There have been so many movies recently that I've wanted to watch. And because I'm me, I've only seen about a quarter of them. But I thought mini reviews were in order, because why not?


Movies I have Seen Recently:

  • The Great Gatsby

Love, love, love, love, love this movie. I mean, I think that there's a few things I'd change but overall I'm really happy with how it turned out. I think that Baz Luhrrman definitely translated the book in a way in which the younger generations will relate and enjoy. I know that some people completely abhor it, but I think it was done wonderfully.

I mean, the 20's were the years of excess and frivolity. So even if the party scenes were a little over the top, I get the feeling that that's exactly how the people would've felt the parties were like. It made me want to fall in love with the book all over again, and ahhhh. So much love.


  • The Way, Way Back
One of my new favourite movies. It's such a well done, quirky depiction of the good ol' coming-of-age story.


  • Beautiful Creatures
This was surprisingly good. I didn't expect it to be as good as it was. It was funny and when I was watching it, my brother got curious and came and watched it with me. He really liked it too. I think that both the actors and the script was incredibly strong and well-done.


  • The Reluctant Fundamentalist
This is a heavy watch (and I mean that in the best sense). I found it provocative and it truly made you think afterwards. I'm a huge fan of movies that make you want to think afterwards.


Movies I Want to See:
  • Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (x)
  • Despicable Me 2 (x)
  • City of Bones (x)
  • Catching Fire (x)
  • Saving Mr Banks (x)
  • Blackfish (x)
  • Monsters University (x(I did my waiting! Twelve years of it! In Azkaban!)
  • Stuck in Love (x)
