Last night was the best Oscars ever!!! Hugh hosted--and Slumdog won everything!!!!! Other than Crash, this was the first time I can remember that my favorite show actually won!! IT WAS SO AMAZING!!! And they had everyone there.....
Seriously those kids made the movie---and how awesome that they all got to be there!!

And I love this photo--even though it was not last night. I hope all of these actors have amazing careers!!!
I realized last night that I am the fan that actors make movies for b/c I love them soooooooooooo much!! Love love love!! :)

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Tonight I saw Confessions of a Shopaholic. I actually posted a little something about my own issues on my other non-movie blog. And in the beginning of this movie, it really got to could she be so stupid? Does she want to be in financial bondage forever? So I spent much of the movie just trying to relax and enjoy the fashion. Which truly was worth enjoying!!!

Isla Fisher was delightful!!

And the colors were completely inspiring! I've been obsessed w/color lately--bright, fantastic rainbows and odd mixes of color! The dress above was probably my favorite (even though it was supposed to be ridiculous--it was way too awesome to be considered ridiculous!)
It's definitely romantic comedy month--and of the 3 I've seen this month I would rank them:
1. He's Just Not That Into You
2. Shopaholic
3. New In Town

Upcoming movie to watch for....

Did you like Little Miss Sunshine?

Well if you did, there's another movie you'll want to check into. It was written by the same guy--and is called Sunshine Cleaning. Click here to watch the trailer and tell me what you think. :)

He's just not that into you....

I've been looking forward to this movie for awhile, mostly because of all the actors (Ben, Brad, Jen, & Drew--not Scarlett--I hate her) and I totally enjoyed it! There were a couple of times where I was like--oh here we go w/the preachy stuff but overall it wasn't a big deal.

It was a show of Jennifers (well, one Ginnifer)...

And I'm not a big Aniston fan but her story line was probably my favorite.

Here's what I liked:
  • Eye candy
  • Loved all the story lines and how they all intertwined and I also loved how they would jump from one to the next....really kept things interesting.
  • OK so I admit I liked that I left the movie feeling like there was hope for me to be someone's exception. :) Or in other words, they wrapped it up nicely w/a feeling of "Men are pigs--but don't give up!"
I'd rate this movie a 7 and if you like romantic comedies--go see it!

New in Town

This is a kinda cute far as romantic comedies go I would say it is completely average. I will tell you that I did a double-header last Friday--this one and Slumdog (for the 4th time) and I had a moment of extreme sadness when I looked around the Slumdog theater--at the 15 people there and was sad b/c the New in Town theater was completely packed. Why do people see lame-ass movies when completely fabulous ones are available?

That aside, here are a few romantic comedies that are better than New in Town:

  • Return to Me
  • The Holiday
  • 27 Dresses
  • Waitress
  • The Notebook
  • Juno
And a few that aren't as good as New in Town:
  • Just Married
  • Fool's Gold (I haven't seen this but I am sure it is worse)
  • Good Luck Chuck (also haven't seen this one but Vanessa says it's lame)

There are mainly 2 good things about this movie:

  1. Harry Connick, Jr.
  2. The Minnesotans

Just take it from me---go see Slumdog Millionaire instead!!!
