Fall Premiere 2012` Revolution


I hadn’t heard about this show until I logged onto Hulu today and saw that the pilot episode was available for viewing. Being the TV-aholic I am, I had to at least watch the preview, just to find out what the show was about.

REVOLUTION

SUMMARY: Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.

Rewind ` What A Girl Wants


This is a new feature I’ll be doing every once and while. Have you ever had a movie that you remember loving, then you watch it years later and look at it completely different? That’s what this is going to be. I’ll be watching movies that I haven’t seen in at least a year (or that I can’t remember the last time I watched it), and comparing my remembrance of it to what I thought about it afterwards.

What A Girl Wants

Starring: Amanda Bynes & Colin Firth
Rating: PG
Release Date: April 3, 2003

SUMMARY
An American teenager learns that her father is a wealthy British politician running for office. Although she is eager to find him, she realizes it could cause a scandal and cost him the election.

Thoughts Before
Really my main remembrance of this movie is the fact that it has Colin Firth in it. Also that this was a movie that hit incredibly close to home. As someone who was raised by a single parent I identified with Daphne’s character wanting to find the missing link in her family. More than anything I think my attachment to the story made me love this movie. I remember loving the Daphne character, and watching her put her own spin on everything made this movie completely worth watching.

I’m pretty sure this was one of the first on DVD commentaries I ever listened to.

Thoughts After
I actually forgot how much I enjoy this movie. As I watched it, my attachment to Daphne and her storyline with her dad never moved. One thing I noticed different was that I was more interested in the Daphne&Henry relationship, than the Daphne & Ian relationship.

Ian was a great addition to the cast, but I think that even if they hadn’t given Daphne a love interest, it still would have been a really good movie.

Rewatchablility
Excellent. I think it does a great job holding your attention even if you seen it before, and that the message continues to hold true whether you watch it once, or fifty times.

Would you watch it more than once a year?
This was one of those movies that has stayed on my shelf through all of my moves. Though I hadn’t watched it in ages, I could never bring myself to get rid of it. So I would say Yes, this movie is one I would (and should) watch more than once a year.
