Superhero Questions & Aqua-thoughts that Have Been Bugging Me

Mera in Aquaman

So after seeing Captain Marvel, rewatching Aquaman and generally having insomnia right now I made a list of some of the superhero movie thoughts and questions that have been bugging me. Not just why doesn’t Mera take control of Atlantis cause she’s certainly powerful and smarter than Orm…

Recommendations for Avoiding the Big Game…

So I thought I’d do some recommendations for those of us who aren’t watching the Super Bowl but who are stuck where everyone else is- or just recommendations period for a Winter Sunday. Then it sort of turned into a Super Bowl themed tag and includes books, movies, shows.

The whole nine years… which is a football thing right? Or golf? I don’t remember.

My First Die Hard

Die Hard

Directed By: John McTiernan

Grade: A-

Die Hard was my Blind Spot movie for November because I am in a very weird holiday mood. It was Die Hard or Krampus. But this… this turned out to be a good pick. Not sure I’d classify it as a Christmas movie as much as some people do but whatever.

It has young cute Alan Rickman in a suit.

Finally Mulan!

Mulan

Directed By: Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook

Grade: A

I watched Mulan for the first time ever this month and I’m using it for my Blindspot Series for September even though it wasn’t on my list!

Contemplating Changing Opinions & Blogging Life

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 4.20.58 PM

So at the end of September I will have had this blog for 4 years. I was looking back over old posts to see if my opinions had changed about anything. I reread a couple of books I’ve loved in the past. I rewatched a bunch of movies. Probably the big one this year I’ve tried the whole audio book thing again.

Frankenstein

Frankenstein

Frankenstein

By: Mary Shelley

Grade: A

Whoa! Two classics this year for me! I am on a roll 🙂

Embarrassing fact: I was totally one of those people who thought Frankenstein was the monster. I mean I figured it out long before I read it but yeah, I thought that way too long myself. I enjoyed the book. Surprised myself really. But since a lot has been written about it I thought I’d just basically transcribed some of the notes I took.

Mostly on Frankenstein.

Spoilers.
