How Does Anyone Survive?

Well Met

Why is sex in romance books, at least between our star-crossed lovers, always so damned perfect?

Okay maybe that’s not the right word nor can you say that about all books- I certainly haven’t read them all but just once I want to read one where the main couple finally get together have sex and then think hm, we’ll that just wasn’t good at all.

I suppose that would be anti-climatic.

It Chapter 2: Thoughts & Spoilers

It Chapter 2

Directed By: Andy Muschietti

Stephen King is well-known for not always sticking the landings as they say. It is probably a big part of that. The film makes fun of that as well teasing writer Bill that no one likes his endings.

Overall I have to say I enjoyed the film. Lots of positives. But I don’t think they stuck the landing and I don’t think that can be put on King either.

Ophelia Leads to a Hamlet Reread

Ophelia

Ophelia

Directed By: Claire McCarthy

A couple of weeks ago I watched Ophelia- which is basically Hamlet through Ophelia’s eyes. She’s one of my favorite Shakespeare characters a truly tragic character (unlike those impetuous dumbasses Romeo and Juliet.) And I thought with Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts it seemed like it was a good bet.

It also drove me to reread Hamlet for the first time since high-school which I found surprisingly enjoyable!

Stranger Things: Thoughts & Questions on Season 3 (Spoilers!)

stranger things season three

So I watched the 3rd season of Stranger Things in record amount of time (for me.) I think 3 goes down as my favorite season. I had some issues with it but for the most part I can say I love these characters, love spending time with them and am already excited for season 4.

My standouts and a very important Hopper question below as well as…

The Bells Marks My First Real Fear for the Books

So The Bells happened.

I’m going to talk about the last episode of Game of Thrones which did in some fairly major characters (in more ways than one) and why I’m worried about the books for the first time and not just that Martin probably won’t finish them.

Disclaimer one: If you don’t want to hear anything at all criticizing the show fair to you. Don’t read.

Obviously SPOILERS and swearing! Definite swearing in this one.

GOT: Thoughts and Unpopular Opinions on Dany… Spoilers!

dany game of thrones

So I wasn’t going to write about Thrones until it was over but oh boy the Dany stuff and in a lot of ways the reaction that’s spun up around it. I feel like I have to work some things out and write through it.

WARNING: Spoilers through episode four! FYI there are spoilers about the end that seem to be leaning toward true. I’m not going to talk about them here but just be careful if you’re out there on the Internet.

Disclaimer: If you are enjoying the show and don’t want to hear anything bad about it that’s wonderful! Enjoy it. I get it. No one’s stopping you. Don’t read this. There’s a lot of good things and hard work on this show but for what its worth my biggest problem with the show is and has always been the writing.

And what it might mean for the books but for now this is just about the show.

Avengers Endgame MVP’s & Spoilers!

Avengers Endgame

If I think about it the entire MCU has been like a book series that I’ve been reading for over a decade now which finally came to an end. More impressively despite all the build-up and all the hype I think it was an entertaining powerful and well earned ending.

I feel like it’s a movie I have to see again to take in everything I probably missed the first time. Which I will. So instead the MVP’s (sometimes a bit general) but spoilers, spoilers, spoilers below!

Who’s Getting the Iron Throne…

jon and drogo

I admit I have two modes when it comes to Game of Thrones: complaining about it and endless speculating/theorizing. So it’s been a stressful month I thought I’d have a little fun with a Who’s Gonna Get the Throne list and my percentage chances for each of the big ones.

Obviously spoilers for the show and the books up to this point and a lot of speculation about both. Disclaimer these are just my opinions and thoughts on some of the theories so if I seem to be mocking one you truly believe in I don’t mean to be but like I said I just want to have some fun 🙂
