Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing the Marvel Avengers Book Tag!

Avengers-panel1a-137434.jpg

I didn’t create this tag and I don’t know who did but I love Marvel and Superheroes and books so I wanted to do this.


Iron Man

2cbb04e7ef9266e1e57a9b0e75bc555f.jpg

Your Favorite First Book

I love Iron Man but I watched the movies in the wrong order. My parents showed the first movie to my sisters and then they showed all three of us the second one and then we all went in saw the third one and I’d saw all the other Avengers movies. I finally watched it pretty recently and I did like it. First books in series aren’t always going to be the first because they are opening up the universe and the new world we are about to explore so they take time but their are some good ones. I’m going to pick Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.

546b72c81f28be9e4a4565b890ccc4b2

This book is just great!! I loved this book so much more than City of Bones and Clockwork Angel. I have a review on how I feel about it here. Lord of Shadow is about to come out as I’m writing and it’s probably already out when this post comes into the world! I’m so excited!! Another good first book is Alice in Zombieland. Damn that was the best one in the series.


Captain America

tumblr_n0oxpj88rS1raoayro1_1280.jpg

A Book that takes place in a different time

Captain America is my favorite. I love him so much! Chris Evans is just so gorgeous and I love him as the role of Steve Rogers. I don’t read a lot of books that take place in a different time period. I don’t know why, I don’t know why I just don’t find a lot of them or know of any of them so it’s not something that I read a lot of right next to science fiction. I have read Outlander, the Infernal Devices, and technically Harry Potter takes place in a different time. I think I’m going to pick Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson.

51zqk1y72TL

This book if you couldn’t guess is about the yellow fever and it follows a girl named Mattie and her life during the time of this and how she deals with it. It’s a really great book and I love it and I love Laurie Halse Anderson, her books are like damn! I would recommend this book to everyone because it’s so good.


Thor

avengers_2_affiche_08-640x933.jpg

A book character that you like more after they were casted

I love Thor and I love Chris Hemsworth. I didn’t really want to see this movie at first but then my family was like it’s so good and I’ve come to adore Thor and all the characters and Loki and these movies! Whose excited about Thor: Ragnarok? I AM!!! It took me awhile for me to decide what to pick for this question but I finally realized that my answer is Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy.

Draco Malfoy is terrible character well the choices he makes are terrible. He is a good boy that was forced into a life that he didn’t want. Now if I had read the books first then he would have just thought he was a spoiled brat but watching Tom Felton bring this character to the screen helped me understand what he was going through this and he made me love him more.


Hawkeye

hawkeye.jpg

A book that you love but isn’t really a popular read for others

I love Hawkeye. I was so scared that he was going to die in Age of Ultron because they introduce as to his family and when his wife was like be safe and I was shit he is going to die but he didn’t! I’m going to pick to Sherlock inspire stories that I love and I couldn’t decide which one I should do so I’m going Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty and the Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason!

They are so amazing and so wonderful and I love them so much. I have review for both Lock and Mori books here and here and I have reviews for Stoker and Holmes here and here. If you haven’t read these books yet then go read them because they are so amazing and wonderful and I need the final books right now because I need to know what happens!!


Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch

A Book with a Sibling Duo

Okay so is Quicksilver coming back for Infinity Wars because I kept seeing stuff saying that he still is alive and is returning? Can someone just clear this up for me? Thanks. I don’t know who else there is to pick besides Fred and George from Harry Potter.

fred and george.jpg

I love them so much and they are just so amazing and the death in Deathly Hallows breaks my heart and AHHHHHHHHH!


Loki

Loki_textless.jpg

A villain that you love and you can’t help but be attracted to

I love Loki. I love him so much. I’m so excited Thor 3 because I know what the title means and the trailers look great. I’m having a hard time picking this one because I can’t be a attracted to a lot of villains because they do such horrible things. I’m gonna go with Hideo from Warcross by Marie Lu.

warcross

I don’t know if he counts as villain but his motivation at the end of Warcross can be called villainy. I don’t know. I don’t feel attracted to any book villains right now. Because like I said before so many villains do terrible things and I stop loving them after that. Like Tate from American Horror Story, everyone loves him but he’s done such terrible things that I don’t like him.


