"Facebook and I have been together for almost three years now. But we've both gone through a lot of changes recently *COUGH*FACEBOOK* and I think it's time to take a little break..."

The Net

I really enjoy watching this movie - it takes me back to the beginning days of the Internet. Remember, dial-up and floppy disks? They are all featured in this film.

I especially like Sandra Bullock's character. A gurl any "geek gurl" can relate to - she a cool, smart, witty, tech expert - an all around awesome gal.

It's pretty scary to imagine that all our information is stored on computers. Identity theft is a scary thing - very realistic and probable in our world today. We've all heard that saying "Knowledge is power." Well, computers are now the ones with all the "knowledge", our information, and having access to so much information is indeed, power.

Definitely worth checking out this movie if you're in the mood for a thriller/suspense. Speaking of suspense, don't you just love it when you're watching that part in a movie when someone starts downloading information onto a disk and it's taking too much time to get it downloaded? (Remember, Office Space?) There's some suspense for you!

Check it out!

Raging Bull (1980)

Since I'm a big Martin Scorsese fan, I decided to check out this movie based on the life of Jake LaMotta, a former boxing world middleweight champion.

I liked how the movie was portrayed in black and white - probably to show the sign of the times as it was set in the 1940s/1950s.

Robert De Niro
and Joe Pesci were both great - check it out!

My Cousin Vinny

This is an "oldie" but a "goodie." I really enjoy watching this movie - it makes me laugh.

I was in the mood for a good comedy movie and decided on this one. As always, Joe Pesci is very entertaining to watch. Here's one of my favorite scenes from the movie:

(I especially like the end of the clip with the talk about the "grits". Two of my favorite lines - "I guess I'm a fast cook" and "Are those magic grits?" Classic).

Definitely an entertaining movie to watch if you're in the mood for a good laugh. Check it out!

Heat (1995)

Ok, I have to admit - I'm a really big fan of heist movies (aka "scores"). (Can't you tell since I'm into gangster movies?)

I really enjoyed this movie. It had an all-star cast. I really enjoy watching both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino on the big screen - they are both great actors.

One of my favorite quotes from DeNiro, which he says in this movie (and he's said this in a couple of other movies) is:

"It is what it is."

This movie had lots of action with a lot of twists and turns. So many times, I thought it was going to go in one direction but surprised me going in another.

Definitely worth the watch if you're looking for a good heist movie. Check it out!
