First blog post

This is the post excerpt.


Hello world. I’m Franklynne. A student in Morocco and an editor. I started this blog because I’m constantly giving my opinions on movies and series that my roommate says she would read online if she could find it. I need a hobby and I decided to stick with what I know. I love movies, books and tv series and music but I’m not going into the music bit because there’s a whole lot there that I don’t understand. I’m also going to post some of my poetry and the occasional short story, so I hope you tell me what you really think. No rudeness will be tolerated because that’s not how I roll. I hope you enjoy your stay on my blog. 


Deductive Reviewing

Sherlock series 4 was hearts wrenchingly beautiful. The messages, the delivery, the storyline and the acting were all flawless. Never once did I scream “BORING” or “NEXT” as I am wont to do when watching some series(TV shows) these days. I only wish it were longer but Moffat and Gatiss, the geniuses, take the whole “leave them wanting more” very seriously. I was riveted from start to finish of the series. The death of Mary was heartsbreaking. Eurus is such a complex but beautiful character who just wanted to play with her brother. Admittedly, the value and sense of self-worth Sherlock finally gained was amazing. We see a Sherlock who has grown and matured in a beautiful way because he had to. We see Mary as the genius she always was and her dynamic with Sherlock and Watson was a thing of dreams. I can honestly say that I cried for the confused and lonely child Eurus was. Sherlock finally remembering Lestrade’s (I’d say Greg but I don’t want to confuse anyone) name was a good touch. The Woman is still in the picture, yay.
Molly is such a beautiful and tolerant person. Sherlock finally showed everyone that beautiful soul of his.

Mycroft is SENTIMENTAL! He loves Sherlock and the rest of their family so much I think it scares him what lengths he’s willing to go to for them. That’s why he won’t let himself form any other emotional attachments. I think that John behaved badly. There was Eurus and also how he treated Sherlock when Mary died. Yes he was hurt but he gutted Sherlock, the one person who‘s capable of helping him heal properly. My roommate disagrees but that’s my opinion. He knows he can wound Sherlock like no other but he still carried on with it. For ages! I’m glad Mary set him straight and they could finally begin to heal together because Sherlock lost her too. Mrs. Hudson is my hero because she remained strong and she helped them heal. Mrs. Hudson is so cool and fierce!


There’s the beauty of family and friends that pulls you in and doesn’t let go. Unlike other series, there are no unnecessary details in Sherlock. In fact you have to be quick so you can pick up the clues as they are presented along the way. The best relationship in the series is Sherlock’s relationship with Rosie. It’s so beautiful! Sure Rosie has a relationship with John, Mary, Molly and Mrs. Hudson but her relationship with Sherlock is the best. Series four was torturously wonderful and I can only say “NEXT!” I can’t wait for series five. Finally, to all of you out there who need reminding, “KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF IT!” Ta!

Luna Beau

This is the third poem I wrote. I was stargazing when inspiration struck. Tell me what you think.

Gracefully, oh so gracefully, that lady

She bears her pale beauty

Flirting with the stars

At times courting Mars


Waltzing on the skies, your dance floor

Sometimes disappearing through a hidden door

With a suitor or mayhap alone

Then returning to rest on your mobile throne


Come our dear beau!

Grace our skies with thy beautiful hue

For you alone

Are our moon

As you may or may not have noticed, things have been a bit sketchy lately and I’ve been MIA. No more. I’ve finally ironed out a posting schedule. Every second and fourth Friday I’ll post a poem and every Wednesday I’ll post a review (series: tv series, book series,or movie). Thank you for your patience with me and my temporary fickleness. Hope you enjoy the poem. Tell me if the name is suitable or if I should change it, is it complete? ‘Til I blog again. Ta!

Hearts Ripped Out!!!

