HELLO!


Hey all, welcome to my blog.  

If you’re here because you’re tired of Supernatural and the cast- I have a lot of posts that will be of interest to you. Way too many. I kind of wish they’d retire the show and their stupidity. If you’re wondering why I’m trash talking your favourite show – there’s an explanation post here.

Please read the rest of this post if you’re wondering where the Supernatural recaps have gone.

If you have a general comment about Supernatural, the cast or whatever, I now have an open thread!

Bad Moviethon #22 – Men In Black: International


#22

…in which I examine if bad movies really deserve their woeful rotten tomatoes score

Rotten Score: 22%

The Men in Black have expanded to cover the globe but so have the villains of the universe. To keep everyone safe, decorated Agent H and determined rookie M join forces — an unlikely pairing that just might work. When aliens that can take the form of any human arrive on Earth, H and M embark on a globe-trotting adventure to save the agency — and ultimately the world — from their mischievous plans.

The Nancy Drew Files #1


1. Secrets Can Kill (June 1986)

Plot: Nancy poses as a student and goes undercover to investigate a series of thefts at Bedford High.

Snarkified plot: Someone is stealing files and items at a a high school and the police don’t care. Let’s hire 18 year old Nancy Drew! And her car is red and not blue! Shameful. Some high schooler who was blackmailing the other students. He dies and case solved!!

But wait!

He also happened to be blackmailing a super hot student that Nancy makes out with for no real reason. Oh, a hot guy! Oh, she might leave her not quite boyfriend for hot guy! Oh, but wait, she’s just undercover as a high school student! It would never last. And OH NO, he might be a murderer! Oh, wait. He’s not. He’s just a Russian spy.

CASE SOLVED!

Turns out that she was just confused and that she loves Ned after all…

Verdict: LOL.

Friend Request (Book Review)


Yes, I read occasionally.

It’s not all hate-watching and looking at Japanese products over here.

It’s just mostly that.

This review is SPOILERY AF because I can’t stand it when I look up books specifically to find out what happens and the review is all vague but upset about the ‘twist’ (that they refuse to reveal!).

Summerland (WB)


In honour of Aunt Becky’s arrest* and charges, I thought I’d finally finish my review of Summerland, a show she co-created. I used to be obsessed with this show because I was obsessed with Jesse McCartney. Not even going to lie, I still listen to his music. Other noticeable people on the show are Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) and Zac Efron (High School Musical).

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Season 6)


Well. I figured I’d post something, but it’s not even snark. Sigh. What have I become?


B99/Season 6

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of those shows that works better when I watch it all in one go, but I’ve often found that the best way to determine how well a show works is to watch it week by week. Or maybe anticipation is what makes it good or bad? I don’t know, y’all.

Anyway, I watched the entire show during the time season 6 was airing. While I’d seen all of the seasons except half of season 4 and 5 before, it took watching the Backstreet Boys cold open for me to get back into it. That being said it reminds me of my all time favourite show, Happy Endings. I think during the early seasons it had the some of the same writers.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping


2016 | Synopsis

Childhood friends Conner (Andy Samberg), Owen (Jorma Taccone) and Lawrence (Akiva Schaffer) found fame and fortune after forming the hip-hop group the Style Boyz. Owen and Lawrence faded into the background when frontman Conner left the band to launch a successful solo career. Now, the egotistical singer decides to film a documentary about his life while he’s still on top. When his second album flops, the camera is there to capture his world come crashing down.

First of all….I’M A STYLE BOY 4 LIIIFE. 

Secondly, I was on the train listening to the soundtrack when hit me that Conner4Real = Conner Friel (which is the main character’s full name). I love wordplay.

Thirdly, I feel like The Lonely Island should be the ones to produce my Untitled Unrealistic Teen Drama. Guys, get on that. Skylet deserves to have her story told! This is also a shameless plug of my scripts because remember when I wrote scripts?! I reread them all and they were HILARIOUS. Especially because I remember exactly what inspired me to write them (hi, 90210!). I never did resolve the cliffhanger. Oh well. 

One day. 

Anyway, back to the movie. I actually liked this more than I thought I would? It was strangely watchable. I actually watched it three days in a row. 

It usually takes me three days to finish ONE movie. 

According to the five hundred interviews I watched, TLI were inspired by all of those pop documentaries that were all of the range five years ago. They watched Bieber’s, Katy Perry’s etc and took elements of each and created Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Oh and they parody a Macklemore song. 

I’m not going to recap the movie because it’s been done, but it ended up being a box office bomb. I can think of several reasons why. The first one being the terrible title. I mean, I get the title, but if I’m going to pay for a movie it needs to have a basic title. Like, Harry Potter is basically just Harry Potter. Nobody walked up to the kiosk and asked for Harry Potter and whatever else the long ass titles are. 

They should have just called it Popstar. It’s simple and to the point. 

