Another weekend is coming and that means that in Espinof we are going to review the best cinema that can be seen free open on a Spanish national television channel. Today I have chosen seven films. As usual, those movies that you have not seen or of which you no longer remember practically anything are left out.

Friday July 30

‘Back to the future III’

The least accomplished of the trilogy, it is true, but this kind of western by Robert Zemeckis continues to have its charm, largely due to the undeniable chemistry shared by Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.

‘Deep Rising’

Deep rising

Before ‘The Mummy’, Stephen Sommers already left a good feeling with this film that mixes horror, action and sea monsters. A good pastime that knows not to take things seriously to entertain the viewer.

‘This house is a ruin’

This house is a ruin

A mythical comedy from the 80s starring Tom Hanks and Shelley Long. Everything that could go wrong comes out in the worst possible way – with pleasant results for the viewer – for a couple who believe they have found a real real estate bargain.

‘Final Destination 5’

Final destination

One of the most stimulating installments of this peculiar horror franchise. He knows very well how to respect the style of it and at the same time find a way to surprise the viewer.

A cross between comedy and thriller of the most particular that relies mainly on its wonderful star trio formed by Cate Blanchett, Bruce Wills and Billy Bob Thornton. It also has some change of tone that in other hands would have condemned it to catastrophe, but Barry Levinson knows how to handle himself with ease.

‘Dog Soldiers’

Dog Soldiers Scene

The debut of Neil Marshall is a violent show of humor, action and horror with werewolves in which it is true that the lack of budget is noticeable, but in return it has a momentum that many others almost would like.

A wonderful black comedy by Álex de la Iglesia with echoes of the mythical comic ’13 Rue del Percebe ‘. It also has an outstanding cast headed by an excellent Carmen Maura.

Any film that has already appeared in a similar post in the last six months is discarded for the main selection. I do not want to reward the continuous reissues of some titles, but that does not mean that you may be interested to know that you can also see:
