I fell in love with Guillermo del Toro’s work with his 2006 feature film Pan’s Labyrinth. It had all the layers that I, as a slightly dark and twisted individual, gravitate towards. It balanced my love of fairy tales, fantasy, magic and creepy shit into a film that made my heart flutter.
If you grew up in the 90’s it is hard not know the lyrics to hits like Baby… One More Time, “Sometimes”, “Crazy” and “Oops, I Did it Again!” There was just something about late 90’s early – 2000’s music that basically drafted you into a ‘forever cult’ of music lovers.
I recently went to Britney’s show Piece of Me while I was in Vegas. It was a fun experience but Britney has never been someone who I considered a master of vocal range. She was never a Mariah, a Christina, or an Adele. She was Britney. Britney with the catchy beat.
The lights flickered in the backroom.
I wasn’t sure if we were on the verge of a blackout or an invasion. Not like that mattered now. I returned to my room and retrieved the Colt .45 on my dresser. My dad said the .45 was a weird choice for someone like me. He expected me to get one of the new fancy ‘death rays’ that had come out last year. As much as I loved technology I didn’t trust it to protect me. My .45 was not the biggest shot but it had saved me a few dozen times. It ain’t broke.
Yesterday, the new trailer for the (3rd?) Ring franchise dropped. Absent are Naomi Watts and David Dorfman who probably signed a joint statement of “nah” when approached for another film.
Bless you both. Continue reading Kill “The Ring”
It is hard not to be shocked by a film about Nazis. The shocking part is that I end up believing the Nazis on-screen more than the leading character.
After spending our Friday afternoon at the theatre we decided to do our first podcast review, starting with the new film: Kubo and the Two Strings.
We also delved into late review/vent-fest of Batman V. Superman and talked about the difference between acting and voice acting.
Hope you enjoy!

When the title for the new Star Trek movie dropped I sighed very, very loudly.
