I just saw the film Captain Marvel. I thought it was really well done. The technology for today to make an actor look fifty years younger is amazing. There were a few twists in the film, one I already figured out, but the why I was slightly wrong on. I know I am being a bit vague, but I don’t want to accidentally write down a spoiler in this review. I love Goose the cat, but I am also afraid of Goose…you’ll see why when you see the film. If you’ve already seen the film then you know what I am talking about. ^^;
The camera angles for the flying/action scenes were great, they did a good job of Stan Lee’s cameo in the film (I don’t know if this was his last or if his last is suppose to be in Endgame), only the beginning was slow instead of half the film (because you know….set up and all), and the movie was just kick ass. The beginning was a bit confusing, but now that I think about it the filmmakers probably wanted it that way because the main character had some confusion herself.
All I can say is that the movie was so good I didn’t even finish my popcorn and that is saying a lot. So run out there and go see Captain Marvel! I promise I do not work for any film companies or anything. If I did I wouldn’t be living in a desert with two feline fuzzballs. This is not an endorsement. I just love movies. 🙂

Yesterday I went to see “The Dark Crystal” in theaters because I’ve never seen it in theaters before. I have it on DVD and I’ve seen it multiple times. But, it was even more fascinating to watch it on the big screen. It’s pumped up my passion for fantasy creatures and magic. Today I sketched a wolf fairy. I want to do some fan art as well from the movie, but I don’t know if I can pull it off. If I try and it totally like really sucks then I really will get discouraged again in my art. But, I want to try anyway and take that risk. If you’ve never seen The Dark Crystal you should check it out. It’s one of Jim Henson’s finest films right next to my other favorite… “Labyrinth”. ^^;

…Happy Single’s Awareness Day! Well, actually it is tomorrow officially and then unofficially it is celebrated whenever the hell you feel like in February. I plan on officially celebrating on Saturday. I am having a cheat day and I had ordered fancy cakes from a bakery a few weeks ago to be delivered. Truth be told though, have been cheating here and there and only lost a few pounds and inches. Imagine if I got rid of all the temptation how really great I would be doing!
I have not faltered from my exercise routine, except last Friday I did not attend my dance class, but this was because it was my uncle’s birthday and I had to cook and stuff. I was told two days before that it was being held at my place. Apparently this is a thing that is done in my family and in itself is a tradition. If this is a tradition you would think I would anticipate it better, but I did not remember my uncle’s birthday. Yes, that sounds horrible, but I have a lot on my plate in life right now.
After this week I am going to really buckle down…you know before Easter rolls around. ^_^;;
The sweets are too good and that is all my brain keeps screaming at me especially when a holiday like this is around makes it worse. This is not just a battle, but this is a war that I must win at all costs. I refuse to celebrate Valentine’s Day since I am single and I have a valid reason for being cynical today. The flowers, candy, balloons, couples PDA, and yes even television betrays me with a plethora of romance films. In these romance films there are five set reused plots that are used over and over again making these movies very predictable. Who ever watches these should get a gold star and a merit badge, because I do not know how they can have the time, brain capacity, or attention span to watch them. If it makes you happy to watch them good for you and all that jazz, but they are not for me and they are not my cup of tea. If by chance someone does not reuse one of the five reusable plots, and does a new love story plot that is not predictable, I would like to know about it and I might give it a watch.
I took a handful of film classes while I was in college and now I can see stuff in film and television that the critics see. This has either ruined watching film/TV for me or it has enhanced it because now I see things differently because of my experiences from those classes. If you are serious about being in the film business or doing television and you either want to learn or take some classes be warned. You’ll never look at film or television shows again in the same way.
Romance is way overrated and being single can be a great thing! You can do whatever you want and when you want! You do not have to worry about considering the other person or compromising. Sure, there are down sides to being single too like being lonely or wanting the touch of another. There are also down sides to being in a relationship too. There are pros and cons with anything. If you are single you have no ties to anyone and can do anything. Love yourself and celebrate it and be grateful and happy about the body you are in. Have fun with being single and if you are with that special someone celebrate and cherish each other everyday and not just on this holiday that was created by the card, flower, and candy companies. Life is short kids…live every moment like it is your last!