Antman

Ant-Man_Poster_Cropped.png

A Book I’ve been meaning to read

Like every book in the world I feel like. I do have answer for this and it’s pretty shameful and the books I’ve been meaning to read are Six of Crows and Shadows and Bone! I’m sorry! I’ve been meaning to read them and every time I get them I just start reading them and then I give up on them. I plan on reading them soon but I’ve been saying that for awhile now.


The Hulk

avengers___age_of_ultron___hulk_poster_by_zedkate-d7c79b4.jpg

A Book you can’t talk about without getting angry

*COUGHS LOUDLY

983940_orig

DISHONORABLE MENTION: 13 REASONS WHY! I hate these books so much and I get so mad every time I talk about them. Same for 13 Reasons Why.


Black Widow

black widow.jpg

A Side Character that You wished had their own Book

I mean I wish I got a whole series about Harry Potter’s parent when they were at Hogwarts but everyone wants that so. How about Dorian? Because Chaol got a whole book about him so why I get he get one? I love Dorian he’s my favorite! I guess so many people wouldn’t like that because I feel like everyone loves Chaol and I don’t really like him that much.

This was worth the wait! | Spiderman: Homecoming review

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about Spiderman: Homecoming which was directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker!

WARNING SPOILERS

img_3386

Rating: -A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line

Who else was looking forward for this movie? Because I’ve have been looking forward for a new spiderman movie since Tom Holland appeared in Civil War. I made post talking about everything I was looking forward to and was scared about this film which you can read here and I even put this on things I’m looking forward to this year which you can read here. I was excited for this film but I had a right to be scared because let’s look at the past couple spiderman movies. I made plans with my best friend and we went to the six o’clock showing together and like no one was there which surprised me. Like even the ticket lady was like it, make sure to come early because it’s been a popular choice today.

I can now say that this film was amazing and I loved it! I loved Tom Holland as Peter Parker and I love Ned and I loved Zendaya who had a smaller part then I thought. This film was a Spiderman film. It makes you laugh, you get emotional, and it is so great! Is it my favorite Spiderman movie? No I think Spiderman 2 is my favorite like here are my favorites in order.

  1. Spider-man 2
  2. Spider-man: Homecoming
  3. The Amazing Spider-man
  4. Spider-man
  5. The Amazing Spider-man 2
  6. Spider-man 3

As much as I want to put this as my favorite there were some scenes weren’t as intense. Like the scene where Peter is trying to keep the ship from falling apart that wasn’t that of a intense. It was no stopping a train after Doc Oct blows up the railways and Peter holds it back with all his strength. That scene is tense as hell. This movie didn’t completely lack it though I mean that last fight at the beach with the fire and that other scene that happened before that with Peter under the rocks trying to get out so that he can stop the Vulture. I was like crying because it was like a moments out of the comics and I was like ‘Abby it’s out of the rubble! it’s out of the rubble!’. That scene was such a great scene, that was my favorite scene. Tom was fucking great actor in that scene.

I loved Tom in this movie, he is great spiderman. He is so dorky and nerdy and cute and very time things went wrong I just wanted to hug him! Peter was so precious in this film. I loved it. I also loved the other characters in the story like Ned and Michelle who I guess is the MCU version of MaryJane because at the end of the film she is like my name is MJ so I was right about her being MJ but I was also wrong about her being MJ. I loved these characters they are so great and funny. The scene where Ned finds out that Peter is Spiderman was so funny. The death star just falls on the floor and Peter is like what I’m not spiderman and I’m dude I know you what to keep this secret but you can’t get out of this. You’re wearing the Spiderman outfit, it’s too good to be a cosplay, you were on the ceiling like there is no way to lie about this.

