Resultado de imagen de stranger thingsStranger Things is an American science fiction series, created by Netflix and written and directed by the brothers Matt and Ross Duffer with Shawn Levi as executive producer.

If you didn’t know yet, Netflix is a U.S. commercial entertainment company that provides through flat monthly fee streaming, multimedia ( mainly films and TV series) under request by internet.
 The bad side of this is that you have to pay to see the series. But you can see it like me in this webpage:

This are the main characters of the series:Winona RyderDavid HarbourFinn WolfhardMillie Bobby BrownGaten MatarazzoCaleb McLaughlinNatalia DyerCharlie HeatonCara BuonoNoah SchnappJoe KeerySadie SinkDacre MontgomeryMatthew Modine.

The story start when a 12 year old child boy, called Will Byers disappears mysteriously, after spending the day playing with their friends to Dungeons & Dragons on 6 November 1983, in the city of Hawkins, Indiana. His mother, Joyce, searches for him while Police Chief Jim Hopper launches his own investigation. Will's friends Dustin, Mike, and Lucas discover a psychokinetic girl who claims to know Will's location. As they uncover the truth, a sinister government agency tries to cover it up, while a more insidious force lurks below the surface.

It is a very interesant series, it hooks you immediately. It has very good criticism by the specialized press, who praise the interpretation, characterization, rhythm, atmosphere and the clear tribute to the Hollywood of the years 80.

These are the four books:

1. After
2. After we collided
3. After we fell
4. After ever happy
5. Before

Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to. Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin’s prejudice about nice girls like her?

These books are very easy to read even if they are not short. Have around 600 sheets but their language makes it read very easily. It seems to me a book suitable for teens because the author wrote these books reflect their experiences of her life in those years. So teenergers may feel identified with the nobles.

A Monster Calls is a fantasy drama film directed by J. A. Bayona and written by Patrick Ness, based on his own eponymous novel. It stars Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Lewis MacDougall and Liam Neeson.

Connor is a young man of 12 years that, after the separation of their parents, becomes the man of the house and the responsible for carrying the reins of home. With his young cancer-stricken mother, the small will try to overcome all their fears and phobias with the help of a monster. Fantasy, fairy tales and stories imaginary of the small will be the faces not only with the reality, but with its cold and calculator grandmother...

With this film Bayona closes the trilogy on the mother-child relations:
3. A monster calls

This has been a film that I liked. Basically because it takes you to feelings, situations that your same have lived, so it is easy to abstract the movie. This is combined with a touch of fiction (the monster) and amazing special effects it uses. But on the contrary if you are one of those people who want to evade their bad situation, I don't recommend yo this movie.
