The Book Boyfriend Tag

Howdy!

I’ve been wanting to do this tag for a few months now, but I’ve needed time to think about my answers a bit. You’d think I would have all of my favorite book boyfriends straight but I don’t. I wish I had maybe then this post would have been a lot easier for me!

I found this tag on Jayati’s blog, so you’ll have to go visit it afterwards. She’s done a few others in the past that I have thought about doing too, but one step at a time here! Let’s start this post shall we?

RULES
Mention the creator of / blog you found the tag.
Nominate some fellow book bloggers to take the tag!
Be creative and have fun with your answers!

Most Romantic Boyfriend

I feel like Augustus Waters or Gus from John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars is probably the most romantic dude that still haunts my mind but in a good way! He was so charming and he really pulled me into the story. I still think Ansel Egort was the perfect Gus because he had that cute baby face that I pictured for Gus everytime I would continue on. The end of his story about killed me but I still love him!

Dark & Moody Bad Boy With A Good Side

I think I have to say, Will Traynor of Me Before You. He is the only one–besides Damon Salvatore–that goes well with this question. .

Will was a troubled man after he become paralyzed, one of the things that he let himself do was become very bitter with his new life. He hated being the way he was and even though I understand where he is coming from, I also feel like he just gave up on everything. However, he was still charming and full of humor which is how he and Lou got so close because they basically matched with their personalities.

Paranormal Boyfriend

The only one that came to my mind was Stefan Salvatore. I have always loved Stefan! He was the one that initially got me interested in The Vampire Dairies. I don’t think any of my family actually believes that since I love Ian Somerhalder so much but I have always loved Stefan’s story compared to Damon’s .He had a good heart, thanks to Lexi of course, and I really wish I had completed the Stefan’s Dairies now!

Boy You’d Be Friends With Benefits With

Oh boy! This is actually really difficult because I have a couple as sad as it is. My answer at the moment is Sedric Lionheart from the Sinners Of Tour series by Olivia Cunning. Between him and Eric Sticks, they’re both members of the casual sex team. I still prefer Sed over Eric, even though I love drummers more than lead singers,. I mean, I am my mother’s daughter after all!

Your Soul Mate

I think I will forever have a weakness for the cool, slightly gorgeous high school boys and I definitely love Josh from To All The Boys I’ve Loved by Jenny Han. I did the same thing as Lara Jean and tried to stay far away from my sister’s exes. You can continue to be friends with them, but you can never date them, I’m in my late 20’s and that’s still a rule that I go by!

Boyfriend You’d Venture Anywhere With

The first person I thought of was Ron Weasley, mostly because I would want to explore the magical world outside of London and Scotland, which is a little shocking for me to say because I love England’s history in general but I just want to see what other places in the world through his eyes I guess!

Boyfriend You’ Want To Be Stranded On A Desert Island With

Hmmmm… I am torn between Ash from Roxy Sloane’s book The Invitation and Trey from the band “Sinners” in Olivia Cunning’s series that I’ve mentioned many times in this post already! Trey is my favorite out of everybody, while Jace is probably second in line.

What is clever about this though is that if I could get both of them on the island, it would work out pretty well for Trey anyways because he’s bisexual. I don’t know if Ash would object on it, but I would be a happy camper if it worked out to my advantage!

Most Badass Boyfriend

The only one I thought worked with this, was Marc of the Kaylpso Masters’s series Rescue Me Saga since he rescued Angelina from her crazy and abusive ex-boyfriend. Technically, all of the guys featured in the series are badasses, but I think Marc is my favorite of the bunch!

Well I think I am done. If you enjoy doing easy blog tags, then you should definitely try this one out on your blog. If you actually decide to do it, please link it back to mine so I can take a look at your answers! I felt like a teacher saying that, but I would like to check out the books you’ve read too!

Do you have any book boyfriends? Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned above? If you have any suggestions that you think I should check out, let me know!

The Cake Flavored Book Tag!