Ned starts asking Peter all these questions at a fast pace like are you an average and Peter is like basically yeah and I’m like oh honey. Aunt May comes in the room and it’s just Peter shirtless in his underwear with Ned and she just doesn’t comment on it which was so weird for me. Like your nephew is in his room in his underwear with his best friend and you just right going to say anything about it. Has this happened before? Or does she not care? I’m just wondering because i think it is weird. The next day Ned is asking him all these questions about his powers and I’m laughing because they are some weird questions but like if you had never heard of spiderman then these are like the types of questions I feel like someone would ask. Ned is a fun character and I had so much watching him and Peter on screen. ‘I’m the guy in the chair’. I love when Peter is in trouble and then it looks like the shocker going kill him, Ned gets the web thing and saves him that was so great.

I also loved Zendaya. She has a smaller part then I expected but I still thought she was great. I mean she just pops up and says some one-liners but it’s great. So like I said before she is the character Michelle, she is not Mary Jane but at the end of the film she like my friends call me MJ and me and friend were Oh oh oh ohhh. I think she will probably Peter’s love interest because before Peter leaves she gives him like this look. If you saw the movie then you know what I’m talking about. I loved Liz Allen. I thought her and Peter were cute. I knew that something was gonna happen and that they weren’t going to get together because I know that they don’t together in the comics and they don’t get together in the film. I don’t know why they had that almost kiss in the trailer because it happen in the film.

I called that her dad was the Vulture. Sort if. I said it like a if what thing. I was like if her dad is the Vulture or works for the Vulture how awkward would that be. Then he gets to her house and the door opens and it’s the vulture and I’m like oh shit oh shit oh shit! That final battle was so epic and great. I loved it.

Okay I loved Tony in this movie. He just wants to be Peter’s dad and protected him and I loved it. He wants what is best for him. Also Tony and Pepper might be getting married that could be happening. When the Iron spider suit appeared, I was like whoa but then I was trying to remember what it called. My friend couldn’t remember either when the film ended, we went to the parking lot and asked her brother what it called. The film ends with Peter putting the suit on and Aunt May seeing him which I thought was so funny. I liked Aunt May and I thought she and Peter had a good relationship. There are a lot of jokes about how young she is. Also Flash I loved how we changed from him from dumbass joke to on the smart team thing that I don’t remember what it’s called with Peter. I mean he is still a dick but I liked him. Tony Revolori did great job and you known that they did a good job when they make you hate their character.

The end credit scenes though was so great! So the mid credit was with the Vulture keeping Peter’s identity secret and the end credit scene. I waited forever for it and then Captain America appears and started talking about being patient and I’m dying!

This movie was amazing and so much fun to watch. If you didn’t see this movie then why haven’t you seen it. Like go see it. I know that we’ve seen a lot of Spiderman films and in the end they have flopped but this one gives me hope that it could work out! IT COULD WORK OUT IN THE END! IT COULD WORK! If you have seen it though then what did you think? Did you love it? I loved it! Did you hate it? I hope you didn’t hate. If you did I’m sorry but I loved it.

YAS! YAS! YASSSSSS! | Wonder Woman review

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing Wonder Woman which was directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pines.

WARNING SPOILERS

Wonder-Woman-Poster_1200_1778_81_s

Rating: + A: Perfect book with get characters and fantastic plot line.

Here it is! The film all of us have been waiting for and been really excited about because Wonder Woman was probably the best things out of Batman VS Superman. So I didn’t know what to think about this film when all the trailers came out because I really wanted to this movie but BVS and Suicide Squad weren’t the best movies ever but I loved watching the trailers and Gal Gabot looked so badass as Woman Wonder that I still got excited for this movie and it was everything I expected and so much more!!!

