‘The Founder’ Movie Review

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.

‘Jackie’ Movie Review

jackie-banner

This movie is depicts Jackie Kennedy’s viewpoint of the assignation of her husband John F. Kennedy. I think Natalie Portman gives a stellar performance yet I am not familiar with the mannerisms of Mrs. Kennedy. It’s a good movie about the reality of what she had to deal with and handle. It’s sad and we see a gory scene of the shooting. I was looking to see the recreation of John-John saluting his dads casket yet it wasn’t in the movie. I expect to read about many award show nominations.
