Leap Year with Amy Adams and Matthew Goode

Out of the blue, I was amazingly blessed to watch Leap Year with Amy Adams and Matthew Goode!

This movie, I believe, is for the girl in waiting or perhaps a sister who just can't get a man to pop the BIG Question, for a very LONG time.

Leap Year, is mixed with a lot fun Irish superstition, beautiful green grass, beaches and love.

There's also a mixture of Irish vs. American humor, giving the viewer a new meaning on what life is really all about- take some time to breathe in the fresh air.

Sometimes, love can be a tricky adventure, especially when it sneaks upon those who don't expect a person to be the one or the one we never would have thought could be the one.

I give this fun love adventure four hearts!



 

27 Dresses for the Girl in Waiting

27 Dresses surely cancels the popular superstition, 'three times a bridesmaid, never a bride!'

Today, I decided to watch 27 Dresses, starring Katherine Heigl and James Marsden, and after the film was over I discovered how hard single ladies struggle with waiting for that special someone.

Jane is this sweet lady who loves helping others but made it a habit with always putting herself last. Some of us know sisters who love helping girls wed and they are single and satisfied, or so we think.

Jane (Katherine Heigl) falls for a writer who uses her life in a column and at the last minute love finds him in the most awkward situation with Jane.

27 Dresses has some funny moments but again I wanted more passion and emotional moments, viewers will never forget. It was OK, but it could have been better.

Jamie Dornan Fifty Shades of Grey Cast Shocker

Will Jamie Dornan's Fifty Shades of Grey performance be a hit or miss on the silver screen next year? This is a question millions are asking after seeing the recent news on new cast results.

Yesterday, I visited a well known Hollywood Blog and was shocked to see Jamie Dornan cast for Christian Grey, the leading male character in E.L. James bestselling novel.

Most of us know Jamie as The Huntsman in Once Upon a Time and he was well missed after Regina the Queen crushed his heart in her hands. 

For any actor, booking something so anticipated, like Fifty Shades of Grey will open many doors in the near future. 

His resume is a bit OK but I'm wondering how this young Irish actor will be perceived as the young billionaire. 

We will find out on Valentine's Day 2015.

Misconception of Love in Blue Jasmine



Recently, I decided to rent Blue Jasmine and discovered how so many well established women have misconceptions of love and marriage.

Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) loses touch with who she is and what's really going on in her life because she spent so much time looking the other way while her husband openly flaunts the idea that he is into other women.

Her reality becomes overwhelming and she does the one thing former wealthy ladies do, she finds another well established lover to take care of her mess.

I believe the foundation of this story is one that millions of women refuse to acknowledge because they have this misconception that you need a man to feel good and successful.

The real truth is that taking care of you- your mind, body, and spirit before jumping into another relationship, is the key to true happiness. 

Before trying to feel complete and happy in love and marriage, you must have joy, peace and happiness before introducing yourself to a handsome, wealthy man.

All I can say is that Blue Jasmine had me guessing what's next for Jasmine and where will her story of true happiness begin. 



Finding Purpose in a Winter's Tale


OK, so last weekend I was really anticipating a Winter's Tale and I was shocked with the opening and conclusion of the film. 

Perhaps I was more shocked than most because I never read the 1983 novel by Mark Helprin. 

The only thing I was hoping for was a wonderful moment of romance, but it was so much more than this.

Colin Farrell's character was truly amazing and Jessica Brown Findlay did a unique job in playing the role of Beverly Penn.

A Winter's Tale went beyond the foundation of finding love but it was also about Peter Lake completing his task on earth. Peter Lake was someone's miracle waiting to happen but the enemy was sent out to stop him.

Shockingly enough, the story spoke to me in a very personal way, in other words, I discovered the amazing revelation of not allowing anyone to stop you from finding true love, and this also includes your purpose.



 

Fun with Sandra Bullock & The Proposal


I must admit that I had some fun watching Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal


The cutest element in the film was the fluffy white dog and the hawk trying to take cute doggy away. 

The plot of the story is something a lot of people find themselves experiencing with helping others from other parts of the world who need visas to stay in the country but again it's a fun comedy that has it's ups and downs. 

I'm not going to say too much for those who haven't seen the film but when it comes to romance in the The Proposal, I believe it was a complete miss. 

In some parts of the film I feel as though Margaret (Sandra Bullock) is holding back a bit and she really isn't feeling Andrew (Ryan Reynolds). 

The Proposal is a fun romance comedy without the romance.

To Kiss or Not to Kiss in the Movie Theater

When it comes to movie theater etiquette, millions ask if it’s lawful to kiss or not to kiss in the movie theater?

After meeting that special someone, hopefully the new cute couple went out to dinner, on their first night out, or visited the art museum.

However, movie theaters are the perfect spot for young teenage love but no matter how old a person gets, a little kiss in a dark theater can get a little carried away.

I remember seeing a romantic film and there were just a few couples inside but low and behold, two guys were arguing over who touched who while sitting down.

My personal opinion is to make out at home or in your car while driving back from the movies.

In other words when you are smooching a kiss, you will miss out on all the action in the film.

Hopefully, the reason why you purchased the movie ticket was so you can view the newest release and not make out with the person you came with.

I’m all for love but sometimes love has a place.

Plus, you must think about the people around you who can’t stand the sound of smooching in their ears.

What’s your opinion? Is it OK to kiss in the movie theater?
