Taking Movie Night To An Extreme

OMG!  It’s so on!  My girls called me and we’re planning a special night out because it’s one of their birthdays.  We’re going to have so much fun it’s reeeeeeeeeediculous.

So, fist off, we’re going to the movies.  YeYzaaaa!  And we’re going to let Tiffany pick what she wants to see.  We usually vote, but as it’s her birthday, we’re changing the rules.

She likes the rom-com, so I’m sure it’s going to be something in that direction.  Which is fine with me.  I don’t mind doing a laugh-love film every once in a blue moon.  As you know, I so much prefer a sci-fi or fantasy or action kind of movie.

Side note, there’s a couple really great sites online that you can stream and download awesome movies.  I can’t say them or I’ll get put in the internet jail, but email me:  movies@zunemods.net and I can get you the list.  Secrets are the bestest!

But back to the special night.  We’re doing a big dinner at one of our favorite spots.  Benihana.

Nothing like a good hot meal of deliciousness cooked right before you!  love me some lobster and steak.  That’s my combo.  And the fried rice!  oh and those two sauces!!!!

I think I still have one of those budha belly ceramic glasses you can get for your birthday.  My grandma always took me there.

Oh and my friend’s dad got us a Santa Clarita limo for the night.  Apparently, this place has some dope rides.  We were going to get a Hummer, but since there’s only

The Force is Strong with this One

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 6.20.06 PM Yup, that’s right! You know what I am going to talk about. As I have already told you, I have quite a taste in movies, especially action, sci-fi and fantasy. This happens to be one of the best movies in all three genres. So, this one is right up my alley. Why this movie interests me in particular is because of my curiosity to know whether the movie is going to take its legendary legacy forward or crush under the load of expectations. Don’t worry, no spoilers here.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has finally Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 6.20.00 PMreleased 10 years after the last installment of the Star Wars series was premiered in Los Angeles on Dec 14, 2015. Do you know how much money the latest installment grossed on its opening day? 528.9 million dollars! That’s right. The Force Awakens is now enjoying the distinction of the biggest worldwide opening in the history of world cinema.Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 6.20.41 PM

Star Wars is like a religion for many. The producers have kept the plot of the movie a secret until it was released. The internet has been abuzz with the movie memes hogging the better part of it. Even after the movie was released, there were constant requests to not reveal the story and for people to not spoil it for them. Well, I watched the movie recently, and out of respect for everyone who hasn’t yet, I am not going to reveal anything interesting. I will, however, share my two cents.

This movie by J.J. Abrams is a worthy descendant of the rich past of the franchise. It has been applauded across the board and rightly so. One of the main reasons the movie has done so well is that it resonates with the original trilogy by George Lucas. The movie has actually made the fans forget theScreen Shot 2015-12-23 at 6.20.47 PM botched prequels of the movie. It is humorous, great on action, and has a nostalgic feel to it.

The force is still making all the characters dance to its tune. It is an adventure with people meeting each other by chance. Like it has always been. It is set 30 years after the second Death Star was destroyed and is as emotional as it is funny. All the actors, whether it is Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill or Carey Fisher from the older generation or the new crop of actors, including Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley or John Boyega, have performed well. The new and old generation have stood together to deliver a movie that is remarkable and memorable.
Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 6.20.12 PMFilms like Star Wars do not happen every day. It is as much a part of American History as it is of every fan’s life. The Force Awakens certainly brought back fond memories and I was ecstatic to watch such a well-made piece of work. The movie has certainly not been crushed by its huge legacy. The old and the new have come together beautifully and I am definitely going to watch it in my Star War reruns.









First Death of the Season

Run for the hills!!!!


Vomit vomit vomit.  Do not watch this show!  It sucks!  And it’s already cancelled….so don’t worry.  It’s called Wicked City.

It’s sad too, cuz there are some really good actors in it.  Jeremy Sisto (yummy but old), Erika Christensen (from Traffic and Parenthood–dope movie and dope show) and it also had that guy from Gossip Girl.  I don’t really know if he can act, but he’s a hunk!

Rumor on him…the Gossip Girl guy.  Apparently, he’s such the professional that in the outtakes from the show….He’s not in any of them.  Don’t know if I respect him for that or if I think that’s weird and stupid.  Have some fun.  Enjoy making mistakes.  Be playful.  Life ain’t that serious.  Ya feel me!


Okay, Wicked City!  Crash and burn.  I couldn’t even get through the first episode.  So let’s cut to the chase.  Writing on a scale of 1-10 equalled a .5.  The plot (as if) was TUR-rible!!!!  And the acting was notches above soap opera acting.  But hey, those chaps make bank and work all the time.  I’d so love to be on a Soap.  Give me a holla Young and the Restless or General Hospital.  I got game.

Granted, it only got 3 episodes, so maybe it didn’t get comfortable or settle into to where they were trying to get to….but come on.  Don’t you feel like sometimes they are just throwing names together and hoping it sticks.  Remember Gray’s Anatomy?  The biggest name was Patrick Dempsey and he wasn’t that big.  They went with chemistry.  That’s what works.  How many shows are the dumb ass networks going to put on the air with big name after big name and have them all fail and then blame others.  Learn from your mistakes, that’s what my mom always said.  If you don’t and you keep repeating them over and over…that’ just insane.

