Journey To The Center of The Earth


Journey to the Center of The Earth is an exciting movie made in 2008, a recreation of the Movie and Book that Jules Verne wrote in 1864. The first movie was filmed in 1959, USA and directed by Henry Levin. The second movie filmed in 1978, Spain and directed by Juan Piquer Simón called Viaje al centro de la Tierra. In 2008 a director named Eric Brevig recreated one of the most famous stories of Jules Verne among a few other novels such as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870) and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873).

The movie stars Brendan Fraser as Trevor Anderson, Josh Hutcherson as Sean Anderson and Anita Briem as Hannah Ásgeirsson in which they take vacation to find Trevor’s lost brother who went missing while following clues to the book “Journey to the Center of he Earth”.

The question which fills all our minds is, Is this world real? Are there more than magma in the center of the earth? Questions of the unknown is still greater then the answers. This movies is great to watch with adults or kids.

Movie Review: Red Riding Hood

A few nights ago I watched Red Riding Hood, a remake of an old children’s story with a twist. The directer of Twilight, Catherine Hardwicke, has created a subtle medieval inspired tale of a girl who’s village is terrorized by a wolf but you be surprised to see who he really is….

A romantic story endures between the lines of dangerous yet thrilling plot of good verses evil. Truth is do you know how to tell which one is really good or evil? Red Riding Hood (Valerie played by Amanda Seyfried) with few known actors such as Gary Oldman, Virginia Madison, Lucas Haas, Billy Burke from Twilight Sagas and many more. There is a lot to learn from the movie, just as much as the story.

Movie Review: Jumping The Broom

This movie is full of witty comedic adventure of a couple’s wedding. The drama of bringing two families into one household, one wedding, and the making of one dis-functional family. Sabrina (played by Paula Patton) and Jason (played by Laz Alonso) meet after minor car accident which sky rocketed a relationship of powerful love and understanding, yet they are tested by family. Another trial during the movie is the tradition of “Jumping The Broom.”

Which Mrs. Taylor explained the tradition from their ancestors, mostly done in ceremonies since slavery. But as researched, this tradition was also performed in Africa, Europe including Scotland, Hungary and Gypsy. Historically originated in Wales “broom-stick weddings” used among the Romani Gypsies in Wales. And this tradition has traveled different diverse cultures. The symbolism of “Jumping The Broom” is translated in many different parts of the world, such as “leap of faith.” You can look up more the meaning of the phrase in Wikipedia: Jumping The Broom.

This movie is must-see movie for both couples and families to laugh and enjoy the wonderful journey that each character go through and come together as family. Also Starring Angela Bassett as Mrs. Watson, Loretta Devine as Mrs. Taylor, Magon Good as the sexy Blythe, comedic Tasha Smith as Shonda, Mike Epps as Willie Earl, Romeo as Sebastian and many many more outstanding actors. Hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did!!

Elena Undone………Does Soulemetry exist?

This movie is the perfect example of love…real love. Not the mushy ‘I love you’ and then nothing comes out. “Elena Undone” is played by mainly two women Necar Zadegan as Elena and Traci Dinwiddie as Peyton, who fall in love at the wrong time. Finally following their hearts, but you watch their struggle with the truth that the heart was crying out for.
Have you ever truly walked by someone and having the feeling you know them somehow…Then seeing them again somewhere else till it seems they are everywhere. The underlined messages when you finally speak to them. This movie inspires and stirs that emotion or thought. The best way to describe is have you met your soul mate? If so, would you let them go?
I was looking for the dictionary meaning of soulemetry when I came across one blog called My Soul Undone. The blogger wrote inspiring piece on the movie, passionate in her words while describing the movie. To my readers, I dare you to watch this movie and take a look in your own hearts, listen!!!
