American Horror Story: Hotel – The TV Show

american-horror-story-promo-poster.jpg.bc89491a03bd25700c1767f90475cdc7So far I’m pretty indecisive about the new American Horror Story season. I have to say that this show is one of my all time favorites so I always look forward to a new season. I admit that it’s creepy, gross and revolting BUT I feel like it’s missing something. I know there have only been two episodes so I’m hoping it get’s better, because so far this is my least favorite of all the seasons.

I’m pretty impressed by Lady Gaga. So far her acting isn’t that bad. I thought of the worst. The only thing that’s weird about her being in this show is all the sex and blood scenes… I wonder how her fiance feels about it. YIKES!

Anyways I’m obviously going to continue to watch the show, but so far I’m just not feeling it. Needs more Jessica Lange TBH.

From a Chick’s Perspective ?/5. – Like i said I’m super indecisive. I want to give it a 3, but at this point in the series i’d give it a 2. But watch next week I’ll want to give it a 5. So for now I leave you with a questionable rating 🙂

Drop Dead Fred – Throwback Movie Review

s5G9umw7Bl9GkwmRlU78j3Uj3pR Guys if you don’t remember Drop Dead Fred then we can’t be friends. So my grandmother was going through storage and found a ton of my VHS’ so obviously I took them home pulled out my VHS Player (Yes I sitll have it, but it literally died the same night) and started to watch this movie again. I’ve probably seen it a billion times. I can quote the movie word for word… It’s absolutely one of my favorite movies of all time.

What’s it about? It came out in 1991 (I was 6) It’s about a girl who has an imaginary friend growing up because her mother basically hated her. Her mother locked away drop dead fred so she could never let him out. He finally came back once she went back to her mothers house and set him free. He returns to try to make her life “happy” again, but obviously does a lot of harm on the way. It’s definitely one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen as a child. Watching it now as I’m 30 it brought back so many memories. As soon as I started quoting lines from the movie to my sister she would reply with the next line. That’s how you know this movie impacted you. I definitely shouldn’t have been waching this movie at 6, but I’m glad I did!

From a Chick’s Perspective 5/5. This is my first throwback movie review so I hope you liked it! This movie is obviously one of my faves so I have ot give it a 5/5. Please go watch it. Even as an adult it’s pretty fucked up and hilarious

Fred: Where is the dolls?

[Throws dolls at Elizabeth]

Fred: I wanna play with the-Ah hah! The dolls! Hello, Jemima. Hello, Angelec.

[Makes the dolls say ‘Hello.’]

Fred: You’re gonna die!

[Screams and hits Jemima’s head against the door. Bites off Angelec’s head. Throws dolls]

Fred: Mr. Pooh!

[Makes Mr. Pooh say ‘Hello.’]

Fred: You die too!

[Makes Mr. Pooh say ‘No no no.’]

Fred: Yes yes yes.

[Screams and rips Mr. Pooh’s stuffing out while throwing the stuffing at Elizabeth]

Fred: [Makes Mr. Pooh scream ‘No! My intestines. Not my intestines!’]

[Spits on Mr. Pooh]

Elizabeth: [Whispers] I must be dreaming.

bahahaha

Sicario – Movie Review

Sicario_posterI was very lucky to catch the movie Sicario last night thanks to my work. ❤

Let me just start off by saying if you haven’t read my blog yet I HATE going to movie theaters. I would rather stay home and watch it on my couch so I can pause it, rewind it (if necessary) turn it up and down… etc. People in movies theaters are so annoying. They have to point out who’s going to die or what they think it going to happen. NO ONE CARES. I am trying to hear what the hell is going on and also use my brain to figure out what I think it going to happen. No one needs your damn commentary.

Anyways about the movie. I have to say I absolutely adore Benicio Del Toro. He is like the Spanish version of Brad Pitt. Not in acting by any means, but in looks! These two look like long lost brothers or they have different mothers lol

mCVQxrB

I found this image online and almost died of laughter. Glad it’s not just me who thinks they are related. Although I don’t really enjoy them calling him a Mexican version of Brad Pitt, but we won’t even go there.

So the movie overall was great, super action packed, sad at times and very confusing. Emily Blunt’s character really confused me. I’m going into this movie thinking that she is a strong female lead, when it reality I felt like she was just supporting Benecio Del Toro’s character the whole time. I don’t want to spoil this as I’m not sure when this comes out to the public, but definitely go see it. It’s a great movie, with some gruesome moments, but totally worth it. Or wait till it hits DVD if you’re like me and don’t want to watch it in theaters lol

From a Chick’s Perspective 3.5/5.  It was a great movie, I’ll most likely forget about it in the coming years. I’m sure someone will bring it up and I’ll be like Oh yea that movie. It was okay… I recommend seeing it. It was filmed beautifully. As you can tell i’m still unsure how I feel about it.

Scream Queens – The TV Show

Scream-Queens-01So last night I turned on my PVR and noticed I missed the new show Scream Queens on City TV last night. So I got comfortable and knew that 2 hours of a TV show is not my cup of tea, but I figured they aired it that way on TV I’ll watch it. I absolutely loved the first episode especially the 1995 throwback. I am also a fan of the cast: Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer and Jamie Lee Curtis. The other actors are fairly new to me, but I’m sure they’ll grow on me.

