Fantastic Beasts and where to find them (Original Screenplay) |Book Review

DSC_0336.JPG

It is my first time reading something like this. my first time reading an Original Screenplay that was written by somebody as big as J.K Rowling. if you haven’t read my last Blog entry about “books turned movies that I haven’t read/seen” https://teenhabitat.com/2017/01/13/books-turned-to-movies-that-i-havent-seenread/ I have never read or watched any books or movies that was written by J.K Rowling, not that I don’t want it, I don’t know, I was more of a romantic comedy reader before. so you might be thinking that its dumb to read Fantastic beasts without reading harry potter series, well, I’m thinking you’re right too. lol. Fantastic Beasts has no relation to harry potter, but Voldemort’s name was mentioned quite a few times and his death too so that made me think of about what happened during harry potter series. haha. anyways, Back to the Review…

I have never doubted J.K Rowling’s works, I knew right from the moment I opened the box containing just this awesome book, she won’t fail me and yes, she never did. I only read this book for 2 days, you know when that happened that means I’m totally into the story. so just to give you heads up, to some who haven’t read the book yet, it’s not the usual book that we get from novels, they are scripts as if you are one of the writers who have to proofread it and published into a very beautifully hardbound covered book.  In my whole entire reading life, since Percy Jackson, I have never read such beautifully written story. as I was reading it, I felt like they do scavenger hunting, I don’t know why, clues after clues, until I caught myself acting as if I’m part of the story. WEIRD. I had fun, I’m totally looking forward to the sequel, if there is one, I’m hoping, fingers crossed. this book is a total must-read and a must-reread. hahaha xoxo

Movies and Books to Cry On

We all have Different Personalities. Some people can cry easily over little things, some have a cold-stone heart meaning it takes forever to make you cry, in my case, im in the middle part (if that make sense), It takes awhile before you can make me tear-up. But, this Movies and Books was a tear-jerker that made me felt sad next thing I know, im tearing my eyeballs out!!

MOVIES

ytht.pngTHE LAST SONG

This movie really made me cry like a baby! most especially the part when her dad died, everything made sense, everything just turned into something. I was tearing up to the fact that she used to hate her dad for not staying in the Family since the separation. it’s quite a bit unbelievable sometimes how movies can make you feel dumb for not knowing what to happen next.

THE LION KING

You’re a Liar if you say you didn’t atleast tear up in one of the scenes in this movie. As a Kid, watching this cartoon movie is fun and exciting, it is filled with animals in the jungle, you learn the different kinds of animals in their. But if you watch it as an Adult, the feelings and the experience is totally different, you realize the true essence and the true meaning of a fathers sacrifice for his kids and also the weird thing is the part when The King died to save his son and you started tearing up, that’s how you know you’re growing up. it’s crazy because this animals that we used to memorize their names when we were kids, are the animals who will teach us the meaning of Hakuna Matata as an Adult.

ghmMIRACLE IN CELL NO. 7

This one is a Korean Movie, and im telling you, I have never seen such kid who acts like that!! it was really one of the best foreign movies I have ever watched, the whole point of the movie touched my heart. Usually when we say Korean or Chinese movies, the first thing that pops up from our brain is “shaolin” or anything magical from ancient dynasty, but this one is different. Talk about Comedy, drama, love story, all together pact in one movie, geez, I don’t even know how I survived watching this movie without my heart saying “hey, mind going for a little break?”.

 

 

BOOKS

uiktyhLOOKING FOR ALASKA (JOHN GREEN)

After reading ‘The Fault in our Stars’ by the same author, I thought to myself, ‘this author might have other stories to impress me’, I googled, and found out about this book, I would admit, I am not impressed by the title, it is not the kind of catchy title, but I swear to all the angels, I felt something good about this book. I was reading it for a week and all my doubts and all my cons about it disappeared. On the better side, i Cried. yeap. you read it right, folks! i didn’t expect the way the events turned, and i don’t even know what to expect in the first place anyways. and i said to myself ‘john green proved you huh’.

