“Sisters”

 Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-star in this universal Studios comedy about a pair of 30 year old sisters who find out that their parents are selling their house. And they then decide to spend one last fun, rowdy weekend in the house. Sisters is rated R (sexual content, strong language and drug use), the genre is comedy and drama. The movie was directed by Jason Moore and wire ten by: Paula Pell. It came out in theaters Dec 18 and the run time is 1 hour and 58 minutes. Cast: Tina Fey as Kate Ellis, Amy Poehler as Maura Ellis, Maya Rudolph as Brinda, Ike Barinholte as James, John Leguizamo as Dave, James Brolin as Bucky Ellis, Dianne Weist as Deanne Ellisand Madison Davenport as Haley. Rotten Tomatoes gave Sisters 60% which is 6 out of 10.”Sisters is a sharp Belen of pathos and vulgarity along with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s effervescent chemistry, are more than enough to make up for the handful of laughs this coming-of-age comedy leaves on the table. Peter Bradshaw from The Guardian said “Sisters is the kind of broad feel-good comedy that’s made to look easy by Poehler and Fey, who breeze through the funny test and the Bechdel test and show that the female-female dynamic, so recently considered almost gravitationally impossible in comedy, works very well. Fey and Poehler get laughs with the smart, incorrect dialogue, their timing, the easy swing of their relationship, their ingrained song’n’dance relish for the material.”

 I went to the movie theaters a couple of weeks ago with my friend and went and saw Sisters. I have never laughed so hard in my life. I was snorting and had tears coming out of my eyes. I defiantly recommend this movie to anyone who wants to have a good laugh. It was a fantastic movie and Tina and Amy were hilarious and did a splendid job. I rate this movie 90% which is 9 out of 10.

The Girl Behind The Name

After her death in 2011 the world seemed to know everything imageabout her, but The Girl Behind The Name had something else to say. It unravels the tightly twisted tail of troubled stars only to show the normal girl with an extraordinary talent that was at the base of it all, Amy Winehouse. Director and the man who made it happen, Asif Kapadia, picked up the idea of the film in 2013, two years after the singer’s death and announced it’s upcoming release in early 2015. Even after years, the remorse felt over her death was still raw causing it to be one of the highest grossing british documentary ever.

“25” 

After Adele’s album “21” was released in 2011 she considered quitting the music industry. But instead she decided to take a “hiatus and raise her son. While on her break Adele suffered from writers block. She feared that she might lose her ability to write songs. In 2013 she had a breakthrough and she started writing songs for new album “25” and she continued writing and recording to 2015. Her first song off her album was “Hello” and was released in October 23, 2015 world-wide. “25” Tracklist:

1. Hello (Adele & Greg Kurstin)

2. Send my love (To your new lover)(Adele & Max Martin)

3. I miss you (Adele, Paul Epworth & Shellback)

4. When we were young (Adele & Tobias Jesso Jr.)

5. Remedy (Adele & Ryan Tedder)

6. Water under the bridge (Adele & Greg Kurstin)

7. River Lea (Adele & Brian Burton)

8. Love in the dark (Adele & Samuel Dixon)

9. Million Years ago (Adele & Greg Kurstin)

10. All I ask (Adele, Bruno Mars & Phillip Lawrence)

11. Sweetest Devotion (Adele & Paul Epworth) 

Adele said she might go country for her next album because she wants it to be quite acoustic and piano-led. “I want to write it all, record it all, produce it all and master it on my own. I think it’ll take a lot longer because I want to do it this way.” Adele is different from all these people for a lot of reasons, most of which are of the fact that she doesn’t make dance music. Adele is different from so many artists. Her lyrics are so meaningful and powerful especially with her beautiful smooth voice. My thoughts on this album are INCREDIBLE, FANTASTIC. I love Adele to death her lyrics stand out to me and she’s such a beautiful person. My favorite song on “25” is Send my love (To your new lover). Just the way she puts the lyrics and the instruments with it is such a beautiful song. I give “25” a 9/10.

Saying Goodbye

January 10, 2016 was the day that the world seemed to start turning lopsided on its imageaxis even though it was a regular day. The sun rose, the old folks read their paper, and I made my way to school, but it was the day the world lost one of it’s brightest stars, David Bowie, leaving it a little darker. After a long and secret battle with liver cancer the singer passed away early that morning surrounded by his loving family. Millions were left devastated as the man who sung the songs that were stuck in their heads for years passed away.
