After Andrew was done with work, we went to go see Emma. I tried to prep Andrew for the movie. I said think Clueless, but less modern. I was so excited for this movie to come out. I love period pieces. The movie was so good! I loved the costumes and the dialogue. I think there is a bit of Emma in each of us. I also liked the actor who played Mr. Knightly. The actors were well picked for the characters.
This evening, Drew and I saw the new Star Wars movie. I am not a huge Star Wars fan. I am more of a Darth Vader fan, but he is dead. So now there is Ky lo Ren, who flirts with the dark side, but isn’t 100% dark side. He is annoying. Vader needs to resurrect.
Drew wasn’t impressed with the movie either. I guess there was someone else who took over and pretty much tried to fix and make whatever the other guy did to the last movie better. I don’t know I don’t know the back story like Drew does.
I am sure there will be another one. 🙂
This evening Drew finally took me to see Frozen 2. I was so excited. I already sort of knew what was going to happen. I think Drew liked it as well.
The only thing I didn’t care for is that Anna is so needy. She wants to do everything with Elsa. Elsa needed to go into the unknown alone in order to discover things about herself. It was her own journey. Anna is supposed to be a bit older in this season, but she didn’t seem like it. I liked the movie, but I think the the first one is better, which always seems to be the case with sequels.
This afternoon I took my mom to see the Mr. Roger’s movie. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew it wasn’t going to be fully about Mr. Rogers, but more about a reporter who did a story on Mr. Rogers. I grew up watching Mr. Rogers neighborhood. I used to love King Friday, and Daniel Tiger. I remember watching it at my grandma’s house.
Admittedly, as I got older, most of the things that Mr. Rogers taught me in my childhood about forgiveness, respect everyone, and liking people for who are I have found is hard to do sometimes, as I have moved through life and have experienced certain things, but I am sure this is the case for everyone. However, Mr. Rogers makes us feel like it is never too late to start over.
I highly recommend this movie it will make you reevaluate things and give you a new perspective.
on Sunday, my mom and I went to the movies to see Judy. I thought it was so good. Renee Zellwegger gave me an idea of what Judy looked like back then before she passed. I think she did an amazing job. Judy seemed to be a complex person. I loved the Wizard of Oz when I was a child.
At one point in the movie, she sang Somewhere over the Rainbow, and the audience joined in. I love that song. It brings back such wonderful memories from my childhood, and my grandmother on my dad’s side. I used to watch the Wizard of Oz over and over again.
This evening, I finally saw the Downton Abbey movie! It was everything and more! I loved the story, and the plot. I mis this show so much. I will admit I cried at the end. There will never be another show like it. I actually wouldn’t mind seeing it again. I love lady grantham’s zingers. I highly recommend the movie!
- I liked how the whole Irish and English conflict was portrayed
- Thankfully, George Clooney was not in the movie (he doesn’t need to be in Downton Abbey)
- Lady Mary is still freaking out about whether or not it is best financially to run Downton
- Lady Edith will win you over if she hasn’t already!
- Old Lady Grantham tries to reassure Mary that she has to take over Downton and continue to keep Downton running, because she won’t be alive much longer. I cried I just cried. It was a passing the torch kind of moment. A nod to the newer generation!
The list goes on and on. I may have to watch see it again. I am just so in love!
I have been wanting to see this movie for so long. When I saw the previews for the movie, I was at theatre with my best friend, Anthony. He said, this looks like a biopic of your life. We laughed.
The second time I saw the preview for After was when I went to the movies with Jenna and Wynn to see Cruel Intentions. Jenna turned to me and said, “What is the plot?” I shrugged my shoulders and said it doesn’t need a plot he is hot!
While I was watching the movie, I thought about what Anthony said and laughed a little. However none of the guys in my past were as hot as Hero. It has been a long time since there was a good chick flick movie. There are references to great works of literature such as Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice. After combines a hot male main character with a trouble past and literature! Two things that make me swoon! If you have the chance watch it.
After I finished the movie, I goggled “After” and found that the movie is actually a book series by Anna Todd. She based it off of Harry Styles fan fiction. Harry Styles? I don’t think he is that good looking, but okay. I am going to have to check out these books.
Spoiler Alert: The movie has an open ending! Ugh, I think they are together, but I need to know for sure.
