Summertime Mini-Reviews in 100 Words or Less

A year ago I did 6 Movie Reviews in 100 Words or Less. Today, amid preparations for our annual "deep housecleaning" and continuing the long, hard slog of finishing Lionhearted 4.0 (finally hit the halfway point, thank goodness), I'm once again setting for myself this fun little summertime challenge! Here are four mini-reviews for you in 100… Continue reading Summertime Mini-Reviews in 100 Words or Less

The Ultimate Doctor Who Review, Part One

I've been looking forward to writing this ever since I got four whole series of Doctor Who for Christmas! I've already reviewed Series 8, Series 9, and Series 10, but except for this very old (and slightly preachy) post from 2012 and an announcement back in 2017 that I'd started watching Series 7, I haven't really talked about… Continue reading The Ultimate Doctor Who Review, Part One

TV Review: Victoria, Season 3

After a week's respite from blogging, I'm happy to report that 1) I'm officially a Camp NaNoWriMo winner, 2) I finished Victoria: Season 3, and 3) I SAW AVENGERS: ENDGAME. Y'all need to give me another week to process (and recover from) Endgame before I share my review, haha. As for Camp NaNo, I'm thrilled… Continue reading TV Review: Victoria, Season 3

Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

Last week I just had zero blogging inspiration. If I don't have anything to say then I'd better not say anything at all. But then this week, we had a serious health scare/crisis with my grandfather. He got out of a very successful surgery just this afternoon, and he's doing great--but needless to say, I've… Continue reading Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

TV Review: The Crown, Season 2

I've been looking forward to the second season of The Crown* ever since my parents, sisters, and I finished the first one--albeit it with certain reservations. I'd heard that at least one of the episodes in Season 2 was quite smutty, and while I enjoyed the first season, I took issue with the way it portrayed… Continue reading TV Review: The Crown, Season 2

Movie Review: “Dunkirk”

I first saw Dunkirk* last year while it was still in theaters. While I definitely enjoyed it, the experience was hampered by the fact that I still find some British accents hard to understand without subtitles (especially in loud action scenes) and the non-linear storytelling was confusing, even though my brother had warned me about it.… Continue reading Movie Review: “Dunkirk”

Movie Review: “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

Good morning and Happy Labor Day! After spending a glorious weekend at my aunt and uncle's lake house, sitting on the dock with the wind and waves, enjoying brownies and barbecue, baiting my own fishing hooks with LIVE SHRIMP and also baiting crab traps with FROZEN FISH with my bare hands (see how I rose… Continue reading Movie Review: “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

Movie Review: “Darkest Hour”

As an avid student of World War II history, I was so excited about finally getting to see Darkest Hour*, the latest in a long list of films about the legendary British prime minister Winston Churchill. "A thrilling and inspiring true story begins at the precipice of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime… Continue reading Movie Review: “Darkest Hour”
