‘Da 5 Bloods’ Netflix Movie Review

Da 5 Bloods

This film definitely has the usual Spike Lee vibe of combining historical footage and current day happenings. We find 4 long time friends who fought together in Vietnam. They decide that the time is right to go back to Nam to collect two things left behind. Old secrets are revealed and knowledge of secrets left there are revealed. The story bounces around yet there are scenes that are relevant of today’s Black Lives Matter movement. Marvin Gay’s “What’s Going On” is played throughout in different arrangements. Delroy Lindo delivers a good performance.

’21 Bridges’ Movie Review

21 bridges

Now, the fact is that there are 21 bridges to get off of Manhattan yet not one was attempted by the bad gus6in this movie, lol. Maybe 21 streets. The storyline kept me engaged to figure out who the bad guys actually were.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Movie Review

Endgame

So, I’m a serious #Marvel fan, therefore, I did enjoy the movie and there are many scenes that made me laugh, tear up and clap for all of the Avengers. For the first time, there are NO end credit scenes yet there is an end credit SOUND that must link somehow to the next phase of movies. I have seen it now two times, in IMAX & IMAX 3D; both nice formats. Now, please stop reading because SPOILERS are next:

1. I did NOT like that Nat/Black Widow is I guess, dead? I must research to find out if the character dies in the comic books. I think she may have been snapped back but they don’t know where yet.
2. I was a little surprised that Vision didn’t return in the time travel.
3. Loki is back when the Avengers travel back in time…there’s a scene that he steals a stone and disappears yet he never re-appears…maybe??? So there may be a twist in future movies about that.
4. I was quite surprised that when Thanos travels back in time, he is such a force for the Avengers to fight altogether. Even with Captain Marvel, Captain America with Thor’s hammer, Iron Man and Pepper suited up etc… it was still a losing fight battle against Thanos, smh.
5. I did not like Iron Man dying yet I’ve heard he dies in the comic books.
6. I did not like that Captain America returns back as an old man and gives up his shield to Falcon.
7. I was surprised that the 2 audiences thus far, that I’ve seen it with did not cheer when Falcon got the shield and when Nick Fury was shown at the end (I didn’t notice him when the Avengers returned).
8. Who was the random man standing with the Avengers at Iron Man’s memorial? He’s shown just before the Shield agents, Captain Marvel then Nick.
9. I have to research to find out what the “sound” means at the end of movie. Answer:  the sound is the same from ‘Iron Man 1’ when Tony was building his first suit.
10. I noticed that Gamora was not on the ship with the Guardians when they left yet she did fight with the Avenger ladies in the last fight scene.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Movie Review

Avengers Infinity War pic

I’m a diehard #Marvel fan and this 3rd installment of an Avengers movie did not disappoint. It was great seeing so many of the Marvel characters in one movie…NOT all of them are in the movie though.  Rumor is that the X-Men haven’t been written into the Avengers yet, because help is needed.  The movie is great and I have already seen it twice in IMAX 3-D and Dolby.  I enjoyed both formats.  Shout out to a fave #GOT character, Tyrion/Peter Dinklage with his cameo scene.  Yes, I plan to see it again and probably in a different format, Super E-Max.  There’s only ONE end credit scene.

‘Marshall’ Movie Review

Marshall banner

Based on a true story about Thurgood Marshall who would live to become one of History’s pioneers of civil rights and justice for people of color.  The accounts of the story are good and educational yet the overall storyline is not compelling with the acting and chemistry of the characters.  Still, definitely worth checking out.  FYI, there’s a cameo from Chili from TLC.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Movie Review

Captain America Civil War banner

I’m a Marvel fan, therefore, this is a winner-winner! I consider this movie an ‘Avengers’ movie because so many of them are in this one and a couple new ones (to the big screen) are introduced. The fight scenes are epic and it’s hard to choose a side. I went in undecided on which team I was on #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan If you’re an ‘Avengers’ fan you’ll love this one. There’s lots of humor. If you can see it in IMAX 3D, I’d recommend it! As usual, don’t leave until the screen goes black…there are two end credit scenes. P.S. I liked the new characters of #BlackPanther and #Spiderman (there independent movies should be great).

‘Gods of Egypt’ Movie Review

Gods of Egypt banner

Well if you like movies of this genre you’ll probably like it but the movie isn’t fantastic in anything but visuals. I did see it in 3D and it was visually stunning. The storyline is weak yet there’s humor to keep your attention. It will probably make more money Internationally than domestic. Once again I was happy to see a #GOT actor on the big screen (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

‘Get On Up’ Movie Review

get on up poster

Chadwick Boseman is great at biopics! This movie is just over 2 hours yet it could have been longer because in my opinion Mr. Brown’s story wasn’t told in depth…especially his darker side that we read about in the news. Overall, I did enjoy this movie and with this great ensemble cast the acting is great. Chadwick does a great job with the dancing, mannerisms and “geechy” dialect. It’s early to talk about Oscar worthy performances yet Chadwick’s depiction is great although the storyline could be stronger. There are 1st person scenes that the main character has that adds to developing of the storyline. The music is great!

‘Draft Day’ Movie Review

Draft Day

This movie isn’t just for men, I feel women will enjoy it as well. I expected a very slow film with a lot of football talk yet the storyline about the NFL draft held my attention and the conversations about football didn’t go over my head. I enjoyed seeing the business side of the sport. This is a film well worth checking out. I did of course recognize Deion Sanders yet there are several other NFL pros and/or NFL notables in the film that I didn’t recognize.
