Ice Age: Continental Drift

To continue my Ice Age marathon, I watched Ice Age: Continental Drift. I haven’t seen this one. It has Denis Leary, Queen Latifah, John Leguizamo, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Keke Palmer, Wanda Sykes, Ray Romano, and Josh Gad.

In this movie, the squirrel makes the continents happen. Manny, Sid, and Diego are separated from the others. Manny promises to get back to them. They encounter a monkey pirate with an animal crew. Manny, Sid, Granny, and Diego steal the pirate’s ship. They do make it to the others. The monkey pirate gets eaten by sirens. The squirrel also makes Atlantis disappear.

I did like this movie. Next week I’m watching Ice Age: Collision Course.

The Circle (movie)

My mother did rent The Circle for us to watch. The Circle is based on the book by Dave Eggers. I read the book many months ago. The movie has Emma Watson, Ellar Coltrane, Tom Hanks, Karen Gillan, John Boyega, and Patton Oswalt.

Warning: DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE, READ THE BOOK INSTEAD.

The Circle is about a woman name Mae. She gets an opportunity to work at a tech company called The Circle. The Circle though has products that invade privacy.

They chopped the book into pieces. It was horrible. Ty wears a hoodie and he doesn’t actually tell her who he is. Mae is NOT a hero in the book. She’s a believer of the company even at the end of the book. Annie is in a coma at the end of the book. The movie sucked. My mother even didn’t like it. Some of the acting wasn’t good. The only good thing about this movie was Tom Hanks.

The Handmaid’s Tale (book, movie, tv show)

I finished reading The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.  There was a movie based on the book in 1990. And now there is a tv show based on the book on Hulu. The movie has Natasha Richardson, Faye Dunaway, Aidan Quinn, Elizabeth McGovern, and Robert Duvall.

Warning: there are some gross parts and some sex.

Before I begin, I have something to say. At first, I thought this is just fiction until I got to the part about what happened before the handmaids came into being. That is when I realized that this really could be the future. I mean Trump wants a wall, and terrorism is happening. It’s scary if this could happen. They twist the Bible to fit so they can control women and then secretly backtrack what they say with a nightclub of sorts.

Anyway, here’s what it is about a woman tells a story of being a handmaid. Handmaids are baby makers for the officials of what was America. It is called Gilead. If they weren’t in shape to be a handmaid, they are cleaners of toxic waste or farmers. Offred wants to escape in some way, but can’t. She later is “kidnapped” by an underground group called Mayday.

The movie and book are similar. But she and her daughter are given a name in the movie. The tv show (I only have seen the first episode so far) is little different. The Commander’s name is the same as the historical notes at the end of the book. Her daughter is given a name too.The ending of the movie is different. She kills the Commander. (I like this ending better than the book ending.)

I sorta liked the book. I didn’t like the ending because it leaves you hanging. Next, I’m listening to the Inferno by Dante Alighieri.

You can get the book The Handmaid’s Tale at Wordery.com, Kobo.com, and Downpour.com.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

For my Ice Age marathon, I watched Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. I think I did see a little of this movie before, but not the whole thing. It has Karen Disher, Queen Latifah, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Simon Pegg, and Ray Romano.

In this movie, Sid finds eggs in a frozen cave. He takes the eggs because he’s jealous of Manny and Ellie. He wants a family too. The eggs hatch and they are dinosaur babies. The dinosaur mother comes after them. Sid is taken too. Manny, Ellie, and Diego go to rescue him. They find out there is a paradise underneath the ice. The squirrel (Scat) finds a girl squirrel. They battle for the nut and also fall in love. But the girl squirrel was too bossy and he leaves her and takes the nut. Sid gets rescued and the dinosaur mother attacks the white dinosaur monster.

I did like this movie. Next week I’m watching Ice Age: Continental Drift.

Get Out (movie)

The other movie my mother got was Get Out. She has been wanting to see the movie even since it came out. She has been bugging me about seeing it too. I didn’t really want to see it, but I knew if it was good she drive me crazy about it. Get Out has Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Marcus Henderson, Betty Gabriel, and LilRel Howery.

Warning: It has a twist at the end.

Get Out is about a black man who is dating a white girl. He is invited to the girl’s house. He meets her parents. The family is sorta weird, and then the parents announce that there will more people coming for a party. Those people were acting weird. He finds out the family’s secret. I’m not going to spoil it.

Yes, I have to admit the movie was really good. It wasn’t what my mother and I expected. I just looked up to see if there will be a sequel. An article says there will be one coming out March 2019. That would be awesome because I have questions about the end.

 

The Revenant

Last weekend my mother got two movies. I’ll post about the other one Friday. I didn’t know The Revenant is semi based on a true story until I looked up about the movie. The Revenant has Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter, and Forrest Goodluck.

Warning: there is lots of violence and one sad part. Big Warning 2: the movie ends abruptly.

The Revenant is about a man named Hugh Glass. He led some traders around in the wilderness. He gets attacked by a man and his men leave him to die. One of the men kills his son. He survives to get his revenge.

Since it ends abruptly, I looked up more info on him (below). The movie was really good. My uncle liked the movie too.
