Ever since I’ve been following Maria over at Big City Bookworm, I’ve been amazed at her skill to participate in multiple tag posts a week. I mean, I can hardly keep track of one (Thursday Movie Picks) let alone two/three per week! Anyway, Maria is awesome, which is one of the points I wanted to make, the other is that ever since I started reading her Top 10 Tuesdays, weekly tag created by The Broke and the Bookish, I’ve wanted to participate but I never really jumped for it… until today! Who knows if I’ll post for Top 10 Tuesday every week but I’ll try my best, especially since I’m clearly not writing any reviews lately.

Blame it on the lack of a Y-chromosome, or the fact that I was mentally charged by hormones, but after watching In Your Eyes for the first time, I gave it another viewing straight after. So in a span of less than four hours, I had seen it twice, and you know what, I wouldn’t mind watching it again because I have fallen in love with this movie!

Watch out for spoilers.
Going to see Avengers: Age of Ultron was a world wide event – everybody went, you went, your mom went (probably), your best friend went, your best friend’s friend went to see it twice and yet, I would say it might not have been worth it. Sure, there were great moments here and there but as a whole the second Avengers lacked the upmh (it’s a technical term!) it needed.

This is more of a news post rather than a review but since I am a critic I think it is my sole purpose in life to be critical from the start – so basically I’m gonna say bad things about the idea of making a Buffy movie.
Last year I spent most of my time watching Buffy as a childhood reminder, I found out that it was a lot funnier than I remembered and I enjoyed it. And I thought that it was enough, I felt it was the end and there wasn’t no more story to tell but apparently Warner Brothers think the opposite. They think that all the remakes and TV-shows made into a movie franchises which have emerged lately are successfully entered the minds of fans all over the world. Basically, they are delusional about the movie world and the fact that the fans usually don’t like when somebody takes their favorite thing and makes a new version out of it!
Joss Whedon himself commented on the matter (E! News) saying that he doesn’t like the idea (at all) and I agree with him. Making a movie out of a popular TV-show just because it is the era of vampires doesn’t make any sense, except that I’m pretty sure WB is thinking about money – the creative factor will be probably lost. I mean, honestly, what is the main point of the story? And who is going to play Buffy, if they bring the main cast back as a whole, they could manage but I’m not so sure they’re all on board (although Sarah-Michelle Gellar has been under the radar for a while…) – I hope they say no, I hope WB fails, for all our sakes. Plus, Whedon makes an interesting point, where are the creative minds that don’t need to dig up old classics for remakes?
