Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

Today I want to talk about a movie I watched yesterday and was swept away.

The School for Good and Evil

I remember years ago, back when I started to read in English and was religiously watching BookTube videos, The School for Good and Evil book series was pretty popular. It also found it’s place on my tbr, but as time passed I never picked it up and with time it got pushed away by all the other books that were released.
I had no idea Netflix was making an adaptation of the same, but you can imagine my pleasent surprise when I saw it on my homepage (I guess I should keep up with book/movie news more).
As I never read the books, I can’t compare the movie to them, or say if certain things were changed.
However, I can tell you that I really, really liked this motion picture and 2,5 hourst just passed by so quickly, because I was having so much fun.
I guess I needed some fantasy in my life, a magical world that made me daydream how it would be like if those pararel worlds really existed. I caught myself more then a few times daydreaming about crossing that line that parts our world from the different ones we read only in our books.

The cast was very good. Charlize Theron was probably the most noticable, but there are also Kerry Washington, Laurence Fishburne and Kate Blanchett (who narrates the story).
Young actresses Sophia Anne Caruso and Sofia Wylie were both amazing in their performance.

This movie is perfect choice for a family movie night, as it is appropriate for younger audience but interesting enough so all generations can enjoy it.
I will admit that I find it to be better than I expected and I highly, highly recommend it.

Movie Monday: Me Time #MovieMonday #MeTime #Comedy

Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

Today I want to talk about a comedy I watched two days ago. Me Time was so fun and I want to share my opinion and spread a word, so you can give it a go too.

Me Time

I am happy to announce that we have Netflix back again in our household and Me Time was the first movie my husband and I watched. We happened to play it two days in a row because the first day we were both too tired so giving it another shot the next day was a good move because we both liked it very much.

This was a perfect comedy to relax with, with great cast of characters and actors who played them. Some scenes were hilarious and I still laugh about them today.

My sister paid me a visit today and we ended up talking about Me Time as she watched it too and she and her husband also loved it. So when I do the math, it’s four of us who agree the movie is worth of checking.

I don’t have much more to say about it except that the music was also good. I mean, even Seal acted himself in a few scenes.

Overall, if you’re looking for a comedy to chill with, look no further: Me Time will give you an awesome me time (or time with a company, whichever you prefer better).
