This isn’t going to be a long review, but I just wanted to say that this past Saturday I watched the film Tomb Raider and I loved it. But, I also felt that the actress playing Lara Croft owned the character in her own way. She was playing herself in a Lara Croft film rather than her actually being Lara Croft. Technically she wasn’t believable as Lara, but is a bad ass in her own right to make the movie really good. There were a few times I thought she was going to fall and the scenes on the island looked and felt just like in the game. There were even a bit of some scary scenes later on…(trying not to do spoilers)…and I had to hide in my popcorn. ^^;;
I give it 4 1/2 stars out of 5.

…Happy Single’s Awareness Day! Well, actually it is tomorrow officially and then unofficially it is celebrated whenever the hell you feel like in February. I plan on officially celebrating on Saturday. I am having a cheat day and I had ordered fancy cakes from a bakery a few weeks ago to be delivered. Truth be told though, have been cheating here and there and only lost a few pounds and inches. Imagine if I got rid of all the temptation how really great I would be doing!
I have not faltered from my exercise routine, except last Friday I did not attend my dance class, but this was because it was my uncle’s birthday and I had to cook and stuff. I was told two days before that it was being held at my place. Apparently this is a thing that is done in my family and in itself is a tradition. If this is a tradition you would think I would anticipate it better, but I did not remember my uncle’s birthday. Yes, that sounds horrible, but I have a lot on my plate in life right now.
After this week I am going to really buckle down…you know before Easter rolls around. ^_^;;
The sweets are too good and that is all my brain keeps screaming at me especially when a holiday like this is around makes it worse. This is not just a battle, but this is a war that I must win at all costs. I refuse to celebrate Valentine’s Day since I am single and I have a valid reason for being cynical today. The flowers, candy, balloons, couples PDA, and yes even television betrays me with a plethora of romance films. In these romance films there are five set reused plots that are used over and over again making these movies very predictable. Who ever watches these should get a gold star and a merit badge, because I do not know how they can have the time, brain capacity, or attention span to watch them. If it makes you happy to watch them good for you and all that jazz, but they are not for me and they are not my cup of tea. If by chance someone does not reuse one of the five reusable plots, and does a new love story plot that is not predictable, I would like to know about it and I might give it a watch.
I took a handful of film classes while I was in college and now I can see stuff in film and television that the critics see. This has either ruined watching film/TV for me or it has enhanced it because now I see things differently because of my experiences from those classes. If you are serious about being in the film business or doing television and you either want to learn or take some classes be warned. You’ll never look at film or television shows again in the same way.
Romance is way overrated and being single can be a great thing! You can do whatever you want and when you want! You do not have to worry about considering the other person or compromising. Sure, there are down sides to being single too like being lonely or wanting the touch of another. There are also down sides to being in a relationship too. There are pros and cons with anything. If you are single you have no ties to anyone and can do anything. Love yourself and celebrate it and be grateful and happy about the body you are in. Have fun with being single and if you are with that special someone celebrate and cherish each other everyday and not just on this holiday that was created by the card, flower, and candy companies. Life is short kids…live every moment like it is your last!
