A Quiet Place movie review

I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars just because the story line could add more umpf. But overall the movie was great. Well as long as you can handle silent movies. There’s hardly any noise whatsoever except when they make very little small talk. The main character that is on the TV show “The Office” played the role of the father amazingly and he is going to one that goes far as long as he doesn’t pick stupid roles like Brittany Murphy (RIP).

Unexpected love





Whoa… Alot has happened since and year and a half ago. I got my old high school love back and I couldn’t of been happier. Then I found out we were expecting a baby just after a month of dating. Me having a little human another life!

Then on April 22, 2018 and pushing for 1hr and 45 minutes our beautiful son Nicholas Michael came into the world at 4:35 in the morning on a rainy Sunday. He has been the most wonderful and scariest thing I have ever dealt with.

Nicholas has taught me how to have more patience, how to slow down and enjoy the little and big moments. Having a child is a wonderful experience but it will wake you up. It’s not easy and you will lose sleep, be tired. But the first time you hear a giggle in their sleep or laugh, you just smile. I still just look at him and I’m just so amazed that he’s here and how much he has changed my life for the better.

Nicholas is now 2 months and 22 days old or as doctors like to say 11 weeks. In such a small amount of time, he has taken over my life and I honestly don’t care. Hanging out with my friends and doing stuff before just don’t appeal to me anymore.

My handsome lil man learns new things everyday and is more and more awake and just wanting to look around to see what’s going on. I just couldn’t be happier or more proud.

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:

the-conjuring

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.

 

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.

Shirley Temple Everywhere!

Every since Shirley Temple died February 10, there has been so much media on her music, movies and even merchandise that she’s on. I will admit she had made a big difference throughout her life in many ways. Shirley was a U.S. Foreign Service Officer, Ambassador to Ghana in 1974, and even a Ambassador to Czechoslovakia from 1989-92′. I love her movie’s and watch them a lot. My favorites is ‘Heidi’ and ‘The Little Princess’. She was the best actress of ‘The Little Princess’ of the ones I’ve seen. At least she led a full life and did what she loved doing and even though she stopped because of a dramatic event in her life, she is still the greatest child actress ever.

If you wish to read her full biography here is the website:1925105_10152287283919369_382966981_n

Fairytale and Myth Assumption

Fairytales and myths have always have been in movies whether we know it or not. Everything comes from something. Books although seem to be better with making them come to life in my opinion. “Mirror Mirror” is an example. Now it’s a great movie but the director’s did not do a good job keeping the facts straight. For one thing, Snow White didn’t turn into a thief or whatever she is in the movie after she joins the dwarfs. For another thing, the names of the dwarfs are all wrong. I know this movie was supposed to be fun and not really all that factual, it’s just I get OCD about things like this. Recently I have been into reading books that go in detail of the stories in general. The Brothers Grimm had some very different views on the fairytales and how they are viewed. It’s a good thing kids only pay attention to the Disney versions otherwise no parent would ever get sleep.

Now I’m not saying that myths and fairytales are a bunch of bologna but some are remade or regenerated to seem sappier then they are. Now even though I am a female that does not mean I’m going to just assume all love or guys can be like that. Luckily for me I have a husband that has shown me what real love is and to give you a little advice: true love never ends.
