‘Darkest Hour’ Movie Review

Historians will love this movie!  I enjoyed revisiting what I learned about this era of time.  The movie is a bit slow yet full of great acting.  Gary Oldman should definitely get an Oscar nomination.

‘Goodbye, Christopher Robin’ Movie Review

Goodbye Christopher Robin movie

Based on the true story of Christopher Robin who is the little boy of whom “Winnie the Pooh” was created. He had a loveless childhood from his parents yet a strong loving relationship with his nanny. The imagination of Christopher and his mother started the whole concept of Pooh and all the other characters. His father penned the characters into storybooks which became famously known yet Christopher never wanted the fame and became unpopular in school which led him to never take a penny of profit from the characters so many people love today.  The young Christopher did a great job depicting this true story.

‘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.

5 stars out of 5

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.

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).