This film is amazing! It is the best film in the DCEU in my opinion and it is the most colorful in the DCEU. It’s a fish out of water film for both Diana and Trevor who are great! I don’t really have any negative things to say about this film. It was beautiful shot, it was a wonderful and fast paced plot line with funny moments just sprinkled in. So this film begins with Diana narrating us and then these guys from Wayne Enterprise show up and they give her this box and for some reason my mind went to Justice League but it was the picture of her and Chris Pine and everyone else from the group that they form in this movie but we will talk about that later.

I loved watching little Diana and her wanting to train so badly. I love that moment where she is running away trying to hid and then she just jumps but before she hits the rocks her mom grabs her and she is just like ‘Hi mother how are you?’ and little Diana is the cutest thing ever. She just wants to fight and her mom doesn’t want her to so she fights in secret with her aunt training her which we all know her mother was going to find out any. She does and then we hear her mom and her aunt talking they are like saying how Diana is special and that they can’t think that Aries won’t come back because he will and they need to train her. Watching all these cool people train was so cool because they are all look badass.

0381c93df0b7a6347f438612c42e2d05.gif

Chris Pines’ character crashes onto the island and Diana saves him and I love it. These two are the cutest thing in the whole world. I like I love how they are around each other, it’s just so adorable. They are both from different worlds and they are there for each other and they just want to protect each other. This is the relationship that I like and I want to see more of. The one where either of them need to be saved all the time, where they both have different strengths and weaknesses and they save each other. They both do what they have to do and they both have to help each other to get there and together they are stronger together.

That’s why I love this relationship because these two make a great and strong pair. He wants to protect her and she protects him and it’s great. If you don’t love them then you need a heart, you heartless motherfuckers! I love the scene where he teaches her how to dance and it starts snowing! I also love Steve because he knows what Diana is able to do and he believes in her. One of the things he says to Diana before he dies is I can save the world but you can save the world and I’m dying.

6eb317a4-8858-480e-b4db-8ca108a33e84.gif

I was crying in the theatre when it happened because she loved him and he died. If you are surprised by the fact that I cried then you shouldn’t be because if you’ve been at this blog for a long time than that should come as no surprise. I cry all the time, I cried watching Civil War. I guess that’s my thing now crying during superhero movies. I will probably be sobbing like a baby when Spiderman: Homecoming and I will be dead when Infinity Wars comes.

We have three bad guys for this movie but the thing about that is we look one of them is the same person. One is mad scientist lady who is creating this poison where a gas mask doesn’t help you and the other one is this german leader guy who is asking her to create all this stuff. The main villain of this story is the god Aries which we met in the beginning when Diana’s mom she is telling the story of Zeus creating man and Aries filled them with jealousy and then the Amazons are created and a lot other stuff happens. So before Zeus died he placed the amazons on an island and created a god destroyer. Before the final battle comes, we learn that the guy we that had been leaned to believe, the german leader who was like taking this stuff created by the an evil scientist, isn’t really Aries. Now I kind of figured it wasn’t going to be him or that killing him was just going to stop all the fighting. It wasn’t going to be that easy.

Aries is really Sir Patrick or Lupin from Harry Potter because that’s what I’ve been calling him. Now I didn’t see this coming and either did my family but the girl behind in the theatre saw it coming which I could tell by her cheers of joy. I was surprised because I didn’t even factor him in as being Aries, I was too busy thinking that he was Lupin from Harry Potter so I could clearly trust him *but i couldn’t but I didn’t know that at the time! He and Diana got into this really cool battle where Diana realizes that people have some good in them and also she is the god destroy which I realized that she was the god destroyer.

pic_013-1.gif

*i couldn’t find a better gif of this battle sorry. i wanted a better one but this one is still good. i have no clue is this is from wonder woman or bvs i’m guessing wonder woman

One of my favorite scenes is the battle where our group is up at the front and Diana is like we have to go and help people and she leaves and goes through no man’s land and it’s soo COOL!!! She just takes down everyone and it so badass! I was at the edge of my sit! Every time Wonder Woman’s theme came on I got so excited because that meant shit was going down and I loved it!

