That’s right! I saw ‘The Peanuts Movie’ twice already

As you know, I am a huge fan of the Peanuts. I love Charlie Brown so much. His heart is so warm and his optimism remains despite all his shortcomings. I was hoping this movie would capture that and it did beautifully. I liked it so much, I saw it twice.

It takes a lot of the simple messages all people go through and still make it relevant. I look at the classic scenes we grew up with watching the gang (dancing, kite flying, red-haired girl) and it still employed that into the story. The animation was really cute and the voice acting was superb.

The message of the movie was simple and at the end, I felt real good. My eyes watered. I was happy. This is why I love Charlie Brown and Snoopy and all the gang. They show us the innocence in the tough times we deal with daily. I recommend this movie. So good!

How do you explain the Bible to someone who doesn’t know what it is?

On Saturday, I got to a free screening of the above movie. It’s really fascinating and I recommend you to go check out the trailer and see it. With the Twin Towers no longer in existence, it tugged on my heartstrings to see a movie about it and having the towers as a celebration of life.

With the idea of the towers in my mind still as I went into Sunday School, the topic of the Bible was brought up in preparation of the day’s sermon. The question asked simply was: “How would you explain the Bible to someone who doesn’t know what it is?”

That’s not an easy question. As easy as it is to talk about the Bible among Christians, it’s so hard to talk about it with someone who doesn’t know what it is. Even among Christians, do we actually sit down and talk and discuss what exactly this famous book really is about? We know what’s in it but what value does it hold?

Yet somehow, someway, the image of the movie and the actual story couldn’t leave my head. Why was this so important to me at this time? Then in my heart and in my mind, and possibly through God, I felt that the building was my starting point to answering this question.

I went to the Hollywood Bowl to see E.T. with the LA Philharmonic

As you know, I love E.T. I love the movie a lot. So when I found out that they were going to show the movie and have the LA Philharmonic Symphony play the entire score during the movie, I was on it!

This is my second time at the Hollywood Bowl. In fact, it was almost a year ago I saw the Simpsons there. But this was something special too.

What was really special about this was that I was surprised by the reaction of the crowd during the movie. Either these people have never seen it before or they like to laugh at everything funny. Either way, it was really pleasant to watch the movie while the orchestra perform. It felt so smooth and flawless. During the movie, I didn’t even really notice it was a live orchestra performing during the movie.

There were two cheers during the film and both of them were when the bicycle flying scene.

I really had fun. I like these. I want to go to another one!

‘Straight Outta Compton’ was exceptionally wonderful

Yesterday I got to see this movie after trying to find an opportunity for a free screening. I think I want to see it again. It was that great.

I have been a fan of rap since I was in my early teens and this group was so big to my passion for the genre. I wasn’t huge on N.W.A., but I was a fan of the products of the group, especially Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. And I actually knew a lot about the history of the group’s origins and all the way to their split. What made this film great was that they packed 10 years of history into a two-hour film.

Getting an inside look into the origins of the group and their early years on tour was something that was done real well. I had never seen anything like that and how they portrayed everything there was great. I look at the actors and their portrayals of the rappers was so good. I particularly really like the portrayal of Ice Cube and Eazy-E in the movie.

I got to see The Rock at the San Andreas premiere

I was already excited to see this movie but when I found out that I could get free passes to see San Andreas early and The Rock was hosting it, I was on board. I had always wanted to see a movie at the Chinese Theatre and here we are. I got there at around 9:45 which was good timing considering the long line that had already started. I got a wristband for the handprint ceremony later. Yes!

When we got into the theatre, The Rock came and greeted people with selfies, Periscope and submitted Q&As from Twitter and from fans in the crowd. He was so cool, making jokes and just having a good time. I really like the guy and he is a great entertainer. Just being the presence of the legend was great and I tried to take as many pictures as I can from it.

CHECK OUT THE PICTURES HERE.
