Review : Singin’ in the Rain (1952)

Singin’ in the Rain tells us about how to become a famous film production with actor and actresses that had a talent. This era made Silent Pictures with the theme of glorious kingdom, plot, background,  costume, etc.

In 1920’s, Silent Pictures was succeed because adapting sound had not been found, when W.B. found it, they’re trying to introduce a Talking Pictures to public. Then, they made a movie “The Dueling Cavalier”. But, Talkie Pictures had many critics, one of them was it could not attract audience. In progress, Cathy, Lockwood, and Cosmo had a new idea to change the title of it. It named “The Dancing Cavalier”  because of  it had singing and dancing. The conflict was Lina Lamont could not sing as well as Cathy, so they lip-sync it. Lina was angry and mad in the production which made her a fool who cannot sing and dance. Lina told that she has full power in this production.

Singin’ in the Rain showed us that Hollywood felt the glorious within, because in the adding of Sing and Dance like a beautiful sonnets in Shakespeare’s works. Gene Kelly is different style with Fred Astaire who had a style as well as Charlie Chaplin.

Review : Beauty and The Beast (2017)

Before I see the movie, I read the top critics at Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB, YouTube and others videos. And I must watch to prove it. So, I don’t like waiting and queueing when it’s premiere for first week, then I had to wait until the end of month.

I disappointed with the concept of remix disney classic and original Jean Cocteau or French live action 2014, the actress was Lea Seydoux. The concept of storyboard, the tragedy of rose is gone. Character designer are falling down, the added characters, LeFou made Gaston’s not as well as Disney classic and Lefou’s character in original. Belle’s father in classic was an idiot and failure, in original was bankrupt, then I don’t know his character in this movie. Neither classic nor original Belle’s have a gut to out from Beast’s castle, but Belle’s 2017 have power to go out from the castle. And costume was hillarious just for the main character, when I see Les Misèrables Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman the costume was mixed as well as the others. I must excited and proud for the editing. Yeah, I know the aesthetic novels or based on books not same when it’s becoming movie but you do you must know well the characters how it’s created, either you remakes in live action or animation.  And I would be gladly waiting for interview of director where his point of view to create or remix the movie.

And I gladly when Emma Watson doesn’t accept the casting actress for La La Land movie. I don’t wanna have negative thinking but imo I don’t think it’s gonna win Oscar if she casted. 

My Rate : 6 out of 10

Review : The Happy Prince 

‘Will you not stay with me one night?’

The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde 

Well, I really like 2 of 5 Stories which were The Happy Prince also Nightingale and Red Rose…. It’s been adorable stories that made me wanna read ever after. Yeah ! Oscar Wilde kills their main character in all tales… 5 tales in this book I meant. Boring in the end of Remarkable Rocket or I don’t get the meaning of stories huft.

I’d like to quoted “Swallow, Swallow, little Swallow … ‘will you not stay with me one night? said the statue prince. His sacrifice made his people happily ever after. Then, god who persuade angels to choose anyone who they picked to heavens. So, they choose the dead little swallow who dead after kissed the prince also they pick the happy prince. The society discussing who statue on top of there, then ? The selfish one !

The Nightingale who helped the handsome boy who wanna dance with princess if he has a red roses then nightingale sacrifice himself too.

Afterall, Oscar Wilde killed their main character all of it. But I wanna recommend that interesting stories were 3 of 5. The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and The Rose, The Selfish Giant

Review : The Secret Garden

” The Secret Garden ” by Frances Hodgson Burnett

I think the story was about magic. Magic was known as hero itself. The hero was within yourself. A boy name Colin, who lied on a bed for a whole time before he met his cousin, Mary Lennox. He depressed why he was born in this world also he was crying all the time. He told that he has lump on his back. He sitting on a wheel chair. Mary told him that he has thin body. I laughed when it came to the story

Secret garden made children should be motivated if they looked at characters. Sometimes, you need another people to bring happiness to your life. Look at Colin also Mary. If both of them didn’t meet each other. Mary was an annoying who couldn’t dressing a cloth herself. I glad if she didn’t told about a garden, a secret in ten years who didn’t open which the key was buried by Mr Craven because his wife’s death which made him stressed about her and he didn’t want to recall his memory. In the end, Mr Craven glad to see his child Colin could walk by himself. Both of them thinks that his wife made all this magic came through. And Mary was brought them here too.

It’s magnificent children classic to be told. And good book to adults. Yeah, I felt sad like a child when it in the end of chapter. You should be motivated like Colin.

nb  : It would be long if I read this book after and after
