Raise Your Voice

Don't Hold Back. Don't Give Up.”

Whom among us doesn't have a dream, ambition? No One. All of us want to achieve something in our lives. Sometimes they are things that looks like impossible to achieve but still with hard work and focus we can do it. We can make it possible. But then at times there are people who will disagree still we do it as we know every decision we make does have consequences that will bring. I myself want to be a Psychologist or a Physical Therapist but i took Bachelor of Computer Science when i got in college. You ask why i did that? Why did i made my dream to be a Psychologist or Physical Therapist impossible at this time? Well it is because of a lot of factors. First money, we don't have enough money for me to pursue such education that might cost a lot. Second i got a scholarship which unfortunately didn't offer such course and i wouldn't let it slip out of my hands as i know it will help me a lot. Third BS ComSci is at its peek at that time. I might make my dream possible now that i graduated and got my own job, I just need to save money for it aside from me helping my family.

Raise Your Voice about a seventeen year old small town girl who loves to sing named Terri. She does have a brother named Paul who is rebellious but always support her and act as her inspiration and best friend and an overbearing father named Simon who even though supportive thinks that there are a lot more important things rather than singing. Terri brought tickets for them to see a Canadian band for their one night concert but her brother is grounded after having a fight with their father and so he can't go but Terri insisted that it is just a one night concert and that it'll be the last night of fun for them before Paul goes to college.

They had a great time but on their way home they encounter a major accident resulted for Terri being injured and sadly Paul being dead. Terri felt guilty it and that it was her fault that her brother died. What she didn't know is that her brother video almost everything that she does specially when she's singing. Paul secretly submitted a demo video of her doing singing and it resulted for her to be accepted to join the prestigious program. With Terri feeling guilty she give up her dream thinking that it'll be good to just stay on their town. Later on her mother let her realize that her brother wanted her to go but her father disagree but her mother wants otherwise as she wants to give everything to her only child remaining for her to be happy. For the first time Terri lies to her father and she goes to Los Angeles with the help of her mother and aunt.

At Los Angeles, struggles to fit in with other talented students. Competition arises as everyone wants to have the scholarship which to be given to one student at the end of summer. With her being intimidated she can even do better on her class. Later, she gain confidence and make friends including Jay and Mr. Torvald their teacher, mentor and friend to her. Mr. Torvald showed her the video that her brother sent to them that resulted for her to be there. She cried but she later realizes that her brother did it because he wants her to go for her dreams and so she partnered with Jay and they make their music together.

Jay and Terri composes a song entitled Someone's Watching Over Me and there she overcomes her grief and sing farewell to her brother. They didn't win the scholarship grant still they're happy. Another thing Terri's father favor that she'll continue to pursue her dream.

The film shows the characters faith with God in time of crisis and that they find comfort knowing that God is beside them even they felt down and loosing confidence.

Sleepover Movie Review

Sleepover

The Rules are set. The game is on.”


Have you guys experienced a sleepover? I had experience sleeping with my friends house with my other friends but i can't really say that it was a “sleepover” thing. It wasn't the sleepover whom we only have to have fun, conversions about such things and all that but it was a sleepover at my friends house to create some of our projects. Though we need to finish our projects still we take time for us to talk with some things like our lives, boys and all that. It still fun eating crackers and noodles with your friends while having conversation about the project.

Sleepover movie was about four friends whose on the summer before their first year in high school. Julie planned to have a sleepover on their house with her girl friends including her best friend Hannah who's moving away the next day. But the sleepover became an all night scavenger hunt against their popular girls rivals. They enter it to cast off their less than cool reputation. Having joined on it they had to steal her friend dad's car, sneak into a club, and have a first kiss with her biggest crush.

Determined to win and overthrow the popular girls made of Stacie and Liz and some other social girls they push all their limits. With the girls doing their task, the skater boy friends pursue Julie and others for them to ruin her party not knowing about the all night hunt of the girls they follow and joined them against to popular girls hoping to gain some popularity.

Stacie, is the so called leader of the popular girls and she was a friend to Julie before. She has her own problems as she didn't say to her friends that she and her boyfriend broke up. But she keeps on maintaining her reputation of being a popular girl.

The not so popular girls are consist of Julie, Hannah, Farrah, and later on Yancy. Julie is shy girl who hopes that her parents sees her as a maturing teenager and not a baby after all she already got a crush named Steve. Steve is gorgeus and a popular high-schooler. Joining her on out-doing the popular girls is her bestfriend Hannah. Hannah is pretty, smart, and preparing to move away the next day and determined to make her last day with Julie the best of their lives. She convinces Julie to accept Stacie's challenge and told her that it is a chance of a life time and that she might probably meet Steve. And also take part of the challenge is Farrah, a unique girl who loves to design her new clothes with a very outgoing personality. And their new recruit Yancy who is a slightly heavy girl which always tease by the popular girls because of her weight.

Finally Julie and her friends outrank the popular girls. She had to left the party because she and Steve kissed as her brother already called saying that her mother is to be home. The next day her friends goes home with Hannah moving away. They cried but they knew that soon they'll be together again and that they they know they will be friends forever. In the end, Julie got her first kiss from Steve who visited her at home.

The movie told us to just believe in ourselves and trust your friends and you'll definitely have what you want and accomplish anything in front of you.
