The Craft: legacy

Upon hearing they were making another craft movie I think we were all like ,” nah we don’t really need it”. After seeing the trailer, I think alot of us were still like eh either way. The trailer looked extremely watered down, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt that the movie didn’t want to give too much away. After watching the movie, I can honestly say the trailer was better and extremely misleading. The movie never makes up its mind whether it wants to be a remake or reboot and just completely falls short. The story follows lilly and her mom, who moves to live with moms new strange boyfriend. Right off the bat stepdad is giving creepy vibes, then enters his 3 sons who all have Bible names. So you can honestly see where this might go. Stepdad is super strict and creepy , and just gives you over all wrong vibes. Lilly starts school and after having a heavy ass flow on the classroom floor, meets the other 3 witches.

The problem with this film is that, unlike the original there are NOT character issues. Besides lilly and the stepdad, none of the other girls have any issues or a real story line. Lourdes , who’s played by trans actress zoey luna barley has any lines! And I felt from the teaser and the promo photos and the way the actress talked about lourdes ,that she was gonna be the main antagonist and the witch who would get out of control. She never did. Which upset me, she could’ve done so much more with her character,had they written her better. Tabby played by lovie Simone is the only black character, following the original. And has ZERO STORYLINE. Other than being the gorgeous token black girl. She had a moment when they were playing a game and she wished she had more black friends, but that was it. Another character that they could have done so much with and they didn’t. Gideon Adlon who plays adorable word vomit frankie, had the most memorable moments of the coven, but her jokes often fell flat and we’re too dry. They also could’ve done more with her character, but they didn’t. The ending with the main fight, was LACKLUSTER and I saw it coming from miles away.

Going into this movie not connecting it with the previous the craft and it’s a decent cute movie. Which I don’t think is what they were going for. Going into the movie comparing it to the craft original and you will be highly disappointed.

They could have made it so much darker and gave these characters more depth. But they made a disney version instead . It was cute but not what I expected. I give it a 3/5.

The Craft is finally here.

The Craft REBOOT OR REMAKE…I’m not quite sure which, but it’s finally here! Well the poster and trailer that it is. It seems to be trying to do something a bit different than the original while copying the original story line. So I’m honestly a bit confused on how it will play out. First impressions from the poster, I was HYPED. first impressions from the trailer, I’m big worried. It does look decent and the acting seems fine, it’s just when they’re showing the girls using magic it looks a little *disney* to me and cringe. I know sometimes trailers suck and don’t do the movie Justice. So I’ll hold out until I can actually watch the entire film to judge. I’m still excited for it, and of course it can’t replace or beat the original. But maybe it’s not trying to and it’s continuing the legacy, hence the movie name. They do make a few references to the original, so I’m very curious to see how it all plays out. You know the plot already, new lonely cute (white) girl moves to town and befriends a bunch of other lonely cute girls. I will say I like the little diversity we got going on this reboot. We have a CHOCOLATE black actress, a trans actress, a Jewish actress and then our white lead. I’m a fan of the actresses by themselves, so I’m also curious to see their on-screen chemistry. I also LOVE that it’s being released during October and just in time for the best Holiday ever-Halloween. It already gets points from me for that. Guess we will just have to wait until October 28 to see if it flops or it’s a Bop. I’m sure I’ll enjoy it either way. Are you down for the remake or over remakes ?! Let me know down below.

We must do better

I’m tired of writing RIP next to a black photo of a man or woman. I’m tired of feeling so heartbroken and defeated about being black in America. I’m tired of of white people pretending to be scared of us, just so they can get rid of us. I’m tired of fearing for my nephews.. brothers and cousin’s Everytime they leave the house to do normal Everyday tasks.

I’m tired

We are tired.

We’ve had enough.

This will not go on any longer. We won’t allow it.

#NOJUSTICENOPEACE

What I’ve been doing during “RONA”

I know times are hard for most and uncertain for us all, but here’s what I’ve been doing to keep me sane!

1.meditation

2.working out

3.doing facials

4.watching the same Netflix shows over and over(brings me comfort)

5. Everyday I start with the mantra “I’m grateful, I’m thankful, I’m blessed” it helps to put things into perspective.

I know things suck right now and everything is closed and people are dying rapidly, but we have to remember to follow what the surgeon general is telling us and to stay inside and wash it hands!! If everyone follows he rules set in place this will be over much sooner. It blows my mind how some governors aren’t taking this serious and letting people go out and crowd places. This will never be over if everyone doesn’t all come together.

