You’re Next: a fox, a tiger, and a lamb break into a house…everybody dies

I know You’re Next might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I pretty much love it–especially for kickass Aussie Erin. I’m taking the time to revisit it today with my review from 2013. If you’re curious about it, go and have a little looksee!

Silver Screen Serenade

Happy Friday, you lovely readers, you! I hope that your day has been splendid thus far and that your weekend promises to be equally awesome.

Well, if I’m being honest, it occurred to me that though I’ve chosen the name “Silver Screen Serenade” for this blog, I really don’t discuss music very much. Hopefully, this feature can fix that.
