Movie Review: Sex and Death 101

Seriously Netflix has opened up a whole new world of movie watching for us. Random movies that I had never even heard of being suggested to me and voila we can watch it when we have the time. And since I've been on such a Simon Baker kick lately I decided to check out one of his movies, Sex and Death 101.

How do I sum up such a strange movie? Well Simon Baker's character, Roderick Blank, receives an anonymously sent email listing off all of the women he's ever had sex with and will eventually have sex with, which leads him to question his pending marriage and thus leads to him becoming quite the ladies man. While all of this is going on there is a femme fatal on the loose, Death Nell, putting womanizing men into comas and leaving bizarre messages on their walls.

Pretty much this movie had a whole lot of naked people, cursing, sex scenes, Simon Baker, more naked people, a couple funny sidekicks, a magical computer and some more sexual innuendos. That's about it really. It was funny in parts, I'll give it that but I don't know that I'll add it to our instant queue again any time soon, it was just so weird sometimes.

However, it wouldn't be all that horrible to watch Simon Baker in action for two hours again, haha.

Movie Review: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

Matt and I are now the proud owners of a Netflix account and it is awesome. I seriously don't know why we didn't have it sooner? Well then again we didn't have a BluRay player that could let us stream movies live until Christmas so that sort of instigated our NetFlix venture. Nonetheless, we can now stream movies and watch them whenever we want as well as request them and it is awesome. And the first movie we streamed....Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.

I sort of really enjoyed this movie. Yes it has every aspect of a quirky indie/Michael Cera movie but I thought it was adorable and funny and entertaining and just cute. I also love that the movie takes place all in one night, one very long night in New York City and it's just quite an adventure.

Pretty much the gist of the movie is as so: Nick (Michael Cera) is in a band and getting over a crazy ex girlfriend, Tris, when he meets Norah (Kat Dennings) and the night goes from there as everyone searches for the infamous band Where's Fluffy as well as trying to locate Norah's incredibly drunk friend, Caroline. Caroline was probably one of the funniest characters in the movie besides Nick's gay band members because they had me laughing every time they were on screen together. Also I just loved how care free these kids were and how they were all up literally all night and learned all sorts of life lessons like good moral movies do but not without mishaps and hilarious adventures.

Pretty much if you want a quirky coming of age Michael Cera movie, this one's for you. Also, Where is FLUFFY???

Brand Review: LuShae Jewelry

A week or so ago I was contacted by Australian based Sarah at LuShae Jewelry asking if I'd be interested in reviewing a piece of her jewelry. Um say what? Why yes I'd love some jewelry. Not only that but I got to pick out whatever piece from her store that I wanted.

So what did I decide on? Since I love necklaces I went with this Summer Bouquet.

Isn't it gorgeous? And super fun? And cute! And yeah I sort of like it a lot.

And check out that baby on me...

pretty right?

So what can I say about it that you can't tell from the pictures. Well I love the fun colors in the necklace, it's light (which is always a perk to me), the clasp is easy to put on by yourself (I hate super difficult clasps, I mean really, what's the point?) and it's super cute.

LuShae jewelry not only has necklaces, but earrings and rings as well. So head on over to check some cute styles for yourself.

I was given this necklace free-of-charge. The opinions are mine and were not influenced by any source. I was not compensated monetarily to advertise this brand.
