Georgiana wrote one of the few English reviews based on the Romanian books, which I hope you enjoy as much as I did. It is by far the most detailed opinion on not only the first book, but of the Wallachian Universe as a whole.
I was sick with the flu so I splurged on Amazon Prime, because that is what the modern human does. I saw some movies through a screenwriter/scriptreader perspective and some impressed me, some did not. I recommend this movie to feminists who want to have a good time 😀 It is not going to be the best movie of the year, but it will bring out some laughs and the acting is great!
There is an upside to having the flu and high fever: I couldn't literally do anything else around the house besides shivering under the covers and watching movies. Overall, Spectre was a dissapointment. If you want a real action movie, I recommend you focus on THE EXPENDABLES series. I hope they do a better job with the next 007 movie.
Because Christmas is around the corner, my husband wanted to watch his favorite holiday movie, Christmas Vacation, with Chevy Chase as the patriarch of the Griswalds. As a grown-up, I have interpreted it from a feminist point of view and I must say, this movie does not belong on my list of feminist movies. Why?
When you are watching a show, you decide quite fast if it is worth watching or not. You usually don't do it consciously, you just feel it in your gut. Take a moment and think about it. How do you judge a movie/series? Here is my 5 Paws criteria. Looking forward to hearing your opinions:)
