My Easy Love For Santa Fe, New Mexico

I’m a planner by heart, and spending months outlining every day of my drive along Route 66 was almost as much fun as the trip itself. Almost. Although our pace was speedy, there were a few spots along the way where I knew I wanted some extra time to explore, like Santa Fe. I had never been to New Mexico before and I was excited to explore its many quirky spots, including its capital city. Thankfully, I was correct in my assumptions about Santa Fe, and my time there quickly became a highlight of ...

Bankrupt Airline Wants Passenger to Pay For Flights That Never Took Off

oneworld airline air berlin was a basket case -- which is how Etihad bought into it in the first place. When Etihad withdrew its support, tired of the losses at the German carrier as well as at Italy's Alitalia, it collapsed. The bankruptcy administrator is seeking up to $2 billion in damages from Etihad. But they are also going after a passenger -- to pay for a flight that never happened, because it was for travel after the airline shut down. Continue reading Bankrupt Airline Wants Passenger ...

Why did the chicken cross the road

Its very overcast today after the long rainstorm last night making us think that our planned day on the beach is not the best plan after all. We have therefore decided to get up late and have a slap up breakfast back at the restaurant round the corner.

The Road From Valahnúkamöl to Krýsuvík Thermal Area in Iceland

After visiting the cliffs of Valahnúkamöl, I first visited The Blue Lagoon — although I decided not to go into it — before I was going to attempt to visit a few other areas of the Reykjanes Peninsula on what was still my first day in Iceland after having arrived from the United States earlier that morning. Highway 425 follows the coast of the southern peninsula. Before I arrived at the cliffs of Valahnúkamöl, traffic moves either north or sough; but after that point... The post The Road From Val...

Johnny Be Good

I was mostly interested in watching this because of the cast, and not really because I remember it being a good movie or anything. Seeing Anthony Michael Hall play a jock still feels weird, and oh my, Uma Thurman was so amazingly cute (in her debut film, as the “Introducing” in front of her name during the opening credits announces). As is often the case with films of this era, it’s incredibly sexist, and silly as hell, but I tried to just place myself in “time machine” mode, and sorta enjoyed ...

Coming to America

The biggest surprise for me was how much I enjoyed watching this, and still found it to be so incredibly funny. Sure, I have fond memories of it, but I wasn’t expecting it to have aged well. But yeah, this is still so oh-so funny, and it was a delight to see Murphy and Hall disguised while playing all those wacky characters (I had completely forgotten about this). Still well worth watching, and possibly Murphy’s best comedy film? (I still have a certain fondness for Trading Places though, and t...

Monkey Shines

I won’t say it’s a bad movie, but I feel like the movie just takes way too long to turn into the “horror” film it’s billed as. The first hour is a bit of a slog to get through — as the main character deals with his accident and the aftermath. Things get a bit more interesting when the monkey starts doing its thing, but it felt more like a “science gone wrong” film than horror — and the way he defeats the monkey (and the way it’s shot) is hilariously silly. I also tend to stay away from movies b...

Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood

I’ve watched a lot of Friday the 13th movies since I’ve started doing my 80s movie marathons (4, 5, 6, and 7), and I think this is my favorite one. If you think back on the series, this is close to being the most archetypical (at least of the ones I’ve re-watched). Sure, the mind powers of the girl are a bit silly, but you have a well executed zombie-like Jason, teens at Crystal Lake (doing silly teens things), and all sorts of gruesome kills — although what I’ve discovered re-watching these is...
