  1. Hang in there. Going through a bit of a rough patch myself right now. I won't say I feel you because obviously I don't, realistically speaking, but hey. You get the sentiment (hopefully).

    Episode 3.3, "His Last Vow"

    It's not a hiatus for me at all, I consider the series finished and am perfectly happy with that. I don't usually let myself get emotionally invested in unfinished works. That Sherlock finally has an ending that, for me at least, is pretty satisfactory, is doing wonders for my peace of mind!

    What's your age?

    I am almost 35.
  4. The way things are going right now, it seems to me like they'll have other problems... If they ever exist at all.
  5. Yeah, I remember those conversations... And now that I have a kid, they're still happening because apparently it's unacceptable to only produce one offspring. When I say that I think I am a bit old now to get pregnant again, I get "but XYZ had a baby at 40!" When I point out that the birth was a complicated nightmare - oh, just have a planned cesarean the next time. But I don't really want any more kids - you're a bad parent, only children develop terrible personalities. Um... I am an only child -" that explains everything" stare.

    Indeed! I would love to see live action Hercules and Tarzan though. The songs were great but the animation downright ungly imho. I have a bit of a thing for remakes and adaptations because I find it interesting to see what is changed and why. But I wouldn't watch a remake of anything I really loved either. Totally understand why you don't enjoy the new Disneys.

    Interesting! Actually, unpopular opinion incoming, I really appreciate lots of the remakes. Maybe because I was never a real Disney fan. I like the old films as musicals but the artwork, especially the character design, was never my thing. I find the "realistic" images more visually pleasing. And some changes to the plots were improvements imho. My favorite so far is Cinderella 2015. I LOVE that film. If her dress hadn't looked so cheap and plastic-y, it would have been almost a 10 out of 10 for me. I saw Moana the other day. Liked it well enough but just can't warm up to those flat Barbie doll faces with the huge eyes that they are doing now.

    I think I like both Fantastic Beasts movies the same. My husband says that the first one is definitely better, though, and my impression is that his taste is more similar to yours than mine (his favorite LOTR character is Bilbo, too, for example and he likes John better than Sherlock).

    The Crimes of Grindelwald 7/10 There were some things that bothered me but overall, very enjoyable, imo. I love Newt. I love young(er) Dumbledore. I think Grindelwald is a much more interesting and believable villain than Voldemort. My heart bleeds for Queenie and Jacob though. And somehow, I can't warm up to Tina.

    Game of Thrones

    I feel you. The cruelty on GoT got too much for me really fast. And Ramsay... Ugh. Blech. When I learned about the Boltons in general, I thought, this is not for me...

    Both my cousins in the US had parties thrown for them by their parents recently when they graduated high school and college, respectively. They were day time affairs with mostly relatives as guests. Definitely involving presents, I sent mine because I couldn't travel. Dunno if they did something with peers in the evenings too. Over here in Germany, there's usually a prom type event and an after party for the high school graduates but families throwing parties for the individual (ex-) students isn't so common afaik. I hate parties and don't even really celebrate my birthdays so I certainly didn't want one. When I finished university, my then boyfriend (now husband) and I went out to dinner and that was it. There was a ceremony half a year later (why?) on campus that I couldn't attend because I was already working.

    What is your favourite scene involving Moriarty in series 2?

    Moriarty getting to the crown jewels. I love that entire sequence, the music, the way it is filmed, the humor, everything.

    Thanks for the review, now I am no longer sad I will not be able to see the new Aladdin at the theater. Just watched Ready Player One. 7/10, I would say. I would have taken so very, very little to make it a 9...
  15. This sums up my problem with English (and German) classes in school. I love reading and writing but I hated the kind of reading and writing you are forced to do there.
