My thoughts,rating and overall movie experience:

Many thanks to Aunt Susan who treated us for this wonderful Christmas movie it's been quite part of the tradition in our family to watch and go to the movies every year well except for last year. But anyway, I got some ideas about the movie I managed to get a glimpse of some parts from the trailer and advertisements etc. it's been a couple of years since I actually watched the other versions so yeah truly looking forward watching them all unfold.

The Child Cosette is so adorable and absolutely perfect for the role then Amanda Seyfried is the perfect grown up match Cosette and Eddie Redmayne (Marius) he's so french they are the perfect couple in this movie ever! Their love triangle in which I feel so sorry for Samantha Barks (Éponine

The moment I saw that they cut off Anne's hair I know for sure that she's gonna win an award!
and she did a wonderful job! she sang her heart out,portrayed a vulnerable character,flexible in many ways.
Sacha Baron Cohen (Thénardier) and Helena Bonham Carter (Madame Thénardier) these two made me laugh a lot of times! Master of the house is one of my all time favorite number such a Cray cray couple.

Éponine, took number one with her ON MY OWN song (timeless piece ever!)
OMG! look at Samantha Barks's tiny waist :O I wish and would like mine's like that haha! I think that's the first one I noticed and the next would have to be is that she's quite a look a like of the one playing Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) in Once upon a time
I haven't heard or know Samantha until I googled her apparently she's been through a lot of broadway shows or so yeah! amazing voice and lovely too.

The last scene in the movie actually is truly a tear jerker I thought I'm the only one but then I heard quite a number of sniffles here and there so I'm relieved I'm not alone! haha! I'll give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars it made me cry especially towards the end I wouldn't even thought of it but the way the musical goes and spoke to my heart w:Ow I actually got a heart! haha! I would most definitely buy this in Blu-ray!

One Day (Movie)

Director: Lone Scherfig

Writers: David Nicholls (screenplay& book)

Genre: Drama,Romance,Contemporary
Minutes: 107
Release Date: August 19,2011
Story line: 
Emma and Dexter meet on the night of their university graduation. We see them every year on the anniversary of that date - July 15th. Emma is smart but success doesn't come quickly for her, whereas for Dexter, success and women come very easily. Through the years they grow apart as their lives take different directions and they meet other people. But as they grow apart from those other people and their lives start taking opposite directions again, Emma and Dexter find that they belong with each other.(more)

My thoughts,rating and overall movie experience:

5 out of 5 stars! CLASSIC!
This scene made me want to watch the movie in the first place and I do admit I cried a lot watching this film and no matter how many times I watched this.OMG! it's very faithful to the book. Anne Hathaway & Jim Sturgess their very existence is the perfect embodiment of Emma and Dex.

They're like my favorite fictional couple of all time! XD
I dunno what else to say about this I think I already said everything in my book review it's just so Perfect! because usually whenever they make a book to movie adaptation they change or revise some things even though the playwrite is the author but this movie oh no they totally made this truly a great match for every events.I like how they laid it out plain and simple with the dates so that people who haven't read the book would still know and of course for all of us to be reminded of oh so that was this year then that was last year etc.

I've been looking forward to this movie for a very long time and it was worth it!Good job and hands down to everyone who made this film possible.I would definitely recommend this to everyone and buy it in Blu-ray!^^,

Have you seen this?what are your thoughts about it? if so tell me your favorite parts,opinions etc. if you haven't also tell me why?are you planning to watch this anytime soon or what? make sure to tell me in the comments below ^^,

(more)

My Thoughts:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I read this in preparation for the upcoming movie I love the colored illustrations,very much enjoyed the scenery and Tolkien's world building.The First time I read the book I never imagined it to be like this I thought it would be much darker like when Bilbo met Smeagol in the cave.This was very enlightening experience for me.The Dwarves names/roll call is like a tongue twister and I can't remember who is who and what is what good thing for these illustrations a-ha! I'm so excited to watch them live in action and listen to their songs. ^_^

Happy Holidays!

Hi guys how's it goin? I hope you had a Merry Christmas! ^_^

Anyways, as always a lot of things happened & it was super awesome where do I begin?

Thy Mp3(audiobook) lists my friend gave me and the Saunder's book I bought I'm halfway in through it yey! eight more hours to burn (absorbing important facts ;))) and a couple of hundreds or so to read woohoo!

I dazzled up a couple of Christmas balls as a brilliant gift for kids they're like almost my nephews so yeah..I made some dragon balls & pokeballs XD
Materials used:
A dozen small christmas balls
Acrylic Paint (Black & white)
Green String
Red Duct(k?) tape
scotch tape

It took me a couple of coats of acrylic paint to make it thick also to make it stick real good.I used the scotch tape as a guide I put it all around the xmas ball so I won't have a lot of Ooopps then used the same rack to let them dry then viola.Handpainted all the way ^^, (you get it..I hope so)

I also watched this amazing youtube clip for additional inspiration & as a guide.
