El Ministerio del Tiempo 1×01 Review: Time Is What it Is

I have been a fan of El Ministerio del Tiempo since its inception back in 2015. How couldn’t I? Isabel had just ended, and here were its creators, the Olivares brothers (RIP Pablo), giving us a time travelling show that starred king Fernando himself and was going to have a cameo by the queen and Cisneros, plus many of the actors were going to reappear playing different characters.

Film Review: Deadpool 2

Deadpool has returned, but you all knew that already, didn’t you? What with all the insane marketing campaigning. Which I loved. Continue reading

I come a bit late to this party (because I was out on a holiday), but we should celebrate. Continue reading

Why This Is Us is the Best You Can Watch Right Now

TV dramas. We are saturated with them. We have thousands of choices. Who hasn’t spent half an hour on Netflix trying to decide what to watch, only to hopelessly give up? Luckily, most of the television being made right now is top-notch. The Golden Age. TV in its prime. But it seems to be focusing on cable and streaming services, and we are forgetting that network television is not just syndicated shows and sit-coms. Continue reading

Black Mirror Review: Hang The DJ

I don’t usually review Black Mirror episodes. On one hand, because I enjoy just watching them, without the pressure of having to take notes and then talk about them. And on the other hand, because they are so grim that, by the time they are done, I’m curled up on the couch rocking myself while holding my legs and staring blankly into nothing while thinking, “this is going to happen to us. It’s coming and we are doing nothing to prevent it.” Continue reading

My Favourite TV Shows in 2017

twice upon a time cuddle

The year is ending and, let’s be honest: with this new age of Golden Television, we are also given too much. There are so many TV shows being made that we can’t watch them all, and not all of them can be good. Continue reading

Doctor Who Review: Twice Upon A Time

I always cry when a Doctor leaves, regardless of the episode. It is, after all, the end of an era. Their final speeches are always related to their actual stint playing the iconic role, and it’s their way of saying goodbye. Eccleston saying he was brilliant, Tennant acknowledging he didn’t want to go, Smith asserting he would always remember when he played the Doctor, and now self-proclaimed Who fan Capaldi letting go of the character he’s played for the past three years. Continue reading

I Watched Tommy Wiseau’s The Room and I Have So Many Questions

For the past few months, I have been looking forward to seeing The Disaster Artist. Sadly, it’s not released in Spain until the very end of December, so I thought I’d make the most of it and finally watch The Room, because I have read that it would be so much better if I saw James Franco’s film having knowledge of the baby that set things in motion. And boy, did that blow my mind. Continue reading

Very Short Guide of What Justice League Could Have Improved

It is pointless to write a full on review about Justice League. If I say it’s the worst, I’d be lying, because I have seen worse movies. Continue reading

Film Review: Marrowbone

Juan Antonio Bayona is the king of the horror thriller, of making you doubt what you’re seeing, of keeping you on the edge of your seat, so it should come as no surprise that his disciple, Sergio G. Sánchez, does the same on their latest mind-blowing project, Marrowbone (in Spain, The Secret of Marrowbone). Continue reading
