Paper Towns Movie Review-

Originally posted on E-Dunks Blog:

     Paper Towns is a book written by John Green. When it was turned into a movie, Cara Delevingne and Natt Wolf (who was also in TFIOS) got the leading roles of Quentin and Margo. The basis of the movie was that two childhood friends, meet up in senior year, and then Margo disappears. This is when the movie started to tank. In the book, Margo says that she is going to commit suicide. But in the movie, she just said that she was going to New York, and for no one to follow her.

Cara as Margo got a lot of hate, as many people think that she did not play a good Margo. John Green backed her up, and said she played a fabulous Margo. John Green was also executive producer on the movie, so his word made most of the decision. Another thing that many people…

Five Problems Girls with Unmanageable Hair Have

Originally posted on keripie:

You will only understand this if you have thick, long, and frizzy hair and envy girls whose hair is naturally straight. Here are some tips if you need help managing and styling your hair on a daily basis.

  1. Hair Elastics

If you are like me and have thick wiry hair and snap at least two-hair elastics a day here are some tips. If you’re fixing your hair constantly because your hair elastic can’t hold up all your hair I recommend using rubber hair elastics. Some people say they hurt and they do a little but it’s worth it because they rarely break and you don’t have to fix your hair constantly.

  1. Frizz

IMG_4572After using frizz controlling brands that say “tames frizz” I realized that didn’t work at all and trust me I basically tried everything. Using brands that are all natural and don’t have sulfates or parabens don’t damage your…

Misconceptions About Sexuality

Originally posted on Thoughts From An 8th Grade Writer:

I feel I should talk about sexuality because middle school and high school are really important times for figuring yourself out. Recently, I had a friend tell me he was anxious to come out to me.  I was confused, because for him to be anxious, that would imply that he was telling me something that was bad or that he wasn’t supposed to. Nobody should ever feel they have to be anxious to be the way they are.

There are a lot of misconceptions about sexuality. Many of the common ones include that: people who classify as gay or lesbian are ‘inferior”, asexual people “just haven’t met the right person”, bisexual and pansexual people are “confused”, gender-queer people “don’t exist”, and transsexual people are just “going through a phase”. None of these are true. These are just hurtful stereotypes that media has trained us to believe. Instead, we should say…

Country Music

Originally posted on bloggingwithowen:

The value of country music: country music has a much deeper value then people think. People think that it is just about breaking up with people, love, and only men sing it, but that really isn’t true! I can list you plenty of women country singers; Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Reba McIntyre, Dolly Parton, Miranda Lambert, Faith Hill, but there are plenty more, and I could only list a few. There are also plenty of songs that aren’t about break ups or love songs such as; Homegrown by The Zac Brown Band, and Wagon Wheel by Darius Ruckers. There is also a much deeper meaning to all of the songs if you actually listen to the lyrics. The meaning in most of them can help you and sometimes give you advice.

Personally, I like Luke Bryan, Keith Urban and Sam Hunt. I have listened to most of their songs over…

My DigiFest 2015 Experience

June 7th 2015 was a day many New England fangirls and fanboys looked forward too, thinking it would be just as they advertised it; Meeting your idols, Experiencing the best concert of your life, and all packed together in an amazing venue. But no, many experienced just the opposite. Being one of those people, I decided to share my bittersweet experience and the pros and cons of DigiFest. I arrived promptly at 10 AM thinking the doors would open at 12ish just outside of the Palladium. Just as Jack Dail, The Dolan Twins, and Carter Reynolds ran past my car being chased by crazy teenage girls, I thought it was going to be the best day ever. I got out and over to my left I saw my friends, and went to go stand with them. We waited about an hour or so, before we spotted our first celebrities, and…

The Return of Bieber

Justin Performing on the Believe Tour. Justin Performing on the Believe Tour.

As many of you know Justin Bieber recently debut his new song What Do You Mean? at the VMA’s. The performance proved to be very emotional for Justin, at the end of the performance he broke down crying.

This performance was the first time he was singing on national television since he spent time in jail and rehab for drugs, drinking, drag racing, and vandalizing his neighbor’s property. He decided about a year ago that he was going to change so his siblings had someone to look up too and he wanted to be someone that his family was proud of.

He began the performance very strong but towards the end of the performance he began to get emotional. He thanked his fans and god for giving him the opportunity to have a second chance at music.

