[•REC] 4 Review

REC 4

I’m not a big fan of Spanish cinema, but I love horror movies and this saga is amazing!! I can’t believe it’s already been 7 years since the first movie came out and scared the shit out of everyone from Spain and many countries. It was so successful that it even had a Hollywood remake called Quarantine. I always prefer the American versions of horror movies, like The Grudge or The Ring, but in this case I really recommend you to watch the original version!

The second movie wasn’t as good as the first one, but did explain lots of things and why everything happened. It also had a very unexpected ending so it was really good too. Then the third one was an awesome action/zombie-killing movie but it lost the essence of the first two movies so I wouldn’t count it as part of the saga. I really loved it though!  Continue reading

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I Review

Mockingjay Part 1

Two weekends ago I went to see the new The Hunger Games movie Mockingjay Part I. I haven’t have time to do a review so I’m doing it now. First of all I want to say that I haven’t read the books so I’m judging this movie for what it is, a movie, and not how faithful it is to the book, because, again I haven’t read it.

So, I really liked the first movie of the saga, I even got the DVD. I thought the idea was brilliant and the movie was really awesome. Then I thought I liked the second one too, but while watching the third installment I remembered that I didn’t like it very much. It was too boring and all the action happened in the last 10 minutes.  Continue reading

Baby Don’t Lie – Gwen Stefani Review

Gwen Stefani - Baby Don't Lie

I told you on Saturday that Gwen Stefani was releasing a new single today and it’s finally here! I told you guys how excited I was for the news, but now I’m telling you I’m very disappointed. First time I listened I didn’t really like it, then with a few more listens it grew a little on me, but still I’m not loving it.

I was expecting a lot more from Miss Stefani, she’s always been so ahead of the pop tendencies, her past two solo albums were beyond amazing, but this song is just like any other song on the charts today. Again, I don’t hate it and I know it grew more and more on me, but I’m very disappointed. Listen to the song below and judge yourselves!  Continue reading

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Review

TMNT

This Friday was finally the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiere in Spain. I’ve been waiting a long time to see this movie, not because the TMNT, but because of Megan Fox. I loved the Turtles as a kid, but the previews movies weren’t very good, so I didn’t expect much from this one either.

I think it was good that I had that mentality, because the movie blew me away!! Of course it wasn’t a deep Oscar worthy movie, but I really really enjoyed it!! I grew up in the 90’s and I loved the TMNT cartoons and this movie really made me feel like a kid again.  Continue reading

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review

Sin City - A Dame To Kill For

I finally got to watch Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. First of all I want to say that I’ve been 8 years waiting for this movie and I am so mad that it wasn’t released to Spanish cinemas. They are saying it’s because it flopped in the USA box office, but I think there’s more than that. It can’t be a coincidence that the last three movies Robert Rodriguez has done, Spy Kids 4, Machete Kills and now this one, didn’t make it to the cinemas here. If that was the case, many movies wouldn’t have come to Spain, not only this one. I think there’s something happening, but nobody seems to care as much as I do.

Anyways, going back to the film, I have to say that I really enjoyed it! I waited until I found a medium quality link to watch it online, because I refuse to wait until the DVD or Blu Ray comes next year, I think I’ve waited enough time!!  Continue reading

On The Run: Beyoncé & Jay-Z HBO Special Review

Beyoncé - On The Run Tour

I finally got to watch Beyoncé and Jay-Z‘s On The Run HBO Special! I aired on Saturday, but since I live in Spain I couldn’t watch then and had to wait until today to see it. There hasn’t been any videos or anything for two days, you know, they rule the world! Haha.

I went to see Bey at her own tour earlier this year and I really enjoyed it. It was one of the best experiences of my life and when I discover later that she was going on tour with Jay just afterwards I was so mad!!! Now I can say that both concerts were epic, but her Mrs. Carter Show has nothing to envy this tour.  Continue reading

What If Review

What If

I can’t believe I forgot to do this review! I went to see this movie a couple weekends ago and I loved it!! It’s one of my favorite romantic comedies of all time! I came back from the cinema very late and went straight to sleep and then I forgot about the review, but here it is!!

I loved the movie because it’s not the typical romantic comedy where a gorgeous girl who works in a fashion magazine falls in love with a handsome business man and then he does something stupid and they fight and then make up and spend the rest of their lives together.  Continue reading

Game Of Thrones – Season 4 Review

Daenerys Targaryen - Season 4

OMG!!! I finally finished watching Game Of Thrones season 4 and I’m speechless. It took me a while to watch this season because I was shocked after the Red Wedding in season 3. All I can say is that that was nothing!!! Season 4 was brutal, I already knew you can’t like any character too much, but this season was extremely cruel!!

Finally two of the characters I hated the most are dead, I suppose you all know who am I talking about, but they also killed many MANY of my favorites!! The last two episodes were shocking to me, seriously, I don’t even know what to say.  Continue reading

The Purge: Anarchy Review

The Purge: Anarchy

I just watched The Purge: Anarchy and I have some mixed feeling about it. I really liked the first movie, but there was something missing on it. I think the idea of this movies is excellent and has a lot of potential. In this one they exploited that potential a little bit more and gave more depth to the plot and we finally get to see what happens to regular people and not only the rich ones.

