A summer of Movie Premieres - I love Advanced Screenings!

So i have been lax in writing about all this but I have had an amazing summer of Advanced Movie Screenings!

It all started when Mom and I went to see The Heat -http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2404463/ at the End of June.
  • This movie was hilarious!  completely UN-PC but seriously funny.   I heard a rumour that they may make a part 2 and I will be lining up to see it.   Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are a hilarious match up and do a great job in this buddy cop movie.    Move over boys - these two are coming for you!
Chris and I went to see Red 2http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1821694/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 
  • I personally liked the first movie better, but this one was great as well.   The actors and script stayed true to the characters that had been developed in the first movie and sent them on a new adventure.   I love Helen Mirren and her car chase - shoot em up scene was epic!    However, having watched the trailers you saw most of the good parts.
Mom and I went to see The Way Way Backhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt1727388/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 
  • I am madly in love with this movie and can't say enough amazing things about it!   Its from the same guys who did Juno and Little Miss Sunshine, so you knew it was going to be crazy indie awesome and it totally was.   Steve Carell plays a total jerk and is so convincing, I am not sure I can ever see him as Michael Scott again!  The main character Duncan is played by Liam James who I have never seen before but who was incredibly brilliant and captured an awkward 14 year old boy right down to the way he walked and held his hands.  Sam Rockwell was so incredibly sweet in this movie that I am super in love with him now!   This is a great movie about one summer in this young boys life and I highly recommend you take the time to watch it!   I thought I was the only person on the planet the called that part of the car the Way Way Back....but apparently I was wrong!
Lets see....what came next?  I think that would be Denise and I going to In a worldhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt2294677/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
  • written, directed and starred in by the super talented Lake Bell, this movie is a total indie hipster flick about a girl trying to break into the all male world of voice overs.   The quick wit and fast pace of this movie kept us laughing and loving all the characters in their own flawed way!   This was awkward and weird and funny and I think it may have been almost as good as The Way Way Back.
A week ago I took Mom, Dad and Chris to the advanced screening of Jobshttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt2357129/?ref_=sr_1
  • If you like Biopics then you might like this one, personally I thought it was a waste of my hour and a half!   The only thing I saw that I did not know about Steve Jobs was he was a gigantic asshole with a capital A!    It could be because the theater was a million degree's but I couldn't wait for this movie to end.   That being said I was a bit miffed when it did.   It sort of just ends....it doesn't bring it back around to where you were at the beginning of the movie or even to the end of his life...its starts to head that way and then just ends.   If you are a true apple geek you may love this movie...I did not!
Next one up is tomorrow - I just won passes to Getaway with Ethan Hawke - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2167202/?ref_=sr_1

I will let you know what I think!

Let me know if you have seen these movies and what you thought!

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:







If…

Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

WOAH........its been awhile.

Its howdy doody time….its howdy doo….wait?  

what was I talking about? Oh yeah….
Its update time….I know my three loyal followers are wondering if I fell off the face of the earth and I kind of feel like I have.
Okay lets go back in the history books and see where our intrepid hero was when we last spoke with her….
HOLY F^&*)^!!!!!   I was leaving for Europe….has it really been almost a year!!!!!!!!!

Man I am going to have to break this one up….so here is what I will do.   I will write a general update and go back and review my pics and journals and then I will write a series of three posts.   One for Italy, one for France and a final one  for London and my overall feelings about the trip.

I guess for your hard core fans you have seen the pics on facebook and heard the stories around the watercooler, but for those of you who aren’t in the know….I will tell you all the gritty details.   Tales of the most disastrous travel day of my life….the most amazing meal I ever ate….the pickp…
