Worst of 2012: The Movies… [FaN Boos]

Ernessa says: While my Best of picks are most often pleasant surprises, my Worst of one are usually movies, which I was really anticipating, but which severely disappointed. For example, BRAVE, the first Pixar movie with a female lead, was shockingly boring with a lead who managed to be both...

40 lines about 20 audiobooks by CH [BOOK WEEK]

I listen to audiobooks all the time. Here are some thoughts on 20 of them.   Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi This could only happen in Hollywood. Great story, love the sci-fi real world mashup. Redshirts: A Novel in Three Codas by John Scalzi The secret life of expendable characters...

Best of CH 2011

It’s been a great year of photo taking for me. I would recommend a year long project like this to anyone who wanted to hone a skill. There were a lot of days I didn’t want to do it, but in the end I am very happy to have completed a year of taking a picture every day. So below are...

Resolved: 2011 [Our Very Best]

Ernessa says: It feels so weird to not be making any resolutions this year. Some people love this time of the year because of the gift exchanges, time spent with family, goodwill toward man, blah, blah, blah — but I’ve always been a resolution girl myself. I love making the list...

Worst of 2011: TV… [FaN Boos]

Amy Says: To continue my streak of disliking the stuff everybody else likes (ie. I didn’t care for A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD, which so many others loved…maybe I should be the “On the Contrary” guy next year. I swear to g*d I’m not doing this on purpose.) In my...

Best of 2011: TV! [FaN Cheers]

Amy says: Can a remake of a BBC show be considered new? If so, then PRIME SUSPECT is my pick for the best new TV of the year. Maria Bello is awesome in everything I’ve ever seen her in. Detective procedurals aren’t normally my thing, but I love the complexity of the characters...

Worst of 2011: The Movies… [FaN Boos]

Amy Says: I was so excited about a movie mash-up of western and sci-fi. It would have cowboys AND aliens! My expectations were super high. Sadly, COWBOYS & ALIENS is my pick of the worst movie of 2011. While it was moderately entertaining, the dialogue was clunky and I just felt sorry for...

Best of 2011: The Movies! [FaN Cheers]

Amy says : My favorite movie of the year should have been RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, but I was in the Colorado wilderness the entire time it was in theaters. The original, with Chuck Heston, is my favorite movie of all time. The first time I saw it, I knew I wanted to be an actor. It was...

Worst of 2011: The Books… [FaN Boos]

Ernessa says: I’m going to make the caveat again that if I manage to get through a book, it must have something to recommend it. Life is short, and I’ve become rather good at putting down books I’m not enjoying. That claimed, this category was a bit difficult for me this...
