Aloha

How excited are you about this? It’s your two most favorite girl crushes Emma Stone + Rachel McAdams + Bradley Cooper + Bill Murray. It could be awful (and it is or was, according to the Sony hack leaked emails), but it’s still gonna be good because of all the pretty faces. And the trailer actually makes it look like it’ll be fun (because Bill Murray).

 

 

Seen anything good lately?

P.S. Two movies I’d recommend to a friend.

About Time

about-time-hamptions-film-festival-opener

I don’t know what it is about Rachel McAdams and time travel movies, but girlfriend totally nails it. Am I right? The Time Traveler’s Wife is maybe my favorite book – maybe – and the movie was superb enough to satisfy me even though, of course, having read the book about 5 times, I didn’t think the screen version quite did it justice. Though the gloriousness that is Eric Bana helped reconcile that a bit.

While the leading man in About Time might not seem as scrumptious, I promise you: he’s the perfect recipe of funny, clumsy goof + adoring brother and son + and doting husband/father, providing a real love story that is charmingly sincere and beautiful and heart-achingly romantic. Thus, I proclaim that you have to see this movie. I’d heard absolutely nothing about it before I recorded it while sick and watched it on the couch surrounded by balled up tissues, covered in blankets with Baxter sleeping on my icy toes. I’ll warn you in advance that it’s not just the love story that’ll get you — the relationship of the main character, Tim, with his affable father (played by the phenomenal Bill Nighy), is sure to have you in tears. Ugly tears. The kind that make you reach for the Kleenex because you need to blow your nose, flu or not. I’m telling you, friends. It’ll happen. But it’s good.

Here’s the trailer:

The Limited + Scandal

Everyone knows Olivia Pope’s got style. If you think you can handle copious amounts of red wine around a lot of cream, white and beige clothes, you’ll surely want to scoop up pieces from the new Scandal-inspired collection of womenswear later this month at The Limited.  The collaboration partnered leading lady Kerry Washington with her brilliant costume designer Lyn Paolo so you know it’s gonna be fierce.  I think it’s going to be a smashing success and can’t wait to see it. There’s gotta be an over-sized white coat, right?

Enough Said

Last weekend Mumbles and I stumbled upon the movie Enough Said.  We’ll watch anything with a good Rotten Tomatoes score and this one got a whopping 96%.  That’s a guaranteed good time, is what that is.  And it was.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is so relatable and James Gandolfini was super lovable.  I feel like we’re watching all these grown up movies lately (like this one, which we LOVED and also starred Toni Collette) and even though this was labeled a romantic comedy, I didn’t feel sheepish wondering if Mumbles was hating it the entire time – it was smart and funny and we both laughed out loud more than once.

“Hey”

My coworker showed me this awesome cat video (I know, right? What it is about cat videos that are so endlessly hilarious?) This one is no exception — the cat that says “hey:”

I was almost in tears (especially when it zooms in and softly says “hey”) and then I felt pathetic because all those “hey”s reminded me of the sappy Felicity series final tribute. Did you ever watch that show? LOVED it!

Happy Friday, friends!

 

P.S. Team Ben or Team Noel?
