Body Of Lies


I got to say going in this not really knowing about it, kind of made it all the more interesting. Watching everything unravel at the start was great. It just takes you right in there and leaves you there.
Ridley Scott is perfect for this type of film, and he has such a great cast. Leonardo is such a fantastic actor and he was perfect for the role, I thought he was fantastic. Russell Crowe was good, he was better in American Gangster imo, but he was quite solid. Mark Strong was fantastic as Hani, I thought he was quite the surprise. He gave a very multi-layered performance, which made his character all the more intriguing. Actually Vince Colossimo was pretty good, what a surprise to see him. I felt a few things were predictable in the film (the stuff with Aisha), but there were some other things I actually didn't see coming, so it was good in that respect for me. It kept me interested all the way through, which was great, it takes a different direction half way through but it did work for me. I'd recommend this one for sure, especially check it for DiCaprio, he is fantastic.

8 days to go

Well next Monday the removalists are coming and then next Tuesday morning we'll be leaving for Melbourne. Not long now and a whole new life, fresh start, its all very exciting but also very stressful getting all this done. It'll be nice once we get there and unpack and everything. Hopefully I wont be out of work for long, surely something will come up for me soon.

My PC decided to crap out on me, I seriously just want to throw it out the window, stupid thing!

Anyway must be off for now, ciao peeps.

Eagle Eye


This film is terrible, plain and simple. It starts off promising enough, but as soon as things start to happen it just gets worse and worse and more ridiculous. It is so unbelievable on all levels, it expects its audience to be extremely stupid. I found most of the action to be pretty terrible as well. Shia LaBeouf who I think is usually pretty good, isn't that great here, not very convincing. Who knows what Michelle Monaghan was thinking she was terrible and she is usually pretty reliable. Everyone else is wasted from Michael Chiklis to Billy Bob Thornton who clearly went into this for the pay cheque. Do yourself a favour, save your time and money and watch something more plausable and enjoyable.

Whoa its been awhile

Holy crap, it has been awhile since I've actually blogged! I guess a lot has happened and I just haven't really had the time!

Well first things first, I am no longer a single girl. I have a partner in crime, and he really is the best thing of all time!

Next time, I am moving out of Adelaide in just 2 weeks! Having secured a Unit for me and Mum just outside of Melbourne, right near my sister, I am getting out of here and starting fresh! Just need to find a job to get me started and then next year complete high school. Life is getting on track WOOHOOOO!

Unfortunately with the move I had to find new homes for my two cats River and Billy. They both have new homes now, and it seems like they went to the right people and they will be loved and looked after and make some people happy. Toby on the bright side is coming with us, and he's still going strong.

I finish work next Friday and I couldn't be happier to finally be leaving there. With all my health issues that place has given me, I should be better then ever once I finally stop working there. My back should hopefully get much better as long as I look after myself which I shall do.

I actually got behind the wheel of a car thanks to my partner in crime who gave me a short lesson and I drove a little bit down the street and did a few turns and reversed a little. It was my first time driving a manual so I was scared out of my mind but I did calm down eventually. Apparently there is hope for me yet. I did better driving Dads automatically because there is nothing to that basically. But his car is twice the size of Mums, so being it was so big was pretty overwhelming when I drove, and Dad is not the best teacher, with his zero patience lol.

So much to do and so little time, hopefully by tomorrow we'll have the removalists sorted and I can keep packing what I can and everything. Big pain moving, it'll be nice once we get there finally and can unpack. Should be an interesting rest of the month, which will end with my birthday YAY! I will be turning 24, so hard to believe too. Time flies, it really does!

Well if I can actually manage I'll have a few film reviews up at some stage. Well over and out for now peeps!
