I realise I made a mistake on the last monthly movies and it was supposed to be January + February, but oh well. Again this month I’ll be picking and choosing from the few movies I watched.
So I actually read all three books in this series - the first I quite liked, the second wasn’t as good, and I pretty much wanted to throw out the third. Despite that I was interested to see how it would be portrayed in its film, whether it was going to be just another teen dystopia like the Hunger Games (which I’m not saying it wasn’t), but I was surprised to find that it wasn’t that bad. The visuals was basically everything that I had imagined in the book which pleased me very much. The story was pretty well done, but I have a few notes, as usual haha. The acting was just, no. Especially the actor, whose name I can’t pronounce, who played the brother, Caleb. He just had no emotion it was kind of crazy. Shailene Woodley reminds me of JLaw with the whole, ‘one face’ type method. Also, the three guys who played Will, Peter and Al all looked the same. How could anyone possibly tell who was who? Whatever, I can deal with those issues because Divergent wasn’t bad.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Oh look, another Marvel. Someone needs to make a checklist for every Marvel movie to bring into the theatre, and on it has to be
Idk, this movie was pretty good, just your average Marvel but I reaallllyyy like Bucky Barnes, despite the horrible alliteration of his name. Though the movie is called ‘The Winter Soldier’ the main plot points didn’t actually revolve around the damn soldier because this was basically the set up for the next movie, which will in fact wholly be centred around Bucky/TWS. So you know, false advertising.
Welp that’s all I have to say, see ya next month!
Other movies I saw this month - Stoker, The Mortal Instruments, Requiem for a Dream (which messed me up btw) and Inside Llewyn Davis
Read it if you need a wakeup call. (tw depression)
You know what I’m sick of? You wallowing in self pity. You can pity yourself all you want, you can make other people pity you, but you know what? That’s not going to fix anything. You say your life sucks - what is making it suck? I’m sure the answer is something you can fix.
People don’t like you? Fix your attitude
You don’t like your body? Work towards become fitter
You have no motivation? Start somewhere
Sad all the time? Find something (a hobby or whatever) that makes you happy
Being sorry for yourself, and hating yourself for things that YOU CAN FIX is absolutely pointless and you’re just wasting time by sitting there and doing nothing about it. Have the courage to get up and change yourself for the better rather than waiting for someone else to make you. Be your own motivator, you don’t need anyone else.
And just for the record, wanting to die is not the answer. Go do something about it.
A step by step guide (Reddit /u/maxstolfe):
I’ve been in the ever circling vortex of self doubt, frustration, and loathing. It’s no bueno. I know. If you don’t mind lemme tell you a couple things. You can read em if you want, read em again later if you feel like it. But honestly man, if I spend all this time typing this out to you and you don’t let it be a little tinder for your fire, well, you’re just letting us both down. And you don’t HAVE to do that. You don’t HAVE to do anything. But you get to choose.
(Who am I? My name’s Ryan and I live in Canada. Just moved to a new city for a dream job that I got because of the rules below. I owe a lot of my success to people much cooler, kinder, more loving and greater than me. When I get the chance to maybe let a little bit of help out, it’s a way of thanking them. )
Rule numero uno - There are no more zero days. What’s a zero day? A zero day is when you don’t do a single fucking thing towards whatever dream or goal or want or whatever that you got going on. No more zeros. I’m not saying you gotta bust an essay out everyday, that’s not the point. The point I’m trying to make is that you have to make yourself, promise yourself, that the new SYSTEM you live in is a NON-ZERO system. Didnt’ do anything all fucking day and it’s 11:58 PM? Write one sentence. One pushup. Read one page of that chapter. One. Because one is non zero. You feel me? When you’re in the super vortex of being bummed your pattern of behaviour is keeping the vortex goin, that’s what you’re used to. Turning into productivity ultimate master of the universe doesn’t happen from the vortex. It happens from a massive string of CONSISTENT NON ZEROS. That’s rule number one. Do not forget.
