Mama

05.7.2013 | By |

I would say that ‘Mama’ which is presented by executive producer Guillermo Del Toro is not rightly labeled as a horror film, because it is more of a fantasy and supernatural thriller than it is scary. Argentinian director Andrés Muschietti made a short-film in Spanish in 2008 titled ‘Mamá’ along with sister Barbara Muschietti, Del Toro saw something he liked and convinced them to make it into a full-length film. The film approaches what we’ve come to expect from Del Toro such as beauty even in the darkest scenes, an interesting plot and weird supernatural characters. The film is entertaining in it’s own right, but for those that are looking to get spooked you will only be startled and will be taken in a completely different direction. Read More

01.16.2013 | By |

Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron‘s “Gravity” finally has a release date. It will come out in theaters October 4th, 2013. 

The science fiction thriller stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney).

The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space. Read More

Top 10 Hispanic directors that could direct Star Wars VII!

11.5.2012 | By |

As you might have heard, Disney purchased Lucasfilm for 4 billion dollars, and with it, the Star Wars and Indiana Jones saga. The big talks to come out of that deal is that Disney is gun-ho on continuing the Star Wars saga, ergo, the seventh chapter of the series. For now Indy is out of the conversation.

With a look into the future of the iconic sci-fi franchise, we pick 10 directors – Hispanic directors – that possess the skill, vision and passion to take it into the next 35 years. By selecting these helmers and cinephiles, we break Hollywood conventions and give rise to a new generation of directors whom most likely grew up wanting to be the new George Lucas, laser-sword fighting like Luke Skywalker, quoting Han Solo, crushing on Princess Leia and fearing Darth Vader. 

So without further adieu, we pick the Top 10 Hispanic directors we think can and should helm the new Star Wars trilogy. Read More

When such cinematic detritus as Silent Hill: Revelation 3D (read our review) is out in theaters, blatantly robbing people of their hard earned money, it is then when one can appreciate in a better light the remarkable work Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.
