Political activist Malcolm X, boxer Cassius Clay (later Muhammad Ali), American football star Jim Brown and singer Sam Cooke met one night in Miami in February 1964 to celebrate a victory by the athlete.

Recommended Disney+ Movies

Turning Red (Dome Shi)

First of all, we recommend a film that explores female adolescence. Meilin is 13 years old and one day she wakes up turned into a huge red bear, a wonderful metaphor for puberty. There is not much more that can be said without ruining it, so you better not miss it.

Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers (Akiva Schaffer)

Second, we bring you the pair of chipmunks Chip N’ Dale, who made life miserable for Pluto (Mickey Mouse’s dog) and Donald Duck. Well, they came back and with a movie that mixes reality with cartoons, with a crazy story, in the best style of Who cheated on roger rabbit?

Lightyear (Angus McLane)

We could not leave out of this list the premiere of the film dedicated to the Toy Story astronaut; although the movie Lightyear was censored in 14 countries for some controversial scenes, it ended up being one of the most popular premieres of 2022 on the Disney platform.

Luca (Enrico Casarosa)

It tells the story of a teenage sea monster who dreams of surfacing to meet her and make new friends, but his overprotective mother keeps him isolated from said world for fear he might get hurt.

Charm (Byron Howard and Jared Bush)

If you like animated films, we tell you that there is something for everyone, from children’s (such as some of Disney’s) to anime, such as those produced by Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, my neighbor totoro and others).

HBO Recommended Movies

dunes (Denis Villeneuve)

It is an adaptation of the science fiction book of the same name and not the 1984 film (directed by David Lynch), according to the director himself. It tells the story of Paul Atreides, a young man whose destiny is to travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his people.

The Many Saints Of Newark (Alan Taylor)

It is the story of the Soprano and Moltisanti mafia families, set in the late sixties, described by critics as a master class on how to make a prequel, referring to the famous television series.

batman (Matt Reeves)

Robert Pattinson plays the vampire man in a film that brings together the best of the Gotham City antihero. Far from reinventing the character, in this story we can see nods to the best and worst moments of the DC bat in film and television.

Elvis (Baz Luhrman)

It is a biopic based on the life of the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, especially his decline, of which his manager is accused. In this film, said character tries to defend himself by insinuating that the singer sank because of love.

king richard (Renaldo Marcus Green)

Finally, we recommend another biopic, but this time sports. Will Smith shines in his role as the father of the famous tennis players Venus and Serena Williams, humanizing the character, taking him out of the extremes in which they always place this type of mentor: he is neither a devil nor God, just a father.
