Sierra Burgess is a Loser! (Movie Review)

Hey everyone!

Time for another movie review!

So last night I watched a Netflix classic called: Sierra Burgess is a Loser!

So this movie follows a teenage girl who is in high school and unpopular. The plot of the movie revolves around a popular girl giving Sierra’s number to a boy, making him think it is indeed the popular girl’s number.

Sierra and the boy (Jayme) text back and forth, Jayme all the while thinking that he is texting the popular girl.

I really liked the movie. I thought it had funny parts but also heartfelt points and an overall lovely message.

However, I have a question. During the movie it’s shown that Sierra is smart, funny, very talented, and involved in some school activities. The only reason she’s deemed unpopular is because of her looks. She isn’t deemed attractive enough to her peers and is therefore, shunned.

So I’m wondering if this is an appropriate message to show our younger generation? Yes, everything works out in the end and the girl gets the guy anyway. You should know there’s spoiler alerts by now! However my whole thing is that their still showing that high school (and middle school) kids shun other kids solely on their appearance.

Do you think, as parents or not, that the generation is actually swayed by what they see and that, seeing such a thing in a movie, might convince them (more so than already) that judging a peer on how they look and not their character and personality is ok?

That it’s acceptable, by society’s terms, to judge someone’s worth on what they look like and their talent on how attractive they are?

I would just like everyone else’s feedback and what they think!

In other terms and disregarding what message it could, unintentionally, be sending I thought it was a good movie and I would recommend watching it!

Thank you guys for the support and for your continued reading!

Spectacular Now (Review)

Hey everyone! This is another movie review. I watched a movie on Netflix called the Spectacular Now. At first I thought it was a romantic comedy but after watching it for a while it didn’t actually seem that funny.

There are some very serious life issues and family issues in this movie that I wasn’t expecting when I first started watching this movie.

I also, do not feel that much sympathy for the main character, Sutten. Usually I’m rooting for the main character and hoping that everything works out for them but in this film I felt that, even with his family and character issues, he was selfish and put other people in danger and ruined their lives and their hearts as well. I felt that the amount of suffering he put on other people was unfair and even that he didn’t deserve a happy ending. It’s not particularly clear and whether or not he gets a happy ending but it seems to be leaning toward that and I didn’t think he needed one.

That’s just my opinion, watch the movie and let me know what you think! Thanks everyone!

Penelope (Review)

Hey everyone! I am finally doing the review of Penelope. So this movie is actually from 2006 but I only recently saw it. The first thing I want to say is that it was a great movie.

It definitely had some funny parts and some serious parts as well. I will say the ending is definitely not what I expected. I absolutely love the message that it sent especially for young adults, both male and female.

A short synopsis is that Penelope is a royal teenager who has been cursed to have the face of a pig. She’s trying, with the help of her mother, to find a fellow royal who can look past her appearance and agree to marry her. I love the confidence and self esteem it can instill in someone and help the audience, especially the younger audience, realize it’s not all about looks and appearance.

There’s my review of Penelope, I hope you all enjoyed it! Thank you so much.

 

Long Day (and upcoming things)

Hey everyone!

So today was a very long and tiring day so I will not be posting the second part of that story tonight but I still like to post (or try to post) every day to keep you guys posted (ha posted…see what I did there?) and let you guys know what’s going on because I really do appreciate all the support you guys give me.

So (hopefully) tomorrow night I will be posting the second part of the story and writing a few more parts to schedule to post. I am also going to try to write some other posts like my review of the Penelope movie and some other things to schedule to post while I’m on vacation.

I leave for vacation on Thursday and I will be back around Monday so things SHOULD return to normal after that. I don’t have a set work schedule so things can get a little hectic sometimes especially when (like tonight) I end up working longer than I was scheduled for.

I will also do an update on my tattoo and how it’s healing if anyone is interested in reading about that and I’m thinking about doing another poem or two.

Also if anyone has any reccomendations about where I can submit a poem that’s already posted online, please let me know!

Thank you all and, as always, have a great night!

Love, Crystal

Beauty and the Beast Review (French 2014 Version)

Hey everyone!

So I was just on Netflix and I searched for a Cinderella Story with Hillary Duff because I love that movie and Beauty and the Beast came up but a version I hadn’t seen before. (probably because it’s French) Now as you probably know since I just got a tattoo of a rose that’s supposed to be from Beauty and the Beast, I love that movie so I decided to watch it.As it turns out I think it was dubbed on Netflix to English so luckily I could understand it because I don’t speak French. I was actually shocked how different this version was from the regular version I was so used to seeing. Without giving anything away there’s plunderers, nymphs, lots and lots of roses, a beast (obviously) and some beagles. Overall I actually really really loved this version and definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a new twist on an old classic.

I am sorry this was such a short post but I do think this movie was great and I really don’t want to give anything away. Thanks for reading and if everyone would like, maybe I will give a more detailed review of this movie in the future. Another movie I want to review soon which I just watched yesterday is Penelope. Yes this is an older movie but I hadn’t seen it yet.

Thanks again for all your support!
