April Movies to Not Fool Yourself! (¡Películas de Abril para que no te engañes!)

Watching or waiting

I think this must be the first time I post this list before any movies of the month come out!

Anyhow if I thought there were lots of movies to watch in March and surprisingly February, that was nothing! Nothing I tell you, compared to how many releases there are this April!

So… once again since money is tighter now than ever, I had to make some difficult choices and therefore here´s my watching or waiting list for the April movies released in Mexico.


Creo que ¡esta es la primera vez que posteo esta lista antes de que alguna de las películas salga!

En fin, si pense que en Marzo y sorprendentemente Febrero tenian demasiadas películas por ver, eso fue ¡nada! Nada les digo, comparado con cuantas películas se estrenan este mes de Abril.

Asi que… una vez más, como el dinero es más escaso ahora que nunca; tuve que tomar algunas decisiones dificiles y por lo tanto he aquí mi lista de películas lanzadas este  Abril en México que veré y por las que esperaré .

Watch list

Shounen-ai/Yaoi Mangas that Should Definitely be Animes! Pt1.- Asterisk by Morimoto Shuu

Watch list

So, after watching Hitorijime My Hero and writing my thoughts about it, I started to think about the lack of yaoi/shounen-ai animes -especially when compared with the yuri/shoujo ai ones-, as well as how the ones made always seem to go along the same lines.

With the delicate/fragile/kind of airheaded uke, forceful/stoic/kind of a dick seme, one of them always been perfect at housework, the nonconsensual interactions if not right out rape, etc.

Which made me think that maybe just maybe, in order to get this genre more appreciated we need some other type of shounen-ai/yaoi animes?

´Cause there are some good stories out there that not necessarily fall into these tropes and that I think would make awesome animes! And so…, here I am, with my first post on shounen-ai/yaoi mangas that I think should definitely get an anime!

Ok, technically speaking some of this movies have already premiered, but since I still haven´t watched any of them, I figured I was still in time.

Anyhow this month, there are also so many movies I want to watch! But unfortunately… money, still an issue. So, once again here´s my list of the movies I´d definitely watch asap at the cinema and those which… we´ll see.

March Books to Welcome Spring!

Calling my name

So… once again I´m a little late with my TBR list for March, as well as my February book reviews -and I was doing so well!-, but in my defense, well… I got nothing, I mean sure, I´ve been a little busy but in reality, I´ve just been catching up on some series and animes.

Anyhow, back to the list, since in March we basically celebrate the International Woman´s Day, Water Day and Poetry Day?; and I usually like to have a theme, it shouldn´t be a surprise that I tried to find books related in some way to this celebrations.

Therefore…, with nothing else to say, here we go:

What the Quiznak?.- Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 5 Review

Tvies

voltron-legendary-defender-1-e14549694407951Awesome action, warfare, family, politics, feels! and freaking cliffhangers!
Those are the words that I´d use to describe Voltron: Legendary Defender -VLD- Season 5, which just premiered this Friday.

As you might remember, not too long ago I finally decided to give VLD a go, and I absolutely loved it!, so I was more than thrilled when I saw that Season 5 would premiere on March 2nd.

Now reasons for loving Voltron I´ve got plenty, just as I mentioned in my previous post, but… Did season 5 live up to the hype? Well…, the short answer is yes! It totally did! And here is why:

Why Voltron Legendary Defender is more than a Kids Show

Why not

voltron-legendary-defender-1-e14549694407951You know what´s the best thing about getting into a series late on? Particularly a Netflix one?
Not having to wait months for a new season!

So…, yeah basically a month ago, I finally decided to make use of my Netflix subscription and watch some of the Netflix show that I have been meaning to watch but for some reason, I haven´t, and… among them there was Voltron!

So… yeah, at the beginning I was a little unsure ´cause while I have been a huge fan of “kids series” like Phineas & Ferb, Star vs the Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls, Miraculous Lady Bug, etc., there have been some others that… have made me wonder what the heck are kids watching and learning these days -and man does that make me feel old-.

But in the end… watching the promo and learning that some of the creative team behind The Legend of Korra were also behind these series… well I had to give a chance.

And I´m actually glad I did! I won´t say that Voltron Legendary DefendersVLD– is the best-animated series out there, ´cause there are plenty of awesome series and it does start kind of slow, but what I will say without doubt is that the series does have a lot of attention to detail, it´s really well written, has awesome animation, heart and doesn´t dumb things down.

