But while Sadie is thrilled by James' proposal, she has one hang-up: James has yet to meet her family, and she knows her father would be upset if they married without getting his blessing first.

    Peter Pan

    Peter Pan

    You all have seen Peter Pan cartoon in childhood, have not you? Well, when I watched it, I was about 10 to 12 years old. As I remember now, I was very impressed with the guy who wanted to stay a child for the rest of his life. I remember I had a concern regarding the topic. For a couple of days, I was even thinking about what is so bad about growing up? You will be independent, have your own money, your own life and can do everything you want. It does not seem to be that bad and literally, I did not get the idea of staying kid for the rest of their life to be honest. Now as I have grown up, it started to clear up and perhaps Peter was not wrong about his will.

    'Survivor: Island of the Idols' Episode 12

    'Survivor: Island of the Idols' Episode 12

    Wow! What a great episode of Survivor tonight! First off, nice move taking out Karishma. Could've easily been Noura, but that's ok. Noura seems likely to be next to go by most people anyway considering how Dean destroyed her game. But, as revenge, Noura hid his shoes on top of the flag to signify that he could be next to go. The next morning, an idol hunt began. Dean and Elaine got up to search, knowing that they were big targets, possibly on their way out without the idol. But, Janet & Tommy also went looking and then, it happened. Janet found the idol, nice job Janet! So now, she & Tommy are in possession of it. But, Dean & Elaine caught them, so now they know that Janet has the idol.

    What I Got From Watching 'Joker'

    What I Got From Watching 'Joker'

    Now that the hype has died down and a good majority of people have seen this movie I thought I'd talk about the Joker flick. After watching Joker I felt the intention of the movie was to not only provide me the viewer with solid entertainment. It was also meant to make the viewer look at the type of person they are when they're around others. One of the few things that bothered me about the movie wasn't even in the movie. It was people saying they understand where Arthur was coming from, or they could relate to him. Or they understand why he did what he did when he was spiraling out of control. It seems like little to none of those comments online were people saying we've got to treat each other better. Yes because we might potentially send a fellow human being off the edge of sanity, but also because it's just the right thing to do. Every Gothamite felt like they were in their own bubble concentrating on their own world and own problems. The lady on the bus who wanted Arthur to stop making her kid laugh, to Arthur's coworkers. They all reminded me of people in the city I live in (Seattle). Very few greet you happily or strike a genuine conversation with a stranger, and if they do they're most likely from out of town.

    Mimo Reviews: 'Frozen 2' (2019)

    Mimo Reviews: 'Frozen 2' (2019)

    Those of you who've read my review of Frozen from a few years back will know that I initially avoided seeing it due to feeling fatigued from overexposure to "Let It Go" and all the merchandise Arendelle could buy.

    'Call Me by Your Name': A Film Review

    Call Me by Your Name (2017), directed by Luca Guadagnino, is a beautifully crafted piece of cinema. The film’s glorious cinematography, transportive musical score, profound screenplay and strong performances set the story of a budding romance apart from all others.

    War of the Worlds: Where Did it All Go Wrong?

    War of the Worlds: Where Did it All Go Wrong?

    Ever since a very young age I’ve been obsessed with War of the Worlds. I was aware of and enjoyed the campy 50’s analogy of nuclear war but it wasn’t until I watched a school performance of Jeff Wayne’s seminal adaption (complete with Tripod paintings attached to wheeled netball nets and Martians emerging from silver sprayed wheelie bins with tinfoil) that it really piqued my adolescent imagination. It was an ambitious production for a state secondary school to attempt but I remember vividly going home with my head spinning. The thought of an Anglo-centric invasion, in Edwardian England, both filled me with excitement and tantalising terror.

    'Promare' Review

    'Promare' Review

    To talk about Promare, the new anime film from Studio Trigger (makers of Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, etc.) I have to start at Anime NYC. I went to Anime NYC this year and Promare was everywhere, from cosplays to posters to fanarts. I actually cosplayed as Kamina from Gurren Lagann and had a few people call me Galo from Promare. Needless to say, I was a little interested to see it. I wasn’t totally sold though. Fast forward to the past few days: Promare was coming back in theaters, December 8th for the sub and December 10th for the dub. My friends were going to the subbed version, and when one couldn’t go last minute, the ticket practically fell into my lap. There I was, walking in blind to this movie with no sense of what I was about to witness.
