Baby Yoda

Instead of talking about The Rise of Skywalker I wanted to endlessly speculate about my favorite piece of Star Wars media in ages- the Mandalorian. Whose season finale airs this coming Friday.

Obviously spoilers through the most recent episode 7 below.

These Look Like Fun: Maverick and Avenue 5

Tom Cruise Maverick

Once upon a time there was a little girl who liked books and was just getting over an illness when she looked upon the television and saw a movie with hot guys with attitudes in uniform, fast planes, motorcycles and thought… oh, I like this.

It’s going to be my childhood classic.

I finally finished the series!

And seeing as the show always calms me down and the holiday times coming I thought this would be a perfect time for my Top 5 Parks and Recreations episodes if you can slip away for 30 minutes of the busy days and take a breather!

Although there are so many cute moments throughout each show and character highlights that I had trouble narrowing it down to 5.

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 🙂

It’s End of Year List Time!

the grinch

I’m trying not to think of the End of the Year looming or the end of the decade for that matter. But I do need to get some organization going so I thought I’d do the tag but make it a bit of a catch-all for books, films and television!

The tag was originally created on Youtube by Ariel Bissett.

Hungry Hearts

Ah, books about food!

I originally picked up this book of short stories with the plan to cook some of the food mentioned in this book- and there’s some good stuff. It’s a real food learning experience in the making.

But then I realized I’d have to clean up the mess so I figured I’d settle for reading about the food.

So we’re definitely getting House of the Dragon which is the Targaryen prequel to Game of Thrones that has been talked about for a while. If you’ve read Fire and Blood or know anything about the history… well the family is a mess but quiet honestly more interesting than these two screw-ups so I’m excited!

It also means lets all find our favorite blondes and start fan-casting!

Season 3 of The Crown is probably the last of my last big anticipated entertainment events of 2019. Netflix dropped the trailer and overall I’m actually a little more excited.

Just Don’t Hurt Hank: Barry Season One

Bill Hader as Barry

Barry

Created By: Bill Hader & Alec Berg

The first thing I want to admit about season one of Barry is it took me until episode 3 to really get into it. When Barry and Hank have the bullet argument I was totally in. And I find the character work and the writing of each season fascinating. Not the least bit because I’ve watched so many interviews with Hader and Berg about writing it that I can’t stop myself.
