Survey and Review

7 Oct

‘To give myself a break from cooking, I’m doing this survey. In keeping with the food+film theme, I’m also reviewing the The Mist.

Note: I’ve decided to participate officially in vegan mofo, let’s see how long this lasts…

1. Favorite non-dairy milk?
soymilk. I’ve tried rice, almond, and hemp and they all fell short of its consistency mostly…

2. What are the top 3 dishes/recipes you are planning to cook?
Uh, well for fall: pumpkin bread, Halloween themed sugar cookies, cowboy cookies

3. Topping of choice for popcorn?
salt and cayenne pepper

4. Most disastrous recipe/meal failure?
Trying to make vegan brownies from a box.

7. Compost, trash, or garbage disposal?

Stuck in a Supermarket…

The Mist is the sort of movie you really want to be great and then it just falls flat. Seeming more like a made-for-tv movie than an actual cinema release, The Mist’s lackluster acting and sometimes failing special effects leave much to be desired. The good news is it delivers some great monsters and manages to be the best horror movie of 2007–if that is a compliment…
