We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — Isabel Allende is a Latina icon. So you can imagine how excited we were to hear that HBO picked up a three-part mini-series dramatizing her life.
In we-are-not-a-monolith news, Latina critics are split on Netflix’s ‘Ginny & Georgia’ with reviews ranging from “a mess” to “really powerful.”
There’s been A LOT of conversation about Malcolm & Marie. So what do Afrolatinas think? Well, the response is polarized as critics zero in on the good, the bad, and the ugly of the film.
This Nickelodeon cartoon turned live-action teen-fairy drama has got lots of people’s attention. So what do Latinas think of ‘Fate: The Winx Saga?’
‘Wonder Woman 1984’ is out, so what did Latinas think? Was this feminist icon’s sequel better than the original? Turns out our reviews were mixed as we tried to enjoy the DC Comic flick for what it is while also being disappointed in its worldview.
“Selena: The Series” debuted on Netflix last week and Latinas, well, we have THOUGHTS. Pretty much every single one of us. So while we’re normally agitating for more Latina critics, we know we can’t just sit back and savor this moment – we have to support these mujeres problématicas, defending them against the “why-can’t-Latinos-just-support-each-other” crew (otherwise known as men).
The Saved by the Bell reboot premiered last week and it appears to be… good? Of course, we believe its success can be found in its latindad – it stars TWO Latinas in Haskiri Velazquez and Alycia Pascual-Pena and Maria Lopez is a producer. But what do Latinas think? Turns out, we’re pretty into it.
We’re still talking about The Queen’s Gambit. There was the initial wave of fawning reviews, then the more nuanced takes (yes the ‘magical negro’ is a problem), the reminder that star Anya Taylor-Joy is (white) Latina, and it goes on. So what did Latina critics think? Let’s dive in.
Trick-or-treating may be canceled but Halloween in all its scary, campy glory is not. So let us invite you to check out the latest from Netflix, Vampires vs. the Bronx. Confronted with vampires, gentrification, and maple scones, our heroes are young Afrolatinos, their protective, Catholic moms, and, of course, the local bodega.
Cruising the reviews, you’d think only dudes have opinions on Netflix’s ‘Away’ but women (and Latinas!) like space/STEM/astronauts too. So what do we think?
