TRAVEL TO MOVIES: I FEEL PRETTY

Directors: Marc Silverstein , Abby Kohn
Cast: Amy Schumer , Michelle Williams , Emily Ratajkowski , Adrian Martinez , Busy Philipps , Tom Hopper , Rory Scovel , Aidy Bryant , Lauren Hutton , Naomi Campbell , Sasheer Zamata
Plot: Renee Barrett, an woman who struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy on a daily basis wakes from a fall believing she is suddenly the most beautiful and capable woman in the world despite looking the same she has always looked. With this newfound confidence, she is empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly, but what will happen when she realizes her appearance never changed?


My Movie Review: The movie is light self serving comedy that will keep you laugh in silliness:) I Feel Pretty is quite inspiring body-image satire that feels good to witness despite the flaws or negative prospective in beauty- this is not my kind of movie but it's new welcoming experience. To be honest it's a superficial world out there it's hard to be fat nowadays not only for women but for men too- you can get motivated losing the weight in gym workout it advertise soul cycle. But the real message is how you see yourself or presented to the world can affect how people will treat you so embrace your own uniqueness or booze your confidence in doing few change! Amy Schumer is revolutionary in some way as she affect we see chick flick as a learning tool in bettering yourself- this is my first time seeing her in the big screen! and it's satisfying great job:)

Movie News: The comedian made her film debut in 2015’s hit “Trainwreck.” The incisive rom-com, written by Schumer and directed by Judd Apatow, bowed with $30 million and went on to earn $110 million. Her next leading role, last year’s “Snatched,” opened with $19 million. Amy Schumer is undeniably funny, why have her two latest films underperformed? The comedian’s third starring vehicle “I Feel Pretty,” written and directed by Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn, launched to a soft $16 million last weekend. It’s not a disaster, but it does represent Schumer’s lowest opening for a film yet. “I Feel Pretty” has also struggled critically, earning a 33% rating on Rotten Tomatoes with 31% average audience score. It has inspired a number of hot takes for its muddled message of body acceptance. Schumer has since addressed criticism, saying the film was unfairly judge based in the trailer and not the movie’s theme of self empowerment!

TRAVEL TO MOVIES: LOVE, SIMON

Director: Greg Berlati
Cast: Nick Robinson , Katherine Langford , Alexandra Shipp , Tony Hale , Jorge Lendeborg Jr. Keiynan Lonsdale , Miles Heizer , Jennifer Garner , Josh Duhamel , Logan Miller , Joey Pollari
Plot: Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it's a little more complicated and has two problems. Firstly, He hasn't told his family or friends that he's gay. Secondly, he has fallen for one of his classmates and doesn't know the identity of his anonymous crush online. Resolving both of issue proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing:)


My Movie Review: The movie is a breeze it's like sipping coconut in a beach! go sit and relax:) Love Simon is sweet and tender- lighthearted high school coming of age tale that's relatable in some level whatever gender orientation you have filled with humor in roller coaster of emotions maybe it's a sensitive subject for some but this one gentle and carefree- fun at the same time!! Nick Robinson is the center of the universe- finding someone gave him courage to find himself together with his squad most got the best role in their career were each show their individuality. Katherine Langford is one actor to look for her presence haunt felt like seeing parallel scenes in 13 Reasons Why at some point or I'm just in bubble cause my friend talking while watching:)
My Favorite Lines: "My name’s Simon, I’m just like you. For the most part my life is totally normal. My dad is the annoyingly handsome quarterback who married the hot valedictorian. I have a sister I actually like, not that I’d ever tell her and there’s my friends. Two of them I’ve known pretty much the beginning of time or at least kindergarten. One of them just met months ago, but it feels like I’ve known her forever. We do everything friends do, we drink way too much iced coffee, we watch bad ‘90s movies and hangout at Waffle House dreaming of college and gorging on carbs. I said I’m just like you. I have a totally perfectly normal life except I have one huge-ass secret. Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck on a ferris wheel. One minute I’m on top of the world, then the next I’m at rock-bottom. I’ve been thinking about why I haven’t come out. Maybe part of me wants to hold onto who’ve I’ve always been, just a little longer. No matter what, who you are to the world is pretty terrifying because what if the world doesn’t like you? P.S It doesn’t seem fair that only gay people have to come out." Why is that straight a default?!

My Personal Experience: I went to Punggol Mall Waterway Point this year April 18, 2018, together with my sister.

