I’m Finally Watching ‘Doctor Who’!

I’m a pop culture nerd. I have watched basically everything that has ever been famous in pop culture; from The Fast and the Furious franchise to the Transformers franchise, to nearly every superhero movie that’s ever been made, to even having watched several Star Trek movies and shows and having seen every Star Wars movie and nearly television show.

Pop culture is my thing and it’s fun enjoying so many different stories, worlds, and fandoms. But there was one franchise I had not tackled until yesterday, a franchise that I’ve always heard of but never knew what it was about; the Doctor Who franchise.

Since it’s available on HBO Max my sister and I decided to finally sit down and watch it and I was hooked practically instantly. I’m only four episodes into the first season and I’ve got to say, I’m quite invested.

I love now knowing why the doctor character is called Doctor Who. I love the time travel element (it’s like Quantum Leap on steroids.) And I love that there are aliens. In fact…I love knowing that the doctor is an alien. How cool is that?

All in all, I know I’m way behind and I’ve got twelve LONG seasons to catch up on but I’m determined to one day know the Doctor Who franchise just like I know Marvel and Star Wars. And who knows. I might even become a diehard fan by the end of this thing.

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

My Review of ‘The Little Things’

I love a good murder mystery! I’m talking Se7en, Prisoners, and The Silence of the Lambs. Those are the best ones I’ve seen and I’ve seen some other good mystery movies along the way.

This week I decided to watch The Little Things, a new murder mystery starring Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto. I almost skipped watching this movie but when Leto earned a Golden Globe nomination for the film I thought, heck, I might as well check it out.

So I watched it yesterday with my sister and oh my goodness, it was underwhelming.

For the first hour it’s just mindless exposition filled with cop lingo that left me pulling at my face with frustration. Half of what they were talking about I couldn’t understand and the other half, I just didn’t care about.

When Leto finally showed up, he kind of brought a bit of pizzazz to the movie but overall, the ending left me like, “WHAT?!” It just was annoying and nonsensical and just…frustrating.

The only reason why I made it as long as I did was because I was watching the film believing that Denzel Washington’s character was the actual killer.

SPOILERS AHEAD! It isn’t. In fact…we never find out who actually is killing all of the people. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a bit of a shocking ending but because the writer was trying so hard to tell a story that’s different they didn’t think to actually write a movie that was entertaining.

70 out of 100 and 2/5 stars
