Pam and I go to the movie theater often. In the last couple of years, I can’t recall the movie theater being as packed as it recently has. I believe there’s one movie that has caused families to flock back to the theater. That movie?
You may remember the original Frozen movie from 2013. Frozen released to great fanfare. And for good reason. The original Frozen movie was fantastic. From memorable songs such as Let It Go to amazing animation. The original Frozen was a winner.
We’re now six years out from its original release. Frozen 2 has now hit the theater. People are coming in droves to the theater.
Frozen 2 continues where Frozen and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure left off. Elsa (Idina Menzel) is the queen of Arendelle. Though she’s the queen, she feels a strange pull to another land. A strange land. A land her mother had warned her and Anna (Kristen Bell) of. Read more...
21 Bridges is a hot new release that faces some stiff competition. Released on the same weekend as Frozen 2, the sequel to the original Frozen movie, 21 Bridges has an uphill battle to win. However, if you’re able to leave the kids at home (or send them to see Frozen 2), you will be able to see a thrilling cop drama.
21 Bridges tells the story of NYPD detective Andre Davis (Chadwick Boseman from Black Panther). His world is turned upside down as a massive manhunt begins for two cop killers, Michael (Stephan James) and Ray (Taylor Kitsch).
The story goes even deeper as Andre realizes something isn’t right with the narrative being told about the murder of 8 cops. There is a dark web being spun. And it’s not by the cop killers. Read more...
There have been many great movies released in 2019. From the Marvel blockbuster event of Avengers: Endgame to Rambo: Last Blood to the surprisingly good Pokemon: Detective Pickachu, 2019 is a year of great movies.
Then there are the movies that are going to stand the test of time. I believe Endgame will be one of those. Alongside Endgame will be the new release of Ford V Ferrari. Ford V Ferrari tells the story of automotive designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and Ken Miles (Christian Bale), a British race car driver. These two believed they could rival the multi-winning Ferrari and bring Ford a victory at the 24-hour Le Mans race.
You will feel like you were transported back in time with Ford V Ferrari. The costumes were authentic to the period. So are the depictions of the Ford automotive factory in Detroit, Michigan. Read more...
Olympus Has Fallen is the 2013 movie that started the Fallen series with Gerard Butler. Additional entries in this film series are: London Has Fallen and Angel Has Fallen.
Mike Banning is the hero of these stories. He has to frequently rescue the President of the United States or other governmental officials. Through it all, he comes out on top.
In this first movie, Banning is a disgraced Secret Service agent. His failure? Letting President Ben Asher’s (Aaron Eckhart) wife, Margaret (Ashley Judd), die after a car accident.
Banning had a choice. He could save the President’s wife or he could save the President. Being a Secret Service agent, he had to choose the President.
His choice changed the trajectory of his career. It also allowed him to become the hero in Olympus Has Fallen. Read more...
“I’ll be back…” are the famous words spoken by Arnold Schwarzenegger in his iconic role as a Terminator in the original movie. And he has been back… Again and again.
Terminator: Dark Fate is the sixth movie in the Terminator series. However, it doesn’t take place as the sixth movie.
Terminator: Dark Fate takes place in the same timeline as The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. If you’ve watched Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation, or Terminator Genisys, those movies take place in an alternate timeline.
Dark Fate takes place 28 years after Judgement Day. There’s now a new threat. The machines have now sent a Rev-9 Terminator (Gabriel Luna) unit to dispatch a young woman, Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes). She is the hope for the future resistance. Read more...
