Stargirl Movie Review

Stargirl is a Disney+ exclusive movie for you guessed it. Disney+. To call this a movie is like calling Beyond or Impossible an actual meat. The book is very loosely based on Jerry Spinelli’s book of the same name. Here are some positives I will say. They did cast actual teenagers so you don’t have 20 somethings playing teenagers. The problem is the acting is garbage! This just seems to be 2 hours of blah so that the main female lead can sing on occasion. The message of be yourself is done millions of times better in so many other movies.

To anyone who enjoyed the book. Keep the images in your head. The movie has almost no soundtrack and basically it’s 2 hours of absolute nothing. Is it bad? Yes! Is it G-d Awful? No. Even though it’s not a good movie, it’s not harmless. All and all just read the book and forget about watching the movie.

Digimon Frontier Review

Digimon Frontier English Opening – YouTube

Digimon Frontier is probably the most hated Digimon Season. Though it does have its moments but it’s not entirely awful but it could be better. Watching this again made me smile though. Give it a watch and decide for yourself.

The Simpsons Season 29 Review

2 Actors on the Simpsons to play themselves and a fictional character are Mark Hamill and Daniel Radcliffe. Honestly, this season didn’t have a memorable episode. I wanted to like it but I didn’t. Not a single episode. Luckily I only spent two days on this season, Now I’m off to do something else because I have nothing nice to say about this season.

On being an autistic Jew: Realizing that I’m bisexual

It’s been a while since I posted one of these blogs but I decided that I wanted to do for all those who struggle with gender identity or sexual orientation. I believe that sexual orientation is not 100% all the time. For me being bi, it was something I noticed but didn’t act on. In college I had to take a human sexuality course and was in a dysfunctional relationship. I graduated college in 2014 with an associate’s and 10 leadership conferences under my belt. 3 years later I swam 2 miles and in Thanksgiving 2017 I started keeping track of the books I read.

One of the books I read was The Portrait of Dorian Gray. It’s about a good looking guy who commits countless sins. The more sins he commits the more his portrait decays. This was the book that reawakened my thoughts. I had to be absolutely certain. I interviewed my cousin Steven who I found out is gay after my aunt passed away. The things we have in common besides blood is our humor, love for Movies and Harry Potter.

After JK Rowling’s little transphobic rant, I realized that I am Bi and not just an ally. Sure I’m more attracted to women, but if I had a boyfriend it wouldn’t freak my friends who are conservatives out. As the time of this blog, I’m currently single. Telling my cousin was the easiest because even though he doesn’t live in Seattle,

I have received a little whiplash coming out but most of it has been positive. The hardest people to tell were my friend Nelson because he’s a registered Republican and one of my friends from my birthright tour. Luckily one of my friends I know from PR has been really helpful and just told me that if someone is cynical or skeptical about it, it’s on them.

Would I like to be dating again? Yes and no. I’m waiting until the pandemic dies down even further. Right now we’re in phase 3 here in Seattle As I wear glasses, this pandemic is a nightmare for me because the masks cause my glasses to fog up and trigger my claustrophobia.

I want to end this on a positive note, coming out as anything will show you who your real friends are. Just watch

The Simpsons Season 28 Review

This is the first season to have a two parter in a long time. Welcome my friends to history of the simpsons Season 28

This season gives us the cannon name for Spider-Pig. Plopper! It also gives us a two parter which was good. Overall, I thought this season was ok and I think the simpsons might just have their groove back!

The Simpsons Season 27 Review

Just as Moe is Hank Azaria imitating Al Pacino, Chief Wiggum is Hank Azaria imitating Edward G. Robinson. Welcome my friends back to another History of The Simpsons.

Simpsons Intro HD – YouTube

This season had one of the most game changing episodes in which Waylon Smithers came out as gay to Mr. Burns. The Simpsons going on vacation to the grand canyon and Lisa becoming a Broadway sensation While this season had plenty tp say sometimes it did fall flat but it’s starting to get its charm back. Besides the simpsons is a show that has been around for a long time.

Cobra Kai so far so good and hopes for Season 4

This blog is spoiler free so no worries.

Well after watching the first 3 seasons of Cobra Kai, I gotta say, yeah I’m on board! The Karate Kid 1 is a true underdog tale but Cobra Kai is really good at showing the grey area and shows that maybe Johnny’s not the bully you thought he was and Daniel wasn’t the perfect antagonist. Martin Kove who plays Kreese actually has a non profit to help prevent bullying and I want to acknowledge that.

The best part about this show is while it doesn’t necessarily redeem Johnny, it helps him grow and become a father to another student. There are lots of easter eggs thrown throughout. The first time I saw Karate Kid 1 was at a friend’s house. Even though I’m cisgender this part cracks me up

“Gender what? Hey, is this a prank call?” – Cobra Kai (S02E02) – YouTube

One of the biggest strengths of Cobra Kai is the diversity of the cast. It’s not white dominant and Hawk is definitely one of the best examples. He goes through a realization in Season 3 that’s hard to keep tight lipped but I will say this. Hawk does do the right thing.

So what are my hopes for season 4?

Since Thomas Ian Griffith retired from acting, Terry Silver isn’t coming back

Season 3 dived into Kreese’s backstory and I’d like to see more of that. Julie needs to come back to help guide Samantha. Samantha is a very divisive character and honestly her character needs to shape up. Both LaRousso kids do. Ok maybe I’m too hard on Sam but let’s just hope season 4 gives us some unpredictability.

What we REALLY need is a no holds match between Johnny and Daniel again. They’ve always had a fake out fight but that ends in someone breaking it up.

2020 Yearly Recap

Let’s face it, 2020 was a complete and utter shithole! With the pandemic going around, we’ve never seen anything like this. I had a relationship that lasted for a little bit but we didn’t have that much in common. At least I was able to come out as Bi after everything was said and done. I was also able to score the Gekiranger keys for my collection. I also got Shiny Hoenn for my collection. I’ve also reached 400 books. For Hanukkah I got $100 each to Amazon of which I was able to not only get this set of Monster Movies, I got the Abaranger keys. Plus getting a new dog was another great thing. I just hope 2021 will be so much better than this year.

Sam’s picks for Gellert Grindewald

Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I posted. For those of you who don’t know, I’m a potterhead. The fantastic beast movies are guilty pleasures of mine. Granted the Harry Potter movies are about a B average movie series but the books are pretty damn good. With Johnny Depp asked to resign by Warner Bros, here are my picks for who might be a good successor:

Mads Mikelsen

Ok this seems to be the popular choice and I’m happy to be on the bandwagon for this one. Mikelsen is killing it as Hannibal Lecter and would make a great addition to the series. Johnny Depp was just “Hey that’s Johnny Depp.” when he was playing Grindewald. I think that Mikelsen can show us what he’s got!

Daniel Bruhl

Daniel Bruhl was awesome as Zemo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but I have a feeling he’d be a great contribution. We’re looking for someone who’s in their 40s and 50s for Grindewald and I think he provides just the right intensity for the role

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender’s performance as Magneto was enough to convince me that he’d be awesome as Grindewald. Although those movies made him more of an anti-hero. I’m looking for actors who are European primarily so it’s not just an American cast.

Michael Cera

I’m kidding!
