[Sticky] Movie Recs
If you don't feel like you have a lot to say about the movie or you don't want to create a topic for it, here's a place to give your recommendation for movies en español.
If you're looking for a conversation with others who have watched it, a topic would be a better choice.
Don't forget to include the name(s) and where/how you saw it so people know where to look.
I don't know if this is a rec exactly, but I'm half an hour into Veronica (via Netflix) and I'm pretty sure I'm not sleeping tonight. I think I have Jarifa to thank for this one? 🙂 I figured if we were going to watch a horror movie we might as well try one that's actually scary and not something that ends up being more comedic.
This is an anti recommendation. (hopefully that's ok, I just wanted to save someone else from wasting the time I just wasted) Both Un Novio Para Mi Mujer, and the remake Busco Novio Para Mi Mujer aren't IMO worth watching. (Then why did I watch them both you ask? Dunno, curiosity? The library had them both and I wanted to see what the differences were) They're almost identical, like shot for shot, word for word identical, except the Argentinian version has some marriage councilor scenes that were left out of the remake. The story is not funny, its not romantic, its not heartwarming or whatever else it was supposed to be to justify two movies, most of it is just meh. I thought the remake was slightly less meh, but maybe I just got used to it, or was paying less attention or something.
I am on the opposite side of the fence on Busco novio para mi mujer. I saw only the Mexican version. It was silly but I enjoyed it. It made me laugh. Having seen it at the movie theater, it was worth the price of admission to see Jesús Ochoa play a ladies’ man.
My Spanish class watched this one together. It's a lot of fun to see in a group, and Jesús Ochoa steals the movie!
