Pattie Cake$ 2017 Movie Review

A unique and interesting girl version of “8 mile.”   There are definite similarities to 8 Mile (with Eminem) but the film is still unique and stands on its own.        It’s still a rap coming-of-age movie but with a girl as the main lead.

The film was entertaining all throughout.  The films has some twists and turns that will keep you guessing.   In some parts it is kind of formulaic but unless you are a complete movie snob then you won’t be bothered.        The lead girl definitely is the standout.   The supporting actors are also good.

The real joys in the film come from the rapping scenes because you are rooting for the main character so much  (similar to 8 Mile).

Also, I would say the film is very strong in the first hour with a lot happening and with the scenes moving quickly.

If you like movies that have music in them and you like coming-of-age movies then you’ll definitely like Pattie Cake$.

DJ ROBO BISCUIT gives it a 7 out of 10.

Obvious Child and Landline, Interesting Jenny Slate movies

“Obvious Child” and “Landline” are both interesting human films starring Jenny Slate.   They both have to do with an adult woman trying to deal with real life adult problems.   Obvious Child is funnier than Landline.  Landline is more like a drama and Obvious Child is a romantic comedy.   Both films are sincere and earnest.  I recommend Obvious Child over Landline as it is more entertaining.   BUT, if you like films that are about people trying to deal with their problems and you kind of like hipster-y women then Landline might be more entertaining.

Some have called Landline “Blase” whatever that means!     The two films are well-directed and are interesting enough to have you watch all the way through and you also don’t really know what it going to happen!

If you are a fan of Jenny Slate and you just wish you could see her in the movies then these are two very entertaining films.

THANKS!

Update to French Open 2017 picks from the Biscuit

UPDATE

Hey! This is my early French Open Prediction (with an update). I’m doing the prediction based on my tennis knowledge and my keeping up with the tour so far this year (also, I can not predict if people will get injured and pull out right before the tournament).  Now I am adjusting for current news.

For the WTA this will be the 8 women in the quarterfinals:

Angelique Kerber

Dominika Cibulkova

Simona Halep

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Carla Suarez Navarro

Lauren Davis

Daria Gavrilova

Laura Siegemund

Kerber is a counter-puncher. Cibulkova is a grinder. Halep’s game is well suited for the clay (hopefully she doesn’t get knocked out by Shelby Rogers early on). Kuznetsova is a beast and knows how to win on clay. Navarro is a dirt-baller with a beautiful one-handed backhand. Lauren Davis is fast and a grinder, she plays great on the clay.  Gavrilova is a battler who loves the fight and will feed off the French Open crowd. Siegemund has been playing really well on the clay and she has a really nice game so I have faith that she can make it deep.

ATP French Open QuarterFinals:

Stan Wawrinka

Juan Martin Del Potro

Rafael Nadal

Dominic Thiem

David Goffin

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Gael Monfils

Nick Kyrgios

I’m expecting Murray and Djokovic to get knocked out. For some reason they are very beatable right now. Tsonga and Monfils have the French crowd to motivate them. Kyrgios is box-office and if his head is in the game then he can hit right through the clay no problem. Dominic Thiem is MONEY on the clay with his game. It is harder on the men’s side due to the depth of competition. There are some very tough clay court players like Zeballos or Ramos Vinolas or Carreno Busta or Pablo Cuevas and these guys can be VERY VERY dangerous. But those are my picks!

I hope my fans will comment or my haters will let me know how bad my picks are! I also challenge other people to make an early prediction!!!

Thank you to all my fans and viewers! Stay fluffy!
