Review:
I haven't read the book, and that is unusual for me. I do prefer to do that before watching the adaption, but when given an opportunity....
Usual the book is better for me than the film. But after seeing this I have to wonder what is better than amaze-balls? Yeah, it would be tough to beat. This film, from the cinematography, the story, the characters, the set and costume designs, just everything really was done so well. It really came alive.
It was such a heartbreaking time. I cried more than a couple times while watching. Still, this movie was told in a way that you needed those incredibly sad moments.
The little girl, her story is one that will stay with me for a long time. Fiction or not. Some little girl a really long time ago lived a story much like hers I'd bet. Actually, probably a lot of little girls. That connection is what I will remember.
Bring tissues folks, but definitely see this one.

5/5

  2. I couldn't make my way through the book. Part of it was other commitments getting in the way, but the beginning is very odd since it's narrated by death. I would still like to get back to it one day soon.

  8. I haven't read the book, but I saw the movie in the theater and loved it. I lived in Europe for a few summers and just can't imagine life like that.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
