All my 2018 Films in One Sentence Each

venom close up

I’ve seen people do flashback sort of posts where they talk about every book they’ve read in a year and try to summarize each in one sentence.

I thought I’d do it for all the 2018 releases I saw in theaters just to see if I could actually manage. Probably not… I tend to be wordy. But here goes… Also since I haven’t seen all the films I’ve wanted yet I don’t feel like I can do a best list but I’m marking the ones I would put on it!

Spring Favs and Recommendations

This is a bit of a Spring Favorites/Spring recommendations tag. I did a Winter one here and hoped to do it seasonally. So yeah for keeping up. I know technically there’s a bit of time left for Spring but honestly once we hit Memorial Day it’s summer (and I’m already looking forward to Fall.)

I’m combining books, film and television I’ve seen recently. The tag is originally by Zarriah Rose over on Youtube.

Farewell February: T’Challa, Endless Books & Nostalgia Watching

Deadly Flying Bears & Creepy Motherhood

borne

Borne

By: Jeff Vandermeer

Grade: A

A giant flying and deadly bear called Mord. Rampaging biotech left over from the company that brought it all about. Radioactive rain and rivers. Half-buried astronauts. A magician… and it all gets somehow weirder when a scavenger called Rachel finds a strange creature living in Mord’s fur. She gathers him up. She takes him home.

And welcome to a newer creeper motherhood.

And also what it means to be a person. To be real. To be afraid. To be learning. To be out of control.

10 Love (and Life) Lessons I Took from Books

Harley and Batman

*It’s possible that I’ve learned some of the wrong lessons from books. Regardless books always help me feel better in a pinch. This is inspired by Top Ten Tuesdays hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. I am not all the big into Valentine’s Day or the most romantically inclined person overall but this is what came to mind!
