The girl on the train by Paula Hawkins

Quatrième de couverture:

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. ‘Jess and Jason’, she calls them. Their life – as she sees it – is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough.

Now everything’s changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she’s only watched from afar.

Now they’ll see; she’s much more than just the girl on the train…
Mon avis:
Pour être franche j'ai regardé le film alors que j'était aux 3/4 du livre du coup j'ai arrêté de le lire car c'était un peu ridicule de le finir alors que je venais de voir la fin.
Dans le livre l'histoire ce situe en Angleterre en dehors de Londres. Dans le film l'histoire ce situe aux Etats Unis en dehors de New York. Pourquoi? Je ne comprend pas ce gros changement.
Dans le livre Anna es très stressé, passe beaucoup de temps au lit et ne passe pas beaucoup de temps avec se fille même si elle aime sa famille. Dans le film Anna va très bien, toujours à jouer avec sa fille et va même jusqu'à essayer d'affronter Rachel dans la rue. Pourquoi lui changer de personnalité comme cela? 
Dans le livre j'ai eu envie de prendre Rachel par les épaules et la secouer pour la réveiller. Dand le film j'ai eu de la peine pour elle.
Dans le livre comme dans le film Megan m'a gonflé.

Livre comme film je vous les conseils. Car même si je n'ai pas le terminé j'ai quand même beaucoup apprécié ma lecture et dans le film Emily Blunt es vraiment super! 

In English:

To be honest I watched the film when I was in around 3/4 of the book so I stopped reading it as it was a bit silly to keep going when I just watched the ending.

In the book the story takes place in England outside of London. In the film the story takes place in th States outside of New York. Why? I don't understand this big change.
In the book Anna is really stressed, spends a lot of time in bed and not a lot with her daughter even if she loves her very much. In the film Anna is fine, always playing with her daughter and even tries to have a go at Rachel in the street. Why changing her personnality like that?
In the book I wanted to grab Rachel by the shoulder and shakes her to wakes her up. In the film I was sad for her.
In the book like in th film Megan annoyed me.

Book like film you should really have a go at them. Even if I didn't finish the book I really enjoyed it and in the film Emily Blunt is really good!

Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children by Ramson Riggs

Quatrième de couverture: 

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children;, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children who once lived here - one of whom was his own grandfather - were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow - impossible though it seems - they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photographyMiss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
 
Mon avis:
 
Un mélange de vraies photographies et de fiction.
Après la mort tragique de son grand père Jacob part à la recherche de son passé et découvre Miss Pérégrine et ses enfants particuliers.
 
Une histoire qui m'avais vraiment tenté mais tentation qui à malheureusement disparue une fois le livre ouvert.
J'ai trouvé l'histoire trainant vraiment en longueur. Je me suis ennuyé et même du faire une pause de quelques semaines pour retrouver la motivation de le finir.

Je vais quand même lire les deux autres tomes car je suis curieuse de ce qui va ce passé et voir le film aussi car j'aime Tim Burton mais je ne vais pas me presser.

In English:

A mix of real photographs and fiction.
After the tragic death of his grandfather Jacob goes on an adventure to look in his past and discover Miss Peregrine and her peculiar children.

A story that I was really tempted to get into but the temptation unfortunately vanished once I opened the book.
I found the story really long. I was so bored I had to take a few weeks break to find the motivation to open the book again.

I am still going to read the other two books because I am curious of what is going to happen next et I will watch the film because I love Tim Burton but I'm not going to rush into it.


Moana

Synopsis:
 
In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by the Demigod Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain's daughter's island, she answers the Ocean's call to seek out the Demigod to set things right.
 
Mon avis:
 
Après le désastre qu'à été "the good dinosaur" cela fait du bien de retrouver Disney au top de sa forme.
Ce film est un petit bijou.Je suis sorti de la salle avec un gros sourire aux lèvres.
J'ai ri, j'ai pleuré, j'ai adoré.
Il n'y a rien de mauvais dans ce film. Les chansons sont géniales et Dwayne Johnson es super! 
Je le conseil vivement!
 
In English:
 
After the desaster that was "the good dinosaur" it feels so good to have Disney back at the top.
This film is perfect. I left the room with a huge smile on my face.
I laughed, I cried, I loved it.
There is nothing bad about this film. The songs are awesome and Dwayne Johnson is great!
You have to see it :)

Linger

Quatrième de couverture:

Once Grace and Sam have found each other, they know they must fight to stay together. For Sam, this means a reckoning with his werewolf past. For Grace, it means facing a future that is less and less certain.
Into their world comes a new wolf named Cole. He is wrestling with his own demons, embracing the life of a wolf while denying the ties of a human. For Grace, Sam, and Cole, life is a constant struggle between two forces--wolf and human--with love baring its two sides as well. It is harrowing and euphoric, freeing and entrapping, enticing and alarming. As their world falls apart, love is what lingers. But will it be enough?

Mon avis: 

Le deuxième tome de la saga des Loups de Mercy Fall.
J'avais dévoré le premier tome d'un coup. Cette histoire d'une fille qui tombe amoureuse d'un loup garou et qui fait tout pour l'aider à rester humain. C'est mimi comme tout.

