‘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.

Based on true accounts about the Armenian genocide this movie is a love story of two men being in love with one woman yet she truly only loves one of them. The love story has many twists yet the truth of what happened to many innocent people is shared.

The Zookeepers Wife banner

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).

‘Get Out’ Movie Review

This is not the genre of movie I usually watch yet I took one for the M.U.S.E. Enthusiasts team, lol. I was surprised that it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be and if I had just watched the movie without over thinking what else could happen, I would have enjoyed it more. There are scary and gory scenes and lots of humor. It ended the way it should have.

‘The Founder’ Movie Review

The Founder banner.png

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.
