Excerpt:

My phone rings, startling me. When I look at the screen and see Calvin’s name, I find myself letting out a little girlie squeal. “Hello, you,” I say, snuggling into my seat. “So, I wake up from an amazing sleep, look out of my window, and guess what?” he asks in a croaky voice, which sounds like he has, indeed, just woken up. “What?” “I see this beautiful girl sitting in a chair in her garden, sipping on what I assume is coffee, and I feel the need to say morning to her.” “Is that right?” I smile. “Yup.” A noise coming from the bottom of my garden startles me. When I see Calvin jump my back fence using one arm, still holding his phone in the other, I can’t believe my eyes. He smiles and briskly walks over to me. I’m stunned, the damn phone still attached to my ear. As soon as he reaches me, he bends down and plants a small kiss on my mouth. He then smiles and says, “Morning”, before turning and walking back to the fence to jump it again. I’m totally dumbstruck. Who does that? Calvin, that’s who. I laugh and shake my head, ending the call when I hear his chuckle.

Review of Cinderella live-action film

cinderella-live-action-news1

When a childhood classic is remade into a live-action film, we’re quick to assume that the movie will be a flop, because how can a classic be re-done? But if that mentality stops someone from seeing Cinderella, that would be a big mistake. This movie had everything, and more, from the original, and I enjoyed it immensely. The music was fantastic, the storyline was amazing, even with the few additions (in fact, I feel the additions only enhanced it), and the actors were perfection. helena-800

Speaking of perfection, I just loved that the fairy godmother wasn’t perfect; she was a clutz, unsure of her magic, and a big ole goof-ball! Helena Bonham Carter did such a great job of portraying her, that it was almost impossible to believe that it was the same person who played Bellatrix from Harry Potter.

I laughed, I cried, I cringed at certain … devastating … scenes, and I was even amazed at the special effects. I mean, it wasn’t that long ago that movie makers couldn’t possibly do something with a computer that put the watcher inside exploding fireworks. It was a bit slow going, but once the back story was told, it was a wonderful movie. It had dancing, singing, humor, fencing, love. This reviewer gives it an A.
