One of the most anticipated movies of the year has finally been released. Just from the trailer, to the buzz from critics and audiences, and of course the plot has everyone intrigued with what is so special about Sorry to Bother You. Let’s not forget that it stars one of the best up and coming actors in the game right now and that’s Lakeith Stanfield. Stanfield has been blowing up with is performances in last year’s Get Out and while not critically acclaimed movie, his performance in Netflix’s Death Note was great. How did his performance and this latest film from Director Boots Riley turn out to be?
I saw two new comedies over the past weekend and both films happened to give the opposite effect that I was expecting when going in. While one was underwhelming considering the cast is one of the best ensembles I have seen in a while, the other I think will be one of underrated movies of 2018. Can you guess which is which? People watch and view movies for their own reasons and what they want to pull from it. I do my best to go into each film with an open mind and remember that while my opinion is being presented for everyone to see doesn’t make it the only opinion nor do I represent the opinion of others. This review will be a true testament to how I review movies from an entertainment value perspective.

Playing a little catch up on here, I wanted to combine a few movies I have seen in the past couple of weeks and keep the momentum going on my entertainment scale for critiquing movies. I have heard mix reviews of all three titles I plan to write about in this post and that is Life of the Party, Solo, and Tully. As I saw each film I was already with expectations of what I will see and with one of them a twist. Sometimes that can change how you watch a film and also the final verdict. So how did these movies pan out?
Due to an outdoor screening of the film, I decided to review this 90’s fun flick about one of the best Pop girl groups ever, The Spice Girls. Join me and 3 other friends as we give ourselves our own “spice” names, review the film, talk about our outdoor screening experience, and just laugh and laugh on how Posh Spice is the funniest one in the bunch.
We also give our 3 min or less reviews on Life of the Party, Tully, and Upgrade. We give our initial thoughts to trailers Bohemian Rhapsody and Skyscrapers.
Give us a listen and thank you for following the blog and podcast. Comment below your spice name and what you think about the film if you saw Spice World.
Thanks as always for listening

Even though the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy has come and pass, we still can’t escape it. The book has managed to creep up on us when we least expected. Bill Holderman’s directorial debut managed to remind us of the erotic guilty pleasure in the latest rom-com Book Club. Written by Holderman along with Erin Simms gives us a movie you have seen many times before with a great and well-known cast telling the story that even in the world of filmmaking and acting, age is only a number.
Diane Keaton (Something’s Gotta Give), along with wonderful actresses Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie), Candice Bergen (TV’s Murphy Brown, Miss Congeniality), and Mary Steenburgen (TV’s Last Man on Earth) are four best friends who meet for a monthly book club and have their lives changed once the book of the month is “50 Shades of Grey”.
Welcome back movie geeks. I am sure you have seen or read so many entries, reviews, tweets, post regarding this movie and it’s only Day 1, well Day 1 ½ if you were like me and saw this movie Thursday night. So to try and separate myself from other articles, this review is from an entertainment perspective from the point of view of an average movie goer. Spoiler Free.
If you were me, you know that you have went through 18 movies in 10 yrs old for this moment that it all comes together. Literally, almost all the superheroes we met in so far appeared in the film to band together and take down the biggest villain they have all faced and that is Thanos. The latest adversary has been hinted throughout the 3 Phases we have had introducing each member of the Avengers and Thanos’s plan to wipe away the universe once he collects 6 infinity stones. So the question I want to address is does this movie live up to the hype?
