Spider-Man: Far From Home Review + SDCC 2019 Marvel Coverage ft. Morgan McNair and Leen Bernardo 

On this week’s episode of Marvelous Geeks, I sit down with the darlings Morgan McNair and Leen Bernardo to discuss (more so squeal repeatedly) over what an absolute treasure Spider-Man: Far From Home was, the superlative performances, and the utter delight of the kids + their innocence. Join us in also celebrating the fact that Avengers: Endgame is now the number one grossing film worldwide! Ah! But on a serious note, Peter Parker’s superhero alias should be angel-man. There’s no child as pure and I could not love him more even if I tried. (I’ve said this before so let’s be real, it’s possible. I probably, most definitely could.) The conversations with Happy have a piece of my heart forever — we’ve come so far and it’s so precious to have witnessed this growth.  The films lighthearted humor is a breath of fresh air amidst the darkness in fiction we’ve been exposed to lately. Peter and MJ are the sweetest duo and must be protected at all costs. They might just be my new favorite MCU couple since my original babies are retired somewhere in the 1940s. And one last thing, I still have no words for how good Tom Holland is at ming me full blown sob with the benevolent vulnerability he brings to this character. There’s so much heart in every word he breathes to life, he’s without question, the best Spider-Man we’ve ever and will ever have, and I’m a bit tired of this universe consistently making this kid cry. Let him live, Marvel! That’s the journey we love most for him. The moments of innocence and pure joy reflected in the time spent with his loved ones.

Avengers: Endgame Review ft. Morgan McNair

Part I and Part II 

avengersendgame-blogroll-2-1555518573008_1280w

11 years and 22 movies have amounted to one of the most beautiful cinematic experiences of our time – a journey, I could not be more grateful to have experienced alongside so many marvelous geeks. This isn’t the first or last time the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be featured, but there’s something about these initial reactions that are so unbelievably special to us. So much of what we’ve watched through the years has built up to this moment in exquisite fashion and we cannot believe the utmost satisfaction we’ve felt at the end of Avengers: Endgame. We’ve got a ton lined up for the end of phase three and what might just be our favorite film in the universe so far, but for now, this two part episode review will do. Our first initial thoughts and reactions. The attempts to wrap our heads around the masterpiece that we’ve been fortunate enough to witness live. It’s been a blessing in so many ways and we’re in complete awe. Avengers: Endgame wasn’t perfect, but it’s as close as a film in its genre could come. We laughed, we cried (a lot), and most importantly, we celebrated.

Friendships and the Importance of Communication

Friendships and the Importance of Communication

On this week’s episode of Marvelous Geeks, I throw it back to October 17 when I got to sit down with two of my incredible friends in Philadelphia, Melody and Leen to discuss a topic that’s very near to our hearts. We talk about how we all met and what it’s like to carry on a long distance friendship all while giving our input on what makes a healthy friendship. The good, the bad, the ugly? We get into it. The podcast gets a little bit emotional as we share some of the struggles we’ve gone through in our lives (i.e. depression, anxiety, grief) and the kind of help/space that’s appreciated.

Autumn at Trader Joe’s

Autumn at Trader Joe’s

It sounds like a Hallmark film doesn’t it? Good, because that’s what I was going with when I chose this title. The real time of new beginnings and cozy feelings is finally upon us again and all is right in the world now. And hello yes, I’m that one person in your life that perhaps loves pumpkin everything a little too much, but when did pumpkins ever hurt anybody? Ugh. A mood. On this week’s episode of Marvelous Geeks, I review all my favorite fall/pumpkin goodies from the greatest place on earth, Trader Joe’s, from cheeses to crackers, the most heavenly salsa, and all the cookies, too.
