Dead Over Heels by Theresa Braun

Loved it-hated it

Well… I didn´t see that comming

It´s been a very long time since I last had the opportunity to read a book thank´s to the author, so… I really wish I had something better to say about this book ´cuase as you might know -if you read my list of books to read in June– I was really excited about it! But in the end… it turns it wasn´t my cup of tea.

I mean is not that it is a bad story, just that… in this case, I think that a longer book was really needed in order for the story to develop in a better way (or at least in my opinion).

Anyhow, allow me to explain:

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:

April´s Fool and not Fooling Movies (Peliculas para Bromear y no Bromear en Abril)

Watching or waiting

Surprisingly, there are not that many movies I wish to watch in April, I mean May had plenty but surprisingly enough, even though April is supposed to be closer to the blockbuster movie summer, nope, there are not that many movies that I wish to watch, which in hindsides is something good, ´cause I´m definitely going to need that money come May.

Sorprendentemente, no hay muchas películas que quiera ver en Abril, quiero decir Mayo tuvo varias pero sorprendentemente, aunque se supone que Abril esta más cerca del verano de películas taquilleras, no, no hay muchas películas que quiera ver, lo cuál si lo pienso es bueno, porque definitivamente voy a necesitar ese dinero en Mayo.

Anyhow, last month I manage to watch in the cinema almost all of the movies I wanted -with the exception of Power Rangers because of several reasons that I´ll discuss later on- so… this month, I should able to manage it, right?

En fin…, el mes pasado logre ver casi todas las películas que quería ver en el cine -con excepción de Power Rangers debido a varios motivos que discutiré más adelante- así que… debería poder lograrlo este mes también, ¿verdad?

Anyhow, on to the list:

De cualquier modo, a la lista:

March, march, march to the Cinema (Marzo, marcha, marcha al Cine)

Watching or waiting

It´s been a very long time since I last wrote anything in this section of the blog -and many others-, so I thought it was time to try something different -sort off since I´ve been doing it on my book section- and try to post about all the movies I want to watch or I´m at least curious about per month.

Ha pasado mucho tiempo desde la última vez que escribi en esta sección del blog -y muchas otras-, asi que pense que era tiempo de intentar algo diferente -más o menos, ya que lo he estado haciendo en mi sección de libros- y tratar de postear sobre las películas que quiero ver o siento por lo menos curiosidad cada mes.

The reason why it took me ´til March to make this change on the blog is because movies more often than not -still less than in the past- tend to be released in México several weeks -if not months- after their premier in the United States, but since most of the movies I want to watch are blockbusters or animated movies and those tend to be released more or on the same dates -sometimes before with Marvel, sometimes the same day with Fox, and others with a few weeks difference- I decided to make this post in both English and Spanish.

La razón por la cual me tomo hasta Marzo hacer este cambio en el blog, es porque usualmente -aunque menos que en el pasado- las película en México suelen ser estrenadas semanas -sino es que meses- después de su estrenó en Los Estados Unidos, pero en vista de que la mayoría de las películas que quiero ver son blockbusters o animadas y esas tienden a estrenarse más o menos en las mismas fechas -a veces antes con Marvel, otras el mismo día con Fox, y otras más con unas semanas de diferencia-, he decidido hacer este post tanto en Inglés como en Español.

Anyway, here´s the list of the movies -with their Mexican release date- I´m watching at the cinema and the ones I´m waiting to stream:

Enfin, he quí mi lista de las películas -con sus fechas de estreno en México- que vere en el cine y las que esperaré a ver desde mi hogar:

Why The Good Place Totally Deserves The Season 2 Order

TV

Last fall I made a list of all the shows that I wanted to see in 2016-2017, ´cause back then it was my intention to not only watch all of them but also review some. Needless to say that real life had other plans and now I can barely keep with all the things I want to read, watch and write, but… anyway.

goodplace-keyart-responsiveAnyway between all of these new shows, there was a little NBC comedy wich only had a 13 episode order this season and had Kristen Bell as it´s protagonist.

Now I´m not a big Kristen Bell fan, I mean I know she did Ana´s voice in Frozen -I think-  and that she was the lead on the fan favorite series Veronica Mars -which for some reason I never got to watch-, so… quite frankly the only reason why I decided to watch the series was because the trailer sold it to me.

But I could have never imagined that The Good Place -the show mentioned- would become one of my favorites, my favorite comedy -so far-, and the one show that I couldn´t miss at all!

Reasons to love The Good Place I´ve got plenty, ´cause yes, it´s just that good; but since this is already turning out to be a long post, I decided to just enlist some of the reasons why this is such a forking awesome show.

Girl Meets World Cancelled.- Gone Before it Could Really Meet the World

TV

We suspecedt it was coming but it still hurts, it hurts and it´s a sad, sad day when a good show, a show that you like it´s canceled. Especially when that show had so much more potential!

I mean Girl Meets World and I have had our stumbles, and there were some episodes that really made me question why I watched the series, but overall it was a good series and it saddens me that the series won´t be able to stretch its arms and grow into the great show it could have been.

Perhaps something in the shaking hands, the trembling shrillness of the voice, warned him that the denial was too vehement, that its very insistence was itself a suspect.
