Hey Stargazers! You may be wondering what's with all the silence at the Reel Whore. To put it simply, my blogging time has been crushed by my own watching, reading and sulking. Specifically:
I've had the privilege to get two sneak preview tickets this week. I say privilege because this time last year I had seen about ten more sneak peeks than to date this year. Scandalous! Anyways, I have already seen The Forbidden Kingdom and unless something crazy happens will be seeing Forgetting Sarah Marshall tonight. Clear your calendars for tomorrow, quality reviews forthcoming.
In other watching news, post-strike TV has returned so my DVR is overflowing. We got brand new Bones this week.
Aside from my weekly comics, I have been skulking around my fellow bloggers' sites. These are just a few of the many posts worth your time:
Ever seen the movie Idiocracy? What?! Never heard of it? Well, here's 5 Great Things About Idiocracy that'll put this next on your Q.
Friend Mouse found a great list of the 50 Greatest Television Shows of All Time at Empire Online. I was sad that Bones didn't make the cut, but many of my faves did. I'm a fan of about 20 of these shows, there's 4 I'd love to see and 1 that should be nowhere near this list. Can you figure out which ones?
Like East Asian cinema? Not sure what it is? Well, there's A Week of Recent East Asian Cinema just waiting for you. I haven't read all these posts, but I'll be back there once I'm finished here.
In a bit of a blog regurgitation, Invisible Woman re-posted an article from Cracked.com that she found thanks to one of her blog buddies posts. Now I am passing along this story to you. It's Hollywood's 6 Favorite Offensive Stereotypes. It's funny (and sad) because it's true.
Enjoy horror movies like yours truly? Invasion of the B Movies has 30 Days of Horror happening right now. Most recent is Day 16: The Thing. Jump on board before you miss out!
The Sirens news is a little disappointing but that's not what has me sulking. Those who know me from my pre-blog days should remember the sadness and anger associated with this time of year. For those who don't know, I thought I was ready to open up, but I can't bring myself to do so.
If I can get a grip on my emotions I will try to re-post my painful memories soon.
