When I first heard about this film I was kinda of interested but kind of not. It just didn’t make any logical sense as to why anyone would hear screaming from a field of “tall grass” and run into it and try to help. But I guess if everyone just called the cops first then we wouldn’t have a film. To say this movie was highly disturbing would be a understatement. The movie follows a brother and sister on a road trip, who while driving by hears cry’s of help from the tall grass . The brother and sister then are lured into the grass and all its sinster secrets it holds. Overall the film was pretty good. I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if they did it justice or not. But as a Stephen king fan I can say it was very weird and disturbing and disgusting, so they must have done something right. There’s plenty of “omg wtf” scenes but one scene in particular that has stayed with me since watching it Saturday. And let’s just say it gave me straight mother/Jennifer Lawrence vibes. I give in the tall grass 8/10. Patrick Wilson was AMAZING and plays a creepy scary asshole too well. The other acting was alright compared to his. In my opinion he carried the whole film. I would watch it again but maybe skip over certain parts.
It’s only taken me a month and seeing this film twice for me to write a total NON bias review. To start things off: I LOVED THIS FILM( almost as much as the first). It was the perfect follow up to the first film. The adult actors were PERFECTLY casted. And it was almost uncanny seeing how much they copied the mannerisms of the younger cast. The acting was brilliant and I was surprised to leave the theater feeling so full of emotion and heartbroken. This film left me so sad. Which is weird , because I know it’s supposed to be a “horror film ” but I just didn’t find it scary at all.🤷🏾♀️ I mean there were some scary jump moments don’t get me wrong. But it was much more funnier and heartbreaking than scary. I DID not like the graphics and how the monsters or the adult losers fears looked. It looked so cgi and fake I couldn’t help but laugh. I wished they would have used more practical effects instead. It totally takes you out of the moment because it looks so CHEESY. They also cgied pennywise way to much in this film for my liking. Like it wasn’t necessary at all. Overall it was still a great end to pennywise and a great follow up film. Bill skarsgaurd is amazing. And I would love to see him in more big roles. ( and I’m also down to see him as the joker or any other villain in this new Batman). Bill hader totally surprised me as Richie. I knew he could bring the comedy but I was shocked when he brought the drama and made me cry so hard. Everyone did amazing. I don’t think anyone outshined anyone. They all played their parts BEAUTIFULLY. Shout out to Stan the man for breaking my heart 15 mins into the film. Also the homophobic opening scene was hard to watch and unsettling. But perfect to open the film. I give this masterpiece a 5/5. We will let the cheesy graphics slide because everything else was AMAZING.
Normani normani normani!! I’ve said this from the beginning and I’ll say it now- FIFTH HARMONY WAS HOLDING YOU BACK MY DEAR. When it comes to performing and dancing Normani is it! She gives 2210 percent when shes on stage and kills it every time. And the vmas was no exception. Although she lip synced most parts and one of her dancers couldn’t get her jacket off 🤦🏾♀️, she was still one of the best performances of the night. Period. My only problem with miss normani is she hasn’t mastered signing flawlessly live. But honey once she does…. it’s over for EVERYBODY. Bravo sis. Bravo 👏
let’s talk about how important this moment was this past Monday on MTVs VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS. Now we can always count on lizzo to deliver an amazing performance, but we can also count on it to be for the culture and infused with self love. She’s had past performances of getting her hair braided on live tv, a church choir signing with her , and twerking while flawlessly playing the flute. This performance was no different. She had ALL full figured dancers who rocked Afro puffs! Until one moment where lizzo gave a speech about loving yourself no matter how hard the world makes it for you to which the dances then snatched off their Afro puffs to reveal cornrows❤️👏 to see that much beauty and diverse body loving types on national tv was Beautiful. Not to mention the crowd went nuts and gave her a standing ovation!!! She was without a doubt the BEST performance of the night (normani came in second). I know that moment meant so much to so many little full sized chocolate girls who don’t have long blonde hair. Lizzo is important! She’s proud of her body and embodies all of her imperfections!! She wears them proudly. And let’s everyone know” I’ll never be your side chick ” and “you could’ve had a bad bitch”. Man I wanna be like lizzo when I grow up. Her performance nearly brought me to tears!! Bravo lizzo. Bravo.🔈👏
I don’t know what’s really going on behind the scenes with little mix and their record labels. But what I do know is bounce back could have been an American HIT. It’s right on wave with the sexy twerk music we have on our radios right now. It’s more tame but fits right in with my type, twerk and big ol freak. Had their label promoted them right in AMERICA and not just London. This could’ve blew them the fuck UP. I just don’t get it. They’ve switched labels and still only getting promoted in the uk. Not to mention the girls seem bored because they’ve all been on about 30000 holiday vacations. And now are getting ready for their Europe/UK tour. I’m just so confused as to why they pushed the Australian tour dates back for “promo” and then didn’t do any promo. What is going on with little mix!!?
