Hi everyone! I hope you have all been doing well. I’m sorry that I’ve been gone for a while, I’ve just been super busy and just couldn’t find time to sit down and write a post.

But hey, here I am again because the other day I’ve seen the new Thor movie and I loved it! I just had to write a review because I loved it so much.

First of all let me just say one thing, apart from the Avengers movies, the Thor movies are my favorite Marvel movies. I’m just a super Loki fan, and I’m sure I’m not the only one, Loki is such a great character both in the Marvel universe but also in the Norse mythology. He has always been my favorite, but I was glad that this movie focused on Thor. (By the way, if you are looking for a good book about Norse mythology I suggest the one by Neil Gaiman, here is the link to my review of it).

Also, I think that the director Taika Waititi did an amazing job. I just love him he is just too pure for this world, and I love his sense of humor and his intelligence, man I could stay here and gush about him for hours.

So the main antagonist in this movie is Hela, Thor’s sister, who is played by the amazingly talented and gorgeous Cate Blanchette. (This part contains spoilers, you have been warned).
Basically what happens is that Thor and Loki get stuck on a planet called Sakaar, here they find Hulk who has been stuck there for two years, and they have to get out of there in order to save Asgard from Hela wrath.

There were some visually amazing scenes, especially the ones where Thor unleashed all his powers, I loved those scenes. For those who have seen the movie, I’m talking about the ones with “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin playing in the background.

One of the things I loved about the movie was Jeff Goldblum basically playing himself, that was hilarious. So yeah, I really enjoyed this movie I think that you will not be disappointed by it.

So, apart from this I just wanted to say that I may not write or post as often as I used to, but if something comes up like it has now, for example, I will definitely blog about it. About the books I might review next right now I’m reading a book called “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” which I’m really enjoying so far, it’s basically a book about the lives of some of the most amazing women in history, it’s really inspiring, I’m loving it. After this, I wanted to start either “The Idiot” or “The Brothers Karamazov” by Dostoyevsky.

This is it for now, as always if you want to let me know your opinions just write in the comment section below.

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

gotgv2

Hi everyone! How are you doing? Today I’m going to write about a movie I saw a couple of days ago: “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”.

For some reason I waited a long time before seeing this movie, I kept reading around that the sequel wasn’t as good as the first movie, and since I loved the first Guardians so much I didn’t want to spoil it, I guess. After seeing the sequel the only question I have left is: What the hell was I thinking?

I thought it was amazing, and yes, it’s different from the first one, honestly, I don’t know which of the two I like best.

I love them both because they use a very particular sense of irony that never turns vulgar.

So yes, it was amazing seeing these incredibly fun characters back together again. The soundtrack was amazing, like in the previous movie. All the jokes were incredibly funny, I don’t remember the last time I laugh this hard during a movie.

As for the plot, the movie revolves around Quill this time around. I don’t want to reveal too much if you haven’t seen it yet, but we find out more about his character and his origins, let’s leave it at that. As for the other characters, my absolute favorites are Rocket, Drax and Groot, they are hilarious, I just love them so much, especially Drax.

Okay now let me tell what I have found particularly fascinating: in this age of visual effects, I always love when a character has special powers, or if those powers are represented in an interesting visual way. Now even in the last movie, there is a scene at the end where we see Yondu’s abilities and I loved that scene. In this movie there is even a bigger scene where we see him using his arrow and I freaking loved it, I just loved how they visually represented his powers.

The only character I like a little less than the others is Gamora, I find her incredibly annoying, and I don’t mean the actress because I like her, I guess I just can’t stand the character.

Well, anyway I really enjoyed it, I highly suggest you watch it, after seeing it I don’t know why I waited this long.

Now I can’t wait to see all of them back again for the next Avengers Movie. I have to say that I believe all those Marvel Movies that are coming out are always entertaining, some are better than others but they are always interesting. One movie that I have been looking forward to seeing is Thor Ragnarok. I can’t wait to see it.

Okay, so this is it for my review, have you guys seen this movie? What did you think about it? As always let me know in the comments your opinions.
