Incredibles 2
(2018)

Not as good as the first one but I still absolutely loved it.
I saw this in theaters with my ex boyfriend and sister back in 2018 and loved it. And I just rewatched it again and I still love it. Obviously the first one had more conflict in it but the second one has a good one too. Not as good as Syndrome, but Screenslaver was decent. I also really loved getting to see Jack Jack's powers in action too. Overall if you adore the first one, check it out. Unless if you don't like sequels. The first movie I give a 9 out of 10. The second one I give an 8 out of 10.

Respect
(2021)

I loved it.
While I don't know much about Aretha Franklin but I love singers from the 60s and 70s, this was a great movie talking about her life. Jennifer Hudson KILLED this role. And I'm not gonna lie, a few of the scenes in the movie made me cry. Like the scenes where her mother sings Amazing Grace to her and the ending where Aretha sings it too. And Hudson also did amazing on the singing too. Her singing and acting never fails to disappoint me, and yes, I think her singing was also great in the really terrible Cats movie she was in 2 years ago as well. But if you really love movies based on true stories or any movie about old time singers and/or actors, check it out. I give Respect an 8.5 out of 10.

Black Widow
(2021)

I actually loved this movie.
Tbh I am more of a fan of the heroes' own films instead of all the heroes together in one film. Scarlett was great in this film and so was everyone else. I loved hearing her story and a few scenes got me emotional. The only thing I didn't like was the last battle but everything else I really enjoyed. 7 out of 10.

iCarly
(2021)

Not as good as the original but still very funny and good.
I have loved iCarly ever since I was 6 or 7 and I was sad when it ended, but when I heard they were doing a reboot I was like "Yes!" Because I seriously missed that show so much. I won't lie and say it is in a way different compared to the show before, but I still enjoy it. There were some new characters and one character from the original doesn't come back on the show,but she is at least mentioned every so often. Carly is still the same person with the bubbly personality and loves to do the video making, Freddie still helps out, and Spencer is still the silly and dumb guy who can nonstop make you laugh. If you love the original iCarly watch this if you can. I really love it a lot and it brings back so many good memories for me.

iCarly: iMeet Fred
(2009)
Episode 10, Season 2

This episode introduced me to iCarly and tbh I am happy it did.
Ok yes, Fred is annoying I know but I was 6 or 7 back then and it was the most exciting thing for me back then. Overall, this episode is decent. Maybe not the best iCarly episode but I am 20 now and I am still happy I became a fan of iCarly because of this one particular episode.

Sling Blade
(1996)

One of the best films of all time
Billy Bob Thornton did amazing directing and acting in this film. For a small budget film, this is an amazing film. This is without a doubt in my top 5 or top 10 favorite movies of all time. It's about a guy named Karl who gets out of a mental hospital after killing his mother a few years back due to something haope to him (and I'm not giving away what that is) and he befriends a young boy who helps him out. It is also Thornton's best film in my opinion. It is totally worth watching. 9 out of 10.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie
(1998)

It's Okay But There Are A Lot Of Problems With This Movie
The problems in this movie is that a few things in the movie don't make sense, the songs are pretty boring other than the typical Rudolph song and the song with Rudolph and Zoey, the animation isn't great because some of the lip syncing isn't 100 percent right, and the characters are barely memorable. Stormella isn't a very good villain. Slyly and Leonard aren't very good sidekicks and the worst character in my opinion is Arrow, son if Rudolph's uncle Cupid. I get the story is that Rudolph gets made fun of but my God, Arrow is such an a-hole here. The only characters I did like was Zoey and Santa. And I know it isn't the Rankin and Bass version,but that version is WAY better. I'm okay with kids seeing this movie, but I would prefer you to show the 1964 film instead. And personally I don't think adults will enjoy this much unless if you have kids and wanna show them something christmassy.

The only positives I have for this movie is Wonderful Christmastime plays in a few moments, and the Rudolph song was good, and a few of the actors can sing. However, the only actors who cannot sing is Eric Idle (if you saw Secret Of NIMH 2, you would agree with me) and Whoopi Goldberg cannot sing either. And Blitzen and Mitzi were good to Rudolph and so was Zoey, Santa and another character who is Prancer's wife.