(LONG DRAMATIC SIGHHHHHH) where to stare with this film. First things first the acting from all parties were amazing and almost saved this movie. Second the film started off so strong and had many scenes were I was excited to see where we were going only to find we were going nowhere. The premise of this film is a bunch of teenagers befriend a odd lonely lady they nickname “MA”. They start partying with her after she continues to buy alcohol for them. They then of course start to notice something might be off about MA, but not enough to stop them for partying in her creepy basement. One of the MANY things that annoyed me about this film was the parents!! None of them noticed their kids were partying with MA until towards the end of the film. And I’m assuming this film was supposed to take place over a couple of months. So that is worrisome in itself. Another things that bothered me was her “kills”. Now not every kill needs to be some big Hollywood saw type thing. But her kills were made to be like normal. Like hey I just ran over a lady and kiddnapped a man. No biggie. The ending SUCKED. Like every creepy thing they had to offer in film we saw in the trailer. And that one scene with all the teens towards the end( where they all SURVIVED) was just so lackluster. They could have done SO much more with the ending and this film entirely! But decided to play it super safe. Maybe the pg13 rating stopped them from going there. Or maybe we’ve become so used to gory and jump scares that we don’t like horror films without them. Any way you put it this film could’ve went straight to Netflix. I give it 3 out of 10, and that’s just for the acting alone. I would watch it again but just to watch it or have on in the background for Halloween or something. I’m glad I didn’t go see this is in theaters.
After was the biggest indie-romance film of 2018!! ( take that haters and doubters). So it was only natural and right that we get our sequel: after we collided . And it seems Ana has heard the fans cry’s and paid attention to how disappointed we were in the MANY small but BIG changes that were made to our film. Changes that made NO sense really. So now we have a script written by miss Ana Todd herself, an rated r film and a new director. Our new and better fearless leader is the one and only Roger Kumble. He directed pretty little liars and 90s hit cruel intentions!!!!! So let’s just say we’re in for a TREAT. And we have been treated to a bunch of behind the scenes photos and videos already. AND we have our Vance, smith and trish! And Caroline forbes herself is playing KIMBERLY!!!!! They also recasted ken and Karen. But they had minor parts in after that it doesn’t really matter. And the recasting fits much better for this film. Hero and Josephine and the rest of the young cast are still around though not to worry. After we collided is my favorite of the series so I’m SUPER excited!!!! We’ve gotten major upgrades in every department, so here’s to a number one film in the world for 2020. Here’s also hoping this one saves the first one which didn’t do our book justice.
So I saw Spider-Man far from home last week and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. Don’t get me wrong I’m a HUGE marvel whore. And I generally get excited about anything they produce. But I’ve just had a hard time getting into the 3rd spiderman. We had Toby McGuire who I LOVED. Then I fell inlove with Andrew Garfield and got used to him being Spider-Man. Then BAM they recast him after only two HIT films. So I’m honestly just getting around to loving Tom Holland as Spider-Man and dare I say it(HES THE BEST SPIDERMAN🤷🏾♀️). He’s the only actor out of all 3 that’s the closest to actual Peter Parker’s age and it seems real to me. Like Tom actually looks like an adorable science nerd who could also be a superhero. I believe it more when it’s coming from Tom. I hadn’t seen Spider-Man homecoming until a year after it was released. And was so happy when I found out iron man was in it and that made me like it even more. I also liked how he was introduced in captain America and then went on to be in the last two avengers. Getting the fans used to Tom and making us fall inlove with him even more. But back to the review. This film started off VERY slow. So slow I was a little worried I was gonna hate it. But it picked up and when it did that’s when the show really started! Jake gyllenhall was a standout to me!and possibly the best part (besides tom obviously)!! We all knew he was the villain but still we all sat there and got pulled in by those big blue eyes and charming personality and thought we could trust him. He was a brilliant villain. Overall it was a solid 8/10 for me. It started off too slow for my tastes. But I would definitely see it again. And Tom Holland is the best SPIDERMAN EVER. (Please don’t recast him and do ANOTHER SPIDER-MAN. I’m tired).
Celebrating the upcoming release of IT:chapter 2 and because I’m SO EXCITED,Here’s a question that’s been on mind since the remake in 2017. What’s the general public’s favorite? It the original or the remake?! Mines is the remake 100%. Even though the original scared me as a child and made me afraid of clowns, the remake blew it out of the water! So which is it…. original or remake?
“I died and you lied”-George
Please tell me why George always gets the best one-liners?! Anywho we’re back in gear and on our way to derry once again to defeat pennywise🤡. This being a remake and there being a whole BOOK out, there’s not too many new surprises for hardcore it fans. But newcomers might be wondering, (whose bloody hands ) and (why is Richie crying and who is he holding)?! To answer all your burning questions…. I won’t 🤷🏾♀️. If you haven’t seen the first version or read the books or had a sneaky peek at tumblr then it’s best you wait until September 6. But let’s just say have your tissues ready . It’s gonna kill you…. literally. We all know the premise, the losers head back to Derry to finish it off once and for all ! But before pennywise tortures and murders a lot of people( losers included). Part 2 promises to be much darker and WAY scarier and MUCH BLOODIER. Part 1 was from a child’s perspective and what a child would find horrifying. Part 2 is aimed at what grownups find scary and terrifying. So buckle in you’re gonna be in for a wild ride and I can’t wait🤡🎈. And just in time for Halloween 2019. Were all gonna float🎈
