Review Tall Girl movie – Netflix product

The film “Tall Girl” is about Jodi – a girl who is 1m86 tall always wants to blend in with the crowd, disgusted by others paying attention to her because of her height. Jodi just wants to be “a girl” and not “a tall girl”.

The movie basically has a similar pattern to other High School movies like: “THE DUFF”, “Easy A”, “Mean Girls“, … But maybe because of the moment, “Tall Girl” brought More emotions for me than ever before. There are beautiful lines that are hard to imagine, among them is when Jodi’s sister, who has been a “beauty queen” since the age of 6, told her sister, “You mean more to. me than any stupid crown “, when Jodi’s father stood in front of her room and said” I only want to say that I love you “, or the scene where Dunkleman fantasizes about the day Jodi falls in love with a guy other than him, she will want to wear high heels, and when across the block The streets to find a pair that suits him, and then, when he’s too powerless to search, Jodi will remember the shoes he gave.

Tall Girl Movie

In the last scene, when Jodi wore high heels, wore a high collar and suit to the night of the prom, I was a bit spicy. The film does not convey much more than the message of “loving yourself” and encourages us to escape from being shy of our own shortcomings, but sometimes they are not even blemishes. The film did very well in this submission, without any instruction or exhortation. It all comes from emotions.

The message that she constantly hears from friends and family is to wear high heels – but it’s hard to ignore the trait that defines her point of view and (she feels) distracts her. forget in society. Supporting each other in friendship and family is praised in this movie as a need to gain self-esteem. With the right heart, the film can tell teenagers who feel marginalized, isolated or even bullied need to be confident in themselves. Only when we are confident in ourselves can we receive true love from everyone around us.


Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Watch ‘Flipped’

Have you watched ‘Flipped’? If you have not yet, I highly recommend it for many good reasons.

1. The valuable lessons

The film is going to teach you that love is not only about physical intimacy (kissing, etc.) or the look. It is beyond that. From the director and author’s point of view, it will remind you of your young love that might be the purest, sweetest and most innocent ever.

On the other hand, kids today seem not to realize how beautiful it is. That is why, when the ending of the film approaches, many viewers feel disappointed. They want more and more. Not all, they hope a sequel is available. Still, the movie author shared that she desired to keep the characters’ innocence. 

2. Fantastic characters

Many may love Bryce Loski’s character. He may look coward, but he is indeed too shy to chat with a girl. Can I call it cute and sweet? Do you barely see boys that act so nowadays? Many of them do not show enough respect for girls.

Here, the film portrays Juli Baker as a normal girl. She is weird to some people. And no one does not know that she has a special feeling for Bryce for a long time. When looking deeper into this character, you will find her to be reliable, honest, and loyal. Her heart is full of love for the beautiful nature.

3. The ending

The film ending cannot be better. What makes the main lead loves Bryce this time is not his smiles or eyes but his personality. Juli likes him because of what is inside him instead of his handsome appearance.

Overall

‘Flipped’ is full of pureness and simplicity. At the same time, it delivers moral lessons of love, honesty, and understanding. Watch it not to regret later!

Elton John said Michael Jackson was mentally ill

Elton John‘s ME was published in the US on October 15, but some of the content was revealed first. In the book, the singer recounts the last encounters with Michael Jackson, before the “king of pop” died of drug shock in 2009. “I knew MJ when he was 13, 14 years old – when he was a child In the last years of his life, Michael isolates himself from the world, only God knows what kind of medicine he thinks of and what drugs he uses. I write these lines with sympathy. Michael is clearly mentally ill and makes people around annoying, “Elton John said.

According to Elton, Michael did not receive help from colleagues and friends. “He just wants to hear the words going on,” he wrote. The singer also said that Michael Jackson avoided interacting with friends, preferring to play with children in the last years. At a party at his home, Elton saw Michael go out to play video games with his maid’s son. Michael looks skinny and emaciated. The male singer did not touch the food served at the party.

The NY Times says the autobiography ME reveals many of Elton John’s life stories such as getting married, adoption, and relationships with famous artists like Freddie Mercury and John Lennon … “I wrote the book, so that when I die, the children can read and learn the truth about their fathers, “Elton said.

Vanessa Kirby – the actress that stirred up Hollywood summer movies (Part 2)

However, on the screen, Vanessa has been famous for three years now. The turning point of her career was The Crown (2016) series, about the life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy). Vanessa’s character is Princess Margaret – sister Elizabeth II. On the Guardian, she said tormenting the incarnation of a character with a lot of fame.

Why do women hang Margaret’s photos in the bedroom, wondering in what situations the princess will behave? In reality, Margaret is considered a British royal controversial figure, addicted to smoking, drinking alcohol and having sex with many men.

She is also perceived as difficult to approach, or to disregard others. Vanessa said how to play characters easily is to mimic her negative attitude. However, she wanted to go deeper and reveal Margaret’s personality before she became uncomfortable. “I want to find the pain under those expressions,” she said. Kirby’s performance was praised and helped her win the women’s drama series at BAFTA in 2018 (Britain’s most important film award).

Close action is an unexpected turn for Vanessa Kirby. During Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, Vanessa said there was no physical well-being, often to the end of school run tests, and no experience of acting before Mission: Impossile – Fallout. “My most powerful scene in The Crown is just stabbing a cigarette into a sandwich,” she told Rolling Stone.

However, Tom Cruise chose the female star to be impressed by his role in The Crown. The American actor also helped her improve her understanding of action movies. “I don’t understand anything about adventure until I see Tom on the set. You have to be an athlete and a dancer. The battle scene is like learning ballet,” she said.

In last year’s blockbuster, Kirby had a knife fight scene. In Hobbs & Shaw, her action sequences are significantly greater with running, jumping and melee displays. She practiced three hours a day, three days a week, for six weeks.

Vanessa Kirby – the actress that stirred up Hollywood summer movies (Part 1)

Actress Vanessa Kirby never thought of acting before she was invited to “Mission: Impossible 6”, “Fast & Furious 9”.

When Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw premiered, Vanessa Kirby impressed Hattie Shaw. On IMDb, she is the fifth highest-rated actor globally this week, higher than both her co-stars Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson in the film. Her character is a special agent, younger sister Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), attracted by beauty and has many scenes fighting in the evil confrontation of Brixton (Idris Elba).

Recent “action” is often associated with Vanessa. Last summer, she starred in Tom Cruise’s blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Fallout as the boss of the arms trade. This year, the beauty born in 1988 is the heroine in an episode of the world’s top-selling action brand. The Ringer commented that she was worthy of the action star, Rolling Stone even called Kirby “the new action hero of the summer”.

At the start of her career, Vanessa never thought she would become “a woman”, like sharing on Rolling Stone: “I am not the type of action movie actor. I am a stage-loving girl in London.” The female star grew up in Wimbledon (England) in a well-off family, whose father was the famous doctor Roger Kirby and his mother was the editor of Country Living magazine. On the Guardian, Vanessa says there is a happy childhood with good social and economic conditions. However, she said she was bullied at school and contracted a parasitic disease from 9 to 11 years old, making her often nauseous.

Her father regularly takes her daughter to watch movies, plays, and helps her to foster artistic love. Vanessa is passionate about drama, has performed many plays during her school days and stole pictures of actor Ben Whishaw as Hamlet (Shakespeare’s character in the same name) at school.

Vanessa has been acting professionally since 2010, both in the theater and film sectors, primarily with a psychological role. From the beginning of her career, she was “immersed” in the praise of acting. As Rosalind in the drama As You Like It (2010), the beauty was praised by Guardian as “outstanding talent”. With The Acid Test in Royal Court (London, England), Vanessa was written by Paul Taylor of the Independent as “an unprecedented star”. She won four awards for drama from 2010 to 2015.
