Pretty Good Week...

This week was pretty uneventful other than catching a couple movies in the theatre and finally finishing Daredevil.

For some reason , I wanted to see the Victor Frankenstein movie. You know, the one starring Harry Potter (Danielle Radcliffe) as Igor and young Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) as Dr. Frankenstein. I've always been a fan of the classic monster stories, so I had to see this latest take on Frankenstein...I gotta say, it was pretty meh...I feel McAvoy tried too hard to put his take on Victor Frankenstein, and it felt completely overacted, and Harry Potter's (Daniel Radcliffe) acting talent was wasted on Igor. Visually, the movie was nice to look at, but the script bored me. And ***spoiler alert*** how did Frankenstein become a ninja so he can kill his creation? He spent the whole movie drunk and psychotic trying to play God, then bam, warrior! I dislike posting negatively, but I also hate being bored! There was a bright spot though, in the actress who played Lorelei, Jessica Brown Findlay. I expect to see her shine in GOOD movies in the not too distant future! I spent entirely too much time talking about that movie!

The disappointing film is ok though, because I watched Krampus as well. I'll admit that my expectations were a bit lower with this one, but whoa! It was surprisingly creepy and hilarious at the same time! I'm not overly familiar with the Krampus mythology, but this take on it was very well thought out and enhanced with the intereting plot turns and humor. Krampus was well casted for what it was...loved it...such a fun movie that should become a cult holiday classic! Go see it this holiday season!

Staying on the holiday topic, be sure to go back and look at the interesting projects we've shared. You might find some unique gift ideas: Check it out

I did finally finish Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix. I kind of put it off for a while because it started off so good that I hated the idea of finishing the season so fast! Season two is gonna be so good! I'm really looking forward to the introduction of the Punished, played by Jon Bernthal! Now I'm on to Jessica Jones, and so far, it's fantastic. David Tennant is terrifying as Kilgrave! Hats off to Marvel and Netflix on the great shows, and some of the best villains in the MCU!

That's my week in a nutshell. Stay tuned and keep on sharing. Were almost to 1000 followers on Twitter, so that means a giveaway once we make that milestone.
