‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ Movie Review

billy-lynns-banner

19-year-old Billy Lynn is brought home for a victory tour after a harrowing Iraq battle. Through flashbacks the film shows what really happened to his squad – contrasting the realities of war with America’s perceptions. Now, I found this movie to be VERY slow as it didn’t hold my attention although it’s a genre of movie that I usually enjoy. A few A list celebrity cameos and roles.

Based on the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, they fought for their love all the way to the Supreme Court. After arrests and years of waiting for the law to award in their favor, finally justice was won. Their love has a sad ending. The movie is slow with little dialogue yet it’s a beautiful story.

‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Movie Review

rules-dont-apply-banner

I’m unsure if this movie is based on all true accounts (I checked just a little) but one thing for sure is that Howard Hughes was a recluse and had to have drove his employees crazy with his antics. Overall the movie was okay yet give a view inside of what it must have been to work for Mr. Hughes. There’s a love story…actually two of them.

‘Moana’ Movie Review

moana-banner-2

Here’s a new Polynesian themed animated movie for all to enjoy. The screen is lush in color and become even more beautiful when the storyline takes a dives into an below ocean world. Dwayne holds the tunes well enough to carry his character, Maui. Fun for the child at heart. yes, I saw it in Real D 3D yet I don’t think the few extra bucks is necessary to enjoy the fullness of colors and fun on the screen.

‘Bad Santa 2’ Movie Review

bad-santa-2-banner

Well this naughty Christmas themed movie is back. I have yet to watch the 1st in its entirety so I can’t compare it. This one is raunchy and nasty. Fans of the original movie will probably enjoy this one. Yes, there are a few laugh out loud scenes. I was surprised to see Octavia Spencer is a cameo scene. There’s a back storyline that’s pretty sad.

The inspirational and true story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza who, after a near fatal car crash, which left him not knowing if he’d ever walk again, made one of sports most incredible comebacks. I was totally unfamiliar with this story and did not know he overcame this injury to defeat Boxer Duran, Wow!

‘The Edge of Seventeen’ Movie Review

I expected this female version coming of age story to have more laughs as the trailers were mis-leading (to me) that this was more of a comedy. The genre is more of a drama and depicts a 17 year old girl pretty good.

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Movie Review

fantastic-beasts-banner

Harry Potter fans can see how his journey began 70 years before he read his first book. Although this is a pre-quell to the Potter books and movies the special effects are of course much more dynamic and this will excite fans. I thought more was needed in the storyline as new characters were introduced. There’s a quick pic cameo of Zoe Kravitz but no scene; Johnny Depp has a quick scene. My comparison of Harry Potter and Newt is that, Harry led his movies better…hopefully this series will get better as J. K. Rowlings depend on her to dazzle on the big screen. Well, I guess everyone has to wait until the part 2 arrives in 2018 (there will be five movies). I saw it in IMAX and it was great; I may try and catch it in 3D and Dolby if I can find it.

‘Shut In’ Movie Review

I’m not a fan of scary or super-thriller movies but I thought I’d check this one out. Well, this one doesn’t disappoint with it’s thriller scenes. The storyline starts out simple enough yet there’s a twist and you may be surprised who’s the creepy killer, lol.
