Nocturnal Animals.

nocturnal

Holy hell. This movie was intense. The entire 2 hours was seriously, so intense. I loved it. Nocturnal Animals at 7:50pm at The Grove. Shout out to my homegirl who was super d for this, and had to deal with my tardy ass. Forever taking into account how long previews are, and even then I’m still late lmao.

So The Grove during the holidays DURING THE WEEKDAYS is just as bad as the weekend. Was literally here Saturday and it was oddly more crowded tn. Like at one point during the walk from the car to the theater, I was stopped. Literally, traffic jam. Unreal. I would normally not mind if I wasn’t late to the movie.

I literally think Jake Gyllenhaal deserves an Oscar for this one haha. He’s SO good man. So talented, and hot. This movie got super high ratings (90%) so I was widit. IMDB plot: An art gallery owner is haunted by her ex-husband’s novel, a violent thriller she interprets as a veiled threat and a symbolic revenge tale.

Damn leave it to IMDB for literally condensing an entire film into one sentence. It does it no justice haha. Pretty much, the movie goes back and forth between fiction and real life. Amy Adams, who is also bae, reads her ex-husband’s novel, which the movie brings to life. This novel is NUTS.

It’s labeled a thriller, and Jake is the star. You’ll have to see for yourself. The first 30 minutes of the movie are literally so nuts. It had us in our seats freaking out over how absurd the situation was. It also made me wish to God that it would never happen to me. Straight up a nightmare.

We got shushed. We sat right in the middle of a packed theater. I hate getting shushed. Don’t shush me… ever. Okay I’m done haha this movie is mad dope, go see it!

Shout out to The Grove being open until 11pm, I was totally able to get some goodies for Christmas gifts. I’ve decided to do something different this year. Instead of getting gifts for EVERYBODY, I’m just taking care of the people I really care about. I’m also broke, so that’s fun. Who let me travel right before Xmas lmao.

I’m excited for the New Year. I’m going to do things different. For the better.

TRACK OF THE DAY: On that Stoney tip. Post Malone’s album in rotation.

Edge of Seventeen.

0

So me and my girl had this movie night planned for weeks. I was looking forward to it. She actually told me we had to see this togeth. Soulmate knows. Edge of Seventeen at The Grove at 8:10pm. It’s an indie film so it doesn’t play at all mainstream movie theaters. I love indie films.

My other movie buddy said he absolutely loved it. He’s in love with Hailee Steinfeld, the main chick. So that prob helped. I’ve never heard of her but def thought she was amazing in this. I thought her best fran was gorgeous too. Man, these girls are supposed to be 17, I def was not poppin at that age lmao.

Leave it to IMDB to keep it as simple as possible:  High-school life gets even more unbearable for Nadine when her best friend, Krista, starts dating her older brother.

Really tho, all the other plots were super long. This is def my kinda movie. I fucking love chick flicks. There was a scene where homegirl’s mom leaves the house and Hailee and her best friend get trashed at the crib. Def reminded me of high school tough with my best fran. Smh. We were reckless. It was the vodka in waterbottle days…. *cringe*

I really fucking enjoyed this movie. We both did. It’s about an hour 45 minutes, totally did not bored once. Bless up. There was this super awkward Asian guy in the film too haha. I hated him at first but learned to love him. If you were reckless in high school, this brings back the feels for sure. Recommend it!

Omg The Grove was so beautiful. The minute I walked out of the parking structure, I was smiling ear to ear. All the Christmas decorations are up, and it’s not even fucking December. HERE FOR IT. I’m sad I don’t live as close anymore, but so worth the 25 minute drive. The Grove is my happy place.

My girl was wondering if there was gonna be fake snow and I called it would happen at 8pm. You know I came here with my bros last year haha. Had to get that fake snow in LA in. The Christmas tree is fucking huge btw. It made me wonder where they got it from lmao. You had to literally back up to snap it.

My day was tiring. I needed tonight. What is life? Serious question.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Shazam-ed this in the movie lmao.