La deuxieme regle - yeah i learnt french. its a canadian thing. please excuse the lack of accent graves, but lemme get into rule number 2. BE GRATEFUL TO THE 3 YOU’S. Uh what? 3 me’s? That sounds like mumbo jumbo bullshit. News flash, there are three you’s homeslice. There’s the past you, the present you, and the future you. If you wanna love someone and have someone love you back, you gotta learn to love yourself, and the 3 you’s are the key. Be GRATEFUL to the past you for the positive things you’ve done. And do favours for the future you like you would for your best bro. Feeling like shit today? Stop a second, think of a good decision you made yesterday. Salad and tuna instead of Big Mac? THANK YOU YOUNGER ME. Was yesterday a nonzero day because you wrote 200 words (hey, that’s all you could muster)? THANK YOU YOUNGER ME. Saved up some coin over time to buy that sweet thing you wanted? THANK YOU. Second part of the 3 me’s is you gotta do your future self a favour, just like you would for your best fucking friend (no best friend? you do now. You got 2. It’s future and past you). Tired as hell and can’t get off reddit/videogames/interwebs? fuck you present self, this one’s for future me, i’m gonna rock out p90x Ab Ripper X for 17 minutes. I’m doing this one for future me. Alarm clock goes off and bed is too comfy? fuck you present self, this one’s for my best friend, the future me. I’m up and going for a 5 km run (or 25 meter run, it’s gotta be non zero). MAKE SURE YOU THANK YOUR OLD SELF for rocking out at the end of every.single.thing. that makes your life better. The cycle of doing something for someone else (future you) and thanking someone for the good in your life (past you) is key to building gratitude and productivity. Do not doubt me. Over time you should spread the gratitude to others who help you on your path.
Rule number 3- don’t worry i’m gonna too long didnt’ read this bad boy at the bottom (get a pencil and piece of paper to write it down. seriously. you physically need to scratch marks on paper) FORGIVE YOURSELF. I mean it. Maybe you got all the know-how, money, ability, strength and talent to do whatever is you wanna do. But lets say you still didn’t do it. Now you’re giving yourself shit for not doing what you need to, to be who you want to. Heads up champion, being dissapointed in yourself causes you to be less productive. Tried your best to have a nonzero day yesterday and it failed? so what. I forgive you previous self. I forgive you. But today? Today is a nonzero masterpiece to the best of my ability for future self. This one’s for you future homes. Forgiveness man, use it. I forgive you. Say it out loud.
Last rule. Rule number 4, is the easiest and its three words. exercise and books. that’s it. Pretty standard advice but when you exercise daily you actually get smarter. when you exercise you get high from endorphins (thanks body). when you exercise you clear your mind. when you exercise you are doing your future self a huge favour. Exercise is a leg on a three legged stool. Feel me? As for books, almost every fucking thing we’ve all ever thought of, or felt, or gone through, or wanted, or wanted to know how to do, or whatever, has been figured out by someone else. Get some books max. Post to reddit about not caring about yourself? Good first step! (nonzero day, thanks younger me for typing it out) You know what else you could do? Read 7 habits of highly successful people. Read “emotional intelligence”. Read “From good to great”. Read “thinking fast and slow”. Read books that will help you understand. Read the bodyweight fitness reddit and incorporate it into your workouts. (how’s them pullups coming?) Reading is the fucking warp whistle from Super Mario 3. It gets you to the next level that much faster.
That’s about it man. There’s so much more when it comes to how to turn nonzero days into hugely nonzero days, but that’s not your mission right now. Your mission is nonzero and forgiveness and favours. You got 36 essays due in 24 minutes and its impossible to pull off? Your past self let you down big time, but hey… I forgive you. Do as much as you can in those 24 minutes and then move on.
I hope I helped a little bit max. I could write about this forever, but I promised myself I would go do a 15 minute run while listening to A. Skillz Beats Working Vol. 3. Gotta jet. One last piece of advice though. Regardless of whether or not reading this for the first time helps make your day better, if you wake up tomorrow, and you can’t remember the 4 rules I just laid out, please, please. Read this again.
Have an awesome fucking day ☺
Yay it’s my second tutorial how exciting ^0^
This one’s gonna be a somewhat dark makeup tutorial that I’ve been doing recently so yeah I’m just going to start.
At this point I’ve already put on face primer, foundation and concealer, and I bought a new product since my last tutorial (obviously, since the last one was almost a year ago). This is a Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in ‘Milk’ which works as a eye primer.
I used my new Naked 2 Palette for the eyeshadow, and now to best explain the way I applied it, the diagram should help. I didn’t use as many colours but the numbers correspond to the diagram of where I used them.
Shadows used: Bootycall, Tease, Busted & Blackout
And this is what it looks like! It’s a little difficult to take a good picture of it. But yeah, it’s a bit dark (but not overly so) and it has a kind of ‘gradient’ effect to it.
