Sunday Post #272

My favorite thing of the last week or so might be the Riverdale parents episode. Did you see it?   

The bar is now high. :):): In other news, SciFi Month is rolling on, and along with it the readalong for The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet. The first twitter chat was this past weekend and the next one is this Sunday. I reviewed The Similars this week and next week will be The Cheerleaders.    

Movies That Suck will be back with... The Meg! Yes! More shark goodness. Look for that soonish.

  1. Strange New World caught my eye. Certainly looks different.

  2. Ohh Meg! I want to see it too, lol

  3. I'll probably get Meg as soon as the dvd is released. I can never resist sharks!

  4. Fun that you're doing a sci-fi readathon and love the sci-fi themed picture scapes. I don't think Meg would be my thing, but I do plan to watch the latest Fantastical Creatures.

  5. I'm looking forward to Meg, I've heard the book is really good๐Ÿ˜

    1. Did you really? Did u like it? I wanted to see it in the theater too. As I watched it I DID think it would be a trip on the big screen...

  7. I'm still loving the cover to The Similars. ๐Ÿ“—✨

    Thanks for the Tangerine Dream song! ๐ŸŽผ

    I like the art based on the rocket book cover. ๐Ÿš€

    Have a wonderful new week. ๐ŸŒž

  8. Never got around to seeing the Meg. Barb at BookerTsFarm watched this week and liked it but said it was nothing like the book. I didn't even know there was a book. Have a great week.

    1. I haven't read the book but I'm not surprised it's different. TBH I didn't think it was that good, although... it has moments.

  9. Ooh I love that Two Towers image. I'm looking forward to your post about The Meg and your review for The Cheerleaders! I've heard mixed things (about both!).

    1. I love that Two Towers image too! And my Cheerleaders review will be up this week- I really liked it! The Meg was... yeah.

  10. I LOVED the parents ep of Riverdale. It was a genius way to tell us that part of the story, and as always, the episode ended in crazy. I love that I can rely on Riverdale to do that every week.

    1. You're right, Riverdale gives us a weekly dose of bonkers. I loved the episode too and would legitimately watch more of the parents' antics!

      Delete
  11. Damn, your pictures this week are on point! I don't even know if I can pick a favorite, I love them all!

    The problem with the Riverdale parents episode is that nothing will ever surpass it, in terms of awesomeness. Unless they do the 1800s G&G episode I am clamoring for...

    I am laughing at all the Wasteland videos, that is... a trip hahah. I still don't fully understand the Janky Car Parade, but if it makes them happy, have at it! Truly, even in the apocalypse, nay ESPECIALLY in the apocalypse, I'd want a sturdier, higher quality vehicle? Assuming there is endless fuel supply like in Fear. Also, I plan on dressing WAY more comfortably in the apocalypse. Metal jewelry in a desert like that? Recipe for disaster.

    1. Thank you! And so true :)

      You are not down w/ Wasteland?? Actually I imagine Fury Road was a shot in the arm, er a shot of adrenaline mayhaps, in the whole Wasteland thing? Like it must have really inspired lots of cosplay. I hear ya on the parade though- I kept wondering what people (and police) would think seeing those vehicles going down the road... I have to say though, the plane- car IS kinda neat?

  12. Great images! I am curious about Riverdale...I think I tried to watch it, but didn't stick with it. Maybe I'll try again.

    Enjoy Sci-Fi Month, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  13. I need to start watching Riverdale. Oh, just looking at the advert for Meg scares the heck out of me! I watched Jaws when I was a kid/teenager (? can't remember when) but I'm still haunted by it and I'm still scared swimming in the ocean because of it! Lol! Can't wait to hear what you make of the movie. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You do! Just be prepared for lots of goofiness. And yeah Jaws was scary- and see I didn't think this was, it was more kinda corny?