So overall is this movie good? Not really for adults, but for kids it may be. I remember having the VCR of this movie when I was a kid and watching it when I was 9 or 10 and finding it decent and my sister loved it in preschool as well. But for adults, you guys may find it boring as I do now as a 20 year old woman, unless if you have kids. Overall, I would probably stick with the Rankin and Bass version. I give this movie a 4 out of 10.

The Omen
(1976)

My favorite horror movie of all time.
I first watched this film when I was 10 and I didn't fully get it but I thought it was good so I rewatched it in 8th grade and loved it. I am now almost 20 and I am no horror movie fan, but this is my favorite horror movie of all time. All the actors did really good in this movie and the characters were really good too, even the villain of this movie Ms. Baylock (RIP Billie Whitelaw) was awesome. The premise of this movie was really good too. I won't give away many spoilers but the fact that these parents adopt a kid and don't realize he is the son of Satan was really interesting to me ever since I was a kid. If you love horror movies, check it out. It is so worth seeing. A+ in my book.

Smosh
(2005)

Smosh Was Awesome When I Started Watching Them. Unfortunately, Not Anymore.
Back story: when I was 10 in 2011, my older sister showed me the Happy Cow video Ian and Anthony did and I loved it so much and became addicted to Smosh...until early 2015. They went a bit downhill in 2014 but they still had Ian and Anthony and random actors. But in 2015 they chose buttload of "actors" who were on their channel on a regular basis and were not funny in the slightest! I am sure they are good people in real life, but as actors on smosh, they are just not as humorous as Ian and Anthony themselves. Once Anthony left Smosh, Smosh was a dead channel to me. However, I do enjoy Anthony's channel today. If you want something involved with Ian and Anthony in Smosh, watch their content from 2005-2014, or watch Anthony's channel. The REAL Smosh was only Ian and Anthony and a few other actors who barely appeared, like the Food Battle guy and Ian's mom.

The United States vs. Billie Holiday
(2021)

Doesn't Even Feel Like A Hulu Movie
I saw this with my mom today and I really enjoyed it. While I am no hard-core fan of Billie Holiday, I did know a little bit about her so that was why I chose to watch this. I gotta say I wasn't disappointed at all watching this. It talks about her drug life and her life during the time she sang a certain song about the slaughtering of black people at the time. Tbh this movie really didn't not feel like a Hulu movie, it felt more like a movie that could come out in theaters but couldn't obviously due to the Covid pandemic. Overall, if you like Billie Holiday or anything old time or old time singers, check it out. You will enjoy it. 8 out of 10 for me.

Family Guy: Christmas Is Coming
(2019)
Episode 9, Season 18

This is probably the worst Family Guy Christmas special in my opinion
And you wanna know why? An almost 18-year old girl having an orgasm near Santa isn't funny to me because Santa is an old man while Meg is technically a minor. Even though Meg never was my favorite character in the show I felt bad for her in all of the seasons because she was tortured and treated horribly for no reason, like SSP in Season 10 or any episode during and after Season 7. But here I did not like her because she acts so insane here and not in a good way. Once again, trying to have an orgasm and rape Santa isn't funny! Tbh with what I mentioned here, I think this episode is likely worse than The 2000 Year Old Virgin. At least there were jokes in that episode I didn't mind. And don't get me started on Christmas Guy! I don't hate that episode, but it is one of my least favorite Christmas episodes; not because Brian came back, but because the plot was very meh but a few jokes did get a laugh out of me in that episode too. Here there are no funny jokes and the premise is boring as hell. What is interesting about what happened in this episode? Nothing. Overall, I give this episode a 2 out of 10 because it is not the worst Family Guy episode ever, but it is probably the worst Family Guy Christmas episode I have ever seen.

