So just yesterday I had a chance to check out Michelle Obama’s documentary Becoming which is out on Netflix. The documentary takes place during Michelle Obamas book tour and the series of interviews that she does. You also learn more about her family such as her mom, her older brother, and her day who unfortunately passed away years ago. You get to the house she grew up in and you learn more about the struggles that she went through not only as a former first lady but just as a women or more specifically a black woman.
I read Michelle Obama’s book when it first came out and also listened to the audiobook and it had to be one of the most inspiring things I have ever read. So watching the documentary brought me to tears at certain points because of how much I not only related to her but also to the girls that she was speaking with. Plus it just made me feel so inspired and glad to be not only a woman but a black woman because many times the stereotypes, or feeling like you don’t belong, etc can really bring you down and make you wonder if you need to change who you are so that you can belong. And Michelle Obama had the perfect answer to that which was pretty much no and that you should have confidence in yourself.
For me this was a great thing to hear since being a black woman I always struggled with feeling I belong. I was always and still am at times worried about how people see me and what they think about me. I also at times did deal with the stereotypes that followed black women so seeing a black woman like her make it the white house really made me proud to be who I am. Plus I look back on my experiences and I realize just how much they shaped me. Also I’m learning to love my uniqueness and not care about what others have to say about me or what they thing about me because I have to stay true to myself and be happy with who I am.
Another great thing about the documentary was the inclusions of young people that she spoke with and their lives. These instances were also inspiring and also helped see what reading this book did to help them. These parts weren’t long but they were just enough to show you the impact that she had.
Overall I definitely recommend watching this documentary and also reading her book. Like I mentioned above there is a audiobook which is also amazing since Michelle Obama actually reads it. So that’s what I have to say about this documentary and I hope you all enjoy your Sunday.
Besides being excited for the new season of Carole and Tuesday I was also excited to check out Kevin Harts new docuseries. Now I really enjoy watching Kevin Hart and find him pretty hilarious so being able to watch a more personal video about him had me pretty excited.
The docuseries follows Kevin Hart during his tour when he was recording his most recent stand up and it covers the cheating scandal as well as the Oscar fiasco. It shows you how his team handled the situation and also how Kevin handled the situation as well. You even get more insight into the people that he has around him such as his friends named the plastic cup boys as well as his dad whom he has mentioned in stand ups.
The docuseries is only 6 episodes long and each episode is about 30 mins so it’s definitely something that you can easily get through in a day. Plus when you add in the laughter that Kevin Hart is able to produce it feels like the time just flys by.
Now this isn’t to say that the entire series is funny. There are definitely moments where it gets serious and that’s mostly when the discussion of the cheating and the Oscar scandals come into play. You see just how hurt his wife was and you see the damage control that Kevin’s team goes through. Plus you see how hurt Kevin was through it all and the stress that he was going through.
Overall I have to say that the series was really interesting. It was nice to see the other side of him besides what we all read on gossip blogs and Instagram. Plus it was great to see his home life and know more about his family and friends. So I definitely recommend checking out this series especially if you are a Kevin Hart fan.
I honestly really hope that there is a 2nd season since I would love to know more about his family. So check out this series on Netflix if you haven’t already.
So now I’m curious on if my readers will check out this series? Also I want to know if you have checked out the series what did you think of it? Comment down below your thoughts.
Hey everyone!! So like I promised a while back here is finally my review on the book and season 1 of the controversial show 13 Reasons Why. Yes there are spoilers in this video and the series itself talks about suicide. So if you plan to watch the show, read the book, or are sensitive to the topic of suicide then I suggest not watching this. But otherwise enjoy and if you are enjoying my content be sure to subscribe if you haven’t already.
