Talk of Angels (1998) (Available Until June 01, 2016)

Back during my Vincent Perez phase I bought this on VHS. It’s decent as far as his flicks go. He doesn’t have a great Spanish accent (which is odd since he grew up all over the place) but I’ll overlook any problemos in that area. This movie is about an Irish woman who goes to Spain and becomes a governess. She finds political pressure in Spain, just as she did in Ireland. Polly Walker, Frances McDormand and Penelope Cruz costar.

Certified Copy (2010) (French) (Available Until December 27, 2014)


It’s about a man and a woman who have a barbed attraction and share a day together. Fantastic! The film stars Juliette Binoche and William Shimell.

Another Day (2001) (Available Until October 15, 2013)

Did you ever want to see what it would be like to see Prue and Cole in love? Lucky that you came across this flick then. Shannen Doherty is in love with Julian McMahon but ends up going back in time to shortly before her former, late lover’s death.

Passion Play (Available Until July 20, 2013)

I love everything about this film, the idea, casting, visual choices, etc. Mickey Rourke stumbles into a traveling sideshow and meets a beautiful young woman (Megan Fox) who plays the part of an angel. They fall for each other. Their love unravels since he’s tangled up with some other unsavory folks. The movie costars Bill Murray, Kelly Lynch and Rhys Ifans.

Good Dick (2008) (Available Until June 29, 2013)

Good Dick is listed under romcoms but it’s anything but. The movie is about a man who works at a video store and falls for an introverted woman who rents a lot of porn. It’s a very touching drama that I definitely recommend. Marianna Palka (also the director), Jason Ritter, Martin Starr and Tom Arnold star in this flick.

Conversations with Other Women (2006) (Available Until February 15, 2013)

Conversations with Other Women is a personal favorite. I own and have watched this film and the special features often. (I have entertained thoughts of making independent films and it was shot on a DV camera). The writing is top notch. It’s about a woman (Helena Bonham Carter) who is attending a wedding and meets up with a man (Aaron Eckhart) that she shares special chemistry with.

Last Night (Available Until January 1, 2013)

Last Night is about a married couple (Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington) who’ve been together for a while but are both tempted to cheat on the same night. Knightley’s character is definitely more fleshed out and relate-able. Worthington mainly seems like a stock faithful husband who is confused and tempted (by Eva Mendes though so it totally makes sense).

A Beautiful Life (Mei Li Ren Sheng) (China/Hong Kong) (Available Until December 13, 2012)

A booze and high heel loving real estate agent meets a police officer. She leads him on while using him to do things for her. It’s one of those friend zone relationships that actually goes somewhere.

Hope Floats (1998) (Available Until November 15, 2012)

Sandra Bullock, Harry Connick Jr, Gena Rowland and Kathy Najimy star in this film about love and starting over. It’s about what happens when your husband is a piece of shit so you have to heal and start again.

Random Hearts (1999) (Available Until November 01, 2012)

Random Hearts is definitely a different kind of movie. It has a slow build and it’s long. Plus it’s very sexy without being very sexual. This Sydny Pollack movie stars Harrison Ford (ahhh!) and Kristin Scott Thomas as two people whose spouses both die in a freak plane accident. They fall for each other while grieving, but her job gets in the way. Charles S. Dutton, Bonnie Hunt, Dennis Haysbert, Richard Jenkins, Peter Coyote and Dylan Baker costar.

The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) (Available Until November 01, 2012)

It took me a long time to get around to catching this flick but since I’ve seen it I must heartily recommend it. Jeff Bridges and Beau Bridges star as struggling jazz musicians who hire the sexy, talented Michelle Pfeiffer as their singer.

Where the Heart Is (2000) (Available Until November 01, 2012)

No matter how many times I see Where the Heart Is I will never stop being amazed by it. I read the book back in the day and it was incredibly schmaltzy and just okay. However the movie is totally made by the amazing, believable performance of Natalie Portman as Novalee Nation (I know). She’s a pregnant teen whose bf is such a dick that he ditches her at a Walmart. However she makes the best of things, befriends a bunch of really great people and finds her passion in life (and love) while bringing up her son. Ashley Judd, James Frain, Stockard Channing, Joan Cusack and Sally Field costar.

Suburban Girl (2007) (Available Until August 15, 2012)

The first time that I saw Suburban Girl I was dissapointed. However I don’t blame the film, I blame US Weekly. During filming all of the on set picks made it seem like it was fun and upbeat. Then it was released and marketed as a romcom. However it’s actually more dramatic. The flick is about a book editor (Sarah Michelle Gellar) who starts dating a much older man (Alec Baldwin).

Dirty Dancing (1987) (Available Until July 01, 2012)

Patrick Swayze stars as the older dance instructor that teen Jennifer Grey falls for, while developing her dirty dancing skills.

