The Hunger Games

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Yes, a teaser trailer was just posted on IMDB and I have to say it's not bad. I mean, what do you expect from's just a teaser.

It's not supposed to show a lot, just enough to get you wondering.....this is towards all the haters out there.

Now, I presume,  most of the hating is coming from people who haven't read the book. Which is reasonable because you don't know what the hell is going on. So, for those people who don't can you let the people who do enjoy the fact that there's a teaser out. Because, it was made for them.

Now, for those who haven't read the book but are interested in what's it about or are just wondering here's a few links:

               Borders Online Store

Some borders stores are still open but are closing soon, so, you may or may not be able to find them in there. But since it's a high demand book you maybe lucky to find a few.

Personally, I think the teaser is pretty good. However, yes, the fire in some scenes you can tell its CGI but other than that, it's pretty good.

And yes, I am a fan. I've read 2 out of 3 books. Kind of scared to read the third one though because of some reviews but if I want to know what happens I'll just have to buck up.

I've got to say the more and more times I watch this, I'm getting excited. Gives me chills, the whistling at the end. You all know what it is.

Now, here's a little treat for you. I found these after I read the book because I just couldn't get it out of my mind. The man who made these, was actually making them for the actors and actresses. The girl whom played katniss, he wanted to use these as her tape audition. 


And there's a few more on his youtube account.

So, what do you guys think?
Are you guys just as excited?

Summer Songs (5)

Sorry I haven't posted in a week. This week was crazy for me. Lab for school started so I was there early on Monday and longer there on Wednesday. Plus Friday our teacher kicked us out after ten minutes because out of sixty or so students only three + me actually did the reading assignments, so that was fun. And now today I have to study hard for a pop quiz tomorrow. But, what can you do....

So, anyways today's summer song is Faster by Matt Nathanson

Summer Songs (4)

So, I'm like craving a few songs lately and I would love to share them with you. 3 1/2 to be precis. The 1/2 is for a song that's okay but one of those that just always get stuck in your head.

The first is one a fell upon while I was watching another music video and now I just can't get enough of it.

Someone Like You by The Summer Set

Then we have, Bitch by Meredith Brooks. I heard it on the Practical Magic trailer and I fell in love with this song all over again.

Now, the next one is too from Practical Magic being played in the movie with a favorite scene of mine.

The one that just got into my head was also from the movie Practical Magic, which is too, another favorite scene of mine.

Midnight Margaritas!

Flawless (Pretty Little Liars #2)

Spencer stole her sister's boyfriend. Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher. Emily likes her new friend Maya . . . as much more than a friend. Hanna's obsession with looking flawless is making her sick. And their most horrible secret yet is so scandalous that the truth would ruin them forever.
And why shouldn't I tell? They deserve to lose it all. With every crumpled note, wicked IM, and vindictive text message I send, I'll be taking these pretty little liars down. Trust me, I've got enough dirt to bury them alive.

Written by: Sara Shepard
Page count: 330

So this one starts up of them outside the church called, Rosewood Abbey, after Alison's memorial finished. With the four girls still poundering over A's latest text, the all famous one;

"I'm still here, bitches. And I know everything." - A

Which starts them to finally talk to each other but of course that doesn't last long.

These girls are very independent unlike how the ABC Family series show cases them. But I think i like the book better when they're all together, that's when things really get interesting.

Here you learn more of the Jenna Thing. Apparently A can't let that one go...
...but why should she or he, because of that one thing A's got them all wrapped around their fingers.

Though, I have to say, at some points I guess I really didn't care about the girls or their lives but then it'll get back to you by grabbing you by the throat and it won't let go.

Love the ending and I can't wait till I buy the next one, Perfect, to see what happens next and who's really behind the messages.

The Lying Game

The show follows Emma (Chando), a kind-hearted foster kid who cant catch a break. She finds out she has an identical twin sister, Sutton (also played by Chando), who unlike Emma was adopted by wealthy parents and is seemingly living an ideal life. After their initial meeting, Sutton talks Emma into stepping into her life for a few days while she pursues a lead on their birth mother.

It's a new ABC Family  original TV series based off the book written by Sara Shepard, whom also wrote the Pretty Little Lairs series, which is too an ABC Family original.

In the beginning you see into both of the girls lives until Emma runs away, towards her sister. When she meets up with her sister,  Sutton, Sutton gets the idea to switch places for a couple of days so she can go find the parents that abandoned them.

Emma always wanted a real family, always want things. So she was excited for the switch, seeing how the other side of the money pyramid lived.

