Movie Madness Mondays: Coming Soon

Ahoy GBD!  I just wanted to let you know which movies will be reviewed in the next few weeks.  The movie for this coming Monday will be The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which is still playing in theaters.  This review will be brought to you courtesy of the dynamic duo that is Taylor Nikole and Binks.

Next will be a review of Gone with the Wind.  I’m not sure who’s doing this review because I am on a “need to know” basis.  lol.  My suggestion is that you start watching this movie now if you want to be finished by the time the review goes up because my understanding is that it’s, like, 17 hours long.  I kid, I kid.  It’s not really 17 hours long.  More like 10.  Ok, ok…no really…it’s almost 4.  It’s one of those classic movies that is highly rated by people who have watched it.  And it won like 10 Oscars or something ridiculous like that.  So give it a watch, yah?

Then to start February off right, we’ve got the one and only Jessica F giving us her take on Bride Wars.  This one opened this past weekend, so y’all can go out and bond with your friends watching this movie.

This brings us to The Tale of Despereaux.  I’m rethinking whether or not to review this movie because it’s not playing in theaters anymore, and hasn’t come out on DVD yet.  Plus, it’s not really a movie that the GBD demographic would be clamoring to see.  So I dunno.  I’ll think about it.

Which leaves us with Doubt.  Now, I know that I said I would review Doubt, but it turns out that I’m having a tough time with the review because I’m drawing a blank.  There isn’t really anything to make fun of, so I have no inspiration.  *sigh*  BUT, Binks also watched this movie and agrees that it is, indeed, awesome.  It really is.  Y’all should go and watch it while it’s still playing in theaters.  Anyway, while pondering what to do about my writer’s block, I remembered what a terrific job Binks did with her review of The Duchess in the newsletter some time ago.  Remember how she made all these insightful analyses about women and self-expression?  Don’t you feel like Binks would do a similarly terrific job with Doubt?  I think we should all peer pressure Binks into writing the review for Doubt so that I can chillax to the max.

Please please please Binks write the review for Doubt!

While Binks contemplates whether she should strangle me now or later, I’d like to invite anyone else interested in reviewing a movie to please send your ideas along.  Any movie is okay as long as it’s not rated R. Or NC-17. Or pornographic. Don’t complain to me, I didn’t make the laws.  Also, it would ideally be a movie that most GBD peepz can access – either by going to the theater or by renting, borrowing from a library, etc.

In exchange for writing a review, you will have my eternal gratitude.  If that’s not enough, I’m willing to negotiate the rights to my first-born.

And here are the trailers!

And yes…I know. Today is Tuesday. “Where’s News Day Tuesday?” you ask. Swishing around my brain somewhere. Once I fish it out, I’ll post it. 😉

  6. Kathy Says:

    My dear Binks, asking you publicly was all part of the plan. Magnifies the pressure.

    Are you still going to watch the play version too? You would have aaaaaaall the time in the world to review Doubt Binks. There’s no due date. This isn’t school. lol. School. I remember those days.

    Muchisimas gracias Binks! Pero no tienes escribir el review. Yo entiendo. Eres una estudiante muy ocupada. Estoy haciendo un chiste, bien? 😉 (I hope that made sense. lol.)

  7. taylor nikole Says:

    binks.. think about it…
    its not like that twilight review one
    where i woke up and saw TAYLOR NIKOLE!!!
    and then she was like Ohhh btw the article is like due… ummmm in a day kthnx :-p
    jk jk kathyy
    the shout outs are always appreciated

  8. Kathy Says:

    lol…I remember that. I’m sorry Taylor Nikole. That due date was kind of sudden. If it makes you feel better, I was neither planning to watch Twilight nor write a review about it. Until Tabby came along. Tabby!

    Seriously…I need to write the news. Tuesday is fading fast. lol.

  9. taylor nikole Says:

    well its not like when i emailed kendra on sunday asking if i could do a review….
    and she said yeah… then i asked when she wanted it…
    she said sunday night….
    and then i asked what sunday?
    and shes like “ohhh tonight is sunday”
    although that one wasn’t public… till now :-p
    get me 30 minutes before a review is due 😀
    and you win the gold!

    hmmm i have to write a review tonight 😦
    for bride wars for the school paper blahhh

    “Until Tabby came along. Tabby!”

    heheh just:

  10. Chris Says:

    Bravo! *applauds Kathy* you managed to avoid doing a review, quite cleverly may I add 😉

    Binks, you really have a lot to do now haha

    …do anyone have chocolate cake?….ANYONE?

  11. taylor nikole Says:

    ohh i didn’t finish
    cause that makes kendra look pushy 😀
    it was my choice to write it that night hahah

  12. jessica f Says:

    oo yummies cake. i wish i had some. 😛

    @tay – you’re like a diamond- ya shine under pressure. hahaha ok that was corny. good job lil one.

  13. taylor nikole Says:

    hahah AWWWWWWWW JESS 😀
    not corny
    it was sweet LOL

  14. jessicaf Says:

    aww yay! i hate being corny, but often find that i am. lol

  15. Kathy Says:

    Thank you Chris. *bows* I try.

    And that was a splendid simile Jessica F. Don’t be afraid of being corny or cheesy because those two things together make Doritos. And Cheetos. 😉

  16. jessicaf Says:

    @Kathy. I seriously just LOL-ed when I read that Cheeto and Dorito line. Ahh my GBD folks, how you all make my days better. Thank you Kathy! 🙂

  17. Binks Says:
