TV Review: My Unexpected Love Affair With The Neighbors

neighbors.jpg

One thing about TV is that it can sometimes surprise you.  Sometimes you are so excited about a show and when it gets started, it’s disappointing.  Other times, you go into a pilot thinking it’s going to be terrible, and walk away pleasantly surprised.  This happens to me all the time, and one recent, rather extreme, case came to mind today as I was watching one of my shows. Have you ever seen an ad for a TV show or movie that just looks so absurd that you have to watch it?  Even though you are thoroughly convinced that you ... Read More »

Movie Review: One For The Money

oneforthemoneyfeat

Ok, this has been a long time coming but I think I’m finally able to write about it! haha  I don’t know if you followed my love of the Stephanie Plum series but this is something I’ve been discussing for a while.  I used to daydream about a movie being made from this series and came up with my own castings for the movie.  I think they were pretty good but whatevs. When it was announced that there would actually be a movie and I saw the real castings, I wasn’t so sure about it but I thought that if ...

Yesterday was my 37th birthday and to celebrate it my husband and I went out with friends to see the new Avengers movie in IMAX 3D.  It was AWESOME! Ordinarily I might write a review, but I really only have one thing to say… YES PLEASE!!! Read More »

The Visual Style of the Wire

wirefeat

While looking through my feeds this morning I saw an interesting link on Dooce.com.  When I saw The Wire mentioned I had to check it out. Beware! Before watching, there are possible spoilers in the video! [vimeo id=”39768998″ width=”600″ height=”350″] I’m a huge fan of The Wire, I’ve mentioned it in the past and whenever I talk to friends about TV show I all but hogtie them and  supervise to make sure they watch it.   There are so many reasons why I think this show is worth watching. I love the acting, the storyline, and how real it feels at ... Read More »

Movie Review: Temple Grandin

templefeat

A few years ago when I was watching the Emmy’s and saw Claire Danes win an award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Mini Series or Movie, for a movie called Temple Grandin.  When I saw bits of it in the intro I it caught my attention and I made a mental note to check it out.  I ended up watching it the next day and I loved it. My husband and I have been watching a new series called Homeland, which is great and I will probably write more about it later, and it also stars Claire Danes.  We ... Read More »

You Know is Bad if You Cry at the Trailers!

cryingfeat

I’m a weepy weeper at the best of times, and I am too lazy to look back through my posts and find all the ridiculous moments where I have unnecessarily busted into tears in the past, but be sure, there are many. Movies and TV are no exception, I cry for everything.  I cry during romantic comedies, I cry when people achieve greatness, I cry when someone crosses a finish line or fails to do so, I cry when the wind blows… I don’t know if it’s my emotional state with my recent weight gain or perhaps my anxiety with ...

Review: We Need to Talk About Kevin

kevinfeat

Ages ago I read the book We Need to Talk About Kevin and this is what I had to say about it: This book sucked hardcore for the first few chapters and I had to force myself through it. It was long winded and the author appears to go out of her way to use run-on sentences and difficult language. I hate giving up on a book though, and I tend to try to push through them in case there is something better to be found. I’m glad I did with this one, because it got very very good. Once ...

Jonah Mowry–Sad or Sham?

jonahfeat

I don’t remember the last time I felt so completely taken by someone on the internet.  By taken, I mean shammed, bamboozled, tricked… It all started yesterday morning when I saw this video, made by Jonah Morwry, on George Takei’s Facebook Page… [youtube id=”TdkNn3Ei-Lg” width=”600″ height=”350″] Sad, right?  Honestly, I was sobbing my head off watching this video.  I shared it on Facebook and talked about it with my friends.  I couldn’t believe that this adorable boy was being made fun of and felt so terribly about himself.  What kind of world do we live in?!  I watched it about ...

Fat Ad Shaming Women?

I just read this article on my beloved ONTD (I LOVE this site, so great for celeb gossip) and I’m all sorts of torn about what I think about it. The gist is, the overweight lady on the bottom of the ad has a website that caters to chubby chasers, people who like big women.  She has photos for sale on her website and Ashley Madison, the company that is being called out in the article, bought the photo and paid a license for it.  Now, this gives them the right to use the photo in whatever way they want… ...

David Beckham Goes Undercover for Ellen

[youtube id=”y4yDNWlvK6s” width=”600″ height=”350″] This morning I was catching up on my news feed when I saw this video on Dooce and it had me roaring with laughter. I so wish we got her show here in Holland, perhaps I need to start downloading it. I may end up divorced if I don’t wear my head phones though, my husband hates her.  Crazy fool! Read More »

OMG! It’s Here! One For the Money Stephanie Plum Trailer!

plumfeat

It’s here it’s here!! I don’t know how I feel about it, I have a bad feeling, but it’s here! So scared and excited! [youtube id=”ld4x5aymjj4″ width=”600″ height=”350″] I honestly have no idea what to say.  I’m still on the fence about so many things.  As you know I’m not really feeling some of these casting decisions.  After seeing the trailer I still feel the same about Heigl as Stephanie Plum and I’m starting to come around to the idea of Debbie Reynolds as Grandma Mazur, even though I still think she’s TOO DAMN BIG AND PRETTY!  Not that she’s ...
