One of my favorite things to do is binge shows. Black Mirror is, and always will be, one of my favorites to binge. Would you believe I didn’t start watching this show until we were already on Season 3?! I had never heard of it until some good friends were like ARE YOU CRAZY YOU WILL LOVE BLACK MIRROR!
Admittedly, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. took me a while to get in to. But once I got past the fact that Coulson was dead, and now back, I loved it. What held me up? I was so afraid it would be super lame how they explained that away – don’t worry, it was actually amazing. If you haven’t watched this show yet, binge Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now, and then slide right in to Season 6, which is airing now on ABC.
Maleficent is one of my all time favorite villains, so I was thrilled to see her second movie was being moved up to 2019. We just got the teaser trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil – and it was all I could have hoped for and more!
I have been watching Game of Thrones since day one. It is one of those shows that had me hooked instantly, and since I have read the books (come on Georges…finish them already), I was even more excited about it. My dogs are named Sansa and Khaleesi, after all.
I love a good crime drama – especially when it filled with twists and turns like Dead to Me. When I first saw the trailer for this Netflix show, I was intrigued. After seeing several of my friends watching it (and loving it), I decided I would give it a shot. Well, I was immediately sucked in, and finished it in two days.
If you know me, you know I love to be scared. Why? I have no idea, but I do. One movie that terrified me as a child was IT. Of course I went to see the remake – and that scared the heck out of me too. Pennywise was creepy in 1990 — but this new version?! No thank you. But also YES. Because he is amazingly scary. When I first heard that IT: Chapter Two was going to happen, I wasn’t sure what to think. Pennywise is literally the reason I hate clowns. But we just got the IT: Chapter Two trailer – and all I can say is WOW.
My family loves Pokemon – so you know we were thrilled when we first heard about Detective Pikachu! Not only do we play the trading card game, we play the video games, and we collect all the toys. We were all shocked by the trailers and just how amazing Ryme City looks. I mean, I would give just about anything to visit there and hang out with real Pokemon. Now I get to give four tickets to one lucky reader so they can see the movie PLUS an adorable prize pack!
My daughters have been wanting to see UglyDolls since the first trailer came out – and we finally were able to go see it. They loved it. Me? Not so much. There were several things that felt off about the film, although the story itself is cute, with good lessons to be learned. It seemed like a not-as-fun combination of Trolls and Toy Story. Will I see it again? Nope. Will I buy it for the girls to watch over and over? Probably.
