SPOILER ALERT

Posted in Mistress Business on February 1, 2010 by Julianne

WARNING to all visiting the Mistress’s Domain:

I feel it is my obligation to inform you that I don’t like writing reviews without spoilers.  I want to talk about what I thought of the movie/book/TV show, including what I thought of certain scenes and, often, the ending.  If you haven’t seen or read whatever I’m talking about and you don’t want to know, don’t read my review yet – wait until after you’ve viewed the film yourself, then come back and read/comment/snark along with me.   I’m not going to stop and say “OMGSPOILERZZ” every five seconds to remind you.  I just feel like I can’t adequately describe films if I’m censoring myself to not tell you that the dumb bitch ran up the stairs instead of calling 911 and thus died in a brutal, bloody way.  So…please, read on, but do so at your own risk.

Love,
The Mistress

Films to See Page

I have decided that even though I’ve probably seen more horror films than at least 90% of people I know, I’m not satisfied with my horror knowledge.  The majority of my film viewing has been of films that were made during my lifetime.  When I look at top 100 horror lists made by other aficionados of the genre, I feel woefully ignorant about classic horror films.  Thus, I am going to try (probably very slowly, of course…there are only so many hours in a day and it’s nearly impossible for me to resist the call of a new horror film, no matter how terrible it looks) to get myself more familiar with some of the films that seem to be considered the greats by the horror community.

Apologies

Posted in Mistress Business on January 18, 2010 by Julianne

I am sorry I have been a lax mistress as of late.  I must confess that I needed a vacation, and, as the holidays present as good an excuse as any to a) relax, b) eat large quantities of food, and c) pretend the normal world doesn’t actually exist, I did just that.  The unfortunate side of this is that I actually don’t have that many films backlogged to write about.  You would think I would, but a surprisingly large amount of my friends and family are not huge horror people.  While watching horror films is not necessarily a group activity, and I do often watch horror on my own, I find it much more enjoyable to watch horror films with another person.  So…I sort of slacked on my mistress-dom for Christmas.  However, with the New Year now well back in swing, my jet lag mostly gone, and work back on track, I’m ready to get back into reading, watching, writing and reviewing.  Two film reviews will be coming your way as soon as I can get my thoughts organized.  So, patience.  I’m back in business.
