Let’s Talk: Favorite Summer Movies….

Goood Morning Everyone, hope your days been going well so far! We’re coming close to the end of Summer as well as this month, although this month has made me all confused, the fact that it’s just now gotten to the middle of the month feels very weird, I’m writing this post on the 12th of August, you might be wondering why I’m saying that, it’s because this post won’t be posted today, also I don’t know if it’s just me, but this week has felt like it’s taking a bit to get over and we’re only half way there…..but it’s okay we’re going to keep going the best way we can, that’s all you can do!

Seeing that we’re in the summer still, I thought we’d talk about some movies and by movies I mean some favorite of minds, I was trying to do some thinking yesterday and came up with this idea, it’s probably not the first time someone has done it though, but I had this idea (now that I’m thinking about it, it probably was the day before yesterday that I thought about this) I wanted to talk about “Summer movies” but what I consider to be summer movies, if they aren’t considered to be summer movies already! I have 3 movies that I’m going to be sharing upon, one is already a summer movie while the other two I’m going to put them in that category in cases they aren’t, but should be!

First Up: High School Musical 2

Yes I’m talking about a Disney Original Movie here a.k.a DCOM, when I think of Summer movies this is pretty much the one movie that always comes to mind for me, even though I haven’t watched this one in quite some time, it never leaves my mind! High School Musical was one of my favorites growing up and High School Musical 2 is a very well known and loved movie, most people will probably choose this one over the first movie, but some people like the sequels better then the originals, doesn’t mean the originals don’t have love either, it’s just like that at times!

With High School Musical 2, once summer hits, this is the first movie everyone goes to cement the moment of Summer vacation and let’s not forget the famous song that starts it all “What Time Is It!? (Summertime) like that is every kids theme when summer arrives so of course it has to me on my list, plus it’s a good movie and the reason why it’s in my top favorite summer movie list, it’s the kind of thing that gets you pumped, excited and just ready to enjoy Summer….even though Summer isn’t one of my personal favorite seasons….whenever I see this movie, I won’t lie, it can get you in the mood of wanting to have a good Summer!

Up Next: Lilo & Stitch

Okay hear me out on this, Lilo and Stitch is probably one of the most UNDERRATED movies EVER!! It’s crazy though because people remember the movie, they just don’t talk about it enough and that’s my problem, like how can you not love this movie, I just don’t understand!! I’m always thinking about Lilo & Stitch, it’s always in the back of my mind, always and I just don’t get why people don’t see it as a Summer movie, I mean it’s literally set in Hawaii!!? Tell me who doesn’t get hyped over the opening of the movie when they see Lilo in the ocean swimming as the title of the movie pops up and you hear that wonderful song that is Hawaiian Rollercoaster coming in as the scene plays while you watch Lilo rushing to get to her Hula class because she was late trying to feed Pudge the fish his usual PB&J because she didn’t want to give him tuna which is all they had in house like come on…..you got to love it!

And I do, I flipping love this movie, I don’t watch it often, but it’s always on my watchlist, it’s such a beautiful storytelling movie, like if I could explain it I would, but this movie is sooo wonderful, this little girl takes in an alien, that’s actually an experiment gone rogue, because Jumba messed up that she thinks is a dog and she’s raised by her older Sister Nani because their parents passed in a terrible accident…..it’s a heartfelt kind of movie, but it’s so worth watching if you’ve never watched it before, my wording of what the movie is about isn’t probably very good….but the movie is and I would love it, if people both watched and talked about it more, because it deserves our love and attention, hence why it’s in my Summer movie list, I mean why not consider it a summer movie, it’s got all the feels of summer and again it’s based in Hawaii which it’s always summer over there, I mean it is an island after all, just watch Lilo and Stitch, you’ll love it!!

Last, but certainly not least: The Parent Trap (with Linsey Lohan)

Okay so this might already be considered a summer movie, I’m not really sure, all I know is that I enjoy this movie a lot! Now I am aware that there is an older version of the Parent Trap, never watched it though, probably should because I’ve never seen it and I’m sure it’s very good! Anytime The Parent Trap comes on…..I’m always watching it, whatever I’m able to watch of it anyway, I don’t always watch the whole thing, however I have watched the whole movie before though! I must say The Parent Trap has become a little bit of a favorite of mine these days, I don’t know the actual release date of this movie, but from the time it premiered to seeing it now….I’d say it’s aged like a fine wine and I don’t even drink, I just like that saying lol!

