Jacquel Rassenworth does Comic Con…again!

Hello, and welcome to the wonderful world that is Comic-Con. I (as in your #1 friendly meme master) will take you on a journey to explore what's coming up in the world of fandom.

And here are some of the things you'll love as this year rolls by:

  1. Stranger Things 2
  2. The actor who will play the doctor in "Doctor Who", but I'll get back to that later.
  3. Game of Thrones season 7, episodes 2 and 3.
  4. Star Trek Discovery.
  5. The superhero movies that I'm dying to see, such as Justice League, Infinity War, and Black Panther.

I was going to dress up for Comic-Con this year, but I ran out of time due to my other activities. So I had to buy a Disney Descendants t-shirt from Hot Topic. And I haven't watched the show…yet.

Yeah, that's really embarrassing.

Anyway, thanks for reading this blog post and I'll see you on the internet.

Jacquel Rassenworth on Adam West

Well, I’m beginning to hate 2017.

Today, Maddy sent me a Facebook post about the death of Adam West. As we all know, Adam was two things to my generation:

He was Batman when Batman used to be funny instead of the Dark Knight that we have now, and in his later years, became the mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island on a silly adult cartoon called “Family Guy”.

Yeah, death really sucks when it takes away people you love.

Jacquel Rassenworth does the Super Bowl

Once again, my family’s torn between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. I’m sure that Tom Brady (perhaps a cousin of the Brady Bunch?) will lead the Patriots to victory even though my dad and Matt think the Falcons and their leader might have a shot at victory, so we’ll have to wait and see who wins.

Also, Lady Gaga had better ger her act togther, as I’m still not happy with her performance last year. Her halftime show had better be good or I’m not listening to her music anymore.

Jacquel Rassenworth on Mary Tyler Moore 

Well, it was too good to be true.

This morning, I found out that Mary Tyler Moore had died. It’s a sad day for everyone, especially after I wrote a blog post about her late second husband, Grant Tinker.  

In case you forgot, Mary was the star of the hit TV show “The Mary Tyler Moore” show. Also, she and Grant founded the MTM production Company, in which the logo was a tiny meowing baby cat. And you already know which shows she was responsible for.

Anyway, if you’re feeling sad, just post your comments below. 

Jacquel Rassenworth on Star Trek Day 

Well, today is the 50th anniversary of the first episode of Star Trek, and as such, I see that most of my friends are posting their tributes to the TV show by the way of pictures. But where are the memes??? 

Anyway, as a kid who grew up watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, I learned that science fiction was more than simply intergalactic battles, that adventures can be had in space. Plus, I found myself dismissing Star Wars and its sequels because they didn’t have what it took to impress me. 

Of course, when I watched the first Star Trek reboot in 2009, I was blown away by the way the story presented itself. And the cast selected to play the characters was impressive. (Plus, it was great to see Leonard Nimoy as Spock again.) 

When the sequel came out, I let you know how excited I was about the movie on this blog. (And I was kind of upset when I found out about Benedict Cumberbatch’s role in that movie.) If you want to find that post, I’ll give you the links. 

Of course, I have my opinion on the latest Star Trek movie, but the blog ate that post. So I’ll just have to repost it soon. 

Other than that, I say let’s have another 50 years of Star Trek, as we need to go on a journey to a place where no one has gone before. 

Jacquel Rassenworth on the Rio Olympics 2016

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!! (I waited four years for this.)

As of right now, I’m over my grandpa’s house getting ready to watch the games (and still pissed that I can’t go because of stupid Zika ruining everything for the people of Brazil. Curse you, Zika!) and having high hopes that the Olympics would help bring about world peace. Some of us, however, have been through a lot due to everything that happened this year and because of that, we need to set our differences aside and celebrate what brings us together.

And the only way to do that is to introduce sports to the world in the form of the Olympics.

And what I’m wanting to see is if Michael Phelps still has got it. (I want to see him win a few more gold medals and show that Ryan Lochte that he means business. That, and if Usain Bolt can defend his “fastest man in the world” title. (Who knows?)