Dans le deuxième tome Grace et Sam sont toujours aussi amoureux. L'antidote à fonctionné pour Sam et ils vivent leurs petites vie à Mercy Fall.
Mais quand Grace tombe malade tout chavire.

Ce livre es un peu long et cheesy de temps en temps mais toujours aussi bien. Et ce tome nous apporte deux nouveaux personnages, Cole et Isabel, et cela fait du bien de voir l'histoire du point de vu de ces deux là. Voir ce qu'il ce passe en dehors du coup de foudre des personnages principaux.

J'ai vraiment hâte de lire le dernier pour voir ce qu'il va ce passer et pouvoir un parler un peu mieux ^_^

In English:

The second tome of the Wolf of Mercy Fall saga.
I loved the first book. The story of this girl who falls in love with a werewolf and does everything she can to help stay human. This is so cute.

In the second tome Grace and Sam are still in love. The cure seems to be working for Sam and they live their lives in Mercy Fall.
But when Grace fall sick everything falls apart.

This book is a bit long and to cheesy from time to time but still very good. And this one brings us two new characters, Cole and Isabel, and it feels good to see the story from their point of view. To see what happens outside of Grace and Sam's love story.

I can't wait to read the last one so I can see what is going to happen et be able to talk about it a bit better ^_^

Split




Synopsis:

While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being. Though Kevin has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher, there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him - as well as everyone around him - as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.

Mon avis:

Wow! Cela es le premier mot que j'ai dit en sortant de la salle. 
Ce film es tellement bon! Du début à la fin!
Tout es parfait. Surtout James McAvoy. Le voir changer d'identité en identité nous prouve quel bon acteur il es (on avais pas besoin de preuve mais c'est officiel maintenant ^_^)
Je n'ai juste pas compris le caméo de Bruce Willis mais à part cela c'est un film que je conseil vivement.

In English:

Wow! This is the first word I said when I left the room.
This film is so good! From beginning to end!
Everything is perfect. Especially James McAvoy. Seeing him changing from identity to identity proves what a good actor he is (we didn't need proof but it makes it official now ^_^)
I just didn't understood Bruce Willis's cameo in the end but appart from that it's a film that you should really see. 

Lego Batman the movie

Synopsis

There are big changes brewing in Gotham, but if Batman (Will Arnett) wants to save the city from the Joker's (Zach Galifianakis) hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Maybe his superhero sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) and loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) can show him a thing or two.
Mon avis:
Je n'avais pas aimé "The lego movie" mais Batman étant mon super préféré j'ai décidé d'aller le voir. 
Je n'aurais pas dû. Cela à été une grosse perte de temps. 
Ce n'est pas marrant (nous étions une dizaine dans la salle et personne n'a ris) et c'est barbant (j'ai pensé à sortir de la salle à un moment).
Je doit avoué que les graphiques sont géniaux mais cela n'aide pas à donner une bonne histoire avec un Batman que tu n'a pas envie de frapper. 
Je crois que je vais abandonner avec les films Lego.

In English:

I didn't like "The lego movie" but Batman being my favourite super hero I decided to give it a go.
I shouldn't have. It was a waste of time.
It's not funny (we were around 10 in the room and no one laughed once) and it's boring (I thought about leaving the room at one point).
I have to admit the designs are awesome but it didn't help it being a good story. 
I wanted to slap Batman in the face the whole film. 
I think I'm going to give up with the Lego films

LaLaLand




Synopsis

Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma Stone) are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

Mon avis

Le trailer de LaLaLand à passé ici depuis des mois! 
Au début je me demandais ce que c'était, puis j'ai commencé à en avoir marre de les voir à la tv et quand la date de sortie à été annoncé j'ai commencé à être curieuse et puis hier je me suis décidé et suis allé le voir. 
Ce film es magique! 
Je m’attendais à beaucoup plus de chansons mais d'un côté ça me va car Emma Stone n'est pas la meilleur des chanteuse.
L'histoire es belle, les chansons sont belles (J'ai "City of stars" dans la tête depuis que je suis sorti du ciné xD), la musique es magnifique (j'ai toujours aimé le jazz mais là j'en suis amoureuse!) bref tout es beau! 
Et j'ai même trouvé Ryan Gosling génial dans ce rôle! Je n'ai jamais vraiment été fan de son boulot mais je doit avoué que là il m'a bluffé.
Je le conseil vivement.

English

The LaLaLand trailer has been showing in England for months!
At first I was wondering what it was, then I got bored to see it on TV all the time and when the release date has been annouced I got curious and yesterday I gave in and decided to go see it.
This film is magical!
I thought there would be more songs in it but in a way I'm ok with it as Emma Stone isn't the greatest singer.
The story is beautiful, the songs are beautiful (I have "City of Stars" stuck in my head since I left the cinema xD), the musique is amazing (I always enjoyed jazz but I am now in love!) everything is amazing!
I even found Ryan Gosling good in this role! I never been a fan of his work but I have to admit he is good!
You have to see it.
