A Wrinkle In Time

You guys!!!! OMG!!! This movie means so much to me I couldn’t believe I was watching it at the point in time when I did. I am a firm believer that everything in life (or in my life at least) happens for a reason, always! I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe …..pretty much in everything “A Wrinkle In Time” stands for. It is so beautiful when a film can give you this sense of worthiness and a sense of “I can do everything I ever dreamed of doing”, “I am powerful”.

I was sitting there thinking ” wow, If only we had more movies like this one, the world would probably be more focused on love and all the positive things that truly matter.”

It has been such a self-discovery beginning of the year for me and I am in shock I had never heard of the book before because this film touched so many topics I have dealt with in my life  and things I am still dealing with even as an adult ,such as: fear, doubt, not believing in myself enough, having limiting thoughts, how to deal with the darkness that surrounds us at all times  and not focus on it. If this movie did that for me, only imagine the things that it must have done for kids and teenagers. Oprah is Queen too, I mean!!!! She was the perfect person to play MRS Which.

Ya’ll!!!!! If you haven’t watched “A Wrinkle in Time” Please do so! Get it in Blu-Ray, DVD, Buy it, Amazon Prime Video, whatever and however but ,please watch it because even if you don’t believe in things like a higher power than ourselves or if you think it might be lame, trust me, it’s not. You will leave inspired. And ,what are we without inspiration? Just a bunch of bodies without purpose. 

 

 

 

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

“A Game for Those Who Seek To Find A Way To Leave Their World Behind”

I remember as a little girl Jumanji was one of my all time favorite adventure movies. And coming from the little girl in Cuba who had no much access to movies and really needed to leave her world behind, says a lot! ok? Well, as I was saying- Jumanji was one of those films that transported me. I could watch it over and over and always made me gasp.

When I found out they were making a new Jumanji I sort of freaked out. My first thought was “OMG, they’re going to ruin Jumanji for me forever!” And questions like: Who’s going to take Robin Williams’ place? etc etc. popped up in my head. It was to my entire surprise and pleasure when I watched Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle ,how much I actually enjoyed it. Not only did I enjoy it but completely appreciated the story. I even think I like The Rock more now!They didn’t try to copy the original plot, instead, they made it 2017 friendly, and relatable. The comedy and timing were great. I saw each adult character playing the kids and that’s what made it hilarious. For some reason, 2017 seemed to be the year of remakes and for once I can say  this one  wasn’t a complete failure. Well, IT was great too hehe.  I wasn’t one hundred percent in-love with the new Jumanji but I enjoyed it.

My advice if you haven’t watched it yet is that you definitely do. However, don’t expect it to be like the original. Somehow the 90’s had a magical way of telling stories, I miss that. Films today seem to need to come with tricks in order to keep people’s attention. I miss the magic of the simplicity of back then. But, one thing I can say. This film didn’t disappoint.

Until next time movie lovers! And Happy 2018!!! Let me know what movie you’re excited to watch in this new year!! Hint Hint- I already have two ,and one stars Natalie Portman 😉

“The Mountain Between Us”

Love is everywhere and all around us, within us every day. Are you one of those people who think you have your love  life figured out ? What if suddenly life shows you otherwise?

This is what this film is all about: ❤️Love in its purest forms. When it happens organically, when you really fall for someone because of who they are and the way they make you feel. No trying to impress anyone, no lies, no pretended chivalry, no make up, no fancy dinners or clothes….. this is a movie simply about two strangers who are brought together by an accident and are forced to care and trust one another in order to survive. They both have their inner battles and yet, they manage not to give up and they push each other to make it through.

I’ve literally spent all week watching movies, looking for one that would really inspire me to write (because definitely Blade Runer wasn’t it) and this is by far my favorite since “It” came out.  It had so much substance and great acting that I did not mind the time I was sitting there. It kept me wanting me to see more and find out what happens next. The story is great and it’s told beautifully and easy to follow and although it could’ve easily been a boring film , it wasn’t. It kept me engaged the whole entire time. It had very emotional scenes, and the ending I thought was so real. I’m trying really hard not to spoil it for you guys!!
