THIS IS HOW "THEY" WORK BLOGATHON

10 comments:
On June 29th I launched my very first blogathon based on Lifehacker's "This is How I Work" and "What's in My Bag" series.' Most blogathons I've participated in have been about movies or television. So for my first blogathon I didn't want another top 10 list. Instead I wanted to get the inside scoop on my fellow bloggers themselves and how they work. The results have been wonderful.

DREAM VACATION BLOGATHON - VACATIONING IN 'FANTASIA,' THE MATRIX, AND VATICAN CITY Y'ALL

14 comments:
This is my entry for Katy's Dream Vacation Blogfest. The blogfest is ongoing so if you want to be a part of it, visit Katy and let her know. "If you could travel to any place in the film universe with any of your favorite characters or love-to-hate villains, what kind of a vacation would you take? Post your choice(s) of a destination(s), and at least three characters who would tag along." I have to say this has been my favorite blogfest in a long time because it allowed me to be incredibly imaginative!

SDCC DAY 3 FROM HOME - FINALLY! BATMAN V. SUPERMAN TRAILER...FEATURING WONDER WOMAN

14 comments:
#SDCC Day 3 has brought some fantastic things...namely the 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' trailer, which briefly features Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). This is the first time I've seen Wonder Woman in a trailer for a feature length film, so please forgive my fangirling. I wish there was more of WW. Alas, the film is 'Batman v. Superman,' so there are plenty of cheesy 'Superman' scenes in this trailer, but it's Zack Synder...yeah...I'm not a fan of his. Then there is Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Seriously, who thought that was a good idea? Overall, I'm not impressed with the trailer, but I am excited to see WW. To top it off, Zack Synder arrived at SDCC in the batmobile. Some people may think that's cool, but I think it borders on "douchey."

ARE SUPERHERO FILMS "MORE" SEXIST,? STAR WARS MASHUP, THOR'S JAMIE ALEXANDER IN 'BLINDSPOT,' COSPLAY, + LINKS

Cara Delevingne as the Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
'SUICIDE SQUAD,' 2016, Warner Brothers
I'm sure most people have heard of the 'Suicide Squad,' which will feature a plethora of DC Comics characters. Yay! As a comic book reader and an avid fan of superhero films, the latest comment by a star of the upcoming 'Suicide Squad' struck my interest. Model turned actress Cara Delevingne will be playing the Enchantress and has recently been quoted as having said that,
"three girls in [Suicide Squad]...have the best roles...but generally...superhero films are totally sexist. Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis. No one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute."

TERMINATOR GENISYS REVIEW - "PROTECT MY SARAH"

24 comments:
Admittedly, I pre-judged this film when I saw the promotional photos last year. The promotional photos were so over the top and crazy. And perhaps that's the problem with this film--unrealistic expectations. Summertime is when hollywood feeds us dumb popcorn movie crap. Why would I ever expect anything different?

The original 'Terminator' was low budget, gritty, sleek, and violent. I believe it had a "R" rating, as have the subsequent two films (excluding 'Terminator: Salvation'). Unfortunately, 'Terminator: Genisys' has been rated PG-13 for the ultimate cash grab. The PG-13 rating means that 'Terminator: Genisys' is watered down in every way. I don't particularly like violent or sexually exploitative films, however, I do think that some films should be marketed to adults. Now be prepared...because I'm going to make my fifth or sixth 'Mad Max: Fury Road' reference now. 'Fury Road' was neither uber violent, nor were there any sex scenes, however, the movie was clearly not for the kiddos and the "R" rating reflected that.

THIS IS "HOW I WORK" BLOGATHON

18 comments:
I occasionally receive emails from readers who want to know what programs I'm using or they're curious about how I work. So I have taken inspiration from the "How I Work" and "What's in My Bag" series' over a LifeHacker.com. I know that my blogger peeps post a lot about movies, television, and many other pop culture phenoms, but I would love more insight as to how my fellow bloggers work! What makes you tick, what programs and apps do you use, etc?

This is my first blogathon. I have never ever done this before! It's a little non-traditional in the sense that it is not focused on entertainment per se, but on the bloggers themselves. This blogathon is open to any and all types of bloggers. Please answer as few or as many of  the following questions as you see fit. If you'd like, please post a photo that you feel fits "YOU" and what you do. Photo is optional. Deadline is Tuesday, July 20th. Please sign up through the linky list after the "Read More" jump below. Thanks. Email me or tweet me when your entry is ready. Thanks!

X-FILES SNEAK PEEK, "FANNIBAL" HOPE, CRAPPY TRAILERS, + ANTMAN DOUBTS

12 comments:
I am rewatching the 'X-Files' on Netflix in preparation for the'X-Files' (albeit brief) return in January. Admittedly I'm skipping the episodes I didn't like, which thankfully are few and far between. It really takes me back to my young teen and early college years. Nine years of television was a really long time. Perhaps it's the nostalgia that I'm holding on to. I don't know, but I'm obsessed with all things 'X-Files' right now. Check out EW's site for more set photos.

TO DELETE OR NOT TO DELETE,? KILLJOYS THE NEXT FIREFLY,? THOUGHTS ON THE ALL-FEMALE GHOSTBUSTERS,? TOO MUCH JURASSIC CRAP + MORE

20 comments:
I was recently inspired to clean up my blog and delete old posts after reading articles over at Nose Graze and Elembee. I was always one of those people in the camp of "NEVER" deleting old posts. I wanted other bloggers to see my blogging evolution over the years, no matter how embarrassing. However, their articles made me curious. My blog was originally a place I posted random rants, and my love of film. When I started reviewing all of my old work I quickly realized that my early work was not very good. In fact I sucked. Some of my earliest posts were painful to read because not only were some posts poorly written, but they were short, with ill-fitting graphics.

Furiosa (from the brilliant 'Mad Max: Fury Road' is getting her own comic book prequel by Vertigo Comics, written by George Miller...and we thank him. You can see the preview of Furiosa Edition 1 here. Max and Immortan Joe editions will be released soon. The comic will give us some of Furiosa's backstory, which could have been a movie in of itself.
