Comic con @ Home 2020 Schedule

San Diego Comic Con is the biggest and most anticipated comic event every year, but as you can imagine, this year due to the pandemic everything has been canceled. However, instead, we have Comic Con @ Home, a totally virtual event hosted by not other than YouTube. Which means that we can access all the panels from the comfort of our home. The bad news? Well, Marvel Studios and Warner Bros will not be part of this virtual event. For DC fans we will have DC Fandome on August 22, an event similar to Comic Con @ Home. Marvel fans need to wait a little longer because as of yet there is no virtual event date for this year.

Simon Vs The Homosapiens Agenda - Review

Today it’s become very common to meet people online. But do you imagine falling in love with someone just because of their personality, without actually meeting them? In addition to that lets suppose someone finds out your biggest secret and blackmails you with revealing it to the world if you don’t do what you’re told. This and much more is what Simon Spier, a junior high school kid who lives in Atlanta, Georgia, faces. Oh, and one last thing before we start, Simon is gay.

To the ones who dream - La la land Review

To the ones who dream - La la land Review

From the moment I started watching the teaser trailer I knew I wanted to watch this movie, and boy did the final result not disappoint me! From sets to music and acting, everything is perfect in the world of La land.

 

Our story begins in a demoniac traffic in the city of the angels, is so heavy that the cars have minutes without moving. Then, someone gets out of their car and starts singing. It's a moving song, called "Another day of sun", and suddenly, everyone gets out of their vehicles and starts singing and dancing. It is a lively start, you don’t get to see the protagonists yet, not even the secondary characters, because the truth is there aren’t any (well except one by John Legend).

What to expect from the Power Rangers movie

What to expect from the Power Rangers movie

If you're reading this, it means (most likely) 24 years ago you were one of those kids of the 90's who were obsessed with those five teenagers with attitud who were recruited by Zordon and Alpha 5 to become colorful superheroes and fight monsters in huge dinosaurs robots

 

Now with the new reboot coming out in March you many think it's the great return of the Power Rangers, but the truth is they never left. Power Rangers is a franchise that has been on television for 24 years, adapting its superheroes with all the themes you can imagine, from animals to space travel. Although this method of success can’t be credited to themselves, but to their original Japanese version. That's right, although you probably didn’t know, Power Rangers has never been an original American series but an adaptation; The vast majority of suits, monsters and zords (robots) comes from a series in Japan called Super Sentai, which has more than 40 seasons.

Westworld Review

Have you ever wanted to go to a theme park where everything seems completely real? Where you  can do whatever you want without rules or limits? Although the idea is out of our reach (for now) at least we can see what it would be like in Westworld.

Based on the 1973 film of the same name, Westworld is a television series created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, aired on HBO.

The Beasts in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

The moment has come. The magical world of Harry Potter returns to the big screen with the adaptation of the book of Newt Scamander, Fantastic Beasts and where to find them. Wait a minute, how can you adapt a Hogwarts textbook into a movie?

First things first, because not everyone has read the Harry Potter books, so I'll explain where the origin of this new movie comes from.

Doctor Strange - Review

Doctor Strange - Review

First of all, who is Stephen Strange?

 

He might not be as popular as Spiderman or Captain America, but he is someone very important in comics, and after this movie I don’t doubt he becomes a fan favorite.

 

Stephen Strange, best known as Doctor Strange is a superhero from Marvel Comics, created by Stan Lee (Yes, the old man that makes cameos in all of the Marvel films) and artist and character conceptualist Steve Ditko. He appeared for the first time in the number 110 of Strange Tales (July of 1963).

American Horror Story Hotel – Review

American Horror Story Hotel – Review

Halloween is just around the corner, and everyone is intoned with books and horror films, so I decided to review somethig of this genre. Honestly, I'm not a fan of horror movies, but I found this show really addictive.

