Oh man did I miss cons!!!! This was my 3rd Awesome Con and even though I only did one day this time unlike the other 2 where I went all 3 days it was still just as fun. So I decided to show my favorite parts of the con. Especially the awesome art by Amourable Art and the fucking bombass vest from Volante Design!
I’m going to keep this short and sweet, I was pleasantly surprised by Jungle Cruise. I went in expecting a shallow treasure hunt movie, but instead I got a movie with a lot more heart, action, and even some twists. It also had some spectacular special effects/CGI that at times caused the only thought in my head to be “beautiful”. But honestly the best part was Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, those two working together in this movie was like cookies and cream. Perfect together. All in all this movie was very enjoyable to watch and deserves a 7.5 out of 10.
This might be late but as they say “better late then never”, so I’m going to dive straight in. All around Black Widow was a top tier movie but when you compare it to the rest of of the MCU it was actually kind of a low tier movie in my opinion. Obviously it had great acting, filming, special effects(you know the works), which is to only to be expected from an MCU so that doesn’t really amaze me anymore. Besides the basics I felt like the movie was lacking that special something that makes most MCU movies so great.
But I think the biggest reason why Black Widow was a let down for me was my massive disappointment with how they did Taskmaster. Now I’m no super fan or expert on Taskmaster but I was really excited to see what they did with the character. I was looking forward to seeing a badass cold-hearted mercenary who only cared about making money. I especially wanted that cliche line… you know the one that goes like “It’s not personal, it’s just business”. But instead of that we got a lobotomized trauma victim, which when you compare Taskmaster to the other Widows in the movie it wasn’t anything different. So, they basically turned someone who could have been a really unique character into a prop.
Now you’re probably thinking all of this means I think you shouldn’t see the movie but you’d actually be wrong. Sure it’s not the greatest movie but it’s defiantly worth it to see in theaters. Especially when you look at it as supporting movie theaters and even Scarlett Johansson. So, all around I would give the movie a 6.5 out of 10.
On the eve of the premiere of season 2 of Ted Lasso I wanted to share a few of my hopes for and things I’m excited about in season 2.
Hopes and Excitements
- Obviously the biggest is that AFC Richmond gets promoted by the end of the season(cause come on the can’t not be promoted)
- Roy is now retired but just keeps showing up at the club for no reason. When asked why he’s there he either lies and says he’s there for Keeley or he just tells them to fuck off and then storms away.
- This is my more out there hope but I’d like to see Ted start up an actual relationship with Sassy.
- I also weirdly hope that Tommy comes back to take an usie with someone.
- And of course i hope that Baz, Jeremy, and Paul haven’t changed one bit!
- Probably my biggest thing I’m excited for is meeting Led Tasso! From the little bit I’ve seen in the trailer he seems awesomely crazy.
- I’m also very curious if and what more are we going to see of Jamie. I hope we get to see him becoming as big of a fan of Ted as Ted is of him.
- I also really really really hope we get a pillow fight instead of movie night!!!!!!
- I’m also very curious to learn if Coach Beard is his real name or just because he has a beard?!?!?
Well these are just a few of my dreams and such for season 2. I can’t wait!!
I been wanting to watch this show for awhile and I finally had the time to watch it and I enjoyed it so much I watched all 8 episode in basically 1 day. Which anyone who binge watches know that’s a blessing and a curse because it’s so good you can’t stop but then you’re left with nothing at the end. For those who don’t know 50m2 is a Turkish Netflix show about a hitman who tries to start a new life by assuming the identity of a dead mans son in a small town. And it is amazing!This show is the perfect combination of thriller and comedy! I kept switching from gasping to laughing so many times and I loved every second of it.
All of that is overshadowed by my love of Gölge(Shadow in english) who I would describe as bad guy with a heart of gold. He’s just trying to start a new life and make new connections with people who don’t want to use him or lie to him. During the whole time watching the show I’m rooting for him so much and I hope he can live his own life. Which with the massive cliffhanger I have no idea if that will happen!
All I can hope is that Netflix will bless us with another season because I need to know what will happen to everyone in the show! So, everyone needs to watch this 10 out of 10 show and give it all the love it deserves!
I don’t think it needs to be said but obviously this show has great acting, plot, special effects etc. which is to be expected for anything in the MCU. Now that that is out of the way I can get into the deeper stuff. This show, so far, is strange, weird, and definitely unique and honestly I have no idea yet if I actually like it or not. But I know for a definite fact that I am all in! I need to know what’s going on! Obviously I went in knowing things were going to be confusing from the trailers but I didn’t really “know know”, you know? So, now I have a new show to wait for every week!
Since I’m a huge nerd as you might have guessed I have already come up with some theories that I just want to put out there. I going to start this by saying yes I’m a huge MCU fan and I know I can easily look up info on specifics to confirm stuff but I don’t want to spoil things for my self.
First thing that is obvious is that nothings real but my 2 theories on that is that it’s either in Wanda’s head or Vision’s. But because Vision was just a little dead last time we saw him I’m more inclined to say Wanda’s but if it is Vision’s I’m guessing it’s something like Altered Carbon(another show I love) where a copy of his mind was stored somewhere before the unfortunate Thanos incident.
Second thing is S.W.O.R.D. is a thing. Now this is where my knowledge is lacking because I haven’t read the comics but I don’t want to look it up to confirm things right now. What I do know from the internet and a book I have is that S.W.O.R.D. is a thing. I know that it’s connected to S.H.I.E.L.D. but I don’t know if it’s better or worse then S.H.I.E.L.D. that I will leave up to the show to tell me. But I do have two theories about S.W.O.R.D.. One is that they’re the good guys and are trying to wake Wanda up from some crazy coma some yet unknown bad guy put her in for some nefarious reason or they are said bad guy and someone yet unknown is trying to save her from S.W.O.R.D..
And so the only way to find out is to keep watching while I also wait for any more easter eggs or connections to the rest of the MCU. Specifically any mentions of Stark because I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed my Tony fix and I will never admit to my self that he is truly gone. But anyways back on topic I will definitely keep watching!
I’m going to jump right in, I LOVED THIS SHOW! For those who don’t know Noughts + Crosses is a BBC show that is a Romeo and Juliet star crossed lovers story that takes place in an alternate reality where Aprica aka Africa conquered Europe. It’s set in London, Albion aka England and focuses on the relationship between Callum a Nought(white low class) and Sephy a Cross(black upper class) in a society where interracial couples are illegal.
First, the premise of the show is extremely interesting to watch, seeing a London based on African culture was cool to see. Same as seeing a society basically flipped on its head. But all of this pales to the joy I experienced watching the relationship between Callum and Sephy! I mostly watch supernatural or action shows so when I absolutely love something that’s neither one of those you know it’s good.
This show made me go through so many feels watching all the struggles these 2 lovers had to go through just for them to be happy together. All in all I give this show a 10 out of 10 because I loved it so much and really really really hope that’s there’s going to be a second season. So, if you want to watch you can find it on Peacock.
