prequels, sequels, and remakes… oh my!

First of all, I completely realize that I have been slacking when it comes to these updates. I could come up with a million excuses but we all know that excuses are like belly buttons aka everybody’s got some kind of version of one; ergo, I won’t bother. It’s not like I haven’t watched any cinematic adventures during the time of my impromptu hiatus, because I absolutely have. A day without watching a movie is like a day without eating breakfast… it’s possible, but, it’s the most important meal of the day!

Now, it’s not to say that I dislike this movie, I just didn’t end up being that big of a fan of it. If that makes sense. It was like I went to a restaurant, ordered a delicious blt, and ended up getting a delicious reuben. While it is indeed scrumptious, it just wasn’t what I had a taste for/what I wanted. I mean the reuben is good and it still gets consumed… it’s just slightly disappointing.
