Bridge to Teribithia movie review
Beware! Possible spoilers below! So i was on Reddit and was reminded that I wanted to see this movie for a while. Leslie’s death was spoiled for me on Reddit, but i honestly forgot about that spoiler until she actually died. But once again, I started this movie expecting something else. When this movie came out, i remember hearing people compare it to Narnia and call it a rip-off. I...
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman Review
Beware! Spoilers ahead! (picture found on Google). This is a tough one to review! I can’t say that I absolutely loved it (it’s not exactly my cup of tea…) but i have to admit that it is quite magnificent. It’s not fast paced, at least I didn’t think so, but I finished it fairly quickly. Neil Gaiman has this way of writing that I can’t exactly put my finger...
Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series Review
Beware: Spoilers! (Image copyrighted to respectful owners. Image found on Google) Author: Rick Riordan I decided to review all 5 books together (aside from the first one, which was half reviewed and half compared to the movie in an earlier post), since this series has already been completed. Overall, I really enjoyed the series. I do have to admit that I had trouble getting through the first...
Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief...
BEWARE SPOILERS. by Rick Riordan Naturally, my obsession with (Greek) mythology dictates that I (finally) jump on the Percy Jackson bandwagon. Though in all honesty, I’ve been meaning to re-watch the movie ever since Jake Abel = Adam Milligan = Luke. And Jake Abel = <3 <3 <3 I’ll start off with the book review first. Only reviewing book 1 (The Lightning Thief) right now,...
Dogma (Movie) Review
BEWARE SPOILERS. Why can’t we have ’90s humor back? I liked the movie, overall. It was pretty funny and I liked the references. The plot was okay. It wasn’t gripping. The movie was meant to be satirical and comedic, so I’m perfectly fine with the predictable plot. The acting was pretty good too. Admittedly, there were some parts where I had to sigh and think...
Captain America (Movie) Review
BEWARE SPOILERS. Once again, I didn’t read the comic for this one so take my opinions with a little grain of salt. Overall, I actually liked the movie. It wasn’t epic, wasn’t riveting or gripping, but it set the scene very well. I was actually surprised, because when this came out, way back when, my brother went to see it, and was pretty pissed when he came back, saying that...
Thor (Movie) Review
BEWARE OF SPOILERS. I BLAME SUPERNATURAL. FOR EVERYTHING. :| Long story short, SPN got me (deeper) into the supernatural, then into religion and mythology. Then Norse mythology. Now I’m currently looking up Greek myths. Anyway. I watched Thor to quench my Norse obsession. I heard many positive reviews and was recently able to get my hands on the movie. So, I gave it a shot. Now, maybe...
Neil Gaiman's "The Graveyard Book"
So I thought I would kick off my summary/review/critique blog with a book that I finished reading… about 20 minutes ago. That way, at least it is fresh in my mind. (FYI, there ARE spoilers below). Picked up this book two days ago at the library. In all honesty, I’m not quite sure what it was that I expected from it after reading the summary on the inside cover… On one...
