Top Ten: Things I Disliked About the 2nd Hobbit Movie

the-hobbit-desolation-of-smaug-movie-poster As a Lord of the Rings fangirl, I loved The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. But it is my least favorite of all the movies. The first Hobbit movie was so much better in my eyes, even though it gives my friends fits when I say so. I saw the movie twice in theaters and still didn’t feel like I could write a proper review. I felt so let down during the movie. It’s full of great moments I loved (see next week’s list), but my overall feeling each time I walked out of theaters was disappointment. So I waited until I could watch it again at home before writing up a list.

Quiz: Which Marvel Movie Villain Are You?

Quiz: Which Marvel Movie Villain Are you?

Answer:
MarvelBaddie

Thoughts: Well, this I did not expect! I don’t quite seem my resemblance, to be honest. I do like a good plan, sure. And I certainly can be moody and misunderstood. So all right. But I think the flaw in this quiz is my own; I don’t consider myself a villain at all, and I lack ambition. But, hey, I wouldn’t mind having Loki’s powers… or his brother for that matter…

Top Ten: Marvel Knowledge Holes

marvellogothingDespite the fact that Batman is my favorite superhero, I’m definitely a Marvel girl. Marvel characters are my kind of people. Marvel stories are ones I can relate to. Marvel’s world is my world.

However, I get my Marvel where I can– various movies, comics and graphic novels I come across at used book sales or on deep discount at comic book stores, various cartoon TV show versions, various graphic novels I find at the library. Because of this, I don’t have a very good mental picture of the various Marvel universes or their timelines. Everything is all mixed up in my brain.

I know just enough to know that I don’t know very much. I have big gaps in my knowledge that sometimes cause me “oohhhh!” light bulb moments of realization when those gaps get filled in… and sometimes cause me massive amounts of confusion and guilt. I figured this might be a great source of laughter for those of you with more knowledge than me (which is practically everyone) and a way for me to come clean. Feel free to try to explain things to me. But, more helpful, would be a list of comics/episodes that would let me properly fill in the gaps. I’ve tried Wikis and they leave me with more questions than answers.

Quiz: How Big Of A Harry Potter Fan Are You Actually?

Repost. Sorry. My scheduling abilities are miserable, apparently.

Quiz: How Big Of A Harry Potter Fan Are You Actually?

Answer: 76/100
HPFanQuiz

Thoughts: I’m not entirely sure why I bothered filling this out, because I know I’m a big fan and it only makes me sad that I can’t check every box on this list. I WAS especially thrilled to be able to check off EVERYTHING from 67-71. I love that I’ve been able to visit all those places. It was a little sad that I got into HP as an adult so I couldn’t check off a short series about growing up with the books. But I made up for that in other places.

Fandom Spotlight Day 30: Harry Potter

For the month of April, I’m breaking out of my usual “format” and showcasing one of my favorite fandoms a day, so I will have shiny things to make me smile every day of my birthday month. When I sat down to write the list of my top 30 fandoms, I found the task terribly hard. How do I choose just 30? My apologies to all my beloved fandoms left off the list. I’m using random.org to determine what fandom gets what day.
