Be positive and don’t lose hope

Today I saw, for the first time, Me before you. I had not watched it before because it seemed like it would be one of those movies which you fall in love with the character and then something tragic happens, but another writer recommended it to me for help with my book. I was looking for … Continue reading Be positive and don’t lose hope

Every 21 seconds- Trailer

Remember a few months ago when I talked about the upcoming movie "Every 21 minutes"? I have been wondering if it was really coming soon because I hadn't heard anything else about it. I finally found the trailer and I can't wait to see it. I know it will be tough to see that because … Continue reading Every 21 seconds- Trailer

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

“My Beautiful Broken Brain”

This later came together in a documentary called My Beautiful Broken Brain. The documentary begins showing us her cerebral hemorrhage. After she regains … Continue reading “My Beautiful Broken Brain”

The film will show his rehabilitation and what it means living life with a TBI.

“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

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

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I just got home from watching Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. I want to say a lot about it but I don't like spoilers so I wont spoil it for anyone. This movie takes place right before the beginning of Episode One and we see some familiar characters. The crowd went wild every time … Continue reading Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

It was a weird feeling, being in a full movie theatre and hearing that opening music again. We went back into the Wizarding World for the ninth time, but this time we went back in time to 1926 in New York City. We were not going to Hogwarts and we weren't in England, it was … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

Florence Foster Jenkins

A usual Friday, I spent the whole day thinking I would go to the gym after my parents came home from work, but as soon as my mom came home she said she wanted to go to the movies. Going to the movies and sitting in a cold theater sounded like a much better idea … Continue reading Florence Foster Jenkins

Superheroes get hurt, just like you and me

Today we tried to see Captain America: Civil War for the second time, but tonight we got in to see the movie. I found this movie, as well as the other Marvel movies I have seen, very entertaining. I don't know that much of the superheroes' history, as my brother does, but I can still … Continue reading Superheroes get hurt, just like you and me
