Serenity Of Life

This movie inspired me to write a review of it in a very peculiar way. I don't mean to ridicule it since this movie was done in 1940. It made me laugh rather than fall in love with it, which is apparently  what they are trying to achieve especially if you listen to the musical scoring of the movie.

They got the lines pretty good and twisted it a just fine alright, but not to how it was delivered. For example, they all looked too cheerful when their beloved sister eloped with Mr. Wickham and as for Mr. Darcy, his "countenance" is more lustful than in love to Eliza. The characters that I am mostly impressed with how it was represented was Mr. Bennet's, just as how the book described him to be. Eliza's character in this movie is too elegant for my taste and more likely to be Jane Bennet rather than Elizabeth Bennet considering her lovely and beautiful features.

I am not completely disappointed having heard the lines from the book and it was quite fun watching it. I almost laughed the whole time!

According to merriam webster, Despicable means: deserving to be despised : so worthless or obnoxious as to rouse moral indignation. 
I was only familiar with the word before because daffy duck loves to say that word every time. Anyway, just to give a brief information about the movie, it's about a person named Gru, who wants to be hated by the whole world and stealing the moon is his main objective to achieve that status. He needed the help of three children who has instead turned his whole world around. 

When this movie came out in the US it knocked out Eclipse from the #1 spot. One thing I've noticed though is that it's not that popular in other countries. On a personal point, the first time I saw the movie, I have to admit I wasn't attracted to the trailer, until one time, when I heard my daughter laughed at one of the scenes in the trailer (the part when the little girl said "does this count as an annoying sound?") I got curious then we went ahead and watched the movie on my day off.  The movie was hilarious and a delight to watch! I almost couldn't stop laughing. Both children and adults would enjoy it. At the same time, the story is heartfelt and touching.