And then I got distracted (also added winged eyeliner which isn’t exactly visible here)
lipstick (in pref a darker shade, which I don’t currently have, therefore Grape will do)
Ruffle the hair a bit, act dramatic (that was literally a candid though whoops)
Side note, my hair’s getting pretty long! (woohoo ^0^)
Other side note - new shirt!
Finally, here are the products that I used:
Cool! Thanks for reading and idk I hope you liked it :’)
The other day was Isabelle’s birthday and just for fun, and to go against her will her mum, Matthew and myself planned a surprise party. Now, Isabelle doesn’t really like big fusses and requested a small and quiet dinner with JIM but loooooooollllll NOPE.
In the end, it all worked out really well which I’m super pleased about (we were worried for a second that only two people would be there) but it was a success!
This edition of Monthly Movies is a joint between February and March because of three reasons
I’ll be selecting the ones that stand out most to me and give my opinions/comments on them. Also, two posts today because Isabelle’s surprise birthday party was yesterday and I have pictures ^0^
Dallas Buyers Club
During awards season I try to attempt to watch the most nominated movies, and with 12 Years, this was one of them. It follows a man that’s been diagnosed with AIDS and has been told that he has 30 days to live. Refusing to believe this, he researches HIV and searches for a way to prolong his life. I found the story really interesting as it’s not a topic that is often discussed in movies. One of the main factors that really stood out to me was the characters, especially Jared Leto’s of the transexual, Rayon. Jared’s performance was like, amazing. I didn’t recognise him at first because his appearance and I’m not sure how you say it, but the way that he presented Rayon was drastically different. Rayon was my favourite character as she was pretty loveable and lightened the mood a little bit. Also, I have to hand it to Matthew McConaughey for losing so much weight for this role. It’s actually scary to see how spidery and skeletal he looks throughout the movie. Overall, it was really interesting to watch and something new and different that I’ve never seen before. Personally, I thought it was better than 12 Years A Slave but I doubt that it will win Best Picture.
The Wolf Of Wall Street
I have no words for this movie. It was so weird but in the best way possible. Excluding the very many explicit scenes in the film, it had me laughing the whole way through. Seriously, best movie ever.
The Lego Movie
Sooooo many people on the internet had raved about this movie being so good, and not just for kids, and it’s about Legos so I had to go check it out. Without a doubt, one of the best animations I’ve seen. The way that each Lego piece was created was amazing to watch (my favourite scenes were when things exploded into tinier pieces!) and my god, so many colours. It’s like a continuous exploding rainbow for your eyes. The jokes were pretty funny and it was entertaining to recognise all the famous celebrity voices throughout.
Not gonna lie, I liked this movie. The idea behind it is such a good one - once every year, anything is legal for 12 whole hours, even murder. I thought that they had tried to fit in too many plot twists towards the end in the attempt to keep the audience surprised and on their feet but I thought it was too confusing and all of it was packed into about 15 minutes. Other than that, I quite liked it and I’m pretty excited for the sequel which I hope focuses more on what happens on the streets rather than focused on one family.
No one can stop me from singing those songs every day of my life. Disney did quite well with this one. The style of animation was very similar to Tangled, my favourite Disney movie so I was very pleased while watching. The characters were interesting, the songs are the BEST and it was just all round a very good movie. One pet peeve though - can everything be fixed without the power of love please? I had enough of that in Harry Potter. That one fact and a few other minors is why Frozen is still second best to Tangled, but I still loved it ^-^
Alrighty, that’s all for now! See you in a month c:
Loewy’s a pretty famous restaurant and it has such an nice atmosphere. I recently went there for dinner with Shirley and our mums and I took some photos!
It may not be a secret anymore, but there’s a project myself and some people have been working on. It’s a student run magazine called The Coconut.
Our group’s been working, writing articles and organising ourselves for a few months now and it seems like it’s coming together really well. I’m actually so proud of our team for coming this far and being able to establish everything that we’ve done and that we have a lot of support.
Yeah, that’s all I really wanted to say and I’m super excited for the actual issue to come out!
This year’s was extremely stressful what with Year 10’s end of year exams and then mock exams not 4 months later. I’d like to think that I accomplished a lot this year but that wouldn’t really be true. Besides getting through Year 10 and moving onto Year 11 I basically ended up watching a ton of movies, and making the occasional video and blog post here and there. Despite my lack of productivity, this year’s been good. I was able to establish a small, but well rounded friendship group and we’ve become really close throughout this year. They’ve made this year fun and enjoyable so I want to thank them. I also want to thank anyone who’s been reading my blog because you make me happy. Even if there aren’t too many of you, you guys help me persevere and drive me to write more posts (even though I sometimes slack off a bit). Anyways, thank you for a great year!
