Favorite YouTube videos for March

Well, it’s that time again. I normally list the videos in the order I watch them, so let’s see what gold I struck this month. 😃

Best prank ever? 

I’ll be the first to admit that I dislike pranks, but when the Dobre twins are out there pulling pranks on one another, I tend to find it amusing because their pranks are mostly harmless. However, Lucas pranked his twin into thinking that he was missing (some bad acting on some of the actors’ part in my opinion), but when Marcus got him back, he almost lost his marbles. I know you don’t mess with a man’s car because that’s their baby, wifey, girlfriend, babe etc., but this prank was EPIC! Lucas 1 Marcus 100.

Testing our detective skills! 🔎

Tammy and I put our detective skills to the test with this Bright Side riddle package and got 6 out of 10 right. We’re still salty about the one where the snorkeler died in the forest. 😒

3 Marker Challenge with my favorite twins

I enjoyed watching this video for it made me smile. Demi won the first round, Lucas the second and Marcus the third. Little Alex is not good at coloring and he’s a spoiled crybaby. I dislike seeing him feature in the twins’ videos sometimes because he’s super annoying and not a good team player. Marcus is good with girls (on two occasions he told his brothers not to forget the flowers and he’s good at choosing flowers too. I guess he knows what girls like 😆) and he’s good with children. I hope he finds someone special one day for he’s so precious.

Thank you, Hayley!

Hayley has been an immense blessing and I pray that the good Lord will continue to bless and use her for His glory. I have to catch up on her blog, but I smile whenever I get a YT notification from her. 🙂

Strange wedding traditions around the world

Although I already knew a few of these traditions, this video was interesting, to say the least.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout trailer

This trailer is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time and I am living for it. It feels like it’s the final chapter in the Ethan Hunt saga and I look forward to this movie in July God’s willing. I feel like it’s going to be the biggest opening for an MI film.

I think it’s time for Ethan Hunt to get his own cartoon. And if you’re reading this, vote yay or nay for a short Ethan Hunt story which I’ll most likely publish in April God’s willing. Ah, don’t bother. I’m sure I’ll write it anyway.

Tom learns to fly a helicopter for MI 6

This man learned to fly a helicopter in a short period of time (2000 hours) just for an action sequence in the upcoming MI movie. There’s a scene in which he is flying, acting, and filming at the same time. I’m sure if I look up the word commitment in the dictionary, a photo of TC will be next to it.

Hayley’s beautiful cover

This woman is gifted with music and listening to her voice is soothingly refreshing. I subbed to her channel last month and I’m happy whenever I receive a notification from her. You can find Hayley over on her blog red letters.

Benefits of… banana peels?

Banana has a lot of benefits. It can help with acne, fertilize plants, whiten your teeth, polish your shoes, soothe bug bites etc. Some I knew, some I didn’t. Overall, this video was informative. 👍

Thanks, Lynn! 💙

Lynn shared a lovely reminder that God can renew, restore and refresh us when we hit life’s messy middles. I was also happy to sub to her channel.

My favorite BookTuber tested weird book products.

These products were really weird! I wouldn’t use any of them. How did some of these products even make it past the testing stage is beyond me.

“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”: meh!

Not because everyone tells you that a movie is great and it’s on top of the Box Office and it’s a success by Hollywood standards, means it’s great. I was supposed to get this review out since last month, but I’m still angry at this garbage.

Image result for "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle"

Take a look at this plot:

When four high-school kids discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of–Jumanji–they are immediately drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the avatars they chose: gamer Spencer becomes a brawny adventurer (Dwayne Johnson); football jock Fridge loses (in his words) “the top two feet of his body” and becomes an Einstein (Kevin Hart); popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor (Jack Black); and wallflower Martha becomes a warrior (Karen Gillan). What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji–you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves–or they’ll be stuck in the game forever…

I look beyond the dramatic cinematic effects and I see unwatchable typical Hollyweird oversexualized junk. This lame movie was not anywhere near funny. It was reaching, it was cheesy, the dialogue was senseless and that’s not even half of it. The acting was bad, Jack Black is as funny as paint drying, Kevin Hart is NOT funny, and Dwayne Johnson? Well, I’ll never see him as an actor and nothing or no one is going to change my opinion about him. He falls flat where it concerns the emotions. 

He is just not a good actor and he is not believable at all. He is not charismatic and he does not have THAT real on-screen presence. I mean, not every actor can be Tom Cruise action-wise, but Johnson gives me nothing.

When you have a strong opinion, oversensitive people call it hating.

Despite having the lush jungle to rampage, the storytelling was just horrible and dumb. The plot consists of generic cliché teenage crushes and they could’ve done some work on the CGI. The movie also contained played out humor. Take Hart’s character for example. His weakness is cake and in one scene he stupidly mistakes cake for bread, ate it, and asks, “Am I still black?”

LAME! The race card is overcooked, stop trying to stew it.

