Thoughts on Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Over the weekend, I finally got to watch Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. All in all, I thought it was a good movie; much better than Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them. It had a more exciting plot. However, this isn’t a review. I couldn’t help but notice something in a particular scene. […]

More thoughts on subtitles

Perhaps this would be more accurately titled “My frustration with subtitles”. However, I don’t think that’s where my true issue lies. I’m mad at whoever creates TV shows or whoever decides which languages the shows should have subtitles for. Not everything is created equally. This is common knowledge, but I was still surprised to find […]

Pushing through writer’s block

Or at least I’m trying to push through writer’s block and get some writing done anyway. It’s kind of weird at the moment though; nothing I’m currently working on feels right. Usually, my ideas and stories flow through me. I know exactly what I’m going to write and I feel good about it. Like “warm […]

Captain Marvel

Carol Danvers doesn’t rememberer her life before she was part of the Kree civilization. All she knows is that she’s fighting an intergalactic war against the shape-shifting Skulls. And she’s working with the good guys. At least, she thinks she is. Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden did a really nice job bringing this part of […]

I stand corrected

In a recentpost, I discussed what I thought was a translation error in Harry Potter y el prisionero de Azkaban. I sent it to two of my friends and one of my former professors to see what they thought. You learn something new everyday, right? It turns out that “Pascuas” actually means “Christmas” in Spain. One of my friends sent me […]

Dr. Eren and the cinematic point of no return

It’s kind of hard to believe that the Oscars were only last week. I don’t know why, but it seems like they were forever ago. However, I will admit that I was more excited than usual this year because 1) Emily Blunt was in two movies that were nominated (Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet […]

My version of minimalism

The Minimalists. If you haven’t heard of them, their names are Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus. I was initially introduced to them on Dan Harris’s podcast, 10% Happier. So I started listening to their podcast, simply called The Minimalists Podcast, where they discuss how to live a meaningful life with less. Less clutter, that is. I started […]

Breakdown: A Million Little Things

If it weren’t for Outlander, A Million Little Things would probably take the top spot on my list of favorite TV shows. Is it weird that I even have a list to begin with? Why am I ashamed that I have a list? Anyway, I actually took a break from the latter for a while because I wasn’t really […]
