    10 “Old” Movies to Watch This Halloween

    Movies and books are my addictions. Growing up, I watched a lot of horror movies. Some people prefer old movies and some prefer new movies. No judgement on movie ages here! If it’s good I’ll watch it. This list of old movies (in no particular order) to watch on Halloween contains some classic and not-so-classic choices. 1. Halloween There is one tradition for Halloween that I stick to most of the time. It’s watching Halloween, always the original, on Halloween. It isn’t the scariest movie of all time but it has a definite creepy factor mixed with a great theme song. Thank you, John Carpenter! Any Michael Myers fans out…

    Preakness Surprise

    This is the first year that I actually paid attention to the Kentucky Derby, etc. and placed bets. The first round didn’t work out so well for me. The second round almost ended well. I bet on Rombauer. Seeing him speed past Midnight Bourbon and Medina Spirit was a thrill and threw me out of my seat when he was so far behind! I’m so happy for Rombauer but my bet on Rombauer was an exacta box bet, which means it didn’t work out for me winning anything. Epic fail! Up next is Belmont. We are about 3 weeks away from the final race(s) of this once a year event.…

    Arrow Actor – Code 8

    Arrow eventually came to an end, which was upsetting for most if not all fans. The series had a good run. Unfortunately, we missed seeing Emily Bett Rickards’s character, Felicity Smoak, in the final season of Arrow. Luckily, we were able to see her in the final episode! Not being able to see Felicity throughout the last season was one of the biggest let downs. She left for good reason, though, to pursue her acting career further. Trying to locate other TV shows or movies with Arrow, Stephen Amell, playing in it? Check out Code 8. It’s available on Netflix. Not only is Stephen Amell a main character but so…

    WCTH Season 9 Theories

    Okay, Hearties, When Calls the Heart season 8 ended with a bang! Elizabeth finally chose! It feels like the Hearties have been waiting 10 years for this moment. Jack will forever remain a favorite but with him gone Elizabeth can’t pick him. Instead she has been torn between Nathan and Lucas. Her heart tugged her back and forth between the two. Perhaps she was afraid of choosing the wrong person, which makes it all the more realistic. *Warning* Spoilers ahead! Proceed with caution. You have been warned, Hearties! I am neither solely Team Lucas nor Team Nathan. Elizabeth’s relationship or possible future relationship with either of them seemed that it…

    Shadow and Bone Released From the Shadows

    So, it happened. I finally took the plunge and watched Shadow and Bone on Netflix. However, I haven’t read the books even though they’re really popular. What can I say about this new book to screen series? Don’t worry, spoiler free here! But I will say this… Mal gets on my nerves at times. Alina is definitely one of my favorites. Genya is precious and needs to remain in a bubble. The Darkling needs to forever exist in this series or the ship (non-existent or not) will sink (possibly get hit by an iceberg first) and this fangirl’s heart will shatter. Hopefully, Netflix is listening. Also, The Crows, especially Inej,…

    Home & Family Canceled

    A lot of shows cancel when we least expect it, especially good ones. The latest show that is set to cancel is Hallmark’s Home & Family. A very, very poor decision in my opinion. It looks like the Hallmark channel doesn’t realize the amount of viewers they are losing as well. Some people have decided to not support Hallmark after this bold move. My Mother is one of those people. She has chosen to continue to watch Home & Family but will not be watching anything Hallmark related. She has already banned Hallmark altogether aside from Home & Family. Home & Family is a very rare show that isn’t a…

    Three Shows Syfy Shouldn’t Have Canceled

Without further ado… Wynonna Earp Modern day meets western with Wyatt Earp’s great granddaughter as a main character and you’ve got a good story idea already. After throwing in demons, an angel, a half human-half lizard… well, you’ve got a good Syfy cocktail! Wynonna Earp fans are currently in the fight to keep the show going. It was supposed to be canceled after season three but fans fought…
