Miss Fisher murder mysteries, Alica Mckenna Johnson

I am in love with the Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries. I want to be Phryne Fisher so bad! She is smart, sassy, sexy, and stylish, with the money to make 1920s fashions look so amazing, I would actually trade my yoga pants for her clothes! I also wouldn’t mind all the sexy men she takes to her bed 🙂 Set in Melbourne in the late 1920’s Phryne needs something to do and becomes the first female private detective, much to the horror of the local police detective Jack Robinson.

A wonderful cast of quirky characters, adorably sexy shyness, and swoon worthy suits and gentlemanly manners along with suspenseful mysteries make this an amazing show.
There are two seasons out, and I am hoping it continues.

A Brand New Day, Awesome Blogs, and an Update

Standard


A Brand New Day is a musical set in 1960s Australia. It is a funny look at the life of an aboriginal boy who is being shipping off to seminary school in the city. He is forced to leave behind his mum and the girl he loves but hasn’t yet had the courage to talk to.

Captain Barbosa makes a wonderful priest who chases our wayward hero from the big city through the outback. Our hero is propositioned for sex many times, is helped by a very stuff hippy and bursts into song frequently.

This is a fun, campy movie. I enjoyed myself and would probably watch it again.

Sorry I could find a trailer 😦

ACK I feel asleep before updating the fun blogs for the week and I have Sherlock LOL’s to share!!!

August reminds us that our workout and our social media should be and can be fun!

Is Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) an otter?

Foreign Film Friday

Standard

It took me reading other people’s posts to realize that it’s October and people were doing Halloween themed blogs. So of course I had to join because there are some really great scary foreign films out there. I’ve already done: The Host and Dead Snow, both excellent foreign horror movies and if you haven’t seen them you need to. For the month of October I’ll be reviewing two foreign horror movies for you all to enjoy.  I’ll even try and mix up the countries because it would be too easy for me to stick with Asian horror movies, they make some creepy stuff.

So today I have two very different offerings for you Ringu and Black Sheep.

Ringu is the original Japanese movie of The Ring. The American version is scary- the Japanese one is scarier. The filming is amazing, the acting far better then the American one, and something about the unfamiliar culture, environment, and plot steps makes the Japanese one ever scarier. Grab you favorite person or pet and huddle in for Ringu.

The next horror movie is a classic creature horror movie Australian film Black Sheep. It’s baaadddd (sorry I couldn’t help myself) but it’s bad in a good fun way. I don’t remember being scared, but I was grossed out and I laughed a lot. There might have been one or two creatures jumping out of know where which made me jump. It’s a must see for creature horror movie fans.

What’s your favorite campy creature film?
