Loki may not be exactly the person you would trust to save the world, but Don’t worry, the weekend is not exactly empty of heroes and heroines between Ratchet, He-Man and the troubled mother protagonist of ‘Disomnia’. These are just some of the plans that we present to you for this weekend.
And the reruns in theaters continue without rest. In this case it is the turn of a teacher like David Lynch. On the occasion of its anniversary it is re-released ‘Mullholland Drive’, one of his latest feature films and a true wonder, enigmatic and very modern. In it, a young aspiring actress who comes to Los Angeles to become a movie star meets an amnesiac woman who has suffered an accident. Impressive performances by Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Harring and winner of the Best Director award at Cannes.
Who does not stop is Disney +, that after the premiere of the sensational ‘MODOK’ returns with another live-action production about one of his most charismatic sidekicks. ‘Loki’ combines time travel and buddy movie Investigation in a plot in which Thor’s brother tries to fix messy things in space-time with the help of Owen Wilson.
This frenetic post-apocalyptic adventure is one of Netflix’s best and most tense recent productions, which raises an accelerated end of the world when, for unknown reasons, people are unable to sleep. Exhaustion, aggressiveness, paranoia and, finally, hallucinations to which only a girl who can fall asleep escapes. A tiny piece of tension to devour in one breath.
And more apocalypse, albeit chillingly dry and realistic. The Mexican Michel Franco tells in this film that it takes place almost in real time and without cuts what happens when a social revolution breaks out, sweeping away high-society wedding attendees. It won the Grand Jury Prize in Venice and it is an ambiguous, direct and very uncomfortable film.
Little by little (sadly, little by little) David Cronenberg’s son, Brandon, He is forging a career that is comparable in themes and aesthetics to the first steps of his father’s filmography. So it was in the great ‘Antiviral’, and now he repeats in ‘Possessor Uncut’, a disturbing film in which an elite assassin, using brain implant technology, takes control of the bodies of other people to carry out her work. Things get complicated for her when she is trapped inside a strange mind. The neo-new meat.
The great annual event for video game fans, which was interrupted last year due to the pandemic. This year it returns in digital format, and with a few unavoidable appointments between tomorrow Saturday and next Tuesday. We will be at the foot of the canyon telling you the most interesting things, and here we will tell you how to see it.
‘Ratchet & Clank: A New Dimension’
One of the flagship Playstation franchises returns in a sequel that does not innovate too much the classic action mechanics, platforms and crazy arsenals of the franchise, but thanks to the enormous power of Playstation 5 it becomes a true technological spectacle.

‘Guilty Gear: Strive’
Mythical saga for very coffee growers of the fighting genre thanks to the originality and sophistication of many of its mechanics and its very special aesthetics. At a time when we do not have the overload in the market for quality titles of other times, ‘Guilty Gear’ returns ready to claim a throne that has always been occupied by franchises with more money to invest in marketing thanks to a reinforced game system online and to strategies that distance their fighters from those of other titles, such as stringing together overwhelming combos that end rounds in a matter of seconds.
- Available for PS4, PS5 and PC
‘Video game studio’
A game that, despite its apparent simplicity and even a certain childishness, it is a perfect tool to create video games or simply better understand how they work your internal processes. Although it begins in a very elementary way, it soon triggers the possibilities by introducing mathematical and logical questions, but always in an accessible way. Another unclassifiable product from the most popular Nintendo.
- Available for Nintendo Switch
