The weekend is just around the corner and in Espinof it is time to review the most outstanding cinema of these days. Today I bring you x essential movies to see these days in theaters, streaming, physical format or on a television channel national Spanish. By the way, I would also like to let you know that it will be the last installment of this section on the web.
At the cinema
‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’
Fame may have gone to ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,’ but the film that has really fully explored all the possibilities of the multiverse is this edgy sci-fi from the directors of ‘Swiss Army Man.’
Review of ‘Everything at once everywhere’
This intersection of science fiction and action movies went somewhat unnoticed at the time, but its arrival in the catalog of Netflix it is the opportunity to recover a film that flirts with the superhero cinema. Violent and entertaining in equal parts, it also has a more comical and relaxed side that feels luxurious. And if you have already seen it, take a look at this review of the best cinema on the platform so far this year.
Review of ‘Upgrade’
Another atypical approach to superhero movies that in this case comes to Spain from the hand of Movistar+. Set in Italy in the middle of World War II and with some circus artists as the main protagonists of the show, it is a film that starts with great force but then does not finish maintaining the same level. Despite this, the good work of the cast and its attractive visual finish make viewing it worthwhile.
‘Freaks Out’ review
in physical format
An unusual film from Spanish cinema in which bigas moon demonstrated his ability to carry out an exciting and sick work around the obsession of a psychopath with a prostitute. Especially recommended for those who love disturbing titles.
‘Death of a cyclist’
One of the most acclaimed films in the history of Spanish cinema came to us from the hand of Juan Antonio Bardem is this powerful drama with Lucia Bose and Alberto Closas giving life to a couple -although she is married to another- doing the impossible to hide that they have accidentally run over a cyclist. Among other things, a merciless portrait of the national bourgeoisie of the time.

‘The quiet man’ (‘The Quiet Man’)
One of the most famous films of the great John Ford and also one of the most accessible, since deep down it is still the story of a boxer who returns to his place of origin to lead a quiet life but they don’t stop picking on his nose. Obviously there is much more to it than that, but with that base, and all the talent of those involved, it is much easier to conquer the reluctant viewer.

Review of “The Quiet Man”
One of the latest movies Tim Burton It is this gothic horror film with fairy tale touches in which it manages to create a peculiar atmosphere, ideal to immerse you in the story of Ichabod Crane played by Johnny Deppthe actor with whom the director of jewels like ‘Eduardo Manostijeras’ or ‘Ed Wood’ has gotten along the best, not by chance, both starring the today defenestrated interpreter.
Saturday at 7:50 p.m. at Paramount
Review of ‘Sleepy Hollow’
‘Hugo’s Invention’ (‘Hugo’)
Martin Scorsese he embroidered it with this declaration of love for the seventh art in the form of an excellent children’s fable. It is true that it may be a softer film than expected coming from who it comes from, but that does not detract one iota from the merit of this great feature film in which he once again exhibits all his talent behind the cameras without attracting more attention than necessary, since which also has a first class cast.
Sunday at 9:55 p.m. at Paramount
Review of ‘The Invention of Hugo’
‘Portrait of a woman on fire’ (‘Portrait de la jeune fille en feu’)
One of the great sensations of French cinema in recent years that made Celine Sciamma one of the filmmakers to follow from then on. Praised for her beauty, both visual and emotional, and for the performances of Noemie Merlant and Adèle Haenelthe two protagonists of the function.

Review of ‘Portrait of a Lady on Fire’
‘Fast & Furious 6’
This weekend you will be able to see several films of this popular franchise starring Vin Diesel, but I have preferred to highlight only my favorite of the entire saga. A frenetic and crazy entertainment, ideal to freak out a little in front of the screen.

Review of ‘Fast & Furious 6’
A great legal drama that addresses a scandalous real case accurately and without making the mistake of wanting to lecture the viewer. Well led by a solvent Mark Ruffalowe are facing one of those adult dramas that are so scarce lately in Hollywood, and it’s a shame, because here we have a perfect example of a film in which nothing is out of tune, not even its small concessions to make what counts more cinematographic.

Review of ‘Dark Waters’