Bad Santa 2.

bad-santa-2-trailer

Yooooooo. This movie was fucking ridiculous lmao. Like, what. The prime example of no fucking filter. Bad Santa 2 at Century 20 Oakridge at 5:25pm. MATINEE FTW. Tickets were only 10 bucks. I needed this though haha. Wanted something funny and mindless today and this was perf.

Finally got to hang out with my best frannnnn. At his crib rn watching the Warriors kill the Lakers. You know. I literally force him to watch movies when I come home lmao. He loves me. Last time we saw Sausage Party, and this was very similar lmao.

IMDB plot: Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus, to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve.

I’m pretty sure I saw the first one, but don’t remember shit. You don’t need to see it though. This shit was wild haha. So explicit. It was only an hour and a half. But it really got us in the mood for Christmas. I CAN’T WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS. Such good vibes always haha. An excuse to literally cuddle and kick back.

I have to vent right quick. I honestly have no fucking time for anyone who hits me with bullshit. Especially people I actually talk to and consider a homie. Like literally nothing pisses me off more, than bullshit. Advice to everyone. Cut the bullshit. If someone doesn’t deserve your time, let them go. Literally feels so much better.

K BYE. MUAH. GO DUBS.

TRACK OF THE DAY: THIS NEW YG MIXTAPE SLAPS. This single was released.

Moonlight.

0

Yo. This is gonna be short cause I’m beat haha. From fucking nothing. I swear, today might have been the most unproductive day of 2016. And it’s okay cause it’s Thanksgiving, but I don’t like it. No days off is my motto. I really feel like I wasted it tho. First day I could sleep in and took way too many sleeping pills. Useless.

Okay so last night me and my bro bro saw Arrival. Moonlight was literally 10x better haha. I’m pretty sure my bro agreed too. Idk. Shout out to my girl who highly recommended I go. Now I’ma do the same and say you all should go see it. I’m pretty sure it’s an indie film so it’s only at select theaters. But it was honestly breath taking. Beautifully made and such a great story.

Per IMDB: A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.

People are calling it movie of the year. And I can see why. It details 3 chapters of a young man’s life, and his struggle with his sexuality. It was explicit, but in the best way for the story. It was honestly really touching. I enjoyed it a lot.

We hit the 4:05pm showing at Santana Row. This theater is amazing. First of all, there’s kettle corn, and it’s so dank. You can mix it with the butter. Second, free parking. Third, the movie ticket was like 11 bucks. I fucking love the bay. Begged my bro to go to Valley Fair down the street after since it was open from 6pm-12am and he said hell no. Smdh lmao.

The movie is a little less than two hours but we weren’t bored for one second. Those are the movies I love lmao. I cannot when it’s slow. Please go see this before it leaves theaters! Would love to discuss it with anyone <3.

Happy Thanksgiving. Muah.

TRACK OF THE DAY: My current turn up track even though I’m literally turnt the fuck down.

Arrival.

img_4977

Whoa. This movie was interesting. V interesting. And weird haha. First of all, HI. OMG. I haven’t seen a movie in so fucking long. Which means I haven’t been on here in so fucking long. Hi.

I was so looking forward to coming home and turning the fuck down, I can’t even tell you. My life has been brazy but no complaints. LA got me so stressed out. I almost didn’t come home too. So fucking glad I decided to. I wanted to hang with my brother even though we live by each other now haha. He just got a girl and doesn’t have time for me anymore. Tear.

Anyways. Almost missed my flight again this morning. Surprise surprise. My alarm fucking did not go off and it was my first time flying out of Burbank. IT’S SO CHILL. Fuck LAX, never going there again lmao. I took the 7am flight cause it was the only one I could afford. Of course, Southwest decided to sit on the runway for a hot 30 minutes before taking off. Sick.

I felt sick from not sleeping. But I had a bunch of errands to do when I got back so that kept me busy. Naps save lives guys. I was laughing because the only American food in my household was Cheeto puffs. Here for it.

My bro kept wanting to see the movie Arrival. I had been so busy, I don’t even know what movies are out anymore. I used to know them like the back of my hand. But it got like 90% so you know I’m widit. I was so fucking excited to be in sweats lmao. I actually went to my homegirl’s crib before but decided to go home to change into even better sweats before the movie lmao. Reckless.

