The X-Files Movie

I just watched this movie tonight (don't know what took me so long) and it was impressively good! I watched X-Files a little when I was younger (when they weren't too scary...) and had seen the previous movie way back when, and really liked it, AND I had heard good things about it, so now I can agree. It was really good! It was particularly creepy though... that's probably on purpose, but I was left a little disturbed. But still, I liked it. Creepy, but not too scary. I may have screamed twice, but you would have too if a severed head opened it's eyes and looked at you. PS Gillian Anderson is so pretty in this movie! And I am LOVING the on screen romance between the pair, I think I'm with most X-Files fans when I say- FINALLY!

I put Pip in a box and mailed him to Heidi, and HE SURVIVED!!! I am thrilled, Heidi is thrilled, and I'm pretty sure Pip is more than thrilled to be reunited with his Mom AND out of that box. :) YAY!!!Heidi took these pics today!
Pip's new digs! Swanky glass tank and everything!

The Journey of a Lifetime

Farewell Alejandro!

In honor of our co-worker Alejandro's last day, we all decided to take him out to lunch! Unfortunately, no one mentioned anything to Alejandro, and he ended up taking the day off. BUT we'd already planned to get lunch together, so we did anyway!
Here we are! From L to R: Alex, John, Ely, Mark; Back is Brian, Ashley and Anna; and crouched in front is Isaac.

No Dogs Allowed!

This funny thing happened at work... one of my co-workers smuggled her hefty chihuahua into the office (dogs are not allowed). One of my producers got stuck babysitting the dog in her edit room, and that's when things went all wrong! Is responding to a question with a truthful statement considered lying? ;) Lesson learned... no more dogs at work!

Movie Reviews

I just got home from vacation and have several films to comment on. This list is ridiculously long! I watched 9 movies while away... for a week. :) They are listed in order of when they were viewed (so I could remember them all... it's hard to remember so many movies!)
PS I'm working with a 5 rating system... :)

My Life in Ruins ☆☆☆ I LOVED this movie, very cute, I laughed the entire time!
Knowing ☆☆☆.5 This movie scared the $*#& out of me! Effects were amazing, up until the last ten minutes when the room did a collective "huh?" Weird ending...
Push ☆☆ Too much going on, the premise would have been better for a TV series.
Confessions of a Shopaholic ☆☆☆ Cute. Fun. That's it.
G.I. Joe ☆☆☆ SO fun! This was a fabulous movie! Really cool stuff going on, the bad guys were interesting, the good guys had depth, were funny, the twist surprised even ME, I only realized what was going on about 5 seconds before the big "reveal" and usually I catch on much sooner, so I really liked that. I really liked this movie!
Julie & Julia ☆☆.5 I did not like this movie. I liked the Julia Child parts, but I did not like Julie, she was very unlikable, I had no desire for her to succeed, she annoyed me.
Doubt☆☆.5 Good acting, but I felt something was amiss, then Shelby informed me it used to be a play, and I thought that made sense.
Hannah Montana Movie ☆☆☆☆ This movie was totally cute and fun and I really liked it!
Coraline ☆☆ This movie was creepy, half way into it I found myself hoping it would end soon, but it didn't. The stop animation was nicely done, of course, but the story was too long, I wanted OUT of the terrifying dream world MUCH sooner than they let me.

17 Again

I loved this movie! I saw it on the plane this weekend and I was cracking up!
The best part was this couple, the nerdy friend, Ned, and his love interest the principal! Best moment? (spoiler!) Perhaps when they started speaking Elvish to each other... I mean, come on! That is HI-LARIOUS. Not to mention when he first sees her he hears Celtic music and wind blowing through her hair. Well done!