I love that we get to see the differences between social classes and how they spend the Purge. I also liked how they reflect today’s society in this alternative universe and how these new Founders of the USA use this supposedly “purifying” night to their own benefit getting rid of the poor people.  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

Game Of Thrones – Season 3 Review

Daenerys Targaryen - GOT S3

OMG! I just finished watching season 3 of Game Of Thrones and I’m SHOCKED!! This season was crazy, it’s my favorite for now and I can’t even think what to say about it, I’m just speechless.

This season was amazing, but I think they should play more with the shock factor, I mean, of course it’s shocking, but they should’ve left the Red Wedding moment for the season finale and not put it in episode 9. After that I could barely pay attention to the final episode because I couldn’t even think. Continue reading

Begin Again (Movie) Review

Begin Again

I went to watch Begin Again today to the cinema and I have to say I’m really surprised. I wanted to see it since I saw the trailer a few weeks ago and Keira Knightley is always a good excuse to watch a movie, but I have to say I loved it more than I thought.

The movie was really really good. The beginning was a little confusing because they mixed some future and past scenes, but when it starts to take form it’s very impressive. Everyone was great, Keira, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine. I even liked Hailee Steinfeld, I’ve never been a big fan of her, and I loved Cathernie Keener, I was very happy to see she was on the movie. Continue reading

Sharknado 2: The Second One Review

Sharknado 2

I just watched Sharknado 2: The Second One! I had been waiting for this movie for a long time, but when it finally came out July 31st I completely forgot. Thanks Shark Week for reminding me of the movie and making me watch it instantly!!

I was very disappointed with the first one because I don’t know why but I was expecting a “good” shark movie like Deep Blue Sea or something similar to Piranha 3D. Of course it was just another shark B movie and I love watching them, but I have to admit they’re all really bad. Continue reading

Game Of Thrones – Season 2 Review

Daenerys Targaryen - GOT S2

I just finished season 2 of Game Of Thrones and though I watched faster than the first one I have to say it was a little more boring, just a little. Still it was amazing! I think the reason why it got a little boring is that nothing really happened. I mean, of course things happened and some of them were really shocking, but nothing happened at a long distance.

The seven kingdoms are at war and that’s all, but what a great war!! The final battle at King’s Landing was awesome!! I loved the wildfire explosions and I was shocked when I thought Tyrion was dead, fortunately he wasn’t!! Continue reading

Game Of Thrones – Season 1 Review

Daenerys Targaryen - GOT

I’ve been refusing to watch Game Of Thrones for a long time. I hate when movies, shows or anything get too popular and nobody talks about anything else, plus I thought it was going to be something similar to The Lord Of The Rings and movies like that, so I didn’t want to see it despite everybody telling me to do so.

Earlier this week I was bored and I didn’t know what movie to watch and I had already seen all the shows I was following, so I decided to give it a try. Thank God I did it!! I fell in love with the series in the first episode. Continue reading

Sex Tape (Movie) – Review

Sex Tape - Movie

It’s been a long time since I last laughed so hard at the cinema!!! Seriously, I couldn’t stop laughing through the whole movie. Of course this is not an Oscar movie and I hate people that say these kind of films are bad. I understand everyone is entitled to their opinion, but you have to judge movies in their context and compare them with movies from the same genre.

I don’t like The Lord Of The Rings (please don’t kill me!!!) and I don’t say it’s a bad movie, or that is the worse movie I’ve seen like people have told me about Sex Tape. I know it’s a good movie, but it’s not of my taste. Continue reading

Hilary Duff – Chasing The Sun Review

Hilary Duff - Chasing The Sun

Hilary Duff has finally released her new comeback single Chasing The Sun. Because I had pre-ordered it on iTunes I could download it yesterday night and spent hors listening to it and today I woke up to watch the music video for the song.

This song is exactly what I wanted and what I was expecting from her. It’s a very cute, fun and carefree summer song and it reminds me a lot of Hilary’s past albums with a little more mature sound.  Continue reading

Arrow Series Review

Arrow_cast

I know I haven’t posted anything in a while, but this past two weeks I’ve been hooked on The CW‘s show Arrow. I love comic books, but I’m more of a Marvel fan than a DC one. I mean, there’re lots of DC heroes that I really like, Batman, Wonder Woman, Supergirl and there’re even more DC villains that I love, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, The Joker, but I’ve never been a big fan of Green Arrow.

Two of my best friends have been insisting me to watch the show since it started in 2012, but I never listened to them.

The Curse Of Maleficent Review

MagicHourExtThis week I finally got my copy of The Curse Of Maleficent: Tale Of A Sleeping Beauty that I bought on Amazon. I was very interested in this book not for the story, because I’ve already seen the movie Maleficent, but the illustrations of this book are amazing!
