Six must-see plans for the weekend: ‘Super Mario 3D World’, Spawn, ‘Becky’ and much more
Among demonic beings the thing goes: Bowser is usually a good-natured and affable villain, but in the brand new ‘Bowser’s Fury’ he lives up to the title of the game and becomes a fearsome kaiju; and Spawn, a genuine infernal spawn, becomes human (but still savage) in the new compilation of his wild adventures. If you have time left between so much sulfur, you may find some heavenly balm in that “‘John Wick’ in the code of a 13-year-old girl” that is ‘Becky’ or in some of the other leisure proposals we have for this weekend.
‘The map of perfect instants’
Curiously coinciding with a premiere with a similar theme, ‘Palm Springs‘on Movistar +, this film of loops in time and infatuated teenagers starts from an identical starting line: two young people with very different characters coincide in the same time loop that makes them relive the same day and again. Room for existential angst or the perfect love story? Possibly both, in an Amazon Original that guarantees teenage cucamonas and romantic paradoxes.
Another film that Movistar + recovers from among the premieres that have remained unreleased in theaters due to the pandemic. In this case, a forceful reformulation of the films of home invasion with an amazing Kevin James giving everything in a brutal dramatic role. The Becky of the title is Lulu Wilson, a rebellious teenager who spends an isolated weekend with her widowed father in a house. But a group of escaped convicts break into the place and the young woman will have to take action on the matter.
‘Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury’
What seemed like a compromise addition to the Switch catalog, with the revival of one of the best Wii U games (if not the best) and a little extra in the form of ‘Bowser’s Fury’, turns into an unexpected wonder. Not only does ‘Super Mario 3D World’ work better than ever on Switch, it’s that ‘Bowser’s Fury’ is much more than just DLC. It is a game that could have been released with all the honors as a standalone title and that expresses the constants of the best recent games of the plumber: mixing the possibilities of the open worlds with a unique and novel mechanic the classic 2D style.
- Now available for Nintendo Switch
‘Little Nightmares 2’
El primer ‘Little Nightmares’, thanks to its unique blend of thematic naivety and visual wickedness, it proposed the little nightmare that promised the title, and that curdled in one of the best horror adventures indie of the last times. This new installment aims at more of the same, but something more refined: puzzles, platforms and stealth with a new protagonist, Mono, who will be accompanied by Six, the heroine of the first part.
- Ya disponible para PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One
‘Pioneers of Russian science fiction’ (various authors)
Ten unpublished stories in Spanish that they are the perfect introduction to one of the most fascinating variants of science fiction: the one produced in Russia at different points in its troubled history. If you’ve already read ‘Aelita’ or ‘Stalker’, you know what to expect: abstraction, metaphysics and why not, a very special concept of adventure and imagination. Here you have trips to Mars, epidemics in the South Pole, trips to the future via hypnosis or encounters with aliens of excessive intelligence. A true journey to the extremes of the genre.
‘Spawn – Hell on Earth’ (Erik Larsen and Todd McFarlane)
Erik Larsen and Todd McFarlane are in charge of numbers 263 to 275 of the long-running series ‘Spawn’, which Planeta has been collecting in volumes for some time. In this case, Spawn, the spawn with powers from hell who hides a human under his monumental cloak, has just saved Wanda and her son not born to fall into the clutches of Satan. But that leads him to suffer an unexpected effect: he becomes human again. A definitive twist on his prolonged suffering or another stage in his fight against the powers of heaven and hell?