Again, I don’t know if people see this movie as a Summer movie, but it should be I mean their at a summer camp at the start of the movie, maybe not at first, but they’re at a camp so if this movie is not considered a Summer kind of movie, then I’m personally going to put it in the Summer movie category, because it needs to be there! I love this movie though, I just love the vibe that it gives off, plus it’s got a love story and I’m quite the hopeless romantic so you know I’m sitting there enjoying every moment when Annie and Halie (however it’s spelled) switch places and full their parents all while trying to come up with a scheme to get them back together again so they can be a family again,

Even the butlers of Annie and Halie’s household’s find love with each other, how sweet is that!? I just love those moments and the fact that they find a way to reunite, mainly because of their daughters, but still, I think it’s adorable, plus The Parent Trap is just one of the best movies if I haven’t said that already, but yeah definitely a summer movie The Parent Trap!

What movies do you guys consider to be Summer movies if not already in that category!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

Very First Poll…Trying Something New!

Hiya! Hope you all are having a very good day, enjoying your Tuesday, for some reason it doesn’t really feel like Tuesday it feels more like Monday, although Monday wasn’t really my best day, so lets not have it feel like Monday yeah!? Anyway I got something new and different that I wanted to try…..I kind of JUST discovered this today and I’ve been at this blog for 2 years now nearly 3, it’ll be 3 next month which I’m still like woah about you know!?

But you’d think that’d understand these blocks that WordPress has or would have known a lot about them seeing that I’ve had this blog for a while now….but no, it was June 22, 2021 when I discovered this, hey sometimes you discover things a little later which is fine lol! I’m excited though, because this is going to be the first time EVER where I’m asking you guys for help/advice to what I should post next….never done that before so I’m a little nervous and I’m hoping that you’ll join me on this new experience and have a little fun with it as well because that’s what this blog site is about to bring a little fun when I’m able to, for you guys as well as other things that may be of help and just something that you can enjoy reading with a bit of personal thoughts from myself here and there, in this case though, it’s just for fun!

Who knows though depending on how those of you reading this post respond and whether you see this and want to join in or not, I might just have it be a new add in feature to my posts if you like it, probably not all the time, but when I feel a little unsure what to do, I’ll ask this way, which by the way, I don’t do often, I normally don’t ask for help so I’m hoping this works and is okay and I’m hoping you enjoy yourself as well, so on to the questions!

Those are the questions that I have for you guys to help me decide on, like I said I’m nervous I’ve never done this before, but I’m excited, if you’ve heard of any of these Disney Channel movies (DCOM’s) go with your favorite, if you’ve not really heard of any of these movies, you could go with the one that sounds good to you, whatever you get drawn to first, whatever calls you or we can try something different instead of picking one, if you want you could comment on this post on your favorite Disney movie or soundtrack, we’ll keep it on Disney Channel Movies/Soundtracks so we have a theme going, I’ll probably know a good amount, I watched a lot of Disney growing up, but if it’s new Disney…..

Well I’ll be doing research haha! If somethings familiar based off the comments to your favorites, I’ll pick one out of a hat/bowl/mug and choose that way or do another poll and have you guys decide, I guess we’ll just see how this goes, it doesn’t hurt to try right!? I’ll leave you guys to it, I’ll probably write another post in a moment, maybe after I’ve had lunch on what I don’t know, I’ll figure something out, enjoy yourselves!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: High School Musical 2 (13 Year Anniversary)

How’s everyone’s Monday going so far!? Hope it’s treating you all well and isn’t giving you too much of a time!! If today’s been a little shifty throughout your day hopefully a little nostalgia might help, now I know not everyone is a big fan of the High School Musical movies franchise (also series now apparently) but when I was younger, High School Musical and anything Disney really, well it was all I really watched at the time, now not so much,

but I still like to enjoy all the old shows I grew up with within the Disney Channel as well as most of the movies, if you couldn’t tell by the title already today we’re going to be discussing the anniversary of the second High School Musical Movie, it was today August 17th when the movie premiered in 2007 making it 13 years old today…….

13 today, how crazy is that!? I remember when this movie first premiered and how excited I was to be watching it, for those who have watched all the High School Musical movies, I believe this one was everyone’s favorite between the first and third movie, all the movies to me we’re great so asking me if I have a favorite well, i’m not sure if i’d be able to answer that really!? I think for a while anytime Summer came around the first song that people thought about was “What Time Is It!?”

I mean this movie was pretty much a Summer theme tradition to watch whenever Summer Vacation was a go, to be fair i’d say High School Musical 2 had one of the best soundtracks within the High School Musical franchise, I mean you had Bet On It, I Don’t Dance, Work It Out and so fourth, but besides the soundtrack, High School Musical 2 is probably one of the best movies of High School Musical, although you can’t forget about the first movie that introduced HSM and of course the great send off that the last movie gave us of the characters we’ve grown to love and still love in fact!!

