Prometheus (2012)

This movie.... 

I don't know where to begin. There is a deep sentimental attachment to this movie I've developed over the past couple weeks after I've seen it. Not because it moved me, or inspired me, or saw it with a significant other (or anything like that). It's just brought back memories for me. 

But not just your run-of-the-mill memories involving watching the original Alien movies, but memories involving a certain star of the film.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

In a nutshell: This was a movie that totally sucked you in. Seeing it in the theatre was how it was meant to be seen, since the graphics were stunning, and the fight scenes were epic, and the story was familiar enough that audience was comfortable with all the new twists and plot changes. In fact, I looked forward to seeing which “traditional” aspects of Snow White the filmmakers would keep and what would be new. It was a clever ploy to keep me totally enthralled in what was going on onscreen.

The Bad Mother's Handbook

So I've realized that people have actually commented on this within the past few months, and now that I have a little bit more time on my hands have decided to start writing again. I haven't stopped watching movies (obviously), but I think this time around I'm really going to take the time to refine what it is I want out of this site.

I recently watched a movie called The Bad Mother's Handbook, a British indie film from 2007 starring Catherine Tate (the woman who was Nellie Bertram on this past season of the office).