Now let’s talk about the very creepy Mr. Black. He had to portray a very stereotypical popular girl who has a crush on Nick Jonas’s character. Even Nick Jonas is not a brilliant actor. He does nothing for me (he was also the reason I stopped watching Hawaii 5.0 after that dreadful cameo), but make me want to hit him with a brick.

The ‘girl in a man’s body’ humor was distasteful and to see a nearing 50-year-old Jack Black moving around with feminine mannerisms was not okay! It was rather disgusting. If I ever see Tom Cruise doing this, I’ll never watch another one of his movies again and I’ll erase his name from my lips.

I don’t see anything family-friendly about this cheap movie. I do not care how many Box Office records it has smashed. The sexual innuendo was weird given that this movie targeted children, but all the content was doing was confusing and brainwashing them. Some families were uncomfortable while watching the movie and had to abandon this garbage midway through.

The best thing about this garbage? When the credits started rolling and Axl Rose starts screaming ‘Welcome to the jungle’. Man! It’s been ages since I’ve heard that song!

Trailer: Mission: Impossible – Fallout

The first look at Mission: Impossible – Fallout trailer is here and it’s AMAZING! Rebecca Ferguson is back and so is Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. Henry Cavill is rocking the mustache and he’s portraying a character who goes by the awesome name of August Walker. I am hoping that he’ll prove me wrong for he’s so wooden as an actor. Angela Bassett is also looking good in her role.

And Tom Cruise is back with the crazy stunts. 

So I just watched the heart-stopping action trailer, and I don’t know where to begin. I’ll start here:

“Your mission, should you choose to accept it. I wonder… did you ever choose not to?”

Chills, child! Chills! That’s a killer dialogue right there! We have fist fights, motorcycle chases, and a helicopter chase. Yes, because Tom was looking for a way to kill himself so he decides to up the ante by performing a death-defying stunt by hanging off the side of a moving helicopter.

I want to talk a little about the August Walker character. In one scene, he points out that Hunt has been betrayed by his own government numerous times, and asks how long will a man like Hunt has had enough. In another scene, Walker is seen helping Hunt take down a bad guy, but then in another, he’s chasing down Hunt with a helicopter, which begs the question: friend or villain? I think they’ll be enemies at first and they’ll team up later on.

I believe that this MI is going to be the biggest for Tom; I also hope that it’ll be the last chapter of this fantastic spy-fi for it’s time to retire Ethan Hunt.

Favorite YouTube videos of the month!

YASSS! New monthly category!

 

I may have mentioned this in earlier posts that I frequent YouTube a lot, not for music videos, but for interesting, fun, and learning content. I’ve subscribed to some awesome channels and thought I’d share a few of the videos I’ve enjoyed for the month.

Twins teach their 21-year-old best friend to ride a bike

If it’s one channel that I’ve come to love over on YT, it’s Lucas and Marcus. The Dobre twins always try to make family-friendly oriented content even when pulling softcore pranks on their brothers and parents. 

Anyways, earlier this month, the twins taught their cameraman and best friend, Steve, how to ride a bike. It was a really nice experience for Steve who mastered the art of bike riding by the end of the video.

Surprise, Marcus!

The twins turned 19 on Sunday and Lucas attempted to surprise his twin with a birthday party at their parents’ gym. Was it the best birthday party ever? I don’t know, but Marcus was sure appreciative of the gesture.

Reading books is amazing

One of my favorite BookTubers, Jesse lists 30 things that he loves about reading books. I might have identified with many, if not all of them.

Epic intro!

James Patterson pulls no punches when it comes to promoting/marketing his books and this 31-second clip of him entering a stadium to plug the book is amazing!

Whodunit?

This video is from September last, but I only discovered their channel this month (YouTube recommended it) and I like it! In this clip, there are 7 mysteries that only 5% can solve. Do you have what it takes? Then watch the clip and play along.

And that’s a wrap! 😃

Tom Cruise reveals the title of the 6th Mission

Image result for tom cruise mission impossible gif

The best spy in the business is back! 

The only movie that I’m highly anticipating this year is the 6th entry in the Mission: Impossible franchise and I seriously can’t wait for it. My love affair with movies is out the window, but I still love the Mission franchise. And Tom Cruise did two things today: he joined Instagram and revealed the title of the 6th Mission in an epic way. 

The title is Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

Get ready. #MissionImpossible

A post shared by Tom Cruise (@tomcruise) on

The title heavily suggests that the 6th installment will deal with the repercussions from Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. On a side note, I wonder if Ethan Hunt’s relationship status would finally be put to rest. His ex-wife is coming back (maybe they see each other secretly and they aren’t even exes as he suggested in the 4th Mission?), but I am hoping that Ethan and Ilsa are end game.

The trailer should be arriving next month. Tom also posted a photo of him hanging onto a flying helicopter promising that they upped the ante for the 6th installment. 

That’s a mad shot! 

Mission: Impossible – Fallout arrives in theaters July 27, 2018.
