This show has gotten to much hype and attention recently. Before I watched it, I thought the craze was solely based on Cole Sprouse (he plays one of the main characters). But now that I'm a few episodes in, I'm really enjoying it. It's a bit cheesy at times, but honestly what show nowadays isn't. I'm pretty invested in the character's storylines and what happens to them, and overall it's a pretty compelling show. To me, it's like a combination of: Pretty Little Liars, with the whole high school element, and How To Get Away With Murder, with all the flashbacks to the night the kid died (not a spoiler it literally happens one minute into the show). Basically, it's about this kid Jason Blossom who died, and all the characters who went to his high school. You have his twin sister, a new girl from NYC, a goody two-shoes, the quiet, mysterious kid, the boy next door who plays football and writes music, and a band. This show really hooks you, because you want to find out the truth about what happened on July 4th. It's actually based on a comic book series, and overall I would give this show a chance if you're even slightly interested in it.
Hey! Remember a while back ago how I did a book review of Everything Everything? And I loved the book? Well, I just saw the movie, and I have mixed feelings about it. The book was so incredibly captivating. It hooked me in and I never wanted to put it down. The movie did an accurate job of portraying the book plot wise, but something was missing. It may have been the score (soundtrack), it may have been the camera angles, but something was off. Visually, it was a very beautiful movie. All the colors popped off the screen and especially the scenes in Hawaii and New York were amazing. And the set department really did their job, because the more Maddy fell in love with Olly, the more color she wore and the more skin she showed. I got all the symbolism in that. And also with the score none (or not many, I can't remember) of the songs had lyrics until the climax of the movie in Hawaii. I get that too. But I guess my expectations were too high or something, because I left the theater slightly disappointed. I still believe if you read the book this movie is worth seeing, but maybe wait until it comes out on OnDemand or Netflix or something. I still really liked it, and I'm not here to bash it whatsoever. But in my opinion, in this case, the book was better than the movie.
The Real O'Neals is the type of show where you get so invested in the characters' lives that you forget you're not a member of the family. It's uplifting, light-hearted, and well written. The Real O'Neals never fails to make me laugh, and I've rewatched every episode of Season 1 more times than I'd like to admit. It was actually exactly the show I was searching for. Everything I watch is so intense, and I really needed something less dramatic. The show follows the O'Neals, an Irish Catholic family living in Chicago. There is more to each of them than it appears, and as the show goes on you find out more and more about the characters. The show mainly revolves around Kenny, the middle child, and his coming of age/coming out experiences. I love this show, and I think you will too. Hope you enjoyed :)
This movie completely exceeded my expectations times, like, a hundred. It was funnier, more surprising, and heartfelt than I thought it would be. The jokes in this movie would make literally anyone laugh, as I noticed the entire theater was in fits of laughter the whole movie. I think I even cry laughed at one point. The people who created this really did a remarkable job of blending a unique movie idea with super unexpected plot twists. If you were on the fence about this movie because it might be too kiddish or boring, it's definitely worth your time and money. I highly recommend this film, and I hope you enjoyed :)
Hey guys! So the hype for Finding Dory has been building up for nearly 2 years now, and I know basically everyone is dying to see it. All that anticipation made me have really high expectations for the movie, and they were certainly met! It was everything you would expect, however with some funny twists I didn't see coming (i.e. Gerald). It was super cute, and I would definitely recommend you see it if you love Disney and if you love Finding Dory. Make sure to stay to the end though through the credits, because there's a cute little bonus scene that kind of alludes to a third movie. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed, and have a great summer! :)
Alice Through The Looking Glass was a really enjoyable movie. The costumes were amazing, as well as the acting, plot, and everything else. The thing I liked the most about it was that it tied up a bunch of loose ends that I was confused or curious about in the first movie. It definitely felt like a sequel, but not in a way that made me dislike it. It was the best kind of sequel where it keeps the same style, uncovers information, continues the plot, and meet new characters. I recommend seeing it if you really enjoyed the first one!
Hey guys! So a couple weeks back I mentioned I intended to post a movie review of The Fifth Wave, so here it is! It's funny, because for about 3 weeks straight every time I made plans to go see this, it snowed. Seriously, every time. But I did eventually go and it was worth the wait. Being a huge fan of the book, I was expecting a lot from this movie. In my head I pictured the characters to be a certain way, and for the most part they were pretty spot on. They mainly focused on Cassie's journey, and only touched on Ben and his group, especially Ringer, but it was hinted at that they'll touch on it more in the (hopefully) next movie. Overall, I was really happy I saw it, and I hope you enjoyed :) bye!
This show is something I've heard talk about for a while now, but never gave a second thought to. But boy was I missing out. This show really hooks you in and makes you attached to the characters. It has a pretty witty type funny script, and all the singers and performers on it are amazing. Basically, the show is about a high school Glee Club (group organized to sing songs and compete against other glee clubs) and all the members in it. There's Rachel, who loves the spotlight and has the best female voice and is the most enthusiastic about singing; Finn, the jock who turns out to be an amazing singer; Will Scheuster the director who loves his job; Sue Silvestor, the mean spirited cheerleading coach who's always out to take Glee Club down; Emma Pillsbury the sweet guidance counselor with a germ problem; Kurt, my personal favorite, the fashionable gay guy in the club who is so funny and always has perfect timing with sarcastic comments; and countless others who make the show amazing, funny, entertaining, and captivating. I hope you go give it a chance!
Hey guys! So I have a new show obsession, and it's the Vampire Diaries. If you're interested in shows I like like Once Upon A Time, Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars etc. I think you would really enjoy it! It's about a girl named Elena who's parents recently passed away and she's just trying to be normal again when the new guy named Stephen intrigues her. It turns out Stephen is a vampire, which makes things a lot more complicated. The show is about how they manage to be together and all the supernatural stuff they face. Hope you guys watch it and love it!
Hey guys! I recently saw this movie and thought I should post a review before it goes out of theaters, so here's a little bonus post for the week, and to make up for last week :) I recently saw this movie with my friend, and I think it was the most exciting movie of the series. There were a couple of jump scares, but I think that made it all the more exciting. I also cried, and this movie played with a lot of emotions. I don't want to give anything away, but the ending for me was bittersweet. It's the end of the most recent craze, and I'm say that. But even if you haven't read the books, I highly recommend you go see this. It's a great finale. Also, for all you book readers out there, it stayed pretty well with the plot of the book. Obviously little details are going to be left out, but overall they did a really good job on it. Definitely go see it! :) hope you enjoyed
