Great Translation- Still Don’t Like Him

the odyssey

The Odyssey

Homer/ Translated by: Emily Wilson

So I decided to reread this solely because of the translation- apparently the first in English by a woman. Also because I was in a serious Black Sails mood and had sea-faring pirate vibes going.

Having read a messy, broken hard to follow translation in college (or high school? I just remember being annoyed) I thought I’d give this a go. It’s a great translation but man I still hate Odysseus and his son!

The Midnight Library

The Midnight Library

By: Matt Haig

I think everyone has regrets of some sort big or small. Nora Seed however gets the chance to live all the lives she could have in an effort to save the one she doesn’t want anymore.

Matt Haig’s The Humans is one of my favorite books period and the synopsis of this one just spoke to me. I couldn’t even wait for a stateside release. Had to preorder from book depository.

Totally worth it.

Mulan 2020: Magic & Hair

Mulan

Directed By: Niki Caro

Apparently her real power is the hair.

I mean not only did she never cut it but bouncing around in battle doing all these amazing things and it never gets in her face to allow her enemies to get the better of her. There was actually a moment in a fight scene where all I could think was, “Just grab her hair!” It’s a real testament to not being able to wash it in case the army realizes you aren’t actually a guy.

What the Fuck? Doom Patrol

Doom Patrol Season One

Any recommendation for Doom Patrol Season 1 must start with the question, “What’s your weird and crazy tolerance?” And I’m not talking a little bit I’m talking WEIRD and CRAZY.

I mean talking cockroach that wants to bring about the apocalypse crazy and perhaps my favorite recurring character ever the sentient gender-queer street that homes the misfits of the world.

3 Best Disney Live-Action Remakes

The Princess Edition:

So as we head into Friday’s Mulan opening I thought I’d do a ranking of the Best Disney Princess Live-Action Remakes so far but…

When I really tried to rank them, much as I might enjoy the idea of them, they all kind of run together. Even if they all are really entertaining at the time only 3 really stood out to me so that made a Top 3 a lot easier.
