Movie Monday

Went to see Avengers Infinity War.

There are going to be some spoilers here, so please don't continue on if you don't want to hear spoilers for Avengers Infinity War.

I had managed to keep myself spoiler free except for one thing that made me less eager to see the movie.

Someone ...

had ...

said ...

that ...

it wasn`t a complete movie.

So I knew things were going to end on a cliffhanger.

It still pissed me off when it happened.

Which was a shame, because up until then I really loved the movie. But I`m not going to be satisfied until I have seen the second part of it next summer.

And I have to say, it does grill my shorts when movies do this. If it`s been left at a good point, I don`t mind. But an all out cliffhanger? Yeah, not such a happy camper here. At least give me an okay for now ending. At the end of Infinity War things are NOT okay.

I liked a lot about the movie - it held my attention tightly and was a real break from all the work I have to do - I was not sitting there stressing over stuff and thinking I shouldn`t have gone to the movie like I was with Deadpool 2.

I loved seeing everyone from all the movies, seeing how they all fit in with each other.

I thought that Peter Parker matured a fair bit in this movie - but not so much he still wasn`t a teenage boy (and Peter is legitimately a teenage boy, so I appreciate that he acts like one).

How much do you think Peter Dinklage loved being the tallest character for eons in his scenes?

Go Wakanda!

I loved that the Hulk wouldn`t come out. He was done being used whenever they needed a behemoth to fight for them.

Things I did not like:

That Starlord is such an boy, lacking confidence and acting out about it. I suppose it fits his character as he was stolen away as a young teenager, but it still irks me. A number of the Guardians characters are still more charicatures, very one-dimentional.

Yo, Thanos - you know what the fatal flaw in your click of the fingers and bring the universe in balance again plan is? Give the universe some time and you`re just going to have to do it all over again and are you really okay with that? With having to destroy half the entire population of the universe on a regular basis? Now that you have all those infinity stones how about putting some thought into a different solution?

So a very good movie up until the last five minutes. I won`t be happy with it until I`ve seen part two and it has an actual ending.

Random Friday

is random!

  • I do this every summer. It`s like once the warm weather shows up I fade and I have the hardest time getting stuff done, but I am trying very hard to get back into the swing of things - including doing more blog posts!
  • I need to pull the winner for the not going to RT contest. I have a couple extra things to throw in with the prize (like a copy of Born of Air in print, too)
  • It hasn`t even been that hot yet. Or rather it`s been hot but not humid, or it`s been humid but not terriby hot. However, I`m kind of dreading July.
  • Strawberry season is almost upon us. I want to make jam this year, even if it`s only one double batch.
  • My father is getting too much rhubarb to use all on his own, so I have been blessed with his overflow. I have made pie and rhubarb custard crisp so far. With the new batch I got yesterday I`m going to make rhubarb cookies and another custard crisp.
  • I know rhubarb is an aquired taste, but I am a sour fiend and so I love it. And in desserts you get that sweet/tart mix that is just divine.
  • Still watching Masterchef Australia. We have finally gotten a new season here (8) so I have new episodes to watch instead of retreads.
  • I have editing to do - boo
  • I have writing to do - yay
  • I have laundry to do - double boo
  • I have baking to do - yayayay
  • The dog is giving me the why haven`t you walked me yet eyes so I should go pick the winner of the contest and then take him out.
  • Happy Friday everyone!

Top Ten Tuesday

I thought I'd have a little light fun today and do my favorite animals.

Top Ten Favorite Animals

10. Sloth - this is half my spirit animal, so I had to include it! (a unicorn is the other half)
9. Elephants - between the slow gait and all the wrinkles, I always feel like they are the wise elders
8. Giraffe - I love the long legs and longer neck, the graceful way they move despite that.
7.  Wombat - I have always loved all things Australian, including this rolly polly beastie.
6. Moose - they're so majestic and yet so ungainly at the same time.
5. Dogs - especially my Bacon.
4. Snow Leopard - I'm for winter in my animals as well as weather ;)
3. Polar bear - see?
2. Unicorns - they do too count!
1. Dragons - just like the unicorn, they do too count.

Movie Monday

Long time no Movie Monday!

There are so many movies out this summer that I want to see - many of which have already been released. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to go to any until last weekend. I needed a sanity break and went out to see Deadpool 2. Yeah, Deadpool and sanity maybe don't belong in the same sentence ;)

I enjoyed the movie, but I have to admit to being somewhat disappointed. I loved the first movie and I didn't think this one lived up to it.

Now, I was tired, cranky and stressed, so it's quite possible that once it comes out in Blu-Ray and I watch it again, I'm going to like it a lot better. Also, I had more expectations for this one than for the first. I really do need to remember not to go into movies with high expectations because that almost always leaves me kind of disappointed.

But, as I said, I did enjoy the movie. I do love the way Deadpool constantly breaks the fourth wall.

Wednesday Rambles

Well, I had labelled this Top Ten Tuesday, and then I realized it was no longer Tuesday. So. Instead of a list, I will just ramble on the different things in my brain at the moment. I'm kind of scattered, so it's not going to be an organized post at all.

Today is 27C, which isn't stupid hot - for July! - it is however, summer weather and I don't like it at all. Once again, the weather I prefer for spring is MIA - 5C to 15C is my sweet spot. There has been very little of that so far. Maybe it'll cool down considerably from today. I can hope.

I looked at Netflix yesterday to see what all was new. Lord there's a lot of sci-fi and fantasy stuff I want to see. Movies, series, one-offs. Some days I think I should just get rid of the cable, but there's some stuff that I would miss. Lucifer for one - still my favorite show.

Just ordered the last of my stuff for RT yesterday. I was slightly handcuffed by the fact that I waited too long and couldn't get some of the things I wanted in the time I had left. I've been thinking I should get my stuff ordered since the beginning of March, but there was over two months to go at the time, lots of time, right? So I waited. And then bam, it's less than two weeks until RT... time does go by so damn fast.

The to do list. It's been pretty scary for a while now and that freezes me up. It just sometimes feels that for every one thing that I cross off, there are two more things added. There was a period of time when I would work from six am until midnight straight just to get everything done. These days I'm more likely to let things slide because really, at the end of the day when I'm shuffling off this mortal coil am I going to care if I was always on top of the work list? No, I don't think so.

I'm going to be signing at the Make a Date with Harlequin event at RT - come and see me and get a copy of Born of Air, which isn't out until the beginning of June and is only out in ebook. These print copies are for RT only!

Well, I have to get some writing done, so that's it for now.

Happy Humping Day all!
