A ‘Tangled’ Appreciation Post

I. Love. Tangled! My love for this movie was rekindled when I realized it was the tenth anniversary this week (it’s been out for ten years?!) and so my sister and I decided to watch it (mutually, it’s our favorite Disney princess movie next to Moana.) It’s just so good!

I remember when I watched it for the first time ten (or was it nine?) years ago. It was Christmas night, my family and I had decided to spend the holiday in an Embassy Suites in a nearby city of ours just for fun, my sister and I got our very first Barbie dolls (my sister’s was an African-American Ballerina Barbie and I had an African-American cool-girl Barbie), and as we sat eating a kids’ meal (I remember having pizza) we watched Tangled for the first time.

My Review of ‘Project Power’

Sometimes I just don’t get it. Project Power, a Netflix original film starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph-Gordon Levitt, is actually a really good streaming service movie but it’s barely gotten any shoutouts or praise.

Imagine Taken meets Beats meets a rated-R DC Comics level superhero story. That’s Project Power. It could’ve been corny but it wasn’t. Everything made sense, the characters were likable, and even though the movie ended predictably it was pretty darn enjoyable. I found myself laughing quite a few times but most of the time I was stunned into silence by the film’s rapid-pacing and dire circumstances.

No, Project Power is not the best movie I’ve ever seen but it’s a pretty great Netflix movie. I’ll give it 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. If you’re bored and at home with a Netflix subscription check this one out. I have a feeling you might like it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
