Big Hero 6 Review

Big Hero 6

OMG! I just came back from the cinema and I haven’t been this excited after watching a movie in a long time!! Today was finally the premiere of Disney‘s new film Big Hero 6 in Spain. I didn’t know what to expect about this movie. I knew it was going to be good because Disney hasn’t disappoint me yet, but I didn’t expect it to be this good!!!

First I want to talk about how amazing the concept of this movie is. It takes place in an imaginary city called San Fransokio. As you can guess it’s a blend between San Francisco and Tokyo and I have to say that it’s just amazing!! Every little detail on the city is spectacular and you can see all the hard work behind the creation of this gem.  Continue reading

Top 10 Disney Infinity – Wish List

Disney Infinity

So, Disney Infinity 2.0 is almost here and I’m getting very excited with all the new features. I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed with the first one, I loved playing the playsets, well, I only played Pirates Of The Caribbean, Monsters University, The Incredibles and Toy Story, but I really enjoyed them.

I also liked all the figures they released in the first game, but I didn’t like much the Toy Box. I consider myself a very creative person and I still found it very difficult to come up with something really cool. I liked some of the other users’ downloadable Toy Boxes, but it didn’t felt like I was playing a video game, most of them were just to explore and there wasn’t anything challenging at all.  Continue reading

Guardians Of The Galaxy Review

Guardians Of The Galaxy

I just came back from the cinema. I finally went to see Marvel‘s Guardians Of The Galaxy and I have to say that I’m a little disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, the movie was good, but I was told it was way better than Avengers and I’m sorry but it isn’t. This movie isn’t by far in my Top 5 Marvel movies, not even counting the Marvel Cinematic Universe only.

Again, it’s a good entertaining movie and it’s very funny too, but there’re moments that the jokes are too forced (I don’t know if this expression exists in English, but I’m going to use it anyway, haha) and sometimes the characters are a little predictable.  Continue reading

Top 10 Red Carpet Looks – Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana

To celebrate the success of Marvel‘s Guardians Of The Galaxy, here’re my top 10 red carpet looks from one of the stars of the movie and sure one of the most beautiful women in the world, Zoe Saldana.

Guardians Of The Galaxy hasn’t been released in Spain yet, the premiere will be August 14th here, but I’ve always liked Zoe and I’m sure she’s gonna be awesome in that movie too. I’ve liked here since one of her first roles in Britney Spears‘ movie Crossroads and I loved her even more recently when she jumped to defend Britney and say she’s got lots of respect for her and that she’s one of the most humbled and greatest people she’s ever met in Hollywood. Continue reading

Top 10 Comics that need a Movie + Actors who should star in them

Soulfire - Michael Turner

There are lots of great comic books that haven’t been adapted into movies yet that I would really like to see in the big screen. Now the superheroes are the biggest Hollywood money makers, but there’re a bunch of indie comics that are awesome too and of course some superheroes that haven’t been on screen yet.

I love strong, powerful and fearless women, those are my favorite characters and I love when they are leading characters in comic books. I also love when superheroes are funny and have a good personality like Spider-ManContinue reading

X-Men ComicCon Exclusive Posters

X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Marvel has released new exclusive X-Men: Days Of Future Past posters featuring some of the characters. I wish they had all of them, but it’s only Mystique, Quicksilver, Wolverine and a Sentinel. Check the poster out below! Continue reading

Top 10 Female Comic Book Villains

Harley & Ivy - J. Scott Campbell

One of the first posts I ever posted on this blog was a Top 10 list of female heroes from my favorite comics. (Check it out here!)

The truth is that I normally tend to like more the villains than the heroes and I don’t know why did it take me so long to do a list with my favorite ones. This happens to me not only reading comics, in movies and especially TV shows I always like the villains more than the heroes, my friends always tell me that if we lived in a comic book or a fantasy show I would be a villain, haha.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Review

x_men_days_of_future_past_movie-wide

The wait is finally over!! Today was the premiere of X-Men Days Of Future Past here in Spain and I had to see it as soon as possible. I’ve been waiting for this movie since the storyline of the Days Of Future Past comics was announced. It was supposed to be released May 25th in the world premiere of the movie, but it was delayed until today so I’ve been waiting longer than others.

