The Sixth Sense review

Posted : 5 days, 17 hours ago on 18 September 2017 09:56 (A review of The Sixth Sense)

This movie is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. It is a work of art, an wonderful, emotional experience and a true classic. There's really not much more to say...the acting is excellent, particularly from young Haley Joel Osment, who had a hard task in portraying the extremely deep character of Cole Sear. Bruce Willis, as well, gives an outstanding performance in the best role I've seen him in before or since. At once touching, suspenseful, joyous, sad, and shocking, The Sixth Sense is a movie everyone should see at least once. Don't let its categorization by some as a horror movie scare you away...it isn't a horror movie. It's a drama, and one of the greatest ones of all at that.

Forrest Gump review

Posted : 5 days, 17 hours ago on 18 September 2017 09:52 (A review of Forrest Gump)

Forest Gump is a movie about a below average man who achieves much than anyone would expect and while being in this journey he entertains us. He is declared below average at school, has got braces in his legs during childhood, has a friend jenny who he loves, has a mother who guides him through thick and thin. After school he joins as rugby player excels at it. After rugby he joins army excels at it. He makes great friends with sergeant and a Bubba. After that he excels at ping pong. Sets a shrimp business, becomes rich, runs for a record distance continuously, gets back home. Gets out to search for jenny, who has been in trouble a lot lately. Gets to know about his kid with jenny, and helps him grow.

The movie is simple, emotional, family drama where Tom Hanks is excellent. Great job by director and film makers to create such a movie.

I recommend to watch this movie with family.

Pay It Forward review

Posted : 5 days, 17 hours ago on 18 September 2017 09:49 (A review of Pay It Forward)

The concept of the story is brilliant. It's become such a saying now to 'pay it forward' but I'm not sure if it even originated from this movie. The concept was told in a terrific way and really captured the ripple effect. Some viewers might not like this (being cynics), but I love it.

Here we have a kid who was is doing his best to change the world while the adults who initially encouraged him to are ultimately the ones holding him back. I cried the first time I watched it, and though I didn't cry during the second time, I could really feel the emotions emitting from the screen. I was actually suppressing my laughter during the climactic scene because I was waiting to see if my guy friend would cry (he didn't), but the bubble of laughter died away really quickly and gave way to sadness. The family dynamics as well as the interactions with his teacher was so well executed and detailed that it just brought the whole film together.

To me this film is near flawless because I love it so much.

The Power review

Posted : 5 days, 17 hours ago on 18 September 2017 09:43 (A review of The Power)

This book doesn't just flip gender roles. It delves into complicated discussions around systemic oppression, power, rape culture, gender, and religion. The book is an unflinching dystopian yet also a mirror of our world today. It forces you to ask hard questions about your beliefs. It's also a ridiculously gripping story that had me sucked in and invested in every character.

My Mad, Fat Diary review

Posted : 1 week, 4 days ago on 12 September 2017 10:58 (A review of My Mad, Fat Diary)

My Mad Fat Diary is one of the funniest, most touching, realistic, well written and brilliant shows I have ever seen. Pretty much my favorite show of all time and I think that viewers of all age groups and social groups could relate to it in someway. 10/10! The characters are well formed, interesting, lovable, relatable and very realistic. This show touches on some very heavy subjects of youth and young life, but does so with the utmost respect and understanding of complexity. The actress that plays Rae is so perfect for the role, and the actor that plays her love interest Finn is fantastic and absolutely gorgeous to look at!

The Disappointments Room review

Posted : 1 week, 4 days ago on 12 September 2017 09:14 (A review of The Disappointments Room)

The acting and camera-work are good and the story, a haunted house tale, has merit. The real and the psychosis are delightfully muddled, so the most effective, or not confusing at all, when taken from the perspective of Dana's (Kate Beckinsale), meaning that you can watch in different ways, as if watching a completely different movie - it just keeps on giving!

American Horror Story review

Posted : 3 weeks, 2 days ago on 1 September 2017 01:08 (A review of American Horror Story)

American Horror Story is the complete definition of beautiful television. Each Season is self contained with a cast so spectacular, that its hard not to watch. Every single season of this show brings joy to me, the producers manage to capture factual elements of 'horror' in this show for everyone's enjoyment. There are pretty exciting season connections along the way. The character development is so well done- we learn all their back stories, qualities and traits throughout the season, enabling us to connect with them. This is my #1 favorite show of all time. I recommend it to EVERYONE! American Horror Story is sheer beauty in my eyes, a true classic work of art!!!

Even More Terrible Tudors (Horrible Histories) review

Posted : 3 weeks, 2 days ago on 1 September 2017 01:01 (A review of Even More Terrible Tudors (Horrible Histories))

I believe any child who has an interest in history should give these books a go. They’re truly gripping and so many topics are covered.

The Magical Adventures of Luna Vanx review

Posted : 2 months, 1 week ago on 17 July 2017 01:15 (A review of The Magical Adventures of Luna Vanx)

I really enjoyed this little book. It's a children's book, but I think there is sufficient humor and twists and turns within it, to entertain certain young at heart adults.

It's about a little girl who leads a miserable existence until she discovers a magical, secret world. She and her dog go on an adventure, where they encounter many different characters and there are life lessons to be learned. They have to save the world by killing the evil witch, of course. The usual fairy tale type characters feature, as well as normal, real life characters. It brings both a traditional fairy tale, adventure story, in the vein of the Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland and a more modern telling, such as Harry Potter together, in a very readable, flowing mix. Interestingly, it's purported to be written by the little girl in the story.

I did find the beginning a little slow, but by chapter three I was addicted and read through it in one go. I would further note that I will be re-reading it, not just for enjoyment, but to ensure I caught and understood all the little twists and turns, where characters re-appear and become other characters, all very interesting stuff. I also found it quite entertaining that there are lots of compendium pieces available, for both adults and children, so hopefully there will be further stories to read in the future.
