I could never feel beautiful no matter how hard you try to appease me. Because you never gave me the chance to control myself and have the freedom to let myself be beautiful.

Over Filled

This year has been extensively demanding. Yet, I could not say it is the worse. Somehow, when I try my hardest to te recall every conversation and emotion. I would say that never was I felt cheated. Life would go on. The future would hold something indefinite and quite daunting, in the most. But yesterday and today are memories that I would not hold on but would gladly learn from. Experience, you have taught me well and I exoect you will teach me more. I will not say thank you yet for my road to nirvana is still long and betraying. Nevertheless, you’ve molded me to know myself and to be aware of an endless of things. As I would always say to my friends. I would forever be grateful.

Movie Review: Divergent

Fans of the franchise here is the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Divergent in in the movie theaters! Before I get to down to having my say with the movie. I’ll give you and overview of the plot (if you have not read the book/series yet).

Beatrice Prior (played by Shailene Woodley) is brought up in a world of selflessness and plainless. Were helping others is a trait which she has difficulty conforming to. So when the Choosing Ceremony arrived, to stay and be different or to leave and find herself are the choices she needs to decide. She’s casted into a world she doesn’t know and where her self is being tested to breaking points. Is her selflesness enough to let her be called dauntless?

To be perfectly honest with you guys, I watched the movie without having read the book. Yep, it’s kind of new to me since it’s very much against one of my rules. Somehow, it helps me to be objective about it. I’m not saying, I want you to do the same thing. But it helps.

So without further ado. Here’s my take.

Casting wise, they have an amazing cast. Most especially when you put Rose… ehem, I mean Kate Winslet, in a movie. You’re going to have a different perception with the movie. They did bring out the best in what each actor understands with every character they perform. So, it’s a thumbs up for me on that point.

Effects, set and costume are amazing as well. You get to see such immaculately pressed Erudite clothing, crisp black and whites of the Candor, striking oranges of the Amity, seductive and sleekness of the Dauntless and the plain greys of the Abnegation. So each faction can surely be distinguished from each other. 

The movie has a wonderful impact actually to nonfans of the franchise. If you’re just one of those people who wanted to know what makes those kinds of things click. Then this movie can very much pique your interest. I have not read the book nor am I a fan. But it was a great thrill for me.

Some fans may say that the movie very much lacked something from the book and that it was not able to catch their idea of what the book is. But maybe, all book franchises turned movies always have that kind of problem. Even the Harry Potter series (which was pretty much acclaimed by both book and movie) didn’t get to be so precise with the book. But somehow, making movies have some kind of secretive arithmetic screenplay formula to follow through with every movie they try to make. 

Yes, movies may bring books to visual experiences. But maybe there are some things that are best left to our imaginings. I wouldn’t say Divergent is the worst nor could I say it’s the best. But it’s a movie to my liking!

can’t you imagine it though?

ginny’s going through a questioning phase and her older brothers keep making sex jokes so she writes in her diary “what’s a clitoris?” and tom’s on the other side like “i am a dark lord but i have a duty to this poor girl”

are you trying to insinuate that Voldemort gave Ginny Weasley the sex talk
