I don’t know why I didn’t ever watch more of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s show – you know the one. I’ve obviously seen skits of theirs that have gotten around on YouTube and such and have always found them very funny, so… I have no idea. I do watch a lot of shows, though. That’s probably why. Regardless, the show ended back in 2015, so it’s only fitting that the duo make the leap from TV to the big screen, as they say. And, so, yes, they have done that, and the result is Keanu. … And here is my review of it. Read more…

Despite my love for this film as a kid, it’d been quite some time since I ever actually saw this movie from beginning to end. A few scenes here and there on ABC Family, sure, but the viewing was always interrupted by something else. Perhaps it’s just because the end of September is the beginning of a very busy month for my family – a close family friend’s birthday is at the end of September, and then there’s my stepdad’s and then my own birthday, and then you get into the “holiday season” along with two more birthdays thrown in for good measure, and it’s just rare that you sit down to watch anything you either have seen before, that is, unless it’s mandatory viewing – kinda like Shaun of the Dead or the Scream films are for me. However, for many, I do know that this is the movie they look forward to seeing every time this year, and, you know, I can’t really blame them. It’s a really fun flick. Read more…

Update! You know, not that anyone was really worried…

So, I’ve been meaning to write more, but something suddenly came up. Along with the work related stuff, I’ve made a sudden, new addition to my life’s obligations in the form of… a new kitten!

D’aaaaaww!

I know! And his name is Marty McFly!

He's got the red hair of the Eric Stoltz version and the tiny size of the Michael J. Fox one!

Now I have a cat named after my older (but still enduring) passion of video games with Zelda and my newer and primary passion, film! I got him pretty unexpectedly but not exactly by accident, either. Was looking for a new friend for Zelda after my other cat, Kairi, passed away in April, and this little guy just stood out. (And, yes, Kairi’s name was from Kingdom Hearts, which, come to think of it, was a merging of film and video games!)

And, on that note, while I spent the better part of the last week and a half ensuring my cats were not going to kill each other and destroy my place in the process and such, I’m ready to start writing again and still totally intending to publish my Tron: Legacy review this week before starting up the Fourth Annual Halloween Movie Month next week! I’m also hoping to get in a review of a crucial Batman film I have yet to review in celebration of the character’s 75th anniversary, but whether or not I’ll have the time before October is up in the air. It’ll come, though…

Anyway, that’s what’s happening. Looking forward to writing with some peace of mind now that my cats are getting along!
