Logan (2017)

The last time I enjoyed an X-Men movie was… never and honestly, I thought, before going to see Logan, that it will remain as such forever. Turns out I was wrong and I’m so glad I didn’t give up on the X-Men franchise after it being a big pile of disappointment throughout the years. Because Logan, despite the way he ended up there, proved that sometimes a franchise can change things up so much, that it not only distances itself from the rest of the movies in the best way possible but it also launches itself into an award worthy territory that no comic book movie has ever dared to venture!

Thursday Movie Picks: A Disappearance

What I thought was going to be another hard week for me, turned out to be an easy challenge. Three movies where our main character is motivated by a disappearance, simple as that. Two movies I picked have the same director, and the third one has a similar theme to the other. They are all crime-related, obviously, and I love crime-movies and shows, which is why I like all these movies a lot.

Commercial Break #73

Last week was rather productive. I managed to post five posts!, I read four books and I worked 6 days total – I’m surprised I survived but I won’t celebrate yet, I have a similar work week ahead of me. Part of me wonders if I’m even able to move after this month is over, not to mention the fact that my brain needs a reboot of some sort in the upcoming months. I’m hoping my sick leave will give me that two weeks of rest my mind needs…. but when will that happen? Who knows!?

John Wick Chapter 2 (2017)

During a double feature Sunday, which also happened to be on my birthday (a long long long time ago), I had the pleasure to walk into John Wick: Chapter 2 right after watching Fifty Shades Darker. So having that awful movie fresh on my brain, John Wick had to do some extensive ass kicking to get my mind completely cleansed and ready for the upcoming week. Luckily for me the movie did exactly that and going from a female audience to a male audience felt like going from hell to home.
