The horror prequel is not, however, enjoying good word-of-mouth.

{{ So! I'm back, it was amazing, I'm still super hyper like eek! In case you don't know, Shaun Cassidy played Joe Hardy, Pamela Sue Martin played Nancy Drew, and Parker Stevenson played Frank Hardy in the original ND/HB Mysteries TV series back in the late 70s. Being a huge ND fan from a young age, my parents bought me the series to watch and Pamela as Nancy was really just my hero. I wanted to be her, I just thought she was THE best. So really, out of everyone I've met, Pamela is my first childhood hero.

Now story-time. My mum and I went first to meet Parker. He was soooo nice and extremely dreamy, even at his age now. Still has his lovely blue eyes, his voice that could literally melt butter, and his lovely smile. He talked to us for quite a bit and he really liked my picture. He was really happy that I even knew who he was and that I was a longtime fan as well. He kept looking at Pam who was next to him and was like, "Look, Pamela is wearing this expression right now, isn't that funny?" But when he talked to you, he looked you right in the eye and was really interested in everything you had to say; it was awesome. Super, super nice guy. If he goes again, I'm definitely getting a pic with him because their prices were wrong on their website and I didn't have enough money to get it this time dammit. After he signed his name, I asked if he could write "Frank Hardy" on it because I like those things on my autographs, they just make them more special, and he's like, "Oh sure!" Then he puts exclamation points next to it and was like, "There, how's that?" XDDD It was great. He shook my hand with both of his and said some nice things to us and then like the fangirl I am...I left my binder at his table and almost left my book drawings at a convention :) Luckily it was still there, no need to jump off the hotel roof XDDD

Pamela was just golden. She was everything I hoped she'd be and more. I'm always a little nervous to meet my heroes because I don't want to be disappointed, but I've not run into that yet thankfully. She loved the picture and she was surprised to see my limited edition ND book with her on the cover, she'd never seen it before. And when she was signing this one, she asked whether or not I wanted it personalised and me and the assistant pointed to the name card I had put next to the picture and she rolled her eyes and laughed and was like, "Oh GOD seriously? Wow. How did I miss that?" XD And she really liked my name :3 Most celebs do which is nice XD Anyway, while my mum was talking to her assistant about an ND club, me and her just talked, she told me some stuff about her life and what she was doing, and what it was like to work on the movie The Poseidon Adventure if you haven't seen it, you're missing out, it's an amazing movie which was super cool. She was so easy to talk to, like she really enjoyed it. She just kept looking at me and smiling like she wanted to keep talking all day. It was just the best experience ever. I have another autograph of hers to show, so follow me over to the next one for the rest of the story! Believe me, you don't want to miss it! }}

{{ This one is great and I mean just absolutely adorable. When my mum was talking to her assistant, the guy who takes the money for the autographs, she saw my name card still sitting there. So she stealthy took the name card while we were talking as well and signed it! The only person who's ever done that for me was Mary Costa, the voice of Sleeping Beauty when she signed the cardboard I sent with the fanmail! I mean her expression was these emotes: >.> <.< signs card. Slides over. ;) Like seriously. How much more amazing could that have gone? The little name card I use for celebs to make their life easier when they sign my name, and she signs it to me with a little heart. I just wanted to cry when I saw what she did. And she kept taking my hand in both of her and shaking it and holding it and geez. Like wow. I still can't believe it. And then when I came back because I wanted a pic with her after all that, her assistant's like, "Hey! Look." And Pam's like, "Hey! Insert my name here! How are ya? Whatcha need?" So I said I wanted a pic and she's like, "Oh gosh yes. Come here!" And she grabbed my by the shoulder and gave me a strong side hug and was just smiling ear to ear. Of the other people who were ahead of me, she just lit up when I came along. I am now the happiest girl on the planet :D This day, meeting her and Parker, just couldn't have gone better. Hopefully I can meet her again in the future <3 }}

Wonder Woman ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ of 5
#MovieReview

+DC Entertainment​​​ needed a hit and Wonder Woman was it

Overall, I truly enjoyed this film. The story was almost perfect, performances across the board from all actors were spot on. Gal Gadot absolutely owned her role as Wonder Woman and I can't wait to see her in the upcoming Justice League film. I like how this film places you properly in the timeline of the all of the DC films.

This movie is a must see and it deserves all it's praise as the most awaited film for the summer. Head to the theater now to see it or pre-order it below on +YouTube​​​ or +Google Play​​​.

Another side note: Shout-out to everyone who saw the Google Pixel C tablet in the movie 😁

On this day:
At 18th May of 1987, the final episode of "Fame" aired. "Fame" is an American television series originally produced between 1982 and 1987. The show is based on the 1980 motion picture of the same name. Using a mixture of drama and music, it followed the lives of the students and faculty at the fictional New York City High School for the Performing Arts. Although fictional, it was based heavily on the actual Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Most interior scenes were filmed in Hollywood, California. The popularity of the series, particularly in the UK, led to several hit records and live concert tours by the cast. Despite its success, very few of the actors maintained high-profile careers after the series was cancelled.

When a film is made into a TV show, it can be a painful transition. Anyone who has seen "Ferris Bueller" can attest to that. "Fame," on the other hand, almost works better as a weekly series than a feature film, as it allows the viewer to spend more time with the characters, and allows the characters more time for natural growth. That's a key when dealing with characters in high school, four years that result in a huge swing in growth and development.

"Fame" follows a group of friends attending New York's School for the Arts, a public high-school for students talented in the performing arts. The movie can be forgotten when approaching this series, though if you had a favorite character, most made the move to the small screen, even if they aren't played by the same actor.

Among those in both are the stand-out characters of Leroy (Gene Anthony Ray) and Bruno (Lee Curreri), everyone's favorite teacher Mr. Shorofsky, and the show's choreographer Debbie Allen. Maintaining some consistency was a nice touch, but not being slaves to the original was important as well.

The plots here tend to follow closely to the world of performance arts, rather than attempting to mine the world of generic teen drama. Of course, there are some aspects of high-school life that are universal, so the family strife and real world-struggle story ideas raise their heads often in the first season, accounting for 6 of the 16 episodes. Even when they do come into play, they are done well.

The rest of the series focuses on the stress of trying to be a "special" student, and the ways that being a performing arts student affects your life. Starting with new student Julie (Lori Singer) as the audiences' intro into the School for the Arts keeps the show accessible, while attempting to maintain a level of realism regarding the school. It's more than likely that most people watching the show never had a dance audition or performed on-stage, so Julie was a well-chosen "in."

The interaction between the students and teachers (and amongst the students themselves) provides opportunities for some comic relief in a show that often feels as tense as the students' lives. When the show does get the balance between the drama and laughs correct, the show really works well, drawing some big laughs. That the students are mostly New Yorkers provides a sense of attitude to the show that helps foster that aggressive sarcasm and biting wit among the characters.

Few shows in the history of TV have looked as unique as "Fame" did. Each episode is like a short film, put together with true style, from the editing to the camera angles to the shot selection. Even the opening credits, which are some of the longest ever, mark the show as something different.

It was likely the subject matter, including the large dance and music numbers, that inspired such distinct techniques, but either way, the look makes the episodes that much better and that much better than the majority of the television created in the 30 years since the series ended.

I'm trying to keep my hopes at Bay but this film looks like it's going to be the best DC film to date.
