Reel Snippets of 1-11-17

Welp, time to finish up the last bits of grunt work for those year end lists. Unfortunately, this is not a day where I’m looking at good movies. Still, I hope you’ll bear with me, even if you disagree, as I look at two films that I meant to catch last year.

Alice Through The Looking Glass
Warcraft

All right, let’s start off the new year by catching up with some of last year’s stragglers. Gotta fill out the best and worst lists, right?

Requiem For A Princess

It’s true… Carrie Fisher is now one with the Force.

I don’t have much energy to find the right words to send her off. It’s really painful that we’ve lost not only the third in a line of sci-fi icon deaths this year (the first two being Jerry Doyle and Ron Glass), but such an amazing woman in general. I hoped one day to meet her, but it looks like I’ll have to wait a lot longer. If you’re looking for a way to honor her, here’s something from a post going around Facebook:
– normalize mental illness and treatment
– take life a little less seriously
– destroy a fascist regime

See you, space cowgirl.

P.S.: We’ve lost the author to Watership Down and Ricky Harris from Everybody Hates Chris. I’m going to have some words with this year when I write my year-end list…

Happy Boxing Day!!!!!

Well, okay, it’s not much of a holiday in the States, but here’s hoping that some international readers will feel appreciated. Anyway, here are two more Snippets. Apologies for the size of one of the images. The website is being weird and not letting me resize it.

It’s Christmas!!!!!

Hard to believe after such a dreadful year that Christmas could still bring me such joy. Whatever the reason, it’s the point of this month and I’m gonna roll with it. With all that said, here’s my Christmas present to you: my review of Rogue One.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and here’s hoping for a Happy New Year.

Hey, it’s 12-12… not 12. Oh well, two out of three isn’t bad. Anyway, let’s look at something we usually only get in December with a Doctor Who special: aliens! This is my review of Arrival.

I sincerely apologize for my month-long absence. Last month was… fairly turbulent. Allow me to make up for it with double the Snippets.

Here we are, the end to one of the worst elections in modern history. Your social media feeds are probably flooded with politics (some of it mine) and are probably sick of it all. So let’s take a seat and enjoy the fruits of Marvel’s most recent and experimental film to date.

Doctor Strange

Happy Halloween, everyone! Let’s close off this month with an actual horror movie. And after we’re done, let’s find all of these damn boards and BURN THEM! Seriously, they always make the scary stuff scarier. You saw Paranormal Activity, right?
