Movie Title: Daddy’s Home

IMDb Rating: 6.6/10

My Thoughts and Others:

I thought it was a great movie. Some parts made me think it was closely rated to R not PG 13. Many rated it very low. I’m not a film critic but I think people were being too picky. There were some very mature sequences and lots and lots of language. I recommend seeing this only if you can handle the language and amounts of suggestive behavior. Definitely not for young children but there were at least a couple of kids in the movie. These links below may not influence your decision but it’ll give you professional opinions. Most I don’t agree with. Will Ferrell was of course funny and Mark Walberg seemed to be more of the serious guy this time.


Rotten Tomatoes

I don’t want to spoil too much so this is my review. Daddy’s Home was a great movie but had quite a few questionable parts.

What are your thoughts on Daddy’s Home? Let Me Know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more movie reviews!

This will be the last one till 2016.

Book Review: Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets

Hello everyone! It’s Tuesday and time for the review I’ve been promising for quite sometime. It’s my book review for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling.


The Dursley’s were of course mean to Harry during the summer. All he wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Just as Harry is packing his bags, he receives a warning from a strange creature named Dobby who says that if Harry returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. Disaster does strike. In Harry’s second year of Hogwarts, new torments and horror arises, including a stuck up new professor named Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girl’s bathroom, and the unwanted attention of Ron Weasley’s younger sister Ginny. Each of these annoyances seem minor when the real trouble begins. Someone or something is turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a rich and stuck up rival? Could it possibly be Hagrid whose mysterious past is being uncovered? Or could it be the person that most people accuse.. Harry Potter himself?!
