“Little” is about a super successful female CEO, Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall) who owns her own company, when the pressures of the day overwhelm her, she is given the chance to go back and relive her care-free youthful life. The story unfolds from there…
“Little” is cute. I expected more laughs. The movie did not turn out as funny as it appeared on trailers and previews. It is however a tastefully done comedy. The teenage set will get a kick out of this movie.
I am sure at one time or another we have all wished to go back to our childhood, in “Little” you get the chance to do just that.
This is a 3 Star Movie!!
What is supposed to be a fun family reunion turns into a nightmare when instead Madea and her crew arrive in Backwoods, GA and unexpectedly have to plan a funeral. The story unfolds from there…
This was the most boring of all the Madea movies. I did not find any aspects of the movie funny or entertaining. When the Madea franchise started she was entertaining and very hilarious!! But, as time moved on she became less funny and more cheesy.
“Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral” is supposed to be the last installment in the Madea Franchise. This installment should be going out with a bang instead it’s whimpering on its last leg as it exits stage left. The movie ended abruptly without warning. It’s like a live audience play that is brought to the big screen, although there are some key elements missing.
Don’t waste your money. Wait for Cable.
This is a 1 Star Movie!!
Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) is a successful Sports Agent in a firm that is primarily made up of men. Ali is constantly being boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali suddenly gains the power to hear what men are thinking, its game on and the tables are turned and Ali has the chance to sign the NBA’s next biggest star. The story unfolds from there…
There is plenty of comic relief in “What Men Want” but the movie for the most part is nonsense. Taraji P. is great in the movie, but most of the supporting cast was a bit boring. Taraji P. is a strong actor and therefore the supporting cast needs to be strong. Aside from Richard Roundtree, you do not get this combination in “What Men Want”.
This is a 2 ½ Star Movie!!
Based on a true story, “The Upside” is about a paroled ex-con, Dell (Kevin Hart) who must find a job. After several failed attempts to become gainfully employed, Dell applies for what he believes is a janitor position for a billionaire. As it turns out the position isn’t a Janitorial position it’s a position to help the paralyzed billionaire, Phil (Bryan Cranston) with everyday chores like dressing, bathing, eating etc…It does not appear to be a good fit, but the billionaire sees something in Dell and hires him anyway. The story unfolds from there…
“The Upside” is a mirror of another movie called the “Intouchables” that came out in the 2011-2012 time frame. There is an English version and a French version.
Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart play well together on the big screen. The movie was surprisingly entertaining and at times funny. There are several subplots/agendas that don’t quite play out, so you are forced to use your own imagination to figure them out.
When I go to the movies I don’t want to have to figure anything out. It should be all nicely laid out for me. This is the reason “The Upside” is not a 5 star movie, but it is still worth a look.
This is a 3 Star Movie!!
“Ant-Man” is funny and silly, nothing like “Infinity War and Black Panther” where there is an emotional investment in the characters.
This second installment of the “Ant-Man” franchise sort of picks up where he left off in the first installment, but also including “Ant-Man’s” appearance in “Captain America: Civil War”.
Currently Scott Lang (Ant-Man) (Paul Rudd) is under house arrest. He has two days left and he will be free, but Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his daughter, Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) need the Ant-Man’s help.
“Ant-Man” has a dream about Hank’s wife Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) who went missing after a mission some twenty years ago. Hope somehow removes the ankle bracelet from Scott and gets him out of his house without the local authorities being alerted.
On another front there is someone from Hank’s past who could use his help but doesn’t ask the usual nice way. The story unfolds from there…
“Ant-Man and the Wasp” has several small back stories that come together nicely to provide context and intrigue for this installment. The movie is funny, silly and interesting simultaneously. The cinematography and special effects are great. “Ant-Man” shows more range in this installment which makes his character a bit richer.
There is a small dead spot in the movie and that’s what keeps it from being 5 stars. It’s definitely worth viewing if you are a Marvel fan.
This is a 4 Star Movie!
Upon exiting prison, the estranged sister Debbie (Sandra Bullock) of the infamous conman Danny Ocean puts together a team for a brilliant heist that not only involves stealing some of the world’s most priceless jewels from the New York Met, but also allows Debbie to get revenge on an old boyfriend who caused her to end up in prison in the first place. The story unfolds from there…
“Ocean’s 8” is a nice change of pace from the usual norm on a comedy crime caper. There is an excellent cast, but the story is a bit weak in spots. It starts off great, but unfortunately fizzles during the last 30 minutes, but not enough that you shouldn’t see it.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!
“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!!