The second reason is that the trailer didn’t really do it it justice. I actually saw the trailer back in 2016 (or whenever it was uploaded) because I’m subscribed to The Lonely Island’s YouTube channel and I thought it looked terrible. Too many celebrity cameos and too much Bieber impersonation. Up until my Brooklyn Nine-Nine rewatch, the movie never crossed my mind again. 

The third reason is that by the time it came out, The Lonely Island were kind of not all that relevant? Certainly not enough for a movie to make bank. I remember reading an article about the movie before it had a title and thinking that it was a few years too late. 

It turns out that their first movie Hot Rod met a similar fate (box office bomb) and I went and watched that and it was absolutely ridiculous and HILARIOUS, but would I go out and see it, probably not.

I think they’re more small screen entertainment than anything because you can rewatch it over and get the jokes you missed the first time.

Anyway, one major plus side is that they did all of the songs for the movie themselves and some are pretty good. I still listen to a few of them occasionally. 

I totally recommend the movie if crazy, ridiculous humour is your thing. 

Rating: 9/10

I was going to give it 10/10, but there was no Chris Hemsworth cameo and I get that he’s not a musician, but still. My aesthetic needs need to be met (see I can use words twice too!).

the unauthorised bash brothers experience


What’s up, snarklings?! It’s been a while…but I’m back with another mini-review of…

I read a review about this that called it ‘amazing television’ and that was a damn lie. 

It’s okay television. Or a visual poem as they’re calling it. Apparently, it’s a spoof of Beyonce’s Lemonade, which is something that I haven’t and probably will not see. 

It’s based on the ‘Bash Brothers’ two baseball players that were known for bashing their forearms together when they hit a home run. Oh, and apparently they both did a bunch of steroids. One revealed it publicly and they’ve been enemies ever since. 

I suppose you’ll either like this or you don’t. I was amused during some parts, but more in a WHY?! kind of way than a ha ha ha ha haaaa way. There are a bunch of 10/10 reviews on IMDB (which, of course, is known for its objectivity) and everyone loves it. 

When I finished watching it, my reaction was literally: okay

That was after I found myself jamming to “Let’s Bash’ which is the only song I liked from the album (it’s an album too!).

I like the first song too – “José and Mark” – but I’m not American and the baseball theme probably sailed directly over my head.

Oakland Nights is decent and it features Sterling K. Brown as Sia. For whatever reason, I didn’t find that particularly amusing. Maybe if it had been Sterling K. Brown as Gordon Walker (he’ll always be GW to me!) as Sia, it would have landed better for me, but meh. Humour is subjective. 

I think The Lonely Island are definitely better in small doses, but overall it was a fun watch. 

I’d give it a cool 6 outta 10.

7 Days In Hell 


7 Days In Hell | 2015 | HBO

Tennis champions Aaron Williams (Andy Samberg) and Charles Poole (Kit Harington) have an epic tennis match that lasts for seven days.

So, I’m a fan of Andy Samberg. I’m a fan of over the top comedy. I’m a fan of mockumentaries. I’m a fan of tennis. I am just not a fan of this movie. Apparently, they shot it in three days and — well, I don’t think it would make a difference. 

Technically, this movie has a great Rotten Tomatoes score, but it was very weird to me and basically not funny. It started off okay. I thought the reverse Blindside scenario – Aaron Williams being the adopted brother of Serena and Venus – was hilarious. 

The part where Aaron kills a man and doesn’t forfeit his match? Hilarious. He then quits tennis and the movie just sort of loses its steam for me there. 

It was like what happens to my stories when I get bored and just have a character do something they wouldn’t do and double down on that. Like a devout nun deciding to join Floyd Mayweather’s Money team. 
Those stories say hidden from society. They lie buried on a hard drive that I never use. This movie went on and on, like an overextended SNL sketch. Perhaps that was the problem. The joke wore thin by the end of the movie. By the time they *SPOILER ALERT* kill each other, I wasn’t even invested anymore. 

It’s also kind of off putting just how much some of these comedies make light of sexual harassment. I’m not even the most Me Too-ish person, but a lot of things are just not aging well. Some of these jokes aren’t really funny. 

Oh and a weird chunk of the movie is in a CGI Swedish male prison (insert obvious joke here – the movie certainly did!) and yeah. I like weird shit, but this was just wacky and tacky at the same time. 

Watch it if you dare!

Avengers: Endgame


People are annoying in general, but whenever things like Endgame come around, they seem to turn it up a notch.

I’m not the biggest MCU fan. I prefer the first two Thor movies over Ragnarok. I haven’t seen Infinity War (or half of the MCU movies). I have no plans to see Endgame in the near future and quite frankly, I am not interested in when anyone else plans to see it. I don’t get the hype. I feel like it’s a combination of FOMO and trend following because the way people go crazy over these films genuinely baffles me.