Howdy!

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a tag, and I’ve been searching for fun things to post on here that wouldn’t consist of me doing a lot of thinking (much less move around!) so I have been reading other blogs in the last month and I have somebody who loves tags just as much as I do, and that is Shaa and she is a book blogger, so majority of the tags she’s done are about her favorite books. I checked it out, and I thought this would be a really fun thing to do. It is similar to the Books & Cookies tag I did a couple of months ago, but this is about cakes so how I can turn this down?!

Chocolate – A dark book that you loved

I thought about this question quite a bit because the word “dark” can literally mean different genres. At least I think it does, so I came up with two books that I think are “dark” in every sense of the word and they are Helter Skelter: The True Story Of The Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi with Curt Gentry and Night by Elie Wiesel. I remember reading both books in my Novels class and was absolutely floored by the horror each one discussed so that’s my answer.

Vanilla – A light read

This one was somewhat easier on me. However, there is more darkness to the story, but it is a very short book. I read this story while I was in my Short Stories class, literally a semester after completing the Novels course! It is The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. It’s about 64 and a really haunting read if you’re into that sort of thing!

Red Velvet – A book that gave you mixed emotions

Oh boy! There’s only one book that belongs with this question and it is The Ring and The Crown by Melissa de la Cruz. I thought the story of Princess Marie-Victoria was really good but unfortunately there was way too much information and far too many characters to keep up with so I had a love/hate relationship with the book itself.

Strawberry – A sweet book

A sweet book. Hmmmm…. I think I would have to say To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. I really loved that book. It just brought me back to my high school days and I really enjoyed being able to look back at those memories with a smile instead full of regret as I use to do! I really need to get back to reading the sequel sometime. I might wait to reading it in the summertime. That sounds like a good idea!

Cheesecake – A book that you would recommend to anyone

Oh jeez. I have a lot of books that I would recommend to people, but I think if anyone wants to experiment with the erotica genre, and use something else besides Fifty Shades; maybe you consider Roxy Sloane’s novella series The Invitation. The first book is just 50 pages but it’s page turner and if you love British men, this will be right up your alley, trust me!

Coffee Cake – A book that you started but never finished

On my Goodreads profile, I have a total of five books that I’ve started by never finished but I think the two that have bothered me the most are Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Aszkaban by J.K. Rowling and Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. The reason why I haven’t finished HPATPOA is because the movie has probably been my favorite out of the entire series, so I have trouble with comparing them side by side thus I’ve never been able to complete it. The other one is mostly because I go in and out of fantasy/magic genre. Originally, I stopped because I wanted a break… oops!

Carrot Cake – A book with great writing

Personally, I think there are at least three books that have had really great writing and they are: The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (again!), Me Before You by JoJo Moyes, and Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. The reason why I’ve chosen these three stories are because I thought they each have their good notes, but the one common bond they all share is that you can clearly picture everything that is going on within the story. I have a permanent image and to each one of them.

In The Yellow Wallpaper, I still have a sense of grief and am completely terrified to see anything on my walls. Whereas Me Before You brings me hope of understanding emotionally and physically as a  disability person. And finally, Red Queen means a lot for me. The fact that the writing itself was so vivid that I could see Mare running away, basically ducking and jumping out of a window; this somehow made me want to write a story with that much action and detail.

If you like mixing cake with books, you should do this tag too! Link it back to me if you remember, okay? Have you read any of the books I listed above?

6 Halloween Movies For Adults

comics3

Howdy!

We are on our last Halloween-y movie post! If you have missed the others, here are the Kid and Teen lists if you have time afterwards. This is directed to all of the adults out there as these films can have a lot of blood and gore, plus naked people throughout different scenes!

