Book Review: The Lunar Chronicles: Cress

                                                                 Cress Review
Cress is the third book of The Lunar Chronicles series and it's introduces us to our new heroine who is named Cress. Cress is a young Lunar woman who has been kept in satellite for years both because she's a shell(someone whom other Lunars can't manipulate) and she's an excellent hacker who Queen Levana's right hand woman has forced to hack into all sorts of earthen databases and she is tasked with locating Cinder. Since Cress doesn't agree with Levana or what she's doing to earth she doesn't tell anyone when she locates Cinder's ship but instead she contacts Cinder and her crew and pretty much asked them to rescue her and they agree since she's the reason no one has found their ship yet.

The rescue mission ends up going very wrong when one of Cress's capturers finds out about it and uses it to set a trap for Cinder. The botched rescue mission leaves the group split up with Cinder, Wolf and Iko still together but with Wolf badly injured, Scarlet captured by the Lunars and Cress and Thorne almost being killed as the crash land in the middle of the desert. The book primarily deals with the group being a part with each other with Cinder thinking that Thorne and Cress are dead and that she has no idea how to save Scarlet or what her next move in general should be other than being determined to stop the wedding between Kai and Levana. Cress and Thorne do their best to survive in the desert which is made even more difficult then it would have been since Thorne is now blind since he banged his head in their crash landing to earth and Cress has never been to earth before so she may not be the best guide but the two of them make it work and look out for each other the best they can. Scarlet who see on Lunar a couple more times but not much of anything is really resolved in her storyline but we do get our first look at the Lunar princess Winter who is the lead of the next book.

The relationship between Cress and Thorne is one that a really liked with Cress being so sweet and innocence and Thorne being the somewhat self center but ultimate lovable and charming criminal that won us over last book, I just enjoy the way they contrast with each other and the different sides they bring out in each other. Cress makes Thorne more caring and selfless although I don't think he realizes it yet and Thorne makes Cress braver with how he encourages her when she's overwhelmed by new situations or discouraged by seemingly hopeless ones.

This book was great it had a great set of characters to follow and the story that was told was very interesting and I felt that so much happened in such a short amount of time which made this an exciting read. Overall I loved this book and I can't wait to read the next one. Please tell me your thoughts on this book.

TV Review: Revenge: Two Graves(4.23)

                                                  Revenge: Two Graves(4.23)Review
  • I liked that the episode started with flashback of young Emily and her dad that was similar to the ones that we use to see on season one which I thought was a nice touch.
  • I do think it makes a poetic type of sense that Victoria is planning to start a new life under a false name much like Emily did but I don't think that her plan is as well made as Emily's was.
  • I found it surprising and a bit disturbing that Victoria passed her mother's corpse off as her own because even though the two of them had an awful relationship that is still something that I feel like crosses some sort of line.
  • I liked that Emily plead guilty to killing Victoria in order to move into a prison that Nolan made plans of how to get one of them out of there in case something like this happened.
  • I liked that David questioned what Emily was doing when she plead guilty and that when she indicated that she wasn't going to tell him what she was up to since she knew their conversation is being recorded and that he didn't care about that but Emily was still unwilling to tell him anything because she doesn't want him to get hurt trying to protect her.
  • The flashback scene with Victoria and her mother made me fell bad for Victoria because as awful as a person as she is her mother is much worse and probably has a whole lot to do with why Victoria is the way she is.
  • I liked that Nolan and Jack met up with Emily after she escaped from prison and basically promised to follow her until the bitter end.
  • I thought that is pretty bold of Victoria to go to her own funeral but I agree with Louise that Victoria is being way too reckless considering her situation.
  • I'm not surprised that Charlotte and Patrick didn't show up to Victoria's funeral because she's really hasn't been the greatest mother.
  • I think that Victoria wanting to tell Louise that she's still alive has more to do with the fact that she wants to be around someone who thinks world of her rather than wanting to make sure that Louise isn't mourning her when she doesn't have to.
  • I like that Margaux doesn't want there to anymore blood shed but I dislike that she lets Victoria talk her into hiring that hit woman again to go after Emily.
  • I liked that both Emily and Jack thought that it was beyond messed up that Victoria used her mother's body to fake her own death.
  • I like that Emily went out in a disguise and found the evidence she needed in order to prove that Victoria switched the bodies.
  • I liked that when Nolan found out that Margaux hired someone to take Emily out that he called her right a way and told her to get somewhere where she would be safe.
  • I liked that Jack almost died because of his relationship with Emily because I feel like Jack dying because of his involvement with Emily is something that makes narrative sense and I think that him dying in end would have fit the theme of the show better than a happy ending but I'm also glad that Jack didn't die because he means so much Emily and Nolan so I don't want them to go through the pain of loosing him.
  • I was surprised that when Emily told Nolan that she was going to kill Victoria that Nolan didn't try to stop her because he also have tried to stop her from killing in the past but that just goes to show how much hurting Jack crosses a line for these two.
  • I liked that when Nolan told Emily that he was going after the hit woman that Emily told him that she was too dangerous and that Nolan told her that learned how to be dangerous from Emily, I found that scene oddly sweet.
  • I loved that Louise told Emily and Nolan where to Victoria because Victoria being willing to fake her own death in order to make Emily spend life in prison for a crime she didn't commit showed Louise Victoria's true colors finally.
  • I liked that Nolan confronted Margaux with pictures of Ben's body in order to show her that she was guilty for his death because she hired his killer and I liked that when she tried to say that he wasn't better than her that Nolan pointed out that she crossed a line that he would never and new someone is dead because of her and someone that she once cared about is in critical condition. I liked that Nolan was able to use Margaux's guilty in order to get her to help him take down the hit woman.
  • I liked that Louise got to confront Victoria about how she has been using her as a pawn this entire time and that she told Victoria that she hurt her, I also liked that she said Victoria has hurt Emily much more.
  • I like that Margaux decided that she would let herself go down for her crime of hiring the hit woman in order to redeem her soul even though Nolan had already erased all the records her involvement.
  • I liked how when Victoria said that Emily has never been able to pull the trigger that Emily told her that she much preferred that the people who destroyed her life live in agony rather than pay with their lives although seems Victoria is exception.
  • I thought it was pretty sad and messed up that Victoria has consider herself dead for longer than Emily has even been alive.
  • I liked that David shot Victoria so that Emily wouldn't have to. I liked that he saved her from having to kill someone and from being sent to jail for the rest of her life by making sure that he would go instead.
  • I like that in flash forward it seems that Emily and Charlotte are close in a way that I always hoped they could be.
  • It was heartbreaking to see Emily have to loose her father all over again especially since this time we know she won't get him back.
  • I liked how Emily and Nolan talked about how all of this started and I liked how Nolan told Emily that working on revenge gave him a purpose and that when he wonder if he'll find one again that she told him that of course he would.
  • I think that Emily and Jack ending up happily married isn't really an ending that suits the series as a whole but I didn't completely hate it either but I think there could have been an ending that suited the tone and theme of the series better.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode and the series as a whole.

