I have been wanting to see the Trolls World Tour movie for a while. Admittedly, I did not see the first one, but I got the gist. Typically, at the beginning of a sequel to a kid’s movie, they will do a brief catch up to bring the audience up to speed with what happened in the first movie. I knew who Poppy and Branch were and who does their voices. I figured that is all I need to know.
Okay, so this movie is so perfect. How many of us at one point only thought it was cool to like a certain type of music whether it be Pop, Rock, etc. Well in the movie, each land of trolls is a different type of genre of music. Each land has a particular guitar string. The rocker trolls are my favorite! Something happened to cause everyone to go their separate ways. Poppy and Branch are determined to reunite the world of trolls through music, but if each string that belongs to a particular genre of music gets into the wrong hands, then it could be mean world domination.
Of course the Rocker Trolls want to use the strings to unite every toll in the name of Rock! Well Poppy and Branch have to work together to stop the Rocker trolls from using it for their own gain and hopefully successfully reunite every genre in a peaceful way.
There are so many good messages to this movie and it is definitely a must see.
I went walking in the morning and sat down to write my paper for Capstone class .
In the evening, we went to the movies to see Unhinged. I have been dying to see this movie. I love a good thriller.
Of course, we had to wear a mask upon entering the theatre, in the lobby, and then once we were inside the theatre, we could remove our masks as long as we were eating and drinking.
Honestly, we did not care we had to wear masks. We were just so happy to be back at the movies again! Even though we had to wear masks, it was still such an enjoyable experience to escape from the chaos that is happening in life.
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.
After work today, I went to the movies with Anthony. We went to Southside Works Cinema. I was excited to see Rocketman! I haven’t been to Southside Works Cinema in years. It is a little run down compared to Cinemark. Tickets were only $5. It was a half off movie night.
After we got our tickets, we went upstairs to the concession area. I bought us a small popcorn to share which was $6.75. Anthony bought two bottled waters that was $9.00. It is expensive! I typically smuggle in my own water, but I didn’t have time to stop anywhere on the way.
Once inside the theater, there was no one there we were hoping it was going to be an empty theater. We sat in the first row of seats that has a bar separating the platform from the floor. We like to put our feet on the bar. The seats were flimsy and didn’t recline. Anthony said, “What the hell is this.” We took a selfie in case we wanted to look back on this moment and laugh. The picture is a little dark, but it works.
Once the movie started, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was almost like a Musical, singing dancing. I didn’t know much about Elton John. I know his songs, but I didn’t know much about him as a person, or his background. His family life was kind of sad and his mom was supportive and mean.
However, he was so gifted on the piano from the time he was a child. It seemed as though he could hear a song and then play it immediately on the piano. I wish I could do that.
There were parts of the movie that moved kind of slow, but overall I really enjoyed it and it was a great start to Pride week. It is also Anthony’s birthday week. 🙂
