Seen It: Passengers (2016)

There are many films about going into space, being lost in space, or having a massive problem of some sort while out in space. This film has an interesting storyline with a twist while being a familiar storyline. Overall, some parts of this film I enjoyed very much while other parts weren’t as enjoyable or could have been changed to…

Seen It: Swiss Army Man

This film has a lot going on just in the idea of it. I’m not sure what to call it. Maybe physical fantasy fiction. Swiss Army Man to me sounds like it could be about a man in the Swiss Army. However, it is about a man being used as a utility tool much like a Swiss Army knife. It…

Read It: George Lucas: A Life

This biography was very informative and had a great narrative. I unexpectedly picked it up from the library while getting another book. I definitely do not regret picking it up even though it took me a while to get through it. I can say there was a lot I didn’t know that I’m glad that I know now and I…

Read It: The Testament of Mary

I don’t spend much of my time reading anything related directly to any sort of organized faith. I picked this one up because of it being on the ‘2013 Man Booker Longlist’. It was also an easy one to knock off the list since it is fairly short. Even with all of that, I’ve read worse than this. It had…

Seen It: Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

This movie was an unexpected pickup on a bad day and I honestly needed a movie to make me laugh. As far as that’s concerned, it was an excellent choice for a laugh. I didn’t know what to expect when I picked it up other than it was a comedy. With that, I wasn’t disappointed. Turned off my brain for…

Seen It: Out of Africa

Non-fiction is the genre I tend to gravitate towards, if you couldn’t already tell. There are not many stories that I haven’t enjoyed. However, almost none of those that I have enjoyed before are set in Africa and that is one of the things that drew me to this movie. In every tale about Africa, it is an adventure from…

Seen It: Testament of Youth (2014)

A stunning film from start to end. It is based off a book of the same name, that I have yet to read, about a young woman living through WW1 as a daughter, sister, fiancé, writer, and nurse. Her brother and her significant other are soldiers in the war while she turns from a student writer to a nurse as…

Fan Fiction, The 100

Ship It: Holon

A few years ago now, I remember watching the 100 during the time that the first season aired. I love media that shows the future and especially the apocalyptic future as it seems like a much more tangible future to me. So, when I saw a commercial for the 100 I knew I had to watch it. I watched two…

Seen It: Evita (1996)

I remember growing up and seeing the commercials for the movie with the memorable “Don’t Cry for me Argentina” balcony scene. Then later on VHS, finally, seeing the movie! Back then I was taken by the fast movements and singing without really understanding the story. Now, as a much older person, I have a lot more knowledge and understanding.

Read It: Children of the Gods Series – Oppression

Religion, and the many Gods that have been believed in, deeply mark human history. Each religion has their own set of books, their own truths, full of adventures, death, and love. The Greeks and their belief in the Gods that only had as much power as they believed the Gods had. Now, they’re myth, fiction, in the modern world. This book,…