Stay positive and stay inside!

I am not okay with this review.

Netflix’s new series I am
Not okay with this is now available to binge and boy did I binge all 7 episodes. Only took me about 2 and half hours(my personal best). The show is about syd( a normal teenage white girl) who is dealing with the sudden loss of her father. She’s angry and awkward and is secretly inlove with her best friend. She befriends Stanley whos super dorky and cool and who takes a liking to her. Syd then notices that everytime she’s
Really angry she has powers. I will say that’s one of the things the show has going for it! The soundtrack is also amazing. I also
LOVE that Netflix casts actual teenagers to play teenagers! The cast is adorable and the chemistry is there! Personal fave and probably everyone’s fave after watching: STANLEY
BARBER! He’s just a good bean okay. No spoilers here but seriously watch it so we can get a season two! The last episode HOLY SHIT, I didn’t see that coming. I do think they could have sped it up a bit or gave us more episodes, I feel like a bit was missing. But I guess that just leads way for season 2. I give it 4/5. I’m curious now how they’ll do a second season after the finale! Happy binge!!

Birds of prey preview

HI I had to upload this BEFORE even seeing the film because honestly I’ve HAD ENOUGH. Birds of prey was released Friday night and ALREADY( its only Saturday) people(men) are shitting on it and calling it a ” FEMINIST AGENDA”. And they’re tired of Hollywood pushing this theme/ agenda on them. They didn’t like charlies angels, the new terminator or Star Wars. They’re sick of it and it’s not realistic because they can’t relate to it. Okay sir who GIVES A FUCK?! This film is not made for sweaty 30 year men who live in their moms basement or have no social life! This is a female empowerment film made for… you guessed it WOMEN. It’s for us to see ourselves represented as strong leads and not just your sidekick love interests!!! The absolute FACT that you’re going to see this movie just to bash it and say “we don’t need another feminist film” PROVES the point that we in fact need to KEEP making these films until y’all get the fuck over it!!! This is the norm and NOT just some fantasy we’ve cooked up! Women and men are equals!! And we can do what you do and most of the time BETTER.

These films are directed by women, written by women and starring women for WOMEN. No one cares about your less than relevant opinion Adam. Take your sexist unwanted remarks elsewhere! But also thanks for spending 15 bucks to go see a movie you HATE. Giving us that top box office appeal!! And to the women who are also saying they hate these types of films: DO do BETTER JANICE. It’s not 1702. Do you wanna be a sidekick making less than men for the rest of your life?!!!Rant over. Go see the film and support these bad ass female actresses who had to train incredibly hard and did most of their own stunts!!! Support your local girl gang!! Women are the BEST!!!

Yes Demi 🕊

Demi returned to the stage for first time since 2018 after she overdosed. She sang her song “anyone ” that she wrote days before she overdosed . Just the amount of courage and strength it took to get up there in front of her peers and people she looks up to , and sing her absolute heart out about being depressed is amazing. I don’t know if I could’ve done it! Demis been through ENTIRELY too much to only be 26/27, but that’s what Hollywood/Disney does to you. These kid stars who grow up to have all these issues were put under too much pressure as children. To be the only one paying the bills and supporting an entire cast/ crew and your family is a lot for any teenager. So I’m not surprised that Demi struggles because she had those issues with herself before Disney and being a celebrity made it worse. I just actually NEED her to get a team that cares about her and watches over her. She could have died and that would’ve been it! I pray and hope her time away from the spotlight she really healed and took it seriously. Mental health is no joke and it will have you feeling all types of low and looking for a fix from anything . I’m not entirely happy she’s signed with scooter Braun, but if he can give her what Ariana has let’s do it. She’s got WAY too much talent And passion just to waste it all . Demi we ready for you 🕊

US

CAN I JUST SAY WHAT WE ARE ALL THINKING?! Lupita was majorly SNUBBED by this awards season. This entire movie and cast was! Lupita played not ONE but TWO characters and she played them with every last breath of her!! She carried this whole damn movie and ACTED her ass off! And you mean to tell me she didn’t get a Oscar nomination for this?! You mean to tell me this original script and screenplay didn’t get nominated? You mean to tell me Jordan peele didn’t get nominated?! I’m so tired! But yet we nominated scar-jo TWICE and for what? She’s good – yes, but she’s nowhere NEAR ON LUPITA LEVEL. Lupita sweetie I’m so sorry holly-racist doesn’t know talent!
