Movie Review: 'Chip N Dale: Rescue Rangers' is Deeply Misguided
The underlying story of Disney’s Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers reboot is human trafficking. Before you freak out and tell me I’m overreacting, hear me out. The plot of the new Chip N’ Dale Rescue Rangers has the newly reunited chipmunk friends searching for their missing friend, Monterey Jack. Jack has been kidnapped by a nefarious gang, his face has been altered, and he’s been sold to an overseas animation company to star in knockoff cartoons against his will.
Book Review: "Of the Farm" by John Updike
There are a number of things that John Updike is known for but writing shorter fiction is normally not one of them. The Rabbit Series is one of America's most famous pieces of literature of the 20th century and the entire aspect of Updike's fiction and the changing notion of what it means to be 'American' is explored in depth and fantastically within. Recently, I have read Updike's book Licks of Love and I was really quite surprised to see that his shorter fiction is just as good as his longer stuff. John Updike is clearly a man of range and has a strange way of making something that does not seem like a story, a complete narrative. This is what I am getting at when I talk about Of the Farm.

My Review of "Days of Thunder"
Days of Thunder is a movie that came out back in 1990. I stars a whole slew of stars back when they were way younger. It's startling to see what some of them looked like when they were young. This is definitely a movie of its time so there are a few triggering scenes that may offend some viewers.
Great Comic Book Artists
Comics are of course a visual medium, and the artist has the difficult job of designing the characters, creating a cover that attracts reader's attention, and carrying the story page by page. Naturally some are better at it than others, but some artists are rightful legends and ground-breaking pioneers. You may know of some of them, but there are likely a few you don't.
Moon Knight is Nothing like Anything the MCU has Seen Before
Moon Knight, Marvel's latest TV show, stars Oscar Isaac who plays a man with Dissociative Identity Disorder who is also an avatar for Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon.

Bad Book Reviews
When I am not writing on here, I am reading. When I have finished reading, I write a review of what I've read and publish it. I do this for all books I read and I do it for ARCs through Reedsy Discovery and Book Sirens. I then share my reviews through Amazon, BookBub, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads and my own blog at scuffedgranny.com. From my blog, links to these reviews then subsequently get shared to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Tumblr.
