Fantastic beasts and where to find them

I watched the movie and then read the screenplay today. Every scene and dialogue in the book matches with what I saw on the screen. It was like watching the movie for the second time – but with my added imagination, making it even more awesome. The descriptions of the beasts and reading more about the beasts made reading the book worthwhile.

My favorite sci-fi movies #RRSciFiMonth

I love Sci-fi, especially the movies. Most of the movies that I have enjoyed watching are sci-fi movies. It helps that my family also loves Sci-fi a lot. Whether I am watching a movie with my mom or my husband, we end up watching only sci-fi most of the times.sfm16_6

Here are my favorite sci-fi movies which I can watch again and again, any number of times. I have excluded some movies which were adapted from the book and where the book was better than the movie (like The Martian). This is going to be a very long list of movies.

Hugh Grant’s movies – Review

This post was pending from more than a year. I had drafted this post on Mar 4, 2015 @ 14:42 and the initial draft of this post was done on 16 Feb, 2015 @ 14:49. Whew! it has been lying in my drafts for more than a year. Today I was cleaning up all the draft posts, as there were many topics on which I did not want to write anymore. That was when I found this draft. I watched these movies last year and was planning to review them both. Hugh Grant is one of my most favorite actors. I mean, just look at him. Isn’t he one of the most handsome actors ever?! I watched these movies without reading any review or without any recommendation from anyone and still loved them. They are not so popular and well-known I feel and that was the reason why I wanted to review these underrated movies.

Pride and Prejudice

I am one of those few people (women) who did not like Pride and Prejudice novel. I know it is weird since everyone seems to like it.

I remember reading it for the first time when I was in high school after a friend recommended it to me. I found it extremely boring and I could not understand why people liked it so much. I still own that copy of this book. Recently (4 years back), I again tried reading the book. I thought since I was matured enough to understand the story, I might like it. But again after reading first few pages, I gave up thinking it was boring. I could not understand why women liked Mr. Darcy or Lizzy so much. I quit the 2005 movie adaptation midway as it was boring, while the husband slept off while watching the movie. It was that boring.

I have read these books and would love to watch a movie adaptation of these books. But we are still not sure if these books will be made into movies and if so, when they would be made.
