My review for Flowers In The Attic
My review for Petals On The Wind
My review for the film adaption of Flowers In The Attic, released in 2014


REVIEW:
The movie was a lot different from the book, right from the beginning. I'm not convinced it was such a good thing though. The book is so cleverly written, where the movie though it was okay didn't do the book justice.
I like the cast. I like the set and costume design. Even the cinematography was great. The story was changed though and that is what made the film just alright. Plus the movie was much more disturbing, and not in a good way as you might think. I generally go for disturbing. Not this time though.
I admit, I'm curious to see how the other books will be adapted. They did sign on for them all. Disturbing is what I like, so hopefully the next set of films can get back on track.


3/5

  1. In my experience, the movie is never as good as the book. Most times the story changes significantly, which is rarely a good thing.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Interesting to read your reviews on this series. I've been avoiding watching this new batch of films made since the ones that came out earlier which I found lacking.

But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

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…
