‘The Glass Castle’ Movie Review

The Glass Castle banner

Based on a true story and a book, this movie is about the dysfunctional mindset of the father of a family. The dysfunction he lived in as a child manifested into his own family. The horrific lifestyle he has his wife and children living in is a nightmare. It’s not all darkness, there’s humor and love. Great acting and chemistry of actors (of all ages).

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Movie Review

War for the Planet of the Apes banner

Finally one in this franchise that I liked.  The storyline is good as it starts slow (especially with lots of subtitles) to build each character.  It seemed to me that the franchise has shifted to go in another direction and to me, it’s for the better.  The CGI is much better than in the other two.  Good action, humor and heart warming.

‘Wilson’ Movie Review

This movie is a laughable train wreck from the beginning. What you think won’t be said or happen, does and it’s laugh out loud ridiculously funny.

‘The Edge of Seventeen’ Movie Review

I expected this female version coming of age story to have more laughs as the trailers were mis-leading (to me) that this was more of a comedy. The genre is more of a drama and depicts a 17 year old girl pretty good.

‘Now You See Me 2’ Movie Review

Now you see me banner 2

I really enjoyed the first movie as I did this one yet it isn’t as captivating as the first. The storyline is okay and there’s still humor but it didn’t draw me in this time yet I would recommend fans of the original movie to see this one.

‘Triple 9’ Movie Review

I really enjoy this bank heist movie that has a great ensemble cast. My attention was held throughout and I think it is really underrated. The chemistry is great within the cast. There are storyline twists that I didn’t expect. This is a great role for Chiwetel Ejiofor that I enjoyed seeing him in and I hope he takes more roles like this.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Movie Review

The final installment is in theatres now and Mockingjay 2 didn’t disappoint. I was truly bored with M.J. 1 and had hoped for a better movie to end this franchise. I didn’t read the books but I’ve seen all of the movies. There’s some great action scenes and the storyline returned to what I have enjoyed minus M.J. 1. IMAX is always great and I really enjoyed it in that format. Once again, I enjoyed seeing another #GOT actor on the big screen, Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth). My fave of the franchise was the second movie, ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’.
