This week has been a little erratic with my entertainment quota. I've been swamped with work and consequently, things took a bit of a hit this week. However, I'm not going to let you down, so let's get this party started!
The Book Roundup
I finished Such A Pretty Fat by Jen Lancaster and all I can say now is FINISH THE NEXT BOOK JEN. She's currently running behind on the deadline for her 4th book, but she posted a list of recommended reading on her blog this week. Which means that my desired reading list just got a WHOLE LOT LONGER. I currently have about 15 books on my bedside table that I want to read. However, I have now decided that this week I am tackling, Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. Check back next week to see if I got sucked in like the rest of my homies.
The T.V. Roundup
I finished up Seasons 1 & 2 of Big Love and I am thoroughly hooked. Season 3 doesn't start on HBO until January, which is a good thing. Most of my Fall T.V. line up starts in 2 weeks, so I'll be knee deep in reviewing a LOT of t.v. in the upcoming weeks. Too much I'm sure.
The Movie Roundup
I'm heading out to the theaters to catch some new releases this week, but I caught the following flicks on Starz this week.
1. The Hoax - This is the Richard Gere film where he plays Clifford Irving, the guy who wrote the "authorized" auto-biography of Howard Hughes. Pretty decent film and it's based on a true story.
2. Superbad - I end up watching movies like this when hubby & I are home on a Friday night and he has the remote. I do not consider myself to be easily offended in any way, but this movie pushed the limit on what I'll watch. Excessive bad language and derogatory depictions of women are just the beginning of what I despised about this film. I'll not see it again and I encourage you not to waste your time. And let me further say that I have enjoyed several of Judd Apatow's other films. This one just sucked.
3. Sixteen Candles - Ah, a trip down memory lane. Jake Ryan is so hunky. If you've never seen this movie, what are you waiting for?
And that wraps up this week's roundup. Do you have any recommendations for me? Is there something out there that you've discovered that I need to know about? Please share. Unless it's a book, because my list runneth over. Well, ok, I might have room for a few more book suggestions.
