what to watch

Today, I've put together a list of things I'm looking forward to watching, have watched or think you might like to watch to! Some are already available for viewing, whereas others you might have to wait a bit, but hopefully, for our sake, it will be worth the wait!

I don't know too too much about this film except for the following:

1. Brad Pitt stars.

2. IMDB gives it a 7.4 rating.
3. IMDB's plot synopsis about the film describes it as, "(an) Epic tale of three brothers and their father living in the remote wilderness of 1900s USA and how their lives are affected by nature, history, war, and love."

Plus, I've been told it's a Brad Pitt film you have to watch if you haven't seen it. To be honest I haven't watched too many of his films. I've seen The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and am on my way to watching Thelma and Louise next time I'm at the video store, but I want to see what the hype is about about Pitt. So, I think I may just have to watch this movie, Troy and Thelma and Louise this month. (Just maybe.)

Now, I've actually yet to see this myself, but I've only heard good things. Well, mostly I've heard "You have to watch it!" I'm guessing it's one of those movies that every girl has to see in her lifetime. It's probably one of the most classic romances of all time, if not the classic. This one will take some time to view though as it branches into a 238 minute time mark. Yowza! However, this film did win 10 Oscars in it's time and was nominated for 16 all together. One Oscar taken home was Vivien Leigh's Best Actress win. Also, if you're a book junkie, it's based on the novel Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.

5. Lars and the Real Girl (2007) 
It's currently available on Netflix, stars Ryan Gosling and deals with psychological issues in the process. I would probably describe it as a dark comedy. Gosling does a great job playing Lars ,and the supporting cast is very believable in their roles. If you haven't seen it I suggest watching it. It falls just under two hours and is a great sit down film you can watch with a variety of people.

4. New Season of PLL Tuesday January 7th 8/7c
Allison's Alive! What can this mean for the liars? Are they this much closer to discovering EzrA? The suspense is boggling! Also, I'm looking forward to the fashion. Praise their wardrobe people and stylists. Every season is more fantastic than the rest, both in plot and fashion. I'm Addicted!

3. New Season of Baby Daddy premieres Wednesday January 15th 8:30/7:30c
This season of Baby Daddy is bound to throw us for a loop, relationship wise. Who's Riley (Chelsea Kane) going to end up with? Is it Danny (Derek Theler) or will it be Ben (Jean Luc Bilodeau)? That aside, we're sure to get some laughs from a great chorus of comedians that is this cast. Melissa Peterman absolutely shines in laughs as Bonnie Wheeler and Tahj Mowry is just as entertaining! If you haven't watched it yet, I suggest catching up on! It is my understanding that a majority of the cast are friends in real life too. This is evident on screen, because the chemistry of this group is just as lively. 

2. The Oscars on ABC March 2nd, 2014 7e/4p

Drum roll please! Whether you're a movie fan or not, I figure it's always at least a little interesting to see who takes home the big prize for their work in film. Plus, Ellen DeGeneres is hosting this year! What's not to love about that? I'm still rooting for Robert Redford as Best Actor for his film All is Lost. He's been nominated for a Golden Globe so far. Who do you want to see get nominated? Do you think the nominations will be closely intertwined with those who have been nominated at this years Golden Globes? I guess we'll have to find out on January 16th when the Oscar nominations are announced. Until then, here's to hope for all of your favorite actors, yours and mine, that is. 

1. The New Season of Sherlock come January 19th, 9:58ET
Benedict Cumberbatch blew up the big screen this year with great roles in The Fifth Estate, Startrek Into Darkness, August Osage County and 12 Years a Slave. His role in Sherlock is no different than the stoic-ness he presented in these films. His presence is alarmingly eloquent and respectable. This guy is an Oscar shoe in if he keeps following this career path. Sherlock is available on the BBC, so I'm not sure how to tell you to watch it. Some seasons are available on Netflix as of now. In the meantime though, I'll try and discover a way for you to view it when it's still new! The old ones are definitely not unseasoned though. They are good. It's like watching a mini-movie each episode! Obviously, I'm a big fan. Plus, if you like The Hobbit and you enjoy Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, you'll love him as Doctor Watson. His facial expressions are glorious.
