Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see.
The Polar Express
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.
Fighting With My Family is a terrific story about a family who just happens to be in professional wrestling in the UK. It’s also the story of a young lady named Saraya-Jade Bevis who goes by Paige in the WWE who is the youngest ever women’s champ. This movie features former WWE champ and current box office king Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson who is a producer of the film. Vince Vaughn plays a talent coach who brings Paige to the development wing NXT and works her way to the main roster.
This song plays over the end credits of Captain Marvel. I had never heard the song before but it appeals to my “inner grunge” I never knew was there.
Avengers: Endgame is a magnum opus and by my estimation the greatest super hero movie ever made and also a really great film. The culmination of 21 movies that came before it Endgame is everything it needed to be and more. You don’t feel like you have been in a movie for over three hours because it goes by so fast. The dialogue and action keep you entertained and engaged from start to finish.
This is one of those movies with a galaxy of stars from all the previous films. I do believe its helpful to have seen all the previous titles so you can get full idea of what’s happening. One thing I do think is that you need to see it on a big screen. Don’t wait for this to come to home video.
The 91st Academy Awards are being handed out tonight and the ceremonies will be held without a host. There seems to be a focus on music this year which is interesting. It will be interesting to see who goes home with Oscars and I predict Rami Malek will win Best Actor and Bohemian Rhapsody or Black Panther I hope will win Best Picture. I am also hoping Lady Gaga wins best actress.
