MINI MOVIE REVIEWS // Greatest Showman, Paddington & more

Why is the ratio been movies and reading so drastic? This is my cry for help to pick up a book. I went into a mini crisis and didn’t feel like reading anything for week one of March and then when I did want to read I couldn’t because of I had to study… it’s a hard life.
Anyways, I’ve seen a couple movies recently and really want to talk about them so here we are.

Paddington 2

I was so excited for this omg. Loads were saying how cute it was and I couldn’t wait. I love Paddington so much, especially the audiobooks we had and this movie was so sweet. Paddington is so precious and I really loved it. It was so heartwarming yet sad at the same time? Basically, if you don’t know what these are about, well it’s about a little marmalade-loving bear named Paddington who comes to London and moves in with this family and is very clumsy. It was honestly so sweet and I highly recommend these movies!

Pitch Perfect 3

I’m a huge Pitch Perfect fan. I love the first movie and thought the second was good and I waited forever to watch this but was really scared since I heard mixed things and also two major characters weren’t in it. I didn’t hate and I did enjoy it, it’s not as good as the others. I LOVED the music and plot was alright. The humour was a little awkward at times. My favourite of all the characters is definitely Becca and I did like her story. It was a good movie but not the best of them. If you haven’t watched the first one then I urge you to do so because they are really entertainable.

The Greatest Showman

You’ve probably heard of this and this movie IS SO GOOD OMG! I just love it! The music is amazing and the characters are so well constructed. The plot is very interesting and so was the setting. I loved Zendaya and Zac Efron’s character. The choreography is amazing and it’s so entertaining. I adore it and PLEASE GO WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN’T because it’s so freaking good!!!!

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

So I discovered via the books and tv show (i know but I adore Cassie now so you can’t judge) and I enjoyed at the time. Not that this a horrible movie, but after my re-read, I realised how different it is from the book. I enjoyed certain aspects but they changed quite a bit. Simon had the best character adaptation and the sets were impressive. Honestly please go and read this series if you haven’t!!!!

Goodbye, Christopher Robin

Ya’ll know I love Winnie the Pooh and that looked so sweet. Well, I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT! This movie was way more emotional than I was expecting. I adored it but wow. It’s just the story of how Milne wrote Winnie and his life. The cinematography was amazing and I realised how much I didn’t know. Wow is all I can! So impactful and I highly suggest you watch it if you love Winnie the Pooh! Also I’m low-key freaking out about the live action movie coming out soon)

Call Me By Your Name

I loved this movie and again did not expect how much of an impact it’d have on me. I’m going to put a trigger on some explicit content so keep that in mind if you’re wanting to watch it. But WOW!! This movie really does deserve all the awards. It’s a phenomenal gay romance set in the 80’s and it’s honestly amazing. The setting is beautiful just as much as the story. I have a strong feeling that I need to read this. It sounds even more amazing. I loved the soundtrack and Elio. I am left stunned and lost of words.
