My Thoughts on Little (Movie Review)

*Synopsis*

The premise of Little is simple enough. Our main character, Jordan, goes to sleep grown and wakes up little. It’s not only strange, but also inconvenient for this tech mogul.

Jordan is not someone to be messed with. From an early age she realized that to avoid being bullied, she had to become the bully. She’s had to step on a lot of toes to get where she is today.

Now, she’s the head a huge tech company and she’s making some serious bank. I’m talking top penthouse suite kind of money. But that money can’t buy happiness, or the love of her coworkers. They completely fear her, and that’s how Jordan likes it. Her assistant, April, is at Jordan’s beck and call.

After messing with the wrong little girl, Jordan has some black girl magic thrown in her face. The next morning, she wakes up thirteen again, aka the worst time of her life. She calls in April to help her figure out how to get back to grown Jordan and the story goes on from there.

*My Thoughts*

I’ve been waiting for this movie to come out for months now, especially after hearing Marsai Martin produced it. I went to see it with a group and we had a great time. It’s definitely one of those movies that appeals to a broad audience. There’s a cute message at the end and everything’s tied up nicely. I’m hoping to see more movies from Martin’s company.

Two for Tuesday: April Flowers

Two for Tuesday is a weekly tag I host here on my blog. If you’re interested in joining, just let me know and I’ll add you to the list of participants. This week’s prompt is two books that have flowery language.

My first pick literally has a flower on the cover. You can’t get more flowery than that.

the sun and her flowers by Rupi Kaur

I got the sun and her flowers as a birthday gift a few years ago. I immediately devoured it. Poetry just has a way of connecting to my pain in ways I didn’t know possible. I haven’t gotten around to reading her first book, Milk and Honey. Hopefully, I’ll finally get to it this summer.

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun is Also a Star is a beautiful story. The language is very flowery at times, but completely understandable. It’s one of those books that has resonated with me ever since I finished it.

I’m surprised both of my picks for this month have sun in the title. But then again, you can’t have flowers with sunshine.

What are some of your favorite flowery books?

Captain Marvel (Movie Review)

Captain Marvel is the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It details the story of Carol Danvers and her journey to becoming a powerful superhero. The movie takes place in the 90’s, so get ready for some serious nostalgia.


My Thoughts

First things first, this movie was absolutely AMAZING and I think everyone should go out and see it if they’re able. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film. I loved it and there’s a high chance that I’ll go see it again, which is truly rare for me. I think this is a movie that’s better to go into knowing less.

My Thoughts on The Upside

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. I think he and Bryan Cranston did a great job portraying these roles. Just because they were playing serious roles, doesn’t mean there weren’t a bunch of good laughs thrown in.
