The Accountant A Surprising Must See

200096Hey Readers,

This week I FINALLY got around to seeing The Accountant, which is surprising by itself, considering my taste in movies typically ranges from Wes Anderson, to Tarantino, or anything MARVEL and Disney put out. So, thrillers or action films (unless someone’s in a cape) don’t usually make my list. Additionally, having heard that it was about an individual with autism, I was apprehensive about stereotyping. The Accountant however is the first film in a while that surpassed my expectations. It’s a movie I recommend to nerds and non-nerds alike (not to mention, as a special ed. teacher I would also recommend it to other teachers and parents).

How would I explain it to non-nerds? It’s exciting, well written and well acted. How would I explain it to nerds? It’s like Batman… minus the batsuit… because of sensory issues! Continue reading “The Accountant A Surprising Must See” »

Staying up for Sherlock Part 3 The Final Problem – SPOILERS

S_S4_E3_Mycroft_Sherlock_openingHi Readers,

Where do I begin with “The Final Problem”? How about I start with a confession. I didn’t stay up for it. Despite the fact that it premiered at 7:00 instead of 9:00 and all my desires to do so, my husband’s late night at work meant that I had to wait until Monday to watch the episode. I mean sure, I could have watched it without him and pretended to be surprised when we watched it together, but only if I’d had the sociopathic skill-set of a Holmes sibling. Alas, I’m far too empathetic… and I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep spoilers to myself. Speaking of spoilers. Don’t read on if you haven’t seen the episode.
