Poms:  A Heartwarming Movie Review

Poms: A Heartwarming 2019 Movie Review

This movie is truly inspiring! It revolves around Martha, an introverted elderly woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer, who sells her house and moves into a retirement home. Initially resistant to making new friends, the warm and friendly women in the retirement home eventually win her over. Despite a rocky start involving a call to security, Martha forms a close-knit group, particularly bonding with Sherly.

The group decides to pursue cheerleading, but they face challenges, including a member breaking her leg, opposition from one of their family members, and the retirement home that voted their cheer group out. Undeterred, they persevere and achieve unexpected success after their routine goes viral. The film, "Poms," delivers a powerful message that it's never too late to pursue dreams, emphasizing the importance of resilience and the value of having an audience, no matter your age.

What sets this movie apart is its relatable characters. Every member of the cast, including the main character, displays behaviors that resonate with all of us.

If you haven't seen "Poms" yet, it's currently available on Netflix. Released in 2019, this American comedy film, directed by Zara Hayes, brings heartwarming moments and a powerful message to the audience. The impressive box office performance, reaching 16.5 million USD, reflects its resonance with viewers.

I hope you enjoy watching "Poms" as much as I did!

I will give this movie a 4.5/5.
Orion and the Dark

"Orion and the Dark" is about a little boy who is afraid of almost everything. He fears the dark, clowns, cell phone waves causing cancer, monsters, haircuts, mosquito bites getting infected, falling off a skyscraper, saying good morning and sounding like Goob dorning!, bees, dogs, and the ocean. He is anxious about being responsible for his team losing and terrified of locker rooms and Richie Panic, who calls him crying Orion. Richie bullies him, taking his art book and turning to a page where he has written all the things he fears, including Richie's name. Just before Richie walks away after bullying him, Orion says thank you to Richie.

He doesn't know why he did that but is quite disappointed in himself for not being able to stand up for himself.

The school had to visit the planetarium, but Richie didn't give his parents his permission slip. He fears being packed inside the school bus alongside his classmates. He is scared the bus might crash, and if they make it to the planetarium, the giant models of the solar system hanging from the ceiling might fall on him.

He really likes Lisa but can't walk up to her. He is afraid that if he goes to the planetarium, sits next to her, and their hands touch, he will have a panic attack and become a running joke around the school. So, he hides his permission slip from his parents. When his teacher asks him, he says his parents won't let him go to the planetarium and that they don't believe in space, but it's all lies.

He is also afraid of coming back home and finding his parents have sold their house and moved while he was at school. His fear is stopping him from doing a lot of things.

His dad finds the permission slip under the couch but he tells his parents he doesn't want to go. That night, his mom checks on him before bedtime. When she finishes, she turns off the light. He jumps from the bed and asks her to read him a bedtime story, but she doesn't have time, so he asks her to leave the door open so that light can come in, which she does.

When she leaves, he inserts different socket lights that blow off due to high voltage, and he panics. Of all the things he is afraid of, he is most afraid of the dark. He covers himself and turns on the flashlight, but it isn't working well. Soon, he starts screaming, "Darkness, why can't you leave me alone?" and darkness visits him.

Dark tells him millions of kids are afraid of him, but he is harmless. Dark doesn't like the way humans think about him. He says everyone is against him. He tells Orion that he is just a regular guy trying to do his job. He says people hate him, but he is just trying to do his job. He wishes people would give him a chance.

Orion feels bad for Dark and starts speaking with him. He tells Dark the list of people who bullied him. Dark wants to help him stop his fears and brings up an idea that will help him appreciate the beauty of the night instead of being terrified all the time. Initially, Orion refuses, but after giving it thought and remembering how he was bullied, he accepts, and Mr. Dark takes Orion for a night ride in the air.

They meet the night entities, and this is when the story becomes even more interesting. One thing is evident: Mr. Dark also has his insecurities, which he has to overcome.

This animation will give you a different way to view things if you fear the dark a lot but the story is a bit confusing.

There has been a new twist to interior design, and décor items have evolved with the production of new designs.

I know that can feel frustrating sometimes, especially if you are planning on meeting your date for the first time, just starting a fresh relationship, trying to rekindle your love, or being invited to a Valentine's Day party. The urge to impress can be overwhelming, coupled with not wanting to be overly dressed. We can all relate to that feeling, but, as you know, ladies, we got each other back.

Denim is still the main chick.

Denim never goes out of style, and if you just want to give the less is more look with no stress, wear a denim dress.
