Room – Trailer/Review

Room_PosterWhen I first read Emma Donoghue’s Book “Room” I fully cried and bawled my eyes out, because this story is just beyond sad. When I heard that there was a movie coming out I was destined to see it. TIFF annoaunced that they would be having it in their theatre’s and I nearly lost my mind. I have to admit I’m a lucky girl when it comes to watching movies and television shows early, but this one was a hard one to get into to.

I basically begged a co-worker to take me with her and thank GOD her friend couldn’t make it.

As soon as I got into the theatre I had tissues ready as I already knew the story.

Can I just say this movie was absolutely beautiful. The filming, the acting, the absolute horrific situation they’re turned into a beautiful story, UGH definitely the best movie I’ve seen at TIFF… although I have only seen 3 haha. Those reviews will come out soon.

Brie Larson, if you don’t win an Oscar for this roll then the Oscars are fixed!!! You were absolutely breathtaking. No one else could of played “Ma” better. I can’t believe this woman went from playing Envy Adam in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to this absolutely terrified and strong mother. Now that’s an actor.

Jacob Tremblay… what an amazing child actor. When I was thinking of who could possibly play this role I didn’t think it was possible. Fiona Weir (the casting director) is a genius. Then again it could of been the parents who got him to audition. But damn Fiona better win an Emmy for Outstanding Casting… cause this child was perfection.

From a Chick’s Perspective 5/5. – The best movie I’ve ever seen at TIFF. I’ve been obsessed with this book for so long that I am so thankful that the movie came out as wonderful as it did. What an amazing cast, amazing acting… It’s a beautiful and horrific story. I can’t WAIT for all of you to see it!!!

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom – Movie Review

MandelaMANDELA : LONG WALK TO FREEDOM

So if you’re not aware this movie is about Nelson Mandela and his struggles in South Africa from childhood all the way to becoming the President of South Africa. This movie is beyond emotional, real and heartfelt. You will leave the theater in tears and speechless.

I had the opportunity to be the second audience IN THE WORLD to watch this movie. Thank you TIFF! (Toronto International Film Festival). My mom and step-dad were lucky enough to be in the first audience. My mother warned me to bring tissue, because she knows i’m a SAP and I cry at everything. Guys, this movie made me bawl…

New Girl Cry

I’ve NEVER cried so hard at a movie before in my LIFE. It was so inspirational, beautiful and completely amazing in all aspects. Idris Elba is just perfection. I couldn’t of asked for a better actor to play Nelson Mandela… and Naomie Harris is just breathtaking. Her role as Winnie just made it come to life. I have to keep talking about Idris because even though he didn’t look exactly like Mandela he had the same heart, passion and amazing acting skills to do this performance and I hope and PRAY he get’s recognized as much as possible for this performance. What a beautiful movie. I URGE YOU to see this when it comes out in theaters as it will change your perspective on everything.

The thing that really made me think was all this madness in South Africa was going on and I was just a baby. As a bi-racial woman I’ve heard my fair share of racist slurs and this movie just makes you want to be a better person and do something for your society even if it’s little.

** To my cousin Laura: Thank you so much for experiencing this movie with me. ❤ ***

From a Chick’s Perspective I give this movie a 5/5. Beautiful, REAL and just brilliant. One of the best movies I’ve seen in my life.

“Alone we have no power, together, we have the power to change the world”.

God Bless Nelson Mandela ❤
