The Secret: Dare to Dream (Netflix review)

Director; Andy Tennant
Drama/Romance
1h 47 minutes
Streaming on Netflix

I want to start with an update. Due to Covid-19, there hasn’t been barely any press screenings, nor new movies have dropped, making my job of writing about them a tad harder, and if you follow me on Instagram, then you might know that I not too long ago signed a contract with a publisher in London. So, my time and prime focus have been the process of getting my first novel out in the world. So from now on, there will be fewer updates, mainly when I get the time to watch a movie or tv-show, and I will try my hardest to not let this blog run in the sand because writing about films is truly a passion of mine, one I don’t want to lose. With that said, last weekend I took some time off and decided to watch The Secret: Dare to dream, a new film on Netflix.

Not too shabby, finally a movie to spread some good vibes during times like these. Andy Tennant managed to capture the essence, belief, and depth of the concept that is ”The secret” – the power to attract what you desire, to manifest your thoughts – into a beautiful, sweet, warm, and inspiring movie.

The uplifting story worth every minute of your time will not only motivate you to change the way you see things but also how you think and respond to everything that happens in your day to day life.
Instead of focusing on everything bad that happens and getting upset that something doesn’t go your way at the moment, focus on what you want, and attract that. Don’t your waste your energy on the negative and put it to good use or you will attract that negative energy in your surrounding, instead, focus on a positive mindset, and soon, things will change.

They have successfully emerged the good and the bad into a beautiful romance flick. You got a mother of 3 who lives with a gut feeling that something bad is always around the corner – her being a quite negative person. That is until the day she meets Bray – a professor who follows the rules of The Secret, a positive man that helps her and ends up delivering her some pretty good news by the end of it.

It’s a fantastic, uplifting, and motivating movie to watch on a weekend, a rainy day, or why not snuggle up with a cup of tea and wind down once you get home from work. Entertaining and loving, just what we and the world needs right now. 7/10



The Invisible Man (Bluray review)

Director; Leigh Whannell
Mystery/Thriller/”horror”
2h 4 minutes

The Invisible man has hands down become one of my favorite thrillers, and I can even go as far as saying that it has also become my favorite of 2020. Yes, there are some plotholes here and there that should’ve been filled for the ”perfect” motion picture, however, not something that I was affected by, though certain many will point them out.

The massive tension devours you from beginning to end, and your anxiety kicks in, you got your blood pumping, heart racing, and unable to look away, craving more of the story – there wasn’t so much development as one would’ve hoped for, but I found it to be enough to be entertained by the film – plus, the camera simply adores Elisabeth moss, she has a certain sensual and delicate beauty about herself that I can’t really put my finger on, but I just become mesmerized whenever the focus is on her, plus her phenomenal acting makes it very easy to stay grabbed by the visual and story.

There has been a few remakes made of the classic, however, (personally), none that has captured my interest like this one has, with today’s modern technology and tomorrows writing and acting – you’re in for a suspenseful ride worth every minute of your time, don’t listen to the negative reviews, prepare yourself a warm cup of tea, snuggle underneath a blanket, and watch it – if not for the story, but for her because Miss Moss is superb.

As Cecilia manages to escape her abusive boyfriend she soon enough finds out that he’s taken his own life and left her his fortune.
Although, with very slight belief that she’s finally out of his hands for good, lethal occurrences start taking places, ones she has no idea how are happening but by someone she cannot see…

I loved it, I truly couldn’t keep my eyes away from the screen the entire time, though flawed, it was still a film with few twists, thrill, and the horror essence makes itself present throughout the story keeping the viewer on its toes and interested throughout. 9/10

Onward (review)

Director; Dan Scanlon
Animation
1h 42 minutes
Swedish premiere; March 6th

What a bloody cry fest! I mean, the bursting out in tears at the end, I was bawling my eyes out, no clue why I have become so sensitive these past weeks, or I am just suddenly paying more attention to the writing, the story, and truly connecting to it, either that or I am slowly becoming the puss of all puss!

Onward deliveries that warm fuzzy feeling from beginning to end, it was emotional on so many levels because it is relatable to so many, that is what made the movie so beautiful because it pulls the strings of your heart and touches your soul.
It is an adventurous animation with wonderful colors that’ll burst through the screen, moments that’ll make you smile, and appreciate so many great things that sometimes, one takes for granted.

Two elven brothers receive a gift from their mother once they both are over 16 – a magical item that can bring their father back for one day, and they embark on a roller coaster of a journey to make it happen.

It’s cute, and to some it will sadly hit a little too close to home toward the ending, and my heart was a raisin throughout, just by the thought.
With its great and detailed graphic, some laughs and a lot of crying, it is a moving film for the whole family to enjoy. 7/10



Mindscape (Review)

mindscape-699284370-large_540db745ddf2b364a736da75Director;Jorge Dorado
99 min
Drama/Thriller
From 2014

Finally one hell of a ride of an slow paced yet interesting thriller. It’s intriguing and tense, a script that will confuse you and keep you wondering while trying to put every clue together and solve the mystery yourself, unfortunately you’ll fail completely because it won’t be what you’ll expect and THAT is the greatest part of the film, it’s unpredictable! It’s entertaining and has an amazing and talanted cast doing a wonderful job.

Mark Strong plays John, a man with the gift and ability to enter people’s memories. After the death of his wife his own memories taunts him causing difficulties when working on someone else’s thoughts that he has to stop working, that is until he runs out of money and needs a job. He meets the brilliant Anna (Taissa Farmiga) a girl who refuses to eat and his one and only task is to get the girl to eat, but when looking for the cause of her behaviour he enters her mind and has to figure out if she is a sociopath or a victim of trauma? Although, who’s entering who’s mind? 6/6
