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.

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

On Stranger Things 2

Sequels can be tricky. Most times, you can’t help but compare it to the original, and we know they usually pale by comparison. Luckily for us, that wasn’t the case with Stranger Things 2. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×13 Review: Between Two Times

Let’s just forget that this might be the last episode ever of El Ministerio del Tiempo, and discuss: wasn’t it the best way to end a season/series? Full of self-references, not just to previous plots of the show, but to the behind-the-scenes story as well. But let’s start from the beginning. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×12 Review: Time Setbacks

I am not going to start talking about how El Ministerio del Tiempo is being mistreated, because then I’d have to write 10,000 words on it. Instead, let me focus on how great the penultimate episode of this third (last?) season was. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×11 Review: Time of Verbena

Every episode of El Ministerio del Tiempo makes me laugh, but if I had to choose the most hilarious one, the story that had me rolling on the floor, that would be the mission where Angustias has to talk Napoleon into freeing some prisoners. Even Hugo Silva (Pacino) admitted that he couldn’t stop laughing when he first read the script. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×09 Review: the Schism of Time

El Ministerio del Tiempo has always made something very clear: you can travel to the past, but you can’t visit the future. That’s what Salvador has always stated. 2017 is the last stop, and there is no going forward. But now, that so-called rule might change forever. Do we want to see what’s beyond our present? Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×08 Review: Time of Conquest

I’m not telling you anything new when I say that, after the Spanish discovery of America, plenty of natives were treated poorly and stripped of their culture and belongings. Well, this is the story of the Spaniard who did in fact respect their traditions. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×04 Review: Time of the Enlightened

What an interesting history Spain has, so full of world-wide known celebrated characters. We know painters like Goya through their works, but there is much more behind the canvas, and that is the sort of thing we get to learn with El Ministerio del Tiempo. Continue reading
