Lin-Manuel Miranda is one of the greatest creators on broadway and on screen. He made a masterpiece in “In The Heights” which is about the Washington Heights neighborhood of NYC and its residents who are experiencing changes in the community and personally. This movie is a classic tale of friendship, family and celebrating Latin heritage.
This is a musical that brings some fantastic original pieces along with great choreography to the big screen. Miranda’s music is like a fireworks display with big booming numbers with subtle tunes. I really liked this movie and the Latinx cast was fantastic. Anthony Ramos as the lead character was mesmerizing and told the story of The Heights that sucked me in. I recommend this movie to everyone whether you see it in the theatre or on HBO Max.
Here are a couple of very relatable memes that will be something you can laugh at a little. I found these on The Facebook.
Everyone spells something very bad that your autocorrect goes haywire and has no idea what you are trying to say.
I like pulling up IMDB (Internet Movie Database) to see where an actor in a show or movie I am watching has been in before.
“Little Women” is a classic American tale of four strong sisters who love one another and are trying to make the best of the situation that the culture of the late 1800s that holds them back. The story has been made into movies for the cinema and mini-series for TV.
An all-star cast led by Greta Gerwig (who should have been nominated for an Oscar for best director for this adaptation) made a great movie for today’s audience. I really enjoyed the performances and the casting was great.
Themes of female empowerment are all throughout this as author Louisa May Alcott wrote it. However, empowerment is the freedom for women to make their own decisions about their own lives and to keep what they earn even in marriage.
It’s also a story about family sticking together no matter what happens in the world they live in even during a war. There are tragedies that impact the March family and their neighbors.
The March sisters were awesome and as I say the power of a woman who is free to be who she wants is unstoppable. Fangirls are one of the greatest forces for good past and present. This story is one of those that should remind women everywhere that sisterhood and friendship are vital. See this movie. It will move you and give you encouragement no matter if you are a little or big woman or even a man.
This is a great movie that brings together an all-star cast and a great romantic comedy story. It’s also very British so you know it has to be good. It’s not Christmas without this charming flick to heighten the holiday mood. Christmas is all around you know.
High School is a challenging time for people. There are cliques and groups that seem to be the vanguard of social importance in that environment. Tina Fey produced a film that captures all that angst and social relevance in the movie “Mean Girls”. I was not sure what to expect but Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, and Rachel McAdams are terrific in this movie that makes a statement about how girls seem to treat one another. It’s also a story about what real friendships are and how everyone wants a place at the table and to feel important.
And of course, there are the memes…
Downton Abbey is a world-wide phenomenon and has a global audience so a movie is what would take it to a new level. This movie takes what you love about the TV show and makes it bigger and in some ways better because of the big screen. The story of a big event coming to Downton makes the Crawley family and their downstairs team rise to the occasion. Seeing Highclere Castle in the cinema was awesome.
If you have never seen the TV show this movie will inform you along the way as to what hard core fans have learned about this family over six seasons on ITV in the United Kingdom and PBS in America. I so recommend this movie to everyone. It’s truly a great family drama which we need more of on TV and in the Movies.
