Mary Poppins Returns Movie Review

mary_poppins_returns_ver6.jpg

Mary Poppins has been one of my favorite childhood movies for as long as I can remember. I can’t explain how happy and scared I was when I found out there would be a sequel. At first I thought this would be a remake but later found out that it would revolve around the now grown up Baxter siblings, and John’s children. Yesterday I finally watched it with my family and all I can say is you won’t be disappointed.

Avengers: Endgame Movie Review

”Part of the journey is the end.”

The movie the world has been waiting for has finally come to an end. I went to the cinema with my heart in my throat, anticipating the events and dreading them all at the same time. This movie managed to bring out so many emotions all at once. Infinity War left us grasping for conclusions and theories, and Endgame came and gave us what we deserved.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was one of my favorite movies of 2016.

I’ve seen it about 3 times now and I’m planning to rewatch it this year too. There were so many things that I loved about this movie and this post will be part of my #Potterheadreadalong19 challenge.

Considering that it had been a long time since we had gotten another movie set in the Wizarding world, Newt’s suitcase was one of my favorite aspects! I loved seeing the magical creatures inside and how big it is in there.

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

📘 Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I read Strange in 2018 and it became by far one of my favorite books. So complex and imaginative and it features a librarian going on an adventure! Just the book for Ravenclaws.

📘 A Wrinkle in Time  by Madeleine L’Engle

A Wrinkle in Time was a pretty strange little book but with lots of knowledge which I think every Ravenclaw would appreciate.

📘 A Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I can assure you that Sorcery of Thorns is a Ravenclaw book. Our main character lives in a great library where they keep magical Grimoires in check. Also, the books whisper and some talk!

Welcome Witches and Wizards to my 1st post for #Potterheadreadalong19

Today’s post is all about book recommendations for you and the fellow Slytherins in your life. I’ve compiled a list of books that fit every trait that a Slytherin is known for. Plus some green book recs too!

 

This post will also help in choosing your read for Harry Potter Board Game Reading Challenge if you’re taking part in that.

Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.

 

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo from 20 Books for Slytherins | Bookriot.com   Image result for vicious ve schwab  Image result for vengeful v.e. schwab

I can’t recommend this book enough for Slytherins. Are you looking for a book with cunning, cleaver and ambitious characters and plot? this here is a book you should definitely try.

Vicious is another book that should be at the top of your reading list. I read it this year and I can’t explain how happy I am that I picked it up. The anti-hero/villain plot is so complex and just such an amazingly written book. Vengeful is just as good as the first one too!

Supernatural season 1 (2005)

phonto(7).jpg

Supernatural was one of those shows that I kept convincing myself that I wouldn’t watch even though a part of me really really wanted to. Why you might ask? Because when I started they were already in season 12.

Intimidating? Definitely.

I finally gave in and decided to watch this glorious show from scratch and make my way up. In this review I’ll be listing my favorite episodes and my overall thought about the show. Including a little rambling.

So, let’s get started with the review, shall we?

tumblr_n3a04dhnds1s8l4eao2_500.gif

*Might Contain Spoilers*

Synopsis:

The series follows the two Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean as they hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings. after his wife, Mary, was murdered by an evil supernatural being when the boys were young. 22 years later the brothers set out on a journey, fighting evil along the way, to find their recently missing father, but what they don’t know is that their lives are about to take the most eventful turn ever.

Season: 1

Episodes: 22

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Jim Beaver.

 


 

What I loved about this show was the chemistry. Although they haven’t seen eachother for a while you can still sense that their brotherly bond is still there, and that they’ve always got eachothers backs. The character development throughout the season was perfect.

This season was a bit strange for me if only because you dont know where it’s going. So many questions keep poping up in your head (I mean thats a good thing because you just started, and you’re eager to know what the hell is going on). The episodes were intriguing though! it really kept me busy. There wasn’t just one ghost or spirirt or monster. Each episode had something new.

I was told when I started that the episodes would be scary. That wasn’t true. Creepy? sure. Scary? not really. If you arent used to watching creepy shows or vampires, demons, ghosts, and all that jazz, maybe. I was on edge constantly because I was waiting for something to scare the living existence out of me.

The events that ended the season ruined me. So many fears and not knowing what will happen next. Then I guess starting late was a good idea wasn’t it?


Top Five Favorite episode

  • Bloody Mary: An incantation uttered during a game of truth or dare unleashes a ghost who “lives” in mirrors…and kills by gouging out the eyes of her prey. 350px-Bloody_Mary105

Thoughts: The urban legend is that if you say bloody mary infront of a mirror 3 times you’ll summon an evil spirit. I got so excited when I saw the title of the episode. I was expecting creepy and that’s what I got!

 


  • Home: After 22 years, A new family moves into the brothers’ old home, Sam and Dean return to their childhood home and, if Sam’s nightmares are correct, this house has yet another evil hidden inside. f4c1956a918159cb857a6ca805f81c223fd9e939

Thoughts: Sam and Dean go back to their old house to find a family living there, and Sam has a nighmare that something bad is about to happen. Not going to ruin the episode for anyone but the twist we got in the end was a complete thumbs up.


  • Asylum: The brothers investigate a long-shuttered mental asylum that has the power to drive intruders mad…and murderous. c3cbec2323faf3eba4d3fd20f0d26036--supernatural-quotes-supernatural-seasons.jpg

Thoughts: I remember watching this episode a long long time ago. For years I wondered which season of supernatural it was from. Then the day came for me to finally watch it again and grasp what it was about. Was not disappointed Ill tell you that.

Mental aylums in Tv series always give me the hibbie jibbies, and then they always end up being my favorite episodes.


  • Provenance: A portrait of a long-dead family has the spirits of the father and daughter trapped inside and someone is murdering its owners. GW290H194.jpg

Thoughts: This one starts off with a couple getting killed after putting up a painting of a family on their mantel. Spooky? for sure. The entire episode I was guessing a certain person to be the one behind it, but boy was I wrong.

 


  • Devils Trap: Sam and Dean race off to rescue their father, resulting in their first showdown between the Winchesters and the Yellow-Eyed Demon they have spent their lives looking for. tumblr_inline_mnylbtoTTu1qz4rgp.jpg

Thoughts: This was the final episode of season 1. The conclusion that we got to and the way it ended managed to rip my heart out. It was a week or so before I manged to get the second season. That week was pure agony Im sure you can tell.


 

With that I conclude this review. I loved the first season and it really did encourage me to continue on. Im writing this a bit late (Since im in season 6 now) but I thought Id give an idea to those who are hesitant to watch it.
