Movies I watched recently

Good afternoon everyone!

If you’re American, I hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving. If you’re not American, I hope you’re having a wonderful day.

I’ve been sick at home for three days so I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube. There’s only so many videos you can watch before you die of boredom so I’ve been watching a few movies, even though I don’t really feel like it. I thought I might share the last five movies I’ve watched because one can always use movie suggestions, right?

A Star is Born

I had been looking forward to watching this one since I watched the trailer, a couple of months ago. I went to the cinema as soon as I had the chance and it was wonderful. It’s a beautiful film and I’m rooting for it to win a few Academy Awards. Lady Gaga’s performance is flawless and the same can be said for Bradley Cooper’s acting, singing (who knew?!) and directing. Their chemistry is out of this world. I cried my eyes out too because there’s so much to feel. It’s now a favorite.

Loved: The soundtrack. Rui and I listen to it in the car and I fall asleep to it often.

Liked: Lady Gaga looks beautiful with no makeup.

Didn’t like: The ending.

Crazy Rich Asians

I’m glad I didn’t go to the movies to watch this one because I didn’t like it as much as I was expecting. It’s fun and light but not a “spending money to go see it” movie. Is this a weird criteria?

Loved: A whole Asian cast

Liked: Their accent

Didn’t like: The crazy over the top rich people spending kind of bothers me

Stepmom

I’ve been in a 90’s movie kick lately and this one has been on my list for a while. I love movies about moms because I feel inspired by them. I really liked this one, despite the fact that you can spot very obvious 90’s movie cliches when it comes to plot and cinematography.

Loved: Mom love

Liked: Younger Susan Sarandon, Julia Roberts and Jena Malone

Didn’t like: The ending

Baby Boom

Once again, moms. The 80’s. I love that this movie is fun while dealing with serious issues such as adoption, women’s careers, and the idea of “having it all”.

Loved: J.C. bonding with baby Elizabeth

Liked: 80’s work fashion

Didn’t like: How they portray the corporate world as being the wrong place for a mother

Green Card

I didn’t know anything about this movie until I actually saw it. I love Gerard Depardieu and his character. It’s a romantic comedy about two very different people that fall in love, after getting married.

Loved: Gerard Depardieu’s accent

Liked: The main female character’s name – Brontë

Didn’t like: The ending

So, yeah. This is it. Have you watched any of this films? Any opinions you’d like to share?

I’m also interested in what you’ve been watching and accepting suggestions.

Hugs, Chey.

      Oh, you have to. It’s so good. So many feelings. Bradley Cooper learned to play the guitar to play in the film so he is actually playing and singing. He’s very good to. Their performances are just wonderful. They’re both extremely talented and I really hope they sing at the Oscars 😊
