I hereby want to quote that famous Gwen Stefani song Hollaback to describe my feelings about this week’s theme: “this my sh*t, this my sh*t!” And that says it all really, because a movie based on true events is just the kind of sh*t I go for, and I love these types of movies a lot. Also, I’m hereby breaking my own special rule of not re-mentioning movies because I can’t help myself. I have to do it!
This post contains spoilers but in order to keep you from them I wrote this sentence.
The Impossible is a perfect example of a movie that has a big impact with its realistic take on the disaster that shocked the world. I’m not going to lie, there are moments in the movie that will be in my mind for a long time because of its cringe worthy showcase of battle wounds and emotions. Now, weeks later, after I thought my emotions had gone away, I re-watched some scenes and all of those emotions came rushing back. You simply can’t forget The Impossible because it thrives on the one thing that we all can relate to: survival.
