Before finally watching Jeepers Creepers 3, I went expecting the worse. Most of the people I saw writing about it said it was awful. Normally, I don’t pay that much attention what people have to say about a movie (I like plenty of “bad” ones), but with this it almost seemed like there was 0%… Continue reading Jeepers Creepers 3 | Movie Review
I decided to stop being afraid of reading big books. By big I'm talking about 600-1000+ pages (no big font or wide spacing). I have read large books in the past but I haven't for awhile. Why? My own reasons: Worried about it being too time-consuming, possibly being boring and not being able to read… Continue reading Reading Big Books

Coraline is one of my favorite books. As kid I was obsessed with it – I checked it out several times from the library until I finally bought my own copy. My child brain was fascinated by the dark world the book creates and Coraline’s showdown with the other mother. All the images and… Continue reading Coraline: What I Don’t Like About the Movie

The gist of it is that she argues that while Twilight, isn’t a good book or film, the hatred for it was way over-the-top. And that it’s the anti-teenage girl attitude society has that helped drive the hatred. Essentially, we accept… Continue reading Twilight/Stephanie Meyer Hate: Was it too much?
Stardew Valley is a nice little farming simulator game. Clearly inspired by harvest moon, it still has its own charm. It was one of the first games I downloaded for my Nintendo Switch, and one of the titles that I play the most. In the game you farm, fish, mine, fight some monsters in the… Continue reading Stardew Valley | Game Review
I love playing Splatoon. I had the first game on the Wii U and now I've gotten quite a few hours towards Splatoon 2 on the Switch. So, naturally I was excited to read the manga…but I ended up a little disappointed. First of all, I wasn't expecting a spectular plot or anything. Still, I… Continue reading Splaton Vol. 1: Manga Review
2017 certainly wasn’t the best reading year for me. Life was busy as heck but I still managed to read a few gems. Also, these are in no particular order and just because I read them in 2017 doesn’t mean they were released during the year. 😊 Tomie by Junji Ito A bizarrely beautiful manga.… Continue reading Best Books of 2017
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cIFmnn47OoM This is very interesting video that makes a good arguement about the character Greg Heffley from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I have only read the first three books in the series, but I found Greg extremely unlikable. Even before watching this video I thought I was reading about someone with sociopathic tendencies. … Continue reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Greg is a Sociopath?
