Wonder Woman Movie Review!

Image
Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny. from imdb.com rated PG-13

First of all this is the top movie at the box office right now and for good reason. This is a wonderful movie, not just for women but for everyone young and old! Over the opening weekend , pictures flooded in with photos of kids especially young girls in awe of Diana. Seeing this woman on screen strong, powerful but yet had the emotions of a woman. Shows us that we as women and many others are able to show our strengths. There are so many scenes that I can talk about , the young Diana looking at the older amazon's trying to practice with them. The delight over ice cream that she never had tasted. The feeling of love , and the feeling of loss. I loved every single aspect of this movie. There is so much I could speak a…

"When a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of terrorism and a betrayal of those closest to him, the crew face trials that will test them as never before." -rated PG-13 from imbd.com 

This is one of those movies that you will be wanting to see over and over again if you are a fan of the series. As Always I took my official car guy. My movie buddy as a treat to see this movie , he owns all 7 movies . He loves to collect all the cars in his dream "car collection" . We were not disapointed!

This was a wonderful and outstanding award given to a series that has fans of all ages! With the chance , to see it twice now. It does not disappoint , Im not going to make this a lengthy review.  
Nor im I going to ruin the movie for those who have not seen it yet. But as the story l…

Snatched Movie Review

Image
When her boyfriend dumps her before their exotic vacation, a young woman persuades her ultra-cautious mother to travel with her to paradise, with unexpected results. -Rated R from imbd.com 

When I saw that this movie was coming out I was honestly curious. It looked like fun it looked like one of those movies that would surprise you. So in much fashion during mother's day weekend , I took my mother to see this movie. So on mothers day , we had a wonderful lunch at one of our favorite restaurants and then saw the movie afterwards. 
So we buy our tickets and walk inside , well the crowd for this movie was slightly different there was actually mother's and other family watching as well. Well here is the verdict without spoiling too much of the movie. I loved it , so many funny moments and so many touching and laugh out loud moments between a mother and a daughter I loved it . And I can admit though my mother and me tend to have different forms of humor . She seemed to enjoy it as we…

Beauty and The Beast : Movie Review .

Image
I was Just so giddy when they announced this movie , I often feel as if I could relate to belle in some sort of way. Feeling like the odd girl out in my town, I often can know how hard it is sometimes to truly fit in. With this comes a sense of wonder and longing to be outside and travels away from the small town that I call home . Or in belle's case wanting to know and see whats beyond and travel beyond her tiny village. So, yes I am 25 years old , but I truly felt like I was 5 years old again . The original Disney classic came out in 1991 , just about the year I was born. But as a child , I discovered it per usual , seeing it on VHS tape.  I loved the fact that belle loved to read books and she adored libraries . I did actually "meet" her when I went to the magic kingdom one Sumner and she was overjoyed to know that I loved books. Asked me where I got mine and everything let me as well say I felt like I was five again. Let us get back to the movie shall we?

My Thoughts: In this season

Image
I guess I wanted to share my thoughts with all my readers as to the facts , everyone is gearing up for Easter. I can honestly say in my churches , time it is one of those holiday's that everyone comes out , in their Easter best . They may not have been to church all year but Easter is something that you will not miss. To be honest I am not here to criticize anyone, just noting things and my thoughts.
I use this time before Easter to express , how in wonder I am with God in this season. He has shown me and taught me a few lessons that I will not forget.
How to love , how to forgive , you cannot get everything at once. Patience with myself , learning from others. Time and effort on things , the list goes on and on and I dont think I have enough time to discuss it all. We live in a time where being a christian means you believe in fairy tales and things nor items that do not exist. While this is something , I do pray that those who believe do not loose hope. We are in a revival seas…

DVD Spotlight : Hacksaw Ridge , and Max Steel

Image
This week I am bringing you again a DVD spotlight , and reviews. As always , I did not receive any compensation for watching these movies.
Now lets get down to business. Let me note , I am going to keep these short , as to not spoil as much of the movie .
Max Steel- Rated PG-13 
This one was challenging for the start , it started off way slow. Boy discovers that he emits some power and then tries out to find out why. He discovers a , small robot like alien called steel . Steel tells him about his father , and how he was sent to help and protect him. Did I mention this is a toy? and a tv series? Somehow I am not sure if its still running or not. But I digress , this movie started out sloww. . . I was almost to the point I was going to take the dvd out and watch something else. But I can honestly say steel , the alien saved it for me. So I would recommend for 6th grade kids and up. Nothing too scary , but superheros are always cool arent they?

Easter For Older Kids and Teenagers Ideas

Image
What do you do when , your child no longer a child but a teenager and isn't into all the Easter basket stuff? Or not into the usual candy and eggs stuff? Easter is sometimes hard because you dont know what to get them. You want to make sure that your kids are taken care of while enjoying the holiday. I  dont think you should overthink the perfect gift for Easter.  The next few ideas, I will share with you if you are looking for the perfect gift , or basket for your teens.
First I would honestly ditch the basket , with older kids this would be just junk to them . They do not need it , for girls I would go for a purse they may have been eyeing or a pretty bag. Boys I would use a cap brand new , a popcorn bucket to use . Something that can hold items but they can use. As for items , with girls there is so much you can give them.
