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.
Over the weekend I went to the movie theater and saw “The Hate U Give”. This movie is rated PG-13 and considered a drama/thriller movie. This movie faces real life harsh topics head on and sets a great message. This movie is set around the Black Lives Matter movement. A teenage girl named Starr and her friend Khalil, the driver, got pulled over by a white cop. Khalil stepped out of the car and was shot by the officer. The whole movie was set around Starr and how she stands up for Khalil. She was the only witness and felt like she had a voice. This movie was very well produced and very well thought out. I rate this movie 8/10.
