The Perfectionists



Here we go again (Soon to be on ABC Family) ....

In Beacon Heights, Washington, five high school seniors know that you don't have to be good to be perfect.
Musical genius Mackenzie is desperate to get into Juilliard, even if it means playing a duet with her best friend's boyfriend. Beautiful Ava isn't above using her assets to get an A. Athletic Caitlin is one goal away from a soccer scholarship—if she can call a time-out on her relationship drama. Popular Julie has it all—literally, thanks to her hoarder mom—and will do anything to keep her family's secret. And former It Girl Parker is experimenting with her wild side.
The five girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover they all hate the same person: rich, entitled Nolan, who's done terrible things to each of them. They come up with the perfect murder—a hypothetical murder, of course. It's all wishful thinking . . . until they wake up one morning to find that their wish came true. Nolan was killed—in exactly the way they planned. The thing is, they didn't do it. So who did?
Suddenly the girls are the prime suspects in the murder. And they need to find the real killer before their perfect lives are ended—for good.

Wishful thinking perhaps, but fans would love to see SKINS' Freya Mavor as Mackenzie Wright.
Unfortunately, this is the same storyline as Pretty Little Liars, but this cast might be richer and closer to the NEW ADULT trend in books these days.

The Perfectionists


So I’m reading The Perfectionists (and, of course, comparing it to Pretty Little Liars bc Sara Shepard) and I realized that literally every dude in this freaking book is super sketchy. Like, no. There should be no love interests. Run away, all of you. Run aWAYYYYYY-N

Intersellar



Honestly, I dunno what I was expecting. It was also one of the longest movies I've gone too. Some critics say its the best work of Jonathan and Christopher Nolan while others might not think so.

As with any good writer or director they want to put it out there what the audience will take and enjoy. And sometimes...go as far as beyond belief..just to see if they'll buy it.

The cast was wonderful. It was great to see Mackenzie Foy in the role of young Murphy. I was so afraid her acting career might hit a nose dive after TWILIGHT, but she's showing she's a wonderful actress.

Still we see a world that is dying. Sort of. I mean, those fields they showed looked pretty productive, but the theory is..the need to find another planet to move on. This takes a lot of thought, and I gotta say I didn't have the attention span to let it all sink in.

Anyway, some people persuade McConaughey's character to pilot this far off space travel to the black hole. This..comes in GRAVITY and well..TIME TRAVEL.

The thing is..I guess I was expecting more interesting planets out there. Maybe even some aliens. None of that comes to play. Instead they wonder off, get in some tight spots which you know..is like an hour or so..while back home..life goes on and well..everyone gets old.

In some ways, the movie was predictable. In other ways..it went places I least expected.

This movie is for the space lover. And for those who love this director and writers work, too.

STORYLINE: In the near future, Earth has been devastated by drought and famine, causing a scarcity in food and extreme changes in climate. When humanity is facing extinction, a mysterious rip in the space-time continuum is discovered, giving mankind the opportunity to widen its lifespan. A group of explorers must travel beyond our solar system in search of a planet that can sustain life. The crew of the Endurance are required to think bigger and go further than any human in history as they embark on an interstellar voyage into the unknown. Coop, the pilot of the Endurance, must decide between seeing his children again and the future of the human race.
