Us - Jordan Peele

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

 

Can you ever forgive me

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

Aquaman (DC Universe)

I'm trying my best to be very fair and objective when i watch Marvel movies and DC movies.  But after seeing the weak Justice League production, I wasn't very inspired to see the new release of a DC character on their own.  Successful Wonder woman, Legacy Batman movies and Lackluster Superman reimagined movies.  But we gave the new Jason Momoa a chance to shine on his own as Aquaman.  

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Alicia and I finally get to see the sequel to the Fantastic beast series by JK Rowling. We highly enjoyed the first movie so we were looking forward to the sequel. Heavy with Star power our expectations were high for this one as well.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

BlacKKKlansman (Spike Lee)

We have been Spike Lee fans for years but he has been in a serious bad movie slump for years (not just our opinion look at the ratings). So we were real cautious of this movie coming out and if it would be another Cliche Spike Lee movie.  But when we read about the involvement of Jordan Peele producing this movie as well.  We had to give it a try and especially being based on a true story.  A black man tricking and joining the Klan.

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. 

Ant-Man and the Wasp (Marvel)

You all ready know, Alicia and I are marvel fans (not fanatics, I'm board line) so we had to go see the sequel to the Ant-Man first movie.  We enjoyed it and thought it was worthy for a sequel with the anticipation of The Wasp being premiered in the sequel so here we are on the premier weekend.  

Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy

Jurassic World (The Fallen Kingdom)

Since Alicia is so much of a dinosaur fan, We had to go see Jurassic world on the release week.  This is the third iteration of the Jurassic series and the second part of the Jurassic world series.  Looking forward to another fun and exciting Jurassic movie we go in very excited.

Three years after the destruction of the Jurassic World theme park, Owen Grady and Claire Dearing return to the island of Isla Nublar to save the remaining dinosaurs from a volcano that's about to erupt. They soon encounter terrifying new breeds of gigantic dinosaurs, while uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet

Bluebeard (Netflix) Korean

I started this drama because it seemed as though it would interest me and I would move on to something else a bit more creative.  This awkward twisted serial killer saga, tells the story about a doctor that overhears some suspicious and perhaps brutal killing of someone while they are sedated in his clinic.  This movie takes you on a plot twisting ride that makes you ask, am I right or am I wrong. Or Is it both.  Something to be prepared for.

 

A doctor finds himself in the middle of an unsolved serial murder case after discovering a secret from a sedated patient. When dismembered bodies show up close to home, he must solve the riddle before the killer realizes what he knows.

Deadpool 2

So Alicia and I loved the first movie for Deadpool and was looking forward to the next release.  This one seems to be about a lot of supporting characters with Deadpool in the center of it all.  We sit down laugh, scream and criticize the part 2 version of his second release of this Deadpool franchise.

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.
