This is one of my favourite poems to have ever written because of all the twist and turns with all the characters and just the randomness of it all. I thought it would be a good idea to post this poem, a month after the premiere of Logan as it is really a poem that is dedicated to Wolverine and Hugh Jackman himself. (by the way, I still need to watch Logan)

Uncle Flash Gordon

Walking down the street
Craving for something sweet
Kicking the sand and making shells disappear
Running towards it, I’m getting near
Oh! I tripped and now it’s gone
It’s so hot, I need a fan
I’m wearing shorts and a vest
Keeping cool at my very best
When I thought all hope was lost
I spotted the sign ’99p’, it costs
I ran as fast as I can
Pushing and shoving “Get out off my way, Man!”
I saw it, one mile away
50 customers here to stay
I had an idea, its wicked
Free toys for every kid
All the kids ran to Toys’R’Us
Their mothers ran after them due to all the fuss
Yes! One more customer in line
Mr Whippy with flake, you will be mine
When it was finally my turn, I got a shock
All ice cream were OUT OF STOCK!
The man said ‘It was the last customer who took it
He was thin, wearing a costume and kinda tall and fit
He was so fast some of the ice cream turned into mash’
I knew it… I knew it… Stupid Uncle Flash!

Online Abuse Experience

The internet is a dark place so why do we use it? The internet provides us with the means of communication and expression. A lot of people build relationships and friendships online, people are able to give and gain knowledge and we are constantly viewing cat videos. Being digital natives, we are embedded in our technologies than we have ever been before. However, the internet also holds a lot of darkness that most of us have probably never experienced and will never have to. I thought this too. No one on the internet can ever come and upset me or anyone I know because we haven’t done anything wrong. That was until yesterday. 

The day was nearly coming to an end. My sisters and I were in my room because we are all planning on doing homework together and just chilling out after a long day. My youngest sister and I were watching a video and my other sister was on her phone. Everything was fine until my other sister let out a sob. I asked her what’s the matter and she just handed me her phone and said ‘It’s not fair, Trisha!’. I looked at her phone which was open on her Instagram page at a recent drawing she posted. What I saw both enraged and disgusted me. A guy commented:

‘get drawing lessons from the make a wish foundation.’  

I cannot believe someone would ever say that to someone they know never mind some random stranger they come across online. I nearly cried as well as the fact that someone could be so mean and rude to someone who just wanted to share her love for movie characters and her passion for drawing. This guy had been posting on her Instagram a couple of weeks ago. He was at first just commenting how dreadful it was and my sister being a friendly person would comment on how she knows it isn’t perfect and how her drawings are all a process of self-expression; nothing had to be perfect and she can always go back and improve on her next drawing. She showed me a couple of his comments and I told her that I’m sure he is just a one of troll and will go away soon. But he didn’t. He continued on for two weeks telling my sister that she should ‘go make a GoFundMe page so they can donate money to pay for your drawing lessons’ to comparing her with amputees. My sister was devastated and kept asking me why she is being made into a victim and asking me if she is doing something wrong by posting online. I didn’t know what to say. 

For the next hour, we all discussed it and my parents suggested that she just block him and even told her to send him some vulgar messages before blocking him. If I was a terrible person and wanted to stoop to his level, I would have sent him a long message filled with explicit language telling him that this is such a sad thing he is doing trying to put someone down just out of the blue and trying to knock someone’s confidence. He should be ashamed of himself and I pity him and his life.  But because I am not a confrontational person, I just held my sister’s phone and pressed Block

I really hope that he never finds my sister’s online accounts on other social media sites because what he is doing is such a harmful thing that could have really done a serious damage to my sister. I never thought that this would ever happen to someone I know so it really made me upset and angry. My sister is such a great person and sometimes I do tease her on her drawing skills but I would never think of comparing her to someone who has a disability or is on their death bed. If this person ever comes back and shows himself, especially when he abuses my sister again, I will be so angry and I’m afraid vulgar language will be used this time. But I pray this does not happen. 

My sister is doing fine now and she said that she will carry on drawing because it really is something she loves doing. We will put this guy and his comments behind us because he really isn’t worth our time. Please go support my sister and follow her on her on her Instagram page: fassyradavoy. She draws things related to the Marvel Universe including X-Men and Spiderman as well as other movies and original concepts. 



He carries a shield but not a sword
He travels the world and never gets bored
He is strong and wears his underwear on the outside
He barely smiles and only laughs on the inside
He only has a green glowing ring
He can see past, present and future: everything
He is very angry so beware!
He carries a hammer and has long blonde hair
He creates, invents and date someone called Pepper
He has a bow and arrow but isn’t filled with danger
He can stretch all the way around the world
He is hot, sizzling, on fire and doesn’t have to say a word
He is big and angry and called Ben
So much for the Top Ten!

This is a random poem I thought up one day when I and my sister were talking about superheroes and action movies. I tried to include all her favourite superheroes in the poem at the time. We both enjoyed this poem but with Logan recently showing in the cinemas, I really need to update this poem as my sister has become more of a Marvel fan than D.C. (and maybe also make a villains version as well)

Disney Remakes

I really love Disney and being a massive Disney fan, I often turn to the movies to watch in my spare time and even live by the inspirational quotes from the movies. Recently, they made a Beauty and the Beast remake, which doesn’t come out until the 17th of March (but I will definitely be watching it). From what I have seen, the movie looks so amazing and features some of my famous actors and actresses including Emma Watson and Sir Ian McKellen. Now, Disney is in the works with remaking other movies such as Mulan and the Lion King, which we all have to look out for to find out how they will actually be turning these animated classics into live-action (I mean, is the Lion King just gonna be featuring CGI animals or will it be actually a human version?). Either way, I cannot wait to find out and go see it.

