Hello everyone!

I am so sorry that I have been away these past couple of weeks, life has been keeping me busy but I’m back now and here to stay. Now, let’s get on with this… I’m here to tell you my thoughts on Beauty & The Beast (2017) and just to let you guys know, since the movie just came out I will not be talking in detail about some of the changes that were made so you guys can enjoy in full if you haven’t watched it.

 movie_poster_beautyandthebeast_b1fe30dcI watched Beauty & The Beast this past weekend and I can honestly say that as a child I loved the 1991 animated version and I still do which made me very excited about this movie, especially after how amazing the live-action version of Cinderella was.

This live-action version of the 1991 movie is very, very similar to the animated movie though a few things were changed, removed or added and with these modifications many questions that were left unanswered by the 1991 version finally got their answered. They also included more elements from the original French story which I thought was really nice.  

The classics songs that we knew growing up at still there as well as a few additions but it all works great! My favorite musical number in the whole movie was Be Our Guest and it’s not hard to guess why. The whole time I was watching that scene I just felt like a child again watching something magical happening and in a way it was magical, at least to me. As a child I loved watching that scene and I was looking forward to watching it in this version and I was not disappointed as I’m sure you won’t be if you haven’t watched it.

Besides Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as The Beast/The Prince, my two favorite characters were Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts and Audra McDonald as Mme. De Garderobe, they were incredible! Well, everyone was but they just really stood out to me, but that doesn’t mean Ewan McGregor and Sir Ian McKellen were bad as Lumiere and Cogsworth, the complete opposite. They shine in their roles.

Something that I found really interesting was that we learned more about Belle’s mother in a very interesting way, which I won’t mention because of spoilers but the moment I heard Zoe Rainey was cast as Belle’s mother I was intrigued… and what the film showed us did not leave me disappointed.

So, I would love to know what your thoughts were on this film if you already watched and if you haven’t, let me know if you are going to and if your excited.

My Thoughts on Suicide Squad… 

Hello Everyone! 

I hope you all are having a wonderful day! Today’s post is going to be about my thoughts on Suicide Squad a movie that came out back in August and it’s all about bad guys working together to save the world. When I first heard about this movie, I was really excited for this movie because Harley Quinn was one of my favorite characters from the animated series, there was also a new Joker which I wasn’t sure about at first but it was good; I only wish there had been more of him. From the trailers it looked like he would a really important character but that wasn’t the case. 

The movie startered out good but it went in decline. The opening sequences for Deathshot and Harley Quinn were great! I only wish the rest of the movie had been just as great… the main conflict in the movie was a little stupid. The way Enchantress broke free and the whole situation with her brother was silly in my opinion and her plan to destroy humans was stupid and something that I’ve been in so many other movies… a beam to the sky? That’s not new. There’s also the fact that the movie moved to quickly, I’m barely had time to figure out what was going on when things suddenly changed… that I did not like. 

Let’s move on to the ending, Harley ticking Enchantress was funny but not satisfying. The movie really didn’t live up to the expectations that I had for it and that’s disappointing, I really wanted this movie to be good… but that wasn’t the case. 

Anyways, let me know what you guys thought of the movie. Good. Bad. Let me know in the comments down below.

Fifty Shades Darker 


Hello Everyone!

So yesterday the first trailer for Fifty Shades Darker was released and I honestly didn’t even know it was coming out… A friend actually told me about it and so I watched it… And now we are here. Talking about it. The trailer was not impressive, at least not to me but that may be because I simply don’t care for this movie. I didn’t really liked the first one and I’m obviously not even looking out for the next but I suppose that I you like the book series you must be exciting. 

The movie comes out next year on Valentine’s Days just like the first one and there are a couple of new characters as well as some darker storylines which is probably why it’s Fifty Shades Darker. Anyways, let me know what you guys think of this books/movies and if you’re looking forward to this movie.
