The Christmas Spirit

Standard

So hey guys!!! It’s Christmas Eve and I really don’t feel it this time of the year. I’m not sure if it is because of the calamities but I really am not feeling Christmas-y this year. Still, I am holding on to my one and only Christmas Tradition…. MOVIE MARATHON!!!

Here are the movies I’ve watched today!!!

THE FIRST TIME

Meet Dave (Dylan O’Brien), a senior, who is in love with Jane (Victoria Justice). Suddenly, he met this junior girl, Aubrey, at a party. Soon enough they become close and help each other in their “FIST TIME”

THE INTERNSHIP

So, yes, I’ve been watching Dylan O’Brien movies. He’s just too cute for his own good. A movie about two bros who are like in mid-life crisis and were laid-off. Now they find their selves interning for Google. Good movie cause they show how Google has their own version of QUIDDITCH!!!

21 Jump Street

It’s effing CHANNING TATUM!!! Okay, so I watched it again cause there’s gonna be 22 Jump Street by next year.

THE SPECTACULAR NOW

I’ve been dying to see this movie for like two months now. I’ve read the book and cried a little. This is going to be the last movie that Shailene Woodley would have without me thinking she has cancer or she’s going to have to jump off buildings and shooting people.

*TFIOS and Divergent Fans out there get this.

LOVE ACTUALLY

I am of course going to place a Christmas Movie sooner or later. Bloody Hell, you have no idea how tempted I was to write that on my Christmas card with the gift… But of course I don’t have the bloody guts to even do that. But i wrote it down but of course I threw it down the bin.

last but not the least….

MEAN GIRLS

SUPER THROWBACK MOVIE!!! You know that Mean Girls still do have an impact until now. For example you see those “cool” girls in your school wearing a “You Can’t Sit With Us” t-shirt. Then I think, “You guys are like the Mean Girls 2… Nobody gave a shinizit about it.”

I really do hope you guys are enjoying your Christmas more than I do.

Not so ‘BEAUTIFUL’ movie

Standard

So when I first saw Beautiful Creatures at the book stands I thought, “Here’s another boring mythical love story.”

Well, in book stands you can see Angel, Vampire, Werewolf, even Zombie (but I like Warm Bodies… A LOT) books and the thought of reading another book about them bores me that’s why I have resolved to boring unreal but most likely to happen in real life for their are no sparkly fairies and six-packed wolf books. (Such as Just One Day, The Boyfriend Thief, and This is What Happy Looks Like)

I watched the movie and heck I didn’t understand anything. Just the part that the guy had amnesia then shouted the girl’s name at the end. Since the movie made me interested in the world of Casters but I still effin hate the movie,http://64.19.142.11/data.whicdn.com/images/59033902/large.gif I decided to finally give up with my pride and read the book.

It’s just like what they did to the Percy Jackson movies… changed the whole plot!!! I don’t even know why the producers bother placing based on the novel of (insert author here) if they won’t even follow the plot.

Things that differ from the movie and the book. Warning! May contain spoilers.

  1. Ethan doesn’t have midnight runs and specially not to his mom’s grave.
  2. Ethan got the locket at Greenbrier when he was talking to Lena.
  3. Lena did not erase the memories of Ethan.
  4. Macon and Amma did try to separate Ethan and Lena but they learned it’s best not to since Ethan was able to save Lena from being dark/dying during Halloween.
  5. Amma is not the Keeper of the Caster Library or even the Mortal Library. It’s Marian!!!  Well, she was cut-off from the movie.
  6. The whole death scene of Macon and birthday scene of Lena is so different.
  7. Have you seen a dog named Boo Ridley?
  8. Ethan died and Lena used the Book of Moons to bring him back.
  9. There’s this song that Ethan hears all the time ‘Sixteen Moons’ and it like predicts the future.
  10. Last but not the least, LINK SHOULD BE A LOT HOTTER!

Guys, the Beutiful Creatures series written by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl is a great book and you guys should probably give the Caster World a chance. 🙂

Movie Review: Iron Man 3

Standard

Finally, I was able to watch Iron Man 3 yesterday. My dad and I went early to the theaters to be able to watch and avoid the long line.

The story line evolved on Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) who can’t imagine life without Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Palthrow). Sweet, right? The he has anxiety issues ever since what happened in New York (when he was fighting the Alien with the Avengers and he went inside the black hole then he tried to call Pepper but she was too busy watching the news). The movie’s theme was how unconsciously we make demons.

Demons in a sense that when we unconsciously make a person an evil one because we did something that they could never forget. That’s how the movie story really revolves in. Like, how Mandarin became evil.

The movie showed that Tony Stark could be vulnerable. Still, I’m mad at Mandarin for shooting missiles at Tony’s house.

  • The fight scenes of course never failed me.
  • The movie twists– 1 so unpredictable the other I saw it coming.
  • Humor-  I laughed more at  Avengers but the Dora the Explorer watch made me laugh so hard.
  • Romance- Tony gave Pepper a big bunny

Okay, I’m being too much of a spoiler but I promise you won’t regret watching it. 🙂
