Miniseries Review: Big Little Lies

This has been one of the greatest star-power-stuffed show on TV. The dynamics of friendships, frenemies and a lot of craziness was portrayed by some of the biggest Hollywood stars today. They brought to life some of the mos infuriating, complicated women who felt all too real sometimes. I have to give it up to HBO for bringing this female driven show to the screen. Continue reading

TV Review: Confess

Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite New Adult author and there are some of her books I haven’t read, others that I was not a big fan of. Confess is one of the ones I really enjoyed when I first read it in 2015. When I heard it was being made into a TV show, I decided to read it again and I must admit I didn’t like it as much as I did the first time round. But I was still excited about the TV show because I just realized I love adaptations so much regardless of how crappy it turns out. Continue reading

This was my most anticipated movie of 2017 and I enjoyed it very much.

Trailer: Confess

Everyone knows I am a diehard Colleen Hoover fan and that means I cannot contain my excitement when anything of hers crosses my path. I think I have watched this trailer over a hundred times by now and I thought it would be best if I shared it now that the release date is almost here. It will be live on the fourth of April on Go90. I have never uttered the words I wish I lived in America until I found out the app was only available there. But with all the universal CoHorts, I’m sure something will happen and it will be available to the rest of us. Continue reading

Marvel’s Iron Fist: Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

When I saw how badly the show was doing according to the ratings, I just had to find out what was happening. I mean, it’s Marvel! How could they mess up a show? I get it, the plot line is nothing new but Marvel always delivers. I decided to watch it before reading any of the reviews just so that I could form my own opinion instead of watching it while picking out everything I have read that is wrong with it. Continue reading

TV Review: Big Little Lies

I really loved the book by Liane Moriarty by the same name and to say I have been looking forward to the show is an understatement. First of all, the story was not over the top but I think there was a way that Moriarty delivered the story that just made it enjoyable. As much as it surrounded something horrible, the story was still full of humor and relatable bits for the mothers out there. Continue reading

Trailer: Everything, Everything

Have you read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon? I only read it about a moth ago when I was going through the list of books being made into movies this year. If you read my review on it you know I was not a fan of some aspects of the book but I loved the diversity in it. I knew I would watch the movie long before I read the book to be honest because I have a thing for adaptations. Continue reading
