Movie Reviews

This week I realized I'd been to a couple of movies lately! Figured it might be fun to give you my thoughts on each in case you wanted to see any of them! As a teacher, I have to be a grader. :)

Captain America: Civil War - A
I really liked this movie. I think that they did something with the Avengers that really hadn't been done yet, and showed a new side to a lot of them. My favorite scene was definitely the "new kid" who was talking too much during the fight. Totally my spirit animal
The Huntsmen - B
I actually enjoyed this movie quite a bit. There is some action for the guys, some humor for sure, and even a bit of a love story to enjoy throughout the film. The end has some twisty bits, which is awesome.
X-Men: Apocolypse -
I love the X-men and so it's hard for them to screw this up for me. While I didn't enjoy it as much as Days of Future Past, I thought it was still really interesting to watch. People who know more about the series thought it had some flaws and major plot holes that were a disconnect. But if you are like me and don't really know that much of the backstory then I think you would enjoy it!
Sisters - D
What the?! I'm sorry but who made this movie? I like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and this movie was such a flop in my opinion. Very few funny parts. At one point the movie stopped working and I realized I didn't care if I didn't' find out how it ended - which is really rare for me, usually it would bother me.

Blog Thoughts

I'm at a strange place with my blog, where I have more posts photographed and ready to go than I do days to post them. Normally I'm scrambling to have anything at all. Must be because my Master's is on hiatus for a few weeks until the summer session begins.
I find myself having almost too much time to think about my blog, because at the end of the day, I don't know anything about coding, website design, engagement or aesthetic on social media. I try out new things that may work for a minute or two, but my blog inevitably ends up back where it was before. I keep telling myself that people quit all the time, and that perhaps it is not quitting, that will get me where I want to be and learn what I need and want to learn.
The biggest thing for me is I don't like my website design- if anyone has (or knows of) a post about learning about design, I would be so so grateful if you linked it in the comments!

Thanks for coming by and reading!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Come follow along on Pinterest for more!
xoxo,
Victoria

  1. Oh no what a shame that sisters movie is no good - looks really funny in the trailers! I might wait until it comes on netflix then.

    Good luck with the design changes for your blog! I'm no expert but you can buy templates on etsy if you want something different :)
