Certified nerd, super geek and very proud fangirl.
Elemental is a movie that I have been looking forward to for a while. I thought the trailer looked really cute and honestly Pixar has yet to let me down. I know there was a lot of talk about the animation style when it was first released but I think it really fits the story that the movie is trying to tell.
Haunting of Hill House
Okay so we know that I love scary movies and I watch a lot of them. But there has been this trend, specifically on Netflix lately of scary TV shows. None of which I have ever really gotten into. I just never sat down long enough to get through one of them. I would argue that this trend started with the release of the Haunting of Hill House. I remember living with girls at the time that absolutely loved it and I had only seen glimpses but never the whole show. Well we recently started watching it and I have to say I understand the fixation.
Okay so last week in Gen V we dealt with our main characters being mind wiped and not knowing what was going on. They also just found out that Cate is the one behind their memory lapses. Andre is very hurt (as he should be) and Cate seems to have switched sides so that she stands with her friends now.
Ranking the Fast and Furious Movies
We are now at 10 Fast and Furious movies and now that we have seen all of them, let's make a list. I am ranking these movies from worst to best. Now a smart person would expect these to just countdown but there are some seemingly random placements here. Because let’s be honest there is absolutely no consistency, rhyme or reason to these movies whatsoever.
Fast and Furious
I feel like I’ve been watching these movies for 10 years trying to get to the first one. So we are about to rapid fire these last four. Keeping the chronology straight, or trying to, has been some batshit insane shit to try and do because absolutely nothing about these movies makes sense.
Most Bat-Shit Fast and Furious Moments
In my covering every Fast and Furious movie we have of course learned that they abandoned physics long ago. The Fast and Furious movies seem to operate more like comic books than action movies, with very similar rules to its characters. And since so many of its characters have done some truly superhuman things I think that it's time we talk about it. These movies have truly done some insane things so I thought I would list out the top most insane things that these films have ever done.
Netflix has exploded with the amount of reality content that they have been cranking out and none of it is good. However a lot of it is super messy and isn’t that what we all want from our reality tv? Reality takes no brain cells to consume or produce and that is why there is so much of it. Netflix and other streaming services can produce reality tv for basically nothing and they always find people who need just the most therapy making the season of whatever it is very entertaining for those of us that have done the therapy. So here we go, the worst (but best) reality tv shows from Netflix.
Best Comedy Specials
I am a huge fan of stand up comedy. I think it is the best way to disconnect and turn off my analytical brain. Even if I try to watch a tv show or movie for fun I end up breaking it down and analyzing it. With stand up comedy (as that is definitely not my area of writing) there is nothing for me to analyze. That said I have seen most of the specials on Netflix as that seems to be the peak of accomplishment for comedians. And I am here with the definitive list of funniest specials on Netflix.
Just like everyone else I have watched and rewatched Grey’s anatomy countless times. Everyone has their favorite characters and opinions on the show and its plot points. And though there are many things that could focus on when talking about Grey’s Anatomy I thought I would go with my own personal; Most infuriating moments. These aren’t up for debate ya’ll, I’m not taking comments these are just the most irritating things that happened on this show and we are going to go in order, starting with season 1.
The Meg 2
I vaguely remember seeing The Meg at a drive in theater during shark week. And though I personally am very confused by the fascination with shark movies I think The Meg is a delightful kind of bad. So when I found out that The Meg was getting a sequel I was very excited. You know a movie is going to be plotless when it stars Jason Stathem. So here we go with my thoughts on The Meg 2: The Trench.
We left off episode 4 with Emma getting all big trying to subdue Sam at the doctors house. And there is this really hard cut and our characters don’t seem to remember anything from the night and day before. So we are missing big giant chunks of time from a very intense moment. And though it seems like it was just a giant party there seems to be more going on.
Dancing With The Stars
Okay so I had never seen Dancing With The Stars before this season. When I started ballroom dancing it was something that I was vaguely aware of but really had no desire to watch. Students bring in videos all time of dances from that show that bear no resemblance to actual dancing. They have fun tricks and fancy set pieces but for the most part Dancing With The Stars is not dancing. But the existence of Alyson Hannigan on the show this season has broken me down and we are watching, so here are my very qualified thoughts. Please remember this is coming from an internationally certified ballroom dance instructor who is also a rhythm champion and a smooth and standard finalist.
