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!!

Fun Fridays~~~

Today marks two weeks since I hit upload on my novel. Woot…Sales are stead at 1-2 a day and steady.  I cound this a victory. It’s a hard business to break through the reader barrier. So we shall see.

But I wanted to step away from business and discuss fun! We all need a break right? Here are just a few Jimmy Fallon Lip Sync battles to break up the monotonous of your day!

And BOOM Harry Potter can rap!!!

W is for Woody and Will

Just a few of my favorite movies!!

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?

P is for Paul

I’m referring to the comedic Paul Rudd.

“As If” if that doesn’t give you a hint, then you didn’t grow up in the 90’s.

I have probably watched this movie, oh about a thousand times or more.

He is one busy actor, appear and acting all over the place. I didn’t even recognize him in Romeo and Juliet. Did you?

He plays the guy Juliet’s parents want her to marry.

Flash Forward to the mid 2000’s, he made two great films. Our Idiot Brother and Wanderlust.

But my all time favorite film of his is This is 40! Hilarious film.

O is for Owen and Orlando

Just from the title I bet you know who I am talking about. If not, I’ll give you a hint….

The Haunting…

When I first saw this movie, I wasn’t sold that is was strictly a stray film, to it seemed more like a mystery. But then people started dying. I know he was in several previous movies, but this was my recollection of him. Then I saw Meet the Parents where he played the ex-boyfriend…HILARIOUS!

But two of my favorite roles are when he plays Jedidiah, a tiny cowboy with big dreams in the Night at the Museum movies, and John, he husband in Marley in me. I love, love, love that movie. What about you? I wanted to right out and buy a yellow lab.

Can’t wait to see what he plays next!!

Then we have Mr. Orlando Bloom, whose most notably remembered for his performances in The Lord of The Rings Trilogy as well as The Hobbit Triology.  He plays an elf so damn well. Do you agree?

M is for…Melissa and Molly

So M is for Melissa and Molly.

Okay technically speaking it’s Molly then Melissa.

So I’m talking about two of my favorite actresses, Molly Ringwald and Melissa Mcarthy.

Both of these ladies are phenomenal actress- side note did you know that Molly Ringwald has an album?

Okay so Molly was a 1980’s icon with movies like Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles, but her most notable claim to fame would be her role as a snooty preppy chick in The Breakfast Club. This movie is AWESOME!! I watch it every time it’s on TNT. There have been talks about remaking the film, but that’s all I hope they are, this movie is a serious cult classic.

She also played for several season’s opposite of Shailene Woodley, Tris from Divergent, The True Life of and American Teenager which aired on ABC Family.

Then we have the great comedian Melissa Mcarthy.

Unbeknownst to me, I’d been watching her all through my high school career, because she played Sookie on Gilmore Girls. How awesome is that?

For me it was Bridesmaids and Identity Theft that left me wanting more comedic performances by her.

What’s your favorite movie by these ladies?

Stepping away from A to Z blog for a second

Stepping away from A to Z blog for a second to write about something that I recently watched and it moved me.

Now I know many of you think that John Oliver’s, Last Week …show on HBO is merely a comedy sketch, but it’s so much more that. It’s very informative, like John Stewart’s The Daily Show. They poke fun at the hypocrisy of America and our idiocracy. I mean as American’s we have a very bad image.

Let me break it down for you. We are the Justin Beiber’s as far as the world’s concerned. People are so uninformed. So read this blog, repost so we can get educated!

Okay so last week, Mr. Oliver sat down with Edward Snowden. You know who he is right?

No he’s not the Wikileaks guy, this is the guy who released a lot of NSA information to prove a point.

Essentially the government is able to gather a TON of information about its own people and store it. Now it’s one thing to spy on other countries that may have it in for us, but our own people. Why? So you can expose “the truth” later. They save phone calls, pictures sent on your phone, or even you person al computer. They are essentially The Capital, from The Hunger Games. So if you think I am not making any

Consider yourself warned.

K is for Kevin

Okay so who doesn’t love Kevin. If you don’t know already I’m referring to Kevin Spacey. He’s one of my all-time favorites.  He’s been acting since the late 1980’s, but I didn’t know of him until the great film of American Beauty. His acting in this film was AMAZING!! If you haven’t seen it, you should. Your mind will be blown.

Then he was in Pay it Forward as the awesome teacher, I wish I had. Even though this movie was super sad, it still struck a nerve.

This move has Helen Hunt and the great kid actor, Haley Joel Osment, you know the kid from The Sixth Sense.

The next film that threw me for a loop was The Life of David Gale. I actually watched this movie in college for one of my Criminal Justice class. It shows the downfall of our judicial system. Plus it stars Kate Winslet.

Then we have him playing the villainous Lex Luther in Superman Returns.

And this role makes me think he decided to be the bad guy for a change. I mean he ruins Christmas in Fred Claus! He gives the Grinch a run for his money.

The next film I enjoyed was his role in Horrible Bosses and Horrible Bosses 2.

Can’t wait to see what’s next for him.

Ginger and Goldie

This blog focuses on two amazing actresses whose name begin with G, yes I am talking about the infamous Ginger Rogers and Goldie Hawn. Both of the women have paved the way by doing things their own way. For Ginger, working opposite Fred Astaire and mastering, if not topping, his tapping skills and Goldie becoming one of the funniest women on screen.

Here are few of my favorite Goldie movies!!!

Stay tuned for tomorrows pick!