TV Review: Timeless: Space Race(1.08)

                                           Timeless: Space Race(1.08)Review
  • I disliked that Flynn killed a guy in 1969 in order to get access to NASA's mission control center on the day of the moon landing but I like that Anthony seems clearly bothered by the act as well.
  • I was surprised to learn that Anthony was the one who would be using the badge that Flynn and his guys killed the man for because he's usually the one who takes on the most important part of his plans so him trusting Anthony with this was a surprise.
  • I like that Rufus is still clearly worried about Anthony and is worried about how Flynn might be using him.
  • I liked that when Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus got their badges that would get them into NASA that both Lucy and Rufus were disappointed about the IDs the were given with Lucy being a secretary and Rufus being a janitor although Rufus was more resigned to his role than Lucy was.
  • I liked that Rufus was both awestruck and terrified to be in the control room during the first moon landing with so many people whom he considers his heroes because while it's amazing to be there it's also terrifying because Flynn could do something that can destroy all the progress to the scientific field that was made that day and by the people in that room after that day.
  • I don't understand why Flynn and Anthony felt that they needed to interfere with the moon landing in order to get some code but by bring down the computers on this day this doesn't only destroy a huge advance in science it also puts people lives in danger for reasons I can't understand.
  • I liked that when Rufus confronted Anthony that he told him if he is willing to go along with Flynn with leaving them for dead and destroying a piece of history that means so much to the both of them than he's no better than Flynn and he doesn't get to say it's not him anymore because his actions have shown that this is who he is now.
  • I find it interesting that as Lucy explains that America having a successful moon landing is something that stopped the Russians from furthering the missile program and therefore if it isn't a success it means that a lot of things would change in history for the worst.
  • I liked that it was decided that Rufus and Lucy would work on a way to successfully get the astronauts safely back home and that Wyatt would look into Maria who is a woman who works a company that helped develop the technology that made space travel possible who Flynn has taken an interested in.
  • I liked how Lucy and Rufus talked about how they live really strange lives right after Wyatt leaves.
  • I find it interesting that Flynn seems to think that Anthony letting Rufus keep the briefcase was a mistake but the fact that Anthony believes that it won't help because Rufus doesn't know how to work computers this old and because doesn't work well under pressure.
  • I find it interesting that Anthony was the first person to ever time travel and that trip went badly enough that he had to stay in the hospital for seven months and that Rufus visited him every day and he was happy to do so because Anthony was his friend and mentor. The fact that Anthony went through something similar to the first astronauts and he was still leaving them for dead is something that Rufus can't understand and is now making him believe that he's never knew Anthony at all.
  • I liked that Rufus realized that the smartest person and the best chance at saving the mission was Catherine Johnson a brilliant mathematician who has kept in the basement because she was a black woman but who was a big part of making space travel possible. She's also someone that Rufus and Lucy can approach more easily than most to ask for her help.
  • I like how Wyatt's cover as an FBI agent is making it a bit easier for him to ask people about Flynn and in trying to find Maria before Flynn does.
  • I find Flynn oddly charming when he was talking to Maria and while part of me is freaked out by it since this is probably part of one of his plans I also like that we're given the chance to see a kinder softer side of him.
  • I liked that after Rufus wrote out an extremely long math equation and told Catherine about the computer virus that she believed he wasn't just a janitor but she is now suspicious of who he and Lucy really. I liked that Catherine agreed to help them because she too cares a great deal about saving the astronauts and understands how telling the people higher up is something they can't do because they can't explain who they really are and why they should listen to them.
  • I dislike how Maria unknowingly encourages Flynn to not give up on his vendetta because she couldn't see herself resting until the people who killed her son paid for what they done if she was ever in Flynn's situation although she has no idea how far he has already taken things.
  • I felt bad for Wyatt when he lost track of Flynn because a cop asked him to move out of the way which gave Flynn the time to disappear without Wyatt seeing where he was going.
  • I liked that after Catherine pointed out that she doesn't have a real reason to trust Rufus and that she's putting her career at risk by helping him that Rufus told her that he admires her and looks up to her just as much as the astronauts and the guys in mission control.
  • I liked that Lucy stood up to this guy who kept calling her doll and demanding she makes coffee for him.
  • I liked that when Anthony came in to try and stop Rufus, Catherine and Lucy from saving the astronauts that Rufus tried one last time to appeal to Anthony's humanity and when that didn't work he ended up shooting Flynn's other henchman that came with Anthony and then him that he doesn't know him anymore.
  • I liked that both Rufus and Lucy thanked Catherine for her help before they left because they know they couldn't have done it without her.
  • I liked that Catherine was able to in the control room during the mission was given a bit of the appreciation that she deserves.
  • I liked that it turned out that Flynn's interest in Maria was because she's his mother and that he made sure that her son his half brother lived instead of died that day.
  • I liked how Lucy was upset that while she and Wyatt both want to save their love ones they can't but Flynn just does it and it turns out fine and she just finds this so frustrating.
  • I liked that Lucy went to Rufus to see if he was okay with everything because he had to kill someone today and I liked that Rufus feels fine but that worries him because he feels that he shouldn't feel okay after he killed a man.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: Notorious: Kept and Broken(1.06)

