Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Amazing movie. Or, maybe I should say it was fantastic? I very much enjoyed it.

Kinda surprised about the amount of younger kids though. They had their parents with them so, of course, they had all the right to see it and I’m definitely not complaining in any way. Hope they liked it. I’m just a bit surprised, partly because the movie is in English and although it had Swedish subs, based on my experience with kids in those ages, I’d think they’d have a bit of a problem keeping up with the language. Also, it’s not really written for a younger audience. Not that young, at least. Teenage and up feels more fitting. But, as I said, if they liked it that’s great!

I’m a big Harry Potter-fan and I’ve read all the books – in Swedish, although I bought Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in English so that will be my first by J.K. Rowling to read in the original language – and watched all the movies so I was really looking forward to this one. It did reach my expectations. Another surprise there. It was exciting and funny. The animations was fantastic. I honestly had no idea Johnny Depp would be in it or Colin Farrell for that matter. Eddie Redmayne fitted the role of Newt Scamander perfectly and I think Dan Fogler absolutely deserves some credit, too.

I would love to see even more movies in this universe.

Deadpool

So much bad language! Fucking awesome!

Seriously, I went to the cinemas yesterday evening to finally watch the movie and it was just so rad. I admit that I was a little afraid it would be overrated. There’s been so much talk about it going around. Even if you try you can’t really help but get high expectations and I’m happy to say the whole movie lived up to mine.

As a girl I notice people sometimes try to keep the jokes slightly cleaner and almost tip toes around certain subjects as to avoid offending me. Well, I’m not offended. And I can absolutely do dirty jokes. So the dialogue and the not so discrete sexual puns had me laughing through pretty much the entire movie. Everything was delivered on point.

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool is like a match made in Heaven. Or in Hell, depending on how you view it, I guess. Only problem is I will never be able to see him as anything else now. He is Deadpool to me. I’ll just be confused as to when Deadpool became an actor in Hollywood.

Colossus opening his mouth and sounding like a russian caught me off guard.

A big thanks to my dad for making me listen to so much different music while growing up. I love when I actually get all the music references in a movie, no matter what era it’s from.

Also, to all the guys out there. You should learn a little something from Mr. Pool. There’s a big difference between being sexy in a funny way as to just being disgusting.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Watched the movie last night before going to bed. I haven’t read the books and I honestly weren’t planning to, either. The reason I ended up watching the movie was Ellie Goulding’s song Love Me Like You Do. I heard it and absolutely loved it. When I looked it up and saw it was on the soundtrack for Fifty Shades of Grey I got curious. Even more so after I watched the music video. So I asked a friend who I knew had seen the movie if it was worth watching and she said yes.

Still, this is so not my type of genre. But I have to admit I enjoyed it. The story was different and actually pretty fascinating. Jamie Dornan is a great actor and he does an amazing job in his role of Mr. Grey. I also think Mr. Grey could totally rock being a vampire. Just a random thought. It weren’t as pornographic as I first thought it would be. Which was a pleasant surprise.

Not sure I will ever read the books, though.
