This weekend we’ve seen the new trailer for Thor: Ragnarok. It couldn’t be deeper into the new 80s style that getting more popular among media. If you loved Stranger Things and enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: Ragnarok promises a great ride. Not only the movie is matching styles with the Guardians, but it’s also getting in the revival of the 80s that we can see in many other shows and movies.
The color palette is great. So much so, that one of my plans is to get a pair of posters to make my wall perfect. Yes: Guardians and Thor are going to be rocking my wall. Why? Because the color palette is similar! (And also because I’m sure I’ll love the new movie as well.)
I finally saw Spider-Man Homecoming on Monday after a long day, and it was a blast! Despite some issues, this movie is brilliant. For starters, Peter Parker is a kid who is growing up. He doesn’t know much and grows as the film progresses. This is the Spidey I imagined from the comics. Sorry for the previous movies, but this one nailed it.
We begin with the original song of the first series on TV about Spider-Man. That show was crappy at best, but technology at that time didn’t allow for a better web slinger. And then, we met Peter, a kid who is super excited to meet his heroes.

On Sunday I saw Despicable Me 3, and I had loads of fun! Yup, the Minions are back! This movie is perfect for the whole family, but more so for Minions fans. It’s funny, smart, and it has fluffy unicorns. This time the villain is obsessed with the 80s music. Gru messes up again. But, this time he’s able to meet his twin brother Dru, who happens to have more hair than he does. Well, that’s not a difficult thing, really.
Gru is a Superhero now, so the Minions are a little bit lost. Minions are banana-like creatures who love villains. And Gru isn’t a bad guy anymore. But, his brother wants him to go back to being a villain.

I discovered Sense8 perhaps a little bit too late. However, I’m glad I did since it makes you think a lot! It makes you want opening yourself to new possibilities. This show is mindblowing. I had a little bit of a hard time in the beginning to grasp the idea, but then I was too hooked on it. Plus, it has some very sexy scenes.
[SPOILERS: this review has lots of spoilers about the show. I won’t tell you everything, of course, since there’s too much going on. But, there’s enough in here to spoil a great part of the show. Proceed at your own risk.]
Wonder Woman saved DC! I feared the worst while waiting for Wonder Woman. However, this time, DC made it right. Although the movie isn’t perfect, it sets a great origins story for Diana. I saw the movie last Friday, and I couldn’t be happier. And yes: I want to see it again! There were some cool surprises in the film that I cherished.
But before I review Wonder Woman, I want to warn you about the SPOILERS. There are many in my review. Plus, I also expose two things that I didn’t like so much about it (just two tiny things). Be warned: do not read beyond these lines if you don’t want to be spoiled.
I can just say one thing about American Gods: OMG! The show is so intense that you cannot stop staring even for a little blink. The photography of the show is so breathtaking that it left me gasping. I won’t lie to you, some of the Gods are incredibly spooky. Have you ever seen a Goddess eat a man through her vagina? You’re up to see that and gasp feeling as frightened as allured at the same time!
[SPOILERS: I cannot describe the show unless I give away some spoilers. You should also consider this show to be very mature. This is not a show for kids!]
Ten years before Spock and Kirk, we had Star Trek: Discovery! I just saw the trailer on Twitter. I’ve been reading some drama surrounding the cast, but I must say that the trailer looks brilliant. I can’t wait until fall to start the journey along with Star Trek: Discovery.
One of the things that got me euphoric is to see to female leading roles together. I just hope that the series is as brilliant as it promises. So, why are people complaining about it? I say that we must give it a go before we go berserk on it.
I saw Colossal’s trailer in the cinema, and then again on Youtube. I would have missed this movie completely since the marketing around it is quite weak. However, it seems like a huge hit. Anne Hathaway plays a girl who has a connection with a monster that is smashing Seoul. This is a weird cult movie that mixes Godzilla, Kaiju, Kong and Pacific Rim! How can I not go to the cinema and see it?
Nacho Vigalondo has created a multilayered film. It seems like you can read the movie in several different ways. We meet Gloria, a total loser who ends up crashing at a friends apartment. By chance, she discovers that she is connected to a hideous monster who is destroying Seoul. When she dances, the monsters does it too!
Yesterday I saw Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2, and now I want to see it again! Yes, it is that good. Although it is difficult to make better movies after a huge hit, Marvel made it again. If you loved the retro feeling from the first film, you’re going to adore this second installment of our favorite Superheroes. I laughed, but I also cried. Yes, the only thing that I will spoil for you is this one: take a tissue just in case.
[SPOILER ALERT: this review contains massive spoilers. Refrain from reading beyond this point if you want to be surprised when you hit the cinema!]
Have you seen the Defenders trailer yet!? Netflix’ Marvel’s new hit trailer has just hit the web, and it’s amazing. As I suspected, Iron Fist will be the kid in the group. But, how these damaged Superheroes can save the day? Will they kill each other first? Who are the Defenders anyway?
Netflix gave us Daredevil first. It has two seasons and a third one on the way. Charlie Cox is Daredevil, a troubled lawyer that kicks ass at night. He is blind, and yet he sees more than others do. However, he’s not perfect, and so he creates a lot of mistakes.
Then we have Jessica Jones. Netflix has given us a season of greatness. She is damaged and drinks too much. But she’s brilliant and very dangerous. She kicks ass and has no problem with being ruthless.
