The best films released in 2020 you can’t miss

Published

on

Movie with Friends

Black Widow, Wonder Woman, Mulan, Harley Quinn … 2020 is the year of powerful women, as a result of the producers put their batteries in terms of feminism in the wake of the MeToo. Among the premieres of the best films we will see all that ration of superheroines (and of Disney action remakes, of course) and also great proposals in the other genres: since 1917 in war movies, Soul in animation, The invisible man in terror or two tough guys like Daniel Craig and Tom Cruise saying goodbye to James Bond and greeting Top Gun again respectively. Below, we show you the best 2020 premieres that you can watch in streaming from the comfort of your home.

Jojo Rabbit

Everything that Taika Waititi directs after resurrecting the Thor saga looks good, including this pot trip on a boy who is treated fatally in the Hitler Youth who invents an invisible friend: Hitler himself. It seems a very polemical approach but the result is very cute, especially the character of the boy’s mother, played by Scarlett Johansson. 

Dolittle

Another remake in the bag, in this case with Robert Downey Jr at the helm. This version is more faithful to the original tales, with the action brought to Victorian England. The eccentric doctor and the animals with which he has the ability to communicate undertake a great adventure to find a remedy for the disease that seems to be the queen.

Bad Boys For Life

It is the third and (supposedly) last part of Bad Boys, with its two original protagonists, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Action and humor in the 90s style with a random plot: the agents, already mature, meet again because a criminal has put a price on their heads. He no longer directs Michael Bay, but the Belgians Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.

Underwater

Like an Alien at the bottom of the sea. This is how this film with layers of action and horror has been described, starring the always magnetic Kristen Stewart. It goes on a descent to the depth of the ocean in which the unexpected appears.

Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey

Harley Quinn’s first solo film, the Joker’s minion played by Margot Robbie. In this story based on the DC comics, he allies himself with three other supervillains: Black Canary (Jurnee Smolett-Bell), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez). Badder than all of them is Ewan McGregor’s character, Black Mask.

Bombshell

More feminine power and doublet of Margot Robbie with this film also starring Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman. It’s like the back of the The Highest Voice serie, starring Russell Crowe, about the rise and fall of Roger Ailes, the creator of Fox News’ aggressive style. In the movie, the focus is on the women who managed to knock this sexual predator down.

Sonic the Hedgehog

How the first version had to look to make Sonic’s face change completely when the film was already made. The plot does not give much hope either: Sonic, the speedy hedgehog that 25 years ago became an icon of the Sega video games, looks for rings and flees from the government.

The Call of the Wild

Harrison Ford and a dog, like Richard Gere in Always by your side, Hachiko. Here the protagonist is this dog named Buck, who goes from leading a pleasant life in California to pulling sleds in Canada. It is based on the Jack London book and promises animal and landscape beauty and lots of emotion.

The Invisible Man

If you have ever thought that Elisabeth Moss has a gesture only suitable for horror movies in the last chapters of “The Tale of the Maid”, here is the confirmation. His face supports this new version of the H.G. Welles, with current echoes because it is still a very sadistic metaphor of the harassment that a man can exert on a woman that nobody believes. The story: A battering scientist apparently dies under strange circumstances, but his ‘widow’ becomes the victim of paranormal events when he tries to start a new life.

Onward

Pixar takes us to a world without humans in which unicorns, gnomes and mermaids live on an urban plan. The plot is that magic has left the planet and a couple of teenage elves set out to retrieve it.

The Gentlemen

Guy Ritchie picks up the pulse of his best cinema with this black comedy about the mess that is mounted when the rumor arrives on the street that the most prosperous marijuana dealer in London is going to leave his business, and many want to relieve him. The cast is top: Matthew McConaughey, Michelle Dockery, Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell and Charlie Hunnam

Spend All Your Time Online? Hobbies That’ll Get You More Hands On

Published

on

If you find yourself always online, it’s best to turn off the computer or phone and find something else to do. However, that’s a lot easier said than done! But if you’ve got a hands-on hobby in your back pocket, you’ll always have something fun and practical to turn to when you get bored. 

Staring at a screen all day isn’t healthy for you, and it’s good to find real ways to rest your eyes and get outside a bit more. As such, here are some ideas regarding the kinds of hobbies that’ll help you find enjoyment in things other than what’s going on online.

Woodworking 

If you’ve ever fancied yourself as a carpenter, this is the first step on your journey to putting huge items of furniture together for your own home. Get a bit of wood, get a carving knife, and see how you can manipulate the material to make something interesting. Take precautions and protect your hands, but have fun at the same time. And while you’ve not got a woodworking shop yet, even just a small set of tools can help you whittle your way to new cutlery, decorative figurines, and incredibly personal birthday and anniversary presents. 

Building Models

Miniatures are a very popular hobby, and all thanks to the time and love we have to put into making them. And when you’re a fan of building your own models, you can move into other item builds, such as attaching 80 lower receiver jigs to a rifle project of your own. But to get started, all you need is a set of models to crack open, snip off, and glue together. Once you’re done with this, you can start painting them and even put together your own playing team. It’s not just a one step hobby you can then display in a cabinet – there’s a lot of nuance to explore. 

