    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.

    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?

    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 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.

    Now Iíve got Shallow stuck in my head again. I liked this version a lot and they performances were excellent. It didnít make me sob like the previous two but thatís probs cos Iíve become hardened in my old age (though I rewatched the Streisand one recently and I did shed a few tears but some of that may have been nostalgia! In my youth I got through a whole box of tissues over the Garland version).

    We went to see A Star is Born and it was really good! Gaga was very, very good and despite her being a HUGE star, she managed to disappear almost completely into the role. I never associated who she was on the screen with the meat dress pop star, even when she was being a pop star in the movie. And y'all know I find BCoop tedious and super into himself, but even I had to admit that I thought he was awesome in this. If you've seen the other versions, there aren't any surprises, but the music is good and the performances are still engaging.

    Iíve also read only the first book! I actually didnít love the movie as much as I thought I would, but I think itís only because some of the dialogue wasnít as snappy as I wouldíve liked. The casting was GREAT. And yes, Awkwafina in all of my future entertainment, please.

    I saw it this weekend too. It made me want to go to Singapore as a very rich person. My understanding is that in the books Astrid gets some loving, so now I want to read them too. She was the best.

    I was late to the Crazy Rich Asians party, but finally got to see it this weekend and I loved it. I mean, obvs, since it's a rom com, there was basically no way that I wouldn't love it, but I loved it even more than I thought I would. Lately, if a movie has been super hyped, I've found myself a little disappointed (Wonder Woman), but that was not the case with this! Awkwafina is my new fave and I need her and Ken Jeong to play dad and daughter in every movie from now on, regardless of topic. Also, I don't know if the sequel involves Gemma Chan making babies with Harry Chum, but sign me up for that. Also also, while I've read the first book, I never got around to reading the rest of the trilogy so now I have MOAR BOOKS to look forward to!

    Thanks for the warning, I was already booked to see it and forewarned is forearmed. Not hateful - has some great moments - but definitely not the feelgood, lighthearted cheese fest I was expecting after the first film (and in dire need of atm). Needed more Meryl. And better songs. The audience applauded at the end though, so it must hitting the spot for lots of people.

    THERE ARE NO BAD ABBA SONGS.

    No for reals, I didn't see the first one until a couple of months ago, and got really bored with it really fast. So based on your rec, I guess I won't bother with the second one.

    So Mamma Mia was teh suck, you guys. It was SO cheesy and like, not the good kind that you want to sop up with a biscuit. Just super spray cheese. And then it was also boring? Like, I fell asleep for a solid 15-20 minutes. Granted, I was tired going into it, but it's been awhile since I straight up slept in a movie theater. The addition of Cher did not make up for the subtraction of Meryl. And Amanda Pretty Hair Whose Last Name I Can't Remember And Am Too Lazy To Google can not carry a movie like this on her shoulders. Also, for the most part, they used the bad Abba songs.

    The Incredibles 2 was every bit as good as the first one and Mr. T was mesmerized. We considered bring BB2, but I think we've got a year before he's good to be in a theater for that long. Plus, we watched it in IMAX and some of our friends who saw it in regular theaters said there were warning signs posted about the flashing lights throughout the movie, but ours did not have those signs. Thankfully, Mr. T doesn't have epilepsy or other photosensitivity in general, but man that would have been really intense on an IMAX screen.

    Jack Jack vs. the raccoon is the funniest shit I've seen all year, no exaggeration. Mr. Issie was straight up hyperventilating.