I’m sure that most of us probably still listen to all the soundtracks from each movie, I won’t tell you that I don’t because that’d be a lie…..I actually have a few songs from each movie that I still listen to, til this day not all the time, but when I feel I need to or just cause I want to, in fact I just recently checked out the soundtrack (all of them) as well as purposely going to listen to certain songs within this month so yeah i’m still a fan of HSM!!

That all said though, the fact that today marks 13 years since this movies original release, is mind-blowing!! Although I know it’s to be expected for anniversaries of movies and albums and that to come, I mean if something is released on specific day it’s bound to have an anniversary one way or another right!?

Still though, it’s always amazing when you know you’ve watched something or maybe listened to something for the first time and then years go by and sometimes if it’s something that’s important or just meant a lot to you,

it’s amazing how you still remember the very first time it appeared to you and maybe what you were doing in that moment when it happened or even where you were, it’s the details of it or with it to where that feeling of I remember this…..comes from, it may not mean much or be as big of a deal to a lot of people, but to you and those who shared that same feeling with you in that moment, it can mean everything and that’s what’s so great about it, that experience of getting to see or hear something for the first time!!

I don’t think there’s ever going to be a moment where we’re not still surprised with that kind of thing, but that’s all I have to say I just wanted to share this, HSM was a big part of my childhood, I grew up with it and still grow up with it……I don’t care how old I get I know that i’ll still quote and sing all of the songs when it comes to these kind of movies!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: Camp Rock (12 Year Anniversary)

Now I don’t know if most of you will remember this movie, but this was literally my childhood days and it’s kinda crazy to think that this movie came out 12 years ago, not 12 years today exactly, it’s 12 year anniversary was actually this past Saturday, I was planning to talk about this the day of, but never got around to it, but it’s been 3 days, so it’s not that bad!!

Reason i’m talking about it today, is because I just finished watching the movie, now if i’m being honest, I don’t actually watch movies or tv for that matter very often and if I do it’s for a very short while, however movies are the things that I watch the least, but I figured that it’s been a while since I watched the movie, I can’t actually tell you how long it’s been…..

Let’s just say it’s been a long time…….and i’ll tell you rewatching this movie, it still felt the same, but it also felt different at the same time, some scenes still hold up and some……could’ve been better, but at the time, it was okay for what it was I guess……the music however…….well it hasn’t changed that much, but there are some that I have re listened to, that i’ve gained opinions on, some are the same and some well……how I felt about it then, I still feel about it now only there’s some things mixed in……..it’ll make sense when I recored on it to explain don’t worry, this post is about the movie though

There’s a lot to it that, I don’t quite get now with certain scenes within the movie……also I didn’t realize how much it actually got to me, re watching it I felt quite annoyed at some parts, mainly with Tess and different things that happened in the movie, but than you have some good classic scenes i’m sure some of you might know the ones, that said, this movie started giving me a headache because I was like “are you serious” some moments just really bothered me, but nonetheless, it’s still a good movie!!

Yeah it’s pretty cheesy most of the time, but it’s an early 2000s movie so what do you expect right!? On a good note, we got a miniature Demi Lovato here and the Jo Bros (Jonas Brothers for those that don’t know) a.k.a. Connect 3…..don’t know why that was their name now that i’m thinking about it, guess they were inspired by connect 4 the game or something!?

Yes I know it was because there were 3 of them, but they could’ve thought of a different name i’m sure…..connect 3 it was though, not that it was bad, just really!?…..alright then…..you know what I mean!? I gotta say though, my favorite performance in this movie has to be Here I Am, that song always got to me when watched it as a young one…….I don’t even have to watch the movie though for it to deeply feel it, it’s just an overall great song,

I’ll talk more on that later though, I do have some other favorite performances in the movie like This Is Me…..of course, Play My Music……others I can’t quite think of right now, but still there’s some good ones there, but I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since this movie premiered like it doesn’t seem that long ago, but it definitely is which is the mad part!!

Like I remember when it first came out, well when I first watched it on tv anyway…..which was the premiere, but you get what I mean……I could probably go on about this topic, but i’ll keep it short and sweet for now and save some other thoughts on it later, that is if I have anymore thoughts on it, i’m sure I do….but I won’t make it long, I just wanted to briefly talk on it, and share a few thoughts about it……even though there’s some parts in this movie I laugh at now with how cringe it can get and so on,

I still have soft spot for it and enjoy it vey much so, it was my childhood so obviously nostalgia for it is going to be there, plus it’s got some of my favorite songs in it along with Demi and the Jonas Brothers….did I mention that already!? I probably did haha…..

Have you ever watched Camp Rock, if so what are some of your favorite songs from the movie!?

All The Love ❤ ❤
