I love Game of Thrones. There are many things I could do without within the show and even the books. I do not like watching sex and nudity. I do spend a good amount of time looking away from the screen. I am also not a huge fan of gore. But I keep watching GoT... Continue Reading →
This is not a movie for everyone, as much as I wish everyone would watch it. It is a MASTERPIECE of cinema as well as humanity.
I actually had a pretty heavy post written out. Then I remembered it was my birthday. And since that only comes once a year, why not throw out a River Tam quote? If you haven't watched Firefly, you really need to. And if you tell me you saw Serenity and thought it was weird so... Continue Reading →

Saturday Sass! Anyone else feel it was a bit rich that a farm boy from Tatooine can tell anyone that they are from nowhere?
QotD: Force Friday Mixed with a little bit of Chirrut and Baze Character Analysis. What really made Rogue One was the characters. I am ALL about the characters. A storyline can be terrible, but if the characters interest me I will see it over and over, and buy the movie. Thankfully, Rogue One is close to... Continue Reading →
