See You Next Year

It’s the end of the year, and according to blogger tradition, I am supposed to list the top ten greatest Latino moments or the top five worst Hispanic travesties or the top sixteen weirdo stories involving Latinos.

But honestly, who has the time to accumulate all that data?

So instead I’m posting the trailer for Mama, a new movie from Guillermo del Toro, the creator of the amazing Pan’s Labyrinth. The trailer is bilingual (sort of), and as I’ve stated many times, if there is one thing that Hispanics love (other than Jan Brewer, of course), it’s horror movies.

The film opens in January and looks like an appropriately creepy way to start the new year.


We’re Still Here

OK, so my Mayan ancestors pulled a fast one.

But for if you’re disappointed that the world didn’t end today, keep this in mind: In just five billion years, the sun will deplete its energy, and the Earth will become a barren husk devoid of all life.

So you’ve got that to look forward to.

In the meantime, let me just say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and all that good stuff.

You Shall Not Pass!

Actually, two people shall pass. Ana in Miami and Janee in Los Angeles won the contest for tickets to see The Hobbit.

I hope Ana and Janee enjoy the flick. I plan to catch the movie myself soon, probably sometime between second and third breakfasts.



I recently announced that I would not be updating this site as often, due to the impending arrival of a certain infant Latina.

But don’t worry. I’m still doing the movie contests.

In fact, the last giveaway for 2012 is a big one. I’m offering you the chance to win passes to Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit, which will be screened in the following cities:

Chicago, IL

Dallas, TX

El Paso, TX

Houston, TX

Los Angeles, CA

Miami, FL


Yes, The Hobbit is Jackson’s return to Middle Earth, with dragons and sorcerers and goblins and… well, come on, you don’t need me to tell you how fantastically awesome The Lord of the Rings was.

All you have to do is comment on one of my posts (including this one) about anything you please. Just make sure to tell me what city you plan to see the movie in, so I can allocate the passes.

If you win, I’ll email you the tickets. By the way, I won’t make your contact info public, so don’t worry about that.

I’ll announce the contest winners in the next week or so.

In the meantime, I’ll be here, sharpening my orc-killing blade.
