Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

  **Hollow-sized Spoilers** This doesn’t happen often to me. Usually, when it comes to book adaptations, I never become inspired to read the original source material, since it’s rare that I’ve managed to read the book prior to seeing the movie. Now, having seen Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, I have to admit, I’m…

Kubo and the Two Strings

**A song’s worth of spoilers** It’s not hard to admit I know very little about stop motion filming. It’s not a style I’m used to watching. In fact, the few that I can readily call to mind are the more familiar Christmas movies such as Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer. Given that Rudolph was released in…

Pete’s Dragon

**Trailhead Warning: This path leads to creek-sized spoilers** First, let me preface this with saying, I am one of those horrible people who watched Pete’s Dragon with absolutely no recollection of the storybook and only vague memories of the sea from the 1977 film by the same name. I knew the basic premise going in…

Star Trek Beyond

~Written In Loving Memory of Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin~ **Not even an escape pod’s worth of spoilers** If memory serves, despite reaching that advanced age known as the 30s, I believe that Star Trek was the first true science fiction television show to which I was ever exposed. Or rather, Star Trek: Voyager was,…

Finding Dory

**Ahoy Matey, whale sized spoilers ahead!** Thirteen years ago, like most of the world, I watched as Nemo “touched the butt” and realized an exciting new adventure had been born. I grabbed shell and traveled the EAC, I faithfully memorized P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney, and cried when Nemo and Marlin were finally reunited….

Movie Reelz: Apollo 13

Back in the days when summer school was more than just for struggling learners, where you got learn about different topics not necessarily taught during the school year, I was lucky enough to take Astronaut Class. This was not it’s real name, I’m sure it was suitably named for it’s theme, but it dealt primarily…

Captain America: Civil War

Net Worth: All the Gold! (But then again, I’m biased) I will be the first to admit that I don’t read comic books. Not even Archie. While I’ve been known to read the Sunday Comics, it’s rare, almost unheard of to find me with a comic book in my hands. So, I have no great…

Movie Reelz: “Equilibrium”

  Welcome to the first Movie Reelz: Flashback. When I’m waiting in between movie releases or just come across a random movie that I think should get some love, I will blog about it and give it the kudos it may or may not deserve. Since these movies have been out for a minimum of…

“The Huntsman: Winter’s War”

Net Worth: Small nuggets of Gold It’s movies like this that cause me to have trust issues. When I first saw the trailer for it, I thought, “Damn, Hemsworth is cute.” (I know I said I was tomboy, but that does not mean I can’t appreciate a finely honed Australian cutie).  The second thought that…

Just the Bare Necessities of Disney’s “The Jungle Book”

**Spoilers floating downstream, beware!!** Networth: Small potatoes. If you can’t wait for the blu ray release then at least wait for a matinee or dollar theater! To be honest, that spoiler warning wasn’t all that necessary. After all, the Jungle Book has been around since 1893 (for those of you who aren’t math-inclined, that’s 123…
