Let me start off by saying I have been a massive RuPaul's Drag Race fan and have seen every episode from every season as well as seen a couple of the Drag Race queens perform live. I've never taken the time to review the series season by season up until recently.
Today it's kind of hard to find a non-action movie starring Tom Cruise. He's pretty well known as an action star despite the fact that he's not as young as he used to be. It's especially different when you see him starring in a movie based on a true story. Usually these are reserved for actors that want to get awards like Oscars and Golden Globes.
Who on Earth would have thought a movie named Dolittle would do so...little?
I remember watching Blankman back in 1994 when it first came out. I loved it but then again I was a kid back then. As a child I hadn't seem too many movies so this was an absolute eyeopener for me. Superhero movies weren't as big as they are today but they were on the rise. The Michael Keaton Batman was the biggest superhero back in those days. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were all the rage and fantastic show called In Living Color was killing it on TV.
Joker arrived at Redbox so I finally got a chance to watch the film that so many paid reviewers working for the production company went on record as calling a triumph. I always find my wife is a good sounding board for whether something is quality or not. Three quarters of the way through Joker she feel asleep, and I had the volume cranked to 59!
Every time I go back to watch an older 80's movie I remember how much of a different time it was back then. They sure played around with some wacky concepts. I think that's great because they came up with a lot of fun ideas. Many of these ideas got duplicated over and over through newer generation of movies. The Dream Team is another crazy concept.
Matt Groening had first captured our hearts with the Simpsons. He followed that with Futurama. The only thing was Futurama didn't have as much of a following as the Simpsons. That's because Futurama went into a totally different direction than the Simpsons. Futurama dealt with adults (some of them not human) and their relationship with one another in the future. Their sitcom scenarios came from jobs that they had to run.
Never judge a book by its cover. Friendship is very important.
Recently, I was able to watch Eddie Murphy's 1999 movie Life on Netflix. I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I saw the summary for this movie. It was a movie starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence so I naturally thought it would be a comedy but it's kind of a mix of drama and comedy.
The Greatest Showman had earned some buzz when it was first released back in 2017. I didn't get a chance to see it. Although, I was also hesitant of watching it since it was said to be a musical. This genre is kind of a hit or miss with me. The last one I really enjoyed was La La Land but that was a long time ago. They don't normally win me over. Maybe I'm too much of a simpleton to get them.
Ever since a sexual harassment accusation torpedoed the political career of city councilor Anna Dawson (Zoie Palmer), things have been hard for both her and her teenage daughter Carrie (Aviva Mongillo) as they find themselves struggling to make ends meet in the wake of the scandal. Even more frustrating, Carrie knows the person responsible for orchestrating her mother's downfall: Madeline Cooper (Bree Turner), their next-door neighbor and the perfection-obsessed Queen Bee of the neighborhood.
