The arrival in of ‘The incredible 2’ has caused us to think about the long history of animated cinema. Many jewels have been released over the years and during recent times it is increasingly common to find one or more titles in our nearest cinema.
Next we are going to review the 29 best animated films in history. As usual, it is a personal selection, so do not be surprised that this or that title is missing whose absence seems unforgivable. Without further ado, I leave you with them …
Today the media attention of half the world is focused on Russia, where the World Cup has just started. A sport that has had an unfortunate translation to the cinema, where we can find films about the king sport that is better to forget. However, this unfruitful mix has left few but interesting film shows, which have satisfied both film buffs and football fans. It may not be easy to reflect the feeling, the euphoria, the magic, the disputes and the environment that football contains. But at least it has been tried. Although there is still hope that a film that is as remembered as a goal by Maradona will be achieved.
Beyond successes such as Games of Thrones or Stranger Things, the year has been full of good series that have gone unnoticed. We tell you what they are.
The 2017 was full of TV programs that without a doubt were exceptional and we are sure that you did not miss out. But let’s be honest there is life beyond Stranger Things, Twin Peaks, Game of Thrones or the last season of House of cards.
“Rise of the Tomb Raider” confirms its native 4K on Xbox One X and shows its spectacular appearance in a new videoEntertainment
That’Rise of the Tomb Raider’is an outstanding game is something we already knew;And we have to admit that in a way we already had that would benefit added to the extra power of Xbox One X. However, the title of Crystal Dynamics wants to become the referent to take advantage of Microsoft’s black beast, and his latest trailer makes it very clear.
Today is a good day! After the wonderful advance of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’, we have the new trailer of ‘Alien: Covenant’ with the expected return of the Xenomorph. This second advance (the first one arrived at Christmas) appears a week after 20th Century Fox launched a strange prologue where they introduced us to the protagonists, the poor victims of this new massacre…
Ridley Scott repeats the command of this continuation of ‘Prometheus’ (2012) that, according to the director, will answer all the questions that the other left raised, and will be a return to the terror of the original ‘Alien’ (1979). The cast is headed by Katherine Waterston, Carmen Ejogo, Billy Crudup, Demin Bichir, Danny McBride and James Franco (who has only appeared in the prologue, bad signal).
Civilization has become … The mother of the lamb, the strategy turned into drugs, the classic among the classics reaches its sixth installment and, as always, the first thing you have to face is the GREAT QUESTION: is it able to improve the saga, to introduce Enough news so that it supposes an advance without that implies to derail the great virtues of the classic Civs.
Is it the best Vanilla of all the Civs or not?
One of the difficulties of facing any Civilization is that the new arrives and has to face games whose continuous developments have reached reach 6-7 years. At that time it gives to better many things: in fact, Civ IV succeeded, thanks to its expansions, the most comprehensive Civilization history and polishing small defects and clattering oversights that plagued his first commercial version. Civ V, on the other hand, came up with something more complete in its big choices and its Gods + Kings proved less relevant to the overall gameplay, but completely forgot about so many little details that we did not remember as a great vanilla version.
In Civ VI there are many things that developers have not wanted to forget. Firaxis has opted to have an initial version as complete as possible and achieves it. There are more tricky issues than others and some issues from the miniDLC era to Paradox (for example, the Earth map is terrible: the main field of play for many players may not come limited to sell it in the near future), but its Initial playability is impressive.
That ‘s right: if there is something that I miss terribly are good screens “overview” of macro -management , global view of your cities and your army.
One of the strengths of ‘Doctor Strange’ is the graphical section and visual effects. Already discussed when we saw the film, but we wanted to delve into it to know what the “magic” behind what we see on screen.
Spoiler: There was much chroma and used six Lamborghinis for Stephen accident sequence.
Many dimensions, many soundstages
The introduction of the Marvel multiverse occurs in ‘Doctor Strange’ through the different dimensions (astral, mirror and dark) you will know our egocentric protagonist. The characters are jumping from one to another with enough agility through different portals and spells and all without breaking the rhythm and visual effects that maintain the aesthetic coherence of the film.
21 different sets and more than 1000 drawings for the art of film needed
‘Doctor Strange’ was filmed in cities like London, New York, Hong Kong and Kathmandu (Nepal), but also had to build 21 physical sets to give more realism to images.
It ‘s funny how a week ago the network exploded with a simple image : the logo of the legendary game company Rockstar printed on a red background. In fact, the creators of ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ or ‘Bully’ did not bother to add a word. But millions of fans already knew where they would go the shots.
Soon after came an illustration in which seven silhouettes on a sunset left little room for imagination, Rockstar take us back to the far west. However, it was not until the release of the first trailer when all doubts disappeared: ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ not only aims his revolver to be the best open world ever designed, but wants to be the flagship of this generation video game.
Paradoxically all it born from a project of Capcom, for a series of coincidences, ended up in the hands of the creators of the ‘Grand Theft Auto’ series. Released in 2004 for PlayStation 2 and imbued with the essence of the legendary Spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone, he came ‘Red Dead Revolver’. However, that formula would be improved with its sequel, or rather his spiritual successor: ‘Red Dead Redemption’.
It has not yet has been released and is already making waves. Apparently, as I overtook in the article that we took yesterday to criticism not just convince the entire film that David Ayer wrote and directed with such enthusiasm based on the group of supervillains created by John Ostrander.
Although it may be compared with ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ actually has little to do with it, because the DC universe built by Ayer is very different to that created by Zack Snyder (although it is true that are linked and that could, somehow, you be linked to the ‘Justice League’.
Roger Ebert called it the best production of 1998. That’s nothing. It was a box office flop raising two hundred thousand more than their bare – bones budget of $ 27 million dollars, but that did not stop him to acquire the fast condition cult film obligatory pilgrimage for fans of science fiction.
A condition well deserved since, although this writer not qualify as the best that saw the light during his debut year -there would be to stop the tape on the Normandy landings in Spielberg or that the “note” signed by the Coen, yes that would place it among the top five, not of 1998 but of science fiction that we saw during the nineties.
If this is so – and it is, I have no doubt – is due to multiple factors that combine to build a hypnotic film, full of nuances and references which greatly enrich its content and are put there so no chance to raise a microcosm in which, if anything stands out above all is the fascinating and amazing staging of Alex Proyas.
