In an era where it’s almost impossible to avoid superhero movies and shows, Spider-Man: Homecoming finds a fresh way to portray a story of a superhero in the overly exhausting Marvel Universe. It adds a fresh take on the superhero phenomena, it brings us back to the excitement of having these superheroes exist, but it also asks us to keep our feet on the ground. And while I would not give Spider-Man: Homecoming the highest slot in my favourite Marvel movie lineup, I feel like it will always have a special place in my heart for making me appreciate the simpler things in life.
For this week’s theme I wanted to focus on movies that are filled with magic and have a fantasy element, which wasn’t hard, since the chosen one is like the most common character arc for that genre. That being said, picking between all these movies and sort of choosing the ones most closest to my heart, was still a difficult task. Here are four movies I recommend.

Another week has passed and I’m still reading Stephen King’s It – it’s my own personal horror story and I can’t seem to get out of it. It’s not that the book is bad, I enjoy it a lot, but I’m simply not sitting down to read these days. And I’m just frustrated by the fact that soon it will be a month of no work, and I’ve read almost one book total. I read more while I work 60 hours a week which is quite ironic but then again, my life is full of irony.
Last week was all about summer vacation movies which I cleverly avoided because I needed two of those movies into this list! Turns out I know how to plan ahead, who knew!? Anyway, here are three amusement park related recommendations, and even though two of them are really obvious, I feel like I cheated a little with the third one – but I don’t really care!

Part of me feels I wasted two whole weeks of vacation on nothing. I didn’t write any reviews, I didn’t finish reading Stephen King’s It, and I watched mostly shitty movies and binge watched one show. As you can see, I had no grand adventures nor trips during the past two weeks, and now that I’m on sick leave, I doubt I’ll manage to climb any hills any time soon. But if my hills are reviews, then I might manage to tackle a few of them this upcoming week.
