DVD Spotlight: 5th Wave
Four waves of increasingly deadly alien attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. From imdb.comThis movie was another time where I truly wanted to see this movie and was unable to due to the fact that I was not able to have time to see it.
This is more of the sci-fi drama with action involved, I like always started to read the book before I watched the movie. If you had no idea the 5th wave is from a book series from the author Rick Yancy. And in fact the last book in the series is slated to release tomorrow the 24th of May. I am so excited , I actually ended up buying the whole series. What drew me to this specifically is the loyalty and the closeness she has with her little brother. I just love a relationship like that , because I have one like that. My younger brothers mean the world to me , and I could relate to Cassie as she was on the run. Trying to get to her little brother before its too late. The movie is full of twists and turns and a bit of romance . Which gets to the core of human understanding and what happened to the world . I dont like to give too much away. To the point that I want to tell my readers , you should read the book before you watch the movie due to the fact that , the movie leaves out a lot . On how some characters met , different rescues and different things happening. Though you still will understand the meaning and the storyline I feel like you should get a better grip of understanding. Though there is not at the moment a 2nd movie in the works I welcome anyone to pick up the series and read. I love reading it! Though , I would not really recommend for younger kids I would definitely pick up a copy for the older kids in your family.
Thanks! Next time then.
