say that out loud: what’s going on in here? Apparently this is about a dead man (a zombie?) with chronic farting who gets erections when he sees pictures of girls. Weird isn’t it?

Brutti, Sporchi e Cattivi: A Retrospective

Remembering a great film and a master of filmmaking.

by Iñaki Oñate

Last year master filmmaker Ettore Scola died at the age of 84.
His career spanned more than fifty years. From superb screenplays
such as the classic Il Sorpaso (1962) directed by Dino Risi and starring
Vittorio Gassman and Jean Paul Trintignant, to his magnificient
directorial body of work that includes such films as C’eravamo tanto
amati (1974), Una giornata particolare (1977) and Il mondo nuovo (1982), Scola has proven to be one the most influential and powerful authors of
Italian post-neorealism.

Review: Logan (2017)

Six claws underground.

by Alejandro Turdó

Whoever caught a glimpse of the trailer for Logan (2017) during the last couple of weeks might have been able to read between the lines of the imagery converging with Johnny Cash’s rendition of “Hurt”. A clear indication was being made: this is the end… the bitter end.

Review: T2 Trainspotting (2017)

At one time, you’ve got it, and then you lose it, and it’s gone forever.

by Benjamín Harguindey

T2 Trainspotting – the sequel to the 20 year old cult classic Trainspotting – is just a nice trip down memory lane. That’s no small feat, but there’s little else to it, which in turn makes it sort of disappointing. Considering how groundbreaking the first movie was, the second one leaves you wishing it had been at least about something instead of settling for an homage of itself.
