Recent Movie Reviews

Today, I wanted to share some reviews of some movies I have seen in theaters recently! I feel like this summer in particular there have been so many GOOD movies coming to the theaters. My boyfriend and I recently signed up for AMC A-List which allows you to see up to 3 movies a week for around $20/ month. This includes Dolby, 3D, and regular theater tickets! So it really is a good deal. Basically if you see two movies in Dolby a month it pays for itself. Ticket prices are so outrageous so we've found that this pass allows us to see movies whenever we want, and we don't have to worry about the cost as much. A Dolby ticket at our theater is $16+ so if you have an AMC near you I highly recommend looking into A-List. In the past we had Movie Pass before the rules got insane and it was really great. But, AMC A-List doesn't limit what shows you can see. So, we can go at a peak time say Friday at 7:30pm on opening night of a movie and it is included in the plan. So, long store short we've been seeing a TON of movies. 

Below are the reviews of the movies we have seen that are still available at my local theater. Hopefully they are still around by you so you can catch them if you haven't already seen them! 

Spider Man Far From Home | Okay.... I know I am gonna get some shock from this BUT this is the first Marvel movie I have ever really seen. I did not see End Game I have no knowledge of other characters but I still really enjoyed this movie! I may have a new celebrity crush on Tom Holland, I LOVE HIM! He was adorable in this movie and the action was great as well. Normally I don't really like super heroes but Spiderman may have changed that for me. This movie has action, cute high school awkward romance, and some good funny parts. Also, part of it is filmed in London in areas I have personally been numerous times so that was really cool to see. 

Yesterday | This movie was just meh for me. Didn't hate it didn't love it. It was just kind of slow. I enjoyed the music obviously, but most of the funny parts were in the trailer. Honestly the best part of the movie was Ed Sheeran. He was hilarious! Otherwise I wouldn't recommend seeing it unless you go on a discount ticket day or you have some sort of movie pass. 

Toy Story 4 | I have so many thoughts on this movie.... the short answer is I love Forky but pretty much dislike the rest and I HATED the ending. HATED IT! I still love Disney (obvi) and I still love Toy Story. But I don't think we needed this movie. Would I recommend you see it? I'm not sure at this point. I'm honestly over it and pretending this movie didn't happen. #SorryNotSorry for the very unpopular opinion. 

Aladdin | Now THIS is how you do a live action! This movie was fabulous. Will Smith surprised me, the singing was great, costumes amazing, loved everything about it. Highly recommend! If you were to pick one Disney movie I'd pick Aladdin over Toy Story 4. 

Men in Black | I've never seen the original Men in Black, but I loved this one! I thought it had action but also had some cute parts. Also, loved that part of it was filmed in London and Paris because those are my two favorite cities. I saw some bad reviews of this but I actually really enjoyed it! 

Late Night | This is another meh movie for me. I was expecting more. It is legit the same plot line as the Devil Wears Prada but at a comedy show. I'm not sure about it. Wasn't as funny as I thought, more of a deep movie vs. a comedy in my opinion. 

Secret Life of Pets 2 | Secret Life of Pets is one of my favorite non-Disney animated movies! It is so funny! I think the first movie was better then the second but that is usually the case with kid movies like this. But, it was still super funny, cute, and entertaining! If you enjoy animation I would recommend it. Any kid at heart would enjoy this movie. 

Stuber | GUYS this movie was sooooo sloooowww. I felt like I was moving in slow motion. It is literally 50% just an Uber ride. Like you feel like you are just in an Uber driving through town. Not going to lie it was painful. My boyfriend and I kept looking at each other waiting for it to end. Don't waste your money and skip this one. Sorry that was kind of harsh but it is what you need to hear. 

Those are my reviews on movies I've seen recently! Hopefully you find this helpful to decide which movie to see on your next date night, family day, or girls night! 
What movie are you excited about this month? Let me know in the comments!
