Do you guys remember that quirky British comedy that came out around 2006, but didn’t really hit the states until 2008? It was called The IT Crowd and to anyone who was unaware about the premise of the show, maybe thought that the show was about an IT CROWD. Like the popular crowd. The new IT item. You know, that end of the social spectrum. Ironically, the show is about something completely different. It’s about the I.T. Department at a high end business with many levels to one building in London, England. And as you can imagine, the three main characters are quite awkward, and two of them are a bit on the antisocial side. Continue reading
Or a more fitting title would be WHAT YOU SHOULD ACTUALLY BE UPSET ABOUT WITH THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, INSTEAD OF THE RACISM.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually really enjoyed The Princess and the Frog. For the longest time I refused to watch it because I was under the biased assumption that it looked extremely racist. But then tumblr got to me, and I kept seeing posts that were incredibly too cute to pass up.
Before I explain you a thing, I do want to say that the animation of this film is beautifully done. In a previous post I ranted about how this film was the last hand-drawn film to be made by Disney. The scenery is wonderfully drawn and just breath taking in general. The movie also had many funny, cute, and adorable moments and jokes. And the characters are interesting enough to watch for 90 minutes. I especially enjoyed the jazzy alligator Louis. Continue reading
GUYS IT MIGHT HAVE TAKEN ME 17 YEARS OF PURE LOVE OF HORROR TO FINALLY WATCH ARMY OF DARKNESS, BUT PLEASE RESTRAIN FROM THE HATE COMMENTS. I love horror right? I have since the age of like 6. And I was always told that the Evil Dead is this amazing, cheesy, horror franchise of blood, gore, and crazy shit. But after I was scared and scarred after watching the first installment I dubbed the franchise to scary to watch by myself. I tried again when the new Evil Dead came out, and got through the first two before seeing the new film in theaters. At the time I figured it was all I needed. And I was right about that. But I was wrong about putting the movie off for so long. Continue reading
While I was in London, I got onto Netflix and saw all of these amazing movies and TV shows that were available there, that apparently aren’t here. If I could have sat around and watched British television shows all day in one of the most amazing cities in the world, I probably would have, but the sites called to me. The only thing I actually watched while there were show’s I’ve already seen before, those being Doctor Who and Sherlock. Hey stop giving me that face, of course I would watch those while in London! I’m a sucker for that kind of stuff. Continue reading
I ended up watching Unstoppable , (2010) not in one fluid continuity, but I still ended up seeing all 98 minutes of it. While also rereading The Sea of Monsters, because I seriously cannot wait until August 7th for that bad boy to hit theaters. But coming an hour into Unstoppable on FX and then watching it from the beginning when it aired directly afterwards was a bit of fun.
I ended up watching it with my father, which was lucky for me, because he has some knowledge of trains and knew that this was a Hollywood adaptation of a real life story. He provided much information that would had been lost on me, and also told me when to look up from my book. So he has his perks. Continue reading
So I finally got around to watching a not so legal copy of Star Trek: Into Darkness, but hey guys, I’m working two jobs and don’t really have free time when theaters are open, don’t get mad at me for watching one of the summer’s most special effects driven epics through a bloated lens on my HDTV at home after 10 PM. We movie watchers have to do what we got to do.
I will admit it probably wasn’t my best idea, because now I won’t praise the movie as much as I could have if viewed in theaters. I would have appreciated the movie’s gratuitous fight scenes, explosions, and cheekbones, that much more. Continue reading
Wow, so, it’s been longer than a week since I have written a blog, but I swear it’s for good reason. I went on that camping trip, then to Cedar Point, and began a new job. SO it’s been a busy week and a half. I haven’t really watched anything new lately, but I did rewatch the first series of Doctor Who to get my younger cousin introduced to the fandom. So today’s post will be about beginning the fanatical, phonomenal Doctor Who franchise again. Continue reading
Camp premiered last night (Wednesday the 10th of July at 10 PM) on NBC, and ironically the only reason my review wasn’t written last night after viewing it is because I had to pack for my own four day camping trip. Suffice to say you readers of mine won’t be getting any new reviews for a few days. Camp is an hour long comedy filled with outdoorsy and camp like tropes that make you wish you had the chance to be a camp counselor once in your life.
This past weekend Jacki K ended up drinking a lot more than she watched TV or movies. Some movies Drunk Jacki did watch this holiday weekend was 21& Over, Independence Day, and Mars Attacks. Guess which one I’m going to write about on today, July 8th, the 66th anniversary of the Roswell UFO crashing? (PS You’re supposed to guess before you read the title.) Did you guess Independence Day? Well, since I should have written that review on the fourth and didn’t you would think today would be an appropriate day right? NOPE, just kidding this review is on the quirky-cult favorite Mars Attacks.
