Hat Review: Eugenia Kim for Target

Posted by missemmamm on April 30, 2010

Late night on Sunday, April 18th I was browsing the net for something and an article with Eugenia Kim and Target in it caught my eye. I clicked it and was thrilled to learn that Eugenia Kim had made a line of hats for Target. I found out about Kim in 2004. While watching Charmed I saw a really kick ass hat on Phoebe and of course had to add it to my Charmed Fashion Boutique site. Her hats were so expensive (around $300) though that I never really thought about her again until now.

I read in a couple of press releases that they had been released that day. I checked out Target.com and many were already sold out (Don’t worry most are back in stock now). The next day I hit our only Target and they hadn’t even finished putting them out yet. The ones that were out weren’t my style and the team member just gave me a look like she didn’t know when they’d be put out.

So I came back the next day and all of the glorious hats were on display. I chose the Tan Fedora with Flower Applique and the Teal Straw Fedora with Black and White Trim. I also liked the Plaid Straw Fedora with Blue Trim (the parrot one). It was gonna be my substitute if they didn’t have either of my first choices. I liked the straw sunhat but it’s very beachy and I don’t have a beach nearby. The Engineer Hats are cute but not my style. I could definitely see my sister wearing them. They had a bunch of other hats on sale too. I scored an Exhilaration Leopard Fedora for $3.24.

The hats are so much fun and I haven’t had any problems with them. Check out the photos below for a closer look.

Check out a short interview with Eugenia Kim here.

Eugenia Kim for Target hats retail from $14.99-$19.99 (a steal!).

Movie Review: It’s Complicated

Posted by missemmamm on April 27, 2010

Photobucket

4 out of 5 stars
starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin

FYI: Be aware of the fact that I don’t write and only skim in depth movie reviews. Spoilers aren’t my thing. To me reviews are about whether or not I (or you) should see it.

When It’s Complicated was released I was super excited to see it. It looked like it was right up my alley. Plus it stars Alec Baldwin who I watch (& salivate over) regularly on 30 Rock. Then I started seeing movie reviewers putting the movie down and basically say “gross, old people in love”. That’s when I thought about my reaction. I’m not into watching senior romances anymore than any other 20 something woman. However this film stars two actors that I love. I was a big fan of Streep growing up because of the movie Death Becomes Her. My sister and I used to watch it all of the time. I rewatched it on Christmas Eve and it still rocked. Alec was trickier to figure out. While growing up my favorite Baldwin , as a child of the 90s, was Stephen not Alec. I remember liking the Juror but I didn’t really care much about Alec until he started to do an amazing job of guest hosting Saturday Night Live. Incidentally, Martin and Baldwin appeared together in a sketch on SNL not long ago.

I unsuccessfully tried to see the film quite a few times before I actually was able to but the wait was worth it. The film is about a woman who starts seeing her ex husband again after they’ve been divorced for years. The complicated decision is whether or not she actually wants to pursue this. Add a dash of a love triangle with Martin and some overly affectionate offspring and you get the general plot. The fun comes in getting to see Streep, Baldwin and Martin act silly and happy and rediscovering love.

Another great thing about this movie is it’s rated R. So many romantic comedies come out that are PG or PG-13 and sex is hinted at or giggled about like the characters are 11 or something. This movie is more realistic. These are normal adults who get laid, drink, etc. Plus Baldwin is a little self deprecating which is nice to see for a change. Martin also surprised me as a more meek, forlorn character than he usually plays. There are quite a few talented actors in the supporting cast. This includes John Krasinksi who I’m glad to see acting again after I tried to watch that movie he directed, ugh. I think one of the reasons I really dig this movie is because I can sympathize with all three of the main characters (from different times of course). BTW-If you’re looking for a laugh this is more sweet funny than knee slapping funny.

Verdict: If you like romantic comedies Rent/Buy this.

Buy It’s Complicated on Blu-ray or DVD.

Rent It’s Complicated on Netflix.

Buy Death Becomes Her and Saturday Night Live-The Best of Alec Baldwin on DVD.

Check out Alec Baldwin’s Saturday Night Live sketches on Hulu

Cuff Em: Sergeant Sexy Costume Review

Posted by missemmamm on April 26, 2010

cinemmouth eddy

I chose the Sergeant sexy costume – Costume – EdenFantasys because a few years ago while costume shopping with a friend she had tried on a similar costume and looked fab. So my expectations were pretty high.

