To Hear You Speak











I love words

And the only thing I love more than devouring them

By the handful

Is creating them.

Sometimes I throw them together haphazardly,

Sprinkle them wildly about myself;

Other times, I piece them together as carefully

As if I were assembling a living thing,

Each one a delicate cell with its own important purpose.


I love words,

So is it any wonder that I want to see

What you do with them?

I do not know much about you,

But I think

To hear you speak

Would tell me everything I need.


Star Wars The Last Jedi: Review/ Theories (Spoilers)


Star Wars The Last Jedi, is about the rebels, or what’s left of them, trying to get away from the Empire with limited fuel and with Leia in a coma. The second in command doesn’t seem to know what she’s doing and wants to transmit the fuel to the escape pods. Meanwhile, Rey is on a small planet to see if Luke will help train her and help the rebellion fight against the empire. While all that is happening, Fin is trying to find The “Master code breaker” who can help the Rebels get into the Imperial base because the First Order is tracking the Rebels through Light Speed. Leia wakes up and she sends the rebels to the same planet as the one from The Empire Strikes Back. Rey learns that Luke really did fail Kylo Ren because he almost killed Kylo when he was sleeping. He almost did this because of the Dark power he possessed. Kylo woke up, took/ killed other Jedi and went to work for Snoke. Fin finds out that the Master Code Breaker was an Imperial Spy and they get put down for execution. Rey is also in the Imperial base trying to convince Snoke that Kylo Ren can be saved and brought to the light side. They end up killing Snoke and just as we thought Kylo was going to be good, he asked Rey to join him in ruling the galactic empire.  They then fight for Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber and end up splitting it in half. This causes an explosion that kills the Imperials who are about to kill Fin and the rebel with him. They all end up meeting on a planet where its Kylo Ren’s newly owned First Order vs. The Rebellion. Luke then comes and distracts Kylo Ren while the rebels can escape. After Ren realizes that Luke is just a hologram, the rebels escape but Luke dies from transmitting the signal all the way across the galaxy. All that’s left of the rebellion escapes and the movie ends.

My Score: 8.7/10, because while it isn’t the best out there, it’s story set up the next movie and the visuals were fantastic.

Theory: Snoke is Palpatine!

This movie was very well done and I highly suggest watching it.

The Road: Book Review

the road

The Road is a post apocalyptic thriller written by Cormac McCarthy. This story follows a man and his young son trying to travel South. They are doing this because the Earth has basically been destroyed in some kind of nuclear war making the North covered in ash with extremely cold conditions. The water and land is covered in ash so with no animals and most of the water polluted, they have trouble finding food/ water. The man and the boy encounter cannibals who can’t find food but want to eat them. Meanwhile, the dad is suffering an extremely bad cough which could kill him before they get to the South. Can the boy and the man get to the South before the dad dies from the cough and before the cannibals get them? Read the Road to find out.

Setting: The setting is only known to be in The North because the family is traveling south.

Pros: This has a great story, 2 very likeable characters, a future that could actually happen, and cannibals/ villains that’ll creep you out.

Cons: One problem I did have was that the characters didn’t have names but it’s almost smart because names don’t matter in that future.

Score: 9.3/10

This was a fantastic story and I highly suggest reading it.



My throat has ached for the longest time

my eyes are teary and dull

this deep depression overtook me

and loneliness filled my soul

My face is blank and I cannot speak

for I have nothing to speak for

there is nowhere for me to walk

I can only encounter this closed door

I’m trapped inside this somber cell

sitting at the bottom of your weathered well

until you change forever I’ll dwell

boiling in misfortunes’ spell

My thoughts are clouded by gloom and grief

swarmed in hatred and disbelief

my heart is enveloped in the darkest wreath

and yet you still stand there with one half of my missing piece.

 -Marie Walters, 2017



Spider-Man: Homecoming


Spider-Man: Homecoming was a film released on July 7, 2017. It was directed by Jon Watts. The film follows Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland) as he gets a high tech suit from Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.), and despite what he’s told, Peter starts taking advantage of the suit and, under the name Spider-Man, fights The Vulture (played by Michael Keaton). Peter has to balance his life between his normal life and his Spider-Man life.

