Birds of Prey literally saved my weekend. I’ve been having major highs and lows… not really any highs. Just been feeling stagnant, irritable, and lonely. Damn I sound like a hot mess lmao. But there’s so much that goes on beyond what you see on social media. I recently caught myself clicking on someone’s page & being like “oh they look happy.” Nah fam, my shit is fucked up. Taking each day at a time though, and reminding the people I care about that I care about them.
Today I had to fix my flat tire from last night, which I got right before the Lil Tjay show. I’m obsessed with his music btw, if you’ve never heard of him. Please listen to “20/20,” it’s all I’m on.
Also got to shoot Atmosphere today, which also made my life. “Sunshine” was legit our hangover anthem in college.
Tonight was movie date night with my babygirl Cherise. We smoked before & after (ily if you reading this). We hit the 8pm showing at AMC Century City 15 on the Westside. I really do love this mall. It feels bougie but not in a bad way at all. Our theater was packed, we had the second row. But it was lit: reclining seats, popcorn, & two hours of pure entertainment.
IMDB plot: After splitting with the Joker, Harley Quinn joins superheroes Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya to save a young girl from an evil crime lord.
Soooo Harley Quinn is the baddest pitch, period. Well actually, Margot Robbie is the actual winner. She fucking killed this role, literally annihilated it. Team Margot. The original movie title is: Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn — which is how it shows up when you buy tickets. So extra lmao the wording was tiny. Pretty much Harley splits with her boyfriend The Joker, which seemed like perfect timing with the recent Joker movie. Def had to be planned… genius.
I think this DC Comics because it takes place in Gotham where Batman resides. Essentially, Harley finds her group of badass females — one of which is Jussie Smollett’s sister (thanks Cherise). V important info lmao. We fell in love with her. Jurnee Smollett-Bell is her name. Also Ali Wong has a nice little cameo, and the little kid is Asian. Asian power on the big screen, here for it.
birds of prey was fucking lit.

This film got high ratings on Rotton Tomatoes (83%), but people were trying to say it got bad reviews. Fuck that. This shit is bomb. Go see it 🙂
