John Milius tried to pay homage to the classic adventure cinema.

Good cast, headed by Sean Connery, for an attractive and original mix of romance and adventure.

‘The nucleus’

The core. United States-United Kingdom, 2003 (129 minutes). Director: Jon Amiel. Cast: Aaron Eckhar, Hilary Swank, Stanley Tucci.

Director of Sommersby it goes to catastrophic cinema. With a cast of proven quality, Jon Amiel speculates with the hypothesis that the Earth’s core stops rotating, which entails a series of terrible consequences for life on the surface (the Golden Gate sinks, the walls of the Coliseum…). A novel idea, but with a staging too seen.

15.40 / Four


Maleficent. United States, 2014 (97 minutes). Director: Robert Stromberg. Cast: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Juno Temple.

The sleeping beauty of the forest, Perrault’s famous tale, lives here an original revision that gives all the weight of the show to Maleficent, a young fairy whose heart was hardened by circumstances until it turned into stone.

United States, 1998. Director: Mimi Leder. Cast: Tea Leoni, Robert Duvall, Elijah Wood, Vanessa Redgrave, Maximilian Schell, Morgan Freeman.

Effective and very entertaining catastrophic drama that investigates the danger that looms over all humanity due to a meteorite that travels directly to Earth. Produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Mimi Leder (The peacemaker), this story stands apart from the bulk of the production by giving prominence to the personal dramas of its main characters, although without neglecting its successful special effects. She does not miss it because she is worth it.

17.45 / Be Mad

‘The Sun’s empire’

Empire of the sun. United States, 1987 (152 minutes). Director: Steven Spielberg. Cast: Christian Bale, John Malkovich, Nigel Havers.

Although at first David Lean was going to be in charge of filming this adaptation of JG Ballard’s autobiographical novel, Steven Spielberg was finally chosen, so the story lost much of the acidity that the original treasured. Despite everything, the story of a child separated from his parents during the invasion of China by the Japanese in World War II presents some interesting constants in the cinema of the famous director.

The impossible love story between a policeman in charge of investigating the mysterious death of a man and the main suspect, the wife of the deceased (a role played by a seductive and priceless Tang Wei), served the well-known Park Chan-wook (Old Boy) to carry out this labyrinthine and enveloping intrigue with echoes of the master of suspense, the great Alfred Hitchcock. A masterful staging and a sensual atmosphere full of imagination do the rest. Award for best direction at the Cannes Film Festival.

This is the definitive documentary on the queen of rock. In the fall of 1981, Tina Turner gave an interview to the music editor of People magazine. Five years earlier, she had been divorced from Ike Turner, her husband and musical partner of 16 years, and almost no one knew why. The story she told was a harrowing account of the abuse and torture she had experienced and the literal flight she made one night after years of mistreatment. Directed by Oscar winners Dan Lindsay and TJ Martin, Tina is an intimate and revealing look at the queen of rock’s unlikely journey through life and how her story of survival impacted both audiences and herself.

‘The Snoopers’

Sneakers. United States, 1992 (126 minutes). Director: Phil Alden Robinson. Cast: Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, Ben Kingsley, Mary McDonnell, River Phoenix.

With a luxury cast, in which the presence of Robert Redford and River Phoenix stands out, this careful story is presented that focuses its attention on the world of espionage and computing. Plot approaches from the 1960s for a tape that has some footage left over. As interesting as wasted.

‘Pulp fiction’

United States, 1994 (147 minutes). Director: Quentin Tarantino. Cast: John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel.

Quentin Tarantino once again shows his genius in this outstanding action film, which won, among other awards, the Oscar for Best Screenplay and the Palme d’Or at Cannes. Sex, drugs, a powerful soundtrack and some curious gangsters capture the attention of this action-packed story, which brought to life the figure of John Travolta, perfectly seconded by Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman and Harvey Keitel. Essential.
