Finding The Moral Of The Story | Enola Holmes

Eleven grew into a beautiful lady. If you’re a fan of the series Stranger Things, you probably know who Millie Bobby Brown is. I see Millie Bobby Brown as part of this new generation of great actors, her acting in Stranger Things was such a stand out performance, acting with little dialogue and mostly only with her eyes, and her facial expressions.

And, now Millie Bobby Brown stars in a Netflix original film Enola Holmes, along with huge stars such as Henry Cavil, Sam Claflin, and the great Helena Bonham Carter. Enola Holmes is about the estranged little sister of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. Enola grew up with her mother, teaching her essential skills to live in a man’s world. But then her mother went missing and that’s where Enola’s adventure of finding her mother starts.

If you haven’t watched Enola Holmes yet, there are minor spoilers here.

Honestly, this show is so fun to watch because of Millie and the quirkiness of her character. But most importantly, I love the film because of the message they try to show which is very timely. This is the part of the blog where I talk about what I learned and what kind of message I got from the movies that I watch. So, here are some powerful messages from Enola Holmes:

The Feminist Message

The message of women empowerment was very strong in the film but it was also light to watch. It wasn’t shown in something too serious that you’ll find it a bit cliché. Basically, the film shows how girls live back then. How women should conform to a standards set out for them. Women are expected to just do these things to have them called a well-grown and well-respected lady. And Enola grew up not doing those things, like learning embroidery, wearing corset, and only wearing clothes that satisfy the society. The amount of expectations and unfairness a women face daily are too much back in the day.

Check Your Privileges

There was also one scene in the film where it shows how most privilege people have no interests in changing how the society works because it doesn’t affect them, how they are blind with injustices because the current society that they live in works for them. That scene was so powerful, and the message is so on point especially today. There are so many voices not being heard, and in order to be heard you have to make some noise, that privilege people are so naive or just plainly ignorant to recognize these injustices.


Create A Better World For Your Kids

Warning! This is a major spoiler.

Enola’s mother left her because she wanted to change the world for Enola. She wanted Enola to grow up in a better society for all the women. She was planning protests that will endanger Enola. It was such a great message, it wasn’t really focused on but I see it as Eudoria (Enola’s mother) taught her everything to survive but I guess all of those skills weren’t enough, she decided that the world should adjust and not her daughter, and not women. It also shows how mothers would go to the end of the world to give the best for their children.


We Choose Our Own Path

I think this is the main moral of the story. We create our own destiny, we create our own purpose. We should not let the society or anyone dictate what we should become. Enola’s other brother Mycroft forced her in learning how to act like a “true lady”, because Mycroft believes that is how women should act. But Enola broke all expectations and ignored the standards, she did her own thing and followed what she wants.


Overall, this movie was a fun watch. The acting was great, the message and pacing were also great. It is a must watch. 👏🏼

Cancel “Cancel Culture” #JustSaying

I want to say some things about this trend called “Cancel Culture”. I don’t know why people nowadays became so entitled to their opinions that they think it’s okay to “cancel” someone just because they dislike or got “offended” by a simple statement of a celebrity or personality that they read in too much.

I’m referring to Tyler Joseph’s tweet that some people got offended. He made a joke about using his platform to talk about important things.

I get how “woke” people are now, especially with everything that has been going on with the world. It’s a crazy world right now, and it’s nice to see how people are socially aware about politics and world issues but forcing someone to speak about these issues is a bit too much, people has ways and process to choose what they believe in. Most people are still trying to figure it out, some people are neutral about stuff. And with Tyler Joseph, his “fans” were forcing him to use his platform to spread a message, he made a joke that I actually find corny lol. But people read in too much to it. Someone said that he mocked his fans with that tweet, when in fact Tyler has a dark and weird sense of humor at times. Check his tweets, it’s full of them. He even makes fun of his fans. Anyways, this guy has been using his platform ever since, with his music he saved thousands of lives (including me). And people don’t really need to post it online as a way to support a cause. And you can’t force someone to speak up, they will if they want to.

It’s funny how “fans” treat celebrities and personalities, like they are owed, and these celebrities should do whatever their fans ask them to do. If you don’t like what people does or say on social media, then stop following them instead of spreading it more, which adds more toxicity to this world. This cancel culture needs to stop, I feel sorry for celebrities sometimes they’re not allowed to make mistakes, that’s why a lot of them don’t really go on social media nowadays. And by the way, what effect does this really do? What does cancelling someone does for you? There’s so many bad things happening in this world, and cancelling someone does not solve it. So, I’m cancelling cancel culture. #JustSaying


What are your thoughts about this “Cancel Culture”?

