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

[Spits on Mr. Pooh]

Elizabeth: [Whispers] I must be dreaming.

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.

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.

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 Gambler – Movie Review

The_Gambler_posterThe Gambler

I watched this last night with the boyfriend. It was a random movie that he suggested and to be honest I really didn’t want to watch it. After seeing Mark Whalberg in Transformers I just got annoyed by his acting, but surprising he was really good in this movie. Although that dark hair he had made him look like Edward Scissorhands at times.

I loved that Jessica Lange played his mother, because I have an obsession with her. She is just a brilliant actress. Other than that it was an OKAY movie. I’m glad Mark is doing more serious roles.

Also I was kind of annoyed by Brie Larson’s role. I don’t know whether it was her acting or just her facial expressions that pissed me off. She may be a good actress, but I did not enjoy her in this movie at all.

From a Chick’s Perspective 2.5/5. I f someone asked should I see this? I’d say if you have nothing better to do then sure. It had a great ending and that’s rare in movies nowadays.

Jim Bennett: Fuck you.

Best line.

 

tumblr_neuc7jGeqW1tq2mz1o1_500YASSSS JESSICA. Show him who’s boss.

Sons of Anarchy Series Finale *spoilers*

*spoiler alerts*

– Sorry! I don’t spoiler much on my blog, but this time I can’t HELP IT!

I was one of the unfortunate, or fortunate depending how you look at it, fans of Sons of Anarchy. I started watching when Season 4 was just finishing on television and I binge watched like a crazy person. I was absolutely addicted. The characters, the storyline, the tears, the laughter, the SLAUGHTERS… It’s definitely my favourite show on television by far. (Sorry Dexter, you failed me in the last season).

The saddest part in the whole 7 seasons? Opie. I loved Opie. How could you not love Opie. And yes this episode was RUINED for me via facebook from people who were way ahead of me, but it still made me cry like a baby.

Opie I got This SOA

The second hardest cry in SOA? Chibs saying goodbye to Jax. I couldn’t even watch this. I had to pause it and dry my eyes. NEVER WATCH SOA AT WORK ON YOUR LUNCH BREAK. I definitely have to re-watch the last episode. I don’t think I got to cry as hard as I wanted to lo.

Chibs Jax ByeThe moment I cried knowing the significance of this sentence. Brought back my Opie heartbreak. Thanks Jax… way to break my heart AGAIN.

Jax I got This

I don’t want to spoil too much, but I just want to say a couple of more things. This show is amazing. If you haven’t seen it then you’re missing out on one of the best shows on Television. Every character made you love them no matter how much they were playing the “bad guy.” It’s completely upsetting that it’s finally over and there won’t be anymore Chibs, Tig, Happy, Jax, Bobby, Gemma, Unser, Nero, Juice etc… I can’t even put into words how much I loved this show. I HATE THIS

Chibs I hate This

What the hell am I gonna watch on TV NOW?!?!?!

Maps to the Stars – Trailer

So excited to see a new movie with Julianne Moore she is definitely one of my favorite female actresses. I adore Robert Pattinson so I look foward to seeing how the act together. (Yes I’m a twilight fan don’t judge me). Also Mia Wasikowska is in the movie and she is just adorable.


Check out the Trailer:
This is gonna be awesome

Bad Teacher – The TV Show?

bad-teacher-premiere-react-cbs

So I finally had the chance to watch the pilot for Bad Teacher. Now, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the movie but it was pretty funny. It would of been better without Justin Timberlake (just keeping singing and stop acting). Anyways I could be wrong, but I highly doubt this show will last. The acting is not the greatest especially the main character Ari Graynor. I’ve seen her in plenty movies and she can get a way better role than this, BUT Kristin Davis is in it and I looooooove her. Too bad her character is the rival, because she was super hot in Sex and the City. I can totally see her strutting her stuff in the future of this series… if it lasts.

I kinda love the Gym teacher he is great. The kids are annoying and I guess that’s how kids are today… poor things. So I’m guessing this TV show will just be a LONGER version of the movie? *SPOILER from the movie* doesn’t she just end up with the gym teacher out of love instead of looking for a rich hot divorcee? Huh.

Also, after watching the trailer this show actually looks really funny, but the pilot kinda ruined it for me. Who knows maybe I’ll watch it for shits and giggles. Pilots usually suck anyways.

Check out the Trailer:

Dom Hemingway – Movie Review

Dom HemingwayDom Hemingway

Guys if you’re looking for a movie to watch so you can laugh your ASS off then I definitely recommend this one. My boyfriend and I had no idea what this movie was about when we started watching it. Hell, I work in a movie related company and never heard of it. So we put it on and boom I get Jude Law, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and the dude from the Spice Girls Movie (Richard E. Grant). AMAZING!

This had to be one of the funniest movies I’ve seen in a long time. Due to my love for British Humor I was DYING at so many parts I’ll definitely have to watch this movie again just for the amount of shit I missed.

Also I have to say what a great performance by Jude Law. Unbelievable work. Also he kinda looks like Gerard Butler in 300 when he get’s angry…

Perfect poster art as well. *mini spoiler* when I saw the monkey pictures during the movie I actually had to pause it and just laugh. Then I understood the box art after searching for it. Otherwise it’s just confusing as hell.

From a Chick’s Perspective I give this movie a 5/5. I will probably watch it 10 more times just due to introducing it to others or for days when there is nothing else and I need a good giggle. This movie was obviously not promoted well in Canada. I don’t even know what company released it here. I’m off to do some digging.

Dom Hemingway
Please watch this trailer for all the F-BOMBS you will enjoy during this 1.5 hour movie.
Dom Hemingway: “Is that my grandson?”
Hugh: “His name’s Juwara.”
Dom Hemingway: “Are you kidding?”
Hugh: “It means peace-loving.”
Dom Hemingway: “I’m Dom. Dom’s English for unlucky son of a bitch.”
Oh I need to find better quotes, but there are none online. I’ll update this later 😛
