Monday Night is Movie Night…Apparently

Published May 30, 2012 by jrm17

I know I’ve been talking about movies a lot lately but watching movies is about the only interesting thing going on in my life right now.  That’s why I’m going to not sound pathetic when I say we watched about five movies Monday (That’s not that bad right?  Right?).  Okay, so it wasn’t five whole movies.  It was more like one whole movie, one almost whole movie, two halves, and three minutes of another.

Trailers: The Driving Force Behind Movie Watching? I Think Not.

Published May 28, 2012 by jrm17

Okay, we are going to talk about something I’ve been reading about far too much lately: movie advertising.  Well, I haven’t really been reading about it so much as I have been reading about movies and about advertising and making the connection on my own because there aren’t many books I have found that actually cover both.  Most specifically, we are going to talk about movie trailers.

Mature And Old Are Not Synonyms. They Can Coexist But They Do Not Mean The Same Thing.

Published May 25, 2012 by jrm17

There is a difference between being old and being mature.  This isn’t new to me but I think it must be news to some people.  I’m not going to name names (mostly because I’m over my issue but thought it would make a good topic) but I’ve had a little too much experience with this fact lately.  Let’s look at the facts… Read the rest of this entry →

Let’s Hope My Rambling Makes Sense To Everyone Else…

Published May 24, 2012 by jrm17

So Wednesday kind of snuck up on me and I didn’t have anything ready to go so let’s see….Hmmm….I think this is going to be one of those posts where I talk about a lot of things that seem related in my head (mostly because they are triggered by things that have happened recently) but probably won’t be connected in most other people’s so I will do my best to explain myself.

It’s Friday Night Lights…On A Boat

Published May 20, 2012 by jrm17

I know it’s Sunday but I have to be up early for work tomorrow so…in honor of me and Michael losing a good part of our summer to work and summer classes starting this week, we went to see Battleship on yesterday (It clearly had nothing to do with my love and my mama’s love for Taylor Kitsch…absolutely nothing.  Man, he looked good…).  None of us really knew what to think about the movie before we went in.  I was purposefully avoiding any and all reactions and reviews because I did not want anything involving my boy to be ruined by jaded people.  I was a little leery on the fact that it was considered to be in the sci-fi genre but hey, Tim Riggins can fight anything and I’ll watch it.

Yay! More Paranormal Activity On The Way!

Published May 18, 2012 by jrm17

I have just come across some information that I am very excited about.  I might be a little behind on the news but that’s okay because it does not hinder my excitement.  That news is that Paramount has signed on for Paranormal Activity 4!  I know I’m not the only person who loves this news.  However, I may be the only person who has a really weird love-hate relationship with the franchise and will never miss a single movie.  It’s kind of like my mama and Twilight.  She may have hated the first one but she is determined to see the series through just because.  I will stand by the only good ones in that series was New Moon because Edward was peace out and Eclipse because their acting wasn’t completely terrible (It’s getting better.  The last movie sucked but that was all writing).

Hart of Dixie’s Finale Won My Heart

Published May 16, 2012 by jrm17

So I’ve pretty much had my nose stuck in The Psychology of Advertising (this really lovely, totally not boring textbook) all day yesterday.  No, I’m serious.  I’m totally being a good student and trying to kick this giant paper’s butt.  Sarcasm aside, I really did read the book for roughly five hours yesterday, meaning about 10 pages of notes for about 122 pages (I’m thinking this is going to be a heavily relied upon reference).  Anyway, I really don’t know what I’m going to talk about so I’m just going to wing it and hope this comes out interesting.  The season finale of Hart of Dixie was Monday night so let’s talk about that… Read the rest of this entry →
