I hate writing negative reviews for movies. I know I’ve done them before on this site, but there’s a difference between a bad movie that I go in expecting to be bad and go, “Yup, this meets my expectations!” and a movie I’m excited about that just....fall flat. I’ll try to leave this review as spoiler free as possible, considering it came out...today? I think? I know some people got to see it last week, and it officially has a release date of Friday and I’m writing this at 11:59 on a Thursday. Also, nobody edited this for me, I’m sure there’s a bunch of mistakes in my rage. Therefore: No beta, we die like men.
How to Train your Dragon: the Hidden World broke my heart and left me disappointed and that’s definitely a sentence I hate writing.
Do you guys know how good Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is? In the history of ever, Evan and I have never had the same opinion on any movie. The elements we look for and consider “good” in movies are on completely different ends of the spectrum.
And yet, we BOTH thought this movie was amazing.
Blockers was actually a decent movie
Okay, I know what you’re thinking: a generic, raunchy comedy with John Cena with one of the main characters cannot possibly be that good. But that’s why I’m here to review movies, and I’m telling you that this movie is at its worst entertaining.
I saw Flower the other day. It went okay.
I was so ready to like this movie, which is why it makes me upset that I’m writing a review about it that isn’t so flattering. I don’t really have a good summary of this, so here’s one I stole off Google:
Rebellious, quick-witted Erica Vandross (Zoey Deutch) is a 17-year-old firecracker living with her single mom, Laurie, and her mom's new boyfriend, Bob, in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley. When Bob's mentally unbalanced son, Luke, arrives from rehab to live with the family, Erica finds her domestic and personal life overwhelmed. With Luke and her sidekicks Kala and Claudine in tow, Erica acts out by exposing a high school teacher's dark secret.
Ladies and Gents, this is the moment you’ve waited for…
You guys know the phrase “Life imitates Art”? Because that’s almost exactly explains the The Greatest Showman. The movie talks a lot about critics not being able to see the value of something that’s whimsical and fun, and that’s exactly what critics of The Greatest Showman did. Critics have overall been very mixed about the film, with a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes for historical inaccuracy, which I’ll touch upon later. The general audience, on the other hand, overall has a very positive view of the film with a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. That being said, let me tell you why The Greatest Showman is the best movie ever:
One of my best friends and I got a Moviepass recently, and because my friend is crazy, she’s decided she’s going to watch a movie every single day. Somehow, I let her talk me and my boyfriend into going into 50 Shades Darker.