2e9ae5b7edc6ca596987d1a018f6d3c92f5ed8a2c2bced20c8b74386fe318ca3.gif

*it’s just so awesome!!

The side characters are great I enjoy having them around. We have Steve’s secretary who is so funny. There’s one scene where she has Diana’s sword and shield and Steve and Diana *mainly Diana are fighting people in a alley and one of them tries to escape and then she appears with the sword and shield. We also have the people that go to battle with Steve and Diana and they were also great characters and I enjoyed having them around. This film was amazing and if you haven’t seen it then you are missing the fuck out on one great movie with a fantastic female character. Anyone can enjoy this movie! Like everyone in the theatre was having a great time.

So I didn’t great any of the things I said I would get out this week instead I just wrote this review. I’m sorry I just had to talk about this movie so everything that I said I would write will probably be out next week *maybe. Have you guys seen this movie? If you haven’t then WHAT ARE YOU DOING GOOD SEE IT! If you have then what did you think of it? Did you like it as much as I did? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to look out for more coming your way. You should follow my book club here and other social media links.

THE MOST AMAZING EVER!! | Beauty and the Beast 2017 Movie Review

Greeting Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast staring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast.

WARNING SPOILERS!

BECAUSE THIS FILM MESSED ME UP!!

BUT IN A GOOD WAY!

onesheet

Rating: -A: Good book with characters that got better and a slow plot line

If you didn’t know, I’ve been looking forward for this film for a long today and last month it finally came out! Unfortunately I took me forever to go and see it but now I’ve seen it and I have soo much to say because it was so beautiful and perfect and I cried like five times because I have a giant emotional attachment to the original film *stops to catch breath. So yeah I’ve talked about my excitement in two different posts, one talking about my excitement in general which you can read here and then another talking about everything that I was looking forward to this year and this was the first thing on it which you can read here.  I also reviewed this original movie which you can read here.

I love the original film, it was my favorite disney movie ever and every time I watch just fall in love with it again. I just love the story and the characters and the love and the music and the whole damn thing! IT’S THE BEST THING IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!! So I had high hopes for this film for one it’s a live action version of one the best films ever and two it’s got Emma Watson playing Belle.

emma-watson-beauty-beast-trailer-today-170221-tease-01_6e9eb899159e40b1de2168a4c1bd527e.today-inline-large.jpg

This was a great casting choice in my opinion, Emma Watson is just so amazing as Belle and in the beginning of the film all I could think is damn why do you get to be so pretty? because she is so beautiful. I loved her sing in this movie and I didn’t even know they were going to sing until a couple mouths before the film came out and I was freaking out because I had never heard Emma Watson or Dan Stevens sing before. Everyone was great in this film with the singing and everything! Another reason I was looking forward to this movie was DAN FREAKING STEVENS!!!!!!

676FD93B-8EE0-4FC8-AAD1-C676C219CB35_cx0_cy3_cw0_w1023_r1_s

Oh my god! I love him! Look at that face!!!! LOOK AT IT!!! *oh yeah a discovery that i have made is that i’m basically in love with every british male actor and sometimes actress ever!! it’s a problem but i think i can live with it. I watched him on Downton Abbey and he was soo great on that show but then he left and IT BROKE MY HEART!! But I found out that he was in this and I was so excited and I got really excited when I found out that they sang! I was ready to find out if he could sing and they never released any clips of him singing, they released clips of everyone else singing but not him. And then the film came out and everyone was talking about Evermore which is the song that the Beast sings.

I didn’t listen to it because my rule was not to listen to any of the songs until I saw the movie and I did just that and it was WORTH IT!!! I was sobbing during the song, my friend looked at me like I was having a stroke. I’ve been listening to this song everyday for weeks now. I REGRET NOTHING!!! Dan Stevens was great as the Beast and he and Emma did such a great job with their characters and their songs. One of my favorite things during this film and the scene where I was every emotional that my friend had to hold my hand to calm me down was the dance scene where the two dance and she was wearing that dress and the main song is playing and IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL!!

