Notice for Review Requests

I receive review requests weekly. However, my personal schedule is hectic and I no longer review actively. (I also manage another blog called The Toronto Cafe and Food Blog). I do read every request sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take some time before I can review it. I am now looking to review adult fiction and self-help books instead of young adult fiction because I have grown out of it. If you are to request a review for either adult fiction or self-help, I will more likely to give it a shot.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. When I have the time, I may post a review. Thank you for understanding.

Watching on Wednesday: Tron: Legacy

Title: Tron: Legacy
Type: Movie
Age Group: Youth +
Release Year: 2010
My Rating: 5/5

Sam's (Garrett Hedlund) father is a famous virtual game designer who is missing for years. One day, Sam goes back to his father's old arcade where he accidentally transports himself to the digital world called The Grid. With dangers that threatens everything he has ever known, Sam must survive and defeat this cyber dimension.

I wasn't hyped up or anything to see this movie when it first premiered. When a friend suggested to go to the movies, I was like, "Okay, let's watch Tron" because there weren't many movies I wanted to see. Reaction? MY MIND WAS BLOWN AWAY!

I wish I am an animator or digital artist that creates these kinds of movies. The Grid is one hell of a world that I want to be in. It has concepts of things beyond your imagination and you wish for a day you could live it. My eyes were glued to the screen because I couldn't have enough of what Tron: Legacy had to offer. The plot is just so much better because of the setting it takes place in. Sure, the idea might not be completely original, but everything else was made in order to make it the movie of the year.

The characters and costume designs were also fabulous. You have all of these unique people making up the society of The Grid. You can get an idea of what role they play just by their outfit. Not to mention, they have the sickest beats! Honestly, this movie is a MUST-SEE!

PS. The movie is even better than the trailer.
