Fired Up! (2009)



Funnier than it has any right to be, Fired Up! is one of my guilty pleasures.   The film starts off in the streets of Pasadena....

Also in Pasadena is a the trainstop, used in many films and the same street corner used in Halloween....

Although they shot on many college campuses, they used Occidental College quite a bit....

I was fortunate enough to meet Nicholas D'Agosto, an Omaha native, who was in town for Dirty Girl....


And a very funny actor, Adhir Kalyan....

The Kids Are All Right (2010)



Great film and one that I believe Annette Benning should've taken an Oscar home for.... the movie is set in LA and used practical locations for filming.    First up is Annette and Julianne Moore's house found just off Venice Boulevard in Venice....

Mark Ruffalo's house is in the Echo Park area waaaaay atop a steep hill!

Their daughter goes to college, which is Occidental College in Eagle Rock, home of many movie locations including Kicking & Screaming.

My sister and I got to see Mark Ruffalo at Sundance and Annette Benning at the Oscars....
