Monday's Movie and TV Talk! (2)

Welcome to Monday's Movie and TV Talk! I don't know if I'll do this every Monday, or just sporadically on Mondays, but I LOVE TV and movies, so I figured why not add some of that to the blog for fun?? It'll be especially awesome when I can tie things into the YA book world...
So I LOVE the TV show, Game of Thrones.  LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. It is epic in every sense. Beautifully filmed, great casting choices, surprising storylines (based on the books which I am slowly working my way through)...

Sooooooo...I am beyond excited to be able to share the teaser trailer for season 3 of Game of Thrones which will start up again in March!!

I also wanted to mention that I saw the movie Breaking Dawn, Part Two over the holiday weekend.  (I was super stoked, too, when I realized the tickets were only $5!! SWEET!)

Happily I went to the movies with another person who loves to lean over and make little comments like I do, so it wasn't a problem when I kept leaning over and saying things like,
Oh my God, fakest looking baby ever!
They're Amazons and vampires, they don't feel the cold...
OMG, so awkward to film that when you're dating in real life, too!
LOL.  Don't get me wrong.  There is just something about the train wreck that is each Twilight movie that I absolutely love...but no one will ever argue that they're really GOOD. These are not meant to be award winning movies...they're campy fun vampire romances, come on...
I am very glad at this point that I am done with the Twilight franchise.  It's been eons since the first book came out and honestly I am ready to be done with the whole thing...  but I'm not quite done with Stephenie Meyer.


  1. The Host does look good. I loved the book.

    BD2 is on my list of movies to watch, though I might wait for the DVD like I did with part one. I finally watched it just before part 2 was released (mostly because I didn't have time until then). I definitely had some eye rolling and cracking up moments during that one, but that's no different to any of the movies so far. :)

  2. Totally with you on the Twilight movies and I'm kind of glad they are done but wouldn't have missed the last one...And we should make a date to go see The Host when it comes out :)
