R is for Robert

To infinity and beyond…no wait that’s Buzz Light Year.  Iron man would no doubt say something obnoxious and sarcastic like, “psssh..the moon, “ Okay this is super weak.  But you get the idea. Iron man is a complete jerk, with a big heart. That’s why Robert Downing Jr. is the perfect person to play him.

I’ll admit over the years he’s had his bad days and then super drugged haze days, but I am a firm believe that people can change. I mean the mans been acting since the 70’s!

I especially love him The Avengers, but I’m biased to Captain America.

Stepping away from his super hero persona, lets discuss his other roles. Such as the ass kicking Sherlock Holmes! I mean wow, he was pretty amazing in this role as well.

But I haven’t had a chance to check out his newest movie, The Judge. Any one see it? Is it good? It looked good.


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?

Love for Liam

I mean if I played that game I would purposely find him and befriend him. This was single handedly the best super bowl commercial ever. What do you think?

Before he was an ass kicker in Taken, Liam played a very important role as Oscar Schindler and if you don’t know who he is, then you need to invest your time in researching him. He was a business man who was able to save victims of the Holocaust from their death by employing them. There was a list made and he tracked everyone on that list down. As far as I’m concerned the Academy really screwed up by not giving him the Oscar. I mean this man was a fricken bad ass!!

Sidenote: When my girlfriend was in grade school she dressed up as Oscar Schindler for famous people day!! How cute is that?? Point to take away Oscar Schindler was an amazing human being with his flaws, but what he did for so many people was AMAZING!

Now it’s obvious that Mr. Liam continued his streak of badassness!! I mean when I went to the movies to see Taken, I never expected them to make three additional films. How cool is that? Best part of the movie ever:

This scene has gone on to spur hilarious meme’s and even a Family Guy episode. How awesome is that?

He has sense gone on to play in several action packed movies. How cool is that? He is the white version of Samuel L Jackson’s role from Pulp Fiction!! I mean if he read the bible people would listen. This is the same for Liam. They have one of those voices that demand attention and strike fear in to the heart of most people.

I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!!

Weekend in Review

Over the weekend I attended the fall celebrate and connect for my side business, Thirty One. They debuted a new product for the large utility tote. Which is AWESOME for shopping at Aldis, or any store for that matter. Then after that I attended a Tupperware party and won some awesome free merchandise. I also found a chopper or shredder thing that I really really want. So if you know anyone that wants some Tupperware, I”m hosting a party. Woot.

Other than that, I just worked on homework for the remainder of the weekend and managed to get in ten hours of sleep before the weekday began.

I also had the pleasure of watching X-men: Future Past. That one, ti was very cool to see how the incorporated actual footage and gave the JFK assassination a back story. Pretty nifty there. I am so confused about how Wolverine changed the past which affected the future. I mean Jean Grey is ALIVE how awesome is that.

So I wonder what they are going to do now?
