I’ve Got Something to Say About This…

So last night was the biggest night in Hollywood for motion pictures, it was the handing out of the Oscars. This is the night where all the celebrities come together and pat themselves on the back and act like children, from time to time. I honestly enjoy the Oscars, it is fun and over the years it has gotten quite a bit more entertaining. Last night was not exception, but regardless of if you think movies are deserving of this awards or not, there is another award show that happens around this time every year too.

After reading more about “The Razzies”, which I have been aware of for many years now, it has quite an interesting history and each year it serves up the “worst” that movies has to offer. This year was no different but just like with the Oscars, I have no doubt there will be people who don’t agree with their choices either.

The American Dream at Its Worst..In Life and the Movies

Last night, I finally watched the movie “Pain and Gain” and boy was it a crazy ride. I honestly didn’t want to see it when it originally came out because it looked silly. Base it on my young age or my lack of being interested in watching the news religiously but I had no idea that it was based on a true story or just how closely based on the true story it was. After watching the movie, searched around and found a YouTube video of the “48 Hours” episode that explained about what happened. I thought about writing a review for the movie, but not sure how I would do it exactly and just sort of wanted to talk about how crazy it all was that happened.

I’ve Got Something to Say About This…Globes Edition!

Another week and I have been feeling neglectful of my blogging duties. I feel like I need more hours in the day to do all that I want and need to do. With my new Examiner page, I have been focused on coming up with more entertainment centered posts and commentary. Ever since I was little, I remember gathering around the TV to watch whatever entertainment award show I could find. I have loved watching the Globes and the Oscars every year and this year was no different. So let’s see what all can be said about this years 71st annual Golden Globes.

The Cameo

There are certain directors/writers that make cameos in their films like Stephan King, Peter Jackson and Quentin Tarantino, just to name few. These are the ones you can normally spot or count on to appear somewhere on screen. Also certain lower budget films might use this to get a brief appearance by someone. The film or the actor, or both might benefit from the appearance. So what is the appeal of the cameo? Shouldn’t they just stay behind screen is this just a trick or ploy?

Christmas at the Movies

Christmas is a time for family, friends and taking in a good movie? After all the presents, food and fun, what exactly do you want to do, sleep? I am sure that there are many people who might say that, but this year offers some great new releases on Christmas day. I know that there are a few movies coming out that day that I might sneak away and see. If you are looking for action, drama, or comedy, this holiday season seems to have a little bit of everything.
