Movie Review – The Martian

Matt Damon really made this entire movie. It was well done, with a good story. The visuals are intersting, and it’s always fun to consider what life will be like as we start to colonize other planets. It also sparked my interest in horticulture! I couldn’t imagine being left to colonize a planet on my own. I like Mark Watleys humour and spunk. The character was very loveable and easy to relate to. Somebody you would want to go back to rescue for sure! A good film for anyone to watch! I would rate this film a 8.0 out of 10.

Movie Review – Magic Mike XXL

This movie gets a bad reputation just due to the fact that it is based on male stripping. People automatically assume because it stars Channing Tatum and it’s about stripping, that it is garbage. I have never been to a stripper in my life, but I do appreciate dance, art and beauty. This movie truly does accompany all these things. It was funny, it was sexy, it was beautiful and it was entertaining. The cast of cool celebrity appearances goes on and on in this movie. Childish Gambino (Donald Glover or you may know him as Troy from the TV show Community) Twitch (from The TV show So You Think You Can Dance) as well as Jada Pinkett-Smith’s appearances were awesome. I love how the one stripper is spiritual now and doing reiki, and how they consider themselves as healers helping women have fun and feel beautiful. It’s always great to see spiritual awareness in movies, even if there is fun being poked at it. The story is not so much what is captivating about this film, but more the way the film makes you feel. It really envokes a sense of fun and passion. The eye candy doesn’t hurt at all either! If you love dance, sexy men, and just want to have some fun and feel good, give this movie a watch! Although it has lower ratings elsewhere on the web, I would rate this film a 7.4 out of 10. It was definitely worth the watch!

Movie Review – Mad Max Fury Road


I’ll start out by saying how fun and entertaining this film is. The characters are brought to life by A list celebs Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, who as you can expect, do not disappoint. My one criticism would be that it was the same visuals all the way through. Like the movie Gravity, I just feel like they need to work in some back story or ways to show different scenery and bring other feelings and emotions to the movie. It just seems to get boring or dull when they are doing the same thing throughout the whole film. Other than that, it was  visually stunning and creative. A movie men and women will both enjoy for some entertainment! A good date night movie for sure! I would rate this film a 7.8 out of 10.

Movie Review – Fifty Shades of Grey


I am quite a shy person by nature, one of the reasons this movie got put off for so long.. Also because my boyfriend refused to watch it with me! I am not sure why.. I haven’t read these books, so I wouldn’t be able to make a comparison or base my feelings on this movie having read the novel. Some people have said it doesn’t live up to the novel, which is generally the case in most movies adapted from novels. I finally got a chance to watch it this weekend. As a newcomer to the series, I thought it was a well done movie. It held my attention throughout, the actors were believable enough, it had just enough sex scenes without over doing it or under doing it, and the love story captured my heart. It was much more romantic to me than I expected it was going to be. I guess I’m a sucker for romantic shows!!! (See my review of the new season of The Bachelorette coming up!!) I thought it was a perfect date night or girls night movie!! I read articles that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson weren’t happy with the film, but I thought their on screen chemistry was great! I am a new fan of both of them! Although it has quite low ratings on other sites, I feel this movie deserves a 6.8 out of 10. If you want to watch some romance and a little heated sexual content, this movie is for you!

Movie Review – Fury


Having recently watched the movie, American Sniper, it reminded me that I really should do a review of Fury. My boyfriend and I both agreed that Fury was a much better film between the 2. The actors were engaging and entertaining. Although it was a war movie, and I am not usually a big fan of war type movies, this one was enjoyable. The subject matter was interesting and captivating. Brad Pitt is solid as per usual. Shia LaBeouf never disappoints. Logan Lerman was definitely suitable in his role as the newbie. Michael Pena is solid in every film I have ever seen him in. Jon Bernthal is also a unique actor that brings a ton of artistic flavor to the movie, he is one of the most interesting actors, especially the character he plays in this movie. Besides the boat load of amazing and talented actors, this film depicts a true sense of honor and pride, strength and courage. I would rate this film a 8.2 out of 10. This blog is just my opinion!

Movie Review – The Skeleton Twins


I’ll be honest, when I put this movie on, I had never heard of it and had no idea what it was about. Let me tell you, I truly enjoyed this movie. It was enjoyable and entertaining. The characters were lovable and believable in their roles. The story was heart wrenching and so relatable. I love anything that brings awareness to the topics of suicide and depression, and this film was so great because it was realistic, yet not too dark. I really felt the love this film captured within its story. I also appreciated the way the movie explored relationship dynamics. This film kept me entertained and interested the whole way through. I would suggest it for any adults to watch! I would rate this movie a 7.8 out of 10. This blog is just my opinion!

Movie Review – Walk of Shame

walk of shame


I had to post a review for Walk of Shame, because I just loved it and thought it was so funny. A great girls night movie or date night movie! Elizabeth Banks is really an all around good actress in the film, funny without going overboard. I love how the cats hate her and Pookie was a good laugh too. The predicaments she gets in, although outrageous, could easily happen to everyone and probably have at some time. It also really highlights how we are judged based on our appearances, but lets not take this film that seriously… Let’s enjoy it for its comedy merit. I would rate this movie a 6.8 out of 10. That is just my opinion!

Movie Review – Guardians of the Galaxy



Although I am a woman, and have no background knowledge of characters or story lines when it comes to movies based on comic books, Guardians of the Galaxy was a solid entertaining watch. I can see why Chris Pratt landed the leading role. In the first part of the movie, I was unsure about how his performance would be, but he definitely filled the shoes of Peter Quill. It was fun, visually entertaining, exciting, heart warming at times and hilarious. Lots of interesting characters played by great actors, kept me entertained all the way through. Groot is the most lovable tree you will ever meet and Rocket Racoon is so funny and smart. This is a great summer movie for all! I would rate this movie an 8.5 out of 10. That is just my opinion!

Movie Review – Noah



I have to say, I really enjoyed this movie. I am not one for religious content normally, but this movie was action packed, and very interesting. The imagery was absolutely beautiful, and the characters and story felt believable. Loved the visuals and how it portrayed the earth and the universe at a different time in human existence. I also love a movie that makes me expand my conceptual thinking and offer new perspectives than what my brain is conditioned to believe as the truth. This movie was definitely worth the watch! I would rate it 7.6 out of 10. That is just my opinion! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Movie Review – Don Jon

Took some time the other day (while there were no kids around!!) to watch Don Jon. At first it was a lot of porn and a-typical male ego, and I was finding it kind of hard to watch. It actually turned out to be a good story, with some real truths and lessons in it. Not to mention Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks amazing!! So does Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore!! A different take on love and relationships then I would generally root for, but I actually liked the lesson I took out of it after watching the whole thing, and I would recommend for you to watch it (if your over 18!), but eyes (and comfort levels) beware, there is a lot of sexual content. I would give it about a 6.8 out of 10. This blog is just my opinion! Thanks for stopping by!
