Wonder Woman Review

Wonder Woman made her silver screen debut in Batman V Superman for a total of 20 minutes of screentime. It was 20 minutes of beautiful screentime that was easily the best part of the whole movie. Finally, she was able to let her light shine in her own movie and boy, it was just fantastic. It definitely wasn’t what I expected. Wonder Woman is so much more than just a superhero movie. Wonder Woman is breaking box office records and director Patty Jenkins is getting the recognition she deserves. She is the first female director to direct and make a superhero movie of this scale.

It is amazing. Not only the movie, but the impact that it has on the world already. It’s shocking, but people are surprised that Wonder Woman is doing so well. She needed to get her time on the big screen, and she got it just when we needed it most. If you need a refresh as to how awesome this movie looked, here’s the trailer.

As always read my spoiler warning before proceeding.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

This review may be relatively short because it has been over a week since I saw the movie. But at first glance, I was nervous to see this movie. I had been seeing Facebook reviews from critics who saw it early, and they were saying the movie is a flop. It scored a 27% rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes by critics! I went to see it with a bunch of friends and we all agreed on the same thing: Pirates of the Caribbean 5 was not as bad as the critics were making it out to be. As usual please read my spoiler warning before proceeding on to read!

My Scheming Mask – Kill those blackheads!

I know I said that I was done with review posts – but hear me out. The My Scheming Mask looked like it would actually be some help for my skin. I found it from Youtube and bought it off of amazon to try. What is it? A carbonated black head peel off mask that is supposed to pull out your blackheads and other gross crap from within your pores. When I look at my pores they always look like they’re full of gross crap so I thought I would try this. I found the mask on Amazon for $10 with free shipping.

Note: it’s not meant to go all over your face. It’s probably not meant for your chin either, but I did it anyways. Read below to see my steps and thoughts.

Hidden Figures: Movie Review

 

You guys have been getting a ton of reviews from me, but that’s because I’ve been reading and watching movies. Hidden Figures, the story of three black women in the 60’s working for NASA and having to struggle to climb up the scale, looked like it was going to be amazing from the start. Their work was revolutionary to the company and started an equal rights movement for NASA.

Katherine Johnson was recently awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her work in NASA. The film in based on true events and was absolutely spectacular. As always, read my spoiler warning before you proceed.

Sherlock Series 4 Thoughts

Since the day it was announced that Sherlock was getting a fourth season, the world was on edge waiting. First we had to wait two years for a special. Then we had to wait another whole year for a full season. By god, was it worth the wait. Sherlock season 4 had us on the edge of our seats every minute of all three episodes.

We were warned back at the first table read that it was going to be a heart breaking season. We were warned that the scripts moved the cast the to tears. I know that I was on the edge of my seat wanting more at the end of every episode. Without further ado, here are my Sherlock Series 4 Thoughts below the cut.

There may be spoilers. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. If you’re from the U.S, you can watch every episode online at PBS.org under the Masterpiece collection.

I Take You by Eliza Kennedy review

I joined Blogging for Books back in 2014 and finally got around to reading and reviewing the first book I requested. The the title of that book is I Take You, Here is the summary from Amazon’s website:

Meet Lily Wilder: New Yorker, lawyer extraordinaire, blushing bride. And totally incapable of being faithful to one man.

Lily’s fiancé Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and has no business getting married. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily’s nights—and mornings, and afternoons—of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet.

Unapologetically sexy with the ribald humor of Bridesmaids, this joyously provocative debut introduces a self-assured protagonist you won’t soon forget.

 

And boy where they right. This isn’t a book I would normally read, I’m really into YA Fiction novels, but I couldn’t help myself to have a love/hate relationship with Lily Wilder as time went on.
