I Caught Up On Some Movies…

Spent some time on planes recently and for me, long distance flights are an opportunity to catch up on movies I otherwise wouldn’t have gone out of my way to. Here are my thoughts on them. Southpaw I watched this movie and wondered why I didn’t hear or see any unending reviews for this movie […]

My thoughts on Entourage – The Movie

  Who woulda thunk that one of the best shows to debut this fall is actually not on TV? Yup. You read right. “Serial” is a weekly podcast that will be aired (as a serial) for 13 weeks. It’s the first of it’s kind. Kinda like a spin off from the popular podcast “This American […]

My thoughts on “Gone Girl”

Unless you have been under a rock, you have probably heard about the movie “Gone Girl”. Every critic and their mama have been raving about it. I am one of those who read the book written by Gillian Flynn (who also wrote the screenplay) and I loved the book. I thought it was very original, […]

My Guilty Pleasure – Chasing Life

  The last time I got invested in an ABC Family show, I hated myself for it. It was the show that launched Shailene Woodley’s career – The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Gosh, that show made me hate myself. I vowed to stay away from any ABC Family show after that. Then I […]

My thoughts on “Life Itself”

I love(d) Roger Ebert. I really did. One day his twitter account announced his cancer had returned and next thing they tell us he had passed away. It was truly sad. He was the only critic whose reviews I looked out for. In fact, since he passed away, I can’t say there’s a particular review […]

My Guilty Pleasure – Little Women:LA

My thoughts on the movie “Chef”

I heard about this movie sometime last year when it premiered at SXSW and also when Jon Favreau plugged it in a quick fire challenge on the cooking show “Top Chef”. I like Jon Favreau and it piqued enough interest in me. The movie is about a workaholic chef, Karl Casper (Favreau) who is fired […]
