Anime Central 2017

Anime Central 2017
Last weekend I was at Anime Central (ACen) which was hosted at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. This was my second time attending, and I was also given a press pass again. I stuck around the main entrance hall/lobby for most of the convention hoping to catch cosplayers on their way in or out of the exhibit hall. It seemed this year a lot of cosplayers were more casual and spent more time in the exhibit hall than the entrance. [Read More]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
I enjoyed watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, it’s what a space adventure movie should be! What I especially love about the movie is that every character has his/her moment in the movie. It’s a great sequel to the amazing first movie. The movie has FIVE post credit scenes, yes 5, so be sure to stay through the entire credit scroll to catch them all. This is my spoiler filled review of the movie, so read no further if you haven’t watched the movie yet! [Read More]

C2E2 2017

C2E2 2017
This past weekend I went to C2E2 over at McCormick Place. Once again I wasn’t able to obtain a press pass, so I went as a civilian photographer– I bought my 3-day pass. Every year I’m going to try, and every year I’m probably going to get denied! C2E2 isn’t too big that it’s uncomfortable to go as an individual or even as a family. McCormick Place is huge and there’s plenty of room to expand in case the crowd size does ever get bigger. [Read More]

Logan

Logan
I liked the movie, but I didn’t love Logan. It was the best Wolverine movie Fox has made, but that bar is rather low to clear. After 17 years of playing the character, it was a good send off for Hugh Jackman. He really made the character his own over the years, despite being different from the comics-Wolverine character. The Good What I liked about the movie is that it continues to stay true to movie-Wolverine character that Jackman has made in his solo movies. [Read More]

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange
The last MCU movie for 2016, Doctor Strange came out last week. This is my spoilery review which covers some plot points and my thoughts of it’s potential impact on the movie universe. I really enjoyed the movie. It was an origin movie that formally introduced magic and the multiverse into Marvel’s cinematic universe. This is a big deal because it opens the door to infinite possibilities for how they wish to expand or even link universes together– I’m looking at Fox’s Deadpool/X-Men franchise here. [Read More]

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad
My quick non-spoiler-y thoughts on Suicide Squad: I went in with low expectations, overall, the movie was just okay. I was entertained, but not blown away by anything. If you are expecting what you saw the trailers, you are probably going to be disappointed. It’s worth a watch if you want to keep up with the DC movie universe. Disclaimer: I watched the movie for free with my T-Mobile Tuesday App, which gave me free tickets. [Read More]

San Diego Comic Con 2016

San Diego Comic Con 2016
Just got back from San Diego Comic Con and I’m super exhausted! My sisters and I were lucky this year and we got rooms at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, just a few blocks away from the convention center. I even nabbed myself a Superman Conan FunkoPop that was being raffled away in the very same hotel we were staying at! The weather was hot as the sun was unforgiving most of the time during the day.

Warcraft Movie

Warcraft Movie
This is my review for the Warcraft movie, which is based off the video game. I normally give a spoiler warning, but I won’t say enough about the plot of the movie to ruin anyone’s experience. But in case you are sensitive to any information and want to go in fresh, then you should stop reading now– but I doubt that since you’ve read this far already. I do have some background in playing Warcraft III, World of Warcraft (WoW), Hearthstone, and other games from Blizzard Entertainment. [Read More]

X-Men Apocalypse

X-Men Apocalypse
This is my spoiler filled review for the latest X-Men movie. I also talk about all the previous X-Men movies. It won’t be pretty. I did not care for X-Men: Apocalypse. I went in with low expectations and came out disappointed with what I saw. This is coming from someone who read some of the X-Men comics as well as watched the 1990s animated TV series. The problem is it’s a movie where things happen, has characters from the X-Men universe, but in name only. [Read More]
