A Quiet Place
By: Nicolas Rodriguez
A Quiet Place is a horror movie based on a apocalyptic earth. In this place, there are monsters that have very good hearing. John Krasinski is the director of this movie. I would recommend this movie because it has a very good storyline and good actors. It also incorporates the use of sign language. This movie has really great reviews, I believe this movie deserves these reviews. This movie is 1 hour and 30 minutes long. This movie was very interesting; it kept my attention very well. The main characters were the mom, dad, daughter, younger son, and older son. My favorite character was the father because he was trying to find a way to defeat the monsters, and tried to find help. I would rate this movie 4 stars because the characters didn't have names. Overall the movie was pretty good and I would recommend it.
"Nailed It" (2-4-19)
McKenzie Matheny and Emily Shaw
“Nailed it” is a Netflix original tv show that challenges people who don’t normally bake to create masterpieces. There are two rounds of baking in each 30 minute episode with 3 judges. They have to make desserts like a winter wonderland, a castle, etc.. The first round is called baker’s choice where they get to choose an option of what they want to make. For example, if the topic is cake-pops, they could choose between a polar bear, a penguin, or a seal. Since they get to choose what they want to bake in the first round it makes the second round more challenging. The winner of the first round gets a golden bakers hat and a surprise kitchen gift. In the second round, the food that they are challenged to bake is more difficult and intricate. Most of the bakers who attempt the baking challenge don’t in fact, nail it, but instead fail it. The winner of the second round wins $10,000.
Have you ever watched the movie Don’t Breathe? I have. It came out a long time ago, but I decided to do a review on it. Fede Álvarez was the director of this movie and a good one if I must say. I would recommend it if you like scary things. It was interesting because it was a blind old man you wouldn’t think he could do anything. It was keeping my attention because you never knew what was coming next. It took me a good hour or 2 cause I keep pausing it. The setting was a house and the main characters were Rocky, Alex, Money, and the blind man. My favorite character was Alex. I would rate this 5 stars because of its instructing pop-ups and scary features.
If you love movies with Dwayne Johnson like me then you’ll love this movie. Watch as Dwayne Johnson saves everyone, once again. My favorite character is George. Towards the end of the movie George is so funny. Another thing I like about this movie is that they kinda brought Godzilla back. If you haven’t watched Rampage you need to watch it.
Gus's Fried Chicken
Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken is a great restaurant. This restaurant is all about chicken. The tables are clean and the bathroom is too. The chicken didn't take long to arrive. The chicken was delicious. I had 3 pieces of chicken and 2 piece brass wings. My mom had the 2 piece white chicken with a breast and a wing. My dad had 3 piece dark chicken and thin leg. This place is good for a lot of people too. The chicken did have a little kick to it, so if you don’t like spicy foods I wouldn’t recommend it.
Wing stop is a wing place in Bartlett. It’s not the best place to eat, but that might just be because I like Wing Guru better. I would recommend calling in to get your food, because it took them like 45 minutes just to get our food. The restaurant is pretty clean, but the service isn’t the best in the world. I didn’t really like the wings, but the rest of my family did. There is only 2 types of dip, blue cheese and ranch. There are rolls and they were okay, but, I think they were just bought from a store like Kroger or Walmart. My favorite part were the fries. They are almost as good as Five Guys. Over all, Wing Stop is an okay place to get some wings with your family.
Texas De' Brazil
McKenzie Matheny and Emily Shaw
Texas De’ Brazil is a restaurant that serves only meat, salads, and soup. The restaurant is located in downtown Memphis and costs approximately $50 per person. It is also a mostly a dinner restaurant, but they also serve lunch at certain hours during the day. Texas De’ Brazil is a very formal restaurant where they give you a piece of laminated card-stock with one side being red and the other being green. The red means that they will stop coming over to your table with different types of meat so you have time to eat, while the green means they will come over and offer more food. Texas De’ Brazil is a restaurant where you can celebrate birthdays, traditions, achievements, and fancy dates. I would give this restaurant a 4 out of 5 stars since the restaurant is very clean, well organized, and has great food. I did not give it a 5 because I wish they had a bigger variety of food choices for people who wants sides like fries, veggies, etc.. If you love meat and lots of food, then you will love Texas De’ Brazil.
Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers
By: Duncan McArthur
Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is a burger/custard restaurant. I am going to start off by saying the website looks great and easy to use. The food is juicy and fresh, I would recommend the single steak burger and a hot dog. Bathrooms are clean and pretty nice looking. It is pretty cheap for burgers and has 4.2-star ratings as of 1/17/19. Nice employees and 50s, 60s, and 70s, theme. I think that Freddy’s overall its a good place to eat.
Weird Food Combinations
Weird food Combinations were a trend from last year but no one has done a review on it so I thought I would. Some of the combinations were good but I didn’t like a whole lot. Most them tasted like barf to me and I don’t know how people could eat some of these “interesting” foods. Some were spicy, some were sweet, and some were plain. I would try this if you like sugar and popcorn mixed or Hot Cheetos and milk. Some did taste like they were descripted to taste like. I saw them on YouTube. It started to go viral last year but people have probably been doing this a while. People like this and some people don’t.
