Wanna see a great movie?

Hello everyone. Ok I am a lover of all kinds of things-books, music, movies. But once in awhile one of these things just stands out and continues to stay with me. This time it’s a movie called The Best of Me. Have you seen it? If not, you should. It is AMAZING!!

It features an incredible cast:

James Marsden (Party of Five, 27 Dresses, Disturbing Behavior):

Michelle Monaghan (Made of Honor, Eagle Eye, Ghost Protocol) as Amanda:

Luke Bracey (Dance Academy, G.I.) as a young Dawson:

image

Liana Liberato (Trust) as a young Amanda:

And Gerald McRaney (Major Dad) as Tuck:

First of all, this movie is from Nicholas Sparks, the king of Romance. You will know what I’m talking about if you have ever seen The Notebook, The Longest Ride, Dear John, or A Walk to Remember. So just by that alone, you know it’s going to be good. A real heart stopper and a real tear jerker. 

I don’t want to ruin the movie for you so I will just tell you the basics.

A boy from a bad family (Dawson) falls for a good girl from an upscale family (Amanda). She falls for him just as hard. And when Dawson’s father bears him, he runs away and finds shelter with a widower named Tuck.

The teenager’s love is evident and you just know they will be together. But then, of course, tragedy strikes and rips the two apart.

20 years later, they have a second chance to be together. And it seems like they finally will but then tragedy strikes again. What happens next? You will have to watch it to find out.

But let me say this. This movie will make you believe in the power of true love, the realness of destiny, and the mystery of life. It is one that will make you laugh, make you cry, steal your heart, and capture your soul. I have added the trailer link for you below. Do yourself a favor and check it out today. You won’t be sorry. Enjoy!!

Rent This Today

Hello all. Last night I watched a movie called Black or White. You may have heard of it especially if you are a Kevin Costner fan. This is a wonderful movie that proves that to some, a person’s race doesn’t matter. Black or white, it’s what’s on the inside that matters. Here’s a summary:

Elliot Anderson (played by Kevin Costner) has already lost his daughter when she was giving birth to her daughter, Eloise. The fact that the baby’s father is black does not matter to him or his wife. That little girl is their grand baby. Plain and simple. The father however is a crack addict that could care less about his gurkfriend’s death, let alone the birth of his daughter. Together Elliot and his wife raise Eloise until she is 7 years old when tragedy strikes Elliot’s life once more when his wife is killed in a car accident. Suddenly Elliot is left to care for a 7 year old girl while trying to hold his grief in check. He has been drinking nonstop since his daughter died and now with his wife gone, it has only gotten worse. 

Now in steps Rowena (played by Octavia Spencer-u may know her from the movie The Help as the s**t pie maker-another great movie to check out by the way). Rowena is the other grandmother of Elolise. Since Elliot’s wife is gone, she wants custody of Eloise. Wants her to be around the “dark” side of the family. Elliot is not about to lose a third female in his life so starts a custody trial. 

During the course of this, Eloise’s father, Reggie, comes back around and  Elliot, despite his knowledge of the lowlife Reggie, tries to connect his granddaughter with her father. But Reggie is still on a crash course with drugs. A path that his sister, Rowena, refuses to see. 

Rowena’s case is loosely built on the opinion that Elliot has a problem with black people when in fact, it is just Reggie because of his actions. Right before the day the decision about custody, Reggie comes to get money from Elliot. $50,000 and he will go away forever. A fight ensues and Elliot nearly drowns while Reggie goes up to his sleeping daughter’s room. He finds photos of Elliot’s daughter on the wall and a drawing Eloise has made that brings him to tears. Running outside, Reggie sees Elliot in the pool and saves his life. 

At the trial, things drastically change. Reggie decides to get help, Rowena decides to leave Eloise with Elliot, and Elliot decides to get help with his drinking.  Eloise is to stay with Rowena for a few weeks while Elliot learns how to “breathe” again but not before Rowena gives him a big hug. 

With all of the horrible things going on about racism and hate and killing, it was nice to see a movie that reminds you that no matter what, black or white, people are just people. There are good and bad in every race. And I just think, what if we could just look beyond the color of other’s skin and saw each other for what they are-people with hopes and dreams just like us? What if we could just see people as people and not as black or white? It’s nice to know that some of us do. That means there is still hope for everyone else. 

A Hard Hitting Movie

Hi everyone. I know that most have you have probably seen this movie but if not, it is definitely one worth checking out. American Sniper

 

At first, I thought it might just be a war story and wasn’t sure I wanted to watch it but I gave it a try and I’m glad I did. It is waaaay more than a “war” story.

It is a story of how one man, Chris Kyle, was determined to stand up for what he believed in but at the same time, it showed me a glimpse into his private life. A life with a wonderful wife and two lovely children. And it doesn’t stop there.


Not only does it show Chris’ story but also portrays the struggles of other military soldiers. The struggles they face everyday while putting their lives on the line to defend our country and keep us safe. The struggles they face when they return home and try to fit back into the life they left to defend us.


    
In my mind, Chris is and was a hero. For the things he did overseas and here at home. But he is one among many. It just so happens that this movie is HIS personal story.

Our military undoubtly deserve our love and respect and while this post is about the movie, American Sniper, we need not to forget all that they do for us every single day. God bless them.


Check this movie out!

Hi everybody. I love watching movies. Romance, action, comedy, thriller, drama, sci-fi. It doesn’t matter what genre it is as long as it’s good. And Insurgent (the 2nd in the Divergent series) fits the bill.  It’s got everything a person could want in a movie. Action, suspense, romance, great actors (including a very delectable Four/Tobias) and many “Oh-my-gosh,-I-can’t-believe-that” moments. If you are a fan of Twilight, Hunger Games, and Divergent, do yourself a favor and check this movie out. You won’t be disappointed. Enjoy!

Am Amazing Movie

If u want to check out an incredible, action packed movie, let me recommend The Equalizer. This movie us extremely detailed and action packed. It stars Denzel Washington as an average Joe, a good guy that goes to work every day and strives to help those around him. Including a poor girl forced into prostitution. But when the girl’s pimp refuses to let her go, this average Joe takes matters into his own hands doing everything he has to to help her escape the awful place she’s found herself. A truely great movie that keeps u on the edge of ur seat and saying “Oh my gosh!” So go check it out today. U won’t be sorry.

Check out this movie!

I know I’m a little behind the times here. I mean, I don’t even have an iphone. I’ve never had one and probably won’t have one. I usually don’t get to see the movies as soon as they come out in theaters. Redbox has become a way of life for me it seems. But I watched a great movie this weekend. Divergent. If you haven’t seen it, please do. It has the same feel as The Hunger Games. I loved it! It had action, romance, drama. The whole package. Definitely a movie to check out if you haven’t already.

A Movie Worth Checking Out

If you haven’t seen the movie Remember Me by now, it is one that you have got to see. Even if you are not a fan of Robert Pattinson (what am I saying? Who wouldn’t be?), this movie is still great. Its got a powerful message of survival, giving forgiveness, the all ecompassing element of love, and of course remembering those closest to us. And not so close. The ending is a major surprise and for those that shed a little tear at movies when they call for it, this one will probably have you reaching for a tissue or two. Definitely check it out. It will be one that stays with you long after the movie credits have rolled.
