Originally written on June 27th 2017 however changes were made to it now:
I have never watched a Malick film and didn’t know where to start. I’ve heard many things about his films and his directing. It always seemed like there was two extremes. One being that you would give your everything to him or you didn’t understand him, didn’t care to and/or never would. I figured The Tree Of Life was the one I had heard the most about so I figured that was a good enough place to begin.

Every movie I’ve seen about a young girl has always fell into the same type of category. It’s usually perhaps an awkward girl who has witty quips at the ready and confidence to spare. To why she isn’t popular is kind of a mystery because this character was always the girl you would want to hang out with. This character is always the girl I wish I had been when I was younger.

I have held and still hold irrational and rational anger towards a lot of things. I’ve been able to let go of some and ease my mind a little. Some things I’m still angry about are so small, I only think of them when I’m triggered by something. Others are so big that I have spent nights awake thinking of them. The Lizzie McGuire Movie is one of the big ones.

I had quite the time when I originally saw Evil Dead in theatres. Oh yes…here comes another story.

Kiki’s Delivery Service is hands down my favourite animated film. It took me a moment to figure out why it stuck with me so much as a kid and I think I’ve finally narrowed it down.
Besides the fact that I was obsessed with magic and witches as a kid, Kiki presented herself as a character who was the most relatable to me. No matter how much I wanted it to happen, I never got magic powers or a letter to Hogwarts.
A girl can dream.

So Pretty In Pink is my favourite Brat Pack film. Hands down.
But here’s the thing…

So Byzantium got lost in the vampire trend of the early 2010s. On paper, it’s got a lot going for it. Unless you have been living under a rock, you should be aware of the ocean blue Irish goddess herself: Saoirse Ronan. She’s perfection in every movie she touches. Probably even The Host as well which I haven’t seen but who knows what’s going to happen during these times. Neil Jordan is the director who also directed one of -if not- the best vampire movie Interview With A Vampire. Saoirse’s co-lead is Gemma Arterton who deserves a lot more shine than she gets. Caleb Landry Jones is yet another captivating actor who I get excited about every time I see him in a movie. The cast is also rounded out by the likes of Sam Riley, Jonny Lee Miller and others. Byzantium, in my mumble but correct opinion, is drastically underrated.

I will preface this with a couple things. I wrote this little ramble/review/story time session in 2017 when I originally watched Fifty Shades Of Grey. I know many people who haven’t seen it are already rolling their eyes at this and I mean you’re kind of in the right to do so. I had a lot to say and not this site to share it on at the time. Below you will find reasons to and not to watch these movies. Main reason but not only reason but a very very big reason is Dakota Johnson. Now I haven’t seen the last movie yet but with the same writer and director of the sequel…I’ll just let you read what I wrote at this point…

What makes a movie someone’s favourite movie?
I can’t speak for everyone and what they choose to proclaim as the movie that tops all others for them. I actually can’t barely put into words why my movie is my favourite in an articulate way. If you don’t know me or put two and two together from the image above, my favourite movie is Almost Famous. A coming of age story based on the true stories of a young Cameron Crowe being a Rock N’ Roll journalist in the 70s.

I cannot express how much Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli means to me. I first read it when I was around 10. I always felt out of place and different. A lot of kids feels that way and have no way to articulate it especially to other kids who might feel the exact someway. So when I first opened the simplistic teal cover, I felt validated for the first time. Different is special. Everyone is different. Everyone is special. It was as simple as that. Stargirl Carraway was my hero, my saviour and well me.
