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.

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?”

Teeth in the Mist

Teeth in the Mist

By: Dawn Kurtagich

I read ‘inspired by the legend of Faust’ and was like sign me up!

I enjoyed both Kurtagich’s previous books The Dead House & And the Trees Crept In so when I saw this one and read witches and deals with the devils along with a suitably creepy cover I jumped at buying and for once it was an immediate read for me.

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.

Steve, Monsters and 80’s Flashbacks: Stranger Things Final Trailer

Eleven faces Stranger Things 3

Stranger Things dropped its final trailer for season 3 and I am ready for the show and speculation!

Also I was only a kid in the 80’s but the fashion, the fashion! Mainly not fashions finest decade but I miss jelly sandals. I mean I have no doubt I could find them again but it wouldn’t be as fun. Anyway this seasons probably going to give me some strong flashbacks.

A Love Letter to Friendship

Good Omens

It’s a love letter to friendship and perhaps a little bit to those who do a half-assed version of their jobs until they realize hey this might be the end of the world.

Crowley (David Tennant) is a demon (who didn’t mean to fall) happy to laze around Earth and send memos while not really doing that much. When he’s put in charge of delivering the newborn anti-Christ to his Earth parents things change.
