This week has been a mediocre movie week. Most of the films were just good but I don’t know how many I will rewatch ever or be able to go wild over. Usually if I rate something with 3 stars it means it was good but probably not something I’d watch again. 4 stars means I will watch it again because I thought it was wonderful and memorable. 5 stars is very rare to see from me. I am harsh in my movie ratings. It has to blow my mind away for me to see it over and over and love with intensity.

Movie Suggestions/Ratings
Elf 2003 (w/ Will Farrell & Zooey Deschanel) – 4 out of 5 stars
Invicible 2006 (w/ Mark Wahlberg) – 3 out of 5 stars
Punisher: War Zone 2008 (w/ Ray Stevenson) – 1 out of 5 stars (we gave this film about 20 minutes worth our time then turned it off it was sooo lame)
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir  1947 (w/ Gene Tierney & Rex Harrison) – 3.75 out of 5 stars
He’s Just Not That Into You  2009 (w/ Gennifer Goodwin, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, and many many others who aren’t named Jennifer/Gennifer) – 3 out of 5 stars
Scrooged 1988 (w/ Bill Murray & Karen Allen) – 3.5 out of 5 stars
Cover Girl 1944 (w/ Rita Hayworth & Gene Kelly) – 3.5 out of 5 stars

Speaking of Cover Girl, While I was watching it I took some screen captures.
I loved the wonderful dresses and hairstyles in this scene epsecially. Tons of woman trying to get a modeling job. They focus on a few of them and I was in awe of how amazing the costumes were.
Rita Hayworth – Redheaded wonder!
The handsome and super talented Gene Kelly doing a dance along side himself. He has always been my favourite musical dancer. I also like his singing voice but not as much as his dances. Look how wonderful his outfit is!
And inspired by the movie I was working on my hair, but the problem is that my boys were eating as I was diong this so I did it in about 3 minutes and didn’t fix it up before taking the photos. So here’s some messy 40s up-do style!

Music Suggestions
Lately I’ve been listening to the following Christmas albums the most:
Relient K – Let it Snow Baby. . Let it Reindeer
Louis Armstrong – What a Wonderful Christmas
Happy Christmas vol. 1 (1998 various artists)
Sufjan Stevens – Songs for Christmas (5 volumes collection)

I love this song a lot, give it a listening to:
