Imagine meeting the love of your life, who then asks you to sail across the ocean with him? Sounds pretty romantic doesn’t it? Well, that’s exactly what happened to Tami Oldham and it was just as beautiful as it sounds, until they sailed right into a massive hurricane. Oldham wrote a book about their journey, called Red Sky in Mourning: A True Story of Love, Loss and Survival at Sea, which has been turned into the movie Adrift (starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin). It looks pretty incredible and, after her brilliant performance in Big Little Lies, I’d watch Shailene Woodley in anything. If you feel the same way, Continue reading →
Are you one of those people who rolls their eyes at the big blockbusters that come out this time of year? Would you prefer something quiet, but filled with dread and possibly…a little sex? Then YOU should grab passes to see My Cousin Rachel, starring Rachel Weisz as an Englishwoman who may or may not be a seductress/murderer. It’s based on a Daphne Du Maurier novel, who also wrote what became Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca and The Birds. My favorite part of this movie is that Rachel’s cousin, Phillip, falls in love with her. He’s played by Sam Claflin, who is a full 17-years-younger than Rachel Weisz. Continue reading →
OK, I’ll admit it. I haven’t seen a movie in a week. Well, OVER a week, since I’m being honest. Sorry, but an extended Easter break and my kid’s 13th birthday made it impossible to get anything done. Even now, I’m listening some obnoxious kids’ show blasting from the other room and it’s Tuesday. WHY ARE THEY STILL OUT OF SCHOOL???
Anyhow, I haven’t seen any movies but my friend, B.J. Cleveland has.
B.J. is a local actor who…
Wait, that’s an understatement. To understand how truly awesome B.J. is, you need to read this quote from The Dallas Morning News:
“B.J. Cleveland is legendary…one of the most talented and versatile talents in town!”
This is why I brag about knowing him. Anyhow, B.J. was alternately cheering and moaning about the movies he saw this weekend, so I asked him to write some reviews for me. I told him that I only needed a few lines, featuring his sparkling wit, and THIS is what B.J. wrote. No one can EVER accuse this man of half-assing anything.
Find out what B.J. is currently working on by clicking HERE, then read his reviews below. Continue reading →
My friend and I were recently trying to list our favorite TEAR YOUR HEART OUT movies and decided that Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl had to be our current #1. We also decided that Autumn in New York had to be at the bottom because what was UP with that age difference?
But where does Me Before You fall on that list? Listen below to find out, but know two things first:
1. Sorry my levels are so bad. I’d like to blame everyone else and say it’s because I was interviewing such a large group. The reality is that I was excited and screaming into the mic.
2. If YOU would like a pair of Bumble Bee Tights, just click HERE & HUE will hook you up.
Have fun and enjoy the movie! Wait, let me rephrase that. Try to enjoy that massive, soul-soaking cry you’re about have!
I don’t know if I’m emotionally prepared for this movie.
Just last weekend, I bawled my way through the Hold the Door episode of Game of Thrones, then caught up on Outlander and lost it AGAIN over Faith.
The swelling in my eyes has barely gone down and now I have to see Me Before You? Seriously? It’s about a girl who falls for a recently paralyzed man and everyone who’s read the best-selling book says that I should “Bring Kleenex.”
Great. Continue reading →
I covered a new movie on Today with Kandace that the book clubs have been RAVING about! It’s called Me Before You and it features two ridiculously gorgeous people (Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin) who fall in love and then will probably break out hearts. I also talked about a new Quentin Tarantino flick that’s available on DVD and an animated kids’ classic that you might have forgotten about. Check it all out below and remember to catch Today with Kandace weekdays at 8:30am on TXA 21.
I felt pretty sad when I walked out of the theater today, after watching The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. It was similar to the sadness I felt when I finished the final Hunger Games book, but THEN I thought, “Well, at least I have the movies to look forward to.”
Sigh. Continue reading →
