Lately, I haven’t had much time to go out for a movie since I’ve been up to my eyeballs in reports and presentations. Hence, to relax and boost my mood, I rented some good old movies and made myself some healthy snacks for a late-night treat. “Silver Linings Playbook” is one of my all-time favorites and I’ve lost count how many times I replayed it.

The last time I watched it was a week ago on Saturday night. Oscar-nominated movies were usually not my taste due to their complexity and lack of entertainment but Silver Linings Playbook was an exception. I’ve always preferred something a little sentimental, light-hearted, yet meaningful and this movie had it all. Silver Linings Playbook was an adaptation from the novel written by Matthew Quick, starring two incredibly talented actors Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.

This romantic comedy movie was about two wounded souls who once again found beauty in the most unexpected place. Pat (Bradley), a former teacher, was just released from a mental institution and trying to reconcile with his cheated wife despite his family’s protest. He met Tiffany (Jennifer), a woman with problems of her own, and things got complicated. Two people bearing hidden scars with no hope in the future finally had lights in their lives again.

The movie was not heavy at all but extremely entertaining with some laugh-out-loud moments. No matter how many times I’ve watched it, I still got emotional every time I replayed it. The underlying message was also a shout-out to anyone who believes they have hit rock bottom: “When one door closes, another door opens”. Therefore, keep moving forward and don’t lose hope. If anyone runs out of movies to watch, I highly recommend the “Silver Linings Playbook” as a change of appetite.

Watching movies is one of my hobbies. To be more specific, I enjoy the animated movies more than any other types of movies. The stories and plots of such movies are great and enjoyable. Besides, I also enjoy the making of such movies – they require more focus and attention from the makers. I am happy to discuss the movie that I have recently watched.

The movie I watched was Kung Fu Panda 3. This is the latest instalment of the series and the two earlier series were heavily successful. This instalment has a different plot than the earlier parts. This movie shows that Po meets with his own people – the other Pandas at the Panda village. But he experiences another problem with this meeting and has to play the role of rescuer against the problem. Accordingly, he teaches and forms his own soldiers to fight against the evil and finally, wins the battle.

I watched the movie a couple of days ago. On that day, I did not attend my college for physical illness. As I had to stay at home, I decided to pass some quality moments. I sit to enjoy some television shows. While browsing on the television channels, I found that one of the movie-showing channels is telecasting the movie. I missed the initial part of this movie but later guessed the events. It was almost noon when the movie began and continued for over two hours. Actually, the movie run time is less than two hours I think and it is the advertisement which makes the movies longer than they actually are. So, it was a bit distressing for me to sit around the advertising hours during the movie time.

I love to watch movies with my friends. But this time, I was alone. Though one of my friends was supposed to come to meet me, he could not keep the promise for some other reasons. I asked my younger sibling to be with me during the movie time. But he also denied showing some excuses. As a result, I was all alone to enjoy the movie. In fact, I do not find it interesting to enjoy a movie alone. One should talk with the other viewers about different aspects of the movie, make comments on the movie-making process, share relevant information with each other and more. When all the things are done, the movie becomes more enjoying. And for that, you will need at least another viewer with you. But I could not manage so, and hence, I had to watch the movie alone. But I discussed several aspects with myself and compared the events together.  

I liked this animated movie for some particular motives. This appears as an educative movie to me. In fact, I have watched the earlier episodes of this series and got entertained. But this particular instalment was a bit different. The movie dealt with the issues like how Po trained up his own people and engaged them in fighting against Kai, another spirit warrior. He took lots of responsibilities and also the assistance of his martial art companions. Besides, the direction of the movie was wonderful. All the shots were perfect. I know that a good number of people had worked hard to make it a success and they are successful in every term of the movie. So it received positive criticisms all around.
