Did you see Dark Phoenix?!

One word: Badass!!💯 If you love the Xmen franchise and Gene’s character you are going to loooove Gene’s backstory!!

The backstory on her life really sets the pace for the entire mutant saga. And I thought Logan was good??!! How can such a destructive, cataclysmic dark gift be wrapped in such a beautiful package?? The actress Sophia Turner played the mutant Gene Grey and she killt it!! aside from the fact that she was drop dead gorgeous and mesmerized you with those piercing brown eyes. I’m trying not to give too many spoilers way lol. So when you go see it come back and comment!! I just may go see this one again!!

😍😍🔥🔥ok!! on to my review..

If you’ve been following me for awhile you know that I am a storyline person. It doesn’t matter to me who the actors are…the storyline is what gets me and this one did not disappoint!! So it starts with the 8yr old Gene and how she came to be a part of Charles’s mutant family. From the very beginning Charles knew she was the most powerful of them all but he also knew her heart and he sometimes had to be the bad guy in order to keep her safe and from becoming her own worst enemy. How many of us Bipolar people have a really strong gift that’s also our biggest weakness?? For Gene it was: her mind. (Same here) What she saw as the bad part of herself, or the darkness inside her that she had to be rid of, was the one thing she needed to save the mutant race!!

Then after _?_ gets killed Magneto comes on the scene and all hell breaks loose!! Sorry I gotta leave it there. I don’t wanna ruin it.

But, its so worth it!!

150 min run time.

Stonehearst Asylum (Netflix)

Lol. I was doing a search on netflix mental illness movies as ran across this one. I guess I will label it suspense comedy?? Based on Edgar Allen Poe’s: Short Story Stonehearst Asylum about a recent medical school graduate brought in for clinical studies to offer hope and compassion to its residents. Dr. Newgate had good intentions but the longer he observes, the more secrets he uncovers. The movie is set in the late 1800s. Starring Kate Beckingsale from (The Underworld Series.) While the movie was funny to laugh at it, the story wasn’t too far from the truth of how the mentally ill and indifferent were treated in the 1800s. Disabled, homosexual, elderly etc. No one was exempt in those days. I don’t want to give too much away. But, if you can watch it until the end it will completely throw you off. Trust me. You will not see the climax coming!! I would recommend it if you are in the mood for some bipolar entertainment..

Hint hint: Think = Shutter Island..

However, it did have some interesting quotes:

“Death cannot be prevented any more than madness cured.”

“Of all the afflictions I think of none more cruel than madness. It robs a man of his reason, his dignity, his very soul. And it does so, so slowly, without the remorse of death.”