TRAVEL TO MOVIES: BLOCKERS

Director: Kay Cannon
Cast: John Cena , Leslie Mann , Ike Barinholtz , Kathryn Newton , Gary Cole , Colton Dunn , Graham Phillips , Hannibal Buress , Ramona Young , Gideon Adlon , Geraldine Viswanathan , Jake Picking , Sarayu Blue , Miles Robbins , Rhoda Griffis , Jimmy Bellinger , BreeAnna Marie
Plot: Julie, Kayla and Sam are three high school seniors who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. Lisa, Mitchell and Hunter are three overprotective parents who flip out when they find out about their daughters' plans. They soon join forces for a wild and chaotic quest to stop the girls from sealing the deal -- no matter what the cost.


My Movie Review: The movie is weird and gross sexy comedy in extent to it's raunchy humor! Blockers is vulgar too much information and you may want to cover your ears language please to young teenage girls in the movie didn't expect that coming in their mouth rub the wrong way! You know what your getting when parents got involved in your business it get messy awkward putting you in uncomfortable position becoming a family affair you don't want but it's kinda fun:) Three parents try to stop their teens sexed-up prom-night plan turn a typical gross-out comedy into something special- for the critics it hits a high note but the audience score felt unsatisfied:( In the end of the day there are positive messages about parent-child trust and letting young adults make choices for themselves you allow them to make mistakes but hoping they do right.

Movie News: Blockers could have gone horribly wrong. The premise of parents trying to stop their teenage daughters from having sex could have been patriarchal and antiquated. Instead, in the hands of director Kay Cannon, Blockers ends up as what will likely be one of the best comedies of 2018. While we expect seasoned comic actors like Mann and Barinholtz to shine, there isn’t a weak link in the cast. Cena is an absolute gift, combining his physicality with an aw-shucks gentility that’s totally winsome. None of the comic situations should be spoiled, but it’s also a movie that’s tough to spoil because even if you know the jokes, you can feel all the throwaway lines and gags that are worth revisiting. The movie is also commendable for rarely being preachy it’s movie about parents how it’s hard to let your kids go out without supervision.

TRAVEL TO MOVIES: MARVEL'S AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

Director: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Cast: Robert Downey Jr. , Chris Evans , Chris Hemsworth , Chris Pratt , Scarlett Johansson ,  Chadwick Boseman , Benedict Cumberbatch , Mark Ruffalo , Paul Bettany , Elizabeth Olsen , Jeremy Renner , Tom Holland , Sebastian Stan , Zoe Saldana , Tom Hiddleston , Josh Brolin , Anthony Mackie , Don Cheadle , Karen Gillan , Dave Bautista , Benicio Del Toro , Brie Larson , Bradley Cooper , Vin Diesel , Paul Rudd , Idris Elba , Tom Vaughan-Lawlor , Letitia Wright , Cobie Smulders , Benedict Wong , Danai Gurira , Pom Klementieff , Isabella Amara , Stan Lee
Plot: Two years after the Avengers were torn apart during the events of Captain America: Civil War, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet-- the evil Thanos. He arrives on Earth to collect the Infinity Stones for a gauntlet that will allow him to bend reality to his will. The Avengers must join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop Thanos before his onslaught of destruction puts end to half the universe!!


My Movie Review: The movie is epic beyond belief- changing the rules and setting the trends! Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of all event happened in Marvel's Cinematic Universe shocking and emotional the superheroes went through this time shifting things into newer path! Let's talk about the infinity stones: How Thanos got the purple)- power stone- in the first place? No idea I should have paid attention more in seeing Thor Asgard or Guardians Of The Galaxy:( Most of the stones come in their universe like the blue)- space stone- the one Loki was holding or Aerther red)- reality stone- which belongs to The Collector but I thought it was in Gamora's knife until Thanos went to planet Vormir with Gamora to sacrifice get it the orange)- soul stone! Doctor Strange made a huge mistake in saving Iron Man when he hands over the green)- time stone if can bring back time just like Thanos did when the yellow)- mind stone to Vision's head!
My Favorite Character: Thanos (The Mad Titan)

Thanos, referred to as the Dark Lord by his most loyal underlings and the Mad Titan by the galactic community, is a powerful Titan warlord who rules over a distant region of space and commands two massive armies, known as the Chitauri and the Outriders, and a small group of followers known as the Black Order. His own main objective was to bring stability from the universe, he believed its massive population would inevitably use up the universe's resources and condemn it. However, his methodology to succeed was warped; through use of the ancient Infinity Stones, he intended to harness their power to exterminate half of all life in the universe. He spent many years hunting down the stones and his desire to achieve his goal is what led him to forge deals with Loki and Ronan the Accuser in their respective campaigns against Earth and Xandar, as seen in his promising to aid them exchange for an Infinity Stone!!
