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!
Unless it’s fantasy or has sword fighting of some kind I don’t normal watch period dramas. They usually have to have some dark or actiony for me to want to watch them so I wasn’t really planning on watching Bridgerton when it first came out but then my sister had the family watch it together. And my first thought about it was that it was great! It was so much fun to watch and I can’t wait for the next season.
I think what made this show great was its unpredictable predictability. By that I mean you could easily guess where it was going but you were always wondering what will happen between point A and point B. This made the show an easy and enjoyable watch with only a minor bit of stress. And as every ad is saying right now that’s a good thing in these stressful times. But seriously sometimes you want a show that has you on the edge of your seat every time other times you want a semi-peaceful show that you can just simply watch knowing that things are going to turn out okay with your favorite character somehow. So I definitely recommend people watch this show.
I only had 2 things I had a problem with in this show. The first and biggest is the costumes. I’m not saying the costumes are bad, they are beautiful, I just personally don’t like that time era of dresses because they always look like nightgowns to me and it always messes with my head by making me think they’re walking around in public in the their pjs. The second problem I had was that they very very very subtly gave a reason in the show to why the cast could be so racially diverse in this time period. I had a problem with this because I preferred it much more when there was no reason in the show for the casting, I enjoyed the fact that the cast was diverse for no reason and I felt that making a canon reason in the show just made it less cool. So, really the only problems I had with the show was because my own personal preferences. All in all I give this show an 8.5 out of 10!
I’m going to start this off by saying that I’m more of a Marvel fan then DC so I’m a little biased about my superhero movie. But even still I enjoy having more superhero movies to watch so I try to keep an open mind. All in all I thought Wonder Women 1984 was an adequate movie I guess. I wasn’t a huge fan of it which I was expecting because I wasn’t really a fan of the first one or of Wonder Women the character as a whole.
Besides for that I thought it was relatively average for a superhero movie, there were just too many things that were a problem for it to be a great movie. First the main villains’ “power” and his thought process to get to his goal was boring and stupid to me. Sure his power was… well powerful it was just plain boring and I feel like the way he went about making himself powerful was a little lacking in forethought and a plan. He was just to rushed for anything to work out. And then the way he was beaten was very anti-climatic, confusing, and definitely didn’t take human nature into account(which is also one of my biggest problems in the first movie). Like did Max renouncing his wish negate all others, because if it didn’t there is no way in hell that everyone in whole world who saw his broadcast would renounce their wish. But even that pales to what I believe was the biggest problem of the movie which can be wrapped up by talking about bringing back Chris Pines’ character which was useless. It was useless because with the fact that this movie takes place in the past of the DCU you know everything has to be wrapped up and that some how these characters have to disappear some way or another or it wouldn’t make sense why they’re not in the “newer” movies. It also doesn’t make sense to me that such a huge event would happen in the “past” and they, more specifically Batman wouldn’t have known about Diana through those events happening. So all of these problems I have with the movie would lead me to say it’s a 5.5 out of 10. All in all, completely average.
Being the huge nerd I am I have always wanted to get a LootCrate or any of the other loot box brands but the one reason I wanted to get was the same reason I was skeptical to get one. And that is the fact that because I’m a nerd I get a lot of nerd merch and thus I was always afraid that if get a loot box it’s just going to be a bunch of stuff I already have. But my fears were put to rest when my friend go a 3 month subscription for me for my birthday and Christmas. So now it’s show-n-tell time!
Now time for the scary part lets see whats in this box!
So the first thing I noticed was that everything is green themed, whether that was a coincidence or on purpose I don’t know. If it is on purpose I hope the next one is red themed so I can get something Iron Man themed! Anyways I was happy with this haul because I didn’t have any of these, and I even learned about a new Marvel character I didn’t know about. All in all I can’t wait for my next box!
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.
Recently I finished reading Eragon(currently on the third), and I know you’re probably wondering it’s been out for a long time why are you just reading it now? In my defense I wasn’t into reading back when it came out so I never read ended up reading. But I was really into dragons so I watched the movie when it came out and since I never read the book I loved the movie. So when I finally did get into reading I avoided reading the book like the plague because I had heard that it was like so many other book adaptions a.k.a. it sucked and I didn’t want to ruin a movie I liked so I never read it. But recently I re-watched that movie and I was like “fuck it I want more dragons!” and decided to finally read the books.
I’m going to start by saying that I know it wasn’t a great movie and that the changes they made to the actual characters were bad but as someone who has seen so many different movie adaptations that have truly and absolutely suck I don’t really know why this one got so much hate. Because honestly compared to other movies this one was okay, especially if you look at it from the perspective that they were probably not planning on making any of the sequels. I’m not saying that if it was a hit they wouldn’t have made more but to me it looks like the way they made it made it okay if there wasn’t anymore movies after. Like if you look at the changes and stuff they omitted it makes a lot of sense because more then half of the stuff they kept out were big plot points in the next book so excluding it from the movie just kept there from being plot holes or a bunch of cliffhangers. Also I understand some of the stuff they changed so that the story could fit into the time limit of a movie and be within budget. So, honestly I thought it was a pretty good adaptation and my opinion of the movie hasn’t really changed. Obviously that isn’t saying I wouldn’t love there to be more movies and for those to be more accurate to the books. But of all the book adaptations I’ve seen, this one gets a green light and doesn’t deserve the dislike it got.
Ha you like that word play? I do. But really the first episode of the last season of Shameless came on and it’s bitter sweet. Sweet because it was a fun episode but bitter because I know this is the beginning of the end. This is going to be a short post because I don’t want to spoil too much about the episode but I still need to write a little blurb about my love of Shameless. Now I enjoy probably every Shameless episodes(no bad one comes to mind) and this one was no different but the biggest thing that interested me is that it seems like they’re making Covid a huge plot point this season. Which I feel like is a little different from other shows, most other shows I feel like are barely mentioning or just pretending it doesn’t exist in their show. So, this is going to be interesting to see how the Gallaghers are going to survive it. Which I have no doubt they will because as Frank always says “Gallaghers are Fighters”. I just hope that this is going to be a super fun and crazy last season!