[CURRENTLY WATCHING] New Girl TV Series (2011-2018)

I have a new obsession (I’ve been using this word a lot lately lol) New Girl is about a very optimistic and peculiar girl moving in with three different guys as a roommate in a Los Angeles loft.

From left to right: Schmidt, Cece, Jess, Nick, and Winston

This is such a fun and awkward series to watch. Their comedy makes you want to cover your eyes because of how embarrassing and weird their characters are. Especially, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) one of the 3 guys in apartment 4D. A metrosexual kind of guy, and can be overly passionate at everything that he likes. While, Nick (Jake Johnson) is the complete opposite, a college drop out law student turned bar tender. Usually, described by his roommate as a guy with no direction and doesn’t take care of himself. Winston, (Lamorne Morris) is a failed international basketball player, and bad with conversing with girls. Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is the New Girl in apartment 4D, she’s a teacher who got dumped by her cheating boyfriend. She changes the dynamic in the loft, which I’m not really sure if it is for the better or something. Oh, and also we have Cece, (Hannah Simone) Jess’ gorgeous model best friend. Throughout the show so far, she and Schmidt are an item but they kind of have of an on and off open relationship which sort of frustrates me (I want them to be together).

I haven’t finished this series yet, I’m actually just on season 2 out of 7. And so far, I’m so invested. Zooey Deschanel (Jess) is so funny and adorable to watch, her character is gullible and kind of ditzy which adds to the cuteness of her character. This show is just so good, so far. I love how the 3 guys respect Jess as their roommate, it doesn’t make you feel awkward because a girl is living with 3 guys. They were actually really protective towards Jess.

I have yet to finish this series but I am so eager to share it with you guys already. I also found out (a little trivia) that this series inspired one of the household characters in Sims 4 (Roomies Household).

I recommend this to anyone, who enjoys comedy shows. 😊

Has anyone watched it already? Don’t spoil it to me though 😄

[CURRENTLY LISTENING] THESE TWO WINDOWS BY ALEC BENJAMIN

I was trying to decide what songs to include in a playlist to share with you guys, but lately I’m stuck listening to Alec Benjamin’s album These Two Windows. He became known for his song Let Me Down Slowly in his last album Narrated For You. But I’ve known him before that from his songs Paper Crown, and The Way To Nowhere, I’ve been following him on Youtube and I kind of fangirl for a while especially when he liked one of my tweet.

Credits to MusiCares via Twitter

After my obsession with Taylor Swift’s Folklore album which I still listen to a lot but to get a break from the somberness of that album, I switch to Alec Benjamin every now and then to get a different kind of chill vibe that still makes me contemplate about life.

This album is only consisting of 10 very well written songs. If you know me, I’m more of a lyric person than a melody type of person when it comes to listening to songs. I don’t care if it’s catchy or not as long as I connected with the lyrics and if the lyrics is poetic enough that when you remove all the sounds and productions, it will still make sense and it will still be enjoyable to take in.

I compare Alec Benjamin with Ed Sheeran, he exerts that same energy in some level. He has a story based songs, and he writes all of his songs which I really admire from artists these days. If I am going to describe his sound, it’s a chill pop vibe and sad bops if that makes any sense. It’s the kind of songs that makes you bob your head, makes you think, and makes you sad but it’s relaxing at the same time.

Some of my fave lyrics from the album:

I’m just a tenant, paying rent inside this body and I
Got two windows and those windows, well I’ll call them my eyes
I’m just going where the wind blows, I don’t get to decide.

Mind Is A Prison

Trying to light a match in the rain
Like flying a kite in a hurricane
Like riding a bike with no air or chain
On a broken road, it’s a losing game

Match In The Rain

I’m just being realistic, being honest with myself
I’ve tried being optimistic but it doesn’t seem to help

I’m Not A Cynic

I swear that I’m not a cynic, my glass just has no water in it today.

I’m Not A Cynic

Well, at first I thought I’d have to bear this weight by myself
But when my knees were getting weak and I was in need of help
You were there to take away the pain that I felt

Demons
