Frankenweenie

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.

Matthew E White

Matthew E White sports a sharp, white suit on the cover of his début album, but it’s the beard and mane combo that’s the bigger clue to its laid back, seventies sound.

Beasts of the Southern Wild (Bestias del sur salvaje)

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.

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.

A wonderful, stripped-down performance

If you come from a matriarchal family with strong female figures, Las chicas del calendario, under the direction of Antonio Calvo, will draw you in by making you feel as though you are hanging out with your favourite sassy aunts—cracking jokes, talking crudely and drinking white wine.

Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City

When A-punk first surfaced on the internet five years ago, its high-energy summery guitar riff, contrasting flute and African-inspired rhythms brought the indie world’s attention to the New York-based quartet Vampire Weekend.

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.
