The Accountant.

0

My poor brother lmao. My poor fucking brother. I drive him literally insane. One day bro, I’ll pay you back. I promise. Anyways. We caught the 8pm showing of The Accountant at The Grove, late af. That might have been why I was so confused the entire movie. But yo, this movie was lit. It was really intense. I think every accountant out there should watch it, just cause. Like their boss should take the company as an outing haha.

Wiki: Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Using a small-town CPA office as a cover, he makes his living as a freelance accountant for dangerous criminal organizations. With a Treasury agent (J.K. Simmons) hot on his heels, Christian takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a legitimate client. As Wolff gets closer to the truth about a discrepancy that involves millions of dollars, the body count starts to rise.

So Ben Affleck kills it per usual. And Anna Kendrick in the movie was tripping me out. I’ve only seen her play funny roles, like bizarre comedy roles haha. So seeing her all serious in a movie was weird. Plus kept noticing how tiny she was. Like I wonder how she is in person lmao. Okay I’ll stop. She did good.

This movie caught my eye particularly bc I used to be a math major. Like… I fucking loved that shit. Algebra was so fun to me lmao. I’m so sad. I always say I feel like I had so much potential but then I discovered partying and that was the end of that. My brain is fried. In reality, I transferred to UCLA as a math major but that shit was way too hard. It was a joke. Not that philosophy was much easier, but my ego wasn’t shot from getting back 30%’s on the midterms. This was AFTER I studied my ass off.

Wow anyways. What they don’t tell you in the plot is that Ben is autistic. It’s a crazy aspect of the film but it was extremely eye-opening. No spoiler alert, pretty sure it’s in the trailer haha. Definitely a solid movie. A little over 2 hours. I’d recommend it. Again, esp for you accountants. And I feel like a lot of my friends are. They work the craziest longest hours. Mad respect.

Today was a fucking Monday if it ever was one. I couldn’t sleep til late (stan) so work was a definite struggle. Took a nap in my car on my lunch. Please tell me other people do that. I feel like the minority.

Went straight to the dentist for a checkup. Went to the doctor to pick up my scripts. Went to Core Power Yoga 2. That shit had me sweating profusely. So necessary though.

Then went home to get my laptop because I had to go to Verizon to get a new iPhone. I completely shattered my screen last night, which is starting to feel like a damn curse. I had a free upgrade (my bro’s line, again, ty) and literally drove all the way home so I could back up my shit at the store.

BUT IT WOULDN’T BACK UP. LITERALLY. Kept saying “turn off Find my iPhone” when it was off on all devices. Verizon told me I had to go to Apple cause they were stumped. So of course, The Grove, which is the busiest Genius Bar in all of LA, verbatim from one of their workers. The dude was nice and tried to help me, but couldn’t. Cool. I had to come back in the AM right when they open. As if I have time for this.

Sorry guys. My blog is literally for me to complain about my unnecessarily dramatic life. It’s like, drama with myself. Lmao.

And then I fucked up and didn’t tell my bro I was at The Grove so he drove all the way to the Beverly Center cause that’s where Verizon was. Smh. So sorry bro. You hate me.

The popcorn at the movies was stale. Goodbye.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Friend put me on this track last night. FEELS.

 

Kevin Hart: What Now?

0

If you guys know me, you know I love Kevin Hart. He’s prob my favorite comedian, with Hannibal Buress a close runner-up. Not gonna lie I was low key sad I didn’t get the invite to the screening in Hollywood but CAN’T WIN EM ALL lmao. Anyways.

Shout out to Kevin Hart who just got a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Like… that’s so lit. He deserves that one hunnid. He worked his ass off to where he is now. I’m a huge fan. I’ll literally die at his facial expressions.

Plot: Comic Kevin Hart performs his stand-up routine in front of 50,000 people at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

I def walked into this thinking it was gonna be a movie, like some Ride Along with Ice Cube type shit. Wrong. It’s def a comedy stand-up special. It was filmed at the last stop on his What Now? tour at this huge stadium in Philly. I literally got FOMO watching it ha. I was like damn, I woulda loved to be there. It looked so lit.

This movie had me crying. Shout out to my girl for sacrificing sleep to watch this with me. We hit the 9:35pm showing at Regal LA Live downtown. First of all, this theater is fucking nice. Like the moment you walk in you’re like wow. What a beautiful chandelier haha.

We were definitely late af. Confession. We were late bc we were looking for a dispensary to pick up lmao. We literally had no time to spare so my girl Yelped the first one, which lead us to the middle of nowhere. In reality, it lead us to frats by USC but still. It turns out it was a delivery service. Fail af.

