So if Blogiversary Bash is all about celebrating our favorite things in film/television, how could I not post something about The Princess Bride? This movie literally has something for everyone–action, adventure, young Cary Elwes, hilarity, good performances, young Cary Elwes, good dialogue, pirates, young Cary Elwes, a giant, a love story…Did I mention young Cary Elwes?

A Tribute to Christopher Lee

Hey, guys. So I’d intended to post something else today, but in the midst of work and moving to my new apartment and all of that craziness, I got a bit of a shock–the wonderful Sir Christopher Lee apparently passed away a few days ago. Really, it shouldn’t have been a shock. The man was 93 years old. Even so, he just seemed like one of those staples of movies, you know? Continue reading

Saving Mr. Banks: a Disneyfied tale of the team behind Mary Poppins

Some people might think it’s a little too sappy, but I actually enjoyed Saving Mr. Banks quite a bit. What did you guys think? Anyway, here’s my review from last year.

Silver Screen Serenade


It’s funny how the films you don’t intend to see can take you by surprise. Saving Mr. Banks was one of those films that I’d heard good things about, but I’d shrugged it off as a rental simply because it didn’t catch my interest (if I’m being honest, biographies and/or true stories rarely do).

Silver Screen Serenade


Holy cow! I have let my TV reviews slip in a big way. I got so preoccupied with my blog series, premiere episodes, and movie stuff that I haven’t done a review of a whole show since September…Whoopsie. But I’m back to it now, and I’m actually hoping to knock out several reviews of my favorite TV shows over the next few weeks.

Belated response on my part, so probably a lot of you have already seen this, but in case you missed it, I present to you the Question of the Month: Who is the best Game of Thrones character? Dragons raged, weddings were ruined, and whitewalkers swarmed, but somehow we all came up with some awesome answers.

Oracle of Film

If there is one thing Game of Thrones does better than any other show out there, is give us such a large cast, that we find you rarely have the same favourite character as the person next to you. With House, everyone’s favourite character is House. With Arrow, everyone’s favourite character is Arrow. However, with Game of Thrones, people cannot even decide who is the person in the right. Who should be the rightful heir to the throne? Is it the royal family, the Targaryens, kicked out of the throne, due to some nasty ancestors, but finally back on the straight and narrow, thanks to the awesome Daenarys? Should the Lannisters keep the throne, especially with the genuinely kind Tommen sitting on it? Or maybe the cruel, yet surprisingly honest Stannis, deserves to re-take the throne for his brother? Todya, let’s swipe the moral implications from the table and just…
