Charlie St. Cloud

Charlie St. Cloud Movie Poster

Just from watching the trailer I am already reaching for the kleenex, there has been quite a few Drama Romances out there lately but I really think this one is going to be special. I don’t think I can wait until July 30th. So I think I may just have to read the book.

Zac Efron, Amanda Crew, Donal Logue, Charlie Tahan, Kim Basinger, Ray Liotta

Based on an acclaimed novel, Charlie St. Cloud is a romantic drama starring Zac Efron as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way. In this emotionally charged story, he begins a romantic journey in which he embraces the dark realities of the past while discovering the transformative power of love. Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Oscar® winner Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan), as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown. But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it. After his high–school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love. And as he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own. [apple]

The Young Victoria

The Young VictoriaI’ am so mad that this movie did not get more publicity. I remember seeing it in a trailer last spring and that was that I never heard of it again! Im praying to god that the small independent theater will at least show it. Love the Magic Lantern! Anyways there are some big names on the cast list. Emily Blunt, Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Mark Strong and the best part is that it is a period film (favorite).

Chocolat

☆☆☆☆

This movie was amazing! I die! I do not know what took me so long to watch it. Watched it for the my Catholicism class and oh man did I have fun analyzing it! I love analyzing movies! Obvi! Two words: Johnny Depp. Kinda forgot how hot he was!

While I was watching it, I got a huge craving for chocolate. Hmm… wonder why? Luckily I had some Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Squares stashed away…sshhh.

In 1959, Vianne and her daughter Anouk guided by the North Wind drift into a small french village wearing their red cloaks and open a chocalterie….during lent. The conservative town are either curious or appalled. Soon Vianne has captured the town, takes in an abused wife, reunites families, delights a dying diabetic, and stands up to the strict Mayor. Vianne has a knack for guessing peoples favorite chocolate, but upon the arrival of the Irish river gypsies she finds her match. Roux. But can the North Wind pull Vianne and Anouk away from this town…?

One of my favorite quotes from this movie is by the Pere Henri:

“I don’t want to talk about His divinity. I’d rather talk about His humanity. I mean, you know, how he lived his life here on Earth. His kindness. His tolerance. Listen, here’s what I think. I think we can’t go around… measuring our goodness by what we don’t do. By what we deny ourselves… what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we’ve got to measure goodness… by what we embrace… what we create… and who we include.”

Time Traveler’s Wife

So, yesterday I bought the The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, and I have watched this trailer like a million times! Each time I watch it I am on the verge of crying, even though I have a huge smile. I love seeing the previews first because now I can imagine Eric Bana’s and Rachel McAdam’s face when I read. 36 pages down 500 to go! Love stories and movies will never get old, and I am so thankful that there are brilliant authors and screenwriters out there!!!
