MacGyver Remake

Ok sexxy viewers, I have a new review to give you.  I know, sexxciting!  

TV Show Review: MacGyver (remake). 

           About a month ago I gave a joyous review of the new MacGyver show.  The woman and I watched the first ep and though we didn't think it was great, we thought it would be good enough to have as a regular Friday night show.  However, when Friday next rolled around we were less than enthusiastic about watching it.  I DVR'd it nonetheless.  The wifey said she wasn't really into it, so I decided to watch ep 2 while she was doing other things.  I honestly couldn't get into it.  The acting is a bit over the top and cheesy (yes, I'm aware of the 80's cheese factor from the original show).  The thing is, with the original show, the actors made it believable and exciting and fun.  What shenanigans was "Mac" going to get into??  And how will he get out of said shenanigans??  Agghh!  We believed he could use a paperclip, lamp, and foil, to make a helicopter.  😁  Seriously, though, we believed that Mac could make something out of nothing.  He didn't use weapons, he used ingenuity and intellect.  It was cool.  I think that premise is totally workable even in these modern times.  Especially in these modern times.  I just think the writing needs to improve and the actors need to loosen up a bit and have more fun with it, but at the same time make us believe that THEY believe the scenes/situations they are crafting, are possible.  Open our imagination and give us thrilling science & action!  Is the show salvageable?  I believe so.  It may just be suffering the freshman jitters.  Mayhap (yes, mayhap. I'm bringing it back) they'll work out the kinks in their sophomore outing (if they survive the first season & get renewed).  Unfortunately, for now, I have to revise my rating.  I don't recall what I gave it originally, but I am giving it 1 X out of XXX rating.

💙¡Stay Entertained! 🎬 ¡Happy Viewing!💙

Author Elie Wiesel Passes Away 7.2.16

Very sad.  His novel, "Night", was amazing.  One of my all-time fave reads.  A story that shreds all emotions.  Def read it if you haven't.  RIP, Mr. Wiesel.

Books-to-Movies Changes: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

I really hate when filmmakers make nonsensical changes when adapting books to film.  I understand that the movies will never compare to the book and some changes are required and even make sense.  It's the unnecessary changes that really irk me.  In case of this book-to-movie, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, they changed two characters' peculiarities.  Emma, a fiery (delicious pun intended), has a pyro peculiarity.   She's easily one of the best and strongest characters in the books.  Her role, and peculiarity, is crucial to the plot.  Olive, a supporting character whose peculiar is levitation (she has to wear lead shoes or she'll float away), is more of a timid and delicate, but brave character.  Her role is important, but not pivotal.  So why would Burton do a role reversal of the two?  It's infuriating.  And what really gets me is the author approving this kind of change.  It doesn't make any sense.  I was really excited to see this adaptation.  I loved the series and I love Burton, but this kind of shenanigans has dampened that excitement.  #brokenbookieheart #booklivesmatter

R.I.P. Prince

I just couldn't be sadder by the news of Prince's passing.  I am a product of the 80's and Prince's music was a big part of youth.  RIP, purple one.  Doves are crying for sure.

Crayyyyy.  I've only made it through the first 3 in the series.  Lots of deaths.  Lots more to come from the looks of it.

The Fireman by Joe Hill

Joe Hill has a new novel due out May 2016.  I can't wait to read it!  I have his novel, NOS4A2, on my 2016 Boal and am excited to read, too.  I loved, Horns, and really enjoyed Heart-Shaped Box.  Hope he has the same success as his father, Stephen King.  Who happens to be my favorite author.