10:20pm at AMC 16 Cupertino. Yassss I’m home. Also yas, 12 dollar movie tickets. Ftw. LA is ridiculous. I swear they’re gonna reach $20 soon., I was in a hoodie, sweatpants, and Uggs, and still freezing. Thermal underneath too. Hello Bay Area.

We walked in right as the movie started. Woot. And mama had Costco tickets so no money spent tonight. Halla. I literally saw my friend’s status calling it the movie of the year so I low key was expecting the best of the best. But was very disappointed lmao. Womp womp. Jk, not VERY. It was just hella slow. For someone like me who lives in the fast fucking lane of life, it was way too slow. The story was great, the plot was great, the cast, everything was dope. I just got bored and started fidgeting. 2 hour movie, ftl (for the loss).

Plot via Rotten Tomatoes: When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team–lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams)–are brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers–and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.

Amy Adams is the main character and she slays. She’s the chick from Superman. Forest Whitaker and Jeremy Renner were in it as well. I would say it’s an alien movie, or sci-fi, if you will. My bro felt bad and said we shoulda seen Moonlight because he could tell I was dying haha but it was honestly cool. Definitely interesting if you’re in a chill, think about life type mood lmao.

People clapped at the end, a good amount. Maybe being cold affected my patience too ha.

One line stuck out to me though: If you could see your life from start to finish, would you change it? DEEEEEP.

Happy Turkey Day guys! Be thankful, eat up, and be with your loved ones <3.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Saw bae last night. She’s legit so fucking good man. If you guys aren’t familiar with AlunaGeorge, she’s this pop singer from London, with a blend of EDM. She’s so talented.

SPECTRE.

I cried today. I did. It was intense. It was right before my nap before I dozed off. I’ve been really emotional. And my eye isn’t getting better. It seems like the medication I got made it worse, which makes no … Continue reading

YAY TO FREE MOVIES. YAY TO FREE ADVANCE SCREENINGS. Again, not positive how I get these, but no questions asked haha. It’s a company called Gofobo? Not sure but I hope they keep hitting me up haha. I had a plus one so I invited my hg. We both had a long rough day, but it was worth it last night. RL Grime yo. Still on a high haha. It was at 7pm at AMC Century City 15, one of my fav spots. Okay, so my standard late night movie parking routine was def in for a surprise. All my spots were taken! My secret is I park by Gelson’s Supermarket and take the elevator up. Fail. I guess 7pm is poppin on a weekday.

There was a table in the front for the screening and they instructed me to go upstairs. I knew nothing about the movie except that the cast was STACKED and it was about Christmas. DOWN. I love these feel good movies. Fr they’re my top choice. Before the movie started, they warned us since this was an advance screening, no cell phones were allowed. We would be asked to leave if caught. Whoa. Way too serious. They also told us this movie is slated to be released November 13. I felt special! They said they would work out any last minute glitches. But it’s interesting to me bc they didn’t ask for our feedback at the end. What was the point?! haha.

The movie was great. It was pretty much the coming together/reunion of a huge family in the spirit of Christmas. The amount of famous actors and actresses in one film though. It reminded me of Love Actually or Valentine’s Day. It stars Ed Helms from The Hangover, Amanda Seyfried who looks the same in every movie, Diane Keaton who I really like even though people think she’s annoying, John Goodman as her husband, the beautiful Olivia Wilde, Marisa Tomei whose character cracked me up, and many more. Okay have to share: Marisa’s character is in a store trying to find a Christmas present and she tries to steal a brooch by putting it in her mouth and walking out. The security guard stopped her real quick. Comedy.

The film was a little long, 2 hours. But it was definitely entertaining. It made me SO excited for Christmas! Even though I don’t really celebrate, it’s just overall a really happy time of the year. Everyone in good spirits and pretty lights and decorations. About it! Gotta get through Halloween and Thanksgiving first doe.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Been hearing hype on this dude Azizi Gibson. His music is pretty raw, a little dark. He actually celebrated his birthday next door to my work at Bait on Melrose the other day. DX came through and I asked them to put me on a track.
