A few days ago, Netflix released a new film telling the crazy story of Ted Bundy and his girlfriend of 6 years, Elizabeth (Liz) Kloepfer. Starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins, the movie goes through their love story and shows how Liz was affected during Ted’s multiple arrests and trials. Zac Efron’s acting was incredible; he was able erase the thoughts of Troy Bolton from my head and show how convincing, intelligent, and insane Ted Bundy was. This movie kept me interested the whole time and I 10/10 recommend.
For the past two weeks, everyone has been talking about the final Avengers movie and scrambling to get tickets before each show sells out. Social media has been full of posts about the movie while hashtags saying #dontspoiltheendgame also became widely popular. Endgame takes place right after the end of the third Avengers movie, Infinity War, but then skips to 5 years later in the beginning of the movie. It is filled with the perfect amount of comedy and action, and it is definitely a film worth seeing. I absolutely love Marvel movies, and I think Endgame is the best one yet, so go get your tickets before it gets spoiled!
I highly recommend seeing this family friendly movie with Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne. It is a heartwarming story about a married couple deciding to foster/adopt three children. It shows the reality of the struggles but also the love of building a family. The kids show a lot of resistance at first, but they grow to love their new parents. There is a good balance of humor and seriousness throughout the movie, so it is not too dorky or sad. I really enjoyed this movie and would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a cute family movie to watch.
Escape Room is a new movie that came out in theaters a couple weeks ago. It is a thriller about six people who sign up to do an escape room to win money, but it turns out the rooms are dangerous and they will die if they don’t escape. Each one of the characters is a lone survivor from a trauma they experienced, and the game knows everything about them. The rooms are designed to mess with them and includes details from their pasts.
I honestly did not like this movie very much. It was very disturbing and weird, and it wasn’t scary enough for me to stay interested. The ending was not very satisfying and it left a lot of things unanswered. The whole plot was kind of ridiculous to me. The details of the movie were well thought out, but I did not like the way it was executed. I love escape rooms but I personally did not enjoy this film.
I watched this movie over Thanksgiving break and it left me thinking for days. This sci-fi movie “Jonathan” is about someone who has single body multi consciousness. There are two brothers living inside of one man, portrayed by Ansel Elgort. One of the brother’s name is Jonathan who is awake from 7am to 7pm, and the other brother, Jon, is awake from 7pm to 7am. They communicate by making videos for the other to watch when they are awake. The movie documents Jonathan’s life and shows the struggles he faced each day but also highlights the love he has for Jon. The brothers have a certain set of rules that they have to follow in order to stay functioning, such as a certain sleep schedule and no girlfriends. However, Jon ends up dating this girl named Elena who brings many complications to the brothers’ routine. The brothers begin to fight and both of their lives start to go downhill throughout the movie.
This movie was very interesting but it was slow at times. I wish it had a little bit of a faster pace and a more exciting ending. The ending was pretty dry in my opinion, but it did leave me thinking about the science behind it and the other things that could’ve happened.
Bohemian Rhapsody is the new movie that shows the epic story of the band Queen and their lead singer Freddie Mercury. It begins with showing how Freddie meets the rest of the band members and then follows their career taking off. The movie highlights the hardships that Queen faced, how the four men became a family, and the details of Freddie Mercury’s life and sexuality. Also, Queen has amazing music that is played and performed throughout the movie that makes you just want to get up and sing along. This was a very powerful movie and I would HIGHLY recommend going to see it in theaters!
This exciting movie came out at the beginning of October and has been a common source of conversation for over a month now. This movie shows a very moving story about a famous male singer (portrayed by Bradley Cooper) who meets a woman in a bar (portrayed by Lady Gaga) with an amazing singing voice. He takes her out and brings her on stage at one of his gigs, where she is discovered and her career takes off. The two fall in love, and the movie follows their life story and shows the ups and downs of relationships and careers.
This is a very well filmed movie with an excellent soundtrack, but it does have a very upsetting ending. I loved the movie up until the last 20 minutes, and the ending left me thinking about the movie for days. This movie was extremely powerful and well written and I would recommend going to see it in theaters while you still can!
