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.

FOREVER MY GIRL

What a beautiful feeling when a film speaks to you! A film that makes me want to sit down and write and share it with the whole world. That’s what I’m aiming for with this blog: TO MAKE YOU FEEL because without feelings, this whole beautiful lie of a world we live in wouldn’t be the same.   Trailerforever my girl

“Forever My Girl” is not for those who think  love is silly, nor is it a chick flick. I think it’s far from a chic flick. My definition of a chic flik is a super corny, cheesy, declaration of love that, most likely is nowhere close to reality and has people thinking love is a fairy  tale waiting to happen ,without realizing that love isn’t always a walk in the park. Nonetheless, when you come across a romantic picture that takes you through hoops and bumps, reminds you that we all make mistakes no matter what we have or who we are. That we all feel scared, feel pain, and we all run away sometimes, turn our backs on people we LOVE. That we all hide, we all freeze, we all cry, we are all  scared of true love at some point and yet, we all come back to it and the core of who we really are sooner or later……that, my beautiful movie lovers, that’s a film that’s far from being a chic flik.  It’s one of those movies that checks you back into reality. And that’s what it did to me…. because I’ve been Billy and I’ve been Josie, and oddly enough, I’ve been Liam too.

I’ve been ABANDONed by my father. I’ve met him, and I have loved him and he has left me …again. My mom has been Josie- always trying to protect me from that pain, and I’ve been Liam -trying to run away from love, trying to protect my heart, I have abandoned, and I have also ignored my childhood issues so they won’t hurt me anymore. At the very end my friends I’ve realized that FEAR doesn’t take you anywhere positive, running away isn’t the answer, and having resentment towards the Liam of my life never saved me from myself.

Maybe that’s why this movie spoke to me, and maybe that’s why  it will not speak to you. In despite of that, what I know without a doubt is that if you choose to watch “Forever My Girl” your heart will melt, you will laugh, smile, you will also reflect on certain situations in you life. And if you’re even a little bit like me, you will end up giving your dad a call after long years of no contact to finally have the courage to get your answers but most importantly…to forgive him, and to forgive the little girl or little boy within you . When a film can make anybody reflect and act upon a certain aspect of their lives, that’s a film worth watching, don’t you think? 😉

‘Til Next Time my Movie Lovers! Embrace yourself. You are beautiful and perfect just the way you are.

“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!!

Mother!

Disclaimer: Don’t watch this film if it’s that time of the month 😋

I really wish I could describe in details what I just experienced , but seeing that it’s already taken me forever just to decide a beginning to this writing that It will be very difficult to do so.
I keep trying to put my thoughts together, probably longer than other times before, because I’m still trying to comprehend myself what just happened. So….! I won’t try to do that. I will not even try to understand the story anymore or what the message was, blah , blah, blah and dispute my point of view with you.
I want to focus on something far more important : feelings. What I felt leaving the theater. All I could think about was how much I genuinely hated this film. And hate is a strong word , right? It’s a word I have rarely used. I felt sooooo angry, so impotent, frustrated, confused but more than confused I was in rage. I felt an anger I haven’t felt in a long time. Thank God my date didn’t walk out on me! 🙈I got so emerged in it that I was silently feeling whatever she (Jennifer Lawrence’s nameless character) was feeling.
At some point I even found myself thinking this film was extremely bad and bloody and graphic and unnecessary and then I thought: “Sisi! Wait a minute! As if something suddenly snapped inside of my brain – “How can a film that made me feel so many emotions and took me on this emotional journey, upside down and sideways in my head be so bad? ” Isn’t that what stories at the movies are supposed to do? Good stories anyway, so I shortly began to understand that the emotional roller coaster I had just experienced was, in fact, incredible.

You are entitled to your own opinions as we all are. Overall, it’s not a film I will ever (willingly)  watch again. The film itself wasn’t my cup of tea and I did not like it. Nor did I like the story. What I did enjoy, however, was the acting. The way the characters moved me. That should say something! I asked one of my friends what he thought about this film because I wanted different opinions. I don’t like reading critic reviews before I write about my movie so it doesn’t influence my opinion in any shape or form but I still like to know what other people think, the viewers, whom are the most important critics anyway!!! The audience!!! This is what my friend said:

Each human has their opinion, religion, believe etc. that movie had all sorts of emotions that take you places you haven’t gone through in a while or ever. I strongly disliked it because for the average audience who disconnect easily from movies and can’t stay present from beginning to end because of different thoughts going through their heads, or checking their phone etc, they can’t or won’t understand it. But then as an artist, I think it gave me a ride full of surprises and l loved it for the way of grabbing you and taking you to different situations, feelings, images, and to leave you at here’s a new love; different girl-different journey, make the artist satisfied and the average audience dissatisfied and angry at the rollercoaster of emotions they went through.” 

… Now, it’s up to you to watch it! Xoxo
