Just in time for Halloween, Tim Burton pays homage to the classic horror genre in his latest animation, Frankenweenie, which tells the story of a young boy, Viktor Frankenstein, who bri

Lincoln

Steven Spielberg does not disappoint with his latest masterpiece, “Lincoln”, which will be released in Spain tomorrow, Fri, 18 Jan. The movie follows the story of Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis), the United States 16th President, and his mighty struggle to pass the 13th amendment to abolish slavery.

Silver Linings Playbook (El lado bueno de las cosas)

Not many romantic comedies begin in a mental hospital, but then Silver Linings Playbook isn’t a typical romantic comedy. Nominated for eight Oscars, David O Russell‘s (The Fighter) latest offering stars Bradley Cooper (The Hangover and The A Team) as Pat, a manic former teacher who is obsessed with getting back with his estranged wife.

The Flight (El vuelo)

Whip Whitaker is flying high while piloting SouthJet flight 227 on its journey from Florida to Georgia because instead of coffee and toast for breakfast, Whitaker had beer and cocaine.

Beasts of the Southern Wild (Bestias del sur salvaje)

What would you do if melting polar ice caps and rising sea levels threatened the only home you had ever known? Would you flee to the safety of higher ground? Or would you stay put, keep calm and drink beer? For six-year-old Hushpuppy and her father Wink it’s a no-brainer… someone pass the bottle-opener.

Spring Breakers in Madrid

Ashley Benson has a confession to make. “I’m exactly like my character,” she admits. She’s joking, and the entire audience laughs, because in Spring Breakers Benson plays a moralless, drugged up, violent and promiscuous partygoer, in a movie about four girls who go on spring break to Florida and befriend a gangster.

Great Expectations (Grandes esperanzas)

Marsh country, Kent. An oppressive grey sky casts a dullness over the watery cattle-filled landscape. A young boy, aged 11 or so, runs along the riverside path and into a cemetery, coming to rest at his parents’ grave. A dirty, long-haired, bearded man shackled with jangling chains creeps up on the youngster and threatens to kill him if he doesn’t do as he’s told.

Trance

Hypnotism; some believe that it’s nothing more than a con, others that it really can help people to quit smoking, overcome their phobias and maybe even remember where they have hidden something very, very important.
