Movies I Haven’t Actually Watched Yet // (Please Don’t Kill Me)

Movies and Such (1)

Hello all! So, I LOVE movies. Like, a LOT. But funny enough, I haven’t watched some pretty big name movies, even though I want to. I just don’t get around to it. XD So, just to get some reactions, I thought I’d list all of the movies that I haven’t watched. (Also, please don’t hurt me. I know it’s ridiculous that I haven’t watched some of these, but I’m trying okay?! XD )

Inception

I reeeeally want to watch this one, but nobody will watch it with me because it’s to…confusing. XD I think it looks awesome, with the dream invasion, and evil companies…Plus the score is EPIC. But I can’t convince anyone to watch it with me. -_-

 

It’s a Wonderful Life

This is, like, super sad that I haven’t watched this, but I’m allowing myself the excuse that it’s a Christmas movie, so it seems a bit odd to watch it any other time besides…Christmas.

Pride and Prejudice

The newer, 2005 version. With Matthew Macfayden. Yass. Why haven’t I watched this? I dunno. It’s kind of long, and you really need to be ready to watch these kinds of movies. *shrugs* I hear Mr. Darcy is wonderful.

Star Wars

*hoard clambers after Madeline, stomps on her angrily, then leaves, leaving her beaten and ashamed*

Okay, so…I really want to watch these movies, but I would need to MARATHON THEM PEOPLE. Otherwise with longer series like these, I just totally forget what’s happening, (granted I know the Star Wars story and all the characters pretty perfectly, but still.) So sue me. Or just make me watch the movies.

Back to the Future

Oldies but goodies. I wish I would’ve watched them on the day Marty went into the future, back in 2015. That would’ve been awesome.

Harry Potter

Okay, so I’m really iffy on these. I kinda want to read the books too, but I…I just don’t know. I think they’d be really good, but my family…they’re not into the whole HP thing. It’s tough dilemma. I don’t know. We’ll see. I do know that I’d read the books before I watch the movies. Because that just seems right, you know?

Spider-Man

WHICH ONES TO WATCH. I’d love to see the originals with Toby Maguire, but the new Amazing Spider-Man movies look good too. And, of course there’s Homecoming. (I’m totally going to see that one, no one can stop me.)

Pirates of the Caribbean

I just need to watch these. Jack Sparrow is weirdly entertaining and…Will Turner, guys.

Now You See Me

MAGICIANS. THAT ARE CON ARTISTS. I require this in my life. And they have a whole bunch of cool actor/esses in them, so…there’s that.

Star Trek

I love stories in space, what can I say? I need me some Spock. Vulcan’s are awesome. Live long and prosper.

The Hunger Games

When this first came out, I was super curious about it. But, then I heard that it was really dark and gory? Bloody? I don’t know, but I shied away, because I’m super squeamish about that kinda stuff. I might consider watching them now, though.

So there’s my list. Go ahead, attack me. I can take it. XD What are some popular movies that you haven’t seen? Please tell me I’m now alone…Let me know down below!

A Trip Down Memory Lane // A List of My Favorite Old TV Shows

OldTVShows

Hello all! I was recently looking up some of my favorite TV shows from when I was little, and I got extremely nostalgic. (Yeah, I’m only 16, but I can get nostalgic, okay?) So I thought it’d be fun to share some of my childhood with you all. Maybe you remember some of these shows too…

Image result for arthur showArthur

This was my all-time favorite show as a kid. I knew most of the episodes by heart and I’d always get excited when the little number would roll onto the screen, meaning it would be a new episode!!

Image result for clifford the big red dog showClifford the Big Red Dog

Another great show. I remember I would always get frustrated with Cleo and Mac, and I remember thinking that Birdwell Island being shaped as a bone was the coolest. thing. ever.

Image result for cyberchaseCyberchase

This show legit taught me math, not even kidding. XD And I remember loving the episode that was a huge Harry Potter rip-off (though I didn’t know that at the time XD ). It was one of those shows that I always watched everyday, without fail. That, and Arthur.

 

Image result for dragon talesDragon Tales

I loved this show too much. XD I like to think it inspired my love of dragons and fantasy, but you just really can’t know. I always wanted to be like Emmy and have Casey as my dragon to fly around on in Dragon Land. *sighs* Good times… XD

 

Image result for fetch with ruff ruffmanFetch! with Ruff Ruffman

This was a half-real, half-cartoon show that I would eagerly wait to come on. I loved it because it was real kids, who got to do really cool stuff. I always wanted to be on the show.

