Movies/TV
Doctor Who - I've now watched every DW episode there is of the newer seasons and some of the classics as well. Celery. My favorite Doctor is Eleven. How 'bout you?

Mom's Night Out  - It was very funny. I think I could've enjoyed it more than I did though if I'd let myself...or maybe I just prefer some things over comedy.

Once Upon A Time - I love season three. I love that they're in Neverland. I love watching them while I do math and drink tea. It's just nice.

Hamlet (2009) - Patrick Stewart is Claudius and David Tennant is Hamlet and I love it.

*Father of the Bride (1991) - It's so funny and dear.

Maleficent - There were some things that could have been better but it was very enjoyable, and there were so many awesome moments. Angelina Jolie is cool.

  1. I just love Mom's Night Out! I saw it twice. Me, I just love comedies:) were there any major own sides on Maleficent? I'm considering seeing it, is it worth my money? BTW: I really love these monthly posts you do!

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! The rest of my family that saw it thought it was great. :)
      So, Maleficent: I think I'd give it 3 and 1/2 stars (out of five). My two sisters and my mom and I all enjoyed it a lot...it was so imaginative (the Fair-Land/fairyland) which is something that makes any movie entertaining (for me anyway). There were a couple of times when the transitions between scenes weren't as clear as they could have been but it wasn't a big problem for understanding what's going on (except one thing which apparently my sister didn't get until later). I really like Angelina Jolie and she has the coolest costume (if you can call horns and stuff like that a costume). Basically, I found it very enjoyable but it's not the best in terms of clearly told stories and perfectly satisfying blanks (I don't want to spoil anything). What I liked of it was the fantasy and the fairy tail part, Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, purely cool moments that make certain people I know cheer in the movie theater (haha), and a decently good ending. Also the horns. The horns are awesome.
      Thanks Christy! I'm so glad you like them. :)

    1. Hi Abigail! I think it's a great family movie, I don't remember any bad words or anything like that and there's nothing that I remember that wouldn't be appropriate (it's PG for a mild car chase as far as I can tell). Most of my family went together to see it and we had a good time (the youngest person is thirteen). It's hilariously funny with few breaks in between so if you like comedies - great! :)

  3. Ready for season 8 of Doctor Who now? I can hardly wait! My favorite Doctor is Eleven too -- except, Ten is also my favorite. I couldn't choose between them. :P

    Glad you enjoyed Mom's Night Out and Maleficent alright, I'd like to see both of them sometime. And that Hamlet. :)

    1. Haha, yeah. :) Actually what I wrote up there isn't perfectly true, I forgot I haven't seen Day of the Doctor yet (that's the only one though). Yeah, Ten - my sister likes him best too, along with Eleven. ;)

      That Hamlet was great! Mom's Night Out was okay...Maleficent was cool. :)

    3. Yeah, I'm waiting for a good time. :) I'm so glad you hear you liked it so much! I'm looking forward to it. :)

  6. I love that version of Hamlet! Has one of the best Horatios ever. And Patrick Stewart is possibly the scariest Claudius I've seen -- so cold and intelligent. Magnificent. I liked Tennant's Hamlet quite well too, though I didn't care for the Laertes, and the Ophelia was okay.

    1. I'm glad you like it too. :) Yes, I particularly noticed Horatio in this version and liked him a lot. Patrick Stewart is awesome. I agree, I didn't care for Laertes much either.
