    Top Ten Tuesday – Summer Flicks

    That are completely lacking in substance or meaning because sometimes one just needs to take a break and lounge in a little vapid naivety. A look back at the fresh-faced teen queens and heartthrobs of my youth in some of their most forgettable roles, enjoy 🙂 Can’t Hardly Wait – Starring Jennifer Love Hewitt circa the Neutrogena days and a whole host of other actors that we didn’t care about. It’s basically a movie about a group of high school kids at a graduation party. Hewitt gets dumped by her meathead boyfriend which creates an opening for the creepy nerd to declare his love for her. All of the high…

    5 Movies I’ve Never Seen

    I have been on a YouTube cleanse, meaning I consciously unplugged from watching it because drama. I feel that everyone just runs a drama channel these days, I don’t need fake drama – I can watch the fucking news. Although, slow clap for Kim Jong Un for being willing to talk about relinquishing nuclear weapons (still a fascist). I mean, how is it that such a tyrant is less of a demagogue than The 45!? Anyway, I think it’s hysterical that Tati, who has vlogged her Botox procedures releases a dietary supplement for skin, hair and nails. I mean, I feel that she could have guessed that there would be some…

    Guilty Pleasures Tag

    Apparently this tag is for moms, which I’m not nor do I ever plan to be so forgive me. Also, I don’t think that one should feel guilty about things that bring them happiness – actually, scratch that, there are some things. Anyway, I thought that this would be a fun one to do for a little added variety! Neil Diamond! Such class, such style, such cheeseball showmanship. I discovered Neil in high school, I was already an odd kid so this didn’t help but his music always cheers me up and reminds me of my youth. I actually went to see him by myself and I treat it like my dirtiest…

    V-Day Watch List

    Eek! So, this post might look familiar and it is because I posted this last February. I am not crazy about re-using old posts but when I sat down to start talking about my fave romantic comedies, the list hasn’t changed! Sleepless in Seattle – We all knew this one would be on here, I went through a phase where I was watching this on repeat and then it was removed from Netflix 🙁 (Since it was removed from Netflix, I got a copy of the blu-ray) I took this as a personal affront to my emotional well-being (still true). Sam and Jonah are the sweetest father/son duo who just lost…

    Fave Rom-Com Leading Gents

    We all knew this was coming, right?  I am just in a V-day mood, we busted out the decor this weekend and even though we don’t actually celebrate the holiday I re-watched all of my favourite movies. Admittedly, this list is a bit shorter but it seems that men don’t often reprise these types of roles like the ladies do but here they are! Tom Hanks – He is a legit American treasure, only someone so pure and kind could make you bawl your eyes out when a 13 year old boy and middle-aged woman’s relationship comes to a bitter end. I mean, the whole premise of that relationship in Big…

    Fave Rom-Com Leading Ladies

    Feel free to punch me straight in the face for using Rom-Com, blame it on a pretentious former co-worker of mine who turned me onto this asinine abbreviation for something equally asinine – the romantic comedy. Not being a particularly warm and fuzzy person, I watch my fair share of these sappy, wildly unrealistic, light on plot romps and I tend to enjoy them – I cannot explain it. I mean, they generally make you feel like your own love life is inadequate and that few people find their fairy tale ending but all of that aside, I still watch ’em. Part of the reason that I subject myself to this…

    On the 3rd Day of Blogmas – Holiday Movies

    Holiday movies are definitely one thing that I would loosely consider a yearly tradition in my household. I watch them while I am decorating, wrapping presents, baking, doing absolutely nothing – here are the movies on my must watch list! A Charlie Brown Christmas – Charlie Brown is feeling a little down and is unable to find the true-meaning of Christmas in the actions of his peers and surroundings. He decides to direct the annual Christmas play to cure his holiday blues. You know it’s going to be a disaster and it starts out that way but by the end, the kids are able to discover the true meaning of Christmas…

    31 Nights of Horror – Halloween

    Ah yes, the coupe de grace, the final reckoning, the piece de resistance – John Carpenter’s 1978/81 slasher flicks, Halloween Parts I and II. 6-year-old Michael Myers murders his sister and is committed to a psychiatric hospital. Fifteen years late on Halloween Eve, Michael escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, Illinois to give the locals a Samhain that they will never forget. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) drops a key off at the Michael’s childhood home provoking his stalking her for the remainder of the day. She sees him while walking home with her two friends, Annie and Lynda but they convince her that is’t nothing to worry about. Meanwhile, Dr.…

    31 Nights of Horror – Hellraiser

    This movie is absolutely disgusting but definitely a must see for any horror junkie. Clive Barker’s body horror from 1987 brings to life all of my childhood fears of the beings that inhabit the depths of Hell. Frank Cotton purchases a puzzle box knowing that if solved, would open a gate to another dimension filled with unimaginable horrors and carnality. He is a total sleazebag who has exhausted the pleasures of the flesh that are available to him in the mortal realm and is seeking something more. Frank solves the box and dies shortly after in an attic that looks like a drug den. Cut to the living, Larry (Frank’s…

    31 Nights of Horror – The Hitcher

    This movie is relentless and kinda’ hard to watch as it just goes on and on with no end in sight. Jim Halsey is on a cross-country trek to San Diego when he picks up a hitchhiker in a torrential downpour. The hitcher, John Ryder, isn’t the friendliest guy and starts to say odd things and claims that he killed the driver of an abandoned car that they pass. Jim starts to worry that he has made a mistake and takes the opportunity to shove John out of the car. It seems as though Jim has dodged a bullet but he is soon overtaken by a car with a family…
