So I’ve seen the trailer for Gemini a few times this year during the previews of other movies I’ve seen. Well, I love Zoe kravitz so I was like yeah, I’m going to see it. The story looked interesting as well. Well, didn’t come to a theater near me, but it is available for rental on iTunes ($5.99)

The movie is about Heather (Zoe) and her assistant Jill (Lola Kirke). Heather backs out of a movie she was signed on for and now everyone hates her. Her ex boyfriend also wants to kill her as well. She ends up dead, but who killed her?! I really liked the script because it seem scripted if you get what I’m trying to say. Like yes, it was obviously scripted because it’s a movie, but the dialog between everyone was so natural! I feel like if the situation were happening in real life, and it involved me and my friends, our interactions and dialog would be almost exactly the same. This gave the movie a sense of realness. Although the scene when Jill meets up with Jamie and says “right now” like 4 times within the span of 1 minute. DEAD!

Im glad this movie was good because Zoe has been making questionable indie choices lately. Vincent and Roxxy?! I can not! But I did! It was so awful!!! I wrote about it a while back if you care to search my blog and read about it. Long story short, don’t waste your time on that movie.

The only thing that I didn’t like, which could be a big deal to some, was the ending! I NEED ANSWERS!!! At the end I was like, soooooo….

I finally got a chance to see this movie yesterday and it was amazing. When I saw the preview for the first time about a month ago, I knew I had to see it. I was hoping it would be as good, if not better than the Amy documentary.

I was a little confused at times with some of the filler video they used, but I eventually caught on to what they were doing. Other than that, I have no complaints about this doc.

It was super informative, at least to me because while I knew who Whitney was, and loved her music mainly because my mom played her, I didn’t know much else. I remember her popular songs and movies, but more than anything I remember her downfall. So this documentary shed light on things I never knew, mainly because I was too young to care and I didn’t read tabloids or watch entertainment news, etc. Older people will probably have vivid memories of certain events mentioned.

It was a great movie, but sad as well. I expected it to be a little sad. Long story short, her family is garbage juice.

Amy won the Oscar for best documentary feature in 2015 which I felt was well deserved. Whitney deserves a nomination at the very least.
