In three words: emotional, unpredictable, impactful. This is a movie of a lifetime. It's the movie of my generation. For ten years, the MCU has dominated the box office with 18 movies, and I can promise you that the 19th is going to be no different. This one was a different kind of MCU movie because well, everyone is in it, and although you think that might take away from the emotional intensity of the movie...you're in for a wild ride. This is my SPOILER-FREE review.
In three (four) words: Heartbreaking. Snot-inducing. Bittersweet. This book is beautiful. It truly is. If I had the energy and the emotional strength to reread it, I absolutely would, but this book haunted me for weeks.
In three words: Suspenseful. Creative. Real. I really enjoyed this book, but there were a few things that took away from a perfect rating.
I loved this book. Of course, there were parts that I naturally didn't like as much as others, but I loved this book. It was funny and real and sad and a breath of fresh air. It helped that the songs were lovely, as well. Maybe Someday just became my second-favourite Colleen Hoover book, not exactly an easy feat.
Is it going to win an Oscar? Probably not. Is it going to stay with me forever and ever and ever? No. But did it serve its purpose as quality entertainment with an engaging storyline and a badass protagonist? Yes. Very much so.
It was good, but...
In three words, Love, Simon was cute, heartwarming, and hilarious.
I was expecting this movie to be amazing. Fantastic. Life-changing. It was better. Black Panther just became one of those Marvel movies that stand out.
When I saw this book surface on the internet a few years ago, of course I wanted to read it. But the more I saw it being raved about by bookstagrammers and critics alike, the more I hesitated. I didn't want to see if it would live up to my expectations. But, wow. I finally picked it up because I knew the movie is going to be out soon (March 29th!), and I wanted to be able to write a good movie review about it. So, I read it. And, to say the least, I loved it.
A few thoughts: Lots of action. Kind of funny. It was inspiring. Engaging. Relatively easy to understand considering I have never studied military language. So, yeah, I liked it.
