I just finished watching the movie after YEARS of waiting for it, after reading the books many times, the first book is my favorite, so I wanted it to be truly special so I can watch it over and over again! And it delivered!! Such an amazing movie! They brought my imagination to life ten folds!! I'm hard fan-ing right now! I feel about ten years younger!
Brace yourself to be blown away! But prepare yourself: it's a Joe Wright movie, so it's so different and perfectly magical, it will change your previous knowledge of who Pan truly is.
If you are going to watch this movie you must know it's not a remake of Peter Pan, this is a story about who Peter Pan actually is, how he became "the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up" and how Hook became Captain Hook and who princess Tiger Lily is.
It's amazingly beautiful and the soundtrack is phenomenal! My husband and I absolutely loved it.
All I want by this point is part 2! I want Joe's version of how Wendy Darling enters the story.
The Time Traveler's Wife (2009)
Better Than the Book
You've guessed it! Rachel McAdams is one of my favorite actresses and I adore her movies.
To watch this movie, I read the book and it really does have great writing here and there but it wasn't my cup of tea, all I disliked in the book was omitted from the movie. Which really made me love this movie.
I don't believe in time traveling as in going-back-to-the-past OR future, but I enjoy the idea so much in fiction. This was the first time I thought of time traveling as nightmarish! It wasn't a joy to watch or experience in theory, it was really painful. But again, I loved Clare's studio, as an artist I love decor and creative spaces.
Love, Rosie (2014)
10 Years Ago
It was the year 2004, I just graduated high school and all I wanted was to travel, lay on the beach and read books.
A friend who used to work in a local bookstore insisted I should read "Where Rainbows End", so I got it only mine was "Love, Rosie" and I devoured it and laughed so SO hard and sometimes I cried even harder. The only aspect of the book that I hated (which was altered in the movie) that Rosie and Alex took over 50 years to be together which made me rate the book 4/5.
The movie was amazing, the feeling of the book was there though there was a scene that made me LOL so hard but wasn't included in the movie. All in all, great cast, great story and beautiful adaption. I adore Lily Collins! I can't wait to get my DVD copy.
The Vow (2012)
Redoing It All Over Again?
Watching this movie made me think about my own life, and if there's anything that I want to relive again, the answer was: no. I loved the movie, and the cast was more than perfect, the decor was phenomenal and the feeling of your blood boiling for Leo and breaking for him when he says: "My wife doesn't love me anymore." The beautiful ceremony in the art gallery (it's so me!) and the heartwarming vows between them. Paige's wedding dress and her studio.
This movie is beautiful but most importantly based on real events. The woman never regained her memories but I LOVED that she made all the same choices all over again, even if a bit altered. This movie is a 10 for me!
The Best of Me (2014)
Bringing Out the Best of Love
Nicholas Sparks is a very dramatic author. Most of his stories end in heartache if not all. He's not one of my favorite authors but I love the movies based on his books. I'm a sucker for old school romance.
This movie in particular is so close to my heart, it's the first movie my husband and I watched with our friends after our marriage. It's so romantic and so sad but a good wakeup call to those who always choose wrong in life especially in the matrimonial department.
After all it's not about money, wealth or other people. It's about the person you love and trust the most. The person that brings out the best of you.
Si, Si, No ,No
This movie is about three friends, a couple and their writer friend Chris who travel around the world to find themselves and the truth. When they reach Spain their adventure heats up when they meet Adella. Adella and Chris are instantly attracted to each other, she decides to give him a taste of Spain.
From food, beautiful places, music (the soundtrack is absolutely amazing!), and even the famous San Fermin (Pamplona Bull Run). But my favorite scene must be the scene when Adella played by Leonor Varela seduces Chris played by Joshua Jackson. Such a beautiful scene and the song is super hot.
