Film Review: Toy Story 4

I must admit that, when I heard they were making a fourth Toy Story, my reaction was pessimistic. What was the need? Aren’t we overstuffed with sequels? Toy Story 3 had brought the perfect ending to this tale. Continue reading

Films To Watch on Valentine’s Day if You Are a Sarcastic, Sceptic Being

I have never cared for Valentine’s Day. Honestly. Whether I am single or not, I have always thought of the day as a consumerist excuse to buy presents just because, with the added pressure of failing if the present is not the best. I really don’t see the point, because couples already have their anniversaries to celebrate -in fact, that is what they should celebrate, not just some random day fairly close to Christmas. Continue reading

Film Review: Aquaman

It is difficult to review a superhero film, because the scale is different. How am I going to talk about a comic book movie and put it in the same scale as your typical Oscar-bait tear-jerker? Which is something film critics should stop doing, by the way. But at least I can say this: even the worst Marvel film is better than the best DC one. Continue reading

Netflix has Mastered Teen Movies -Grown-Up Ones, not so Much

I hadn’t planned to review nor recap any of those Netflix films you decide to watch at night in the comfort of your couch, let alone write a whole mini-essay on them. But after one too many bored nights of scrolling through what the Netflix Al-Gore-rhythm (bless you, Titus) recommended, I noticed a pattern that is sticking: the films for teenagers are good, and the ones oriented at adults tend to be total crap -yes that is the scientific term for it. Continue reading

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

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

What I Loved the Most About Thor: Ragnarok

I already decided a long time ago that I am not going to write reviews of movies I know in advance I’m going to love. What’s the point? I can’t write an objective review if I spend a thousand words praising it like it’s the end of the world. Continue reading
