  • I liked it a lot! It reminded me how super enjoyable womens weepies are!
    Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

    • We took the kiddos to see Ralph Breaks the Internet and it was cute! We liked the first one a lot too so I had high hopes going into the sequel, but since it's been so long, you never know. I actually cried a little at this one scene between Ralph and Venellope when they talk about being best friends and it made me wonder if I was pregnant again, because UGH the EMOTIONS. *I'm NOT pregnant* But for real, Sarah Silverman should turn this gig into a TV show because she's so damn cute as Venellope! I would legit watch any version of Venellope the Race Car Driver that they beamed into my TV.

      At some point, I would like to return to a life of watching movies that aren't made for the 5 and under set, but we all have far fetched dreams.

      • On our date night, we saw...Aquaman. ROMANCE. Anyway, it was fucking ridiculous. Fun, batshit, way too long and trying to be, like, ten movies at once. And Patrickí Wilson LOLOL. That said, itís my second favorite of the DC things (Wonder Woman 4evah) because theyíve finally learned from Marvel that movies are allowed to contain humor.

        • We saw On the Basis of Sex and it was really good! I don't know how accurate it is to real life events, but there wasn't a single point where I felt like it dragged. Felicity Jones is awesome in it and I'm pretty surprised she didn't get any award season love. Armie Hammer basically plays Armie Hammer, but he was also fine.

          Also, I can't imagine the insane pressure it must have been to be Jane Ginsberg as a teen and young adult, but she is also a rock star in life. Maybe that whole family just has diamond genes and they think pressure is fun?

            • Booksmart for life, y'all. It sucks that it didn't do well and I really hope it finds an audience once it's available elsewhere because it's so good. People keep calling it the female Superbad, but I like it better than Superbad. It felt more like Bridesmaids, but for the high school crowd. Like there are moments that feel so gut wrenching and awkward, but then you're like laughing at the same time. And then there are scenes that feel funny on the surface, but actually kinda wanna make you cry too. Just SO good.

              • I understand where it is imperfect but I loved Star Wars and I doubt I will stop loving it. It was fan service that worked for me, because JJ Abrams gets that Star Wars is about family, and that’s really the only story he is good at telling.
                I cried every single time Leia showed up on the screen, and basically through all of the last hour of the movie. I was completely unspoiled and had no clue Han was showing up, no clue about Rey being a Palpatine, and no idea that they had that much random footage of Carrie Fisher to use. I even liked Emo Kylo Ren’s story and how it finished.

                That said, I did not like the part where JJ undid parts of the last movie, like making Rey a Palpatine instead of a nobody, and nixing the Finn/Rose romance.

                Ewoks!

                • I thought the new SW was just aight. It's no Mandalorian! And I thought the reveal about Rey was bad bad bad.

                  And, unpopular opinion outside dickbag fanboys but I was FINE with Rose getting sidelined. I will never abide what the fans do to female stars but I thought she and Finn had zero chemistry, I thought her part was poorly written (and the actress was just ok -- she might be great in better material! I don't know) and her entire subplot in TLJ made no sense because it was a wild goose chase. I've tried to rewatch that movie a few times and I snore on out of there every time they get to the heat of her sorta romance with Finn.

                  I thought ROS was mediocre (like more than half the franchise! Heh). I really like Poe and Finn together. Their chemistry was off the charts and if they had kissed at some point, I would have been like: I get it! They're great together! The did Poe's character right after a weird dude-bro turn in The Last Jedi.

                  I also saw Queen & Slim starring Jodie Turner-Smith! I thought the movie was rather sad and a smidge heavy-handed and some of the editing downright questionable but also worth seeing, charismatic performances all around, sad statement on the state on race relations and the everyday terrors that black folks in America face. And I was the only white person in the theater. So that's another statement, I guess? White people want to see this movie as much as men of any race want to see Little Women, I guess?

                    Samesies. On our way out, Mr. Issie was like, "So...?" And I think my exact words were, "It was fine." He was annoyed that I didn't love or hate it probably because he wanted to dissect it more and I wasn't giving him anything to break down, but I didn't feel any emotional connection to any character really. They all could have died or survived or made out with each other and I don't think my opinion would change. I'm 100% Amy Poehler.
