Holy Hell! What Did I just watch?!

Holy Hell! What Did I just watch?!

**$!!!!@?%!?!&?**! That’s my reaction to movie # 6: Sleeping Beauty (2011). I know I wasn’t supposed to review a movie yet, and I usually wait till I finish reading my book, but this COULD NOT WAIT! I’m usually not a harsh critic…Usually. But there comes a time when I stumble on a film I just couldn’t deal … Continue reading

Troy & Abed in the morning!

Troy & Abed in the morning!

The morning’s almost over, but I thought it would be fun to do a Wednesday feature of my two favorite characters from the show “Community.” I’m very sad it’s moving to Friday’s next fall, but will still be watching! So here are my guests today Troy & Abed: Abed: And we’re back! Today we’ll be … Continue reading

Trailer Junkie

Trailer Junkie

So to make my movie span wider, I am changing “Limited Trailer Tuesdays” to “Trailer Junkie.” I will still try to go for the limited releases, but it will give me more flexibility in choosing trailers/films. For example today I’m going to write about Drive (2011), Starring Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan. As a Ryan Gosling … Continue reading

Who’s up for a Swim?

Who’s up for a Swim?

“Who the hell likes being stuck in a place where you can’t even smile? It’s hot as balls, everybody’s an asshole. I just wanna go home.” -Mikal, Wristcutters: A love Story. This is what I felt like today: hot as balls! (By the way, who came up with this saying? Urban Dictionary’s definition  makes sense.) All … Continue reading

You Got Some Mouth

The son of a crooked bootlegger, Michael Gallagher (Newman) is suspected of being involved … Continue reading

SS #2

SS #2

The movie: Loser (2000), starring Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari. One of my favorite Biggs films, its underrated, a little ridiculous, but cute. The song: Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus The video’s from Vevo, so sorry for the ads before it. The song is worth it 🙂

Sarah’s Key

Sarah’s Key

# 3 for books! Literally just finished reading this, and wanted to write a post right away. I have to wake up in 4 hours for work, but don’t care. Sarah’s Key by Tatiana DeRosnay, begins: “The characters in this novel are entirely fictitious. But several of the events described are not, especially those that occurred in … Continue reading

Limited Trailer Tuesday

Limited Trailer Tuesday

I’m starting this Tuesday segment, because I enjoy watching trailers. I’m the person who likes getting to the movies early, to watch all the previews. I enjoy the way someone chooses to place one clip next to another, making a story. If you can’t tell the cuts between one shot from another, because you’re so … Continue reading

What’s a weekend?

What’s a weekend?

I work most weekends, but I know the Countess of Grantham meant it a little differently when she said this. If you haven’t guessed already, I just started watching Downton Abbey on Netflix. I’ve heard all the hype and didn’t understand what the big deal was. Some spoiled, rich British people didn’t get me too … Continue reading
