Alan Moore brings out the masked superheroes, Ryan Reynolds embarks on a wacky new comedy, ‘Ghost of Tsushima’ is extended with eight hours of extra gameplay, Herbert West never tires of reviving corpses. Let it not be said that because it is in August we are going to spend the weekend with our arms crossed.
A overwhelming mix of comedy, magic and sheer eccentricity in what is the first original screenplay by master Alan Moore for film, that leaves no head puppet in an acid noir set in his eternal hometown of Northampton. Moore attacks even masked superheroes, how could it be less, with the story of a detective hired to find a missing jewel, a mission for which he will have to survive mobsters who practice voodoo and the occasional vampire. Available on Filmin until August 26.
In the final stretch of a summer that little by little begins to resume the customs of the billboards full of great premieres, this Action comedy that satirizes all the clichés, customs and nonsense typical of video games. A kind of virtual ‘The Truman Show’ in which Ryan Reynolds is a secondary pupa in any video game who realizes his condition as an inhabitant of a world ruled by others and decides to take the reins.
Curiously in tune with ‘Free Guy’, this Korean production portrays a virtual world, but from the other side: that of a gamer of success who is actually an unemployed young man without much benefit. When he is mistakenly accused of robbing a bank, he will use his wits and that of his fellow digital wanderers to prove his innocence, in a hodgepodge of drama. teen, comedy and action very Korean taste.
‘Battlebots’ (Season 1 and 2)
Tremendous robotic skirmishes in a mix of reality, contest and wrestling broadcast whose first two seasons (one of 6 and the other of 11 episodes) are now coming to Netflix. From the construction of the fearsome ingenuities to their confrontation with grease and steel in apocalyptic rings, in a series not recommended for fans of ‘Short Circuit’.
Podcast: ‘Crimes. The musical’
El Extraordinario is a repository of excellent quality podcasts that so far only have three programs running, but all three are highly recommended. ‘Vacunas’ reviews the history of these drugs in an entertaining way, with a lot of data and an informative approach; ‘The fucking human condition’ talks about topics as varied as the echo, the smell or the garbage, often with very interesting scientific touches; but our favorite is’ Crimes. The musical ‘, a compilation of mythical crimes of the Spanish black chronicle, with an approximation between the sociological, the forensic and the morbid.
‘Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut’
A great opportunity to expand the experience of what was the last Playstation 4 blockbuster, an excellent adventure, with an impeccable atmosphere and aesthetics, which took the player to feudal Japan to face a historic Mongol invasion alone. This new version can be purchased independently or used to increase the initial game by 19.99 euros and includes, in addition to abundant technical improvements for PS5, a DLC with a new island with an additional eight hours of gameplay.

The director of the remembered ‘Valiant Hearts’ presents an ambitious indie production in which you will have to hitch a ride from a sinister country. The novelty is that here roads and landscapes are procedurally generated, so no two trips are the same. Each trip or escape lasts between thirty and sixty minutes and will have to make decisions that affect means of transport, interactions with other characters and puzzles to be solved.

‘Axiom Verge 2’
Although it made its debut a couple of weeks ago, we can’t resist bringing this rabidly indie delicacy back (it is programmed, like its predecessor, by a single person, Thomas Happ) and that recovers the pixelated flavor of 16-bit adventures. With a typically metroidvania exploration mechanic, we leave the setting of furious science-fiction to enter a more dreamlike environment and typical of more suggestive fantasies, with jumps between real, virtual and dream worlds.
