Entertainment Monthly: October

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

It has been a hot minute since I have written an entertainment post. I have been mostly watching episodes of tv shows and I only review those at the end of every season. I haven’t been watching a ton of movies, but I have rented from Redbox and watched a couple on Netflix recently. I hope you enjoy this and I hope to be writing at least one more this month. I enjoy writing these posts. Also, this week, you can look forward to more product reviews, an unboxing, and a breakdown of the box I unboxed.

I loved this movie, so sue me! I loved the catchy songs and I thought that it was a unique plot. I was surprised that Disney never thought to do this before. Is music overdone on Disney? Yes, but I wasn’t feeling well and this just made my whole day in bed a lot better. There is going to be a sequel and I will be watching it for sure. I like Dove Cameron’s singing voice a lot better than the other girl’s voice in the movie, but that is just personal preference. I don’t think the singing talent was amazing or anything. I just enjoyed the catchy tones to songs new and old from Disney.

Juniper Ascending
This was an interesting concept for a movie, but not executed in the way that it should have been. There were two great lead roles and I felt the chemistry between them. However, there were things that didn’t make any sense in the plot and it was boring at times. I didn’t really understand fully what was going on and when I thought I did, there was an event or something said that would contradict it. This movie had the potential to be great, but it fell short. Now, it was just interesting. Nothing more, nothing less.

The Longest Ride
The Longest Ride
Oh, I loved this movie, even if I didn’t read the book! Now, I really want to read the book. Let me know when you are done with it, Danielle. This movie was everything I needed it to be: perfectly romantic and tragic. It was bittersweet, but filled with humorous moments. I recommend this to anyone who wants to watch a good romance and possibly cry a little. I’m not going to lie, I did tear up with this one. Stupid pregnancy hormones. This is not your typical Nicholas Sparks movie. He has truly broken his own predictable mold.

The Age of Adaline
I really enjoyed this movie, even though it was a bit boring at times. I just love Blake Lively and I think that she is a terrific actress. She played her role very well and I cried a bit during this movie as well. It was so touching. I have been really loving romantic movies lately, especially ones that go from the present backwards. There were other great actors in this movie as well. It was a great cast and a unique plot. There is something refreshing about seeing something you have never seen before instead of an imitation or copy of other movies.

The Duff
I watched this with Danielle when she came over my house in September. This was hilarious and reminded me a bit of Mean Girls or another iconic movie like that. I enjoyed all of the talent in this movie and I liked that it was way more than just about making a girl over. It reached a deeper level, which is unique to the young adult/teen movies that you usually see. It was superficial, while cutting deeper into what kind of bullying girls do to girls. I was fully engrossed in this movie.
