Contemplating Changing Opinions & Blogging Life

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 4.20.58 PM

So at the end of September I will have had this blog for 4 years. I was looking back over old posts to see if my opinions had changed about anything. I reread a couple of books I’ve loved in the past. I rewatched a bunch of movies. Probably the big one this year I’ve tried the whole audio book thing again.

Directed By: Aneesh Chaganty

Grade: A-

David Kim’s daughter Margot disappears one night. And the search leads him down a rabbit hole of social media and discovery after discovery of what Margot was hiding in an effort to find her.

Part of me couldn’t help but think hey, if you stopped videotaping her for Youtube and talking to her by text, maybe you would have known?

Germs, Television Wins & a lot of Books

august recap

I love getting to spend time with my nephew and since he started school I don’t see him as much but man every time I do I wind up sick. It’s as though sometimes when he’s hanging off me I can actually see the germs.

And They Prefer the Diamonds

Gentleman Prefer Blondes

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Grade: B+

Considering that choosing films for the Blind Spot Series is very much like a TBR (TBW?) it’s amazing I stuck with it this long. Truth be told I’m very much a mood watcher like a mood reader and I didn’t want to watch any of the movies on my list.

I wound up watching this Marilyn Monroe/Jane Russell classic and completely enjoyed it.

While I’m not the biggest fan of musicals I was watching Ella Enchanted a few weeks back and it struck me that a good musical number or two can always put a smile on my face 🙂 You just have to know when to use them.

Which naturally got me thinking about the movies that could have used them/should definitely have them!

(FYI Possible Spiderman & Wonder Woman spoilers. Nothing that isn’t out in the news but if you are trying to stay completely spoiler free for either. Please don’t read.)
