Premiere Particulars: Bates Motel

Alright! Who’s ready to check back into A&E’s Bates Motel? I can tell you that this girl was definitely ready for the season three kickoff after a strong second season (and you can read about that premiere here). When we last left Norman, he was barely scraping out of a jam and acting a little crazy…but, hey, what else is new? Continue reading

Captain America: The Winter Soldier: Marvel’s Phase Two is going strong

I realize at this point they’ve become as overdone as zombies and vampires, but I freaking love superhero movies. When one is on its way to theaters, I inevitably round up a group of nerdy friends and make a midnight trek to see it—because God forbid we wait until the day it comes out. We simply must see it before the rest of the world. Plus, midnight superhero movie premieres make for excellent people-watching. At this premiere, I got to see an overweight couple dressed as Captain America and Black Widow. And in case you were wondering, yes—people did take pictures with them. God bless nerds. God bless (Captain) America.

Genre Grandeur – Inception (2010)

The awesome Mr. MovieRob recently sent out a request for reviews for his cool new series, Genre Grandeur. The series will hone in on the best of the best in a different genre each month, but the focus for March is thrillers. Naturally, I couldn’t resist writing up a little something about Inception. Check it out! Also, Rob is accepting reviews through the 25th, so definitely take some time to write about your favorite thriller and send it his way!

For my next Genre Grandeur guest review, I present you with a review by Cara from Silver Screen Serenade.  Cara has a great blog and whats more, she has great ideas for blogathons.  Her Nooovember and Resolutions posts were amazing.  Check out her site if you don’t already.

Here’s a review of Cara’s favorite Thriller – Inception (2010).

Take it away Cara….

“You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” – Eames

 Number of Times Seen – Not totally sure. I know I saw it in theaters three times. All in all, this was my sixth or seventh viewing at the very least.

Brief Synopsis – “A skilled extractor is offered a chance to regain his old life as payment for a task considered to be impossible.” (from IMDb)

My Take On It – I said it after my first viewing and I’m still saying…

Premiere Particulars: Bates Motel

Between two posts about Hannibal and now this, I am just all kinds of macabre lately! I promise I do not exist solely on a diet of TV shows about murderers. That just seems to be the way things are lately. Anyway, I had hoped to get a review of season one of Bates Motel out before the season two premiere last night, but I didn’t manage to swing it.

Hannibal: a television delicacy

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. Continue reading
