Aside from the new Hanna Jo story recently, I haven’t written on this blog in months. That’s true, even with Wonder Woman coming out not that long ago, and even more recently, Spider-Man: Homecoming. I never even penned a commentary on Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2!
But now I’m back, and what has brought me out of these non-writing doldrums? None of those films, actually, but rather another oddity of a film that I recently watched, and it’s called Fish Story. Continue reading If my solitude was a fish, it’d be so enormous, so militant: Fish Story (2009)

So, going off of that indelible mark only, and absolutely no further research whatsoever, I’m going to try to recount the movie’s story. Continue reading Things that make you go “Wha–!?!?!??!??!!!?” – Twilight of the Cockroaches
