Curious About the Will O’The Wisps in the Movie, Brave? #1 at the Box Office This Weekend!

Oscar Movie Review: Ides of March

Ryan Gosling turned in an amazing performance as a assistant campaign manager that moves from an idealistic, hopeful supporter to a cynical, jaded, and scheming blackmailer.  He says something like, "This is my life we're talking about" at one point in the movie when he is being used as a pawn.  Unfortunately, it is his life and his heart that ends up being destroyed by the political machinations of a presidential campaign. This film, Ides … [Read more...]

Oscar Movie Review: Moneyball

Aaaarrrrgghhhh!  I have a love/hate relationship with movies that leave me saying aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!  And googling questions and wishing I could talk to the writer.  Moneyball is soooo good.  But frustrating at the end!  Okay, okay, I'll start at the beginning, not the end. Brad Pitt plays the role of Billy Beane, the General Manager for the Oakland A's.  His team has a very small budget compared to teams like the New York Yankees which means … [Read more...]

Movie Review: Beauty and the Beast in 3D – Three Generations Loved It!

My mom, my daughter, and I went to see Beauty and the Beast today.  In true Disney tradition, it was magical!  Despite the fact that I've seen the movie a gazillion times, it was magical to see it in the theater and in 3D.  The familiar scenes were beautiful in three dimensions and theater projection size.  The music we all love was big and rich from theater speakers. My mom was hesitant to go and reluctantly agreed to go, just to be with us. … [Read more...]
