Ponyo - Movie

Ponyo was a heartfelt tale of true love between a 5 year old boy and his gold fish. Yes if you didn't guess by that into it is indeed Japanese. The same people who did Spirited away made this movie. It was oddly good and yet very very surreal. I don't see any problems with kids watching it. I do however think that I did not do enough LSD (Ok I didn't do any LSD) to fully wrap my brain around this film.

Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog - Movie

Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog - Movie. I love this movie. Bills dad even watched it all the way through. He almost never watches a movie all the way through without getting up for some reason. I love Neal Patrick Harris. I grew up watching Doogie Howser, MD. If Wesley Crusher was my first crush Doogie would have been his competition.

In Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog Neal Patrick Harris is the "bad guy" who really has a good guy message if you ask me. Stop being a sheep and look at the world with eyes wide open. Treat the problems don't treat the symptoms. Course he looks up to the wrong people and tries to fix the problems by taking over the world. But I love it and his mad scientist outfit in the end really rocks. I want one.

Come Hell or High Water by Michele Bardsley

Come Hell or High Water by Michele Bardsley. Romance. Pages - 277. This book in the Broken Heart novels was good but seemed to be lacking something. Usually I can't put them down. This time it took me a week to read. I still can't wait for the next book to come out. Broken Heart is probably my favorite fiction town in the USA.

Planet 51 - PG Movie

Planet 51 - Movie. Released 2009. PG. Fun with lots of little things in it for the adults. Really shows how a programmers expectations can change how a program works. A Human astronaut lands on Planet 51 thinking it was uninhabited and full of rocks only to learn he had faulty info. Instead he finds himself surrounded by a population who thinks he's come to take over their world and eat their organs. Sounds like the plot to a horror movie but it had me laughing out loud. It's currently being streamed directly to a puter via netflix.

Running with the Pack - anthology

Running with the Pack - anthology. Science Fiction. Pages 339. I was highly disappointed with this book. I really wanted to love it since several of my favorite authors have short stories in it. I really wanted to love it since there were several gay couples in it. I wanted to love it since there were a lot of interesting concepts and relevant current events in it. I struggled to read this book. My recommendation Don't Bother.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Movie

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Movie. PG. Adult or child this movie is great. It has sight gags that took me right back to my childhood. It had silly monkeys and flying food. Who wouldn't want to make snow angels in ice cream. Watch the screen carefully and you'll find all kinds of inside jokes.

Moon Sworn by Keri Arthur

Moon Sworn by Keri Arthur. Science Fiction. Pages 359. Riley Jenkins is a guardian and she's hating almost every moment of it. People want her dead, Some of her loved ones have died, and she desperately wants to have a nice quiet life with her vampire sweetie. This does have a steamy romantic side to it so if you're strict on the no no sex in your books then pass this one on by. If you like a well written adult scene then these are a must read.

Despicable Me - Cartoon Movie

Despicable Me - Cartoon Movie. I give this one an A. We saw it in 3D but didn't really need too. There were a few jokes that were aimed at the adults which made us happy. Disney is trying to be a bit more like Pixar. Basically an evil genius ends up with three kids and goes about trying to use them to achieve his evil genius goals.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame Smith

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame Smith. Teen Fiction. This was great. It was almost ruined by the fact that it was so close to Jane Austen's style of writing but I managed to overcome that fact and read it through enjoying the slaying of zombies and the trapping of zombies. Makes me eager to get to sense and sensibility and sea monsters. Sorry I haven't gotten to it yet. I'm putting android Karenina on my b-day/xmas list. One question I have is on the back of the hard cover of PPZ it says now with 30% more zombies. I wonder if you count through if they actually replaced some of the numbers to give you more zombies. Probably not.
