Z is for Zoe!!

Wrapping up

My month long journey of blogging from A to Z, my final post is about Zoe Saldana.

Center Stage was the first movie that I had ever seen Zoe in and knew she would be around for a long time. Not to mention she’s flawless!!

Then she was in Crossroads with Britney Spears and Taryn Manning. The movie sucked, but it was a rite of passage for anyone that grew up in the 2000’s.

Drumline followed this, where she again showed off her dancing abilities.

For me, I lost track of her and it wasn’t until she appeared in Star Trek that she resurfaced.  Great movie!

Her most notable role is Neytiri, an Avatar. The movie was amazing and full of cinematography firsts.

Since this, she’s been in Guardians of the Galaxy, which is a hilarious film about a band of misfits that are thrown together and make history errr….save history from destruction.  Great soundtrack as well!

Apparently she is working on 7 upcoming projects, can’t wait to see what’s in store.

Y is for Yael

Okay you may not recognize the name, but if you watch the hit show Orange is the New Black, then you’ll know who she is…

She plays the on and off again girlfriend of Natasha Lyonne and dreams of the fifties style life. She’s quirky, witty, and a bit psycho, but that’s we I love her so much.

Who’s your favorite ONB character?

X is for????

i got nothing!! Does Xena count? 

  

W is for Woody and Will

Just a few of my favorite movies!!




V is for Vince and Viola

If you haven’t guess from the title I am talking about Vince Vaughn and Viola Davis. They are bother very talented actors. Vince does mostley comedy and Viola mostly darama. Both have gained alot of popularity over the last twnenty years. Here are just a few of my favorites.

Four Christmass:

Fred Clause

The Internship

The Help

Won’t Back Down

How to Get Away with Murder, prime time show…..

U is for UMA!!!

The first movie I remember seeing her in was Pulp Fiction, I previously posted the dance scene between John Travolta and her, which is one of the iconic scenes of the movie. Check it out!

GATTACA was the next film I enjoyed with her as the leading lady! It’s one of those great films that deal with the future in respects to one’s DNA.

It’s a great film.

Next she kicks butts and leaves little to the imagination in her hit action films as Beatrix Kiddo….or The Bride, in Kill Bill 1 & 2. They are working on a third installment, I bet if trumps the other two with gore!

And she can dance and sing too!! The Producers was a hilarious film.

She can play anything thrown at her.

What’s your favorite?

Frankenstein Review

Wow, so I just finished Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and now wonder why I was afraid to read this book. Okay I listened to it, but still.

It’s nothing like the movies portray. You know the Mad Scientist piecing together a man in a hug dark mansion alone. Nope, didn’t happen. I love she insinuated how he looked without going into great detail. She was more interested in evoking a feeling and I have to admit she nailed. It.

I feel bad for the monster Frankenstein created. It’s not his fault that he is hideous or that he is even alive. It’s his creators fault. Not saying that eh killings were justifiable, but I can see how this can lead t intense anger.

What did you think of it?
