Hello!

Today I’ve watched two movies which were influenced by an other movie I’ve watched yesterday evening at the cinema.                                                                                                                 centralintelligencesmall

Central Intelligence, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. I love these two!

I’ll start off saying that I’m no movie expert, and everything you will read in this blog is just my personal opinion.

I chose to see this movie because I knew that I would LAUGH, and I’m so happy I did because it didn’t let me down, in fact I couldn’t STOP LAUGHING.

Dwayne is hilarious, because they dressed him so ridiculously I was in tears; and you know they say girls/women change when they are around old friends and they just start acting like they were in high school again?  Ladies and Gentleman: Dwayne Johnson as Bob Stone!

If you’ve seen the movie, I hope you know what I’m talking about but in case you just don’t know or remember…SPOILER ALERT!

Robert Weirdicht a.k.a. Bob stone (D. Johnson) is a CIA Agent, which is so hard to believe when you see him with “his pal” The Golden Jet a.k.a. Calvin Joyner (K. Hart) as he acts like he is his BFF when Calvin remembers him only as the unlucky kid in school.

Needless to say Kevin Hart was FUN, he always is and I enjoyed the funny cut scenes they added at the ending of the movie.

As I’m currently watching / finishing The Secret Life of the American Teenager I was surprised to see Megan Park (Grace Bowman in TSLOTAT) , as a waitress AND a young Molly Ringwald showing up on tv as Samantha Baker in Sixteen Candles, which is Bob’s favorite movie and while I was watching the movie I didn’t have a clue of what he was talking about.

So I got home and Googled “16 candles” since I’ve never heard about the movie before, then I saw that The Breakfast Club is correlated to it because of the same genre and protagonist actress, Molly Ringwald, and obviously I’ve heard about that movie but never watched it before.

BIG MISTAKE!

Well, after googling Sixteen Candles I’ve watched it and I think this is the mother of the Teen Movies, although I’m already used to that kind of plot, I enjoyed it and since it was from the 80’s I think that if I were a teenager back then it would have been one of my favorite movies, yeah I’m like Bob LOL.

After watching Sixteen Candles I was very curious to see this legendary Breakfast Club that every TV Show mentions at least once or twice (I have proof The Breakfast Club references).

This movie is 1 hour and 30 something minutes long, it was the longest 1 hour and 30 minutes of my life!

The plot is really slow and the first 30 minutes of the movie is just them in this library getting bored and getting ME bored even more!

But I said to myself: ok, it’s an 80’s movie, just give it a try and finish it so you won’t be one of those people who has never seen these classics.

The movie was boring -sorry- but it gets better when they finally sit in circle and talk about being different from each other but every single one is stressing about something in their life, etc. you already know anyway how these kind of movie ends.

I’m glad I did watched it until the end because I realized how much I did miss in my life. What I mean with that and “Big Mistake”is:

I missed all these references to this movie and I wish I did see it when I was younger so I could understand Lizzie McGuire‘s episode or How I Met Your Mother quotes and costumes dedicated to it.

I admit, it would have been more fun if I knew!

So if you have never seen The Breakfast Club or Sixteen Candles be sure to do so or like me you’ll miss all the jokes and quotes roaming around movies and TV shows.

Sorry if this post was really long but everything was connected to something and I had to write it down 😛

Hope you enjoyed and I hope I haven’t bored you as the movie bored me, but as I said, it was worth it!

SO, enjoy your day or have a good night!

Easter baking

Welcome to my baking world!
I started my passion for baking 3 years ago and since then every festive days I would do something special and
themy (if that’s a word).

This easter I didn’t want to do the classic chick, egg or bunny thingy so I thought about gardening because of the “easter Egg hunt” and this is what I came up with :

2016-03-28-01.11.11.jpg.jpg

My family really liked the idea and the cupcakes, of course.
Apart from the cupcakes I spent my easter with my family watching a finished tv series that I never ended, which is “Chuck” ♡ I LOVE it ♡
And in the meantime I was working on a figure made of clay, but that is a story that I’ll write about further on.
Around evening time we went to the movies and saw The Divergent series: Allegiant and if you have read the book like me, you would know the frustration about all these differences.

Anyways I hope you had a lovely easter, spent it with the people you love the most, as every festive day should be, in my opinion 🙂
Good night beautiful people,
Michelle 😘

I went to the movies :)

Hello! 

As you read from the title, I went to the movies to see Kung Fu Panda 3.
20151217_201224.jpg  20151217_201239.jpg

I’ve been a fan since the first movie in 2008, so hilarious, even though this one is not as funny as the others, but I think it’s because while waiting for this one I’ve seen other animations funnier than this one.

To be really honest with you I really think that nowadays animations are more for grownups than children, don’t get me wrong they are for children of course, but adults can actually understand the true meaning behind these wonderful cartoons.

I started to write this post with a purpose to do Who Am I 2.0 or as a normal human being would say: a follow up to my older post “Who Am I?”

Now you may be wondering, what does Kung Fu Panda 3 have to do with all of this?

Well, little SPOILER ALERT ahead.

In the movie, Po (the Panda) is faced to go in battle with Spirit Warrior a.k.a. Kai and to defeat him Po has to master his Chi, which is this energy that comes withinside you and in order to do that you need to learn Who you are. So off he goes with his biological father and learn how to be a REAL Panda.

At the end of the movie he does master his Chi of course, but not the way he thought he would be. So yeah, it made me think that one day I would discover more things about Who I am, things I never knew or things I am no more just through experience and through time I guess.

If ever you are lost and don’t know what you are doing with your life, hang on and that lightbulb.jpeglight bulb will appear into your mind! Don’t be like me, don’t worry too much 😉

Take care,

Michelle
