My Movie Reviews


Nights in Rodanthe

My Rating: 7/10
IMDB Rating: 5.6/10

If your a fan of Nicholas Sparks or tragic love stories, you'll enjoy this movie. I guess I did for the most part.The only thing is they fall in love too quickly and you see too much of their faces. The story is basically them alone in an inn during hurricane season, she's going through marriage and family problems and he's going through career and father/son issues. It made me cry, I recommend it to the ladies, especially if your middle aged, lol.

Nick and Norah's Infinite PlaylistMy Rating: 6/10
IMDB Rating: 6.9/10

This movie wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I found it kind of, I don't know, something I'd enjoy more if I was 14. Michael Cera (the main character) plays the same character in all his movies. He's funny and everyone loves him but I'm getting a little bored of him. I thought the editing, and the music was pretty cool. I might watch it again and see how I feel about it.

How to Loose Friends and Alienate People

My Rating: 6/10
IMDB Rating: 7.4/10

This one was kind of stupid. I must admit some parts were pretty funny but that's all it really had. It also had too much Meghan Fox, her voice annoys me. I wouldn't see it again.

My Rating: 7/10
IMDB Rating: 7.3/10

I really had no desire to see this one but I did. Of course it had some violent parts, one scene I couldn't watch for like 5 minutes. But overall it had a good story, sometimes confusing, and humorous. It was directed by Guy Richie, I like his style of directing.

Burn After Reading

My Rating: 5/10
IMDB Rating: 7.8/10

Hmmm. I don't know. Kevin Wiebe really enjoyed this movie but I thought it was nothing special. Sure the editing, cinematography, directing, etc. was impressive but I didn't like the story. It was also really short and felt unfinished. Once is enough for me.

Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?My Rating: 5/10
IMDB Rating: 6.8/10

This can't really be an accurate review because I fell asleep through most of it. Some parts were boring and dragged on some were funny and interesting.... like all documentaries.

iPod History

My iPod history this year...

January- I'm sporting the blue Mini 4 GB, had it for years and it's at it's final days.

February?- Mini is dead, still depressed that I got no Christmas gifts, bought black Nano 8 GB.

Around the same time- Bought black old school Nano from a co-worker for $50 intending to sell it to another co-worker for $75. Little did I know Karma was going to pay me a visit.

One week later- Beautiful Nano is stolen from my purse on the subway. Only option was to keep the old school Nano:(

April- Christmas gifts arrive, and there lye's $200 to Future Shop.

Summer- Still using old Nano, still have gift certificates, and now decided to keep old Nano until it's death.

Oct 22nd 2008- Bored of the old Nano, then went and bought the new silver Nano 4GB on a whim! No more gift certificates.

To Be Continued...

Massive Update and a Half

Wow, it's been a while since I've been able to blog. I've been so busy and so much has happened since I last left BC. Ok... When I got back Josh and I went to a Wintersleep concert. If you haven't heard them before you should check them out, they're pretty amazing. I've been working pretty much every day. I may have had two days off in the last month and that's because I've booked those days off. One night I worked this private party that payed $20 an hour cash. It was a condo purchasing party, where the buyers signed the papers. I just cleared glasses and served appetizers, really easy for $20 an hour. I don't usually work those things because they're really last minute and I'm usually busy.
A bunch of us went to Nuit Blanche on Oct.4th. Nuit Blanche is when they turn parts of Toronto into a huge all night contemporary art exhibit. It was really fun, I don't think I got home until 3 a.m. The night started out with me, Jeff, Josh, and Kevin but we ran into so many people as the night went on. I've never seen the streets so busy before. Arrrrr, we had to go to Hooters to watch some lame fight on TV that lasted two minutes. Being the only girl, my objections didn't matter. Our waitress was someone Josh fired from Timothy's. That was kind of awkward. This thing was in the middle of the Eaton Centre (Toronto's biggest mall).
This was some huge water fountain thing that they filled with little rubber duckies. People would roll up their pants and try to steal a ducky but there was a security guard in the water chasing people away. It was very entertaining.
This is an Art School, lot's of stuff was happening here but we needed pizza!
We ran into a guy that Kevin knew, lol.This was an alley that was filled with book pages, very cool.

Josh and Kevin booth vandalized this sign in front of a Catholic Church, bad boys.This was another alley full of grungyness but had neon lights and a white panel ceiling. This was one of the coolest art pieces we saw.

Security guards shoesThere were so many things to do. They're was this place where every one was dressed like zombies, there was mascot fights, films played on the side of brick buildings, a waterfall pouring out the window of a 3 story building, etc. We only covered half of one zone, there were three zones. It was a fun night over all. So Kevin moved to Edmonton :( It was really last minute. He said he was thinking about it then all of a sudden BAM he's leaving in a week. On our last day in poured rain. We went to Mandarin for dinner (Kevin's first time), then we went and saw a movie, then we hung out at Second Cup with Jay who was just finishing his shift. It was fun, but I still can't believe he's gone. Saturday night I worked a wedding at the National Club and Brian Mulroney was a guest along with his wife. He sat at my table too, so I had to serve him. He was really nice, his wife Mila was really perky. Brian Mulroney was the only one in my section who didn't drink. Anyways, that was that.

Yesterday I went to Josh's house for a vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner. We had something fennel soup, stuffed squash, mashed potato's, stuffing, and green beans. It was really good. The weather here has been amazing so we played outside with his little sisters for a while. Today I finished season 2 of One Tree Hill (finally) and I work later today. I defiantly caught up on some sleep this weekend :)
