“Competencia Oficial” Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #CompetenciaOficial

"Competencia Oficial" Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #CompetenciaOficial Cuando un empresario multimillonario decide impulsivamente crear una película icónica, exige lo mejor. La renombrada cineasta Lola Cuevas es contratada para dirigir este ambicioso proyecto. Completan el equipo de estrellas dos actores de enorme talento, pero con un ego aún mayor: el galán de Hollywood Félix Rivero y el actor de teatro radical Iván Torres. Ambos son leyendas, pero no exactamente mejores amigos. A través de una serie de pruebas cada vez más excéntricas planteadas por Lola, Félix e Iván deberán enfrentarse no sólo entre ellos, sino también a sus propios legados. ¿Quién quedará cuando las cámaras empiecen a rodar? Voy a comenzar diciendo que “Competencia Oficial” es una de las...

“The Black Phone” : Stranger Danger! – Movie Review by Ana Sofía Cintrón (@Ana_Sofia53). #TheBlackPhone

"The Black Phone" : Stranger Danger! - Movie Review by Ana Sofía Cintrón (@Ana_Sofia53). #TheBlackPhone In 2012 the horror duo Scott Derickson and C. Robert Cargill brought a film that still haunts us to this day, and that is Sinister. Making its way to the top 10 scariest movies ever, It’s no surprise that the movie has made a huge influence within the horror community. Not many movies have scared me and made me feel uneasy quite like Sinister did. After working in the MCU with 2016’s Doctor Strange, this iconic duo went back to their roots, and announced their new project, The Black Phone. Being a fan from their previous work, I was quite excited about this one.   As children, one of the first rules our parents taught us is never to talk to a stranger; you never know what the ...

“The Black Phone” Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #TheBlackPhone

"The Black Phone" Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #TheBlackPhone After being abducted by a child killer and locked in a soundproof basement, a 13-year-old boy starts receiving calls on a disconnected phone from the killer's previous victims. With “The Black Phone” we see writer-director Scott Derrickson team up with actor Ethan Hawke for another thrilling scary joyride. The premises with The Black Phone is simple, and the execution is even more simple but works. The story is not mean to be over analyze. The story was it was present is meant to be enough as a +90-minute psychological thriller, where you are kept at the edge of your seat wanting to know how it will end. The jump scares are there but they are not at the for front of the story.  This movie i...

“Beavis And Butt-Head Do the Universe” Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #BeavisAndButtHeadDoTheUniverse #ParamountPlus

"Beavis And Butt-Head Do the Universe" Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #BeavisAndButtHeadDoTheUniverse #ParamountPlus After a "creative" judge sentences them to space camp, a black hole sends our adolescent heroes 24 years into the modern future where the duo misuse iPhones, embark on a quest to score, and become targets of the Deep State. Let me just come out and say it. I’m a fan of Beavis and Butt-head and grew up with the old MTV days. So, if I sound a bit bias, deal with it. With that out of the way, let me just add that the movie Is clearly not trying to reinvent the wheel, but I was surprised with that Mike Judge tried to do with the source material.  Much like “Do America” the premises with “Do the Universe” stays the same. The never-ending journey ...

“Elvis” Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #ElvisMovie

"Elvis" Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #ElvisMovie Elvis is Baz Luhrmann's biopic of Elvis Presley, from his childhood to becoming a rock and movie star in the 1950s while maintaining a complex relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker. And in my opinion the first clear award season bait of the year. Or at least, Austin Butler was that nomination for Best Actor secured for now. Elvis is this year’s award season King Richard and of course is also a Warner Bros movie, so that’s that. It works exactly as expected as tell all story being the icon that was Elvis Presley, minus the Priscilla Presley times which they didn’t dive into too much.  This movie shines in every single way imageable for awards season, from the cinematography, the production design...

“Men” Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #MenMovie

"Men" Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #MenMovie In the aftermath of a personal tragedy, Harper (Jessie Buckley) retreats alone to the beautiful English countryside, hoping to have found a place to heal. But someone or something from the surrounding woods appears to be stalking her. What begins as simmering dread becomes a fully formed nightmare, inhabited by her darkest memories and fears in visionary filmmaker Alex Garland's (Ex Machina, Annihilation) feverish, shape-shifting new horror film. “Men” was one of those movies that I can clearly say I was hype to see. And honestly in the end it didn’t disappoint. This being said, “Men” is not for everyone, much like “Crimes of the Future” that also recently came out is a special type of horror. With “Men” director Ga...

“Lightyear” Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #Lightyear #DisneyPixar

"Lightyear" Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #Lightyear #DisneyPixar While spending years attempting to return home, marooned Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear encounters an army of ruthless robots commanded by Zurg who are attempting to steal his fuel source. Lightyear was that Disney Pixar/Toy Story “origin” movie, or is it? that is not 100 percent clear, Buzz Lightyear story that we didn’t know we wanted to see, but it worked just as effective at bringing out all the typical emotions that most Disney Pixar are known for.  The story is very straight forward, Buzz Lightyear is stuck in space with his crew, and he needs to find a way to get back home. But the whole ordeal comes with a lot of hefty baggage, and that where the story works. In the middle of the story Buzz...

“Trevor: The Musical” - Movie Review by Juan Mojica (@LeadingMojicans). #TrevorTheMusical #DisneyPlus In “Trevor: The Musical”, we follow Trevor, a charismatic middle school boy on his journey of self-discovery. While Trevor tries to navigate adolescence, he also dreams of a life in show business. Throughout we see a bullied Trevor try to figure out his own identity, sexuality and find his way through life. The character is emotionally tested and tormented by people around him, especially after an embarrassing incident at school.  This off-Broadway period piece is based on the 1994 short film “Trevor” that won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short in 1995. The film also inspired the outreach and counseling non-profit program “The Trevor Project” which has been workin...

"Lightyear" : A cosmic adventure – Movie Review by Ana Sofía Cintrón (@Ana_Sofia53). #Lightyear Growing up with the adventures of Woody and Buzz Lightyear, Toy Story always had a special place in my heart. From owning toys to the VHS, this franchise was a mayor influence on my childhood. Every time there was a new film, it was a family event. For many years, we have followed this beloved character in many of his adventures and in 2022, it was time for a new mission. Directed by Angus Maclane, Lightyear is a new installment on the Toy Story universe. Now, you ask yourself, how does this movie connect to past stories? At the beginning of the film, a title card drops, and says: “In 1995, a boy named Andy got a toy. The toy was from his favorite movie. This is that movie.” Reading t...
