So Margot Robbie is getting involved with the Pirates franchise which seemed like a good start to a July 4th edition of Looking Forward… (hm I made it editions now which usually calls for consistency so we’ll see how that goes!)
Well we have a while still until Black Widow (hopefully in November) but if you’re looking for some movie merchandise for yourself or a gift Build a Bear has kindly and maybe unexpectedly provided:
Locke & Key
I went into this one with a bit of worry. I read the first two graphic novels in this series (by Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez) a while back and didn’t love them, didn’t hate them but definitely didn’t keep reading. I remember it being pretty dark and just generally not in the mood for it at the time.
I would say the show is a wildly different tone from what I remember. Not without flaws but still super fun.
When The Witcher dropped on Netflix my biggest question was how were the female characters in the show going to fare…
As I’ve mentioned that other big fantasy adaptation- well I pretty much wound up despising every choice they made for the female characters especially. It’s still too early to really judge The Witcher after only 8 episodes but I think they’re off to an interesting start.
Spoilers! Spoilers! Spoilers!

A Taylor Swift documentary? Of course I’m going to break my film slump for that one! Thank you Netflix 🙂
As a long-term fan of Taylor I got to admit…
It’s a whole new decade and I was thinking about what book world and reading would look like this time in 10 years. How will the 20’s shape and change books for us? Or books change the 20’s?
Below are my predictions.
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 🙂
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.
Season 3 of The Crown is probably the last of my last big anticipated entertainment events of 2019. Netflix dropped the trailer and overall I’m actually a little more excited.
So we have some casting news about the Shadow and Bone/Six of Crows series coming to Netflix and it looks really good. But it does lead to probably my biggest personal hang- up in YA fantasy casting adaptations.
