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.

Outlander 4×13 ‘Man of Worth’: Live Recap

For the past 24 hours, I have been apprehensive about writing this recap, because it meant that, once I did it, the Droughtlander would begin. Again. But I can’t postpone the inevitable, so here we go. To make the wait for season 5 shorter, I have Seven Stones to Stand or Fall, and I got The Fiery Cross from the library, although I don’t know if I will read it because a) I enjoy being surprised by the events on the show, and b) it looks looooong. Not that I don’t like long books (I read Ken Follett’s in a weekend), but, you know, I don’t know if I want to invest my time on a book that might make me dislike season 5 later on. I’m torn.

Outlander 4×12 ‘Providence’: Live Recap

 

This is the episode where Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe had a blast, because I am sure they spent the week away on some tropical resort taking advantage of their holiday time.

Outlander 4×11 ‘If Not For Hope’: Live Recap

I just hope things will get better from now on, because these past  few episodes have been a down-fest. I don’t know, at least I know we are getting John Grey back on this episode. How he always manages to casually be around the Frasers, I don’t know, but I won’t complain if it means he returns. 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

Outlander 4×09 ‘The Birds & The Bees’: Live Recap

I wish Starz would stop SPOILING the episodes. I have known for a week now that Brianna and Jamie are going to meet on this episode. Why couldn’t they let me be surprised? I hate it. Continue reading

Outlander 4×07 ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’: Live Recap

This is it. I haven’t read the books (and I probably won’t, because I know they would make me see the show with skeptic eyes), but I have the feeling things are finally going to start happening this season. Not that it’s been uneventful so far, but you have to admit, by episode 7 in previous seasons, so much more had happened. Continue reading
