I’ve watched more than ten movies, but these were the ones I decided to include. I’ve gotten back into writing a little bit and coloring too. Frankly, I’m trying to just do things to keep busy because I’m getting tired after getting enough sleep. I blame it on my autoimmune thing I’m dealing with and can’t wait for tomorrow because hopefully I’ll be able to start a new week in many ways.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (2022) is the continuation of Sonic and his sidekick Tails as they do their best to defeat Dr. Robotnik. Idris Elba as Knuckles is a great addition to the cast. Jim Carrey as the evil Robotnik is some of the best casting ever. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone, whether gamers or not, because it’s great entertainment.
Labor Day (2013) is where what’s on the outside isn’t what’s on the inside or don’t judge a book by what the cover looks like. This reminds me of stories where the supposed bad guy isn’t really all that bad and an unconventional relationship where everyone learns something by the end of it. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a homemade baked pie.
The Big Year (2011) is about bird watch, which a lot of people don’t understand the attraction and excitement of it. While it has a good cast, the story has a good message and that is don’t put career before your family unless you’re willing to lose it. I recommend this movie to anyone who is a bird enthusiast and likes pretty colors.
Uncharted (2022) is a bona fide adventure movie where you’re not sure who the good or bad guys are (for those like me who know nothing about the game or story). I truly liked this movie not only for the action but non-Hollywood ending. I highly recommend this movie to anyone likes mystery and a good journey.
The Lost City (2022) is a story that deals with the reality and fantasy of romance. Sandra Bullock and Tatum Channing are hilarious. There’s nothing funnier than two characters trying to survive being lost in a jungle (unless it’s happening in real life). I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to laugh from deep within their stomach.
Walk of Shame (2014) is a ridiculous movie, but it has enough funny scenes to make it worthwhile to finish. The story does have a good message at the end. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a typical comedy movie with a few laughs.
Mapplethorpe (2019) is a biopic about photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. It chronicles the relationship between Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe and his evolution of Mapplethorpe as an artist. I would recommend this to anyone who isn’t afraid to see male genitalia in an artistic way and already knows the story of Mapplethorpe.
Top Gun: Maverick (2022) is one where I was pleasantly surprised how good it was including the story and cinematography. The flying scenes were so great because of how it was shot in terms of angles. I loved the way they incorporated Val Kilmer’s character of Iceman into the story. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see a good follow up to the 1986 original movie.
Sex Ed (2014) is an interesting movie in that while the story isn’t really complex or challenging, this is a coming-of-age story for a young teacher. While it does have commentary on the pros and cons of sex education (on which side you’re on), the parts of lewd behavior and language detracts from it. I’d recommend this movie to anyone who wants background noise while doing other things like washing the dishes.
Corky Romano (2001) if another stupid movie where the story is ridiculous. Some of the humor falls flat and the humor wasn’t even humorous back then when it was made. Chris Kattan wasn’t one of the funnier SNL cast over the years, but he’s funny enough. I’d recommend this movie to anyone who is a Kattan loyalist or likes a kooky mafia type movie.
