The Devil’s Advocate

It’s time for another thrilling installment of ’90s movie night. Although there were some heavy contenders this week, the obvious quickly revealed itself: Keanu Reeves. Al Pacino. Mediocre literary references. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you The Devil’s Advocate. Continue reading

The Grief of Frozen

Since my child has entered toddlerhood, I’ve found that the majority of my time is spent watching Frozen. I’ve gone through the stages of grief several times over regarding the inevitable permanence of this film in my life. I’m not sure that this is what Dr. Kubler-Ross had in mind when she outlined the process, but it is entirely applicable to my mourning. Continue reading

American Horror Story Hotel: Episodes 8 and 9

Unfortunately for all of us, American Horror Story returns from its brief hiatus this week. Catch up on previous episodes with my wonderful bestie, Trey, and, of course, little old me.

 

 

 

Point Break…not the new one

The ’90s were an amazing time in cinematic history. Let’s face it, filmmakers will never top the decade that gifted us with such treasures as The BodyguardCon Air, and Nell. Recently, I have mandated that movie nights in our home consist purely of films from this era. It makes for some good times. This is how I was introduced to Point Break. One of the more recent victims of the Hollywood trend to remake all that is sacred, the original Point Break stands on its own for a number of reasons. I have not seen the updated version, but I am here to tell you that I don’t need to. And neither do you. Continue reading

The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Potzsch

I could not get into this book at all. I tried and tried and tried, and by then I was halfway through, so I begrudgingly dragged myself through the rest of it.  Continue reading

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King

As readers, we all know the euphoria of one-more-chapter books. These glorious novels have been few and far between for me in recent years, so when I find one, I treasure it. The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is Stephen King’s latest collection of short stories. I may be a tad bit biased, since Stephen King is my spirit animal. That being said, Bazaar left me spending many nights chasing after that elusive last chapter. Continue reading

Two Girls One Book Presents: Life and Death by Stephenie Meyer

Hello out there!! This week’s review is another stunning collaboration with my Bestie @Sarindre, of the fabulously awesome Geeks and Geeklets (http://geeksandgeeklets.com/).

After a fairly extensive discussion, Trey and I determined that the only thing worth discussing in regards to Life and Death is the cover art.

2 Girls 1 Show Presents – AHS: Hotel Episodes 6 & 7

Oh American Horror Story… Trey (@Sarindre) and I watch it so you don’t have to. Take a look at our findings for the past two episodes.

 

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

I am so over kidnap-and-torture-women books. Seriously. Why can’t anyone ever kidnap a guy and lock him in the basement or a barn or [insert scary isolated place here].Karin Slaughter’s Pretty Girls doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Actually, it doesn’t bring anything to the table other than gory descriptions of captive women being abused and humiliated, all the while being recorded for a snuff tape site. Continue reading

Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain

Diane Chamberlain novels are my guilty pleasure. There. I’ve said it. I discovered her about two years ago with Necessary Lies and I have been shamelessly devouring her books ever since. It’s chick-lit, it’s reasonably sappy, and it’s nothing I would ever picture myself enjoying. But, for some reason, I do. Pretending to Dance is Chamberlain’s latest effort, and while it’s not my favorite, it doesn’t disappoint. Continue reading
