Everyday Thoughts about Life

Pacific Rim July 17, 2013

Oh my was this movie action packed.

My husband and I went to see it last night and got more than we expected.  Action, a bit of comedy and drama all rolled into one.  We really enjoyed it.

The cast made this movie even better.

  1. Charlie Hunnam (Raleigh Becket)~ a great actor and I love anything he does.  This is a totally different character for him.  Sons of Anarchy is probably on of the best shows.
  2. Idris Elba (Stacker Pentecost)~ I have seen him in a few movies and what I have seen I love.  The character is perfect for him. 
  3. Rinko Kikuchi (Mako Mori~ I don’t believe I have ever seen her in anything.  But boy is she good.  I look forward to seeing more of her work.
  4. Charlie Day (Dr. Newton Geiszler)~ Oh Lord he was hilarious.  Same high pitched voice as in every thing else he does.  AWESOME!!!!

I think this movie is so worth seeing.  I want to actually go see it again.  My hubby loved it as well.  He came home from work today saying he could not stop thinking about it all day.  Now that is saying something.



Soul Surfer movie July 12, 2011

I finally went and seen this movie.  Wowwwwww!!!!!!  What a spiritual and uplifting fact based movie.  If you have a chance to go see it,  DO!!!!!  When you get done watching it, sit back and think a while at how most of us have it amazingly good in this life but that we are the ones who make ourselves miserable.  Then take a look at this brave girl who had way harder struggles to deal with and she has made an inspiration of herself from here to afar.  I for one want to thank her for sharing her incredible story.

THOR 3D May 26, 2011

I absolutely LOVED it.  My husband and I went to see it on opening night and we were both extremely pleased with the movie every second.  The action was great, as well as the 3D looks.  I am so glad that there are so many Marvel Comic heroes that are coming to the big screen.  When you grow up watching them on TV and now they are on the comeback, how awesome is that.  Our children are now watching the same things we did, just in a different manner.

Natalie Portman ~ Looked amazing and did an outstanding job, as she always does.  She seemed to really get into the role and made you think it was real life.

Chris Hemsworth ~ This role was made for him all the way.  How could they have gotten anyone better, except for maybe his brother, Liam.  He also did an awesome job reprising the role of Thor.

Sir Anthony Hopkins ~ Well, not much to say except AMAZING!!!  I don’t think that I have ever been disappointed with any movie I have ever seen that he has done.  Again, perfect casting for Zeus.

I am definitely going to see this movie again and again.  When it comes out on video, I will be the first one in line.

Now, on to the next movie ~ The Green Lantern.  YEAH!!!!!


Rating Movies and Books March 23, 2011

Ok, so I am a huge movie fan and read a lot of books.  I love to go and see them or sit in the living room and watch any movie.  Now, whether it is good or not I still like to make sure if I start it, then I finish it.  When I am not working or watching something I am reading a book.  So, I thought since I am a fan that I would do my own ratings of them.  I always tend to go to the various search engines and see what they rate them at.  Some of the time I might agree with them and sometimes they are so completely wrong.  In my opinion.  But that is why I decided to do blogs on movies and books.  I am very open to anyone who has thoughts on what I blog about and am willing to have discussions about them also.  Please comment what you are feeling.  So, be ready for some great blogs coming your way.


Elizabeth Taylor Will be Missed

Oh, what a sad thing to wake up to.  I thought she was an outstanding actress and have seen almost all of her movies.  Such a tragedy but I am glad she is not suffering any longer.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all her friends and family.  God Bless then all.
