I fully admit the way I feel about social media, influencers, etc I did not expect much from Not Okay. I certainly didn’t expect it to have some depth and real emotional heft. Of the 3 recent releases I’ve watched streaming (this one, Persuasion and The Gray Man) Not Okay definitely is the best of … More Danni Sanders is Not Okay
It’s one of my goals this year to watch more films and read more internationally. So naturally when I saw Delicious pop up, a film about food and the opening of the first restaurant in 1700’s France I was like yes, good place to start!
I’ve always shied away from this with books for fear I’d be pressing my luck but looking at the list of 2021 movie releases (probably 2021 anyway who knows?) I saw a few that I have hope could be 5-Star Predictions that take me by real surprise. So fingers crossed.
A lot of people have been talking recently about what movie-going is going to look like as we open back up as it’s something I did frequently it’s a subject that really interests me. What will it look like going forward? And will people even go to a crowded theater until a vaccine is available?

I was tagged by the awesome blogger Sophia Ismaa in the Harry Potter Tag! And since today (July 31st) is Harry’s birthday it seemed like fortuitous timing. Also now I can totally (and completely unjustifiably) pat myself on the back and tell myself I’m working on tags. So below I answer the questions and possibly ramble about … More Happy Birthday Harry… a Tag & a Ramble
Seeing as how it’s a New Year and movie award season I’m going to try to participate in the Blind Spot Series hosted by The Matinee blog I’ve read this series on several blogs for at least a year now and I really want to push myself to see more films that have fallen by the wayside. … More The Blind Spot Series 2018
Prediction for the end of the year: I will own an embarrassing amount of Hela merchandise! I’m going to keep this round-up of the first part of 2017 super simple and try not to cry about the fact that we’re halfway through because while 2017 might be halfway over, at least entertainment wise, I think … More 2017 Mid-Year Wrap-Up!
Radiance Author: Catherynne M. Valente Genre: SciFi/ Alt History Grade: A- I’m going to quote the original Amazon blurb that first made me say, “What the hell?” “Radiance is a decopunk pulp SF alt-history space opera mystery set in a Hollywood-and solar system-very different from our own, from Catherynne M. Valente, the phenomenal talent behind … More Radiance
