Chris Brown: Welcome to my life (Review)

Director; Andrew Sandler
1h 20 minutes
Documentary/Music
Streaming on Netflix.

Not too shabby, for a documentary surrounding a celebrity it wasn’t that bad to be honest.
Usually, I can’t stand them because most times they open up with the crowd chanting the artist name while you hear news about them popping up in a flash, making it look epic and legendary. Here, it actually had some soul, you get a glimpse into his most difficult times during his career and how he handled it all when it felt like his life was falling apart thanks to his mistakes and poor decisions.

He talks about his pre-fame days, past, relationships, and you hear his side of the story of what happened with Rihanna.
I actually found it moving, I don’t know if he’s a good actor and is just pulling the right strings, but I felt bad for him, and everything that happened; all the hate he got at one point, him talking about his depressions, suicidal thoughts, and him being at his lowest.
We all face difficulties, but behind closed doors, he had to face it all while having the entire globe watching his every move and constantly judging every breath of air he ever inhaled.
Being at one end of a microscope can’t be easy no matter the situation, and none of us are God or Saints to be judging him or say what he deserves and doesn’t. It ain’t in our powers, and if someone is willing to admit his wrongs, shouldn’t they be entitled to be forgiven? They deserve redemption as much as the next person.

I’ve always enjoyed his music, and nothing will ever stop me from listening to it. If I like the song, sound, and lyrics, I don’t care who sings it, I won’t ever judge someone’s work of art based on the person they are or were. It is easy to judge when you’re not the one being the target, that says nothing about them but more about you.

If you already formed some sort of image about this man, then obviously it’s nothing for you to check out, if you’re a fan then it’s a must, or like me who enjoys his music, style, and creativity then you should also spend a little bit over an hour on him. 4.7/10


Real Rob (Review)

Director; Rob Schneider
Comedy / ”Reality”
30 minutes
Out on Netflix.

Not too shabby, I actually enjoyed it despite the negative reviews and comments I found online, maybe being a fan of his could be the main reason why I liked it, had a fun time watching it, I don’t know, but I found it to be entertaining enough to continue watching it and write about it.

It’s a semi reality show in a way, not like your typical reality show nor like your typical average tv show.
It has a thin line and balance between a comedy show like any other yet with a twist, giving you that small dash of reality at the same time due to the actors having their real names, and it revolves around the actor Rob Schneider’s real life living in Hollywood.

If you have bad humor like I tend to have and laugh at silly almost stupid lines, then this is for you. You’ll have very few laugh out loud moments, but it’ll be worth it. 5/10


Okja (Review)

Director; Joon-ho Bong
Adventure/Drama
1h 58 minutes
Out on Netflix!

Powerful, grasping, and beautiful are just a few words to describe Okja, a soul warming script about a girl and her super pig. It’s bold, and it will crawl underneath your skin, into your heart, and stay there. It will even give you a whole new outlook on the livestock and meat industry.

The movie is an inspiration to the human population worldwide, and its unique boldness might even turn you vegan. It will open up your eyes to not only how farm animals are being treated, but also how much life these creatures possess.
They are living, breathing, and emotional beings that deserve to be alive, and not slaughter simply for pleasuring the human taste bud.

To bring life into existence for the sole purpose of killing them sounds like an act of psychopathy, yet it’s called ”farming.” The concept is absurd and cruel.
Animals are beautiful creatures with feelings, depth, and heart. Just because you might not understand their language does not mean you should accept the cruelty that is caused to these innocent lives.
By eating meat, you are contributing to leveling 80% of Amazonian rain forest, wasting of 15 trillion gallons of water, and killing 59 billion animals each year.
Farmers are responsible for 53% of water pollution incidents, by going vegan you’ll be saving the environment, it’ll be less water, fewer forests and landmarks getting torn down to create agricultural farms that are killing these innocent and voiceless beings.
Meat industries and farms are causing global warming, they’re the reasons to the Amazon and rain forests being destroyed, animals becoming extinct, and also damaging our oceans.

Strongly recommended, and though I hated the character that Jake Gyllenhaal portrayed, he was absolutely brilliant and phenomenal.  Kudos to the entire cast and crew for delivering this. 7.4/10


Chris D’Elia: Man on Fire (Review)

Director; Bill D’Elia
Writer; Chris D’Elia
Standup comedy
1h 5 minutes
Now streaming on Netflix.

