Girls Trip

The movie is about four women that have been best friends since college who are known as the Flossy Posse, who over the years become distance and have not seen each other in a few years. Ryan Pierce (Regina Hall) is a keynote speaker for Essence music festival, she decides to invite her friends to come with her and turn it into a girl’s trip. They were hoping that it would be a weekend they would never forget. However before the girls could embark on a fun weekend they find out that Ryan’s husband (Mike Colter) is having an affair.

After finally watching Girls Trip I have no idea why it has taken me this long to finally watch the movie. I thought the movie was funny. Although, when I first saw the trailer for Girls Trip, I couldn’t help but notice how similar it was too Rough Night. Girls Trip in my opinion was by far way better in so many ways, it was funnier and the plotline made more sense.

The cast was amazing; I have nothing bad to say. Regina Hall’s character did have some comedic moment especially during the sausage scene I could not help but laugh. Her character was also relatable. In the movie she knew that her husband was having an affair but chooses to ignore the fact. This is because although they were married they were also business partners; she thought she would not be able to continue her business without him. It seems that it is sometimes easier to advice people to leave a partner when they cheat, but when it comes to ‘practice what you preach’ it can prove to be difficult. While all of them did make me laugh there was one character that blew me away with her performance and that was Dina.

Now Dina (Tiffany Haddish) is a character she’s a friend we’d all love to have. She was by far my favourite character, she’s funny, crazy, loyal (a die-hard friend) and inappropriate. She’s described as the “wild one” and we can definitely see why. She encouraged her friends to let loose and just enjoy themselves. Whenever I saw her on the screen I just knew that at some point she’d make me laugh. My favourite scene had to be when she was buying absinthe from Mike Epps character, I could not stop laughing. I finally realised how crazy she really is.

The only thing I wasn’t too much of a fan off was the ending. There were two scenes I wasn’t too fond off. The first being, when the girls during the movie had a big rift, they ended up saying some harsh words to each other yet ended up being friends again. I just thought that they forgave each other a bit too soon and wanted to see some development there. The second being, when Ryan and Julian got together while I was happy to see them ending up together. I couldn’t help but think how cliché it was. Isn’t this how all movies end?

To conclude I thought the movie overall was funny, I loved how the girls had fun. It made me want to plan my own girls trip I would definitely watch it again.

Bad moms Review

I thought the movie was funny witty and brutally honest yet relatable at the same to some extent. We have all felt helpless at times whether it is at being a parent, in your personal life or in your profession. We see Amy (Kunis) struggling to balance working and being a parent at the same time and being in a marriage that is failing due to infidelity. Amy finds out that her husband has been semi cheating on her for 10 months with a woman he found online. She ends up befriending two other moms Carla (Hahn) and Kiki (Bell). 

I found that Bad moms slightly reminded me of  means girls but the parents version. Gwendolyn (Applegate), Stacy (Pinkett-Smith) and Vicky (Mumolo) were pretty much the mean “moms”. Amy felt unappreciated at work and felt that her school’s PTA had too much commitment and decided to run for the PTA president. However Gwendolyn wasn’t so pleased and responded by planting drugs in Amy’s daughters locker.

Overall I thought the movie was really fun and would rate the movie a 6.5/10.

Suicide Squad Review

After hearing about the negative reviews Suicide Squad had I was a bit worried as I thought I wouldn’t like it. In my opinion, I thought ‘Suicide Squad’ was a good movie. I’m slightly confused as to why there are so many negative reviews. The movie had loads of action and comedy elements with a few sad scenes. I think the reason the movie may have had negative review could have been because the actors involved are well-known, so people had high expectations. I’ve watched the movie twice and I still thought it was great.

I thought the plot line was great, I loved Harley’s and the Joker’s relationship. I loved how he would do just about anything to get Harley back. Will Smith was right Margot Robbie and Jared Leto did have great chemistry. Jared Leto did a great job as the Joker, I know a few thought that it was a big job to fill in especially after Heath Ledger’s performance. But I thought both versions of the Joker were great as we got to see different perspectives of the Joker. Margot Robbie performance in the movie was great I liked seeing the different sides to her character. We saw that she was not fearless and psychotic in the beginning, but changed later on.

