For as long as I can remember, the Star Wars trilogy (the original three) have been some of my favourite movies.  Although never strictly the nerdish type, I can remember spending weekends just watching all three, since in my world, trilogy watching means watching all three movies.

Then the trilogy of prequels came out.  Now, I’m not a die-hard über fan who can speak Chewbacca or whatever, but even I, at the young age of about 15, was incredibly disappointed with these movies. I can’t say if it was the bad acting, the shitty script-writing, or the stupid characters, but I hated it.  Hated. As in, I saw them once and refused to ever watch them again.

And now we’re a little less than two months away from the start of a third trilogy, and I’m beyond excited. I was skeptical at first, and I still am a little, but the closer the date gets, the more excited I get!!

Gilmore Girls is coming to Netflix!

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard something this week about the possibility of new Gilmore Girls episodes.  My Facebook feed erupted today with everyone and everything talking about it.

So of course, I had to look into it. And what I found sounds promising for us fans!

According to TV Line and  The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has reportedly closed a deal with Warner Bros. for a limited run revival of Gilmore Girls, which would be penned by creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Dan Palladino. Unlike previous GG seasons, which had the full 22 episodes or so, and unlike other Netflix exclusives that have between 10-12 episodes,  this limited run would only be four 90-minute long episodes, or “mini movies.” While most series seem to come back to brand-new seasons, this would essentially serve as the goodbye it deserved — and a closure to all those wondering what happened to the characters.

Hello, there!!  Yes, you!!

I know, I know, it’s been so long since we’ve seen each other…but hopefully that’s all about to change!!  Yes, you heard it right, I plan to update this blog much more often.  Let’s be totally honest, it probably won’t be as often as I’d like, but it’ll definitely be much more of then than I’m currently doing it!!

So what to talk about??  So much has happened!! What’s new in the world of pop culture that I love and want to discuss??

It’s a zombie world…

The zombie apocalypse is probably one of the most terrifying, although far-fetched and hopefully impossible, things that could ever happen.  No matter which writer’s or director’s version of zombies you think of, they’re pretty terrifying.  They don’t sleep, they don’t need rest, they can’t be reasoned with.  They’re out for your blood (or brains, whatever), and nothing will stop them.  Total war, as they say.

Of course, most movies use the slow-moving, single-minded, follow-the-food zombie, which is scary, but can thankfully be outrun if you meet just one or two.  Then there’s the fast zombies that can run and climb and swarm and will fuck shit up.  They’re even more terrifying.  And, if that isn’t scary enough, in zombie master’s George A. Romero‘s Land of the Dead, the fourth movie of his Living Dead series, the zombies are actually beginning to think and plan their attacks.

Yes, they scare me. Now, I don’t actually believe that the zombie apocalypse will happen, but that doesn’t make it any less frightening for me.  Like most people, I have always been fascinated by the idea of zombies.  Besides Romero’s work, shows like The Walking Dead and movies like Warm Bodies and 28 Days Later have just fed that fascination.

So this week I decided to go all out and scare myself and watch Brad Pitt‘s World War Z, which I then followed by reading the novel of the same name by Max Brooks.  Not only would I get my fill of zombie shenanigans, but I’d see what the big hype was about on both the movie and the book.

Oh, the obsession…

So to continue on my Supernatural obsession (yes, it’s totally turned into an obsession), I found this video that I wanted to share with you all.  It’s done incredibly well.  It’s all scenes from the 5th season, which, in my opinion, is the best season.  It was an incredibly crazy emotional roller coaster – there were so many hilarious ups and heartbreaking downs, I actually felt my heart tear a little with every new episode.  I honestly don’t think I’ve ever laughed and cried so much, and felt happiness and sadness to such extremes, from any other TV show I’ve watched.  Ever.  And it had the best ending to a season I’ve ever seen.  If they’d ended the show there, I honestly would have felt it was a good place to end, even if it was technically a cliffhanger.  In case you’re interested, watch this one and then this one.  There’s about ten seconds missing between those scenes, but all you miss is Castiel healing Dean.  And honestly, the Chuck part of the ending just added to the awesomeness, I think.

Anyways, this is almost like a trailer for the season, and hopefully you love it as much as I did.  Or, if you don’t watch the show, it’ll get you interested.

Of course, it helps that the song is “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons.  Awesome song!!

And yes, my obsessions has gotten pretty bad.  I think I’m on my fourth viewing of the series (as in, start to finish), and I just can’t seem to stop!!  I’ve also started reading fan fiction and I’m always on the Supernatural Reddit.  I know there’s also a big Tumblr thing for it, but I dislike Tumblr and so haven’t ventured into that yet.

I’ll be writing fan fiction soon too, you’ll see.  Seriously, obsessed.  I’ve also found charms I totally want to buy.  I’ve discovered Etsy (which was a bad, bad thing) and I’ve got like 15 Supernatural-related things I want to buy.  Also, I now want to get an anti-possession tattoo.  Honestly, I’m gonna end up spending a lot of money.  And while the crazy obsessiveness may eventually fade, I know I’ll still love this show years and years down the line.

Anywyas, this video is pretty good too.  It’s got scenes from all the seasons except the current one.  The song used is “Demons,” also by Imagine Dragons.

I’m not gonna lie, that video makes me want to make everyone watch this show, because it reminds me of just how good it is.

I’ll probably write about Supernatural again, because, you know, obsessed.  So give it a watch so you know what I’m talking about, okay?  And if you already watch it, watch it again!!
