The Return of the Cinefille

::cue some awesome score composed by John Williams::

Okay so this isn’t that landmark of a moment, but a girl can dream… right?

After my month long seclusion (finally something I can share with my Paris!), from all things pertaining to this blog, I’ve decided to return to the blogging world.

It turns out that all I needed was about a month off and now I’m more ready than ever to get back into the swing of things.

I’ll share a bit more tomorrow about how I got my groove back (there are some funny stories involved).

And then this cinephile is going to be the cinephile she once was.

Okay, I better stop before I enter into some bg emotional speech with an imaginary symphonic orchestra accompying my every thought. It is 4:00 AM and I’m likely to start saying things like how monarails are alive (don’t ask… I did say this about an hour ago).

Have a lovely sleep wherever you are and you’ll definitely hear more from me sometime tomorrow.

Fall Movie Preview and Other News has a great, in-depth fall movie preview for anyone interested.

Everything you could possibly want is covered.

Check it out here.

I also linked to it on the sidebar, under Oscar Watch 2007.



this BIG news has nothing to with movies but it relates to the fashion industry and the media.

This is something that needed to be dealt with and I’m glad something is FINALLY being done about it.

Skinny models wearing thin in fashion shocker

MADRID (Reuters) – The world’s first ban on overly thin models at a top-level fashion show in Madrid has caused outrage among modeling agencies and raised the prospect of restrictions at other venues.

Madrid’s fashion week has turned away underweight models after protests that girls and young women were trying to copy their rail-thin looks and developing eating disorders.

Organizers say they want to project an image of beauty and health, rather than a waif-like, or heroin chic look.

But Cathy Gould, of New York’s Elite modeling agency, said the fashion industry was being used as a scapegoat for illnesses like anorexia and bulimia.

I think its outrageous, I understand they want to set this tone of healthy beautiful women, but what about discrimination against the model and what about the freedom of the designer,” said Gould, Elite’s North America director, adding that the move could harm careers of naturally “gazelle-like” models.

Yes, I LOVE watching America’s Next Top Model. But through that reality show, you can tell that the fashion industry needs to focus more on body issues, specifically anorexia and bulimia.

Big shots of the fashion industry might not want to accept it, but the modeling world is very mainstream now (because of shows such as Top Model and Project Runway). A whole generation of girls are being raised by the image of the stick-thin yet incredibly gorgeous model and that’s why this ban is significant.

I’ll be stepping of my soap box now….

I Have Internet Access!!

And I’m very excited and completely shocked!

I’ve been coming to Frost Valley in the Catskills for the past 17 years and this is the most connected to outside world I’ve ever been. Usually there’s no phones, no TV, no computers but the place (well, the main dining hall) has gone wireless. Very exciting. But don’t expect a ton of updates from me, unless something major happens.

Also, I’ve been updating my sidebar. I’ve added a whole slew of film festivals and a link to all of my reviews. That’s all for now.

Have a good week if I’m unable to use the computer again.
