January 22, 2020

Andres is back with this weeks Movie Review. The subject of his critique Dolittle. Starring Robert Downey Jr. “Giving that its Robert Downey Jr’s first proyect after leaving his character Tony Stark, my expectations were high. Sadly the film is written and acted for 5 year olds only. Because its a movie for children does not excuse any film to half ass its effort on character development, good writing and an important message. All films, regardless of target or subject matter should strive to be amazing. The best example being Pixar or The Paddington franchise.”

In the final hour today Miguel Mihalitsianos and Luis Felipe Henriquez the organizers of the Barro Fest that takes place in Pedasi talk to us about the reasoning behind the event and how it is promoting this special tradition from the Interior of Panama.