Family Guy: Stewie Is Enceinte
(2015)
Episode 12, Season 13

My Guilty Pleasure Episode
Okay, even though I am giving this episode an 7 out of 10, I am doing that because I enjoyed how bad this episode was. This episode was a so bad it's good Family Guy episode in my opinion. I found this episode so hilarious because this plot was so messed up. The fact Stewie impregnates himself with Brian's DNA was messed up, and even the fact Stewie, a MALE baby, got pregnant is messed up. The scene that made me laugh most was the photoshoot scene where Brian looks awkward as hell while Stewie is so into it. And the half-human half-dog babies were so weird looking other than Finn, the one who looks like Brian but with Stewie's skin and hair and Brian's facial features. The other plot was very meh in my opinion. I did like the idea of Peter and his friends try to make a viral video but fails to get views unlike other videos shown on the news. However, how it was done was kinda boring. I will say I did like the video Peter did where he took pictures of himself and get sleep deprivation due to an alien haunting him. The main thing I didn't like about the episode were the facts that the babies were deformed in a way. One's bones were loose, another was blind, and another one is deaf, and those three die. And at the end SPOILER ALERT: the half-human half-dog babies were put up for adoption. But it could have ended worse in my opinion because they could have killed the babies instead and I would have been pissed. Once again, I give this episode a 7 because it is a guilty pleasure episode because I enjoyed how messed up it was with the Stewie plot, but I took a few points off because of the ending and the Peter plot was very meh for me.

Family Guy: Con Heiress
(2018)
Episode 8, Season 17

The Jokes Here Are Weak
I haven't watched the show in a while since season 16. And seeing how low rated all the episodes in season 17, I chose to watch this episode since this was the most low rated episode next to You Can't Handle The Booth. Tbh, the long name gag in this episode that everyone here mentioned was boring from the get-go. And guess what? They do that two more times in this episodes probably to bore you out. So yeah. I would recommend you to skip this one as the episode gets worse. 2 out of 10 for me.

Family Guy: Better Off Meg
(2020)
Episode 18, Season 18

There are some things I like, others not so much
Not gonna lie, I liked the plot where Meg moves on from the family and goes in an apartment and hangs out with new friends. The plot pretending where she was dead and Chris locking her in the van and she bangs her head on the floor and bleeds out was pretty disgusting to me. Half of this episode feels like a sequel to Seahorse Seashell Party because Meg stands up for the family in a way and then gets back to them at the end where the abuse continues. I will say though, not as bad as SSP, but it is still pretty bad. Definitely one of the worst episodes in this season, and this season was like a part 2 to Season 12, which was the worst season of Family Guy ever. I wouldn't say as bad as Season 12, because there were a few episodes in this season I did like, while in Season 12 there were only like 3 good episodes. Overall, this episodes gives a 3 out of 10 because I did like what I mentioned earlier in this review.

The Wizard of Oz
(1939)

My All Time Favorite Movie
Fun fact: I don't like musicals, but this film is without a doubt my favorite musical of all time and my favorite movie of all time. This is a movie I never get sick of. I am 19 years old and have been watching it every year since I was 5, and I am a huge fan of old movies. All the actors in the movie are phenomenal but my most favorites were Judy Garland, Margaret Hamilton and Bert Lahr. Their characters were the best because even though the witch is evil, I loved the Wicked Witch of The West and all her lines because she made me laugh a lot, Dorothy was a very caring character to Toto, the lion, the Tin Man, and the scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion was always a character I related to as someone who gets nervous a lot. I will say though, the only thing I don't like about this film is what happened to Garland behind the scenes. If you do research, you will find out she had to not have sleep for 72 hours and overworked her, and whenever she slept it was only for 4 hours. Her mother and Louis Meyer also started her on drugs during this time as well, as well as have her barely eat. All that aside, if you have never seen this movie, you are seriously missing out! It is one of the best movies of all time. 10 out of 10 for me. A+

Mulan
(2020)

Finished watching it and I think this is the best Disney remake by far.
Just finished watching the remake of Mulan. And shall I say, it was SO worth the wait! I loved every minute of it and I teared up a few times watching it, especially close to the ending tears were coming down. I shall say, I found it a LOT better than the original. Even though there were no songs and no Mushu, the fighting and everything else happening around it made that not matter to me. I was also glad they changed a lot in this movie compared to the original. It made the movie more interesting to me. I will rate the remake of Mulan probably a 9 out of 10. I loved it that much and I don't think there was anything I did not like about the movie.

