Catching Up

Have you seen the movie Cooties, with Elijah Woods? Hilarious. Check out the trailer!!! It’s a must watch if you like the same humor as Shaun of the Dead!!

Have you watched the BBC’s Vicious with Ian Mckellan? It’s one for the books! I tell yeah, it made me laugh so much. I wish I lived in their apartment bundling!!! Never a dull moment!!!

And books….let’s see I am currently reading a book of World War 1 poetry…..it’s very enlightening and makes me angry.

What have you been up too?

Read Me!!

What to do with bad days!!!!

Ever have one of those days where nothing seems to go as planned. This is my life everyday. I can wake up in the morning and plan to sit down and write all day and BAM life decides it’s not going to happen.

So instead of being bitter (most days) I use the restructed day to my advantage and day dream. Well not really day dream, more like imagine all the ways my day could have been worse. This reminds me to be thankful.

This post is to remind everyone that it may look grim out the window of your eye, but don’t give up.
Thoughts and feelings!!!

First Impressions..

So I am sitting down to prepare myself to work on my novella series and of course I read a post on facebook about Sense8. so I decided to check it out. What a mistake!!!

Wait no, this isn’t a mistake in the traditional sense. I am so attached and the first episode isn’t even over. so I have decided that I am going to finish this episode. Then I will work out, make dinner and watch another episode and write….yes this is what I shall do.

So have you watched the show? What do you think? Like I said I am obsessed.

A to Z final thoughts

This year I focused on actors and actresses that I find entertaining. It was fun. I would like to participate in another blog challenge. Anyone know of any?

Honorable Mention:

Ellen Page, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Amy Poehler, Dakota Fanning, Julia Roberts, and the list can go on and on.

I love movies, some are good and others are bad.

Thanks for stopping by. I will resume normal blogging next week.

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?

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?

T is for Talent!

Today I am going to discuss three talented women, Tina Fey, Tilda Swinton, and Mr. Tim Burton.

Tina Fey is one of the Comedic Duo. She’s opposite of Amy Poheler. Both ladies are hilarious and are great hosts for award shows.

Mean Girls was the first movie I’d ever seen with her in it. Hilarious! She plays a math teacher!!

This was followed by Baby Mama, which was another hilarious movie.

Let’s not forget her performance in 30 Rock, I miss this show.

It’s safe to say that she is one of America’s funniest ladies.

Moving on, Tilda Swinton tends to be a more serious actress. Some of her previous roles include the arch angel, Gabriel in the movie Constantine and The White Witch in the Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.

I also have to mention director Tim Burton whose dark movies are always a nice addition to the box office.

Movies such as Big Eyes and Dark Shadows, take it’s viewer on a trip to the dark side.

I have to admit I really enjoyed his take on Alice in Wonderland, but not his Willy Wonka. I am biased to the older version.

Don’t forget his cult classics, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, and Big Fish.

Which one is your favorite???

S is for Saoirse and Scarlett

Both of these actresses are acting chameleons! They can be comedic, serious, depressing, and even mysterious. They have even taken risks which in most cases wound up in their favor in the end.

I first saw Saoirse Ronan within the hit film, The Lovely Bones. Have you seen it? It’s an equally if not more powerful book. It’s about a young girl who goes missing and it’s later discovered that she was killed by a neighbor. It brings to question the idea of life and death and the bridge that connects the two. Not to mention the cinematography skills are amazing in this film.

Then she busted outs onto the scene with the movie Hanna, which if you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s awesome, I hope they make a sequel. Also another fun fact is that the Chemical Brothers did the music for the entire film. It’s filled with action and twists and turns in the plot that leave the viewer guessing what is going to happen next.

Then she was in the movie The Host, which based off of the book written by Stephanie Meyer, you know that chick who wrote Twilight. It was a decent film, but I felt it was lacking something.

Moving on to great and talented Scarlett Johansen, seems to have been acting forever. Did you know she has a music album out?

The first movie I remember seeing her in was Lost in Translation with Bill Murray. Great movie, very interesting concept too. This was followed by The Girl with the Pearl Earring, which I do believe I saw first now that I think about it…Anywho she can play anything you throw as her.

Then she stared in a great family film entitles, We Bought a Zoo!! Amazing movie, I mean I think almost every movie Matt Damon is in is an instant his.

Then she became an instant hit with The Avengers movies, making appearances in Captain America’s films as well.

She played a controlling woman in the comedy Don Juan.

Most recently she played in this sci fi film about being able to access 100% of her brain. Lucy? It was alright…

What is your favorite film by these ladies?

N is for Natalie

Wow so my brain is so scattered today. I’m supposed to write a topic with N….and I wrote J…wow just wow.

Natalie Portman was born acting as far as I’m concerned. Her first movie was The Professional, which is about a professional hit man befriending a young girl. It’s a great film and I knew that she would later go on to do great things. Wait did I mention that she was super smart as well?


Okay flash forward a few years, she’s in two movies I could watch all day, Where the Heart Is and Anywhere but Here. Both are family, chick flick, and just easy going movies.



Then she tackled Queen Padmea in the hit movie franchise, Star Wars, the prequels. I for one thought the costumes were great, but …I’m not a Star Wars fan, I’m more of a Star Trek fan. LOL


But my favorite films entitled Black Swan. Its chuck filled with all sorts of drama, mystery, and even confusion. My girlfriend and I went to see this film and watched people walk out. I personally thought they were crazy for leaving, but I’m sure they have their reasons. I also think this is Mila Kunis’s best film too.
