Star Wars: The Force Awakens Novelization

Ever since The Force Awakens hit theaters a few weeks ago, theories have been flying about the new trilogy. People are lining up to see the film twice, three, or even four times looking for hints, Reddit and Tumblr threads grow by the day, and Youtube channel theories abound. Want a source of further insight that’s 100% canon? Check out the novelization of Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Alan Dean Foster. If you’ve seen the film, read the novel, and/or aren’t afraid of spoilers, let’s talk about some of the biggest reveals the novel offers that we didn’t see on screen.

CBS’ Supergirl Fails to Impress (Spoiler-Free Review)

Movies/Shows

CBS Supergirl

Supergirl does not make a good first, second, or third impression. Three episodes in to season one, I can say I’m ready to tune out for the remainder of the season. CBS’ Supergirl is like Smallville meets Men in Black mixed with The Devil Wears Prada but with all the bad acting and corniness of the 1970’s Wonder Woman live action show. Allow me to explain.

Midweek Movie Review: The Giver (2014)

Unknown

After reading The Giver Quartet, I decided to watch the 2014 film adaptation. The movie has received mixed reviews and I agree with the average rating of 6.5/10 (according to Amazon) (3.5/5 on Rotten Tomatoes). It’s a middle-of-the-road score for a movie that is neither horrible, nor especially impressive or memorable.

Gotham season one review

The following review contains spoilers for Fox’s Gotham Season One. 

Fox’s Gotham wrapped up it’s first season last week with the airing of episode 22 “All Happy Families Are Alike.” The season has showcased some of the incredible talent of the show’s cast, particularly among the younger actors. While many episodes were solid and certain scenes outstanding, there are some lackluster and underwhelming elements of the first season. Let’s take a closer look at all Gotham has to offer so far.

Tangled-2010

Last night I watched the latest DVD I picked up from the library which was Disney’s Tangled. For years my friends have told me to watch this film, but as I wasn’t too impressed with Frozen I felt no rush.

While musicals are not really my thing, I really liked Tangled. This humorous twist on the classic fairy tale of Rapunzel is a cute film that provides good, clean fun.  

Agent Carter Episode 3 is an underwhelming follow-up to a promising premiere

Agent Carter 3 review

The following review contains spoilers for Agent Carter episodes 1-3. 

After last week’s awesome start to the series, episode three, titled “Time and Tide,” felt at parts like a waste of time. It was still an episode worth watching, but was very underwhelming compared to such a promising premiere.
