Category Archives: Lists of Six!
Everybody needs a hobby. One of mine is this blog, for which I’ve tried to post every day for more than five years now. That’s pretty impressive. But I think I’m going to peak this year, because this is the year that I summon Blog Captain Planet. It starts with a list on the coolest superheroes with the power to control the ground beneath our feet.
Coming up with ideas for these Lists of Six every week can be kind of tough. And sometimes I’ll fall back on an easy choice, like a list of superheroes with similar powers. I once did fire, then water and wind…which leaves Earth and heart! Then I will summon Blog Captain Planet!
Join me after the jump for the top six comic book characters who control the dirt!
Star War: The Last Jedi is now in our rearview mirror and the Han Solo stand alone film is on its way in only a few short months. This makes it the perfect time to speculate about what I want to see in the next main chapter of the Star Wars saga! How will the new trilogy come to an end? What about Snoke?!
I liked The Last Jedi well enough, and I’ve come to like it even more once I started to understand parts of it better. I still like all the new characters and I look forward to whatever else might happen. As some people have pointed out, The Last Jedi didn’t really leave any major cliffhangers that need to be resolved. Both sides of the war are pretty much where they were when the movie started and all characters are accounted for. So story wise, I’m not sure what’s going to happen.
But you’re gosh darn right I have some ideas! Join me after the jump for six things I want to see in Star Wars: Episode IX! And feel free to share your own hopes, dreams and fears in the comments.
I love movies. I love all storytelling, really, but I especially enjoy going out to the movies. It’s a fun event, whether alone or with friends. Last year, my New Year’s Resolution was to go see more movies in the theater. I pulled off that plan with flying colors, and the universe rewarded me with that $10 a month MoviePass deal! Anybody else taking advantage of that? It may all come crashing down sooner rather than later, but for now, I’m just gonna keep heading to the theater over and over again!
2018 promises to be a pretty cool year for movies. There are a lot on my list that I still need to see from 2017, but I want to look ahead with rose-colored glasses at the fun year I”m going to have at the cinema! It’s going to be so much fun, I had to double-up on some of my answers here!
Join me after the jump for the movies I am most looking forward to in the year ahead! And please feel free to share some of your own in the comments!
In just a few short days, 2017 will come to an end and we’ll all move on with our lives. Was it a good year? I suppose. The highlight of the year was publishing my own graphic novel, Gamer Girl & Vixen, with my awesome team. And I just got off a great family trip to Universal Studios in Florida. And I’m not dead yet. So I suppose 2017 was an OK year.
And like every other pop culture-infused website on the Internet, I’m putting together a list of my favorite bits and pieces of the pop culture year. Unlike all those other websites, I don’t have an entire staff of people to check in on everything. I only experienced the few things I experienced. For example, I don’t have a Nintendo Switch or a Playstation 4, so I missed out on some of the year’s best video games. On the other hand, I made a point to go see more movies in the theaters, so I have more to pick from. It’s been a weird year.
Join me after the jump for my favorite picks from pop culture! And feel free to share your own in the comments!
Like the coming of the tide and the dawning of the sun, another Star Wars movie is upon us! Unlike last year’s Rogue One spin-off, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is part of the main franchise! It’s Episode VIII! That’s pretty cool, right? That means this movie is super important and cool!
Movie Rating: 7/10 – Good.
I liked The Last Jedi, but I wasn’t blown away. I don’t consider it the best Star Wars movie since Empire Strikes Back. I think The Last Jedi was a fun and resounding adventure film, with plenty of cool Star Wars stuff, but nothing really beyond that. It’s the sort of movie you super enjoy while watching, but once you start thinking about it, there was a lot wrong with the movie. I know a lot of these complaints have been making the rounds all over the Internet, but now you can read my take on them!
So join me after the jump for my full review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as well as plenty of long-winded rants about the stuff that bugged me! And expect FULL SPOILERS for The Last Jedi.
