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.

Movies to Kickoff the Summer (Películas para dar Inicio al Verano)

Watching or waiting

Summer is here! Well… partially ´cause we´re not on vacations or at least not in Mexico -and I don´t have vacations anyway-, but technically speaking Summer has just begun and with it the summer blockbuster movie season -or at least that´s how it’s supposed to go-

¡El verano ya está aquí! Bueno… prácticamente porque no estamos en vacaciones de verano aún, o por lo menos no en México -y no tengo vacaciones de cualquier modo-, pero técnicamente el verano acaba de comenzar y con el la temporada de éxitos de taquilla veraniegos.

Anyhow, this month at least, there are more than 2 movies that I really want to watch, and some others that… I´m still thinking about.

En fin, este mes por lo menos hay más de 2 películas que realmente quiero ver, y otras que… aún estoy contemplando.

And as always just a friendly reminder that this since I live in Mexico, this is the Mexican release schedule, so… with nothing else to address, on to the list:

Y como siempre, solo les recuerdo amigablemente que como vivo en México, esta es la cartelera Mexicana con sus fechas, en fin…, sin nada más que decir, a la lista:

Summer Loving Books

Calling my name

It´s been a really long time since I last wrote anything on this blog, so long that honestly, I don´t know if there´s still people reading it or are interested in it, but be it there or not I´m finally back!

summer-reading-part-twoAnyhow, reasons for not having written anything I got plenty – work, health, trips, etc.-, but if I´m really honest with myself it really has to do with my lack of organization skills -I´m still working on that!-, but the point is that I´m finally back and ready to quick off the summer with some fun, loving and maybe one and other mystery.

So…. here are my book picks for June!

Books Pouring Down On Me

Calling my name

Once again I´m late with my reading list -this is starting to be the norm now-, but at least I have already finished the first of my  April picks so…. not everything is lost, right?

books-rain-window-favim-com-3591441Anyway last month I was able to read almost all of my March picks -I didn´t read my Spanish book pick-, so let’s hope this month I can do at least as good if not better than March.

So…. for this month the books, I also tried to choose books that had something to do with the things celebrated in April -which were surprisingly plenty- such as kid´s day, book´s day and Gabriel García Márquez -a Colombian journalist, writer, etc.- birthday.

Anyhow, without any further ado, to the list:

Movie thoughts

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.- Expanding the Wizarding World (Expandiendo el Mundo Mágico)

Movie Thoughts

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is back! Except, this time there´s no Harry Potter so… I guess it would be better to say that the Wizarding World of J.K. Rowling is back, and while I have read and seen all of the Harry Potter books -at least the original 7- and movies, I wouldn´t consider myself a fan fan.

¡El Mundo Mágico de Harry Potter está de vuelta! Excepto que no hay Harry Potter, así que… creó que tal vez sería mejor decir que el Mundo Mágico de J.K. Rowling está de vuelta, y aunque leí y vi todos los libros -por lo menos los 7 originales- y películas de Harry Potter, no me consideraría un fan fan.  

41899I mean I like Harry Potter, and for a time there I was kind of obsessed with it -to the point I read lots of fanfics-, but… if I compare myself to other people I know, who actually read the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them book -which is you know, a sort of  encyclopedia-, I´m not that much of a fan.

Quiero decir, me gusta Harry Potter y por un tiempo estuvo un poco obsesionada con él -hasta el punto de leer vrios fanfics-, pero… si me comparó con aquellos que incluso leyeron el libro Criaturas Fantásticas y Dónde Encontrarlas -el cuál ya saben es prácticamente una enciclopedia-, no soy tan fan. 

Anyway, I make this clarification, because if you´re reading my thoughts on this movie, expecting me to sing it praises; chances are you´re going to be disappointed.

En fin, hago eta aclaración porque, sí estas leyendo mis pensamiento sobre esta película esperando que le cante elogios; probablemente seas decepcionado.

Don´t get me wrong! I enjoyed the movie, but… let´s just say that I won´t be running to the movie theater in order to watch it again. And while I didn´t exactly love the movie -like many seem to have done-, I did find it interesting and I can´t wait to see more about it just… maybe not from Newt Scamander´s hands?

¡No me mal entiendan! Me gustó la película, pero… solo digamos que no correré al cine para verla nuevamente. Y aunque no amé precisamente la película -cómo muchos parecen haber hecho-, sí la encontré interesante y no puedo esperar a ver más, solo… ¿tal vez no a través de Newt Scamander?

Movie thoughts

Doctor Strange: Forget Everything you Knew (Olvida Todo lo Que Conocías)

Movie Thoughts

Full disclosure, I´m not a big Doctor Strange fan, I know who he is -mainly because of the cartoons and some other comics-, and while I enjoy and love the character -at least what I have seen of him in other comic books and events-, for some strange reason -you see what I did there- I have never been able to get into his comics.

Confesión completa, no soy una gran fan de Doctor Strange, se quien es -pricipalmente por las caricaturas y otros comics-, y aunque disfruto y amo al personaje -por lo menos lo que he visto de el en otros omics y eventos-. por alguna extraña razón -vieron lo que hice ahí- nunca he sido capaz de interesarme mucho por sus comics.

doctor-strange-magic-178841That being said, from the moment I saw Benedict Cumberbatch on BBC´s Sherlock, I knew he would be perfect for the role, so… when he was announced as Dr. Steven Strange, it was like a dream come true.

Habiendo dicho esto, desde el momento en que ví a Benedict Cumberbatch en la serie Sherlock de la BBC; supe que sería perfecto para el papel, asi que… cuando anunciaron que el sería Dr. Steven Strange, fue como un sueño hecho realidad.

So… needless to say that I had really high expectations for this movie and those expectations made me worry because if Age Of Ultron and Batman V Superman taught me anything, it was that expectations can make a movie seem worse than it really is.

Asi que… no es necesario decir que tenia altas expectativas para esta película, y estas expetativas hicieron que me preocupara, porque si algo aprendi de La Era de Ultrón y Batman V Superman, es que las expectativas pueden hacer que una pelea paresca peor the lo que realmente es.

Therefore, just like with Suicide Squad, I told myself to lower my expectations; and hope at the very least for a movie as good as Ant-man -which I liked a lot, but if we´re honest isn´t Guardians of The Galaxy or Captain America: The Winter Soldier-, so I was pleasantly surprised when Doctor Strange not only met my expectations but also exceeded them!

Por lo tanto, tal y como hice con Escuadrón Suicida, me dije a mi misma que debía bajar mis expectativas y esperar que la película fuera al menos tan buena como Ant-man -la cual me gusto mucho, pero si somos honestos no es Guardianes de la Galaxia y Capitán América: El Soldado del Invierno-, así que fuí agradablemente sorprendida cuando Doctor Strange no solo cumplio con mis expectativas, sino que también ¡las excedio!
