Random News: Heros and Monsters

Hello Lovely Readers,

Today I bring you a mix of TV and movie news that I hope you will enjoy. First up is about a new Superhero TV show. The first trailers/sneak peaks at The Flash have just been released. You can watch the sneak peak below or click here for more information. It looks rather promising, and seems to be set in the same world as The Arrow, who also appears in the sneak peek. However, right now I do not have any plans to watch. I am just too busy and The Flash was never one of my favorites, in fact I just remember him being slightly annoying in the cartoons.

The second find for today is 16 Fascinating Things You Didn’t Know About Maleficent. This is a great list of random facts about Maleficent from both the old animated Sleeping Beauty and the new Maleficent movie. There were some interesting facts about her origin and the meaning behind a lot of her attributes. As someone with a soft spot for villains, I really enjoyed this list.
Lastly is a great comparison between the 1998 version and the newest version of Godzilla. This link contains spoilers, so don’t click through unless you are ok with that. It is interesting because Frances and I are both big Godzilla fans, but come from very different backgrounds in the fandom, and this article sort of gets to some of those differences. The article argues, rather well, the advantages of the 1998 version, and I have to say I agree with most of them. However, I think it overlooked the links to the really classic Godzilla movies, which the newest movie had more of. At the very least Frances and I will talk about this in our review of the new movie (which should be coming to you soonish).

So are you guys excited for The Flash or Maleficent? I know I am excited for Maleficent and will hopefully seeing that soon.

Until next time,

About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
