This is a special edition of “Thursday Night at the Movies w/The Movie Warrior”
What a way to start off 2017!
Based on a true story, “Hidden Figures” is a very eye opening, moving and entertaining movie.
In the 1960’s NASA employed a number of women of color who were Mathematicians and Engineers. These brilliant women helped NASA figure out how to get a man on the moon and then back to earth safely.
The movie chronicles these historic events while dabbling in the personal lives of the three main female characters. The story unfolds from there…
The movie is awesome! My only complaint is that the personal lives of the three main female characters, Katherine Johnson (Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Monae) should have been a bit more prominent in the movie. It would have been nice to find out how they actually got to NASA.
Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae were awesome in their roles. The entire cast was really good.
“Hidden Figures” is definitely worth a look and deserves all of the buzz it’s been receiving.
This is a 5 Star Movie!
