Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick is the second autobiography that I have listened to in audio form as read by the author, and it is another one that I highly recommend. Anna Kendrick’s story is an example of someone who found the thing that they loved to do and kept pursuing it. It also shows that success does not necessarily change how we perceive ourselves, it just changes how much money we have. Anyone who has seen some of Anna Kendrick’s tweets will already have an idea of what this book is going to be like because it is full of her sarcastic personality.

Another in my ongoing series wondering on the question… how are they going to pull off this movie? This time it’s Logan, entering in as the 10th X-Men franchise movie, the third solo Wolverine movie, and as a theoretical adaptation from the comics – especially of the Old Man Logan story. That’s a lot of baggage to carry into a movie.
Meanwhile, the trailers have shown us a movie stripped down to simplicity, to emotions. And violence, something that follows Wolverine wherever he goes. It’s worth noting this is also going to be rated R so they’re doing a bit there which they haven’t before with him, but this definitely looks like a movie that serves more purpose than just an excuse to make an R-rated Wolverine movie.
To be honest, the movie just looks good and is also getting great feedback from folks who have seen it, from the people involved, or even just people seeing the trailers. This may be a movie that transcends its superhero-movie subgenre and becomes just a standalone classic. Unfortunately, that’s the hype and expectation level they’ve gotten me to, so it has a lot to live up to!
But to get to that point, well, how are they going to pull that off?
