In those rare occasions that both my husband and I have a Saturday afternoon off, we tend to watch a movie together, that we have not had a chance to see at the theater. This week we finally managed to see “Grudge Match”, a film starring Sylvester Stallone (Razor) and Robert De Niro (The Kid) …Continue reading "Grudge Match – A Film Review"
First thought of the movie, and the most prevailing one throughout it for me: Why in the hell did they kill off Channing Tatum within the first 10 minutes of the film? Now that was one big disappointment, considering that another character (Flint) would not have been missed at all, while Channing’s character Duke was …Continue reading "G.I.Joe – Retaliation (Review)"

Wigs has brought forth a few short films on their channel (available to stream on their channel as well as their YouTube Channel). “Serena” is one of these creations, masterfully done, staring …Continue reading "Serena – A Short Film (Review)"

And then …Continue reading "P Is For Pieces"
I was reluctant to watch this movie, because of its lack of box office success (175 million gross) and mediocre press, and the controversy that followed, with the producer, Jerry Brockheimer, the co-lead actor, Armie Hammer, and the director Gore Verbinski accusing critiques of writing bad reviews before the movie was released to be critiqued. …Continue reading "L Is For The Lone Ranger"

Yes I know she is pregnant, not what I meant, but besides working on Avengers 2 and having a kid, she has two movies coming out shortly …Continue reading "J Is For Johanssen"
I have been contemplating since yesterday what to write for today with the letter H. All I have come up with is a hodgepodge of craziness, all which does not combine to make a great blog post, but rather are tippets and random thoughts, of no real substance. I am trying to keep this month …Continue reading "H is for Hell If I Know"
I just finished watching “Skyfall” (review posted tomorrow), when I ran across some info on the next Bond film (Number 24) and its director Sam Mendes To begin I must say, that I am happy to hear that Sam Mendes has been sought after to direct the next Bond as well. He brought back the …Continue reading "Sam Mendes, Penny Dreadful and Bond 24"
If you are a Marvel fan, or like to watch action movies, the likes of Iron Man and the Avengers, you know who I mean. For the rest of you mere Mortals, I speak of Agent Coulson of course, the Shield Agent who was the reason behind the Avengers getting their groove together, who sort-of …Continue reading "C Is For Coulson"
