Netflix has made it again with Girlboss. Based on the book with the same title [The Book Depository], this comedy takes us through Sophia’s journey towards success. She doesn’t want to work for anyone but herself. So, she will create a business on eBay selling vintage clothes that she found, but with some improvements.
Sophia is pure chaos. She is messy, selfish and incredibly energetic. She knows about fashion, but she has little knowledge about other things. I wonder if the real Sophtia is like the character we can enjoy on Netflix.
[SPOILER ALERT: from here you’ll find massive spoilers. The show is good and funny, so if you want to be surprised, refrain yourself from reading whatever comes next.]
I went to see Ghost in the Shell this weekend, and I must admit I expected more from it. However, it’s a very entertaining film that follows pretty well the anime. This movie has had a lot of drama around it because of whitewashing. But, before we dive into this, let’s talk a little bit about Scarlett Johansson. Despite all the drama, she did quite a good job. Although seeing her with black hair was a little bit weird.
[SPOILER ALERT: this post contains massive spoilers and some drama about the film. However, the drama might not be what you’re expecting.]
This THORsday we’re going to take a look at The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Power [The Book Depository]. She is one of the strongest characters within the Marvel Comic Book Universe. She’s smart, sassy, and very funny. One of the strong points isn’t her strength but her abilities. One of them is computer science. It’s great to find a Superhero that doesn’t conform to stereotypes. Not only her body shape is different to many female Superheroes, her attitude and brains too. So, it’s great to find a female Superhero that represents girls in an unbeatable way.
In this trade we’ll find the origin story of Squirrel Girl. We’ll also meet her friends and her mother. We also get to know her tastes and personality. Furthermore, we can also meet other Superheroes too, even if it’s just through cameos.
I saw Disney’s Beauty and the Beast last Monday, and it was beautiful. I have, to be honest with you: I didn’t expect much from the movie. I’m happy to be wrong here because it’s a great Disney masterpiece. I remembered the animation movie as a pleasant ride. However, there were lots of things that didn’t tune with me. This time, Disney has fixed almost all the problems. And they created something amazing.
I loved Belle’s small family. Her Dad gave her the opportunity to grow. He didn’t limit his daughter. Instead, he opened the door for her. What’s more, he insisted on not letting Gaston frame him. He would not let his Belle be married to such a terrible man. Belle is an intelligent young woman who wants to know more about the world. Her town is small. But the problem isn’t the size of the village, but the size of the world view its inhabitants have: narrowminded. Women shouldn’t know how to read. But, what if your heart longs for something else? Shouldn’t a woman be able to choose what’s best for her?
Good Girls Revolt is a jewel that you can find on Amazon Prime. It might sound like the topic is dead, but it couldn’t hotter. The show has been canceled, and it seems there won’t be any second season. Is it because we’re going back in time to when women and men hadn’t the same rights? If so, we might well take our shiny armors again!
Based on real facts, this show tells us the story of a group of women and their fact for equal rights in the workplace. A group of women from Newsweek filed a complaint back in 1970 and hell broke lose. After them, many others followed.
It was a time when some women didn’t dare to look at their vulvas with a mirror. But it was also the time for the second wave of feminism. The counterculture was all over, and times were changing. And while Newsweek was covering everything, they were also discriminating their female staff. None of the women were allowed to become writers (or editors). They even hired a freelancer female writer to cover the women revolution for one of their issues. When that issue hit the stands, women working in Newsweek hold a conference and revolted.
I thought Preacher was going to be boring. I was wrong. It’s a “Vertigo” ride of massive proportions. Based on a comic book by Vertigo, it tells the story of Jesse Custer, a small-town preacher who is on a mission to find God. He is a mess: he drinks until he passes out in front of the altar of his small Church; he’s best friend is an 119-year-old Irish vampire, and his ex-girlfriend wants him to kill a guy.
Could it be even weirder than this? YES!! And that’s the beauty of the show! [BIG SPOILERS AHEAD FOR SEASON 1: I can’t review it without giving away some hilarious information. This show is weird, crazy, and utterly fascinating. I’ve never laughed so much with something so gruesome!]
Weirdworld [The Book Depository] is certainly a weird comic book. Marvel Comics has made a huge bet with it. Although it might seen chaotic at first, it’s a fascinating reading. We follow the adventures of Becca, a teen girl from the US who is travelling to Mexico to bring the ashes of her deceased mother to a resting place. Her mother commited suicide and she’s comming to grips with it. Possibly, she did so due to a depression.
Becca never makes it to Mexico. Instead, the plane crashes on the Weirdworld. It’s a crazy land of magic and mayhem. There she meets Goleta, the Wizard Slayer. Together, they embark on a quest. Becca just wants to return home, Earth. She has an Infinity Stone that Morgan Le Fay (the evil Queen of Weirdworld) wants.
Thor: Ragnarok is so metal that it got me on a creative spree today. I couldn’t stop thinking about Loki’s horns and Thor’s Hammer. Poor Mjolnir is the first victim of Hela. But, is she as bad as she seems? Where does she get the makeup? It’s most likely that she gets it from the same shop the Winter Soldier does.
Despite the full trailer being an ode to Thor, Loki has created enough havoc online as to provoke a hurricane. Seconds, he appears only seconds, and he’s making all ovaries explode! Tumblr is on fire! Why? Because the Trickster is horny, and because we’re left to explore an almost hammer-less Thor. (Spoiler alert: he has two Hammers and not only Mjolnir!)
Now, if you want to share a laugh, and explore what the trailer has to offer, I invite you to download this ode to horny helmets, naughty guyliners, and hammers.
I’m so hooked on Thor: Ragnarok teaser trailer! Thor sees how Hela destroys his hammer with style, a lot of style. We see Loki having fun with knives, and we have a flair for comedy thanks to the Hulk. But there are several points that we need to geek out loud thanks to this trailer.
Thor appears hanging from chains into a lava abyss. I bet that must be Hela’s realm. Hela’s awesome and super spooky. For starters, she appears with her traditional appearance in the comics: with lots of horns and very intimidating. She’s alluring, yes. But, she’s also very intimidating. We get to see for the first time too Valkyrie.
Valkyrie is working for the Grandmaster. And who is he? The Grandmaster is one of the Elders of the Universe. And, he’s the brother of the Collector. We know that from the comics.
I know, I’m quite late in sharing an unboxing video about FairyLoot’s March box. I’ve been pretty busy, which means, editing videos is taking me longer than planned. But, here’s the video and here are the goodies! This is the one-year-anniversary box from FairyLoot. I must tell you: I adored it! But it was super heavy! (Happily heavy, merrily blue!)
The funny thing is that I was searching for some lights to decorate my shelves. But, I couldn’t make up my mind about what type, since I already have a set of white LEDs. Luckily, the guys from FairyLoot have done the job for me: and I adore what they sent me! A set of super cute unicorn and clouds (with some rainbows)! Sorry, not sorry to spoil one of the items before time, but I so happy to have the lights that I need to share it before the video begins!
