What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993) Appreciation Post
I don’t know how I hadn’t heard about this movie sooner. I watched it yesterday and I loved it so much. Johnny Depp was really good in that role, it made me appreciate him a lot more than I previously did, having only seen him in the Lone Ranger and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies up to this point. And I will never cease to be amazed by Leo DiCaprio’s ability to play every role he gets completely flawlessly. He did such an amazing job playing a lovable yet sometimes annoying autistic kid, something not a lot of actors could do very well. The story was amazing, I was very invested in Gilbert and Becky’s relationship throughout the movie. Also I loved John C. Reilly and Crispin Glover’s roles, they both did a great job. Overall I think this movie should be a lot more praised than it is. Fantastic film.

Soy Luna Season 2 Review
"Luna (Karol Sevilla) is on her way to revealing truth, while waiting, hopefully, for her reunion with Matteo (Ruggero Pasquarelli). ... The relationship between the two, coupled with the help of Nina (Carolina Kopelioff), will mark a new personal path for Luna and help her investigate the mystery of her past."
We finally get to see the long waited conclusion of Luna finding out about her past. I cried like a baby at the end of season two when Luna finally fits the pieces together regarding her past and her biological parents. Honestly, the audience already knew this information from season one but a lot of drama, lies, and schemes had to lead up to this long waited conclusion.
Luna goes through a lot of changes in Season 2. She goes through a journey of self discovery with her two best friends; Simon and Nina.
Matteo has to make some big decisions for his future since he is in his last year of school. His father wants him to go to Oxford and go into the family business. Matteo finds himself having to make tough choices this season. Matteo decides to be a musician and this causes conflict with his father. He ends up pushing Luna away in most of the season in hope of protecting her but this backfires.
Simon helps Luna discover her birth parents this season. Simon and the band break up and he tries to have a solo career. He wins an award to make an music album and tries to deal with his new music manager who wants him to do these schemes so he can be famous. Simon concentrates on his music this season.
Nina grows in this season as her boyfriend(Gaston) helps her with her fear of singing in public and she learns to skate to surprise Gaston. Nina helps Luna with finding information regarding her biological parents.
Matteo and Luna finally get together in this season which is amazing. We have some amazing episodes of them being in love. The conflict comes from Matteo giving in to the music managers schemes and this upsets Luna. He lets her down multiple occasions throughout the season.
Nina and Gaston are in a relationship in the beginning of the season. They are so cute and in love. They are all good until Nina sends in an application to Oxford for Gaston. Gaston was going to stay for Nina and was upset when he finds out she sent in the application. They break up for a period of time until they come back together. They end up having to have a long distance relationship at the end of season 2 because Nina has to stay and Gaston decides to go to Oxford.
Ambar and Simon are my least favorite couple. Ambar burns down the rink and Simon finding this out was the thing that broke him. There is no denying that they have a connection. Simon sees something good in Ambar and cannot deny that he loves her. They fell in love in season 2 but this was by chance as Ambar was using Simon to hurt Luna but fell in love instead.
Ramiro and Yam are a cute couple in season 2. They come back together as they find they still love each other. They are best friends to lovers story. Yam tries to deal with Ramiro's conceited and selfish nature. Ramiro is really supportive of Yam's singing in season 2.
In season 2, there was a lot of good songs that did not disappoint me.
Soy Luna season 2 was amazing. The roller dancing and the music was incredible. The plot came to an outstanding conclusion in the end of season 2.