Anyway, I’ll be here for two weeks to show you what I think about the Olympics, so stay tuned!

Jacquel Rassenworth on Comic Con 2016

Hello, everyone! While the rest of the world is going nuts, I’m going to Comic Con! And here’s what I have to say about what we’re getting next:

  1. Wonder Woman movie (about damned time, too!)
  2. Justice League movie (see #1)
  3. Iron Fist
  4. Game of Thrones, Season 7
  5. Star Trek: Discovery
  6. Suicide Squad
  7. Once Upon a Time (with Aladdin, Jafar, and Jasmine)
  8. Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2
  9. Black Panther movie
  10. Spiderman: Homecoming (in which Peter STILL can’t get a date, despite him hanging out with the Avengers)

I’m super excited about this coming season, especially about Game of Thrones! And because you’ve been so paitent, here’s my costume:

I’ll be back with another blog post, so don’t go anywhere! (and if you do, don’t go too far!)

Jacquel Rassenworth on R+L=J

Yes, yes, and 1,000 times heck yeah!

R+L=J is fricking confirmed!!!

All hail Jon STARK (not Snow), the King in the North!

At the same time, screw you, Cersei Lannister! I don’t care why you did it, but there’s no excuse for killing all those people! The Tyrells, Sand Snakes, and Danaerys Targaryen are coming for you!

If not, then Jaime is going to choke the life out of you. (After all, it’s your fault that Tommen is dead.) You are the biggest villain on Game of Thrones, and I hope that you get what you deserve one day.

Plus, I’m super glad that we saw Ned and Lyanna before she died. Also, as she dies, Lyanna tells Ned the truth about her marriage to Rhaegar and begs Ned to protect her son, who turned out to be JON.

Now you know. All hail Jon, the King in the North.

I’ll be back with more.

Jacquel Rassenworth on Pretty Little Liars…Again!

Pretty Little Liars (season 1)

Once again, I got suckered into watching “Pretty Little Liars” right when I swore I would never watch that show again. Why don’t I listen to myself when I say I’m not going to do something like that? Good golly God!

Anyway, we now get to see Spencer, Hanna, Emily, and Aria as adults; it has been five years since A came out and attacked these four girls for almost no reason. And in typical TV fashion, there is a plot twist that you won’t believe, as once again, somebody is found dead.

Here’s some news flash, people: this is not a happy feel-good story. This is “Pretty Little Liars”. In any case, nothing really has changed except for the names, the faces, and the fashion trends. The girls may have grown up, but this story will never end.

I will now review each episode of the new season as it comes out.

Jacquel Rassenworth on the Big Finale

Well, consider yourself mind blown.

Last night, I was treated to a bombshell that was so huge that it blew up the Pretty Little Liars universe. (I highly recommend that you are sitting in your seat for this because if you’re not, you’ll lose your footing.)

Ready?

Cece Drake is “A”.

Is your mind blown yet?

Here’s why this reveal will shock you:

It all began with Ali being born and her brother Charles being obsessed with her, as if she was a doll. (Dollhouse reference, anyone?) That obsession led to Charles attempting to drown Ali in a tub. That incident led the Dilaurentis family to sending Charles away to a mental hospital. (Because Charles was crazy.)

Still not convinced? I have more.

Charles was once friends with a girl named Bethany Hamilton (who was just as crazy as he was), until a murder tore apart their friendship. Combine that with the fact that Charles was transgendered and his mother covering up the bad things that he did and you have a recipe for one messed-up character.

And as for the rest of the story, Mona tormented the girls until she met Cece (aka Charles) and revealed everything. When we get to the meat of the story (when Cece meets the girls), we find out that Cece tortured the girls because she felt that they had betrayed Ali.

Now you know.

Next up, well, the future is limitless because we can create a kinds of scenarios featuring the girls as adults.

My reaction to the finale: Mind. Blown.

See you next time.
