Hi! I’m OnlyAlexB, and as you may have noticed that last week I promised every weekend, and today is Monday…. That’s mostly because I was busy Saturday and didn’t feel particularly up to it yesterday when I should have. So let’s kinda go over the past week and I’ll tell you what I did, wanted to do and some personal insights on movies and things that hopefully don’t go too, too long.
I had a dream about The Lion King, but it’s not what you think. I was in a writer’s meeting and we were discussing what the name of the film should be and I kept on suggesting long and complicated names for some reason. Of course most of the names got shut down and that’s basically most of what I can remember of it. I have idea what this signifies other than, “A lion cub whose father dies and he parties in the forest, but then he comes back.” is a bad name for a film. (Unless it’s an art film)
I watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens (plus Bonus Features). This was only my second time watching it, and I’m still not sure about it. The way I watch movies is pretty weird, and critical, so the first time I saw it I didn’t like how it ended (y’know, with the guy not talking) and the second time it was a bit better knowing what to catch, like Pegg as Plutt and the way the light moves on Kylo Ren’s face during the bridge scene. Stuff like that is cool. To not be too critical, I will say that there’s a lot of things that I hope to see in the next two films and hopefully they include:
- Snoke dying at Kylo Ren’s hands. I think Star Wars 8 will be all about Rey & Luke vs. Ren & Snoke. It’s not going to end well. My fantasy booking of the sequels include Luke somehow dying from a mistake Rey makes, then in an ode to Return of the Jedi, Ren will struggle with the Light & Dark and turn against Snoke. But not towards the Light like Vader. Like many dark apprentices before him, Kylo Ren with overthrow his master. The reason I like this is because I didn’t want another Palpatine, and thought it would be much intriguing to see a dark side user without a master. But, since we didn’t get that, I’d rather see Snoke out of the picture in 8 rather than 9 and have Star Wars 9 ALL about Kylo Ren as the main villain. Also I don’t see Luke surviving these movies.
- Chewbacca not dying. Because he’s basically everyone’s favourite character and I don’t see it serving a purpose more than some of the other characters dying. So, yes, please no kill Chewy. K?
And to move this along I’ll just put this as who I think will die in which movie.
Who dies in Star Wars 8?: Ungar Plutt, Greg Grunberg (probably), Luke Skywaker, Supreme Leader Snoke.
Star Wars 9: Poe Dameron (early on too), Princess Leia (maybe, I’m still not sure where she’ll fit in), Rey or Finn’s parents (or both, whatever reveal they do with both of them), Kylo Ren (I actually think the final movie might be more about Finn than Rey, maybe trying to find his parents or resisting his pull to the dark side. An in the end, I honestly don’t think Rey will kill Kylo, especially if they’re related. But Finn possibly will)
And then Rey & Finn can go on and live happily ever after (until Star Wars 10 in the year 2045)
I read the books of Lucifer. Now, hear me out. The Vertigo graphic novels that the TV show Lucifer is based on. Okay? I’m not a Satanist. It was my second or third time re-reading he series and I wanted to remember what happened in the comics so I could possibly piece together where they may go on the show. The comics are completely different from the show, which isn’t surprising but it kinda sucks. Unless Chloe Decker (female LAPD cop on the show) or her daughter Trixie to take the place of Elaine from the comic (basically the spawn of a human & angel who becomes the new holy spirit after Yahweh abdicates the throne). It would explain why Lucifer is weak near Chloe on the show. Also in the TV season 1 finale (spoilies ahead) Lucifer says “Mum” has escaped from hell. If they follow the comics, it’s probably Lilith buuuttt… since Supernatural already did that, it might be ‘Mother Nature’ (makes sense, kinda) or another great character I’d like to see from the comics on the show would be the Japanese goddess Izanami. Then again, since the show is SO, SO different from the comics I don’t expect any comic characters to show up. (Fenris as an enemy would be cool though. Especially if he went on a killing spree to find his memories..ooooh…CALL ME LUCIFER WRITERS!!)
Thursday & Friday
Old Episodes of Jimmy Fallon & ROH, also I got called into work early on Friday. Not much done. Lazy days…
Saturday was pretty awesomesauce, but it was also a bit long too. Woke up around 8 ish, hit the bank, then went to WEM Waterpark basically from open to close. All day at WEM for a birthday was the bees knees bomb diggity. I didn’t do any scary slides cause the idea of a floor giving way underneath me sounds terrifying. After a face-full of chlorine and kid pee, I was feeling pretty tired, I went to a friend’s house we ate some spasghetti and cheesecake and played Smash Bros. Also I pocketed SO many Werthers, so, so many… good times, good times.
I watched The Fugitive, it was meh. The sis came over and we ate steak, it was chill.
That’s my week. I have some more stuff I want to talk about, I could honestly do a full essay on Lucifer or Star Wars, but for your sake I won’t and will keep you updated on the upcoming weeks. My Mondays & Tuesdays are gonna be limited cause I’m working full-time now. So we’ll see what I can do, I got some ideas for a video hopefully in the next coming weeks. Stay posted and stay sassy…
