Weekly Recommendation: The Devils Backbone

recommendationOver the weekend I watched ‘Mama’ which is produced by Guillermo Del Toro, and was amazed at the work he manages to get out of younger and newer directors when focuses on a genre he knows well- Ghost stories. This made me a nostalgic for some of Del Toro’s earlier work and the first film that came to mind as a complete work of brilliance was ‘The Devils Backbone’ so it’s this weeks recommendation.

Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim was a huge movie, at least outside of the United States, where it made a whopping 75% of its total gross income. Not only is this a real rarity but this is the real reason anyone was looking to make a sequel to this movie, which if you’ve seen thoroughly deserves a sequel as the first movie was a great example of a modern Kaiju film.

‘The Strain’ New Teasers

The_Strain_Early_Promotional_ArtI’m going to get this out of the way- but I love Guillermo Del Toro and anything he touches, but ‘The Strain’ series of novels is superb without my rose tinted glasses. This is a series that really will redefine the way that Vampires are shown on television- there will be no more shining in the daylight or lusting after some alone time with humans (well only to eat) this will showcase the best of vampires and that’s their total desire to eat, conquer and repeat.

FX announced that they were developing this show at the end of last year- and i have been following it eagerly awaiting the release this summer. And this week has seen a host of new short teasers, some of which give you a good taste of whats to come in the show, so check them out. Continue reading
