Mindy's Movie Reviews

A blog that went from discussing about the writing life to reviews of movies

Happy GroundHog's Day!

Howdy everyone!

It's groundhog day and so far I heard that up here in Canada we're supposed to get another 6 weeks of winter, or however long we're supposed to have. Doesn't surprise me as our winters up here always seem to be too long in my view lol.

I cannot believe that it is February already! I have a feeling that this is going to be yet another incredibly fast year. Maybe I'll be able to hold onto something along the way to slow it down.

In about 12 days will be Valentine's Day! I already found my Valentine who is a two year old I babysit quite a bit. We're probably going to spend our day listening to Michael Buble and making crafts lol. The whole on coming of Valentine's Day has got me thinking about writing. Then again when do I not think about writing?

My niche is thriller/drama types of writing and since this is the year I have been challenging myself I thought about writing a very short romance story for you all just to see if I can do it. So, just in time for Valentine's Day, I shall post that short story next week hoping to hear from you about what you thought.... this is going to be quite the challenge in deed for me lol!

Speaking of Valentine's Day, have any of you seen the trailer for the movie called Valentine's Day? It has a major all star cast which worries me a bit as not too many all star movies do so well in Hollywood. The cast includes; Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates (amazing actress), Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane (known as McSteamy on Grey's Anatomy), Patrick Dempsey (the ever so hot McDreamy), Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher (Mr. Demi Moore), Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner (howls), Taylor Swift, George Lopez, Julia Roberts etc.

I am hoping to go see the movie and will let you all know what it's like. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be good.

Okay so really quick, I wanted to update you on some of my challenges. I am proud to say I am almost right on target with my reading for my 50 books in a year challenge. I managed to read a 300 page biography in 3 hours. I was utterly surprised with myself. WriYe is well I am trying to get back on track with that one. I only wrote about 2000 words in January so February is definitely a catch up month...

Anyways, I hope you all have a great week and for some strange reason I still want to find ONE more challenge for me to do this year....any suggestions or am I just nuts?
