Movie Review: Hall Pass

A married man is granted the opportunity to have an affair by his wife. Joined in the fun by his best pal, things get a little out of control when both wives start engaging in extramarital activities as well.


To Kate: Sorry for the late review.
I watched the movie, a week after the show date. I do not typically watch comedy genre on film anymore, lately it has been so rare to find something to watch that is truly funny but Hang Over kind of changed that perspective. I was not even going to watch this movie, but I heard so many commentary about it, that I have to watch it for myself.

They said it was almost as funny as the Hang Over. It's a bunch of b.s it was no where near the hang over. Sure the whole premise and the way the two douchebags acted (Rick & Fred) were laughable. I am not too sure about the acting. Maybe its because I am not the fan of Owen Wilson. The really funny moments were the first day of their hall pass, wherein they try to meet some ladies in Applebee's then later on concluded that Chili's would have been a much better choice. The scene where Owen fell asleep in the hot tub the the African-American man's private was right in his face was hilarious. Maybe I was too shocked that they actually showed it on film.But really other than that there wasn't anything special at all. Which proves that I should have never watched this on the big screen.

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6) by Richelle mead


Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules.

She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir’s Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir Princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardian to come.

Now the law has finally caught up with Rose- for a crime she didn’t even commit. She’s in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She’ll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.

But the clock on Rose’s life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back… and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your life is about saving others, who will save you?


REVIEW: *spoilers alert*

I haven't been reading a lot lately. Work and school just keeps me occupied and away from my love of reading but there is no way in hell, I am going to miss the next book(s) from my favorite series. I've had the Last sacrifice since the day it was released but never got the time to actually sit down and drown in its contents. But the road trip to San Francisco gave me that opportunity.

The plot of this series was well thought and filled with surprising twists and heart break. I think its what draws me into it. The last and final book about Rose was everything what I expected it to be. Danger, adventure, romance and tragedy. I did not see it coming, a murdered so close to all of them? and another Dragomir? Sure the last book obviously have all the clues that Lissa's father cheated but an illegitimate child? very very scandalous. I even like the cliche " I will never take another man's woman" but please, Dimitri who are you kidding? But like I said I love that cliche so no harm there. I was not too crazy about the ending, I am team Dimitri even when he became Strigoi and did all those horrible horrible things to Rose but I switched to team Adrian when Spirit Bound came out. It broke my heart that Rose broke his.

I really felt like the characters grew on me, they are like friends you see grow into something beautiful. They were all brilliant in their won way. Who ever thought that Rose's impulsiveness and stubborn nature transformed her into a hero. With what happen with Victor and everything else it is so easy to fall from grace or giver in to the darkness of the Spirit but she drew strength from people she love, and that's another cliche that will always work in my book.
