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 ...

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 »

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 ...

Rotterdam Film Festival: Skarsgard In The Flesh!

filmfestival11feat

Oh, sorry no… not that one.  It was this one!  Here’s what happened. The other day my friend Genevieve asked if I wanted to get together in town today and maybe see a movie.  When we realized that all the theaters in town aren’t showing regular films because of the Rotterdam International Film Festival, she asked if I wanted to do that instead.  I was all for it as I’d gone last year and really enjoyed it. We both sort of forgot about it and today decided last minute to go have some lunch and check out one of the ... Read More »

I Am Switching Teams!

kellanklein.jpg

I’m a fan of Twilight, I don’t think that’s any secret around here.  Even though the first movie frustrated me with Bella’s lip biting and head wobbling, the missing pieces and the bits thrown in that weren’t even in the book… I’ve still watched it again.  Ok more than once, leave me alone! While reading the books I was also sort of 50/50 in regards to which team I was on.  Sometimes I felt like I was Team Edward, sometimes I felt like I was Team Jacob.  Neither one really won me over completely.  I loved them both equally for ...

Jeepers!

Yesterday our friend Alan came into Rotterdam for a minor “Movie Marathon”. All three of us have the Ulimited Movie Card so we decided to go see a few movies, since we can see as many as we want for “free”. First we saw Over The Hedge, which was hilariously funny and totally pic worthy. I won’t say too much about the movie because I know some of you haven’t seen it yet, but I had to post the above pic because it was one of the funniest moments for me. This movie just totally cracked me up and there ... Read More »

The Change of Life

When I hear the term “The change of life” I go back in time to when I was a child and my mother had a hysterectomy. My father kept saying that my mother was going through “The change of life” and all I wondered was, what was wrong with the one she had? That’s not the change of life I’m talking about though, I’m talking about yesterday… Saturday June 24, 2006… which will now go down in the Soldaat history books as one of the major turning points in our lives. It was the first day since the year 2000 ... Read More »

Mmorpg’s and Stuff

EQ2 Breigh Originally uploaded by Breigh.com. So for the last year or so I’ve been playing World of Warcraft pretty steadily. I joined a great guild of mainly south africans and we have had a TON of laughs and good times, but like any game I’m starting to feel quite “meh” about it. So yesterday I downloaded the free trial for Everquest II (EQ2) and decided to give it a go. This is my temporary character (Breigh) for the 7 day trial. I still need to play it for a while to know if I really like it though. At ... Read More »

Phantom Stress

I’m stressing!! I don’t know what I’m stressing about but man am I stressing! For the past few nights I’ve slept like crap, having weird dreams and unable to sleep for more than an hour or so at a time. Twice I’ve woken up with a weird burny chest pain but I haven’t been eating anything that would cause it, not that I know of anyway. For some reason my teeth are always clenched… so much so that I sometimes notice it and when I try to open my mouth to yawn or something my jaw hurts! I wish I ... Read More »

Movies! Movies! Movies!

While my parents were here we got together with our friend Alan for dinner and a movie. That afternoon before we went out he was pitching the idea of this unlimited movies card he got a while back and why we should get one. Here in NL there is a chain of movie theaters called Pathe and with their Pathe Unlimited card you can see unlimited movies for 17,50 euros / month. At first I wasn’t too keen on it but the more I thought about it, and the more Alan told me tales about him going to one movie, ... Read More »

King Kong

Last night Xander and I went out with some friends to see King Kong. I thought it was a pretty good movie but some things didn’t make sense to me. When she was first hung by the arms for King Kong to take her and he pulled her off, how did her arms not break. The scene was quick but when he pulled her off that thing and the way her arms moved, it looked like there was no way they could not be broken from it. Yet, there she was 20 minutes later.. juggling. When he got to the ... Read More »
