My ‘Saturday Night Live’ Overview

Last night Season 44 of Saturday Night Live debuted with Adam Driver hosting and Kanye West providing the music. So, of course, since my favorite Dark Side baddie was back to being silly on Saturday Night Live I wasn’t going to miss it and I’m here to share with you my overview of the episode. Enjoy!

Matt Damon Steals the Show

Before Adam Driver could even start his opening monologue Saturday Night LIve began with a bang with Matt Damon surprising everyone as he portrayed Brett Kavanaugh in a hilarious parody of Thursday’s Senate hearings. If you missed it here it is.

My Partial Review of ‘Ocean’s 8’

This past summer a star-studded all-female cast tackled one of the greatest heist series in recent memory–the Ocean’s movies–with their own take on the classic heist tale. Sandra Bullock stars as Danny Ocean’s sister, Debbie Ocean, and the rest is history.

I tried to watch this movie last night but it was so boring I couldn’t even finish it. One of the reasons why I love the Ocean’s trilogy is because of the unique cinematography and the directorial view of Steven Soderbergh. Ocean’s 8 doesn’t have that in the slightest.

The music isn’t good, the plot is horrendously boring, and like I said before, I couldn’t even finish it. The screenwriters thought they were writing a smart script but it came off as stale and dry. The characters weren’t thoughtfully written or memorable.

All in all, once again a remake starring an all-female leading cast failed to deliver. It seems so strange that most popular films starring men never seem to suffer from bad writing or stale plot points. From Ghostbusters to Ocean’s 8, however, these all-female reboots are simply embarrassing to behold. Hopefully the next Terminator movie, which is boasting three female leads, will be the first female-led film with a legitimately fantastic storyline.

I’m giving this film a 71 out of a 100 and 2 out of 5 stars. This movie is the definition of boring.

I thank you for reading my review and I hope you have a fantastic day.

Who’s Your Favorite X-Men Character?

The X-Men are an awesome array of unique characters with incredible abilities. It’s only until recently that I’ve begun to actually care and pay attention to the different heroes and I have to say, they’re pretty awesome. Their movies aren’t as great or easy to follow (timeline-wise) as the MCU movies but if you like superheroes there are tons of heroes to get behind in this franchise. With this many cool characters to enjoy there will always be debate of who’s the best of the X-Men. And that’s why they are the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are the characters.

(My X-Men knowledge is limited so I will be listing the mainstream characters that I know.)

Cyclops

cyclops

Cyclops has always been a cool character because of his interesting eye beam ability and the same can still be said from this most recent rendition of the character. While I don’t know much about the X-Men I knew who Cyclops was in my younger age and that shows the impact this hero had on me as a child.

Mystique

mystique

Mystique is easily one of the coolest concepts of a character in the superhero world. The fact that she’s this shape-shifting alien-ish sort of being is remarkable awesome and it’s what makes her so cool. She’s also a great fighter as well. All in all, Mystique is pretty cool.