In the last twenty or so minutes you see all isn't right in Sutton's world. That maybe she's getting a little to close to something that shouldn't be known to the world. 

I hope you'll get more of the feel on what is going on in the next episode since it was the first.

Just like with Pretty Little Liars you'll get hooked, I know I did. :) 

But of course there is some downsides I have with it. Both girls got adopted, one for the worst and one for the better, and as usual the better came into royalties. Not middle class or even upper middle class. No. Though, I know it's not ABC Family's fault, Nope, it's the writer's. I've noticed she seems to like to write in that world and it's okay (not judging) but after awhile it seems to get a little old, don't you think? I don't know, maybe it's just me.
       I mean, really, how often does that happen?

Anyways, it's a good start to what I can tell by the promos is going to be a great series. Intrigued and I can't wait for next weeks.

Oh, and, a lot of new faces they brought to us, only just a few I've sen before. I like that. I think ABC Family is really good at picking their cast. Except, I have a small problem with the main characters, Emma and Sutton, whom are played by Alexandra Chando. I think, for me at least, that it would have been a lot cooler if they were actually played by real twins. Though, Sutton doesn't get much scene time maybe they decided against real twins because of that. Maybe.
Over all,
5 hearts

P.S that rating can change over the course of the series.

Down A Dark Hall

Kit Gordy sees Blackwood Hall towering over black iron gates, and she can't help thinking, This place is evil. The imposing mansion sends a shiver of fear through her. But Kit settles into a routine, trying to ignore the rumors that the highly exclusive boarding school is haunted.
Then her classmates begin to show extraordinary and unknown talents. The strange dreams, the voices, the lost letters to family and friends, all become overshadowed by the magic around them.
When Kit and her friends realize that Blackwood isn't what it claims to be, it might be too late.

Chills......that's the word that comes to mind when I look back on this book.

Simple plot written in bone chilling words, page after page. What more can I say.

Kit is a strong willed young adult who isn't going to do anything she doesn't want to do. But the one thing she can't fight against is ending up at the all girls boarding school, Blackwood.

Being accepted and without her best friend, she gets another surprise to finding out only three other girls are going to the school. Why so little, they don't.

Obviously it couldn't be because of who they are or where they come from it's got to be something else, right? 

Four completely different girls except for one thing....but you wouldn't be able to tell what it is on the outside. As time goes by they all start to develop new talents. Is it because of the wonderful teaching they're getting or is it something more sinister

I'm really happy at to how it ended. Sadly I was afraid it was going to go the opposite direction but it didn't. :) I've seen way, way to many movies where it did and that always pisses me off. It was nice how everything tied up together.

This was the first book I've read from, Lois Duncan, so I was just going off by what it was about when I picked it up. Which I'm glad to say I did and that I fell for it and I fell hard.

<3 <3 <3 <3

Now there are two other titles I know are from her which are, I know what you did last summer & stranger with my face. But am kind of not sure I want to pick them up. Haven't decided yet. Mostly, for the reason for the first title, that it might not be what I expect because I have seen the movie and loved it. What do you guys think? Should I pick them up?

Inside Out

Keep Your Head Down.
Don't Get Noticed.
Or Else.

I'm Trella. I'm a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I've got one friend, do my job and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? The only neck at risk is my own…until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution.

The moment your eyes lay sight on the first page you're sucked in and can't come loose. From the start you're thrown into the action and it's like that most of the way through.

This book is about a girl whom thought the way she lived her life was the way to survive the lower levels.....but the true survival test was just about to come.

All she wanted to do was prove her friends, Cog, prophet was wrong, a fake whom only worked for the uppers.....until she made one tiny slip that started a rebellion.

The whole entire time she tried to fight the little hope that lingered in her, the little chances there was something more to this way of life, and as she finds out more and more she sees now that what she'ves been told about her world, about her way of life and other's is all just a lie. Just a way for the Pop Cops to keep control over everything.

With the help of her new found friends, they'll work together and find ways to make life conditions better for everyone and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one, to see what they'll do next.

There's twist and turns that I didn't see coming or was always wrong on who was the snitch. It's a good entertaining read that'll have you sitting on the edge of your seat in some parts. I've came to be to this book because I've got hooked into the world of dystopia's thanks to the one and only, The Hunger Games. However, it's not as outstanding or memorable like in the sense of that series. But it has it's moments.  

Don't get me wrong it's great and I really liked it, it just lacked, I think, on what I thought it was going to be. I don't know, maybe it just hasn't sunk in yet. Except what that place was, was totally not what I thought it was going to be which, like, blow my mind. It was definitely a better ending than what I see in some. It'll make you want to go buy the next one. Which I'll do once I finish off my stack of books. I banned myself from buying anymore til there gone and done with......though that may change tomorrow. 

