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.

Final Grade D-

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.

Red Flags about Albus Dumbledore

Harry Potter: Why Michael Gambon Is The Best Dumbledore (& Why It'll Always  Be Richard Harris)

In the 4th Chapter of Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone, Hagrid name drops Albus Dumbledore for the first time. This Headmaster of Hogwarts is either senile or just plain picking favorites. Here are all the things that might cause Dumbledore to be in trouble.

Instances in Sorcerer’s stone

He allowed the Dursley’s to abuse Harry

Before we learn Harry is magical, Dumbledore leaves a freshly orphaned Harry on the doorstep of Vernon and Petunia. While they could easily lie to a social worker about Harry, Dumbledore could easily realize that Harry was being abused by his aunt and uncle and step in.

Taking advantage of Snape

While you can’t deny that Snape abused Harry just because he looked a lot like James. Dumbledore took advantage of Snape’s lust for Lily in order to employ him. Snape was probably guilt ridden about Lily’s death but because of the mudblood comment was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Allowing Harry to compete in the Tri Wizard Tournament

Dumbledore made it clear that he didn’t want anyone under 17 to compete. Yet after Harry’s name is pulled from the Goblet of Fire, he just goes whatever and allows him to compete. Even if he does question Harry in the beginning. The only one concerned for his safety is McGonagall. McGonagall puts it best in the movie that he’s not a piece of meat. Of course there’s the ultimate meme from the movie

HARREEE DIDJA PUIT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIUUURR!!

Not seeing through Barty Crouch’s Disguise

The biggest plot twist of Goblet of Fire is that Mad-Eye Moody is Barty Crouch Jr. in disguise. He should have been suspicious since he did the 3 unforgivable curses in classes.

Not vouching for Sirius Black’s innocence

This is a big one! He probably knew that Sirius was innocent, but why would he allow Peter Pettigrew to get off Scott Free? Harry went through hell and back during his time at Hogwarts. So why didn’t he protest for Sirius?

Giving Harry the Invisibility cloak

During his first year at Hogwarts, Harry is given the invisibility cloak by an unnamed gift giver. But giving an 11 year old a deathly hallow, dangerous!

Letting Harry get off scott-free with all his rule breaking

G-d knows how many rules Harry broke at Hogwarts. Chamber of Secrets is where he’s the worst but he and Ron get 200 points each for defeating the basilisk. McGonagall seems to call him out on it but lets him get away with it when necessary. Granted he was standing up for Neville when he was getting his rembrall from Malfoy.

Those are just some examples that come to mind. Let me know if there are some down in the comments I missed.

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

The Simpsons Theme Song [2008] – YouTube

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.

Cobra Kai so far so good and hopes for Season 4

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.
