With all the talks that have been happening around this series, I had to try it. So I did, a while ago, and I couldn't even end the pilot: it didn't say a thing to me, I just thought it was another "cool Hollywood star guy that's the worst" thing. But then we moved into the new house and now for the first time I have Netflix on my TV so it's supereasy to watch anything in a couple of seconds, and it was there so I tried again. And this time I watched the full series in like a week.

It is a perfect show for these small breaks you have while you have breakfast or in between studying, because it's a 20 minutes show. And the fact that they're cartoons makes it more relaxing, although it is a quite depressing series. But I enjoyed it! Particularly, this thing they do where -since the characters are different animals- every animal acts like a person most of the time but then has certain triggers that make them do things like the animal would do them. I guess you don't understand me if you haven't watched it, but it's funny.

Cut for light spoilersCollapse )

This summer I read the first 3 books (out of 9 so far) in a very popular and quite enjoyable crime novel series. Its author is named Lorenzo Silva and he started writing these stories in 1995 about a couple of Spanish police officers who solve difficult or cold cases.

I am not a fan of crime fiction, but these books are more about the characters and the human mind than about the kilings. They are easy to read and fun (except for the twisted killings details, which I do not appreciate) and you like the main characters soon enough.

I started reading them because my girlfriend had been telling me for over a year how good they were AND last week a movie was released about the third book and it looked good so I wanted to read them first. (And that's the best thing I've done in a while because, oh my, what a torture of a film!)

So... That's my september rec: the Bevilacqua and Chamorro series of books by Lorenzo Silva. :)

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to make an old dream come true: experience an Aerosmith concert! I had been waiting for it for a long time (even dreaming about travelling to the states if it had to come to that) and last year -sadly- their last european tour was announced. (They're breaking up. I guess it's because they're too old to keep doing this kind of shit.)

So, of course, I was there the first day to buy tickets and I spent a considerable amount to be on the first rows but it was SO worth it! My girlfriend is a bit afraid of crowds, so I wasn't able to be as close as I would have liked to (and this made me hate the human race for being so obsessed with smartphones because on the best parts everyone held their phones up to record -WTF?!), but still it was memorable.

Old Joey Kramer seemed like he was about to collapse during the first 5 songs or so (he looked like he was playing the drums soooo slowly I couldn't understand how the songs sounded right lol) but then he kind of woke up. Tom Hamilton is so classy we've fallen in love with him. Joe does crazy shit with his guitar (and one thing struck me: Steven said about him "the only one who's better than me" -and that, being Steven Tyler, is *something*). And Steven was born to be a rockstar: at first I thought he was high (because of his face and speech) but then I realised with all those twists and dances he would have fallen down if that was the case; he looks so crazy on stage I thought he was going to throw his microphone (with the stick attached to it) to the fans; I just loved him.

I am crossing my fingers and wishing a DVD comes out with a concert from this tour recorded because I want to watch every second again and everything I couldn't see there (for instance, Brad -I could only take a glimpse at him a couple of times).

Some years ago I bought the official autobiography of the band, but I hadn't really gotten into it until this year. I am still reading it and it's mindblowing. The things these five people did back when they were on the top (and getting there). It makes me appreciate even more some of the things they have done. Although it also makes me a bit sad seeing how some songs were just written to get the new album out of the way (but some other songs have a new meaning now that I know the backstory to them). I'm loving it! I've been listening to Aerosmith since I was 10, but now I'm becoming even more of a fan. I'm just sad I won't have the chance to see them live again. :( (But! I could at least do it once!! =D)

Lie to me is a show that could look like so many others: a team of researchers solving crimes and other mysteries, an obvious OTP and a secondary OTP, tons of stand-alones that only let slip parts of their personal life from time to time (but, oh, how juicy they are!). BUT. It is not just another crime-solving procedimental series.

First of all: LTM is your best happy place! There's this delightful character (Gillian Foster) who is so cute and tender and clever and sexy and feels so much like home that you won't need anything else to feel warm on a winter's night. At her side there's this weird fun character who cares so much for her that even on his strange way he's so nice and lovely when it comes to her (plus, some of you might find him sexy: it's Tim Roth). Besides them, there is also a beautiful and lovely teenage girl who will make you want to have kids if they're anything like her (for real: I wish I could be half the woman she's turning into). And there are great fangirl moments on the show (tender, romantic, exciting) and a lot of nonsense (things that'll make you smile and laugh).








Second: Gillian Foster. You'll know what I mean when you meet her. She's just perfect. So silly and so happy and so empatic (is that a word?). I love her. I absolutely adore her. I have a fanclub card and a ninja t-shirt (because of a fandom silly thing) and I even made an LJ community (which I must admit I abandoned long ago >.<). You may think I'm a bit mad, but that'll only be until you meet her. You need her in your life.





This is Tim Roth.


Third: It's sadly a short series so it won't take you too long. 3 seasons of 13 episodes. FOX is to blame. And, at least for people living on Spain, it's on Netflix!


Ps. That one on my icon is Emily, the teenage girl I was talking about.

I'd been waiting for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 since the first time I walked out of the cinema after watching GotG Vol 1. And I ended up not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. I absolutely loved the first volume: I think it's brilliant, original, funny, musicaly perfect and could barely be better (just maybe make Ronan more of a badass).

But Vol. 2 was so... plain when it came to jokes (they're all very basic, I barely laughed during the whole movie) and part of what happened was either forced or didn't fit well on the movie. I enjoyed little Groot and I liked seeing Kurt Russell and his plot and, of course, Starlord's blue father and his part of the story. But I went in expecting to love it nearly as much as I loved the first one and, well... It didn't came even close. I need to watch it again to have a better opinion, but I think I will enjoy even much more the first movie now.

And then there's Wonder Woman. For weeks I've seen comments in here from people amazed by the movie and I was so looking forward to watch it that I got a bit dissapointed as well. It's a good superhero movie, but it's now the life-changing event I was expecting. Idk. I kind of got the feeling that it was superfeministic by your comments andminor spoilerCollapse )

So that's that. I don't think I'll be expecting much of any movie anytime soon and I guess that's good because that way I'll be positively surprised.

I've finished watching season 3 of The 100 and, loving the show as I am, I need to say how injust it is that the main character and hero of the show is someone who is so boring and so unlikeable as Clarke; while there are other awesome characters that don't get the atention and respect they deserve.

Spoilers for S3Collapse )

I have to say the show surprised me greatly. I'll keep watching: this is worth it.
