New Trailer for Thor: The Dark World!

You all know that I’m pretty darn excited for the next Thor movie. Like I will be there, front of the line opening day. Me and my whole family. For real. On that note, if you’re as Thor-happy as I am you’ll want to bookmark (share, tweet, pin?) this post because there are a ton of exclusive images from Walt Disney & Marvel Studios that you’ll want to look at over and over again!

Having debuted as a part of Geek Week’s Super Wednesday here’s the new Thor: The Dark World trailer:

The Road to “OZ”: New Clip & Polyvore Fashion

So I know I’ve said it like a million zillion times, but I am super excited to see Oz The Great and Powerful – which hits theaters next week! It was great to see so many of my blogging friends attend the actual red carpet premiere  (check out one of their posts here & here & here), and I’ve probably viewed the trailer enough times to know it by heart. So being of the digitally creative sort I decided to throw together three polyvore boards, one for each of the witches in Oz! Here they are:

Theodora, Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful #DisneyOzEvent

I put this one together based on the character of Theodora, played by Mila Kunis. Theodora is initially a “good” witch, I loved the usage of her red, black, and white outfit in the movie – which isn’t as costume-y as Rachel Weisz’s Evanora outfit, and I tried to capture a little of the costume’s nuances here.

Glinda the Good, Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful #DisneyOzEvent

I love how princess-like and ethereal Glinda’s white costume is in the film. Glinda, played by Michelle Williams, is (obviously, lol!) the good witch of the South. I loved the long sleeves on her white gown, so I went with a one shoulder spin on that look – and aren’t those shoes absolutely gorgeous!?

Evanora, Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful #DisneyOzEvent

I know she’s evil, but I just love love love the costume for Rachel Weisz’s Evanora! I went for a similarly dark look here, and just had too much fun putting this one together – I figure, if you’re going to be bad you might as well look good while you’re being it!

As excited for Oz The Great and Powerful as I am?! Awesome, this is seriously the number one movie on my “must-watch” list this year! I hope it is on yours too!

Here’s an exclusive clip of Theodora and Evanora!

New Posters Released for Oz The Great And Powerful!

So you guys already know that I’m pretty excited to see Oz The Great And Powerful – I remember falling in love with The Wizard of Oz when I was little (although the flying monkeys totally creeped me out), and cannot wait to see the magic that Disney has worked in creating a backstory for one of the most famous stories ever told!

Judging by the way the trailer and how the posters look – this film is bound to get nominated for something! Right now I’m completely enthralled with the artwork featured in the movie posters – everything looks so vivid and whimsical. Plus, I can’t wait to see Rachel Weisz as Evanora, one of the three witches (I’m guessing she’s the darker more devious one of the three) of the Land of Oz!

Starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and Zach Braff Oz The Great And Powerful is directed by Sam Raimi and slated for release on March 8, 2013. Until then, I’ve included the newest poster and a couple stills from Oz The Great And Powerful for your viewing pleasure – aren’t they beautiful?!

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL

Feature Film Friday: My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

As a writer I always get a kick out of films that start with narration, because much like the first lines of a novel they instantly let the reader know if this is a book worth reading. And the first time I heard the opening lines, delivered flawlessly by actress/writer Nia Vardalos, I knew that this one was a keeper. Toula (Vardalos) responds to her fathers complaints about her elderly unmarried life with:

My dad’s been saying that to me since I was fifteen, because nice Greek girls are supposed to do three things in life- marry Greek boys, make Greek babies, and feed everyone until the day we die.

Aha! Now this is silver screen gold! Now, we know what kind of movie this is! Nia’s clever wit and brilliantly delivered lines poke fun at the quirks that families, no matter where they are from, drive us crazy with. My whole family has seen this movie so many times that we ALL know every characters lines by heart- in fact my sister can do a mean Gus Portokalos, and I an deliver Aunt Voula’s lines like a pro.

MBFGW is one of those feel-good movies that never, ever, get’s old. Casted, written, acted, and directed perfectly, this movie delivers plenty of laughs and the perfect dose of heartfelt moments.

Memorable My Big Fat Greek Wedding Quote:

When I was growing up, I knew I was different. The other girls were blonde and delicate, and I was a swarthy six-year-old with sideburns.

I pretty sure you can catch the whole thing on youtube here, but you’ll love it so much you’ll probably want to buy it. In which case, it’s usually available at target or walmart for $5.
