Premiere Particulars: True Detective


So I usually try to address TV premieres very soon after the original air date, but I’m a little late on this one…heck, it premiered a month ago; “late” is putting it politely. Basically, I hadn’t even heard about this show until I started seeing positive reviews for it, and now that I finally decided to check it out, here we are—four episodes in. Continue reading

The Lego Movie: everything IS awesome


I came to the realization the other day that thus far, I’m not doing so great on catching my 20 Films of 2014. Open Grave and I, Frankenstein have both premiered, and I hardly paid any attention (though in my defense I don’t think the former ever came to a local theater, and I have heard 99% dreadful things about the latter).

MovieRob’s Childhood Flashback Movie Challenge – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

MovieRob recently let me pop over for his super fun Childhood Flashback Movie Challenge. My film of choice? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, of course! Swing by and check it out. Thanks so much, Rob, for letting me partake! 😀

So things are going to be a little different today. First of all, in case the hunky man in the banner didn’t tip you off, let’s make something clear: I am not Eric Isaacs of The IPC. My name is Cara, and I run a little blog called Silver Screen Serenade, if you’d like to hop on over and check that out (cough cough shameless self-promotion hack hack ahem). Mr. Isaacs is actually tied up in my basement, pitifully crying for help–errrrrm. I mean, he’s at some ComiCon thingy playing Dungeons and Dragons or LARPing or whatever it is nerds do…Kidding, Eric. 😉 Hope you’re having a blast! Anyway, Eric has been stupidnaïve generous enough to turn his blog over to me for a day so that I may tend to comments and the like. I’m definitely not going to take advantage of…
