Book Club

“Book Club” is absolutely “Hilarious!!”

Four middle aged women who went to college together continue to keep in touch with each other getting together to occasionally read a juicy book and to catch up on each other’s lives.

Each woman has her own personal drama. Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage. Vivian (Jane Fonda) likes her affairs with no strings attached. Sharon (Candice Bergen) is still dealing with an old divorce. Carol (Mary Steenburgen) is dealing with a sexless marriage.

New Romances enter the lives of Diane, Vivian and Sharon making life for them more interesting and chaotic. Carol seeks advice on how to get her husband to be romantic again. The story unfolds from there…

“Book Club” is entertaining and funny. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely an “Adult” movie. There is no profanity, but there are adult situations. The movie could be viewed as a “Chick Flick, but I think it can be enjoyed by all. There are parts of the movie that are truly relatable to real life situations.

Jane Fonda really looks great for her age!!

Check out “Book Club” for some “Light-Hearted” fun!!

This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!

Deadpool 2

Deadpool is one of the lesser known Marvel Universe characters. His antics and “In Your Face” verbiage is at times very offensive and very foul.

Wade Wilson (Deadpool) must bring together a team of fellow rogue mutants to protect a young boy who possesses supernatural abilities from the brutal time-traveling mutant called “Cable”. What Wade Wilson (Deadpool) learns is that “Cable” is not the only person that he must keep away from the young boy. The story unfold from there…

“Deadpool 2” is foul. The action, language and intensity is “In Your Face” offensive. There are some really cool stunts. The movie is really bloody and the language is not appropriate for young children under 15.

This installment starts off slow. It takes a while to get to something meaningful. At first I found myself bored, but half way through the movie things picked up and finished with a flourish.

I am a HUGH Marvel Universe fan but, as of right now I am not sure I would see another Deadpool installment. “Deadpool” is not one of my favorite Marvel characters. I did not really enjoy this second installment.

See “Deadpool 2” at your own risk.

This is a 2 ½ Star Movie!!

Breaking In

What a way to start May at the movies…”Breaking In” is so bad you will want to “Break Out” of your theater seat and leave…

Gabrielle Union is Shaun Russell, she has to save her children when they are held hostage in their home that has been designed with impenetrable security. Shaun Russell will stop at nothing to save her children. The story unfolds from there…

No real context of the events is provided. There needed to be a back story to set the stage, but unfortunately it was non-existent.

The only positives are Gabrielle Union did what she could with what she was given and the events happened quickly. Gabrielle Union will remind you of John McClane (Bruce Willis) from the Die Hard franchise.

No Need to waste your money wait for “Breaking In” on Cable.

This is a 1 Star Movie!
