I did not expect to enjoy this. I picked it up because I saw tons of bookstagrammers with it, and knew there was a Netflix movie coming out, and I wanted to compare the two. But about 100 pages into the book I realized that I had underestimated it, and I needed to finish it.
I know Hotel Transylvania movies re for kids. I know I’m 25 years old and still living for animated movies. And I know everyone is watching Infinity War. But I loved Hotel Transylvania 3.
It’s been a long time coming, Fangirls. We’ve waited years for more Incredibles; I’ve been waiting since 2004 to see what’s going on with the Underminer, and how the Parrs deal with juggling super-life and the normal stuff. So to beat the heat last weekend, we went to the movies and fell in love with the Parrs all over again.
It’s kind of rare that I read adult fiction. I am someone who tends to enjoy young adult fiction, and high fantasy. But Crazy Rich Asians is a book with a lot of buzz around it, and with a movie coming out, I decided to check it out.
THIS WILL BE A SPOILER FREE REVIEW, DO NOT FEAR
It happened. Ten years of building up to the biggest showdown in the universe and it’s finally here. Avengers Infinity War opened on Thursday night, and you can bet very easily that I was there for the earliest showing possible. I sat there, two and a half hours of movie, and I spent those two and a half hours going through a roller coaster of beauty.
I spent a good chunk of my high school years watching the original FullMetal Alchemist anime and loving it. I still get nostalgic for it even now. When I first heard about the live action version and saw that first trailer, I needed to see it. I hoped and prayed for it to come to American theaters. It didn’t, but thankfully Netflix got it. I just watched it, and let me tell you how much I loved it.
A week or so ago, I woke up extra early (thanks, brain), got a bunch of stuff done, and wore my injured self out. After hobbling around the apartment for 2 hours, I plopped on the couch and fired up Netflix. Bright was in the new section, and I had been harassed by it daily at work; ads for Bright were popping up on YouTube and Spotify. So I figured, why not?
