It seems I can't turn on the news, surf the Internet, or send a carrier pigeon without receiving some sort of bad news. I'll spare you the specifics; we've all heard something awful this week.
So here I am, with my blog, to attempt to provide a brief distraction; Maggie as a kid. In all my glorious weirdness. No joke, I was a strange one. Weren't we all?
So let's take a trip down memory lane. I hope it brightens your day a bit. Off we go!
I finally saw "Wonder Woman."
Christ, took me long enough. Even my grandma saw it before I did. Yeesh.
I'll admit, I'm not exactly great about seeing hot movies in a timely fashion. It took me a month before I saw "Hidden Figures." I had a countdown app downloaded specifically for the final "Hunger Games" movie and I still missed the midnight premiere. Quite frankly, I'm amazed I saw the last "Harry Potter" as soon as I did.
Personal flaws aside, the movie got seen. And yeah, I know I'm late to the party. By now, every woman, man and dog has seen this movie at least twice. So my reaction is probably one you've seen/read a million times.
I loved it. My God, it was amazing! I truly mean it. I'm relieved. I didn't think DC could be trusted with a good story after the hot garbage that was "The Green Lantern," but here we are.
Honestly, all of my feelings can be best summed up by this tweet...
Seriously, I feel like I could topple a government or get paid the same as my white male coworkers for equal work. Cinema is truly wonderful.
So let's keep this superhero party going. I don't pretend to have a vast knowledge of the Marvel and DC universe. When kids were losing their minds in comic books, I was more of a Yu-Gi-Oh kind of gal (Any sass on how I spent my free time as an 8-year-old will get you sent to the Shadow Realm.) So I'm not entirely sure which superhero to point a finger at and scream, "Her next! She gets the next movie!"
That being said, I've always got ideas whether they're wanted or not. So here ya go, six completely okay ideas for the next superhero powerhouse that I'll probably get to seeing eventually...
