This or That? #71

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:

Has a book ever made you cry?

I am going to have to go with a resounding “YES”, in fact it was the classic book I was writing about last week (This or That #70) Ruth Park’s “Playing Beatie Bow” that was probably one of the first books that ever made me cry.

I’m not honestly sure how much I can write about why it made me cry, without giving big plot details. I guess the best I can say is that there is a lot of learning in the book. A lot of learning to appreciate the past and the present, a lot of appreciation for who you have in your life.

Childhood Flashbacks

So last weekend I saw “Jurassic World” and I absolutely loved it! In fact I (and my partner also) agreed that it may be on of the best movies that we’ve seen all year, and this is including the Avengers movie this year. Not for one moment did I have a “lull” moment where I silently took note of the other people in the cinema. I cried, I laughed, I “YAHOOED” and I jumped in my seat…Several times.

Since I’ve seen it I have been genuinely curious by the people who don’t love it. Now I am all for “You love what you love” it’s not my place to judge others, but most of these people refuse to even see the movie. I get the whole annoyance with too much CGI, but you barely notice it too be honest.

Anyways, WAY off of topic!

There are all these movies coming out this year and I swear that it’s like I am shrinking and feel like I am becoming younger again:

  • Jurassic World
  • Mad Max
  • Terminator
  • Cinderella
  • Star Wars
  • List goes on…

The only difference is that a lot of the them are reboots or are being filmed from a different type of perspective. For example Cinderella, instead of being another cartoon it is now a “real life” film (which I loved).

Has anyone else noticed this trend this year?

I just had to put this here, for anyone complaining that there’s no “plot” in the Jurassic movies…This is the plot of a dinosaur movie!lol
