A Knight's Tale


Loosely inspired by the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, A Knight's Tale is an exceptionally fun and riotous film about a young man who dared to defy social convention and do the impossible. Create an honorable knight from a penniless squire. A veritable array of comedy, drama, action and romance, I really didn't know what to expect when I first watched A Knight's Tale, but as soon as Queen's "We Will Rock You" started playing...I realized that this story was going to be anything but historically accurate.

 I just finished episode 4 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and while it tended to drag in some areas, it was exceptional in others. Especially with Bucky

The Narrative of a Christian Feminist

Can a woman be both a Christian and a feminist? Yes, I believe she can. Not rabid 3rd wave feminism, but rather the idea that men and women can be seen and treated as equals in the eyes of God, while still fulfilling the respective roles that God created for them.

After I wrote The Narrative of an Early Bloomer last year, I noticed that several of the comments talked about the Church and the double standards it has set between boys and girls, and men and women. Some of them really let their feelings and opinions out there in my comments section and I'm glad they did. Early Bloomer was about myself, however, this post will take what I read in the comments and address the Church and the damage it has done to generations of women.

Happy Easter!

LOTR Read-Along: The Two Towers: The Palantir

Book Three of The Lord of the Rings has probably been one of the most enjoyable books I've read so far. It's quick and rapid fire, with absolutely no time to rest at all. From frequent battles, to meeting new characters in every chapter, there has not been a dull moment at any point in the story. So it's only fitting, that Book Three would end on quite an intense cliffhanger. All thanks to Pippin.
