A hat thrown into the ring of “teenagers with supernatural abilities” genre at the back half of the aughts, The Covenant is a film about a group of male witches in Ipswich, Massachusetts (naturally) that took itself far too seriously, when really it should have embraced it’s utter ridiculousness from the start. Had it done so, it’s entirely possible that it would’ve fallen into that coveted cult classic realm. Alas, though it is rife with cheesy one liners and a laughable plot, I don’t think that status will ever befall this movie, much as I would love for it to.
SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
The Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it is ending.
Though we are a few movies away from it yet, the events in Avengers: Infinity War have begun to set the tone for what future movies from Marvel Studios may look like.
It’s no coincidence that at the end of Infinity War that the characters left standing are the old guard – Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Natasha Romanoff, Bruce Banner and Thor – the ones who have held the weight of the MCU on ...
HERE THERE BE SPOILERS. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.
It’s been over week since I’ve seen Avengers: Infinity War, and like most I’m still trying to piece together my thoughts about it, and reconcile how it made me feel. I enjoyed the movie for the most part, even though there are some things that I didn’t necessarily like, or don’t agree with. But at the end of the day, I think Marvel did the best they could with the story that they wanted to tell.
If you didn’t read last week’s post about the first half of my hottest goalies in the NHL list, you should do that now. It’s not only necessary context for this post, but it contains hot guys, and who would turn that down?
Have you ever watched a hockey game and wondered what’s behind that goaltender’s mask? The surprising answer a lot of the time? Hotness.
Whether the position of netminder inherently attracts the kind of hockey players who have good faces, or those goalie masks are simply doing their job and protecting teeth and noses, there are a large number of goaltenders presently playing in the NHL who are incredibly nice to look at.
It can be a moment that catches you off guard, like when they lift their...
Along with talent, some of the players bring something else to the table as well – looks to send fangirls and fanboys’ hearts swooning, and give fodder to the argument that women only like hockey because the players are cute (which you are absolutely within your right to shut down because heaven forbid you like a player who is also attractive).
“It won’t go in.”
I’m sitting on the toilet in the bathroom, my boyfriend is standing just outside the door. He doesn’t really offer any suggestions, he has none to give. All he can muster is, “That sucks.”
“It does suck.”
Tumblr’s boyfriend and Romanian dreamboat Sebastian Stan is a star on the rise lately, as he rightly should be! Having recently landed his first leading role in the political drama, The Last Full Measure, with Samuel L. Jackson, Stan is well on his way to becoming one of the greatest actors of our generation. He is an actor who can convey so much with just his eyes, as made evident in his performance as Winter Soldier in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The name Kathleen Kennedy should be a household one, and yet despite being third only to Steven Spielberg and Stan Lee in domestic box office receipts your average movie fan is not likely to have even heard of her.
Casey Affleck has been getting a lot of press lately, and not necessarily for the greatest of reasons.
I realized that I actually liked my pubic hair. Not that it’s a favourite feature of mine or anything, but I much prefer to maintain it to my standards than anyone else’s. My current partner, bless him, loves every inch of me, loves me just the way I am – as any partner should. And even if he didn’t, I wouldn’t care. My body is my own, no one else’s. I’m the one that has to live in this flesh and hair suit, I’m the one that’s going to decide how I want it to look.
The dump and chase mentality of the Minnesota Wild may have been fruitful in the past, but it’s time for the team to work on their offense in earnest.
The Avalanche and Bednar have been laying the groundwork for having a successful season, which will hopefully bear more fruit than previous seasons under the tutelage of Patrick Roy, who departed from the team in August.
