Oscar Predictions, 2014

I look forward to the Oscars all year and I'm thrilled Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the 86th Academy Awards. She is sincerely funny, charming and witty. She did a fantastic job back in 2007 and I have no doubt she'll deliver with flying colors yet again. I'm so excited for the fashion, the jokes, the skits, the fun surprises (if any) and last but certainly not least, the big winners of the night. Below you will see my predictions of who I feel will go home with Oscar himself. Take a look...

And the Oscar goes to... 

 Best Actor in a Leading Role:
Matthew McConaughey - Dallas Buyers Club
(Although I wouldn't be surprised if it went to Leonardo DiCaprio)

Best Actress in a Leading Role:

Best Actor in a Supporting Role:
Jared Leto - Dallas Buyers Club

Best Actress in a Supporting Role:
Lupita Nyong'o 12 Years a Slave

Best Director:
- Gravity

Best Picture: 
12 Years a Slave
(Although I'd prefer American Hustle to win instead)

There you have it ladies and gents.  MY predictions for the big night.  For a full list of the nominees click here.  The floor is now yours.  Share with me your thoughts on who YOU think will be the big winners of the evening...

Endless Love Review

"Say Goodbye to Innocence" is the movie's tag line, more like say goodbye to the plot.  As long as you don't think too much about it you have a good chance of enjoying this movie for what it intended to be - a passionate love story.  And even though this remake is far superior to the original, it's still easily forgettable, which is unfortunate because I really wanted to love this movie, but I suppose I'll settle for: "meh, it was alright." Endless Love is based on a novel, but its story bears little resemblance to the book, which is fine by me because that story-line was unforgivably lame.

We begin our story at the end of senior year of high school where we are introduced to our two love birds. David Elliot () who is a delinquent valet at a ritzy hotel has had his eye on his beautiful, rich classmate Jade Butterfield () for four years. He finally gets the nerve to talk to her when her family pays a visit to the hotel where David works. From there the two embark on a summer romance and fall madly in love. Of course this goes against the wishes of Jade’s father Hugh (), cue the drama. If daddy has his way, Jade will follow him into medicine and he's not about to let some blue collar, bum put that in jeopardy. Faster than you can say move over Edward and Bella, David and daddy go head to head in a heated battle that is destined to end with David behind bars. Regardless, David and Jade will stop at nothing to be together (awe).

Pettyfer and Wilde aren’t asked to do much other than show up and look pretty for the camera and give speeches about what love means to them. At seventeen, of course they know all about it. I do love how the two end up making each other better people though. Jade helps David realize his true potential, while David helps Jade loosen up and enjoy life. But the story, as a whole, is a bit of a hot mess. After their first encounter we're made to believe they're already madly in love (hmmm). Alas, I felt there were some strong performances, which helped mask some of the ridiculousness. I didn't love this movie, however, I didn't hate it either. Would I watch it again if it was on TV?... sure, why not.

Movie Title Breakup

Source: Reddit

In case you're living under a rock, today is Valentine's Day. A very commercialized, pointless holiday (and by pointless I mean, if I don't get the day off, it's not a "real" holiday). So while there is an abundance of love in the air (awe...), here's a creative video for all the haters who loath this day. When watching this video keep in mind this whole convo. is nothing but movie titles. Check it out!
While the conversation isn't the most pleasant and can feel a bit awkward, it's still pretty fun and cool. So whether you're single, married, dating someone special, I want to wish you all a fabulous Valentine's Day.
