It’s my last post for the A-Z Challenge (Katie will be taking on Z tomorrow) and I bring to you the Brat Pack’s version of a western: Young Guns and Young Guns II. When the first Young Guns came out, I was an excited pre-teen. Just look at the cast–it’s an 80s teeny-bopper fantasy: Emilio … Continue reading
When Harry Met Sally… is one of my top five favorite movies of all time. The coupling of Rob Reiner’s direction with Nora Ephron’s script might be one of the most romantic—and funniest—match-ups to occur in Hollywood. Add the perfect comedic timing of Billy Crystal as Harry and adorable, former America’s Sweetheart Meg Ryan and … Continue reading
This is going to be one of the shortest blog posts you will ever read on here. But if you’re visiting from the challenge, I’m sure you appreciate that! Today’s U topic is Up, as in the movie Up from Pixar. One of the best family movies to have come out in the past few … Continue reading
Anyone who knows me knows I adore Rick Springfield. And by adore I mean love. And by love I mean obsessively devoted to. It began when I was about six and my Aunt Linda let me watch one of his performances on TV. After that I was hooked. I wore out my Working Class Dog … Continue reading
Jerry Maguire is my least favorite Cameron Crowe movie, but overall it’s not a terrible film. Although, honestly, I think without Ray (Jonathan Lipnicki), Dorothy’s (Renee Zellweger) son, and Rod (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), this would probably be a forgettable movie. Much of the dialogue seemed forced and Renee Zellweger’s character was awfully weak. I also … Continue reading
Today’s O topic addresses One Hit Wonders, particularly from the 80s. You know, those musical acts that achieved fame with one great hit, but failed to follow-up with anything else significant enough to give them staying power. Still, these are the songs (and artists) that most of us probably remember fondly and, unless I’m the … Continue reading
I love football. Really, really love football. Not because I like to watch 300lb men jump all over each other, or because many of the tight ends live up to their name (though that’s certainly a plus). I love the game itself. The thrill when you’re team is on top, the bitter taste of defeat … Continue reading
When The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins first became “the book” to read, I refused to buy into the hype. Not just because it was so overhyped, but because by then I had given up on dystopian and post-apocalyptic entertainment. It is just too depressing. Unless there are zombies, because, well, I love zombies. I … Continue reading
I was having a hard time coming up with an entertainment-related I word, until I was chauffeuring the kids around the other day and listening to my iPod. They Might Be Giants came on singing “Istanbul” and the kids immmediately launched into song. Duh. I have to do Istanbul! It’s actually an old song that … Continue reading
They just don’t make ‘em like they used to. Soap Operas, that is. From as long as I can remember, I watched soaps with the ladies in my family. Typically, we watched the ones on ABC—All My Children, One Life to Live, and my favorite—General Hospital. In high school, I stopped watching AMC (I got … Continue reading
