My May Wrap Up and June (2015) TBR

 Dear Dames,
                       I read only one book during the month of May 2015. And before you begin to judge me,let me make it clear, I had exams which are very important to me, so I hope you guys understand. 


                           But I'm still a bit embarrassed.


 My May Wrap

But now that I look at my reading pattern in depth, I don't think I read that fast. I need to get better at that. 
If you guys have any tips and tricks for me to read faster and you please them in the comment section.

But come to think ok it, when I'm reading a book it's like a in depth conversation, I like to absorb.

Fanatastic Four(2015) Trailer Review

                                 *****Disclaimer*****
The following review is entirely my opinion. I encourage you to comment but please be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion that's completely ok. These reviews are not meant to be facts or endorsements. I am sharing my opinion and point of view when watching the film.



The Trailer, the trailer......it's ok. As a previous fan of Fantastic Four it not wowing to me but because of my loyalty and curiosity, I will definitely watch the movie.

Firstly, I thought they would continue to with the sex appeal as with the previous group, but they didn't. The stars don't give much sex appeal but are still able to sell the story to me.


Personally, I loved the cast of the previous Fantastic four better.

Yummy!!!
Secondly, I'm not so crazy about the space scenes. I hope the majority of the movie is not set in space. 
Also, I see their powers are still awesome so that's a major plus.

Thirdly, I like the different perspective in which the director's took it is probably one of the main reasons teasing my curiosity. I think the background music in the beginning was probably too much but as the trailer unfolds, I thought it was great for the climactic effects.
Lastly, I thought the end piece was cute.<3
Overall ok trailer.

Pitch Perfect 2 Official Trailer #1 Review

                               *****Disclaimer*****
The following review is entirely my opinion. I encourage you to comment but please be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion that's completely ok. These reviews are not meant to be facts or endorsements. I am sharing my opinion and point of view when watching the film.

Let me first start by saying I am a huge fan of Pitch Perfect.

I will try my best to keep this review bias free....TRY!!!!

Firstly, I love that they introduced the trailer with the acapella song. This song was originally one of favorites from the original Pitch Perfect movie.

It's called, when I'm gone by Anna Kendrick. Here's the link to the song, it's absolute great especially with cups action. 
I remember when this song came out with the movie, my entire class learned actions and they eventually made a video. Which was filmed at our closing last assembly.
*Brings back memories*


Let us carry on with this review. They must have trained hard for this movie because everyone's voices song so crisp and smooth. Just to die for. However,I didn't want the entire trailer to be acapella. And just when I least expect it, exactly one minute into the trailer, they turn up the heat.

*And this is my literal reaction.*

Secondly, the background music was just fueling my excitement. It's called, Into the Jungle by X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons.
*****I did the research for you guys******

And Fat Amy, comes along and adds at dash of comedy which is every signal Pitch Perfect. Come on guys it's Fat Army!!!

Again, I have to speak my mind here, I apologize in advance. But this movie wouldn't be as great without Rebel Wilson.
Her mom probably foreseen this, her name and all definite who she is. Comment down below if you think I'm being unfair with my opinion or do you agree with me.

Anyway this is turning into a fan girl review. Again let us carry on with the review.
Thirdly, I see the director's increased the variety of acapella groups; they took this small scale regional show and blow it up into international scale level.
Which means the stakes are higher and they have to risk it to get the biscuit. 
*I can't believe I typed those words.*
This all of a sudden reminds me of the Cheer leading franchise movies such as bring it on etc. Is it only me!

Lastly,the scenes tho were really funny.

Image result for pictures from pitch perfect 2 trailer
I don't speak loser.
Come on screenwriters, I will admit it s funny but is that all you guys got for smack talk.
*Just saying*
Overall the trailer is great and foretells all the jam packed action, voices and comedy we are about to be served. I definitely recommend all fans of the Mean Girls, Bring it On franchisees and even the whole family to watch the movie. I know I will be watching<3

*****Disclaimer*****
The following review is entirely my opinion. I encourage you to comment but please be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion that's completely ok. These reviews are not meant to be facts or endorsements. I am sharing my opinion and point of view when watching the video.



BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

                   Wow! guys I have so many emotions right now my mind can't even function. This is gonna be on replay for a long time, for all the haters out there. No kidding youtube is like literally crashing because it was slayed and blown away by the awesomeness. I cried guys that has to say something because I really NEVER cry over singers and all that jazz. #stoneheart  But T-Swift has manage to crack my heart yet AGAIN. #lovedit#truemusic #relatable

There needs to be a sequel ASAP!

Here's the link.

             First, I love the song in general, it's so relatable for me and everyone out there, because at some point in your life someone has been betrayed.

                 I like this revolution of music video turning into short scene movie. From Iggy Azazela and now Taylor.  Wow!I'm not disappointed. Hat's off to the director, producers, writers, makeup/fashion designers and even the actors themselves.

