Dunkirk

I want to start by saying that I might have some nightmares of bombs exploding tonight after seeing Dunkirk, in the front row, on IMAX. I should have expected there were going to be a lot of explosions during a war movie where they rescue 300,000 men from a war zone, because that's what the … Continue reading Dunkirk

The Big Sick

I love seeing romantic-comedies and I would love it more if they were true stories, I mean, how awesome would it be if The Wedding Singer or Love Actually were true stories? Well, today I saw that true story romantic comedy, it's called The Big Sick, but I didn't know this until the end. In … Continue reading The Big Sick

Wonder Woman

Today I went to the movies with one of the strongest women I know, my mom, to watch Wonder Woman. It was weird that she wanted to see a superhero movie, but not that she wanted to see a woman kick some butt. The movie did not disappoint, it told the story of the amazon … Continue reading Wonder Woman

“The Last Word”, the life of a writer

When I said I wanted to be a writer many people told me "you're gonna be broke", you wont find a job", "te vas a morir de hambre" (you're gonna go hungry). I didn't listen, because I wanted to write, that's what I love doing and they always told me "you have to love what … Continue reading “The Last Word”, the life of a writer

Tale as old as Time

Just in case, if you have seen the new Beauty and the Beast but have seen the original, 1991 animated version, don't worry, there are no spoilers here. If you haven't seen the 1991 or 2017 version I must insist that you go watch both movies, 1991 first, then 2017. With that said, I am … Continue reading Tale as old as Time

Imagine my … Continue reading Our childhood favorites are coming back!

Hidden Figures- A story we should have known

In school we learned all about how man went to space, then went to the moon, we learned the years, the names of the astronauts, but we didn’t learn about the people behind all of that, just that it was people at NASA. But we didn’t hear about the group of African American women who … Continue reading Hidden Figures- A story we should have known

Looking forward to “Beauty and the Beast”

I can't wait for March 16! Why? Because on March 16, the remake of Beauty and the Beast comes to theaters in Puerto Rico. Yay! Yes, this is the child in me speaking, not María but full on Kiki (my nickname and a some times I feel like it's kind of the child in me, … Continue reading Looking forward to “Beauty and the Beast”

La La Land

I saw the trailer for a happy movie, a musical, a comedy, a romance, no violence, no killing, no war, the kind of movie that just gets you away from the real world, with Ryan Gosling. We have him in a musical, that is both comedy and romantic, do I need to say anything else? … Continue reading La La Land

My opinion on Jackie

Well, first of all I want to wish my older brother a very happy birthday. (You still haven't said anything about your gift. I'm waiting. Did you like it???) I should also mention that January 3 was also my late great grandfather's birthday, who would have been 110 years old today. I wish I could … Continue reading My opinion on Jackie