Ink Master
(2012)

I understand why people don't like this show but personally I like it
Yes there is drama in this show and there were a few moments that made me mad, for example two episodes with Julia Carlson where she tells her client to go f*** himself and Chris Blinston when he mocked a client with a panic attack. But other than that, I like this show mainly because i like seeing the tattoos and seeing what the judges think. However I will admit they are a bit biased sometimes because there were some times where I disagreed with them. Other than that I don't mind this show.

Prozac Nation
(2001)

People Are Crazy If They Don't Like This Movie
This movie is so depressing and so so sad but it is a very good movie coming from Ricci. She plays a girl named Lizzie who is based on a real person and I honestly have never related to a character more than Lizzie. I also cried a few times watching this as I dealt with some of the same things she dealt with too. Overall this movie is really good, and no I have never read the book but I still loved this movie a lot. 8 out of 10 for me.

How Far Is Tattoo Far?
(2018)

I think this show is worse than Just Tattoo Of Us
Don't get me wrong, Just Tattoo Of Us is also bad and does the same as this show, but at least that show every so often had nice and good meanings in tattoos, which happens rarely. Here, it is mostly people who secretly hate each other getting disgusting tattoos. For some reason, this show is addicting especially for being terrible. Maybe it is morbid curiosity because I wonder if the tattoos will get worse and worse, and the answer is yes, it does. Watch the clips on YouTube if you don't believe me. And overall, I think this show is a lot worse than Just Tattoo Of Us because the tattoos made are mostly 10 times stupider (not in a funny way) and worse than on that show. I have seriously never seen one good and meaningful message of a tattoo on this show. Honestly, idk who the heck would volunteer to be on this show. I am sure half the people got the tattoos lasered off after being on this show.

Miss Americana
(2020)

Loved this documentary
Been a big Taylor Swift fan since I was a kid, which was around the time she was in her late teens. This documentary was very fun to watch and it showed all the events surrounding her life and all of that was interesting to watch.

Cats
(2019)

Not Nearly As Bad As Everyone Made It Out To Be.
Okay, don't get me wrong. It's not good, but I don't think it was nearly as bad as others made it out to be and I kind of enjoyed it. Just came back from the theaters, and I am not gonna lie, the first half an hour is all but songs, no plot whatsoever. And after that, the plot begins the jellicle cat competition, which I found kind of interesting. Overall I thought the movie was okay and it got a few laughs out of me, plus I loved Francesca Hayward's character. Even though she is barely an actress, she has only been in maybe 3 movies now just as a ballet dancer in the first two and both a ballet dancer and actress in this movie, I thought she did really good as Victoria. Another thing I liked were the songs, which were all from the original play, which i have never seen before. Only one new song was added in this movie and I believe it was Taylor Swift's song and that was a good song too. The actors did good singing them too even though most of them are not singers in real life. The only problem i noticed was in a few scenes, you can tell a few of the actors' cats were not edited real well, and I noticed it mostly with Taylor Swift's cat character in one scene. Overall, this movie is not good nor bad to me, and i don't think it deserves the 2.6 rating, i think it deserves more of a 4 out of 10 rating. I consider it an okay movie and not nearly as bad as people made it out to be. I give Cats a 5 out of 10.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
(2018)

This movie is okay, but there's nothing spectacular about it
This movie is barely nutcracker like. And this movie has characters who barely have character. The only character who is actually likable and has character is Clara, played by Interstellar and Twilight star Mackenzie Foy. She actually does do a good job playing her, I will admit, and while this isn't one of her best, it is a lot better than the Twilight movie she was in(Lol)!And the only character I found annoying in this movie was Keira Knightley's character. She has an annoying high pitched voice and she is a boring villain. Every other character except for Clara, like I said is very boring. The nutcracker had no character as well! Overall, I didn't hate this movie, I just wish the characters had more personality and was more nutcracker-like and had more story to it, and I will say it did have a few good moments in it. If you have kids and they wanna see it during Christmas, they may enjoy it and it is out on Netflix, where I watched it not around Christmas time. Parents would find it boring and even people who like the nutcracker story may also find it boring. While I am no hardcore fan of nutcracker, I do like the story but this movie I only found okay but it wasn't terrible. And mind you, I originally wanted to see this in theaters with my boyfriend who had no interest and he said if I wanted to see it that bad he would and because it had bad reviews I was like "Never mind about it, I'll wait until it comes out of theaters." And after watching this at home I am glad I didn't see it in theaters and same with my bf. I would have felt bad if I did make him see this in theaters. Lol Anyways, like I said a million times, it was okay, but this movie wasn't very special. I mean luckily i didn't hate this. I rate The Nutcracker And The Four Realms a 5 out of 10.

