'A Birder's Guide To Everything' and 'After The Dark'

Hello all! I know that I haven't checked in for quite some time. Not to make excuses, but it's not my fault! I have been watching trailers and none of them have been any good. Movies I have also watched, and they were so forgettable that I didn't even bother with a blog about it. Finally, the trailer drought is over and I have a few new trailers to share with everyone! Hurray!

I want to start with the one I like the best. 'The Birder's Guide To Everything'. The trailer for this is bizarrely difficult to find! The only place where I could get it is on the Apple Trailers site. So, here is the link to the site where you can find the trailer. Sorry for the difficulty! The Internet has failed me! Here is the link to the trailer, enjoy!

So, I love this trailer and I love Ben Kingsley! It looks so incredibly unique, clever, cute, and enjoyable! Basically, I think I'm going to like it. What did you think?

Second, is 'After The Dark' or 'The Pholosophers'. It seems that the title isn't quite set or perhaps is different from country to country. This movie appears to be a group of young philosophers thought experiment played out. I like the different twist on the standard 'Apocolypse' storyline. Let's take a peek at the trailer.



I think it looks interesting, different, and fun! I get the sneaking feeling that it's going to get quite intense and dramatic by the end  but that will probably be pretty cool. All in all, hopefully, it will be a clever and unique twist on an old standby. Not to mention, that was definitely the actress of Ginny Weasley from 'Harry Potter' in there. I haven't seen her in anything besides 'Harry Potter', so that will be fun. If done well, it'll be great I think!


That's all from me today! Hopefully these trailers are just the beginning and I will have plenty of material from here on out! Fingers crossed!

Saving Mr. Banks ~ Delightful!

Yesterday afternoon, I walked into my local theatre to watch 'Saving Mr. Banks'. I didn't exactly know what to expect because I had heard some clashing reviews on the subject. I did have high hopes which I expressed in my previous post. I left the theatre about as pleased as I can possibly be with a movie watching experience! I absolutely adore this film!

'Saving Mr. Banks', as you probably know, is the story of how Walt Disney and his team managed to create the beloved 'Mary Poppins' film. A major part of this conquest was convincing the author to sign over the rights to the story! Throughout the movie you watch flashbacks to the authors childhood where the real life inspiration of 'Mary Poppins' takes place. Let me tell you, it is an engrossing and totally immersive situation!

Part of what makes this movie so fantastic is the perfect casting. I loved every single character. I'm not even exaggerating. Paul Giamatti was a true delight every mome…

The Hobbit ~ Beware!

I saw the first installment of the 'Hobbit' trilogy opening day yesterday. I was greatly saddened. It. Is. Bad. So bad that I wish I hadn't seen it. So bad, that I don't think I will waste my time on any of the future installments. Peter Jackson took a wonderful, complete, enjoyable story and adulterated it nearly beyond recognition. Now, before you think I am just a purist who despises change, I'm not! Yes, I read all the 'Lord of the Rings' books as well as 'The Hobbit' growing up, and I understand that things change when you are translating a story from book to movie. This went beyond that. I have many specific problems.



First, they added Radagast the brown wizard. Why in the heck of all creation would someone think that was a good idea? Let's add a totally unnecessary character and side plot that only confuses the audience and draws away from the real focus! It was terrible from every angle. His costume was tacky, his actions and presence we…

The Monuments Men ~ A Must See!

About a week ago 'The Monuments Men' hit the theatres. I have been anticipating this film for so long and finally I have seen it! Best of all, it did not disappoint! I first showed you the trailer back in August. This has been a long time coming! Time to get down to business.

'The Monuments Men' is a movie about a small group of art scholars, historians, and the like trying to save as much art from the Nazis as possible. Naturally, this is set in WWII. The cast is star studded and primed for a great performance!

This is a calm mature movie. it isn't going to shock or thrill you with flash and pomp. The story and emotion will suffice perfectly. That and the fact that visually, it's absolutely incredible! The detail as well as the grand images are both exacted with such correct perfection. I was pleased with every, single, second.

It would be rather redundant to go ever the fact that a cast filled with old pros and veterans knocked it out of the park. I do want t…
