My boyfriend and I were scrolling Netflix the other day, and Breaker Upperers came up as a recommended movie. It looked silly, and then we saw that it was by Taika Waititi, and knew we had to watch it. Take Waititi is responsible for What We Do In The Shadows and Thor: Ragnarok. You may see some familiar WWDITS faces in here, though!
I read and adored Light as a Feather by Zoe Aarsen. I thought it was an incredibly fun take on a children’s game-turned-horror-story. It was a bit silly, in a dark way, and I really enjoyed it. And I bought it because I saw that it was a Hulu series.
As I’m sure many of you do, I tend to struggle to decide what to watch on Netflix. We have a couple things that we watch every night after work; we catch up on Game Grumps, Pet Collective, and Fail Videos on YouTube, and on Monday’s we watch Bob’s Burgers on Hulu. But the other day, we saw an advertisement for Aggretsuko, and I fell in love immediately.
Friends and Fangirls, I saw Atomic Blonde this past weekend and had the absolute best time. Saying that movie was everything I had hoped it would be is an understatement, and I can not recommend it enough. So let’s talk about it.
There will be spoilers here, but none too serious.
I want to start by saying I know nothing about Archie. I read one of the first issues of a revival of it because a friend recommended it. But the show Riverdale has been on my watch list since I first saw the weird CW treatment it was getting.
I’m a week late to seeing this movie, but I feel like I’ll make up for it by seeing it a thousand more times. It’s the super hero movie I’ve been waiting for. Yes, I am normally and always will be a Marvel girl. Yes, I wish and hope and pray that Marvel figures it out and gives more than just Captain Marvel her own movie (don’t get me wrong I am super excited for some Carol Danvers). And yes, I was worried about Wonder Woman given DC’s track record. But I needn’t have been, because she is the hero we deserve and the hero we need.
I cannot stop smiling about this week’s episode. It was all about Mad Sweeney, who’s my favorite, and his travels with two very strong women, played by the same actress. Woven through the modern day story is the story of how Mad Sweeney came to America, narrated by the one and only Mr. Ibis, who – as Mr. Jacquel remarks in the beginning of the episode – has a story to tell.
