This week Alicia and I went to support Black movies and Issa Rae for her new feature film about a black woman entrepreneur that bullies everyone until she is reversed into her old self and has to face the world as child under the same conditions. Not my normal film would go to see but this one seemed a lot more interesting.
Now this fast pace action super drama is somethingI didn’t expect even though the reviews said to be prepared. A triad soldier decides to go against the wishes of the clan based on the killing of a little girl. Then he becomes the target. But he is not so easily to kill. Over the top some times and very gory. But Very entertaining.
Ito, a gangland enforcer, is caught amidst a treacherous and violent insurrection within his Triad crime family.
We get to see the final part of the trilogy superhero series from M. Night Shyamalan. Not hailed very highly by the critics, but if you saw the previous “Split” and “Unbreakable”. You Know where this was headed. We give our opinions about this new release by M. Night.
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass. From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
So this one was another one of those movies that I hoped I would learn from as well as observe how so many government politicians welded power. Sitting through this I almost forgot about the corruption of the Bush administration as well as how our government was infiltrated by power hungry bureaucrats. Pretty amazing satire of true events of Dick Cheneys life.
Governor George W Bush of Texas picks Dick Cheney, the CEO of Halliburton Co, to be his Republican running mate in the 2000 presidential election. No stranger to politics, Cheney's impressive résumé includes stints as White House chief of staff, House Minority Whip and defence secretary. When Bush wins by a narrow margin, Cheney begins to use his newfound power to help reshape the country and the world
Today we continue on our Oscar roll of movies and nominated actors (male and Female) Since Glenn Close won the Golden Globes. We decided to check out this controversial movie that centered on a great performance by Glenn Close. I wife taking the back seat to a supposed Noble Peace prize winner.
Joan and Joe remain complements after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man's wife. As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.
We thought this would be one of the must see movies of the fall since Alicia and I were readers of the Stieg Larsson millennium trilogy. From The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to the 3rd book The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, This release was based on the posthumous release released in 2015 under the Swedish title Det som inte dödar oss (literal English translation: That Which Does Not Kill Us); the English title is The Girl in the Spider's Web . This is that movie.

Now, Lisbeth and an unlikely ally must race against time to save the boy and recover the codes to avert disaster
This independent movie made by rapper Boots Riley from the rap group "The Coup". Was something Alicia and I saw previews on it and couldn't wait to see. This strange and controversial movie is a strong commentary on labor and social interactions in our society today. It takes a turn towards the end but we left the theater with a good feeling about this creative well acted movie that critics are really ranting about.

Today, in-between the so called summer movie blockbusters. We decide to check out a comedy. Something that seemed to be interesting and funny at the same time. Tag, a true story about childhood friends that take one month out of the year to play the child's game of Tag with grown adults.Previews were somewhat hilarious so we took a chance.

This time, the game coincides with the wedding of the only undefeated player. What should be an easy target soon becomes an all-out war as he knows they're coming to get him
Alicia and I take a late night showing of an independent horror movie by the interesting production studio A24. The critically acclaimed hit Hereditary. A suspenseful Rosemary baby type horror drama that makes you keep up with so many details that you might just miss what was coming. Amazing movie

There's a big buzz about this new horror movie that jumped out to number 1 at the box office. Critics are praising it and people are going to see it so I thought Alicia and I would go see whats all the bru haha was all about. Emily Blunt one of my favorite actresses is on screen with her husband John Krasinski (the office alumni). Alicia is not a horror fan but she is taking the plunge based on much of the talk and reviews.
