Mohicans and Metaphor

There are a handful of moments in books and movies that strike my heart, mind, and sympathies unflinchingly. Generally these are moments characterized by some sort of passionate overflow of emotion or thought. One such scene happens to be in my favorite movie, The Last of the Mohicans, a story about a dying era and... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Inception

Inception is one of those movies that's either met with a groan or a grin - or both. The groan because - wow - multi layered dreams are confusing, or a grin because - wow - multi layered dreams are confusing. Yes, I know I gave the same reason for both. Really, the grin or... Continue Reading →

June in Review

Summer always comes with relief, but this June seems much more relaxing than any other has been.

Cold War Movie Review

*sighs heavily* This movie makes me sad. Not because it was a sad story (which it was) but because I had such high hopes (like Mount Everest high) and they were all dashed to pieces. When I first saw the trailer for Cold War, I was floored. That trailer was, and still is, one of... Continue Reading →

March in Review

April is here? Already? Months used to drag on endlessly when I was little and now I blink and the month is already gone. It seems the older you get the faster time moves. Movies The Notebook  This actually was my first time seeing this (I know, I know, what a shameful teenage girl I... Continue Reading →