Lets start saying that X-Men are my favorite Marvel heroes so this movie is a very big deal for me. I did notice that the movie was a rectification of all the mistakes they made with The Last Stand and First Class. Thank you Bryan Singer for saving and reviving this franchise that, in my opinion, died along with all the main characters in the last installment of the original X-Men trilogy.

Top 10 Universal Studios Orlando Rides

Hello everyone! I know I’ve been out for a long time, but I’ve been very busy with my classes and I also bought the new Pokemon game last week and I’ve been spending my little free time playing.

Anyways, a few weeks ago I posted my Top 10 Walt Disney World rides and promised I’d do a Top 10 Universal Studios rides soon, so here are them!

IOA_Header_tcm13-10617

I’m choosing rides from both Universal Studios and Islands Of Adventure theme parks, including all of the different islands from the second park, that means there’s going to be a lot of Harry Potter here!!

Like I did in the Disney World post, I’m going to describe my experience at Universal Orlando.

First time I was there I was 9 years old and again, I didn’t take any ride because I was scared. Last year with 21 years old I went again and had the time of my life! The difference with Disney parks is that it’s more focused on the Roller Coasters and the adrenaline part of the theme parks more than to enjoy yourself and letting your inner child live for a few days.

This time The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter was added as one of the islands from Islands Of Adventure and that’s what I enjoyed the most along with the Marvel Superhero Island.

I also loved The Simpsons zone they’re building at Universal Studios, but it wasn’t finished yet. The only thing that I didn’t like is that they closed the JAWS ride, which I was dying to take since I didn’t when I was a kid. so lets have it as a honorable mention. I saw the video my uncle took in the ride when I was little and it was so good.

So let’s begin with the list! Find out below:

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

Hi everyone! I know I’ve been a little out this week, but I finally got a little free time and I just needed to relax. I had one whole holiday week and I’ve been going to the beach, hanging out with friends and partying a little.

On Thursday I went to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere and it was really good! I still prefer the first trilogy, but this one was much better than its predecessor. I still don’t see Andrew Garfield as Spidey, but I liked the personality they gave to the character. He was a lot funnier and I loved his sense of humor, but I just think Andrew doesn’t match that persona.

Top 10 Covers by J. Scott Campbell

10007480_10151942725662581_5114465472398161039_n

J. Scott Campbell just released his three connecting Midtown Comics exclusive variant cover for The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 3 #1, #1.1 and Superior Spider-Man #31.

He’s one of my all time favorite comic book artists and I love all of his work. This year I got to do a research work on him for my history class and my teacher fell in love with his art too.

So I decided to choose my 10 favorite covers by Campbell!

Top 10 Sexiest Comic Heroes & Villains In Movies [Female Edition]

Today I finally got to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the cinema! I really enjoyed the movie, it was definitely much better than the first one. Marvel is getting better and better with every movie, I thought they wouldn’t be able to surpass The Avengers, but I was very impressed with Thor 2 and now this!

Another thing I noticed, is how sexy Black Widow was in this movie! So, I started thinking in all the heroes, heroines and villains that have been adapted in the big screen and all of them are very good looking people, what can we expect from Hollywood, right?

Top 10 Superhero Movies

The Superhero genre has become very popular now in Hollywood with all the Marvel movies coming out and The Dark Knight saga. I decided to do a top 10 with my favorites, but I’m gonna include only one movie per hero or team. It’s gonna be difficult but I’m sure I’ll come up with a good list!

This list is not about any comic book made into a movie, it’s based only in the superhero genre, so no Sin City or 300 here.

I also want to say that there’s lot of good movies I haven’t seen so don’t be mad if your favorite ones didn’t make the cut, maybe it’s because I haven’t seen it yet.

