I watched Wonder Woman back in June and I loved it. I thought it was a great introduction to the Amazonian warrior and I thought it was a huge step in the right direction for the DC Universe. Wonder Woman was beautiful, smart, benevolent, powerful, everything that you would want Wonder Woman to symbolize and to be. The movie had its flaws but overall it was an enjoyable film.
So, Wonder Woman is now available to watch at home and I was excited to see it again. And I watched it hoping that it would be just as great as it was when I watched it in the movies. And for the most part, it was.
I absolutely loved the section of the movie when Diana was still at her home, Themyscira.
I mean who doesn’t love seeing a land where there are countless powerful women, of all colors, shapes, and sizes, in one place? It’s a girl’s dream to see something that powerful and epic and it involving only women. So the first portion of the film is hands down my favorite section of the movie but the movie still was rather enjoyable even after that.

This was another one of those movies I happened to miss this summer but I wasn’t too bummed about it, considering that the movie had received horrendous reviews. I figured that the movie couldn’t be too bad, especially with the fact that it starred Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise doesn’t make bad movies. In fact, I love all of his movies, except for the first Jack Reacher, but that’s a whole other story.
So I decided to watch The Mummy to see if it really was as bad as everyone said it was. And…at first…it was kind of interesting, storywise. Ahmanet was this Egyptian princess who was destined to become queen of Egypt but then her father had a son and so the little baby boy took her place as heir to the throne. So, to enact revenge, she sold her soul to the God of Death, Set, and became this evil death lady. She slit her father’s throat, killed her mother, and murdered their newborn son, and then to complete her mission, she needed to plunge this special dagger given to her by Set into the stomach of a man to bring the God of Death to life. But she was prevented from doing so, she was wrapped up like a mummy and buried alive in a casket, never to be found again.
So that was basically the prologue and then the movie started.

After last week’s riveting, suspenseful episode I was thrilled to watch this latest episode of Survivor. And then it started and the episode kept going on and on and nothing really exciting happened, except for Joe finding that idol early in the hour.
There weren’t any surprising twists, there weren’t any shocking alliances being broken, it was just a lot of dialogue and no action. And then when Simone was kicked off it wasn’t a surprise in the slightest. It was, overall, a very underwhelming episode and it’s kind of got me thinking, is this season of Survivor going to be yet another lackluster season? And if so, that’s a real shame.
Survivor is a great show but when it starts relying on older, more experienced and, truthfully, exciting players to be in each of its seasons that’s when the show is going to be in a little bit of trouble. The last season I watched that I really enjoyed that didn’t involve having players like Boston Rob or Ozzy or even the legendary Sandra had to have been, I think it was Season 32. Since then, besides Survivor: Game Changers, the seasons have just been…a little underwhelming. I’m hoping that this was just a boring episode because this is early in the season but if it keeps going at this rate this is going to be a long, boring season of Survivor.
Well, that’s my overview of Survivor this week. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was one of the movies I happened to miss this summer so when it was available to watch digitally I was so excited. This was one of the movies I actually wanted to see and I was a little disheartened to see that it got subpar reviews. People didn’t say it was bad but they didn’t say it was great either. So I watched it apprehensively. I figured it would be enjoyable, to a certain extent, because Disney doesn’t make absolutely terrible movies, but would it be able to stack up to the success of some its predecessors? And I’m glad to say I came from the movie with a nod and a smile on my face. It was good, it wasn’t great, but I did like certain aspects of the film. So, with that, let me start this review.

One of my favorite aspects of Star Wars are the locations. Whenever there’s a new planet I’m always excited to see what it’ll look like, such as the new planets in The Last Jedi, Crait and Cantonica. Throughout the Star Wars films, there have been many, many planets that I have found are absolutely incredible. So, on that note, here are my favorite planets.
Mustafar is one of the most original locations in Star Wars. The fact that it’s a moon that consists of only lava and volcanic rock makes this, undoubtedly, one of the coolest planets in Star Wars. And thanks to Rogue One, we now know that Darth Vader built his castle on the fiery world. That is a very awesome fact.

A lot of the great storylines in Star Wars revolves around family matters, from the whole father/son struggle between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker to now the conflicts between Kylo Ren, formerly Ben Solo, and his parents. And even though it is the mothers that bring these characters into the world they’re not really celebrated or utilized into the weaving of these fantastic stories as much as they should. So I figure it’s only fair to write a post celebrating these extraordinary women who have had a huge but usually overlooked impact on these Star Wars films.

I am pretty sure that there are going to be a lot of surprises in The Last Jedi, and one of the biggest, if not slightly devastating, shockers would be to find out that after all of these years Luke Skywalker turned bad. Not only would that be one of the most astonishing surprises in Star Wars history but that would just be terrible. Luke Skywalker was a galactic hero. He survived the seductive powers of the Emperor, he saved his father’s soul, and he was a full-blown Jedi Knight by the end of Return of the Jedi. So what could possibly turn the Jedi Master to the dark side? I have no idea but the closer it gets to The Last Jedi’s premiere the more apparent it’s becoming that Luke isn’t the same Luke he was in Episode VI. I’ve just recently seen a couple of new photos of Luke and I’m telling you, they’re kind of creepy. Here they are. Continue reading Has Luke Skywalker Secretly Gone to the Dark Side in The Last Jedi?
