Prop 22

What’s that? You thought this was just about movies and TV? Nope. It’s Reviews For No Reason – The Opinion No One Asked For. None of you asked for it, but here’s my Review of Prop 22.

The Dumbledore Conundrum

The Dumbledore Conundrum (as it will soon be widely known) is when an older man chooses a younger man’s fate without the younger man’s consent. It’s how Dumbledore decides that Harry is going to die, without telling Harry about the sacrifice that’s required of him. For most of my life, I have accepted this as a narrative device – after all, aren’t some people wiser, don’t they have more information and a better perspective over the situation and we need them to make decisions?

The Searcher – Tana French

Just as I was unable to forget the climate of our country while reading this book, Cal could not escape it by moving to Ireland. He soon found himself tied up in a mystery surrounding a timid kid named Trey and her recently missing brother. In trying to find the answers behind her brother’s disappearance, Cal runs into a whole mess of trouble when the small, tight-knit village closes ranks around him.

Cruel Summer

I’m not sure how I’ll feel about Cruel Summer in the end, but I know that I can’t stop watching it now. Especially because there’s nothing better on.

First Prize Bravery

I don’t welcome pain into my life, but pain is inevitable. When it comes, there’s no fighting it. It comes in waves and they are going to crash over me regardless, so I’ve become a “dance in the rain” kind of person. Heartbreak and pain become food and oxygen to writers, they are what fuel us.

Jupiter’s Legacy and the Imagined Burden of White Guilt

In both timelines, he has intense tunnel vision focused only on “the greater good” which, as I’ve written about previously, is the WORST ethical code anyone can have. While I can appreciate that it’s tough to be a super hero, I don’t have sympathy for a man who refuses to bend by claiming that he can’t buckle under the immense strain of his leadership. If the role is that heavy, it should be shared.

Manic Monday on Mumblecore…kind of

Gilmore Guys has what some may refer to as “a rough start”. It’s two dudes, Kevin and Demi, and Kevin was a long time fan of the show with Demi being a pair of fresh eyes. They probably spend 60% of their recorded time talking about things that aren’t related to Gilmore Girls, but they’re 100% entertaining.

Throw Way Back Thursday – Dashboard Confessional

A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar. The essential soundtrack for the emotional teenager in the early aughts. All of us that lived in the angst listened to Hands Down on repeat and wished for that date. In fact all of my dates in high school were compared to that song, it was a […]

The Mitchells Vs The Machines

It’s children’s movie week on Reviews For No Reason, apparently. But hey, I like kid’s media. I’m reading a children’s mystery book series right now. I enjoy the simplicity – not to say that the media is simple in a bad way, it’s just simplistic. It’s not trying to impress anyone by being fancy, it’s just trying to be entertaining and real, and I find a lot of comfort in that.
