Be Cool

Last night I watched the 2005 flick Be Cool. It was an entertaining movie overall and I don’t think it was meant to be taken seriously at all! The movie was brimming with high quality actors, most notably John Travolta and Uma Thurman. Other highlights were The Rock, Harvey Keitel, Vince Vaughn and Cedric the … Continue reading

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

I finally got to check a movie off my long list with the viewing of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. It’s the 1997 movie directed by Clint Eastwood that is based on the true story of Jim Williams, a wealthy art collector in Savannah, Georgia who killed his gay lover. The movie … Continue reading

One Fine Day

I recently watched the 1996 movie One Fine Day starring Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney. It was an entertaining romantic comedy and wasn’t quite as predictable as more recent rom-coms. This movie somewhat kept you guessing because the characters were against each other the whole way through until the end. The two main characters, Melanie … Continue reading

Pieces of April

So I logged onto hulu.com tonight to see if there were any new episodes of my favorite TV shows. After being sorely disappointed I clicked on the movie section and 2003’s Pieces of April¬†was the first thing to pop up. I decided it had been long enough and I would reacquaint myself with the movie. … Continue reading

The Blind Side

I went to see The Blind Side last night and it was amazing to say the least. I was soo excited to see this movie and it delivered beyond what I expected. I really can’t say enough about this movie, it was funny, sad, sweet, happy, nerve-racking, but beyond that it showed the true story … Continue reading

It’s Alive

On Friday I watched the 2008 flick It’s Alive. It was a remake of the 1974 film of the same name. It was horrendous, but at the same time entertaining because it was so silly. The plot is about a woman named Lenore, played by Bijou Phillips, who is pregnant. She leaves school to have … Continue reading

Foreign Land

I recently watched the movie Foreign Land, a.k.a. Terra Estrangeira, a Brazilian film from 1996, for a class. It was an interesting movie about a man whose mother dies and he travels as an immigrant to Spain to visit/learn about his mother’s roots. The movie started out slow at first but put eventually picked up. … Continue reading

Albino Farm

This past weekend I watched a terrible movie called Albino Farm. I really didn’t want to write about it on here because the movie was so bad, but if I can save one person from wasting their time than I will have done my job. The movie was written and directed by Joe Anderson and … Continue reading

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

As much as I am a lover of scary movies, I have an equal love for rom-coms that have girls drooling and men gagging all across the world. On Saturday after viewing Trick ‘r Treat we switched gears and watched Ghosts of Girlfriends Past — a guilty pleasure I’ve been wanting to see for awhile … Continue reading

Trick ‘r Treat

On Saturday night I watched Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat and it was soo good! It was the perfect Halloween movie. It touched on a lot of the typical Halloween plot lines — werewolves, serial killers, town legends, sexy costumes, and the Halloween spirit. The film’s creepy tagline is: Poison, Drowning, Claw, Or Knife. So … Continue reading
