My Thoughts on The Upside

Comment 1 Standard

I went to see The Upside with my mom a couple weeks ago and we had a great time. This isn’t going to be a full review, just a few of my thoughts.

I felt a little iffy about going to see The Upside, but my brother mentioned that this was one of Kevin Hart’s first really serious roles.

The Greatest Showman (Movie Review)

Comments 2 Standard

The Greatest Showman is a loose biographical film about P. T. Barnum and his role as an American Showman. It follows his journey from being the host of a museum of odd things to being the leader of a circus.

I watched The Greatest Showman on the plane ride home from New York a couple months ago. The flight was at 11 so it wasn’t the best time for napping. I had meant to watch this movie while in theaters but never got the chance. Boy, am I glad I didn’t waste my money.

*Synopsis*

Goodreads:

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate.
