Betrayed by the Summer Movie Hype… A Star Trek Beyond and Suicide Squad Review

Does anyone else feel betrayed by the summer movie premieres? All year I’ve been looking forward to Star Trek Beyond and Suicide Squad, and now that both of these movies have dropped, I’m just so…(sigh)…disappointed.  At first it was upsetting because watching the trailers filled me with soo much JOY. Jared Leto’s Joker laugh was unique and brilliant, and Star Trek‘s plot line looked promising. I mean, it didn’t have my man, BC, but the thought of Captain Kirk and Spock returning to the big screen led to a very special nerd-gasm.

It must be me. Do I just get overjoyed way too quickly with the thought that all my nerdy dreams are finally coming true? How could I be so naive to think that the people behind the curtain would care about accuracy or a thorough and engaging plot line? And that they would find time to represent the characters to how, us fans, know and love them instead of how they think the characters should be interpreted. Silly rabbit.

But I mean, is it a lot to ask? Is it that difficult to represent a character in their true form, or just have plain ole’ good writing? From what I saw over the last two weekends, apparently so. Continue reading “Betrayed by the Summer Movie Hype… A Star Trek Beyond and Suicide Squad Review”

Hold the Door! The Flash Did What? And X-men Be Vexing Men?! It’s Your RiceBall Recap

Does anyone else feel like summer just came out of nowhere? I mean, a week ago I was freezing my butt off, bundled up in blankets, sweaters, scarves, jackets and whatever else….and today it’s 80 (mofo’in) degrees! I have crazy, humidity hair! Ugh.

I see spring done gave up, and decided she ain’t gonna be around for all this global warming ish. We were straight cut off this year.

boring tvAnd speaking of cut off, how goes your summer TV watching? Mid-season shows have ended and I’m stuck in limbo surfing channel to channel for a nightly prime time selection. I know it’s summer when my TV yells at me to get the hell off my couch and do something productive.

TV: “Go to the gym!”

Me: Ha! TV, you’re hilarious.

But technically, it’s not summer until all the Game of Thrones eps are over, and we have 4 more of those bad boys! I refuse to delve into my summer TV rut until after GOT is over. Somehow, deep down, I know Netflix will save me, though. Especially with OITNB on the horizon. Yay!

If you missed it, a lot has transpired over the past week or so, specifically with TV and movies. Hot topics, for me, consist of The Flash, Game of Thrones, and (although I hate to admit it) X-men: Apocalypse. Yea, I took time to see it over the weekend, and man, am I disappointed.

But before I get into that, I just wanted to let you know…this is your RiceBall Recap.

5 Reasons To Watch One Punch Man

2015 was a great year for new and interesting anime.  However, one anime took the crown. That anime is, One Punch Man (OPM)! When it first was released, social media was having a field day. It almost seemed as though OPM broke the anime internet. But, why? What is it about this anime that is making people across the world go crazy? It seems as though OPM showed up over night. All I kept seeing was random clips of amazing GIFs and fight scenes, and one bald headed guy with a weirdly animated face in a yellow jump suit and red gloves.  Upon furthering my research (aka talking to my nerd friends), all I kept hearing was that, “He’s a hero but for fun…and he is crazy strong!” What?? I tried to reserve my judgement until I watched the anime.  It seemed like there was a lot of over-hype about it. Is this anime really that good?  What was it that set it apart from the rest to make it the most talked about and entertaining anime of the 2015 year?  After finally watching the anime in full,  I understand. If you haven’t already watched it yet. Here are: 5 reasons to watch One Punch Man. Continue reading “5 Reasons To Watch One Punch Man”
