2.5/5 Cruella (2021) Mario Alegre Jenny Beavan's costumes are nothing short of spectacular, the real showstopper, but while style can be substance, Cruella lacks a filmmaker behind the camera that knows how to make it so. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

2.5/5 Army Of The Dead (2021) Mario Alegre There's a better and significantly shorter film in there somewhere, hidden in plain sight, but the movie just drags along its exhausting running time, diluting any sort of fun that might be had. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3.5/5 Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train (2020) Mario Alegre The animation is jaw-droppingly spectacular and the action is on par with the best scenes of the mega popular anime series. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

4.5/5 The Mitchells vs. the Machines (2021) Mario Alegre Absolutely hilarious and heartwarming, with the most wonderfully zany animation. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3.5/5 Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Mario Alegre The best Godzilla movies aren't always the most fun. That being said, if it comes down to pure dumb fun, then Godzilla vs Kong is easily among the best. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3/5 Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) Mario Alegre Yes, it is better than the 2017 version, but just slightly, because it is also a 4-hour-long Zack Snyder DC superhero movie, with everything that entails. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2021
3/5 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Mario Alegre The highlight of the film is watching Pedro Pascal as a coked-up Pac-Man chewing up the scenery, further proof that the Chilean actor is being criminally wasted behind that Mandalorian helmet. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

2/5 Tenet (2020) Mario Alegre "Tenet" squanders all its visual spectacle through obtuse storytelling and dramatic inertia. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

4.5/5 Wolfwalkers (2020) Mario Alegre Cartoon Saloon's crowning achievement is the most beautiful and visually striking hand-drawn animated film since "The Tale of the Princess Kaguya", and of of the year's best movies. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 Mank (2020) Mario Alegre From the luscious black & white cinematography to the monoaural sound design and that splendid orchestral score by Reznor and Ross, Mank is a cinephile's heaven. It might not be Fincher's very best, but most definitely a triumph. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3.5/5 Freaky (2020) Mario Alegre Vaughn and Newton are a total blast. Between this and "Happy Death Day, Christopher Landon continues to show he has a knack for mixing up genres and getting some very fun results out of it. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3.5/5 Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Mario Alegre Are we still capable of laughing at the type of people that wish harm on so many? Do we even want to? Sacha Baron Cohen seems to think so, but this time he must work around his comedy schtick to make the jokes land. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2020
4/5 Charm City Kings (2020) Mario Alegre Director Angel Manuel Soto gives us a perfect example of how portraying the authenticity of a community and the specificity of its subcultures can elevate even the most conventional stories. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2020
2.5/5 The Devil All the Time (2020) Mario Alegre Director Antonio Campos gets captivating performances from his all-star cast, but substantially, this adaptation of Pollock's book fails to reach past its surface. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

