My Netflix Addiction: 13 Reasons (Season 2)

Netflix is bring back all my favorites.

I hadn’t realized that I’ve been waiting for this to come back but it definitely is here with a season 2. I’ve made my speculations clear last year, Season 2 could always be 13 Reasons Tyler shoots up the school, 13 Reasons Bryce Walker became a rapist, or 13 Reasons Jessica ends up a teen mom, instead (to the credit of the writers) Season 2 of 139419853d73e67dbfaf6130e629298341-12012781997.jpg Reasons  was all about the bullying case Hannah’s mom started at the end of Season 1.

In season 2 we learn more about Hannah than we originally expected. As the novel 13 Reasons wasn’t a series I wasn’t really sure what to expect. A TV show dealing specifically with a toxic culture of bullying has several seasons in it waiting to be written. The writers behind this show are brilliant.

This season delves deeper into the lives of our 13 main characters while they prepare to testify in the trial of the year. As a mysterious assailant harasses those intended to testify for the prosecution, polaroids begin fb9589db74c7b808ee9ecd6a8d93480499788819.jpgappearing hinting at a deeper conspiracy no one was ready for.

Each of our characters find themselves forced to deal with their truths, a word that gets thrown around a lot considering no one really has the whole story. Klay may be having a psychotic break but Justin definitely has a bigger issue. Like the drug dealing stalker who’s after him and another monkey that seems to love jumping on his back.

Cliche’s aside there is quite a bit about the show that you can guess. Not sure what I mean re-read the intro paragraph. The end of this Season left Justin asking, “What do We do now?” and honestly after having watched it myself… I gotta say, I don’t know. But I definitely didn’t see that coming!

My Netflix Addiction: Dear White People (Season 2)

efaa7a7f98469f48bdf49dab159732cb988198588.jpg

Are you guys ready for another semester at Winchester? 

By now we’ve all  marathon watched Season 2 of Dear White People and I’m thrilled… so we can all finally chat about the after math of the not-so-peaceful, peaceful protests. Season Two covers secret societies, the blending of dorms and even a mystery — Who burned down Davis Hall.

Despite that I spent most of season Two trying for the life of me to remember who in the hell Thain was, only to rewatch season one and remember (R.I.P.) Like most college shows we dealt with serious topics.

To abort or not abort my baby,  the discovery that the world doesn’t revolve around you and a student body coup. There was lots of sex this season and I had to ask myself, “Am I gonna vote for Troy?”

The emergence of a Black Illuminati, the recovery and culprits behind the disappearance of Sorbet and a serious death lets you know Season 3 is officially taking way too long to be written I need to know MORE!

DeadPool 2: The F is for Family!

20180521_1023382043193279.jpg

Shortly after half the Marvel Universe disappeared with a snap of Thanos’s fingers, DeadPool returned to remind you that things could only get better from here. This time around my IMAX movie tickets were $4 courtesy of T-Mobile Tuesdays. 9616204ed86abea527355de6ede48bc31477448474.jpg

As expected the movie was phenomenal, all of the things a DeadPool movie should be, action-packed, snarky and entertaing af! They did not disappoint, and even found time to add some emotion into the movie.

As Wade explains at the beginning of the movie it may be OK to bring your kids, (if your kid is at least 12 years old) because the underlying theme of the movie is about family maybe not in the traditional bc8ba9efcf245f9df87b3e744ecb743a2052010457.jpgsense but that’s always been part of the franchises charm.

Big news of Josh Brolin made many drool, (all I kept thinking of is how he is winning 2018) and his rendition as Cable was better than I thought it could be (apparently he’s the son of Cyclops and the cloned Jean Grey). Ultimately the bad guy in the story is the very person they are trying to protect.

This movie was also hilarious! Just what I needed to wash the taste of Black Panther  turning to dust from my memory. Deadpool is as snarky as always and without spoiling too much Domino proves that Luck is most certainly a superpower.

 

Did you get your ticket to DeadPool 2?

Now In Theatres – Avengers:Infinity War

Thursday Night I was perfectly seated center screen to watch Marvel’s Avengers:Infinity War. We went to Rave Cinema at 40th & Walnut St. where I snagged a collector’s edition cup with my beverage. Ordering my tickets from Fandango got me 1 of 5 free posters  img_20180427_134235_024779716803.jpgfrom the movie.Officially in Theaters April 27, opening night of course was Thursday, (Apr 26) and I was fortunate enough to get tickets before they were sold out. 

I absolutely loved the film, the graphics and special effects were amazing. I lost my mind throughout the fight scenes and everything looked very well put together. Much of what I’ve come to expect from Marvel movies.

Once again the fate of the world rests on the shoulders of people who i’m sure at this point would’ve loved to stay home in bed that day, but it seems that they may not succeed this time around. The Marvel Universe introduces one of the biggest bad guys they’ve come up against yet in Thanos, and Josh 65e6eddb91bf03a669d53240b200e1941378490278.jpgBrolin plays the role perfectly.

