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…

Fate of the Furious , Movie Review and Thoughts

Image
"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 movie brought it and a whole lot more. He was cheering and excited for all the characters ! Fast and the Furious gang was recently given the generation award at the MTV movie and TV awards. 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?

Hacksaw Ridge : -Rated R 
This is a slightly …

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.

50 Shades Darker : Movie Review

Image
I want to make this clear , completely clear , I am christian and I am not perfect. Sometimes you need an escape and then sometimes you just need to forget things. Yes, I know and have heard of all the talks , how horrible this movie is , the perversion that all Christians fall for.  Now to address the "domestic" violence, these are two consenting adults. While some survivors admit that yes this is a form of mental abuse. Which I can agree on with somewhat of a level. I do have to admit , I am a survivor and no my ex was no christian grey. But he upped the control and I allowed it. There is a form of control that I do have to admit I will allow but he went a bit too far. I digress this post is something that I wasn't going to get on my soapbox on . This is a movie review.. .. Lets get on with it.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her. from:imdb.com rated R I had to fight myself to watch …

Lego Batman Movie Review:

Image
Well this Review is For all the Families out there , Wondering about the New Batman Flick . And wondering if it is up to par with the rest of the Lego movies. But do not fear! I am here to give you a complete review from a kid and a "guardian " spotlight.
What is Lego batman about?
Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.from imdb.com rated PG
This comes from the creators of the Lego movie and I can truly say this movie is for the kids and the kids at heart. IT is chalk full of corny jokes some adult and some that are a bit over done. I cannot say that the adults will have a wonderful time , but I know that the kids do, and I can truly say it is something that you can take the whole family too without much worry if there is going to be something you dont want them to see. Which is fairly simple at the same time , be prepared for some cornyness and some laughter it should be a good time for all. …

XXX the return of Xander Cage , Movie Review and Thoughts

Image
Xander Cage is left for dead after an incident, though he secretly returns to action for a new, tough assignment with his handler Augustus Gibbons. rated : PG-13 from imdb.com
So to be honest I am not much of a fan of these movies but at the same time I do love a good action flick.
I took my usual movie buddy with me to watch this , and I have to say I was not disappointed. The action was wonderful but to be honest the movie fell kinda flat for me. I really liked certain actors and there was some funny one liners but honestly wasnt my usual choice but none the less made for a wonderful action flick to watch on a good weekend. 
I dont want to give too much anyway to those fans who love this series. But I think that those who are true fans will be pleasantly surprised. a Short but worthy review 
I was not paid for my words this movie review is on my own accord. Thank you

Happy 365 Planner Review and Thoughts

Image
Just recently , I have gotten into the planner craze  I am not sure if any one knew that there was one exactly . But I wanted to discuss my favorite brand of planner , there are soo many out there and so many choices that can go so many ways . But my brand is Called Happy Planner 365 , from the craft company Mambi. I have now since wanting to write this post have two planners in my possession. I own and bought a fitness kit since I am trying so hard to lose weight it is classic planner size. And recently a trip to another Store , I added a small mini planner , same brand but normal features. I love both , And have bought a lot! One of my huge goals for the semester and this year is to keep track of all the items and things I need to do!






I have a lot of supplies now , and going strong , in keeping track of most of the things that I have to do. I love these planners and the flexibility that they have when it comes to planning and saving memories. I love my fitness planner , motioning m…

The Garden CD and Giveaway Kari Jobe

Image
Well Blogging world it has been forever , but now I am back with another wonderful review and giveaway! So please share with all Your friends and Family that You know.  Kari Jobe is one of the top female worship performers in christian music . From her last album called Majestic , and her top hits coming from the album which include Forever , and I am not alone . She uses music as a form of self reflection and inspiration from life's hardships and joys. From music for church , and music for personal refection you will find a song that you love.  I personally have been listing to my personal copy that was given to me by the company , and on spotify while I am at work. This is a beautiful CD with wonderful worship songs and others that speak on a more personal level. I believe my favorite since I have heard it so much is Here as in Heaven , which is duo with Cody Carnes. That song is played during Sunday services, and during the week during other church services. Such a beautiful so…

