1. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. Based on the graphic by Frank Miller who wrote and co-directed with Robert Rodriguez A dame to Kill For stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis and Eva Green.

If you’re looking for violent, bloody, exciting movie to see this weekend this is exactly that, I would advice to watch the first Sin City film first. They are a lot of die-hard fans of the novel who been dying for a sequel. Does it have what it takes to take the number 1 spot away from TMNT we’ll see.

2. If I Stay

Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident, killing her family puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she have to decide if she should go with her family or stay and live a life more difficult than she should ever imagine. If I Stay follow the trend of popular YA novels that being adapted in to movies. Check out my thought on the book at A penny for my thoughts (If I Stay). Directed by R.J Cutler and screenplay with the author of the book Gayle Forman and Shauna Cross, who also wrote the screenplay for What to expect when you expecting and Whip It. If I Stay stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Jamie Blackley and Mireille Enos.

If I Stay is a really emotion story, it has something that all young adult can relate to. It has heart, family love. If your planning on seeing this film make sure bring a box of tissues. Does it have what it takes to go up against TMNT and The Guardians, yes it does and it wouldn’t be a surprise if If I Stay comes out on top this weekend? 

There it is, the top two movies coming out this weekend, will they be enough to trump TMNT and The Guardians out of the top two? We’ll have to wait and see. In the meanwhile comment below the  what movie you’re going to see and which ones you think is going to take the top spots.

A penny for my thoughts (If I Stay)

image

I hate having high expectations when reading a book because I always end up getting disappointed and that’s what happened with this book. Its overrated. I expected to ball my eyes out while reading but that moment never came. With that said, was it a good book? Of course it is, matter of fact it was one of the easiest books I’ve read in a while.

Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?

Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it’s the only one that matters.

If I Stay is a heartachingly beautiful book about the power of love, the true meaning of family, and the choices we all make. -Goodreads.

If I Stay was beautifully written there wasn’t a chapter in the book that fell flat, the words flow easily. After a car accident left Mia floating through life and death she has to make a decision if she should go (with her parents) or if she should stay. During her decision their are numerous flashback with her family, friends and,of how she fell in love.

I loved all the flashback it showed you who Mia was and why she was the person she is. Why she played the cello while her parents and boyfriend were punk rockers. It showed the strength and depth music have on someone’s life.

I knew which choice she was going to make in the middle of the book, I predicted it, that doesn’t make the book predictable. I’m just really attentive. Knowing what going to happen didn’t ruin the book for me cause I like the way in which it happened.

If I Stay pulled on my heart but I just didn’t feel a connection with Mia and her parents, or her boyfriend. It’s a good book but I just didn’t feel a connection.

If I Stay is being adapted into a film which is being release on August 22. The trailer is out now and it looks really nice, I already feel like the connection with the trailer.

Have you read the book, I would love to know what your thoughts on it? If you haven’t read the book are you going to see the movie?
