Top 5ive: Lindsay Lohan Singles

I don’t know about you but I have been straight up LIVING for Lindsay Lohan’s newest TV venture called “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” I’m all for boss LiLo. She literally takes no prisons in the show and who can blame her. It’s her name, and her brand. I would be doing that same thing. In honor of this, I thought it would be fitting to countdown her biggest singles.

Of course I want my own show LiLo.

“Bossy”

While this wasn’t an official single, it was slated to be the newest single off of her never-released third album. This song is a sleeper bop. It’s not as catchy as her previous song but it was still something that you can jam out to because it has a dance beat. It was released in 2008, it didn’t get the attention it deserves until MTV pulled it out of its life of obscurity. It’s now theme song for “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.” That’s because she’s now a boss bitch. It’s about time that “Bossy” gets into that limelight.

“Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)”

Honestly, This is my favorite song that she has done just because it’s just so raw and emotional. It came off of her second album “A Little More Personal (Raw)” and it was her ode to daddy issues. It was an open letter to her father, Michael, and was just her way to express her feeling. The raspy vocals with the rock feel of the song are so good. Lindsay even directed the video, which was just even better because it was raw, emotional, and just disturbing. I recommend watching the video if you haven’t already.

“Over”

This is a deep cut song off of her first album “Speak.” Sure, it was a single but it was just an underrated single. It’s a pop-rock ballad that has opens with a slow and steady beat before kicking into high gear for a power ballad. The video itself tells the story of the so well. Forbidden love, emotional baggage, and the stereotypical early 2000s garage band singling in the song. I remember thinking that this was scandalous at the time due to the scenes in the camper. sigh. If that camper could talk.

“Rumors”

Lindsay’s first single is probably her most famous and the most relatable until “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father).” It’s a forgot gem unless you stan Lindsay or was around during this time. The song is all about her relationship with the paparazzi and how everyone was trying to start rumors about her. It was the literal precursor to Miley Cyrus’ “Can’t Be Tamed.” I honestly forgot how much of a banger this song was until I turned it up and got down to it. Like, it’s everything.

Honorable Mention

“Drama Girl (That Girl)”

While we can all agree that the movie, “Confessions of A Teenage Drama Queen,” was a dumpster fire train wreck of crap. The song from the song is actually a bop. It’s probably the best part of the entire movie. The song was the final song in the movie was the big final number the movie’s musical portion. The video itself is your standard promotional music video for a movie. It has Lindsay performing in an audition while clips from the movie play in the background. Not iconic to make the list official but something that shouldn’t be totally overlooked

“Ultimate”

While this isn’t an official single and apart of her solo discography, this is probably her best known and loved song. It from her hit 2003 movie “Freaky Friday,” a remake of a Disney movie that came out in 1976. It’s our first glance at the fact that Lindsay had some pipes on her. Before this, she was there but lost in the crowd of her peers. This movie and song are what really pushed Lindsay Lohan into stardom. Without, we wouldn’t be blessed with her talents like we are today.

I highly recommend checking out Lindsay Lohan’s albums because they aren’t all that bad. In fact, I wish we will get more music from her. I need more Lindsay’s music. Also, I need more of that iconic dance that she was doing at her club.

Get ready to fall in love with ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’

It’s February and it’s a month of love. So every Friday in February, I’ll be watching and reviewing classic romantic movies throughout the month. So let’s celebrate love in honor of Valentine’s Day. Welcome to Forever Alone February. Didn’t expect that titled now did you?

It’s the month of love and it’s only fair that we talk about some of the most iconic romantic movies. So I thought it was only fitting to go with the most iconic Netflix original movie there is right now. So let’s talk about “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” I was going to do “Sarah Burgess is a Loser” but I have some thoughts and tea to spill on that movie.

It’s not like in the movies. It’s real.

“To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” is based on the book written by Jenny Han. The movie was directed by Susan Johnson and released exclusively through Netflix in August of 2018. It starred Lana Condor (“Deadly Class” and “X-Men: Apocolypse”) as Laura Jean and Noah Centineo (“The Fosters” and “Sarah Burgess is a Loser”) as Peter. Those are pretty much the two to remember throughout this movie.

Meet Peter and Laura Jean

The movie follows Laura Jean, your typical teenage girl with a secret stash of letters that she wrote to five boys that she had crushes on at a point in her life. One day, the letters get out to those boys and her left gets turned upside down. She starts a fake relationship with one of the boys that got a letter, Noah, in order to get his ex-girlfriend off of him and Laura Jean’s sister’s ex-boyfriend for admitting his feelings for her. The two set up ground rules but quickly must come to terms with the repercussions that have spawned from their deal.

I really enjoyed this movie. The acting in it was extremely good, especially for actors that don’t really have a lot of things under their acting belts. Lana and Noah just had this chemistry about them. They were absolutely adorable together and just the perfect on-screen couple. It was like they were meant to be in these rolls.

The main flaw of the movie is that it spent too much time on certain plot points and then just totally skips over certain points that you want to see more of. It does tell an extremely good story but it would have been nice to have a little more info on certain things.

It’s time to rate Noah Centineo

So I thought it was only fitting that we need to rate Noah Centineo and how he came off in this movie….also how hot he was. I’ll be rating him on a scale between 1 to 10. 10 is for Peter Kavinsky and 1 is paper bag blowing in the wind. I’m just going to assume you haven’t figured out what I’m going to rate him in this movie.

Noah gets a perfect 10 in this movie. Like he’s literally perfection. Not just basing it on looks and that hot tub scene, just the way he portrays Peter just makes him seem like the nicest unrealistic boy in the world. You literally have no choice but to love him. You think he’s going to come across as a total asshole but then he doesn’t. He just comes off as someone who actually cares and is invested into the feelings of others. This role is why Noah Centineo was called “the internet’s boyfriend.” I’m okay with this and you should too after watching this movie. In fact, Netflix made a Yule Log of Noah in the hot tub. Click here to watch it. It’s rather calming and soothing. You’re Welcome.

Verdict

“To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” is an extraordinary movie. While I wish it would have dived more into some background things, I really enjoyed this movie. The main characters were likable and had such amazing chemistry. The acting was extremely well done and just made you really get into the movie. I recommend checking this movie out on Netflix because it is definitely worth it.

Rating: 4 out of 5

‘Cruel Intentions 3’ was a step in the right direction

Because there’s a review for the first and second one, I felt like we need to finish off the franchise because it’s only fair. After watching “Cruel Intentions 2,” I came into “Cruel Intentions 3” will little to no expectations. I pretty much just went in hoping and wish that it wasn’t as bad as the second one. That one was a fucking trainwreck.

The moral of the “Cruel Intentions” series

Click here for the review for Cruel Intentions|Cruel Intentions 2

If you want to be so much like Kathryn, then let me be your Sebastian.

“Cruel Intentions 3” was released in 2004 as a direct-to-DVD sequel. No one from the original movie returned and honestly, for the best. The only thing that ties this movie to the two before is that the main female is related to the queen bitch Kathryn. It stars Kerr Smith (“Dawson’s Creek”) and Kristina Anapau (“True Blood”) as Jason Argyle and Cassidy Merteuil respectively.

The movie follows Jason and Cassidy as they use the people around them in bets that get them money, power, and sex. Things get a wild when Jason’s roommate gets involved and things start to get a little real and the bets take a more manipulative toll on the people around them. It’s pretty much a new take of the plot we have had in the last two movies. It’s nice to see them not use the same plot points.

This movie is a hundred times better than “Cruel Intentions 2.” It felt more like a movie and I could tell that they put more effort into it. It was more of a sequel than the one before it. It’s still not up to the level of the first one. That’s pretty hard to do because it’s iconic.

Meet Cassidy and Jason. They aren’t step-siblings so this isn’t creepy

The acting in it is still iffy but it’s not as noticeable with this one because the actors portrayed their characters so much better. It was way more believable this time around. It could be that they are all new characters but either way, I liked the characters more. As I said, it probably has to do with the fact they are new characters and not characters that I’ve already known and liked before they got new actors. They aren’t as good as OG Kathryn and Sebastian but they are better than the versions in “Cruel Intentions 2.”

Now I will say this: this movie came across as softcore porn. There’s actually a couple of very graphic sex scenes that are pretty much softcore porn. It’s actually kind of awkward sex scenes too. They don’t really add things to the movie. It’s kind of like they just threw in some sex scenes to make it spicy.

When it comes to the main plot of the movie, there is too much going on to keep up. There’s multiple plots points going on and it gets hard to follow at some points. Is it really necessary to have multiple bets going on? There’s also more side characters that don’t really do anything. Some set up a plot point for it to make sense and then other times it’s kind of like “Why are you here?” One thing that “Cruel Intentions 2” did right was it let the plot flow naturally and not have too much going on. This is just too much thrown at you for the sake of filling time.

Verdict

“Cruel Intentions 3” is a much better movie than “Cruel Intentions 2.” It’s still nothing compared to the first movie but it was a step in a better direction. The fact that it had little to do with the original helped it greatly. What didn’t help it was that the plot had too much going on. The sex scenes were meh and felt placed to make the rating. Honestly, I wouldn’t have minded seeing this become the television show. The characters were new and likable. I honestly want to know what happens to them after the awkward transition at the end.

Rating: 3 out of 5
