Johnny Depp as Mortdecai


I cannot wait for Johnny Depp to THRILL me and to DAZZLE me again. That is, Johnny Depp as the Honourable Charlie Mortdecai.

Purveyor of fine art.
Lovable scoundrel.
Part-time rogue.
And NO, he does NOT need help with his bags.

Johnny Depp as a secret agent? You bet! In this action film he will be joined by a talented lineup that includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn and Paul Bettany.


Bonus: There's a bathtub scene with Depp but unfortunately, he's not alone for long, LOL.

Meanwhile there are not one but TWO trailers to hold us over until the movie is released on February 6, 2015. Take a peek for yourself:



 

Mortdecai's mind is his weapon... His mission? The world!

Looks like a fun romp to me starring one of my all-time favourite celebrities.

I hope the music in the movie is as fun as the music in the trailers!

So, what do you think? To Mortdecai or not to Mortdecai?

See you
at the movies!

Robert Downey Jr. 2015 Calendar




I shared my blog post about the Johnny Depp 2015 calendar with my husband and his response, other than a chuckle, was to say, "What are you going to do when there's a Robert Downey Jr. calendar?"

I grabbed our iPad mini and pulled up Amazon and within a couple of minutes I had discovered that there is a Robert Downey Jr. calendar. Who would have guessed?  I'm a big fan of Downey's character Tony Stark in the Iron Man and I recently saw and enjoyed him playing his cocky self in The Judge so I was curious about the calendar and you can see for yourself what I found.

An aside with regard to the movie The Judge. I would recommend it.  It's a fun movie with Downey and Robert Duvall. Some criticize saying Downey was playing another version of himself but I still enjoyed the movie.

Back to the calendar. The cover shows him playing that character we expect Downey to play and, unfortunately, with a cigarette dangling from his lips. I would have liked the image a lot more without that small but obtrusive element and it is definitely not the picture I would have chosen to put on the cover. I like a lot of the other images a lot more and might be hard pressed to pick a favorite though I do really like the picture with the orange sky...

How about you?
Do you like Robert Downey Jr.?
Do you like the images of the actor they've chosen to feature on this calendar?

See you
at the movies!

Johnny Depp 2015 Calendars



I have said it before and I will say it again. Simply. WOW. Have you seen the new Johnny Depp calendars?

If you love Johnny Depp and you are ready to choose your 2015 wall calendar, consider giving Johnny a glance.

But assuming you can only have one or you are practical and will only buy one, you will be left with a dilemma. Which calendar to choose? Truly a magnificent dilemma, don’t you think? I cannot imagine a worse problem to have!

The artwork from the back of the calendar might help you with this tough decision. Here's a peek:






How about it then? Which calendar will you choose? The first one in black and white or the second one in full, glorious technicolor? My mind is made up. How about yours?

See you
at the movies!

Tron Fashion

Until the release of Tron: Legacy, I had not even heard of the Tron movie and video game franchise.

I received my introduction to the movie when we took our teenage sons on a birthday outing to a movie. They chose to see the then-new Tron: Legacy movie and we all enjoyed it.

As a matter of fact, once I saw the movie, I was quite curious about the original 1982 Tron movie, too and eventually had the opportunity to view it.

When I was looking for information about the two Tron movies, I discovered this video and that Tron Legacy actually was translated into the real world of fashion. I guess that is not entirely surprising given how often movie items become merchandise choices for fans.  However, I really enjoyed this video in which high fashion pieces are shared from the likes of designer Robin Rotenier, apparel designer Nichole Jordan and designerJerome Rousseau.

If you enjoyed Tron or you are intrigued by how movies become merchandise, I know you'll enjoy this short video.

 

Would I ever wear any of these items? No way! I am a comfort clothing kind of woman but I still enjoy the idea of such futuristic clothing. 

I might, however, be convinced to wear the female equivalent of the Adidas shoes shown at the top of this page, if they made them for women.

How about it? Would you like to own some Tron-themed clothing?  

See you
at the movies!

Daniel Radcliffe on Jimmy Fallon


As a lifelong fan of Daniel Radcliffe - that is his life, not mine - I have to say I am still more impressed with him after watching him perform the incredibly difficult rap song Alphabet Aerobics by Blackalicious on the Jimmy Fallon show.   I am no rap enthusiast or expert but I can certainly appreciate how hard it must have been to learn every single word in that rap song.

Watch for yourself here on this five-minute Youtube video:

 

What did you think? Pretty impressive!

See you
at the movies!

Monsters, Inc. Blu-Ray Review

If you are reading this page you are no doubt familiar with Disney Pixar's Monsters, Inc. 

Featuring one big, giant blue Monster, this movie is a wonderful animated movie that Amazon says, showed "technical complexity and emotional impact."  
We loved the fact that the monsters in this film are more afraid of the children rather than that the children are of the monsters! 

If you are not familiar with this movie, you might like to know that your children will probably NOT find these lovable monsters scary and you might like to note that Monsters Inc. is recommended for children aged 5 and up.

Check out the trailer here for yourself and then read what the experts had to say about the blu-ray release of Monsters, Inc.




The Boston Herald called this movie, "visually dazzling, action-packed and hilarious."