At this point, we’re already late and didn’t any more setbacks. Next thing you know, there are police lights and sirens going off behind me. In all honesty, I didn’t even flinch. I was more annoyed I was late for the movie.

When the cop walked up, I immediately noticed he was an older Asian male. I was like, I got this lmao. I literally kissed his ass. I honestly didn’t know what was wrong, but I guess I wasn’t allowed to make a left onto Olympic from Figeroa. I lied and said I make that turn every day (more like every week) and I asked why it wasn’t allowed today.

At this point I feel like I have him. He asked how I missed all the cones and I literally just shrugged. Thank the Lord above he didn’t run my license, he was seriously about to go back to his car. What he doesn’t know is I spent 2.5 hours in court this morning at 8am in Santa Monica fighting a red light ticket. IT GOT DISMISSED THOUGH. I almost cried.

Anyways. He asked a couple times if I drank and I kept repeating I was sober. He gave me a test and had me follow his pencil… and then let me go. I was actually surprised. I never get let go haha. If he wrote me a ticket, I honestly don’t know what I would have done. Besides be a complete bitch.

Anyways, Kevin Hart movie. Amazing. Go see it. It had me crying. I loved it.

We were in the area bc we just hit this Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns event. It was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which is fucking huge. I fucking loved it. I thought it was so dope. It was just a display of carved out pumpkins, of like sports, movies, cartoons, faces, everything. I legit thought it was sick.

It’s only like 10 bucks with the promo code, open 10/13-10/16, aka this weekend. Go!!! Here’s the link:

This month is fucking nuts. Let’s go.

TRACK OF THE DAY: That new new.

 

The Birth of a Nation.

0

Wow. I’m honestly completely speechless. This movie was extremely heavy and left me at a loss for words. I hadn’t heard much about it, but people told me it was a slave movie. That’s a topic I definitely showed interested in growing up in high school. I hated history too. Martin Luther King was always an idol to me.

This picture captures the emotion in this film. I’m gonna hit you with the Wiki plot bc IMDB’s is pointless:

Nat Turner is an enslaved Baptist preacher who lives on a Virginia plantation owned by Samuel Turner. With rumors of insurrection in the air, a cleric convinces Samuel that Nate should sermonize to other slaves, thereby quelling any notions of an uprising. As Nate witnesses the horrific treatment of his fellow man, he realizes that he can no longer just stand by and preach. On Aug. 21, 1831, Turner’s quest for justice and freedom leads to a violent and historic rebellion in Southampton County.
Sorry if that was long. I guess this was the remake of the original one. My homeboy said it literally showed maybe 10-15% of the whole story, which tripped me out. Everything that took place in this film was a lot to take in.
Bringing light into the situation… what happened to us before the movie was so bizarre. Literally think back and laugh. I was late coming from Westwood, so my homeboy bought his ticket. 7:15pm at Arclight Culver City (yup was just here). He said J10. Cool.
Met my hg and tell the cashier dude the movie time and he asked us to pick our seats, but we see J10 is empty. Odd. Didn’t think anything of it… probably should have.
We walk into theater 4 bc that’s what our tickets said. You guys. We literally walked into the end of the movie, like literally we watched the last 7 minutes of Birth of a Nation. He put us in the wrong fucking theater and somehow, someway, we managed to catch the ending. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?
Of course I complained and we got free passes but still, we saw the fucking ending haha. The cashier gave us tickets to the 8:15pm showing, which was in the same theater as the 6:15, so we walked in for the end. I was literally wondering why it was so crazy too. SMH. If there ever was an SMH, it would be here.
Anyways, we finally get in and meet my friend who I yelled at saying he was in the wrong theater. LMAO. Sorry boo. Literal hot mess.
The movie is 2 hours long and I honestly say, only go see it if you can handle it. I had to look away many times. One scene honestly broke my heart. It really did and it’ll probably repeat in my head every time I think of this movie. Definitely need to be thick-boned for this one. I cried for sure.
Also, going with 2 of my African American friends, I really realize how many black friends I do have. Some are REALLY into the Black Lives Matter movement, some don’t say a word (making me wonder if they care as much). I just wanted to say I respect each and every one of my friends, regardless of race. Everyone has their own experiences with racism.
It was EXTREMELY slow at work today. You guys don’t know how I bad I wanted Colombus Day off lmao. This holiday doesn’t apply to most of us though. Definitely had a lot of chocolate and slept in my car on my lunch. Happy Monday right?
Went to Core Power Yoga Sculpt in Westwood after. Thank you, as always. Then had a dental procedure for my tooth that was pulled. I guess this was an implant? Idk but it was painful. My mouth is STILL numb.
And I had to get antibiotics and I literally choked when I tried to take it while driving on my way to the movies. I thought I was gonna die. Those pills are too big.
And my cheap ass passed on the Motrin cause I didn’t wanna pay and I had Advil at home. My mouth literally started throbbing in the movie. I was in pain.
I’m a joke.
Bye.