Movies to Fill September with Enegry (Películas para Llenar Septiembre de Energía)

Watching or waiting

So… September is here! And it´s usually the month in which there are duller movies, or at least it is where I live -seriously! last September I had basically nothing to watch!- so imagine my surprise when I checked this month´s releases and I found out that this September is anything but dull!

Asi que… ¡Septiembre ya esta aquí! Y usualmente es un mes en el que hay película un tanto aburridas o por lo menos así es dónde vivo -¡en serio! el Septiembre pasado ¡básicamente no tenía nada que ver!-, por lo tanto imaginen mi sorpresa cuando checke la cartelera de este mes y descubrí que ¡este Septiembre es todo menos aburrido!

Anyhow, this time around it´s also pretty evenly split with 4 movies I really want to watch and 4 others that I´m still on the fence about, so… without further ado, here we go:

En fin, esta vez la cartelera para mi esta muy bien dividida con 4 películas que realmente quiero ver y otras 4 que aún estoy considerando, así que… sin más que decir, aquí vamos:

Note: Remember that I live in Mexico, so as always this list only has the Mexican release date, you have been warned

Nota: Recuerden que vivo en México, por lo tanto como siempre esta lista solo incluye la fecha de lanzamiento en México, así que ya fueron advertidos.

September Books to fight of the Routine!

Calling my name

280924-books-vintage-old-748x468I know, I know. I totally missed my August and July lists and it´s been a really long time since I last wrote in this blog, but… since things in my life are finally calming down a little bit, I´m finally back!

Anyhow, this time around I intended for my list to be shorter, ´cause I finally got Always and Forever Lara Jean by the author Jenny Han and so… I decided that a re-reading of the 2 previous books in the To All The Boys I loved Before series was in order! Especially with the movie coming! -More on that in a later post I think-

But in the end… I got so invested in trying to fight off my grown up routine that, as always I ended with a longer list than intended, any way to fight of the routine as I mentioned, this month is all about Independence, Magic, Fantasy, and Survival!

So… in no particular order, here it goes:

Movies to Say bye To the Summer (Películas para Despedir el Verano)

Watching or waiting

Time really flies when you’re having fun, or when you´re so busy that you can´t do any of the things you like. But.. anyhow be it whatever the case it is, there´s an irrefutable truth, summer is over.

El tiempo vuela cuando te diviertes, o cuándo estás tan ocupado que no tienes tiempo de hacer nada de lo que te gusta. Pero en fin… cualquiera que sea el caso, hay una verdad irrefutable y esa es que el verano se ha terminado.

For some of us, this means nothing, since we don´t have vacations anyway, but for some others, the end of summer means going back to school or work. So… in order to hopefully make this transition easier on myself -after all, kids going back to class means more traffic for me and waking up earlier-, here´s my list of the movies that I definitely don´t want to miss this August and some that… I´m still thinking about.

Para algunos de nosotros esto no significa nada, ya que de cualquier modo no tuvimos vacaciones, pero para otros el final del verano significa volver a la escuela o trabajo. Así que… con el fin de tratar de hacer esta transición más fácil para mi misma -ya que el que los niños regresen a la escuela significa más tránsito para mí y tener que levantarme más temprano-, he aquí mi lista de las películas que definitivamente no me quiero perder este Agosto y aquellas que… aún estoy contemplando.   

Note: As always, since I live in Mexico, this list only has the Mexican release date, so you have been warned

Nota: Como siempre porque vivo en México, esta lista soló tiene la fecha de lanzamiento en México así que… han sido advertidos.

Now

Shadowhunters Season 2 Episode 11 “Mea Maxima Culpa”.- And so… It Begins!

Now

shadowhunters-season-2-trailer-premieres-on-january-2-at-8pm-7cShadowhunters is finally back! Yeah, I´m actually excited about this show coming back and as you might know, I wasn´t a fan when it began, but! The mid-season finale really got to me and managed to raise my expectations, and so… here I am.

Anyhow the Season 2B premiere had the monumental task of connecting season´s A overall arch to this one´s, all the while maintaining the urgency feeling and not lowering the quality Shadowhunters has managed to rise -in fact, I would have to say that the big task for this half of the season is to raise it even more!-

So… how did the summer premiere do? Well, I´m here, no? -late, but here- So that should give you a hint, therefore here we go:
