so i wanted to see “fast 7” tonight.
it was sold the fuck out everywhere.
i think all of new yawk went to pay their final respects to paul walker.
well i ended up seeing “home” with my favorite home-vixen.
here is a brief synopsis about the movie:
“After a hive-minded alien race called the Boov conquer the Earth, they relocate the planet’s human population — all except for a little girl named Tip (Rihanna), who’s managed to hide from the aliens. When Tip meets a fugitive Boov called Oh (Jim Parsons), there’s mutual distrust. However, Oh is not like his comrades; he craves friendship and fun. As their distrust fades, the pair set out together to find Tip’s mother, but, unbeknown to them, the Gorg — enemies of the Boov — are en route.” (google)
now let me give my thoughts without too much spoilers…
the movie in the beginning had me confused.
i felt like a lot happened with no explanation,
but it got more cohesive as it went on.
the main points of the movie was about:
not judging a book by its cover
wanting to belong
i thought the jokes were pretty funny also.
home vixen and i found ourselves laughing out loud a few times.
who i pretty much went to see it for,
was pretty good voicing the main character.
i could see the similarities between the rihanna and tip.
whoever did the special effects got her mannerisms down.
jim parsons and steve martin did well in their respective roles as well.
“oh” was so cute.
i would love to have him as a friend.
i also want the cat.
i saw it in 3d and the special effects were pretty solid.
you don’t need to see it in 3d to enjoy it tho.
now my only issue is with the mother.
she was played jennifer lopez.
so it is hinted that tip was from barbados.
as you know,
rihanna has a pretty thick accent.
jennifer lopez was playing her mother.
she had no accent.
she could have been a random snow bunny with a tan.
she didn’t even look like she could be related to this black girl.
would i recommend seeing it in the theater?
i feel like once was enough for me,
and i was pretty satisfied going to see it,
but it’s something to enjoy with a cub or if you are in the #navy.
other than that…
you can wait until it comes on demand or dvd.
“home” has pulled in 78 million so far.
lowkey: the movie made me fall in love with rihanna heavy tho.
