Here they are (and in no particular order):

-Matinee (starring John Goodman)

-Office Space (Ron Livingston and Jennifer Aniston)

-Take the Money and Run (Woody Allen)

-Trains, Planes and Automobiles (John Candy and Steve Martin)

-Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson)

-The Full Monty (Robert Carlyle, Tom Wilkinson…)

-The Pink Panther Strikes Again (Peter Sellers)

-Voodoo Island (Boris Karloff)

-My Cousin Vinny (Joe Pesci)

-Nuns on the Run (Robbie Coltrane, Eric Idle…)

***

I’ve included links to the ones I’ve reviewed over at My Real Life Reviews. 

Most of these should still be available at Amazon.com or Ebay. 

As you’ll note, most of these are older movies. I don’t find too many new releases that I have any interest in viewing. But I’m certainly open to suggestions. 😉

If you have any movies to recommend, of any vintage that you’ve found LOL funny, from start to finish, please do share!!!

There’s no such thing as too much laughter, is there?

Have a wonderful week! 🙂

Trip Advisor and Their Policy Re: Censoring Reviews

I would appreciate your opinion re: this recent experience I had posting a review at Trip Advisor, which was subsequently removed from their site.

Thanks so much and Happy Mid-Week!

My Poetic Path

idHeadLogo_2013

As any of my regular readers already know, I’m an avid online reviewer, including at Amazon.com (I’m in the top 2000 reviewers there), at my 3 blogs and also at various commercial sites online.

I signed up at the TripAdvisor.casite a while ago and wrote a few reviews there since then.

My questions re: their censoring reviews came up recently when I noted that my review of The Preserved Seed Restaurant in Nelson, BCwhich had been posted for several months on the Trip Advisor site, had now been removed.

What I ALSO noted at the same time was that all other negative reviews in a similar vein to the review I had written about this restaurant (they have more than one location) had also been removed. 

I was not able to find the original review I wrote as they have deleted it off their site and…

A New Direction for My Real Life Reviews

amazon

I’m taking a new direction over at My Real Life Reviews (click to read the post).

I’m spending more and more time at Amazon.com recently, writing reviews. I’m hovering at 2000 in the Amazon reviewers ranks at this point…woo hooo and heading for the Top 1000 soon I hope. I really LOVE to write reviews, can you tell? 😉

So, I thought I’d combine some of my reviews at both sites, to make things easier for me and also to allow me to share more reviews (albeit shorter ones) over at My Real Life Reviews.

I think it’s a change for the better! Hope you do too.

Happy Reading and Weekend too! 🙂

If you buy/use any Heinz products, I hope you’ll stop by and read about a recent experience I had, over at: My Real Life Reviews.

Click to read: My Heinz Beans “Horror” Story.

And please DO share this post if you can on your FB, Twitter, blogs…

It’s an important warning/heads-up about Heinz, that I hope a lot of people find out about.

As I said in my post:

Buyer Beware!!!

Four Movies I Enjoyed During the Holidays :-)

I just posted this movie review “round-up” over at My Real Life Reviews for four movies I watched during the holidays.

They aren’t new movies, I don’t really care about that LOL (all borrowed from our local library) but I thoroughly enjoyed them all.

Did you see any good movies recently? Read any books you really liked? Do share if you did.

Happy Weekend! 🙂

Looking for a Weekend Book to Enjoy? :<)

falling star

I just posted a review for: Falling Star by Diana Dempsey, over at My Real Life Reviews.

This story is a real page-turner, or “page-tapper” 😉 if you’re reading via an ereader like I am, more and more these days.

I also just noted that this ebook is FREE today over at Amazon, so a great time to get a copy. I don’t know how long that offer will last.

Happy Weekend and Happy Reading! 🙂

Looking for “Munchie” Suggestions?

tyrells chips

Stop by My Real Life Reviews to read my recent review of:

Tyrrell’s Beetroot, Parsnip & Carrot Chips with Sea Salt.

These are definitely for vegetable-lovers only.

 But how can anyone not like veggies?? 😉

Ok, I guess it happens. LOL

But if you do  veggies and the crunch of satisfying chip-type snack, do stop by to read more.

Happy Munching! 😉
