The first time I saw Bend it like Beckham was because I adored Kiera Knightley and was making my way through her filmography during my Pirates phase. I'm also pretty sure it was brought to a "sports movie theme" sleepover party at my friend’s house. Theme movie nights were kind of our Saturday night thing...I … Continue reading FILM REVIEW: Bend it Like Beckham
I really struggled with trying to find a movie that appropriately related to my class field trip to Fullers Brewery. After finally deciding to let the experience remain in the recesses of my memory, I came across National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets on USA at 11pm at the perfect moment when Benjamin Gates and … Continue reading FILM REVIEW: National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets
While you might be confused as to why I’m reviewing a television show from 10 years ago, you must understand that for my last 8 weeks in London, I interned with Film London, the capital’s film and media agency (I used that line a lot in various cover letters, school reports, and really to just … Continue reading TV REVIEW: The Office (U.K.)
I'm the worst blogger ever. It's been almost two months since I last posted. The only thing I've actually blogged about that happened since Spring Break was The Hunger Games; and while that was obviously a life changing event, there were a lot of other life changing events. First one that comes to mind is … Continue reading I am…the WORST.
I love the movies. I’m interning in film, I’m applying for summer internships in film, I watch films all the time. But somewhere in the past year I’ve forgotten how much I love the movies. Physically going to the theater. Sitting in those plush seats as the lights go dark and the trailers (all of … Continue reading FILM REVIEW: The Hunger Games
Being in a sorority can have its perks abroad. Those horrid girls on TLC aren’t really helping my cause, but FIE certainly is. One of the academic advisors was a Sigma Phi Epsilon at his undergraduate university in the States (I forgot where...somewhere in the Middle. He also went to FSU, but I don’t hold … Continue reading FILM REVIEW: National Treasure
When one has the option of visiting the Tower of London for free, regardless of what one was doing the night before or what they should be doing that day, one 100% goes. To decipher that cryptic opening, the Friday before my Spring Break I had a UF Management exam at 10 am. Naturally, I … Continue reading FILM REVIEW: The Other Boleyn Girl
Amsterdam. Yikes. I'm only joking. Amsterdam was brilliant. And not for the sex and drugs (get your mind out of the gutter). We arrived into Amsterdam Central Station around 1:30pm on Thursday and then caught the Number 2 tram that would take us to our hotel (which was inconveniently out of city center, but conveniently … Continue reading SB2K12 Part 3: Amsterdam- It’s cool, I know you speak English.
To preface, any preconceived notion of Belgians we had involved crazy fat men in golf hats eating waffles dripping in Nutella. While this may not have been 100% accurate, there are a lot of waffles in Belgium and the people in Brussels are crazy. Again skipping over the boring details of confusion in the airport, … Continue reading SB2K12 Part 2: Brussels- Heeft u nu spreken engels?
The Marseillaise leg of my spring break trip began and ended with crepes. The usual (and unusual) hoops accompanied with getting to the airport, passing through security, and physically flying Ryanair were jumped through before Julie, Nora, and I landed in Marseille Provence airport, exhilarated for the relaxing days ahead on the French Rivera. We … Continue reading SB2K12 Part1: Marseille – Parlez-vous anglais?