Beauty-and-the-Beast-Featured-11142016.jpg

Emma Thompson who played Mrs. Potts did a great job singing Beauty and The Beast during this scene. For a second I thought they were going to play Ariana Grande and John Legend’s cover of the song which is the worst in my opinion but then they didn’t which made me really happy. I thought the iconic yellow dress looked good at some moments and then some other moments it looked boring but I still liked it.

The film had good moments and unlike what the trailers show you, it isn’t a spot on remake of the original version. They add different thing like they showed happened with Belle’s mother, the Enchantress’ who cursed the beast shows up more than she did in the first version, more new songs were add and they were pretty good, and we got some new characters and we also saw Mr. Potts. I thought Gaston was great and what I mean by that is I mean the actor Luke Evans did a great job of making him a horrible character because Gaston sucks. His death was also another thing that was changed and Le Fou became a better person in the end and realized that Gaston wasn’t making the right decisions. They also made him dance with a guy at the end which I don’t have a problem with but it was just thrown in there and I’m like if you going to make a disney be with someone of the same sex then give them a bigger storyline then just one moment.

My least favorite thing about this movie was Be Our Guest which is one of the most iconic songs and scenes in a Disney movie but in this film it was performed Ewan McGregor who did the voice of Lumiere and he did an okay job. The whole thing was a GI mess and crazy and I was cringing the whole time. Another scene that I cried really hard in was when the Beast was injured by Gaston and he is on the break of death and the last petal falls and everyone turns back into still objects and it’s so sad!!!!

This was a great movie and I’m glad to have seen it! I laughed, I cried, and I loved every second of it. What do you guys think about this film?

Let’s talk about Spiderman: Homecoming!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m going to talk about my thoughts on the new Spiderman movie starring Tom Holland which comes out July 7, 2017.

img_3386

Spiderman or Peter Parker is a very popular comic character and one of my favorites superheroes. I normally would explain things about what I was talking about but you should know about Spiderman. Peter Parker was bitten by a spider and then he got powers. He is a great character who is very funny and I love his comics even though I just got into them recently. They are all great. He has had many chances at having live action movies. In 2002 -2007 we got three spiderman movies staring Tobey Magurie as Peter Parker and Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson and a lot of other characters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have never seen these movies completely before but I don’t want to because they look terrible. I’ve seen some scenes from these, I’m sorry they look really bad. I know people like these movies but I don’t understand how. I mean seriously even after Spiderman 3??? *i’m sorry i know we all have different and i shouldn’t judge these movies because I haven’t seen them. People still like these better than the two movies made in 2012 -2014 which starred Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a lot of unpopular opinions but the fact is that I like these movies. I loved Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. They had such great chemistry during this movie and I thought that it was a good movie. It was a good take on Spiderman, it was a deep film that followed a kind of depressing Peter Parker. I’ll admit I could have gone without the lizards and the second one had too many villains which made the third movie Spiderman fail.

These movies didn’t get another one which did upset me but for Captain America: Civil War it was announced they were recasting Spiderman and my sister showed me a picture of the guys they were thinking about casting and all I could think was ‘damn these guys are so young that they could be babies’. I didn’t hear anything else for the movie because I wanted to be surprised but then after awhile I forgot until my dad sent me the second Civil War trailer.

I texted my dad back in all caps SPIDERMAN. Then I saw the movie which was amazing and I think everyone should want to watch and I fell in love with two people that day: Peter Parker *well i already loved him but i loved him even more and Tom freaking Holland. He is so adorable in this film and he is closer to the age then Garfield and Magurie were. If I’m being honest I’m very attractive to Tom Holland, have you seen his Instagram? He is really hot. I loved him in this movie and when Spiderman: Homecoming was happening, I got really, really excited.

