I had high hopes for Prisoners and though I wouldn’t say I regret seeing it, it certainly was not what I expected of the film. Much of it was stressful in that the premise is about kidnapped children, but to be entirely blunt, the entire film’s intrigue is based on the use of red herrings, and this doesn’t always make for interesting storytelling.

Obviously this contains major spoilers from tonight’s episode and from the rest of the season, so beware.

Note: OH MY GOD I WROTE THIS LIKE EONS AGO AND BY EONS I MEAN THE WEEKEND IT CAME OUT AND I FORGOT TO PUBLISH IT I’M STUPID WOW. There are a few spoilers in this one because it’s been out for a while so I added some things.

Prequels are interesting for the obvious reason—insight into the development of our favorite characters—but I think it was a strange move to do a prequel to a single movie as opposed to a franchise, even if it was a monstrous hit (haha I made a pun). Nonetheless, Monsters University was nothing short of an animated masterpiece, comedic gold for adults and children alike, and a heartfelt tale of perseverance meant to squander the dreams of children everywhere with harsh realities. More on the last part of this later.

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve written a review, and instead of blaming it on my laziness I can actually blame it on the fact that I’ve had close to zero interest in the majority of movies out these days. Yes. Close to zero interest in movies. I do, however, blame my laziness as the reason that it took me a few days to write up this particular review, as I saw Despicable Me 2 on Sunday. That being said: here is a review with critique and words and stuff. Enjoy.

The slate pics are bein’ lil shits and not uploading properly so just know there are four of them.

 Man of Steel is part II of this summer’s “I’m so nervous about this I’m gonna throw up thinking about it” series (the first installment being Gatsby). I was nervous because if it wasn’t good, Christopher Nolan’s Godly image would be defiled, and the very foundations of my cinephile religion would be shattered. But rest assured: no such travesty has occurred, and I slept in my pink Superman cape last night because I felt inspired by it all and I enjyoed it. Also, because I haven’t worn it in a while.

TV Countdown List

While surfing Reddit at work (yes this is a thing I am supposed to do) I came across this wonderful countdown list, which has a bunch of TV show premiere dates for shows on HBO, NBC, ABC, FOX, FX, CBS, and Showtime. So rather than me typing up another list of it, you can just have this one for reference. Enjoy!

A Fannibals Appreciation Post

NBC’s Hannibal has quickly become the most intense fandom in all of the Interwebs land (with fans deeming themselves “Fannibals”), but for a fandom obsessing about a cannibalistic serial killer, it’s actually hilarious and ridiculous in the best sense of the word. So being a huge Fannibal myself, I’ve done a very bad thing: I’ve compiled a list of some of the best Hannibal Tumblr posts of all time. (Remember when I was a quality blog writing articles and reviews and stuff?)

You’ll have to be a fan of the show to understand most of these and they obviously contain spoilers, but enjoy!
