Ugh, I don't want to write this review at all. I've been putting it off and putting it off, but I can't delay it any longer. I have to write a review of Logan, which means saying goodbye to Hugh Jackman as Logan. (That's not a spoiler - Jackman has been very vocal.) I am not ready for this!
The MCU has got its claws in us now...Black Panther is the second release in a row that we've seen in the theater. Granted, it was an early bird, non-3D, 9:35am showing, but we paid nonetheless...
So this past summer vacation, we did the Washington, DC thing. Imagine our disappointment when we found that we couldn't go up the Washington Monument - and now we know why. Thanks, Spidey - you really screwed the pooch for our family vacation.
There has been nothing on my TV but the Winter Olympics for the last 2 weeks...so why not just go with it and watch a movie full of Snowboarders? I'm talking Mountain Dew, baby!
We originally saw Ragnarok months and months ago, while it was still in the theater. It was a hilarious and amazing film, so I don't know why it took me so long to put together a review. Maybe it's the gushing - I feel uncomfortable gushing - it's so much more fun writing about a stinker. Ragnarok is definitely no stinker. But then I saw the deleted scene that was released this week in anticipation of the DVD release.
One bad chicken nugget, that's all it takes.
Several months ago, I caught Lily watching this movie. I snatched the remote QUICK. I'd forgotten about it until I was chillin' with my friend Rachel. She lured me in with the promise of a glorious merkin...and y'all know how I feel about merkins.
I know it's a risk, but I'm risking my kids aspiring to truancy by introducing them to Ferris Bueller. It's a risk I'm willing to take...
I feel like the world needs a John Cusack/Samuel L. Jackson buddy/road trip movie right now. Now, more than ever, we need the joy that those two can bring us. ("I want these motherfucking snakes out of my motherfucking earnest romantic comedy!" or something to that effect?)
