Black Panther: Follow-up Thoughts

After my initial reaction to Black Panther, I've had some more time to process everything and so, I'm writing another review that's more structured. There are some new points and mostly old points, but my thoughts are better organized here: Yes, the hype surrounding Black Panther has everything to do with the all-black cast, black director, black … Continue reading Black Panther: Follow-up Thoughts

Black Panther: THAT Good!

Spoiler Warning! This is an in-depth spoiler review. Wow. I was blown away by this movie. Because there is so much to dissect and break down and I have so many thoughts and I'm just going to barely scratch the surface.

Beauty and the Beast Review (ish)

I thought the movie was good...and I don't have a whole lot more to say about it. But I do have thoughts on other issues surrounding the movie! First, I'll give my quick review. Not taking into account the 1991 original, I thought this was a really good adaptation of the Beauty and the Beast … Continue reading Beauty and the Beast Review (ish)

Marvel-Netflix. And Foggy Nelson.

Well, Luke Cage was likely a big hit. It got a lot of praise at any rate, but I don't know what Netflix viewing numbers look like.

Reading it over again, I think I did a good job carefully explaining why I have a problem with Ginny and how most … Continue reading My Problem with Ginny

Hermione Granger, Emma Watson, and Noma Dumezweni

And the controversy surrounding that is the reaction of many fans to the fact that the actor is black. Whereas, Hermione is definitely, white right? Not necessarily. J.K. Rowling didn't seem to think … Continue reading Hermione Granger, Emma Watson, and Noma Dumezweni

Let’s Talk about Yara

There was quite some scene there with Yara Greyjoy during S6E7. Of course the most important part of the speech was her conversation with Theon, her tough love and no-nonsense attitude that makes her awesome, but viewers did take note of the interaction right before that. Note on spoilers: There are no major spoilers here, … Continue reading Let’s Talk about Yara
