"Atomic Blonde" → 007 Fantasitc Femme Fetale!

Image
Film Synopsis: An undercover MI6 agent (Charlize Theron) is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent & recover a missing list of double agents.... 


Quite the film! This movie should have been called the "Explosive Blonde" because Theron was killer dynamite and explosive in the film! I am still reeling at the terrific job that she did in the film! 


Theron is such a wonderful actress, in my candid opinion! To see her play a role as equivalent to James bond was very- enlightening. 



I say that because Hollywood has projected the image that men are the tough kick-ass people who do the macho killing and tracking "the bad guys"down & taking what is theirs away from them. You do not see films like this too often, if ever. 



Sofia & Charlize had chemistry and I am not referring to their sex scenes, I am referring to the magic that generated off of them on camera. I could see it and feel their bond and it was HIGHLY believable.

"Girls Trip" → A Succulent Grapefruit Adventure!

Film Synopsis: The story of four life long friends: Ryan (Regina Hall), Sasha (QueenLatifah), Dina (Tiffany Haddish), & Lisa (Jada Pinkett-Smith) who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Music Festival where sisterhoods are re-kindled & wild sides are rediscovered! 


Where do I even begin? Granted, this was a very raunchy & explicit film that was die-hard hilarious, there was some truth and realism associated with it. 



I and you, if you have seen it or will see it CANNOT deny that. The real message that was relayed was what the character of Ryan said in her speech at the close of the film & that is to be real with not only yourself, but to the world: SPEAK...YOUR...TRUTH



Be YOU! Do not put on fronts and pretend to be something that you aren't just to suffice and to make someone else happy while you are miserable. It doesn't work & that is a fact! Don't give someone that power over you! Now that the important portion of my rating is out of the way-…

"Wish Upon" → Wishes Successfully Granted!

Film Synopsis: A teenage girl (Joey King) discovers a box that carries magical powers & a very deadly price for using them.


I had been eagerly awaiting the arrival for this film ever since I heard and read about it. 

I am a huge fan of horror films. Always have been- but there was some thing that piqued my interest with one. It wasn't like the REGULAR EVERYDAY normal films. There was a little mystery with it. 



Not like make 7 wishes and then you die. It took it a step further. Claire, basically was a high school kid that got bullied and she fought back by finding her own power within herself to stand up to others, but then when the box came to her (courtesy of someone- nottelling whom) she succumbed to its magical charms- wanting more & more of its power.



She was NOT fulling paying attention of its supernatural repercussions to her wishes. She let what the box was giving her cloud her judgement and the type of person that she was. 



It took her two best friends and especially he…

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" → A Tightly Glued Young Man!

Film Synopsis: Several months after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker (Tom Holland), with the help of his mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego, Spider-Man as a new threat emerges: the Vulture.

Out of all of the three Spider men that there have been- Holland really is a natural at it. Maybe having a kid play Spiderman was all that was needed to be a huge success! McGuire was older while Garfield was young, but he wasn't in the same mindset of acting as Holland is. 




I praised Tom Holland's performance in this film. He took it & made it all his own. He was nutty, loopy, and a kid all at the same time while being funny rescuing and saving the day...each and every single day of his life. 


The way that he was introduced by Tony Stark was stellar because Tony Stark is head of the Avengers and he is funny just as Spider man. 


These two…
