Dusting Off the Shelf: Letter V

26 Jun

My planned V film was a miss because it turned out I had already seen it. But completely forgotten. So… I’ve been hunting for a replacement. Netflix hooked me up with Vampire Academy, but it took a few attempts to watch the whole thing… So I’m finally back, and ready to tell you all about it!

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 4, “An Innocent Man” / Ep. 5, “Damaged”

15 Jun

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads!  When we last left Oliver Queen, he was stopping another bad guy in assassin Deadshot, and in the middle of this, Diggle got injured.  So Ollie took him back to heal him at his lair, and was there waiting for him as he woke up to see his client is not quite the damaged rich boy he thought he was.  So now what is he going to do?

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 2, “Honor Thy Father” / Ep. 3, “Lone Gunmen”

9 Jun

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads!  We started off with introducing Oliver Queen back to the world after being missing & presumed dead for five years.  But he came back with a mission: to bring justice on the criminals who have corrupted his hometown of Starling City.  And now, he’s got a lot of work to do, and we got some recapping to do too… Continue reading

A Not-A-Review Review of Wonder Woman

6 Jun

This is not a review. I have to start out with that because I am not a film critic, at least no more than the next Average Joe, nor am I qualified to review a film by talking about the elements that were done to create it. What this is is a collection of the thoughts I had while watching Wonder Woman and afterwards. The simplest way to describe my reaction is this- I loved it. Stop now if you haven’t seen the film as I cannot be held responsible for any spoilers found herein.

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 1: “Pilot”

1 Jun

Welcome, Arrowheads!  As many longtime NerdLush readers are aware, I started recapping Arrow here around season two, but for a while now, have wanted to go back and recap the first season.  With season five now over (and a significant part of Oliver Queen’s story ended), it seemed like the best time to go back and revisit Arrow season one.   Continue reading

ARROW Season 5×23, “Lian Yu” recap

25 May

Welcome back, Arrowheads! It’s season finale time, and last time we were all here, we got quite a setup.  Ollie was put in the unenviable position to free our season’s big bad, Adrian Chase, when Adrian’s associates kidnapped all of Team Arrow, even his hidden son!  Discovering Adrian had made his way to Lian Yu to setup some final confrontation between the two, Ollie knew he had to get some help, and enlisted Malcolm Merlyn and Nyssa al Ghul.  But once they all got to the island, he still had to get one more hand to help him in this fight: the imprisoned Deathstroke/Slade Wilson!  How will this wobbly team-up going to fare against all those bad guys?  Well, before we get to the shocking result, let’s check in on another ticking clock… Continue reading

Dusting Off the Shelf: Letter T

22 May

Me again. How’s things? I actually didn’t have a lot of T’s in my collection, but I’ve got one that I’ve owned for almost a decade but never bothered to watch because… honestly, I don’t remember why. I know I wanted to see it in the theater but when it came out I was in the middle of cramming all the courses ever in order to finish my bachelors… anyways, it’s sat on my shelf and today I broke down and finally watched Tristan & Isolde.

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter S

19 May

I’m a bit late with this one… sorry about that but I got caught up in Netflix. I’m back, though, and this week I decided it was time for something ridiculous- Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse!

ARROW Season 5×22, “Missing” recap

18 May

Welcome back, Arrowheads!  We’re on the tail end of the season, and it seems we are going out on a good note.  The big bad of the season, Adrian Chase, has been captured and imprisoned, which I’m sure is a relief to everyone in Team Arrow.  So I guess there’s no big city ending threat this season and the next two episodes is gonna be the gang just kicking back and enjoying some quiet time catching up with their favorite books or TV shows.

Yeah, I didn’t think that either, especially after seeing that grin on Adrian in his jail cell.  So let’s see what’s in store now for the Team…in a minute… Continue reading
