OTD #298 Thor: Ragnarok Review

Last week I saw a movie called Thor: Ragnarok, and let’s just say… it… was… AMAZING!!! The Thor series has probably been one of my favorite Marvel movies and this movie set the bar even higher.

What I liked most about the movie style this time is that t had a lot more comedy even though there was a harder heartbreak than the rest (you’ll just have to watch the movie to find out!). And the comedy wasn’t too much or trying too hard as well, which I liked a lot. Because sometimes trying too hard can make something seem cringy and we all DO NOT like cringe. A lot of the times, being subtle is the best.

Something that I liked the most about the movie itself, not including the acting, etc., were the moments when it looked like a painting when a fight scene was happening. If you haven’t seen the movie, let me explain. I’m talking about the paintings where men and women look like they’re floating while being fed grapes and angels are playing a harps. Get me me now? Anyways, when the fight scenes would happen, it filled me with so many different emotions because I would expect a regular fight to happen but then BAM! Slow majesticness would happen and everyone would look so freaking badass.

The third thing I liked the most was the music. It sounded so different and galaxy esc that it made the movie awesome by that. Don’t get me wrong, regular good ol’ movies scores are amazing and art itself but this music was different and just what we all needed if the series was going to be carried out.

Overall, this movie was great and I’m stoked to see Black Panther (which looks amazing as well) and the third Avengers movie too.

If you’re looking for a twist on a superhero movie, this one is for you!

Much love,

OTD #290 Thank You for Your Service Review!

This past weekend, I saw another great movie, Thank You for Your Service. I have a few things to say about this movie, so let’s hop into it!

As someone who grew up on movies, I love to watch all sorts of movies. One category I like a lot is war oriented movies. Now this one was a lot different than what I thought it was going to be. Side note, nowadays I like to not read too much on what movies are about becuase I don’t want to expect certain things to happen.

WARNING! SPOILERS!

In the movie, it focused a lot more on the aftermath on your body when getting done fighting in a war. Moreorless, the toll on your mind. As someone who suffers from mind games like this, I can relate a lot but that doesn’t mean I know exactly how they feel because I don’t. So if you don’t know what I mean, just imagine remembering a bad event constantly. So much that it’s all you can think about sometimes and then it starts to take control over you and you rethink and blame whatever happened on yourself. It’s just a little something like that. Anyways, these men the story focuses on each have their own battles and help isn’t there for them. The tools are but the instructor isn’t and they all need help NOW. This movie made me realize how bad the system is and that it can’t help everyone at once. I’m not sure of how all of that stuff goes but from someone on the outside, it makes you feel like you don’t matter unless you can physically see something wrong. Through this movies, they also showed how much suicidal thoughts can really affect you and the others around you without you really knowing. Also, I don’t know if it was actually like this or if the director wanted it this war or if it was unintentionally, but I feel like a lot of the family and friends weren’t really there for each other, except the ones who experienced the war. That’s one thing that kind of frustrated me because I don’t see how you can be so upset at someone when you can clearly see who distraught they are. But I wasn’t involved, so I could be seeing this in a different way.

These were just a few thoughts of my own on this movie. Nonetheless, it was a really good movie and I’m so happy that the film industry finally made a good movie on the aftermath of someone who fought. If you’re interested, I recommend seeing it!

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #269 Gore movies or paranormal movies???

Good afternoon or good morning or good evening 😉 So I’m back and I feel a lot better! Though, I’m still not sleeping the best, I did get about an extra three and a half hours of sleep after waking up at 3 AM. I think it’s starting to go back to normal just a little and I’m so happy, haha! I never thought I’d be so happy about sleep.

Anyways, I promised more spooky posts and today I wanted to talk about your favorite halloween movies. Let’s get into it!

When I first started getting into scary movies, I was a die hard fan of the Michael Myers series. Even though they were old, something about them caught my eye and I honestly liked all of them but the first one is one of my favorites. To be honest, I haven’t watched one of those movies probably for at least a few years. So hopefully Netflix comes out with some of those movies, because that would be great.

Another favorite movie is more or less the genre, you guessed it, paranormal. So there aren’t really too many movies that are done very well to make you believe in it, which kind of sucks. Obviously I like the Paranormal Activity movies and a few others that I can’t name off the top of my head right now, but like I said, there aren’t too many good ones. But sometimes the cheesy ones are pretty good too, haha!

I also like the ones where the main character goes a little crazy. Have I mentioned that before?… I love it when a character goes bat shit crazy. You don’t see it too much but when you see it in their eyes and get that creeped out feeling, I love it! LOL, I know, I’m really weird!

Well, that’s it. So wheat’s your favorite halloween movie? Tell me in the comment section down below or if you don’t like them, why?

Anyways, I hope you have a great thursday!

Much love,

Chloe ❤

On The Daily #63

DISNEY WORD OF THE DAY!!!

To start off this week’s theme of Disney word of the day, I wanted to do something a little different. Instead of just telling you words that you could use instead of another, I thought sharing words that most people probably don’t know the meaning of.

Today’s word is giza buyabo. This is from the broadway musical version of The Lion King. And what this basically means is I will return. At that point of the musical, Nala was saying how she needed to go and do something. She could no longer sit and follow orders when she knew something better was awaiting her.

30 Days of Thankfulness Day 23: Movies you can Watch Again… and Again

I LOVE MOVIES. They are something I can always fall back on if I’ve had a bad day or if I need to do something. My movies tastes range from drama, animation, scary, comedy, and even some old movies. I grew up my entire life watching movies as something fun to do. My family always would watch a movie while we had dinner, which lead to us having a million different movies. And as for a family of six, we went out to watch movies at the movie theater for fun.

Here is a list of some of my favorite movies of all time. Like I said before, I like a wide range of movies.

  • The Hunger Games Trilogy
  • The Expendables
  • True Grit
  • The Lion King
  • The Color Purple
  • The Hobbit Trilogy
  • The Silver Lining
  • Cinderella (live action)
  • Pocahontas
  • The Chronicles of Narnia
  • The Magnificent Seven
  • Spirit: Stallion Cimarron
  • Any Marvel movie 🙂

30 Days of Happiness: Day 22

“You might not have experienced the shit that I did — but you loved hearing about it, didn’t you? You are afraid to be alive. You’re afraid to live. You’re a conformist. You’re a hypocrite. You’re a liar. I opened up to you and you judged me.”

 

This was a quote taken from the movie, Silver Linings Playbook, from the character Tiffany.

 

I liked this part of the movie because there was so much passion in the acting and later on. Not to mention most of the movie.

 

Movies have played a big part of my life. It was entertainment for a family of six. Since we didn’t have the most money, we watched movies for our family time and any other time. It was a good two hours when no one spoke. The only sound was what the actors said.

 

Not only were they entertainment, movies have been one of the top encouragements for me writing as of right now. Movies have shown me that life hits you with a lot, but you have to keep pushing through, even if that means tearing yourself down. It have become a strong motto of mine. And I really encourage you to find a good movie that you’ll enjoy to just sit down and watch.
Movies bring out a certain type of happiness in me that I won’t ever get rid of and I’m glad for that.
