‘The Glass Castle’ Movie Review

The Glass Castle banner

Based on a true story and a book, this movie is about the dysfunctional mindset of the father of a family. The dysfunction he lived in as a child manifested into his own family. The horrific lifestyle he has his wife and children living in is a nightmare. It’s not all darkness, there’s humor and love. Great acting and chemistry of actors (of all ages).

‘All Eyez on Me’ Movie Review

All Eyez on Me banner

I’m familiar with some of the music of the musical legend Tupac Shakur and I only knew a little of his story.  This movie gave me insight to his journey and purpose through music.  Had he survived the shooting I know his impact on music would be more impactful now.  I did enjoy hearing the music from the 90’s.  I wish the actors from ‘Straight Outta Compton’ that are the same in this movie had portrayed the same artists.  A couple of characters seemed to have the real artist voice dubbed into the movie which was great.  I saw this movie with the #DolbyTheatre experience and it was great!

‘The Lost City of Z’ Movie Review

The Lost City of Z

Based on a true story which I had never read about we find an explorer who is convinced that a City of humans exists deep in the jungle in the Amazon. The movie is slow yet the story is interesting. No one knows if the City was found as the explorer, his son and another man disappeared in the 1920’s. Over 100 people were sent to find/rescue them but they were never found.

Of all the new movies opening this weekend, this is my favorite! Based on the true story of a married couple that helped and saved lives of many people during the German invasion. Some scenes are hard to watch (especially for animal lovers).

‘The Founder’ Movie Review

This movie is obviously told from the perspective of Ray Kroc otherwise I think Ray would be depicted even more ruthless than shown in this film. Although, Ray definitely seems to be the motivator (with a lot of hard work) to get McDonald’s to where it is now. The founders, the McDonald brothers were “small town” thinkers and Ray took over turning McDonald’s into a corporation. The movie left loose ends never explaining when he stole his 3rd wife from a business partner and never giving detail about the McDonald family other than the brothers. So sad they never received royalties.  P.S. I would like to see a film from the perspective of the McDonald brothers.

‘Hidden Figures’ Movie Review

This true story is well adapted to the big screen. The premise focuses on three VERY smart black women who were employed by NASA in the 1960’s. All three women made their imprint with their intelligence. Everything about this movie is inspiring! A must see on a part of history that only few knew.
