Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter X

11 Jul

Stewart here…

My NerdLush boss and I had a bizarre quandary to solve: an X-titled film none of us have seen.  There is the X-Men movies, the X-Files movies, heck, even the xXx movies that we have seen.  On the latter end, I was almost ready to bite the bullet and see the new xXx film for here (I ultimately did for a future post in my own blog, but that’s a story for another time), until I realized there is one X-titled movie I know neither of us have seen, but as I asked politely to fill in, I’ll talk about it.  And no, it is not Xanadu (I got hard lines in the sand I refuse to cross, and that’s one).  That movie is the recent horror anthology XX!

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter W

3 Jul

Finally back… I’m losing steam on this as we get to end of the alphabet but I AM GOING TO FINISH! For W I finally sat down to watch Warm Bodies which has sat on my shelf since it came out years ago.

Dusting Off the Shelf: Letter V

26 Jun

My planned V film was a miss because it turned out I had already seen it. But completely forgotten. So… I’ve been hunting for a replacement. Netflix hooked me up with Vampire Academy, but it took a few attempts to watch the whole thing… So I’m finally back, and ready to tell you all about it!

A Not-A-Review Review of Wonder Woman

6 Jun

This is not a review. I have to start out with that because I am not a film critic, at least no more than the next Average Joe, nor am I qualified to review a film by talking about the elements that were done to create it. What this is is a collection of the thoughts I had while watching Wonder Woman and afterwards. The simplest way to describe my reaction is this- I loved it. Stop now if you haven’t seen the film as I cannot be held responsible for any spoilers found herein.

Dusting Off the Shelf: Letter T

22 May

Me again. How’s things? I actually didn’t have a lot of T’s in my collection, but I’ve got one that I’ve owned for almost a decade but never bothered to watch because… honestly, I don’t remember why. I know I wanted to see it in the theater but when it came out I was in the middle of cramming all the courses ever in order to finish my bachelors… anyways, it’s sat on my shelf and today I broke down and finally watched Tristan & Isolde.

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter S

19 May

I’m a bit late with this one… sorry about that but I got caught up in Netflix. I’m back, though, and this week I decided it was time for something ridiculous- Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse!

Some thoughts on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2!

9 May


Stewart here…

(Major SPOILERS coming up, but first, some less spoiler-ish thoughts…)

Marking the second movie in a month where Vin Diesel is in it, as well as Kurt Russell, and with the big subject of “family”, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has finally arrived!  The first movie was a surprise to lot of filmgoers and critics who didn’t know from early previews what to make of this bizarre comic book sci-fi action movie, and with its equally shocking success, it seemed inevitable a sequel would be coming our way.  Written and directed again by James Gunn, was this sequel going to live up to the original?  The short answer is: yes.  The longer answer is: well, keep reading… Continue reading

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter R

6 May

I’m back. Did you miss me? I had to take a break because I had no Q’s! But our Stewart helped out. And I laughed so hard at the review he shared. Anyways, I had a few R’s to choose from but I was in a mood today and chose Rise of the Guardians.

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter Q

30 Apr

Stewart here…

As our boss has no films that start with the letter “Q”, she asked me to find a “Q” movie worth talking about.  We could’ve gone with Quest For Fire, or even Quantum of Solace.  Instead, I’ll be talking about something more up this blog’s alley: a giant monster movie!  And its the 1982 monster movie: Q, The Winged Serpent!
