‘The Expendables 2’, ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’ and more

The last weekend of August 2021 is about to arrive, so in Espinof we cannot miss our appointment with the best cinema that is broadcast on television these days. Below you will find a selection of the seven best movies that you can watch for free on a national free-to-air channel. I remind you that those titles that I have not seen or have too forgotten are left out.

Friday August 27

‘The mercenaries 2’

The best installment of the trilogy, since the story, without being a big deal, flows better than in the two previous installments, which helps make this commitment to nostalgia more entertaining. And I’m not forgetting the villain played by Van Damme …

‘The Truman Show’

Show Truman

Peter Weir pre-empted the reality TV boom with a terrific drama in which Jim Carrey proved he had much more to bring to acting than an unrivaled mastery of grimacing and comedy. It was already essential at the time and has not lost an iota of validity since then.

‘They call him Bodhi’

They Call Him Bodhi

An influential action film signed by Kathryn Bigelow supported by the chemistry between Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. In addition, it has an increasing intensity in its more moving scenes that helps to draw the viewer more and more into what is happening on screen.

‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’

Probably my favorite of the whole saga, since it keeps all the good things of it and adds a superlative Sean Connery giving life to the father of the protagonist. Nor do I forget the great prologue with River Phoenix and that it is an entertainment that continues to be enjoyed the same no matter how many times you see it.

‘After the green heart’

After Green Heart

One of the most inspired heiresses of Indiana Jones who stands out for having behind the cameras someone with the talent of Robert Zemeckis, who just a year later would premiere ‘Back to the Future’, and for the chemistry between Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas.

Tomb Raider

A relaunch on the big screen of the famous video game character much more inspired than the previous incarnation led by Angelina Jolie. Here is Alicia Vikander leading a compelling and entertaining adventure.

‘Hangover in Las Vegas’

Hangover las vegas

A funny comedy that deals with the consequences of a crazy night in which a group of friends go out of control. Full of bizarre situations but with an indisputable freshness, it is a most enjoyable film, especially thanks to the unforgettable work of Zach Galifianakis.

The 27 best comedies in film history


Spanish programmers repeat films too much and I refuse to reward that by recommending some titles every two times. Therefore, they have to spend at least six months since they were included in another similar article until they were highlighted again. However, you may be interested to know that it is also issued:
