Short AF Movie Review | Dolittle

 


Hey guys, so today I'm going to be doing a review on the movie "Dolittle". As usual this review is going to be short and sweet (like the title suggests) and spoiler free (however there will be the IMDB synopsis in this and sometimes they can contain spoilers, however 9/10 times they don't. It's just something to keep in mind if you're planning on watching the series.)




"A physician who can talk to animals embarks on an adventure to find a legendary island with a young apprentice and a crew of strange pets"


So once again this movie is one I wanted to watch due to seeing the trailer in the cinema. I love Robert Downey Jr and I also loved Dr Doolittle with Eddie Murphy in when we were children. I didn't know what to expect of this movie other than he was going to be a doctor who could speak to animals. This movie is definitely much more than that. I loved the adventure that the characters went on and found the acting in the movie amazing. Even though I haven't watched the original Dolittle movie I felt a huge sense of nostalgia whilst watching. Me and James could not take our eyes off the tv whilst watching this. I definitely recommend this movie to everyone, especially if you want a family movie night. The movie is so whimsical and nostalgic that anyone who watches it will love it.


My favourite characters in this movie: 


- Poly: I love Poly and her sass so much. She honestly is my favourite character in the whole movie

- Chee - Chee: Look an anxious gorilla is honestly my most favourite thing in the world. Watching him through the whole movie and his character development made me so happy.


My least favourite characters in this movie:


- Dr. John Dolittle: Okay it was hard to find a least favourite character in this movie, but if I had to choose one it would definitely be Dr Dolittle. Hear me out, he's just so, selfish. It doesn't really change throughout the movie either. Don't get me wrong, he gets slightly better but his main character development is just very slow for me. I loved him in all other aspects though!


This movie is so wonderful and whimsical and I definitely recommend watching it!


What did you think of the movie? Who were your favourite and least favourite characters? Do you have any movies, series or books you'd recommend for me to watch/read or want me to do a short AF review on? Please let me know down in the comments below!


As always, have a wonderful day.

Short Af Movie Review | Charlie's Angels (2019)


Hey guys, so today I'm going to be doing a review on the 2019 movie "Charlie's Angels". As usual this review is going to be short and sweet (like the title suggests) and spoiler free (however there will be the iMDB synopsis in this and sometimes they contain spoilers, however 9/10 times they don't. It's just something to keep in mind if you're planning on watching the series.)



"When a young systems engineer blows the whistle on a dangerous technology, Charlie's Angels are called into action, putting their lives on the line to protect us all."

The reasoning for me wanting to see this movie is that I saw the trailer for this in the cinema and thought it looked amazing. I loved the 2000's Charlie's Angels and was excited to see this reboot. This movie is definitely all based around girl power and how strong women can be. I loved the new casting and honestly found myself laughing a lot during this. This movie definitely has a lot of twists and turns and I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the 2000's Charlie's Angels (hey even if you didn't, try this one, you might enjoy it more!). It's definitely one I have saved to my watchlist on nowtv to watch again.

My favourite characters in the movie:

- Sabina Wilson: Okay so I'm not someone who dislikes Kristen Stewart's acting, her first role for me was in Zathura and I loved her in that and I definitely love her in this. I just love how unapologetic Sabina is and she was honestly my favourite.

- Boz: I can't say too much about Boz without any spoilers I just love how her character was portrayed and keeps you on your toes.

- Langston: Langston is just baby. Enough said.

My least favourite characters in the movie:

- Jonny Smith: I just found him generally annoying throughout the movie but I guess that's how his character is supposed to be written, still, if I had to pick a least favourite it would be him.

I loved this movie a lot and if you have the chance to please watch it!

What did you think of the movie? Who were your favourite and least favourite characters? Do you have any movies, series or books you'd recommend for me to watch/read or want me to do a short AF review on? Please let me know down in the comments below!


As always, have a wonderful day.

Short AF Movie Review | Birds Of Prey


Hey guys, so today I'm going to be doing a review on the movie "Birds Of Prey". As usual this review is going to be short and sweet (like the title suggests) and spoiler free (however there will be the IMDB synopsis in this and sometimes they contain spoilers however 9/10 times they don't. It's just something to keep in mind if you're planning on watching the series.)



"After splitting with the Joker, Harley Quinn joins superheroes Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya to save a young girl from an evil crime lord."

So believe it or not I was one of the very few people who enjoyed Harley Quinn in the movie "Suicide Squad" so I was super excited to hear that a movie mainly revolving around her was coming out. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and loved that there were a lot of bad ass female leads within it. The only complaint I would have about this movie is that the second half of the movie seemed to move very quickly. The cinematography in the movie is beautiful and I love that some of the things that happen in it are very realistic if this was in fact, real life. This movie is action packed and I will definitely be watching this again!

My favourite characters in the movie:
- Black Canary: Black canary is honestly such a beautiful character and I adore her. I love how badass she is throughout the movie and how she holds herself.
- The huntress: The huntress made me laugh so much, not in a bad way, I just love her personality so much but I also really love May Winstead so maybe I'm just bias.