                                        Notorious: Kept and Broken(1.06)Review
  • I liked that when Oscar asked Julia to up him on her show in order to reveal how Jake slept with Sarah the night before she died that Julia gave Jake the heads up before she aired the interview.
  • I like that Julia's boss wanted her to get an exclusive interview with the parents of a missing girl and since her parents are Jake's clients it's something Julia think should be no problem as does Jake but the girl's parents want to go a rival show with an unstable show because they're offering them money for the interview that they need to fund the search for their daughter.
  • I like that Jake doesn't think that it's a good idea because he doesn't know how the other show works and knows that the host is very unpredictable and he knows how important this interview is.
  • I think Jake is insanely confident in is abilities as a lawyer when he basically told Oscar that he had to rehire him and that Oscar agreed to it.
  • I liked that when Julia couldn't get the one missing girl parents so she found another missing girl that wasn't getting any media attention.
  • I found it very surprising that the first missing girl was working on a site where she would strip in front of a camera for guys to get off on, the fact that her friend told the show that the girl's parents were going on that she did this seems like a bad idea.
  • I was surprised to learn that Sarah had a baby in the past and I kind of agree with Oscar the more that we learn about Sarah I it seems like no one really knew her.
  • I liked that Julia found a video that showed the second girl being threatened by some man and it reveals that the fast food place that is involved in dealing drugs.
  • I felt bad for the first girl and her loved ones when the news host revealed that she cam girl online even knowing that actually decreases the chances of her being found alive.
  • I liked that it turned out the second missing girl's boyfriend isn't the one that killed or took her but that he's trying to raise enough money to raise her ransom.
  • I was glad that the second missing girl was found and she was safe and sound in the end and I was sad that the same can't be said about the first girl.
  • I was surprised when Jake was arrested for Sarah's murder and it's really looking like someone set him up.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: Scream: The Vanishing(2.10)