10. Captain America: The First Avenger 

I love this movie because of its historic roots and because we get to see the origins of Marvel’s biggest superhero Captain America. Though it was a little bit long for me, I really enjoyed it and can’t wait for the sequel!

9. The Wolverine

This wasn’t the best superhero movie, but it was a big surprise after the horror that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine! It was such a relief that I ended up loving this one! Plus Hugh Jackman is amazing here!!

The-Wolverine-poster

8. Fantastic 4

I know this franchise wasn’t very successful and only got two movies, but I really liked them. It’s true that the second one, Raise Of Silver Surfer, wasn’t very good, but I loved the first movie. I loved Julian McMahon playing the bad guy again like he did in Charmed and of course Jessica Alba!

fantastic-four-in-film-191

7. Blade 2

Is it crazy that I had never watched the Blade movies until last year? I know! But now that I’ve seen them all, I love them! My favorite one was Blade 2 and it was amazing! I really liked it and it was crazy to see Santiago Segura (a very famous and funny Spanish actor) in the movie!

6. Thor: The Dark World

I wasn’t a big fan of the first Thor movie, but I loved the second one! It had everything: action, drama, love and a lot of laughs! Seriously, I spent the whole movie laughing. It was really really good!

Thor-the-Dark-World

5. Iron Man

I’m not a very big fan of Iron Man in the comics, but in the movies I love him! Thanks Robert Downey Jr. His portrayal of the superhero makes it one of the best heroes ever! I love the 3 Iron Man movies, but the first one will always have that thing that makes it better!

o970

4. Batman Returns

Ok, don’t get mad! I know everyone was expecting The Dark Knight to be my pick for the Batman movie, but I really prefer the Tim Burton movies. Don’t get me wrong, I love The Dark Knight saga, but the old movies were more true to the comics and I really like them more. Plus I grew up watching them, so I have a nostalgic feeling for them. My favorite one is Batman Returns. Thanks to Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito for their amazing villain portrayals!

3. The Avengers

Ok, this is the most EPIC superhero movie that has ever been made! Everyone agrees right? I can watch this movies over and over and I don’t care how long it is, I love it! It even made me love Hulk (I didn’t really care for him before) and everyone is amazing in this! It’s just superhero perfection! Thanks Joss Whedon!

2. Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man is one of my favorite Marvel heroes and the first trilogy was amazing! Well, the third movie was a bit of a joke, but I liked them all. It’s obvious that the best one was the second one and I think everyone agrees with me on this one. It was just epic and Dr. Octopus was really great!

Spider_Man_2_Spiderman_2-924989374-large

1. X2 

And number 1 is… Of course I had to choose an X-Men movie! I know I already put The Wolverine on this list, but they have separated comics, so it’s ok! I had a very difficult time choosing between X2 and X-Men: First Class, both movies were amazingly good, but I finally chose X2! It has the original cast and it was always my favorite hero movie since I was a kid, so I had to choose it!

X2 ONE SHEET A ¥ Art Machine Job#5263 ¥ Version A ¥  02/28/03

I know I only chose one DC Comics movie and all the others are from Marvel Comics, but I don’t like Superman movies at all! And I’ve always liked Marvel heroes more!

There’re great superhero movies coming up this year, so I’ll have to change this list probably! haha

If you don’t agree you can tell me your favorite movies in the comments! Hope you enjoyed!

Yes, that’s Meryl Streep as an evil witch in Disney’s upcoming Into The Woods, a new version of Cinderella with actors like Johnny Depp, Chris Pine and Anna Kendrick. It sounds good right?

5. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (May 2)

The_Amazing_Spider-Man_2_00a

4. Captain America: Winter Soldier (April 4)

I love Captain America and I liked the first movie, but it wasn’t as good as other Marvel movies. This looks great and since Black Widow is back it’s gotta be good!

Angelina Jolie’s return to the big screen, can’t say more! This movie is just everything!! Can’t wait to watch!!

1. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (August 22)

YES! YES! YES! Thank you Robert Rodriguez for bringing back Sin City almost 10 years later!! The first one is one of my all time favorite movies and this one is gonna be good too! With most of the original cast and Jessica Alba as the lead, it’s gotta be good AWESOME!