But, there are now 22 Disney remakes that are in consideration and as much as I really love Disney I have some concerns for several of them. Here are ten Disney remakes, which are making me scratch my head in wonder and worry:

Genie in A Lamp
Ever wondered how the Genie got inside the Lamp in the first place? Well good news, Disney will be turning it into a movie. I really think this is a good movie to make as the genie is one of my favourite characters ever. The genie has so much potential and backstory that needs to be explored that we never found out from Aladdin. I cannot wait to see this movie and finally find out some answers. My only concern for this movie is how they will ever find anyone to match the brilliant work of the late Robin Williams and whether this will be a tribute to him in some way. I am looking forward to finding out.

Prince Charming
Which one? The Prince is getting a story. It is unclear whether this is Charming from Cinderella or Snow White’s Prince but either way some prince will be getting a movie of his own. To some degree, this film will be great as most fairy tales, especially romantic ones revolve around a princess. So its about time a prince got a movie too cause gender equality and all. But at the same time, what does a prince do? I try and picture some adventure he could have gone on or slaying a dragon like Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty (maybe they should a movie about his perspective instead) but I have nothing. So unless this is a comedy about royalty, I will probably need a clearer synopsis before I decide on watching this film.

A Visit to the Hundred Acre Woods
This one I found slightly sad. An adult Christopher Robin goes and visits his friends in the Hundred Acre Woods. Let us think about this first. I am guessing he will probably be in his 30s or 40s and might have a child and the story will be about how he introduces his child to Winnie the Pooh and company, just like how Andy gave his toys to Bonnie in Toy Story 3 (I’m still crying about that) and it would be really sad cause he cannot play with them anymore and Winnie the Pooh will not recognise him cause he is an adult. I just hope that he does not just simply walk into the Hundred Acre Wood as an adult like a crazy person cause that would be like Peter Pan growing up and deciding that he is probably better of as never have grown up at all and just strolled into Neverland. We will just have to wait to find out.

Tinkerbell the Fairy. Tinkerbell. Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure. Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. Tinkerbell in Secret of the Wings. Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy. Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast. I have seen so many Tinkerbell movies so I do not know if I wanna see another movie about Tinkerbell. Unless Tinkerbell turns out to be evil (cause of the jealous trait) I do not think I will be watching this one.

Peter Pan.
Really? Again? I have seen so many Peter Pan film, television and play versions to last me a lifetime. Heck, I have been in a Peter Pan play when I was seven so I do not know if I can take seeing another one. Also, with so many versions how will they top the previous Peter Pans? The answer is probably they cannot but I guess it is just another great addition to the whole collection box of Peter Pan stories.

A live action remake of a puppet that turns into a real boy. I am actually looking forward to this remake as not being a fan of this movie before means that a live version one might help me change my mind. I have also been watching Once Upon A  Time (one of my favourite tv shows) and their interpretation of Pinocchio is so good. I will definitely be giving this movie a try. I will love it even more if they depict the Pleasure Island scene in an awesome way that has never been seen before (plus being a fan of CGI transformations, I just want to see how they turn children into donkeys).   

Oliver Twist- Hip-Hop Version
Interesting. This movie is one of the classics so giving it a modern twist will help it enter the contemporary public sphere. I mean according to reports it will have Ice Cube in it so I’m certain that it will be different from other versions of Oliver Twist. But hopefully a good different. 

Oh, look another Cinderella story. I am seriously gonna be giving this a pass as Cinderella has been done so many times before. I wish they would just do a Cinderella movie but from someone else’s point of view that is not Cinderella. There are so many potentials: Anastasia (one of the stepsisters) needs a movie about her and that baker she fell in love with, Drizella (the other stepsister) needs some movie exposure, the Stepmother needs a movie on how she became such a bitch, a movie on what the fairy godmother does in her spare time when she is not granting Cinderella’s wishes, a movie about Cinderella’s mother or they should even make a movie about Cinderella’s animal friends. Just please no more Cinderella remakes that are only about Cinderella. 

Rose Red
A gore version of Snow White based on the Grimm Brothers tale. I am normally not into gory movies cause I hate horror but this movie sounds interesting and one of the stories I heard about when I was very young. I do not think that this movie has been fully captured on screen for a film audience and has only appeared as mini stories on tv. I hope this will be an amazing movie that will probably be targeted at a more adult audience and might be a horror but I guess I could make an exception just this time so I can watch it. 

Night on Bald Mountain
Based of Fantasia. One of the first Disney movies to be made. A film which I love to watch over and over again. Enough Said.

These are my verdicts on some of the Disney remakes they are considering on doing. There are still much more in the line up including the Little Mermaid and Dumbo, so check out the internet for these other films. Also, these are just initial thoughts and I might change my mind and watch them regardless whether I like them or not once there are some more details on each of the movies. Leave a comment below on what you think of this article or any feedback on what you think of these movies being made.
