Missed 2017 Movies

For whatever reason, I didn’t get to see these new releases last year. Hopefully I can catch up this year. January: A Monster Calls February: The Space Between Us the Great Wall Get Out the Girl With All the Gifts March: Table 19 Personal Shopper the Belko Experiment Ghost in the Shell April: Going In…

the Three Musketeers (2011)

Although it was my goal to read the book before ever seeing any version of the film, that didn’t happen. I caved and watched the 1993 version with Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, and Chris O’Donnell. After that I saw the characters briefly appear/reappear in Once Upon a Time, I decided to plunge right into another…

Winter Wishlist

It is time to start putting away the tank tops and pulling out the sweaters and winter coats. These are a few things I would like to get for the cold season ahead!   1. My most wished for item on this list is a Jughead Jones crown beanie (from the Archie comics/Riverdale tv show)….

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

I love classic books which makes me believe that it’s no surprise that with a hop, skip, and a jump away that I would love classic monster films. I am fully aware of the fact that this film isn’t a classic, but it definitely felt like a good old fashioned monster film. With some modern…

Welcome Back!

Hello readers! I’ve been on an unexpected hiatus from the blog but I’m back! I was feeling super burnout and like this blog was a chore instead of something fun, but I miss writing. Especially about books and movies and such! I’m sorry for not updating for a while. Hopefully we’ll get back in the…

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)

This movie caught my eye immediately! The first trailer I saw and Foxy Husband explained, “It’s Luc Besson. That’s why. He did the Fifth Element. The Professional.” And of course, it made sense. I was (am) enamored with those films. He also told me that the reason the Fifth Element was made was because Luc…

MARVEL MADNESS: Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

I’m not one to see the same movie, over and over and redone and rebooted, especially since I’ve never really cared for much for the main character but since I did enjoy Peter/Spider-Man appearance in Civil War, and Foxy Husband was paying for the tickets, I thought I might as well give this one a…

Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)

It took me 6 years but I finally got to see this romantic comedy. It was worth it! Crazy, Stupid, Love was directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. Ficarra and Requa are a great team and are known for I Love You Phillip Morris (2009), Focus (2015), and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2015). It was…

Susan Strasser’s Waste and Want: A Social History of Trash

In my never ending quest of discovering what makes me happy (and books is totally high up on that list), I took a peek into minimalism. I am fully aware that I will never be a minimalist, but I did step back from that concept and looked more closely into less is more, which I…

the Trigger Effect (1996)

This one was another one my husband insisted I see. In part it has to do with some actors in the movie popping up in other movies/television shows. I had no idea what to expect and I liked it better that way. The Trigger Effect was written and directed by David Koepp. He is known…

the Visit (2015)

I was totally intrigued by this film when I first saw the trailer. I tend to enjoy spooky films filmed with hand held cameras (the Blair Witch Project – 1999, Paranormal Activity – 2007, Cloverfield – 2008, Quarantine – 2008, District 9 – 2009, the Fourth Kind – 2009, the Last Exorcism – 2010, Chronicle…