I have to say I’m a little disappointed in the show, knowing it’s produced by the same guy (Ryan Murphy) that did American Horror Story I guess I had high hopes for this show. This series is basically like a horror version of Gossip Girls. Now I do love me some Gossip Girl, but I’m not sure if this will be as everlasting. Let’s hope Episode 3 doesn’t disappoint. Although I’m glad I got to fast forward through commercials otherwise I might of stopped watching episode 2 half way.

From a Chick’s Perspective 3/5. – The first episode was amazing, the second was meh. I’m sure the series will stick around cause teens will love this.

Room – Trailer/Review

Room_PosterWhen I first read Emma Donoghue’s Book “Room” I fully cried and bawled my eyes out, because this story is just beyond sad. When I heard that there was a movie coming out I was destined to see it. TIFF annoaunced that they would be having it in their theatre’s and I nearly lost my mind. I have to admit I’m a lucky girl when it comes to watching movies and television shows early, but this one was a hard one to get into to.

I basically begged a co-worker to take me with her and thank GOD her friend couldn’t make it.

As soon as I got into the theatre I had tissues ready as I already knew the story.

Can I just say this movie was absolutely beautiful. The filming, the acting, the absolute horrific situation they’re turned into a beautiful story, UGH definitely the best movie I’ve seen at TIFF… although I have only seen 3 haha. Those reviews will come out soon.

Brie Larson, if you don’t win an Oscar for this roll then the Oscars are fixed!!! You were absolutely breathtaking. No one else could of played “Ma” better. I can’t believe this woman went from playing Envy Adam in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to this absolutely terrified and strong mother. Now that’s an actor.

Jacob Tremblay… what an amazing child actor. When I was thinking of who could possibly play this role I didn’t think it was possible. Fiona Weir (the casting director) is a genius. Then again it could of been the parents who got him to audition. But damn Fiona better win an Emmy for Outstanding Casting… cause this child was perfection.

Check out the Trailer at this link
ROOM – Trailer

From a Chick’s Perspective 5/5. – The best movie I’ve ever seen at TIFF. I’ve been obsessed with this book for so long that I am so thankful that the movie came out as wonderful as it did. What an amazing cast, amazing acting… It’s a beautiful and horrific story. I can’t WAIT for all of you to see it!!!

Blindspot – Pilot Review

02100-blindspot-posterFinally a new TV show where the actors are awesome, the concept is pretty cool (kind of reminded me of Prison Break with all those tattoo’s that basically turned into a map… sorry for the spoilers), AND well I totally have a girl crush on Jaimie Alexander. My girl crush started when I saw her in Nurse Jackie ❤

So I love the concept of this show. A girl is found in a bag in Times Square and she is completely covered in fresh tattoos. Her memory is completely wiped and her tattoo’s are leading the FBI to future attacks, deaths… etc. The first episode was pretty good, but I am hoping that it doesn’t become repetitive. I feel like this show has a lot of potential to last, but only time will tell. The only thing I worry about is the actor Sullivan who plays Kurt. There is something off about his acting… I have a feeling he has a strong accent and is trying to pull off a regular New York accent… (I need to go google this)

YES… He is AUSTRALIAN! I knew it! and boom goes the dynamite.

From a Chick’s Perspective 4/5. – Pilot reviews are usually easy for me. I can tell whether a show is going to be amazing or it’ll be off the air come Season 2… or 3. This one will definitely be a great Season and I really hope the show keeps getting better. I can see it declining, but let’s hope this show makes it to at least Season 3.

Limitless – The TV Show

limitless-publicity-releasejpg-82f1eeWhen I heard Limitless (the movie) was being turned into a TV Show I was pretty excited. Although most of the time when movies turn into TV Shows they tend to fail horribly, but I was so surprised by this pilot episode. Not only are the actors awesome but the story itself is pretty sweet. I am so happy to see Jennifer Carpenter in another show, as I haven’t seen her since Dexter. She is such an incredible actor! Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Bradley Cooper is actually in the TV Show. HOW GENIUS IS THAT?

Out of all the shows this fall I think this show will be my favourite. So far Fall TV is going to be AWESOME ❤

From a Chick’s Perspective 5/5. – For a Pilot I really loved it. I can’t wait to see episode 2 and watch the rest of the Season! Let’s hope this show lasts a long time!

OITNB Season 2

I finally watched it! I am so late on this, but damn there are way too many shows to catch up on. I heard a lot of mixed reviews as some were saying it was too slow of a season and it wasn’t as good as the first, but I loved it. I absolutely love the background stories, I loved hearing all their stories and HELLO RUBY ROSE!! She is just gorg!

Anyway I totally recommend watching this series as it’s hilarious, but it’s also really meaningful and honest at times where I catch myself wiping tears away. It also makes me want to go to jail to hang out with these girls haha. God knows this is not what prison is really like.

From a Chick’s Perspective 4/5 – Loved this season, love last season and can’t wait for the next season.
