movie rewatch: Live Free or Die Hard

Monday, July 9th, 2018

For a movie that came out in 2007, the tech and plot hold up surprisingly well in 2018. (I mean, in the sense that I had no idea what computers were capable of in 2007, and I still don’t today.) And it completes my 4th of July movie viewing! 1. The same actress who played […]

movie update

Friday, July 6th, 2018

*Have now re-watched Independence Day and half of Independence Day 2. *If you buy a movie from itunes and it stops working (like, for instance, the sound plays but the picture is frozen) you can delete the movie from your library and re-download it for free. (Did not know that until this week! Also did […]

“I could have been at a barbecue!”

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

It’s almost the 4th of July, and that means it’s time to get ready for an INDEPENDENCE DAY DOUBLE FEATURE! That’s right. I am the (not entirely proud) owner of Independence Day AND Independence Day 2: Resurgence. (Yes, I did have to google what the subtitle was.) And since it’s approximately a billion degrees outside, […]

one more Star Wars post

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

Super rambling thoughts about the difference between Rogue One and Solo. Because Rogue One was like ‘is it worth it to do bad things/things you find personally immoral in order to serve a greater good? where is the line, if there is a line?’ (Like, Cassian killed that guy in the beginning, and the Rebellion […]

more movie review thoughts on Solo

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

**SPOILERS** (But it’s a prequel? So it’s not like, a total surprise, right?) 1. I’m just going to state for the record that Val clearly faked her death* on the bridge, escaped the planet with Enfys Nest, and lived happily ever after. 2. Speaking of which, I spent the entire movie thinking they were saying […]

movie review: Solo

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Very brief review: *I liked it! I thought perhaps I would not, since Han Solo is not a super likable character for me? *Which does not mean I did not have Some Issues with it. Key takeaway: *When Will The Droids Be Free???

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!

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

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 […]