CIMG0482

The set includes the blue longsleeve zip front 100% polyester police romper, a vinyl hat, handcuffs, baton and belt. The last three were all plastic. The style of the romper is described as boyshorts but they are so short that you may feel a bit like Lady Gaga. The romper appears to be pretty durable. It has a patch with POLICE wrote on the left breast which is more coy than some other cop outfits I’ve seen for sale. The cuffs and lapels also add something special to the romper.

arms 1st

sky orton sm

The hat showed up completely smushed. I tried to push it in to place, then I left it sitting out for quite a while before I got around to wearing the costume but it was still messed up when I went to wear it. Despite that the hat is very fun to wear. I love the big badge on it and it really gets you into character. I wasn’t as keen about the other accessories. The baton is very flimsy. If actually hit someone with it I think I’d be completely bent and ruined. Once for a party I bought a pack of 10 plastic cuffs from a dollar store for $1. These cuffs looks just like those but don’t work as well. They don’t stay closed.

top 1st

Now here’s the major problem I had with the outfit. It wasn’t even close to fitting me. I wear a size 10 and am a C cup. According to the Leg Avenue size chart a Medium/Large should fit a size 10-14. You can see what the size chart says the measurements should be. These are the actual measurements of the romper I received: Chest 32″, Waist 26-27″, Hip 31″, Inseam 2″, Length (from the highest point of the neck) 28.5″. The belt measures 30-37″. If you actually were the size of the costume the belt would be too big. I would say size up but the eden fantasys site doesn’t have a larger size. At first it made me feel bad because like many women I need/have been trying to lose about 10lbs. Then I realized that this would probably only have fit me comfortably back when I was 18 and had disordered eating. I was left wishing I had picked out one of the many other cop outfits that they offer.

Other than that it is a nice romper and pretty strong because it didn’t tear even though I was poured into it. I would pair it with boots or stilettos. You could also wear a pair of tights. If you really want to play the part I would suggest buying some stronger cuffs separately. eden fantasys offers some good looking handcuffs you may want to check out: Black handcuffs – Handcuffs – EdenFantasys or Police handcuff – Handcuffs – EdenFantasys

TV
Ugly Betty
Recently Ugly Betty had it’s Series Finale. I was a fan of the show during the first season. I knew I had to check it out because I had been a fan of America’s from Real Women Have Curves and I loved Eric Mabius in Black Circle Boys when I was a teen. Over the next few years it was a little too over the top. I only watched it occasionally. I thought that the finale was really good but they could have made it 2 hours. You can watch it on ABC.

FILM
Netflix
Flicks now streaming on Netflix include Moon (Sam Rockwell), A Scanner Darkly and Tape. I highly recommend all three of these films.

TRAILERS
I Love You Philip Morris-I’ve been dying to see this movie starring Jim Carrey as a newly gay con man who falls for Ewan McGregor. Unfortunately the release date keeps getting pushed. It was March, then April, now it’s fall. At this rate the DVD won’t be out until 2011, sigh.
YouTube Preview Image

Dinner For Schmucks-This flick starring Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis is a remake of the 1998 French film the Dinner Game which is very funny. It’s about a group who try to outdo each other by inviting the dumbest guest to dinners. This one looks like a winner.
YouTube Preview Image

The Killers-I’m not really sure about this one. It’s an action romantic comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. She hasn’t made a good romantic comedy yet.
YouTube Preview Image

Beastly-This is getting press because of Mary-Kate Olsen appearing in it. It’s like MTV’s take on the Beauty and the Beast fable. I think I would have loved this as a preteen. It could be a big hit.

YouTube Preview Image

The Other Guys-Buddy cop comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell as two doofy cops. At least it looks better than Cop Out.

The Sexy Alex O’Loughlin

Posted by missemmamm on April 21, 2010

Australian actor Alex O’Loughlin came to my attention in 2007 when he starred as Mick the private eye vampire in Moonlight. I loved this series. This was prior to the whole vampire craze of Twilight and True Blood. It had poor ratings and was canceled after one season.

Recently he starred in the medical drama Three Rivers. Despite the show being set in Pittsburgh, PA (not far from me) it didn’t really interest me and I didn’t watch it. I’m not a hospital show type of gal although I do watch Grey’s Anatomy & Private Practice occasionally.

Now O’Loughlin is starring in the newest J. Lo vehicle The Back-up Plan which is a cheesy romantic comedy. So I’m all over that.

Up next Alex will be playing Det. Steve McGarrett in a remake of the series Hawaii Five-O.

KFC Double Down Review

Posted by missemmamm on April 20, 2010

You may have noticed that I don’t usually write about food. I don’t have a discerning palette and I don’t go out to fancy restaurants. I rarely eat out and I don’t cook. I eat a lot of frozen or dried meals. When I saw the new KFC Double Down I thought it looked pretty cool. However a quick search for reviews yielded mostly blurbs about how it was gross and they were practically forced to eat because they’re reviewers. Plus it always seems to be a shock to people that fast food has a lot of calories and fat. Duh. You’re not supposed to eat it all the time. So I thought I’d do my own.

