Distributed by Touchstone, The Hundred Foot Journey was released in theaters this weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve done this, but I had a lot of thoughts during this film, so I had to let you into my brain during the film. It’s not a typical review, but I think it gets the idea across.
Stream of consciousness and possible major spoilers ahead, so read at your own risk.
- Loving the score so far, fusion of French and Indian musical themes. Does that thought make me “musically inclined”?
- Wow. That’s a super depressing way to start a film.
- Okay, this first 15 minutes is incredibly slow, and if I have to hear “Papa” one more time, I’m going to explode. I may also explode on the person sitting behind me, rubbing their foot against my chair.
- Helen Mirren has arrived, and she is a female dog. Can’t not love her, though, which I sense will be a problem for me accepting this movie.

Disney Vacation Club (DVC) resorts are Disney’s timeshare properties. They’re basically very nice condos attached to Disney deluxe properties and while booking priority is given to DVC owners, non-owners can also enjoy these properties if they book far enough in advance. These one, two and three bedroom properties feature multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, a washer and dryer, and full kitchens. The downside, of course, is the price. But the upside is all the comforts of home.
Of course, not everyone thinks that having to cook on vacation is a great deal, but for those who want to cook or, for those that need to cook due to food allergies, having a kitchen can be a great bonus. So what’s available in these kitchens? Obviously, they’re not as well equipped as your kitchen at home. You’ll find an electric range with a ceramic cooktop, a microwave, full-size refrigerator, toaster, and dishwasher.Read More »Can You Really Cook in a DVC Kitchen?