She was the superhero that I looked up to in my youth. (I…actually still kinda look up to her… XD ). Her sidekick, Ron Stoppable, was hilarious and I loved that he was the confused, scared one who had no idea what to do. I relate to him a lot… XD

Image result for maya and miguelMaya & Miguel

My upgrade from Dora the Explorer. XD No, but seriously, this was a great show! I always wanted to be friends with Maya. She just seemed so perky and friendly. I also love now that they included such unique characters. (Andy, anyone?)

We’re going waaaaay old school here. I remember this from when I was only a wee little one. Butter was always hilarious to me. And so was Flick Duck. “Cheese and quackers!”

Without fail, I always watched this at lunch time, sitting in the living room with my lunch. My favorite part was when the “Who Could it Be?” song played, and you had to guess which animal would appear at the end. 🙂

Image result for zoom tv showZoom

This was like the show you watched if you were cool. At least, in my opinion. XD As with most of the shows, it was always my dream to be on it, doing cool experiments and being in each of the segments. 😛

 

Well, that was my childhood in a nutshell. What about you? Do you remember any of these shows? Which ones did I miss? Let me know in the comments down below!

Doctor Strange // A Movie Review

Hey guys! So, in the hectic-ness of NaNo, I managed to head down to the theater with a friend and watch Doctor Strange.

AND IT WAS SO GOOD.

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe

High Lights:

  • The ACTION. It was never dull and all the fight scenes were really well done.
  • The HUMOR. For real though, it was hilarious, and really kept the mood light.
  • The special effects were AMAZING. It was really interesting to watch and I LOVED how the ‘magic’ was portrayed.
  • Also, there’s this adorable little cape that is just…adorable. ❤ He’s hilarious and alive and it’s great. 🙂
  • The plot was really thought out and I know some people will see the whole ‘time is relative’ thing as old hat, but I really liked it in this movie.
  • DOCTOR STRANGE. The entire reason of this movie. At first, he’s kinda of a mean guy, but as the story progresses, he’s actually really cool and funny. I LOVED how Benedict Cumberbatch portrayed him. And I also thought his American accent sounded very strange (ha, see what I did there?) He did it really well, it just felt weird, you know?
  • Wong is hilarious. That is all. 🙂

Low Lights:

  • I was a bit wary at first, since it really seemed to be pushing the sorcery and occult and such. And there is a good deal of that in the movie, but I felt it didn’t detract from the story.
  • A few parts were super, super intense. Like, really scary. But they helped push the story along, so I didn’t mind it too much.
  • As with all Marvel movies, there was a bit of swearing, but much less so than I’ve seen in other movies (at least I think so).

Conclusion:

If you haven’t already seen it, (and even if you have!) I highly recommend watching this movie. Plus, I have a feeling Doctor Strange is going to be a big part of the MCU (*cough cough* THE TWO CLIPS AT THE END *cough cough*), so that’s exciting. 😀

There you are, my little review. 🙂 I hope you got something out of it, and if you’ve already watched the movie, WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT. LIKE, A LOT. ❤

Book to Movie Wishlist

Hello bloggers!

So, I realized today that I’m actually out of characters to do the CC posts… *facepalm* Well, that’s not entirely true. There are more characters, but they’re in the second and third books, and I didn’t know if doing posts about them would be confusing or whatever… *shrugs*

So while that’s TBD, I thought I’d give you a short post of my book-to-movie adaptations wishlist. And just FYI:

this:

So, that being said, let’s get it on!

~

The Grimm Legacy

6760780

It’s not a very well-known book, but I would still love to see it on the big screen. The idea is that there’s a special library that lends things instead of books. But they’re not just any things. They’re magic things

Heartless

7069751

I just recently started reading this series and I’ve loved everything I’ve read so far. I have a feeling it would have a Narnia/Lord of the Rings feel if it was a movie. Also, there would be some scary CGI monsters…

The Candy Shop War

18775240

This would be such an interesting movie. So much is happening and things really get crazy toward the end. Plus the magic/candy aspect of it would be fun, visually. The characters are all really fun and intriguing too. It would be a twisty, turny, mysterious kind of movie…

.

Illusionarium

22840398

This would basically be the best movie ever. Period.  It’s got everything. Mystery, intrigue, monsters, action, romance…

The Goose Girl and/or Princess Academy

17906485990

Shannon Hale really has a way with mixing vivid imagery with action, so I think they would be really appealing, visual-wise. Plus the characters are amazingly written. All the action sequences would be really cool too, with the elemental control and such.

