Based on naturalist Gerald Durrell's books about your experience as a child on the Greek islands ("My family and other animals", "Bugs and other relatives" y "The garden of the gods"), The Durrells is an endearing four-season British sitcom that conveys a love of life and nature through the routine of an English family looking to rebuild their lives in small, paradisiacal Corfu in the 1930s.

The series has been nominated for four BAFTA awards (including best drama series) and has a record audience in the United Kingdom. In addition, the cast includes Josh O'Connor (Prince Charles in the third installment of "The Crown") and Keeley Hawes ("bodyguard"). In short, a pleasant entertainment for all audiences.

Director: James Cameron

Screenplay: James Cameron, Rick Ja a and Amanda Silver

Cast: Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver Music: Simon Franglen


Jake Sully lives with his new family on the extrasolar moon Pandora. Together they will witness the return to their world of a familiar threat that may end their world once and for all. Jake will have to work with Neytiri and the race. Na'vi to protect your home.

Sequel to the blockbuster Avatar 1, and a box-office record in its own right since its first weeks, this is a film that is far from perfect - it has problems with the origin of the conflict and its villain, above all - but, in its simplicity, it recovers the adventure films of the 50s and 60s. Among its other virtues are its strong defense of the traditional family, its spectacular nature and its incredible 3D. The perfect opportunity to go to the movies with the family, even if the footage is a bit bloated (3 hours and 12 minutes).
