'Mockingjay' Takes Katniss to the Heights of Leadership

I probably don't have to remind you that Mockingjay, Part 1, opens this weekend. You are either more than ready for this third film in The Hunger Games adaptations (in which case you've probably already purchased your ticket), or you just aren't into The Hunger Games.  ...more
Yes! I love these movies so much! I already look forward to seeing Mockingjay again (just saw it ...more

RIP 'Selfie:' Are TV's Rom-Coms an Endangered Species?

I’ve felt a burning desire to re-watch The Office, or at least its second season, lately. I’ll give you two guesses why. If you guessed Jim and/or Pam, you’re absolutely right. ...more
WhitneyD Interesting perspective, Whitney. I've certainly heard that in terms of Sci-Fi shows, ...more

Oh My! The Day I Met George Takei

November 3, 2014 will go down in history for me. It was the day that I met George Takei—in person, shook his hand, and took a picture with him. I was on the phone with my grandmother while heading to the T station when I saw him. I immediately told my grandmother that I would have to call her back and ran after him as he went inside the building. My heart was beating 100 miles an hour and I was trying really hard not be a crazy fan girl....more
I love his facebook posts! Seeing him in the old Star Trek is still great to see. Love him!!more

The 'Burbs

I know I’ve already done a very special movie this month, but The ‘Burbs is on Netflix and I just love it. If you haven’t seen this movie then go check it out now. Tom Hanks plays a burnt-out suburbanite staycationer whose neighbor manages to convince him that the new family on the cul-de-sac are murderers. Much to the chagrin of Tom’s wife (in this case, Carrie Fisher) he and a few of the guys from the neighborhood (Bruce Dern and Rick Ducommun) decide to conduct their own guerrilla-style investigation of the new family and their creepy basement....more

Guardians of The Galaxy - Movie Review

This past weekend the Husband and I went to see the movie Guardians of the Galaxy. I had read good reviews about it and I thought to myself it's a Sci-fi/super hero movie, so I'll probably like it. What I did not expect was to enjoy it that much! I haven't stopped playing parts of the movie in my head. Before I get into why I liked it so much, let me tell you a little about the story....more

The Giver - Movie Review

Last night the Husband and I went to see The Giver at the movies. I am going to start by saying that I have not read the book. Therefore my opinion concerns the movie exclusively and not the adaptation from the book to the big screen....more

Family Ties: Rain Forests Keep Fallin’ on My Head

First of all, isn’t rainforest one word? Secondly, it’s really cool that youngest child Jennifer wants to rid the family home of 80’s toxins. This was before we removed formaldehyde from our hair conditioners, people! But she doesn’t know how to accurately dispose of any of the waste.She forces Mallory to stop using her conditioner. The results are not pretty....more

21 Jump Street: 2245

This episode starts off like a slasher movie. It’s a prison break, but it looks like a horror film version of a prison break. A picture is worth a thousand words so:...more

Moments of Pride and Prejudice: A Study in Gifs

Taking A Short Day for Mockingjay: The Hunger Games Trilogy

November 20, 2014 Busy day today! I’m trying to zip through as many tasks as I can this morning, because I’m taking the rest of the afternoon off! Why am I being so decadent on a Thursday, you ask? Cause I’m going to see The Hunger Games Trilogy in the theatres! ...more

Good/Bad TV Shows. Let's Talk!

I love television shows.  I’m a sucker for them.  Sometimes I spend hours watching a show and start to wonder why I’m not out living my own life.  I just love them so much.There’s something just so relaxing and feel-good about watching different recreations of alternate realities.  In some circumstances, I can connect with a character so much that I can’t help but wonder what will happen next in their exciting, make-believe life....more
