The Dark Tower (2017) Adaptation

Recently went to watch this movie, which I had been wanting to see since I saw the preview! Along with Stephen King’s other adaptation It (I have no idea if I’m actually going to watch that one, hehe)

The-Dark-Tower

Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), the last Gunslinger, is locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim (Matthew McConaughey), also known as the Man in Black. The Gunslinger must prevent the Man in Black from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together. With the fate of worlds at stake, two men collide in the ultimate battle between good and evil.

La Belle et la Bete (vs. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast)

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before or not but I am a HUGE Beauty and the Beast fan. It was my favorite princess movie from the classics and I went to watch the live adaptation when it came out this year. Then while I was browsing Netflix I learned that there was another one?! Obviously I had to watch it!

This Beauty and the Beast movie is actually really different from the “original”. For one, Belle has 5 other siblings, 2 sisters and 3 brothers. In this movie they all live together in a mansion but have lost their money and are going to live in a cottage in the country. Like all sisters in princess movies, Belle’s sisters think she’s the weird one, they like their fancy dresses, and they’re not as pretty.  Continue reading

The Mummy (Dark Universe Series #1)

I’ve heard of the Mummy movies before and when I saw that this movie was coming out I wasn’t sure if I should go watch it. Lately I feel like there are a lot of sequels coming out and me being the non-movie watcher that I am, wouldn’t understand references to prequels. Of course, then I heard that this movie had nothing to do with the series and I figured I’d give it a chance

The Mummy takes place in the present where Nick and his friend Chris are in Iraq for some treasure hunting, but end up in a bind that requires air support from his army comrades (I have no idea what group he’s in). When they end up bombing the place they’re situated at, the floor caves in and the tomb of princess Ahmanet is revealed. Continue reading

Blood Wars: Another vampire and werewolf movie

The last couple of weeks, my family has gotten into the groove of watching a movie every weekend (or every other weekend). This past weekend we went to watch Blood Wars and I thought I’d give my two cents

P.S. I have not watched the previous movies of this series! Spoilers ahead

If there’s one thing you guys need to know about me, it’s that action movies are My Thing (racing ones too). I love them even though they’re all the same. Blood Wars was an action movie and thus automatically gets an OK score from me.  Continue reading

[Review] Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Hey guys! So my family has been on a movie watching spree recently and I’m slowly coming around with these reviews because why not?

And first one up is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I actually went to watch this one the day after it came out in theatres but I swear it felt like I went a week after (everyone was already talking about it everywhere I went! lol)

Image result for FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

Fantastic Beasts is set in 1926 New York, about 60 years prior to the Harry Potter series. Here we follow Newt Scamander as he travels to NY after having finished an excursion where he documented a series of magical creatures and even kept some in his suitcase. Of course, his little detour in NY becomes more of an adventure as one of his creatures escapes his case, wreaks havoc in a bank, and he’s caught breaking the wizarding laws in America while the community is in a crisis of exposure!

Sounds really fun, no? Continue reading
