The 2018 Movies based on Books I’m more excited about.

Hello everyone!

2018 will be filled with many great Movies from different genres and a lot of them are Book adaptations!!

Here are some of the Movies based on books I’m more excited about and that will be released during this year (in order of release date):

Forever My Girl (Based on Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin)

Release date: January 19, 2018

I love Country music and a good romance with a leading man who is a guitar player (ahem, my husband plays the guitar) for me is a recipe for a good time.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

The Death Cure by James Dashner (Based on The Death Cure – Part 3 of The Maze Runner Trilogy by James Dashner).

Release date: January 26, 2018

Now that The Death Cure is coming we are planning to watch the first two movies from this Trilogy (The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials) the week prior to the release date of the third movie. And yes, those are Jojen Reed (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) from Game of Thrones in the Movie Trailer (another reason for me to watch this movie).

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Every Day by (based on Every Day by David Levithan)

Release date: February 23, 2018

Can you imagine falling in love with someone that Every Day wakes up in a different body?, a little unconventional but to me it seems like an interesting premise and also, I really liked the Movie Trailer.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Love, Simon (based on Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli)

Release date: March 16, 2018

I haven’t read the book yet and a lot of people is talking about how good it is, so I’ll definitely put it on my TBR List and hope to read it before the movie release.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Where’d You Go, Bernadette (Based on Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

Release date: May 11, 2018 (expected)

As someone living in the Pacific Northwest I love watching movies taking place or that make reference to people and locations in this area (10 Things I Hate About You, Sleepless in Seattle). There’s not Official Movie Trailer yet but below you’ll find a great Book Trailer from Hachette Australia Books.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Crazy Rich Asians by (Based on Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan)

Release date: August 17, 2018 (expected)

There’s still not an Official Trailer but the video below with the actors taking about the movie make it look really promising and entertaining.

 

What are the Book adaptations you’re more excited about this year? And what are your favorites from all times?

Movie Review: The Shape Of Water.

Storyline

From master storyteller Guillermo del Toro comes THE SHAPE OF WATER, an otherworldly fable set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Doug Jones. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

 

Review

The Shape Of Water is pure magic, poetry in motion with such an entrancing music that works as the perfect companion to the story.

Visually the movie is stunning, there’s an easy flow in the storytelling that keeps you enthralled the whole time and is full of wonderful and spellbinding moments with great acting.

An amazing work from Guillermo del Toro, a movie I can’t recommend enough and that will definitely be part of my Movie Collection.

Rating: 5 of 5.

Movie Recommendation: The Fate of the Furious.

The Fate of the Furious


Yesterday was Movie Night!, usually our Movie Night is on Tuesday but we couldn’t wait anymore to see the eight installment of the Fast and Furious saga. 

Thanks to my husband I became a fan of The Fast and Furious Movies (we have all of them), for that reason I was extremely excited about The Fate of the Furious and after seeing the movie I wasn’t disappointed.

The movie is definitely fast paced, with good action sequences and best of all Jason Statham is back!

I strongly recommend this movie that definitely will be part of our collection.

My Rating: 9 of 10.

Short Film Recommendation: The Boy in the Bubble.

“Flirting with spells is asking for trouble”

The Boy in the Bubble.

I’m constantly looking for Movies to increase my Collection and yesterday I found this Short Film that I absolutely loved.

The Boy in the Bubble is an enchanting story about first love, heartbreak and magic narrated by the wonderful Alan Rickman.

My Rating: 5 of 5.

If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it. Here’s the Teaser Trailer.

Alan Rickman, an actor whose work and versatility is an example for many.

Today my husband woke me up with the news that Alan Rickman (one of my favorites actors) died at the age of 69, to say I was surprised and in complete shock is an understatement.

The first time I watched Alan Rickman’s acting was in “Sense & Sensibility” (the adaptation from Jane Austen’s book, with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet), where he plays the role of Colonel Brandon, and immediately I became his fan.

Below is one of my favorite scenes from the movie (Colonel Christopher Brandon reading to Marianne Dashwood):

 

Besides his role in “Sense & Sensibility”, watching him like Severus Snape in “Harry Potter”, as Harry in “Love Actually”, as Hans Gruber in “Die Hard” and some others, shows his versatility as an actor and one of the reasons why he is admired by many.

Below are some of the most important scenes from his role as Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” Movies.

 

His death is a great loss and he’ll be sorely missed.

 

If people want to know who I am, it is all in the work.
