THIS IS A REPUBLISH FROM OCT 17th 2017
“Marshall” is based on one of the early trials that Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall was involved in trying.
As a Young Civil Rights lawyer, Thurgood Marshall goes to Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) who is charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of a white woman who is his employer (Kate Hudson).
In attempt to get a fair trial, Thurgood partners with a local Jewish lawyer, Sam Friedman (Josh Gad). This movie portrays the injustices that are often executed in a segregated court. The story unfolds from there…
“Marshall” is awesome! The movie is extremely well executed and will hold your attention. The movie gives you a glimpse at just how great Thurgood Marshall was even in his early days as a young lawyer with the NAACP.
This is a 4 ½ Star Movie!!
Disney’s “Beauty and The Beast” is a “Live Action Visual Feast”!!
Belle (Emma Watson) goes in search of her father Maurice (Kevin Kline) after his horse returns to the village without him. The horse leads Belle through the forest to the castle where her father disappeared. Belle finds her father being held captive inside the castle. The Beast approaches, but Belle isn’t afraid of the Beast and offers to trade places with her father. The Beast doesn’t want to make a trade, but allows Belle to say good-bye to her father. Once she is inside the cell with her father she pushes him out and slams the door. The story unfolds from there…
“Beauty and the Beast” is an old animated story being told in live action with tremendous visual effects, beautiful cinematography and wonderfully updated music.
The movie is very entertaining and will hold your attention. The 3D aspects are very good. The cast is excellent with the enchanting servant voices being played by the likes of Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
This is a grown-up version of the classic tale, but can be enjoyed by everyone!!
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!
“A Walk Among the Tombstones” is a good movie, but not for the faint at heart!
Matt Scudder (Liam Neeson) a Private Investigator is hired by a drug kingpin to find the people who kidnapped and murdered his wife. Along the way to arriving at the awful truth, Matt must also deal with his own demons as he has flashbacks to a time long past.
As Matt digs into the gruesome details of this particular kidnapping/murder he finds a pattern that leads to other kidnapping/murders of woman who are somehow related to drug kingpins. The story unfolds from there…
As “A Walk Among the Tombstones” progresses it gets more and more suspenseful. There is plenty of drama, intrigue and tension to go around.
I mentioned earlier that this is not for the faint at heart. There are some very grizzly scenes and at times it’s a bit bloody.
Liam Neeson is awesome as Matt Scudder. If you like Suspense Thrillers this is a MUST SEE!
Actor Danny Devito is one of the producers of “A Walk Among the Tombstones”. The movie is based on the best-selling novel by Lawrence Block.
This is a 3 1/2 Star Movie!
