Recovering classics like Marvel’s Dracula or Dick’s electric sheep, taking on the best off-road races in Dirt 5 or claiming a science-fiction gem that went unnoticed as ‘Oblivion’. This weekend you have work, but the one you like. These are our recommendations of leisure and culture for the two days (or more, depending on where you live) that you have ahead.
‘Oblivion’ (Netflix and Amazon Prime Video)
Tom Cruise is not only ‘Mission: Impossible’ and it shows in this science fiction production that something went unnoticed, but that boasts a production design and interesting special adventure story that deserved better luck. In it, Cruise is one of the last drone technicians stationed on Earth, extracting vital resources after decades of war against a threat known as the scavs. An intriguing starting point for a highly recoverable post-apocalyptic incident.
‘What Silver Lake Hides’ (Filmin)
David Robert Mitchell, who surprised locals and strangers with the superb ‘It Follows’ once again did not allow himself to be pigeonholed with his next film, ‘What Silver Lake Hides’, a mixture of not to go Angelino, conspiracyism and rare science fiction that became one of the most refreshing and unclassifiable proposals of 2018. In it, A young man sets out on a surreal search for a strange girl, and discovers a mystery rooted in the very origins of the city… and beyond.
‘Dirt 5’ (PC, PS4 and Xbox One)
If you have no intention of getting on the next-gen yet, perhaps you can start opening your mouth with a game between the one we are enjoying right now and the one that is coming our way: ‘Dirt 5’ is perfect if you are into arcade racing and with good mud flats, in a simulator off-road at full speed and that comes with the seal of the mythical saga of Codemasters. Perfect if you like to bog down your tires to the hock.
‘Katamari Damacy Reroll’ (PS4 and Xbox One)
Although this remake of the PS2 cult classic already came out for PC and Switch in 2018, it’s worth it. recover it for its extravagance, its devastating imagination and how well it stands the test of time. It works like an experiment with the controller sticks used to roll a cosmic trash ball like a dung beetle. And all because the Great King of the Cosmos has accidentally destroyed the stars in the sky. Classic Japaneseism.
‘Dracula Library. Dracula’s Tomb ‘by Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan
A true Marvel classic from the seventies, which returns to Spanish stores with a collection of ten volumes that will include the entire original collection. Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan gave birth to a true classic of the most colorful Gothic, which came to impact pop culture tremendously, including a creepy anime memory and the very saga ‘Castlevania’.
‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ by Philip K. Dick
Now, now. You have read it a thousand times. Or perhaps not, because not in vain this is one of the novels that, due to the fame of ‘Blade Runner’ that has buried it, more erroneous preconceptions awakens from all of Dick’s work. Paranoia, artificial life, religion as a narcotic and other key elements of the master’s work come together in a less known book than it should be and which Minotaur puts back on the shelves in a brand new paperback edition.
