Spice Up Your Life: Dune Part 2 – Book vs. Big Screen

Dune Part Two is here, promising to delve deeper into Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi saga. With a bit of scepticism, I went to watch it on the big screen. I’m not a big fan of Part 2 for successful movies. I was curious to see how closely the movie follows the book.

In today's fast-paced world of technological progress, the impact of video games, artificial intelligence (AI), and cutting-edge tech on filmmaking is more evident than ever before.

BOOK VS. TV SHOW: Lessons in Chemistry

The book should have a warning sign on it in the direction of - “The author assumes no liability for readers who lost sleep, skipped work, forgot to eat, or neglected childcare duties because they felt compelled to continue reading nonstop”.  All the above happened to me (except childcare). When I finished reading, I knew it was too good of a book not to be turned into a script. My only question was, will it be a TV show or a feature?

Movie Night – Golda

In summary, if you’re interested in historical biopics and like dialogue-heavy dramas, this is definitely the movie for you to watch on Movie Night.

BOOK VS. FILM: Firefly Lane – The Case for Non-Linear Storytelling

After finishing the first season of "Firefly Lane," I couldn't resist sending a WhatsApp message to my daughter: " If you ever want to see what kind of teenager I was, you should check out 'Firefly Lane.' your mum was Kate during her teens and early twenties – the looks, behaviour, the whole package!" To my amusement, she responded with, "Not really my cup of tea for a TV show." I guess her reaction is just like what Kate's daughter, Marah, might say!

Lessons from Watching “Once Upon A Time” – Part 1

Once Upon A Time… A great wizard breathed life into the oldest fairy tales and made them come alive for generations of kids. Watching 7 Seasons of "Once Upon A TIme" taught me important lessons about Scriptwriting and storytelling in the 21st century.

5 Lessons from a Weekly Movie Review

You know how sometimes bad things turn to good when you look at them in perspective of time? Well, that’s what happened to me when I decided to commit to writing a weekly movie review. My first lesson was... How I can get out of non-supportive thoughts and turn them around.

Film Review – The Bucket List

In our family, there is a tradition of watching The Bucket List on December 31, just like others watch Love, Actually on Christmas day. This choice might cause a big debate, but I stand behind my opinion about this movie. and here's why....

Film Review – About Time

It’s easy to sneer on Richard Curtis’s work, but I cannot help falling for his rather self-indulgent romantic comedies. My level head might be crying ‘No,’ but my lopsided heart can’t help but say yes. For me, resistance is futile when it comes to his scripts and About Time is just another one of them.

Film Review – The Nice Guys

Sunday night is my hubby’s night to choose a movie in our place. Usually I suffer quietly at his choices. Imagine my surprise when out of the blue he came with this fun and enjoyable movie. I wanted to watch it again just for the brilliant lines and the great comedy in this action movie.

Film Review – The Bookshop

At first glance, The Bookshop might look to some audiences like Chocolat with books instead of chocolates, but this film is about a woman who moves to a small town and opens a shop is nothing like that romantic comedy.

5 Ways to Get More Comments on Your Blog

Once you start a blog, the next step is making sure your audience will respond to you and opening the channel for conversation to take place. The only way to it is by making sure that what you write inspires them to comment on your blog and express their ideas, knowledge and most of all allow them to express their VOICE!

Film Review – Holiday in the Wild

Anyone that knows me, knows I’m a sucker for rom-com and even Hallmark Channel movies. I don’t see anything wrong in having once in a while a proper cheesy movie that comes from “Never-Land” where you know exactly what would take place and when. Sometimes a girl needs some predictability.

Film Review – Knight & Day

If there is a “go-to” movie in our household that everyone enjoys no matter how many times we watch it, it’s this one. Not an easy feast to achieve when you have a young ultra-feminist sensitive, as my daughter, an action lover, like my hubby and a romantic soul like me.

Film Review – Dear Frankie

You know how you have that one small movie, that no one ever heard about, that you are totally in love with, and no matter how much you try to convince your friends and family how good it is, no one sees what you see in the movie? And then imagine after years that you try to convince people how great that movie is, you read that other experts think its also a gem, isn’t that a fantastic feeling?

Film Review – The Alibi (Lies & Alibis)

Movies that go straight to DVD or to very limited cinema showing, are usually not rated high, it’s as if the distributors didn’t think they are good enough and therefore try to get as much as possible from them. Therefore imagine my surprise when such a movie becomes so good it’s sometimes on repeat on our house. This is the case with The Alibi

Why No One Reads Your Blog

I often hear this cry… NO ONE READS MY BLOG! Believe in the famous sentence from “Fields of Dreams” “Build it and they will come!”, you’re in for a BIG SURPRISE… and not a good one… Todays’ marketing is based on Social Media and Social media is like a long-term relationship, not a one-night-stand.

Film Review – Saving Face

Long before Crazy Rich Asian there was Saving Face that gave us the pleasure of seeing another culture, and realizing that we are all humans sharing similar experiences, no matter from which background we come from.

