Review:

Alright, so it’s a time travel show, I had to watch it. I started the first episode and my husband happened to see it, huge mistake. Future Man is hilarious and because of that now I can’t binge the show like it was made to be consumed. I have to watch an episode a night, at most, because my husband is loving it and wants to watch it with me.

The humor is crude, the future bleak, and there are several time jumps. I’m really enjoying the show, I’m not finished yet, but I’m already hoping there’s a second season.

If you want to watch all episodes are currently available on Hulu.com and the way each episode ends it’s made to be binged. Since they’re only thirty minutes long it’s easy to consume and so much fun.

4/5

Side note: Wolf is freaking hilarious and gets better with each episode.

Plot:

Two young brothers are drawn into an intergalactic adventure when their house is hurled through the depths of space by the magical board game they are playing.

Review:

Loved Jumanji growing up and I’ve wanted to see this for a while. My husband put it in to entertain our daughter and I ended up watching.

At first I had no idea what was playing and couldn’t understand why my husband would be watching something with such bratty children. They were horrible and he just looked at me and said, “This is our future.” Not at all disconcerting.

The movie was fun and basically a space version of Jumanji, but I’m totally fine with that.

I loved that they made fun of the sister for her reaction to a certain thing.

I really liked the movie and it will probably hold a special place in my heart because it’s the first movie we’ve sat through as a family.

4.5/5

Review:

So happy to finally see a good movie. The last two were so bad I was starting to get depressed.

It’s been a while since I’ve read the books and I’ve heard that they changed some things, but I thought that they got the tone perfect. I was properly sad by the time it ended and wished, yet again, that I owned the books so I could read the ending. Though there’s a ton of even more sad stuff to come.

Great addition to the series and really looking to the last installment.

5/5

Plot:

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem.

Review:

I really enjoyed these books and while I thought the first movie was good it just didn’t have the same excitement for me that the book had. This movie, I thought, was much better. As soon as it was over I wanted to watch the next movie. Since I couldn’t I wanted to read the next book.

I haven’t seen any of these movies in theaters but if I can I might try and see the next one.

4/5
