Excited for Daredevil Season 2

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 0 Comments

Midway of last year, I was thoroughly enjoying doing marathons of a bunch of TV series that had been hibernating on my “to-watch” list for the longest time. One of those series was Daredevil. Based from the Marvel Comics of the same name, I didn’t really get to be into the series until I had seen the movie. I became very interested after that. I had heard so much positive reviews of the Netflix series and finally got to see it myself and I couldn’t help but agree. The opening credits itself gave me goosebumps. I love the artistic and visual quality and the effective use of the signature “Daredevil Red” color in dictating the mood of the series.

Barbie's Makeover

I grew up in a generation where a little girl's childhood is not complete if she doesn't own at least one Barbie doll. My sister and I were lucky enough to have one each. They looked pretty much the same except for their hair. I didn't think too much of it then but as I grew older, there was so much backlash at how the Barbie doll was portraying a bad physical image for young girls. The doll was impossibly too proportioned and too perfect. Nothing much was done except give the doll a variety of cultural looks in terms of nationality and skin tone. Well, nothing until recently that is. Barbie finally got a much-needed make-over.

Zootopia, a Bustling Animal Metropolis ( a movie review)

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 , 0 Comments

Welcome to Zootopia, a bustling metropolis that is home to a variety of animals, all civilized and all just looking to co-exist in a society. Forget the usual cute and adorable animal characters that you see in most animal animations, in this film, the Disney team of artists have rendered the Zootopia characters that will appeal to a more mature audience with an elaborate new world and an engaging mystery at the heart of its plot. Would I want to live in such a world? Yes please, and I’ll be a tigress.

All Set for Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool

Tuesday, February 09, 2016 , , 0 Comments

Guess what I’m excited about for today? Despite the fact that we’ve just come from a long weekend and the first day back at work tends to be the one when you’ll be dragging yourself throughout the day to complete tasks, I am very much looking forward to attending the premiere tonight for Deadpool. I simply can’t forget how awesome it was to see Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson in the Wolverine movie where he gave us a sneak peek at how much he was born to play the role of Deadpool. Even Stan Lee agress very much so.

Book Review 1:The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher

Friday, February 05, 2016 , 0 Comments

The very first book I’ve chosen to read this year was written by one of my all-time favorite
authors, Jim Butcher and since I’ve been missing reading about Harry Dresden, I wanted to
see what interesting characters this new series has to offer. Plus, it had a steampunk vibe and
after reading the book’s synopsis, I was sold.

February Reading List

Thursday, February 04, 2016 0 Comments

I’m currently on-track with my Goodreads Reading Challenge this year with four books already done. Woohoo! With the current schedule I’m keeping now, that’s no mean feat. For my target of reading 50 books, I have to have an average of 4 books per month. Here’s a peak at what’s on my reading list so far.

The Lore of the Evermen
This is the fourth book in the Evermen saga and ever since I started reading the series for one of my challenges, it had been a favorite. The characters and the lore is very good. If I were asked to recommend a fantasy series to read (and be totally immersed in), this would be on top of my list.

The Lord of the Night is coming. The future of civilization is at stake.

Miro, high lord of Altura, is in the Imperial capital to prepare the Empire for the onslaught. He knows his homeland lies directly in the enemy's path but struggles to form the alliances he needs.

As the high lords bicker, Ella seeks the help of the newly crowned emperor, Killian. But, amid the growing tensions, their responsibilities drive them apart and, as emperor, Killian can't be seen to favor Ella's homeland.
Against a backdrop of old hurts, guilty secrets, and shaky new allegiances, people of all nations and abilities must learn to trust one another again, and form a united front against a powerful enemy intent on destroying them once and for all.

The Danish Girl Movie Review

Tuesday, February 02, 2016 , 0 Comments

When I got the invite for this movie, I was right in the middle of a very hectic work week. I only had time to quickly read the synopsis and see who was starring in it. I knew it was an Oscar contender and I was counting on it to be good. I wasn't prepared to be blown away both by the story and Eddie Redmayne. This was another amazing role for him and if he wins the Best Actor award for this, it would be more than deserving.
