Free Movie Friday: Cooking Shows

Do you love to cook? I have to admit, occasionally I get in the mood and think I’m Paula Dean worthy and cook up new menus, but most of the time, I’m much more of a sit on the couch and watch someone else do it when possible. That’s why cooking shows are so entertaining. Someone else gets to put in all the work and clean up all the mess. Plus, you get to watch someone else eat all those yummy dishes that aren’t on your New Year’s diets, which is almost the same as eating them yourself (except it’s really not but I keep telling myself I’m avoiding extra time on the treadmill).

If you’re into the food-for-thought theme this year and want to watch movies about cooking OVGuide has the top 10 free cooking movies all in one place- right here.

Disney or Pixar, Which is Better?

There’s a heated debate in the animated movie fan circles about which is better, Disney or Pixar?

Both have had good movies, and it’s truly hard to pick a side. Weigh in and see how your opinion stacks up with the current rankings.

TV Tuesday: Featured Show Jessica Jones

Netflix has a new series out called Jessica Jones based on Marvel Comic’s gritty character. Jessica Jones is a reluctant superhero who spends more time battling her own demons than saving lives. A victim of super villain Killgrave, a man who speaks his wishes and others obey. Helpless to resist Killgrave’s power, Jessica became a pawn for his murderous plots, committing crimes she wrestles to come to terms with now. Free from his influence, she starts her own private investigative agency  in between drinking binges.

Jessica Jones

Unable to live with her past, Jones is set on a  path of self-destruction, until Killgrave returns to exact revenge.

This is one of those series I binge-watched, and quite enjoyed. Jones’ character makes the show enthralling and reminds me of a female Batman, minus the mansion and fortune. Most of us can relate to Jones’ self-loathing to a degree, but she takes it to the extreme.

 

Jessica Jones

In the original comic book series, Jessica Jones was a member of the Avengers, first appearing in 2003.