      This is definitely a of gem of artwork compacted in such a short space of time. There has to be a sequel!
Even though it was different scenes it flowed really well. I felt the ruthlessness at the beginning. 
I wonder if they had stunt doubled's or did they learn a few moves?

I like the fashion, it made me connect with female fierce. I know they could have been more conservative but I still like it. Tell me if Taylor was in a dress singing this, I definitely would have not connected as much. And neither would you. The outfit is a reflection of the individual.  And she is portrayed a sexy but deadly female character.
I'm so proud of you Taylor for stepping out of your comfort zone.

Kendrick Lamar did an okay job, I wasn't mad he was in the video because he added his own touch to it. However, I thought he could have get in character more like the rest of the actors. 

Plus, with the added sound effects I felt like, I was actually in the movie.

P.S The replay button will be murder because we got Bad Blood baby!


After the ball (2015) movie review

                                 *****Disclaimer*****


The following review is entirely my opinion. I encourage you to comment but please be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion that's completely ok. These reviews are not meant to be facts or endorsements. I am sharing my opinion and point of view when watching the film.


*********Spoilers Included *********

I like the cover poster, a bit of thought when into it with the sketches at the back. But the typical Cinderella story still has a strong presence in the movie with a bit of the Devil wears Prada.

According to IMDb, after a young fashion designer runs afoul of her corrupt stepmother and stepsisters, she dons a disguise to help save the family business for her father.


Released date: April 24, 2015
Director: Sean Grarrity
Genre: Art House & International, Comedy
Duration: 1 hr 42 mins
Rated: Unrated
Starring: Portia Doubleday, Marc- Andre Grondin, Chris North, Lauren Holly, Natalie Krill and Anna Hopkins

In terms of the movie now, in the beginning scenes of the fashion show, I think they recreated the stressful environment of behind the runway show ok but the makeup, hair and designs was really sold me. I made me buy in to the whole idea of runway time. The typical predictable beginning of girl meets world, world is mean. 

Stepsisters. The costuming was excellent. Here we have a clear example of the sisters, personalities portrayed through their outfit. It's bold, extremely embellished detailing, and vain.

However, needless to say the acting was on point. 
In terms of cinematography it was great not exceptional, but great. I like when during the different parts of the movie various sketches were displayed even the text message, it made me feel connected in someway.

The transformation.
 My hat goes off to the talented makeup artists who managed to convinced me, character was a male. Flawless.

Behold the power of makeup!
And yet again his outfits were popping, he sort of reminds me of Tim Gunn from Project Runway.

However, I don't like the message behind the whole movie, where you need to change in your gender in order to be heard and taking seriously. I sort of consider myself a feminist and the movie's message was not appealing to me at all.

And when she falls down the stairs like particular fairy tale princess, I thought the was completely irrelevant and unnecessary. Like really the entire movie would have carried on seamlessly without that interruption, all the hopes of making it similar to Cinderella. 
And for this reason, I give the movie 5 out of ten stars. Comment down below and tell me your thoughts.

Cinderella(2015) Trailer Review


                                 *****Disclaimer*****
The following review is entirely my opinion. I encourage you to comment but please be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion that's completely ok. These reviews are not meant to be facts or endorsements. I am sharing my opinion and point of view when watching the film.

Let me start by saying if you do not know who Cinderella is by now, I am kindly asking you to stop reading this review immediately and Google the name.
Now for those of you who are well aware since childhood who I'm referring to let us carry on.



Firstly, I love the background music it sets the tone for the whole trailer lovely.
Secondly, the costume designers were on point. To be quite honest,looking at the dress, that was one the reasons I watched the actually film yet AGAIN.
The starting scene of the women and Cinderella in the field gives the whole a carefree vibe which I enjoy.

However Cinderella's mom speech just made the whole thing extra sweet and cookie cutter. There is nothing wrong with that it's just in my opinion the story itself it already sweet and cookie cutter, I really think we needed EXTRA. Next, I like the effortless transition of Cinderella into a woman, taking a stroll with her father.
Furthermore, main points for the casting director and crew. 

Cate Blanchett did an excellent job as Stepmother, she sold it well.Overall good job by the actors. Yet again I loved the outfits for the movie.


And......



My emotions......

Image result for caption gif tumblr so pretty


I know this wasn't me only but whilst looking at this trailer Prince Charming's eyes just.......WOW,I don't think its legal to have eyes that blue.



Perfect choice for fairy Godmother, Helena Bonham Carter. To me I will always see her as the mad witch from Harry Potter and the wife of Sweeney Todd because those were roles she played and made great. 
But I liked her transition into a more cookie cutter role she added a touch of madness which I loved. However, I would like to continue seeing her in roles which I previously mentioned.


Plus, my favorite line in the trailer, ''They're all looking at you," Cinderella says.
Prince Charming replies," Believe me they're all looking at you."
I thought this was beautiful, not too over the top and not too sweet but just right.

Overall, Absolutely Magical!!!
