The Shack Movie: Let the Critics Say What They Want I LOVED It.

When I awoke this morning I wasn’t trying or even thinking about stepping on a landmine but after reading some of the critic’s comments about the new movie The Shack, I’m ready to go. LET ME START WITH MY ORIGINAL THOUGHTS I sniffled and snorted all through the movie choking down tears as I watched…

I Liked A Musical: Should I Be Questioning My Manhood?

When I was a kid my parents took us to a lot of musicals. I guess if you think back to the sixties a lot of movies were musicals. Musicals can be rather stupid. Music and dancing happen at moments when they aren’t supposed to in the real world. Let’s face it musicals usually have…

Sally Fields: I Really, Really, Like Her

I’ve never been a huge Sally Fields fan. Let’s face it she’s not in a whole lot of big movies and she’s not one of those actresses that comes to mind when you think of memorable films. But in “Hello, My Name Is Doris” I think Fields stands out as an actress who can do…

Movie Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane. Now That’s Frightening

10 Cloverfield Lane is one of the most interesting, truly scary movies I've seen in a long time. I'm not a "Scary Movie Guy" but this movie is not frighting in a "Haunted Way" but in a mind gripping "oh my gosh would that be horrible" kind of way. I like movies that make you…

Race: Not Just About Running: Movie Review

The Movie Race is the story of Olympic Great Jesse Owens. It is a remarkable story about, some of the usual things, perseverance, hard work and true grit. But this movie is so much more than a kid from the poor neighborhoods working hard and making it. It’s so much more than what can happen…

Movie Review: Lady in the Van

Lady In The Van is not the best movie I've ever watched but it was fun and interesting. The story is based on a "Mostly True" story of a homeless woman that ends up parking her van in the driveway of a London playwrights home for 15 years. Maggie Smith is amazing in the film…

45-Years: Love Hurts

  The new movie 45-Years is not a romantic movie in the typical sense of the word. This is real live, it’s harsh, honest and at time hard to watch. The movie is about a couple, whose 45-the wedding anniversary is coming up, when the wife learns of a relationship her husband has been hiding,…

Anomalisa: Don’t Waster Your Time…Or Money.

If you value your time do not go see this movie. What a waste of time! This is the most odd movie and if there is a deeper meaning (I see critics say there is) I didn't experience it or feel it.....at all. There's a sex scene when the male puppet or whatever he is,…

“Revenant” I’m Bored With Hollywood Blockbusters

Okay, I'm not going to be negative and I'd like to say some good things about this movie so lets start with the positive. Revenant is a very entertaining and exciting movie to watch. However, 2.5 hours of the main character wheezing and looking at bulging eyes up close to the camera is just a…

The Big Short: Our Big Lie (Movie Review)

As I watch this new movie The Big Short by Michael Lewis I understand better why God refers to people as sheep in the Bible. We used to own sheep and they are perhaps the most stupid creatures on the face of the planet. “The Big Short” will or should make you feel equally as…
