'The miracle of P. Tinto'
One of the best first operas in Spanish cinema. It is true that Javier Fesser was already pointing out ways with his short films, but it was here that he finished defining his very personal style in an unforgettable comedy both at the script level and in the visual section.

'Deep Blue Sea'
A very entertaining horror pastime that knows how not to limit yourself to falling into the common places of this type of proposal. You can tell that there is someone behind the cameras with talent, but the script also has a little bit of wit and bad temper that is very welcome.

A powerful horror thriller that was key to launching Nicole Kidman's career. It offers a good dose of tension on the high seas, taking advantage of its small cast -Sam Neill and Billy Zane are the other great protagonists of the function- and with an effective staging job.

Saturday May 8
A masterpiece of action cinema. An indisputable film that served to launch Bruce Willis' career as an action hero, introduce Alan Rickman to the general public and confirm that John McTiernan was a top-notch director.

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2'
The epic conclusion to the entertaining adventures of the young wizard played by J.K. Rowling. It is true that the epilogue tarnishes the final result a bit and that it is not the best of the saga, but it is very satisfactory.

There is a lot of talk about the nonsense that 'Paddington 2' is the best film in history, forgetting for the moment that the first installment is practically at the same level in its way of approaching a film of a familiar nature and free of all cynicism of a clear, endearing and fun way.

'The Addams family'
The mythical family came to the big screen just three years after the death of its creator. With a more macabre tone than one would expect in a film of this cut, a perfectly chosen cast and careful production work, it maintains its charm intact 30 years after its arrival in theaters.

'Cloudy with a chance of meatballs'
Phil Lord and Chris Miller's first film was a witty animated comedy that knew how to connect with family audiences without limiting itself to being an overly conventional proposition, both in animation and in the story it tells.
21:30 at Boing
One of the best films by Álex de la Iglesia. It is a kind of twisted version of '13 Rue del Percebe 'in the form of a black comedy directed by a splendid Carmen Maura.

Sunday May 9
An imaginative sci-fi thriller that was once heavily weighed by comparisons to 'The Matrix'. When push comes to shove, we have an exhilarating dystopia with enough of its own voice that I would surely have appreciated having a more generous budget for action scenes.
18:03 at Paramount
A great adventure film that flirts more with the world of Indiana Jones than with the horror film origins of this franchise. Led by a charismatic Brendan Fraser and expertly directed by Stephen Sommers, it remains a joy more than 20 years after its release.
