Crawl

After a category 5 hurricane devastated his town in Florida, Haley ignores the authorities and tries to find his missing father. You will find him locked and wounded in the mezzanine of his house, however, at that moment the storm begins to get worse and both are trapped while the water level rises little by little. They will soon discover that this climb is the least of their problems and that they have in the house new neighbors with long teeth: huge alligators. For a couple of years the summer terror comes more from the hands of sharks than from haunted houses, demons and beings from other worlds. Movies such as Blue Hell (2016), 47 meters (2017), Megalodon (2018) and now 47 meters 2 (2019) have resumed the bad reputation of white sharks that Steven Spielberg unfairly opened in 1975 with Shark. In general, many of these past shark movies have contributed quite little in terms of suspense, form or plot. Underwater hell, however, has the virtue of combining the cinema of natural disasters with that of menacing sea creatures, although in this specific case we speak of crocodiles, a branch of terror less frequent than that of sharks although with good examples such as The territory of the beast (2007) o The beast under the asphalt, classic of the B series. The suspense is maintained throughout the footage thanks to the veteranship of two people who know what they are doing, their producer, Sam Raimi (director and creator of the infernal Possession trilogy, champion of the best low-budget horror movies) and its director, the French Alexandre Aja, responsible behind the cameras in Piranha 3D (2010) and especially the hills have eyes (2006)...

Puzzled, his fellow X-Men will face their worst enemy to date, one of their own, while trying to prevent an alien race from using it as a weapon. Pioneers of the superhero genre boom, the X-Men close a stage of almost 20 years and 10 films behind them. X-Men: Dark Phoenix, last installment before the saga passes into the hands of the Marvel / Disney binomial, puts the finishing touch with a reformulation of the events already told in its third part (The final decision), more raw and faithful to the original material, which speaks of identity and destiny. The question of whether the hero (or the villain) is born or made is the true engine of a plot where mutants will have to check their alliances to stop an unstoppable force and the alien race that wants to turn it into a weapon to conquer worlds.

Tolkien

At the beginning of the 20th century, J.R.R. Tolkien is a young man who is part of an exclusive group of friends with other writers and artists. As they mature and share their first experiences of love and loss, this alliance becomes practically brotherhood. The difficult years of the First World War, which threatens to separate them, and their stormy romance with Edith Bratt, will provide Tolkien with the courage and inspiration with which to write his famous novels about Middle-earth. Novelist, poet, philologist, linguist, teacher and soldier, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, passed to posterity for being the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, works of deep depth in popular culture In order to count those friendships, romances and life experiences that influenced crucially in his literary production, Dome Karukoski (Tom of Finland) tells in Tolkien the years in which this character took the leap of childhood (as a lonely orphan ) to maturity to become a young man who found in the loyalty, love and horrors of World War I the inspiration to create one of the best epic fantasy sagas of all time. Nicholas Hoult (The Favorite) puts himself in the skin of Tolkien in this academic biopic that, nevertheless, shows how his creative process was forged through almost surrealist images, where the brutality of the war fuses with the story of sword and witchcraft that is taking shape in your imagination...

Jackson (The odious eight) in the skin of Nick Fury, who had already played in other films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as Iron Man 2 or Captain Marvel.
