Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B

So I wasn’t going to watch this since every person that saw it hated it but I really needed to watch the Aaliyah: The Princess of R & B movie for my own personal benefit.

So VH1 has a tendency of doing bad biographies i.e. The Brittany Murphy Story, Anna Nicole, and let’s not forget Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret.

So I decided to mentally prepare myself to watch Aaliyah: The Princess of R & B with high hopes and as soon as the first scene came on I was done. So Wendy Williams was the executive producer of this horrendous movie, she says she is quite proud of this movie, well if you are proud of trash I guess that is something to be proud of.

Wendy Williams never should have made this god awful movie. If you haven’t seen this movie you may be wondering what could possibly be wrong with this movie. Well here it goes.

  1. They couldn’t use any of Aaliyah’s music because they didn’t get the rights to do so making it impossible for them to actually do any scenes requiring Alexandra Shipp (Aaliyah) to sing or do any of her music videos except for two or three songs Alexandra Shipp sang throughout the movie (not good enough). How do you make a biopic about a singer and not use her music? You can’t.
  2. The lack of good casting i.e. Cle’ Bennett as R. Kelly (looked nothing like R. Kelly), Chattrisse Dolabaille as Missy Elliott (looked nothing like Missy Elliott), and Izaak Smith as Timbaland (looked nothing like TImbaland).
  3. Aaliyah’s actual parents didn’t like this movie, didn’t approve it, and were against them making this movie; they felt it wasn’t done with Aaliyah’s best intentions.
  4. The acting was terrible, not convincing, was pretty bad.
  5. The movie felt rushed, very low budget.

As you can see this movie was terrible. As an Aaliyah fan, I was highly disappointed with how this movie was done. I think everyone should see this movie at least once, just once, that is more than enough.

Gotham

So there are a few shows that are new on TV but the one I found to be absolutely amazing is Gotham.

Who seriously doesn’t like a show about Batman and the city of Gotham?

I was a little hesitant about the show at first but from the moment I watched the first episode, I was instantly hooked.

The show revolves around Commissioner James Gordon’s rise to importance in Gotham City years before the arrival of Batman.

The show is well written, eye catching, the set design is appealing, and I seriously can’t get enough.

If you haven’t seen the show, at least watch the first episode and go from there.

22 Jump Street

So 22 Jump Street was actually great!

21 Jump Street from what I remember was funny; that movie was such a blur though.

I think the only thing I remember from 21 Jump Street was the cast of the show 21 Jump Street making their appearance. As a kid of the 80s who would religiously watch the show I definitely could appreciate that, I would’ve been mad if they didn’t make an appearance.

So with 22 Jump Street it starred my favorites Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in this buddy comedy about two cops going undercover at you guessed it a college.

The movie was funny from start to finish, I wasn’t bored once.

I don’t want to give it all away but if you haven’t seen this movie, please see it, it was definitely a good watch.

Neighbors

So Neighbors was the type of movie that had stupid humor to it. I liked the first half of it but than it was kind of like ok when will this movie be over?

They definitely showed the best scenes in the commercial but again it was a typical stupid comedy with actors that I love together, acting.
Would I buy this movie? No. Do I recommend you see the movie at least once? Yes.

I love Seth Rogen, I love Zac Efron, I also love Rose Byrne; great casting.
I am not saying the movie was terrible, it was a good movie to see with friends or when your high but it wasn’t the best.

Spooky Movie Night

Hey guys so today is Halloween, stuck at work till 11 PM, I want to really watch a super scary movie when I get out of work, taking suggestions on some awesome scary movies to watch tonight.

Definitely aiming towards Poltergeist, maybe a less scary movie like Beetlejuice, or maybe Nightmare Before Christmas, whatever you guys suggest, I won’t judge you (a little).

X-Men: Days of Future Past

I am such a nerd when it comes to super hero / action / fantasy movies, it’s pretty bad.

A friend of mine let me borrow this so of course I watched it the same night and I wasn’t disappointed, by far one of the best X-Men movies to date.

The movie showed less of some of the veteran characters like Storm (Halle Berry) and showed more of the newer/younger characters which I definitely could appreciate.

The movie was roughly 131 minutes long which isn’t too bad, it kept me on the edge of my seat and left me in suspense.

The way the movie ended you could tell they were going to make another one, it’s pretty obvious.

Patrick Stewart (Professor X) and Ian McKellen (Magneto) are so good together, they are my favorite characters next to Jennifer Lawrence (Raven / Mystique) and Hugh Jackman (Logan / Wolverine).

This will be another movie added to my collection for sure.

Oculus

So this movie was interesting?

I watched this with my fiance, my best friend, and her husband about two weeks ago, let’s just say I won’t watch it again. I felt that the movie was so confusing with a few scary parts that there was nothing more to this movie than those parts.
The plot had potential and I felt every mirror I looked at would mess with my mind but overall this was not the greatest horror movie. I know not every horror movie can be Poltergeist but still.

The ending just annoyed me and was predictable.

If you love potentially ok horror movies, this one is for you.

What A Trip

So Memphis was amazing, I got to see my best friend in the whole world, her daughter/my niece, and her husband.

There was so many sights and sounds that I will never forget (I have pictures to prove it).

Spending my birthday in Memphis was incredible, turning 30 wasn’t that terrifying.

The best part of the trip was getting engaged on my birthday, it was a very beautiful day even though it rained.

Now as I sit in the airport waiting to board the plane for Connecticut all I can do is smile, so happy!

We took off and it was amazing, I absolutely love to fly.

I figured I would take some photos while on the plane to capture the idea of swimming through clouds!
