I Feel Pretty

The comedy I Feel Pretty seems to target a specific audience and based off some reactions I’ve seen, I think if the trailer doesn’t appeal to you, you might not want to see it.

The film stars Amy Schumer as Renee. Renee works for an “IT Girl” style makeup company called Lilly Le Claire. The catch is she works in a basement off site for the Technology Department. Renee is portrayed as the typical girl who has friends and a happy life but wants more. She wants what’s advertised as the conventional beauty and conventional success story.

After a montage of things going wrong for Renee opens the film, we she her watching a film which causes her to run out into the rain and wish to be beautiful. Followed by her throwing a coin into the fountain in front of her. The next morning she attends Soul Cycle and falls off her bike and hits her head. This results in Renee gaining an indescribable amount of confidence and going about her life as if she has a new body that no one can recognize as hers. To the bewilderment of her friends, and all those she interacts with, no one questions it. From there hilarity ensues, and I Feel Pretty is a good ride. I do however have a few problems with the film.

The Miracle Season

I left this screening telling my friends they had to go to see this, and I’d say the same to those of you reading this.

A Wrinkle in Time

Is A Wrinkle in Time as epic as the hype makes it seem?

This movie addresses a lot of serious issues for children middle school age and above. I would highly recommend it for all ages and even recommend seeing it with an adult because it’s a movie that could spark a lot of discussion.

This movie in the sense of plot and how vibrant it is really is no different from any other Disney movie out or coming out soon. Disney has a brand, and it works.
