“Oz” and other thoughts

I took my niece and nephew to see Oz The Great and Powerful last weekend. They loved it. (But they also chose watching Larry the Cable Guy’s Tooth Fairy 2 over getting donuts, so their judgment is suspect.) I did not love the movie, for a number of reasons. One of the reasons was that […]

I love it so much I can’t even decide on a favorite quote to use as a title to this post

The website Splitsider has a blog series called The Finally Screenings in which a writer finally gets around to watching one of those movies everyone has got to see to be a real person. (You know, the ones you’re ashamed to admit you haven’t seen? Like me and the original Star Wars?*) And then the […]

A Christmas Story

Eleventh in a new blog series I’m calling “The 12 Posts of Christmas.” I completely ran out of steam by the seventh (okay, sixth) post, but thanks to Andy Rooney, I’m keepin’ on. Are we all ready for the annual 24-hour A Christmas Story marathon? Here are some fun facts to keep in mind as you watch […]

Santa Claus

Sixth in a new blog series I’m calling “The 12 Posts of Christmas.” Clever, right? I’m probably the only blogger with this type of blog series this month. Actually, I’m just low on inspiration and thought it would be easy to come up with multiple posts regarding Christmas. I may, however, get bored of this before […]

MLIDTMTBD

There’s a new tumblr called My Life is Lost. I’m not completely clear on what tumblr is, but MLIL is made up of short stories submitted by people to show how their life has been consumed by Lost.  My favorite example is this conversation, overheard at Penn Station in New York: “Girl #1: This whole […]

Toy Story 3

Apparently some feminists have their panties in a twist. It seems they found Toy Story 3 to be sexist.* To discuss the ridiculousness of their charge, I’m going to have to discuss the movie, so mild spoilers are ahead. A major complaint is the lack of female characters. I can’t really argue with the fact that […]

Movie Stuff

It’s Friday, so I’ll give you guys a break from my boring ramblings, but I thought I would share these fun movie links with you. This is a movie test. I got a better score than Todd, but not by much. It was pretty embarassing. Please share your scores in the comments so I can either […]

Here I am Hollywood

The news recently came out that a movie is being developed for Reese Witherspoon based on The Pioneer Woman’s blog, specifically the part about how she met her husband. I am very happy for my fellow blogger, but I have to admit that I am a bit jealous. See, I feel like if any blogger’s […]

Cindel & Wicket, kind of lame

Actually Not That Great – The Battle for Endor You know how when you’re young things appear a certain way, and then you get older and realize they aren’t that way at all? Like, how the roller coaster at Joyland was huge and scary, but really the only scary thing about it was the likelihood […]