                                              Scream: The Vanishing(2.10)Review
  • I liked that the Sheriff told Emma's mom that she didn't have to be the one that cut open Piper's body since he knows that it must be hard for her since Piper was her daughter after all, I also found it creepy that someone put a pig heart inside of her body.
  • I liked that Emma was actually willing to try and talk to Audrey in order to find out what she really knew about Piper but I was sad that she seemed to already decide that Audrey brought Piper to town to hurt her and for no other reason and that just made me feel bad for Audrey because she is being honest with Emma it just that Emma doesn't like what Audrey is telling her.
  • I was a surprised to learn that Brandon James could possibly still be alive and that the Sheriff and Emma's mom knew each other when they were in high school.
  • I liked how when Zoe wasn't in school that Noah called her and left her a message telling her how he missed her school and was a bit concerned that she wasn't in class because she is always in class. I thought that the message was sweet but dorky and I loved it but had a feeling that something bad had already happened to her and that was confirmed when Noah was led into the woods by text messages that came from her phone.
  • I felt like it took Noah quite a long time to figure out that something weird was going on but I understand why he wouldn't let his brain go to believing Zoe has already been captured or killed by the killer because he doesn't want it to be true.
  • I actually quite enjoyed the conversation that the killer had on the phone with Noah with how the killer called himself a long listener first time caller and mention the horror movie rule about how once you have sex you die and I liked how Noah said that was an outdated trope and I liked that the only reason that Noah stayed in the woods with and on the phone with him was because he was led to believe that there was a chance he could save Zoe.
  • I was really worried about Noah when the killer stabbed in the woods where there is no one around and no one knows that he is out there.
  • I liked that even though things are bad between Emma and Audrey at the moment that when Audrey noticed that Noah was missing she still went to Emma and that Emma was still concerned about Noah.
  • I like that the killer is forcing Emma and Audrey to work together in order to find and save Noah but I have a feeling that in the end this isn't going to work out in the killer's favor.
  • Honestly seeing Noah buried alive in a coffin were he could very easily slowly suffocate to death was very uncomfortable for me to watch and freaked me out more than anything else that has been  on this show so far because suffocating to death slowly is one of my biggest fears.
  • I liked how once Noah saw that he was being recorded he tried to give clues as to where find him  to anyone who was watching the stream and I liked that he also mentioned that Zoe was in danger and he hopes that someone could rescue her too.
  • I liked that when Noah realized that maybe the killer is the one who is watching him and only recording him to torment his friends later that he said that he wasn't going to freak out because he didn't want to give the killer the sastifaction even though he was terrified.
  • I thought that it was extra cruel that the killer made Noah listen to Zoe suffering while he was buried and helpless to do anything to help her and that this is what makes him start to really panic.
  • I liked that Emma wanted to at least tell the Sheriff because that just seems like the smart thing to do in this type of situation but I completely understand why Audrey was unwilling to risk it because she has tried to out smart this killer before and someone died because of this which is why Emma agrees to not tell anyone about Noah.
  • I think it's cruel how the killer is giving Emma and Audrey cryptic riddles as clues on how to find Noah.
  • I felt bad for Emma when she found an old letter that Audrey wrote to Piper on a back of one of the killer's clues that was clearly written when Audrey was very angry at Emma for abandoning her and replacing her with new friends.
  • I have a feeling that Audrey meeting Emma held more meaning to her than it did for Emma because Audrey remembered the place that they first met based off of just a flower whiled Emma was clueless about what it meant until Audrey told her.
  • I liked how when Noah started hallucinating Zoe was buried with him he at first pointed out how he knew she wasn't really here with him because it's illogical but that he let himself be comforted by her because that's what he needed in the moment even if she wasn't really there.
  • I liked how we learned that Audrey lost her mother to an illness when she was young and that the staples that her and Emma always went to when they were children was the only place that made her feel okay during that time.
  • I found it really sad that when Noah's hallucination of Zoe left him and realized once again that he was alone and Zoe was in danger he was devastated even though part of his brain knows that she was never really there.
  • I understand why Emma is mad that Audrey is still keeping secrets from her but considering how badly Emma is taking anything Audrey confesses to her I can't blame Audrey for not telling her anything isn't a hundred percent necessary for her to know.
  • I liked that Audrey figured out that the killer that they are against now has to have been working with Piper the first time Around because that's the only thing that makes sense.
  • I thought that it was pretty bold of the killer to call the Sheriff and tell him where he may find the next victim.
  • I thought it was sad how when Noah was on the verge of death that he was making plans of a life together with Zoe.
  • I was both surprised and not surprised when Audrey told Emma that she broke her heart without even realize it because I always felt that there was something more then friendship between them but I also thought that maybe I was just reading too much into things so I wasn't sure until Audrey told Emma this.
  • I was so relieved that Audrey and Emma were able to save Noah from dying in just the knick of time but horrified to learn that there was a recording that showed that Zoe was also buried alive.
  • I liked that Emma and Audrey tried to convince Noah to go to the hospital in order to get treated for his wounds but he refused because he wanted to safe Zoe first and the killer said no cops so that also means no going a hospital.
  • I was really sad when it turned out Zoe had been dead for hours by the time they got to the lake she was buried in and that the recording wasn't live like Noah has been which is extra cruel since the killer made it seem like they could save her when they never really had a chance.
  • I liked that Emma held Audrey's hand for a moment indicating that she now forgives her and I liked that when the killer called her that she told him that her and Audrey are going to make sure that he looses in the end.
  • I thought it was sad how Emma blamed herself for Zoe dying because the killer is after her and Audrey and that she feels like it's on her to end things and I liked how her mom told her that it isn't on her.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1

                                     A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Review
The Netflix original series, A Series of Unfortunate Events is based off of books of the same name which I was a big fan of and the series follows the same basic plot. The series is about three orphans Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire who after their parents die in a fire they are forced to live with an evil man named Count Olaf who is only after their family inheritance. The series covers the first four books of the book series in the first they are forced to live with Count Olaf, in the second they live with a kind herpetologist named Montgomery Montgomery they find short lived happiness while staying with him, in the third they stay with Josephine a woman who is afraid of almost everything and loves grammar and in the finally episodes they end up staying in a lumbar mill.

The Baudelaire children doing their best to prove Count Olaf's wickedness by using their special skills sets and learning that the only people in the world they can relay is each other is basically what this series as a whole is about and it's a premise I find I enjoy. I liked seeing how all of the children's skills would help them out in some ways with Violet and her inventing, Klaus and his reading and Sunny and her biting skills that are unrealistic in a way that perfectly suits the tone of the strange world that this series exist in.

The whole story of this series is narrated by Lemony Snicket who feels that this story is one that the audience should find upsetting and he often suggests that you would be better off watching something happier but feels that it is his duty to chronicle what happened to the Baudelaire children. One thing that I was surprised this series was able to do was to translate Lemony Snicket's narration into the show and I'm glad to see that they were able to fit it in so well, I loved that this series felt so much like the books did.

The biggest change between the books and the Netflix series is that the Netflix series was able to introduce the idea of VFD much earlier than the books did which makes the Baudelaire's choice of guardians make a bit more sense because it's all connected to something bigger since the start of the series. Overall I loved the series it set up the world, tone, dark sense of humor, characters and plot in the same way that the books did and since I loved them I also love this series. Please tell me your thoughts on this series.

