All things movies.January 13, 2017 at 1:53 pm #3713
I watched Sully a couple weeks ago and really enjoyed it.
It brings tears to my eyes when anything happens in NYC. The movie had such a range of emotions. It was such a compelling film on different levels. As a bystander, I cannot imagine seeing something like that and not thinking “terrorist”. The way the emergency responders just moved into action and their first instinct is to simply help. And then of course the ones involved from Sully to the people standing on the wings – I can only imagine what it felt like to have 2 feet on solid concrete.
I really liked the scene where the committee was analyzing his response and how Sully responded and walked them through it. That’s a lot of pressure to live with.
Great film!January 16, 2017 at 6:20 am #3725
I want to see that! We still want to take Rhett to see Rogue One, just haven’t had the chance, hopefully before it leaves theatersJanuary 31, 2017 at 1:56 pm #3823
I am in love with the new Beauty and the Beast trailer. It looks so good! Gaston cracks me up. The costume and casting are so perfect. lolFebruary 1, 2017 at 12:04 pm #3825
I love the new B&B trailer too. My only issue thus far is the animation – I adore Lumiere and Cogsworth and Mrs Potts in the original disney animation, but there’s something about these versions (especially Lumiere) that doesn’t sit well.April 27, 2017 at 1:24 pm #4104
Beauty and the Beast was really well done. I don’t think Emma Watson should give up her day job to go record an album, but the rest was definitely worth watching (and probably owning in the future). There were sections that were literally scene for scene from the movie. And I loved that they made Belle the inventor instead of her father. I had some minor issues with the CGI (I always do) and how the servants/objects of the house were handled (I adore Audra McDonald, but the wardrobe drove me up a wall). I wish directors and producers would study and talk to Peter Jackson more. He handled the CGI is LOTR so, so well.September 19, 2018 at 1:23 pm #5307
The Greatest Showman – LOVE it! Great choreography & Soundtrack. Makes me love Hugh Jackman even more.
Crazy Rich Asians – OMG so entertaining. Nailed all the asian cultural traditions and stereotypes. I’m gonna grab the books and read them over the holidays. 🙂
I saw the trailer for The Hate U Give and made me really want to crack open the book. I want to see the film but will be reading it first.September 20, 2018 at 2:12 pm #5308
I didn’t know that THUG was going to be a movie. That is cool. I am starting the book today, so I would definitely see the film eventually. I want to see Crazy Rich Asians! There’s not a whole lot that I want to see, but I would definitely see that.April 2, 2019 at 11:22 am #5836
We watched Dumbo over the weekend. I liked it well enough, mostly for the nostalgia. I found that I liked the nods to the original much more than the added plotlines. The opening music, the pink elephants, ‘Baby Mine’….
Now the rest?? Eh.
I thought the acting was subpar. If they’re going to add the subplots, then flesh out the characters more. Everything seemed so watered down.April 11, 2019 at 9:56 am #5839
We saw it when it came out too. Rhett loved how cute Dumbo was. I didn’t used to like Colin Farrell, but I don’t mind him too much anymore. I thought the movie was kind of bad. Danny deVito was good. I like him. Rhett was freaked out that “Matilda’s mean dad is the ring master” haha! The little girl was terrible. I don’t want to hate on child actors, but her line delivery was awful. The little boy was fine. The plot was terrible. Tim Burton is definitely not what he used to be. The movie could have been so much better. I feel like Burton watered himself down, maybe so the movie didn’t seem too “dark.” I don’t know, oh well. We definitely like the old cartoon version better!
