(500) Days of Summer (2009) - Movie Review

(500) DAYS OF SUMMER is so absolutely adorable that, as the ending credits were rolling, I had the overwhelming urge to wrap my arms around the movie and never let it go.  It was so precious and utterly enjoyable that I wish its fast 96 minutes had been 500.  I could never get enough of this delightful tale.  When the DVD comes out, I hope it's chock full of deleted scenes.  Although I usually never watch them on DVDs, I want to see every minute possible of this wonderful film.

It's hard to know where to begin in describing one of the best -- and quite possible the best -- film of the year.  From the very beginning you know the movie will be something special, as it opens with one of the funniest textual introductions I can remember.  After that, the frequent narrator carefully sets the stage for us, by explaining, "This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know up front that it isn't a love story."

Missing Missy - The Lost Cat (repost of missing website)

Missing Missy went missing - I guess the website got too many hits and they had to take it down. Here's a repost for your kitty loving/hating pleasure. And here's one of the comments "corrected" with cat appropriately replaced with designer: I am extremely emotional over this and was up all night in tears, I mean, that poor designer... I am not a big fan of designers. I do not hate them, I just have no interest in them whatsoever. If I visit your house, I do not want to pat your designer, sit on the couch where it has been or have you make me a sandwich after patting it. I didn't want...

Being new at this

Makaila Evans Blog Image - FLiXER
So as you are guessing I am totally new at this. But I will learn. For all typos could know is I'm some girl who is sophisticated, but in reality I'm wild and shy. I have quite the character when it comes to drama. I am very artistic and love to draw. So enough about me this blog will have a lot about the different movies I watch and other stuff like that. I will be posting a weekly picture of something I like and I will do a description of a movie I watched. So this picture is from "Doctor Who". I had gotten addicted to this show. I watch all the modern seasons up until season 7 episode 6...

Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day (2009) - Movie Review

Review Poster Image - FLiXER - 10/04/2014 - 10:24am
Round two for Troy Duffy. Taking place right after the first, they didn't even have time to spend the $26K the first movie grossed. Somebody, somewhere is hoping it'll make more this time, but with 65 theaters, I don't know. Michael Jackson is the big elephant man this weekend, but those 3400 theaters are gonna be less full than Sony has deluded themselves to believe. If you like your movies Irish, then welcome the brothers Connor (Sean Patrick Flannery) and Murphy (Norman Reedus) McManus, now actually in Ireland from their usual Boston digs. Hiding out does that to ya, but I won...
