What’s up, What’s up, what’s poppin’ movie lovers!? I am back and I’m back with a goodie. This is my first review on a Netflix film so wooohoooo!!! Give it up and I present to you….CARGO!!! A film about a father, a baby daughter, a deadly epidemic in Australia, and last but not least, a tribe of hella’ good native people.

If you are anything like me, you are probably very skeptical about selecting this movie because of the simple fact that, c’mon! How many zombie flicks can we really come up with that are actually original after The Walking Dead? Not very many. BUUUUUUUT! It kept me interested throughout, and SPOILER ALERT- It’s not the typical movie where the main actor AKA hero goes through all sorts of struggles that may even seem impossible to overcome and you’re like waaaaaaaa ? and then he miraculously lives until the end. NO, on this one, from the very early stages of the film we know that he’s doomed, like, for real. And now he’s got a problem: His baby daughter with no one to care for her. So, If you’re looking for an action packed zombie movie, this is clearly not for you but, if you are up for a nice heart-felt story with some action, some zombies and are even up to share a tear at the end then….. I recommend it. I thought the story was great- showing that compassion is always the way, showing the love that we should have for one another.
In my opinion, the ending is worth the watching 😉

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. 

 

 

 

“Listen To Me Marlon “

Watch Here

Hello Movie Lovers! I know this isn’t a fresh out of the oven film but I recently saw it for the very first time at Tahoe’s Film Festival and it deeply touched my soul. Not my heart, my entire being.  I had heard the name Marlon Brando before but, If I’m very honest, I’m a 90’s baby. I had no idea who he was. All I knew was: “Marlon Brando, The Greatest Actor of All Time.” A great actor who lived……..but did he?

Marlon Brando revolutionized Hollywood with his Method Acting  in the 1950’s, 60’s and pretty much all throughout his life. Even in his career decay people still looked up to his talent and even imitated him. Film Stars from the era such as James Dean wanted to be like him.

Actor, Activist, “Hollywood’s Bad Boy.” , “difficult to work with”. So much could be said about Marlon and so much has been said, in fact. When you watch this film, you will see his journey from his own words and point of view. It will touch you, whether you’re an actor or just an admirer or simply someone who’s curious. This will make your heart melt and think in directions you’ve never thought about life before. I have never felt admiration, love, disgust, dislike, anger, and empathy all at the same time for an actor before until I watched this documentary.

When we look at someone under the magnifying glass of fame we think that because they’re exposed to popularity, we  strongly believe in our hearts they have it easier, more secure, comfortable, “GIVEN”. And what most people seem to forget is that WITH GREATER POWER COMES GREATER RESPONSIBILITY.  Marlon’s responsibility and power affected his probably most precious treasure-his kids, therefore, himself. Because as Newton said; ” Every Action has An Equal and Opposite Reaction.” As I sat in the theater and listened to the roller coaster of his life I realized that people have no idea of the burdens artists carry with them when they put all of their energy into their work, or what kind of pain they are pulling that energy from, wearing their hearts on their sleeves at all times. Some actors like myself, using Acting as therapy. As a way to channel present and past experiences and allowing it to liberate us from the world or to have a chance to walk in somebody else’s shoes. As human beings we are not gods, we aren’t invincible, we are all perishable, and we are all measured, not by what we have financially or how much success we have but by who we are in our core and being.

Marlon “had it all” in everyone’s eyes and in everyone’s eyes he lived in glory. He had a  “perfect life” and at some moments I’m sure it felt perfect but, truly…..did he?

The answer is yours after you listen to Marlon.

GEOSTORM

 

Do you guys remember the movie “Twister” from back in ‘96? I remember it being one of my ultimate favorite movies growing up. The 2017 “Twister” is “Geostorm”. Very thrilling, very action-packed, and funny! It’s a different  story,different, elements of technology and not quite “Twister” but, enjoyable.  I wouldn’t rate it an 8 but something about it still timeless. There hasn’t been great films out in a while but that’s another story! Back to “Geostorm” ….. Although I did find that there weren’t enough “natural disasters moments” and the plot mostly takes place in outer space, which, I actually liked since I’m a sucker for space movies .  However, I did realize it’s not what the trailer sells. Overall,  I thought it was entertaining, and I enjoyed the ending very much.
