Tortilla espanola

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any cooking, so I figured why not have something new. This time, we decided to make a tortilla–and not the Mexican sort (although that would be interesting to try some time), but rather the Spanish sort. Instead of a floury disk of tastiness, we have potatoes and eggs (also of tastiness).

Skyfall

In the past few years, I’ve watched each of the previous Bond films at least twice, once in a semi-random order as they came up and then again in sequential order.

Cloud Atlas

I wanted to make sure that I caught Cloud Atlas while it was in theaters, so that meant that I pretty much had to go this week. Between the 23 local screens, only 1 is still showing it and that only for three showings per day. I give it until the end of the week, maybe next week at tops before it’s gone.

Argo

First, a disclaimer: this isn’t generally the sort of movie that I go for. I’m absolutely fascinated with stories like the one that this is based on, but I tend to avoid reading any more about them than summaries and short articles. For movies and novels, I tend towards fantasy and science fiction, avoiding things that are more realistic.

Hotel Transylvania

It’s been almost a month, so I figured I should go see another movie. Hotel Transylvania looked cute enough in the trailers, so why not.
