Film Review: Black Panther (2018)

Image
So, yeah, I saw Black Panther. And I have thoughts, but not to be written in the same way as my other posts on films. I've even realized that I haven't actually done a proper movie review, not only without the title, but more like random words that just gave birth to themselves in my brain one day and I decided to rant and shout about them. Yep, I'm terrible at it. But this time I will get to talk about what I've seen properly, and see where it goes. And yes, actual spoilers for this review for those who felt cheated when I actually didn't in my other reviews and noticed; I promise. (He-he) So if you haven't seen Black Panther and want to, go right now and check it out! 
As for those who already have, here's what I think:



Movie Title: Black Panther

What Every New Blogger Should Read On How To Do A Blog Post (And Having A Blog In General)

Image
Blogging is a big deal. This I didn't really know until the idea of having my own blog came to me. 
And while I barely have been doing it for a year, I'm not going to lie and say that it's a piece of cake. If you have the idea yourself stuck in your head, there needs to be a really good reason for starting one. For me, it was a chance to show my writing and share my thoughts to the world, as well as making contact with writers just like me.
And taking that big step not only changed my schedule a little bit, but gave me new perspectives about how things are viewed and how people view things. Point is; if you think you might not be quite ready to do it, then you're not ready. Best to wait until that moment comes. But, to those who already have begun the Blogger's Journey, or have even made that decision right now; here's what you need to know on writing and having a blog. Because trust me, it's very important:



1. Make sure your blog posts work.

Making It Less False: How To Write Real Romance Novels

Image
It's Valentine's Day; the day when people buy the most pretty, tasty or even the most luxurious things for the love of their life. Or simply just getting them for yourself for the sake of the discount price. Now, while I'm not in fact an actual holiday person in any way, (which may be a little contradictory for some), I find it the most perfect time, with Wednesday being that date, to discuss the certain little matter known as romance novels. Those pretty, pink and red covers of ladies with huge smiles, heart shapes floating everywhere, and maybe, just maybe, a very "hot" guy  grinning back at the one who he wishes to be with forever. But this is only one of many, many examples of romantic fiction, and as we all know, much like the horror genre, has a mostly simple plot. Guy and girl meet each other, may or may not like their company, somehow fall in love, and last minute conflict. Not to say that really good romance can be written well, but as of recent, it hasn…

When Action Speaks Louder Than Words: Watching Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Image
Due to more procrastinating, I recently mostly took to myself to either browsing YouTube or watching a movie.
Or just plain looking at my current LibreOffice document in shame to deny I wasn't in not only writer's block but also in embarrassment in what I'd written. #writersproblems. So out of this, I decided to take my time in watching something that, in itself, is a pretty simple and strange but surprisingly thoughtful film that actually takes the risk of making it not complex like most movies usually expect to be, but still pull it off as an intriguing action flick. What film do I speak of? Mad Max: Fury Road.


I'll admit that I had no idea this was a film that apparently was really popular back in 2015, since I was still settling into native homeland and into a comfortable place with the rest of my family. But what really made my eyes pop and explode was really the fact that it was directed by George Miller. Who, if you were an early Millennial like me and at some poi…