I’ve updated my blog a lot in the past two days so scroll down for holiday pictures, a post about New Year’s and December’s monthly movies post.
It’s 2014! This NYE, we celebrated the old fashioned way - with fireworks and sparklers, and horses.
BEST photos of my mum I’ve ever seen
And now for the fun part - long exposure sparkler shots
Lighting lanterns and setting them free, just like in Tangled!
Our lanterns were less successful than those in Tangled and when they failed, we warmed our hands by the flame.. on the ground.
I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s [Eve] and that 2014 is great for you!
P.S. Sorry that my blog’s been so picture heavy recently, but then again, when isn’t it?
Oh gosh, we’ve reached the final Monthly Movies post for 2013! (and I’ve posted this in 2014, sorry I’m late to the party)
I think I was supposed to watch Christmas movies this month but there only seems to be one in the bunch. Anyways, let’s get on with it.
My sister recommended that I watch this. I actually like chick flicks and this one did not disappoint. It kind of reminded me of ‘Valentine’s Day’ with a cast that was full of famous celebrities. This movie just made me happy and put me in a Christmas-y mood, so yay!
Isabelle told me this movie was bad so I wasn’t expecting much, but now that I’ve seen it, I have to disagree. I thought the story was interesting (I always like kidnapping stories and how they end up finding the missing person) and it wasn’t too cliche. The movie was a little bit slow but it was extremely tense especially during the torture scene. So yeah, I recommend this one c:
The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug
The Hobbit movies so far haven’t really impressed me that much. Both of them have been pretty slow and I don’t feel the need for 3 movies. I understand that they’re trying to string it out and make as much money as possible, but it’s a waste of time and money. Although, what I did like about the movie was the landscape and sets. They’re always eye capturing and fun to look at. One thing that disappointed me in DoS was the use of a GoPro camera during the barrel scene? Like, what the hell? You’d think that a movie with a million dollar budget would be able to create a short water scene with CGI. Other than that, I quite liked it, but I wouldn’t go and watch it a second time.
I’ve seen The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises but not the original Batman Begins (for some reason idk). After watching it though, I’ve fallen in love with Batman again. I mean, after watching TDK, I had an almost obsession with Batman, and now it’s back. My love for Christian Bale is endless which made this movie for me. No complaints from me (for once)
I believe this is the third or fourth Scorsese movie that I’ve watched, after Goodfellas, which I loved. I have a thing for gangster movies. But yeah, Scorsese’s famous for being an amazing director so I’m trying to watch more of his movies. The Departed is on the IMDb’s Top 250 I think so it was next on my list. I really like this movie. I thought it was a bit long and started off a little bit slow, but the plot is really interesting. I believe that it’s been done before (2 undercover spies, each working for the other’s opposition). The performances by DiCaprio and Damon were really good, I loved their characters. I also have a thing for DiCaprio. So yeah, I thought it was a really good movie overall.
This movie was just about drugs really. I’ve seen the title float around some of Reddit’s ‘top movie’ threads and finally decided to check it out. I don’t understand why it’s such highly praised. The main character, a heroine addict attempts to become clean, but throughout the movie he continues to relapse and then try to clean himself up again. And this happens about 3 times. It really frustrated me. This movie’s a bit different from what I usually watch so it was a weird experience, and some of the scenes were so trippy and kind of freaking me out. I have mixed feelings about this movie, so no comment.
When Harry Met Sally
Here’s another chick flick that I’ve heard way too much about. It’s one of those ‘classics’ that everyone has to watch soooooo I was disappointed. When the movie ended, I was left thinking, “That’s it?”. I’m not sure if was just me, or my taste but I thought the end was kind of rushed? Like, the whole movie built up to him admitting that he loved her, but then it was just like - speech… the end. Although, I got to experience those famous scenes and I guess that’s all that I got out of watching it.
Oh look another gangster movie. And it’s from Quentin Tarantino - my two favourite things. If you can’t tell with the theme of the monthly movies these past couple of months, I’m going through ‘classics’ and ‘must-watch’ movies. Seeing as I’m in love with QT, it’s one of his more famous ones that I haven’t seen. The movie’s organised in chapters, as are most of his movies with really cool characters and a plot that begins in the midst of the ‘action’ (or lack of action in this case). There’s pretty much only one set for the entire movie but I appreciate how the story progressed throughout the movie. It’s not my favourite QT movie, but I still quite like it. Also not my favourite gangster movie, but I can deal.
