In “King Richard” we get a view into the humble start of Venus and Serena Williams tennis careers. Richard Williams had a plan, a 78-page plan that he executed on and was determined to get his daughters, Venus and Serena into the Tennis Record Books. This movie is about that journey.
The story starts off with the Williams family’s early life in Compton, CA. The Williams sisters trained on the neglected tennis courts in Compton, often times late into the evenings. Their Mother, Oracene provided the balanced perspective and great intuition to help keep the girl’s lives as normal as possible. The story continues to the family’s move to Florida and Venus’s signing with Reebok.
The movie is very moving! The execution is good. Will Smith is very impressive as Richard Williams.
If you are a fan of Venus and Serena Williams, this movie is definitely worth a look.
“King Richard” is in Theaters and Streaming on HBO MAX
This is a 5 Star Movie!!
Finally, “Eternals” from the Marvel Universe hits the big screen.
In this installment the backstory plays a large part in setting the stage for how the “Eternals” came to be. A group of Ancient Aliens who came to Earth and had been living in secret for thousands of years makes their presence known following the events of the “Avengers: Endgame” an unexpected tragedy forces the “Eternals” out of the shadows to reunite together against mankind’s most dangerous enemy, the Deviants. The story unfolds from there…
I had high expectations for “Eternals” since it is part of the Marvel Universe, but alas “Eternals” does not live up to the high stands of past Marvel Universe productions. The first 45 minutes was very entertaining and I thought I was in for a great ride. Along the way the movie sags under so many different small plots and different stories that are hinted upon that you will find yourself conflicted and maybe a bit confused.
The cinematography is on point. There are some really great special effects, a lot of action and combat. The door was left open for another installment. Maybe a 2nd installment will come together better.
“Eternals” is only playing in theaters and not on a streaming service.
If you are a Marvel fan, you will want to see “Eternals” and judge for yourself.
This is a 3 Star Movie!!
