24 Thoughts on Disney’s “Moana”

Posted on December 17th, 2016

Our family went to see Moana the day after I saw Fantastic Beasts, so it was a fully magical weekend for me, cinema-wise. Some thoughts on Disney’s latest epic: It’s a musical! I’d only seen trailer dialogue, so I didn’t realize this (even though I should have) until I was already watching it. Songs make me […]

17 Thoughts on “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

Posted on December 5th, 2016

As with the books… it’s been a while since I reviewed a movie too, huh? Might be rusty. Hence, the numbered list/crutch. Here goes! (No spoilers, I promise.) J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them… Newt Scamander, young magizoologist, comes to New York City from England, sometime in the 1920s, just as a […]

BANG Double Feature Review: The Imitation Game + Into The Woods

Posted on January 8th, 2015

Dilovely had herself TWO MOVIE DATES over the holidays, y’all. Both are still kinda recent (released in Canada on Christmas Day, only two weeks ago!), so I figured I could still say a few words. After all, it’s been ages since I reviewed a movie. (It’s the lack of frequency and/or freshness. That is to say, for example, […]

BANG Book Review: 9-Volume Bookstravaganza!

Posted on August 15th, 2013

{Tra la, this post was supposed to be finished and posted OVER A WEEK AGO. Ridonculous. Had several rough nights with congested baby, also working on E methodically testing every boundary he can think of, especially the one where he tries to get us to do his bidding by being a whine-meister. Boo, excuses.} Sooo… […]

Glennon Melton, Vampire Weekend, Iron Man 3, and other news bites.

Posted on June 11th, 2013

I had a grand plan to craft a beautiful essay, rife with linkativity, proving the essential similarity of these three items: Glennon Doyle Melton’s book Carry On, Warrior, Vampire Weekend’s new album “Modern Vampires of the City”, And Iron Man 3. You see, this one time, in high school, I got perfect on an essay. […]

BANG Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

Posted on May 16th, 2013

I read a high-school copy of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald in Monteverde, Costa Rica, at my host family’s house, during a teaching internship. I also read I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings and The Bluest Eye, but The Great Gatsby was the most incongruous story in a place where the houses […]

BANG Movie Review: 42

Posted on April 25th, 2013

Watching 42, it dawned on me that, for a person who can’t hit a baseball to save my life, I have seen – and enjoyed – a goodly number of baseball movies. (The Natural, Bull Durham, Stealing Home, Field of Dreams, A League of Their Own, and Moneyball – only a drop in the bucket […]

A Review of All Things Misérables

Posted on March 7th, 2013

So I finally got to see the new Les Mis movie in mid-February, when it had been in theatres for a month and a half. This is rather a travesty. I’m a musical geek. I could sing you most of the soundtracks for about a dozen different musicals.* I was also a French major; I […]

Mysterious Movie Ratings

Posted on November 5th, 2012

Do you ever wonder how films get their ratings? Especially kids’ movies. There seem to be some inconsistencies in the system. For your edification, the Motion Picture Association of America says the following about G and PG movies: G — General Audiences. All Ages Admitted. A G-rated motion picture contains nothing in theme, language, nudity, […]

Evidence that after seven years of marriage, my Hubbibi and I are OLD

Posted on August 27th, 2012

Hi everyone, Thanks for all your good wishes! Sean and I had our li’l getaway, and it was really, really nice. AND, it was perfect for retirees.                Huh? We went to check in at our B&B, which is a beautiful house in the country run by a very nice guy named Shane. It has a […]
