An Official Review

"NERVE" - The Movie
Slash Film


"4.5 out of 5 stars"

Last week, I posted an article on "The Top Five Movies You Must See Before Summer Ends." So following that, here's a review for one of them: "Nerve." Here it goes...

Synopsis: "Nerve" is an action-thriller about a high school senior, (Emma Roberts) who gets sucked into a viral online video-game whose fate is in the hands of the "watchers."

Review: The movie in pretty much all aspects, was really good! The style of cinematography and genre were up to par with what you would expect. The thriller aspect of the movie really put me at the edge of my seat and even sometimes made me sink deeper into it during some of the more edgier scenes. A proper action-thriller movie should do this, and "Nerve" did the genre justice.

The overall story and plot line were really good, and the inner conflicts of each character was noticeable and definitely gave them more depth in their roles. I wish the sub-plot/backstory between Dave Franco's character Ian and Ty was explained a little more in detail, as it serves as the set-up for Nerve's plot.

The actors in this movie were on point, and I think the director did a really good job in guiding them in playing out those inner conflicts. I've personally only seen Emma Roberts once before in "American Horror Story," but in "Nerve" she definitely delivered. I'm going to take this time to advise you, (the audience), on how you should critique an actor's performance. Your judgment should only be created when you have answered this one simple but complex in nature question, "Did the actor or actress address his or her inner conflict?" In short, this means if he or she makes known to the audience what their personal story is, the conflict they're going through and how it relates and coincides with the overall story/conflict of the movie, they have successfully done their job. Emma Roberts did this very well. Dave Franco...not entirely as I had hoped. He smiled too much, which for me was a distraction from the inner conflict, (which was a negative one for sure) that his character was supposed to overcome.

In conclusion, this movie was very well written and directed, and most of the actors stepped up to the plate. If it wasn't for Dave Franco's good looks, my guess is all of you would have thought the same way I did. However, the thriller aspect was on-point, and the mood/tone it gave was most definitely "nerve"-wracking!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