A WALK TO REMEMBER (NICHOLAS SPARKS)

ujykfI can remember when this movie first came out. I can’t forget the soundtrack and some few important and memorable scenes. But when i read its book, (here we go again) i Cried! i didn’t cry watching the movie, i don’t know why, my cousins does everytime we watch it. maybe because books are different from movies, although they may have the same plot and the same point of the story but you know sometimes when moviemakers changes some little things. i cried when she walk in the isle on a wheelchair, she still did it even if she almost felt like dying. what can i say about this book? SPEECHLESS. i don’t blame myself if i didn’t do a book review of this awhile ago, it is hard to talk about something that hit you harder. Bookworms out there, im calling your name out, this is true, right??

 

yjeELEANOR AND PARK (RAINBOW ROWELL)

This one didn’t turned out fairly, but the story, AGAIN MADE ME CRY! if you have read the book review i made about this few years ago (which is not that clear, and i apologize for a very lack of sense) you would know how im so into the story, not just it, but the two people themselves. i felt like im in the story, im inside the book with them, i felt like  was definitely in the state where i would collapse everytime the Climax of the story happens. oh geez, i am so into this books, sometimes it feels so dangerous.

Women: Courage and Faith

As I was randomly scrolling down my facebook account the other night, I bumped into this Video of Emma Murphy. She was abused by her Husband and Apparently cheated on her not once, but Twice. I am not writing this article to rant about her situation or to talk about what if’s and not’s, I decided to turn up this whole idea because I am a Woman, there’s women around the world who have daughters, nieces, and the issue and cases of Violence on Women and Children is Spreading like crazy!

When we say Violence, it talks about physical and emotional abuse. Does women deserve this? why does men keeps on doing it to some women? if they aren’t happy with the way the relationship goes, why can’t they just leave? there are lots of questions in my mind roaming around, and I still keep on looking for answers but it seems like I can’t find any. Sometimes, I want to sit down and talk to the men who abused there women and just ask them why to answer the questions I have inside me, but it will never happen.

I feel bad knowing that also in a situation like Emma’s, it is not her that is just being hurt, they have kids, she have kids, a one-year-old kid may never understand but she/he can still see. do you know how it feels like to see your kid looking at you while your husband is hitting you? its worth a lot of Pain. if the Marriage is the first issue in the first place, why can’t just try to fix it? does sleeping with other women makes everything okay? if not, then why do you keep on doing it? you can’t have everything in life. the greediness and the selfishness of a person gives him the reason to make himself feel capable of doing anything, which is not what it should be.

Women are not weak. Women are not just a thing that you can use whenever you want. We have feelings, there will always be a woman behind every man, whether its your common law, your wife, your mother, your aunt or your grandma. Women are meant to be loved, so if you as a Man can’t do that, ask a kid, maybe they know better than you.

The Vow |Movie Review

dhgj.png

it is never too late to realize your worth in a relationship. Love lasts a Lifetime, it will never fades, the feeling will never go away, unless your heart desires to.

this kind of movies always leaves me speechless everytime!! the Love story itself really does amazes me, its not about the characters who played the role, but the love story, Just Wow. its the kind of story you wont even think it exist, it is phenomenal, different, and it fits the young and the adults.

Moving on to the characters, I couldn’t think of any word that would describe the best of how they portrayed every roles. But ofcourse, expect the extraordinary from Rachel Mcadams who have caught my heart since the movie “The Notebook”, yes, not the Mean Girls, and Channing Tatum, like seriously, that jaw? irresistible! Their acting, the scenes, perfect, I have seen everything that I have imagined before watching this movie, tho im like few years late, but its better that than never.

How does Blogging changed my Life?

hnfg.pngThey said, to be happy, it means so much effort and so much struggles, I didn’t. it only took me a Laptop and a Random thought to have it. I am happy by writing articles, I am glad that I get a lot of attention and criticizes about it. I know some part of me changed for better since I’ve decided to join Blogging, there may be Up’s and Down’s but everything is like a package deal already, it comes with everything. I have been doing Reviews almost every single movie that I watch and every single book that I read, and I never get tired of it, I like doing it and for me it is Pure Happiness.

MATURITY. I didn’t expect to get this trait thru writing articles. Everyday, you get to think single thing in life and you get the idea of writing about it, it’s not that simple, you have to be careful of your words that you use because you might hurt other people, you should not seek false statements, therefore you need proof, and also, stand to whatever you believe in. Maturity takes time to gain, so does Respect.