KFC Double Down Collage

The KFC Double Down is the new bunless sandwich at KFC. It’s 2 chicken filets with 2 slices of bacon, 2 slices of cheese (pepper jack & monterey jack) and the Colonel’s Sauce in the middle. You can get it in original recipe or grilled. It comes in a wrapper so you can hold it without getting your fingers greasy. The meal deal was $6.99 at my local KFC (Southwest Pennsylvania) or $4.99 for just the sandwich. I opted for the original recipe meal.

The sandwich seemed kind of small in comparison to the container. I had a hard time trying to eat it like a sandwich so after a couple of bites I pulled it apart and ate with a fork. The best part of the sandwich was the chicken. The cheese wasn’t completely melted. I am usually a big fan of cheese but I just didn’t like the kind they used. The flavor was off. It would also taste better with more bacon. The special sauce was okay but nothing to write home about. Due to the sauce and cheese it has a slightly spicy flavor.

It was okay but in the future I’ll stick with my favorite KFC item the Twister.

Best Movie Quotes from Death at a Funeral (2010) US

Posted by missemmamm on April 19, 2010

Photobucket

Death at a Funeral is Neil LaBute’s new dark comedy about a family who come together at their father’s funeral and learn more than they wanted to know about him. It stars Chris Rock, Loretta Devine, Peter Dinklage, Danny Glover, Regina Hall, Martin Lawrence, James Marsden, Tracy Morgan, Zoe Saldana and Luke Wilson. It is a remake of Frank Oz’s 2007 British film of the same name. The original film stars Ewen Bremner, Alan Tudyk and Peter Dinklage. Dinklage reprises the role he played in the original film. The original was released in the US but without much fanfare.

Ryan: “So you come to a lot of funerals?”

Aaron: “Come on man. She’s like in the 12th grade.” Ryan: “Well she might be in 12th grade but that ass is in grad school.”

Oscar: “Did you just see that?” Elaine: “See what?” Oscar: “That coffin just moved.”

Aaron: “Look at the damn body man. You got Jackie Chan in there.”

Aaron: “It’s not Burger King. You can’t just mess up my order.”

Ryan: “You gonna bring a gat to a funeral?”

Jeff: “What you thought was Valium was not actually Valium, Yikes.”

Uncle Russell: “Let’s just burn him and get it over with.”

Elaine: “I was drunk. You could’ve been a donkey for all I knew.” Derek: “Thank you.”

Norman: “Damnit Uncle Russell. I love you but you gonna be in the box next.”

Ryan: “If I don’t get some money soon I’m gonna have to do a damn reality show, It’s Hammer Time.”

Oscar: “Let’s go. Join the others.”

Aaron: “Let me get this straight. Our father was bromantically involved with a guy that could fit in his pocket and you’re mad cuz he’s white?

Ryan: “You tellin’ me our father was on the down low?” Aaron: “Way down low.”

Ryan: “I didn’t know he did yoga.”

Aaron: “Were you guys friends?” Frank: “Something like that.”

Help Fund A Quality Film: How Do You Write A Joe Schermann Song?

Posted by missemmamm on April 17, 2010

YouTube Preview Image

You may not be aware but independent filmmakers have been raising money on the net to fund their movies for a few years via Myspace and eBay. I have even contributed to a few of them. The thing is usually you usually have to wait for an unspecified amount of time to see the movie get made because it can take a long time to raise those funds. Plus many of the filmmakers are first timers which means you have no idea if the movie you’ve backed will actually be good.

How Do You Write A Joe Schermann Song is different in 2 ways: 1. They are using Kickstarter and 2. The director is Gary King who already has many quality films under his belt. Kickstarter lets you pledge money to a project and that project isn’t completed unless they receive the full amount they are asking for. This means you don’t have to wait an undefined amount of time before you hear about the movie getting filmed.

king scr
photo from the official What’s Up Lovely site.

Now let me tell you about Gary King. King first came to my attention in 2008 while attending Horrorfind Weekend which is an annual horror movie convention. Gary King was there to screen his film Dismal. He also brought the cast who cheerfully signed posters and photos and posed for pictures after the screening. I thought the movie was awesome. Later I found the film, actors and King on Myspace. When I started using twitter I followed King on there and found out that he makes a variety of films. I haven’t been able to see his other films but I do watch the trailers and read his blog and they look really good. Don’t take my word for it though, his film What’s Up Lovely was listed on various film sites as one of the best films of 2009. King is very friendly to fans and supportive of other independent filmmakers on his twitter.

According to the official site How Do You Write A Joe Scherman Song? is “intimate tale about an aspiring Broadway songwriter who jeopardizes his relationships and budding career after he begins working with a talented singer”. For more on the film visit the official site and then go donate on Kickstarter. There is about a day left and the film needs a little under $3000 to get funded. You can donate as little as $1. I think that a really cool, affordable pledge is $151 because you receive a “Special Thanks” credit, copy of the movie, soundtrack, poster and DVDs of King’s previous films, New York Lately and What’s Up Lovely.

