Reflecting on 2016 and Looking Towards 2017

No matter who you are, I think we can all agree that 2016 (at the very least) was eventful. First though, I want to reflect on the reading bit of it. This year I read less than half of the amount of books I read from 2015, but that’s okay. The Stats I only read […]

Is Pity for Gollum Misplaced?

Is Pity for Gollum Misplaced?

The beginning of The Return of the King is my least favorite part. It’s a little gross and I don’t particularly like watching Smeagol kill his friend. The thought crossed my mind though, why would the Ring have such an immediate and drastic impact on Gollum? The answer is probably rather simple and obvious, but I […]

Arrival: It’s Not What You Expect

We saw the trailer for Arrival. It looked promising although, if I was being completely honest, I wasn’t exactly certain what I was getting after watching it. I mean, it’s aliens right? Aliens usually entail the human race trying to kill them or them trying to kill the humans at one point or another. Yet, […]

A Great Start for the Fantastic Beasts Films

The long awaited moment has arrived. After the completion of the Harry Potter series, did we really dare hope for more? What am I saying? Of course we did but we actually got it: from Rowling herself. Her first screenplay, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, hit theatres this last November directed by David Yates himself. […]

Containment: Every Side Has A Story

A lot of new shows have been added to Netflix recently and among those is CW’s canceled show, Containment. If there’s a show to add to your binge watching list, it’s this one. It is enthralling and by the time I turned it off for the night, I had to remind myself that it wasn’t […]

11 Epic Moments from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2

I’m back with another Harry Potter blog post because why not? I mean, really? Do any of us get tired of it? Don’t answer that question unless the answer is , no. So I’m a huge fan of Harry Potter – unashamedly so – and because I have so many other books to read, I […]

Harry Potter Rewatch: An Introduction to the Magic

In my endeavor to incorporate movies in the blog, I thought that a Harry Potter rewatch was definitely in order. (Plus, I was in the mood to watch the story develop from the very beginning.) So here we are, at the beginning of everything. This is where the magic begins for thousands of people who […]

How I Chose My NaNoWriMo Novel

November is National Novel Writing Month. It’s NaNoWriMo time. For quite some time now (long before I started blogging), I’ve wanted to be an author. For years, I was dedicated to writing and did it quite regularly. I’ve been a little out of it the past year or two for a few different reasons, but the […]

Face It – McGonagall is The Boss

Lets face it, Minerva McGonagall is a boss and Maggie Smith’s performance for the role was simply fantastic. Both actress and character alike are refined and know how to deliver a line that puts anyone in their place. Professor McGonagall isn’t someone you want to mess with, not even some of the most talented or clever witches […]
