Friday: Saw Think Like A Man… which was one of the best romantic comedies I’ve seen in awhile. Kevin Hart is hilarious! Kept me laughing from beginning to end!
Saturday: Shopping, Grace’s Chinese Take-out, and the beginning of our April showers.
Sunday: Went to the early morning church service. Watched Mission Impossible 3: Ghost Protocol which was a decent movie, but not as great as everyone made it out to be. April showers… ALL day. Sigh…
A pic I snapped on my walk home from work
I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a life update. A few new things…
1. I got a raise! Luckily, I’ve come to realize that it does not mean that I can spend more on clothing/accessories. What it DOES mean is that I can save more for my 2013 wedding.
Plot: On the night of the discovery of a duplicate planet in the solar system, a young student headed for MIT and an accomplished composer cross paths in a tragic accident.
I’ve been ridiculously tired after work this week (my excuse for not posting). Yes, I could always type my posts in advance and schedule them to be published at certain times each day, but I like most of my material to be fresh. I’ve had plenty of topics, editorials, reviews, and inspiration boards completed that I didn’t post and have deleted, because it just seemed old and stale to me. I only like to put out what I’m currently feeling, thinking about, or adoring. Which, of course, means that I usually type things right before I post them; two days max (if something is really important to me).
If you haven’t had time to see the latest released films, but have all the time in the world now, then I think you’ll find this list pretty handy! I’ve sifted through the gems and duds for you! I’ve even got a list of what you should pass on watching. So if you’re looking for a good film for your next movie night, you may want to bookmark this!
I read the novel back in January and I… can’t… wait to see the film! Excellent book! No need for a review, just go get it and read it. You won’t be disappointed!
Plot: A man awakens from a coma after a car accident in Berlin only to find that his identity has been stolen and no one believes him, not even his wife. To prove his identity, he Continue reading
Plot: A perfect example of how you take one of Hollywood’s favorite storylines and bring something new to keep the audience guessing. Based on a true story, this film is Continue reading
I finally had the chance to see Burlesque (although very late) and it was pretty much what I thought it would be… Continue reading
Cast: Natalie Portman is already a very talented actress in my book, and honestly, one of my favorite actresses. I found out that she actually took the time to become trained in ballet for this role and I admire her dedication. Her performance didn’t disappoint me. I’m not a big fan of Mila Kunis, but I admit that she did a stellar job too. Vincent Cassel was a good choice for the film as well. And I was pleasantly surprised to see Winona Ryder who’s been making casual appearances in blockbusters lately (Star Trek anyone?)
Cinematography: Some of the camera shots and angles were just enough to give you a chill and make you anxious to know what’s going to happen next.
Overall: Captivates you until the very end! This film received such high praises from critics and I have to agree it deserved every last one of them. Though I must warn you, it may be difficult to grasp the meaning behind it all until you get to the end. Much deeper meaning than I expected. This wasn’t just the typical thriller. Very unique in presentation.
Criticism: I still had some unanswered questions once I finished watching (what’s the deal with the mother’s cake tantrum?), but luckily most of the answers could be found on the trusty imdb.com (discussion boards are key to a lot of insightful background info and theories).
Final Score: ***** 5 stars
