Can You Always Trust Your Mother?

Mother in I Am Mother

I Am Mother

Directed By: Grant Sputore

So I decided to give the Great British Bake-Off a rest (actually I was begged to give it a rest) and decided to check out some of the movies on Netflix right now.

Naturally I started with the one about the robot mother.

The Devil & Roan Eddington

Teeth in the Mist

Teeth in the Mist

By: Dawn Kurtagich

I read ‘inspired by the legend of Faust’ and was like sign me up!

I enjoyed both Kurtagich’s previous books The Dead House & And the Trees Crept In so when I saw this one and read witches and deals with the devils along with a suitably creepy cover I jumped at buying and for once it was an immediate read for me.

Return of the Toys: Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4

Directed By: Josh Cooley

These stupid toys! Why? Why are they better at pulling the emotion than almost any other movie I’ve seen this year?

I spent most of this movie contemplating the likely fate of a spork, being annoyed with a toy and wishing he would grow up and thinking that another toy could do a heck of a lot better in the guy department.

Yeah these characters are more human than the human characters in some recent movies and shows.

Steve, Monsters and 80’s Flashbacks: Stranger Things Final Trailer

Eleven faces Stranger Things 3

Stranger Things dropped its final trailer for season 3 and I am ready for the show and speculation!

Also I was only a kid in the 80’s but the fashion, the fashion! Mainly not fashions finest decade but I miss jelly sandals. I mean I have no doubt I could find them again but it wouldn’t be as fun. Anyway this seasons probably going to give me some strong flashbacks.

A Love Letter to Friendship

Good Omens

It’s a love letter to friendship and perhaps a little bit to those who do a half-assed version of their jobs until they realize hey this might be the end of the world.

Crowley (David Tennant) is a demon (who didn’t mean to fall) happy to laze around Earth and send memos while not really doing that much. When he’s put in charge of delivering the newborn anti-Christ to his Earth parents things change.

This Hot Dog is a Brat

Hot Dog Girl

By: Jennifer Dugan

A couple of weeks ago when I did my summer reading recommendations I noted I was reading and enjoying Hot Dog Girl- which boy I should have just kept my mouth shut.

I should probably know better than to judge solely on tag lines and covers especially concerning hot dogs one of my true food enemies but boy it all came down to how much Eloise sucked and since she was the main character that turned into a problem.

The Worth of a Soul

Soul of the Sword

By: Julie Kagawa

Publishes on: June 18th

Just want to give fair warning Soul of the Sword is the sequel to Shadow of the Fox which was one of my favorite reads last year. So there will be spoilers for that book but not this one 🙂

Also I received a copy of Soul of the Sword from Netgalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

Films & Shows that Help Tame My Anxiety

Chris Hemsworth

So last night I was supposed to go see MIB: International had the tickets and everything. But right before we were scheduled to leave the house there was some sort of power surge, outage, blip, I don’t know we lost power for a couple of minutes and then it took a long time to come back on and the AC didn’t seem to be working correctly.

And anything like that can set off my anxiety period but then thinking about leaving the animals was just like boom! Not going to happen. Won’t be able to enjoy the movie! Would be absolutely sure something had gone wrong and the house was burning down. And we didn’t want to shut the AC down as it was 107 here yesterday so finally my roommate put me out of my misery.
