Film

Ok Film roundup.

Despite it’s stupidity-I loved Baby Mama, It made me laugh, alot, it’s not meant to be serious and sometimes I just need a movie like that. I love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, so I knew I would likely like this movie. Little bit of fun factoids-Amy’s son was born October 25th, 2008, exactly 32 years to the day I was born.

I am still undecided how I feel about War Inc. It’s a very John Cusack film in terms of humor and story telling. I guess I did like it, just not as much as I though I would. Especially considering the topic I though I would adore it, but found it a bit dry and/or slow moving for my taste.

Then comes Coraline. Oh I loved it. I loved it, I loved it. I am glad I saw it. It was everything I hoped in a movie based off Neil Gaiman’s writting.  I think it’s amazing stop animation and just an all around fun spirited, fairy tale type story. Like traditional Fairy Tales it’s a little dark but with a good message and lots of fun adventure.

Oh oh I forgot to add I saw My Best Friends Girl last night as well with Dane Cook and although the storyline is highly predictable I loved it, it was freaking hillarious in an innapropriate and crude kinda Dane Cook way. I laughed so hard.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Since you’ve seen it now, you can read the review that made me NOT want to see Coraline (despite how much I loved the book!): http://www.locusmag.com/2009/Reviews_Coraline.html
    Baby Mama annoyed me (why is Tina Fey SO anti-extended breastfeeding?????), but it was funny as hell.

  2. I saw Baby Mama on sale at Blockbuster the other day. I haven’t seen it and was debating on whether it was worth it. Hmmm…
    I want to see Coraline soooo bad!!!!!! I thought that was the same stuff from Neil Gaiman. I love his work!!!! So excited to see that…I’m going to have to sneak away late one of these nights by myself to go see it.
