The trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 dropped and it looks fine. I know I'll watch it because I did enjoy the first; but it seems like it just expanded the scope on the most shallow level and is redoing jokes from the first. I would like to be surprised, but I feel like I've caught the sum of it. Catching the surprise of the first is impossible--the past is a land one can't return to blah blah blah--but I do wish the trailer conveyed the same scale of the first. Crossing fingers that they expand some of the supporting characters and focus on the terror of moving on into the unknown.

Steve McQueen has been one of my favorites director since Hunger so I very much excited for his upcoming projects; but I think out of all of them the Widows movie sounds most interesting.

TV Stuff

Sleepy Hollow: I like none of what they have done with Katrina. I just want to stop the magical forced pregnancy trope being dropped on female characters who are already trapped in passive purgatory thanks to writers' choices. Then they add the ~power of maternal love that makes Katrina not want to stop the demon baby forced into her body by her evil son. Enough. The Mills sisters were great: I love how they responded so differently to the same trauma and are still reaching across to strengthen each other. I would prefer if instead of the mother being dead that she was in prison for a false crime. I am watching the midseason finale but I am hoping the show gets better in its second half.

The Flash: I have not seen last week's so I don't know the reason for the Iris and Barry split, but I do love how it affected both of them. I do not agree with the notion of Iris being worthless in the narrative; there is value in seeing the shaping of the perception of a superhero. The show has gotten better with the character. I'm still unsure about Eddie; if I didn't know about canon events I could like him completely, but if certain things are true. I am still so suspicious of Wells.
