Spider-Man is no sidekick.

I watched Spiderman: Homecoming two weeks ago, the day before I flew off to my Indonesia vacation. Due to my travel, I’ve only been able to really gather my thoughts now, which in a way is a good thing as I managed to revisit my views of the movie. I initially rated it very good, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized its flaws.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is most definitely a huge improvement over the last Spider-Man movie, which if we’re going to be honest was such a disaster that they had to reboot the franchise yet again in less than a couple of years. The new movie, of course, is a fairly good movie in and of itself, regardless if its predecessor set a low bar or not. (continue reading…)

Totally deserves her own series after last year’s sleeper hit.

“Coming Soon” can’t be soon enough.

Zombies be sad.

Another legend gone: one who is responsible for the modern zombie film.

I just love this clip that showed up on my newsfeed recently. Apparently, it’s from a Thai TV series called Slam Dance, which now I need to watch in full. With subtitles, hopefully.

Shutty upeth, Piers.

Piers Morgan, he who is an international douchebag, just routinely gets owned by people, including J.K. Rowling herself. Who the fuck thinks he can take on J.K. Rowling, especially on social media?

However, the best this year, so far, goes to his Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid, whose epic #shade will go down in history. Check it out.

Should’ve Been A Sperm Whale

This Thai commercial I watched a few months ago still has me cracking up. That was quite a… climax. It would’ve even more hilarious if they’d used a sperm whale instead.

TGIF! Enjoy the coming weekend. We’re halfway through 2017, damn.

The Bellas are back, and this one looks like it would be better than the so-so last and closer to the awesome first one. I’m down with it.
