Cinderella (2015)

Finally got to watch this one again since it was released onto Disney plus a couple days ago. It is one of the many Disney classics being made into live actions. Its counterparts being as of 2020: Mulan, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. They have had a couple reboots of other films that have… Continue reading Cinderella (2015)

Age of Adaline

Age of Adaline is a different sort of movie. I can imagine that it’s not in the main stream of popular films as the ending almost has a bitter sweet finish that leaves one feeling reminiscent for the characters’ possible and missed futures. The actors were good, demonstrating several levels of depth that was needed… Continue reading Age of Adaline

Warm Bodies

This off-the-wall different movie is one of my favorites. Certainly the plot of it is somewhat illogical, but when you are dealing with zombies, what’s really logical about any of it? I like this film because it’s one of the only ‘walking dead’ movies and tv shows that’s about hope. Most of the time, it’s… Continue reading Warm Bodies

Spellbound

  What a WOW movie! This movie has some of my favorite qualities that I love in film: a realistic romance, on-point humor, a ridiculously handsome lead, good acting and a fantasy quality. It maybe had a couple awkward dialogue moments, but isn’t that how it is in life, sometimes? We say things that are… Continue reading Spellbound

Nerve (2016)

  So, I’m not going to lie, I became a little obsessed with this movie. I don’t know if it just hit a particular nerve for me (no pun intended), but I really thought this movie was fantastic. I read one review where someone said the characters were stereotypical and flat, but I agree only… Continue reading Nerve (2016)

Alice: Through the Looking Glass

Alright, so this movie was highly anticipated for me. I loved the first Tim Burton film and I couldn’t wait to see the continuation. Despite the course reviews I had skimmed that claimed the movie was “without plot” and just a jumble of high-end graphics, I have to disagree thoroughly. The plot was clear and… Continue reading Alice: Through the Looking Glass

Jungle Book (1994)

This live-action rendition of the book is a marvel. It has wonderful characters and a story that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. Anyone who has seen the animated Disney story will see all the small nods towards it in this film, but it stays its own story. The CGI and green screens… Continue reading Jungle Book (1994)

Mockingjay Part Two

So, this film is very turbulent. The war has gotten serious and the lines on both sides have been crossed. I think this film was still a great ending to the saga, not only because they stayed true to the book, but because they did a great job on balancing everything. I know that the… Continue reading Mockingjay Part Two

Mockingjay Part One

I already know that a lot of people did not like part one at all. It was too boring and too slow… so many things like that. I have to whole-heartedly disagree though. If you’re looking for a series that’s all about the action and main stream entertainment then you are looking at the wrong… Continue reading Mockingjay Part One

Catching Fire

Catching Fire is by far my favorite out of the quartet of movies; it’s the only time when the girly part of me goes ga-ga over the relationship between Katniss and Peeta. As a fan of the books I really like how the director was able to recreate the story in such an exciting and… Continue reading Catching Fire
