Take one novelist making her screenwriting debut.
Add in the magical world she created some twenty years ago, but in a new continent and era.
Throw in some of the best actors in the world right now, including an Academy Award winner and star who shines in an ensemble.
Top it off with the director behind some of the most successful fantasy films of the decade and what you get is something….
The Dominion invasion is over. The heroes have gone home to their home cities and/or home dimensions. The Flash has had a brief intermission from both Savitar and Doctor Alchemy, but that’s about to change with this episode. A visit to Earth-Two to see Jay Garrick is probably the best present I can think of for the holiday break, but there’s more, good and bad on its way. Meet me after the super-speed extra-dimensional jump, for my thoughts on “The Present.”
When temperatures drop and there’s a nip in the air, there’s nothing better than curling up under a cozy blanket with a nice cup of tea. This year, instead of giving friends and family just any old tea, give them a tea inspired by their favorite fandom from Adagio Teas. They have tea blends for almost every fandom.
Since winter has actually come, sip on a variety of Game of Thrones blends.
For the rebel, you can get the entire Suicide Squad.
You can boil up an array of Wizarding World potions,
And what could be better than settling down to watch The Doctor’s Christmas Day Special with a mug of Whovian Feels.
A sample tin, with fun fandom artwork, costs $5.00, or you can purchase an entire collection, like the entire potions collection for $24.00.
If you’re particularly fond of that special geeky guy or gal, you can head to Society 6 where they have numerous mugs to match that perfect fandom tea.
The cliffhanger last episode introduced what is to be one of the major big bads this season, Savitar, the god of speed, but I think the Flash will have his hands full this time with a more closer, intimate threat – his friend and Team Flash mate Caitlin Snow is on her way to becoming Killer Frost! Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on this week’s Kevin Smith-directed episode “Killer Frost!”
Throw on some jazz, pour a glass of Giggle Water, and curl up with your favorite bowtruckle, we’re talking Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, on this spoiler-free review.
It was a fairly magical weekend at the box office, though perhaps not up to wizarding standards. Here’s what went down:
This weekend’s number one was, unsurprisingly, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the beginning of a brand new series set in the Harry Potter world. The movie had a lot going for it, including franchise director David Yates and an original screenplay written by JK Rowling. However, perhaps the lack of recognizable characters may have been one of the reasons that the film could only muster up $76 million in its debut. While that number would be outstanding for so many films, considering the billion dollar numbers the Harry Potter movies have accumulated, the studio expected more (and to be honest, so did I). It will certainly be interesting to see how the film holds up over the coming weeks, since there are five films set to be released in this new franchise.
