What an inspiring story of a young girl finding her youthful purpose in the game of chess. The movie is a bit slow yet a good family film.

‘Snowden’ Movie Review

Based on a true story, the NSA’s illegal surveillance techniques are leaked to the public by one of the agency’s employees, Edward Snowden, in the form of thousands of classified documents distributed to the press. It actually ended up being better than I thought it would be.

‘The Magnificent Seven’ Movie Review

the-magnificent-seven-banner

This is my kind of a movie! What a great Western. I never saw the original but I will say I can’t imagine this film being rated horrible compared to the original. The build up of each character is good which causes you to like these bad guys with good intentions. I was on the edge of my seat and clapping during the epic wild west battle at the end. I saw it in IMAX.

‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ Movie Review

bridget-jones-baby-banner

In this 3rd installment in this franchise, Bridget gets pregnant. Problem is, who’s the daddy? LOL. I don’t think I needed a refresher of the other movies but I probably should have watched them anyways. It didn’t do well in it’s first weekend at the box office yet I found it engaging and funny; the music throughout the movie is great! There’s a definite set-up to another movie.

‘The Wild Life’ Movie Review

A daring parrot recounts how Robinson Crusoe came to be stranded on a tropical island. Nothing exciting nor any voices you’d connect with.

‘When the Bough Breaks’ Movie Review

For the most part, the storyline is predictable but it’s engaging enough with a few twists to hold your attention. Sexy couple…they want a baby…hire a surrogate…the surrogate is cray-cray!

3 stars out of 5

‘Sully’ Movie Review

sully-banner

Based on the miraculous true story and book we get to see what actually happened on this flight as it descended to the Hudson River. I found this movie incredibly moving…even to tears. It’s not often that a potential tragic accident can turn into a miraculous landing on water and 155 people surviving. There’s footage at the end of movie of Captain Sully meeting with the real passengers from the flight. I saw it in IMAX and as usual it was a great experience.

4.5 stars out of 5
