  1. I don't know what it is about this season, but I find my interest really waning. I think it's the contestants; I don't find any of them truly engaging, and while a few are some what likable, I don't find myself actively rooting for them. I don't know what it is about the race car driver, to me he comes across as smarmy and a bit creepy. I haven't enjoyed any of his dances nor do I like the person that is presented in the pre-dance packages. Most of the dances were extremely underwhelming; also I think we can see who the powers that be want in the show based on who "w
  2. The trailer pretty much gave it away (to anyone who was paying attention that is); two friends who saw trailer and had no knowledge of the reference material or plot (or that there was even a movie with Pratt and Lawrence) turned to me and said
  3. The trailer makes it seem like the movie is having an identity crisis; it doesn't know what it wants to be. And it makes me NOT want to see it.
  4. "Who's this guy?" cracks me up every time. I never liked Colbie Smulders on How I Met Your Mother, but I adore her as Maria Hill.
  5. Have you tried NYX concealers? I find their products work well and are extremely reasonably priced. You can find their products in some Target, CVS Pharmacy, and Ulta locations; they also have stores in some malls.
  6. Thanks to a BookBub find I picked up The Red Knight (for a whopping 99-cents) a few weeks ago and just now settled in to read it. I'm only a 100-pages in, but so far I like it; I especially like world building (which is a pseudo medieval society, complete with Crusaders and magic). After that I have the first Detective Lavender book, The Heiress of Linn Hagh - it's a regency era mystery - and comes highly recommended by several people based on my enjoyment of the Sebastian St. Cyr books by C.S. Harris (books that I describe as Mr. Bond meets Mr. Darcy). Ooooh, this sounds good
  7. I'm glad they're getting it out of the way right off the bat (much like Bindi and Crocodile Rock)
  8. All the Marvel movies have some amazing fight choreography, but it seems that the best have been in the Captain America movies. I know it's a television show, but Netflix's Daredevil has some amazing fight sequences. And how can one discuss fight scenes without mention The Forbidden Kingdom's fight between Jackie Chan and Jet Li.
  9. And I adore everything about Tangled, but I really love the "I've Got a Dream" sequence. it just cracks me up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbVlGESh9Mc
  10. I can't not watch the elevator fight scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And any gun kata scene from Equilibrium; especially the last one.
  11. She has the most amazing complexion ..... what gorgeous skin.
  12. NYX Retractable Eye Liner; you can find the brand at some CVS stores as well as some Ulta shops. They also have stores in several malls, and of course you can order via their website. I really like the eye liners and eye shadows; I find they work well, having good staying power, and are very reasonably priced.
  13. I recently received some NYX liner crayons and they work really well for the inner rims of my eyes; glides on easily (I do warm up on the back of my hand with a few swipes first) so there is no tugging, color is pretty saturated, lasts all day, and no irritation. I like mixing the colors, using black for the tightline and then a color for the upper lid (near the lash line) and the waterline which really plays ups the color in my eyes (which are hazel and range from green to blueish grey).
  14. The only way I would like to see a Black Widow film (frankly, I find her character rather boring and Scarlett Johansson weak when given leading roles; she's perfectly fine as a supporting actor/character) is if they managed to have her team up with Bucky as they did in the comics (when they were hunting down Hydra sleeper operatives).
  15. After sitting on my Kindle for months and being on my "I gotta get around to read it" list for years, I finally started reading Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams.
