It’s been a while and by a while I mean years that I have not movie binged. Not only don’t I have that luxury time but in my free time I prefer to read or work on writing. More often that not I’d start a movie and just leave it ten minutes through then never return to it. Most of the time I’m so focused on whatever I’m writing that enjoying anything else just isn’t in the cards.
But lately, I have been having these lazy days. Like last weekend me and the kids were just home, huddled inside in the warmth. These past few weekends were rainy and chilly. All that is suppose to go away in a short while and then comes the humidity and frizzy hair….wait was I saying again? Oh right, movies!
So we’re not even at the half mark of the month of May and I have watched seven movies so far. Whaaaaaaat! That’s a lot for me. That’s more than I watch in six months usually. I’m so behind though, I have not seen movies released in 2012. I pick and choose though, I’m not a watcher of things like I’m a reader of things.
Here’s what I’ve looked at so far…
- The Magic Mikes! Magic Mike & Magic Mike XXL – Don’t even ask! Well if you must know 🙂 I kept seeing it all over facebook and then there was a dance thing on Ellen so I’ve always mentally listed the movies on my to be watched list. Channing and Mike Bomer are not hard on the eyes either.
- The Boss – I absolutely loveee Melissa Mc Carthy. I was a really big fan of Mike and Molly. She is just too awesome and funny and beautiful. I’d watch anything with her. The Heat in which she shared screen space with Sandra Bullock was a good one too.
- Bad Mom’s – This movie was written for me, I believe it. You just want to un-mom for a moment, don’t you? All jokes aside, I like the cast and their humor so I quite enjoyed this one. Was there supposed to be a part two? I hope!
- Light’s Out – Ooooh! I loved this hard as a horror movie. Because most horror movies have a good build up but lame climax. This one was good.
- Don’t Breathe – This one was another good one on the bone chilling scale. Quite enjoyed it as well. It’d be nice to see a sequel. I won’t tell you why because I don’t want to spoil it. Go watch it.
- Moana – Oops but I didn’t finish watch Moana yet. Something happened and me and the kids couldn’t finish it the other day but we’re planning too. The soundtrack so far is amazing though.
Leave me some scary movie suggestions in the comments….I’m in that zone these days. What did you enjoy recently?

I have been following Once Upon A Time TV Series since the start and it’s now finishing it’s sixth season. If you watch this show, you’ll have already developed favorites as well as the ones you generally dislike with a passion. I will be honest with you when I say that the last two seasons of the show was hard to watch at times, the story dragged on or ran in circles and sometimes the stories were a major build up with a seriously stupid climax. For instance the season with Hades who was made out to be this super villian(I thought the part wasn’t cast well by the way), only to have a strange climax of him falling in love with the Wicked Witch of the West.
I also thought Robin Hood dying was painful to watch, and still is. I think Regina, the former Evil Queen has earned her dues on this show and at least deserved that happy ending. Oh well, I’m not all about happy endings. I engage in the drama and goriness of TV shows quite well(not that I watch a whole lot of TV).
In the last few days I’ve been seeing articles popping up all over the internet about Jennifer Morrison, the star and savior of Storybrooke’s departure from the show. On her Facebook she mentioned her contract being ended after six seasons and she’d like to move on to other projects. Okay, that is understandable as her storyline needs to wrap up to be honest and her marriage to Captain “Very Hot” Hook should be her happily ever after. However, there is still a two hour finale to go and from the looks of it, I’m not sure a happily ever after story with Captain Hook hangs in the balance.
Also, news of the entire Charming family’s departure has made light. Making that, Snow White, Prince Charming and Jared Gilmore’s exit from the show. In my heart I wish to see the Charmings go off into an oblivion of happiness and let someone else take the reins. Wishful thinking I know.
Another departure that comes as a bit of a surprise to me but not a total disappointment is Belle. My brain is doing cartwheels trying to figure out what’s next for Mr. Gold/Rumplestilskin. Will their son, Gideon survive or will he not?
The fate of one of my favorite things to look at is unnerving to think about. The anticipation is appalling to say the least. And! It’s renewed for a seventh season. What on earth could it possibly be about? Leave me a comment if you watch this show too and how you feel about the departure of the first family of Storybrooke!

It’s very difficult to love a TV Show as of 2015. Obviously this has been going on for quite some time but recently it’s getting worse. These networks hype up a premiere series and before season 1 is even over, it is cancelled. It’s really annoying for people like me who enjoy the continuation of a TV series over movies.
I have gone back to older series that I haven’t looked at with at least 3 seasons. I get that the networks want super ratings, but I’m pretty sure they get low ratings because people feel like it would be cancelled anyway. And what exactly are low ratings? For different networks, this means different numbers because I have seen some pretty shitty TV shows with longevity. Even if a new series looks promising, I will wait until it is picked up for another season, but by that time I may not even care.
Gone to soon(These are just some of my personal favourites):
Stalker w/ Maggie Q & Dylan McDermott
Witches of East End
Mike & Molly
There are also a lot I have been meaning to start, but what’s the point now?
So maybe it’s back to movies for this TV junkie or maybe some foreign series?
