The Handmaid’s Tale (show)

A few months ago I mentioned in my review of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale that I was hurrying through the book to be able to watch the new series on Bravo. Tonight was the season finale and it was amazing. This is one of the few shows that – in my opinion – has far surpassedContinue reading “The Handmaid’s Tale (show)”

a very late review aka Guardians of the Galaxy

Guess who finally saw Guardians of the Galaxy II?! Yup, this girl. I’m sure there are a million and one reviews out there already breaking it down, but I want to talk about it so here is one more.

Drop Dead Fred (film)

Please Kill Mr Know It All

Please kill Mr Know It All is a 90 minute comedy that I borrowed from our local library this week. I think it is an indie film. It was unrated but I would probably place it about pg-13; it was not nearly as graphic or violent as I anticipated, and much funnier. The story beginsContinue reading “Please Kill Mr Know It All”

Bedknobs and Broomsticks

Well, I haven’t been feeling well this week at all but unfortunately I had to work through it. Normally I am working about 70 hours a week so the fact that Monday was the Family Day holiday … so thankful! I firmly believe there should be at least one holiday long weekend every single month. ThisContinue reading “Bedknobs and Broomsticks”
