A Review of the "Mother's Day" Trailer

There are many things I regret spending time on in my 27 years of life:

- Playing "The Sims" so much and setting up ungodly scenarios for my characters.
- Writing "Frasier" fanfiction as a young girl (I married Niles btw, I guess in some other world, we have several kids by now. Happy birthday, David Hyde Pierce, love of my early childhood!)
- Most of the things I posted on Livejournal as a petulant teenager.

But among the things I regret is watching the "Mother's Day" trailer. Holy crap. Why did I do that to myself? I might as well have watched a candid interview with Gwyneth Paltrow about her lifestyle. It would have had the same effect.

Frickin' Gwyneth Paltrow. That's another can of worms for some other Sunday.

 
So I listen to a lot of Ted talks and Super Soul Sundays when I work or am at home. I find them really comforting. I'm also probably 40 when I'm not busy being 15 again.
 
And sometimes, I get these ads on YouTube that I just can't get rid of. Usually I'm able to skip after five seconds, but not all the times. I've listened to more advertisements for local car dealers than I care to admit.
 
The other night, the trailer for "Mother's Day" came on. At first I laughed. What is this Hollywood voodoo? Oh Kate Hudson! What has she been up to lately? Girl, so proud of you for dating Nick Jonas for a hot minute. SLAY.
 
And then I couldn't turn away. And I couldn't figure out, why? What's happening?
 
Julia Roberts. Jennifer Aniston. Kate Hudson. That guy who does all the really obnoxious voice0vers. GARY "Never Been Kissed," "The Princess Diaries," "Pretty Woman" Marshall.


This is going to be the most painfully delightful rom-com trainwreck of the year. I promise you. Unless Cameron Diaz is releasing something soon.

 
You all see where this is headed, right? YOU'RE WELCOME.
 
Are people going to see this movie? Yes. It looks very sentimental and fluffy, and some people really dig that. I mean, sometimes I eat Nutella. It happens. Will I see it? Hell NO.
 
I like the idea of this, really, but I feel like the whole formula started with "Valentine's Day" and that utterly forgettable New Year's movie and even almighty classic "Love Actually" have beat this to death. Like, I get it. Oh my god. A holiday, and people coming together. Yes, I believe in hope and love too, and I believe that Sandra Bullock will find happiness eventually. And I believe Nutella has no calories either. 30Rock's spoof was brilliant; that should have been the "mic drop" moment, but alas.
 
In conclusion: This movie will get 2 stars, my Mom will see it, and I'll pass it at Redbox come September.
 
I want my life back, Garry Marshall.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
