Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Spoiler Movie Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Spoiler Movie Review

This is not technically a “movie date night” because I saw Fantastic Beasts last week during the Friday matinee showing by myself. Of course, Pierre wasn’t really happy about that but I just couldn’t wait for him to come home from work. I had high expectations for this film. REALLY HIGH expectations and I have to admit that even though I enjoyed the movie, it didn’t live up to what I expected it to be. This is unlike what my experience was when I first saw Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. According to JK Rowling, Fantastic Beasts is NOT a prequel to the […]

Book VS Movie: The Fault in Our Stars

Book VS Movie: The Fault in Our Stars

My Thoughts I was so excited to see The Fault in Our Stars and I wanted to go The Day Before Our Stars event but I didn’t want to go all by my lonesome.  So I waited until I saw it, still by myself mind you, that Saturday.  I expected to cry buckets through the whole film and brought in tissues (a lot of tissues) to be ready.  Unfortunately, I DID NOT cry buckets at all. The whole film was really good.  It followed closely to the book which was great.  Although there were some minor (or maybe major) scenes that […]

Book VS Movie: Divergent

Book VS Movie: Divergent

I saw the movie last Friday on IMAX and it was good, all things considered.  I liked that the film was closely based on the book as opposed to having it go the other way and I think that works in their favor.  I know a lot of readers like me, appreciate movies closely based on our favorite books. Let us start with the actors.  I like that Shailene Woodley had an awkwardness in her that Tris had.  I also thought Theo James is  gorgeous but not brooding enough for the Four in the book.  Now, Kate Winslet plays a […]

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones | Movie Review

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones | Movie Review

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers It has been a couple of weeks since I saw the movie version of City of Bones and despite what others have said, I found it very underwhelming.  True, I never expected the whole movie to follow the book scene by scene but come on!  It was definitely NOT the City of Bones that I read prior to the movie.  To quote the hubby, “We should not have read the book in the first place.”  Yes.  Both of us read it.  Mind you, hubby does not read a lot of YA but I […]
