‘Knives Out’ Movie Review

knives

I enjoyed this clever caper “who done it” murder mystery. The ensemble cast delivers with familiar faces such as other characters we love from other films such as Captain America, James Bond, Laurie Strode (Halloween) and others. The storyline is good enough to keep you wondering.

‘What They Had’ Movie Review

What They Had banner

Based on the Directors family on what her family had to learn and endure when her mom became ill with Alzheimer disease. There a lot of heart and some humor. It’s heartbreaking to see how the illness affects the family.

’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 Shape of Water’ Movie Review

The Shape of Water banner

Although the genre is not identified as sci-fi that’s what I would label it.  This is of course an odd pairing…an water monster and a mute cleaning lady.  Well, loves blossoms between the two yet there’s a hunter who wants the monster under his control.  There’s  a little humor along the way.

‘Nocturnal Animals’ Movie Review

nocturnal-animals-banner

I had high hopes for this much anticipated thriller and for the most part it lived up to the hype. The screenplay of the book was “the movie” in my opinion as it was suspenseful and intense. What’s unclear to me is a final scene…I don’t know who pulled the trigger. Some of the movie (the book) is very hard to watch. Overall, it’s a pretty good movie and it held my attention the entire time.

‘Elvis & Nixon’ Movie Review

This is actually a true story. Who would have ever thought the King of rock and roll would want to meet the President of the United States. Well, Elvis did. There are so many laughs in this movie and that’s what will keep you entertained. It was even funny to me seeing Nixon’s performance by Spacey…laughable out loud.

‘Midnight Special’ Movie Review

Midnight special banner

Here’s a sci-fi movie that gets it right. I’m a big fan of the sci-fi genre and this film is well acted with a storyline that’s engaging. We have a little boy that has a special power…coming from his eyes and he’s being led by aliens to a special place to be found. Well the government is trying to find this little boy as well who’s being protected by his father and a friend.

Honestly, this is such a depressing storyline that it’s hard to like the movie. I will say Michael Shannon delivers an impressive performance.