The Simpsons: The Boys of Bummer
(2007)
Episode 18, Season 18

The Worst Simpsons Episode I HAVE EVER SEEN!
This episode is seriously like Spongebob's One Coarse Meal 2 years before it even existed, mainly because it includes a suicide scene, done worse than OCM I think because people still taunt Bart after he attempts suicide. It is done worse than OCM because OCM was just one person doing it there. Here it is buttloads of people harrasing him. Why? Because he couldn't catch a ball at the Isotopes Championship game and they lost because of it and the stadium tells people to throw beer at him and they even drive him in a police car so they can continue! He even tried to get help which also gets him taunted by a former baseball player to the point Bart cries and he starts spray painting "I HATE BART SIMPSON" all over Springfield until he attempts suicide. The ending isn't any better. Honestly, I hate this episode more than Lisa Goes Gaga. Lisa Goes Gaga was bad mainly because it was boring and Lisa was very unlikable, here everyone is so unlikable that this episode made me angry. I know it is a cartoon, but it doesn't make the episode better that it is not real. Same with One Coarse Meal and also Family Guy's Brian's A Bad Father, which also included a suicide "joke." Overall, if you love the Simpsons, DO NOT watch this episode, unless if you wanna see One Coarse Meal in Simpsons form. I give this episode a 1 out if 10

The Simpsons: Lisa Goes Gaga
(2012)
Episode 22, Season 23

Its Bad But I Found Boys Of Worse
There really isn't much to spoil here, but honestly, Idk what the point of the episode was other than to shoehorn Lady Gaga in the plot. And honestly, I like Lady Gaga, she is a great singer and one of my all time favorite pop singers, but I found it sad that she had to be in one of the worst Simpsons episodes. And FYI she was so excited to do this episode! I wonder how she felt once the episode actually came out and she watched it, if she ever did. They should have done a different plot with Lady Gaga and Lisa and it probably could have worked. My main problem with this episode is not Lady Gaga, it is Lisa. She is so unlikable in this episode and I couldn't STAND HER in this episode. She is so unlikable to the point that she yells at Lady Gaga later in the episode over...almost nothing. While her help attemps failed, at least she tried to help you, Lisa! Don't yell at her over stupid things. So she then makes Lady Gaga go off crying small diamonds and I don't get the joke. Why is she crying diamonds? And then she talks to Gaga again a couple hours later and then they do a song together. And then the episode just ends. However, I gotta say, the Homer Poker Face spoof at the end was kinda funny, which was the only thing i laughed at this whole episode. On the other hand, Lady Gaga did a fine job voicing herself. I mean at least she tried. My other problem with this episode is they tell the same "joke" about her wearing weird outfits. Okay i get it! She wears weird outfits. You don't have to tell us 100 million times. Why can't you make up another joke for Lady Gaga? Overall, is this episode the worst? To me, it is not number one but it is in the top 5 worst for me, on number 2. But I found Boys Of Bummer worse because it was like One Coarse Meal two years before it even existed and I hate episodes that joke about suicide, and especially when the suicide jokes are done horribly, also like FG's Brian's A Bad Father. This episode I didn't like because it was mostly boring and Lisa was so unlikable. The only good part of this episode is Gaga's songs, including the one at the end, and Gaga herself because she actually was somewhat likable in this episode, at least I thought so anyways. It doesn't mean it saved the episode from being bad though, but you know what i mean. I give Lisa Goes Gaga a 3.5 out of 10.
