The Zookeeper's Wife. It was very good but also tearful and heartbreaking. 4 out of 4 stars.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I saw Pirates of the Caribbean 5 and of course it was great (at least in my bias opinion). I love Captain Jack Sparrow and though I am not a big fan of the fantasy genre, there is something about the misfits and the rebels, the ones who are willing to break the rules for all the wrong reasons sometimes, that I find very appealing. It was funny and witted, the hardest part it is to create something that makes you want to comeback for more, and this movie does that for me. 5 Stars

I sae King arthur two days ago. I enjoyed the twist from the original tale. It really was quite different from what I expected. I thoroughly enjoyed Arthur's humour. He had an endearing personality. And he was never a royal brat who knew what was expected of him and just did it because he had to, but was a lad with a hard life in a brohel where he learnt to protecr his own, and as such ends up protecting his kingdom. The how and the why he became who he became felt more original to me than a prive who just accepted his duty... never mind graphics that make you think you are watching a game, it was a great movie. To all you celtic fans out here, try it!

I saw Mulan last. It's amazing and I've seen it more times than I can count. I'd give it 9 out of 10, and keep watching it forever.

The last movie I saw was a rewatch of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. 5/5! It had been so long since I saw it, I'd forgotten how much it made me laugh.

Baby Boss gets a 4 out of 4 stars! It had us laughing from beginning to end. Previews looked a little hokie, which it was in some ways, but very funny.

I watched The Zookeeper's Wife. It was beautiful and sad at the same time. Hmm.. Last movie that I watched was Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Well, I was expecting more from the film because it was directed by Tim Burton but I was a bit disappointed by the outcome.

I love movies, especially ones that add meaning and values to my life. Among them and latest one is John Gospel on Jesus of Nazareth. I rate it 4 out of 4 stars.

I recently saw Annabelle Creation in theaters. I was disappointed with the first Annabelle since it was not very scary, but the new one actually had some tense scenes. Like most modern horror movies, (for those who wish to see it), it follows the predictable horror sequence and uses cliche means of creating the scary atmosphere. Overall, I'd give it a 7/10

The last movie that I saw was Glory Road. It's a very inspiring movie that teaches an excellent lesson to abhor racial discrimination. I rated it 9/10.
