LOL (2012) Mandate Pictures Review from Rotten Tomatoes: 14%Honestly, I have no idea why this movie got bad reviews from critics. The acting is pretty good and the storyline is great. It's a perfect teen romance/drama movie. It deals with real-world teen problems: relationships/romances, family divorces, family issues, school, and friendships. The mother-daughter relationship between Lola and Anne is amazing, especially their texting hugs. Even the relationships are amazing including Lola/Kyle, Anne/James, and Emily/Wen. Not to mention the soundtrack is so good.My Favorite Scene: The plane ride between Lola and KyleStarring: Miley Cyrus, Douglas Booth, Demi Moore, Ashley Greene, Jay Hernandez, Ashley Hinshaw, Adam Sevani, and Austin Nichols.Where to watch: Amazon Prime 2. Vampire Academy (2014) Angry Films Review from Rotten Tomatoes: 16%This movie gets a bad review and I don't really know why. I love a good vampire SciFi/Fantasy movie and sure the acting is a little bit mediocre, but it's still a good movie. The whole film is supposed to be cheesy, comedic, romantic, drama. I thought the storyline and plot were entertaining too. Plus, one of my favorite actors, Dominic Sherwood, stars in it.My Favorite Scene: The fight scene with Sarah Hyland and Zoey Deutch.Starring: Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky. Dominic Sherwood, Sarah Hyland, Gabriel Byrne, and Cameron Monaghan.Where to watch: Netflix 3. Ghostbusters: Answer The Call (2016) Sony Review from Rotten Tomatoes: 74%Here's another movie where I don't know why it gets so much hate. It seemed to have mixed reviews from critics. However, the audience didn't seem to like it. All though I've only seen it once or twice, I enjoyed it. Having the reboot be the female take of the old classic was refreshing. It was fun, action-packed, and hilarious. It even included some guest appearances some cast members from the original film. My Favorite Scene: Kevin the Receptionist SceneStarring: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth.Where to watch: YouTube, Amazon Prime 4. The Greatest Showman (2017) 20th Century Studios Review from Rotten Tomatoes: 57%I was REALLY surprised to find out that this movie had bad reviews by critics. There were so many things I liked about this musical. It has a great soundtrack, plotline, and characters. I also enjoyed the original and reimagined soundtrack. This movie is a good one to watch with the family.My Favorite Scene: "This Is Me" song by the cast.Starring: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya, Keala Settle, Michelle Williams, and Rebecca Ferguson.Where to watch: Disney+ 5. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Lucasfilm Review from Rotten Tomatoes: 57%I know that this movie was disappointing for Star Wars superfans because of the "slow start" and "bad/unfit ending." But despite that, I really liked this one. It was actually my favorite out of all the sequels. I'm a pretty big fan (not the ultimate superfan, but still a good fan) of the Star Wars franchise and I found the ending to the worldwide phenomenon awesome. I loved the effects, the ending for (most) characters, and HUGE cameos from castmates of the original franchise. I found it so good that I saw it in theaters THREE TIMES.My Favorite Scene: It's so hard for me to pick between a couple of scenes tbh. Starring: Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong'o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams.Where to watch: Disney+ 6. Shrek the Third (2007) Dreamworks Review from Rotten Tomatoes: 42%It's been said that Shrek the Third is the Worst movie from the Shrek franchise. I have to say though it's probably my favorite out of them. After the first two movies, it did a good job carrying on the story. My personal favorite part of this one was when all the female characters went into the fight like the badasses they are. The soundtrack is really good too (obviously).My Favorite Scene: The girls' fight scene without a doubt.Starring: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, Antonio Banderas, Julie Andrews, Rupert Everett, and Justin Timberlake.Where to watch: YouTube 7. The Fifth Wave (2016) Columbia Pictures Review from Rotten Tomatoes: 15%First of all, I'd like to say that this movie is one of my favorites. I loved the characters, plotline, concept, and excitement of the film. I hate that it left us on a cliffhanger (yes I know there's a book series). While I loved this movie, I found it COMPLETLY unnecessary for Cassie and Evan's relationship to be romanticized. ESPECIALLY when she CLEARLY had feelings for Ben (#TEAMben). I love the fact that Cassie and her brother, Sam, had such a strong and powerful sibling connection. In conclusion, I'm still waiting for the sequels!!My Favorite Scene: "We're not fighting The Fifth Wave, we are The Fifth Wave" scene and the reuniting between Cassie, Sam, Ben, and the rest of squad 53.Starring: Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, Alex Roe, Maika Monroe, Zackary Arthur, Liev Schreiber, and Alex MacNicoll.Where to watch: Hulu, Amazon Prime 8. The Covenant (2006) Screen Gems Review from Rotten Tomatoes: 4%This was a pretty controversial movie for audiences according to Rotten Tomatoes. Despite this, the critics were in agreement for strongly disliking. However, this movie was SO fun/entertaining for me to watch! There were so many actors that I recognized from other movies and TV shows. Some of which are my favorites. I understand the flaw in some of the acting. But, other than that, I loved the concept, plot, friendships, and relationships. Ultimately became one of my favorites to watch. My Favorite Scene: The whole bar scene.Starring: Steven Strait, Sebastian Stan, Laura Ramsey, Taylor Kitsch, Jessica Lucas, Toby Hemingway, Chace Crawford, and Kyle Schmid.Where to watch: Hulu I'm sure there are more movies that I missed.
