Insurgent: The Movie

Insurgent, Divergent, Book Journey

Now that the factions are scrambling for safety and the world is literally in chaos, Tris and Four are trying to stay safe all the while knowing that the only way anyone will have hope of feeling safe is once Jeanine is dead.  In this world, you never know who you can trust.

 

A friend and I went to Insurgent this week.  I had read the book, as well as Divergent (the first book) and had been impressed with what they had done in the first movie.  Shailene Woodley (who also starred in Fault In Our Stars) makes an excellent Tris and I love the diversity in the roles that she plays.  Theo James as Four is a new actor to me although I see he was also in Underworld and an episode of Downton Abby so I must have seen him.  Theo is also perfect for the role that he plays in the movies.

I really enjoyed this second installment of the Divergent Series.  I have yet to read the third book due to grumblings I heard when it came out about how they should have just ended it at two books.  I have a year before the next movie will come out (Allegiant) which I see will be broke into two parts (the new trend to S T R E T CH out our movie addictions I guess.  I will read the final book before then.

I enjoyed the movie, I can not recall the book well enough to do a comparison, but I love the action and the story line. Kate Winslet gets kudos from me for playing the evil mastermind rule keeper of all (she is the equivalent of President Snow from Hunger Games).

Overall:  AWESOME SAUCE.  If you like YA Dystopia even if you have not red the books, see these movies.  They are kickin.

 

Morning Meanderings… Enough

1a

Good morning!  It is FRIDAY!  And my today is LOADED with things to do so I don’t even know why that is exciting to me… but there it is.  🙂  Friday.

*dance dance dance*

I am going to work out, lunch with a friend, coffee with another friend, a walk with another friend, and a movie with another friend.

Seriously… that is my day.

Friday must mean Friends day.  🙂

It is just the way it worked out.  I have been working on catching up with those I have not seen in a while and honestly as you probably all know keeping up on relationships can be time-consuming!  No wonder so many people lose touch.

These relationships are important to me however so onward I go.  It makes life busy but it is enough for me.  🙂

The movie?  Insurgent.  I am so excited.

Tomorrow a writing seminar and a book release party.

 

What are you doing with your weekend?
