Deadpool

Mild spoilers. Nothing serious.

I have been looking forward to this film for a long time (though not as long as Ryan Reynolds has).

I love Deadpool. He was my introduction to comic books and he’s just awesome. His humour, creativity, mercenary skills, R-rating, general quirkiness, and deep seated self-hatred all come together to create the perfect Mary Sue for everyone to love. Any shortcomings are overlooked because he can, has, and will break the fourth wall, making him interesting on a whole other level. He’s like Batman but with less money and more personality.

The Big Short

Disclaimer: The movie I just saw had a lot of swearing in it, so you can rest assured this post will, too.

How To Make Winning Feel Bad – an alternate film title.

Well I’m scared to shit.

I’m twenty-one years old. I still haven’t completed my university degree. My subject of study is freakin’ Creative Writing. I know fuck-all about Wall Street. So keep that in mind when reading what I’m about to say about The Big Short.

Bridge of Spies

No Spoilers!

Ah, look. WordPress has just wished me a Happy Anniversary because I signed up with them one year ago. My counter is showing 1 hour to go before it’s been a year to the day this blog first went up. When I post this it’ll probably be up. But I’ll talk more about that another time.

I’m going to review Bridge of Spies tonight.

Crimson Peak

No spoilers until halfway. I'll let you know.
Do you like victorian drama? Do you like gothic themes? Do you like predictability? Do you think Tom Hiddleston is sexy? If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above, this film is for you!

Crimson Peak, directed by Guillermo del Toro, is freaky yet predictable–but you don’t mind at all watching it. Usually a predictable film will put me off, no matter how great everything else is. This wasn’t the best film I’d ever seen and it’s not going to get crazy praise from me, but I liked it when I didn’t think I would which is more than can be said for many films.

Macbeth / Out and About

Even though it’s technically Sunday, I will be writing as if it’s still yesterday.

Today, I have something to write about. I took no pictures, but I actually did something besides sit in the library and write (which feels like all I’m doing these days and unfortunately not much of that writing is for this blog).