.

Cinder

11235712

Okay, you knew this one was coming… But seriously!! This needs to be a thing!! It would be EPIC.

~

Well, hopefully that was vaguely entertaining… 🙂 Let me know what books you would like to see become epic 17-hour spectacles! 😛

 

 

 

 

Captain America: Civil War // A Movie Review

So, I very recently saw Civil War so I thought I would write a short kind of review-type-thingy (actually just me rambling 😀 ) about it (with no spoilers) instead of a Character Conversation. 🙂

~~~~

And yes, I can’t choose a side. Unless Bucky is a side.

 

 

EEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was possibly the most stressful, but complete awesome Marvel movie I’ve yet to see. 😀

There wasn’t really a major plot per se, but I think the fact that the teams are divided and fighting against each other is reason enough to watch.

It was really hard for me, because I felt that Cap was fighting for the right reasons, but…I don’t know. Iron Man just has a special place in my heart. His was the first Marvel movie I ever watched.

But the teams. THE TEAMS. IT WAS SO GREAT.

.

It was SO STRESSFUL. Spiderman was basically yes, and Ant-man…YES. Vision is also yes. Hawkeye, yes. SO MUCH YES. The banter between the different heroes was hilarious.

Of course, Tony and Steve weren’t doing much of that. It felt like hey were too dead set on killing each other that they didn’t have time for…talking? I don’t know.

Also, BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!! YES-NESS!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT ALSO NO!!!!!!!!!!!! I am having some major feels about him…to. much. feeling. I just…HELP ME.

This face broke me. It's the face of pure agony and, yes, yes, it just fucking broke me.

THE ENDING THOUGH. *chokes and flails* I can’t actually fully process what just happened. Like…wait WHAT?!

So yeah. Stuff happened.

~~~~

Sweating bullets, Bucky feels, and PAIN. Which we all know means GO SEE IT. NOW. O_O

And if you’ve already seen it we can bawl and freak out together!!!

*fangirls extremely hard*

*faints, whispering unintelligibly about Bucky*

Doctor Strange Trailer!!!

So, I was going to check my email, and then I saw this little thingy in the popular searches sidebar thing. Doctor Strange Movie 2016. So I was like, Huh, it’s probably just the promotional posters that came out a while ago. So in all innocence, I clicked the link.

AND GUYS.

THERE’S A THING. AND IT’S GREAT.

OKAY. I CAN’T. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS. WHY AM I USING ALL CAPS?

No, but seriously. I’m so EXCITED!!! 😀 Benedict Cumberbatch + Marvel = YESNESS.

.

Okay, I think you get the point. 🙂

Are you guys excited?! 😀

War Room // A Movie Review

This movie…was so good!

Here’s the synopsis from IMDB:

Filled with heart, humor, and wit, WAR ROOM follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a couple who seemingly have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, their dream home. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, their marriage has become a war zone and their daughter is collateral damage. With guidance from Miss Clara, an older, wiser woman, Elizabeth discovers she can start fighting for her family instead of against them. As the power of prayer and Elizabeth’s newly energized faith transform her life, will Tony join the fight and become the man he knows he needs to be? Together, their real enemy doesn’t have a prayer.

I really enjoyed this movie!

I thought the actors (and actresses) were all AMAZINGLY well done.

The plot was very interesting and I found that the characters were really well brought out in that. I felt very close to them.

Also a plus, all the Christian music! ❤ I heard TobyMac, Building429, and Mandisa that I can remember.

This also really spoke to me in that we should all be prayer warriors. Pray for others. Never be afraid to talk to God. Because He’s always listening. And he knows what you’re going through. 🙂

One more thing you should probably know…YOU WILL CRY. A LOT.

Crying…lots of it.

But trust me! This is a great movie.

5/5 stars.

Descendants // A Movie Review

Hello!

I just watched Descendants, so I thought I’d give you a little review! 🙂

When I first saw this, I thought Oh great, another cheesy Disney channel movie…

It is pretty cheesy, but a good kind of cheesy. Like the kind that entertains you even though sometimes you’re cringing a bit. 😛

I thought the characters were well portrayed and the casting was good. Plus, WOW they are good dancers!

There was a lot of singing and I felt that it was unnecessary, the movie would’ve been perfectly fine without it.

But all in all, this is a fun watch. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

I rate it 4/5 stars.
