It’s Not Easy Making New Friends

A Simple Favor

Directed by: Paul Feig

Grade: A

Forming friendships as adults can be really difficult sometimes. Hard to connect with people life gets in the way of new relationships and so on and so forth. So that’s why it was nice to see Stephanie and Emily’s friendship form in last years A Simple Favor.

Well, not so much but still. I finally watched this after putting it off for ages and it was just as nuts and fun as everyone told me.

So below what to look for in a new adult friend or not to look for depending on how bored you are/how much you value your life.

Blind Spot Series 2019 Edition

 

blind spot series 2019

 The Blind Spot series is a great excuse to watch some of the movies that I have perpetually put off for well, always. The series was originally started by Ryan at The Matinee and is also run by Sofia at Returning Videotapes

One thing I did learn last year was I can not stick to a “to be watched schedule” any better than a to be read…

But What’s it Mean for Endgame?

spider-man far from home

So the Spider-Man Far From Home trailer was released.

They don’t get timeline specific in the trailer and I mean we all knew certain things were not going to stick- this movie was in production last year when Infinity War was out but still pretty nuts to just release a full-blown trailer anyway. Not that it gives anything away from Endgame though I am thinking this lends credibility to my number one death pick.

All my 2018 Films in One Sentence Each

venom close up

I’ve seen people do flashback sort of posts where they talk about every book they’ve read in a year and try to summarize each in one sentence.

I thought I’d do it for all the 2018 releases I saw in theaters just to see if I could actually manage. Probably not… I tend to be wordy. But here goes… Also since I haven’t seen all the films I’ve wanted yet I don’t feel like I can do a best list but I’m marking the ones I would put on it!

I wanted to see The Favourite, ever since viewing the trailer, mainly for the three female leads and boy they did not disappoint! Unfortunately I didn’t love the movie as much as the performances but its definitely an interesting film.

Most Disappointing Films of 2018

most disappointing reads

I wasn’t sure if I should call this My Worst Films of 2018 because I actually enjoyed some of them in a disaster can’t look away kind of way. Some might even be guilty pleasures. Disappointing Films? To be honest I kind of expected some of them to be bad.

The Bummer Films? The not Great films of 2018?

The top two aren’t just not great films but truly bad so maybe I should just do the list… (Some spoilers below!)

Wrapping Up Holiday Reading & Watching!

the spellman mortuary

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I thought I’d combine my December Blind Spot with my holiday reading and wrap it all up at once. I didn’t finish my Christmas reading list. But I still had some fun with it. And years ago I once promised myself I would never watch A Christmas story mainly because TBS was running it constantly at Christmas but hey, I enjoyed it anyway.

Who’s Been Naughty? Who’s Been Nice?

whose been naughty whose been nice

So I tried to narrow down the book, film and television characters who would make both Santa’s lists this year. I was going to do more than the year but that would have taken me forever! Let’s do Naughty first cause that’s always more fun…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Directed By: Peter Ramsey, Robert Persichetti Jr, Rodney Rothman

Grade: A

The first trailer I saw for Into the Spider-Verse I wasn’t interested in yet another Spider-Man movie but go figure- this one is probably my favorite of all of them. And I go all the way back to the first Tobey.
