Sense8

So I just finished the first season of Sense8 and WOW! What a show!

It was honestly a thrilling show and you never knew what was going to happen. It was beautiful,sad, comedic, suspenseful… basically all of those qualities you look for in a series, especially a new one. I can’t wait for Season 2. This is one of those shows that you really need to pay close attention to. I remember getting so confused because I missed an important part and had to rewind it because someone was in my living room talking or the phone rang etc. Definitely not worth it to let the show continue going if it doesn’t have your full attention, but trust me it’s worth it.

The cast is completely amazing. I loved every single character and that’s tough to find in a series.

From a Chick’s Perspective 5/5. – One of the most confusing and amazing series I’ve seen. Definitely recommend it and I will definitely be waiting and watching for Season 2.

Into the Woods – Movie Review

images Into the Woods

So I was looking forward to this movie for a while now and finally got a chance to sit down and watch it. Half the time I just really wanted them to stop singing… it got to the point where I wanted to fast forward through parts of it.

Johnny Depp (one of my favourite Actors) kind of creeped me out during his part as the Wolf. I understand he wants to eat the girl, but just the way he was saying it and looking at her really gave me the creeps. Not your best role Johnny.

Meryl Streep is just amazing. I have nothing bad to say about her ever. She actually slayed in this role. So kudos to you Merly.

Anna Kendrick… Meh. I’m glad the birds blinded the step sisters and you left the Prince. Other that that… Meh. Also Chris Pine looked scary as hell. How were the two princes chosen for this movie?? They could of done better.

Emily Blunt and James Corden were definitely my favourite to watch. They were so cute on screen and actually quite realistic with all the nonsense going around.

Overall it was okay… Kind of sketchy at times and quite annoying.

From a Chick’s Perspective 2.5/5. I If you love musicals then I suggest you give it a watch. If you hate musicals this one will make your ears bleed.

Cinderella: [to her prince]: My father’s house was a nightmare; your house was a dream. Now I want something in between.

Girl… get your shit together.

Montage of Heck – Trailer

Montage-Of-Heck I just came across this new Kurt Cobain doucmentary called the Montage of Heck. It literally gave me goosebumps watching it. I obviously never knew him, saw Nirvana live, but I’ve always been a huge fan and have always wondered how he died. Was it suicide? Was it murder? Was it an accidental overdose? It breaks my heart, because his music was amazing.

 

I remember turing on Edge 102 in Toronto and hearing that he died and my heart just stopped. It was like someone telling a child that Santa Clause isn’t real anymore. It’s heartbreaking, but in time you get over it. I don’t think I’ll ever get over his death.

50 Shades of Grey – Movie Review

grey26f-1-web50 Shades of Grey

Super disappointed in this movie.I felt like they were just ripping pages out of the book and if you didn’t read the book then the movie wasn’t making sense. Ugh that run-on sentence was so necessary. Anyways, I’ll get into the nitty gritty in a moment, but the one thing that bothered me the most? The lack of chemistry these two had. I felt like it was so awkward at times. Also I’m still pissed that Charlie Hunnam wasn’t cast as Christian, but then I watched the movie and THANK GOD. It would of been a horrible career move for him. Also there are rumors that Jamie Dornan doesn’t want to continue with the other 2 movies. Listen buddy, you can’t just BE Christian Grey for the opening movie. This will be your alter ego for live. This ain’t no Super hero shit where they replace Spiderman every 2nd movie.

So if you haven’t read the book OH PLEASE just read it! It’s way better than this pile of poop. There was way too much information missing from this movie. I was actually confused during it. I was thinking to ask my boyfriend do you understand what’s going on? But half the time he just kept asking me questions about it. So in the end I kinda had to make sense out of it. (We watched it in the comfort of our home. don’t worry we aren’t THOSE types of movie goers.”

So here are some things that just pissed me off, or didn’t make any sense.

  • Why the hell were they taking the Helicopter in the first place. They made it seem like she just showed up and was surprised.
    • In the book he let’s her know well in advance
  • Why did they ditch the whole car ride scene?
    • Come on, she put on his iPod and he had TOXIC by Britney Spears. That’s something that should never be kept out of a script
  • The movie literally removed her inner goddess in her head and it was the best parts of the book. Example “My Inner goddess is doing the meringue with some salsa movies,” or “My Inner goddess is doing back flips in a routine worthy of a Russian Olympic Gymnast.” I can understand these are kind of difficult to portray in a movie, but what a shame it was completely removed. I would of been happy with voice over thoughts.
  • The whole gliding scene. SO RANDOM. In the book he wakes her up early in the morning from her slumber and she is completely exhausted and he’s excited like a kid in a candy store about taking her Gliding. I don’t recall seeing Christina’s playful side in the movie at all.

