Weekly Stumblings

The great thing about blogs is that even though you can orient them towards a certain topic, veering off-course is never too crazy or unexpected.  Besides, when you’re your own boss, who’s gonna stop you?

Anywho, some of my readers may or may not be familiar with a little site known as StumbleUpon.  If you don’t, check it out.  But be warned: One does not simply stumble one more time.  In a nutshell, you give the site your interests and then it randomly brings one webpage up at a time that it thinks you’ll like.  From there you like (or dislike) pages so it can offer similar and better selections for you.

I only just started using it a week ago and have liked over 100 pages.  Many of these have included fat-inducing dessert recipes that will probably destroy my weight maintenance goals.  But there are quite a few pages which offer something quite different and interesting.  And since I love to share finds–even with complete strangers–I thought I’d offer another recurring feature for my blog which I simply call “Weekly Stumblings.”  Given how much I love the site and the fact I still get a bit of free time from my job, it shouldn’t be too tough to keep these coming.  And it means I’ll have at least one post to provide each week.

And these will be posted every Monday so that the few followers I have might have something to help brighten the worst day of the week.  So here are the first of many Weekly Stumblings:

Quote Review: Ratatouille (2007)

“Since you’re all out of perspective and no one else seems to have it in this BLOODY TOWN, I’ll make you a deal. You provide the food, I’ll provide the perspective, which would go nicely with a bottle of Cheval Blanc 1947.”

A film that leaves you hungry for the right reasons. Ratatouille stands as one of Pixar’s best (and most surprising) releases, combining the usual blend of interesting characters who keep you invested, engaging themes and excellent pacing. Even better is the fact some good points are made (as always) without impeding the compelling plot and overall entertainment value.

Quote Review: Hugo (2011)

“Don’t forget to smile.”

Hugo succeeds as a beautiful tribute to the passion of film-making while possessing a strong heart to both its characters and its story. It’s a rare feat, and especially so given what Martin Scorsese has directed for his entire career. As a result, Hugo easily manages to be one of the year’s best releases and a must-see for anyone with a distinct passion for the history and beauty of film.
