‘How to conquer Hollywood’

Get shorty. United States, 1995 (100 minutes). Director: Barry Sonnenfeld. Performers: John Travolta, Gene Hackman, Rene Russo.

Barry Sonnenfeld makes, on a novel by Elmore Leonard and the role of John Travolta, another fun study of the fauna of Hollywood. With a lot of sense of humor, he narrates the life of a mafia thug who goes outside the classic canons of the character – instead of killing the defaulter that his bosses order him, he wants to collaborate with him on the script of a movie – and becomes in film producer.

‘Sleepy Hollow’

United States, 1999 (97 minutes). Director: Tim Burton. Performers: Christina Ricci, Johnny Depp, Miranda Richardson, Michael Gambon.

‘Saving Private Ryan’

Saving Private Ryan. United States, 1998 (162 minutes). Director: Steven Spielberg. Cast: Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Edward Burns, Tom Sizemore, Jeremy Davis, Vin Diesel.

Undoubtedly, one of the great war productions in the history of cinema and one of the most violent and stark portraits of World War II. In it, the King Midas of cinema, Steven Spielberg, does, as was the case in Schindler’s List and The Sun’s empire, a deep reflection on this armed conflict following the best tradition of war cinema with deep anti-war convictions. Splendid cast, led by an impressive Tom Hanks, for an Oscar-winning film that achieved resounding success around the world and with which Spielberg pays tribute to those who participated in that war. Very good.

‘The Score (A masterstroke)’

The score. United States, 2001 (119 minutes). Director: Frank Oz. Performers: Robert de Niro, Edward Norton, Marlon Brando.

Having Robert de Niro and Marlon Brando in a movie is a luxury. But it is no less true that this privilege should not have belonged to Frank Oz, an irregular director who combines successes such as In & out and failures like Bowfinger, the rogue. Thus, an entertaining example of cinema about perfect robberies that raised its quality thanks to the talent of both godparents.

18.51 / Movistar Comedy

‘Heroes out of orbit’

Galaxy Quest. United States, 1999 (98 minutes). Director: Dean Parisot. Performers: Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub.

Dean Parisot had a well-known and unbalanced cast, led by Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver, to shoot this entertaining, if not brilliant, parody of the hit cult series Star Trek. Some gags with grace and little else for a film that responds to almost all the topics of commercial cinema.
