There are those movies that come out and it seems like it’s going to be really bad and instead the film is a sleeper hit. Free Guy is one of those films.
I won’t elaborate on the plot because that’s part of the brilliance of this new story but if you’re a gamer you’re going to really like this movie. I found myself guffawing quite a bit throughout the film and the end is totally wild and hilarious. There’s a reason why this movie got a sequel.
I’m giving it 91 or of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Well, Harry Potter fans, this has been quite the year of celebration. Twenty years ago a movie entered theaters that changed the world. It was called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and it catapulted a franchise into being thanks to quite a huge dose of magic.
As fans all over the world celebrate the momentous occasion I have been included in the celebration in an awesome way.
Thanks to Warner Bros. I got this awesome box filled with iconic Harry Potter goodies like Bertie’s Bott’s Every Flavor Beans (yes, they really do have earwax and booger-flavored beans, among plenty of other gag-inducing flavors like vomit, sausage, and even soap!) but that’s kind of the magic. It really transports you to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And receiving my Hufflepuff scarf (yes, I am a proud Hufflepuff) was probably one of the best things I’ve ever gotten from a gift box like this.
I proudly own a wand I got from Universal Studios about a decade ago and now I have my Hufflepuff scarf! How awesome is that?!
What did I do for Thanksgiving? I started my morning by watching/thoroughly enjoying the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade while snacking on M&M’s as the Thanksgiving food cooked for lunchtime. When the National Dog Show began food was ready and oh was it delicious. Once my Thanksgiving food was finished I started getting ready to go to the movies to watch Disney’s 60th animated film, Encanto. And I had a fun time.
Encanto, like every Disney movie, is vibrant with an emotionally-driven story and a batch of likable songs. Unfortunately, this was not the film I expected.
Lin-Manuel Miranda has made his directorial debut with the newest Netflix Original Film, tick, tick…BOOM!, starring Andrew Garfield as iconic Broadway genius, Jonathan Larson, the man who created Rent. It’s a story about him, his friends, and how he eventually becomes the genius the world heralds him to be.
I was actually rather impressed with the film which sucked me in thanks to its surprisingly funny humorous moments as it well as its standout musical numbers that actually felt creative and, at times, mesmerizing.
My favorite musical numbers were “No More” and “Sunday” which easily stood out among the pack with Miranda’s brilliant direction. He really injected life into this movie when it could’ve easily could’ve bored me to tears.
Will Andrew Garfield get an Oscar nomination for his role as Jonathan Larson? Yes. Will he win? I definitely don’t think so. But he definitely surprised me with his shockingly good singing voice.
Is tick, tick…BOOM! an instant classic? No, it definitely isn’t. But it definitely is a good movie and the best new musical I’ve seen in a while.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
