I watch TV and write about it. Sometimes I watch movies too.




What a weird little movie this one was. And I mean in in the best possible way.

Its premise follows the same trope-y plot line many films of the genre do: creepy, lonely blue collar guy obsessed over girl way out of his league becomes her captor.

And then the predictable story gets turned on its head. It’s rare to see Dominic Monaghan play anything but a loveable teddy bear (or maybe it’s just been a while since I saw him in something other than the LOTR trilogy), and his performance as socially awkward, slightly unhinged stalker Seth was actually refreshing, not to mention impressive.

TWD: New Best Friends

I don’t know how TWD does it: they manage to produce an episode that’s fairly decent and simultaneously makes me want to punch my television. It’s a gift, really.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you’re all having a lovely Christmas!

TWD Countdown: Not funny, Negan

Less than two weeks to go until the season 7 premiere, and whoever is in charge of The Walking Dead PR seems to be working overtime, going all out with the publicity to make us forget all about the clusterf*ck that was the controversial (because yes, some people actually liked the cliffhanger) season 6 finale.

Are we done with Jason Bourne yet?

Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed the Bourne movies as much as the next girl. Matt Damon is always great, and as far as spy movies/adventure flicks go, The Bourne franchise has it all: artfully choreographed fight scenes, explosive car chases, a seemingly indestructible hero and plenty of shaky cam to leave audiences satisfied, albeit a little dizzy.

Just watched the “Friends” reunion James Burrows special… what a snoozefest. All that hype for 12′ of 5/6 of the cast reminiscing about the show.


Happy New Year everyone!

Here’s to an exciting 2016, full of love, happiness, health and success for you and your loved ones!



Happy Holidays!

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and also the season where there’s nothing to watch on TV because you’re supposed to be out there enjoying yourself, celebrating with family, partying with friends … and none of it involves being glued to the screen unless you’re watching classic Christmas movies you’ve seen a thousand times before.

Which exactly what I intend to do over the next few days, so there will be radio silence on the Telethon until 2016 rolls around. 

Coincidentally, yesterday’s post was #100 on this blog, so it’s nice to leave 2015 having hit a milestone.

Meanwhile, allow me to shamelessly plug my baking blog and show you my festive gingerbread house (filled with a glorious Christmas chocolate cake!) …
