  • I apologize if there are some typos in this article, but I’m writing on my phone while my laptop is in the shop.
  • Either way, I wanted to talk about this news cuz, I’m not quite sure how to feel about it…

Premise

The Future of X-Men: Hugh Jackman Announces Departure for 2017

Preface

  • Now I’m sad…
  • (This story started off just as Jackman’s departure, but evolved into so much more…)

Premise

  • I actually heard about this story before a lot of the major news outlets began covering it.
    • I Like Hugh Jackman’s Facebook page (because he’s my favorite actor in Hollywood currently, and ya know, I enjoy seeing pictures of him with his dog) and I saw a post of his about 5 minutes after it came out.
  • Today, Hugh Jackman posted (on both his Facebook and Instagram) a picture of his hands, one with the Wolverine claws, and the caption: ..ONE LAST TIME.
  • And I wanted to talk about it, because I’m sad!
  • (Here’s the picture he posted.)

Insurgent Review

Preface

  • Wait, what? We’re actually doing a new movie review on My Movie Thoughts???

Premise

  • If you guys remember my Top 5 Worst Movies of 2014, you’ll remember I didn’t like Divergent.
    • I felt like it was a carbon copy of The Hunger Games, I didn’t think it had any depth or originality to it. (Check out the Honest Trailer below, because that is a clear statement of every issue I had with this movie.)
    • But I was really optimistic for the sequel because the end looked like the franchise was going in a really cool and original direction.
  • So following the rebellious efforts of Tris and Four (we’re still calling him that?) the two are trying to get support for their cause from some of the other Houses at Hogwarts.
  • And ultimately, there’s this test that’s also kinda looming over everything that questions what it means to be a Divergent.
  • And I’ll be honest, I know you guys REALLY want me to crap all over Insurgent, but compared to Divergent: it’s actually not that horrendous.

Parks and Recreation Review

Preface

  • Here’s a quote I’ve coined. “The least important thing in making a comedy is having it be funny.”
  • With that, let’s discuss.

Premise

  • Parks and Recreation is an NBC sitcom that started in 2009 and completed its run just a few weeks ago.
  • It’s about workers at the Parks and Recreation department in the small town of Pawnee, Indiana and all the triumphs or lack thereof they may or may not accomplish.
  • And well. It’s kinda good. Kinda?
