June 23, 2011 – I miss L.A.

Loved this movie…it reminds me of how much I miss LA. Whenever I REALLY want to miss LA, I just pop in a double feature of this one and “Swingers” — and reminisce. So…today I RID Grand Canyon – and … Continue reading

June 16, 2011 – On erasing memories.

June 14, 2011 – All hail the nerd queen.

Some DVDs are easy for me to give away. Any DVDs including Natalie Portman? Not so much. (Unless I received any of the “prequels” as a gift, natch.) So, today…I RID myself of Garden State. A nice little movie really. … Continue reading

March 18, 2011 – Heart of the game.

Truly, one of the most dramatic and heartwarming documentaries you’ll ever see. It’s about a high school girl’s basketball team – and their coach. Recorded over a one year period, you find yourself enthralled by the drama of real life. … Continue reading
