Cats, Cats, Tomatoe Babies, A broken Eaglemoss Spaceship, Coconut Curry Bowls, and more caaaaats

Foster cat named Rigel, he’s a mirror image of his mother. Foster cat named Betelgeuse.  Note that he’s cuddling with one of the foster fails from last year, the only thing they have in common is that they’re both grey, so it’s interesting that they’re getting along so well. Nyx and Rigel, that midnight black fur gene is super strong. Not my cat, but she’s friendly enough when I run into her outside.  I have named her Tabby. I’m growing tomatoes!   Eaglemoss strikes again, one of my final ships and it arrived broken because they mailed it to me...

Eddie Izzard: Wunderbar

Eddie Izzard: Wunderbar: Directed by Sarah Townsend. With Eddie Izzard. Filmed during Eddie’s 2019 tour, Wunderbar exemplifies Eddie’s unique, surreal view of life, love, history and her ‘theory of the universe’. A wonderfully low budget but funny comedy set, I believe this is the first one that I’ve seen from Eddie since the decision to go full on transgender and not just executive transvestite.

The Card Counter

The Card Counter: Directed by Paul Schrader. With Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan, Willem Dafoe. Redemption is the long game in Paul Schrader’s THE CARD COUNTER. Told with Schrader’s trademark cinematic intensity, the revenge thriller tells the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past. I thought I was getting into a gambling movie with one of the best actors in the business, but ended up with a movie about three men dealing with their PTSD in novel and horrifying ways. Poker is in the background at all times, but the main story...

Starfish

Starfish: Directed by A.T. White. With Virginia Gardner, Christina Masterson, Eric Beecroft, Natalie Mitchell. A unique, intimate portrayal of a girl grieving for the loss of her best friend, which just so happens to take place on the day the world ends. Virginia Gardner is really the only reason this film works as well as it does and it does work to a certain extent. The premise is somewhat overshadowed by the betrayal at the end, and this film from 2018 has the distinct feel of a film made during the pandemic, with only a couple scenes featuring more than...

Scream 3

Scream 3: Directed by Wes Craven. With Liev Schreiber, Beth Toussaint, Roger Jackson, Kelly Rutherford. While Sidney and her friends visit the Hollywood set of Stab 3, the third film based on the Woodsboro murders, another Ghostface killer rises to terrorize them. Notable because it has both the dynamic duo of Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes as guests, as well as Carrier Fisher playing a woman that looks just like Carrie Fisher but is definitely maybe not Carrie Fisher. The rest of the film is serviceable as a note on getting past your personal traumas, though not all of us...

Queens, Cats, Plants, and Wicked Barley

Had a fun weekend playing cards with my niece and nephew, this is the new one that we played, it was overly complicated and I loved it.  It’s named “Sleeping Queens” Charlotte and Miles doing their thing. Odo and Miles doing their thing. I got some tomato seeds and I had purchased these cheap “grow lights” at the start of the pandemic, so I figured I’d try them again.  They didn’t very well with my first tomato plant 🙁 We all went to a brewery named “Wicked Barley” and they had some awfully nice beers to try out.

Scream 2

Scream 2: Directed by Wes Craven. With Jada Pinkett Smith, Omar Epps, Paulette Patterson, Rasila Schroeder. Two years after the first series of murders, as Sidney acclimates to college life, someone donning the Ghostface costume begins a new string of killings. I had forgotten how many big names where in this, Jada Pinkett Smith, Heather Graham, Liev Schreiber, Chris Odonnel, Neve Campbell, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Timothy Olyphant, Omar Epps, tons of people that were just getting started and went on to make great content afterwards. All for a pretty good horror film. Buy On Amazon!

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent: Directed by Tom Gormican. With Nicolas Cage, Pedro Pascal, Tiffany Haddish, Sharon Horgan. In this action-packed comedy, Nicolas Cage plays Nick Cage, channeling his iconic characters as he’s caught between a superfan (Pedro Pascal) and a CIA agent (Tiffany Haddish). Nicolas Cage as Nick Cage is about as meta as you can get without tongue kissing yourself while drinking with yourself at the bar that you brought yourself to. The de-aged scenes in this film just blew my mind, and if you’re as big of a fan as I am, you’ll find certain scenes...

Gidget Goes to Rome

Gidget Goes to Rome: Directed by Paul Wendkos. With James Darren, Cindy Carol, Jessie Royce Landis, Cesare Danova. Gidget, in Rome for a holiday, misinterprets attention she receives from a famous journalist. Discovering he is “chaperoning” her at Dad’s request she resumes interest in her boyfriend. Based upon characters created by Frederick Kohner. A perfectly fine Gidget movie, that was perfectly entertaining, but I believe this is the end of the road on my Gidget journey. I also checked out the first episode of the television series with Sally Field and it was perfectly fine too. Buy On Amazon!
