Describing a gory movie

I saw the movie Deadpool last night and I want to describe it to a friend as violent but not gory.

I know the literal meaning of gore is blood, and that's how my spanish dictionary translates it -...

I just realised it should say "also, in some countries, it is made from a clay pot..." Rather than "In some countries it is also made from a clay pot..." Least i think it should.

Just to sweat them a little, would you say that en really means "in the vicinity of" and you'd clarify with inside, outside, in front of, if that was relevant to the story?

I mean, that's...

Thanks for the feedback Rusty :)

I had assumed that written in English piņata wouldn't have the tilde. It's easy enough to add it when I'm typing on an iPad but on a normal keyboard, it's hard to...

They could also just be hiding their support for Trump. Or maybe they are reticent about it or avoiding admitting to it or not owning up to it.

Being unforthcoming implies (to me anyway) that when...

In the example you give of the cartoon network, I'd use the expression "guilty pleasure" to describe something that people are ashamed of but enjoy and don't think are actually wrong. But that is...

Vocabulary/etymology differences between English and Spanish

As I'm learning Spanish, I'm loving how many of the words have the same word roots as English words. Often though it's a fancy English word because the commonly used English word has come from a...
