I Love/Hate Valentine’s Day Mix Tapes, Volume 2

14 Feb

Golden Girls Valentine

Well, that special day is here again. A day that is either filled with romance and love and chocolate and wine, or a day that is filled with hatred and resentment and pizza and vodka. For me, it will be just another Friday, because take-out = love in our house, and we get take-out every Friday.

Breaking Bad Valentine

“Saving Mr. Banks” Didn’t Get Nominated for Best Picture? What the Damn Hell.

10 Feb

Mary Poppins

I don’t get out much, as most of you know, and I certainly never get to go to movies. But once a year, a movie comes out that is not optional to miss, and Saving Mr. Banks was that movie of 2013 for me. You might think that I have a slight bias towards Saving Mr. Banks because it is about the making of Mary Poppins, which is a movie starring Julie Andrews, a woman I love and am obsessed with, but I’m here to set the record straight – I am biased, yes. But despite my underlying Julie Andrews agenda drawing me in to see it, Saving Mr. Banks is really a fabulous movie. And although some of the highlights for me were the 2 minute glimpses of Mary Poppins that show Julie Andrews, there are objectively a million other amazing scenes in Saving Mr. Banks that make it definitely worth seeing for those of you that aren’t quite as…unstable as me, in the Julie Andrews section of your brain. Not only do I think the movie is very good, but I also think it is asinine (that’s right, Academy, I said ASININE) that Saving Mr. Banks is not nominated for Best Picture. Or that Emma Thompson wasn’t nominated as Best Actress! It boggles my mind. I mean, Meryl Streep and Judi Dench? Never heard of em. Amy Adams? Seriously? Cate Blanchett? I couldn’t pick her out of a line-up. And do not even get me started about Sandra Bullock. Oh my god.

Oh, I'm not nominated? Well, that's hilariously charming and ASININE.
