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.

DOCTOR STRANGE movie review

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.

So here I am, (two weeks late) adding my review to the mix of the critic reviews. Here is my Suicide Squad Movie Review!

As always, read my spoiler warning before proceeding under the cut.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

It’s no secret that I am a die hard Harry Potter fan, and as I go through phases of life things seem to keep coming and going but Harry Potter seems to stay. I bought Harry Potter and the Cursed Child from Barnes and Noble a little while (maybe about a week) after it came out. This was of course after seeing numerous friends from Twitter saying it was absolutely terrible. I thought “This can not be! Queen Rowling could never put out something terrible!”. Needless to say, I rushed out to the store to get it and I banged out the whole thing in about two or three hours. Here is my honest review of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!
