I have been terrible about posting on the blog but I did move across the country and then have to find a new place and then find jobs and then a dog and other things and it’s taken a backseat unfortunately. I found myself in Florida earlier this week and of course Double Daddy comes on tv when I’m totally not prepared with a computer or camera but I watched it and enjoyed it anyway. Now I’m going to try and remember what happened in it for your enjoyment. I’m taking photos from the internet so the quality/size will be all over the place.
Chadd and Carla came over to find a tv Christmas movie to watch before we pack up our tv for the move.
We’ve chosen Kristin’s Christmas Past starring Shiri Appleby from Roswell as a “smart, sassy 30 year old woman” (says the guide). Time travel and Christmas will be present. Rayanne from My So Called Life is in this so Chadd and Carla are psyched. A girl who may or may not have a show on the Disney Channel could also be in this (there is some debate as to whether this is the correct spelling of her name).
Pretty much everyone who knows me knows how obsessed I was with 90210 from the time it premiered until I left for college. In college it was so lame but of course I watched it with my roommates and I remember watching the last episode with our friends at their place as Donna walked down the aisle. I had the Spring Dance episode taped and watched it maybe 15 times before the next season started.
When I was 13-14 I maybe read 4 unauthorized books about this show and had my walls wallpapered with Teen Beat and Bop! centerfolds of Luke Perry (never Brandon, yuck). I currently own a few more and I have seen every episode. THIS MOVIE WAS MADE FOR ME. I’m so ready for it.
Oooh, a movie about rich kids at an Ivy League University who think someone is implicating them in a murder so they plot to murder her. That’ll show her who the murderer is! Oh wait, that would make them definitely guilty of at least one murder and also probably more implicated in the first one. What could go wrong?
IMDB says that people who like this also enjoyed “The Bride He Bought Online.” Yikes.
I’ve been meaning to do a Lifetime Movie for a while but I’ve been working two jobs so I had no time. And then Chris recorded every old basketball game ever so the DVR erased my movies. I found this one on demand so I’m going for it despite Teresa telling me it’s crazy. It’s happening. Then we get married next weekend. No big deal.
It starts off looking very scary with a car driving in an alley and the sounds of a lady struggling. Yeah, she’s taped up inside his trunk.
THE MOVIE OPENS.
It’s filmed really weirdly with cars zooming in and then everything pausing while a narrator describes her hot, cool lady friends.
The narrator is named Avery and she’s the one who keeps these two in line, or so she claims.
Another one of these things. At this point these are airing so quickly that they’re like a new series. I’m over at Kat’s and we’re taking in the madness together.
Kat thinks that this is set in the Pacific Northwest (so much lush greenery) but I thought it was Southern California- get your story straight, movies. I can barely remember what happened in the last one.
Yup, you read that correctly. A modern high school adaptation of Wuthering Heights was made by Lifetime. My computer keeps autocorrecting to “Withering” which is super annoying and going to drive me nuts while I type this.
Admission time- I’ve never read the whole book of Wuthering Heights. I know the deal with Catherine and Heathcliff and their amazing love that ends up making them embittered old people. It just isn’t Jane Austen I guess and never held my attention (much like Jane Eyre, which seems like something I’d love and I do own as well). With this one I haven’t tried to read it since I was 16 so maybe I should revisit.
