Sunday Post #314

   

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Book Date 
  

So this week I got back on track a little, doing some blogging and even some *gasp* reading! Yay me. And Movies That Suck returned! For a while there I wasn't really feeling any movies but I'm happy to report that inspiration (if you want to call it that) struck and I now have a short list of candidates for future posts. Isn't that exciting? Oh, and I just added Sucker Punch to the list. Has anyone seen that?    

In other news I don't know if anyone noticed this last week but there's a really cool short Benjen Stark story below. I thought this was really well done. 
\

Otherwise I'll be reviewing Someone We Know on Thursday (finally), and oh I almost forgot. I saw this cool looking podcast this week- looks like the first episode is out. Does this sound awesome or what?

  1. I don't think I have seen Sucker Punch. I look forward to your recap of the film. And I look forward to your review of Someone We Know. I am glad you have been getting more reading in. I meant to this week, but somehow got distracted by a silly game on my phone. I really need to delete it.

    Oh my gosh, those covers! LOL I needed a good laugh tonight. Thank you.

    Have a great weekend and week, Greg! Happy reading.

  4. Ha - these covers are really funny. Curious to get your take on Willder Girls. I can’t read virus books (too creepy) and the reviews I read have been mixed...

    1. I have to read Wilder Girls yet but I'm hoping this week? And those covers killed me!

  5. I got very little reading done from being sick in bed to the hurricane that skated our coast. Luckily no damage, just no tv or internet for 2 days. We have Sucker Punch and liked it. Can't wait to see what you think. Have a great weekend!

    1. Yikes glad you didn't have serious damage. And that's good to know about Sucker Punch- I really don't know what to expect!

  6. I checked out the teaser for Derelict. Sounds like it might be good!

    Laughing so hard at the Toddlers are A-holes.

    Sucker Punch...is it like that skit they used to do on SNL?

    1. I'm going to jump on Derelict hopefully soon- it seems promising.

      I laughed too. :) And no Sucker Punch is a movie that seems, um, kinda sketchy lol- I'm gonna give it a try!

  7. Oh gosh... those covers were the best. I kind of liked the I Wrecked Your Bathroom one. So funny. I remember watching Soylent Green when I was a teenager... I can still hear that last line.... Soylent Green is made of PEOPLE!!! Yikes!

    1. I couldn't stop laughing. :)

  8. LOLOL those covers! Although hilarious, I probably wouldn't buy those for the kiddos in my life (maybe just for some laughs for myself!).

    1. Right? I may have been laughing nonstop. And no probably not kid material! lol

  10. Yaay for the movies coming back! I definitely go through periods when I watch a film a day and then weeks when I am in no mood for films.

    All those retro covers! Amazing!

    Have a fun reading week!

    1. Yup. Same. Luckily I'm getting my movie mojo back. :)

      You have a great week!

  11. I think I may have scared someone when I cackled from those book covers. So. Funny. I obviously have not seen enough films, because I didn't know this week's or the one you mentioned above.

    1. I may have been giggling uncontrollably at some of those covers, but I admit nothing. And to be fair, these are movies that are perhaps a little obscure, or um, occasionally not very good, so don't feel too bad!

      Delete
  12. Good job on getting some reading done last week! I Haven't gotten any done in awhile. I ended up binge watching The 100 after you mentioned it in a few of your Sunday Posts and really enjoyed it. Do you have any other Netflix recommendations? Have a great week!

    1. Thanks. And ooh glad you liked the 100. It's one of my favorite shows so it's always great to hear when someone else enjoys it. :) Let's see- other recs. Well, I liked Black Spot a LOT- it's very atmospheric, a French series. I also am fond of The Society and Continuum. Oh, and Dark Matter. :)

  13. Yes I admit. The Derelict pod cast does sound awesome.

  22. The 'ladybird' covers made me laugh!
    I've been struggling with balancing my time and with blogging motivation the past couple of weeks. Fingers crossed it passes soon! I'm glad to hear you're getting back at it. :)

  23. Sucker Punch? of course I have seen it! With the kids and ok I get why you'd choose that one but even if it was quite lame it had an atmosphere ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hooray for more movies that suck posts! And oh my gosh, those covers! LOL Those are so priceless!! :)

    The mermaid art you shared is beautiful.
    Enjoy your week!

  46. Those covers are just... wow. Like I laughed at every single one, it's true, but then I high key felt like a terrible person 😂 Now go read Wilder Girls.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've been trying to get back on track with my blogging all year (maybe all my blogging life lol) glad you are catching up! I have to check out that GoT video!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yay for reading again! I finally read a book this week so I understand the feeling. I think I've heard of sucker punch but I haven't see it. I love those covers especially the toddlers are assholes because its true but I also feel like a terrible person admitting that.

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

  50. I tried to watch Sucker Punch years ago but couldn't get through it. It's pretty dumb. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Blogging and reading?! Check you out with you getting all motivated. I usually find you manage one or the other but never usually both. And you're adding Sucker Punch to the movies that suck list? Love it. I mean, the film wasn't great, from what I remember, but I absolutely adored the soundtrack so there's that.
