What if you could erase from your memory an intense love affair or an entire relationship? Would you do it? Would you want to forget? Most people have met that one person who completely changed the way they thought about relationships and love itself. A relationship so full of color that every memory is equally filled with both joy and dreadful pain. The one who made them want to throw caution to the wind and do crazy things. The love that moved so fast and so intensely, it was impossible not to take a leap of faith by jumping right in. This movie invites the audience to wonder what would happen if we erased that memory. Would we ever learn anything from the past or would we repeat the same mistakes? Does ‘the one’ really exist? And if so, how do we know when we found it?. Click on the title to read the full review.

The purge is a psychological thriller that offers a wonderful depiction of a twisted dystopia where all crime is made legal for 12 hours every year. This movie indirectly digs into sociological constructs of crime and the fabrication of news and reality by the media. For instance, in our modern society murder may or may not be legal depending on the circumstances. Murder during a war or as self defense during a dispute is seen as legal, while premeditated or violent murders are seen as wrong. It is an open invitation to wonder how much of what we accept as normal is really close to barbaric. Click on the title to read the full review.
This book is an invitation to dig deeper into the self and find out who you really are in order to create synchronicity between thought and action, inviting others to truly connect with us. When we wear masks we create dysfunction in our internal mechanism, so that when we want to smile it becomes forced, and when we truly want to love, we have forgotten how or what it means. When we fail to embrace the less perfect side of ourselves that has been forgotten and shamed, the stronger that side becomes and takes control of our actions forming a life of its own.

Before I proceed, I must warn you that this review contains some spoilers. I absolutely loved this movie because it was unexpectedly funny, dynamic and surprisingly good. The story centers around Dave, a regular dorky comic book geek turned superhero. Dave is a high school student whose only super power is being invisible to girls. Part of his charm is that he is such a relatable character. While the plot seem to be about Dave and his journey into trying to become a superhero, the movie is really about 'Hit Girl.' Who happens to be one of the strongest female superhero character I have seen in a long time. This movie does a great job showing some serious girl power. Click on the title to read the full review.
