My Experience Binge-Watching ‘Harry Potter’

I don’t watch the Harry Potter movies often. In fact, I might see a Harry Potter movie every three to six months, and I usually only ever watch either Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban or Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. So, this time when I got the urge to watch a Harry Potter movie I decided to binge-watch the series starting with the Prisoner of Azkaban over the course of two days and I had a blast. I had so much fun in fact that I wanted to share with you all my experience watching each film and I hope you enjoy. 🙂

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

If you’ve read my post talking about my three favorite Harry Potter films you will know that this installment in the eight movie franchise is my favorite of them all. Whenever I get the chance to watch a Harry Potter movie this is the film I always run to because it’s so good. I mean, it starts with Harry Potter turning his terrible aunt into a human balloon! Lol. As Ron would say, “Brilliant.” 🙂

I also love that this movie introduced werewolves because that’s something you don’t normally see in fantasy films. It always used to creep me out when you could hear the werewolves in the Forbidden Forest but to see Professor Lupin become a werewolf is always one part terrifying/one part extraordinary.

And the ending with Harry zipping away on his new broomstick (undoubtedly given to him by his godfather, Sirius Black) is just magical every time I watch it. (*chill bumps*)

Here Are A Bunch of New ‘Star Wars’ Books To Look Forward To

I’ve only recently gotten into Star Wars books in the last year and it’s been like finding a jackpot of fictional material. In fact, Star Wars books have become my new favorite thing to read in the fictional side of things. So, imagine how I excited I became when I found out that a ton of new Star Wars books that would be arriving within the next year was announced at SDCC? I am ecstatic! So, to share with you all my excitement, here are some of the books that really caught my eye. Enjoy!

Star Wars: Thrawn Alliances

I haven’t gotten around to the Thrawn series yet but this book intrigues me simply because it has an awesome cover. I definitely have to catch up with his story before this book comes out.

‘Maleficent’ Is a Gorgeous but Boring Movie

I missed seeing Disney’s Maleficent four years ago and chose to watch Edge of Tomorrow instead. I’m glad I did. I finally got the chance to watch it yesterday and I can honestly say it was not what I was expecting, and I don’t mean that in a good way.

Angelina Jolie is the perfect actress to play the role of the anti-hero, Maleficent. She’s fierce and conniving, benevolent and caring, but she also looks the part immensely. I mean look at those cheekbones! Amazing. But she’s about all that was good about the film.

Maleficent is literally the story of Sleeping Beauty but this movie changes the narrative as we get to see the fairy tale told through Maleficent’s eyes. After being betrayed by the man Maleficent thought truly loved her she cursed his daughter to fall asleep on the night before her sixteenth birthday by pricking her finger on a spindle’s wheel. And the only way she could be woken was through true love’s kiss, which she believed didn’t exist, so the girl would sleep for eternity.

‘The Clone Wars’ Is Coming Back!!!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is one of my favorite cartoons of all time because it was such a brilliantly made animated series. It took the prequel era to the next level by telling thirty minute short stories that helped fill in a gap that had been previously untouched. The Clone Wars was however abruptly stopped a few years ago and just recently released a bunch of new, never before seen episodes on Netflix but it was pretty inevitable that the series was done for. That’s why when it was announced that there was going to be a panel focusing on The Clone Wars at SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con) I was very confused indeed. Wasn’t the series over? So why were they having a panel celebrating it’s ten year anniversary? Well, the series is actually returning for one final season that will appear on the Disney streaming service and I couldn’t be more excited. Here’s the trailer for it.

A Sneak Peek for ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Has Arrived from Comic-Con

It’s the first day of San Diego Comic-Con and that means news and teasers for your most anticipated movies and television shows will debut. Well, it looks like Godzilla: King of the Monsters has released a sneak peek of what to expect with this Godzilla sequel. Here it is.

While we don’t physically see Godzilla there is no doubt that this looks like it’ll be a slightly more frightening movie than its predecessor was. Hopefully the official teaser for the film will be just as riveting. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

My Review of ‘Murder on the Orient Express’

I’m a huge fan of action movies but every once in a while I like to dabble into other genres and see films of a different variety. So, a couple of days ago I decided to watch Murder on the Orient Express. It caught my attention last year mainly because Daisy Ridley (Rey from Star Wars) was in it and I finally decided to watch it. Since I’ve seen it I’m here to share with you my review of the movie. Enjoy!

The Story

Murder on the Orient Express plays out as expected. Renowned detective Poirot has been cracking cases around the world without rest and after solving one final mystery he decides to go on vacation. We are introduced to characters played by immediately recognizable big name actors and actresses and together he and these unknown individuals hop aboard the Orient Express. Little does he know that one of the passengers will end up being murdered. And so the mystery begins.

As he went through the train obtaining clues and trying to resolve who committed the crime it was fun to try to solve the mystery along with him. I picked three suspects and I kind of was right but I was mostly wrong on who actually did the murderous deed. *shrug*

Like all murder mystery movies there’s always deflections on who the actual killer is but by the end the answer to the conundrum was finally resolved and I was legitimately surprised.
