Movie Review: If I Stay, The Other Woman, The Giver, You're Not You (2014 Movies)

January 12, 2018

Assalammualaikum.. 


These movies had been staying in my hard disk, remaining untouched for years.. As the matter of fact, there are hundreds more of old movies that is waiting for their turn.. I downloaded these movies when I was preparing to enter my diploma life, as I was too afraid if my roommates wouldn't like me (I had traumatic high school life) so I prepared various drama and movies to fill the emptiness and little did I know, I would met blast-full roommates for my entire diploma year and plus, I got addicted to korean dramas so.. yeah.... 😓

I wanted to clear up some spaces of my hard disks and somehow, I felt guilty to just delete them without giving a chance and somehow, I'm slowly opening myself for them again.. I didn't realize I completed these four movies within 24 hours and I was thinking, why not for a short review..? It could even be new to some of you.. 😆
📺If I Stay
Synopsis: Mia Hall, a talented young cellist, thought the most difficult decision she would ever have to make would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at prestigious Juilliard or follow her heart to be with the love of her life, Adam, a rock singer/guitarist. However, a car wreck changes everything in an instant, and now Mia's life hangs in the balance. Suspended between life and death, Mia faces a choice that will decide her future.

Review: This story is just something to ponder about, in my opinion.. It's kinda confusing at first, as it kept on flashbacks of Mia's memory randomly but somehow, as the story is moving forward, it's just something for you to look forward.. I'm kinda in love in Adam's character since he had a good bf material with modest and loving attitude, contrary to a normal western rockers attitude while Mia herself, she's a cute introvert which you wouldn't expect she would hold herself well to be with Adam.. However, when you got to choose either to fight for your life or give up, and knowing that all of you family is gone, which path would you choose..?

Self-Rating: ★★★ and a half because it's not that bad.. 


📺The Other Woman
Synopis: Carly Whitten lives by strict rules when it comes to romantic relationships, but when she falls for suave, handsome Mark King, she begins an affair with him. A surprise visit to Mark's home reveals that he is married to devoted housewife, Kate.Carly and Kate direct their hurt and anger toward Mark, and when they discover yet a third woman caught in his web of lies, the three join forces for revenge.

Review: For someone whom loves light and relaxing movie, this is just something for you.. To be honest, I kinda enjoyed this kind of movie as I don't really need put on full emotions on it..  No intense or cheesy lines, just something for your happy pills.. 

Self-Rating: ★★★★


📺The Giver
Synopis: Jonas lives in a seemingly idyllic world of conformity and contentment. When he begins to spend time with The Giver, an old man who is the sole keeper of the community's memories, Jonas discovers the dangerous truths of his community's secret past. Armed with the power of knowledge, Jonas realizes that he must escape from their world to protect himself and those he loves -- a challenge no one has ever completed successfully.

Review: If you're a fan of sci-fi movies, or maybe just a fan of Divergent series, this is just something for you.. Well, personally prefer the Divergent series but this one is still an okay movie.. I really love the lesson that they had but somehow, I felt like something is missing at the ending.. I thought it had continuation, something like 2nd movies but realizing that this is the only series, I'm like.. Okay.. There should be more.. "What would happen to this now..? And that..? Just really, this is the end..?" yeah.. Those are what I've been asking for the ending.. 

Self-Rating: ★★★  because I need a better ending..


📺You're Not You
Synopis: A life-changing bond develops between a woman with ALS whose marriage is on the rocks and the brash collegian  hired to be her assistant.

Review: I wanted to ignore this movie at first, and just delete it but looking at the rating (7.4 imdb), I'm like, okay.. This must be something.. I decided to give it a try and right now, I'm so glad for not deleting it right away.. I would describe this movie similar to "Me Before You" and the only difference is that both main character were girls and it just emphasizes more on friendship.. Well, this movie is just something that I could pour my emotions into.. 

Self-Rating: ★★★  because I swear this movie caught my heart..

    1. you count it mistakenly.. A movie could be 2 hours max so let's say 8 hours total for 4 movies, 24-8= 16 hours left for me to sleep, eat, bath and stuff.. xD
