Movies, Movies, Movies!

Monday, July 21, 2014

Hey guys! As you can probably tell I was a bit late in preparing this post. I realized that this month I was quite lazy at watching movies so I had to watch some recently so I could continue with the movies post series that I love very much. I hope that you like them as much as I like writing them and that it helps you out when you are looking for a movie to watch :)

The Fault in Our Stars: I read the book in a day and went to see the movie the day it came out. I was quite excited and I knew it wasn't going to be a let down. For everyone who loved the books or who just loves romances should see this movie. It was quite lovely and emotional of course. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort were absolutely adorable together and their acting was top notch. Some parts of the story were missing but you can't really fit a whole book into a two hour movie, you need to make cuts here and there. Also I really loved the way they filmed the texting scenes in the movie, it was a new approach that I think will probably catch on. I'm so glad to have taken this journey with Hazel and Gus!

Noah: I can say that Russell Crowe is an actor that I truly love to watch because he does have some great movies and he didn't dissapoint me with this movie either. He played Noah with great emotion. Also I was pretty suprised by Emma Watson who played Ila but other than these two I was quite disappointed (leaving Anthony Hopkins out of it of course, he was great as Methuselah). I was quite impressed with the effects and the directing was pretty amazing too. There was an evolution scene in the movie when the story of Creation was being told which I found quite interesting since it does contradict with belief but it was quite impressive how they filmed and edited that scene, it was visually stunning.

Blended: Adam Sandler makes the perfect past-time movies you can think of. I watched most of his movies and I find something to laugh in all of them. With Blended it was the same, I loved seeing Adam and Drew together. Even though I knew how the movie would end (because it always ends happily ever after and sometimes we really do need it to end that way, I mean life is pretty sucky already) it was still exciting and fun to watch. It was just a nice, cute, sweet little comedy that might just take your mind off things for a while.

Penelope: I did not think this movie would be that charming. It's a modern romantic tale about a girl named Penelope (played by Christina Ricci) who is cursed to have a face looking like a pig (actually just nose and ears). This curse can only be broken when she is loved by her own kind. I will not get into it but I really loved the moral of this movie. It's something that every person should never ever forget :) Anyways, I definitely recommend if you like magical stories and James McAvoy! 

In Your Eyes: Indie films, I really enjoy them. They usually have great cinematography, music and interesting stories. With this movie you get romance, drama, comedy etc. What else do you need? The story is about a guy and a girl who are somehow connected to each other and they can see through each others eyes. Yes they have their own problems and yes they will develop a close relationship (as if they weren't close already) and they will help each other out. It's great seeing these two characters played by Michael Stahl-David and Zoe Kazan develop a friendship and slowly fall in love. They do have to face obsticles though (Kazan's character is married and Stahl-David's character is an ex-con facing some trouble) but it wouldn't be as exciting without them.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: I pretty much enjoy all superhero movies and spiderman has always been a favorite. I wasn't really feeling the new installment though because I liked having Tobey Maguire as spiderman and I have so many favorite scenes from all 3 of the first franchise but this second movie changed me. I liked seeing Andrew Garfield as spiderman and Emma Stone as his leading lady. And again with every superhero movie you got your amazing effects and superb directing with the best music suited for every scene. There was a scene that I really did not see coming since I don't read the comics so I'm still pretty much in shock. That scene is now on my favorites.

  1. I really love hearing your movie reccomendations! I still need to watch tfios... and I thought that Noah, though nit perfect or whatever, was really interesting and I do like the way the scene you refered to played out! It was interesting to see how Noah had all these conflicts and how obviously not everything was peachy!
