Movie Review - Taking My Parents To Burning Man


After going to the premier of this film, Burning Man has become a festival I'd like to go to at least once in my lifetime. It is an absolute marvel and a fusion of many things. Innovation, technology, music, fires (a no brainer, really.) basically a vibrant Las Vegas in a span of a couple days.

It looks like so much fun. This documentary is fantastic and very.... raw. Good shots.

Loved it!

Disclaimer: Someone I know made this film.

Whistler Eats: COWS Whistler


Cows is an fairly old establishment in Whistler. After a 15 min wait, we got to sample a few, then we picked Green tea (matcha) and chocolate in a Colourful sprinkle cone. It was really good! My mom really liked her chocolate one and I enjoyed my matcha one as well. Their ice cream is quite hard. Good to lick on (???). They've got lots of punny T-shirts like "Moomoolemon" & "Moocraft". The service was good and pretty quick once they got to us. I apologize there is no photo. Just trust me on it was good! Slightly pricey but it is a resort destination after all.

Would recommend this place!

Movie Review - How To Train Your Dragon 2


Pictures from Collider & Screenrant respectively 

My mom and I occasionally like to go to a movie theatre without picking a film beforehand and that's how we stumbled upon the first how to train your dragon which we both fell in love with. Of course, I was ecstatic to see the sequel. Sadly, it did not pull a Toy Story and be better than the first one.

Still entertaining and obviously lovely visuals but the pace was a little off. I also liked the story for the King himself than his son. Toothless was so darn cute despite the movie being a slight let down. I would totally recommend this movie to kids. It is an adventurous and fun film.

Movie Review - The Fault In Our Stars


       Back in the days, when I was a teenager, I really liked John Green. So I read the book TFIOS(short for The Fault In Our Stars) about a month after it came out. And on that day, it became one of my favorite books. Yes, I read it in one sitting. It was that good.

      Today, as a 2 decades year old, I'm telling you the movie was pretty damn good. Not perfect, but satisfactory. I just think that as I have matured, the story just seemed like it was for another age category. Which it is. It is what it is. YA is YA. One thing that I am going to nitpick about is that they changed the setting for one of my favorite parts of the book. Rude.

Shailene Woodley is a force to be reckoned with. I will be watching for her because she is extremely talented. Gus was okay.

Definitely a tear-jerker, and I can see it becoming the next "the Notebook", "A Walk To Remember".

Movie Rave - Godzilla IMAX


Dear god, what on earth was I doing instead of writing up a review for this absolutely beast of a movie? Someone punch me in the face. 

Godzilla was everything I wanted and more. As someone who has never seen a Godzilla film or know anything about Godzilla except it's a dragon/lizard giant, I loved it so much. Completely ecstatic and in awe. Such a visual adventure and so exhilarating and e p i c. I don't know how else to explain it. He restores balance.

Such a jaw dropping experience.  I highly recommend this movie.
