Watch Wednesday #27: Ant-Man and the Wasp Will Answer Civil War’s Cliffhanger

As of the release of Black Panther in the next few weeks, we will officially have eighteen Marvel films to enjoy.  Um, wow, that's a lot, especially considering 2018 still has two more Marvel movies after T'Challa's tale.  Not to mention what's coming in 2019! We're currently in Phase 3 of Marvel's cinematic universe, and with this year… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #27: Ant-Man and the Wasp Will Answer Civil War’s Cliffhanger

Tuesday Tunes #27: Ex-Boyfriends Beat Star Wars

Oh hey, did you hear?  Star Wars: The Last Jedi is one big giant flop in the Chinese market.  Marking Disney's biggest misfire in Chinese theatres since The Lone Ranger, all but 10-percent of cinema screens in China are pulling The Last Jedi leaving us to ask:  Why?  The answer may surprise you, but it directly relates to… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #27: Ex-Boyfriends Beat Star Wars

Freebie Friday #26: “Cooler than a pack of peppermints.”

You know how your kids get REALLY into a movie?  And you're like, not 100% feelin' it like they are?  Well, today's post is dedicated to that idea. This is for all those parents out there.

Thursday Threads #26: DC Super Hero Girls

I LIIIIIIVE.  Two weeks ago, my son brought home the flu from preschool and proceeded to attack me, then my twin girls--we have no clue how Brad miraculously withstood the germ infestation, but he did! It was a much-needed miracle because, man, I was so freaking sick.  I had a fever of 103° for three days and then… Continue reading Thursday Threads #26: DC Super Hero Girls

Watch Wednesday #26: I’m Not a Robot

One of the things about Korean television that I enjoy is the fact that they have no fear about going into a series and saying, "One season, one story.  Done."  In English-speaking television, this is rare enough to snag alternative titles like "miniseries" or "limited engagement".  For Korean TV, it's pretty much the norm.  They… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #26: I’m Not a Robot

Tuesday Tunes #26: Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card is Nostalgia Crack

OH MY GOSH.  I watched the first episode of the Cardcaptor Sakura continuation series Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card (which you can check out yourself via VRV or Crunchyroll streaming), and I just about died from how successfully Madhouse recreated the tone and joy of the original anime (you know, 18-years later). Of course, the nostalgia of it… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #26: Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card is Nostalgia Crack

Freebie Friday #25: “It only took a moment to be loved a whole life long.”

Ah, love.  TWUE LOVE.  What's better than a good love story?  I mean, come on, isn't that the whole reason the Hallmark Channel exists, because we just love stories of love so gosh darn much!  The tropes of romance are easily consumed, and thus are the perfect crutch for lazy storytelling. Pixar has a unique… Continue reading Freebie Friday #25: “It only took a moment to be loved a whole life long.”

Thursday Threads #25: Disneyland Honeymoon Couples T-Shirts

Seven years ago this July, I was a 20-year-old newly married youngin' on my week-long honeymoon in Anaheim, California.  Of course, five of those days were dedicated to my new husband's and my Disney fanaticism, fed quite nicely with Park Hopper Passes for Disneyland and California Adventure. Ever since we first vaguely discussed our marriage… Continue reading Thursday Threads #25: Disneyland Honeymoon Couples T-Shirts
