2 – ‘Sonic’ (cinema)
The “ Sonic ” live-action zum zum zum began long before it hit the big screen – in fact, it started on the day the trailer was released and audiences fell on the stick in saying that the games’ most famous porcupine had gained an odd aesthetic. Paramount has since remade the scenes for Sonic with a new aesthetic and the film ended up surprising and appealing to anyone who went to watch it in February, when we still had no idea what was going to happen.
3 – ‘Birds of Prey’ (cinema)
The long-awaited solo film Harlequin generated great expectations, but it didn’t draw the crowds into the cinema – either because it was a girl power film (which generated the discontent of many nerds) or because that the execution of the film divided opinion. critics and the public.

7 – “365 DNI” (Netflix)
One of the most controversial films of the year, either because of its theme (a handsome guy who kidnaps a pretty girl, who falls in love with him) or because of the sex scenes that are a little too realistic. Lots of people saw, blew up, commented on, and it remains among the most watched on Netflix today.

13 – ‘Tenet’ (cinema)
Christopher Nolan whistled until he couldn’t, saying he wanted it because he wanted his “Tenet” to hit movie bars. He entered, but the public did not go. And those who were, did not understand.
