Mortal Kombat: The famous video game returns to the big screen for the third time, and cakes and violence are assured. Not for nothing has it been rated as not recommended for people under 18, and with good reason: Simon McQuoid's film does not cut a hair when it comes to showing violence taken to the extreme with its frenetic struggles. How it has to be. The result is an action adventure not suitable for sensitive stomachs, but one that delivers all the entertainment and playful violence that fans have been looking for. This adaptation has been a long time coming, but the wait has been worth it.
Godzilla vs Kong: For years one of the most epic confrontations of all time has been brewing, between two of the most iconic monsters in movie history. Godzilla, who comes straight from 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters', and King Kong, who came from 'Kong: Skull Island', face off in an epic battle in this film directed by Adam Wingard, a box office success that has revitalizing a 'Monsterverse' that was already dying. The result is an entertainment of heavy hits and shattered buildings, where whether the story makes sense or the humans are over-acting doesn't matter as much as getting carried away by the CGI spectacle.
Cruella: Disney continues to explore the lives of its most iconic villains, and now it's the turn of Cruella de Vil, who started out as an orphan on the streets of London and a fierce aspiring fashion designer in the '70s. With a punk aesthetic and A lot of sense of humor, Craig Gillespie directs this 'spin-off' starring a brilliant Emma Stone, who manages to sell a complicated proposal together with her nemesis Emma Thompson.
Raya and the Last Dragon: The new Disney animated film follows the line of 'Brave' with a warrior princess, Raya, who has to discover a way to unite the world of Kumandra, whose different territories live facing each other and divided by their difference. It is an adventure within the parameters of the animation studio, mixing action, comedy and morals that are directly reflected in our present. It is a great movie in all those areas, and also as a tribute to the countries of South Asia, which can finally boast of Disney princess.
Karen: We all know 'Out of Africa', a novel that became an iconic movie with Meryl Streep, but not so much its author Karen Blixen and her life, too, in Africa. There, the Spanish María Pérez Sanz takes us in this intimate portrait of the real character, played by Christina Rosenvinge, where we witness the last years of the Dane in Africa with her Somali servant Farah Aden.
