Fyre

The movie Fyre is a netflix original and is a documentary about the fyre festival. It revolves around the brains behind the disaster, Billy Mcfarland. He had this great idea to have a music festival on a private island in the Bahamas, and have many famous models promote it to attract customers. The tickets itself were very expensive for the festival, but they also had packages to purchase online. That supposedly included lavish bungalows, great food, and drinks. There was not nearly enough time or money for this to get done. So, Billy just kept taking people’s money even though none of it was ever going to look the way it was described and pictured online. The “lavish bungalows” were actually hurricane matthew tents that people used when their homes were destroyed. People showed up to the festival in udder shock, they couldn’t believe this is what they spent thousands of dollars on. Billy was arrested for fraud and four other charges. This was truly the greatest party that never happened. This documentary was very interesting and I highly recommend to anyone who likes documentaries. I rate this a 8/10.

Bird Box

I recently watched the new movie everyone seems to be talking about “Bird Box”. This film is a netflix original, rated R, and considered a drama/thriller. It stars Sandra Bullock as a single Mom having to look out for her two kids, and keeping them safe from the disease. The disease is caught by looking into someone’s eyes who already has the disease. They will try to manipulate you and say what would make you look. The disease makes you live and see your biggest fear, which ends up making most people harm themselves. So the people who haven’t gotten the disease yet wear blindfolds outside to stay safe. The movie is very interesting, but can be dull at some points. I believe it was to long. I rate this movie a 7/10.

Second Act

Over the Christmas break I went to the movie theater and saw “Second Act”. This movie is PG-13 and is considered a romance/comedy. It stars Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini. It’s about how Jenifer Lopez doesn’t get a promotion at a grocery, so Leah Remini’s son makes a fake resume and applies her at a skin care company. She had never been to college and the resume said she went to Harvard, so of course she was hired. Lopez’s boyfriend breaks up with her because they don’t want the same thing.  Throughout the whole movie she keeps this secret to herself. Then she joins in a head to head competition with Vanessa Hudgens. To see who can make the better skin care. At the award ceremony Jennifer Lopez confesses the truth and leaves the company. She starts her own business, which is a delivery grocery service. Her boyfriend and her make up and plan to get married! Overall, this movie was very cheesy and dull at many points in the movie, so I rate it a 5.5/10. Not my kind of movie.
