Though it is a zombie thriller movie. It isn’t typical walking dead film. The zombies are more alive than most people usually expect. The movie has more of drama than horror. The film is an idiom of the hardships of life and what parents and love once do for the once they care for.

Where you too busy on June to miss out on Disney’s fishy friends back on action. There is no need to panic, because around the end of January and early February it was release on Netflix.

People speculate that Disney allowed Finding Dory to be release in Netflix because it was a basic copy of the original. It was proven that it had similar concept. Both Movies had a missing family member, they had a near death experience with birds, and they have a group animals that say a repetitive word.

Finding Dory is about a forgetful fish accompanied by Disney’s other beloved fish Nemo and Marlin. She goes on a journey across the ocean remembering her past and trying to find her beloved parents. She meets her old friends and was reunited with her parents.

The overall moral of the story is that family is important and we should never lose contact with them.

Senior-write-this more like Senioritis

Many teens slack off during their last year of high school. Once they get their college acceptance letters, they take fewer classes, drop out of extracurricular activities and let their grades slide. Those who aren’t going on to college feel free to “zone out” in class. After all, they believe they’ll never use facts about Shakespeare or the Civil War once they graduate.

In the meantime, senior year often remains a waste of time in other people’s eyes and many adults don’t care. They may view senior year as a transition year between childhood and adulthood. It is the last chance to be free before taking on the responsibility of a job and rent or the challenges of a full load of college courses.


Just being a Hollywood High School senior at itself can be very stressful and make you wanna just let up but don’t. The walk at the bowl is sure to be worth it so keep going and finish strong.

During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (The Rock), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder, because she didn’t know how exactly to sail so throughout he had helped her the whole way.
