What I'm Watching:

Random Thoughts for June 2016

The Witch is well worth the hype. I had been hearing about this film for so long on top of hearing amazing things about it, so my expectations were a tad high. But dammit if this film didn't just blow me away. The only negative things I've heard about this are people that don't understand slow paced and were expecting more of a straight up horror film. This is not it. Being more of a drama than anything, the film does some truly incredible things with the child actors and provides some of the most beautiful cinematography of any horror movie this year.

I actually enjoyed a Kevin Hart movie. I know, as impossible as it sounds, I actually found myself watching a Hart movie and didn't end up wanting to stabs my earballs. "Get Hard" is funnier than it has any right to be given how terrible the previews were for the film, but a big selling point is that Hart plays a normal person, not the exact character that he uses in his other films. Here he's the straight man and he's actually tolerable, which is very unlike any of his other roles. Sure, I still absolutely hate his Stand-up comedy with a passion, but hey, at least I can tolerate his movies a little bit now. Baby steps, people.

Have you heard of the game Subnautica? Because if you haven't then I highly suggest you change that as soon as possible. It's an exploration/survival game set on an alien world that is (almost) completely covered in water. As someone that's terrified of the ocean, the idea of this game sent chills down my spine. The idea of being out in the middle of open water is one of my greatest fears Speaking of scary water...

"The Shallows" looks like a whole lot of NOPE. If you know me, then you know that I have an irrational fear of the water and of sharks. I watched the trailer and, while I thought it looked dumb, I didn't really think anything of it. Then the shark appeared and we got to see a look at a super aggressive beast that made me want to move even further away from the ocean. I can deal with normal, regular speed sharks. But Hollywood Sharks that move with such power and ferocity turn my trips to any body of water into a nightmare. So as much as I love me some

I have book news. But I can't really tell you about it. I'm stuck in this weird spot where as much as I want to talk about it, I also don't want to ruin the surprise I have planned. All I will say is: make sure you tune into the site this Monday, the 13th. You may be in for a surprise...
