Nutritional Facts

 I wonder sometimes why other then for informational purposes do food companies post the serving size of a said product? And a follow up, does anyone actually only eat 28 goldfish? It's hard enough once the bag is open to try and close it and save it for another day. Instead can we just say, half the bag is 400 calories rather than concentrating on the amount you have to eat to stay under that amount. It is funny how movies and food go hand in hand in that way. In many ways they can be restrictive to audiences with ratings for children or adults. They can also restrict our access to go to the bathroom if you can't press the pause button or in the content being not what they portrayed in their catalyst trailer. I can't rate movies in the way they have been rated in the past, Rotten Tomatoes, stars or flixster.  I can only devise a way for myself, my own rules for watching movies just as there are rules and regulations for food. I'm building my own recipe so to speak. 

First off let me just say I watch a lot of movies, if you haven't figured that out yet. I watch them all the time and I do have favorites and one hit wonders. I also rewatch things I can't get enough of or use as back ground music for when I'm crafting or painting or doing things that don't need my eyes glued to a screen for 2.5 hrs. I don't you should be rating the same movie the same and for that reason I don't watch the oscars anymore. I used to be so excited about the oscars because it was a chance for my family to stay up late admiring fancy clothes. Same reason we watched olympic figure skating. In figure skating the judges rate a lot of different things and you can get disqualified for certain outfit choices. At the oscars winning votes are tallied and the movie just wins. I mean who ever has the most, it's basically picking your prom king and queen and their adoring subjects. Anyways I think I'm going to go bout this another way. As part of this experiment I will be using emojis, words, numbers and symbols. I will make my own voting system for the movies I review or write about. Each will be different and some will overlap. It's a good experiment as maybe in the end I'll have a better understanding of the film and what its real rating should be. Rather than what facts may portray.

Throw Mamma from the Train (1987): Danny DeVito brilliance

 Ever wonder if an actor can portray more than one character? I think we lump actors into categories. Some actors are always the prefect villain while others can't do anything, but super hero mode. For a long time I thought Danny DeVito could only play one characters or an emulsion of a few, none the less one. If you were to lump his characters together the recipe would be as follows. Danny DeVito iced coffee: Take 1 cup of sarcasm and scrape off the foam, make sure to cool gently before serving. Mix sarcasm and 2/3rds cup begrudgingly dark roasted attitude until fully frothed and skim the froth off this one as well, so that you are left with the smoothest taste of deeze nutz or beans, if your using actual coffee. Then Pour this mixture into a tall glass with ice and serve with your milk of choice. Garnish with a paper umbrella because if your'e serving Danny DeVito iced coffee it might as well be fancy.  Before I go further, I have to be clear, I have not seen every DeVito mov

The Laundromat (2019) VS Space Truckers (1996)

I'm posting this question, as an exercise in writing. Can two none relatable movies relate to each other? Or is it better not to force two things that are separate from each other into a predicament that could cause pain and possibly certain death. Like telling me mayo goes great on everything! I highly doubt this, but I'm sure there are  people in the world just heaping dollops on mayonnaise on unsuspecting banana splits like whipped cream.   I recently did a double feature with my boyfriend, after the second film I completely forgot the first. The first one being less strenuous in its special effects than the second by a few bars. We watched The Laundromat on Netflix. A in depth money laundering movie that explained the process of how to become a millionaire with offshore accounts rather than by the books via Money Laundering for Dummies. The movie starts off with a tragic accident and through insurance claims we find out the insurance is a fraud and is trying to defraud the