Film Review – Last Holiday

There’s nothing like the holidays to make you turn to rom-com as a last resort to get over that hangover. Last Holiday fit that bill. It is a nice little rom-com, which packs an emotional punch. It is hard to balance these diverse elements, but the film does a good job of doing just that.

TV Review – The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel – Season 3

No one doubts that there is charm in the shows Amy Sherman-Palladino puts on. The same charm as any nostalgia piece sets can bring. Together with her trademark of rapid-fire dialogues, which can compete with Sorkin, but without the depth. You can fall in love and become addicted to it.

Film Review – Breathe

The real story of Breathe, is a love story. It’s the love story of Robin and Diana, it’s a love story to their life and legacy, produced by their son Jonathan Cavendish, and most of all it’s a love story to celebrating life and making the most out of what it gives you.

Film Review – Salt

If ever there were a competition on the best female kick-ass character, Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) would absolutely come up at the top 3. Angelina Jolie, for all intents and purposes, is James Bond in Salt, she never quite says: “The name is Salt. Evelyn Salt” but for all other aspects she is as close as you can get to a female James Bond.

Are You a Perfectionist

I have a confession, and it is hard for me to admit it… I am not a perfectionist. On the contrary, I’m sloppy, I never think till the end and I always have to come back and correct things I’ve done. If you suffer from this disease called perfectionism let me remind you. All perfectionists have one thing in common. You all achieve… NOTHING.

Film Review – Molly’s Game

We all know Aaron Sorkin can write. The one-man brilliance behind The West Wing, The Social Network, Moneyball The Newsroom and more, his confrontational style blends skill, smartness and, particularly, showiness in a way that leaves no question about his talent. But in Molly’s Game Sorkin has entered a new dimension, which is, directing and that’s a whole different ballgame.

Film Review – Dumplin’

Who would have thought that Dolly Parton would become an inspirational figure, but after watching Dumplin’ you’ll also rush out and get your hands on her songs to get inspired and confident, just like Willowdean in the above movie.

TV Review – Dead To Me

We all know the saying that a gun in the first act will fire in the third act. But what happens if the gun is used in the first act, how do you continue beyond it? This series shows you how. Dead to Me presents itself as a mystery show and sometimes maybe as a comedy, but it’s neither that nor that. It’s all about female friendship.

Film Review – Finding Your Feet

If the Book Club was a disgraceful example of how NOT to portrait the life of senior people, Finding Your Feet is a superb way of presenting it. When it comes to senior-bait cinema that glorifies the act of seizing the day and taking second chances in one’s golden years, the UK has the upper hand on anything that ever came out of Hollywood.

Film Review – Book Club

Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen can do nothing to rescue a mediocre script. As far as it goes, Book Club is a mostly painless ride, with a few laugh-out-loud moments, but as Peggy Lee memorably sang, “Is that all there is?”

Film Review – Akeelah and the Bee

As a heavy dyslectic person, watching movies about spelling is an act of masochism and humiliation. However, Akkelah and the Bee, is one of my all-time-favourite movies when I need a reminder that nothing is impossible.

Film Review – Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Sometimes it’s good to revisit old movies to see how well did they stand the test of time. Revisiting Mr. & Mrs. Smith proves that it is one of those movies that stand that test. Watching the movie years after the tabloid scandal of what took place “behind the scenes” and the creation (and fall) of BradJolina, the movie proves it still keeps its charm and fun.

Film Review – The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

There is a danger in period-dramas films. On one hand, they can feel like over-the-top escapist fantasies that transport the viewer to a simpler time, or explore societal concepts gone but that can inform our current experiences. On the other hand, they can sometimes feel dull and irrelevant, and also often promote conservative, controversial ideas.

TV Review – Jack Ryan – Season 2

The second season of the Amazon series starring John Krasinski, as Jack Ryan, keeps things exciting and entertaining while maintaining the high standard of writing as the first season. Jack, Jim, and the rest of their CIA buddies are back with a vengeance in Jack Ryan Season 2, and vengeance is not an exaggeration.

Film Review – Phenomenon

The other night my hubby and I were looking for something to watch that would answer both our needs and we stumbled on this movie. Though it's an “oldie” (from last century – 1996) we decided to give it a chance. It’s a movie that makes you think and wonder about the questions it carries even after “The End“ appears on the screen. Isn’t that a good reason to watch a movie?

Film Review – Kinky Boots

Whenever I would teach about Marketing 101 this movie would be the perfect example of what it means niche marketing and changing your product when your market has disappeared. The other great lesson we can take from this movie concerning marketing is that the key to your success is ASKING your target group what would they want and not deciding it for them.

Film Review – Late Night

By now you know I would watch Emma Thompson read the Telephone book (if it existed) and still enjoy and be hooked by her. But this time it’s the wonderful Mindy Kaling that gets the spotlight in this brutally piercing comedy. Late Night is a sharp and sincere comedy about sexism in broadcasting in the era of #MeToo and social media written and co-stared by Mindy Kaling.

