Movie Review #21 The Great Gilly Hopkins


This film touches a very sensitive topic and that is the life of a foster child. Gilly is taken to multiple foster homes but she only wants to be with her mother. At first she was very spoiled and mean to he foster family but then as time started passing by she felt like that was her true home. And even though she is taken away from that foster home she still visits them since they helped her out of that shell that she closed herself in whenever she got to a new foster family. I think the director did an amazing job transmitting the message to the audience since he portrayed every emotion and situation perfectly for most people to understand.


Movie Review #20 War Horse

War-Horse.jpgJoey goes through a series of owners and we get emotionally involved every time he leaves one. From first owner, to a soldier’s cavalry, to two brother’s escape, to a little girl’s dream and so on. Most of its owners died but in the end he rejoins with his first owner who went to the war to find him. This war was one bloodshed of a war in the history of human kind which included the deaths of humans and animals such as the horses. Joey managed to push through many obstacles and defeated the odds to survive this war which thousands of other horses perished in. I enjoyed the cinematography and the beautiful shots from the different landscapes across Europe.

In this clip from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, it gives us one of the most important lectures in life. Yes we all have to work and we are always busy but we need to find and moments in our life that will give it purpose. As the clips says travelling is one of them, yes you can admire of the a place watching pictures of it from your house but you can save up money and actually go there and live life to the fullest. Fill it with experiences you thought you would never have and cherish them because when you die you wont take your money or material things with you, you will take all those memories and experiences you had when you were alive.

Movie Quote #20 Maleficient


Maleficent is about the story from the villain’s side. It shows us this beautiful woman who gets betrayed and turns evil. But from the heroes side she has always been evil or her reason to be evil is not justifiable. In some film however we can see that villains have a soft side and might turn tot he good guys and this film tells us that with she too can be good like she once was.

Movie Review #19 Spirited Away

spirited-away-1_0.jpgI believe Spirited Away is one of the finest hand drawn animated films due to its immense detail to every little thing in every frame of the film. If they are outside you will see the ocean and maybe some trees moving in the same directions, its the little things that count. For me personally I watched it as a kid and i was freaked out but now that I’ve grown i can see why people enjoy the film so much. Its story is simple yet entertain for anyone from any age to comprehend. Possibly the main shot of the inn they are staying where it shows the ocean and the fishes moving in the water, the way the water moves and the ripples the fishes leave when they move are very impressive. The voice acting was superb and if you look at its cast some of them are very well know voice actors of their own.
