Finding Dory: Movie Review

After seeing Finding Nemo (and bawling my eyes out), I couldn’t WAIT for the sequel since the story was original, captivating, humorous, emotional, and full of valuable life lessons. It was such a fantastic family movie! I loved everything about it! Once the sequel was CONFIRMED, the child in me jumped for joy! Unfortunately, the […]

Anne of Green Gables: Books versus Movies

When a book is turned into a movie, the popular sentiment is that the books are better the movies. I abide by that sentiment myself. Written words are very powerful; they enable people to conjure up images from nothing, dig into a person’s psyche and really understand the individual’s motivations, and, overall, enter a new […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Movie Review

Before the film… When I was first informed of this movie, I was beyond ecstatic. Why? Because the question of, “who would win?” would FINALLY be addressed.

“The Danish Girl” Movie Review – A True Test of Love

Before the film… I can’t recall when I first saw this trailer, but I remember being completely intrigued by it for two reasons:. 1. Because I love Eddie Redmayne and I’m a HUGE fan of his (since seeing him in My Week with Marilyn and Les Miserables) and 2. Because JUST in the trailer, you could already tell […]
