We get to see the last Marvel movie of the year. With End game still leaving us sad, we get a light hearted view of Spiderman. A young boy trying to make adult decisions in an unstable world. We actually didn’t expect much from this one. But was pleasantly surprised.
Not our regular movie to go see but when I heard this was a Luc Besson action film. I was going to at least check it out. This action thriller of a Russian model /assassin tries to get her life back by doing jobs that would get her out of the KGB but keeps caught up with the CIA and her KGB handlers.
We sit down and binge watch the new Twilight zone narrated by Peele. His unique view of twisted reality and fantasy on a different level made us want to watch these episodes and see how he painted anew picture of stores originated by the late great Rod Serling
We watched Peele on his show a few times and felt he was a funny dude with a creative mind. But after seeing Get out and knowing he was one of the producers of Spike Lee's Black KKKlansman. We couldn't wait to see his next creative project. So with any of us knowing what this was all about. We were looking forward to understanding this new concept of doppelgängers terrorizing a family and why. A complicated plot and right in the middle of the new generation horror films. This was a very good movie to watch. Also an amazing performance by Lupita Nyong'o
Alicia and I are big fans of Melissa McCarthy so when she does something that catches our eye or something outrageous. We make an effort to see her. This being her first staring dramatic role, We had to see what she would do. Based on a book written by Lee Isreal a well known writer who falls down on her luck and starts to make money off of deception
This Movie was not on my list of must see even though it was an African American movie until I realized it was directed by Barry Jenkins. The brilliant writer directer of Moonlight (Oscar winning). Jenkins took the book written by James Baldwin and wrote the screenplay for this amazing romantic dramatic movie about two young lovers. Sadly it goes from Romance and love to drama and tragedy that you see intimately through out the movie. Should have been on the list for best movie of the year.
This very interesting movie made by the Director: Yorgos Lanthimos with his two odd movies The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer Has created this piece period about a frail Queen who needs assistance from her close friend to help her govern the nation but gets interrupted with a new addition to their relationship. A former aristocrat who is the cousin of the Queens friend, who moves in to become the favorite to the Queen. Then all hell breaks out
In the early 18th century, England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne, and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead, while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing, and Abigail sees a chance to return to her aristocratic roots
This week i took a little more time than normal to watch a 18 episode Korean TV series called “Black”. A supernatural/serial killer drama that seemed very different for what I was use to with Korean TV series. A very good and creative series.
Black is the story of a grim reaper who is forced to track down his fugitive partner. In the process, he uncovers the truth about a series of cold case murders from 20 years ago. Investigating the murders complicates the reaper's primary role of guiding the deceased to their respective afterlife, especially after he falls in love with a mortal woman - which leads him to break supernatural rules against involvement in human affairs
Alicia and I go to see one of our favorite actress, two upcoming black males and the amazing director Steve McQueen. This movie Widows was based on an 80’s British TV series that was rewritten by Steve and McQueen and Gillian Flynn (gone girl, sharp objects, Dark places) mixed review of this movie.
A police shootout leaves four thieves dead during an explosive armed robbery attempt in Chicago. Their widows -- Veronica, Linda, Alice and Belle -- have nothing in common except a debt left behind by their spouses' criminal activities. Hoping to forge a future on their own terms, Veronica joins forces with the other three women to pull off a heist that her husband was planning.
So the Daredevil series. I wasn’t a big comic book fan of his but he always showed up with some of the characters I liked. So I was familiar with the origin and a bit with the Frank Miller series as well. I jump in on the 3rd season even though I seen them all as they released. I go over it on my own because of my Marvel obsession and how i follow almost anything is released of Marvel Characters. Here's my thoughts.
"Daredevil" follows Matt Murdock, attorney by day and vigilante by night. Blinded in an accident as a child, Murdock uses his heightened senses as Daredevil to fight crime on the streets of New York after the sun goes down. While Murdock's day job requires him to believe in the criminal justice system, his alter ego does not follow suit, leading him to take the law into his own hands to protect his Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and the surrounding communities
