Ever since the first inkling that a live-action Beauty and The Beast was in the works, I was thrilled. Sometimes I
Spoiler Free Get Out movie review The movie immediately begins with action. I was cringing within the first 5 minutes and laughing in the next 10 minutes. Get Out is directed by a comedian, so you can expect some comedic relief. I'm easy to win over with comedy, but I'm really picky with the type of comedy I like – especially in a thriller flick. The comedy was blended into the story very well. It didn't feel as if the comedy was an after thought or forced, it was all natural and didn't take away from the tone in the slightest. I'm not a fan of Jordan Peele as a comedian, but the work he did for this film is genius and was respected & acknowledged by the audience. The laugh factor was on-point, as was the story.
Spoiler-free A Monster Calls review Full disclosure: I have not read the book and knew nothing about the story before
A SPOILER-FREE Rogue One Review I attended the official Rogue One: A Star Wars Story press junket. I interview the
When word of the Loving movie first came out, I had no idea what it was about. Like most Americans, I had never heard of the Lovings. I didn't know that this incredibly couple help shaped the country that I love. I didn't realize that it was because of them, that I am allowed to marry the man that I love. Their story is like no other because the Lovings weren't an interracial couple fighting for the freedoms of America. They were simply a couple, a family, that fought for their right to live and love together – in the land of the free.
I typically walk into a new movie without many expectations. I like to give every movie a fair shot. I don't want to be disappointed. However, I had very big expectations for Queen of Katwe. It's a true story and when a true story is brought to the big screen – it has to be good. On top of that, I knew that the incredible cast would appropriately convey this beautiful story of strength and survival.
I've had my fair share of weird and annoying neighbors. I've had ones that stare every time I walk outside.
I attended an advance screening of Bridget Jones's Baby and I took my boyfriend! I know, it sounds silly because Bridget Jones's Baby is totally a chick flick – or is it? Eh, not so much. It has the every fragment it needs to be a really great date night movie. Still think your guy wouldn't like it? Well mine said these exact words: "Every chick flick should be as funny as this one." Those are the words of a brand new Bridget Jones fan! Take your guy on a date to see this movie. I promise he wont be disappointed.
I was invited to attend the first-ever movie under the stars at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. I was honored to attend such a fun event and to finally see the Pete's Dragon that we've all been waiting for. As you read in my last Pete's Dragon post, there are so many reasons to be excited for this movie! I was the most excited to see the relationships between Pete and Elliot, I mean, we all want a pet dragon, right? I mean, there are a lot of benefits to having a pet dragon.
I just finished watching one of the most inspiring, honest documentaries I've ever seen. Life, Animated is about a boy with autism that couldn't speak, but found a way to communicate through animated Disney films.
I had the pleasure of watching a couple of episodes of the new Netflix series, Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh. After watching DreamWorks movie Home a few too many times, I was ecstatic to be invited on a press trip to get a sneak peek of the show and to chat with the stars! If you liked the movie, you will love the show! It's the craziest, silliest, funniest show that you'll ever see.
I sat at my work desk one afternoon, set up my tablet, and decided t watch Netflix. I thought that I could just watch Fuller House while I worked. That's usually what I do with sitcoms. Little did I know that it would be so good and so distracting that I would sit at my work desk for 2 hours, binge watching it. It was the fun, sarcastic humor that initially grabbed my attention. But it was the adult topics that I, as a woman, can relate to that kept my attention.
Music. It's what makes me thrive. Music feeds my mind, body, and soul in a way that nothing else can. The only thing that comes close is television and movies, hence why I'm an entertainment blogger and why I have a Bachelor's degree in music production – it's kinda my thing. Literally, as I speak, I have the TV paused while I listen to a new track. It's my life. That's why I lost my mind when I found about HBO's new series that was all about sex, drugs, and rock & roll!
The time as finally come, folks! Finding Dory is in theaters everywhere as of today. I've been waiting for this day since Finding Dory was just a rumor. I had the incredible opportunity to attend an advanced screening on Tuesday and boy, was it a good time! Our theater was filled with boys, girls, men, and women of all ages. I wasn't surprised to see such a diverse audience, though. Finding Nemo stole the hearts of everyone, so I knew that Finding Dory would too.
When I heard Voltron described as a mix of Power Rangers and Transformers, I was intrigued. That sounds pretty epic, actually. I must say, the comparison to those two iconic shows is perfect, but Voltron: Legendary Defender is so much more than that. It's exciting, relatable, and quite funny – but most of all – it's binge-worthy and here's why!
I absolutely love how crazy Alice movies are. They give life to anything and everything. It makes me giggle to think of the personalities they've given to "seconds" and "minutes". It's fun, silly, bold, and colorful. Alice will always be a classic and Through The Looking Glass will go down in history as one of the greatest of all time.
When I think of the original The Jungle Book, I think of a family-friendly, fun movie. It's a movie that makes me laugh and sing. I've always loved Disney's animated classics because I walk away from the movie feeling like a kid again. They make me forget about my worries and my strife (see what I did there). I didn't know exactly what to expect with the new The Jungle Book film. I mean, a live-action version of a jungle of animals? How much of a connection could we possibly have to talking animals? Will it be too unrealistic? Or even worse, will it be too creepy? These thoughts wandered through my mind before seeing the movie, but overall I was super excited. With a stellar cast and one of my favorite Directors (Jon Favreau), I couldn't help but to look forward to seeing my favorite childhood Classic on the big screen!