1.5/5 Unhinged (2020) Mario Alegre If you ever wondered what it would be like to watch a remake of "Duel" with Alex Jones behind the wheel of the truck, this sweaty Russell Crowe performance has you covered. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2020
4/5 I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) Mario Alegre Kaufman's latest deep dive into the existential horrors that keeps us up at night will captivate as many people as it will alienate, and probably for the very same reasons. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Sep 4, 2020
3.5/5 Mulan (2020) Mario Alegre Easily the best of the Disney remakes so far. Director Niki Caro boldly evokes Chinese wuxia films to breathe new life to the legendary tale. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2020
3.5/5 Mucho Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado (2020) Mario Alegre For close to 50 years, this Puerto Rican astrologer was a daily source of good vibes to over 120 million people around the globe. Who doesn't need a little bit of that right now? [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2020
2/5 Yerba Buena (2020) Mario Alegre Sponsored by a cannabis dispensary, it's difficult to separate the light comedy from the overt infomercial. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
2.5/5 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Mario Alegre Not so much a continuation, but a tangent, an almost complete erasure of the bold choices made by Rian Johnson which dared to expand the series' horizons, but Abrams has never been able to resist the dark power of the nostalgia. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2019
3/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Mario Alegre It's hard to pinpoint where the homage ends and the blatant imitation begins, but it's hard to blame the director for being so fixated on Kubrick's classic, and he comes up with some memorable images of his own. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3.5/5 () Mario Alegre Puerto Rican director Ariel Annexy's first feature film is a twisted and charmingly fun romance about finding that one thing that makes us whole. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2019
4/5 Joker (2019) Mario Alegre Phoenix's performance is monumental, a black hole of agony and despair that attracts everything else in the film towards him, consuming it in its deep and inescapable darkness. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
4/5 Ad Astra (2019) Mario Alegre Gray's solemn space odyssey wrestles constantly with conflicting ideas: faith and science, optimism and despair, and yes, even indie vs blockbuster cinema. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
4.5/5 Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) Mario Alegre Tarantino writes a heartfelt love letter (some might call it an eulogy) with so many recipients -from 60's cinema icons to movie houses long gone- it's impossible to keep count, but it's easy to let yourself revel in it. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3/5 Ready or Not (2019) Mario Alegre Samara Weaving was born to be a scream queen, and even when the film can't quite match her energy, her performance effortlessly carriers it through. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2019
2.5/5 The Lion King (2019) Mario Alegre Disney's latest remake of one of its most beloved classics is a technical marvel that fails to capture the emotions and artistry of the original. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2019
3/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Mario Alegre This Spider-man adventure is fun enough, but it's more preoccupied with serving as an Endgame epilogue than a sequel to the character's own franchise. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2019
3.5/5 Toy Story 4 (2019) Mario Alegre The fourth entry in Pixar's first and best franchise returns to some familiar places while finding a couple of new themes to explore. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2019
3/5 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Mario Alegre There are two types of Godzilla movies: the ones that use the radioactive giant as an allegory and the ones that are just plain, dumb fun. This one is one is all about the "Giant Monster Action". EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
2.5/5 Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Mario Alegre Take "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", remove everything that was fun about it, replace the cartoons with Pokémons, add a PG rated "Deadpool", and this kiddie film noir is what you'd get. EDIT
Posted May 9, 2019
4/5 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Mario Alegre Fan service is the main course in the latest MCU extravaganza. Endgame revels in Marvel knowledge, and after 11 years and 22 films, most fans will be more than happy to indulge in it. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3.5/5 Shazam! (2019) Mario Alegre That special kind of magic that has eluded most of the DCEU cinematic efforts finally makes an appearance on screen, and it's an absolute blast. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2019
3.5/5 Us (2019) Mario Alegre Jordan Peele's highly entertaining -albeit, a bit muddled- follow-up to Get Out, gives us, not one, but two of Lupita Nyong'o's best performances in (incredibly) her first leading role. EDIT
Posted Mar 21, 2019
2.5/5 Captain Marvel (2019) Mario Alegre You would think that after 21 feature films, Marvel would have perfected the superhero origin story formula, but to Brie Larson's detriment, this time they forgot to add "character" and "personality" into the mix. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3.5/5 The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Mario Alegre Everything is not awesome. It never was, and that's exactly the point this fun and tender sequel is trying to make. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2019
2.5/5 Miss Bala (2019) Mario Alegre The superb 2011 Mexican thriller has been turned into a bland Hollywood action fantasy with sequel aspirations that couldn't be more far removed from the original film's intent. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

2.5/5 Glass (2019) Mario Alegre Shyamalan swings for the fences with his trilogy capper, but for all it's ambition, it ultimately disappoints. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3/5 Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Mario Alegre Emily Blunt is an absolute delight, and she finds her ideal counterpart in Lin-Manuel Miranda. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

5/5 Roma (2018) Mario Alegre We are all passengers on this beautiful trip down memory lane at the invitation of Cuarón. Oh, how lucky are we who can accompany him. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2018
2.5/5 Aquaman (2018) Mario Alegre The DC Comics aesthetic has never been more accurately portrayed on screen, so it has that going for it. Narratively, though, it's still kind of a mess. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2018
4/5 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Mario Alegre An astonishing visual feat. Into the Spider-Verse raises de bar on what 3D animation can accomplish. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2018
2.5/5 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Mario Alegre More than "Act 2" of the proposed five, the film feels like an extended intermission, lacking focus, narrative impulse and any sense of urgency. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 Widows (2018) Mario Alegre Widows marks Steve McQueen's first commercial effort, and if we're very, very lucky, it won't be his last. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

2/5 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Mario Alegre Bayona tries his best to make this movie feel different from all its predecessors, but he comes up short. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3.5/5 Incredibles 2 (2018) Mario Alegre Holly Hunter gets to shine even more this time around. She's the heart and soul of the film. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

3/5 Tag (2018) Mario Alegre The fact that the entire cast is so invested in this ridiculous premise is what makes it fun. Or at least, fun enough. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT

2/5 Superfly (2018) Mario Alegre Like watching a two-hour trap video, this Superfly is all foreplay and zero climax. [Full Review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Oct 24, 2018
3/5 Ocean's 8 (2018) Mario Alegre It's fun enough, but this excellent cast shouldn't have to settle for a watered down version of what the guys had on their first outing. EDIT

3/5 Deadpool 2 (2018) Mario Alegre Deadpool is more than happy with being the class clown of the superhero movie landscape, and Reynolds is here to please. EDIT
