Outlaw King

If you are a fan of Braveheart, this is a movie for you.  Outlaw King was the opening night film for the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.  We saw it in Toronto and really enjoyed it.  Unfortunately, by the time we saw it, all of the talent had gone home.  The story begins during the […]

Hunter Killer

If you enjoyed The Hunt for the Red October you will love Hunter Killer.  With the predominantly military male cast, submarines and war ships, this movie is a winner.  It is exciting and visceral, and the ending is similarly satisfying.  The addition of the SEAL team is a nice touch.  With stars like Gary Oldman […]

Solo, a Star Wars Story

I enjoyed the new installment of Star Wars.  There are quite a few exciting action scenes.  Alden Ehrenreich is good as a young Han Solo, though he talks more than Harrison Ford.  Emilia Clarke is adorable as his love interest, Qi’ra.  Donald Glover is just as brash and confident as we imagined the young Lando […]

Game Night

Wow! What a fun movie.  Game Night is funny, exciting and delightful.  Jason Bateman (Max) and Rachel McAdams (Annie) have good chemistry.  Jesse Plemons (Gary) is fantastic as their lonely neighbor and Kyle Chandler (Brooks) is charming, even when he isn’t.  Directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein do an excellent job scaling the fine […]
