So to start out let me just say that I love watching these types of movies. I love watching movies about moms going apeshit when something happened to her kids. I don't know what it is about it but it speaks to my soul. Basically, what happens is Karla Dyson played by Halle Barry (another reason to watch the movie) is at the park and then her son Frankie gets kidnapped and viola there is the plot.
As simple as it was I really enjoyed the movie overall. In my opinion, it was still a really good fun movie. It was an action/thriller movie so I wouldn't say that it had a deep plot by any means and according to rotten tomatoes it didn't do the best. But I never base my ratings based on rotten tomatoes, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It had me so worried about this mother and kid and whether the mother would get Frankie back which in my opinion that says a lot for an action movie. It had me invested in the characters and for an action movie that takes a lot.

Sierra Burgess Is A Big Loser (2018)
Another Netflix movie that recently came out and I have to say it wasn't exactly my favorite. I was hoping for some girl love, maybe some good representation for plus size girls. Instead, I got a movie whose plot was just stupid. Yes, rom-coms are normally like this, a stupid very dramatic plot with cute fluffy stuff that makes the movie great. This movie was supposed to be a rom-com but instead, the plot was completely blown out of proportion. I just couldn't understand why Sierra needed to disguise herself as Veronica, yes she was overweight and insecure about it but really! If this guy is a good guy it shouldn't of matter what her weight was he would still like her just as much as he did over the phone. I'm not going to spoil anything but this movie just really frustrated me.
However the one good thing about this movie that the song at the end was very good and I quite enjoyed the song. So if anything skip to the end and listen to the song because it is quite nice.
