Top Films of 2017

Top Films of 2017

Well, 2017 has come to an end. Not going to sugarcoat it folks: this was a rough year with ups and so many downs. And we’ve all felt it: the looming war, the orange moron leading us into more despair every day, the countless sexual predators finally being called out and of course who could forget the return of the Nazi! Who saw that coming? But though it all we as people had to take charge and stand up and say no more! And we did. We marched for women, fought for black lives, trans rights and basically the right to simply be free in our country. The fight continues: people who hate and fear, your time has come. You will not win.

Yes, heavy stuff this year. But when we needed to decompress or just shut off the voices in our brains and have a little enjoyment, this year was full of some great movies: wonderful films showing us love, strong females standing up for all rights, and people showing the world how much representation matters. No matter how bad things look; at least our voices in art haven’t been silenced. Read On

Review: The Princess Diarist (audio book)

Review: The Princess Diarist (audio book)

“If anyone reads this when I have passed to the big bad beyond I shall be posthumorously embarrassed. I shall spend my entire afterlife blushing.”

It’s almost Christmas, so do you need to find a last-minute gift for that hard-to-shop-for friend? It’s also been almost a year since we lost Carrie Fisher; don’t you think now seems like a good time for more stories of life in- and adjacent-to-Hollywood by the galaxy’s most famous princess? And best of all there’s a brand-new Star Wars movie out right now, and wouldn’t you like to hear more about the filming of the movie that started it all?

If the answer to these questions is yes then you really need to pick up a copy of Carrie Fisher’s final book, The Princess Diarist. Inspired by (and including) newly-found journal entries that Fisher made while filming Star Wars: A New Hope, the book is a close look at the mindset of a 19-year-old who’s in the middle of her first successful acting gig, while having an affair with a handsome older actor who just happened to be her character’s love-interest for the next four decades.

Review: Star Wars Aftermath – Empire’s End

Review: Star Wars Aftermath – Empire’s End

“The Rebellion was easy, Lando. Governing’s harder.”

The Empire takes its last stand on the planet of Jakku in the final book of Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy. And while this trilogy has been less “journey to The Force Awakens” and more “what happened right after Return of the Jedi,” we get a tiny glimpse of the start of the First Order in a tale of old favorites, new favorites that I hope we’ll see more of, the birth of the New Republic and the last gasp of a foe that’s dangerous even when it’s dying.
