Justice League (2017)

When it comes to DC, disappointment is often around the corner. The brilliant Wonder Woman (which I thought was going to be another disappointment, but wasn't) restored my faith in them and, in spite of what critics have been saying these days, I was pretty excited about Justice League. But how could I be not? I grew up watching that Justice League cartoon and I absolutely loved it. Same goes for this movie. For the first time, I can say I loved, truly loved a Zack Snyder film.

After the events of Doomsday, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) asks for the help of Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) to assemble a team of meta-humans consisting of Barry Allen (Ezra Miller), Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) and Victor Stone (Ray Fisher) to face a new threat, Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) and his army of Parademons who wants to conquer the Earth.

Hop (2011)

Christmas decorations are everywhere (but my house) and what did I do? I watched Hop, an Easter movie. In my defence, that bunny is so cute and so is James Marsden, and that was exactly what I needed. Those two are pretty much the only cute things about the film.

E.B. (Russell Brand) is the teenage son of the Easter Bunny (Hugh Laurie). He doesn't want to be an Easter bunny so he runs away, heading to Hollywood, where he hopes to become a drummer in a band. There he meets Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker who accidentally hits E.B. with his car and takes him in as he recovers. Together they will learn what it takes to grow up.

Thursday Movie Picks: Movies with Strong Female Character(s)

Welcome to another Thursday Movie Picks, the weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week's focus is strong women in movies. I don't think I need to say more so I leave you with my picks.

¿Qué Culpa Tiene el Niño? (2016)

I haven't seen a lot of Mexican films but those few were pretty heavy. Don't get me wrong, I love those movies, but sometimes I need something lighter so I gave this romantic comedy a chance. Mainly because I wanted to see Karla Souza in something that wasn't How to Get Away with Murder.

Maru (Karla Souza) has a one-night stand with some guy she met at a wedding which wouldn't be a problem at all if she didn't get pregnant. With the help of her friends, she manages to find the guy. It's Renato (Ricardo Abarca), an immature, unemployed and much younger guy who wants to be there for the baby. And Maru is forced to make things work.
