The 10 Best Movies of 2015 So Far
July is here, so it seems a fitting time to take stock of where we are and what we’ve seen, and run down my picks for the 10 best movies released in 2015 so far. I’ve seen 61 new movies this year, and while I always enjoy my time in theaters, it still means I’ve... Read more »

This post is HIGHLY RATED. * 4.9 out of 5 STARS!!!*

This post is HIGHLY RATED. * 4.9 out of 5 STARS!!!*
I noticed a new trend yesterday. Well, maybe it’s not a *new* trend, but it’s new to me. Maybe it’s an old trend and I’ve been falling for it for years now. It all started with this: I decided I needed a new makeup brush. I bought a new thing of foundation at Ulta and... Read more »

Movie Review: Jurassic World

Movie Review: Jurassic World
JURASSIC WORLD Genre: Sci-Fi Action Rating: PG-13 Running Time: 124 mins. Premise: 22 years after the events in Jurassic Park, the dinosaur theme park experience is in full operation, luring 22,000 visitors a day.  But, in order to satiate audience demand, the park’s geneticists have tampered with the DNA coding and created a new hybrid...

The perfect female protagonist

The perfect female protagonist
I often (probably too often for my husband’s taste) complain about female representation in film and in movies. Mad Max = Good. Jurassic World = Bad. Sometimes it’s difficult for me to articulate what constitutes positive and negative portrayals of women. Sometimes it’s hard to talk about what I want without asking writers and directors...

Two Nights, Two Champions: How Hockey Did Winning Better Than Basketball

Two Nights, Two Champions: How Hockey Did Winning Better Than Basketball
Let me preface this: I am not a hockey fan. I’m not a Blackhawks fan, or, really, I’m not not a Blackhawks fan. I don’t wish them ill will or anything. I just don’t really pay attention. But I did watch the final game of the series, and I thought the way it ended was... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Mother's Mercy

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Mother's Mercy
It’s a season finale, but instead of our favorite characters’ storylines being wrapped up neatly and nicely, most of our heroes are stuck in cliffhangers and have found themselves on the losers’ list. Ouch. Let’s see how the finale treated everyone. Enjoy this post? Click like on the Hammervision Facebook page and join the party.... Read more »

Game of Thrones recap: Mother's Mercy

Game of Thrones recap: Mother's Mercy
Looks like Game of Thrones blew all its Mother’s Mercy dollars on CGI-ing Lena Headey’s face on some naked lady’s body. That’s why we got to see so little of Stannis’s war against the Boltons. Way to budget, show. This was the Season Five finale and we didn’t get the Mother’s Mercy Lady Stoneheart ending... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Dance of Dragons

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Dance of Dragons
I have MANY THOUGHTS about Stannis. I just…I’m having a hard time understanding why the Game of Thrones writers would spend so much time getting us on Stannis’s side this season only to have him do that horrible thing he did. Anyway. Here are this week’s winners and losers. SPOILERY PREDICTION… … Here it comes.... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: The Dance of Dragons

Game of Thrones Recap: The Dance of Dragons
While the end of this Game of Thrones was pretty spectacular-looking, it was also kind of sloppy and couldn’t hold a candle (or a dragonfire-lit torch) to the Hardhome fight last weekend. But ANYWAY. Let’s get to it. Since first is the worst… Dorne: This was the thing that came to mind during the previously-ons... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Hardhome

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Hardhome
Well, that was a fabulous episode of Game of Thrones. In rewatching it for screen grabs this morning, I was really struck by how great the Hardhome stuff was. Just perfect. This is how you enhance the books, TV writers. And nary a rape in sight! A few things, that may be spoilery, so proceed... Read more »
