CAGE FEVER: Snake Eyes (1998)

It’s another wacky adventure into a mere glimpse into Nicolas Cage’s psyche. Or multiple Cage’s psyches, depending on your theories about the man. Snake Eyes was directed by Brian De Palma (who also has a writing credit for the film). He has also directed Carrie (1976), Scarface (1983), and Mission Impossible (1996). It was also…

Frozen (2013)

I realize that I am super behind on animated films; not for lack of trying but mostly lack of funds. I finally got to see Frozen for the first time and the tie in to Once Upon a Time clicked and the whole LET IT GOOOOOOO made so much more sense. I’m only like 3-4…

R. J. Hernandez’s An Innocent Fashion

An Innocent Fashion, written by R. J. Hernandez, is one of those coming of age novels; although it is set in modern times, it reads more like a coming of age during a time before when each word mattered in a story, when everything was precise and dramatic. Not to say that books aren’t written…

Minimalism: A Documentary (2015)

This is a slight departure from my usual movies and films adventures, but I actually enjoy documentaries from time to time. As I search for the great balance of consumerism and minimalism, I thought this documentary would be a good choice. Minimalism was directed by Matt D’Avella, which is currently his only credit in the…

Marvel Madness: Logan (2017)

My husband and I saw this in theaters together, and then a week later my bestie saw it (without having seen any previous X-MEN/Wolverine films) and so now that she’s on this X-Men/Wolverine oddyessy, I’ve been able to catch a few with her and decided to write this up. [Old Man] Logan was written and…

Visions (2016)

This film was definitely not amazing, however, I did keep me hooked long enough to watch the whole story. I think part of it was because it was produced by the same people that did Paranormal Activity and Insidious. Visions is written by Lucas Sussman. He is known for Below (2002) and an episode of…

End of March Update

I know I have been posting sporadically and unpredictably. My health has been less than upstanding and it has prevented me from outings, events, relaxing, and quite honestly, thinking clearly. I will be attempting to get back on track with the Monday, Wednesday, & Friday schedule – as well as the themed posts, like Cage…

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire

It took me quite a few years to even get interested in reading the Wicked series, but once I did, I went through them quickly. So, in that spirit, I decided to start reading Gregory Maguire’s other fable/fairytale based stories. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire was a darker take on the story…

Cage Fever – The Rock (1996)

Don’t let this title fool you, this movie is not about Dwayne Johnson, former WWF/WWE wrestler and legend. Because honestly, how could Nicolas Cage “logically” impersonate a 6’5” Samoan man beast with his magical eyebrows? At least they have one thing in common, which is their affinity for the King of Rock and Roll, ELVIS….

Maria Dahvana Headley’s The Year of Yes

I happen to love memoirs, especially funny ones! And this one made me laugh out loud. I picked up this book because the library didn’t have the one I wanted and it seemed like it would be an adventure. I was not disappointed (in this book. I was disappointed the library didn’t have the original…

Belated Five Fandom Friday

In honor of (Old Man) Logan coming out in theaters today, I decided to share my favorite X-Men movie universe characters with everybody. Logan/Wolverine I was impressed with Logan/Wolverine the first time I saw him. But more importantly, I started to love him when he stole Scott’s/Cyclops’ motorcycle. The best part is of course, his…

Birthday Bash and Health Update

Hello readers! It has been a week or so but I thought I’d supply you with a quick update. As some of you are aware, I am a late 20’s adult with one of those awful chronic diseases that most people don’t start feeling till they’re 50. That’s right, arthritis! And it’s in my lower…
