Movie lover, blogger and over all a person trying to make it to the stars!
I remember being in college, where I took a film class as part of my required communication elective. As much as I loved this class, I had an overwhelming amount of movies to watch that my professor thought were masterpieces. It was for the most part a great learning experience, but I need an ounce of stupid in my life. Around this time, I was into Troll 2, a movie that I will definitely talk about another time, but after my film class I needed something new. I read online about this movie called The Room, which came out in 2003. I never hear of this movie before, but it was being called "The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies" (funny, that's one of the movies I had to watch in my film class). I found a copy of this, and what I saw changed me.
The Unauthorized Full House Story
This is hopefully the last time I review an "unauthorized" story. I feel like they are just trying to tell a scandalous story with these, but what it is, is a cheap attempt to cash in on a popular show. Luckily for this one it's only slightly better than the Saved by the Bell one in that it doesn't focus on one person's side of the story. The down side: the acting and the set is way worse. When I pressed play I expected to see somewhat of a look into Bob Saget's best stand up comedy, Dave Coulier dating, Alanis Morissette and John Stamos having better hair.
Garbage Pail Kids
Oh the 1980s, what a time to be alive. Now granted I was born in 1985, so I missed half of it (only because I can't remember most of it). The movies that came out during this decade were classic. Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Empire Strikes Back, the list goes on and on. But you know which movie never gets mentioned on this list: The Garbage Pail Kids Movie, and you know why? Because this movie is the worst piece of crap that's ever been put on film. I never heard of this movie until a couple of years ago when I saw a couple of my favorite reviewers talk about this so I figured now works before I do Lifetime Movie month (yes I'm bringing it back!) to see how bad this movie is.
'Fifty Shades Darker' Review
Could it be, I found a worse movie than Fifty Shades of Grey? Yes I did, the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker. I know I'm late as they say on this review because this came out in the beginning of 2017, but I was still trying to recover from the original movie and let's be honest, I really tried as long as possible to not see this (call it my procrastination or just call it me trying not to lose brain cells for as long as possible). In case you couldn't tell, I'm not a fan of this "franchise." I couldn't finish the first book because I thought it was the worst writing since I wrote a story in second grade about a blob named SOOOOO who liked to go fishing (yes I did write that, and maybe it's better than these books). Fifty Shades of Grey the movie I thought was dull, not sexy and full of red flags of an abusive relationship. Nearly the thought of the sequel really got me in the fetal position. Telling my boyfriend that I was going to watch this, he gave me my sympathy (being a good girlfriend I would never let him watch this with me). Well here it goes, finally, I'm sure you wanted me to suffer. This is my review of Fifty Shades Darker.
Is The Emoji Movie the Worst Animated Movie Ever?
When I first heard they were making a movie about emojis, my first thought was, Wow, that is the laziest idea I've ever heard. I guess some guys in Hollywood looked at his phone and said, I can make a movie about this. Yet at the same time, I thought it was a big joke, like seriously we've come to making movies about silly pictures you send your friends? But yes, people, there is a movie in which emojis are the stars and the center point. The trailers for this looked like a half-assed attempt to make a Wreck It Ralph spin-off or a clone.
Cartoon All Stars to the Rescue
DRUGS ARE BAD MMMK! Now I remember a time when every kid's hero in the late 80s and early 90s was telling them not to do drugs. I, from time to time, will watch these and laugh, they are corny for the most part, but because they really don't educate you about why pot is bad. They tell you that pot can ruin your life, you'll lose your family, you won't do good in school etc. But for me personally, pot isn't the worse drug on the planet, not by a long shot. Yet people fear it could lead to other drugs. Though I personally never had the need to do hardcore drugs because I've seen it in my life to know better, people have this fear that pot is the gateway drug. While some studies believe this isn't the case, others have seen this happen. Me, I'll just drink wine (the drink that can cause liver damage, totally legal!)
Are Remakes Killing Original Movies?
Now I know what you're thinking, oh hell yes of course remakes are killing original movies. There is no way that Hollywood hasn't had a good idea since the 80's. Well yes and no. I know I know, you're thinking geezz this girl can't make up her mind. She must be drinking crazy juice. Well if you're calling wine my crazy juice I'll take it. But hear me out as to why I think there is hope for original ideas.