TV Review: Sweet/Vicious: The Writing on the Wall(1.02)

                             Sweet/Vicious: The Writing on the Wall(1.02)Review
  • I liked how the episode started with Jules and Ophelia in a graveyard after dumping the body surrounded by cops and I liked how when Jules got a text from Tyler that Ophelia told her to read so that it would distract them from what is going on.
  • I liked that things then went to 24hours earlier which is the end of last episode which is when they find Ophelia's car and the body missing although luckily it is only because Ophelia parked in a loading zone and their car has been towed.
  • I liked that when Jules tried to ask suri how long it takes for a body to start smelling on her phone that Ophelia smacked it out of her hand and told her not to do those type of things on an unsecure network.
  • I liked that when they found out that they needed two thousand dollars in order to get Ophelia's car back that Jules thought she might as well just call her dad and tell him she's going to jail while Ophelia told her she got this covered and then goes into the record store that Harris works at and starts getting her stash money to use to pay for the car.
  • I liked that Harris wondered if Jules was Ophelia's girlfriend rather than just a friend.
  • I liked that when Ophelia mentions that even after she took all the money from the register they're still five hundred short and then Jules mentions the sorority has a fund for party supply that they can use which Ophelia calls a drug fund although Jules disagrees.
  • I liked that Kennedy was really worried about Jules didn't come home the night before.
  • I was surprised to learn that Jules's dad is a cop and that he asked one of the local cops to look after her so she has a good relationship with the cops which helps them get Ophelia's car back more easily.
  • I liked that when Ophelia saw a girl who clearly had been raped but was ignored by the school and it looks like the cops are going to too that she starts thinking that maybe her and Jules should help her.
  • I liked that apparently Ophelia suggested dissolving the body in acid multiple times.
  • I liked that the girls are going to bury the body in a graveyard because that is actually a pretty good idea.
  • I liked that when Jules had problems with getting out of Ophelia's car that Ophelia said that she can't believe that Jules is a vigilante.
  • I like that Kennedy is a bit worried about Jules hanging out with Ophelia because Ophelia is a drug dealer.
  • I liked that Jules went on a date with Tyler an hour before she and Ophelia planned to get rid of the body so that Kennedy and the other girls at the house wouldn't get suspicious.
  • I liked that although Ophelia seems to not really be taking things seriously that it's clear she affected by killing a guy because she keeps seeing that guy dying but the way she chooses to deal with that is looking up information on the next guy for Jules to take down.
  • I liked how Jules and Tyler bonded over them both loosing a parent when they were young.
  • I liked how Kennedy called Ophelia over and asked her about what she is doing with Jules because she is worried about Jules and I liked that Ophelia told Kennedy that she steals test to take them not answer keys to cheat on test.
  • I liked that Ophelia causally did a drug deal at the record store and then lied to Harris about doing it.
  • I liked that when Jules started freaking out because Nate was there that Ophelia noticed and made the two guys leave right away.
  • I liked that Jules told Ophelia that they had to remove the teeth and the hands because that is how bodies are identified.
  • I liked that Ophelia now knows that Jules has yet to go after her rapist.
  • I liked that the cops came to the graveyard because of frat boys and not because they were getting rid of body so they were able to get away with it in the end.
  • I felt bad for Harris when he was arrested for no real reason and I agree with him that it was because of racism but at least he now has a topic for his paper.
  • I was sad when Jules pretty much told Ophelia that they're not friends and she never wants to see her again but I can understand why Jules wants things to go back to normal now that someone has died.
  • I liked that Ophelia realized that Jules's friends have no idea what happened to her and that she is trying to be there for Jules.
  • I liked that Ophelia and Jules both come to the conclusion by the end of the episode that they need to keep doing it although for different reason.
  • I liked how when Ophelia showed Jules the wall in the girls bathroom that has the names of a bunch of girls rapist on it that Jules adds the name of hers.
  • I liked that the episode ended with Jules and Ophelia doing their first official takedown together.
Please tell me your thoughts on the episode.

Movie Review: Suicide Squad

                                                        Suicide Squad Review
Suicide Squad is about how Amanda Waller(Viola Davis) an intelligence official decides to make a team of criminals work for her in order to take on missions that are high risk and possibly illegal because no one really cares much what happens to criminals. The team is made up of  Deadshot(Will Smith) an expert marksmen and assassin who despite his criminal lifestyle does love his daughter and wants her to have the best life possible, Harley Quinn(Margot Robbie) a former psychiatrist of the Joker who she fell in love with and he drove her crazy and to become his partner in crime, El Diablo(Jay Hernandez)  a former gangster who has the ability to produce fire but refuses to use since an accident with it ended up killing his family, Captain Boomerang a thief that uses boomerangs as a weapon and Killer Croc who is half man, half crocodile. The team are supervised on their mission by Rick Flag(Joel Kinnaman), an army special forces member and Katana(Karen Fukuhara) a master swordswoman whose sword traps the souls of her victims.

The team's mission in this film is to take down Enchantress(Cara Delevingne)  who is an immortal witch who is possessing the body of an archeologist named June Moon and was under the control of Waller for months before the movie started but has only now found a way to break free of her control and now wants to destroy world now that she's free. The team reluctantly fulfill their mission since they are forced to but they do began to care at least a little bit about the mission and each other throughout the film.

I overall really liked the movie I thought that it had an interesting plot and characters which I found myself engaged with throughout the film. The characters that I ended up liking the most were Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Katana and El Diablo. I also thought that the film had very interesting look to it as well. Overall I really liked this movie even though that's apparently not a popular opinion. Please tell me your thoughts in the comment section below.

