Fast Cars & Jon Bernthal

Ford v Ferrari

Ford v. Ferrari

Directed By: James Mangold

So the last time I went to a movie for fast cars and Jon Bernthal was Baby Driver and it actually made me ill (motion sickness) and gave me a migraine that no amount of drive-by Bernthal appearances could cover.

It was with some trepidation that I went to see Ford v Ferrari.

There’s Always a Catch

Nothing to See Here

Nothing to See Here

By: Kevin Wilson

Imagine being down on your luck when an old-friend offers you a sweet deal. Lots of money put in your bank account, clothes and goods all on the very nice house you’re going to get to live in rent free and all you have to do is take care of two traumatized children.

So what’s the catch?

Dream Holiday Films & Rambles

North Pole in Noelle

I was thinking about a list of things that would make a perfect holiday film for me. It was a childhood dream to be an elf in the North Pole- so there’s that… But then my mind went – Jason Momoa or Tom Hardy can be Santa and then I started thinking…

Hey why shouldn’t Venom 2 be Christmas movie?

And it pretty much went downhill from there 🙂

Noelle & Santa Bill

North Pole in Noelle

Noelle

Directed by: Marc Lawrence

I like the whole cast of Noelle and if I’m going to watch a Christmas movie it better be somewhat at the North Pole.

So no I’m not going to admit that I may have signed up for an entire streaming service just to see Bill Hader play a Santa in training. Nope. Not admitting that.

Return to Camelot

The Guinevere Deception

The Guinevere Deception

By: Kiersten White

Back in the day (oh so long ago!) you couldn’t have sold me on a retelling faster if you said it was about Camelot. So when I saw this one by Kiersten White author of the And I Darken books spotlighting Guinevere it was an immediate add to the TBR.

Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

Once Was Enough Reads

anger

I’ve been having some good luck recently with reading and rereading classics I thought school had killed for me. It’s definitely a streak I hope continues but my friend and I were talking about the not a chance never again books which is just like what it sounds because sometimes once is enough.

I Hope it Hurts: Doctor Sleep

Danny Torrance in Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep

Directed By: Mike Flanagan

Having not read the book I went into this movie expecting it to lean heavily on Danny Torrance and his return to the Overlook Hotel- the haunted hell hotel where the events of The Shining took place.

I was pleasantly surprised that the highlight of this movie was the war between Rose the Hat and young justice seeking Abra.
