THIS IS "HOW I WORK" BLOGATHON

2 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.

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

18 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.

MUSINGS, RANTS, LOVES, LATEST INTERENT RAGE + LINKS

22 comments:
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.

IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME - 'JURASSIC WORLD' REVIEW [SPOILERS]

16 comments:
I loved the original 'Jurassic Park' film, so I didn't care what the reviews were I was going to see 'Jurassic World' and that was exactly what they were counting on--brand loyalty. *sigh. Unfortunately, you can add 'Jurassic World' to the list of mind numbing, entertaining, idiotic, blockbusters. That said, this movie was so much fun to watch! And perhaps that's enough. It's summertime and this is a popcorn summertime film. I got spoiled with 'Fury Road.' I'm beginning to think that a movie like 'Fury Road' is truly a rarity akin to 'Gravity'--big budget, beautiful, smart and action-filled. I guess I better get used to the idea that most big budget blockbusters will not compare.

8 DISASTER MOVIE CLICHES - SAN ANDREAS REVIEW [SPOILERS]

20 comments:
Thankfully I have a contact high from seeing 'Mad Max: Fury Road,' because 'San Andreas' is just your run of the mill Hollywood disaster flick.  'San Andreas' is not a bad film. It's just not particularly good one. It's in the range of "fair to middling." The film does have a few bright spots, but most of the movie gets bogged down in disaster movie cliches. Seeing 'San Andreas' reminds me just how fantastic and smart 'Fury Road' was. It was a rare treat for an action film. Since I can't review 'Fury Road' again, I guess I should actually start talking about 'San Andreas.' *Sigh.

WHO KILLED THE WORLD? - FURY ROAD REVIEW [SPOILERS]

18 comments:
Who killed the world? 
The Five [To Immortan Joe]

Directed by George Miller
Starring TOM HARDY, CHARLIZE THERON, and NICHOLAS HOULT

That is the question posed by the wives (sex slaves) of the main bad guy, Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). For an over the top action movie, the movie poses a lot of important questions, which is what the 'Mad Max' films are known for. Director George Miller's apocalyptic vision of the future isn't good. The world in question is a desert world of scarce resources, falling satellites, and dwindling oil and water supplies. In Miller's vision, if you strip away the civility of a properly functioning society people will revert to their most brutal animalistic selves. The strong exploit the weak. This is the world of 'Mad Max,' who himself was the victim of terrible personal tragedy. In the original 'Mad Max,' Mad Max's family was brutally killed by marauders.

DISSECTING THE NEW SUPERGIRL TRAILER

5 comments:
If you've read my blog then you know that I'm the first person to applaud a new superhero television, especially a new superhero film or tv show with a female lead. In fact, now that I think of it, I don't believe we've had a female-led superhero television show since 'Wonder Woman,' which debuted in the 1975. 1975 as in 40 years ago. Forty years. Seriously 40..., not 30, not 20, not 10, but 40. That's like two generations. Admittedly there was the short lived series called 'Birds of Prey' on the WB in 2002, but that lasted for like a nanosecond. And to be fair, shows like 'Buffy,' 'Xena,' 'Alias,' have certainly taken on superhero-like qualities, but 'Wonder Woman' was truly the last female-led superhero television series.

WHAT'S OLD IS NEW, 1 MORE BLACK WIDOW DISS, NEW SHOWS, CANCELLATIONS, SHORTS, + LINKS, OH MY

X-Files Returns
What's old is new again. It seems like network television has completely run out of ideas, so now they're cannibalizing themselves. Shows like 'The Odd Couple,' 'Full House,' 'Twin Peaks,' and 'Coach.' Admittedly, I'm giddy that the 'X-Files' is returning for a limited six episode run. The fans have been begging for another film or limited series for years, in order to wash the taste out of their mouths of the second 'X-Files' film, 'I Want to Believe.' David Duchovny looks like hell, but Gillian Anderson has been keeping busy with multiple television roles, including one of the best procedural dramas I've seen in a while, 'The Fall.'

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON REVIEW & THE "GIRL BOX"

10 comments:
Directed by JOSS WHEDON
Starring CHRIS EVANS, ROBERT DOWNEY, JR., CHRIS HEMSWORTH, 
MARK RUFFALO, JEREMY RENNER, ELIZABETH OLSEN, 
AARON TAYLOR-JOHNSON, and SCARLETT JOHANSSON

Hi friends. I'm a little rusty. I haven't written on my blog for a few months, so hopefully this review will make sense! I'm officially back in the blogosphere. I finished my classwork and other "things." Now I can focus on fun stuff! If you can imagine I hadn't been to the theater in a while, so 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' was the first film I had seen in a few months. Unfortunately, it was not worth the wait. I'm more of a DC Comics fan, but I really wanted to see this film, primarily for Elizabeth Olsen. She's awesome. She just is.
