Huge Trigger Warnings: Anorexia, Bulimia, Purging,“Thinspiration”, Miscarriage.

To the Bone is a Netflix Original Movie about a girl named Ellen ( Lily Collins) . A 20 year old woman struggling with anorexia nervosa. In the midst of family problems and her own fears, she is accepted into a group home run by an unusual doctor (Keanu Reeves). Through the people she meets and the journey she takes, Ellen follows a path of self discovery and acceptance that will lead her to a surprising place she never would have thought possible.

Just finished To The Bone,and I sit here in tears, I needed to talk about the movie. Say what you will about this movie but I loved it. This film doesn’t romanticize eating disorders! It show’s how scary they are. It shows how they can become an unhealthy obsession that controls every aspect of your life! Lily Collins is an amazing actress, but I find it crazy how they made her lose weight for this movie knowing she had an eating disorder in the past. But forcing her to lose weight it could have been dangerous for her, possibly causing a relapse.

This movie was hard at times to watch, but that doesn’t mean that people shouldn’t watch it. It is triggering to some but I think the awareness of the sicknesses needs to be shown so people can witness the thought process and the feelings being experienced by someone struggling with Anorexia or Bulimia. One of the things I felt was un-necessary was the romance, it did not need to be included.

“Stop waiting for life to be easy. Stop hoping for somebody to save you. You don’t need another person lying to you. Things don’t all add up. But you are resilient. Face some hard facts and you could have an incredible life.”

Mental health is just as, if not more important than physical health. People overlook mental health because they cannot see it therefore they don’t think it’s that important. But if more people were educated on mental health I think society would view it differently. Just because there is no physical pain docent mean a person is not in pain.

P.S: To anyone who’s dealing with any kind of mental disorder, illness or is just having a bad time, BE STRONG.

Green Room- Review

imagesGreen Room 2015

Directed by Jeremy Saulnier

Starring: Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin, and Patrick Stewart.

I’ve wanted to watch this ever since word came out about it last year. Green Room’ more than lived up to the hype. Gruesome, intense, and just downright crazy. I can’t really figure out how to express how much I loved watching this film.

From the start of the movie it sets a tone, is a horror thriller about a punk band that is held captive at a skinhead venue after witnessing staff members commit a murder. The casting was phenomenal, was very sad to hear that Anton Yelchin passed away last month, he carried this movie. Surviving isn’t easy when your opponent’s got shotguns, revolvers, box knives and bulldogs. Some scenes were very graphic,but there wasn’t violence just being thrown around. I didn’t expect it to end the way it did.

The setting is absolutely awesome and contributes to the gloomy atmosphere. It accomplished everything it needed to perfectly. If your looking for an intense brutal thriller then definitely pick this one up, it dose not disappoint.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Review

neighbors-2Genre: Comedy
Release Date: May 20,2016
Runtime: 1h. 32 mins
MPAA Rating: R
Rating: 4.5 Stars

After the events of the 2014 film, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are expecting another child and trying to sell their house, getting an offer and having to wait for a 30-day escrow period to pass before the sale can be finalized. Meanwhile, Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz) and fellow college freshmen are joining a sorority, only to learn that only fraternities can party. So they rent the house next door to Mac and Kelly.

This movie was absolutely hilarious!! Don’t listen to all the haters. I couldn’t stop laughing during the whole movie. Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne all return, to their starring roles; and they’re joined this time by Chloe Grace Moretz (in the new antagonistic neighbor role). My god I love Zac Efron, he is so amazing as Teddy! Teddy is in a very sad place in this one and you often feel for him as much as you laugh at him. Whenever Rogen and Efron are on screen together, I was dying. I could’ve watched Rogen teaching Efron how to make hard-boiled eggs for an entire film. Efron steals this film, to a point that Rogen and Byrne at times almost feel secondary to this story.

The first Neighbors was funnier overall, the movie is worth a watch if you have any interest. I don’t know what a third movie would be about, but I’d be down.
