Pass the Popcorn, Please!

After a night at the movies to see the final Harry Potter movie (which was amazing by the way!), I realized that there are several movies I am looking forward too! Here are a few of them along with a small amount if information and the trailer (if there is one).

Note: Movies are in order of being released.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Finally!  After the success of the first Sherlock movie, how could the producers deny themselves the opportunity to make a sequel.  According to Wikipedia, Holmes and Watson take on their arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty with the help of Holmes' older brother and a gypsy woman.  Sounds good to me!  This movie is to be released December 2011.

The Hunger Games
The popular trilogy is finally hitting the big screen.  The Hunger Games tells the story of a future barbaric society in which killing is viewed as entertainment.  Each year two children from each district are sent into the arena; only one leaves.  Until Katniss and Peeta defy the government and spark a revolution when they both leave the arena.  The movie is scheduled to be released March 2012.
The Dark Night Rises
This is probably the movie I am anticipating the most!  I absolutely loved The Dark Night and was awed by the performance of both Christian Bale and Heath Ledger.  These two great actors, playing opposing roles, dominated the screen.  In The Dark Night Rises, the villain is Bane; a lesser known evil in the world of superheroes.  This movie is set to hit theaters July of 2012.

The Bourne Legacy
I thought that The Bourne Ultimatum was going to be the last in the Bourne Trilogy but it appears I was wrong.  The Bourne Legacy is still in pre-production and as far as I can tell, the storyline is still in the works.  And it is unclear is Matt Damon will be reprising his role as Jason Bourne.  I, for one, hope so.  I really like the other Bourne movies and it just would be the same without Damon.  The movie will be released in August 2012.

A Midsummer Night's Blog

Goodness!  Can you believe summer is halfway over?  I feel like it was only a week ago that I was finishing finals and moving into my apartment.  Everything that could happen to make tonight a perfect summer night is happening.  I am sitting on my balcony writing this and watching the sunset fade behind those Utah mountains in a wounderous display of pinks and oranges; smelling that it-just-rained smell; and listening to the baby birds quietly chirping in their nest in the dark stairway.  What a good day.  Such a simple night.  Peaceful.

Throughout these past couple of weeks, I have been especially inspired by my idol, Taylor Swift.  Some people would take a failed relationship and would take their anger and frustration out physically or emotionally on someone else.  Instead, she channels that negative energy into a song.  A song that touches millions because of the blatant truthfulness of it.  I believe that she is popular because her songs are relatable for so many people.  So, lately I have been working on writing my own song.  It is a rough and slow process, but I am determined to finish it.  I have been trying to draw from real experiences and put that emotion into a song. And I hope that the more songs I write, the easier it will be to put those emotions into words.  And who knows, if I like the finish product, I may put it on here for some feedback ;)

This Ain't A Fairy Tale

In fairy tales, the bad guy is always wearing a black cape, and you always know who he is. And then you wake up and you grow up. And when you grow you up, you realize that maybe Prince Charming isn’t as easy to find as you thought and that maybe the bad guy is not so easy to spot. Maybe the bad guy is not wearing a black cape at all. In real life, the bad guy is actually really, really cute.