This was fairly easy compared to the others. I actually came up with this miniseries while I was trying to watch a movie featured below. That’s when I figured this would be a ghoulish (cool) idea to do! I tried to give you a variety, so you’re not going to get bored with each one, and honestly I was prepared to add more, but I decided I should keep the rest back in case I want to do this again for next year, and honestly I wanted to keep the amount the same for all three posts. 😉

Queen Of The Damned (2002)

I feel like this is the second most recent watched movie on this list. I finally had the guts to watch this on HBO last summer. I had tried to watch it prior but certain scenes were cut out of the original and of course, the commercials are really annoying so when this appeared on our guide, I was really excited! I didn’t really know what to expect because it was such an older movie and I’m not familiar with Anne Rice either, so watching this was interesting and better then Interview With A Vampire.

One thing I didn’t like about it, was the fact that Stuart Townsend isn’t the one singing at all throughout the movie. It is actually Jonathan Davis of Korn! I was shocked but I knew I recognized that voice when it first started. I definitely want to learn more about Maharet, because I thought this character was so interesting, but let’s be honest so was Akasha too! They’re the only reasons why I’d totally read the books!

Underworld: Evolution (2006)

Out of the five movies, this was the one that I hated, but mostly for good reasons when it comes to horror films in the first place. When I saw this for the first time, I remember being on edge the whole time because I knew about the blood and violence, but there were other things featured in this movie that the others didn’t have at all, like an actual flying vampire with wings! It was totally unexpected and scared the living shit out of me before it was all over, thus landing on this list!

The entire franchise is one of my favorites, they are exciting and very intense! If I need that fantasy driven action packed kind of movie, this is a go-to selection. I literally devoted myself for a whole year to watching all of the movies to get ready for the fourth film. I wasn’t able to do the same when Blood Wars was first on Starz, and I’m still not allowed to binge the whole thing because we’re missing Awakening on our DVR.

Jennifer’s Body (2009)

This is my recent watched movie on this list. A part of me sort of feels embarrassed by it, because it was really a stupid film, but I do think it was pretty gruesome too! I knew I had the right to be afraid on Megan Fox years ago. She plays a clever succubus, which isn’t a vampire, more like a demon that likes human flesh compared to blood. The worst scene for me was when Jennifer basically throws up that black mess onto Needy’s kitchen floor. I had an upset stomach afterwards.

Although it was a comedy-thriller, I can’t watch it again for the world. I am glad I can cross it off my list, but nope, you can’t pay me to watch it for a second time. If you haven’t seen it and like this sort of thing, you might have a different opinion about it. Good luck!

Hansel & Gretal: Witch Hunters (2013)

So, okay I need to admit this right now. I only wanted to watch this because Famke Janssen was in it. I wish I could go back and tell myself that I would sort of regret that decision to actually watch it. Don’t get me wrong, the movie itself was amazing but I was not ready for what it had in store for its viewers. However, I feel like that it was a good starter to the one below it.

I felt that played well with the original tale of Hansel and Gretal because both Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton have innocent looking faces, they’re just witch hunters! The witches in this film were freaky as hell, I remember I had to take a lot of breaks while watching it because sometimes it got to be too much for me to handle at once. It was also one of those films where it was good enough to never need a sequel after it, you know?

The Last Witch Hunter (2015)

This was another great movie! Although I made the mistake of starting it right before I ate supper, so when the beginning took place with that witch came out of the fire, it really surprised me and I had to wait until the next morning to actually finish the rest of it. I was really into it, but I really liked how clean and realistic it looked during certain scenes.

I would never think that Vin Diesel and Rose Leslie would bring great chemistry but they did! I was 100% behind it. What puzzles me is that not very many people liked it when it came out. I think it might’ve been the fact that Vin Diesel was the witch hunter that threw everyone for a loop, because he already looks like he could be one, so maybe they were hoping for somebody else that could shine out of other roles. I thought this was just different as far as picture and story, and I really hope HBO goes back to playing it again.

