Pretty. Little. Liars. This is a show that many people have only heard about from obsessed teenage girls. I thought it was stupid, until I watched the first 10 minutes and got hooked in. Now I myself am one of those obsessed teenage girls who raves about it to all her friends. Oh the irony. Well I'm here to tell you that this show is not about stupid, petty girls who lie about trivial stuff. The plot is really gripping, and the subplots with each of the girls' love and home lives are heart breaking and heart touching. Let me give you the basics; Four high school friends (from left to right in the picture above) Emily, Hanna, Aria, & Spencer are trying to solve two mysteries. One of them is who murdered their ringleader and friend Alison last year, with kind of a "who dun it plot"; and the other is them trying to dodge a stalker/blackmailer anonymous person self-titled A who keeps interfering with the girls' lives. At some points they think the two people are connected, but I guess you'll have to watch to find out ;)
The slogan is Get Lost : Get Found, and that perfectly describes it. If you've read the book, then this movie won't disappoint you. Nearly everything is spot on, and I quite appreciated that. And if you haven't read the book (by John Green), then this film will have many laugh out loud surprises and tons of adventure! It's not as lovey-dovey as The Fault In Our Stars, but the romance is there. I'd say it's the teen rom-com of the summer. I especially loved the subplots and minor characters; they really brought the movie to life. If you're not familiar with this story, it's about a senior in high school, Q, and his unwavering love for the girl across the street, Margo. She's a mystery to him, and Q, along with his best friends Radar & Ben, Radar's girlfriend Angela, and Margo's best friend Lacey, go on adventures of self discovery and reminisce about their "lasts" of high school. I loved this movie from start to finish, and I highly recommend it! :)
I saw this movie last Sunday with my good friend, and we both loved it so much! It's the second film in the Divergent trilogy, and although some parts varied from the book, it was pretty close considering how hard it is to make it as close as possible. All the special effects were amazing, as well as the costumes and acting. I highly recommend it, and even though it's been in theaters for a while now, there's still time to go see it if you want! Although if you're not obsessed with Divergent, it would be fine to watch at home. :)
Hiiiiiiii peeps! I went to the movies the other day and saw this! I. Loved. This. So. Much. I'm a self-proclaimed Disney fanatic, so seeing this classic film come to life was beautiful. First off, the costumes were 100% the most beautiful costumes I think I've ever seen in a movie. Her ball dress was amazing. My friend & I were talking about how they must have made it so pretty, and we think they took layer upon layer of tulle and made the skirt of the dress. It flowed beautifully when she danced with the prince, and had so much more movement compared to everyone else's at the ball. We assume they simply used hoop skirts to create their poofiness. The storyline was basically the same, except they really went into a lot more detail with Ella's past with both her parents. One thing I'd like to point out was that they made Ella very much of a pushover. It was a fine line of kindness and being taken advantage of with her relationship between her and her stepmother and stepsisters. In the end, she learned to stand up for herself though, which I liked. Also, they showed a lot more how the prince was feeling throughout all of it. All the actors really portrayed their parts really well, and I recommend you see this if you're a die hard fan of Cinderella and the Disney princesses in general.
*********** THIS IS MY FAVORITE SHOW. READ BELOW TO SEE WHY. *********************
Once Upon A Time, there was a girl named Emma who stumbled upon a secretly magic town titled Storybrooke. That sounds like quite the bouncy happy go lucky show in which no teen would ever watch. But I haven't told you everything. Once Upon A Time (Or OUAT as we oncers abbreviate) is not your ordinary drama, nor mystery or fairytale blend. Let me (if you're still reading right now) enhance the partially interesting story of my relationship with the show, because it literally means so much to me. From the time I started watching it about 7 months ago, it has taken up a big portion of my attention. I happened to start watching it smack dab in the middle of the winter hiatus, the break between season 3a and 3b. The first few episodes I really enjoyed, but then around the 4th one, I stopped watching it for about a week and a half. I'm not sure why, but I do that sometimes with things. It's almost like I have an awareness of knowing this "thing" will be some sort of obsession, in which one should be cautious, because I seem to have the issue of tearing through a book or show much to quickly in a way that really can't be controlled, but leaving behind a hole in my heart once finished. Any who, once I finally decided to continue the show, I did exactly that; rip through it. I even managed to convince two of my friends to watch it too, who now are both equally obsessed. Season 3 ended, and we all patiently waited for season 4 in the fall. It came, I had heart attacks every Sunday night when it aired. Now we're about to go into the winter hiatus yet again, and I'm still totally absorbed by this show. I think that says a lot. I recommend it to anyone, no matter what you enjoy watching, because it's such a diverse show. Hope you enjoy!
