Movie Blurb: "Sinister"

First of, I'd like to give a huge thanks to Alliance Films for giving us the free tickets to tonight's advance screening of "Sinister" and for Cineplex Odeon Eau Claire for hosting.
If you love getting mini-heart attack then you should go and watch this movie in theatres. I really liked this movie because it had an actual story line and not just about the gore. The comic relief interjected at various parts was awesome! It gave me a chance to breathe from holding my breath with all the suspense. There are slow parts in the movie but it all adds up to a great scare.
Cons: I got really frustrated with the main character, Ellison (the dad), because he would not seek help! Reminds me of the men stereotype of never asking for directions. He would have had a good chance of doing something about this myth but he comes short. Also, how many Apple plug ins can this movie have!?
In the movie we saw a girl scream repeatedly and big husky grown man jump out of his seat and swear! The bf also said that he can foresee a "shitty sequel" in the future.
Mine: ✯✯✯.5/5
BF: ✯✯✯/5
In theatres Friday October 12, 2012.
Have you seen him? If you see the movie, comment below! If you've seen him? Well, I can't help you there ;)

Gobble up the Gratitude!

The adobo turkey has been put away. The pumpkin pie is back chillin' in the fridge. Our stomachs are so full of food and our hearts bursting with love. The end has come for our Thanksgiving and everyone is getting ready to sleep off the holiday and return to normal life schedule.

But before I do the same, I would like to put down some thoughts into words.

What exactly is this holiday we call Thanksgiving?

Sure there's the whole history that Thanksgiving "..celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year" from Wikipedia.

The meaning is in the word and it's quiet simple really. Thanksgiving = "Giving Thanks" Right to the point.

So all weekend I have been trying extra hard to not only list what I will be giving thanks to but also why I should be giving thanks.

Top things I am VERY grateful for:

  • Good health - the fact I have lived another day..THANK YOU!
  • My wonderful parents who have sacrificed so much to provide me the life I have today
  • My patient boyfriend who is my constant support, my rock.
  • My family - group of friends and "support peeps" who have encouraged me to strive to be a better person and who have stood by me all this time. I shall include my cats to this list  ^^
  • Opportunities - It has been an adventurous year full of new things. Doors and windows have opened.
  • Destined to meet strangers - Various people who have, in short spurts, visited my life and have taught me lessons.
Wow! A huge thank you for all the blessings that have been bestowed upon me and my family this year. Call it luck, call it hard work but it's all blessings.

So a very Happy Thanksgiving to you all and to all a good night ^_^ (aaak...and another reminder Christmas is just around the corner!)
