EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING (2017)

TAGLINE: RISK EVERYTHING… FOR LOVE.

How adorable is this movie?! Tremendously, that’s how much!

Naturally I didn’t read the book beforehand or really watch many of the trailers and things. I really need to step my literature game up… someday. Not today, but, someday.

I went into this one thinking it was going to be a Nicholas Sparks kind of deal where someone dies tragically and tears are shed well into the time of the credits rolling, but, alas that was not the case! This one left me with the feeling that if a girl basically living in a bubble aka glass house can find love then maybe there’s hope for all of us out there.

There were little gems of comedy combined with the cutest of cute romance. The soundtrack played into everything perfectly, I just love love loved it overall, and the super mega twist was one that even I couldn’t predict. That’s something that hasn’t happened in a million years.

prequels, sequels, and remakes… oh my!

First of all, I completely realize that I have been slacking when it comes to these updates. I could come up with a million excuses but we all know that excuses are like belly buttons aka everybody’s got some kind of version of one; ergo, I won’t bother. It’s not like I haven’t watched any cinematic adventures during the time of my impromptu hiatus, because I absolutely have. A day without watching a movie is like a day without eating breakfast… it’s possible, but, it’s the most important meal of the day!

Second of all, this post isn’t technically going to be a post about a specific movie. Rather, a post about a subject that I feel very strongly about when it comes to movies in general. Prequels, sequels, and remakes or reboots… whatever word you want to use for them.

THEY ARE EVERYWHERE! Why are they literally EVERYWHERE?! It’s insane!

I have no problem accepting the fact that every generation is going to have their take on certain classics such as the superhero genre. We’ve had Adam West, Michael Keaton (aka the best Batman of all,) George Clooney, the tragic Val Kilmer rendition, Christian Bale, and now Ben Affleck… totally understandable to keep Batman going. The same can be said for Superman, Spiderman, etc. There have been awesome versions and there have been versions that I think we can all agree should never be spoken of again (cough Val Kilmer cough).

HOW TO BE SINGLE (2016)

TAGLINE: WELCOME TO THE PARTY

A fitting tagline for the christening post of this cinematic sanctuary. Let me preface this by saying that it’s about time there were a movie about a female who enjoyed being single and wasn’t a basket-case, mistress, murderer, or miserable while searching for a happily ever after. Well, “Alice” is looking for a happily ever after, but, a happily ever after with herself.

Of course most of it is at least somewhat predictable, but, that’s inevitable in this kind of thing. We all know you’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince or, in this case, find out that you don’t even need a prince at this juncture in life just because others seem to. It’s 2016, the damsel in distress to independent women ratio should have changed greatly by now.
