The Conjuring 2 Review

It’s been along time since I started writing. Alot has had happened in my life the last few years but I’m back and ready to do more reviews and posting about whatever strikes.

Starting with The Conjuring 2:

Have you seen the movie The Conjuring 2? I recently got to watch it and to put it bluntly, it’s an epic movie. I would have to say that it has exceeded the 1st one. Now I won’t lie it does have a rocky beginning but as it goes it’s really worth the wait. This one is about a little girl who gets basically possessed by a demon or whatnot and as usual Ed and Lorraine Warren comes to the rescue. The movie takes place in North London and revolves around the Warren’s and Hodgson’s. I won’t give anything away but I will tell you this, watch very closely and won’t get lost or confused.

The movie does have some negatives; such as taking to long to get to the story itself, and in scenes they didn’t think things out like when they should have either expanded or shorted them. Actor wise the main little girl is okay actress but they should have had her do some acting classes for some of the scenes.

Furthermore, the movie is a 10. Now I must say that actor Patrick Wilson and actress Vera Farmiga make a wonderful couple on screen. They both play off their emotions as well as lines. Their chemistry is so perfect for the role in both movies that it amazes me. Very few can pull it off and the fact that they did again just shows how well they work together.

 

Semi-Colon Project

The Semi-Colon Project is a very moving and wonderful thing that got started the spring of 2013 by Amy Bleuel to honor her father that has committed suicide.

Project : means your story isn’t over yet. A semicolon is used when an author could’ve ended a sentence but chose not to. You are the author and the sentence is your life.”

If you would like to go to the website and read a more detailed description of this movement, here is the link:

I find that this is a very touching and moving movement and one that I strongly agree with. I even in the midst of things bought a Semicolon necklace from Amazon. It’s not flashy or anything but I like it because it shows support for all that it represents.

I myself have bipolar and manic depression for years. I do go through periods where I am severely depressed and sad. I just fake being happy until it’s over then I’m “fine”. I do go to counseling/therapy for help so I can talk to someone professional. It has helped me in may ways and I am very thankful for that. Not everyone does though.

For me I never thought of suicide because I always knew that there was another way out of any situation. Others may not think they have any alternative then suicide.

If you feel that death is the only way to solve things please please get help. There is ALWAYS a way out that is a better solution.

 

Change Can Be Good :)

So much can change if you let it. Whether it’s good or bad. Change is a part of life and if you’re stuck in the same ways you won’t experience new things.
I’ve learned over the past 5-6 years that change is inevitable. There is no way things will stay the same. For example, who you are, how you act, what your goals are ranging from small to big, and who you associate/talk with etc.
I know that I have and I am better for it. Making mistakes, learning new things are all part of it. My life has changed so much and I will never begin to describe it. Things change so much that sometimes you need to adapt to it instead of fight it.
To be honest I went from a major introverted person to a somewhat extrovert person. Learning to be outspoken was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Now that I have a stable job at Dollar General, it has helped me deal with people better. I won’t lie it’s been difficult but I’m proud of myself for doing it.
I hope this helps others on a positive note. Have a POSITIVE and GREAT DAY! word-cloud-change

Books into Movies? Good or Bad?

Now I know that not all books that were made into movies are bad, just the majority. But there have been many ones that are actually okay and done decent enough.
Like for starters, the outsiders, A little Princess (many versions), Heidi (many Versions also), and to Kill a Mockingbird. At least to me these seem okay and they follow the books.
I also like the Twilight Saga books/movies too but they are really screwed them up. They didn’t add things that would have made the movies better. I understand how they have to pick and choose what to use and what not to use. Why pick parts or lines that don’t matter?? Most of them are not significant to the story line or what’s actually happening.
Out of all the 5 movies; Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn part 1 and Breaking Dawn part 2, only the 3rd movie was close to the book. Stephenie Meyer should not have agreed to the producers messing with the screenplay of the book. I’m just surprised she didn’t sue or something…unless she helped destroy it. In that case she’s just stupid on so many levels.

The Genre of Horror

Horror movies or scary is a genre that has been around forever and it seems like. And to have an interest in that is normal. Some people believe that it’s against god to watch or be interested in this type of genre. Unbeknownst to god, this is a genre that is vastly getting more popular by the minute. Over the decades there have been many scary movies that are worth watching. Granted that I do not scare easy because I know that stuff is not real even though are some movies based on real events.

            I can understand why some people don’t like watching these types of movies because they can’t handle them. There are a lot of reasons why people don’t watch with genre but I most definitely do watch these types. I have always loved horror movies because they are so predictable for one thing. I mean come on, there is always some dumb chicks that are too stupid to run and instead scream and yell. Also, the story line practically never gets old even when they have sequels and more run offs.

            For those of you that actually do like/love watching scary, horrifying, creepy, eerie, spin-chilling movies I have included a list of my top 10 favorites.  

 Now my top 10 Favorites are:

  1. Nightmare on Elm Street Collection
  2. Friday the 13th Original movies
  3. Original Halloweens
  4. Day of the Dead
  5. Night of the Living Dead
  6. Ice Cream Man from 1995
  7. The Cabin in the Woods
  8. Scream 1-4
  9. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Collection
  10. Trick or Treat

 

Book Review 1

Kelley Armstrong’s book series ‘The Darkness Rising Trilogy’ which includes ‘The Gathering, The Calling, and The Rising’, is a great series if your into genetic mutation and people having powers and turning into animals and such. This series is part 2 of another series called “The Darkest Powers Trilogy” which include “The Summoning”, “The Awakening”, and “The Reckoning”. Both these series are pretty awesome. I recommend these books to anyone that’s interested in paranormal and mystery’s also. Armstrong really knows how to write great books and knows how to make you wanting more of the series. I hope that she writes more series like this because they really are pulling and phenomenal.