Then the first trailer dropped and I’d loved it.

I loved it! I had never seen anything so great and I could only think that is it! We are finally getting the perfect Spiderman movie! It is going to be amazing and perfect! I’m so looking forward to it. It has a great cast, a hot lead, a good storyline, a cute lead, Zendaya is in it and for awhile everyone thought she was playing Mary Jane but she is playing some girl named Michelle *or maybe she is playing Mary Jane I don’t!, Aunt May is really young for some reason, and it looks so good! I was excited for this movie, I put it on Things I’m looking forward in 2017 list because if you haven’t guessed I was pretty damn excited.

But then the second dropped the other day.

It made me excited because we got all new scenes, more Tony Stark, some Iron Man, more Tom Holland, we got to see an interesting Spiderman suit with new stuff added to it, more Peter Parker, and we finally see the new villains. Yeah that’s right villains, plural. You know part of the reason Spider-man 3 and The Amazing Spiderman 2 failed were because they had too many villains. Spiderman 3 had the sand guy and Topher Grace and maybe someone else like I said I have made it through this film. Then The Amazing Spiderman 2 had the electricity guy and Harry Osborn somehow got in there and decide to be the green goblin *i forgot to tag spoilers. spoilers. 

I’m not saying it’s only Spiderman movies because there have been movies a lot villains and it’s never worked really and now I’m worried for this movie. That makes me nerve because this film is something that I have been very much looking forward to.

We have been given three villains who are:

Michael Keaton as The Vulture

Michael Chernus as The Tinkerer

The Shocker

I don’t know how I feel about this film now because I was looking forward to it but now everything is changing. I’m a little glad this happened though because my expectations would have been to high and have now they are almost at a realistic level now which is good or else I would have been really mad. I’m still excited for this film, I think it has a great cast and it could still be good. I’m not as excited as I once was.

I’m curious about a lot of things though because there have been rumors about Pepper Potts making a small appearance but I guess the same was said about Civil War but that ended up not happening. There was also that thing about Zendaya playing Mary Jane that went around which I thought would have been awesome but according to everywhere on the internet with information and Zendaya, she is playing some girl named Michelle. I also want to know if we are going to see Peter’s whole backstory, I mean I know we all know it and in Civil War they had Peter six months after he had gotten his powers but every spiderman movie has the origin story.

And another thing if you go on IMBD, you’ll find that a lot of people’s characters haven’t been named and that’s gotten me thinking. Like Donald Glover is in the film and my first thought was Miles Morales and Spiderverse but I’m trying not to think that because that feels like a giant long shot *i mean how cool would that be though, right?

I’m going to see this film, it’s in July and my friend and I are already making plans to go and see which is great because she is a big spiderman fan like me. We talked about this movie so many times this week it’s crazy. Most of the conversations I’ve had with my friends since week have been marvel related. I have a problem.

It’s all I want and all I need *i’m singing this in my head. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting so good and I’m worried that it is ending after Infinity Wars which I don’t want! Like what else am I going to do? Get involved in the new DC movies? Why would I do that? Also Spiderman is going to be in Infinity War which is cool!!!!!

It’s also been going around that there is going to Infinity War and the second spiderman movie but then that’s it for Tom Holland as Peter? Like are they going to others or is that it? If that is it then how dare marvel make me fall in love with new characters and new actors and then take them away!!

What do you guys think about this film? Are you excited to see it? Are you worried about the multiple villains?

Greetings everyone! Now I know you are probably thinking ‘Gigi we are already three months into 2017 why are you making this now?’ Well I was going to make this list earlier but I decide not to do it for some reason I can’t remember at moment. But a lot of stuff is coming soon and I’m really excited and I need to talk about it! This are in no order at all it is just a list!

Let’s began!