American Horror Story is a TV series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk; It began in 2011 with a whole new horror story, focusing their characters around a haunted house, where the souls of all people who die in it get trapped. However, when the second season started in October, 2012 with the theme of a Catholic madhouse, and the cast taking roles of completely different characters, their popularity grew even more.

A journey to Wonderland - A review about Alice’s stories

A journey to Wonderland - A review about Alice’s stories

It's tea time!, and all that comes to my mind is a rabbit wearing a waistcoat and pocket watch, talking to itself as it runs past. If you know who I'm talking about, you also know that Alice’s visits to Wonderland are always an adventure. But how did all of this start? Not many know that Alice's character was based on a real person. And since I've written characters based on people in my own book, I thought it would be fun to write this review.

Stranger Things - Review

Stranger Things - Review

This is my first entry about a television show , and I’d like to start by saying that is one of the best I've seen in recent years. Perhaps because of the homages and references to the work of Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, Rob Reiner and George Lucas, which can be seen throughout the first season.

This is a Netflix original series, premiered on July 15, this year. As all of their TV Shows, they released the complete first season on the same day so anyone has to wait a whole week for the next episode.

7 differences between The Jungle Book Films (1967 vs. 2016)

7 differences between The Jungle Book Films (1967 vs. 2016)

The new version of the famous Disney movie is an adventure from start to finish , and the best of all, it is a faithful adaptation of the original 1967 film. Come on, you didn’t notice? Mowgli even wears the same piece of orange cloth. In addition, this new film also serves to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of its creator, the writer Rudyard Kipling.

However, there is more than one detail that must be taken into account for the realization of a live- action film with a more serious tone. So here you have seven differences that stand out in this new version compared to the 1967 one.

Chronology of the Terminator saga

Chronology of the Terminator saga

To continue the theme of time travel I started with The End of Eternity, what better than to pay tribute to one of the most recognized film sagas on this subject? In addition, today, August 29 is the anniversary of a crucial date in this story. Of course, I'm talking about Terminator.

In this story, August 29, 1997 was the judgement day, or the end of the world as we know it. However, many of you will say: "Hey, but the end of the world didn’t happen, because they stopped it in the second film". And so it happened, but they have made so many other films already, it’s probably not that clear whether the famous judgement day came to happen or not.

First of all, we must break down the different types of time travel there are so we can understand what happens in Terminator.

The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov (1955) – Review

The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov (1955) – Review

Isaac Asimov was a writer of Russian origin, famous for his writing in the science fiction genre. Among his best known works are The Foundation saga, also known as the Trilogy or cycle of Trantor, and the robots series which set out The Bicentennial Man and I, Robot. This two were adapted cinematically.

But in the case of The End of Eternity, Asimov does not speak about robots, however, addresses another equally controversial issue of the science fiction: Time travel.

11 books that inspired me to be a writer

11 books that inspired me to be a writer

Because, what could be better than a list of ten books? One of eleven, of course.

 

Some time ago I've been looking for a space to publish my thoughts, opinions, recommendations and own writings . Simply a place where I felt at home, but virtually. And what better to create your own web site if you have the knowledge to do so? Although many things will change as the blog grows, I am pleased to welcome you to this first version. This is all new to me, so I'll be attentive to your recommendations if you have any.


For my first post, I was thinking a long time about what I could write about, as there are many issues that I would like to address, but since this is my first entry, I would like to share something about myself that I may have not talked to many people and this is the literature that inspired me to want to be a writer. So here we go!

 

1. Who Moved My Cheese? By Spencer Johnson (1998)

This was the first book that perhaps I read in my entire life. I remember I was a kid and my mom was reading it. "You should read it, is very cute", she said. By that time I wasn’t at all into reading, and the cover seemed to me a little silly, but I decided to give it a try and immediately it caught me. Who moved my cheese? is a motivational book that describes the changes we all face in life and how to learn to deal with them. Although when I finished the book I still had no idea I would be a writer, I had a very different perspective about life.