  14. I absolutely loved The Meg! It was so much fun, definitely on par with Sharknado. XD

    1. Ha ha glad you loved it! I had fun with it, even if I do poke gentle fun at in my upcoming post. :)

  15. I love the art choices this week! The name for the style escapes me at the moment, but I have a fondness for poster designs that use bold colors and clean lines like that.

  18. I watched The Meg when it came out on theaters and also thought it was pretty meh... Jasom Statham is beautiful though! Also, I am behind on the Riverdale episodes, should catch up soon.

  21. OK Greg my daughter just explained to me what Riverdale was LOL Her comments are: first season very good but the third not! Do you agree? See that's when I realize that these Sunday post with me blog hopping to blogs with different tastes than mine are just fantastic because I discover new things :-) Sophie @bewareofthereader

    Replies
    1. You've never seen R'dale haha? And right- I have that too- I discover so much thru the Sunday Post! As for Riverdale, I think I agree with your daughter- the first season was the best. I am kinda liking the third season though- except for last week which was bizarre!

  22. I will have to check out your review for the similars because that book does sound pretty interesting! I just have not been able to get into any movies or shows lately, but Riverdale seems pretty popular, so maybe I will finally check that one out soon.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have to come back to check the Meg post I guess. I kinda liked it but it might have somehtign too do with watching 'sky scrapper' the same week, which was terrible and the worst I have seen in a long time. I am just watching Riverdale on Netflix.

  24. I love Twitter chats! It's really like chatting with friends - sometimes, the conversations are fast, and at other times a little slower :)
    I haven't even heard of the Meg, apart from the fact that Barb chatted about the movie in her Sunday post today :D
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  27. I really need to get on Netflix and finish the second season of Riverdale lol.

    I enjoyed MEG but it really has nothing to do with the book except for the characters names and a big ole shark! LOL Hope you have fun with it!

    Have a great week and happy reading!

  28. I might take off work the week after Christmas and I plan to do nothing but binge watch and maybe hang with my kids ;)

    I look forward to your MEG post. Shark movies are always fun to watch.

    Hope this week is awesome for you Greg! Happy Reading! :)

  30. This reminds me I really need to read more Sci-Fi.. I can't stop reading Contemporary Romance at the moment though. LOL!.
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  31. Great art, as usual! I thought my science fiction reading was not that bad lately until I noticed I haven't read a single book listed in that Goodreads awards section :p

    I still need to start watching the second season of Riverdale.

    Have a wonderful week!

  37. I’m thinking about watching The Meg this week. I’m not sure if I’ll have time, though, with all of the Thanksgiving stuff. It might have to wait. I hope you have a good week!

  39. Surfacing is my favorite image this week. I really need to start Riverdale -- but there are so many TV choices now. I'm reading a SciFi now, so I guess I kinda participated in SciFi month?!

  41. those pixels creations are cool. In scifi, I really enjoyed Armada in print, so now I'm listening to it, only because it's by the awesome Wil Wheaton.

  42. Oh the Meg looks like the very definition of Movies That Suck though it looks like it could be fun! Love when a favorite show really outdoes itself with an episode. I haven't watched Riverdale but it's always my favorite thing when that happens. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Riverdale is on my want to watch list! Love your images. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  44. I love the idea of SciFi month and hope to participate some year. I'm listening to SciFi - the Deathstalker series by Simon R. Green. I don't watch much in the way of tv or movies right now; I just read. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and fit in some reading! Anne - Books of My Heart

  47. I always love all of the art you post. I am going to have to break down and watch Riverdale at some point. Have a great week!

  48. We are two episodes behind on Riverdale! My husband keeps having to work late and it is throwing off our television watching. Lol. I am tempted to watch without him during my son's naptime but... I refrain. :( We should at least get to the parent's episode tonight - if not, he is off on a long weekend. Now I am really looking forward to watching it!

  49. I think Strange New World is a bit better than the first so you might like it better. Happy Sunday and sorry I am late in responding!