Victor Frankenstein (2015)

When I was a Junior in high school, I took a class called Novels for one semester and I loved it! The first book we read was Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” and I was really excited about it because I knew it was a classic and I thought it set the tone for what we could expect for the semester, because the rest were not wimpy novels at all and that was only one of the many reasons why I grew to love that class a lot! While I knew the whole story of the monster and its creator Victor Frankenstein, I think this was the closest to the origin story as you can get with a movie!

I remember while I watched it, I was seeing different chapters of the story I read probably six years before. They were suddenly flooding in my head at a fast pace and I was literally turning into a critic as it continued on, but instead of hating it I actually loved it because I saw a visual of a decent Victor on the screen, James McAvoy was a firm believer that he could basically defy God and everybody else to create a human being, while having an reluctant assistant in Igor (played by Daniel Radcliffe) who did what he was told or else he’d face whatever consequence Victor would do to him. I have to say that Igor wasn’t mentioned in the book at all, but I actually liked him in this story though!

I feel like I should mention that all but one of these movies were highly recommended by my dad at some point or another, because he is like me in a way, he’d rather watch a fantasy/horror inspired movie because let’s be honest, the special effects are pretty great! He does have a far larger collection of scary movies than me, but we do share quite a bit and we tend to ask what the other person thinks of it after we’ve finished it. The only one he hasn’t seen is of course, Jennifer’s Body because he knows better than me apparently!

I hope you all have enjoyed this series, if you liked it enough for me to do something like it again for next Halloween, let me know in the comments, okay?

3 Shows That Were Cancelled Too Early

vegan

I’ve been wanting to write about this since I seen Sara Bloo write about it on her blog either last year or the year before, I can’t remember at the moment. She had a pretty good mix of TV shows that she’s been missing and ever since then I’ve been thinking about what all I miss and which ones to include on here.

I like a lot of different shows, I don’t stay into one slot even though my brain wishes I would because I tend to get confused with the different characters and plots! One thing that all three have in common is that the final episodes were cliffhangers! Fans were left with not exactly knowing what would happened to these beloved characters! So I hope I have put some shows that maybe you enjoyed also and maybe we can bond on our favorite scenes and wonder where the story could have gone if they were allowed one more season!

1.) Forever – Fantasy/Crime starring Ioan Gruffudd, Alana de la Garza, and Judd Hirsch (2014-15)

I personally loved this show! Unfortunately, this was one of the shows that I ended up recording because it would come on so late at night. You’d think this wouldn’t be such an issue but at the time it was. I like having an hour or two to listen to my iPod before going to bed officially.

I found the story line to be very interesting! I have always loved the idea of immortal human beings, so the main character Dr. Henry Morgan being alive after he was shot on board a slave ship in 1814, everytime he is awaken he ends up in the Hudson River butt naked! He has an aging son Abe, which is such a good and creative outpost for this very complicated character, he basically can’t trust other people if he tells them the truth about how he gets out of these dangerous situations.

Of course, we have a couple of love interests. His first wife Nora committed him into an asylum when he told her about him being an immortal. After escaping and a few decades, he marries again to a woman named Abigail, who was his nurse when he treated soldiers in World War II, this is where they find Abe as a baby and they decide to adopt him. Again, after a few decades he meets Detective Jo Martinez who can’t quite get her head around this mysterious man and the things that seem to happen all around him. During the final episode, Henry finally talks to her and we’re pretty sure he finally confesses up to the secret of his life.

2. Mistresses – Drama starring Alyssa Milano, Yunjim Kim, Rochelle Ayles, and Jes Macallan (2013-16)

I will say that, despite the fact that this show was treated like a normal soap opera, I definitely see it like that. I’m still surprised that I watched it every summer and looked forward to the previews starting in March! Sadly, I never saw the news of it being cancelled so by the time March came along, I was wondering about it and thought maybe they were going to premiere later in the year. Well one day I got enough courage and found out that it got cancelled the previous September. SEPTEMBER! How the hell did I miss this because I follow basically the whole cast on Twitter!

