Desert Island CD Blogathon: 12 songs I wish to have if I were stranded on a desert island

It's been a while since I participated in a blog-a-thon, so when my pal Castor from Anomalous Material initiated this one, inspired by last year's Desert Island DVD. This time, as the title obviously says, we're asked to list 12 tracks we wish we'd have with us if we're stranded on a desert island for …

FlixChatter’s Most Anticipated 2011 Movies – Part I

This post has been in my draft folder for a while... originally I wanted to post right after award season is over. Now Oscar is already behind us for nearly a month (boy, I kinda forgot about it already), so I better not procrastinate any longer. This post will be divided into two parts, Part …

Rental Picks: Miller’s Crossing and Road to Perdition

I finally got around to seeing Miller's Crossing this past weekend, but instead of my usual Weekend Roundup, I decided to review another gangster movie that I've been wanting to do for quite a while.

Reminiscing on my favorite Rochester – Jane Eyre’s 1983 BBC miniseries

The 2011 Jane Eyre's film adaptation I've been waiting for quite a while opens today... alas, only in limited release. So that means I have to wait another two weeks before it finally opens in my neck of the woods. My love for Jane Eyre started out perhaps five or six years ago when I …

Weekend Viewing Roundup: The Adjustment Bureau and North by Northwest

This weekend cinema-viewing choices came down to Rango and Adjustment Bureau, which trailer was quite intriguing. In the end my hubby and I went with the latter, even though Rango won the weekend box office just as I predicted in Scarlet Sp1der's poll last Tuesday. It seems that the viewing theme this weekend is men …
