Almost missed this week’s post because I didn’t plan for it, and then I had two mega long work shifts yesterday and today. But, not to worry, I borrowed some sleep time and got this list on your way (with minor problems) and Thursdays are still a go! Also, even though one of the picks isn’t necessarily a sequel, it’s still a follow-up so… it counts!
Isn’t every other movie an origin movie these days? With all those superhero movies coming at us from left to right, introducing characters with individual movies. The result, there are a lot of regular people becoming superheroes. With that in mind, I wanted to stay clear from all superheroes (didn’t manage completely) and pick movies that are a bit different and unique to the origin theme.
It has come to my attention that the year 2017 has almost hit its mid-point and with that in mind, I figured I’d recap what has happened movie wise this year so far. This post is inspired by the popular Mid-Year Book Freak Out tag that I’ve seen around in the book community but since I’m still all about being a movie blogger at heart, I decided to turn it into a Midyear Movie Madness instead. So this is a post that will recap the last 6 months of 2017 in terms of movies, and to make things more interesting, I’m only sticking to movies I saw in the theater!
There are a few spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned.
I recommend turning around in case you have not seen Split, because I’m going to spit out spoilers around every corner. It’s going to happen. I can not not do it without spoilers. So go ahead, leave now before I ruin the fundamental key element of cinematic brilliance that Split just created to every movie lover out there!
Seriously, I truly hope you have seen Split in case you’re going to continue because this is going to start off with a spoiler ….
Last week was mental. I had so many things to do and instead of resting today, I had a nail appointment and I took an extra shift for tonight. Granted, this extra shift tonight means free evening on Thursday so, I’m not really complaining! Haven’t seen any movies, not many shows, but I have read bunch of guilty pleasure books so at least I can say that last week wasn’t a total waste of my time.
