‘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.

‘Dunkirk’ Movie Review

This is probably the loudest movie I’ve ever seen/heard yet the loudness gives riveting realism to this war movie that is of course based on a true story. There’s not a lot dialogue to really explain what’s going on yet you will be engaged with every word spoken. I saw it in IMAX.

‘The Hero’ Movie Review

I’m a big Sam Elliott fan and I found this film heartwarming and a big sexy, lol. An illness finds this seasoned actor looking at life differently while love enters his life again.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Movie Review

I’m a true fan of Marvel movies and am glad that Spider Man is officially linked to the Avengers on the big screen. This won’t go down as a favorite Marvel movie of mine yet I liked it. Lots of humor and great action at the end. I saw it in Dolby and it was great. Yes, there are two end credit scenes and the last one is quite funny.

5 stars out of 5 (generous rating…probably more like 4 stars)

‘The House’ Movie Review

Not being a Will Ferrell fan, I was happy that I ended up laughing (and sometimes out loud) at this movie. All of the characters had chemistry with one another. Don’t expect a storyline that makes any sense…this one is for laughs only. The outtakes are funny as well. Pharrell has new music in this movie.

‘Baby Driver’ Movie Review

I didn’t expect to like this movie as there was a similar movie released not long ago (and it was horrible). This movie has heart in the development of the lead character, Baby. There’s fast driving that leaves you thinking, how did they get away? Some scenes are not realistic but this is a movie.  It held my attention the entire time.

‘Beatriz at Dinner’ Movie Review

What starts as a weird comedy turns dark and then even darker. Salma’s character is as friendly as can be yet her views and judgment about another character shifts the storyline to what seems a thrilling ending but the dark ending is yet to come.
