I’m not sure how I missed all the trailers for this movie, but luckily my boyfriend is far more observant than I am and made sure we went to see this one. Newly in theaters, Game Night (starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams) is a hilarious, fast-paced comedy that had the entire theater laughing out loud all the way through.
The story is centered around a group of competitive friends who regularly get together for game nights where they go head-to-head in a wide variety of games. But when Max’s (Bateman’s) hot-shot brother shows up and introduces the group to a new high stakes game, the night winds up taking several wild and crazy turns.
If you enjoy a good game night yourself from time to time, you’ll probably enjoy this as much as we did and be able to relate to certain parts, but even if you don’t, the actors all have such great chemistry that it makes for some really funny scenes that I think most people could still enjoy. I would definitely watch this one again. It was a lot of fun. 🙂
I’m feeling festive this year, so when I saw this cute little Christmas tag posted by The Happiest Pixel I decided to join in on the holiday fun! 🙂 Fun Fact: I used to be a total Grinch til Cupcakes and Machetes made it her personal mission to show me the joys of the holiday season. I was skeptical at first but have slowly come to enjoy Christmas and the chaos that comes with it. 😛
1.) What is your favorite Christmas film?
I actually have a few. 🙂 It’s no secret that I love The Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s definitely a holiday staple. I’ve also always enjoyed Will Vinton’s Claymation Christmas Celebration and the more recent Krampus film from 2015.
2.) Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
It’s always been fake, except for one year. That was the year my cat turned into the Hulk and took down an entire pine tree, bringing it and all it’s decorations crashing to the floor. Cats seriously up their dickhead game this time of year.
3.) What is your favorite Christmas song?
Carol of the Bells has been my favorite for a good while now. 🙂
4.) What is your favorite Christmas scent?
Hmmm . . . I really like cinnamon scented things, especially around Christmas. It reminds me of when my mom helped my brother and I make cinnamon ornaments for the tree when we were kids. For several years I was pretty obsessed with Bath & Bodyworks’ Vanilla Bean Noel scent, but I kind of burnt myself out on it.
5.) Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
It’s usually pretty laid back. I pretty much just enjoy the company of who I’m with and we open one present that night. I’ve always done that since I was a kid. I think a lot of people do it, too.
6.) Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
See the above question. 😉
7.) What tops your Christmas tree?
Well, this year the only tree I’ve decorated so far is the one my room at work decorated, and we have a big beautiful silver bow on top. We’ll see what the other two trees I have yet to help decorate will be topped with this go around.
8.) What is the best thing about Christmas for you?
Spending time with my loved ones and doing all the festive activities with them leading up to the actual holiday. Also, the book club I’m in always has a fun Christmas party to look forward to.
9.) What is your favorite festive food or treat?
As of this year, I’d have to say that damn tasty Christmas Kronut I was just raving about in my last blog post. Other faves include the chocolate candy cane doughnut from Tim Hortons, the Bigby Peppermint Mocha Latte . . . basically anything chocolate and peppermint, apparently.
10.) What is on top of your Christmas wish list this year?
Trump’s removal from office. A girl can dream, can’t she? 😛
If you’re up to doing this holiday tag, have at it, and please let me know because I’d love to read your answers! 🙂
Wow! I was NOT expecting to sign into WP today and see a notification that I’d hit over 200 followers! Omg, thank you guys so much!! ❤ ❤ ❤ I’m sick with a real bastard of a cold right now so this really put a smile on my stuffy-nosed face. 🙂
It has been so awesome getting to know you guys through our interactions here and by reading your blogs. I’ve gotten to chat with so many different kinds of people from all over the world since I’ve started this blog and it never ceases to amaze me how great of a blogging community we have here. 🙂
I’m a painfully shy person in the “real world”. An introvert through and through. Anxiety often keeps me from piping up in conversations at social events. I’m polite and friendly of course, but literally terrified to speak up most of the time. Blogging has been a great release, allowing me to express myself and my passions in life in a way I can be much more comfortable with. I had no idea when I started this blog that so many people would have any sort of interest in the things I have to babble on about, but it really does mean a lot to me. So, thanks, guys. You’re the best! ❤
