Reviewing Some Films I Watched #9

Every Day (2018)

IMDb Synopsis

A shy teenager falls for someone who transforms into another person every day.

My Review

I had been meaning to watch this film ever since I read the novel last year but, I only just got to it earlier this month.

I loved the actress they chose for Rhiannon, she couldn’t have been more perfect. I admit, I would have been completely confused if I had went into this blindly though. ‘A’ is so ambiguous that it could be bothersome for some people– the kind who need all the answers. I was able to let all the questions go and just enjoy the ride…

The concept of ‘A’ and his first love is beautiful, heart-breaking, and a little comedic. It was interesting to see all the different actors and actresses portray the same character and to see Rhiannon form the same chemistry with each one. The novel and film were both done equally well but, I still hate the ending to both.

Dog Days (2018)

IMDb Synopsis

A group of interconnected people in Los Angeles are brought together by their lovely canine counterparts.

My Review

I absolutely adore films like this one. It was done like He’s Just Not That Into You and Valentine’s Day where different couples with seemingly separate lives actually are intertwined in one way or another.

The unique thing about the couples in Dog Days, though, was that they all had a doggy companion. πŸ˜€ My favorite was Sam!! He was so dang adorable. I also loved his owner’s story the best. I do wish that some things had went differently… but, I thought the whole film was just extremely cute and fun to watch the entire time.

Girl in Progress (2012)

IMDb Synopsis

As single mom Grace juggles work, bills, and her affair with a married doctor, her daughter, Ansiedad, plots a shortcut to adulthood after finding inspiration in the coming-of-age stories she’s reading for school.

My Review

Aww, poor baby Ansiedad. I totally get why she goes off the rails. My heart kept breaking for her, over and over. In this film, she comes up with her own “coming-of-age” story map to follow after learning about them in English class. While everything she has written down on her “to-do” list sounds insane when said aloud– they were truly steps we all took when we were in her stage in life. What she goes through, the bizarre, hurtful things she does… they were all mandatory for her to grow up and learn. And for her mother to do so, too.

The Dirt (2019)

IMDb Synopsis

The story of how MΓΆtley CrΓΌe came to be one of the most notorious rock ‘n roll groups in history.

My Review

Whoa, talk about HARDCORE. I read Nikki Sixx’s Heroin Diaries in high school and I have always considered it one of my favorite memoirs. Originally, I heard of The Dirt because of my love for MGK though. He played the drummer, Tommy Lee, and I have to say… I was impressed with how big his role was. He actually did extremely well in it and you’ll see just how well in the end credits, where they first show him and then the real Tommy Lee coming out of the trailer, saying the same line. In fact, all four men were absolutely perfect.

Motley Crue’s career was at times inspirational and at other times, completely shameful but, in the end, they pulled through and stuck together to be the great band that EVERYONE knows. Each one of them went through some terrible shit in their lives, things I couldn’t even ever imagine happening to me. It’s no wonder at all that they are who they are today.

  2. I haven’t seen any of these movies. I think I might give The Dirt a watch. I didn’t even realize it was on Netflix! I thought I read online that it was a Hulu movie (which I don’t have), but I saw the photo here said Netflix. I logged on and watched the trailer, and it does look pretty good. I grew up listening to classic rock and 80’s music, but Motley Crue was never one of my favorites. I really like MGK too, so I kinda wanna watch it just for him. πŸ˜› One of my favorite similar style movies is The Runaways that came out back in 2010 with Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. Did you see that one?

    1. I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of Motley Crue’s music but I have heard all of their songs hundreds of times. Sometimes not even knowing it was them! MGK did so well, I didn’t think he’d have as many lines as he did! ❀

      I remember when Runaways came out but I don't think I ever watched it & I totally forgot about it. I wanna watch it!! Do you know if it's on Netflix?

          1. It’s not as outrageous as The Dirt, but I actually like it better. I think mainly because it’s all females and I’m about girl power lol. Plus I love their music.

  3. I’ve heard of a few but never actually watched them. I dont have enough time in my day to watch movies. Were trying to watch less TV during the week at least for CL’s sake 😦 lol. But I like the sound of every day I do remember your book review and it was something that sounded interesting

    1. Sometimes I pause movies in the middle of them and watch them throughout a few days because it’s hard for me to sit that long. But when I get into a funk before my period, all I want to do is watch TV so that’s usually when I watch a ton of movies in one sitting lol.

      Every Day was so interesting. It’s not that long of a film either!