The casting is great. Tom Holland was born to be Spider-Man. Michael Keaton did a good job as Vulture. Jacob Batalon plays Peter’s best friend Ned, who is cool.  The movie itself is funny and has some epic and intense action in a lot of scenes.

The music was composed by Michael Giacchino, whose music is absolutely epic in all the movies he did, and this movie is no exception. When the opening credits are playing, you hear an orchestral arrangement of the Spider-Man cartoon theme song. That is just amazing, and the rest of the music is epic as well.

If you love action, watch this movie. I guarantee you will love it. I give this film a 10/10.

Dolores Claiborne Review


Stars — 3/5

Summary — Suspected of killing Vera Donovan, her wealthy employer, Dolores Claiborne tells police the story of her life, harkening back to her disintegrating marriage and the suspicious death of her violent husband, Joe St. George, thirty years earlier. Dolores also tells of Vera’s physical and mental decline and of her loyalty to an employer who has become emotionally demanding in recent years. (Goodreads)

Thought — It was okay. I didn’t like it too much, but there were parts I enjoyed. It didn’t really have the same thrill factor as the rest of Stephen King’s books which made the plot less appealing. I was expecting a supernatural horror involved, but turns out the character was just crazy. There really isn’t much to say about it. The book didn’t meet my expectations. All in all, it kind of sucked, but I have enjoyed several other Stephen King novels and highly recommend them.

Monument Valley 2


Monument Valley 2 is a surreal, beautifully interactive work of art, a moving story, and a wonderful experience. Don’t get this if you’re into hardcore puzzles or vast realms of content. Do get this if you’d like a low-stress game that lets you marvel at beautiful vistas of pixels or if you enjoyed the first game.

Monument Valley 2, from ustwo games, has been out for a few months, but I’ve been looking forward to it ever since I played (and reviewed) the first version. That game was interactive, mysterious, immersive, and magical.

I am happy to tell you that Monument Valley 2 is just as good. “Just as good,” though, has some modifiers — an obvious downside of the original Monument Valley was the lack of content. It’s about an hour or two to play through it the first time. Monument Valley 2 has about the same amount of content. Knowing this, I consciously rationed my play to spread the game out over four days. This second game’s gameplay has a distinct lack of challenge to it. The puzzles seem to be there for show. I only remember feeling challenged at three points in the entire game.

Now for the good stuff.

The characters are Ro, her unnamed child, and several ghosts. Ro and her child explore Monument Valley, working together and separately to solve puzzles and discover themselves.

The art is just as wonderful as ever. Beautiful new mechanics, an emphasis on plant life and water, and a consistent theme throughout levels even improve on the original. I don’t really have anything to say about the art that I haven’t said before — magical, minimalistic, surreal, etc., etc. I could not stop playing the game on the first few occasions I started it up — the old familiar “just one more level,” for slightly different reasons. The game was so beautiful I only wanted to see more.

The music is even better than the original game’s. In this game, sounds create an immersive effect that pulls you into the story. At the beginning of the game, text even states that “this game is best played with sound.”

The story is quite a lot more immersive. Simple motions, sounds, and memories included in the game imply a level of emotional depth and attachment that wasn’t so obvious in the first game. This second story is far more open-ended, but it is much, much more relatable. I’m not saying that the first game’s story was bad. It wasn’t. But this one informs the level order, the level design, the characters’ journeys, and your sense of Monument Valley’s history. When compared to this story, the first story seemed like it was written in as an afterthought.

The gameplay mechanics are still easy to understand and use. There’s a pretty cool new ability to draw the sacred geometry that Ro and the child create. It has me incessantly striving to make my geometry even prettier.

I rate this a 4/5, because there is still not enough content. This irritates me deeply. All I really want is more Monument Valley, but even when they released this new game, I didn’t get what seemed like my money’s worth. Four more levels at least, please, and I’ll throw all my money at ustwo games.
