Monday Morning Madness #43: Monday's Rambling On a Tuesday!


No, you're not mistaken, today is not Monday, it is Tuesday; meaning this post is a day late, well actually, it is two months late, as my last Monday rambling was on March 25th. My intentions was to write this post yesterday, but since it was Memorial Day, I didn't have time to work on any new posts.

I did found some time to watch the Axel: The Biggest Little Hero DVD which I received an advanced copy of the computer-animated movie. Look for my review of the movie on June 3rd. And of course I watched the made-for-Lifetime Petals on the Wind, which is loosely based on the second half of the novel of the same name by V.C. Andrews. Though the acting was better than the first film, Flowers in the Attic, the sequel felt rushed and jumped around from scene to scene. If you have never read the book and did watch the movie last night, you were probably confused. The good news is that If There Be Thorns and Seeds of Yesterday will be made into movies, set to air in 2015.

I still haven't watched the Flowers on the Attic DVD that came out back in April, though I did watch it when it originally aired on television in January. I guess I keep procrastinating DVDs that I own, including Game of Thrones: Season Three, American Gothic: The Complete Series (I have had it for over two years), and the complete series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, which I have owned for several years.

A few months back I bought an brand-new DVD of Ocean's 11 and no I'm not talking about the George Clooney and Brad Pitt film. I'm referring to the original 1960 heist film starring Peter Lawford, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop. I'm a fan of the remake trilogy and I have always wanted to watch the 1960 movie. When I found the DVD for a dollar at a thrift store, I excitedly bought it, but like the others I mentioned above, I have never gotten around to watching it yet. I guess I must have a thing for movies set in Las Vegas, as I'm also a fan of The Hangover 1 & 3, Fools Rush In, Vegas Vacation and even the dreadful Leprechaun 3, which is weird considering the fact I have never been to Las Vegas. If I ever get a chance to go, I would love to visit the Mob Museum, the "Score" Hall of Fame Museum, Madam Tussauds Wax Museum, Caesars Palace and and any resort or casino owned by Stephen Wynn.

Maybe, I'll find time this summer to watch those DVDs.
