As bad as 2020 has been around the world I have to be thankful for a number of reasons. Sure there have been a ton of bad things that had happened in the year. I know there are a lot of people suffering and I even had a huge break up earlier in the year. Still I have tons of things to celebrate.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a romantic comedy that came out back in 2009. Seeing as it's not that long ago, watching this movie will make you realize how fast societal norms have changed in such a short time. There are a ton of antics and phrases that people use in this movie that would not be acceptable today but like many movies of this era you watch them for face value.
Aladdin the animated movie from 1992 is a classic Disney animated movie. It's so popular that they decided to make a live action remake in 2019. It's been so long and I don't know why it's taken me this long to finally see it. I remember that it was popular when I was a kid but I never got to watch it. It kind of slipped through the cracks for almost 30 years. Luckily, I finally got the chance to watch it.
Hustlers came out in 2019 and I think people overlooked this movie because of the wrong reasons. It looks like a run of the mill crime movie about stripper. In a way it is but if you watch the movie, you'll realize there are layers to this crime movie that you wouldn't really think about. Even crazier is that this movie was loosely based off a true story.
Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given comes out at a time when quite frankly we need it. It's sort of similar to his last outing Kevin Hart: Irresponsible. I was a little worried about that. I wasn't a huge fan of his last outing but it seems he's come back to form for me. At least I could relate more to the material that he delivered in this special than the last one. I think the last special had more of a parental feel that I couldn't really relate to as a single person. This one had more of a general understanding that I could get with.
The Spy Who Dumped me is a comedy that came out in 2018. It's got a lot of clever moments that I wished they would push more for but ultimately I found that the movie was a little uneven. That's not to say that you can't have some variety in a movie, it's just that some of it is too out of place.
