Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok

My review of Thor: Ragnarok can be summed up in two words. Ok, three. More Loki. (Please?) I didn’t love it. I always want more Loki. It was a bit too campy at times for my liking. The short hair was nice. Loki is a dream.…

Movie Night Sean Bean

Movie Night (Always Choose Sean Bean)

When HWMMS “allows” me to “choose” the movie we are going to “watch” there’s usually one movie that I want much over the other. Tonight, I hesitated. I’ll explain in a bit. First a little clarification. “Allows” – I have some control over the selection. It’s…

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Yep. So, here I am watching the Dead Dad X 2 movie of the Marvel Universe, And while I forgot how adorable Baby Groot is…oh my god seriously, how can a small animated wee tree be the cutest character in any…

“Don’t Call Me Lawrence”

Gettysburg. Currently hiding in the MUCH COOLER basement watching the movie Gettysburg with HWMMS after taking a quick dip in the pool. Note, this was upon my request. Jeff Daniels as Chamberlain has to be one of my favorite movie performances of all time. And the…

WNY Outdoor Movie Time

WNY Outdoor Movie Time: A repost of my article from the Springville Times By Jennifer Weber As with most events in Western New York in the summertime, you won’t find a lack of options available for entertainment. For those who love movies, how about a nostalgic,…

Gnomeo & Juliet

Gnomeo & Juliet

Gnomeo & Juliet is on the teevee. It was my first movie date with HWMMS, it was for Valentine’s Day and my first 3D movie.  Sweet memories. That year we dressed up like gnomes for Halloween. And then we used the photo on our Christmas card.…

Bad, Bad Friday:

Bad, Bad Friday: Circa 1992

Bad, Bad Friday: Circa 1992. Picture it. Fredonia, NY, 1992. Good Friday. Two friends and I decide to go to a movie at the fancy newish still to our small town Movieplex 59. (Named after exit 59 off the NYS Thruway) What movie do we go…

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange—-“It’s Not About You”  Oh, it’s soooooo good. (On our 3rd viewing…) Doctor Strange I adore Rachel McAdams in this movie. And there is the obvious eye candy that is Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor. If only my gorgeous cloak that HWMMS bought me for…

Love is…

…being completely surprised by a thoughtful bouquet of red roses. We don’t really “do” Valentine’s Day. Not since the very, very first one in the beginning of our courtship when HWMMS was trying really hard to impress me…I mean when the love of my life surprised…

The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music makes my soul smile. Of course, it might have something to do with the sweet, innocent memories of Fredonia Central School District from 25+ years ago. The fact that this many years later, I can probably tag a bunch of the cast…

Marvel Movies—Ranked?

Marvel Movies—Ranked? As ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Opens Overseas, Every Marvel Movie Ranked From Worst To Best Hmmmm. I loved Iron Man (it got me into all the others!) Avengers, Guardians (was a total surprise), Winter Soldier, Ant-Man and Thor 2 (but honestly only because of…

Star Wars Virgin No More!

Here are my random observations upon watching all of the Star Wars movies for the first time before turning 42 years old. Star Wars Virgin, no more. My Star Wars Education Today I turned 42 years old. And it is just this week that I am…

Jump Back to the Future

This weekend Erin and I went to Cleveland to attend Jump Back Ball an annual event put on by Playhouse Square. As it should be, since the year is 2015, the theme was Jump Back to the Future, so of COURSE I had to attend! I’m…

And I’m a Hound Dog

One of my most favorite movies as a kiddo…The Fox And The Hound. Watching this clip alone makes me cry. And now I have my very own Giant Puppy sized hound dog. Jordie is finding her howl voice and it is so stinking cute…

The YEAR of Back to the Future Has Arrived!

2015: The YEAR of Back to the Future Has Arrived! This is one of my most favorite outfits of all time. ALL. TIME: Lorraine Baines McFly Tannen, circa Alternate 1985. Anyone who knows me is WELL AWARE of my obsession over the greatest movie trilogy of…

A Very Loki Christmas

A Very Loki Christmas I check out these adorable inspirational bracelets all the time. I didn’t actually think HWMMS knew this though…so opening this box and finding a cute bracelet with the quote “I AM BURDENED WITH GLORIOUS PURPOSE” pretty much had me rolling over in…

Shoo Fly! (Firefly version…)

Shoo Fly! (Firefly version…) Damn flies. It’s our fault I suppose for leaving the garage door open so the dog can come in and out as he pleases while we are outdoors. (Which for Henri the Doggie is about every 7.5 minutes, approximately.) But how are…

Jayne Hat

He Who Makes Me Smile LOVED the Jayne hat. He proudly wore the goofy Jayne hat on his head for the Guinness toast at the Irish Center last night. Of course 99.7% of the people had NO IDEA WHY A MAN WOULD WEAR SUCH A CRAZY…

Jayne Hat

Jayne Hat. I bought a Hero of Canton hat from Etsy for HWMMS. Best part? IT CAME WITH THE NOTE FROM JAYNE’S MOM! The little touches like this make the difference. Also, yes I know I am becoming a Geeky Gal.

A Blockbuster of a Blockbuster Sale!

A Blockbuster of a Blockbuster Sale! I’ve been wanting to watch the movie Idiocracy with He Who Makes Me Smile for some time now. (If I had to sit through Zombieland, he can sit through one of my favorite dumb movies.) So I wandered into my…

Back to the Future Party!

Back to the Future Party! Back to the Future Party!Back to the Future Party!A great (scott) success! I dressed up as  Lorraine Baines McFly Tannen, circa Alternate 1985. Save

Mini Vacation Movie Wrapup

Ah…longing for the days last week when life was filled with two toddler boys, central air and all the TV you could ever dream of asking for, on demand. During my time in Cleveland I watched a few movies after my friends went to bed. Surprise,…

Back to the Future

If you know me, you know about my serious love affair with Back to the Future. I realized last week that one of my now dearest buddies Maggie…was ONE YEAR OLD when Back to the Future came out. ONE. And my co-worker argyle wearing friend Bobby?…

Hot Tub Time Machine

Slightly edited quotes from time travel movies in the 80’s that I hope to hear in Hot Tub Time Machine. “Are you telling me you made a time machine, out of a HOT TUB?” “The way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine…

The (Not So) Incredible Hulk

The (Not So) Incredible Hulk Ah, this movie thing is already starting to get old. See what happens when I see an excellent movie like Iron Man? I am spoiled for all other movies, especially comic book ones. After spending a day in the country with…

Match Point

Match Point “There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn’t, and you…