Really, the more I think about it, it’s like let’s just do couple match making and forget about chemistry.  We’ll just pair people up based upon popularity and looks and yeah, those won’t end in divorce or MURDER!!!  HEEHEE.

Anyway, the show doesn’t really go anywhere and you can tell they just seem to be going for a paycheck.  But don’t stress, yo.  The show is DONE-ZO!  And so am I.  I got things to do and more movies and shows to watch.

Hey, what do you want me to review next?  Tell me?  I’ll check it out and give you the low down, yo down!

Peace Bitches.  Wendy OUT!

Diamonds Are Forever

Boldly going there!

OMG!  All I can say is he’s back.  And who knows how much longer he’s here for.

Wait for it.  Wait for it.

Daniel Craig is Bond.  James Bond.  And he’s H.O.T.!!!!!!  And can do no wrong.  He’s rugged, he’s sexy and he’s a man’s man.  What’s not to drool over?

Ok.  I haven’t seen the movie yet, but am dying to. Yes, I know it already came out and it is getting rave reviews.  I’ve got a gaggle of my gals coming over Tuesday and we’re going to do a night out!  I won’t even bore you with what I think, cuz it’s dreamboat-alicous. Don’t you agree?

Daniel Craig

Sorry for the massive photo.  I couldn’t resist.

Back to Bond.  Apparently, this one is about a blast from the past where he has to find an evil organization.  And then there’s M, who’s got her own troubles going on.  I love that they are getting M more into this on.  Oh, and how about those movie posters with the skull mask.  So creepy.

You’ve probably realized I’m biased.  Yup.  I have my opinions.  You can have yours.  I don’t really care what you think, just have a firm direction and don’t be wishy washy.

What’s your favorite Bond flick?  Who’s you favorite Bond actor?  Oh, and did I mention that I saw Daniel Craig at the airport once.  I was going through security and he must have just gotten through, cuz like a horde of people were all around him snapping a few photos.  Thank goodness his lady wasn’t on his arm.  I’d have given her a look to die for or a Goldfinger.  Heehee.

Okay, back to this movie.  I can’t wait to get the girls over and go check it out.  It’s kinda a thing we do.  Once a month we plan a huge group outing and have sh#$load of fun.  What’s so awesome is that there are so many of us that we literally take up an entire aisle.  We’ll stand on each side of the aisle and boy, the looks we’ll get when tell people they are all taken.  And not 10 minutes later, all our ladies come strolling in.  And them boys be drooling.

Off topic again.  So maybe this is going to be Movie and TV review with a bunch of real life stories to go along with it.  To keep you interested and giggling.

Yo—-if you dug this, hit me up with a comment.  Love to connect.  Or email me:  wendy@zunemods.net

Peace Bitches!  Wendy out!


Welcome To My New Bloggity Blog

Bienvenidos!  Welcome to my new site Zunemods and my blog.

Today is my first go at knocking your socks off with my Movie and TV thoughts and wisdom….And remember, what I say ain’t law, just my law.

As I was raised on the best of movies and TV, my palate is seasoned for quality.  I’m a connoisseur of many genres.

Let’s look at my most recent fascination:  Minority Report

Minority Report – the TV show.

I saw the movie years ago and will admit, I’m a HUGE Tom Cruise Fan.  He can do no wrong.  I’m not getting into any Scientology politics here either, because that’s not what this is about.  He’s a MOVIE STAR.  Period.

Now, back to the show.  I turned it on a couple days ago to kill the time.  See, I have Hulu, so it’s easy.  And I’ve seen a bunch of the stuff out there, but was hesitant to try Minority Report.  How could they do better than T.C.?  Well, since I couldn’t find anything else to watch and it was “recommended” to me by the God-almighty, Hulu—I figured, WTH!

Stoked that I did.  It’s a different take on it from the original.

The Premise

Basic gist is we’re in the future, and the 3 pre-cogs have been let loose after their program is deemed a failure.  They’ve been living lives in seclusion since.  Until one of them hooks up with a cop and they become partners, so to speak, and go after criminals.  Book ’em Danno! (throwback to another time on that one)

How good is it?  On a scale of 1-10, I give it an 8.  I really enjoy the sci-fi nature of the sure, but I don’t know if regular joe’s are going to pick up on it?  And nowadays, new shows aren’t given enough of a chance to prove themselves.  Rumor has it that they’ve cut the number of episodes for the season, so season #2 is iffy.

My Rec

If you’re a sci-fi fan, I say YES!!!!  If you have time to spare, enjoy.  If you don’t care that it might end abruptly or might not go past season one, do it. Otherwise, as much as I’d like to say watch it, I don’t wanna be pissing you off this early in my reviews.

There!  DONE!  comeback for the next review.  It’ll be a doosy!

Peace bitches!  Wendy’s out!
