Hail, Caesar! (2016)

The trailer for this film was superb so I needed to see this film. I let the reviews dishearten me a bit, but still, I waited for the right moment. Hail, Caesar was written and directed by Ethan and Joel Coen (the Coen brothers). I have seen several of their films before: Raising Arizona (1987),…

Alien: Covenant (2017)

The Alien story is well loved in our house. Everything about Ripley makes us happy and the Xenomorphs (aliens), even though they are the “bad guys”, we still love them as well. Foxy Husband and I are particularly tickled by the evolution and change of shape/size/color of the Xenomorphs. Alien: Covenant was directed by Ridley…

5 Fandom Friday: Youtube Channels

Hello everybody! Today’s 5 Fandom Friday is fueled by my inability to stop watching/finding Youtube channels to subscribe to. Now, if I could, I’d just list all the ones I subscribe to. But that would defeat the purpose of picking a few! These five are the channels I check/watch every day. PHOTOGRAPHY Jessica Kobeissi I…

Bad Moms (2016)

I wanted to see this film when it came out but as it goes with most stories, I didn’t have they money at the time. However, now that I have seen it, my life is complete. Probably. Mostly. Bad Moms was directed and written by Jon Lucas & Scott Moore. Jon and Lucas have worked…

the Tall Society – Tall Sisters Brunch

Some of you may not know this about me, but I am 6 ft 1 & 1/2 inches tall. Some of you may be going WOAH! That’s one tall drink of water. Or PSH! Not even tall till you can touch your elbow to the ceiling (thanks for that one, Dad!) To which I respond:…

May Book Haul

So I did the thing where I bought more books despite not finishing my to read pile. Out of the five books that I did buy, I have only read one. I also bought another “book” which was really a book of suggested photography contracts (mostly examples). I went to the local Barnes and Noble,…

Marvel Madness: Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (2017)

As you may know, I am a slut for space. I freaking love pictures of space, movies about space, reading about space. I’m not an expert on any level but it is just one thing that I love wholly and completely. This movie happens to take place in space with a gang of misfits that…

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…
