MOVIE REVIEW: GET OUT


Bloody and profane - two words to describe "Get Out". This thriller surely is one of the surprise hits of 2017. While this film is packaged as a horror-thriller, it never fails to deal with some points in life like discussion on race on life in general. The film is not violently infused but on every scene that deals with fighting, kicking, stabbing and guns it totally puts brutality into its face.



This however is not the typical thriller as the film-making was done impeccably and smart. Get Out handles prejudice and racism through character interactions and performance, rather than preaching. Overall feel was fresh yet staying true to making people feel the jitters.


Overall, the movie was great. 8.5 out of 10 popcorns.

THE 89TH ACADEMY AWARDS: 10 BEST DRESSED

And as usual with every awards night there are definitely misses on the red carpet but definitely a whole lot are hits and would simply make you say you wanna wear those stuff as well. Here is the Top 10 best dressed celebrities in the recently concluded 89th Academy Awards.



1. Kirsten Dunst
This black dress was perfect for Kirsten and it just was elegant, classy and simply on point. The dress really emphasized the curves in Kirsten's body and the fact that her shoulders was showing on this dress made it the more sexy.


2. Priyanka Chopra
Classy in white. Priyanka is overall a goddess and this dress simply made her feel more like one. The intricate details on this gown is just gorgeous and it makes her feel the aura of regal in her.


3. Brie Larson
Stunning and sexy. This gorgeous black dress by Oscar De la Renta seemed like it was tailored fit for Brie. The waves in the dress provided sexiness to the already sexy persona of Brie and with her red lips on the red carpet she was simply jaw dropping.


4. Viola Davis
Viola. Viola. Viola. All I can say is wow! This flaming red ensemble really brought out the best in Viola. The great complement of the dress color with Viola's color was exquisite and the gown truly showed that indeed the girl is smoking hot.


5. Taraji Henson
Black is sexy and Taraji showed that all too well. With that plunging neckline and the nice slit to the gown, it was simply one hot dress done in perfection. Add the great necklace and she was plain drop dead gorgeous that night.


6. Leslie Mann
And Oscar De la Renta makes us wow again. Yellow is not the usual dress we normally see at the red carpet but we can't help but applaud this dress that Leslie dons that night. Whimsical and really feminine with its curves and cuts, this simply make our cut as one of the better dresses that night.


7. Halle Berry
While most fashion pundits does not like Halle Berry's over-all feel noting her bizaare hairstyle that night, I still put her in my top list. This Versace ensemble looks playful and sexy but chic and classy at the same time.


8. Emma Watson
Simple and sexy, this young best Actress winner was all beaming that night on the red carpet and even as she accepts her trophy for her award.


9. Auli'i Cravalho
This is perhaps the most feminine piece I have seen that night and this white ensemble with all its trails and layerings was just on point with every detail. Auli'i's smile even made the dress stand out the more.


10. Scarlet Johansson
While most people see this as too casual for the Academys, I still believe Scarlet rocked the walk and with her sexy new look she was simply someone who also made heads turn.


THE 89TH ACADEMY AWARDS: 10 WORST DRESSED

In every big event like the Oscars, all eyes are on not only on who will win the awards but also who will don the best gowns and ensemble during the night. And this year was no different as the stars flocked and strutted their way to the red carpet. Some have really put us in awe with great choices and wonderful pieces but for some we were put into utter disappointment or a feeling of perhaps asking for more. Here is the Top 10 Worst Dressed in the past Academy Awards.



1. Jessica Biel
Normally Jessica stands out with her choices and with a body like hers she is always a regular hit but for this Kaufman Franco piece, I could not find the right words to explain how flat I felt for this gown.


2. Sofia Boutella
With a face like hers, she would definitely make heads turn but at that night she captured attention at the wrong reasons. This unflattering Chanel gown with the feathers at the bottom was simply unflattering.


3. Janelle Monae
Black is often a safe choice at any event but with a lot going on with this piece, I am simply lost. Could have been a sexy piece with a great upper portion but the lower parts of the gown was blown out of proportions not emphasizing Janelle's great form.


4. Dakota Johnson
This piece simply does not work for me. Whatever is Dakota's inspiration for this gown should definitely be forgotten. The ribbony feel at the middle of the dress looks more elementary in design than a simple skirt.


5. Felicity Jones
And this one is definitely a sleeper. Bland color, very weak design and the over-all feel was just way off. I thought Felicity was going to bed with this piece.


6. Hailee Steinfeld
Her look was spot on as I like the way she came add to her oozing confidence and appeal but overall this gown was rather flat with the designs seem to be scattered all over the place. One of the dresses that could have been done better.


7. Nicole Kidman
Blanc, plain, straight and too simple. Not much that you could take from this gown. Nicole had far better gowns worn at the Oscars other than this piece that looks like an cloth wrapped all over her.


8. Salma Hayek
It seems Salma was going to church and not the Academy Awards. This black dress was just nothing special and was an utter waste with the gorgeous Salma.


9. Michelle Williams
There's something about this dress that does not work for me or maybe it was Michelle's overall vibe that night. The dress failed to put sexy and sassy at the right places and turned to be just another dress.



10. Charlize Theron
There is nothing really wrong about this dress but that being said it does not mean that it is that great. Charlize looked matronly with this piece with the cuts design and the color just not working to her advantage.

LA LA LAND AND MOONLIGHT WINS BIG IN CONTROVERSIAL OSCARS




The 89th Academy Awards was a big hit not before some controversies at the tail end of the show as La La Land was initially announced as the Best Picture but afterwards given to Moonlight instead. It was a great shocker as La La Land was seemed poised  to win the big prize but again Moonlight wa as deserving as the musical. La La Land went home with 6 Oscars after a record-tying 14 nominations. Moonlight grabbed 3 trophies which includes the Best Picture piece. Moonlight became the first film with an all-black cast and the first LGBT film to win Best Picture.

MOVIE REVIEW: FIFTY SHADES DARKER


The second installment to the Fifty Shades movie franchise hit me more than the first one. Although the first film was more graphic and more sexual, Fifty Shades Darker triumph this time with putting more emphasis on its emotional aspects. We continue the story of Christian Grey (Jamie Dorman) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) after their emotional break-up.



What hits me with this film is that it focused more on Christian and Ana's love story. We are treated to a place wherein we see the human side of Christian and how affectionate he is. We go into his side stories and what has happened from the past while trying to rekindle the emotions between him and Ana.



The film is gripping with some of the scenes as it will sometimes catch you off guard. But sometimes, in its effort to surprise everyone, it gets too much and lost much fluidity. And while the film's sexual content may have been toned down, some scenes still elicit sexual innuendo and they have successfully made it into a wonderful bonding and ties between two individuals.


Overall, I loved this film and could not wait for the final installment. 8 out of 10 popcorns.

GRAMMY AWARDS THE MUSIC INDUSTRY'S BEST


The 2017 Grammy Awards got mixed feels as it awarded once more Adele with the 3 major awards - Song of The Year, Album of the Year and Record of The Year. Though most people feel Adele's Hello was one of the best for last year, a lot was not expecting the relative sweep. People were put in shock as the highly successful "Lemonade" by Beyoncé failed to snag the best album plum. Some were also much more excited to see Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" as the one for the Record of the Year.



Despite the mixed feels on the results, it was generally a good year again for the music industry's biggest night. Adele went on to become the most successful for the night bringing home 5 trophies. Before the event, Beyoncé seemed like the favorite to win big with her nine nominations but was stopped with the major awards by Adele.
