An Irish immigrant Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) in 1950s New York moves to an all-female boarding house owned by the tenacious Ms. Kehoe (Julie Walters), falls for a tough Italian plumber named Tony (Emory Cohen) but faces temptation from another man named Jim Farrell (Domhnall Gleeson) when she returns to her homeland for a visit to attend to a family emergency.
This is a continuation of what I started here.
So last weekend in the U.S. was Thanksgiving and with that comes the annual shopping extravaganza that is Black Friday and to a lesser extent Cyber Monday. Luckily retailers in Canada have begun to adopt this tradition and have adopted similar type sales of their own. I do admit to partaking in some of these sales in the past but I can’t say that I have this year and I’m glad I did. I’ve often heard of the craziness that occurs down there, in the U.S., during that time and I could be wrong but I’ve never heard of that happening in Canada. For those who stayed away or for those who just want some entertainment, I’ve posted some videos of general Black Friday craziness. I’m not sure if they’re all of this year but it doesn’t really matter.
Since we’ve reached the first day of December, it seemed like as good of a time as any to remind or inform you all that my birthday is on December 24th (or Christmas Eve if you didn’t know). So to be a little self-centered, I will post a different Birthday song every day until the big day, being my Birthday. If you aren’t interested in this, then you can maybe use it as a countdown to Christmas or something.
To give credit to certain famous movie props, my fellow Ottawa friends at assholeswatchingmovies.com have written a retrospective on classic movie props and their significance in the films in which they appeared. It is definitely an interesting read for those wanting a quick film history lesson. Just think where your favorite film would be without the props in it. To read their post, click on the link below.
So Fallout 4 was released exactly two weeks ago. It is an amazing game that I have invested countless hours playing ever since I got it the day it was released for my PS4. I also got the Pip-Boy edition which is still insanely cool.
I’ve been a big fan of the Power Rangers all my life. I talked about it briefly here. But for those who have seen some of it and just need a refresher or for those who haven’t seen any and want to learn more, here is an insightful video below.
How many did you miss? I will admit to having missed a few.
In 2001, editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber) of The Boston Globe assigns a team of journalists to investigate allegations against John Geoghan, an unfrocked priest accused of molesting more than 80 boys. Led by editor Walter “Robby” Robinson (Michael Keaton), reporters Michael Rezendes (Mark Ruffalo), Matt Carroll (Brian d’Arcy James) and Sacha Pfeiffer (Rachel McAdams) interview victims and try to unseal sensitive documents. The reporters make it their mission to provide proof of a cover-up of sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church.
Recently, one of my friends told me about the Youtube channel called Cracked (you probably have heard of it). They have many videos on their channel about a lot of different things. They also have video series about a lot of different things but this post will focus on one of their series, After Hours, which is a bunch of people who meet up in different places (as far as I’ve seen and I haven’t seen them all) discussing and debating things. I found their discussions/debates about movie stuff to be very interesting and enlightening. So much so that I’ve put a few of the videos (there’s a lot more) below:
