She Geek Critique – Wakanda’s Warrior Women

If you’re like the majority of the movie going public, you saw Black Panther this past weekend (it is one of the highest grossing opening weekends ever, after all). And sure, I could do a review of it, but that’s what everyone else is doing – plus, you already know it’s a fantastic movie. What I want to talk about is female representation in the film and what Marvel has done right, where so many other movies have failed. (Don’t worry if you haven’t seen the movie, there aren’t any plot spoilers.)  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Wakanda’s Warrior Women

She Geek Critique – The Good and The Bad

I’m not into comedy television much, at least not the typical sitcoms. So when a friend suggested I might want to try The Good Place, staring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, it took me a little while before I got to it. In fact, it wasn’t until a couple months after the first season ended that I finally gave it a try. And then I ended up binging the entire season over a weekend.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – The Good and The Bad

She Geek Critique – Story After Story

Perhaps it’s because I grew up watching Twilight Zone, Tales from the Darkside, Outer Limits and others that I enjoy watching anthology shows.

She Geek Critique – Jumanji Levels Up

Over the weekend, I finally got around to seeing Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Now when word first got out that they were making a new version, a lot of people were doing the “no, you can’t replace the original” dance. But that’s never what was intended. This version is actually a sequel to the 1995 movie starring Robin Williams. And, as much as fans of the original might not want to hear this, Welcome to the Jungle (WttJ) is a much better movie.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Jumanji Levels Up

She Geek Critique – Spinning Around

If you’re a fan of Supernatural, you know that the much anticipated spinoff Wayward Sisters is on its way. And last week, they gave viewers a “back door” pilot episode focusing on the female hunters saving Sam and Dean. It was a good episode and did a great job of introducing the spinoff. It got me thinking about spinoffs in general and what works when sending them off on their own.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Spinning Around
