Noelle & Santa Bill

North Pole in Noelle

Noelle

Directed by: Marc Lawrence

I like the whole cast of Noelle and if I’m going to watch a Christmas movie it better be somewhat at the North Pole.

So no I’m not going to admit that I may have signed up for an entire streaming service just to see Bill Hader play a Santa in training. Nope. Not admitting that.

I Hope it Hurts: Doctor Sleep

Danny Torrance in Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep

Directed By: Mike Flanagan

Having not read the book I went into this movie expecting it to lean heavily on Danny Torrance and his return to the Overlook Hotel- the haunted hell hotel where the events of The Shining took place.

I was pleasantly surprised that the highlight of this movie was the war between Rose the Hat and young justice seeking Abra.

Wait what about the Movie?

Dracula

Dracula

By: Bram Stoker

Aside from over romanticized modern vampire stories my knowledge of Dracula is mostly based on the 1992 movie. Gary Oldman played Dracula. Winona and Keanu might have gotten married. Watch the movie. It’s great.

I was still a little nervous about finally picking up the novel.

It’s End of Year List Time!

the grinch

I’m trying not to think of the End of the Year looming or the end of the decade for that matter. But I do need to get some organization going so I thought I’d do the tag but make it a bit of a catch-all for books, films and television!

The tag was originally created on Youtube by Ariel Bissett.

Madness, Myth & Man in the Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

Directed By: Robert Eggers

The Lighthouse stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe as two lighthouse keepers who take a four-week shift on a small island far out into the ocean. They spend four weeks pretty much driving each other crazy only for a storm to impede the much needed shift changeover.

Then the real fun starts.

5 Great Films for Fall/Life Slumps

Screen Shot 2019-10-08 at 9.33.44 PM

Admittedly I’m in a bit of a life slump this month. So I thought I’d do another Great Falls Films that are worth a watch and (in some cases any way) brighten a mood!

I mean these are all good films to watch any time of the year but there’s something about them all that scream Fall to me.

A Ramble Through Zombieland

Zombieland Double Tap

Zombieland Double Tap

Directed By: Ruben Fleischer

Watching anything about the zombie apocalypse or any really makes you think about the universal truths of life. Like I’d find a library and a stash of chocolate and wait for the end – which would come super quick for me despite the amount of zombie stuff I watch- I also realized another universal truth for me at least.

When eating popcorn one piece at least will always go down my shirt.

Inglourious Basterds Indeed

Inglorious Basterds

Directed By: Quentin Tarantino

I did watch this film in September for my Blind Spot pick so let’s just momentarily pretend I’m the least bit consistent about posting so I don’t miss another month 🙂 As we take a stroll back to World War II through the mind of Tarantino.
