Captain America: The First Avenger (Review)

Image
((((Please be advised there are spoilers))))
Movie Summary: Steve Rogers; a weak, sickly young man eager to enlist is repeatedly rejected from the war until a scientist recruits him and transforms him into Captain America. However, it comes at a price when he has to take down a war monger and a terrorist organization.   
Opening Scene:  Agents of some kind from Washington are brought in and are inspecting what looks to be an aircraft that was trapped in ice and within it they find Captain America's shield. I had goosebumps watching that scene. 
Only with a short few scenes into the movie we can clearly identify all the important qualities that makes up Steve Rogers; respect, honour, humility and has the determination to help out his country as much as he can even if he has to lie to get in the army. 
I'm usually not enamored by characters but Steve Rogers is something else altogether. He is smart, selfless and has such a kind heart. Not many soldiers would throw themselves on…

True Blood | Season 1 Episode 12: You'll Be The Death Of Me

Image
(((Please be advised there are spoilers)))
It is quite eerie seeing Drew aka Rene acting suspicious and seeing his demeanor change right before our eyes. What is stranger is a church is interested in a murderer and helping fund his defense. Granted Jason isn't the murderer but it is strange for a church to have a vested interest. But Rene is such a sneak. Cutting cables in Sookie's car to finally get her alone. Everything is finally falling into place when it comes to Rene. Arlene's kids find his video tapes and Sam connects Rene's scent to the killer's. At the end of the day it was Sookie who saved herself and killed Rene/Drew with a shovel. I love that we had both Sam and Bill on the ground unable to help but Sookie was the hero instead of the damsel in distress. 
It did feel a bit anti-climactic with how easily Rene got bested by Sookie. Granted for all his other victims he had the element of surprise. I think for him being the antagonist for an entire season, …

Capitola Watches (Review)

Image
For this review I am going to share with you a new company I am a influencer/ brand ambassador for; Capitola Watches! One of the main reasons why I decided to become an ambassador for Capitola watches is because they use recycled materials and contribute to a well known organization.

They use recycled stainless steel for every watch they make because this material contains valuable raw elements that are reused in the production process of their watches, reducing waste. For their leather collection, all the straps are made of synthetic recycled leather. They do this because leather is also responsible for all the environmental destruction caused by the meat industry as well as the pollution caused by its tanning. A percentage of the benefits coming from the leather collection is donated to WWF, a well-known organization that helps to protect wildlife and nature.

Who wouldn't want to be an ambassador for a company who is trying to help the environment and donating to a great organi…

True Blood | Season 1 Episode 11: To Love Is To Bury (Review)

(((Please be advised there are spoilers!))))
Bill is getting on my last damn nerve. His self-righteous and better than thou attitude towards his own kind is getting tiring. Imagine being a powerful creature but only weeping and reminiscing of the olden days. What a waste immortality is on our poor Mr. Compton. 
I do have to say I am not a squeamish but damn vampire remains are fucking disgusting. Let's be honest, you don't really know someone till you are cleaning up the mess of a dead body with them. Morbid sense of humour, eh? I really am happy that Jason is finally getting a grip with the whole Amy situation because he was going down a rabbit hole. It's crazy to me how Amy is able to rationalize everything. It's sad to lose Amy because it is leading Jason down a worse path than when she was alive. I understand he is devastated of losing her but for him to take responsibility for her death is sad. 
Terry Bellefleur is a mood and a half! "I can't listen to P…
