Hello my lovely pumpkins! Today, I am sharing with you my monthly movie reviews. This month I got to watch Harriet, IT Chapter Two and Ad Astra. I didn’t get the chance to watch more movies because I was overwhelmed with work and university but I hope to catch up this month. And, I am actually watching the Joker tomorrow night, yay!
Anyway, if you want to know my honest thoughts on these three movies then keep on reading! And, don’t forget to check out my previous post: EUPHORIA GEMSTONES MAKEUP LOOK
Movies I watched in September 2019 – From Worst To Best
Harriet  3/5
“The extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes, whose courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history.”
“Harriet” is an inspiring and educating movie, it’s the kind of movie I would watch one time and feel content with it. It is a touching story revolving around the power of black women. It is an important yet basic biography story and for that, I wish they told the story in a more poetic way to distinguish it from other biography movies about slavery. Moreover, the visuals were beautiful but not unique. On another hand, Cynthia Erivo’s performance was breath-taking and she was able to deliver the importance of Harriet’s quest and beliefs which made this movie very lovable and enjoyable. I really enjoyed watching it and would recommend it for those who are interested in watching it. Other than that, it is not a must-watch.
IT: Chapter two  3/5

“Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.”
“IT Chapter two” is a disappointment compared to the first one. I enjoyed seeing my favorite monster on the big screen but I felt like they did not let Pennywise shine with Bill Skarsgard outstanding performance. Unlike, the first one, the storyline was less magical, interesting and capturing. On the other hand, I did enjoy the cast as grown-ups, they are as charming and hilarious as the kids. So, I think they made an amazing choice with the cast. Moreover, some scenes were really iconic and memorable (e.g. the dinner scene was amazing!). Even though the ending was satisfying and consisted of a beautiful closure for the story, I wish they lingered more on the myth behind Pennywise and the ritual itself, rather than the character’s fears and remorse. We had already explored that in the first one so I thought it was a waste of time. In general, I would definitely recommend it if you are a fan of horror movies and/or loved the first one!
Ad Astra  4/5
“Ad Astra” is a magnificent cinematic experience and remarkable space drama. It contains some of the most beautiful and most memorable shots in cinema history. It visually dazzled me and kept me in “awe”. I think James Gray did an amazing job at exploring different ways of filming “in space”, I actually felt like it was all new to me! The performance of Brad Pitt is another amazing aspect of this film. The movie focuses on the unique bound between father and son, the internal struggle that Roy is going through as a hard-working astronaut and absent husband and Brad Pitt was able to deliver that perfectly well. Storywise, James Gray doesn’t explore anything new but it is still worth telling.
4/5: Very Good
1/5: VERY bad!
That’s it for these mini movie reviews. I hope you enjoyed reading them and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog.
