“How would you feel about me taking pictures of your feet?”: Morning Glory

Mediocre romcoms. I’ve been watching a lot of those lately.  That’s almost all they make, really.  I like to think that because I love great romantic comedies so much, I’ve come to be a connoisseur.  I must wade through all the muck and mediocrity to find the truly inspiring ones. Morning Glory with Rachel McAdams. … Continue reading “How would you feel about me taking pictures of your feet?”: Morning Glory

“I’d Get Through Faster If I Were Kathy Griffin”: Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work

Super close up on Joan Rivers’ face.  Her makeup artist is applying foundation.  But before it is all the way applied you get a very personal look at a 75 year old woman’s face.  Veins and age spots galore, but oddly enough, no wrinkles.  It’s not for the faint of heart, but it’s the truth, … Continue reading “I’d Get Through Faster If I Were Kathy Griffin”: Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work

I Wouldn’t Say It Was The Worst Oscars Ever…

In remembrance of the late, great actors who hosted the 83rd Annual Academy Awards a few nights ago, I wanted to pay homage to them via movie reviews.  But then I was told, although they totally bombed a few nights ago, they are actually still alive.  I figured, in that case, let’s honor them by … Continue reading I Wouldn’t Say It Was The Worst Oscars Ever…

“You’re not an asshole, but you’re trying so hard to be”: The Social Network

I feel an almost irrepressible urge to go out and buy some pacifiers.  Jesse Eisenberg's giant pouty lips are so overwhelming in this film, I can't help but be reminded of a newborn baby when they still have that quiver thing going on with their bottom lip that just makes you want to squeeze their … Continue reading “You’re not an asshole, but you’re trying so hard to be”: The Social Network

I’m looking for a movie… Part 2

Due to the major crash of my laptop & epic slowness of this desktop, I have not been able to tolerate being on the computer long enough to write a review, so this quickie is going to have to do. Again, this is where I repeat to you what a customer asked me, and you … Continue reading I’m looking for a movie… Part 2

I’m looking for a movie… Part 1

Welcome to the premiere of "I'm looking for a movie..." This is where I repeat for you what a customer has asked for at the store.  (I would also like to thank my beautiful, lovely friend Jess for having this brilliant idea to actually turn this game I play everyday into a post.) Now, before … Continue reading I’m looking for a movie… Part 1

“Give him the kick”: Inception

I'm sure "real" movie critics have a lot of arguments against the supposed greatness of this film.  They always do.  They can suck my balls.  This movie was awesome. All I knew going into it was that everyone seemed completely mindfucked by the film, and "It's about dreams."  Well, that's helpful.  If you are still … Continue reading “Give him the kick”: Inception

Shut It Down: Knight and Day

Look at that poster.  That is one awesome movie poster.  Whew, isn't it cool? Sooooo, Knight and Day is not good.  Not at all.  Tom Cruise, in all his loco Scientologist glory, however, is really funny.  But that doesn't make this movie worth watching.  In fact, it really made me want to go watch Tropic … Continue reading Shut It Down: Knight and Day

“This isn’t a mustache; it’s a time machine”: Going the Distance

For the select few out there who care, I'm sorry I've been terribly unmotivated and have failed to write any reviews in more than a week.  Sometimes lazy wins.  Especially in winter, as I'm learning. But about this movie. Three minutes into Going the Distance, my cheeks were already sore from laughing so much.   … Continue reading “This isn’t a mustache; it’s a time machine”: Going the Distance

“I like him”: The Special Relationship

This film is only a little bit about how President Bill Clinton and Prime Minister Tony Blair both had huge man crushes on each other.  That is definitely a factor, though. The Special Relationship is an HBO film about the closer than usual relationship the two men had, how it started, and how it panned … Continue reading “I like him”: The Special Relationship
