Fall into Winter 2014

Hello to the few people who still read my blog, thank you for reading. So I’ve been MIA for 2 months now, which is something a new blogger should not do. I’m sorry but I’m back (until my semester starts) and I have a lot I want to blog about.

Here goes,

Fall is my favorite time of the year which is pretty ironic because the two places I’ve lived all my life only have one season which is summer. Nevertheless, I love the idea of fall, pumpkin pie, sweatshirts, cooler weather, leaves changing colors and most of all the best movies are release during the fall.  The movies on this list are some of the year’s most anticipating movies, some you may not know -as yet- and others you can’t stop thinking about and is dying to see.

1. Gone Girl (October 3) With his wife disappearance on their fifth anniversary Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) becomes the focus of an intense media eye. As the police investigates further into his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike) disappearance, the media turns on him when it’s suspected that he may not be innocent. We all know the book written by Gillian Flynn by the same name and most of us read it and hate that we love it. Gillian Flynn screen-write the movie along with David Fincher whose directing. With an alternative ending book-readers and movie-goers are going to love this movie. I can definitely see this in the running for best picture and actor at 2015 Oscars.

2. Interstellar (November 5)         Interstellar is definitely the years most anticipated movie, it’s the first movie Matthew McConaughey stars in, coming off his big Oscar win for Dallas Buyers Club earlier this year. Along with McConaughey, the movie stars a mass of other Oscar winners such as: Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastian, Michael Caine just to name a few. Interstellar is about a space travel story about a group of astronaut trying to find an inhabitable planet to replace Earth because Earth is on the brink of extinction. The movies written by Christopher and Jonathan Nolan and directed by Christopher Nolan who we all know from the Dark Knight trilogy and Inception. Nolan has yet to win a Oscar he’s been snob too many times and this might be his lucky year.

3. Exodus God & Kings (December 12)   Following the trend of religious movie comes Exodus which is the name of the second book in the bible and it gives an account of Moses leading the Israelite slaves to freedom from Egypt. Christian Bale plays Moses, a role that is a long way from the Dark Knight, Joel Edgeton plays the pharaoh Rhamses, Aaron Paul as Joshua and Sigourney Weaver as Tyua. Director and Co-Writer Ridley Scott who is well know for movies like Prometheus and Gladiator, uses a state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion to bring this story to life.

4. Fury (October 17)


Fury follows a five men American tank crew in Europe on the final days of World War 2. Fury stars a mass of hunks such as, Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena just to name a few. It was written and directed by David Ayer who is know for Sabotage and End of Watch. The release was initially set for November 14 but was moved up to October 17. By the trailer Fury looks like the Saving Private Ryan of the 21st century which are pretty big shoes to fill but that’s how promising it seems for now.

5. FoxCathcher (November 14)

FoxCatcher is based on the true story of Mark Schultz, an Olympic wrestler whose relationship with sponsor John du Pont and brother Dave Schultz would lead to unlikely circumstances. It stars Channing Tatum as Mark Schultz, Mark Ruffalo as Dave Schultz and Steve Carell as John du Pont.  This movie isn’t a blockbuster and it probably wont make a big profit but it’s going one of the years most critically acclaimed movie. Steve Carell is one of Hollywood’s most diverse and underestimate actor.  Do I hear Oscar bells for Best and Supporting actor, too early to tell.

Noticeable Mentions

1. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

2. Dumb & Dumber To

3. Inherent Vice

4. The Hobbit

  These movies will definitely  make fall 100% better.  Which movie are you looking for too this fall?

The Liebster Award!!!


I didn’t know what this award was two days ago, I didn’t even know that they gave awards for blogging but now I’m nominated for it. The Liebster Award is to recognized new bloggers that deserves a platform to the bigger blogging world. Which is so cool and I would like to thank BB2 ( ) for nominating me. Its so crazy when someone read, like or comment on my blog. Thank you.

Like I said I didn’t know what the awards was about so like any other person I googled it. I have answer the question given, stated 11 random facts about myself, nominated 5-11 new bloggers who should bask in the Liebster glow.
OK here goes…

11. Random Facts

I don’t think I can name 11 facts about myself I’m quiet un-extraordinary, maybe that should be a fact haha, OK let’s be serious:
1. My name is Ashalee and I’m 18, I don’t think I ever mention that in any of my previous post.
2. I work part-time at a preschool but I don’t like kids ironic isn’t it. Not saying that I hate my job or anything I love it.
3. I’m going to college this fall and I’m studying Accounting, but I really want to study Journalism which I’m no good at.
4. The movie that started my love for films is Transformers thank you Michael Bay. I guess I’m a sucker for bad acting and explosions haha. But I’m all seriousness I loved how most of the movie was CGI and it looked so real. I know it wasn’t the first movie to use CGI but I was blown away.
5. My dream is to be a author but I have the less creative imagination ever. My mind is like a dessert, when I think too much it gets hot and dry.
6. In high school I never got higher that a C- in English and I was at the top of my class not to brag or anything. But I sucked at English and as you can tell I have the worst grammar. 
7. I tried to write a book once more like a short story with my brother but we had a falling out, Lets just say he thought it was his idea, OK you got me I was the one who went crazy.
8. The first novel I read was Frankenstein and then Twilight after that I became obsess with books. Books are my escapes and movies are my vacations
9. See I’m running out off things to say.
10. I’m kinda play the saxophone, will I’m still in the learning phase but I’m OK.


Question: In your opinion, what do you think makes for good comedy?
Answer: Speaking in terms of movie, an comedy needs the same things as any other film to succeed, a story, a great script, character and actors. Humor and timing are important. I have a weird sense of humor and I laugh at stuff your not suppose to so you need actors to push the line a bit and who will say/do anything to get a laugh, eg Seth McFarlane.
I like jokes that if its not funny its offensive. That’s just me.

I doubt that answer your question but I tried.
