IT Chapter Two - Review

This is the conclusion for the film IT from 2017. Now, I will say that I loved the first part better than this one BUT I did also enjoy this one. I loved Bill Hater and James McAvoy. They really stood out among the cast. That's not to say the rest was bad. I think all the actors did a fine job. I will say that the adult Bev isn't as cool as the kid version but that's just my personal opinion.

I love that there was more humor in this one because of the humor and kinda bad CGI I wasn't scared at all. I usually get freaked out easily in scary movies. So if you want to dive into horror without being scared shirtless, this movie is a good start!

I wished there had been more of Pennywise as the clown in the movies vs the CGI monsters because they're just not as scary as the actual clown. Again, just my personal opinion.

My biggest gripe and this is just personal to me, it won't affect most people but I do want to mention it because if someone had told me I wouldn't have gone to see this one. Before the movie starts there's a warning for the flashing lights and man do they use flashing lights! There is one scene in the funhouse that is seen in the trailer and then most of the ending... so I had to cover my eyes or hide into my partner's shoulder for most of the ending which sucked because it was so good from the parts I did see and what I heard.

I've heard a lot of complaints about the runtime or the pacing and I didn't have any issues with it. The pacing was perfect! Nothing was ever too slow or boring. The runtime didn't fill bloated or overstuffed. I thought it was great!

Overall, I really enjoyed this and fully recommend unless you have issues with strobe lights as I do. Then stay away!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
