The Loft...

I love a good mystery, so when I saw the trailer for The Loft I admit I got excited.

I mean seriously who doesn't like a good whodunnit especially when it involves James Marsden? ;-)

Well from the little knowledge I had before watching it I was surprised at what it was really about.

**SPOILER ALERT** Please stop reading here if you don't want it to be spoiled for you.

Alright so I was not expecting it to be about a group of guy friends that were cheating on their wives and get a loft to have a place to do so secretly. And being the cheater despise-r that I am that kind of put a bad taste in my mouth (yes I know it's just a movie but it's an all too real situation that I've witnessed ruin people's lives) however I was able to look past that when the wives seemed to be catching on to what was happening. I was waiting for the killer to be revealed as being one of the wives but was  NOT expecting for 4 of the friends to be setting up the 5th because he slept with 1 of their wives, another's sister, and set up another one with a prostitute! So it definitely threw me for a loop in that aspect.

Okay so here's my recap...some guys decide they want to cheat on their wives and get a bright idea to share a loft so they can take their mistresses, etc. there and have less of a chance of getting caught. So one girl gets caught up and starts feeling something for one of the cheaters and he "breaks up with her"so she spasses out and takes some pills. Another of the friends who didn't actually cheat on his wife but wanted to was recorded all of the adultery unbeknownst to anyone else. He liked this particular girl but of course she didn't like him well when she got broken up with he comes to her side at the loft where the other cheater left her and comforts her with a glass of wine which he drugs. She passes out he carries her to the bed and gives her an injection that was supposed to kill her without leaving a trace only it didn't work but he didn't know that then. So he staged it as if she overdosed on pills and wine and killed herself and forged a note to the other cheater. When the other 3 friends find her they blamed the main cheater and decide to make it more dramatic and drugged that friend and handcuffed him with the dead girl on the bed one of the crazy ones slit her wrist (this is what killed her). They call the cops who questions everyone and almost pinned murder on the main cheater until another friend pieces things together and the non-cheater that attempted to kill the girl actually kills himself at the end....and yeah that's pretty much the jist of it.

Another TV show review but it's a good one!!

If you have Hulu or Netflix then you are probably like the rest of us and like finding a TV series that you can watch marathon style and if this describes you then you'll want to hear about this TV show.

It's called The Last Man on Earth and it's a comedy that airs on Fox. It's set in a post cataclysmic world where Phil Miller is the only survivor. It received 8.1 out of 10 stars on IMDb and 7.8 out of 10 stars on It can sometimes be a little crude humor and is definitely NOT a show for the family to watch together unless your kids are grown ups too. I won't go too much into the plot of the show but I will say it had me laughing from the beginning of episode 1.

Anyway if you're interested check out the show's page on the FOX website:

Once Upon a Time...

Okay, so I know this ones not really a "cinema" but I love it nonetheless. It airs Sundays on ABC (check your local listing for time).

In this television series fairy tales and reality coincide. It's amazing to see each character be introduced in the "real world" and to see how they are connected to the next character and the "fairy tale realm". Some of the main characters include Snow White and Prince Charming, The Evil Queen from Snow White, Captain Hook, Belle (from Beauty and the Beast), The Beast who is also Rumpelstiltskin, and the Crocodile. These characters were introduced first as well as Snow White and Prince Charming's daughter (pictured above). Well the Evil Queen cast a spell over everyone and it traps them in a town called Storybrooke, Maine...and that's only the beginning. I watch it faithfully and will continue to do so for as long as it is on TV.

I know it's not a new release or anything like that but it's worth mentioning that Divergent is a very good movie and with the release of Insurgent today...I cannot wait to go see it.

The movies are science fiction action film, based on the Divergent Trilogy, a book series written by American author Veronica Roth. The first of the series Divergent was released on March 21, 2014.

Plot for Divergent from Wikipedia:

In a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues, Tris Prior is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader to destroy all Divergents, Tris must learn to trust in the mysterious Four and together they must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it's too late.

The film includes a number of well-known actors/actresses including Shailene WoodleyTheo JamesTony Goldwyn (yes that's right...President Fitz from Scandal on ABC),  Mekhi PhiferZoë Kravitz.

From what I've read about the newest released Insurgent the likes of Naomi Watts and Octavia Spencer (just to name a few) will be joining the already great cast.

If you've seen it already by the time you read this PLEASE no spoiler alerts. As I won't try to give after I see it. Enjoy your day!

Cinemas (movies)...simplified

As the blog title suggests I will be simplifying movies and of course giving my opinion on them. For example (and my reply of this is WAY better in person) Open Water. I'm not sure if you remember that  and don't blame you at all if you don't it was one of the least interesting movies my eyes have ever mirrored to my brain. A waste of time that I will NEVER be able to get back. A man and woman are scuba diving with a team. They go farther than they are supposed to and end up getting left. They argue and get mad at each other and while floating in the middle of an ocean decide to "not speak to each other". But since they had nowhere to go they just floated back to back. They fall asleep and end up floating away from each other then get eaten by sharks. The End. It was very...bland. Like eating a half cooked potato with no seasoning, no utensils, no condiments or anything else that would make it even halfway pleasing to our taste buds. But hey there may be some that like it (not sure why) but to each their own.

Anyway  I'll stop there since this was just supposed to be an example of what I mean by saying simplified cinemas. Oh and also I'll sometimes be sharing movies I'm excited to see as well as ones I don't care to see because the trailer made me yawn. Well I hope you will be sticking around for my entries. See ya!
