Movie Review: Abominable

A magical Yeti must return to his family.
My son Liam James and I attended the preview of Abominable at Egrek Cinema in Parkhurst. If you have not visited this privately owned Cinema, do yourself a favour and book around sunset, the view from the Cinema Lounge is phenomenal.
From the studio that brought you How to Train Your Dragon, embark an epic 2,000-mile adventure from the streets of Shanghai to the breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes.

It was such a special movie and I cried at the end. It was the perfect movie to remind you that home is not a place, it is the people we love. I clutched Liam’s hand and he stroked my hair.
Suitable for all ages! 💜 Distinctive, emotive characters with the most amazing animation. Gorgeous, detailed scenes and a stunning film score. GO SEE IT! 😊

I wish you enough,

Wenchy

Die Ellen Pakkies Storie

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

I attended a VIP screening of Die Ellen Pakkies Storie tonight at Ster Kinekor.

It was one of two occasions where I was so emotional that I chose not to interact with the cast, but leave to cry in my car.

To grasp #DieEllenPakkiesStorie would be to open yourself to the unthinkable. A mother killing her adult son.

You have to see this heartbreaking, raw, unbelievable true love/life story to understand the depth of a mother’s love, and the width of her despair.

I cannot rate this movie higher than I do.

Jill Jazz Levenberg portrayal of Ellen Pakkies is authentic, crippling with emotion and without pretense. Wow.

Jarrid Geduld in the role of Abie Pakkies, is pure to the point of cringing at the pain, evil and psychologically feeling the desperation every time the word “Mommy” escapes. Phenomenal.

I wish you enough,

Wenchy

‘n Paw Paw vir my Darling!

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

Today I am hosting a brilliant guest writer, Yvonne Griffin who did a brilliant review of the movie, ” ‘n Paw Paw vir my Darling! You can look forward to more Afrikaans movie and book reviews from her. 

I wish you enough,

Wenchy

‘n Lekkerder lekker as wanneer n film by die boekstorie hou, is daar nie. N Paw Paw vir my darling stel nie teleur nie. Jeanne Goosen se fiktiewe karakters word geloofwaardig en sprankelend vertolk deur onverbeterlike akteurs/aktrise.  Kwessies word subtiel en humoristies aangeraak soos liefde oor die kleurgrens en homoseksueliteit. Enkele kragwoorde mag aanstoot gee.

Die storie van die Beeslaers word verwoord deur Tsjaka, depressed, veronregte  hond van die gesin van Frik du Preezstraat, Damnville.  Aan stuur van sake is Vleis (n man vir die nuwe SA na 1994) . Sy vrou Sofie stress haar letterlik uit haar hare oor hul kinders en swak ekonomie – n situasie wat met en sonder payday vinnig reggesien word met n braai en n bottel Cape Hope!

 Die Beeslaarkinders betaan uit Elvis, die oudste en enigste seun met sy Kerrie cherry. Die middelkind Rusty het op die paal geraak, baba weggegee, kraandrywer geword by Iscor met haar liefde, die kraamsuster Tabitha  Snygans. Die grootste rede tot verdriet is dikboud Mabel  “retrenched” wat droom van Hollywood en Charlize  Theron. Giepie Briel van oorkant die straat, karate wonder van formaat bied uitkoms ….”wat wil n vrou meer he?” ‘n G0eie werk, siekefonds, vrypas en als?

 Soufie se ma Sally Caravan, bewoon n karavaan op die werf, sy sien gesigte en voorbodes. Vleis se ma, Girla van Huis Herfsblaar, het nie n tekort aan vryers nie – veral Tango du Toit as n geheime agent steel die hart. Tussen die twee ma’s hang n fete oor n plastiese roos van Bles Bridges.

Meng in Cyril Posa, die tuinbeampte, Hillies Grobbelaar wat enige strike kan stil toyi-toyi en n pastoor wat net sy kudde tot by nagmaal wil kry en Sersant Kennedy Banda wat eerder n oorplasing vra Hillbrow toe …

 Vergete is nie Tsjaka wat sy hart verloor aan n verdwaalde franse poedel nie. Kennende Damnville loop tel hy maar die stukke op langs die blou wawiel beton en die golfbal posbus…

Heerlike tong in die kies vermaak!

n Paw Paw vir my Darling

Yvonne Griffin