My thoughts are because of the graphic nature and actions of the character “Joss” everybody seem to lose interest, however I disagree with the direction. As a sister of domestic abuse victim, how the character presented herself was normal. My sister didn’t go that route, but her anxiety heightened after everything happened. Once that changes, your whole personality can suffer too. They’re just trying to make everything they went through go away.

3. Witches Of East End – Fantasy/Drama starring Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Rachel Boston, and Machen Amick (2013-14)

I’m still trying to figure out how I got into this show in the first place! I’m pretty sure Jenna Dewan-Tatum had something to do with it, but I think I was actually curious about it. For one I had never heard of the book series before the show premiered but quickly put it on my TBR list after a few episodes aired! Another thing that weirded me out was the fact that it was on Lifetime or all channels!

Wendy is my favorite character, I’m not being biased when I say that, because if anybody watched it and have been reading this blog for a while, you think you know where I’m going with this, but you don’t! I’d wreck all nine lives if I was a cat! Anyways, I liked Freya and interesting past lives she had with Killian. I also loved the story line with Athena, the mother of both Dash and Killian and daughter of Archibald, a warlock who didn’t necessarily like the Beauchamps in East End.

This one also had another crazy cliffhanger that I have always been wondering about, because Ingrid had the weird “relationship” with the Mandragora and had a sauce-y fling with Freya’s ex-fiancee Dash and at the end of the finale we found out she’s pregnant but no chance in hell or ever finding out who is the father!

Did you watch any of these shows? Can you name a show that was short-lived and would come back?

Book Review: “Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard

22328546

Hey guys,

Okay, so as you can see I have read and finished a book this year! My first book of 2016! That..honestly doesn’t sound so exciting, but for me, it is! I didn’t (nor did my mom) think that I would go back to reading books. I say it a lot, but I need to start reading again. I really do! Coloring and reading keeps me away from my laptop and makes me take a break for an hour! And I think we all need those moments!

I’m a bit off subject, am I? Sorry about that!!

I found this book a few weeks ago, at the start of the month. It was at Walmart at a reduced price of $9.34; the original was $10.99. I knew it was on my TBR list, but I didn’t think I’d actually purchase a book. I should have grabbed the second while I had the chance! It’s okay though, I’m borrowing my cousin’s Harry Potter books at the moment!

I think I should come out and say, I’ve never read a book or series where the girl is the hero. I’ve only watched the movies where it’s like that! I know, I’m bad! I was a bit worried if I would like that or not, but from the time I started reading I kind of got sucked into it.

The story is of Mare Barrow who is a Red. She lives in a small village called the Slilts with other Reds like her and Silvers. Mare lives with her family, mother and father and younger Gisa who works in the square and three brothers, all fighting in the war.

Mare has one friend named Kilorn and he has a sticky situation. His master has died and now he has no job and is being the next to send off to war, but she has the idea of being smuggled out of the village by another friend Will, who is a local merchant. In the mist of finding a way out, she meets Farley, an important figure of The Scarlet Guard, a rebellious group of Reds fighting for equality from the royal and noble Silvers. In their escape plan to work, things go absolutely wrong and Mare runs away to the river and meets a strange, but warm person who she tries to pickpocket before heading home. Instead of yelling “thief” for everyone to hear, he learns more about her, but she only learns of his name Cal.

Everything is divided by their blood. She has red blood whereas others have silver-metallic blood. That’s not all that makes them special, they have “powers” different abilities like the controlling of elements: fire, water, and some of them can do things to you with their mind.

The land is ruled by a Silver king, Calore Tiberas, who has the power of fire. He’s wife Elara, is a whisper, she can go inside your mind and tell you do things against your will. He has two sons, Calore is his oldest and heir from his first first wife Queen Coriane, who was a singer. They can sing their way into making things happen. Youngest is Maven, who is the son of Elara and also shares his father and older brother’s power of pyro. The king is holding the Queenistral, which is for the nobles to offer up their daughters to the boys. Evangeline is the biggest candidate to be chosen and gets a chance to show off her powers in front of everyone and in the mist, something special happens to the least expected person there: Mare.

