Alliance

 I had the privilege of seeing Alliance on Broadway HD. In this time of lockdown it felt like a treat. Beautiful performances tell a harrowing story. I'm glad I had the opportunity to see it.

Resistance

The film Resistance tells the true story of Marcel Marceau helping the Fresh Resistance in World War II. It is a powerful story. Well done.

Brother to Brother

 The film Brother to Brother is a current day drama with roots in the Harlem renaissance. Brutal and honest. Good film.

Tina

I have always loved Tina Turner's work. The documentary Tina gives us the whole story and the whole person. What strength, what a career, what a talent, what a gift. I really liked this film.

Money Plane

 Rob a casino? Sure. In the air? What!?! Full of criminals? Uh oh. The movie Money Plane takes a different turn on the heist story with pretty good results. This was a decent rental.

The Mitchell's vs the Machines

 In The Mitchell's vs the Machines we go on an adventure with a family and not everyone wants to be there. The is teen angst, awkward Dad moments and family dynamics that are easy to relate to. Then they meet the machines... This movie is funny, action-packed and very heartfelt. I liked it a lot.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters (1956)

In Godzilla:King of the Monsters Godzilla wreaks havoc. This early monster movie has impressive effects for 1956. Raymond Burr's character is intense, as reporter Steve Martin. I liked this film a lot.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

In Something Wicked This Way Comes there's a lot to unpack. Family, age, regret, desire, good vs evil, power. Impressive special effects. Well done and very dramatic, but a bit intense for a PG rating. Good rental
