My favorite of Disney Junior's Muppet Moments so far. Very cute.
:: Speaking of Muppets, here's Cookie Monster in another Crumby Pictures parody: Jurassic Cookie.
:: An oral history of one of my all time favorite movies, The Right Stuff.
:: A Complete Guide To The Mythical History Of Westeros
:: Why Franklin Richards Is The Most Ridiculous Character In All Of Comics
:: I haven't seen Tomorrowland, and I'm not sure if I'm even interested at this point, but when I do see it, it will probably be long after it's been on DVD. io9 has an interesting article (spoilers if you're being careful) about the film's supposed optimism.
:: The trailer for The Martian. I have mixed feelings about it. I read the book a second time, and it actually reads as much more exciting if you skip over all of the stuff that doesn't take place on Mars until the action climax. It's much more remote, much more a story of survival, if you don't have all of this stuff going on outside of it that breaks up the tension. It's the same in this trailer; all of the stuff with Matt Damon on Mars is fascinating and exciting, and all of the stuff with Jessica Chastain or on Earth is dull with people staring off, feeling the precious importance of the plot and their place in it, and I'm just not into that.
:: Teasers for Disney's Zootopia (which is super-obnoxious) and Pixar's The Good Dinosaur. I once thought I'd never get tired of Disney and Pixar, but that certainly did not prove to be the case.
:: Undecided on The Man from UNCLE, though I'll probably watch it when it comes on HBO. Some of the vibe I'm getting off it is reminding me a little too much of Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman as poor excuses for The Avengers. (Plus, I found Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes tedious.)
:: Lego Jurassic World is finally here, and Lego Avengers is coming! I need money!
I have been unable to get hooked on a new author ( my fault, not theirs) but after reading just a few pages of my grandfather's WWI diaries, I am hooked. Among the pages are cards and pictures and this is one of her earliest posts home, not much, it was all they were allowed. #military #found #foundpaper #wwi #documents #war #pow #veterans #vfw #greatbritain #prisoner #cool #urbanarcheology #family #memoirs #history #germanempire #england #postcard #restricted #censored #interesting