Chris D’Elia oozes charm and charisma, whether it is on a tv show such as Whitney, where he literally outshined everyone, or on stage performing.
The voices, the expressions, the body language, everything blends together into one entertaining cocktail of pure humor.
He’ll have you smile, laugh, and agreeing with him on certain statements he has regarding marriage and children. Everything he said about people at the gym, birthday parties, he’s absolutley right!
The man is simply a pure delight to watch, especially now when the spotlight is on him alone during his second Netflix special.

Chris D’Elia: Man On Fire, definitely better than his first.
The man had me gasping for air as I cracked up laughing at what he was sharing with the audience and viewers, reminding me of Dane Cook and his days as a stand-up comedian due to his charm, personality, and being sort of raw. Loved it!

D’Elia owns the stage this time, he shines and will be the beam of light in a darkened room.
I look forward to seeing his future projects, especially more Netflix specials because he was born to deliver joy and be on stage.
What can I say? I found it hilarious, maybe it’s just my humor, but I enjoy dumb stuff, silliness, and he delivered exactly that! 8/10

I’d love to see him live, so hopefully a tour is in his agenda and he better add Sweden – Stockholm to the list.

What the Health

What The Health, is a brilliant, sharp, eye-opening, and mind-blowing documentary about the truth behind animal products and dairy.
When will people realize that by consuming it you’re guiding your body through the path toward a slow death?
Research and studies show the damages this diet is causing the human health, diseases such as diabetes and cancer cards will be dealt if people don’t start changing their lifestyles and the way they eat.
Industries, government, pharmaceutical, and health organizations do not want you to get well, they don’t make anything by you being healthy and not needing them. A clean diet doesn’t mean organic MEAT OR CHICKEN.
95% of animal meat products contain fecal contamination and filled with infections, there’s NOTHING clean about it.
I’m getting sick of fitness/Insta models recommending it as part of a healthy lifestyle. STOP encouraging people to get ill by posting bs about chicken breast or meat. Open a book, watch a documentary, or go to a lecture rather than posting selfies at the gym!
You want your protein to come from plants because plant-based protein has a much more beneficial effect on our physiology.
Kip, and to everyone involved, thank you for delivering this, it was just as phenomenal as Cowspiracy! 10/10

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (Review)

mv5bodm1otk4mdy2m15bml5banbnxkftztgwotewnzczmdi-_v1_sy1000_cr006741000_al_Writer; Amy Sherman-Palladino
Comedy/Drama
Mini series
On Netflix!

My heart is shattered, all over the floor… what the fudge happened?
Gilmore Girls was one of my favorites when growing up, I remember it as if it were yesterday. I would waltz right through the door, dropping my bag filled with homework by the hall, and get comfortable while waiting for an episode to start.
It was my after-school routine, and nothing brought me that warm-fuzzy feeling on the inside as Gilmore Girls did. It was one of those shows that you maybe didn’t laugh out loud to through an entire episode, or maybe you did. The drama wasn’t over the top, no massive cliffhangers that left you on the edge, yet, it was entertaining and cozy. Gilmore Girls was cozy, and so, when I found out they were coming back, oh boy, it was one of the greatest news, and I couldn’t wait to feel that warm cozy feeling again… that is, until I watched an episode, and my brain went into hibernation for an hour and a half.

As the title, ”A year in the life,” the mini-series is split into four seasons.
In season 1 – Winter, we are once again being greeted with not only the charming town of Stars Hollow but also with our lovable characters that we remember so well.
We welcome back the Gilmore trio, Emily, Lorelai, and Rory. Sadly, one great character that was dearly missed was Rory’s grandfather Richard Gilmore. Played the late Edward Herrmann, who passed away in 2014.

Now, back to the shattering of my heart. Let’s start off with the show in general; it seemed like it was more of a play set on stage than anything else.
The way they moved around, acted, and talked was painful to watch. It also seemed as if they for some unknown reason had forgotten how to properly act.
The script was one of the dullest ones ever, the lines were just as dry as the Zahara dessert, and on each attempted jokes, I swear I heard crickets in the background.
The storyline was just as boring, I was strongly forcing myself to continue finishing it, thinking, and deeply praying that maybe by some miraculous reason, it would take speed, and become better… it didn’t.

I have no idea what happened, the idea was there, and I was thrilled that they were back, but this was not only a disappointment to all Gilmore Girls around the globe but also an insult to the Gilmore girls show back in the day. 2/10
If you, like myself were a fan of the show, I suggest you stay away from this and keep treasured the good old times of Gilmore Girls, and leave it at that.
