Meh.

Can I just tell you how glad I am that the Olympics are over? ALL my shows have been on “hiatus” which has forced me to watch a million movies in 2 weeks! I mean I am ok with that but I was most definitely scraping the bottom of the barrel…. HAHA! Well, without Matt on the weekends movies are the cheapest activity for ONE! So I thought I would share with you just a few of the movies I have seen lately On Demand and in the Theater!

Paranoia

Would you believe this movie I rented On Demand last night actually and this was the best of the bunch.?? I thought they rushed the ending which was a little jumbled but I enjoyed this movie…it kept my attention for sure. This movie is about Tech, Spying, The 1% and how incredibly good looking Liam Hemsworth is in the movie! This movie was a good renter! Have you seen it yet?

 Pompeii
I love a good disaster film, I guess I am a bit like a guy in that I love a big budget action movie! I wasn’t “waiting” to see this movie when it came out but I saw this movie Friday as a matinee and I enjoyed it! This was like combining “The Day After Tomorrow” with “Gladiator” and it worked for me! I was drawn to this film because the lead Kit Harrington stars in Game of Thrones and he is so likable. This movie is probably a renter for most but I enjoyed it!

Vampire Academy
I have not read these books shockingly so I don’t have that background to go off of but hey, Vampire Movie…..I’m in! This was a cute Teen Vampire film, was it the next Twilight? Of course not. It had all the perfect components: Good Looking Cast, Vampires, Rich Kids, Love, Blood and a witty leading lady! My recommendation…..This will be a great renter, an enjoyable mindless evening of movie watching! I am betting these books are good though!

Winter’s Tale

So I have to say that lately my mind has been so full with my life lately that it has been harder for me to let go and love a movie ….. so that may have had something to do with this review. 

When I saw this preview a few months ago I knew I had to see it, it made me swoon. Now did the movie make me swoon? No. This movie was literally chopped together the first hour filled with the love story of the past, a lot of build up AND then……present day. It was as if they changed gears too much and the last hour was filled with the lead guy (Colin) trying to save a dying girl. To me this was less love more…….I am not sure. I was really disappointed in this movie the actors were completely “under-used”. Wait to watch this on DVD.

House of Cards

I have also spent these 2 weeks watching the entire first season of House of Cards with Kevin Spacey. I don’t have Netflicks (although I need to now) so I bought this on DVD and gave it a go. This is a political series about basically how people will do anything to benefit themselves and I don’t doubt things like this happen all the time. I enjoyed this series and I will absolutely watch Season 2 (which is out now). I did think this series had a slow build up, maybe not enough “bang” in each episode for it to truly hook me. But, the way the season ended….I absolutely need to know what is going to happen next!!! Have you watched this???

Thankfully my shows are back this week along with the premiere of the Americans! YAY!!!

    I am ready for my regular shows to be back too! I have never seen "The Americans" until I saw it advertised before what seemed like every movie the past several weeks. It has the guy from Brothers and Sisters I love and of course Keri Russell. Is this the first season or has it been around a while? Have not seen any of the above movies. Wanted to see Winter's Take and Vampire Academy though. I have Netflix and tried to watch House of Cards, it was just wasn't for me.
