Reel Snippets of 8-17-17

Let’s knock off the first of the review’s I’ve been sitting on: Atomic Blonde. Kind of fitting, as it comes first in the alphabet.

What’s On My Mind on 8-10-17

Wow, it’s been a long time since I did one of these, hasn’t it? Well, I felt I owed it to you guys to explain why I’ve been gone for the last month. The truth is that it’s a rollercoaster of things.

As some of you may know, I’ve been working full-time as a paraeducator for special education. July was basically summer school and I thought, despite the earlier wake-up time, that I’d have a lot more time and energy to focus on Fish and Cherries and my writing. Unfortunately, things got messy. At the beginning of the second week of summer school, I learned that one of my students had been shot and killed a few days prior. This knocked me for a loop something fierce and I had to grieve before I could get back into the swing of things, hence the rather cryptic message I posted a few weeks ago.

The week after that was Comic Con which, while fun, didn’t really leave me any time to watch new movies. Besides, I was busy seeing Mystery Science Theater 3000 live, stand up routines from Conan O’Brien’s writers, and a community theater production of Game of Thrones… the musical. After that, though, things took a sharp downturn. I won’t go into too many details, but several things made me realize that I was not physically safe at the site I was working at. Luckily, that situation has been rectified and I predict happier days going forward.

I hope you guys don’t think of this as an excuse. This website means a lot to me and I constantly want to do my best to see it flourish. But mental health is just as important as physical health and said mental health was in deep decline for a while. Now I’m back over the mountain and ready to catch up. I’m currently sitting on my reviews for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Atomic Blonde and I’m going to be seeing Dunkirk today or tomorrow. Until we speak again, stay well, take care of yourselves, and my the Force be with you.

I have returned, with sword in hand, to slay a terrible creature. This is the big one, the one Siskel and Ebert would come back to life just to put in its place. Take heed, everyone… ahead lies The Emoji Movie.

Oh yeah, sorry for leaving you guys for so long. I’m going to make a post within the week to explain where I’ve been last month. Thanks in advance for being patient.

Happy Independence Day to all my American readers out there. That’s totally why I delayed posting the Snippets from yesterday and not because my editor was absolutely exhausted last night. No sir. Regardless, here’s my take on two big blockbusters.

Baby Driver

Here we go, everybody. The one I’ve been looking forward to all year. Is it good? Is it terrible? Either way, all the world’s waiting for it.

Wow… it’s been WAY too long. Naturally, I have a lot of catching up to do. But I know what you’ve all really been waiting for…

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Oh, and here are the films I’ve been sitting on for a while. Now that I’ve got a bit of a rhythm with my job, I’m hoping to be more consistent with my releases.

The Circle
Jesus, Bro!

There we go, nice and stabilized back to a regular schedule. I’ve successfully settled into my new jobs and I can finally get back to reaching out to you beautiful people. I wanted to have a double feature with Power Rangers, but this weekend was hectic and I’ll need a bit to recover. For now, here’s a movie that, well, is a bit of a touchy subject.

I know a lot of you are thinking, “why aren’t you doing Power Rangers or something else that came out this weekend?” Well, I was actually out of town with my dad for the weekend and not in a position where I could catch a movie. Family time is important, after all. So to tide you over, I thought I’d give you all something I’ve been sitting on for a while. Hopefully someday soon, I’ll be back to regular Mondays.

I really want to get back to Monday releases, but until then, here’s my latest batch. Hopefully, with the job search done with, we’ll be back on track soon.
