Happy Friday the 13th From The Shattered Lens


Happy Friday the 13th, y’all!

Usually, I am inevitably seem to end up spending Friday the 13th up at the Lake, sitting out on the deck of the lake house and suspiciously looking over at the nearby woods for movement.  This week, however, I’m spending Friday the 13th at home so I should be safe!

(For the record, the Lake is next week.)

Anyway, everyone knows that Tuesday the 13th is a far more dangerous day than Friday the 13th but, for whatever reason, Friday the 13th is what gets all the attention.  In fact, I’ve written several posts all about Friday the 13th.  Here they are, for your reading enjoyment:

Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter

Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday

Freddy vs Jason

Friday the 13th: The Pointless Remake

12 Thing You May Not Have Known About Friday the 13th

My review of Camp Crystal Lake Memories!

Anyway, have a good Friday the 13th!  I would tell you to stay out of the woods but …. you know what?  We, as a society, need to be willing to take more chances.  So, go into the woods.  Skinny dip in the lake.  Ignore the signs that say stay out.  Make love in a deserted cabin.  Smoke weed at the deserted summer camp.  Laugh at the camp fire stories about Jason.  Strip down to your underwear and then wander around in the rain as if that’s the most sensible thing that you’ve ever done.  Yes, Jason might get you.  But you also might have a lot of fun.  It’s worth the risk.

Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 5/2/22 — 5/8/22

Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 4/18/22 — 4/24/22


Another week, another struggle.

Well, actually, that’s me being a bit overdramatic.  This was not an easy week, mostly because I was feeling awful for most of it.  I wasn’t really depressed and I wasn’t really sick but I felt like I was on the verge of becoming both.  It was just a totally bleh week for me.  Watching Christiane F., one of the most downbeat films ever made, may have been a mistake under the circumstances.  Fortunately, I watched Solarbabies a few nights later and the sight of everyone rolling around the desert on roller skates really brightened my mood.  And then, on Saturday, I watched Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Jack Nicholson, and Peter Lorre in The Raven and that cheered me up even more.

As for the world of television, I finally got to watch Only Murders In The Buildings and I loved it.  And I also binged the first episodes of Atlanta’s new season and I’m still haunted by the premiere in particular.

Anyway, I’m feeling better just having typed out those few paragraphs.  In other words, I’ll be okay.

Lisa Marie’s Week in Review: 4/11/22 — 4/17/22


This week was all about family.  I spent the holidays with my sisters and I didn’t really watch any movies or …. do anything else for that matter.  But I guess I needed the rest.

I was a bit upset when I discovered that ABC was not showing The Ten Commandments on Saturday.  I may have even sent an angry tweet to my local ABC affiliate about it.  (Okay, I did send it and I was a little bit rude, which I feel bad about.)  Watching the first 30 minutes of The Ten Commandments before leaving for Easter Vigil and then the rest afterwards is a Bowman family tradition!  But this Saturday, a basketball game aired instead and I was not happy.

“BASKETBALL!?” I raged, “How dare they!?”

Anyway, I subsequently discovered that ABC had apparently aired The Ten Commandments last week and I just missed it.  I really didn’t have anyone to blame but myself and I feel kind of bad for yelling at ABC on twitter over it.  To be honest, The Ten Commandments is on Prime so I can watch it whenever I want but I guess I was upset because watching it on TV with commercials is a family tradition and I don’t like change in general.

Anyway, turns out my sister Megan had the movie on DVD so, even as I type this up, my sisters and I are watching Yul Brynner and Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments!

Here’s what else I watched this week:

Films I Watched:

  1. Barabbas (1961)

Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 4/4/22 — 4/10/22


The Slap discourse has gotten old and, at this point, most of the conversation surrounding it feels performative.  Will Smith has been banned from attending the Oscars for the next ten years.  Considering how few people watch the Oscars anymore, you can decide for yourself whether or not the punishment fits the crime.  At this point, I’m just hoping that another celebrity will do something stupid in public so that we can move on to another subject.

As for me, I didn’t too much this week but sometimes, I really do need to get my rest.  I’m looking forward to spending this upcoming week with my family and to also being a lot more active!  Yay!

Also, the Oscars are over but the Emmys are coming up.  I’ve got a lot on which I need to get caught up.

Lent is also almost over.  I gave up cursing Lent and if you read over what I’ve posted since March 1st, you’ll notice that I have yet to slip up.  Double yay!

Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 3/28/22 — 4/3/22


My heart goes out to Bruce Willis and his family.  Before the announcement was made about his health, a lot of people said a lot of pretty nasty things about Mr. Willis and his latest films.  Hopefully, this will serve as a reminder that one can be honest and, yes, even snarky about a movie without using it as an excuse to personally attack the people involved.  I’m looking at you, all you Razzie voters.

As for the Will Smith/Chris Rock discourse, it was interesting for like three days.

Between recovering from Oscar Sunday and dealing with the Texas heat, I was pretty lethargic this week.  Still, I did watch some films:
