All the Yes’s!

Movie and Book cover

Now we all know the book is pretty much all the time better than the movie. Which is why sometimes I wont read the book until I’ve seen the movie. However, I don’t always believe this is true. What I try to do, is separate the two. I tell myself before I see the movie that this is not the book, it’s a completely separate thing. Sometimes when I look at the new covers, I feel it doesn’t really let you use your imagination. It almost feels like when you see the movie character on the cover, that’s it…That’s the character. That’s it.

I do dislike it though when they decide to “update” anything really. Take Star Wars for a good example, when they decided to make 1,2 & 3 and they changed the original ending of number 6 and put Hayden Christensen at the end instead of the “original” Darth Vader, Sebastian Shaw (I say “original” because there were about 3 people who played the original Darth Vader). Now ALL the new dvds and blurays have Hayden Christensen at the end…Even though he didn’t “die” young…It’s just a silly concept, which makes no sense. Darth Vader died an older man, not a young one. They didn’t change Obi-Wan, did they?

What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

Dance! I love those dancing videos of Astaire and Rogers, and I have such a crush on Gene Kelly. They just moved. When they dance, they just seem to move (sounds like a really stupid way to describe it I know). The best way I can describe it, it just seemed natural to move that way, almost as natural as walking. All that twerking and krumping, it’s just not dancing to me, it’s all just disjointed…Just my personal opinion.

What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?

Its hard to say musical a favourite genre for books, but musicals truly are probably my favourite genre. I guess if I was looking for a genre that was to fit both, would have to be fantasy. Lord of the Rings springs to mind where the genre really does fit both the book and the movie.

How often do you people watch?

I do it quiet a lot, if I’m at work I probably am doing it at least once or twice a day. Where I work currently we are the central part of helping people find their way, we are the front desk and we’ve got these huge windows that we can look out at. It’s incredibly addictive. It’s incredibly addictive for people watching and day dreaming on a quiet day.

What have you only recently formed an opinion about?

Good Question…There is a lot of different issues out there and lots of different opinions and I have re-looked at a lot of mine own. This is what I’ve discovered. There are far too many different opinions out there and that is what they are…Opinions…Just because you or I think it a certain way doesn’t make it’s right. For anyone, or any level. You can sit on your social media and try to change the meaning of a word to suit yourself, it still doesn’t mean that’s what that’s means. You can tell yourself that meaning or that word is not the same when it applies to you, so you don’t have to think of yourself as the same as the people who hurt you, but you are still doing the exact same thing. I get it, it’s like the bullied becomes the bullying, or the abused become the abusers, it’s a very well known thing to happen. You trying to sit there and saying though “Well it’s the not the same when I do it” Doesn’t make it suddenly change. I mean with anything, not just bullying and abuse. If you are doing the exact same hateful and saying vile things, like those that were said or done to you…Then yes, you are the same as them. You don’t get a “Get out of Jail” free card.

Get to Know the Blogger … Part 2

Get to know me!…Part 2

So last week I started off a getting to know me challenge and as I mentioned I “stole” it from Vrushali who found it on  ChocolatenWaffles’s Blog. (Please go and check them out!) Instead of doing it all in one go, I am instead doing it in 25 part questions and this is Part 2…So let’s start…

  1. What movies could you watch over and over again and still love?  A lot of the musicals I watch over and over again and I still love them. Except for La La Land, I have no interest in seeing that film again. The other movies I can watch over and over again and still do, are all the Lord of the Rings and Hobbits films. They are just the type of movies that take me away and I love it.
  2. Last person you kissed/kissed you? It would have to be my partner, but it depends if you include my dog or not,lol
  3. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?  No, there not really that huge down under. You’re more likely to find people here doing some kind of sport or life saving activities.
  4. Would you ever strip or pose naked in a magazine? It honestly depends on why I’d be posing nude. I have no problem with nudity, but I’m not just going to do it for no reason.
  5. When was the last time you wrote a letter on paper? I think the last time I wrote a letter was to Matt Smith (11th Doctor on Doctor Who) but I never sent it. It was just basically saying how much I appreciated the way he played the Doctor, he made me feel less “weird”.
  6. Can you change the oil on a car? I don’t know, I’ve never tried.
  7. Ever got a speeding ticket? I have no licence
  8. Ever ran out of gas? See above.
  9. Favorite kind of sandwich?  Fritz and sauce, I just love it!
  10. Best thing to eat for breakfast? Oh wow, what isn’t the best thing to eat for breakfast?
  11. What is your usual bedtime?  I usually head to bedat 11 pm, and sleep usually comes to me at 12. Depending on what I’m doing the next day.
  12. Are you lazy? I’m not sure that I’m lazy but I am really bad at procrastinating, once I get going I tend to keep going.
  13. When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween? We don’t really celebrate Halloween Down Under, but it is getting bigger and people are doing it more often. I think though if we did I probably would have been a Disney Princess and a Fairy or something.
  14. What is your Chinese astrological sign? I am a Rat. Rats are supposed to be quick-witted, resourceful, versatile, kind, smart, and lovely. Which of course, is totally true =P
  15. How many languages can you speak? Just the one unfortunately.
  16. Do you have any magazine subscriptions? No, I do sometimes buy a Cosmo every know and then as well though.
  17. Which are better, LEGOs or Lincoln logs? I don’t know what Lincoln Logs are. So LEGO…
  18. Are you stubborn? Well my Star Sign is Taurus, so the most stubborn of all signs! So I definitely can be, especially if I think the matters, matters.
  19. Which is better Leno or Letterman? I never really watched either program, but if I had to choose I probably would have to have gone with Letterman.
  20. Ever watch soap operas? We watch the UK soaps, but they always irritate us!
  21. Are you afraid of heights? It depends on the height!
  22. Do you sing in the car? I don’t drive.
  23. Do you sing in the shower? Sometimes.
  24. Do you ever dance in the car? I dance and sing together.
  25. Ever used a gun? Fake gun? Yeah. Real gun? Are you kidding?

Songs we listen too…

In case you hadn’t heard the new “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer is out and what comes along with that, is the soundtrack. The new movie already has brought out a preview of one of the tracks featuring Taylor Swift and Zayn.

It started to make me think, because I really enjoyed the song, but have no intention of seeing the movie and I didn’t see the first one either. However, I loved the entire soundtrack. It got me wondering how many of you either liked a movie, but hate the songs or how many of you have hated a movie, but like the music? Which ones were they? Please share your thoughts below!

Share Your World … Week 48

Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?  

It depends on the dish! Sometimes having nuts can give the dish a different, crispy feel. I think they are great in things like salads, but not so great in something like soup.

If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction?

Mine would probably be a romantic-comedy. Which is funny because I don’t actually like those, but it makes the most sense for a film for me, I’ve dated some real funny ones, but ended up with the best!

 Who talks real sense to you?

My Grandmother, she such a non nonsense type person, she also really gets me as well. She knows what I’m capable of and what I’m not. When I’m ready to listen and when I’m not.

Do you have a favorite board game?

My favourite board game is probably Monopoly. I usually am not a huge game board player, because I don’t like sitting around for too long. One of the reasons I like Monopoly is because you can have a few people playing, so it’s a bit more interactive.

Beauty and the Beast Trailer is finally here!!!

Halloween: Trick or Treat?

So what do you prefer readers? Tonight on my television screen are all types of Halloween movie…Funny, Based on true events etc. Over the weekend I was watching a lot of documentaries of horror stories, a lot of whom real life stories have been turned into “Hollywood Magic”. My post this afternoon is based on probably one of the most well-known murderess after watching a show about her on the History Channel…Such a great channel! Whereas tonight I am planning on watching all the comedy type Halloween movies.

So what do you prefer to watch comedy, real life, psychologically thrillers. Or do you, like me, like to watch a combination of the lot?…With a glass of wine, or your choice of beverage ~.^