Beauty and the Beast

March 17, 2017

onesheet.jpg

This is the live action version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast staring Emma freaking Watson and Dan freaking Stevens and a lot of other great actors! I know this movie is already out but I haven’t seen yet and it’s driving me crazy! I love Beauty and the Beast the original *i have a review here and I have looking forward for this movie for years *i have a post talking about it hereEveryone in the world has seen this expect me and I’m really sad about that because I’ve only heard amazing things! I mean they have all the original songs from the original and they add a couple more like Evermore! I haven’t listened to it yet because I’m trying to wait for the film but I’ve that it’s heart breaking and DAN STEVENS SING!!!


Pentatonix Vol. IV: Classics

April 7, 2017

318+M3BUlIL._SS500

Yes the beautiful angels are coming out with another album except they are doing covers again but old school covers. They have already released one of their new songs which is called Imagines and it’s beautiful and heartbreaking and everyone needs to listen to it! They have also released Jolene with Dolly Parton and that won them their third grammy! That is also a really amazing song and even though Jolene is country it’s so good and everyone should listen to it either way. I really love Pentatonix and I’m excited to here their covers of these songs.


Orphan Black: The Final Season

June 10, 2017

orphan-black-season-5

It’s the final season and I’m excited but I’m heartbroken because I don’t want it to end. This show is so amazing and great! There are four seasons out right now, I think you can watch them on Amazon Prime but that may not be right. You all should just binge watch this show before it ends because it is just so amazing. Tatiana Maslany is such an amazing actress and you know that she is an amazing actress because she plays half the characters on this show and she is great! She finally won an emmy you know some time ago and I was so happy for her!


Spider-Man: Homecoming

July 7, 2017

979e4c18d16b65a6054554bc13c5c197536e6f26

Who else is excited for all the upcoming marvel films because I’m so excited like you don’t even know! I’ve recently gotten into Marvel comics *I mean I’ve always lived the movies but now I have the comics and I freaking love them. Like it’s made the whole marvel universe seem a lot bigger and a lot more overwhelming to me. There are just so many characters and universe and there is just so little time! So I have now fallen head over heels in love with the all the spider-men and spider-women and Tom Holland so I’m so excited for this film! And yesterday my excitement grew because I was on Donald Glovers IMBD because I love him and I wanted find stuff on the new Lion King and then I see that it’s says that he is going to be in this movie *screams of joy!!!!!! I’m just sitting there thinking what if he gets to be Miles Morales because he has already voiced him and by doing this we could bring the whole spider verse together and IT COULD BE GLORIOUS!!

Also could someone tell me who Zendaya is playing in this movie because I thought she was Mary Jane and they announced that she was going to be Mary Jane but now everyone is like she is some chick named Michelle and I’m just confused.


A Court of Wings and Ruins by Sarah J. Maas

May 2, 2017

ACOWAR_US.jpg

I need to just review this because some much stuff happens in them and it just drives crazy and leaves me in a emotional reaction. If you have read these books and then you just have to go and read them because these books are just so good! Like any other Sarah J. Maas book. Warning these books have very sexual themes so if you aren’t comfortable with that then don’t read them. I’m so curious to see how this finale book in the series plays out with Feyre and Rhysand and with the crazy events that happened in A Court of Mist and Fury. I remember being in shock the whole time reading that book and damn it I need this book now!


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

May 5, 2017

guardiansofthegalaxy2vert-208281.jpg

I can not expressed to you how much I love the fact that this movie is called Vol. 2 and not Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I hate when they call the movie sequel number 2 like just come up with a title!! I’m so excited for this movie, I’ve watched all the trailers so far and I’m ready for this! Baby Groot is the cutest thing ever to exist The first Guardians of the Galaxy was a really get movie, I’ve never laughed so hard in my life and I’m hoping that this one is going to just as amazing as the first. I’m really excited for all the upcoming Marvel movies for this year and for next year and I hope that they never stop making them because I don’t know what I would do!
