Fantastic Beasts Brings Back the Magic

After enjoying Doctor Strange just a few weeks ago, it is such a rare thrill to watch another movie that keeps me riveted to the screen.  JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them makes up for all the lackluster movies we have seen this year.  It’s awesome to finally see the wizarding world outside of Hogwarts.

The truth is, I’ve always felt the Harry Potter movies did not do much justice to JKR’s books.  I always felt they never captured the wonder I felt while reading the books.  With no actual story behind this film, the movie gave JKR more room to let her imagination run wild.  What we wanted to see more in Harry Potter movies we saw in Fantastic Beasts.  We see more magical creatures, more action, and better humor.   ( Read more )

Disney’s Live Action Beauty and the Beast

disney beauty and the beast

In an entertainment industry which has found success in gore and the post apocalypse, it is refreshing to know we can still look forward to movies that feature love stories without all the drama of terminal disease, unfaithfulness, or even suicide. I am talking about the live action version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.  I can still remember falling in love with the animation version decades ago and I swear I can sing along with almost every song in the movie.  To know it’s coming out in live action is quite exciting and scary. Scary because of the big possibility they can mess up one of the most beautiful animated movies of Disney or the actors will be forced to sing the song themselves to make us cringe. ( Read more )

The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere: What’s More Scary Than Zombies?


Negan and Lucille

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Most of us had a feeling that it was Glen’s time in The Walking Dead Season 7.  We were preparing ourselves for it.  We knew Lucille (Negan’s bat) would kill him.  For so many months we were resigned to it.  So, when Abraham took the hits, it was a mixture of relief and disappointment.  They killed a minor character.  I thought maybe they were right.  TWD was becoming boring.

I was dead wrong.  It just came without warning.  When Lucille hit Glen’s head, I just stopped breathing.  And seeing Glen with his eye almost off its socket but still alive was unforgiving.  We were preparing ourselves for death.  But not when we thought he was already safe.  And not that way.

I’ve seen all the episodes of TWD, but that was definitely the scariest.  Hell, no zombie can compete with Negan.  I’d probably faint if I met Jeffrey Dean Morgan walking on the street, lol.  At least I hope that’s what would happen.  Because I’d rather not pee in my pants.

Now, that’s what I call a villain.