With such an amazing star-studded cast of course the acting was great. The relationship between Bruce Banner and The Hulk was one of the more comical situations and Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland etched their ways into my memory. It’s the moment Marvel Fans of all ages have been waiting for; if you’re familiar with the comics, the all-out life & death battle between all our heroes and Thanos.

A real race to retrieve or destroy the Infinity stones in order to prevent Thanos from acquiring them all wiping out half the universe. Thanos’s reasons are allegedly to save lives. The Avengers struggle to the very last seconds to win the conflict but there’s a part two so naturally things don’t go as planned.  

Coming Soon! Fahrenheit 451

One of my favorite novels by Ray Bradbury, and featuring my On – Screen husband (he don’t know it yet, but we’ve been dating since Creed and made it official after Black Panther) Fahrenheit 451 is coming to HBO! Check out the trailer!

#ShowsWeLove:Passions

Passions Titlecard 1

Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve watched soaps?

Not a lot of them and in fact there has only been one soap in particular that I ever watched consistently.

Passions Cast 1999Passions however was the one show I obsessed over as a teenager. It took the concept of soap operas added some witchcraft and had me hooked.

Interestingly enough, I found it on YouTube and discovered a Passions Couplesfew things about the show and myself…

For One, I didn’t watch nearly as much of the show as I thought I had. Looking back on it all I’m not even sure how I convinced myself I’d watched most of it since the show originally aired in 1999 well before I would’ve sat down to watch it.

In fact I didn’t actually start watching until late in 2004 when a broken foot had me couch-ridden for a few weeks.

Passions Full Cast 2Since starting the show from the beginning a month ago, I manged to make it to episode 205 of the 2,331 episode series. I started for the Theresa/Ethan, Chad/Whitney story-lines but suffer through the terrible writing for the shenanigans of Tabitha and Timmy and the chance to see the exact day the characters I recognized came into the cast.

The show follows the lives and loves of the Lopez-Fitzgerald’s, Crane’s, Russell’s and Bennett’s; four prominent families in the lush New Passions Full CastEngland town of Harmony. The show is very much blue collar vs white collar with your standard mix of lust, drama and intrigue.

One of the first things I noticed is that I had no idea who most of the cast was. Apparently the cast I grew to love and root for are the replacements for the originals. The Russell’s remained in tact except for Simone who went through three alterations before the show ended.

Theresa, Luis and Pilar were there from the beginning but the Ethan I knew hadn’t taken over the role until 2002. Each episode is around 30 mins long or so, and has been playing consecutively in the background of my life.

#ShowsWeLove: Charmed Reboot

picture quotes15209828703931984200158..jpg

I am the sun,

I am the air,

I am human and I need to be loved,

Just like everybody else….does.

I was obsessed with the Halliwell sisters as a kid. Originally airing in 1998, Charmed, was a fantasy-drama starring Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano. I am a huge Alyssa Milano fan and a show involving her and magic was exactly what I needed.

33caff85ddf9519fb7beb93c621d69781131553594.jpg

The show ran for eight years finally ending in 2006 after several battles against darkness and once each of the sisters was married with children. I was crushed to see the show end, but happy they buttoned it up so nicely.

Possible talks of a reboot, sent images of Wyatt and Chris

returning with children of their own, or perhaps even Phoebe and her children (as she was the only one to have a trio of girls) swirling into focus. Though as the CW began finalizing details about the shows reincarnation, all hopes I’ve had of seeing the Halliwell bloodline continue have been dashed.

Instead the headlines have been checkered with news of a new feminist twist, the Halliwell name being converted and the cast getting a new Hispanic twist. I was afraid that what we’d get was a watered down version of the original we loved. But the CW promised:

“This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters – Macy (Mantock), Mel (Diaz) and Madison (Jeffery) — in a college town who, after the tragic death of their mother, are stunned to discover they are witches. Soon this powerful threesome must stand together to fight the everyday and supernatural battles that all modern witches must face: from vanquishing powerful demons to toppling the patriarchy.”

No offense to the hardworking staff on this show but with the exception of adding a lesbian to the trio the concept seems very similar to the original Charmed. Madeleine

Mantock, Melonie Diaz and Sarah Jeffery have been cast as the new versions of the Halliwell sisters though their last name will no longer be Halliwell.

This will be the first television inception of Charmed since the show ended in 2006, but the series had been a comic book following it’s shows end which brought back Prue and

0a81a7ab947f92339a11936ada942db6107701373.jpg

continued on the Halliwell bloodline. That series also ended in 2012 leaving a new breed of diehard Charmed fans.

Echoes of Prue, Phoebe and Piper are clearly visible in the recreations of the new sisters. The eldest sister, Macy, a veritable Prue clone is described as “practical, driven, and brilliant geneticist.” Also like Prue, her world is most affected by their witchy secret. Mel, the middle sister who also happens to be an outspoken activist and lesbian is very different than Piper (Like a Piper/Paige mix) and finally The youngest sister, Madison, played by Sarah Jeffery described as a “bubbly college freshman” who’s witch business occasionally muddles her sorority girl aspirations.

I’m not completely against it, but i’m a little worried that they’re going to ruin a classic. Hopefully, the show’s move to the CW as well as new writer’s will add to the franchise instead of staining it.
