Galaxy Quest

Action, Comedy, Sci Fi 1 Comment »

Galaxy Quest is one of those movies that you have such low expectations for that you end up enjoying it… even after you have seen it a few hundred times it still works. I remember when I first saw it, I was at my parents’ house and my mom told me to watch it. I was young and innocent then. It was before I knew that Sam Rockwell is annoying or that Alan Rickman is dreamy. I wonder if this blog is making my taste in men seem pretty weird? Anyway, what’s not to like about this movie? It’s also got Tony Shalhoub (always a winner for me), Sigourney Weaver (super hot @ 50) and Tim Allen (can’t really say I feel one way or another about Tim). Perfect movie for after the perfect movie for after the Cockroach Invasion of 2007 (at least, I hope the invasion is over).

Because I Said So

Ding, Girl Movies, Romantic Comedy 1 Comment »

becauseisaidso.jpgAfter a hard day of battling the Cockroach Invasion of 2007, I needed a little romantic comedy crack.  Because I Said So was just what I needed.  It had Mandy Moore, Diane Keaton and two hot guys.  I’m not sure about this emergence of Diane Keaton as hot older lady, but I much prefer Stephen Collins to Jack Nicholson as the romantic interest.  What can I say?  I always liked that Reverend Eric Camden on Seventh Heaven.  He’s dreamy.

Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

Action, Fantasy, Sci Fi 1 Comment »

phantommenace.jpgDo you remember how exciting it was when Star Wars Episode 1 came out? Even if it wasn’t as good as the original three, it couldn’t be too bad, right? Mesa no think so. Episode 1 is even the worst of the three newest Star Wars. There were a lot of awful things that I hadn’t remembered. In case you forget, here’s my short list:

1. Why does fake Queen Amidala talk in that weird deep robot voice? Is it so we can’t tell that it isn’t Natalie Portman even though we can see her standing to the side of the fake queen in every scene?

2. Why is Anakin so freaking creepy? He seems more evil as an 8 year old then as Darth Vader. It is almost a relief when he grows up ito the other creepy guy.

3. The not so subtle focus on the Senator Palpatine while Mace Windu says, ” But which one was destroyed, the
master or the apprentice?”



Master, sir... I've been wondering...

what are midi-chlorians?QUI-GON

Midi-chlorians are a microcopic

lifeform that reside within all living

cells and communicates with the Force.


They live inside of me?

In your cells. We are symbionts with

the midi-chlorians.




Life forms living together for mutual

advantage. Without the midi-chlorians,

life could not exist, and we would

have no knowledge of the Force. They

continually speak to you, telling

you the will of the Force.


They do??


When you learn to quiet your mind,

you will hear them speaking to you.


I don't understand


With time and training, Annie...you