This is a good sci-fi, royalty book. I think it has the essences of Game Of Thrones, The Hunger Games and a bit of X-Men too. Trust me, once you start it, I’ll want to find out everything that happens! Everytime I thought would happen, didn’t and I loved that! I was always second guessing myself and I felt Mare was like that too, especially towards the end. I’m still reeling about the damn ending! Ugh!

Have you read Victoria Aveyard’s debut yet? If you have, what were your thoughts about it?

My “Game Of Thrones” Tag!

You can thank Danielle of Underland to Wonderland for this tag today! I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not I wanted to do this or just a big review like I’ve done with the previous TV shows! I figured this would require less gifs in this post than the reviews… So I hope nobody’s too upset by my decision!

WARNING!!!
If you have not finished or thinking about starting to watch the series, I’d really reconsider reading this post! It does contain quite a few spoilers!! So beware!

giphy1

Which season did you start watching and what got you into it?

I started with season 1 while everybody was watching season 6. I started in May and I finally caught up with everybody else and was able to watch the last three episodes of season 6 with everybody else!

As I mentioned in my Life Lately | Game of Cats post, I was really curious about Jon Snow’s death and everything, but it wasn’t enough to get me watching it until I found out that Natalie Dormer was in it and I caved in. I honestly love dragons too, so I guess I was curious about how these dragons were part of the story!

Sidenote: my mom sent me an article of Jon’s fate as I was finishing the second season! I thought that was kind of cruel!

Books or TV show?

I originally had plans to read the first book, but I found out how thick those books were and I realized the TV show would be the easy route.

You are born into one of the noble houses, which is it?

You know, I actually go back and forth on this question. As much as I love both the Stark and Targaryen Houses, it’s really difficult to chose because they each have their own personal strengths! The women of both Houses are awesomely fierce, it’s amazing!

If you can have one of either a Dragon or a Dire Wolf, which would you chose and why?

Again, this is another hard decision because I think both are an interesting addition. I think my spirit animal is a cross from a hawk and a wolf, so I am going with dragon.

25-media-tumblr-com-2-gif_212316

What has been the saddest death for you?

Honestly, there have been quite a lot of sad deaths in this show. I think when those giants were killed were pretty sad, mostly because I’m imagining these gentle beasts in my head.

I’ll be honest though, The Red Wedding just made me angry! I am usually the one trying to guess how a scene or the whole episode will end and I knew a death was going to occur, I mean there’s not many times on Game Of Thrones where everything ends on a happy note, so when it happened I really wanted to scream and throw my remote into my TV! Thankfully, I didn’t do that!

I also think the way Shireen was killed was pretty sad too. I mean, I understand the whole sacrifice thing, but what really gets me is the roles were reversed at last minute. You know Selyse’s feelings towards her daughter were through the seasons 4 and 5, but whenever this happened she gets very emotional and tries to save her daughter. I felt in a strange way, it was too little too late because I mean, didn’t she support it in the beginning? I was very disappointed in Stannis for letting it happen not only Shireen’s death, but also the aftermath of it too!

Another sad death was Rickon, I mean, Jon had to have known that he would be perfect bait against Ramsay’s armies. He reacted exactly the way Sansa was afraid it would happen…

Out of those dead, or presumed dead, who would you bring back and why?

I’ll say this, I’m actually happy that The Hound is alive. I recently heard about Lady Stoneheart, who apparently is a resurrected Catelyn Stark but instead of being this motherly woman as we’ve seen her to be in the first couple of seasons, she’s out for revenge of any one who still talks about and killed members of the soldiers and the murders of her son at the Red Wedding, I think it’s a very interesting concept and so I would like to see this happen.

I keep holding on to a bit of hope that Margaery would magically appear again, maybe as a ghost in one of Cersei’s dreams… I think that would be cool as she was the reason for Tommen’s death and everybody else’s in the Septa.