TV Review: Teen Wolf: Superposition(6.02)

                                           Teen Wolf: Superposition(6.02)Review
  • I found it creepy how the ghost riders went right past Scott and Liam when they were on the lacrosse field without them even seeing them although Scott did sense that something was off.
  • I liked that when Scott was saying that Liam's back shots suck and Liam proved that they didn't that Scott said that it must be someone else and I like that the someone else is probably Stiles because it shows that Scott still remembers things about him even if he doesn't remember who those things are about.
  • I like that Scott is helping Liam train in order for him to become captain next year for longer than the lights on field stay on.
  • I liked how Mason came with Cory to help him out with his extra credit physics project and I just adore the cute moments they share together.
  • I liked how when Coach went into the classroom and saw the group of the kids doing extra credit physics project that he kicked them out of the school and told Mason and Cory that your teens aren't the time to worry about academic achievements and that they should go raise some havoc like normal teenagers, I just find Coach to be very strange but also hilarious.
  • I find interesting a bit worrying that Cory can see the ghost riders when he is invisible and now I'm a bit worried about Cory and Mason because they have seen the ghost riders but hopeful different rules apply since they were invisible when they saw them.
  • I liked that Liam could just sense that something was wrong with Mason and that him and Scott ran off to make sure that he was okay.
  • I find it really freaky that Mason and Cory couldn't even remember that they saw the ghost riders made someone disappeared right in front of their eyes.
  • I found the scene with Malia sleeping with a guy and then making him be the little spoon to be a bit random but also kind of funny especially when he wondered about the chains and she told him not worry about it.
  • I found it interesting how Lydia had a vision of train station that shook her bed and maybe even heard Stiles voice right before that, I like that it seems Lydia's banshee powers her telling her where Stiles is now that he disappeared even though she doesn't know that she should be looking for him right now.
  • I liked that when Lydia went to school she was drawn to an unused locker that probably used to be Stiles old locker.
  • I liked that when Liam showed up late that both Scott and Coach remarked upon it and I liked that when Coach said that made Liam not captain material that Scott said that Liam is definitely captain material.
  • I found it funny that the Coach called Scott selfish for wanting to focus on his grades graduating rather than being lacrosse captain because Scott is so not selfish for this or just in general.
  • I felt bad for Liam when he didn't do a good job at proving himself while trying out for being captain.
  • I liked that Cory and Mason both felt that there was something that they weren't remembering about the ghost riders from the night before and they figured out that ghost riders did take someone but they just can't remember it.
  • I liked how Scott told Liam that he can see that Liam isn't really trying his hardest and that's why he doesn't have a real chance at being captain.
  • I liked that when Liam asked Scott why he can't stay captain that Scott tells him that he's graduating soon and that someone will have to step up and take his place and how he thinks that Liam is the one that can do it. I liked that Scott started talking about how being a leader means that people are going to keep coming after you and keep knocking you down and if you don't truly want it you won't be able to do the job, I liked that by this point it became clear that Scott is talking more about being an alpha rather than being team captain.
  • I liked how Malia marked the word style in her text book with a red highlighter because she no longer know who Stiles is she feels the need to mark just that one word in red.
  • I liked that we saw Malia loose a bit of control in class when her claws came out in class because her anchor her humanity was Stiles and she no longer even knows who he is so it makes sense that her control has worsen again.
  • I liked how Scott was also drawn to the empty locker that was probably Stiles before he disappeared.
  • I liked how Lydia noticed a doctor lady in the classroom and that when she tried to talk to her she heard the train again which is definitely making Lydia curious about what is going on.
  • I find it a bit ridiculous that Lydia's mom is claiming that Beacon Hills high school is a safe place because it just isn't people's lives are constantly in danger there.
  • I liked that when Lydia followed the doctor lady outside that she able to partially remember when Stiles was taken and that she now at least knows she needs to remember someone. I also liked that Malia saved Lydia when she almost walked into traffic.
  • I found it a bit funny how Parrish considers any murder not involving the supernatural to be an open and shut case in comparison.
  • I feel bad for Mason with having Liam not liking or trusting Cory and Cory being okay with that while he wants his boyfriend and best friend to be able to get along.
  • I like that Scott went to Deaton about how he feels like their are holes in his memories now with how he has the window shield glass but he has no idea why he went to the place to get the window shield glass because his whole reason to go their was basically Stiles asked him to come and he can't remember Stiles right now.
  • I like how Deaton said that what Scott is going through is similar to phantom limb syndrome and that he told Scott that his subconscious is trying to tell him something and that the best why to figure out what that is, is go to sleep.
  • I like how Malia realizes that she is beginning to loose the control that she once had and that she realized that someone had to lock her up and stay with her on the full moon nights and she knows that Lydia and Scott weren't with her but she wasn't alone, she couldn't be alone, I like that Malia knows that someone who is very important to her is missing from her life.
  • I liked that Scott called Lydia and Malia out the part in the woods where he was bitten and I liked how he kept pointing out that things about how he got there, how he knew there was a dead body out there in the first place and why the Sheriff was sure that he was there. I liked that all the things that he remembered that didn't make sense made him believe that he wasn't out there alone but that he was out there with his best friend.
  • I liked that Scott believing he had a best friend made sense to Lydia and Malia because they also know that they are missing someone too with Malia not remembering who use to help her through her shifts and Lydia knowing she was suppose to meet someone but she doesn't remember who and she thinks she may have loved him.
  • I liked that Cory and Liam agreed to work together because neither of them want to loose Mason so they figure that they need to find a way to work together.
  • I was surprised that Mrs. Stilinski was alive now but since Stiles was probably the main reason the Sheriff was able to pull himself together after her death it makes sense the that ghost riders would put her there as a place holder now that Stiles has been erased.
  • I liked that Liam and Cory were able to find the library card and find out who it belonged to and that along with Mason they all now remember the guy that was erased the night before.
  • I liked that Liam experience with Cory made him really want to be team captain and that when coach asked him what changed his mind he said that he held a guy's hand and Coach just said I get that.
  • I liked that Deaton set Lydia up with an automatic writing exercise in order to see what she could remember about who she's missing.
  • I liked that Lydia wrote Stiles made out of a lot of the worried mischief(which I guess means that she thinks Stiles is mischievous which is fair) and I liked how she said the line "What the hell is a Stiles?" like she said back in early season one because she couldn't be bothered to remember who was and now she's desperately trying to remember him.