Movie that I’ve never heard of, and yet has Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford and . I thought the idea for this movie was pretty well thought out and it’s original. The only thing though is that it takes a while to get started and progresses slowly. This movie got really bad reviews, and I can understand why (some cheesy dialogue here and there, boring) but I think the points that are made can be forgiven because of great acting performances and a good story. Pretty good movie.
And that concludes the last monthly movies post of 2013! Thanks for sticking around and I’ll be back with more movies at the end of January c:
Hiya, hope you had a wonderful Christmas! This year we had a quiet Christmas and just had dinner at a Spanish restaurant. We weren’t up to a big party or anything really special because these past few months have been pretty busy.
bad iPhone front camera quality, sorry!
For the week before Christmas, my parents and I were in Singapore (again) for visa reasons (again). We spent three days and two nights there, so we had a bit more time to do more stuff! The first day was spent shopping on Orchard Road, of course. We didn’t take the camera because it was a bit too heavy and we were just walking around familiar sites that we come back to often so I didn’t see any need for it. Although, the second day we went back to Resorts World Sentosa (as you may recall, we were there last year at Christmas). Instead of Universal Studios we ventured to the S.E.A Aquarium and Underwater world.
The S.E.A Aquarium holds the largest oceanarium in the world, and it is seriously amazing. There are so many types of fish and stingray. The other parts of the aquarium were amazing too, especially the jellyfish area as they were all lit up with neon lights. Before entering the aquarium, there’s also a Maritime museum which you can walk through which has many artefacts from the silk road. Here are the pictures from the S.E.A Aquarium:
walking around RWS
I liked the light reflections on the wall c:
At Underwater world, we went to see the dolphin and sea lion show which I only took videos of (and i’m currently editing those).
Other pictures around Singapore:
So, that’s all for now and I hope you all had a great Christmas!
Hello! It’s been a while
because I’m being so lazy. However, school is finally over for the year and Christmas is in 9 days. I’m literally so excited for Christmas - it’s seriously the best time of the year.
And you know what’s making it even better? Starbucks Christmas drinks. I have an unhealthy love for their hot Gingerbread Lattes it’s unbelievable.
The holidays should give me more time to watch some more movies, because last month was quite pitiful. There are only a couple that I’ll be reviewing today. Although, yesterday I sat through 4 movies in a row, so we’re off to a good start. (Well, not for my health.)
Other exciting things that happened this month, I finally got my birthday present! Despite being 2 months late, it was soo worth it. I asked my parents for a Naked Palette and got the Naked 2!
It’s seriously the best palette ever. All the colours go so well together and blend really nicely with each other.
I’m really proud of this photo because oh my gosh do you see how well it’s focused and gah I love it a lot.
Also, check out them names yo.
While we’re on the topic of makeup, and my birthday - I think I mentioned that Isabelle gave me a giant makeup box? Well, here it is:
So that’s that - thanks Isabelle!
Getting off the topic of makeup, this month my sister came to visit from Australia as it’s the end of her first year at uni! She only stayed for a short period of time because she had also signed up for summer school. During her visit we had to go to Singapore for a day due to visa renewal things.
Here are a few pictures from the day:
Hail thee Sephora
Funny story here actually. In Sephora, I bought a body wash from Soap and Glory because it smelt amazing.
Because we were only in Singapore for the day, we only brought a hand carry-on bag. Only when we arrived at the airport did we remember that you couldn’t bring liquids more than 100ml. It was a $16 bottle of soap so we had to buy 5 100ml bottles and squirt the soap into each bottle so that we could carry it on the plane.
It was painful and they didn’t even let me keep the bottle. Oh well, at least I have a nice smelling soap.
One more thing - I dyed my hair again! First, I died the whole thing a dark brown/purple (burgundy) colour. Then, I got pink highlights. They were originally supposed to be purple highlights, but they turned out pink and I’m completely okay with that. It’s been really hard to get a picture where they’re visible, but whilst I was taking pictures of the makeup I tried and it turned out pretty well!
what do you mean my bed is messy
shhhh just ignore it.
Thanks for sticking around! I hoped you enjoyed this post, and sorry that it’s been so long since I’ve been here. See you next time!
Monthly Movies is below c:
This month’s movies aren’t too eventful because mock exams were last month and they took up most of my time. Let’s start with the most overrated shall we?
