Café Society. Had to make sure I copy and pasted that é lmao. Pause, I just realized my Flixster app was wrong about the length of the movie. Not okay haha. It was an hour 40 not an hour 25!! I swear, an hour 30 is… the marker sometimes. Not saying this movie was long at all, bc it was actually really good. Really enjoyable and pretty to look at. I was trippin over the picture of this movie. I feel like that’s not the right film term haha. Whatever camera they used, was amazing haha.

The movie takes place between New York and Los Angeles. My future home and current home, jk haha. Or am I. It takes place in the 80’s I think, but the cast in this movie is LIT. Indie films are always the way to go. Fr. They’re way better than the mainstream ones. I always determine they’re indie if they’re only playing at select theaters, aka Landmark on Pico.

One of my fav theaters, but I never go bc my they don’t accept the Moviepass haha. 9:35pm showing. There were prob like ten people in the theater. Went with my homie I haven’t seen in a minute so it was great to catch up. He hit me up and I suggested a movie of course haha. He lives in Culver so this was perf. I just realized the film was very much a love story lmao. I’ma ask him if he thought so too.

Anyways, IMDB plot: Set in the 1930s, a young Bronx native moves to Hollywood where he falls in love with the secretary of his powerful uncle, an agent to the stars. After returning to New York he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.

LMAO I said 80’s. Idk shit about the eras. Someone asked me before if I could choose any era, which one would I live in. I was like, uh…. none haha. Jesse Eisenberg plays the young lad from NY, who tries to go to LA to work for his uncle Steve Carell, who is a big timer in the entertainment industry. Like I said before, the picture was amazing. Every venue they shot looked sooooo bomb haha. One of them I recognized as the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, but back then there were no swarm of tourists at any given moment.

The first scene was at a Hollywood Hills party. Goals af haha. Fr, so nice.

Kristen Stewart, who I used to hate, plays the girl they both fall in love with. It’s a trip man, the age difference. Steve is like daddy status. And yeah, I’ll stop there haha. Jesse is a really good actor, but his character was just so damn nerdy haha. Wonder how he is in real life… Kirsten played her role real well. She’s super talented too. I asked my homeboy if she was really crying in the scenes and he said yes. Damn haha. I could NOT cry on demand.

Anyways, I really enjoyed the film. Def is evidence of the crazy shit that happens in life. Like, literally haha. Also, they had a pretty funny depiction of a Jewish family in NY. My homie’s Jewish ahaha.

Okay, I’d like to take this moment to say my lip hurts like a bitch. I bit it hard af after my mouth was numb at the dentist bc I didn’t wait to eat…. and then I bit it again last night!!!! In the same exact spot, so any progress it made healing goes out the door lmao. Really tho, wish there was a magic serum I could put on it so it heal right away. Come on scientists, step up.

Case of the Mondays af today. I tried to nap and it was just too damn hot in my room. My best from home actually unintentionally motivated me to workout haha. I snuck into LA fitness again. I hate the gym lmao but I had a solid sesh. Listened to a bomb playlist and then Logic’s new mixtape Bobby Tarantino. I love his flow.

AND THEN, I was in a rush bc I had to shower and get to the movie, but my hg wanted bud so being the amazing kind soul that I am, I told her to meet me at Mecca. Since my go-to dispensary got raided, this has become the one. It’s super lit and stays open til 2am. Which is why I’m sad. I got banned lmao. Legit sad about it. The security guard goes “you’re not allowed here ever again.”

I legit just dropped off the bag at my girl’s Lyft. The dude was patrolling outside and we literally just spoke, but I was in such a rush I wasn’t even thinking. Right after I turned around he legit threw a tantrum, and went off about how I could get the shop shut down. It was mad awkward. I literally just ran away and he followed me to see the car I was in. I can’t show face there anymore. Le sigh.

I get it though. It’s a business. Like I get it. I was pissed at first but after some thought, I realize it’s totally my fault. Le sigh again.

Busy day tomorrow, starting with a dentist appointment. Tear. Also, I’ve recently become addicted to grapes. But I always eat too many and my stomach hurts.

WAIT I ALMOST FORGOT. Blake Lively is in the film. She is damn fire man haha.

K bye.

The Perfect Match.

Yoooooooo. Fr tho. P. Diddy is a boss for being with Cassie haha she is bad af. Legit couldn’t get over it the entire movie haha. Every outfit and every scene she’s literally flawless. On purpose obvi haha but still counts. She also has mad piercings haha but in one ear only. It works for her tho. She’s literally amazing in this movie.

The Perfect Match at The Grove at 10:25pm. I had a long ass day: class, work, gym. And I’ve been wanting to see this movie since it came out haha. Love that homeboy was d. He didn’t like it half as much as I did haha. It’s seriously my kinda movie. Cheesy and full of my fav people. Is it okay to say it’s a black movie? I don’t mean to offend anyone. Actually, French Montana is in it, so maybe it’s not haha. Jk. He plays himself. And I legit cannot handle his acting haha. Comedy.

From the title, you can probably guess it’s a love story. Terrence J plays the player who falls in love with Cassie, duh. Gay bestie was drooling over Terrence while I was drooling over Cassie lmao. I’m not gay I swear. Also drooled over Lauren London who’s with my main man/favorite rapper Nipsey Hussle. Like they’re so cute haha. Dascha Polanco from Orange Is The New Black is in it, and I swear she looks better without make up haha. You know how some people it just be like that?

This movie def won’t blow you away. It’s pure entertainment and mindless. I thoroughly enjoyed it. You might not tho haha. Batman v Superman out this weekend. Are people excited?

I legit snuck into LA fitness tn cause I froze my membership. Desperate times call for desperate measures. And ya girl is broke lmao.

TRACK OF THE DAY: New flame from my fav people from the IE.

 

The Choice.

I had fun tn haha. Shoutout to my gay bestie. We hit The Choice at 10:10pm at The Grove, even though it got 6% on Rotten Tomatoes lmao. The user rating was 65% tho hayyyy. I honestly didn’t think it was that bad. That 6% is so damn brutal haha. It was the only movie we hadn’t seen and I needed to do something mindless.

I’ll just copy and paste the plot for you lmao.

“Travis and Gabby first meet as neighbors in a small coastal town and wind up in a relationship that is tested by life’s most defining events.”

It’s basically a ghetto version of The Notebook. But! Gabby is played by the chick from Mad Max and Warm Bodies. She’s hella pretty haha. The dude was whatever. There were HELLA dogs in this movie and they were so glorious. Made me really truly want a pup. Seriously. Golden retriever please. Air Bud was my fav growing up.

The movie was cheesy af but I was entertained. It took place in South Carolina and literally had the most gorgeous shots of nature, the water, sunset, etc. I feel like if anything, it should have at least gotten some credit there. But nope haha. Homeboy was giggling throughout the whole movie, and then he knocked out at the very end. I was dying haha.

We were waiting for something to happen the entire hour and 50 minutes. And then it did, and we were like whoa. Life is literally all about choices. It affects the direction your life takes. He had to make a pretty serious choice at the end of the movie… Oh, it’s a Nicholas Sparks movie. He’s famous right?

My day was okay. Had class. It was so hot. I want to go to the beach and tan. Wish life permitted that rn haha. I hit the gym tn after my nap. Then did hw and went to the movie. Stay up fam.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Thugger just realeased an album I’m Up and it knocks. Here’s the single.
