Mommy and Me: Movie Review of Get Him To The Greek

Well...

Yes the movie was funny let me start out by saying. Truthfully I am not impressed... Jonah hill was typical. At times he made me think of the late Chris Farley with his unrealistic antics. Russel Brand what can I say, yes he was oddly funny, but I was just not impressed. I was not sure what Diddy was thinking, well money/business, oh I get that, but his character was mentally challenged. I'm being nice. I saw with two friends they laughed a lot, the theater was packed and laughter was on the menu.

Basically Jonah hill was sent to retrieve a narcissistic, juvenile minded, irresponsible, has been rock star. On his journey to Russel Brand's character her encounter a mountain of unrealistic and ridiculous obstacles. Didd'ys character made the movie even more mind numbing. I'm just being honest. I'm cool with Mr. Combs he a business man, all of these people are that's why they made the movie. I guess I expected something more, but I'd have to put this in the same category as Not Another Teen Movie. Yes, as expected there were appearances and cameos from random stars.

I feel like certain things were forced, the chemistry between Jonah Hill and his wife was just not natural. As entertaining as it was I could have better spent my nine dollars and fifty cents. I have to find out what theater I saw the movie at. I think was in Skokie. Ill probably opt to not watch that movie again. LOL!

Happy Movie Going!!

MOVIE NOTE: If you go on opening night make sure you get there early, for great seats and sweet treats. Oh and turn off your cell phone.

Mommy and Me: Movie Review of Prince of Persia

So mom and I headed out to the theaters to see the new installment of a video game turned into cinematic feature. Prince Of Persia The Sands Of Time.

I am such a fan of the video game and I very much appreciated some of the references to the video game. Like the way he scanned his environment to the way the sands of time dagger was used. Even though mom had never heard of the video game she was somewhat impressed with the action sequences throughout the film. I can tell you this much the first ten minutes had her on the edge of her seat and it takes a lot for mom to be into a movie of this caliber. Unlike myself mom is not so much of Jake Gyllenhaal fan. The back and forth throughout the film she could have done without, but again this movie is based off of a video game that she just does not know much about. Mom has expressed that she definitely enjoyed the film but it could have been better. Like I said I am a fan of Jake so I enjoyed it for what it was. I still play my POP video game.

I still felt the dialog fell short, the movie was defiantly lacking something. I feel like it was in the words better yet the script. Seriously Princess Tamina played by Gemma Arterton screamed "Dastan" at least seven hundred times, by the end of the movie I swear that was her only line" all in all it was entertaining.

As always we went to The 400 on Sheridan. I had a beer so did mom accompanied by a kids combo *WINK*

What Could Have Been

I tapped on the window she looked up at me
I could tell by the look in her eyes that she wanted me
I wanted to climb down and pull her into me
She was who I wanted she craved me
I stared out the window wanting for our fingers to touch
I stared out of my window fearing loves crazy rush
From beginning to end I want to be there for her I want us to win
I watched as fallen leaves became swept up in the summer breeze
I sat and ate cherries, sweet cherries...I watched her and she watched me
The sun's rays reflected in her hair oh how bad I wanted to be down there
The cool breeze danced through the trees, I watched as she danced to the beat
I could hear the traffic passing by as I watched her laying there
Her world was no longer, life was so unfair
Now I mourn my loss, our loss a love that would have never been
She is gone and I am here sitting in my room, wishing on what could have been



Just Some Words: Good Morning World

it's a new day, what are you going to do today
Get in a fight? Make love? Go to work? Whatever it is you are going to do have fun. Be kind to one another, I will do my best to do the same
Life I too short, you only live once, the world is at your finger tips....the universe bends only for you, if you believe it does. I wish nothing but sweet days ahead...have a beautiful thursday...I'm not living for drama and hate, I'm living for me....Thanks for giving me another blessed day!!

Untitled Words

There is so much I was supposed to say to you
There I stood in the shadows of the moon
My light no longer burning bright
My heart ached, kissing you, missing you
The rain washed away my fears, a new day and there seemed to be no tears
No more excuses, no more room for love
There were no steps left to take there were no more moves to make
My mate has been checked
There I saw her it was me, a stranger no more
It was like the sweetest love song, they say do right and nothing will go wrong
I though it was you, I thought it was me, us, we are to be
I came to you, you came for me, that was us, that was we
I struggle with this, this battle, this breathlessness
What a mournful Monday, I pray my heart will be right for another some day
She sang a love song so sweet, her lips sweet as a passionate pear
They all stared into her brown eyes they all wanted a piece of her they all wanted her
Hello world she says ready and waiting willing and debating...will she ever love again

Snippet: PERFECTLY BRUISED

The Hurt

How did I get here? I thought to myself, the gag in my mouth tasted of sweat and blood, my sweat and blood. I wiggled and pulled I did all I could to get myself loose but there was no use. I was not going anywhere I was in a panic. My arms were tied and bound to my bedposts, and my legs were duct taped together. I was so confused, memories blurred, and my eyes were swollen from the chloroform or what I assumed was chloroform. I remember coming home and opening my front door, how I got in this position was a mystery and I was soon to find out who put me here.

I heard footsteps coming up my staircase. My breathing became heavier, my eyes searched the room in a panic, what could I do? I couldn’t even scream. Each breath I took was precious, each tear I cried had meaning, my life was about to end and I knew it.

The foot steps were closer, any second now I would be confronted by the devil. I used all my strength to try and break free, the duct tape burned my legs as it ripped my hairs out, the bed shook underneath me. My arms were stretched past their limits, I tried to free them. I heard a loud snap followed by searing pain. My arm was no longer in my shoulder’s socket. The pain was so gut wrenching, I didn’t even scream, I just let tears roll down my cheek. There was nothing more I could do, I closed my eyes and said a final prayer. When I opened my eyes my demon was standing over me……..

Finally

Finally the sun is out and I'm feeling those beautiful rays
The world is so full of wonder when its nice out
with so much to do, kids playing in the park
couples making love on the beach
Parents getting away for an evening summer date
so much to do
I feel the love in the air, the moon was so full last night and all was so right
What are you going to do in the sun
whatever you decide, have fun and play nice
