Everybody’s Chattin’ – Reviews Edition + Brief Hiatus Announcement

Happy Friday everybody!

Aren’t you excited the weekend is here? For us in the US, it’s the weekend before Thanksgiving already, it’s nuts how fast time flies! Well this year my hubby and I are spending Thanksgiving apart, actually it’ll be thousands of miles apart as he just flew to Jakarta whilst I’ll be visiting my BFF in San Diego, hence I’ll be taking a blog hiatus next week, well apart from a special Thanksgiving post for next Thursday 😀

Well, I figure that for this month’s edition of Everybody’s Chattin‘, I’d highlight some great reviews from my fellow bloggers that I haven’t seen or written the review yet. So here we go:

New Releases

(one I REALLY should’ve watched by now!)

Well, this weekend I’m going to skip the cinema again, I’ll wait until my hubby is back in town so we can watch Hunger Games: Catching Fire together. So it’s home cinema all weekend, I’m actually planning to watch Mary Poppins! Can you believe it I’ve never seen that before? I figure I should see it before the Saving Mr. Banks screening next week 😀

So what’s your weekend viewing plans, folks? Whatever you do, have a fabulous weekend!

Everybody’s Chattin’ – because it’s always fun to talk about movies!

Happy almost Friday, all! And those who celebrate this holiday, Happy Chinese New Year! I was born in the year of the rabbit actually (and so was my husband), but I’m not really into Chinese horoscopes or any kind of horoscopes for that matter, nor do I know what’s the significance of those animal signs are all about.

But just for fun, I thought I’d highlight one of cinema’s most famous rabbit character, Bambi’s Thumper. From one of Disney’s most beloved classics, Bambi’s rabbit BFF is so much fun to watch, and but he also symbolizes friendship and loyalty. Sounds like virtues worth highlighting to me… plus, he’s just utterly adorable!

Ok, now on to the link love!

  • Everybody’s talking about Superman this week, and that’s always a fun week in my book. Now that Zack Snyder has chosen his Man of Steel, Castor @ Anomalous Material asked us who should play Lois Lane. Dezmond the Hollywood Spy reports that Olivia Wilde could be one of the contenders, and he also has a poll for you to vote on who should get the role of Superman’s love interest.
  • To remind us that there is more to Hollywood than superhero flicks, Andrew @ Encore Entertainment selects his Best Supporting Actresses picks. A total of 25 names are mentioned in his list… in his own words, this is “… a category that offers the widest foray of good performances, most of which incidentally are not as lauded as they ought to be.”
  • So what if you’re not satisfied with this year’s Oscar picks? You can sound off about it like I did or… come up with your own! That’s what Frank from Pompous Film Snob set out to do by inviting a few bloggers to participate on their own nominations. Now, that’s a list of nominees I can get behind, though I’m still puzzled over why Jeremy Renner’s in there though.
  • The Droid You’re Looking For that goes by the name John  is taking a break from his hilarious stick figures and charts to open the pandora’s box of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. Get scrollin’ as he lists in chronological order the movies he has seen and those he have not that are listed in that book.
  • Aiden reviewed a beloved 1984 classics Ghostbusters. I guess Mac computer isn’t the only great thing that came out that year!

    BONUS link:
  • Ross vs. Ross was on to a great cinematic find: The Nicholas Cage Matrix! No explanation necessary, you simply must check it out!

Well, before you run off to check out these fab links, I’d like to know: what are your movie viewing plans this weekend?
