This is going to be as ** Spoiler Free ** as I possibly can because of reasons.
I went into the movie maybe watching a single trailer and I have stayed away from anything spoilery. This was the best way to experience this film and I will keep this as spoiler free as I can because everyone deserves to experience this movie like I did. I’m serious.
I LOOOOOVED this movie so much. I laughed. I cried. I laughed so hard, that I cried (and I’m sure vice versa). There was so much heart to this movie and yet it wasn’t over the top.

I’m going to try and be completely unbiased in the following review. Oh. Who am I kidding? I wanted this movie to be amazing. I went into this movie knowing I was going to love it. I have hyped this movie to everyone I know. And I’m not going to lie, it has taken Marvel much too long for them to finally have a female led movie. To be fair*, they did bring us Agent Carter, but they took her away from us far too soon.
So. Unbiased? Probably not, but I’ll be as honest as I can. I loved this movie. This is also the part where I pledge my undying love for Carol Danvers.

If you are a surface fan of Harry Potter its likely you may not see as many issues as I did. Of course, there are issues with the plot that have nothing to do with Harry Potter canon so… maybe not?
I don’t regret watching it. It was a fun way to spend a cold Sunday afternoon, but I’m not going to lie I had some issues.

EDIT: Oooops, this was scheduled to post almost three months ago. Sorry guys, but posting it now.
I enjoyed this film. It was a unique little tale about one night among many in the lives of a group of strangers. This was just one story in a city full of stories and only but a glimpse of the happenings of Hotel Artemis.
This film had such a wonderful look to it and way about everything it chose to do. However, where this film really shined was through the performances of the actors. There’s not enough great things I can say about everyone in this film.

A Simple Favor is a well-crafted over the top chess match between two very different but very smart women. Anna Kendrick plays Stephanie, the instagram Mommy Blogger. Her youtube channel is full of last-minute brownie recipes and tips on how to make the perfect friendship bracelet.
Stephanie strives to make the outside perfect and convince everyone she’s the winning Mom, however, her closet isn’t exactly empty of skeletons as she would like most to believe. Blake Lively as Emily is a cool mysterious woman with the perfectly tailored suits, sharp tongue and who is able to make the perfect martini (the trick is that it’s all gin). Two minutes after Emily’s introduction I was leaning to my friend and declaring I was going to be here when I grow up.
