Dream Holiday Films & Rambles

North Pole in Noelle

I was thinking about a list of things that would make a perfect holiday film for me. It was a childhood dream to be an elf in the North Pole- so there’s that… But then my mind went – Jason Momoa or Tom Hardy can be Santa and then I started thinking…

Hey why shouldn’t Venom 2 be Christmas movie?

And it pretty much went downhill from there đŸ™‚

Ah, books about food!

I originally picked up this book of short stories with the plan to cook some of the food mentioned in this book- and there’s some good stuff. It’s a real food learning experience in the making.

But then I realized I’d have to clean up the mess so I figured I’d settle for reading about the food.

circe uk edition

In super exciting news Circe- which was one of my favorite reads in a very long time- got a straight-to-series order from HBO. I find the writers credits a bit of a mixed bag but the source material is so strong… oh, man I’m having de ja vu cause I am sure I said that before about another HBO series.

But what really matters is the casting…

Witches, Cats, Thrones & My Childhood Fav Returns

Henry Cavil in the Witcher

So Comic-Con is still bringing lots of trailers and information and we haven’t even hit Marvel yet. And there’s also that trailer that wasn’t at comic-con and I think I’ve finally made my peace with Game of Thrones- even that one lingering question that I’d still like an answer to.

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.

The Highwaymen

Directed By: John Lee Hancock

The first I heard of this movie was from the descendants of the lawmen talking about how nice it was to see this story from their side. When I jumped over to Netflix for the preview that, and the cast, was good enough to get me watching something I otherwise might not have bothered with.
