Nightmare of the Wolf: First Rate Witcher Work

Okay even for a Witcher animated movie Nightmare of the Wolf opens with such violence I was like, eh maybe not.

Luckily I stuck with it and this look into the life of Vesemir (he’s super important to Geralt) was well worth it. And while violent throughout with a great battle at the end nothing really reached the gross violence of the opening if you’re squeamish.

Addiction, Marriage & Falling Apart

Adele

Adèle

By: Leila Slimani

Grade: C+

Okay, I admit the only other book or film I’ve watched about a character with sex education was Shame and while I thought it was really good I didn’t exactly watch that for learning purposes, you know?

The Party’s Just Beginning

Directed By: Karen Gillan

Grade: B

I was super excited to see Karen Gillans writing and directorial debut show up on iTunes. I’ve been a huge fan since her Amy Pond days so I really wanted to check this out and support an actress I love going behind the camera (and writing!)

I think it’s a really strong debut a character study that will stick with me but I can’t say I loved it.
