June 2nd – A Magical Duel… Choose some of your favorite fictional characters to magically duel one another. Who would win?! example – Harry Potter vs. Voldemort
Eleven from Stranger Things vs. Lara from Logan
While its not magical, part of me really wants to see these two characters fight it out. While Logan does have claws, Eleven can kill people with her mind
Carrie from Carrie vs. Matilda from Matilda
Both have powers of telekinesis, that were both brought up by parental neglect. But Carrie literally killed everyone at her prom
Caelena from Throne of Glass vs. Inej from Six or Crows
Both are highly skilled, while Caelena is a highly skilled assassin, Inej can sneak around anything, and when Inej makes a hit you will never see it coming.
Those are some of the characters I would love to see duel each other. Which characters do you want to see in a duel? Let me know in the comments below,
Here is another TV show review, and this is one of the most talked shows of the summer. Stranger Things.
If I were to describe the show I would describe it E.T. meets X-Files with a little bit of Super 8.
The main story-line of the show is the disappearance of a young boy named Will Byers, and how his mother (Winona Ryder) and his friends try to find him and figure out how and why he disappeared. As his friends are looking for him they come across a young girl (Millie Bobby Brown) who has strange powers and who may have a clue of what happened to Will.
This show is a basically an ode to 80s sci fi movies, and what I loved about the show is the acting of the boys. It was nice to kids act like normal kids, they rode bikes, played games and stayed out till the street lights came on. It really did feel like a throwback series.
Another stand out is Winona Ryder’s performance as Joyce Byers. She did a good job at playing a mother whose son has disappeared. Also David Harbour who plays the local sheriff on the case, also does a really good job.
If you are a fan of sci fi and 80s movies, this is a show I highly recommend. The only reason I am very vague in this review is because I don’t want to give anyway too many spoilers because the show is very good, and it should be watched.
I really hope season 2 dives deeper in the shows mythology, because I believe we are seeing a new version of the X-Files.
Season MVP: Winona Ryder and Millie Bobby Brown
