‘Wonder’ Movie Review

Wonder movie banner

What a “wonder”ful movie that is full of heart! Based on the best selling book (and there’s a real Auggie as well) the struggle for a little boy with a facial difference to blend in at school and life in general is explored. There’s a scene in the movie where Auggie asks why everyone thinks he’s ugly? A girl in the theatre burst into tears. This is a good movie done well.

‘Smurfs: The Lost Village’ Movie Review

smurfs banner 2

My favorite little blue people are back on the big screen. This movie is truly for children; adults will like it but the storyline won’t engage you. The screen is lush with colors and all things smurfy. Is Smurfette really the only female smurf? The 3D was pretty good and worth spending the extra bucks.

‘Money Monster’ Movie Review

I wasn’t excited to see this movie as I usually don’t like George Clooney movies (minus the Ocean movies) yet I was surprised to like this one! There’s lots of humor, good acting and drama. Not a long movie so it held my attention.

‘Mother’s Day’ Movie Review

MOthers Day movie banner 1

This is the third movie in this franchise from director Gary Marshall and unfortunately since the first film, ‘Valentine’s Day’, the spark hasn’t been there. Overall, this movie is okay but with such A-list actors I had hoped for a better acting. There are a few poignant scenes but it’s just not a great movie.

‘Secret in Their Eyes’ Movie Review

Secret in their Eyes banner

Overall, this is a pretty good mystery/thriller movie. There are a few scenes where the physical violence is intense and unexpected. The acting is good and I enjoyed seeing Julia and Chiwetel in a different type of role. There’s a twist to the ending that I wasn’t expecting.

‘August: Osage County’ Movie Review (Oscar/Actor Cat.)

August Osage

Here’s a small town family with lots of dysfunctional issues! Good acting yet the movie isn’t spectacular. Slow in some parts and was a little boring until the next family issue came up. Still in select theatres or on vod via your cable provider. We’ll see this evening if Meryl wins again, lol.
