The Sirens of Gotham & What’s Next for Harley

Gotham City Sirens

Gotham City Sirens

Possibly controversial opinion…

Between DC and Marvel I think DC has the better characters. I mean yeah the cinematic universe Marvel is better although DC has some good animated stuff and DC definitely has the better villains and anti-heroes in my humble opinion of course.

Save the Mutants! The X-Men & the MCU

Michael Fassbender as Magneto

Seeing as how it’s Comic-Con week I feel like indulging in a little speculation and fun with some different fandoms.

I love the X-Men despite what a disaster they’ve been recently so I decided on the Top 10 Mutants I most want Marvel to include and a little bit of speculation where and with who  I think they’d fit best.

To be honest I see most of them coming in as villains at least at first!

Far From Home Hints at an Interesting Future MCU

Spiderman: Far From Home

Directed By: Jon Watts

If I was to sum up Far From Home I’d say entertaining diverting fun but the most interesting stuff is in the credits teasing what’s to come for the MCU.

And Peter’s relationship with Tony and that’s not just me making everything about Tony 🙂 he looms large in Far From Home.

Halfway through 2019: A Little Look Backward & Forward

tenant and sheen in good omens

We made it to the half way point! Cheers to us!

Thinking back over all the entertainment books, television and films over the last couple of months all I can do is hope that there are some nice surprises to come. I mean don’t get me wrong there’s been some good stuff even some gems but nothing that really surprised me.

But there are definitely some great options ahead. Especially in books!

Revolution, Class & Food Stuff: Snowpiercer

Jamie Bell and Chris Evans

Snowpiercer

Directed By: Bong Joon-Ho

So I had one thought for my June Blindspot- I wanted to watch something that screamed summer.

Naturally I ended up watching the first rate Snowpiercer a movie where the cure for global warming has unhelpfully froze the planet to the point of extinction and Captain America cops to doing something that would make Bucky and Tony equally go, “What? You did what?”

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.

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.

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.