Inside Out is mostly a survival book and in the last few pages it turns into a little romance. No love triangle, woohoo (sorry to those who love them). It stayed true to it's genre and I like that. Not one genre trying to take over the other :). 

A moving plot and the cover has more to say than I thought. This book is one of those that I loved from the beginning because of the cover. It caught my eye with the blue and wouldn't let me go until I bought it and brought it home in my warm embrace.

Remakes, why oh why?

So I was just on facebook and saw one of my favorite movies posted something on their page and the sad thing is, that they actually thought it would be exciting news.....what they didn't know was there was going to be a lot of backlash towards the idea.

A Dirty Dancing remake. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, what I just said is the latest remake in our midst. Why they think it's a good idea is beyond me.....okay, that's a lie. It's probably just a quick way of earning some big bucks, I've got a better idea for you Hollywood people, JUST PUT THE ORIGINAL BACK IN THEATER'S. You'll save so much more money that way and those millions could actually go to something useful. (I know....wishful thinking)

Sorry for that it's just I love this movie and I don't know about you people but.....I'm kind of tired of all the remakes coming out lately. Seriously Hollywood, you're really out of ideas were you have to continue making all of these horrid remakes.

Most of the time they're saying it's for the new generation and to tell you, I am apart of that generation and I fully believe this is a horrid idea. I grew up with this movie along with Footloose (sadly, that too, became apart of this new trend. Seriously just put the original back in theaters). I promise you'll get the old generation along with the new.

Whenever it was on TV no doubt we had it playing, whether to watch or just background noise that we could never get tired of.

Now, whether they think we won't like the original or what, they've got to change it for 'this' so called new generation. Which gives them the opportunity to use all the new fancy toys they got themselves. They think the new toys will make the movie better, but we all know it won't. Because sadly, it just won't have that old charm we all know and love.

So pretty much this is a post for my ranting and I'm sorry if you get lost and it's confusing, but.....I just had to get it out of my system. Truthfully I'm hoping this project fails and flops but I doubt that'll happen.

The only hope we all have is Kenny Ortega, whom choreographed the original and will be directing this remake. So cross our fingers that maybe some of the old charm will be there. I guess we'll see..... :(  

And here's the songs, sorry to say a couple are only :30 seconds but anyways I hope you enjoy. Sorry it's a link for some reason the actual playlist just doesn't want to post today.

Summer Songs (2)

I've been hearing this song alot lately, even though it came out last year, sad to say it took us that long to show case it like it should be showcased.

I probably hear this song maybe, 3 to 4 times a day on the radio but even then I never get tired of it. So ladies and gentlemen I give to you If I Die Young by The Band Perry,

My Super Psycho Sweet 16

The film follows a girl named Madison Penrose, spoiled throughout her life to the extent that she convinces her parents to re-open Roller dome for her Sweet 16. Obviously, the Roller dome once closed because a series of brutal murders took place at the locale, and, of course, the killer comes back to wreak havoc during her party.

So over the weekend I finally decided to sit down and take a few hours out of my life to watch one of Mad TVs original movies, My Super Psycho Sweet, which made it's debut on the screen October 23, 2009.

If you couldn't tell already that the genre is horror, it is. Reminded me more of all the older slashers films where it isn't to over the top with all the special effects, though, yes in times the blood scenes can be cheesy and you could tell they were added on later by computer but that's pretty much it.

Of course being a slasher means one by one everybody dies, except only the people who pick on the main girl. Friends of hers are left alone and out of the equation for death. Like most slashers you pretty much know who the psycho bad guy is but nonetheless, it doesn't take anything away from the film.

The acting was mediocre but sometimes it'll become a little more than that. For the main girl, who's been haunted from her fathers past, gets a sweet little innocent romance that'll just put a smile on any hopeless romantic out there. I know I couldn't help it, even though it was a horror.

Now the story develops nicely however there are some parts in the movie that feel a little slow but I don't think they're enough for you to have to shut off the TV screen, but, just forewarning. Like (not wanting to spoil but....) there's a favorite scene of mine that I just have to talk about that really gets the movie going, so...

When the dead girl rolls into the birthday girls ugly cake is amazing, and I know....I'm sick. So I promise you'll be entertained and for true horror fans if you see it on TV you've got to catch it. Now all I have to do is catch part 2 and yes, there's a part 2 for all those out there that have seen it but didn't like. But I'm not hating, we all have our likes and dislikes.  Over all I give it,

 4 hearts
