I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Netflix’s All The Light We Cannot See trailer that just dropped a few weeks ago. If you have been around this blog for a while, you know how much I absolutely adore All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It was, in fact, one of the very first books that I reviewed, and without a doubt, one of the first historical fiction that sparked my interest in the genre.Continue reading “All The Light We Cannot See Trailer, Release Date And Cast”

5 Best Book To Film Adaptations
There are very few things in this world that terrifies a bookworm as much as book to film adaptations do. No, we are not being nitpicky–it is actually rare for us to come across a book to film adaptation that is neither a complete mess nor goes off track from the source material.

The Family Madrigal: How Encanto Represents Generational Trauma
In my previous movie review of Encanto, I talked about how the magic of the family Madrigal wasn’t their ability to make flowers bloom or move mountains; their real magic was the way they overcame generational trauma and learned to see each other for their true worth.Continue reading “The Family Madrigal: How Encanto Represents Generational Trauma”
Movie Review: The Magic Of ‘Encanto’
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with all things Disney. But I can’t remember a single movie that has enchanted me the way Jared Bush and Byron Howard’s Encanto did.
