    If you want to eat healthier - juice is probably the worst thing you could possibly drink. Even if you make it yourself, fruits are generally very high sugar and can be higher calorie than you think. Additionally, it's not what you eat for breakfast that matters so much, but what you eat for DINNER. Big dinners are another sin for dieting because when you sleep, you metabolize calories at a much, much slower rate.

    Oatmeal + banana, eggs + whole wheat toast is the perfect breakfast if you're diet conscious. Basically, you want to be thinking about getting all the vitamins and minerals you need throughout the day, but your meals should focus on protein and dietary fiber before anything else. Secondly, you need to figure out your calorie consumption and how you plan to offset that. You want to have big breakfasts, big lunches, and very small dinners.

    It's hard work, but it pays off. I lost 50 pounds a few years ago and have kept it off for 2 years now so I'm talking from experience!


    On topic - this week is going to be my yearly descent into whatever I missed from last year and this year that wins Oscars! Last movie I saw was The Tale of Princess Kaguya, which got nominated for best animated film. It was great.

    Last film I saw in the theater, last month was Birdman, and it was incredible. Last two dvds I've watched were Lucy, and The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu.

    I thought Birdman was vastly overrated. The single shot concept was very cool, and Keaton and Norton were fantastic. But the story did little for me and the speculative ending came off as pretentious.

    I loved the conversation in the bar between Keaton and the critic. It was refreshing to see such honesty. I also liked the view from the gutter. It's how things really are when one looks beneath the glitter and bright lights and deeply inhales the cloying miasma of fame.

    Gone Girl - I had already read the book, and although I thought pretty much every single character was hateful, it was definitely a page-turner. Thought the movie was a nice adaptation.

    Big Hero 6 - Watched this with my 4-year-old nephew, who now has a huge crush on Honey Lemon. His previous loves have been mermaids and princesses, so I think a chem major superhero is an upgrade. :lol:

    The movie is not a bad one and certainly had some excellent moment. Still, I feel it's overrated for what it was, and felt that both Whiplash and The Imitation Game were better.

    As for the last movie I watched, Dark Skies. Awesome movie.

    The 100-Foot Journey. Loved it - one of those films that *almost* makes me want to cook.

    Whiplash - I have mixed feelings on this one. I can appreciate that the film was well done & that the acting was brilliant, but really didn’t care for the story. I have zero patience for instructors (or coaches or anyone really) who think they are helping young people reach their potential by being physically or verbally abusive.

    Having woken up at 3:30am today and not able to get back to sleep easily, I watched The Houses October Built on Netflix streaming.

    It's found footage horror (again), but I appreciated that the makers tried to give it a unique setting (i.e. around haunted houses at Halloween) - it was not just another group of teenagers or reality tv wannabes hanging out in an abandoned asylum for the 20th time. It has some genuinely creepy visuals and good moments.

    On the other hand, the story is sort of a mess, with some things unresolved and other things that just didn't make sense. They also cheat a little bit with the found footage format a few times. (Wow, unintentional alliteration!)

    I give it a mild recommendation if you tend to like found footage movies.

    Ken

    Horrible Bosses 2 - Had a few good laughs.
    Dumb and Dumber To - Also a few good laughs and a REALLY good laugh at the expense of Arizona State University. :p
    Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb - I'm not usually a huge Ben Stiller fan, but dang, I love these movies. A little bittersweet, as Robin Williams was in it...must be one of the last films he made.

    I left a casino to catch Ex Machina before it left the theaters. I feel like I lost more money in watching this half-assed flick than I ever did at the casinos.

    Anyone who's into anime should either avoid, or go for the prurient interests.

    Finally got around to watching Intersellar the other day. Mind blowingly awesome. It was great timing as I had just finished reading Michio Kaku's 'Physics of the Impossible'.

    Water for Elephants - Enjoyed it, although the book was better (as is usually the case).

    Into the Woods - Thought this one would be a slam-dunk. I love musicals and thought the concept was really clever (although I did not see the original play). However, I just could NOT get into this one. I thought the story was slow and plodding, and the music was crap.

    Metal: A Headbanger's Journey - enjoyed it, although personally would have liked less air time for death/black metal and more for progressive metal. (There's another project to add to my "when I win the lottery" list...)

    Loved the interviews with Ronnie James Dio and also the ones with Dee Snider about his testimony at those congressional hearings back in the 80s.
