Liv’s Current Obsession: Why I Love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Liv’s Current Obsession: Why I Love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Frequently, I find myself thanking Alethea (@frootjoos) over at Read Now, Sleep Later for introducing me to new television series.  Two of my favorites are Murdoch Mysteries from Canada and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries from Australia.  I seriously think she has everyone watching these. Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries takes place in Melbourne in the later 1920’s, one of my favorite time periods.  It features actress, Essie Davis as the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, who fights injustice and solves murders with the help of a great cast of characters, a gold-plated pistol, and a dagger hidden under her skirt.  Shouldn’t all… Read more »

Trailer: Guardians of the Galaxy

Trailer: Guardians of the Galaxy

Last week, the full trailer for the new Marvel Comics movie Guardians of the Galaxy was released. I have never read this comic so I don’t know anything about the story, but I am pretty much in for any comic book movie. From what I can see, the special effects look good and it has a raccoon in it. How can I resist? What do you guys think? Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters in August.

Not Really a Movie Review: Vampire Academy

Not Really a Movie Review: Vampire Academy

Hi, guys. As you can tell from the title of this post, this is not really a movie review. I wanted to write about the Vampire Academy movie, but I kind of suck at writing movie reviews and it would take forever. I wanted to share with you my feelings while it was still fresh in my mind, so with inspiration from this Buzzfeed list, I am going to list for you the reasons that I recommend seeing the VA movie. I’ll preface this by saying that I am a big fan of Richelle Mead and the series, but I… Read more »

It’s Finally Here – Official Trailer for The Fault in Our Stars

It’s Finally Here – Official Trailer for The Fault in Our Stars

You’ve all probably seen this by now but I figured you could watch it one more time. :) The trailer for The Fault in Our Stars looks pretty amazing and true to the book. Since I read the book really recently, it’s very fresh in my mind. I think it’s going to be good and I love the shots of Amsterdam. I didn’t really cry while reading the book but I just might when I see the movie. The Fault in Our Stars hits theaters June 6, 2014. Get your tissue box ready.

Teaser Trailer: Disney’s Maleficent

Teaser Trailer: Disney’s Maleficent

Have you guys seen the new trailer for Disney’s Maleficent (and do I really have to write Disney before it?)? This is just a teaser trailer but I think it looks really promising. It almost feels like a horror movie trailer, and I am hoping that it’s a bit darker than normal Disney fare. Angelina Jolie seems made for this role. And what the heck did they do to her cheekbones? That’s some amazing CGI or makeup. Maleficent opens on May 30, 2014.

TV Spot: Vampire Academy

TV Spot: Vampire Academy

A new TV spot was just released for the upcoming Vampire Academy movie. It has a darker tone than the previous trailers, which some thought were too cheesy (but I loved them). Dark or campy, I don’t care. There’s no way I am missing this movie. The release date has also been moved up a week and is now set to release on Feb 7, 2014.

Trailer: Transcendence

Trailer: Transcendence

Transcendence is a movie that has somehow managed to slip my radar until today, when I stumbled across this trailer. Looks like a futuristic sci-fi movie with an existential twist. I can’t tell if it looks creepy or cool. I’m on the fence about this one. What do you guys think?

New Theatrical Trailer: Veronica Mars

Hi, marshmallows! The new trailer for the Veronica Mars movie has just been released. We’ve seen most of this footage before but it’s now in an official trailer. I will probably clap if I see this trailer in the theater. Movie releases March 14, which happens to be my birthday weekend. I may have to make this the official birthday movie for 2014.  Enjoy the trailer!

Hallmark Countdown to Christmas 2013

Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas Just a few more days until Christmas and I am spending the day cleaning and watching a marathon of Hallmark Holiday Movies.  There are some that I tape and watch over and over again and others that I delete after one viewing and maybe watch again if they show up on one of the marathon movie days.  I realize that each of these movies will touch different people in different ways, but here are my thoughts on the 2013 Hallmark Original Holiday movies…. The Thanksgiving House (Premiered November 2, 2013)Blurb from Hallmark Website:A woman buys… Read more »