Film Review – On Basis of Sex

This time it’s personal. Ruth Ginsburg is one of my heroes, she’s been a role model for me as long as I remember myself and from the moment I identified myself as a feminist. So getting two films in the same year about her was a real treat. What I loved about this movie was that it wasn’t trying to compete with the documentary that came out in the same year (RGB).

Film Review – Woman in Gold

Sometimes life is writing a better script than any movie can. Trying to capture that on the silver screen can become a risky adventure. In the case of Woman in Gold what saves the day is the performances of those real-life people

Film Review – The Road Within

The Road Within deserves praises just for the fact that it is a movie where mental health and “normal” life are being discussed. It is an attempt to remove the stigma on mental health and show us that beyond the psychological challenges those people face there are human beings with similar emotions dreams and desires as we all have.

Film Review – Pride

You know how some movies just catch your heart and “have you at “Hello”? Well, Pride is one of those movies. In dramatic terms, the strokes could hardly be broader. Playing to the widest possible audience, Pride employs reassuring cast and familiar Ealing comedy tropes in fine, broad-church fashion.

TV Review – Jack Ryan – Season 1

I really didn’t want to like this series. I even refused watching it. I couldn’t let go of my fan-girl to Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan, so you could understand my surprise when I liked it so much Reviving a known hero figure is always a tricky and delicate process. How do you adapt a character who was a symbol of a bygone era to a totally new political climate and audience preferences?

Film Review – Charlie Bartlett

I’m not a big fan of high schools comedies. Maybe it’s because high school is still a nightmare for me, even after 40+ years, or maybe because it feels immature (it’s high school for crying out loud) and in most cases a waste of my time. However, there are some exceptions whereby they managed to change the conversation from the high school into a thematic one.

Film Review – Dolemite is My Name

The best thing about biopic movies is that they educate you or at least get you curious to investigate an era or a person that the movie depicted. This is what happened to me after watching Dolemite is My Name. I have to admit that I wasn’t familiar with the term Blaxploitation. I had to go and research it and read more about the history of it. That on it’s own is a great proof for the significance of this movie.

Film Review – Vice

Growing up in a house where history was the main topic of conversation around the dinner table (my father being a History professor) loving biopic and historic movies comes as a second nature to me.

Film Review – Their Finest

You might say that there is “nothing new under the sun” when you watch this movie from a feminist perspective, but the fact that this movie was written (Lissa Evans), adapted (Gaby Schiappe) and directed (Lone Scherfig) by women shows that we did create some progress since the period this movie depicts. You need to be stone-cold heart not to fall in love with this movie.

Film Review – What We Did On Our Holiday

Growing up in Israel, death was never a topic to laugh about. It was a serious morbid topic we all had to deal with, even as children. As I grew up I chose to look at it in a different way, which was that we should celebrate the life the person had, not the moment of his or her death. I was happy to discover that this view is shared in this comedy.

TV Review – Good Omens

Let’s start by a confession – If I had to take only one author’s books to a deserted island it would be Terry Pratchett. Hearing that Good Omens was turned (finally) into a screen version got me into two minds. First I was delighted then I remembered other attempts to turn Pratchett’s books into a movie and how disappointed I was, but not this time.

Film Review – The Big Wedding

This should have been an easy one, a movie just down my alley, but strange things happen. My grandmother used to make ice cream saying: “What could go wrong if you have good healthy ingredients”. It was the worst ice cream you could imagine. The Big Wedding is just like my grandmother’s ice cream.

Film Review – Stan & Ollie

I was hesitant to watch Stan & Ollie. I didn’t want to shutter my childhood image of those two comedians who gave me my first taste in humor. What I found was a gently melancholic homage to this wonderful duo. It’s never quite as funny as might have been expected, but it tugs at the emotions throughout.

Film Review – Mr. Church

Mr. Church is a great example of a movie where audience liked it while critics and any screenwriter tore it to shreds. That’s the difference between watching a movie when you understand the craft and when you are blissfully ignorant and rely on how it makes you feel.

Film Review – Britanny Runs a Marathon

I HATE running to a point that I once said “I have a note from God that I’m not allowed to run… and I’m from Jerusalem, so that’s the real-deal”. So, running movies are not my thing, I’m too scared that it would convince me that I should run.

TV Review – Jane The Virgin

The minute I started watching "Jane The Virgin" I was hooked. It should not be considered as “fluff” or guilty pleasure. It is a masterpiece in creating a show that is both dramatic and funny by touching and discussing issues such as faith, immigration, abortion, sex and parenting.

Film Review – The Children Act

I’m a HUGE fan of Emma Thompson and in my book she is infallible. Add to it Stanley Tucci, it would always be a good reason to watch a movie. Though "The Children Act" has all the elements of a great movie, somehow I wasn’t moved by it.

TV Review – For All Mankind

I love What-If movies and alternate timeline stories with all its complications. For All Mankind has a brilliant premise and the execution of it is done incredibly well. The show presents an alternative history whereby the Soviets won the race to space and were the first ones to land on the moon.
