Both are cabaret style movies, both have strong vocals and dazzling choreography and both will leave an impression, but, if you put them up against each other is one stronger? Continue reading
I like Anne Hathaway. While she may have gotten her big break in a Disney movie, she hasn’t shied away from varying and challenging roles. Here are five of my favourites:
I’ve been reading up on the hype of coconut oil and coconut water and I must say it has me a little curious. There is so much information and testimony out there about the many benefits of coconuts. It’s apparently a very good source of moisture for your hair, skin and overall hydration. However, as you can’t believe everything you read, I decided to test it out for myself. I bought a jar of virgin, cold pressed coconut oil for the purpose of my experiment and tried a couple of different coconut water drinks. Here’s what I have discovered so far: Continue reading
I love Phoebe as a character because she’s sassy, childlike and tough and just when you think you’ve got her all figured out she throws out a one-liner that will either make you laugh or leave you with a mountain of questions. Here are my favourite Phoebe quotes:
5) “A promise between friends means never having to give a reason.” (Phoebe can be rather profound when she wants to be and quite the manipulator – poor Joey!)
4) Rachel: “Phoebe, do you have a plan?”

It is difficult to choose only five favourite Colin Firth movies. There has been so many he has been in and I am yet to find one that I didn’t like his performance in. Here are five that, for me, have been memorable. Continue reading

Their chemistry was natural and the storylines well fleshed out and balanced with well-timed comedy. Blended, however, fails to transition into an Adam Sandler classic and instead manages to be an average family friendly movie you might drag out on a rainy day for kids between 9 and 15.

Covert Affairs is a sassy, well developed, action-packed spy drama. It has the intrigue and intensity of Alias and the quick wit and friendly banter of Bones (with sarcasm thrown into the mix too). Add to that characters that draw you in and I’m hooked!
Here’s my run down of the pilot episode: Continue reading
If my life was a movie the plot would not make a whole lot of sense. The scene changes would be epic and the settings a weird mix of eras and props. As the lead I would be a bundle of characters, the personality traits mashed together like an emotional patchwork mess. Continue reading
This is one of those movies that I had seen previews for in 2012 but never ended up watching when it was first released. Continue reading
I love Elizabeth Banks. She’s adorable. If you are after a comedy filled with lots of funny moments and ridiculous misunderstandings I recommend you add Walk of Shame to your movie night list. Continue reading
