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.
The time has finally come for Alyssa to come out of the shadows and review another Marvel movie. Doctor Strange was hyped and highly anticipated by people all over the world. Some of the reasons why it was hyped may not have been the best reason, like white-washing the Ancient One by casting Tilda Swinton, but none the less people were excited to see the official debut of the Sorcerer Supreme, Stephen Strange. I finally got around to seeing it Sunday night in full IMAX 3D glory, and my god this movie was fucking fantastic in every single way I can think of.

When I first heard of a movie about bad people doing good things, I laughed in my head. Bad people don’t do good things. But then I saw the trailer for Suicide Squad, and immediately I was hooked. It looked like an awesome go out and have a fun night and some drinks kind of movie. But when it came out, the critics absolutely tore it apart. So here I am, (two weeks late) adding my review to the mix of the critic reviews. Here is my Suicide Squad Movie Review!
I am dead. I am deceased. I am writing this review from my grave. If you’ve been following me for ages, or just know me period, you know that I am probably one of the worlds biggest Marvel fangirls. I’ve had by this time the chance to see Captain America: Civil war not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES. Once prescreening, once pirated online, and the third with friends. My opinion still is pretty much the same, but I was able to pick up on different things seeing it more than once. So here it is, my official Captain America Civil War Review!
As always read my spoiler warning here and don’t bitch if I reveal a spoiler.
DEADPOOL IS HERE. I REPEAT, DEADPOOL IS FINALLY FUCKING HERE. Of course s with any Marvel movie, I went to the pre-screening the day before it came out with my brother (this time we brought along my older brother and my boyfriend). I’m gonna state this now, before the cut so that if anyone doesn’t wanna read the review cause they’re seeing the movie can still see it:
If you plan on going to an AMC theater, you need to have an ID on you just in case they ask. Last night when we went, my brothers confirmation code was not working that he printed out online so we went to the guy to have him help us and he asked for all our IDs, then proceeded to say that we needed someone over 21 in our group. My older brother turns 23 today, but he forgot his ID.
They refused to let us in until he went back and got his ID. Luckily for us, we were early so we quickly drove back to my brothers apartment so he could run in and get his ID and then back, getting there at exactly 10:00 (which is when the movie started). We showed him his ID and then they FINALLY told us “If you just showed me this than you would have been fine.” and then told us we also could have just redeemed the code at the stand where the person takes the tickets.
So there’s a PSA: Bring an ID just incase they ask for one and plan to have someone over 21 buy your tickets, or get them online and just scan them where the ticket person is.
Now, onto the review! (I’ll be writing this review in the style of Deadpool, a.k.a a lot of swears)
Important note before reading: If you are one of those fans who are trying to stay as far away from spoilers as possible until you see it, this post is absolutely not for you.
Does this really need an introduction? No. It doesn’t. Below the cut is my review on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Side note: if you read this review and then complain to me that I spoiled it, it’s your own damn fault for being to stupid not to heed my warning.)