Who were you most happy to see killed?

Joffrey and Ramsay! Thank you god! I figured I’d be a little bit happy whenever Roose Bolton was killed, but I wasn’t. He should have been dead a long time ago!

giphy

Who do you think would make the best spouse?

Hmmm… let’s be honest here. I think both Ned was a good husband to Catelyn and if things hadn’t went downhill for his son Robb and his wife Talisa, I think they would have been another great couple too!

If we’re talking just a spouse in general, I think even though Tyrion has been essentially “burned” twice in the relationship department, I still think he was a reasonable husband to Sansa. He didn’t force himself on her and respected her a lot more than other members of his family… So Tyrion is my answer!

Out of all methods used to kill on the show, which would you rather use to kill and which to be killed by?

I think sticking a giant on a group of men with arrows and swords is a smart move. It makes for a slow death for the giant, but still a smart move!

Tell us your favorite quote from the series!

There are a lot of good ones throughout the series, but I really like “The North Remembers” and “I’m got going to stop the wheel, I’m going to break it.” – Daenerys ♥

Movies I Want To See In 2016 | First Half

movies

One of the things I mostly get excited for is the new movies that are coming out! I usually never go out to the theaters or anything, but it’s the build-up of these new films and your favorite actors/actresses playing these characters that really excite me! After 2014’s flop of new movies I had seen, I really wanted to watch as many as I could in 2015, plus any specials like Flesh And Bone on Starz and documentaries like Sinatra: All Or Nothing and Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck on HBO. I was pretty proud on what I allowed myself to watch and be dedicated for a couple of hours.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to watch all of the movies I looked forward to seeing in 2015. I still like to hold out and maybe they’ll turn up on some of our movie channels. I finally got to watch The Avengers: Age Of Ultorn on Starz. They premiered it on January 22nd! I’m hoping Starz or HBO airs Age Of Adaline so I don’t have to ask anybody to rent it out for me. What am I doing? This post is supposed to be about the films coming out this year! Since I loved doing these posts last year, I’ve decided to separate them out in equal parts. This will be for the ones being released in January to June 2016!

Dirty Grandpa (January 22nd) starring Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, and Julienne Hough

I don’t know how my sister would be so lucky to get a Zac Efron movie to come out on her birthday, but oh well! I saw a picture advertising this new film on Facebook. Julienne Hough had posted a picture and a little bit about her character. It wasn’t until like two days later that I found the trailer while on YouTube and I realized how bad I wanted to see this! I think it’s going to be very strange Robert De Niro playing such a flirt with Zac Efron, but that’s just me!

The Choice (February 5th) starring Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer

I’ll be honest, I watched the trailer for this and I was really turned off by the concept of this story. Maybe it’s because I don’t believe in love at first sight. I think I’ve also watched my fair share of Nicholas Sparks inspired films that I’m just over it. I just want to watch it because it has Teresa Palmer in it!

Deadpool (February 12th) starring Ryan Renyolds and Morena Baccarin

Everybody has had this movie on their lists since the beginning of last year. I’m still confused though, I thought Deadpool was a villain. I mean has anybody else seen Wolverine: Origins before? He and Wolverine have at it towards the end… I think this film will be a mixture of funny and lots of action, which I love the most!

Fun fact: If I watch this, it’ll be my first movie I’ve watched with Ryan Reynolds in it! 

Triple 9 (February 26th) starring Aaron Paul, Woody Harrelson, Norman Reedmus, and Kate Winslet

This is another movie I found by chance. I kind of fell in love with the trailer because it’s not about superheros or romance, it’s that “real” action and story line to it. I just want to see a movie with Norman Reedmus in it. I just want to see this guy act without all of the zombies, don’t judge me! It does look really good though!

Zootopia (March 4th) starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman

You can thank my friend Brittany for putting the trailer of this one on my Facebook the other day, I hadn’t even heard of it and of course now I want to see it! It just looks so cute! I’m not a big fan of sloths, but this trailer just cracked me up! I would be acting the same way that little bunny Judy was if somebody talked to me that slow!