Gardening and Landscaping

Gardening is a totally free hobby to pick up if you’ve already got a garden. You can take cuttings from bushes, trees, and plants that you see out and about and then try to cultivate the same greenery in your own garden. Indeed, it’s a great way to blow off steam as well as get your hands dirty, which is something a screen just won’t allow! But if you prefer cutting back in the garden, you can try out landscaping instead, which will help you to design the outdoor space you’ve always wanted to relax in. 

Bake Your Own Bread

Baking is one of the best hands-on hobbies out there. Why? Because you get to eat something when you’re finished. And baking bread is quite the artform, so you’ll need to really brush up on your skills here. Plus, a freshly baked loaf every morning is always something to look forward to – it’s just the cleaning that’s annoying! 

If you’re always online, it’s time to break the habit! Get out and remind yourself there are other things to enjoy.

Not Prioritizing Yourself Enough? Here’s How You Can Change It!

Published

boost-your-well-being

In today’s society, there’s this push to promote self-care. While society five or maybe ten years ago would see the term “self-care” as something selfish, fortunately now, mental health has become a larger concern. While toxic positivity is being pushed out, and the whole “put yourself first” mantra is slowly beginning to reign supreme, there’s one question to ask. How exactly can one put themselves first? Also, how can these self-care changes even boost your well-being? These are some helpful ways to achieve that!

Understand Your Life Goals, Values, and Purpose

When it comes to putting yourself first, it’s important to begin by thinking of your life goals, your values, and what type of purpose you want in your life. While society once deemed people as “selfish” for even considering this, it’s your life, and you’re entitled to live your life the way you want it. Is one of your life goals to travel? Then that’s great! Keep aiming for it!

Identify Your Wants and Needs

Everyone has their own wants and needs, everyone does. What are yours? While it’s important to put other people’s wants and needs in front of your own (such as if you’re a parent), just keep in mind that you don’t have to do this all the time. So think about it, what are some small ways you can put your own wants and needs ahead without it jeopardizing anyone else. Maybe it can be something small such as getting more sleep, or maybe even something huge such as changing careers. It’s entirely up to you to decide.

Take Time to Get Your Headspace Right

A great way to get yourself into the right headspace is through the beauty of travel. This is actually one of the biggest ways that people are treating themselves and putting themselves first. Changing up your environment and your routine through the power of travel can be one of the very best ways to get yourself feeling recharged and just completely breaking away from what may be stressing you out. Whether you opt into a long vacation, weekend trip, or a day trip, just allow yourself the chance to breathe, take a break, and recharge.

Treat Yourself

There’s nothing wrong at all with treating yourself to things. Whether you’re wanting to gift yourself a nice car you shopped with through edmunds, a fun vacation, or anything else. There isn’t anything wrong with gifting things to yourself as long as you have the disposable income to do it and if it’s in moderation.

Opt-Out of Social Media That’s Not Good for You

Social media is a double-edged sword. It can be a great tool for connecting with people and staying in touch with friends and an extension of our personal brand. However, many people are finding that social media is not the best tool for their mental health and well-being. If possible, try to opt-out of social media if you feel it’s not good for you. And instead, try to spend more time in nature or offline activities like hanging out with family and friends.

Building A Social Support System: An Essential Key To A Life Of Wellness

Everybody needs somebody, even if you believe you thrive better as a lone wolf or prefer being antisocial. While having a support system around you will help you get through life, it also offers far-reaching health benefits. These include helping you deal with loneliness and even improving your chances to beat unhealthy addictions. A strong social system can also be very helpful when going through stressful times, battling chronic illnesses, etc. But how can you build a healthy social support system around you, and what does it entail? 

It’s important to first understand what a social support system is. It comprises friends, family, loved ones, and peers that you can call or rely on, especially in times of need to provide support, respect, and care. Having a support system around you can provide wisdom and guidance through tough times. It can also provide strength and hope with a generous supply of understanding and compassion.

Although research has shown that building a social support system can help you through the tough times, the last thing you want to do is try developing one only when you feel stressed and need assistance. Creating a social support system is something you should do when you’re not under stress or in need. This way, you don’t end up relying on the wrong people.

Start by making a list of those already in your life, including friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors. When you are done with this, go through your list and highlight or underline those who have been supportive in your life and how. Next, make it a point to contact these people to check on them and find out how they’re doing. However, it’s important to note that you can also include professionals in your support system. For instance, counselors, psychologists, teachers, coaches, and healthcare professionals who have assisted you in difficult times, whether in the classroom, the gym, or in treatment programs you’re undergoing or already went through. 

Creating a healthy social support system also requires you to identify the barriers that have prevented you from creating healthy and meaningful connections with people. For instance, are you antisocial? Are you dealing with depression, drug abuse, or alcohol addiction issues that make it impossible to keep loving people around you? Once you identify your roadblocks to healthy social connections, find ways of removing them. For example, if you’re addicted to drugs and alcohol, you can find help through inpatient treatment programs. 

Another great way to build a social support system is to explore and embrace shared interests. It is easier to be surrounded by like-minded individuals who understand your emotions and can empathize in ways that others may not. For example, parents of a child with special needs will find immense support from other parents who share the same or similar difficulties. A great way to build such connections is by joining groups, associations, or clubs that share your interests and ensuring that you maintain regular interaction with the members.