My least favourite characters in the movie:
- Victor Zsasz: Okay so I don't like this guy because he's super creepy. He just makes me really uncomfortable. Great villain though.

I loved this movie so much and if you're into the DC/Marvel movies I would definitely recommend it!

What did you think of the movie? Who were your favourite and least favourite characters? Do you have any movies, series or books you'd recommend for me to watch/read or want me to do a short AF review on? Please let me know down in the comments below!

As always, have a wonderful day.

The Blogger Tag

 


Hey guys, so I'm not gonna lie to you, the reason I'm doing the bloggers tag today is because I was supposed to utilise yesterday to write some more short AF reviews and instead ended up finding the owner for a stray dog. So today we'll be doing the blogger tag. I found this on Bournemouth Girl's blog and I thought it would be fun to answer the questions.. So lets jump straight into it.


Do you have any pets, if so what are they and what are they called?

I have a dog called Ozzy, you can find out more about him in the pet tag I did the other week.


What is your favourite social media for blogging?

I really enjoy twitter, I appreciate how much support you can get through it from other bloggers as well as the ability to find more people to share your content with through blogging retweets.


How tall are you?

I am 5ft 5 inches!


Do you have a hidden talent, if so what?

I can do the cup song (but I think after pitch perfect everyone can now).


What is your biggest blog - related pet peeve?

I don't think I have one (yet). 


What is your biggest non - blog related pet peeve?

People who are rude or bitchy. I'm too old to deal with it.


What is your favourite way to spend your free time when you are alone?

My favourite way to spend my free time is to play animal crossing or reading.


What is your favourite junk food?

I love a good big mac and some chicken nuggets from Mcdonalds.


If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

7up free cherry flavour,


What's your favourite movie?

I'd have to say my favourite movie is probably Hocus Pocus (yes I know it's a halloween movie, but I want that spook all year around.)


What were your favourite lessons in school?

Definitely maths and ethics & philosophy.


What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

I don't really know of many bloggers at the moment! So I don't secretly wanna be best friends with anyone!


Who is your biggest inspiration?

My mother and Oma.


What is one of your favourite highstreet shops?

Definitely TK Maxx, they always have the best candles. As for clothes being a plus size woman I don't really shop on the high street as there are not that many options for me.


Are you in education or work?

At this current time I am in neither.


What are your favourite fiction and non - fiction books?

My favourite fiction is Pet Semetary by Stephen King. I don't believe I've actually read on a non fiction book in a while so I couldn't honestly tell you.


Where is one place you would like to visit?

Japan.


Where do you like to write your blog posts?

I write my blog posts on the big cuddle sofa I have in my lounge. I like to be super cosy.


I tag anyone who wants to do this post.


I hope you learned a little bit more about me. What is a cool fact about you? Are you a blogger? Post your links down in the comments below so I can give you a follow!


As always, have a wonderful day.


Love, Lyndsay

Short AF Series Review | She - Ra And The Princesses Of Power


 Hey guys, so today I'm going to be doing a review on the TV series "She - Ra And The Princesses Of Power". As usual this review is going to be short and sweet (like the title suggests) and spoiler free (however there will be the IMDB synopsis in this and sometimes they contain spoilers however 9/10 times they don't. Its just something to keep in mind if you're planning on watching the series.)



"She - Ra, Princess of Power, leads a rebellion to free her land of Etheria from the monstrous invaders the Horde."

So as most 90's kids I watched the originals of these when I was younger (as they used to rerun a lot of 80's cartoons) so when I saw there was a reboot I obviously thought what everyone else who originally watched thought "they're going to ruin a classic show". Man, I was wrong. I love this series so much and I am devastated that it came to an end (even though it ended perfectly). The art is beautiful in this series and so are all of the characters. I love how inclusive this tv series is and how wonderful the story of all their friendships are. This series is very wholesome and I would definitely recommend this to everyone. 

My favourite characters in the series:
- Spinerella: Spinerella is the plus sized babe we need in every tv series. If you know me you know I cosplay and it's nice finding people that look like you to cosplay. I love her relationship with her wife and I just adore her all around.
- Catra: I adore Catra so much, she starts off as the character that you love to hate but her backstory is heartbreaking and I'm so happy how her character development went and where she ended up in the series.
- Bow: Bow is just a wonderful character all around, just watch the series, you'll see what I mean!

My least favourite characters in the series:
- Mermista: Look, I still love her but in certain parts of the series she just gets slightly annoying and has a very edgier than you attitude.
- Shadow weaver: Shadow weaver makes for such a good bad guy in the fact that everything about her makes you wanna hate her. 

I adored this series and I wish it never ended but unfortunately all good things must come to an end! If you get a chance to please watch the series!

What did you think of the series? Who were you favourite and least favourite characters? Do you have any movies, series or books you'd recommend for me to watch/read or want me to do a short AF review on? Please let me know down in the comments below!

As always, have a wonderful day.
