My Favorite Things: February 2017

February 21st, 2017

I’ve been having trouble finishing a few blog drafts lately, but then I remembered that I haven’t written about recent favorites yet this year. Since I skipped it last month, this will cover things I’ve been loving the past couple of months!

Movie: Moana

I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a Disney musical movie this much. Moana was such a fun and beautiful movie to watch. I loved watching her journey, and the music, oh man the music. The past month or so, I’ve been addicted to its soundtrack, especially We Know The Way, How Far I’ll Go, Where You Are, and I Am Moana.

As much as I appreciate female characters fighting against stereotypes, it’s also nice when they’re just not there to begin with? No one questioned that Moana would be the next chief or tried to marry her off, everyone was forbidden from leaving the island (not just Moana), and Maui underestimated her because she was mortal, not because of her gender. Seriously, finally.

My Favorite Things: December 2016

December 5th, 2016

Though the My Favorite Things link-up is no longer running, I still wanted to post about my recent favorites every once in a while! For the time being, I’m still using the same name for the post series until I figure out a new one. Here is the last My Favorite Things for the year!

Show: Westworld

fav_westworld

Westworld is a HBO show based off of the 1973 film written and directed by Michael Crichton, who you might recognize as the author of Jurassic Park. You know, the book/movie about a dinosaur theme park that goes horribly wrong. Well, Westworld is a Western-themed park with realistic robots as hosts, and as you can guess, things start to go wrong as the hosts do things outside of their programming.

The show is really well done and is filled with surprises and plot twists. I just finished watching the first season, and I’m still in awe! There’s a lot of unanswered questions in the beginning that slowly unravel, and there’s also a few different storylines going on. I love media that explores artificial intelligence, so I’m really interested in seeing how they’ll continue in second season!

My Favorite Things: October 2016

October 11th, 2016

It’s time for another round of My Favorite Things, a link-up hosted by Raisa and Eirene! I’m sad that this is the last one in the link-up, so I wanted to make sure I participated this month. I’m going to miss it! I will probably continue the series on my own once in a while because it’s fun to recap things I’ve enjoyed recently :)

Stranger Things

fav_stranger_things

After being asked multiple times whether I’ve seen Stranger Things by friends, I can finally say yes. The show centers around the disappearance of a boy and all the weird things that happen afterwards. I love the 80s feel, and all of the mysterious things going on really pulled me in. I watched a couple episodes during the week, but then just binge watched the last 6 episodes on a Saturday. So good! I’m loving the Netflix series, so next up is to finish Luke Cage!
