IT ♡ movie review + thoughts

full disclaimer that these are just my own personal opinions towards the movie. i have seen the original and plan to read the novel fairly soon in the future, and saw the newer adaptation yesterday. therefore, it’s pretty fresh in my memory and i have a lot of things that i wanted to say so i am making this review. please feel free to disagree with me if you want to, but also please respect that these are my own personal opinions.


First things first, I kind of want to start using proper capital letters and stuff when I blog because my fingers naturally type this way and it felt forced to continue writing in lowercase letters. Sorry for the change, but I guess that’s what 3/4 months of inactivity does to you. Secondly, today I’m here with a full length review of the movie “It”, which came out on the 8th for the UK (I think.)

As a horror movie addict, it was only natural that I wanted to go and see the new version in the cinemas. Regretfully, I will admit that I only watched the original a few days prior because I wanted to be sort of prepared for what was going to be in store for me when I went to watch the new version. I went to watch it with my Dad yesterday (September 9th, the cinema was pretty packed because it was the day after release), and I had a lot of things that I wanted to say about the movie. So, I decided to make a review and kind of keep my series of reviews going. I planned on making a review for Dunkirk, but decided against it.

So, without further ado, here are my thoughts on the 2017 remake of Stephen King’s, “IT”. As always, there’s a spoiler warning so if anything gets spoiled for you, it’s your own fault!

deep breaths.

exams are finally over.

i haven’t been on krdramas in over like 3 months which is insane- but for good reason. i honestly just did not have the time or motivation to sit down and write a post about how i feel, just to kind of validate that i am still a blogger, and that i am still alive.

well, yes, i’m alive, and yes, i’m still blogging. not always on here, but i’m always around. exams have finished, as said earlier, and i could not be happier about it. there were exams that i feel like could have been better, but i’m just hoping i’ve done enough to pass through nicely. fingers crossed.

i’ve been catching up on many tv shows lately and also slithered back into my xmen phase. honestly, can you blame me? the xmen movies are so freaking good. honestly, i haven’t dedicated my time to reading the comics yet, but i definitely want to in the future. will put it on my to-do-list.

while i’ve been gone i have also binge-watched all of the seasons of game of thrones. honestly why did i ever put off watching it? it’s seriously so good?

oh- and i also went to harry potter world. expect a video about that because it’s in the works and i’m proud of it.

just thought i’d pop by and say, hello, yes, i’m here. alive and breathing. exam free and fine. i hope you’re all doing well !


heart to heart.

you know, i read a story somewhere from a woman who said something along the lines of: “i am suicidal. but it’s not what you think.” she had a normal life, wasn’t harming herself, wasn’t particularly in a hard situation…it was just a constant feeling of “if i died, i wouldn’t mind,” and “wow, i actually feel like being dead would be easier.”

the fact that people from my school probably read my blog to screenshot and make fun of in group chats is the only reason why i felt hesitant to talk about this. but, honestly, i don’t really care- i use my blog to vent and to talk and so i will. today, on the 4th of april, i decided and completely came to the conclusion that i am suicidal. and it’s honestly not what you think.

hello, bridgnorth.

welcoming back the good old “hello…” series i started a while back, i decided to make a post dedicated to a trip i took a few days ago, (well, last weekend!) when me and my family packed up our necessities and travelled down to bridgnorth to visit a family member, and take photographs for my sister.

like always, bridgnorth never fails to leave me with a sentimental feeling in my stomach. honestly, i’m not too sure what it is about the place that makes me feel so warm and nostalgic, but i’ve been going there to visit my nan for as long as i can remember, and no matter how many times i visit, the effect will always be the same.

of course, bridgnorth has literally nothing to offer; i was actually shooketh when i found out that bridgnorth had a cinema! a cinema! wow, they’re really putting themselves out there!

but, beyond the fact that the only people who live there are old people and small families, and that the shops are small and antique and no matter where you turn there is always a super cute dog, which is the best thing ever, i actually really do love bridgnorth. would probably never voluntarily live there on my own (i do think i’d die of boredom if i did so), but still, i love the place. so, on my journey, i took a few pictures to upload onto instagram (some are already up there, some are dying in my camera roll!) and so i thought i’d share- as tradition- for the third (or fourth, who knows) installment of “hello…”!

louis newland forced me to write this-

he asked me to make a post about him so that’s what i’m doing. i told him he wasn’t my friend today but really he is, so, sorry louis. also i don’t know what to write about him because i honestly don’t know him at all, we’re just in the same engineering class, we’ve spoke like 3 times and to be honest i didn’t even know he knew who i was.

but yeah. sometimes engineering is dead and louis makes it funny. thanks. you make engineering that much more enjoyable. thanks for not being mean to me + actually talking to me sometimes because a lot of the time people just ignore me and it’s actually really sad

hi, let’s chat about my book + other stuff nobody really cares about.

woah– i’ve been kind of mia off blogging for a while, and there’s no excuse, really. i’ve just been busy with school + other things to actually want to sit down and write something on here. it felt kind of forced, which sucks, because blogging should come naturally. having been doing it for like 3 years, you think it would just come naturally to me, but sometimes, it doesn’t. so i pushed it under the rug, for far too long, and now i’m here to catch up and chat.

one of the things that was a lot more important than blogging was obviously school- i’ve actually finished everything i needed to do and now i can relax over the holiday- but, one major thing is that i’ve been really working on my book, and honestly- it’s going places.

and i’m probably very biased, but this book is a masterpiece. and i’m so excited to finish.

TBR february 2017

as said in my “things to do in 2017” post, i really want to take up reading a bit more throughout the year, and since january was my “test month” where i basically mourned the departure of 2016 and welcomed 2017 with hesitant arms, i decided that why not make february the month where my reading hobby kicks back in?

i remember as a kid, i was always an avid reader and to be honest, i still am, although it depends on the book i am reading. nonetheless, i want to create a list of books that i want to read and hopefully finish for the end of february and i thought for my fellow book lovers, i should share my list + you could give me more recommendations or something like that.

so without further ado, here is my tbr list for february 2017.