Underworld Blood Wars: Movie Review and Thoughts

Image
Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) fights to end the eternal war between the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her.From imdb.com rated R For Fans of the Underworld series comes another chapter in the Saga of Selene the death dealer who has been betrayed too many times I think I have lost count. Now if you are unfamiliar to the underworld series , I would suggest catching up on the series and movies that have already aired. If you wish to be surprised well that works as well , but you might be slightly lost when it comes down to what is truly going on in the story. Let me as well add to the story , the end of this movie still does not bring closure so there is possibility for more movies.  But yet they may still leave us hanging in the balance of what is really going on. A lot of people mostly critics have already slammed this movie, poor acting , and a slightly shakey storyline. In going off that , if you do not like vampire lore, or slightly interested in v…

My Latest TV obsessions:

Image
I am back post haste from my blogging two week break , though my numbers have suffered . I am back with new reviews and more of my life. So are you ready? Here we go! I wanted to bring you my latest TV obsessions. Now dont get me wrong , I love to watch TV at the same time I like to leave room for other activities. Now Some shows you may have heard of while others you have not. I love action , suspense and a bit of romance. It has to grab my attention in order to truly keep me watching. 
Matt Murdock, with his other senses superhumanly enhanced, fights crime as a blind lawyer by day, and vigilante by night.-from imdb.com Daredevil , is on Netflix to those who remember how Ben A's Portrayal left comic book fans angry and the movie left somewhat of a hole in wondering what happened to all the characters. Now played by Charlie Cox , daredevil has a new face and new standards. This show though going into it I was bored over winter break and I thought I would give it a try since I had …

Assassins Creed. Movie Review:

Image
When Callum Lynch explores the memories of his ancestor Aguilar and gains the skills of a Master Assassin, he discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society. rated PG-13 from. imdb.com
We work in the dark to serve the light .. we are assassins.. ~assassins creed


Now this movie is a bit different than what I usually watch but honestly if you knew me more personally you would know that this is right up my alley. This is one of those movies despite the horrible ratings that other movies that were based on video games in the past have received. This is one of those movies , and what has been learned from in the past. Were based on the game at the same they did not try to base this movie on a character from the game rather base it on the theme and world from the game. Though there is something slightly different from the game in the movie now. The annimus , hopefully I spelled that right is different than the game. The annimus is a device that is used in the game to tap within …

DVD: Spotlight "Storks"

Image
Storks have moved on from delivering babies to packages. But when an order for a baby appears, the best delivery stork must scramble to fix the error by delivering the baby. rated PG  from imdb.com This cute story follows an unlikely adventure of two unlikely friends made fast. I decided to pick up this movie because I needed something to watch over the holiday weekend. My family had expressed wishes on wanting to see it as well so I thought why not? Storks is now on DVD and blue-ray and digital.  Let me get back to the story , when first watching it I was not that much interested I find it being very rare that I actually watch kids movies these days. Most of the time I watch my usual movies preferences but this truly surprised me. This movie truly has some heart to the story , I can admit being an only child for most of my childhood. I yearned for a baby sister , well.. I got the quite opposite I got two brothers! But I digress they are apart of my life and hold me together I love my b…

Semi Annual and After Christmas Sales!!!

Image
These are something to behold , Christmas has now been over for a couple of weeks now. And the semi annual sales and after Christmas sales are now in full swing!
A lot of people hate braving the lines and getting up early but I can honestly tell you I live for it!! I love these sales and they can stretch my Christmas money out!
We usually hit up Walmart first for anything, that we may need and I usually stick to my usual guide lines. I do not rush and buy wrapping paper there is a ton! and it will still be there! Certain Christmas items will still be there as well. You have to see the bigger picture. What does go first are ... The gift sets ! these are hot ticket items at 50% off the retail value and they go quick. I usually tend to stick to the items that I know I will use . What did surprise me this year was Walmart well the local one here , they waited to reduce a certain gifts until later. This sorta irked me still because I get a lot out of what I want to buy.
What I did end up …

Beginners Bible Review : And Giveaway!

Image
( I was given a copy to review and look over as compensation for my review and words on the book every word is mine)
This beautiful Kids bible is wonderful , and I was given a copy to review. When I was younger I loved going to bed , and my mother would read me stories. Sometimes from the bible and some time from books that I had gotten from the library. We would cuddle up in my bed and she would read. This was a tradition in our household , and if I am not mistaken , I was read to from this very bible. So this has a special place in my heart. The stories are put in a very short and clear and easy to understand for readers that are starting to read. The bible is of course hardcover . With the usual paper pages so I would not usually recommend this to younger kids. These are usually more geared towards the kindergarten age and above.
I read through some of the stories the illustrations are beautiful. This truly is one of those bibles that would make a wonderful gift for those readers …
