Movie / Book: Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3

Director / Author: Jeff Kinney

Fernando Lacalle Turbino Pereira

This book is about a thirteen-year-old boy called Gregory Heffley. It is the third volume of a fourteen-book series. It tells stories about Greg and his best friend Rowley in middle school and also with his family (parents and two brothers). When you read the book you have a lot of fun because he is always in trouble. In this book, Greg’s dad wants to send him to a military school, and he needs to escape from that.

My favorite character is Rowley, Greg’s best friend, because he’s clumsy and naive. I super recommend it for those who like to laugh and have some fun time.

Movie / Book: DARKEST HOUR (2017)

Director / Author: Joe Wright/ Anthony McCarten

Pedro Sant´Ana Fioravanti Aguiar

 Darkest Hour is a drama movie from 2017 directed by Joe Wright and written by Anthony McCarten.The film takes place in 1940, in England, during the German invasion of France, and tells the story of Winston Churchill and his first days as prime minister. The motion picture is full of real and inspiring speeches and talks about how Winston resisted the Nazis even in the hardest situations and saved his country.

 I really like the acting in this film. Lily James did a great job playing the role of Elizabeth Layton. So did Ben Mendelsohn, that stars as King George VI, but the best actor of the movie is by far Gary Oldman, who stars as Winston Churchill and even won an Oscar of best actor. My favourite character in the film is Winston, because he was brave and smart, and without him, the world wouldn’t be the same. I think this is an ideal movie for people who like to know about history and people that changed the world forever.

Movie / Book: Minha vida fora de série (it’s a brazilian book so it doesn’t have a translation)

Director / Author: Paula Pimenta

Ana Cecília Vasconcellos Celino

  Minha Vida Fora de Série is a brazilian romance book written by Paula Pimenta. The book is about a teenage girl, Pricila, who has moved to another city after her parents divorced. At the beginning she didn’t like the idea, but maybe, it is a chance to meet someone…

 This is an awesome book that shows the life of a normal teenager with a little taste of love ❤️. It’s the kind of book that you don’t want to stop reading. I love the way that the author describes the story, a way that makes you happy or sad along with the characters, and it leaves you really wanting to know what happens in the end. If you like romances, you should definitely read this book. I give it 5 stars.

Movie / Book: Avengers: Endgame

Veruska Tonhá Moreira Isidro

It’s certainly the plot that’s going to define the fate of a movie, if it is going to be one of the biggest box offices of the world or not. Like it or not, we have to agree that the Avengers film franchise was one of the best ever produced, with individual movies for the characters and an amazing storyline. It was almost unbelievable when the movie Avengers: Endgame took the first place in the highest box offices of the world, beating Avatar. It took ten years for something like this to happen.

If you haven’t watched this movie, Avengers: Endgame is an extremely good movie that puts together most of the Marvel universe superheroes and characters into a journey to save the Universe. So we see Iron Man and his ‘mates’ (the Avengers), StarLord and the Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant Man and the Wasp, most of Wakanda warriors, and so on.

It is a traditional superhero movie indeed. But it brings a much more complex plot that demands some knowledge of the Marvel universe, such as knowing the characters, their story and what they’ve gone through.

 I really enjoyed watching it. It’s worth a lot. You get addicted to the storyline and it makes you curious to know more about the Marvel universe.

It’s a movie for all ages; it doesn’t matter. I suggest it to 7-year-old kids and up, adults, elders… everyone!

Movie / Book: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 

Bruno Vasconcelos do Espírito Santo

 

 Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a comedy film from the 80’s starring Matthew Broderick as a high schooler who’s very liked and popular in his school. He pretends to be sick and tries to spend the day with his best friend and his girlfriend while his school director tries to spy on him to prove that he’s faking his sickness. 

 The film constantly breaks the 4th wall and the main character (Ferris Bueller) is always talking to the viewer about the situation he’s in.

 The characters have pretty unique personalities. Ferris is always playful and he’s always seeing the bright side of things, unlike his best friend Cameron, who’s always concerned about Ferris decisions and is scared to go on an “adventure” with him.

 In my opinion, the film is great if you are trying to get some good laughs and it is also great to watch with friends and family! 

Thanks for reading 🙂