RESPONSIBILITY. when you are a blogger, whether you’re a professional or not, you still get responsibility. first of all, the Time Management. you always have to set up dates on when you are releasing the article, in my case, I have been trying to do it everyday, but with my other job, it wont work, so I have to think of something else that I know would work, and that is to do it every other day. it is you’re responsibility to check your stats, your analytics, and the medias that are associated to your blog.

THINK…A LOT. when you do Blogging, you always have to think straight about your topic, Everyday! and when I say topic, you have to think of something that would make sense, that is also to attract more readers. when I wasn’t blogging before, the only time I could think like this is during the exams week but now, I get to be responsible so I have to think about the articles every now and then or else i’ll lose the idea means I lose another article. you got to have your brain moving.

FRIENDS. personally, I would say this is the best part. yes, you get to meet friends. if you click the “discover” part, and type in anything that interests you, it’ll bring you to the articles that has been written around the world, and ofcourse you can talk to the admin (well it depends if they’d respond, most of the time they do). you get to know each other, and you get to share each others ideas, you never know, it might be a start for collaboration.

This are all based on experience, I am talking about how far have I gone since May 2013, the day I first sign up in wordpress. I would say it is so far so good. I enjoy the company that my followers gives to me, the support and the trust. I have learned so much, a bunch actually in just a span of 3 years, it is a pretty much a long years to think about but it seems like it was just last year when I had this blog.

Russell Bookstore Haul!!!

Untitled.png

it has been few days now since I went to Victoria,BC for Holidays and still I am still living the image of its Nostalgic scenery, but as I was strolling around its streets I bumped into this very cool 2-storey bookstore and i am just fascinated of what to get. like, have you ever been to a bookstore and you just have a lot of choices that you get confuse which ones to get.?? that’s what exactly I feel EVERY SINGLE TIME. but now i will unveil the books that i got from this cool bookstore.

2016-19-7--16-22-36

so i only got few because it sucks when you are travelling  and still you don’t want to buy too much stuff.

*LOVELY BONES (ALICE SEBOLD) i have watched the movie (and i heard they are going to remake it. Not so Sure! but if this is true I’m excited!) and i loved it! the reason why i got it, is because i just wanted to know more about the story, and you know how sometimes they change or remove some scenes in the movies,  i hate that actually, but its fine!

*HOUSE OF SPIRITS AND WHISPERS (ANNIE WILDER) this one is True Story and yes, it is a Horror story about a Haunted House and a family bought it and not knowing about the dark side of it, pretty much like conjuring and i am definitely excited to talk about this in one of my book reviews soon!!

*I LOVE YOU BETH COOPER (LARRY DOYLE) I just finished reading this one and i don’t want to do book review about it right now not until i watched the movie and compare them both, because i believe that it has been so long since the last time i did Movie Vs. Book Review so, yeah, that’s one of my Plans being revealed for my Blog. haha.

*THE ELEMENT ENCYCLOPEDIA OF GHOSTS AND HAUNTINGS (THERESA CHEUNG) Encyclopedias are as awesome as novels but lets just admit it, sometimes it gets boring, so i really don’t read this as often as i do with my novels but we learn with encyclopedias especially if its the interesting one like the one i bought. yeap. hauntings are my thing lately. 😉

P.S.

I’m excited to do a book reviews sooner with this stuff. but aside from reviews, i can do so much more that i have already planned and all you guys just need to do is keep up and probably standby.

Room |Book or Movie?

DSCN1612

I have no words to say about this book. it’s fascinating, its different and I just seriously don’t know what to say! the story goes along about the mom and son relationship, it is undeniably true that a mothers love is most especially the greatest gift she could give and this story made us realize that somehow all the best in this world is nothing once a mom’s love and care takes over.

SO? DO YOU THINK THE MOVIE DID A GREAT JO?

-who am I to say no! the kid in the movie did a great job, sometimes I wonder how did this kid was able to portray a character that is so different from what a usual kid would play? most especially the kid is one of the main character there, he is not just playing and have fun as a character, but he is there to play as a kid who doesn’t have any idea about the outside world and a kid who doesn’t know about anything aside from whatever is in the room where he was born and grew up to.

the casts definitely made it, the emotions that I have while reading the book are the same emotions I have while watching the movie. that means something, something positive!

 

 

P.S.

Love your Mom and be thankful for what she’d done, yes, even the smallest things!
