Watch "The Nice Guys" (And Not Just For Ryan Gosling)

  When Ryan Gosling makes a movie, you better know I am going to make considerable effort to see it. Drop the kids with their grandma, pay a teenager to sort of pay attention to them while they play video games and she texts her friends incessantly, or haul them to the theater with me and deposit them in whichever kid movie is playing around the same time with definitive instructions and $5 to blow in the arcade afterwards (this time it was Angry Birds and they loved it) – all of that is on the table. I made it happen…

4 Riveting True Crime Podcasts You Can't Miss!!!

  There’s something about the darker side of life that really fascinates me. Be it a creepy historical tale, a discussion about serial killers, cold case investigations or unsolved mysteries, I’m hooked — I find the stories riveting. It’s true. I’m a closet true crime podcast junkie. And while I’ve mostly harbored these interests to myself, I’ve recently discovered a whole slew of people who also find themselves fascinated by an eerier side of life. If you’re one of the those folks (it’s okay; you’re not alone!), I’ve got a fun round-up of true crime podcasts you’ll want to dig into… 4 Riveting True…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

  This weekend we enjoyed some lovely spring weather, the Easter holiday, and Batman v Superman! You guys know how I feel about superhero movies — So. My. Jam. But, before we talk all of the things here, let me back it up a bit. Personally, when it comes to super heroes, I am so Team Marvel over Team DC. The Marvel heroes and their stories are more compelling to me. And they have Chris Hemsworth (Thor). He could be a bad guy and I’d still totally root for him and his man bun. That being said, Superman has always been one of my…

Zootopia may be the best film in 2016!

  Or at least in March. For those of you who read my recent write up on The Revenant, you’re probably thinking, “This title explains so much.” Of course the girl who doesn’t appreciate the Oscar nominated, cinematic-ally inspiring, basically true story of survival is going to love some low brow animated flick from Disney. Only, uh-uh, because it wasn’t low brow. It was high brow! Sort of. At least in that hey-this-is-more-than-a-movie-about-a-crime-stopping-bunny kind of way. And, honestly, it made you think. About things we could all stand to do a little thinking on these days. And then, in classic Disney style, it…

15 Epic Movies To Stream Right Now!!!

  Growing up, I was never into all the girly-girl stuff that most of my tween/teen female friends went bananas over. Well, except for blue eye shadow and liner, Sun In, glitter stickers, and my faithful crimper. It was the ’80s, after all. In terms of music, reading, and movie watching, however, I was all about the atypical selections. Stephen King in middle school? Oh, you bet. My favorites were The Shining and Misery. NKOTB in the ’90s did nothing for me, and instead I preferred my folks’ vinyl and other less popular stuff. Granted, it was hard to escape Tiffany and…
