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.

Who is Professor Zoom?

 

The CW’s Flash was a dream come true for me. I have fond memories of being a child, sneaking into the living room after my mom passed out on the couch with the TV on, in  hopes of catching the 90’s Flash show staring John Wesley Shipp. The Flash is also the one Comic book that I have faithfully bought each and every month, for as long as I can remember. I am proud to say that I am obsessed with all things Scarlett speedster! A big part of that is his rogues gallery. The Flash has one of the brightest and diverse group of villains out there, in my opinion, second only to Batman. But the most menacing of the bunch is Professor Zoom, not to be confused with the Reverse Flash. The TV show has further muddied these waters by switching names around, but that will be a write up for another day. I want to focus on the comic version of Zoom and all his terrifying glory!
