Movie Review: Hidden Figures (2016)

  Hidden Figures is a positive and inspiring tale about the role three African-American women played in the NASA program. I LOVED this movie. It had me experience, so many different emotions. These women where amazing. What they did and how they changed the NASA program was spectacular. This story is based on a book,

Movie Review: Underworld: Blood Wars (2016)

  Underworld: Blood Wars OMG I’m so glad I didn’t see this in the theater. I’ve enjoyed the other Underworld’s. They aren’t great, but they where entertaining enough. Unfortunately, this one was a major disappointment. We get some good action, but the story was blah. The editing was not good and so the scenes didn’t

Movie Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

  I haven’t read the books, so I can’t compare what was in the book and what was in the movie. Sometimes that’s good; because the movie never lives up to the book. I thought the movie was a delight and entertaining enough. I really enjoyed the movies visual effects. This film was a little

Movie Review: Coco (2017)

  Went on opening day to see Coco with my son.  My boy is 6. He made it through the special feature of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, it was very cute, and then as soon as the movie started he was like I want to leave. This movie is too scary. I don’t want to watch. I

Movie Review: Angels & Demons (2009)

  I’ve never read a Dan Brown book. As a reader I should give the books a try. I know from previous experience that the movie is never as good as the book sometimes. The movie people try to cram a bunch of things in that never fully come across as we would hope or

Movie Review: Logan (2017)

  Logan What a major let down. I’ve enjoyed the Wolverine & X-Men series, but this one was bad.  The whole movie was a bunch of killing and violence. It makes for lots of action, but really it was too much; especially with a kid doing a lot of the  – stabbing. The movie was

Movie Review: Cars 3 (2017)

  Cars 3 was AWSOME. Really it’s a great movie for kids and adults.  We went to see Cars 3 on opening day. My 5-year-old son loved the move and he said I quote: “Can we see it again. That was AMAZING!!” He was glued to the screen from the opening scene to the very

Movie Review: Inferno (2016)

  I’ve not read the books by Dan Brown, but I did see The Da Vinci Code and loved it. I was hoping to get the same intense and engaging feeling as I did with The Da Vinci Code, but unfortunately Inferno lacked in many areas. From what I’ve read on other reviews. Those that

Movie Review: Despicable Me 3 (2017)

  Despicable Me 3 was cute, funny, and hilarious at times.  The Minions don’t dominate the film, but add laughs when they show up. The girls are adorable and we get to see Gru and Lucy’s relationship plus the added bones of a long lost twin brother popping up to tempt Gru back into the

Movie Review: Moana (2016)

  I loved this movie. It was wonderful. It’s truly a wonderful movie for kids and adults. This movie showcase how important the journey is. It also celebrates the pacific Island culture, their relationship with the ocean and islands as well as preserving their history and looking to the future. Yes, magic is mysterious, wondrous and could have

Movie Review: Legend of Tarzan (2016)

This isn’t the child Disney version of Tarzan. This one takes a look at the important historical aspect of the time period. The Legend of Tarzan (2016) movie moves on from the Disney version and focuses on a new chapter, where John Clayton the third aka Tarzan is living in London several years later around 1884 with

Movie Review: Kubo and the Two Strings

Kubo and the Two Strings is bold, daring, colorful, and heartbreaking. This movie is a unique tale set in ancient Japan. It’s rich in depth, the storytelling is inventive and fun, and the themes deal with family, reincarnation, and the strength of the human will. I LOVED Kubo. It was breathtaking. The care and detail
