3/5 44% Eli (2019) Eli has a couple of tense sequences, and decent jump scares, with an ending I honestly didn't saw coming [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 67% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) The creative force behind the camera seems to believe that people cared more about viscera and humor than the heartfelt story of broken people becoming a family at end of the world [full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

2/5 36% In the Tall Grass (2019) What could've been a great 40 minute episode of a Black Mirror type of series, was turned into a painfully long flick that gets lost in the deep of its own ego [Full Review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 63% Fractured (2019) This is the kind of movie we, non-ironically, would've called a "hidden gem" in the video-club days, after finding it on the "straight-to-video" section [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

4/5 68% Joker (2019) In an era where almost all films look the same, sound the same, and taste same thing, few filmmakers dare to do something like Joker, much less big studios. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

4/5 84% Ad Astra (2019) Gray usa sus magníficos visuales y emocionantes secuencias en el espacio como vehículo para reflexionar y no al revés - QiiBO EDIT

4/5 88% Hustlers (2019) I didn't know what to expect from Hustlers, and I found a story of survival, sisterhood, friendship, moral relativity, crime and punishment, and Jennifer Lopez's best work since Out of Sight. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

4.5/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) With this fairy tale, Tarantino tried to exorcise demons that'd been haunting an industry based on lies, fantasies and dreams, for five decades. It's also his cruelest Prank. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

4/5 89% Ready or Not (2019) I loved Ready or Not. Is the kind of movie I'll watch several times and I'll probably use to determine whom I'll allow to be my friend, from now on. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 73% The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) With summer ending, and classes starting, The Angry Birds Movie 2 is an excellent choice for one last visit to the cinema with the whole family. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 43% The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019) This will not win any awards for best film, but all manufacturers of nose napkins will appreciate the increase in sales. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 41% Point Blank (2019) Director Joe Lynch does a good enough job of keeping the action going without over-extending its welcome and letting Mackie, Grillo and Harden do their thing [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2019
3/5 42% Stuber (2019) It does not skimp on strong jokes or violence to take advantage of its 90 minutes, and thanks to the high chemistry of its protagonists, it overcomes its deficiencies. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2019
3.5/5 90% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) It works because is fun. Spider-Man is a fun hero and Far From Home understands it. [Full Review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

4/5 89% Rocketman (2019) Rocketman is many things: biography, comedy, drama, musical, and theater of the absurd. But above all, it is an honest testimony of the immense power of art in our lives. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 41% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Dougherty at least recognizes the opportunity he has to throw us into a world of beasts fighting each other, destroying everything on their path, and takes full advantage of it [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) The good news is that this is not the worst X-Men movie. The bad news is that that's not saying much, right X-Men Origins? [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) It is an entertaining adventure for the whole family but, whom will definitely enjoy it more than anyone else are those who have been collecting the 'pocket monsters' for some time [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 56% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) It is not a bad movie, rather frustrating, especially for those who understand the original intention. Efron's performance as Bundy is well worth giving it a watch [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 61% Breakthrough (2019) Metz is undoubtedly the main reason Breakthrough works. The actress has an enviable ability to transmit emotions in an organic and raw way, taking the audience emotion through emotion at will [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 63% Unicorn Store (2019) Unicorn Store deserves a look, even if out of curiosity. Larson shows how much she learned from the directors she has worked with, but also has her own brilliance, and she leaves me waiting to see his next project. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

2.5/5 57% The Highwaymen (2019) Is not that The Highwaymen is a bad movie, is that it's just... boring. Others would say "reflexive" but, in reality, it never really starts, and the few moments of tension are not enough to justify the time between them - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 39% The Dirt (2019) If this movie were a person, it grabbed my butt, offered me drugs, puked on my shoes and, after apologizing, tried to get on with my wife. I had a blast watching it! [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) With all its flaws, I loved Alita: Battle Angel. Maybe because I grew up with this character and I'm biased, maybe because I like science fiction, action, or because I loved Salazar's work as Alita. Probably all together [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

2/5 22% Miss Bala (2019) It has some few decent sequences, but the Hollywood obsession with creating franchises and sequels barely allows a definitive ending, promising a continuation that probably will never come [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

83% Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2019) An explosion of action, humor, and amazing fight scenes that capture all the reasons so many people love this property, while expanding its mythology [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 37% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) I can't call it a bad movie but I can't neither praise it as much as I love this magical universe. I'll seat it right in the level of Chamber of Secrets Territory [Full Review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT

3/5 79% Halloween (2018) Entertaining, with humor from time to time but,serious when it has to be, it's an excellent option for those looking for some decent jump scares at the movies - QiiBO EDIT

3.5/5 69% Ocean's 8 (2018) Entertaining from beginning to end, it maintains the spirit of the franchise while establishing it's own seal with a fun cast [Full review in Spanish] - Movie Network EDIT

5/5 94% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) One of the best movies of the year, certainly the summer, and one of the strongest close to a trilogy ever done. [Full review in Spanish] - Movie Network EDIT

36% Snatched (2017) If the purpose of a comedy is to make me laugh, then Snatched won my contest, even if I cringed more than a couple of times. [Full review in Spanish] - Movie Network EDIT

3/5 93% Wonder Woman (2017) I have missed heroism in the big screen like Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. Pure, without cynicism nor sarcasm, full of goodness, wanting to do the right thing. [Full review in Spanish] - Movie Network EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
3/5 30% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Fans missing movies like The Lord of the Rings should give it a try, this isn't better (nor does it come any close) than that wonderful trilogy but, I had a much better time than with any of the Hobbits. [Full review in Spanish] - Movie Network EDIT

66% Alien: Covenant (2017) The film's biggest advantage is being part of a franchise that has reached ridiculously low levels, so by being entertaining and having decent moments, is among the best that has been done. [Full review in Spanish] - Movie Network EDIT

3/5 73% Gifted (2017) Gifted is an ok movie, especially for those who enjoy family drama, and have no problem with letting a tear drop in the movie theater. [Full review in Spanish ] - Movie Network EDIT

52% The Boss Baby (2017) The Boss Baby was never interesting or fun enough to keep my attention, and I just enjoyed sporadic moments of frenzy, or some reference to past work by Baldwin ("Cookies are for closers"). [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2017
43% Ghost in the Shell (2017) It's not a bad movie, is just that it never dares to go beyond what it proposes. Maybe because doesn't know how, perhaps because they thought the audience wasn't smart enough. [Full review in Spanish] - QiiBO EDIT