Talk to you soon,
By now you've all probably all seen this movie, but for those who haven't, I'll gladly clue you in: IT WAS SOOOO AMAZING. You know those times when the caps lock button isn't a powerful enough lever for your emotions? Well, that was what my friend and I were like during and after seeing it. In all honesty I had hopes for the movie because I had read the book and Shailene Woodley was my favorite actress from when I was 9. She starred in one of my favorite American Girl movies of all time: Felicity An American Girl. So when I heard she was gonna be in TWO movies i was dying to see, Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars, I basically fReaKed oUT. The feeling was like calling first dibs on the future: utterly nonsensically proud.
So this movie is about Tris Prior, a 16 year old girl living in a dystopian world. Sound familiar? Well, i can most certainly tell you that it is 100% different and unique from the HUnger Games. Different style, different author, different personalities, and no Katniss braids. Although, the attractiveness of the male leads are both quite strong. Basically, Tris has to choose which community and lifestyle to become apart of, called a faction. Abnegation-Selflessness : Amity-Peace : Erudite-Smarts : Dauntless-Bravery : Candor-Honesty
It all spirals from there.
I saw this movie with my BFF at the end of June, and I never did a review on it. I know, it's a really late post, but I figured, why not? I'm sure some people didn't see it yet, and it's a funny movie.
Monster's University's story plot is basically how Mike and Sully met before Monster's Inc. They both go to the same college (MU) and a lot of things go down there. I don't want to give anything away, but let's just say they did NOT like each other when they first met. Monster's University is a movie which you don't want to miss, and is pretty funny and with a witty storyline. I'd definitely recommend this movie, no matter how old you are, because it's really interesting to see how it all began, and it's funny!
Words cannot begin to describe how inspiring this movie was to me. It has so many great qualities that enhanced it, and they made the movie even more enjoyable to witness. I didn't say watch because it honestly didn't feel like I was just peeking into their world. It was that good of a movie. The Help was hilarious, touching, informative, and taught a great lesson. I give this movie 4 1/2 stars. Not 5 only because at a few times I didn't understand what was happening, but maybe that's because I'm only 13. Anyway, I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a dose of laughter, a dash of romance, two cups of courage, a large helping of lessons learned, and one tablespoon of doing the right thing. I hope y'all enjoy The Help like I did!
In my school, fads with movie/book series come and go. First it was Harry Potter, then Twilight, and most recently Beautiful Creatures. Now that last one is the one Ii'm gonna talk about. This movie is really one you can't miss, especially if you read the book. The movie has a lot of different plot twists, so you're always on your toes. But it's a whole lot different from the book, so not to get confused, I suggest reading the book first. It'll help you understand the plot more, which is what i'll explain to you now.
Ethan Wate lives in a small town in the South where everybody knows everybody and their business. Nothing ever changes, and there are no secrets. But the day Lena Duchannes moves to town, everything changes. It's quite a series that I love, so even if you ever get to a boring part in any of the books, power through. I promise that it gets much more interesting. Hope you enjoy!
If you are looking for shows on TV from the seventies, this is one of them! My mom told me that everybody used to watch it, and that it had about 10 seasons. The concept of the show is one single middle aged man with three sons who marries a single middle aged woman with three daughters! The whole series is about what they do to come together as a family, as the Brady Bunch. It's a bit corny, but you'll love it :)
(And don't forget Alice their housekeeper! She's a main character too.)
