95% It Follows (2015) What is unique about 'It Follows' plot-wise is practically null and essentially boils down to the fact that... the triggering action is having sex with someone. [Full Review in Spanish] ‐ Espinof

82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) The 112 minutes of 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' are a constant appeal to the public with impossible scenes in which reality and fantasy are mixed with an astonishing naturality. [Full Review in Spanish] ‐ Espinof

93% Wrinkles (2014) 'Wrinkles' the film found no direct response to a massive interest in Spanish cinema for comics or, as we will see, to serve as an example of how a comic should be treated when moving it to 24 frames per second. [Full Review in Spanish] ‐ Espinof
Read More | Posted May 7, 2020

Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2020
74% The Adventures of Tintin (2011) The animation team manages to give life to a universe, that of Tintin, which has never played with such excellency at 24 frames per second. [Full Review in Spanish] ‐ Espinof
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2020
79% Cocoon (1985) Signing the film with his usual efficiency (...), Howard owes almost all the qualities of that climax to the work of a visual effects team that received a more than deserved Oscar. [Full Review in Spanish] ‐ Espinof
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2020
No Score Yet El Capitán Trueno y el Santo Grial (Captain Thunder) (2014) There is NOT in 'Captain Thunder' the slightest sense of entertainment, only mediocrity, archetypal situations, visual effects in the level of 'Xena', characters completely devoid of charisma ‐ Espinof
