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.
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.
We are tired.
We’ve had enough.
This will not go on any longer. We won’t allow it.
I know times are hard for most and uncertain for us all, but here’s what I’ve been doing to keep me sane!
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.
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!!!
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 🕊
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!
