movie re-review: Thor 3

Monday, April 9th, 2018

I’ve been trying to figure out why Thor 3 was so enjoyable to watch, compared with basically everything else the MCU has put out recently (except for Black Panther, which was great!). And I finally came up with two things. 1. Character interaction — Thor and Loki have known each other for thousands of years. […]

wtf Wednesday

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

I was pretty excited about Pacific Rim 2, but after nearly a week of suspicious silence on my tumblr dash, I figured I should probably do some checking before I made weekend plans. First I read some reviews, which were about what I expected — some people said it was awful, some people said it […]

finally watched Thor Ragnarok

Monday, March 12th, 2018

Rented Thor Ragnarok, enjoyed it greatly. Hoping to have some kind of more coherent thoughts on it at a later date. In the meantime, a tangent on accents, because I still cannot get over “Doctor Strange” and his American accent. WHY? [Also, the gloves. WHY??? A truly, staggeringly, weird outfit choice.] [[For someone who is […]

and another thing!

Black Panther was great, seriously. But it did kind of grind my gears that they didn’t even hint towards the Accords when they did the chase through South Korea. [‘Hey, we’re going to have our enhanced superhero (plus team) cross your borders and chase an enhanced villain (plus team) through a crowded city, causing an […]

questions ANSWERED!

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Saw Black Panther yesterday, thought it was excellent. Would watch again. And now, answers to the Very Important Questions. (Pretty non-spoilery, especially if you have seen the trailers.) 1. Does T’Challa like cats? Answer still unclear. I would tentatively say signs point to yes. 2. Does *everyone* in Wakanda like cats? Also still unclear. I […]

very important questions

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Interrupting the usual workaday Wednesday post not because it’s Valentines Day, but because BLACK PANTHER is about to hit theaters. (Official release date 2/16, which I assume means people can start watching it tomorrow night?) Which means it is time for some Very Important Questions about this movie: 1. Does T’Challa like cats? (Come on, […]

year of movies

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Movies I’d watch in the theater: *Avengers Infinity War (ugh, I guess, I feel committed now) *Black Panther *Pacific Rim Uprising (!!!) Movies I’d rent to watch at home: *Incredibles 2 (never heard of this before, but google says it’s happening) *Oceans 8 (willing to see in the theater, but if it’s like the other […]

mini Star Wars review

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

I liked it! *Were those the same books? At the end, in the drawer? *What was Chewbacca doing for the hours between dropping Rey off and showing up later? Just — hanging out? *I feel like the moment of ‘that looks weird; I’ll taste it’ on the salt planet could be a standard intro test […]

nano day 10

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Starting word count: 14,800 (Yesterday was not the day. Maybe today will be the day!) Goal word count: 16,667 Random thought of the day: You know what was a good movie? Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time. Of all the funny lines, the phrase, “Aye, they are wee small digits” has stuck with me over […]

movie re-watch: Hocus Pocus

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

1. Allison never gets a last name? Or parents, although they’re mentioned. (As in “this party is full of friends of my parents,” not “yes, they’re around here somewhere.”) 2. I was baffled by all the ‘thee’ and ‘thou’ stuff, but I admit I have zero knowledge of linguistic patterns in 1693. (PS: also baffled […]
