So when I heard at DC Fandome Part 2 that Doom Patrol was getting a 3rd season I was like yeah! Partly because I love Doom Patrol and partly because I automatically assumed Harley Quinn was next…
We finally got a trailer for season 2 of The Mandalorian!
I don’t think it reveals a lot but there are some great shots in here and of course the most important thing…
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!
I always see a lot of tips on how to read more and beat reading slumps. But I think strong reasoning is the best motivation for anything so here are some of the reasons it’s a good idea to try to read more.
Some of them people might not want to admit but as a long time big reader… I can vouch for all of them.
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.
So there are rumors now that Wonder Woman 1984 is going to be pushed to December pushing Dune into 2021 and I have some thoughts about that one. There’s also been mention of Black Widow being pushed but that doesn’t seem nearly as loud rumor wise yet.
Summer is finally over!
I mean I’m trying to think on the bright side here in California as temps are still off the charts and movie theaters around me are still closed as well as the many other disasters my state (and life) is currently going through.
At least we still have entertainment and there’s some good stuff coming even without cinemas.
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.
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.
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.