I thought the cast choice was great. I loved Viola Davis as Amanda Waller you couldn’t tell in the beginning if she was evil or not. Although she did give some subtle hints that we really shouldn’t trust her, an example is when Harley asked her “Are you the devil?” She replied with “Maybe.”. At the time I thought it was a joke, but towards the end, I figured she was half-joking and half being serious. Will Smith scene with his daughter at the end was heart-warming, it was good to see as we were so used to him being a heartless killer.

Cara Delevingne role as Dr June Moone and Enchantress although it was not entirely all bad it could have also been a lot better. At times her acting felt a bit unbelievable, especially in the scenes after Enchantress had possessed her body and she was herself again. I did not fully believe that she was genuinely upset. I don’t believe that she can act as well as she thinks. Not all models can transition from a model to an Actress straight away it takes trial and error.

The only major issues I had with the movie was that there were some scenes that was confusing. But overall I thought the movie was good.

I would rate it a 7/10.

The Mysteries of Laura Season 2 Episode 10 Review

The Mysteries of Laura is one of my favourite detective shows. The show is about a NYPD homicide detective who has to work with her ex-husband who in the first season was her captain. However in the second season he’s now working as a detective who happens to be Laura partner. While the show is great I can’t help but miss ‘Will and Grace’ (inserts sad face).

While Laura is trying to find out who killed a perfume mogul in this week’s episode, she is still having a hard time in deciding if she either wants to be with Tony or Jake her ex-husband. While Tony is a great guy she still has unresolved feelings for Jake. Jake still has feelings for Laura, and has changed in hopes to get Laura back. When Billy accidentally slips and informs him that Laura has told their children that she is in a relationship with Tony he is hurt and now wants to concentrate on he’s career.

The murder suspect so far points to John Dunham who is the son of the perfume mogul; however Laura does not believe he is the murderer even though some of the evidence does point to him. The episode ends with John breaking into Laura’s house and is holding her at gunpoint. We are left wondering what will happen to her next week.

Devious maids season 3 episode 2 review

Really happy to see that devious maids is back, just hope that the show continues to be successful and does not get cancelled. Last weeks episode was really shocking and weird especially with the additions of the new characters, us fans really do not know what to expect. Those that are glee fans would probably love this season as we see the arrival of Naya Rivera.

So I will give you guys a quick summary of last weeks episode, we found out that Zoila (Judy Reyes) is pregnant but there is a twist. Turns out that the baby daddy is not Javier who is her boyfriend, but her ex-husband Pablo. After she found out the truth Zoila decides to tell Javier she is pregnant but has left him to believe that he is the father of her baby. Something else that happened in the episode that left me shocked, was that Rosie’s husband has become a porn star. Spence reasoning for the change of profession was that he couldn’t find any acting jobs and he isn’t having actual sex with he’s co star. Still shocking such a drastic move from an ex soap opera.

This season does seem more creepy this is because of the Stappord’s adopted daughter. She’s an odd one so far she hasn’t talked to anyone apart from her new maid, and the episode ended with a lot of blood and we see her smiling (creepy much).

This weeks episode seems slightly drama free. Valentina announces that her and Remi are engaged, however Zoila does not seem so happy about the news. She thinks that she’s too young as she’s only 20, and Zoila thinks that her and Remi are rushing into marriage to quickly. Javier proposes to Zoila which leads Zoila to have a change of heart as she wants Valentina to support her marrying Javier and being pregnant. Valentina’s upset about the news thinking that it is too soon, as Pablo (her dad) hasn’t been dead for that long.

We still however do not know what happened at the Stappord’s house as Taylor did not tell Blanca the truth as to why her living room was bloody. Blanca decides that she no longer wants to be their maid as she finds out that Taylor lied about there being an intruder. Marisol however convinces her that if her employer is asking too much of her then she is allowed to ask for something in return. Which in her case was a scholarship.

The season so far looks promising however it seems much darker compared to the last two season.

The Interview

To start of with I actually enjoyed the interview. I thought it was a decent film, after all the news coverage the film received, it made me want to watch the film. Plus it was starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. Having seen most of their movies I knew it would be pretty funny.

I love how the film opened up with Eminem, had no idea he was going to be in it and found him hilarious. Anyways I would probably rate the movie 7.5 out of 10. Reasons was although the movie was pretty funny I did find that the movie was a bit long. Although I did laugh at most part of the movie, there were scenes I would just sit and think how long has the movie been and is it going to end anytime soon?

I will suggests that you go ahead and watch the film and give me your feedback.