There’s a ton more, but I can’t be bothered.

I did enjoy how they threw in the emails although they missed A LOT of emails. Like a LOT. Ugh.

From a Chick’s Perspective 3/5. Just read the book. Then watch the movie and tell me if it makes sense. I think I need to re-watch it. I watched it at like 1am and I was exhausted.  I’ll let you know if it any of it changes my mind once I do the re-watch.

Christian Grey: What about you? I’d like to know more about you.

Anastasia Steele: There’s really not much to know about me. Look at me.

Christian Grey: I am.

This part made me so happy. Until I realized that he just thought she would be a good submissive and not just a pretty girl. PSSH.

The Theory of Everything – Movie Review

Theory-of-Everything-PosterThe Theory of Everything

This movie was absolutely beautiful. Now I know why Eddie Redmayne wont he Oscar for Best Actor. What an amazing performance! To be honest the only other movie I can recall watching him in was My Week with Marilyn Monroe; which I adored him in. What a brilliant Actor. I honestly can’t wait to watch more of his upcoming films. He is simply brilliant.

About the story, I still wonder if that one little fall really started his Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. As soon as I saw that happen in the film I legitimately had to pause the movie. I was completely shocked. I even asked a co-worker about it. He agrees he is unsure if that’s what caused it or they just needed something dramatic to happen in the movie to show change.

Honestly I feel like the only way an actor can really prove himself as a real actor and a great actor is to portray someone who we can compare them to. Look at Leonardo Dicaprio in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. A prime example that if you can watch a movie and think that it’s real then you’re a true actor.

Also Felicity Jones who played Jane Hawking should of won for best supporting actress (Sorry Patricia Arquette), but her acting was on FLEEK. Absolutely gorgeous movie overall. What a beautiful life and a beautiful man. I am happy he has lived all these years and more to come.

tumblr_n9w8yw4dW01rzoznmo3_250

From a Chick’s Perspective 5/5. I would recommend it and watch it again. It’s completely unreal and I love a great documentary.

Jane Hawking: What you’re writing?
Stephen Hawking: Look what we made.

[they look at their kids]

I bawled like a little baby. Sorry for the minor spoiler alert, but it’ll still make you cry.

Oscars 2015 Review… A Little Late

Hey everyone,

I wanted to do a small Oscars review since I do watch a lot of movies. Unfortunately there were a lot of movies in this years nominees that I just didn’t get a chance to watch, so I didn’t evenbother making predictions this year.

Although the award show itself was boring as hell here are my best and worst moments:

Best Moments:
1. John Legend and Common’s performance of Glory along with their acceptance speech for Best Song. – Honestly it just touched my heart.giphy (1)
2. Patricia Arquette winning for best supporting Actress. – I really didn’t care that she won, but her speech about women equality and wage quality won me over. I’ll definitely have to watch Boyhood.oscars-gifs-meryl-streep-jlo
3. Julianne Moore winning Best Actress. – I knew she would win and I was only basing this off of her performance in Still Alice. It was a beautiful movie and her acting was amazing.
4. Lady Gaga’s stunning tribute performance to The Sound of Music. – It was epic. I’m glad she finally showed the world what she is actually capable of.

Worst Moments:
1. Neil Patrick Harris hosting. – I was never a big fan of him, but this was just overall embarrassing.  Especially when you think your prediction box is so precious and you don’t even let us know your predictions… Unless I missed that then I must’ve fell asleep.

giphy
2. John Travolta being creepy – Creepy with Idina and creepy overall. He scares me.
3. Leaving out Joan Rivers in the Memoriam. – That’s just fucking rude.

Overall probably one of the most boring Oscars events ever. Until next year.

Dumb and Dumber To – Movie Review

142vio1111111Dumb and Dumber To

Alright I’ve been looking forward to this sequel since they announced it. I almost lost my shit (See this post for reference). So since September I’ve waited to see this movie and FINALLY I watched it.

So obviously I wasn’t expecting it to be better than the original and I’m not even going to MENTION that shit storm movie they made called Dumb and Dumberer. WTF. But guys this movie was FUNNY! I was laughing so hard at parts. The story-line was absolutely ridiculous,but it was actually better than I expected. Jim And Jeff did not disappoint. You have to go in with very low expectations; which I’m sure everone will, but i’m telling you it’s funny and you’ll get a kick out of it.

From a Chick’s Perspective 3/5. GO watch it. It was worth it. Plus it’s Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Two great and amazing actors. It’s obviously not the greatest movie, but it made me giggle.

 

Harry Dunne: This is my associate, Dr. Christmas.

Dr. Lewis Meldman: Christmas, as in the holiday?

Lloyd Christmas: No, as in the tree.

This made me laugh so hard.
