Are these really #Squadgoals?

IMDB | Letterboxd | Trailer

A bunch of super-villains are forced to become a team and fight something even more evil. That’s the short premise of Suicide Squad, this year’s most anticipated summer blockbuster movie. It’s the third movie in the DCEU and promised us a lighter and funnier tone than the previous two and it did give us just that. It also has the most unique characters that exist in this universe, but they’re let down by an unimaginative and generic story.


The latest trend in superhero movies is that they’re not just superhero movies. They’re thrillers, space operas and action-comedies while still very much feeling like a superhero movie. This is just a superhero movie, but that doesn’t make it less fun or enjoyable. However, this is also one of the problems I had with the movie. It’s a standard story that we’ve seen countless times before. A group of heroes, or misfits in this case, come together to form a team and fight a villain that wants to destroy our world.

I Hate Fairyland vol. 1 // Comic Review

I Hate Fairyland Infocard II.png

Goodreads | Book Depository

Skottie Young, who you may know from writing and drawing Rocket Raccoon and Groot, delivers once again with I Hate Fairyland. This time he writes for a different publisher, which results in a totally different series. If you take the time to read the synopsis for this series you’ll immediately notice that this is not some ordinary fairytale. Being a mix between Alice in Wonderland and Deadpool, this series offers you a raunchy and hilarious take on the way too familiar story.

That Summer Feeling

My last exam is coming up next week, so it’s the perfect time to start looking forward to the summer vacation. The good weather, traveling and loads of free time are things I’m in desperate need of. School has been extremely busy this year, as I just almost finished my first year in college, and I really need some time to catch up on sleep and all other sorts of things. In this post I’d like to take a look at all the things that I’m aspiring to read or watch this summer.


Yes Please – Amy Poehler
I’ve already started reading this quite a while ago, but I wasn’t able to continue reading due to having to read another book for school. Now that that’s over I’ll gladly reprise Yes Please. I’ve only read 36 pages (and the prologue) so far, but I was already really enjoying it. She’s hilarious and it’s fun to know she’s dealing with other people and situations.

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
I think it’s about time that I read this one. Gone Girl has garnered a lot of critical acclaim and it has been lauded by readers, so I guess that’s the most important recommendation you can get. The fact that I liked The Girl on the Train so much and that it is being called ‘the new Gone Girl’ should say something, right? I’m really excited to read this one, or perhaps devour is a better word, and then I can finally watch the movie as well.

Random Things II | Haul

I’m here again with another haul. It’s been a while since my last one, mainly because I haven’t bought that much lately which you’ll probably notice from the items I’m mentioning in this post. I can very well change the title of this post to My favourites as these aren’t necessarily things that I buy to keep. I’m saying that because there’s food on this list.


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – season 1DSC_0189.jpg
I bought and watched this quite a while ago, but this is still something that’s on my mind sometimes. I’ve been wanting to watch the second season, but I haven’t really gotten to it yet. The first one was hilarious and caught me off-guard. Sure, I sometimes thought it was getting too quirky, but then it just carried on and I didn’t mind it. Ellie Kemper is exquisite as the main character and seriously makes you believe that she isn’t familiar with things nowadays. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go watch this series, because it’ll be weird if I try to explain it. I recommend this series to everyone who likes quirkiness with a lot of heart. Being written by Tina Fey should be enough to win you over, if you’re a fan of this kind of humour.

Captain America: Civil War | Non-Spoiler | Movie Review

Captain America Civil War

IMDB | Letterboxd | Trailer

Marvel’s latest movie has some of their biggest superheroes clashing each other in a conflict about being regulated by the government. What an incredible third part of an already amazing trilogy. Almost everything about this movie was impeccable and it has the best action sequence I’ve seen in a while.  Continue reading Captain America: Civil War | Non-Spoiler | Movie Review

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice | Movie Review

Batman v Superman

IMDB | Letterboxd | Trailer

Batman and Superman are united on screen, at last. It’s something I had long been waiting for and now that I’ve finally seen it I must admit that I’m not convinced this was the big battle they promised us. We saw them fight, we saw them playing mind games with each other, but I feel like this movie missed a few important things and did things that weren’t necessary. Be warned as I might be discussing some spoilers.

The very first part of the movie was already a bit confusing. I thought that they were trying to introduce so many things that it didn’t make any sense. The Batman origin story was done well and wasn’t too elaborate, as we’ve seen that story once before and it would be tedious to watch it again and again. Though that in combination with the other scenes that followed made for a strange start of the movie. I think they tried to set up some things too early and without enough explanation.

Deadpool | Movie Review

Deadpool

IMDB | Letterboxd | Trailer

So I finally went to see Deadpool a couple of days ago. It’s long overdue since it came out more than a month ago. Even the cashier at the movie theater didn’t believe we were this late to watch the movie. My sister knows her, so she wasn’t being rude or something and she had a point. For being a big fan of superhero movies and Marvel in general, it did take me a while to go watch this. Now that I’ve finally seen Deadpool I have to admit, I don’t really know how I feel about it. It was exactly what I expected it was going to be, but it also wasn’t entirely that. I’m making no sense at all, am I? Let me explain.
