Nancy Drew, Oscars Noms & Funko Fail

sophie lillis as nancy drew

Did I completely miss we’re getting a Nancy Drew adaptation this year? I admit I’m possibly more excited about Sophie Lillis (IT) playing Nancy because that just seems like great casting.

I’m not expecting it to be the greatest movie ever but it looks funny, cute and seems to have an emphasis on the friendships.

It opens on March 15th and I have to admit I can’t help but wish it was going to be on Netflix or opening in February because I just think it’s likely to get crushed with some pretty big movies in March and not much of anything for the next couple of weeks.

Oscar Nominations

They happened as well this week and I have to say if I thought they’d snub anyone it would have been Gaga so good on her!

But they’re already playing up the fact that Glenn Close is now the actress with the most nominations to never have won so my money would be on her. Even though I think it should be Olivia Colman from The Favourite.

I’ve only seen four of the eight best pictures and I liked them all but even there none of them are like oh yeah, that’s definitely best movie of the year for me.

Lastly I saw Funko was releasing newΒ Game of Thrones popsΒ and got my hopes up for a Catelyn but really should have known better.

Me: Ugh! How many versions of the same character do people need?

BF: How many versions of Harley Quinn do you have?

Me: Not the point!

And for the record only 5 πŸ™‚

So yeah Nancy Drew!Β Eh, sure whatever to the Oscars &Β boo to Funko! (But I hope anyone that’s excited about them truly enjoys them.)

    1. Right? I really want to check out those comics you mentioned to even though I don’t know if they’re related to the film πŸ™‚ I’m apparently having a Nancy Drew moment!

  1. Ah, i kept staring at that picture, and thought “Who dis??? I know her from somewhere”. Took me like 10 minutes for the penny to drop that she was in Sharp Objects… πŸ˜€
    Never actually read a Nancy Drew story tho. Maybe i should catch up on that.

  2. The Oscar Nominations were…interesting (some major snubs there, and some surprising entries). Also, this year’s telecast will be boring, I think, considering their plans for it and that it has no host.
    Also, Olivia Colman for the win. I think she has a fair chance, they might give it to her, honestly!

    1. She definitely has a chance but they do love those here’s for the wonderful career nominations! The Favourite has a lot in the game though so maybe that will carry Colman to the win. Or they split and Lady Gaga pulls it out πŸ™‚

  3. Great article! I am so behind on current movies. I have heard good things about The Favourite though. I can’t wait to see Olivia Coleman on The Crown!

      1. I totally agree with all of that! In a TV Guide not too long ago there were pictures of the current cast as their characters and they all look amazing! I seriously am so excited for the new season. I know it’s sometime in 2019, but have no idea when. Probably in the fall, if I had to guess, but who knows at this point, LoL.

      2. Fall? That’s so long! πŸ™
        I have zero patience. If I don’t get this one or Good Omens soon I’m going to start yelling at my television!
