Her: One of the best films ever made.

Film & Nuance

Deviating from my usual content,I’ll review a movie that was shown last year (instead of current movies). I’d like to review Her because it has possibly become one of my favourite films and with a film that has dared to explore multiple different themes, Her will forever remain one of its kind. The fuzzy quirky relationship between Theodore(Joaquin Phoenix) and O.S. Samantha(Scarlett Johansson) encases the sci-fi perspective that reveals much about modern society and relationships within it. Her is unsettling, engaging,fun and dangerous all at the same time.It is complex to try and fit romance and sci-fi and philosophy into a single film, but Her unites them all with a heartwarming story, with subtle yet spontaneously real moments.In one conversation, Samantha catches Theodore offguard with ‘I can understand how the limited perspective of an unartificial mind might perceive it that way’ to Theodore’s surprise at her intuition. They both laugh…

Flaw(less)

Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you” – Unknown

Flaws are what make us human. Flaws are what make each and every one of us beautiful and unique. Instead of hating your flaws and hating yourself because of them, you should be accepting them. Why constantly put yourself down over something that we ALL have?

Stop hating yourself because of them. Don’t let them control you. You have to conquer them. As soon as you can learn to love and accept your own flaws, the happier you’ll be. Why? Because you will finally realize that you ARE beautiful. And that it’s okay to have them. If other people can accept your flaws, then you should too. However, throughout life, you will run into some people who can’t accept your flaws. But the only reason they can’t accept yours, is because they haven’t yet accepted their own.

First Books of 2015 — January

"Bethie's Place"

Hello to all my readers! I have chosen four books to start the year. They are:

Shopaholic To The Stars — Sophie Kinsella

Orphan Train — Christina Baker Kline

The Lemon Orchard — Luanne Rice

The Girls of August — Anne Rivers Siddons

Of the four books I’ve chosen, the only author new to me is Christina Kline Baker, so I’m excited to give it a try. What drew me to the book was the title and the plot. The other three authors I’ve read for years and enjoyed their writing styles.

To get a dialogue going between us, I have several questions:

1. Who’s your favorite author? Why?
2. What’s your favorite genre? Why? Do you read more than one genre? Which ones?
3. How do you choose a book? Author, cover art, plot?
4. Do you read more than one book at a time?
5. Do you read…

Deep Dark Hole

TurpsBlog

Who is to be blame? Should I blame myself or should I blame that woman or man. Sort of Confused. Depression is a disease growing at an alarming rate.  Cry! Blame yourself! Blame others but never stay in that deep dark hole.

I believe in going big, that honesty is the best policy, and in the undeniable fact that we are deserving of fulfilling right fit lives. We all have a purpose. We might not know it, but later you will find it. Sometimes you just have to dive deeper, deeper in your thoughts, deeper in you mind, deeper in your soul and deeper in your heart to find you. Be a fighter, not a physical fighter but someone who will fight for your dreams, hopes and aspiration.  Be a champion, let those dreams, hopes and aspiration be reality. Let them come to past. Feel it and embrace it. Embrace you.