Top 10 Female Comic Book Heroes

As you can see I love making up lists of anything and if you get to know me you’d see I’m a little obsessed with listing everything. I love reading comic books and I wanted to make my first post on the comics section with a list of my favorite female comic book heroes.

Keep in mind this is based on my personal taste only and we might disagree in some of them. For this list I only used heroes and not villains so don’t freak out if you don’t see Catwoman or Mystique on this list!! I’m planning a female villains list for another post.

Also I’m only using characters originally created for the comic book industry, so no Lara Croft or Buffy here!

So here are my favorite female heroes:

10.Storm (X-Men)

I’d like to start this list with Storm, because she’s one of my favorite X-Men. She’s got great powers and she’s a kick-ass woman. I also like her movie version, I think Halle Berry really did justice to her.

6f2a1_ORIG-Ororo_Munroe__Earth_616__018

9. Supergirl  

The Supergirl saga from Superman/Batman by Michael Turner is one of my favorite stories of the DC Universe. I like that they recreated her origins for a new and younger fan base and I really loved the result.

dc_comics_supergirl_michael_tu_1440x900_wallpapername.com

8. Kiani (Fathom)

As you can imagine I love Michael Turner, he’s my favorite comic book artist and I miss him so much. He created this amazing underwater world for his Fathom series and Kiani is one of my favorite characters. She’s a badass underwater creature that you should’t mess around with.

faki-aspentour-heroes-2013-print

7. Abbey Chase (Danger Girl)

Another of my favorite comic book artist is J. Scott Campbell and I love Danger Girl! I love all the characters of this amazing story, but Abbey is just the best. I love her sultry attitude and her looks, plus she’s got a good sense of humor! What else could you ask for?

Abbey

6. Rogue (X-Men)

Ok, Rogue has always been my favorite girl from X-Men, specially in the 90s cartoon TV show! But they really messed up in the movies!! C’mon, I don’t have anything against Anna Paquin, but I just didn’t like the way she was portrayed in the movie franchise.

Rogue2

5. Sara Pezzini (Witchblade)

Another Michael Turner creation and what an amazing woman Sara Pezzini is!! Although I stopped reading the series a few years ago, I’ve always loved Witchblade. It wasn’t only the story or the amazing art by Turner and others after him, this series just got something special and I love it!

feadd1d40ca531f02caadf62b14632e7

4. Wonder Woman

Who doesn’t love Wonder Woman? She’s the supreme leader of the amazons and is the most important female character in the DC Universe. She has great powers, strength a magic bow and an invisible plane!! She just rocks!

WonderWomanIdentityCrisisPo

3. Jean Grey/Phoenix  (X-Men)

Since the disappointment with Rogue after the X-Men movies, I had to choose a new favorite girl from the team! I didn’t only choose one, I chose two! The second one is Jean Grey. I love her as a normal mutant with her telekinetic powers, but I love her even more when she becomes the Phoenix, especially Dark Phoenix, she’s just the most powerful creature in the whole Universe. Impressive!

jean_grey_by_bobhertley-d741y0a

2. Emma Frost (X-Men)

Well, and here is my ultimate favorite X-Men girl! I love Emma Frost! The White Queen! She’s got some amazing telepathic powers and she can change her skin into diamond. She’s just awesome! I also love her sultry personality and her sense of fashion. She’s just perfect!

emma-frost-greg-horn-marvel-comics

1. Aspen Matthews (Fathom)

And of course my number 1 comic book female character has to be Aspen Matthews!! She’s a kick-ass marine biologist who discovers that she comes from an underwater species and has the ability to manipulate water. She almost causes the end of the human race, but she ended up saving us! She’s just amazing! Thanks Michael Turner for creating characters and stories like this, I miss you! RIP

Aspen_eclipse_by_AspenTurner

Again this is my personal opinion and you can tell me if you agree or not in the comments!! You can also suggest other list to make in the future!!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy!!