I liked how all his dancers were…

Mean Girls 2: A Sequel Gone Wrong (Spoilers!)

It is true that in most cases, the sequel to an original movie is never as great, and Mean Girls 2 is no exception. This movie is definitely a sequel gone wrong.

Directed by Melanie Mayron

MPAA Rating (US Movie System): PG-13

• Meaghan Jette Martin as Johanna “Jo” Mitchell
• Jennifer Stone as Abigail “Abby” Hanover
• Maiara Walsh as Amanda “Mandi” Weatherly
• Diego Boneta as Tyler Adams
• Nicole Gale Anderson as Hope Plotnik
• Claire Holt as Chastity Meyer
• Bethany Anne Lind as Quinn Shinn

Shot within the suburbs of Ohio, this low-budget film has been made with poor screenplay. Mean Girls 2 starts off with tomboy Jo Mitchell moving to a new town and starting her senior year at North Shore High School. She has vowed to not get involved with any of the girl drama in her school. However, does this happen? Of course not. She is forced to become friends with a social outcast Abby Hanover in exchange for a full paid tuition to college by Abby’s dad, Sidney Hanover. After befriending Abby, Jo gets pulled into all the drama surrounding North Shore’s most popular clique, The Plastics, consisting of Mandi Weatherly, the queen bee; Chastity Meyer, the slut;and Hope Plotnick, the germaphobe.Without realizing, Jo falls for Mandi’s step brother Tyler; this leaves Mandi furious. As time flies by, Jo gets pulled into a full scale prank war against the Plastics, trying to ruin Mandi’s life while Mandi tries to ruin Jo’s chance at her dream college, Carnegie Mellon University. Many goof ups occurred throughout this part of the movie, such as a mess up on Jo’s Carnegie Mellon University acceptance letter, a change in the amount of iced coffee splashed on Abby Hanover changing drastically from one scene to the next, and a disappearance and reappearance of Mandi’s necklace in the birthday party scene. The rest of the movie is about how Jo becomes as shallow as a kiddy pool and how she works her way back up into the normal person she is.

You may have never seen the actors in Mean Girls 2 because many of them are fairly new. However, there are many actors you may have seen them in Disney Channel. Many of them have only acted in a couple of movies while some of the other actors haven’t even acted before. Meaghan Jette Martin (Jo) tried her best to portray her character, but everything she says is forced. For example, when she was reciting her feelings to her boyfriend in the middle of the movie, it sounded like she was reading from a script. A robot could have replaced her because throughout the film, she has a monotone voice and forced expressions. Maiara Walsh (Mandi) is a really free actress and she did a good job playing the main antagonist. I still remember the time she squeezed her cappuccino and it flew everywhere. You could literally see the fumes coming out of her ears. She knew when to put in the right expression for her part in the movie and she also knew when she had to express her feelings of anger against others. However, comparing Walsh to the infamous Rachel McAdams is like comparing charcoal to a diamond. McAdams is the perfect example of a “mean girl.” From using boys to manipulating friends, every scene that McAdams acted in Men Girls had a lot more emotion and strength behind it compared to Walsh’s performance in Mean Girls 2. Although Walsh played a decent role as queen bee, she still stands lower than the original Regina George.

Jennifer Stone was like a silent butterfly. She did a decent job playing the “shy wallflower” Abby Hanover in the movie. However, at in some parts of the movie she is too subtle and more expression could have been showed. Although she may have not been like the excited Harper Lee from her old TV show, the Wizards of Waverly Place, she still portrayed her sweet and quiet role efficiently in the movie.

If you want to compare a sweet apple and a rotten orange, then you are also comparing both Mean Girls and Mean Girls 2. Mean Girls 2 was never played at the movie theater. It was just played on ABC. Mean Girls is full of memorable quotes and hilarious scenes, which makes the movie fun to watch. Mean Girls 2 is like rice pudding. It is bland all through. I know, this seems like a biased review, but trust me, after watching both movies, it is obvious that Mean Girls is better.
Overall, Mean Girls 2 can be watched once, but I just want to let you know that i warned you.  I personally doubt if there are people who will like Mean Girls 2 more than the original Mean Girls. This movie would have done way better if it wasn’t named after a classic. Mean Girls 2 may have not been like the original, but you can watch it once, so you can trash the movie for yourself.
