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.

To say the least this movie is riveting and lives up to the title! Long only because there a lot of scenes without words (Leonardo). The cinematography is absolutely gorgeous. There are scenes that are hard to watch yet I made it through them (due to so much hype about the gory scenes I became desensitized). I do expect Leonardo to have a long awards Season with lots of wins! This movie is based on a true story. I did find it hard sometimes to understand what Tom Hardy’s character was saying (I think he picks these kinds of roles for some reason, lol).

There’s lots of running in this movie, lol. It’s a sci-fi flick that works for me. Reminded me of ‘Enders Game’ and ‘The Hunger Games’. There’s nothing deep about the movie; if you enjoy sci-fi flicks then you will enjoy this one. I only recognized one or two actors in the film and that was ok. It ends with a definite sequel promise.

Here’s a late Summer funny movie to check out. It’s not a “family” movie yet the synopsis is about a put-together family in route to pick up a large supply of marijuana and bring it back to the U.S. Well, as one would think there are many funny situations that occur in this trip. The cast of characters is pretty funny and I didn’t find Jennifer Aniston to be the star of the movie (even though I’m a fan of hers). There are really cute/funny out-takes at the end of the movie so don’t rush out the theatre. Worth checking out.
