Reviews From Movieland

Alright, while slightly under the weather, this week, I watched quite a bit of things. From older to newer, I distracted my aching self from my woes with the brilliance that “Hollywood” had to offer.

First up, lets go ahead and hit the romantic side of things…

The Kissing Booth

A Netflix original movie, it depicts what happens when a female (Elle) and male (Lee) best friend duo has to endure the female of the pair falling for the male’s older and mega-hot high school legend brother (Noah). And what happens when she’s face to face with this long-time crush of hers when she’s co-hosting the kissing booth.

An adorable film that even brings back the high school era legend of Molly Ringwald. Sweet, funny and relatable while giving you that just over the edge feel. Quirky and silly while making you awww away the time as you see the love story develop, change and pull you along the way.

If you want a feel-good chick flick that’ll make you giggle, watch The Kissing Booth. Plus! Part two comes out this summer!



Second, how about something with a bit more action…

Nerve

A wild ride of a flick that shows just how far a game of truth or dare, only without the truth portion, can go when it’s made into a phone app and allows it’s participants an anonymous status.

Vee is that typical mousy high schooler that has her sights more on her future than her present, flanked (in her small group of friends) by the adoring best guy friend (Tommy), hovering mother and outlandish and overshadowing best friend (Sydney).

Upon trying too hard to push Vee into what Sydney thinks is being more fun, Vee decides, on a whim, to join her bestie in being a player instead of a watcher in the high stakes game of Nerve. Only, she soon finds out how high of stakes things will get. You know… because… snitches get stitches!

A def must-see. One I personally saw 5 times in the theater and countless times on disc and digitally. Fun, funny, action packed. Oh, and don’t forget about the Wu-tang Clan lyrics!
