Oh man, it actually looks GOOD!
When I first heard that Lifetime was producing a new TV movie based on the V.C. Andrews novel Flowers in the Attic, I have to say that I was not interested in the least. The novel was already EXPERTLY adapted into a film back in 1987 and that was enough for me. BUT, having seen the just-released extended trailer for Lifetime‘s version of Flowers, I think I may have been converted. This new version of the tale stars Ellen Burstyn as the evil grandmother and for her alone, I will watch. Heather Graham as the mom looks pretty decent … the kids, well, let’s just hope they can make their incestuous love seem believable. OMG. I can’t even believe that I’m excited for this new version of Flowers in the Attic! Click the embed above to watch the trailer and see what you think. Does this look like something you’d like to watch? What say you, fans of the V.C. Andrews novel and/or 1987 movie?
You HAVE to watch until Aviva's leg falls off
A new season of The Real Housewives of New York City will be upon us on March 11 and to get you excited for the show’s return, Bravo TV has released the first trailer for the upcoming 6th season of RHONY. This season will introduce a new housewife and will feature the demotion of a returning housewife … and apparently, Aviva‘s leg lying all by its lonesome on the ground. This first trailer is insane and I love it so much. Check out above and tell me you’re not going to tune in when RHONY returns in March.

Thus far Netflix has releases a first teaser trailer, a first full trailer and a second teaser trailer for the upcoming second season of its original series House of Cards. Today, right on cue, we get to see the just-released second full trailer for the show … and lord, does it look good. We know that former Senator turned Vice President Frank Underwood (played by Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire Underwood (played by Robin Wright) are dangerous folks to mess with … but everything about this second full length trailer looks sinister and dangerous. I am really anxious to see House of Cards season 2. I mean, I was excited before but this trailer? Damn. So good. The entirety of House of Cards season 2 returns on Netflix on February 14. Clear your schedule cuz once you start watching the new eps, you’re not gonna wanna stop.

2013 -- AKA The Year I Fell In Love With Julianne Moore!
So I have been wanting to post a list like this since last month, because y’all know how much I love a good independent film and I had so much fun doing the 2012 round-up of my favorite flicks from the year. However, this was a different kind of year for me as I spent most of it barefoot and pregnant, then barefoot and breastfeeding so I really did not get to see a ton of movies. It’s fine. Josev is here and he is magnificent, and I’m catching up on a lot of the big ones I missed right now, LOL. But I did get to see a handful of fantastic films and I have to, have to talk about them and make sure you guys experience the magic too. Click inside for nine of my favorite indie movies from 2013! Oh, and they’re all streaming on either Amazon Instant Video or Netflix, so there’s that to get excited about.

One More Rom-Com From These Two Lovable Weirdos
Earlier this year we learned that Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler were doing another romantic comedy together, and here it is! As a big fan of The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, I was psyched to learn about Blended. Now that the trailer is here, I have to say I’m a little less psyched. It looks kinda funny, but the premise of the movie is that they both end up vacationing in Africa with their separate families, but you have no idea where in Africa they are… LMAO. I just don’t like when movies (and real people) reference Africa like it’s a tiny city or even a country. I had to go to IMDB to see that they filmed the movie in South Africa, so maybe that’s where it’s set. Sigh. This is what happens when you’re raised by professors of African and African American history, LOL. Not even sure I’ll be able to enjoy this movie, but peep the video for more! Cultural misgivings aside, do you think you’ll be seeing Blended?
