‘The Woman King’ Movie Review

So, in one of Viola’s interviews she said the movie depicts tribal formalities that happened in West Africa in the 1800’s yet there was not a caption stating that before the movie began. This is actually the most entertaining movie I’ve seen in months in the theatre. Very entertaining with fierce fight scenes and an engaging storyline. From what I understand there is an end-credit scene (I left early yet I do think I will see in again this weekend). Heads up: the tribal accents are pretty thick, and some words are hard to understand; I wish the whole movie was captioned. Definitely worth checking out.

5 stars out of 5 (updated rating 9/16; I still stand that the accents are heavy so listen carefully; there is an end credit scene yet not worth staying for to me)

‘The Northman’ Movie Review

I usually love movies of this era, so this one starts off engaging and loses steam really fast. The storyline gets quite twisted. The best thing was viewing it in Dolby.

‘The Last Duel’ Movie Review

Based on a true story, a wife accuses a man of violating her and her husband challenges him to a duel that the entire town chooses their side. A grueling battle scene. It ends in my opinion showing who told the truth.

‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ Movie Review

Based on the true story Of Fred Hampton, the Chairman of the IL Black Panthers. I was educated on the activist journey this young man had in his short life time. Many historical stories have a judas in their camp, as did this one. Compelling acting! I experienced this story telling in the theatre; also showing on HBO Max for a limited time.

‘Greyhound’ Apple TV+ Movie Review

Visually this film was meant to be seen on the big screen and if it’s offered when theatres reopen, I will see it again. A WWII film at sea at it’s greatest depiction.

‘The Last Dance’ via ESPN

last-dance

No matter what your age was in the late 80’s-90’s, if you understood basketball then you know it was the best of basketball! I so enjoyed this documentary that is mostly narrated by the legendary Michael Jordan. I am a Detroiter and an original fan of the “bad boys” days of basketball that the Detroit Pistons created. As much as I love the City of Chicago, our hearts were crushed when the Bulls finally were able to overcome the Pistons to go to the NBA finals (which ended our 3-peat journey). The Pistons had to overcome the Celtics to get to the finals so it was inevitable that the Bulls with Michael Jorden would defeat us. I was little beside myself as the Pistons weren’t mentioned until episode 3 or 4? I know there still seems to be friction between Isaiah Thomas/Zeke and Jordan. I also enjoyed getting to know Jordan’s personality then and now. He really shows how motivated he was to become the champ he is now; there were emotional parts and episode 9 was emotional for more. Overall, the documentary doesn’t flow entirely with the timeline as it jumps all around. I really did enjoy this memory lane of the best era of basketball, especially for me a woman, lol. I watched all teams play during that era and I knew the best players and even the bench athletes, lol. Enjoy! P.S. I heard that ABC will air this 10-part documentary soon; I viewed via ESPN. P.S.S. I never write this much for a review, so you know I must have enjoyed it.

‘Midway’ Movie Review

midway

Based on the true story of another attack from the Japanese towards Americans after Pearl Harbor. Midway is an Island near Hawaii that was the next step in the Japanese to invade the Mainland. Heroism from U.S. forces ended their plans. I was totally engaged and enjoyed the history lesson. I viewed the movie in Dolby.

‘The Current War: Director’s Cut’ Movie Review

Current War

Based on true accounts of Thomas Edison discovering electricity and how George Westinghouse was fast on heels for any and all creative credentials.  With a new director finishing the film we have a fast paced 1800’s era of “last name” geniuses in one storyline.  I found the premise of the story quite engaging and it led me to google during the film and read more afterwards.  If you’re a history buff like me, you will enjoy it.

‘Judy’ Movie Review

Judy movie

The acting is stellar and should grab Renee a few nominations. The storyline is not engaging enough yet it was somewhat interesting learning about the actress (although since Judy’s children are not supportive of the film it’s hard to know what is factual).