Let me get one thing straight. I liked Catching Fire. It was a lot better than the first Hunger Games (because thank god shaky cam is gone). This time, there was a new director who got a lot more things right and stayed truthful to the book (which was still better than the movie of course, lol). On my other blog, I was made a short post after watching the movie and was asked what I didn’t like about it. Here it is:
I didn’t want to type it all out again, so there’s my opinion. Sorry for having one.
This was an intense movie, obviously because of the events that it was based on. I watched this with my parents and the whole time we were silent. It’s very emotionally heavy and we had to watch a comedy movie after it because it was a bit too much. Don Cheadle gave such a great performance in the movie, and I do recommend this movie.
Okay, so last month I said I wanted to watch this movie and I have to say, it was great. Modern effects are great aren’t they? The story remained true and Chloë Moretz did a good job looking as psycho as Carrie should’ve been. All I can say is, slow mo deaths guys. It was wonderful. Just go watch it.
I’ve just realised that the image that I got is in Spanish. Whoops. You get the deal. I love Jack Nicholson as Hannibal. I still prefer Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs over this Hannibal movie but it was still pretty good. I would recommend watching the two others rather than this one :3
American Psycho had such an interesting story. A perfect, high-class man with everything he could possibly need, buuuutttt he’s a psychopath. I really liked everything up to the ending, mostly because I just didn’t understand the ending. It was pretty abrupt and I didn’t get what just happened. If anyone can explain it to me, that’d be cool.
That’s all for this month, see you in another! (Sorry this was really late)
Welcome to November everyone! So now that October is over, it’s time for another monthly movies. This month only has a couple of movies. I think my peak of movie watching is during the summer when I have nothing to do or worry about procrastinating. Alrighty, let’s do it!
So, after hearing a lot of praise for this TV show I decided to attempt to watch it and was completely unimpressed with it after the first 3 episodes. I actually wanted to stop watching after the first episode, but I thought maybe it could redeem itself. I found the main character way too arrogant, so much so that it was cheesy and cringey. The main backstory wasn’t established enough so I just thought this random guy was able to shoot arrows and whoopdy doo right. So yeah, I really didn’t like this show.
And now onto something that I did like! In the spirit of Halloween, and the release of the new modern version that had just premiered, I watched the 1976 version of Carrie. The story was a bit strange at first and I really didn’t know what it was getting at, but it was so worth it because of the ending. No spoilers, but it’s so good. The movie isn’t too long (a lot shorter than I expected actually), and the effects aren’t amazing considering that it was made about 40 years ago. It’s worth watching ^-^
Now Gravity is such a big thing because of its special effects and all, and it really is. The story is pretty crappy to be honest, but just go for the eye entertainment because it really is just pretty. Yeah okay, Sandra Bullock kind of wailed half the time but you would too if you were stuck in space. Not much else to say really - it’s just pretty.
House of Cards
House of Cards was nominated for a lot of awards in the Emmys this year and it was one of the few shows I hadn’t seen yet, so I gave it a try. I’m quite neutral with this show. I’m not too into politics or anything, but it is an interesting drama show. It was a little bit boring for me so I stopped about halfway through its first and only season. The characters are interesting and I appreciate the storyline, although I just don’t think that it’s really my ‘thing’.
I went on a Hannibal movie marathon a few weeks ago, and Red Dragon replaced Silence of the Lambs as being my favourite Hannibal. I thought the story was great and the way that the main character, a detective (played by Edward Norton hdkghjega, Fight Club feels), found out things about the Dragon guy. But yeah, lots of people I liked in this movie - Edward Norton, Anthony Hopkins and Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort)! I think it’s in my top 20 movies or so now.
Crazy Stupid Love
Okay, I had never seen Crazy Stupid Love until now and there are gifs of it every where on tumblr and it’s like a staple chick flick movie that every one has to see. And I agree. It was really good and such a chill movie to watch when you’re bored or something. Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling though<3 Yeah it’s just an overall good movie. Any movie with Emma Stone is good to be honest.
Thor: The Dark World
I watched this in November but shush, I want to rave about it because oh my god I loved it. Loki was my favourite but there were so many good elements in this movie - the villain, Frigga and even Jane Foster wasn’t too useless in this one! So many good things to mention, but by then I would be spoiling everything. It is a really good superhero movie, which isn’t all that rare, but I think this was better than the first Thor - which is rare for sequels.
Cool! That’s October done, and it won’t be too long before Monthly Movies: November edition because these months seem to be passing by way too quickly.
