2 Movies 1 Moment: It’s All About the Right Shoes

It’s that time of the week again! This one is really special and nostalgic for me. It’s time for 2 Movies 1 Moment

That Moment In.com

Most of us wear shoes. We don’t think too much about them maybe, but every once in while they make a difference. So too in film. Shoes have played a big part in many great movies from The Man With One Red Shoe to the unforgettable and oft-remade Cinderella. Here are two shoe moments that fit just right.


Melissa’s Pick: The Sandlot (1993)

Local baseball hero, Benny (Mike Vitar), reaches out to him and invites him to play baseball with some of his friends at the local baseball diamond, the Sandlot.

The Devil’s Advocate Review for Devil Week 2015 @ The IPC

The Devil’s Advocate Review for Devil Week 2015 @ The IPC

Eric over at The IPC is hosting the first ever Devil Week and I am lucky enough to take part. To check out all the other amazing posts for Devil Week, click here

I remember The Devil’s Advocate as being a one of a kind, powerhouse of a movie when I first watched it when I was young and impressionable. In hindsight, it probably isn’t the greatest movie ever made, and the idea certainly isn’t new, but it’s still pretty darn good.

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Healthy Banana Blueberry Muffins

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Healthy Banana Blueberry Muffins

Howdy all, and happy hump day! I have something up my sleeves that is going to make your midweek that much better. Anyone out there that loves baked goods as much as I do? There’s something so much more satisfying about eating a muffin for breakfast than eating fruit. As many of you know, I get a weekly organic fruit and veggie basket delivered to my house. Prior to doing this, I really didn’t eat that much fruit. I would have the odd banana or an apple here and there but I now have so much! All the time! And I just can’t keep up. So I decided to make a recipe that would use up some of the fruit I had laying around. The result = delicious!

2 Movies 1 Moment: On a Roller Coaster

2 Movies 1 Moment: On a Roller Coaster

It’s roller coaster time this week on 2 Movies 1 Moment. Hold on to your butts!

That Moment In.com

Roller coasters have long been part of movie history with their appearance in all kinds of genres. Their unique setting provides great story telling opportunities from comedies like National Lampoon’s Vacation to horror films like Final Destination 3 to thrillers like Fear to odd cameos like in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall. Here are two roller coaster moments he want to take you for a ride on.


Melissa’s Pick: Zombieland (2009)

The Summary: Our timid hero, Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and his new companion Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), who is in the “ass-kicking business,” have recently joined forces with sisters Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) to survive Zombieland, the post-apocalyptic future in which the dead rise and the living try not to be eaten by them… and to get Twinkies.

DIY Mondays: Dinning Room Set Piping and the Final Look

DIY Mondays: Dinning Room Set Piping and the Final Look

GUYS! The dinning room set is finally done! Can you believe it?! I can’t! I feel like I’ve been working on it FOREVER. That being said, I did take some pretty lengthy breaks in between some of the steps but still, I’ve been at this for a very long time. When I put the piping on the last chair it was such a moment of pride and exhilaration. Have you ever worked on a project that took you a really long time to complete? Then you know how I was feeling when the last touches were finally applied. A-freaking-mazing!

This Week: The Last Bullet

How many times have we seen a wild gunfight come down to just the hero and the bad guy? And when the showdown comes, you can count on a few good movie cliches to come with it, including the ever popular One Last Bullet. The trope is everywhere, and in different forms. It could be a missile as in Top Gun, Iron Eagle, and Independence Day or a homemade pipe bomb in Tremors. It doesn’t matter. If it’s the last one, it’s gonna be cool. Here are two ‘last bullets’ we’d like to fire your way.


Melissa’s Pick: Clue (1985)

The Summary: Based on the board game of the same name, Clue centers around six strangers who come together for a dinner party at the elusive millionaire, Mr. Boddy’s (Lee Ving) mansion. As the evening gets underway, Mr. Boddy reveals that he…

DIY Mondays: Wire Clothesline Picture Frame

It’s Monday again and I have a great project ready to share with you guys. Somehow though, I managed to delete all my “in progress” pictures except for one picture of the frame before I painted it. I swear I took the pictures but it’s looking like my memory is getting to the point where I should start to be concerned. Either way, it’s not a very difficult project and each and every one of you can do it easily in one afternoon. Without further ado, here you have it:

Friday Night Movie Recommendation: Pontypool

Friday Night Movie Recommendation: Pontypool

Happy Friday, everyone!  I decided to take it back to the basics today and recommend a good ‘ole fashion horror movie. This has been a great week for me and I want to top it off with a great movie recommendation. That being said, only half of this movie is really great, but that half… let me tell you. It’s amazing. Horror movie at it’s finest. Have you ever watched a movie and gotten chills because it was just that creepy? I did during this one. And that’s saying a lot considering I’ve seen a lot of horror movies and I’m fairly desensitized…. Ok, really desensitized. And this one got to me.