TV Inspired Fashion: Kath & Kim

Posted by missemmamm on April 16, 2010

Kath & Kim was a quickly canceled sitcom on NBC. It was a remake of the Australian Kath & Kim which ran for 4 seasons. I have never seen the original. I thought that the remake was very funny though. I was already a fan of both Molly Shannon and Selma Blair prior to the show. It was about a spoiled adult who is still living with her mother who is trying to break free from her to have her own life. Fans of the original didn’t like it for various reasons including that they thought that Selma was too skinny to play the lead. She did try by gaining 20lbs for the role. Many Americans thought it was unfunny. I was one of the few who liked it. Anyway the characters have a completely over the top fashion sense that is too fun. Sometimes it’s cringe inducing and sometimes it’s so bad it’s (almost) good. You can buy it on DVD.

April Movie Showers

Posted by missemmamm on April 12, 2010

Yes, this is super late. I meant to do this post a couple of days before April started but I got distracted with other entries and sms work.

Clash of the Titans-4/2-(This film had been pushed. It was supposed to open in March.)
wothington
Clash of the Titans is a big budget Greek mythology flick. Of course they had to capitalize on the 3D trend. I haven’t had a chance to see it yet but the trailers blew me away. It’s been getting not so stellar reviews but I don’t care. I used to read about all of that stuff when I was in grade school. Plus it stars the super hot Sam Worthington. Those who have seen it recommend saving the extra few bucks & watching it in 2D. I’m gonna go with 3D myself though.

Date Night-4/9
fey3

Photo is from the April 2010 Issue of Esquire

It’s Tina Fey and Steve Carell in a comedic case of mistaken identity. It features a ton of awesome supporting players including Ray Liotta (squee!), Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Kristin Wiig and Mark Ruffalo. I would have seen it this weekend if I wasn’t all booked up with work.

After.Life-04/09 (Limited)
YouTube Preview Image
This is a creepy looking flick about Christina Ricci as a ghost, or something. It co-stars Liam Neeson, Justin Long and Josh Charles.

The Runaways-4/9 (opened in limited release on 3/19)
The flick about The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. It looks pretty good but we still haven’t gotten it here so I guess I’ll have to wait for the Blu Ray.

Kick-Ass-4/16

ass

As soon as I heard the buzz on this wannabe super hero movie I checked out the trailer…and was disappointed. It just doesn’t thrill me like it’s doing for so many others. As I’ve seen it a few more times in front of films at the theater it’s grown on me a little. I concede that it looks sort of interesting. I’m surprised that they don’t even mention Nic Cage’s name in many of the commercials. I’m a little disturbed by the fact that I’m now attracted to McLovin. Tidbits: Some people are in a huff that the little girl in the movie says cunt. It has already opened in the UK. So while working this weekend I had quite a few showtime requests calling it Kick Arse instead which amused me.

Death at a Funeral-4/16
Yes, there is funny stuff in the commercial for this comedy about a funeral that is a remake of a movie that is only 3 years old. However I get sick at the thought of a funny funeral movie because I’ve lost so many loved ones in the last few years. Believe me, a real funeral is devastating, not funny.

The Joneses-4/16 (Limited)

YouTube Preview Image
This flick starring David Duchovy, Demi Moore and Gary Cole looks pretty interesting. It’s about marketing your lifestyle to people without them knowing it. It looks like it might have an unnecessary romance thrown in but it might work. I haven’t seen any commercials or trailers for this aside from stumbling across it on the IMDB.

The Losers-4/23
This looks like a fun action comedy. It stars Chris Evans, Zoe Saldana and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The Back-up Plan-4/23
backupbackup 2
Jennifer Lopez thinks it’s still 10 years ago so she decided to put out another romantic comedy and appeared on SNL in a Smash Mouth sketch. Personally if I were hosting I wouldn’t date myself by including a sketch like that. It just reminds me of when she was on top. This might sound negative but I actually really want to see this. I’m a fan of both good and bad romantic comedies. I loved the Wedding Planner way back when but Maid in Manhattan was a let down. Plus I don’t need an excuse to see a movie that makes use of the smokin’ hot Alex O’Loughlin without a shirt. I loved him on Moonight. I prefer the long hair but I take what I can get. It’s directed by Alan Poul of the canceled show Swingtown, which I loved. Plot, who needs a plot? But seriously, it’s about a woman who meets a stud right after getting artificially inseminated. (If I had a nickel for everytime this has happened to me)

A Nightmare on Elm Street-4/30
nightmare poster
I was a big Freddy fan growing up but I think the magic of Freddy Krueger is embodied by Robert Englund. Many people are excited about this remake because Freddy is being played by Jackie Earle Haley whom people loved in Watchmen. It has the potential to be interesting but there’s no way it could take the place of the original.
