Happy Birthday to Film Junkie!

Standard

One year ago today I created the Film Junkie blog. My very first film review I wrote was of a movie I discovered on Netflix called Grave Encounters. Here is the review: https://filmjunkie13.wordpress.com/2013/04/29/grave-encounters/

I would like to thank all of my followers on here; I love that you all seem to enjoy reading all of Film Junkie’s posts. And as long as you guys keep coming back, Film Junkie will be here!

To help celebrate, leave a comment of a film you would like me to review. Or if you don’t have a movie you want reviewed, just comment with the name of your favorite film.

Happy 1st Birthday to Film Junkie!

Beautiful War Music Video–Finally Released!

Standard

Today the Kings of Leon music video I was an extra in last month was released today. I was really excited to watch it and it did not disappoint. Also, I’m pretty excited that I actually showed up on camera! As I mentioned in my “The Day I Was An Extra” post, I was a rodeo spectator. I appear in the video towards the end. Look for me–I’m wearing sunglasses and a brown jacket and I’m on the left side of the screen.

So, here it is, the Beautiful War music video:

Were you or someone you know an extra that day? What was your favorite memory from the video shoot?

Comment on what you think of the video! Yay or nay?

The New Batman Is…

Standard

…Ben Affleck!

To be honest, I really can’t see him playing Batman. I mean, Christian Bale did such a great job as Batman that it makes it difficult to picture anybody else as Batman, but I guess we will all just have to wait and see.

How do you feel about this casting decision? If you disagree, who would you have wanted to see play Batman instead?

New York Trip

Standard

So, I made it back from my trip to New York on Friday and I had a blast there! It was definitely cool getting to see some of the places I’ve seen in movies and TV shows. Here are a few pics I took while there:

Fans of Seinfeld, I'm sure you recognize this restaurant right away. The outside of this restaurant was featured in numerous episodes of Seinfeld. It is a real restaurant; I had one of the best milkshakes in my life there. Eve thought the interior is not the same as it is in the show, it was still pretty cool going there.

If you're fan of the TV show Seinfeld, than you probably remember the Soup Nazi episode. The restaurant in the picture, Soup Man, was part of the inspiration for the Soup Nazi. I never ate there while in NYC, but I came across one of their many locations while in the Financial District. They even had a poster of George Costanza on the door!

I went to Katz Delicatessen which is known for the infamous "I'll have what she's having" scene from the movie When Harry Met Sally. They have this sign hanging above the table Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal sat at during that scene. If you're ever in New York, I suggest going there, they have really good sandwiches!

This is a still from Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. I'm standing in front of Radio City Music Hall where Macaulay Culkin was standing in the movie.

This is a still from the film Breakfast at Tiffany's starring Audrey Hepburn. I'm standing in front of the Tiffany & Co. store where Audrey Hepburn stood during the opening scene of the movie.