Holy fucking shit man. This movie was absolutely insane. And I know I rave about all movies, but seriously. Really. GO SEE THIS!!!! IT’S LIFE CHANGING lmao. I swear, I enjoyed every second of it. Well, minus the parts I got scared shitless. But it legit was the craziest movie I’ve seen in a long long time. SO GOOD. It makes for a great night out fr. Please go and hit me haha I’d love to hear your thoughts.

IMDB plot: A divorcee becomes entangled in a missing persons investigation that promises to send shockwaves throughout her life.

This is based on a novel. So crazy man. How do authors think of this shit? Literally. I thought about getting into the plot but there’s just way too much that happens throughout the entire film. You have to go see it.

Also the cast is beyond lit. Emily Blunt KILLS IT. Seriously, homegirl deserves an Oscar. I gotta finish this article so I’m going to leave you with this haha.

Shout out to my homeboy who met me at Arclight Culver City at 7:30pm. I haven’t been to that theater in a minute. We had a ball. And shout out to him for filling me in every time I got lost ha. Literally, you might need to focus on this one.

Also, staying positive. He reminded me that you can’t have light without darkness. That really stuck with me. Muah <3.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Got put on this artist last night. Shout out to dope talent.

Storks.

Wow. This movie was fucking adorable. Literally exactly what I needed. It was literally so cute haha I love cartoons. I recommend anyone who knows a child to take them. Or hit up a homie haha. It had such a great message at the end that was so relevant to today’s society. Cough cough racism. Definitely didn’t expect that.

Shout out to my homeboy who drove an hour in traffic to meet me at The Grove at 7:45pm. I was coming from downtown so mad traffic too. Los Angeles, you’re killing me. But I was super happy to hang out with him. He’s an old friend I haven’t seen in a minute. We posted in the back so we could chit chat lmao. He’s a fucking nurse in the ER. So much respect for his work man. I wouldn’t last a second.

Anyways. I was super down today bc I gave up my Bad Boy Family Reunion ticket haha. Press passes were super limited so they only gave one ticket per media outlet. Put it in my planner months ago when the tour was announced haha but oh whale. Gave it to our social media girl who she deserves it. One hunnid.

Back to the movie. First of all, had no idea storks were birds haha. My friend had to educate me. Maybe I did but forgot idk. Was literally saying “storkes” all fucking day lmao. -___- Here’s the plot:

Storks have moved on from delivering babies to packages. But when an order for a baby appears, the best delivery stork must scramble to fix the error by delivering the baby.

It was adorable. If I haven’t said that already. Less than an hour and a half too. Go go go.

I hate coming home and having to do laundry. Worst feeling ever haha. So much on my to-do list. I would like to say, I’m being super reflective. I’m analyzing what’s happening in my life and asking “why God?” Defending myself claiming I’m a good person, so why are bad things happening to me?

And I just realized I’m asking the completely wrong question. God got me. K bye.

TRACK OF THE DAY: My girl just texted me she wanted a crane tattoo and she was bumping this lmao. Solange ftw.

Deepwater Horizon.

0

Omg the movies. I’ve been so busy I legit didn’t even know what was playing in theaters. Which is a first. I don’t like it lmao. #FOMO. Probably a good thing though, bc movies are fucking $15.50. How is that even possible?

Anyways. I had plans to hang out with the broskee tn bc I fucking miss him. We finally were able to catch a flick. We chose Deepwater Horizon bc Mark Wahlberg and Kate Hudson. Duh. And it got bomb reviews, like 89%. And it was less than 2 hours. 7:10pm at The Grove.

It’s based on a true story, which is always a plus: A story set on the offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, which exploded during April 2010 and created the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

Basically a drilling accident gone bad. My roomie had seen it and I asked if it was good. She said it was loud. Lots of screaming. Which is v accurate. But somehow, my ass fell asleep lmao. Idk man, idk. Had a long ass day at work and then went to Core Power Yoga Sculpt and died. But really. I’m super out of shape.

The movie was a little slow to begin IMO. But it got really intense toward the latter half. Pretty surreal how something like that can happen. My bro (who actually stayed awake) mentioned how sad it was what people do for money. I guess they wanted the product so bad they put people’s lives at risk. Smh.

We talked throughout the entire movie haha so much to catch up on. Anyways. Life is unexplainable rn. Bye.

TRACK OF THE DAY: if you haven’t heard Solange’s album, I definitely recommend it. She’s turning everyone’s heads.
