Kong: Skull Island. So much monsters fighting. In a monster movie! Go figure. High quality fight scenes, too. I absolutely mean this as a good thing. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
I got my flu shot on Friday, so I gave myself Saturday off and had a nice knit and Netflix binge. But I watched North and South, which I figure since I write romantic type stories, should sort of count as work. I mean, I really do love a good, scowly hero in a romance. And… Continue reading Mr. Relevant to my Interests
Why five? Because I was going to post this on Friday, so it was supposed to be a "Five on Friday" kind of thing. Only I didn't, and it's Tuesday, and Two on Tuesday is too few (say that five times fast), and Ten on Tuesday is too many. So five it is. #1. DFW… Continue reading 5 Field Trips
*Bad science happens* Me: I don't think that can happen. Mom: The ship's so big it has its own gravity. They said so. Me: That doesn't change physics because Jeff Goldblum said it. Mom: *pout* Why do you have to spoil everything with your "science."
Mom, as everything blows up: DON'T LOSE LUKE'S LIGHTSABER. Me: Jeez, Mom. Priorities. Mom: If that lady with the glasses kept it in a box all this time, it must be important. Does she die? I really like her. Get on the Internet and find out.
I am a total geek for maritime history. I'm a total geek about a lot of things, but my love of all things Tall Ship related goes under the radar because it hasn't come up in a book yet (which is about to change). There's actually a long seafaring tradition on both sides of my… Continue reading Thor vs. the White Whale (Movie Monday: seafaring edition)
These three recent movies are part of my catch up with 2015 plan. One I saw in the (Big! 3D! IMAX!) theater, one I rented, and one I streamed on Netflix. (It's pretty easy to tell which was which.)
IF I STAY has been on my list to watch ever since it came out on video (it's on Netflix right now) but I knew that was going to need the right mood and moment. Though I have not (to my shame) read the extremely well reviewed book by Gayle Foreman, I knew what I was… Continue reading All. The. Feels. — IF I STAY on Movie Monday
I love when the premium channels like HBO and Showtime run free preview weekends, because it reassures me that I'm not missing much not subscribing to them. Even if it does mean I have to wait until the DVDs come out to catch up on Game of Thrones. Or read the series of books full of spoilers that… Continue reading A post about women science fiction writers… eventually.
So. I finally saw Frozen. Now I know what all the fuss was about. My God, what a great movie. It had all the things. Elsa is so badass (this is my favorite word lately) and she just broke my heart, and then there was that song. So many feels. It was pretty much the exact same… Continue reading Frozen Things
