Review Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2

The final installment of the Twilight Saga is here. It was with excitement and sadness I went to see it knowing that, "it's over" but still HOW COOL! The story picks up where the last left off with an awesome and beautiful segue from one to the other. I will say for the movie that I wish it had followed more with the book. I would liked to have seen jasper following Bella around and his powers being explained more. But I'm very Jaspercentric. I loved when Bella "took care of business" with Jacob for imprinting on Renesmee. I loved the arm wrestling scene but I really missed the part where Nessie laughs. That would have been so cool. In all honesty I would have liked to have seen more of the book in the movie but the ending scenes rock and rock hard! 5 stars!

Silent Hill Revelation

In true horror fashion Silent Hill Revelation pulls you in and takes you on an  exciting creeptastic journey. I loved the creature creations and the performances of the main characters. The story itself could be predictable at times but that didn't take away from the whole effect of the movie! I especially liked the effects in the movie they were amazingly well done. My favorite part was the carousel scene. Totally awesome. Usually sequels suck but this story took on a life of it's own. As long as they use the amazing storytelling and scriptwriting I would see every single one! I give it 4 stars!

Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan

I have a new addiction, I must tell you it's an awesome show called Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan. In this BBC program he visits all the corners of the globe in search of a certain creature but he always ends up finding fantastic and interesting animals along the way. The reason I love this show so much is that you can see Dom's deep respect and love for the animal kingdom in the way he talks about the animals and the way he handles them. He is so well versed on all the animals he encounters and the way he speaks never seems scripted. More than that he's well versed on the countries he visits and has a working knowledge of everything he airs. He's a very intelligent man who has made an awesome awesome show. It's been a long time since I've seen a show about animals that I liked but this is one I would recommend to any age group. It's such an entertaining and enriching show that I hope is aired for years and years to come. I wish I could give infinity stars to this show.....wait it's MY blog I can! Kudos Dom, I love this show absolutely completely fully and would watch it over and over again!

Robot and Frank

There is nothing that I can say but that I absolutely loved this movie. The actor playing Frank was awesome as a grumpy old man who turned out to be a crook but had an awesome way of covering it. His reaction to getting his robot caretaker was priceless and then the way their relationship grew by Frank thinking that he was manipulating the robot and the robot thinking he was manipulating Frank was awesome. It really took a look at the technological age we are getting into. I laughed frequently during this movie. It was touching and really had a good heart to it. I give kudos to the directors actors and writers of this movie. It wasn't hokey it was just a great watch and I would definitely add this to my personal list of favorites that I could watch over and over again. This movie gets five plus plus plus stars from me!


I recently watched a British Suspense/Drama called Citadel. The movie begins with a guy and his pregnant girlfriend in the hallway of an apartment building. The woman is left standing while he takes something to their car. When he gets back inside the elevator is not working. He shuts the door manually and then goes upstairs to find his girlfriend being attacked by 3 children. Wouldn't you know it the elevator door doesn't open. She goes to the hospital and he is handed their baby. We find out later she's alive but a vegetable. Meanwhile the hero of the movie is left to raise their baby daughter alone with a terrible case of agoraphobia and a healthy fear of the children that seem to follow him around. It was very hard to follow in general and seemed like it was more about the man's agoraphobia than anything else. Even when it seemed to be getting good it wasn't. I would give this movie 2 1/2 stars for effort.
