IMDB Summary:

A scathing black comedy of embarrassment, RID OF ME charts the emotional breakdown and rebirth of a woman ripe for self-discovery.

 

 

I actually saw this several years ago on Netflix, and I absolutely loved it. I loved Meris, and how she was just trying to find herself after trying to be someone she just wasn’t for a man that she wasn’t meant to be with. It had a lot of funny moments and an even big WTF moment. I just wish that we had small candy stores like that here!

Movie: The BFG

Book by: Roald Dahl

Imdb Summary: A girl named Sophie encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because, unlike them, he refuses to eat children.

I have loved the other Roald Dahl movies that I have seen such as Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Witches, and James and the Giant Peach, so I am pretty excited and think this will definitely meet my expectations!

Motion Picture Monday: Book to Movie

Motion

What book or series would you want to be turned into a film?

 

Title: Blood of Eden series, Book 1: The Immortal Rules, Book 2: The Eternity Cure, and Book 3: The Forever Song

Author: Julie Kagawa

I haven’t found a whole lot of movies that have been turned from a book into a movie especially in the YA field that I have really loved.  There are a lot of other books I would like turned into movies, but I feel like the film industry wouldn’t get it right.

I feel like The Immortal Rules would do really well on screen especially if they would take it down a darker path and try not to focus the whole movie on the romance.  Yes there is a romance, and it is absolutely perfect, but there are way more to these books.  These are vampire books that were done right and weren’t cheesy at all.

Also the main character Allison Sekemoto is Asian, so can we also keep it that way?  Since Hollywood has been casting white actresses in Asian roles.

Goodreads Summary:

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten. Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them—the vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself dies and becomes one of the monsters.

Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide what and who is worth dying for… again.

Enter Julie Kagawa’s dark and twisted world as an unforgettable journey begins.

Motion Picture Monday: Perfect Soundtrack Song

Motion

Out of all the movies out in the world today which one has the perfect soundtrack song, and what is that song?

For me there are so many good movies out there, and I notice a lot have terrible soundtrack songs that I wish I could have just put the soundtracks together myself (I am looking at you Fifty Shades of Grey).

Movie: The Crow (1994)

Imdb Summary: A man brutally murdered comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder.

Everything about it goes absolutely perfect with the movie whether it is the tone, the dark sounds, the emotion, or the instruments.

The crow is a dark movie with a lot of action, and it needed this song for that soundtrack!
