Movie Review: Promising Young Woman(2020)

I recently just watch one of the best movies I have seen in a while. Promising Young Woman, a movie that just feels right to me and it is living in my mind, and I like that. I know this film just came out over a year ago, and yet it feels so timely to me. The story fits with what is happening with today society, and it tells the story perfectly in a unique way.

PYW, is a film about a girl dealing with the trauma that happen to her friend who was a promising young woman. She confronts men who try to rape women when they think she is drunk, and she deals with them.

  Carey Mulligan is great as the lead. I believe everything that she is going through and she gives off emotions as being cold, and you can just feel it from her. This is a good thing. Emerald Fennell is the writer and director behind the film. The choices she makes with her direction makes the story feel smooth and everything flows great together. The music is a good key element to the film for me. It fits the mood and the tone for me, and it comes on at the right time.

There is something about this film that seems off, but it draws you in, and it takes you into the moment that the character is in. I cannot pinpoint it, but it is there.

The one thing I think is missing is just little bit more back story. We know something happen that night, but I would have liked more details about that. I would have liked more details about the boys. We do not meet the boys until close to the end of the film. This is a type of film that makes you want to be a writer. It makes me want to write more.

I would give this film a 7 out 10.

Movie Review: Crazy/Beautiful(2001)

This is a movie that I saw years ago. It must have been almost 18 years since I saw this film for the first time. I just remember wanting to see this because of the actors. The film Bring it on, had just came out and it was very popular, and this actress was in it. The actress is Kirsten Dunst, and I was just starting to understand what exactly movies and acting were. I was about 10 at the time so everything was new to me.

The movie Crazy/Beautiful, seemed like it would be a good movie. I think that it was a great film. I have not seen this film in few years, but it always catches my attention when I see something about it. The story is a classic teenage love story girl likes boy, parents hates boy and tries to break them up you know the drill.

This is an okay film; the acting is great, and the story is good. This is a film that is good if want to just sit on the couch and chill and get a little distracted with the world. This is a film that is mostly for young adults so take that at your own will. Kristen Dunst and Jay Hernandez are great in their roles.

I would give this film a solid 6 out of 10. It is okay, but there is a lot more that could have been told.

Movie Review: Double Jeopardy(1999)

I have watch this moved about 3 or 4 times, and I love it almost every time. Double Jeopardy, introduce me to double jeopardy the law. The story about a wife being framed for the murder of her husband, but he is not dead. The story is a little complicated, but it was good. At least I think it was good for what it is. This is the first movie that I saw with Ashley Judd, and I must say she was good in this movie. Tommy Lee Jones, I knew him, but I never really watched anything that he was in before.

  I would say this is a movie to watch if there is nothing else to watch and you want to be thrilled and need a little mystery in your life. I would give this movie a solid 3 out 5 stars. The reason I am saying this is there is a lot going on, but there is still room to make this movie better. This movie is currently on Netflix, so you watch at any time.

Movie Review: What’s Love Got to Do with It(1993)

This movie must be one of my all times favorite. I have watched this movie almost 50 times. What’s Love Got to Do with It, is a movie that I think is a staple in a black child’s life. I know that sounds strange, but it is a movie that me and family watch all the time. This movie introduced me to Tina Turner, and I am forever grateful for that. This movie is the story of Tina Turner’s life, and it is truly breathtaking. My only problem with the movie is that I wish the movie were a little bit longer. There is so much that was missing and things I wanted to learn more about. I eventually learn them on my own, but I think they needed to be told.

This is a movie that everybody must see, and I just love this movie. Angela Bassett and Lawrence Fishburne did not play Ike and Tina, they were Ike and Tina. They both deserved everything that they got with these roles. Watch this movie whenever you get a chance, and you will not regret it.
