New releases usually come out on Fridays. So in the spirit of that (I wrote this post on friday), I thought I’d list some of the movies I want to see that are soon to be released. And if you tend to be like me and sometimes dont like paying so much to the theaters, I thought I’d give you some cool netflix picks!
First, for the theater releases:
This film looks awesome! Foodie or not, I think everyone gets competitive and this is looks like a great film, with the added fun of food porn!
The same guy that made “An Inconveinent Truth” directed this film. I’ve been wanting to see it for some time now, but I actually heard a “so so” review for it on the radio today. I don’t care, I still am itching to see it.
This next film has one thing going against it, that Emma Roberts is in it. I worked with her on her Nickelodeon show a few years ago when I was trying to be an actress like everyone else in LA. She’s not a very good one…but maybe I’m just jealous because her aunt is “Pretty Woman”. Anyhow, I do want to see this film regardless of her:
Here are films I HAVE seen, available on netflix that I think are well worth your time (and trust me, most arent long because I get peeved by super long movies).
The one below is a great Isreali film (yes, I’m half Israeli, so maybe I’m biased). But seriously, this won many awards and very moving and funny at the same time. Its also based around a Jewish holiday which is actually celebrated this week.
This next film is one of the most charming films around. Besides the fact that I am a huge Craig Fergison fan, this film is really one of a kind. I nearly peed my pants in this one particular scene (you’ll know which one if you watch it!).
I’m sure many of you have seen this film, or at least heard about it. I absolutely loved and it and I think I’d like to own it someday. Sadly, the writer/director passed away about a year ago and this was her last film. But I think it was so brilliant and just made me want to eat some pie (and I’m not a big fan of pies!).
Since I have loads of yummy jars of Crofter’s, I thought I’d use some up in non-dessert forms! Don’t forget you can win yourself 4 jars of any kind you want in my giveaway! Heres the ingreidients:
-8-10 large shrimp (feel free to use seitan or tofu)
-2 or so tablespoons of Crofters apricot preserves
-some water (to thin out the jam)
-shredded coconut (enough to coat)
Super simple! simply microwave the jam with the water and when all melted, mix with the shrimp. Then coat the shrimp with the coconut and put in the preheated 400 degree oven for about twenty minutes. Serve over a salad or rice!
