A Wrinkle in Time

It had been years since I read Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. Maybe late twenties or closer to mid twenties. Hard to say.  It wasn’t my first time. I did read it as a kid. It’s the first book in a series. After re-reading it, I might eventually continue on with the books. First, I’ll have to tackle the other books on my ever growing list. Anyways, back to Wrinkle in Time. I did enjoy reading it again. I finished it pretty much in the morning and afternoon. There had been so much I had forgotten. As I was reading it, I remembered some and had forgotten some. Would I say the book was better than the movie? In some cases, yes. Both in this case. I like both in their own way.

Now to the movie. When I first heard Chris Pine was in it. I won’t lie, excitement hit. It is Chris Pine after all. Beard and all, you gotta love him.

We meet Meg, Calvin, and Charles Wallace. They go on a mission to find Meg and Charles Wallace’s father. The three go along with the three witches; Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which. Although, I don’t think in the movie they were called witches. Where in the book they are called witches. The six of them travel through a tesseract. Think of it as a wrinkle in time. The tesseract is a dimension that makes time travel go a lot easier. I won’t get too much into it, because I don’t want to spoil the book or the movie. As they look for Mr. Murry, they go on an adventure. Not the safest adventure, but it’s definitely something the three won’t forget.

I did find the ending went pretty quick. I know they can’t do every scene in the book, but I kind of wish they had shown more of Aunt Beast. I had pictured her in a certain way. I had looked forward to seeing how they visualized  her. We had a second to see her. She looked like a jellyfish in that quick second. Not how I pictured her. I always pictured her a cross between Big Foot and an octopus.

This movie though I think was done at the right time. I remember it being done in the early 2000’s. But, with today’s graphics. They did so much more. This is one of those movies were computer graphics can come in handy.

Hope to see it one more time before it leaves the theater.

As I got older, my interest for Winnie the Pooh went away. I couldn’t see why others liked Pooh, or even Piglet..for example.

Lately though, I’ve become interested in re-reading Winnie the Pooh. Is it my tastes that are changing? Or, is it the child in me thats hiding that wants to rediscover Winnie the Pooh?

Check out the teaser for Christopher Robin.

Library Haul ~ 8/19/17

I might have gone a little crazy today. I’ve been a fan of the Star Wars movies for years and I mean years. But, I feel like I haven’t been a true fan lately because I have so many books to catch up on. So anything Star Wars I can get my hands on? I’m all for it. Even the junior books. Hey, I managed to get one of them done already.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get Logan. I’ve been up in the air about that. Not sure why. I didn’t have interest in it when it was in the theaters. After some deep thought and my arm starting to hurt from the books. I decided to go for it.

Before I Fall, I also thought about. I usually read the book first before I see the movie. So depending on my schedule. I might try to read it this week. Or, I’ll just have to watch the movie first.

I don’t even remember much of the book. I can’t wait to see this though. I’m going to have to read the book before I see it though to refresh my memory. I’m hoping as I read it, the story will come back to me. If not, I can try to figure out who the killer is. As if I’m reading it for the first time.

Anyways, here is the trailer.

The Last Jedi

So I might have fangirled a little when I saw the trailer. star-wars-the-last-jedi-poster It was bad enough I couldn’t watch it because I was at work. I’m not ashamed. I told a co-worker, I was super excited. As I was walking out of work today, my mind was focused on The Last Jedi. A co-worker and I watched it in the parking lot. I may or may not have already watched it a couple times. I’ll be analyzing it soon, I’m sure.  Well, in case you haven’t seen it. Or, just want to discuss it.  Here is the trailer.
