‘Logan Lucky’ Movie Review

To say the least, this movie is funny and stupid at the same time. The journey that these men take to rob Nascar during a race is well planned…or is it? There’s a hilarious scene about #GameOfThrones.

‘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).

‘Kidnap’ Movie Review

Kidnap banner

It’s assumed that this strong willed mom will get her son back by the movies’ end, therefore, it is somewhat predictable. There were a couple or so twists in the last half hour that were unexpected (in my opinion). Definitely a thriller with intense scenes that kept me a bit on the edge of my seat. Overall, it’s entertaining and I liked it; it’s worth checking out.  P.S. I liked the scene that kinda reminds one of Jason (Friday the 13th), lol.

‘Detroit’ Movie Review

Detroit movie banner

INTENSE and it’s a hard movie to refer people to go and see.  Based on true accounts from the 1967 riot in Detroit this movie focuses on the murders of three young men at the Algier’s motel.  Is the movie totally factual?  No.  I had a quick conversation with  a relative of Fred Temple’s and the movie does not tell the story of what actually happened and I noticed a couple things that didn’t tie in well.  What’s important about this movie is that it depicts a big part of history that I wasn’t as aware of as I thought.  I was sad, angry and drained all at the same time.  The worst thing about the movie is that the same senseless murders by police officers are still happening in 2017 and even with modern technology from cell phone videos etc… bad cops are still getting away with murder.  Not all cops are bad cops…I know of good ones.  I believe there will be Oscar nominations as this movie had stellar performances.

‘Dunkirk’ Movie Review

dunkirk movie

This is probably the loudest movie I’ve ever seen/heard yet the loudness gives riveting realism to this war movie that is of course based on a true story. There’s not a lot dialogue to really explain what’s going on yet you will be engaged with every word spoken. I saw it in IMAX.

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Movie Review

War for the Planet of the Apes banner

Finally one in this franchise that I liked.  The storyline is good as it starts slow (especially with lots of subtitles) to build each character.  It seemed to me that the franchise has shifted to go in another direction and to me, it’s for the better.  The CGI is much better than in the other two.  Good action, humor and heart warming.

‘The Beguiled’ Movie Review

The Beguiled banner

When you get a house full of catty women some of which some who may have never touched a man, then know problems are coming. The storyline intention is good yet it could have been way more intense and dramatic….to make it a good movie like the promos made it seem.
