Movie Monday: Glass – it could have been better! #MovieMonday #MovieReview #Glass #Bloggers

Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

This week I went to the movies to watch the latest release.

Glass

This week Glass came to theathers and I was so excited about this movie. It is continuation to Unbreakable and Split.
Unbreakable I haven’t watched, but Split I really, really liked, so it made me happy to see all the characters James McAvoy pictured again.

When Split was a new movie I featured it in one of my Movie Monday editions, and got under fire for some things I said. If you want you can read my post here (and attack me some more).

With sad words I have to admit that I didn’t like Glass. I don’t even think it was the hype thing this time, it is the fact that I was bored most of the time, there was almost no action until the very end, no victims in a way I hoped there would be, and the whole story in my eyes was kind of stupid.

The whole picture reminded me of bad version of X-men, with small amount of characters.

It got to the point where I felt bad for asking my friend to go with me to the movie theather, because it was that bad. But she said she liked the movie, so there is at least a hope that others will like it.

If you’re curious about seeing this film I suggest you to wait until it comes out on Blu-Ray or becomes available for streaming on HBO or Netflix.

Three Short Book Reviews: The Unexpected Everything, The Nearly-Weds and Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

Recently, my good Goodreads friend and a blogger, Lola from Hit or Miss Books , gave short reviews to multiple book in the same post. You can read it here.

I really liked that idea and because of Lola I got an inspiration to do similar thing.

I decided to post three short reviews for book I read but didn’t feel like writing full lenght reviews about them.

 

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

the unexpected everything

The Unexpected Everything was a really fun summery read. It follows the story of Andie who is a politician’s daughter. Because of the scandal behind her father’s name, her summer plans changed and she finds herself a job as a dog walker.
Along the way, she meets a cute guy and you can  all guess where the story goes from there…

The story also focuses on friendship and how, with time, we can just grow apart.
With some cute scenes, swoony moments and some predictble situations handled in an unimaginable way, this book is one that should be on your tbr list for this summer.
I highly, highly recommend it to every ya contemporary lover.

Who could say no to this adorable cover anyway?

The Nearly-Weds by Jane Costello

the nearly weds I had some fun time reading this book.

The story takes place in Boston where our main character Zoe goes as an English Babysit.

If you didn’t know, this book is a winner of Romantic Novelists’ Association Romantic Comedy Award.
That being said, I don’t think I have to tell you it is full of funny situations and toughts.

Zoe was a great narrator and I think it would be awesome if there was movie based on this book.
Who knows, maybe one day we’ll have a chance to see it.

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll

alisa I had the strangest dream.
I dreamed I found myself in Wonderland, went there trough the looking glass, but while I was there, I couldn’t remember what Wonderland looked like.

After I woke up, I decided it was the best time for me to finally read this book and find my answers.

When I was growing up, I liked watching Trough the Looking Glass animated movie better then Alice in Wonderland, even if it wasn’t Disney’s.

Now when I was reading it, some pictures from that movie came to my mind, I was reminiscing about some scenes I complitely forgot about.

What took me by surprise was how I knew some quotes even though I couldn’t have know them from that very movie.

Also, I noticed how some characters that weren’t in the first book, but were in Disney’s movie for the first time showed up here, in Trough the Looking Glass.

When I look at them only as books, I can’t say I’m sure which story I like better.
I think this one made me smile more often, even if I think that Alice in Wonderland has better quotes in it.
