Well No House is Ever Perfect

Locke and Key

Locke & Key

Netflix Series

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.

The Women of The Witcher

Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia

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!

Miss Americana

By: Lana Wilson

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…

Book Predictions for the 2020’s

 

Screen Shot 2019-10-19 at 8.52.30 PM

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.

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 🙂

Hungry Hearts

Hungry Hearts

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.

Thoughts on The Crown Trailer

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.

Shadow and Bone Casting News!

Shadow and Bone

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.

Circe News & Her Satanic Majesty: A July Wrap-Up

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.
