‘The 15:17 to Paris’ Movie Review

15 17 Paris banner

Based on the true story which is heroic and honorable in itself.  Most of this movie is the back story of the three young heroes and just a few minutes showing the scene which they take down the terrorist.  Not a bad acting start for the three heroes yet the movie overall is not engaging.

’12 Strong’ Movie Review

12 Strong banner

This movie is based on true accounts of a Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11. If it wasn’t a true story it would be hard to believe because the special forces team rode horses in battle against the enemy that had tanks.  I love movies based on true stories, therefore, I enjoyed learning about this classified and successful deployment.  I did enjoy seeing it in #IMAX.

‘The Post’ Movie Review

Journalists and those who work in government will really like this movie. The movie is slow in retro topics that in depth didn’t compel me to engage in this movie. The acting is good but not enough for me although with this being a film based on true accounts. Maybe I need to watch it again.

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.