TV Review: Notorious: Missing(1.05)

                                                Notorious: Missing(1.05)Review
  • I like that Julia is clearly effected by seeing Levi kill himself at the end of last episode and seems to feel guilty now that killed himself because of how her show reported a story that drove him to it.
  • I like that Jake and Julia seem to be a bit at odds with how to deal with Levi's suicide with how Jake's using it as a way to prove Oscar's innocence and Julia is more trying to make things right by Levi now that she feels somewhat responsible for Levi's death.
  • I liked that we learned that Jake was adopted after he takes case where a young woman is a surrogate mother for a couple we backed out of the deal at the last moment.
  • I liked that DA isn't really interested in being on Julia's show and that she spends quite a bit of time convincing him to be on the show.
  • I liked that the judge found the surrogate agency to be kind of suspicious with how the agency has the surrogates go to another country to get impregnated but sadly the law still seemed to be in the surrogate agency favor.
  • I liked that after Julia played that video of Levi on the show that the DA called her out for possibly driving a man to suicide, witness his suicide and then the next day run his name through the mud again.
  • I liked that Jake talked to Julia the next day about what happened on her show the day before and that he pointed out that her show was solid before she put up the video but that a solid show just isn't goo enough she needs something more.
  • I liked that Jake used Julia's show in order to find the biological parents of the surrogate's baby and I was surprised to learn that the baby were actually adopted by another couple that isn't the biological parents and that they were told that the surrogate was miscarried and that they paid 200,000 when the surrogate was only getting 50,000 dollars.
  • I was glad that in the end that the baby went to the adopted parents who will love and care for the baby.
  • I can't blame Oscar for firing Jake after finding out that he slept with his wife and now I'm just wondering if this will end up hurting Oscar or Jake more in the end.

TV Review: Revenge: Plea(4.22)

                                                      Revenge: Plea(4.22)Review
  • I like that Emily's lawyer tries to convince her to let him try to get a plea deal and I like that Emily refuses since she's not guilty of the crime their accusing her of.
  • I like that Nolan was able to track down Mason Treadwell by hacking into security feeds although he still needs to narrow down an exact location, I liked that Jack remarked that only Mason Treadwell would take a limo to a trailer park.
  • I like that Louise is setting up Victoria's funeral and that she's worrying about how Marguex isn't letting herself grieve.
  • I liked that when Emily was let out on bail and put on house arrest that Ben said that he chose this job because he knows that Emily is already trying to figure away off her monitor and he wants to be the one to tell her not to do it.
  • I like that Nolan was working on a way to hack into Emily's monitor so that she could leave without alerting the police that she left.
  • I like that Jack is involved in all this because he wants to help Emily out and that he's choosing to be a part of this, this time instead of being forced into a corner like he usually is.
  • I like that Emily is finally honest with Jack about she feels about him even though I don't ship the two of them together I'm glad that Emily's finally at the point when she can admit what she really wants.
  • I liked how Charlotte told Louise that she didn't want to go to Victoria's funeral and that her mother was the most manipulative person she had ever met and that she is now healthier than she had ever been.
  • I liked that Louise became slightly suspicious when Charlotte mentioned that Victoria faked her own death before.
  • I liked that David tried to stop Emily from going looking for Mason because he knows that she would get caught but I'm not surprised at all that she didn't listen to him.
  • I liked that Jack told Marguex that he didn't believe that Emily did it because there are too many clues leading to her as Victoria's killer and that the whole thing is sloppy which isn't like Emily at all.
  • I like that Jack quickly figured out that Marguex is in on framing Emily for Victoria's death.
  • I like that David try to cover for Emily when Ben came over but it didn't help her in the end.
  • I liked that Emily figured out that Mason left with Victoria just the day before.
  • I liked that when David told Jack that he should have stopped her that Jack pretty much told him that you can't stop Emily from doing something when she decides she has to do it.
  • I liked that Nolan told Louise that although he adores how loyal she is that her loyalty to Victoria is misplaced and he doesn't understand why she doesn't see Victoria the way that everyone else does. I also liked that when Louise says Victoria is the only one who cared about her that Nolan told her she knows that's not true implying that he still cares about her.
  • I'm worried about David because it looks like his illness is taking a turn for the worse.
  • I like that Jack and Nolan with help from Jack's friend were able to get Marguex arrested which allows Emily to get her alone in a room with her.
  • I liked that Emily was able to break out of her cell and into Marguex and that she threatened Marguex with torture in order to figure out how Vitoria staged her own murder.
  • I like that Emily told Ben all that she learned about how Victoria staged her death which included how she used someone else body and switched their dental records.
  • I liked that Louise found some evidence that suggest Victoria stage Emily attacking her which led Louise into thinking that maybe Victoria is framing Emily for her murder and she tells Ben all of this.
  • I like that Ben ended up looking into Emily's claims and he sees that they turn out to be the truth.
  • I liked that Louise was believing that Nolan was right about Victoria this time and I dislike how Marguex made her think he was liar again because her and Victoria's scheme was coming to light.
  • I felt so bad for Emily when her dad told her that he only had six more months left to live and I love how she refused to let him just give up even though there really isn't anything that can be done to save his life.
  • I liked that Ben was able to track down Victoria but sadly he was killed before he could reveal the truth to anyone.