The Edge of Love (2008) (Available Until June 30, 2012)

I originally rented this on a whim and it definitely turned out to be a good idea. It’s a period drama set in wartime London about the lives, loves and friendship between two women played by Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller. Matthew Rhys and Cillian Murphy costar.

At First Sight (1999) (Available Until July 01, 2012)

At First Sight was mercilessly bashed upon it’s release but I’ve always loved it. It was actually put down for not being realistic while it was based on a true story and Val Kilmer shadowed the guy that it was actually about (I know, so wrong). Kilmer is a blind masseuse who finds love with Mira Sorvino. She helps him experience new things when he undergoes an operation that gives him his sight back but will it last? Kelly McGillis, Steven Weber, Nathan lane and Bruce Davison costar.

Here’s the deal. I wanted to do one of these like I normally do but now I have arthritis in my hands too & it’s not conducive to typing. It also makes it difficult to style thick, curly, unruly hair, so enjoy these mini movie previews of me in a Lady Gaga wig. Also, since this is my first time doing this I was in pain/in a hurry/confused & deleted some reviews so those will say thumbs up or thumbs down (even though it hurts to use my thumbs). At any rate, with this new, oh so fun problem I can’t even pretend to be normal anymore, so enjoy the performance art that is my life. Plus I apparently talk with my hands, like my mother, not fun to realize.

Iron Man 2-5/7

Photobucket
In this sequel to 2008’s Iron Man Tony Stark fights some other people who also wear metal outfits. Or some jazz like that. As big budget blockbusters go this looks pretty cool. I love the cast: Robert Downey Jr. (of course), Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Mickey Rourke, Saumel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany & Garry Shandling. However I had to watch the 1st movie about 3 times before I got through it because I kept falling asleep. So I think I’ll wait for the Blu-ray. The posters are awesome though. P.S. This is already out and making bank in the UK.
Bonus: Follow director Jon Favreau on twitter.

Robin Hood-5/14


Robin Hood is an action retelling of the story by director Ridley Scott starring Russell Crowe. Scott has directed Crowe in a lot of movies including Gladiator so many expect this to be very good. I’ve loved Crowe for years & it looks interesting so I’ll be at the theater opening weekend for this one.

Letters to Juliet-5/14

Photobucket
Amanda Seyfried stars in what looks to be your average formulaic romantic comedy. The film was actually filmed partially in Italy. This will be a rental for me.

Just Wright-5/14

Photobucket
From IMDB: A physical therapist (Queen Latifah) falls for the basketball player (Common) she is helping recover from a career-threatening injury. I’m not sure on this one. The plot makes me want to watch Love & Basketball again.

MacGruber-5/21

Photobucket
As a huge SNL fan, you’re probably not surprised that I’ve been flipping out over awesome this movie looks. Plus Val Kilmer (with pony tail) is playing the villain. Just awesome. Go here to watch the SNL sketches.

Holy Rollers-5/21

Photobucket
I’m not really a fan of Jesse Eisenberg but this film about a drug dealing Jewish guy who dresses like a rabbi is sort of intriguing looking.

Sex and the City 2-5/27 (Thursday)


I love, love, love Sex and the City. Many complained that the first film was depressing but I thought it was great. This one looks like over the top fun.
Bonus: Go buy Carrie and Samantha’s dresses now.

Survival of the Dead-5/28

Photobucket
This is the new George Romero film which is a sequel to Diary of the Dead. I liked DOTD & thought that it was cool that Romero was trying something different. Reviews of this have been very bad but IMHO even bad zombie movies are fun. You can already watch it streaming on Amazon.
Bonus: Follow Romero on twitter.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time-5/28

Photobucket
I’m not gonna lie and act like I know or care what this movie is about. I mean just look at Jake Gyllenhaal. He is super hot in this. Go here for more pics of Jake.

They have a lot more available but these are my picks.

REQUIRED READING

Mag Cloud is a service that will publish your magazine for you. I used to run an e-zine when I was in high school so this is right up my alley. The cons are print media isn’t being read as much when you can get so much on the net for free and a single issue can get pricey when you add up $.20 per page for the company plus shipping and your markup.

zoe
Zoe Saldana: Center Stage in April’s Nylon. I recommend picking up the issue to check out the full article. She doesn’t tip toe around what she believes in. She even makes a remark about (I’m guessing) her Death at a Funeral costar Chris Rock.

America’s Next Top Model had a vampire shoot this week. Apparently it was to capitalize on the current vampire craze. I’ve always loved vampires & was hoping for more. Some of the photos were cool but as a whole the girls didn’t seem that into it & the judges didn’t make enough ridiculous complaints. (Yeah, it’s a guilty pleasure to like that, I know.)
