We are Family! Thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

(Via Wikipedia)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (2017)

Directed By James Gunn

My sister and I finally watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 in theaters this week and it was awesome. I love the douchey comments that Rocket and Peter made to each other, the dancing Baby Groot, and the touching family moments between Gamora and Nebula.

The guardians meet Peter Quill’s father, Ego and visit his home planet. Peter begins to accept his father, Ego, until he learns about Ego’s master plan: destroying the entire universe and creating a new one just for the two of them. Continue reading

Now You See Me 2 (2016)

Directed By Jon M. Chu

This is another movie I got to watch on HBO. I watched the first one back in college and I thought it was great. Now You See Me 2 was entertaining but it didn’t have that intensity and flair as the first one. Continue reading

Suicide Squad (2016)

Sing (2016)

In January, I watched Sing with my sister. I wasn’t going to watch it originally, but then I saw the dancing pigs on Facebook and it sold me. I watched it during the end of my winter break. Continue reading

The Edge of Seventeen (2016)

Directed By: Kelly Fremon Craig

This post should have been out the first week of December, but I was so busy with life that I didn’t get a chance until now to talk about The Edge of Seventeen.

I love this movie. It’s definitely a chick flick that you should watch with your favorite girls, which is what I did. Continue reading

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

Directed By: David Yates

On Thursday, my sister and I finally got to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them before they pulled it from theaters. We were planning to watch it during Thanksgiving break, but we both got too busy and didn’t have time. However, since it’s winter break, we finally got the chance to. Continue reading

Doctor Strange (2016)

Directed By: Scott Derrickson

Warning: Spoilers!

I watched Doctor Strange with my sister during Thanksgiving break. To be honest, it wasn’t on my to-watch list, but I watched it anyways because my sister was interested in it and she needed someone to go with. Although I initially wasn’t interested, I ended up liking Doctor Strange after watching the whole film. Continue reading

Woman of the Dunes (Movie, 1964)

Directed By: Hiroshi Teshigahara

Woman of the Dunes (Novel, 1962)  By Abe Kobo

This is a film that wouldn’t capture a majority of my readers’ interest, but I decided to write about it since it’s a movie that I have watched recently (for class purposes) and this blog has movie reviews.

Woman of the Dunes is a 1964 Japanese film based on Abe Kobo’s novel of the same name (1962). Abe Kobo wrote the screenplay for this film and it won the 1964 Cannes Film Festival for the Special Jury Prize. Continue reading

How to Be Single (2016)

Directed By: Christian Ditter

I wanted to watch this movie when it first came out in theaters but didn’t have time to watch. So when it came on HBO a couple days ago, I forced my sister to watch it with me. How To Be Single is the movie we 20-somethings and single people need in our lives.

Alice (Dakota Johnson) breaks up with her college boyfriend, Josh (Nicholas Braun) temporarily because she wants to be independent and experience what’s life outside a happy relationship. So she moves to New York City and becomes a paralegal.  She befriends her co-worker, Robin (Rebel Wilson) and the local bartender (Anders Holm) and experiences life as a young, independent adult.
