Knives Out: Movie Review

Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, LaKeith Stanfield, Jaeden Martell, and Katherine Langford in Knives Out (2019)

My thoughts/reaction to Knives Out is that I enjoyed the movie, it was interesting how the film used some classic mystery thrillers/comedies like Clue, Murder on the Orient Express and more, also the TV show: Murder, She Wrote 

 

The cast did a great job in the film, In my opinion is that Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Lakeith Stanfield and Christopher Plummer…their performances were excellent

 

One of my favorite quotes in the film is Daniel Craig’s character private detective, Benoit Blanc saying: “This is a twisted web, and we are not finished untangling it, not yet.” 

 

I give this film an A+. it will be one of my favorite murder mystery films along with Clue and Murder on the Orient Express 

 

I know it’s too early to talk about a sequel. But an interview with Collider, writer/director Rian Johnson mentioned he would love to turn Knives Out into a series revolving around Daniel Craig’s Detective Blanc solving different mysteries.

In my opinion, I would love to see it.

Friendships Grow at SEEDs for Autism

 

Kyle, Jeff and Mallory share a smile during lunch break.

 

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’
― C.S. Lewis

SEEDs for Autism is a non-profit organization that provides education and vocational training for young adults on the autism spectrum.

It sounds pretty amazing,
and it is…

But it’s so much more than that.

Truly, SEEDs is a life-changing program.

I have watched shyness turn into confidence.
I have seen meltdowns fade as coping skills develop.
I have seen distraction evolve into focus..
but, perhaps best of all –
I have seen these wonderful people find friends.

What SEEDS means to me

What Seeds means to me

2/16: At the time of writing this I have been working at SEEDS FOR AUTISM for over a year. During this time I’ve come out of my shell a lot. In High School I was always the quiet person in class that wouldn’t talk anyone and no one would even try to talk to me. I did have a couple of friends from Middle and Elementary school that I would hang out with at lunch and on the bus, but we didn’t have any classes together. I secretly felt kind of lonely but was to afraid to actually talk to new people. After I graduated, my family took me to a job/program/school fair where SEEDS had a booth. It seemed interesting, so that summer I signed up for the summer program -and it was a lot of fun. I met some nice people who I became acquaintances with, but I still didn’t feel at home/comfortable yet. Then in December, I joined the official SEEDs program. I was still pretty nervous, until someone who also works at SEEDS said he remembered me from the summer program and welcomed me into the SEEDS family. I felt bad because I didn’t remember him.  After a while though we became good friends and still are. I started talking about similar interests, things that are on my mind, how life is going, and now I have many new friends! Now I feel like I can make friends, share what I have to say, and I am slightly more confident. I am now truly part of the SEEDS family!

5/25: Today I am leaving SEEDS, I still feel the same as I did when I wrote the paragraph above. I am leaving because SEEDS has given me confidence to follow a new opportunity. I will miss all of my friends and all of my instructors very much, but it’s time to move forward with my life, and SEEDS FOR AUTISM has given me the knowledge to do so successfully. I have learned skills and made things here that I never thought I would ever be able to. I am very grateful for SEEDS FOR AUTISM and everyone here for helping me with so much. The only thing I can say now is, thank you!
