A Special Fan Art Thursday

It’s been a day since Loki but my thoughts are still very much on the God of Mischief’s elating episode and the series so far. Today, in honor of the series’ first three glorious episodes, I’m sharing some fan art inspired by each episode from the incomparable Uzuri Art. Enjoy!

The first episode of Loki really beat our favorite mischievous Asgardian down bit by bit until he was a crying, disheveled husk of himself. This piece encapsulates his “I don’t have time for this. I’m a God” personality in a nutshell.

Throwback Thursday: Finishing ‘Sherlock’: A ThrillIng Ride from Beginning to End

I think Benedict Cumberbatch is my favorite actor now and it’s because of this show.

My first introduction to Cumberbatch was via Star Trek: Into Darkness where he played the villain, Khan. I remember seeing him for the first time in the trailer and thinking, “Wow, he looks cool.” My father took my sister and me to see it and while I pretty much don’t remember anything about the movie or Cumberbatch in the film his impact in the trailer, alone, struck me.

His voice rumbled through my very soul as I watched the film for the first time at an IMAX midnight showing with my family. He was, in short, amazing!

‘Mulan’ And All of Its Flaws

Mulan is now available free of charge to all Disney+ streamers and so I thought it would be the perfect time to revisit the film after my second viewing yesterday (I was one of those people who paid $30 to see it early) and share my thoughts with you all.

In short, as a little girl, Mulan was my favorite Disney princess. She was brave and fierce, qualities in which inspired and wowed me. When I heard they were doing a live-action version I couldn’t be more excited, especially when they chose to forego songs to make it a more epic experience. I was like, “Heck yeah, let’s do this!”

And yet now, after a few viewings, I only see the flaws in Mulan instead of the good and boy are there a lot of flaws. So, let’s get to them.