Allegiant (March 18th) starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Miles Teller

I’ve officially caught up on these movies! Thank god! I’m really curious about the next stage of the storyline for Four and Tris. I want to know about what’s outside of the Wall and what are Evelyn’s intentions now that Jeannie is gone. I’m hoping this answers some questions for me, but I am super excited for the next installment to come out!

Superman vs. Batman: Dawn of Justice (March 25th) starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Even Peters, and Gal Gadot

I feel like I should have ended this list right here, because my excitement for this sucker is bigger than anything else! I honestly haven’t watched Man Of Steel since the end of 2014 because it effected me so much but I am really looking forward to seeing this purely because I want to see Ben Affleck prove EVERYBODY wrong as his role as Batman. Plus, Gal Gadot is playing “Wonder Woman” YES PLEASE! ♥

The Huntsman: Winters War (April 22nd) starring Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Emily Blunt, and Jessica Chastain

This is another one that has me all confused but apparently not enough that I didn’t leave it off the list! I have to say I loved Snow White and The Huntsman a lot! Mostly because of Charlize Theron playing this dark, evil character. Now I got two of them: Charlize and Emily Blunt. Two of my woman crushes in one movie, and on top of that you got Chris Hemsworth back playing the Huntsman. We finally get to see his character before he was sent off to find Snow White and what happened to his wife in the process. I don’t know if it’s a pre-squeal or not, I’m just excited!

Captain America: Civil War (May 6th) starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Anthony Mackie, and Scarlett Johannson

Time for a little Captain America/Iron Man action! I’m so freaking excited to see this movie! I’ll be wearing my Captain America shirt with pride the opening weekend. I can’t say anything else about this one!

X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27th) starring  James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender,  and Jennifer Lawrence

I’m really curious about this installment of the X-Men series! We finally get to see some of our favorites as younger/trying to learn to control their powers like Storm and Jean! I’m really stoked about the fact that Jubilee is being featured in the movie! When I was younger, I used to watch the cartoon episodes on Boomarang and she was my favorite character outside of Charles and Storm!  

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (June 3rd) starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and Stephan Arnell

The first film was amazingly good, like I’m being serious! It was also the movie my sister and I went to see in theaters. I’m pretty sure this was my choice because if Blondie had chosen it would have been a scary movie and I would have killed it even before the ending! Before this, I hadn’t been out to the movies since 2012. We weren’t raised on X-Men, TMNT, etc growing up. So we weren’t familiar with the franchise as everybody else.

Since we enjoyed the first film so much we’re actually looking forward to this next installment. I’m pretty sure we’ll be adding Brandon into our movie date, but that’s okay with me because he’s the one who sent the trailer to me! I didn’t even know that it was out yet. He sent it to me with a caption saying “The Flash is in it!” And you all think I’m superhero obsessed!!

Finding Dory (June 17th) starring Ellen DeGenres, Diane Keaton, and Ty Burrell

I loved Finding Nemo so much!! It’s such a cute, sad movie. I’ve seen those theories all over Facebook about the backstory of Nemo’s dad and Dory, but nonetheless it’s still adorable! Now that Dory’s getting her own movie, I’m a bit in the middle as I doubt it’ll stand up to Finding Nemo’s success but you never know!

Independence Day: Resurgence (June 24th) starring Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch, and Liam Hemsworth

This is also another film I’m feeling iffy about as I grew up with the original. My mom tried to save herself from what happened when I watched Men In Black the first time. Let’s just say between the both of them, I was not a fan of aliens. I still cringe at certain scenes in both films! I am glad that Jeff and Judd are back in the reboot, but would it better with Will Smith? Absolutely! Can I settle for Liam Hemsworth instead? Why did I just ask myself that question when I already know the answer? 😀

What are some of the movies you’re looking forward to seeing in the first six months of 2016?
