A Quiet Place - review, spoilers

I have 4 words about this movie: i got SO SCARED! Lately, I can't sit still through a scary movie anymore, no matter the type. I get really absorbed into the action, and then anxious, sometimes to the paranoid level. And of course all other related and not fun jazz. It was A's birthday today - April 14th, so we had to do something fun. Going to the movies IS fun. Before I start, I have to warn you there won't be major spoilers this time because the movie is new, still playing and some of you might not want to be spoiled. If you want to read spoilers, I'm sure there are many other sites and blogs...

Shadowscapes Tarot - Ace of Cups

Shadowscapes Tarot - Ace of Cups

Hi all! Today, we have a look at the Ace of Cups from the Shadowscapes tarot deck. The first things we see on this card are the big yellow fish, faes and the elegant cup. Some fish seem to fly or float above the cup while others swim under it. Blue and gold are the main colors of the card. None of the fish or the faes are looking at us. These are some things to consider when dealing with the Ace of Cups [from the official page]: The water element. Deep feelings, intimacy, compassion, love. For me, this suite is rather sad, melancholic. Sometimes almost void of life. What do we see? There are other...

Fantasy Island (2020) - critique and spoilers

Hi all! Today we take a look at a movie, after quite a bit of time. This post first appeared sometime in 2020 on the old site/platform. Just because it's quarantine time due to the virus (in mid April when i started writing this), doesn't mean we can't watch movies anymore. So, we watched Fantasy Island, and I have opinions (who nobody asked for, of course). I only recognized 2 actresses in this supernatural horror, Maggie Q (as Gwen Olsen). and Lucy Hale (as Melanie Cole), and one actor, Michael Rooker (as Damon). I actually wouldn't really call it horror, but a thriller for i didn't get scared...

Shadowscapes Tarot – Ten of Swords

Shadowscapes Tarot – Ten of Swords

Hello! We continue interpreting the Shadowscapes Tarot. This time we have the Ten of Swords. What do we see? The card is split almost in half based on color: the upper part is crimson-red and the lower part is purple with hints of yellow. We then see a human figure that makes us think of The Fool card. The figure looks away from us, and it also seems as if she doesn't have a face. She seems to have tattoos on her upper arms, as well as a red ribbon on each arm. She wears a large piece of cloth, white/yellow in color. it seems to be breaking apart, and turn crimson. She has long blond hair. Her...

Shadowscapes Tarot - Eight of Pentacles

Hello, all. Let's learn more about the Eight of Pentacles from the Shadowscapes tarot deck. What do we see and what does it mean? The main color of the card is green, pointing to money and abundance. On this card, we see a big black and red spider building his web. He is close to what appears to be its center. He used a nearby tree branch as the basis for his web, as well as a rather thin whimsical grass-blade for a second side. We don't see the 3rd point of support, which makes me think this spider is not as wise as we would assume. His web also has some holes and doesn't seem 'perfect'. Any wind...

Shadowscapes Tarot - The Wheel of Fortune

Shadowscapes Tarot - The Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune is a rather important card, in my opinion. It's classic meaning refers to destiny, fate, turning points, movement, change, patterns, and cycles. This card reminds us that "what goes around comes around." What do we see? The main color is yellow, with hints of blue and purple. In the center of the card there is a big wheel/circle decorated with what seems to be Celtic knots, a sun/star right at its center, surrounded by a what looks like a stylized snowflake. Half of the wheel looks faded, though it's probably some mist or fog that gives this impression. The other half has better-defined...

To Live (1994) - review, spoilers

To Live (1994) - review, spoilers

Hello, everyone! You probably already know I like watching movies that are not spoken in English. "To Live" Is a Chinese movie from 1994 and it's also known as "Lifetimes" and the original title is 活着 (read as Huózhe) which means 'alive, to be'. If you're not familiar with the movie or with the Chinese culture in general, this is an adaptation from a novel by the same name. Of course, there are quite a handful of differences between the two, but I haven't read the story to be able to say what's different or which version i like more. This is an older movie, but most likely many of you have never...
