Flicks & Sips: Scorned, Straight Talk, Life of A King, & Friday13th, Part 7

It's still a bit cold outside, which makes the perfect weekend to stay in an watch movies and sip on wine. This go around their are two crazy killers, chess, and Dolly Parton. Cheers!

Scorned- Hulu Plus

This is the type of flick where even though you know it is bad, you have to keep watching to find out what happens. Sadie (AnnaLynne McCord) finds out that Kevin ( Billy Zane) is cheating on her with her best friend. Long story short, you know how cray cray a girl can get when she is cheated on. Sadie goes in and gets her revenge. Even though this movie is a hot mess, it's fun to watch it all unfold. McCord is good with her innocent face, yet a straight jacket might be a good idea.
Pair with: Apothic Red
Cue in the Apothic Red, a red blend from California with hints of oak and vanilla There is a slight bit of sweetness after a sip. Kind of like the sweet taste of revenge by Sadie.

Straight Talk- Showtime

Who doesn't love Dolly Parton? That bubbly personality of hers is always fun to watch. This movie is from the 90s when Parton was still acting.  She plays, Shirlee, a woman who says goodbye to small town living for the big light of Chicago. Along the way she finds herself, a big time radio show host, eat your heart out Frasier Crane. James Woods is Parton's love interest in the movie, could you ever see those two together? A cute and quirky film to watch when you stay in out of the cold.
Pair with: Mionetto Prosecco
The chosen wine for this movie is Mionetto Prosecco which is light, fun, and bubbly just like Shirlee. The bubbles will go good with the light hearted laughs. Dolly Parton + Prosecco= Purrfect.

Life of A King- Netflix

life of a king
After being a jail for 18 years, Eugene Brown (Cuba Gooding Jr.) gets out and wants a fresh start. Brown wants to repair his relationship with his children and starts the Big Chair Chess Club as a way to get the kids off of the streets. It's a very interesting story that also happens to be based on a true story. It's one of those movies that you might skip past, but do check it out. When Gooding Jr. gets a meaty role, he's really good, this happens to be one of those times.
Pair with: Beringer Merlot
The Beringer Merlot is a delicious complex wine of dark plum and cherry. It goes with the complexity of Eugene Brown doing his best to get his life together. We have all had mountains to climb along the way. Cheers!

Friday 13th, Part 7: The New Blood- Netflix

One would think that people would stop going into the woods where Jason Voorhees lives, well...nope some idiots are going back to Camp Crystal Lake. In this one, Jason gets out of this grave ( again) with the help of a telekinetic teen who has come back to the site where her dad drowned. Did she not get the memo on Jason? He has more lives than a cat. As usual Jason has an attitude problem only to kill anyone and anything that gets in his way. Maybe he just needs a hug.
Pair with: Hogue Table Red
There is an array of campy scenes between Jason and his victims..he likes to mix it up just like the Hogue Table Red. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. The aromas are cherry, strawberry, mint, clove spice, and other yummy goodness.
