Movie Review

Girls Trip

I finally managed to go and see Girls Trip (2017) and I feel inclined to review it. Not only is the movie filled with 99.9% black, all the main cast are black women, and the main guy is not really a main guy and only vaguely used as a plot device. The most important thing about this movie is friendship, and knowing your self worth. Not only is this movie absolutely hilarious -it had me crying because I was laughing so much. At the same time, its quite inspirational as well.

This is a comedy, so I did expect some laughs. It started off really high on the comedy scale, having everybody laughing with tears in their eyes pretty quickly. The movie managed to stay very strong comedy wise, which is usually very rare from the comedies I’ve seen. At some point, comedies usually get a quite dull, or just not very strong. The movie did deal with some very relatable and serious stuff, but that wasn’t made fun of. The serious topics gave the movie a great underlining plot-line, which works so well with everything else. I don’t really want to spoil what these topics are, so I shall just stick with “serious topics”. As I’ve already said tho, those topics are never part of the comedy, never made fun of and taken seriously. I always find it important that somebody’s struggles aren’t a tool for comedy, to make fun of a person or whatever, etc, if that makes sense (I hope it does). The serious stuff is there and relevant to the plot line, and lets the characters stick out as individual people, making them relatable and likeable. That and the aspect of comedy just work so well together, I’m struggling to put it into words. Comedy and friendship was at it’s core and never once failed to make the entire audience laugh hysterically. Even as people left the screen, they were laughing and had tears in their eyes. People had even clapped during the performance. It’s just such an amazing movie, so uplifting, strong, positive and so damn well made.

As I’ve already said, friendship is a key aspect of this movie, together with learning, knowing and accepting one’s own self worth. The movie concluded with preaching, in a way, that you should not let anybody else tell you you’re worth any less without them and that best friends are really important. I don’t really know how to put this into words. I was just very inspired by the way a certain thing was dealt with, and shed a few more tears because it spoke to me on so many levels (and to so many others, as well).

In a nutshell, never let any other person determine how much you are worth, don’t let anybody ever pull you down and manipulate you into thinking, that you’d be worth less without them. That ain’t true. And good, honest friends are difficult to find. Don’t lose your friends over anyone.

If I had to give this a rating out of 10, I think I’d give it a 14/10, it is just that good.

Sunny Saturday

It is truly lovely weather outside. The sun is shining, it’s warm, and its a Saturday. Saturdays are usually my favourite day of the week, and I do enjoy the sun.

But recently I just haven’t been feeling myself. I think its a combination of Holiday blues and moving house. I can’t seem to get into the habit of writing anything, despite having many ideas. Is it too warm? Am I too preoccupied? Who knows, because I don’t.

I really hope this weird mood disappears soon so I can really figure out what to write about and what to film for my youtube channel.

Things I considered writing were book reviews and movie reviews. I watch heck of a lot of movies and when I do manage to read a book, I would enjoy reviewing it properly (instead of just in my mind).

I personally would love to review recent movies here on this blog, from a queer biracial point of view. Time to set some time aside for that! (And to remember to actually take some notes before and after?)

My Favourite Game on my Phone

Today I shall talk about the most favourite Game currently on my Phone. It’s part of the christmas thing, because I was suggested this game in december and finished playing it within about two days.

The Game is called Monument Valley

And these are some screen shots I took. It messes a little with your mind but its lovely. I haven’t managed to buy the In-app Game yet, but I just downloaded it.
On Itunes it says it’s the Apple Game of the Year 2014, so some of you have probably heard of this game already.
I love the colours used and how it messes with your mind a little. You also have to use your brain a little and it is very entertaining. I couldn’t stop playing it. I really look forward to playing the In-App game, which is about£1.49 I think. 

The next game I’m gonna try is Tengami, which looks really interesting. I paid £3.99 for it and apparently is a complete game with no In-App purchases which was appealing and no in-game advertisements which is also a positive.
