Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter F

7 Feb

Trying something new this week with a return to a genre style and a young adult novel turned film, The 5th Wave. I guess I could use this as a random film, but 5th starts with F and there ya go. Besides my other choice was too similar to a couple of the previous films… so I thought I’d switch it up a little.

Free Time! How should I fill it?

28 Jul

Real life is about to get a lot more boring for a little while- i.e. as I wait for my new RL job to start, I don’t have anything to do.

So I’m putting it out there to all of you… What should I do to fill up my days?

Are there shows I need to watch? Webseries?

What about books- any that you’d recommend?

Are there adventures I should look into having?

It’s been a while since I’ve had this kind of freedom and while I look forward to a few days of nothing but sleep, I’d like to keep busy.

I still love 80’s movies, part deux!

I still love 80’s movies!

16 Feb

The other day I was linked to an article that claimed 80’s movies were better than today. I agreed with every point they made and it inspired me to think about my favorite 80s movies. I thought about making a top ten list, but I really couldn’t rank the titles that I loved- my love for them changes daily. So I thought I would take a post, or two, and list out some of my favorite films from my childhood. I would love to hear some of your favorites and/or your thoughts on these films in the comments!

Is there a war on Westerns?

14 Feb

When was the last time Hollywood made a good Western? The early 90s with Unforgiven, probably. Though the two Earp movies from that time period were good too. But it’s like Hollywood lost the ability to create a Western. Which is sort of insane considering that the genre exists because Hollywood was the master of the Western for generations.

Cowboy-Up

My Latest Obsession- part 1

20 Aug

My mother would say I am easily amused. I would add to that with the admission that I am easily obsessed. Since I wrote my post reviewing Almost Human for AFC, I have been consumed by a need to see all the things done by Karl Urban. All the things. Even the terribly horribly bad ones- of course, we know I love those bad movies, so I know this surprises no one.

Not gonna lie… Karl Urban is pretty damn awesome. Continue reading
