As the film of Alone in Berlin opens, German historians say facts were kept out of Hans Fallada’s original novel

Fascinating!  It's still an amazing book.

Wonder Woman novelization
Wonder Woman: The Official Movie Novelization - Nancy Holder

I had to do a quick stop at Walmart last night. I spotted this and couldn't resist getting it. A movie novelization that isn't a Junior novel, yay!

 

I'm not planning on reading it just yet, but I did take a look at a few of my favorite scenes from the movie. I have a feeling this won't get above a 3-star rating from me. The scenes I read weren't bad, but there was very little extra for those who've seen the movie (like character thoughts, info that couldn't be shown on-screen, etc.), and the action was better on-screen. Oh well, maybe other scenes will be better.

REVIEW BY AMY - If This Was a Movie (Falling into Fame #1) by Ginna Moran
If This Was a Movie - Ginna Moran
When seventeen-year-old Nora Novak’s father dies and she discovers he cut her from his will, she finds herself in an unbearable situation with a woman who can only be described as a step-monster. Struggling to put together the pieces of her shattered life, Nora moves from Austin, Texas to Beverly Hills, California to live with her aunt in hopes of a fresh start.

After a silly T-shirt sparks a conversation with Eli Evans, an up-and-coming teen celebrity heartthrob, Nora is swept into the dazzling limelight of Hollywood. But beneath the glitz and glamour of fame lies a world where even the most innocent stories are twisted for a great headline.

As secrets from Nora’s past emerge in the tabloids, she must challenge the most ruthless paparazzi in order to hold onto her relationship with Eli and salvage what’s left of her reputation—or return to a life where she’s just another nameless face amid the masses.

Fun applying a bit of the Bellisario's Maxim
The Pelican Brief - John Grisham

There are a lot of movies based on Grisham books. I decided to check some out when I found about them. Never watched this movie but kept hearing about it, so I had it my tbr pile ready for the game square.

The idea is that in a country filled with lawyers to the gills (it's a factor that's gone over a lot through the pages), a shot in a million had a lot of chances of happening: some busy-body would stumble into the right theory. The bad luck comes in when the brief is picked up as a way to needle back in a quarrel between agencies. No one takes it seriously, but a lot of noise is made. And it just happens to be right. A lot of pettiness that results in a murder fest.

 

The good guys win. Or at least they get to the end of the book alive. Let's not think about the trial. I don't much like their chances of lasting up to it in a real life scenario. After all, the small fishes pay, the rest keep swimming. We know how long those types of cases takes, and how often the big weights actually go to jail: One patsy every age.

(spoiler show)


It's an entertaining thriller (and depressing if you have your brain-cells firing too much). I'm still likely to read The Firm at some point (the movie that first got me interested in these books)

Movie Review: Moana (2016)

 

 

I loved this movie. It was wonderful. It’s truly a wonderful movie for kids and adults.

 

This movie showcase how important the journey is. It also celebrates the pacific Island culture, their relationship with the ocean and islands as well as preserving their history and looking to the future. Yes, magic is mysterious, wondrous and could have solved the issue, but in the end Moana, Maui, and the Polynesian people had to complete this journey or they wouldn’t have learned a thing. 

 

My 5-year-old also enjoyed the movie. He did comment that the lava monster was scary, but only for that little bit.

 

What a marvousl movie that is well worth watching. For me I will be watching this again and putting it on my buy list.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

 

I borrowed this movie from the library. The library gives me the freedom to watch all the movies I want for free.