TV Review: Scream:The Orphanage(2.09)

                                               Scream:The Orphanage(2.09)Review
  • I find it interesting that the episode started off with Emma having a nightmare where she killed Audrey, Noah and Kieran and wakes up in the kitchen holding a knife which is very concerning. I also find it interesting that Kieran was in Emma's dream because I understand that she feels betrayed by Audrey and Noah but I don't understand why Kieran would be there too.
  • I think that Kieran is acting like Emma waking up with a knife in her hand is no big deal is a bit concerning because that's something that one should worry about.
  • I understand why Emma doesn't want to see Audrey right now or really ever again but it still makes me a bit sad but I do like that Emma wants to talk to Noah to figure out the truth behind everything that she found out about Audrey.
  • I liked that Brooke is feeling some regrets about the speech she made last episode where she basically told the whole town that they deserve to die and she wonders if anyone doesn't hate her and I like that Gustavo says that he doesn't.
  • I thought that it was pretty creepy that Gustavo stole one of Brooke's lipsticks for whatever reason.
  • While I can understand why Emma, Brooke and Kieran would all think the worst of Audrey I still feel bad for her because I know that she didn't know Piper was behind the murders until the very end.
  • I liked that when Emma mentioned the email she got of Audrey confessing to Noah that Noah asked to see the email right away because he knew that figuring out who sent it could lead them to the killer possibly.
  • I liked Audrey and Noah fought about how Noah was wrong Emma forgiving her just like he did if she found out the truth and that she doesn't trust that he didn't send the auto file because he always claims he's unhackable and then once she believes he didn't send the file she starts suspecting Zoe of it because she's one of the few people who has been in Noah's room and he doesn't believe for a second that Zoe could have done this.
  • I find it interesting that the killer left the tape that psychology teacher, Ms. Lang  made in her locker and I liked that Emma both feels violated at being recorded without her knowledge but also fears that Ms. Lang may be right about her.
  • I thought that Audrey's theory about why Zoe might have wanted to make it look like Noah sent the tape to Emma in order to create a rift between Audrey and Noah was one that makes quite a bit of sense.
  • I liked how when Zoe swore to Noah that she only listened to the file herself and didn't send it to anyone else that he believed her even though she did look pretty guilty.
  • I liked that Sheriff told Emma's mom about how he fears that Gustavo may be the person who is behind the killings.
  • I'm Curious as to why Ms. Lang was so terrified to see Emma when she visited her in the hospital.
  • I find it suspicious that Gustavo went through his father's files but the fact that he was surprised that there was a file about him makes me believe that he's not the killer.
  • I liked that no matter how guilty Zoe looked that Noah believed that she was telling the truth and that he stood up for her when Audrey was blaming her.
  • I liked that Noah told Audrey that finding out who sent Emma the email wasn't going to fix things and that Audrey would have to find a way to fix things with Emma some other way.
  • I liked that Noah and Zoe were finally able to have sex with each other.
  • I find it interesting that Ms. Lang knew Piper from years ago and that may be the reason she's interested in Emma.
  • I liked how Noah and Zoe were trying to figure out how they killer would know about the recording and why he would want to implicate her which leads to Noah worrying that he got Zoe involved in this and she tells him that she choose to get involved and that she'd do it again.
  • I liked that Noah figured out that the camera from the storage unit was bugged and that it's been recording everything that's been said in his room since he brought it there and I liked that he smashed it.
  • I liked that Emma called Noah to ask him about Blessed Children which is a foster home that Piper and Ms. Lang grew up in that was an Asylum before that and that the foster home was shut down because abuse allegations ten years ago.
  • I liked that when Brooke found out that her dad hired Jake to burn down a building for him on the night that he died that Brooke told her dad off about never telling the cops about any of this even after Jake was found dead.
  • I liked that Audrey kept trying to write Emma and email that would tell her how sorry she is about everything but she keeps deleting it because nothing seems good enough.
  • I liked that when the killer called Audrey and told her that Noah would die if she didn't stop him from killing him that she dropped everything and went to try and save him.
  • I was surprised that a party was going on at Blessed Children when Emma, Kieran, Noah and Zoe arrived there and I was even more surprised that the killer made it look like Emma and Audrey were the ones throwing it.
  • I like that even though Emma is still very mad at Audrey she doesn't for a second think that Audrey would be the one throwing this party but that it's the real killer's doing.
  • I find it interesting that Hayley was sort of dating the killer but that doesn't end up saving her from getting killed by him.
  • I liked that the killer text both Emma and Audrey that their better half will rot if they don't come upstairs and I liked how when Emma said Kieran that Audrey said Noah.
  • I found it freaky how Emma and Audrey found Piper's body upstairs and I liked how Emma figured out that the killer wants to punish both Emma and Audrey killing Piper.