Logaaaaaaaaan! Is it just me or does the fact that Charles Xavier has no control over his mind seem funny? He killed the other mutants? RETCON! Or did he? The movie only hints at this. Does this mean Magneto and The Juggernaut are hiding out somewhere? They couldn’t have been affected by his mental assault because of their helmets, right? So where were they? Charles was still alive, they can’t say age got them. The Albino (Caliban), lol, so sassy and patient. Logan, bringing us the gore but with a walking stick? Basically since he’s not healing anymore and he’s older. Old can still be awesome but not with the abuse his body has taken and is still taking. It’s only 2029 people! I expected Wolverine to outlive me. The kid is cute though. Although she has me wondering if the healing and claws come with that attitude she seems to have inherited along with the good, the bad, and the awesome that is The Wolverine. Figures they’d need to hand the reins to a lady when Hugh Jackman steps down because how else would they limit the riots? I had a one woman riot in my bedroom and pissed my roommate off. In fact, don’t know if anyone noticed but I went on a strike because Hugh Jackman sheathed his adamantium claws. I thought he was one of the best Wolverine/Logan/James ever and I can’t picture anyone else taking on the the role. He brought Wolverine to life in a way we will all remember even in 2029. I’m heartbroken that he has to give up the gore. The acting is good but the plot is riddled with more holes than Logan at the end. SPOILERS! What happened to the other mutants? If they indeed stopped being born shouldn’t the same have happened to humans according to the theories explained in the previous movies (do-overs included)?  Are we still going to call the character Wolverine now that the claws have been passed on? After firmly establishing in the previous movies that Wolverine can’t be killed and that he doesn’t age naturally then killing him in this movie when he is now OLD, I can honestly say the writers are as confused as they tried to make their audience. Now they’re trying to follow the comic books? Why? Logaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan! I can’t wait to see what they do next.

logan noooooooooooo

I wish Laura(Dafne Keen) all the best taking on after James(Hugh Jackman). Goodbye Professor(Patrick Stewart), or will we see you in the next X-Men movie? Caliban(Stephen Merchant), you’re a light dark times. Laura, sweet and awesome Laura, you’re too young to watch this movie so I’m telling James. Goodbye Hugh Jackman as (Wolverine/Logan/James). I will never forget when you were The Wolverine. Thank you for nearly two decades. As I’ve been saying since I saw the movie, Logaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan! Ta!Logaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan

Mama Africa

I love Africa

It’s not Antarctica

You’ll never find a replica

I like to call it Exotica

A land of beautiful green

Minerals abundant like you’ve never seen

Beauty inside and out like a lovely sheen

Our precious Exotica I mean

Whenever things get practical

And times are critical 

It’s difficult to be formal

Because our love for Exotica is unconditional

So I wrote this when I was in high school. What do you think? Is it incomplete? Is the title fitting? Is it a decent poem? Let me know what you think. Remember be honest, not rude. I’ll post a review of xXx: The Return of Xander Cage or a review of Logan next. You decide. Until next time. Ta!

It’s old but it’s gold

Dormammu, I’ve come to review.

So let’s talk about Doctor Strange. I thought Benedict Cumberbatch was flawless in that role and he perfectly captured the overly bloated ego that is Stephen Strange. Sorry, Dr. Stephen Strange. He also brought a bit of his personality to the role, thank you very much, his #Beyhive membership and the not actually having a love interest bit while still having that someone in his life. I couldn’t imagine anyone better for that role. When I heard they were making a Doctor Strange movie my first thought was “get Cumberbatch!” I decided to review this because it’s one of those movies I saw before getting a blog that just had me yearning for a blog. The acting was flawless many thanks. Benedict Cumberbatch(Dr. Stephen Strange) who took my breath away as always, Rachel McAdams(Christine Palmer) who never disappoints and keeps us coming back for more, Tilda Swinton(The Ancient One) who is timelessly brilliant and curiously effortlessly adaptable, Chiwetel Ejiofor(Modor) who keeps raising the bar and making me anticipate his next movie because I know he will surprise me, Benedict Wong(Wong, surprise!) who always makes me laugh with his kick-ass sense of humor(see what I did there?), Mads Mikkelsen(Kaecilius) who always royally blows the door off of the box when he clashes into action, and the rest of the cast were great! I personally can’t wait for Thor: Ragnarok (Nov. 5, 2017), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7, 2017) and The Avengers: Infinity War (2018). The cast and crew brought a movie to screen that restored my belief in MARVEL (I saw that picture of Cap saying “Hail HYDRA”). Keep it coming Cumberbatch. You’re makings every cumbercookie very proud. Scott Derrickson, you’ve outdone yourself. I would personally like the Eye of Agamotto so I can endlessly rewatch Doctor Strange and still have the time for a normal life. Making Dormammu howl in agony, such fun! Ta!
