Starring: Robert Redford, Jennifer Lopez, Morgan Freeman OK I don’t have a lot this one. It was a random rental, based on the cast alone. I will rent anything with Jennif…excuse me…Morgan Freeman. So this one popped up on the ol’ Blockbuster search and here it was. It was OK. Not horrible, but not great. […]

If there’s one thing that’s usually consistent for seeing movies in theaters for me, it’s seeing Pixar movies. I believe I have seen all but one of the Pixars in the theaters, with the exception being Ratatouille (which I thought was great, but it was last summer). So I’ve been ready for the yearly Pixar […]

To be honest, I didn’t rent this one for my love of history, a beautiful romance, or a dramatic tale. No, no, no. It was b/c it has Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. Duh. So I usually don’t go for these old historic ones unless it involves William Wallace. But I was surprised that it […]

Song Recommendations: Family Tree, Commerce TX, Falling, Wasted & Ready, How It Should Be (Sha Sha), Walk On Me I got this album from the library a few years ago. I copied it onto my computer and “forgot” to delete it. Whoops! Anyways, Ben Kweller. Ah yes. Ben Kweller. This was his first album. Sounds […]
