let's go to the movies

I've been to the movies a lot lately, probably because Autumn has arrived and one of the things I love to do when it starts getting colder and darker is going to the movies. I thought I could tell you about two of the movies I've seen this month, The Maze Runner and Begin Again.

The Maze Runner
It's about Thomas who wakes up in a lift and has no memory of his previous life. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by boys around his age, who welcome him to the glade - the centre of a guint maze. All the other boys have no memory of the time before they arrived to the glade like Thomas did. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze open and every night they close. Thomas knows that somehow it's his destiny to help everyone escape the maze. 

I read the book almost a year ago, Eline Recommended it, and I loved it. The book was excellent and I was super exited when I heard that they were going to make a movie staring one of my favorite actors Dylan O'Brian. I had really high expectations and maybe that's why I'm a little bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the movie was amazing. Eline and I saw the movie on the premiere and we were so exited. The sceneries was fantastic and the cast was perfect (Dylan was amazing of course), but there were still something missing. They had taken away some of my favorite things from the book and they really rushed through the story. I still recommend it though and I'm looking forward to the next movie.

Begin Again
The movie is about the chance encounter between Dan, a disgraced record-label executive, and Gretta, a young singer-songwriter new to Manhattan. The encounter between them turns into a collaboration and they start recording an album outside, in different parts of Manhattan. 

Ruta and I saw Begin Again just because we both really like Keira Knightley. We didn't really know what the movie was about, so my expectations weren't very high. I was happily surprised, I loved it! The music, the story, the sceneries from Manhattan, everything was amazing. I didn't know that Keira could sing, but she really can. The soundtrack is unbelievably good and I really really recommend the movie. Below is one of the songs from the movie.

So go and see both of these movies now will ya? :)
