Mockingjay Part 1 & 2

Mockingjay is the third book in the Hunger Games series and frankly my least favorite one. So it made no sense (besides financial reasons) for the third book to be split to two. I had to wait for a while before watching the two movies, and I will be reviewing them as one. Each movie was a bit lengthy and it could have trimmed down a few scenes, but I thought the movies were good in a general sense.

Blind Spot: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Monty Python is a famous British comedy group primarily known for their show Monty Python’s Flying Circus. This was their second motion picture, focusing on the Arthurian legend in where Arthur and his knights are on the search for the Holy Grail. For someone unfamiliar with their work, anything is to be expected. While I loved the way that the group tackled the legend, and had some favorite funny bits, I think this film was not for me.

Thursday Movie Picks: Intersecting Stories

Thursday Movie Picks is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week's theme is about intersecting stories - so an ensemble cast with different story arcs that are somewhat interconnected with each other. Here are my picks for this week.

NY Times By The Book Tag

I've been a bit bookish lately, checking out blogs/vlogs of the book community. There's a lot of tags going on out there, but one that caught my attention was the NY Times By The Book Tag. This was created by Marie Berg, and this looked fun and interesting and I wanted to participate, so here we go!

My Problems with 'Fuller House'

So Fuller House happened. I finished watching the whole revival series, and instead of feeling nostalgic about the whole show, I feel like I cringed-watched the entire show. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the original show, and it had character growth, and completely hooked me since the first season. This one however, I had problems with. Here is a list:

Trailer: The Light Between Oceans

Whenever I've seen photographs of Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander together surfacing, the two doesn't seem to be an affectionate couple. But that is not the case in their film, The Light Between Oceans. I don't know much about this except that it is based on a book, which I am going to try to read before watching this. This looks good and very dramatic and I'm a bit excited for this one.

Sicario

Sicario is the latest venture from Denis Villeneuve, a filmmaker who has skyrocketed since his incredible directing turn in Enemy, as well as his previous works. Starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro, it goes in the world of drug cartels as FBI Agent Kate Macer was brought to a task force headed by Matt Graver, only to see results she wasn’t exactly betting on.

Thursday Movie Picks: Storms/Adverse Weather

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope the weather’s fine in your area because this week’s Thursday Movie Picks (hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves) is all about storms/adverse weather movies! I tried this week, but I don’t watch a lot of storm/weather-centric movies. Here are my picks for the week.
