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!!
“Deepwater Horizon” is based on the true story about the worst oil spill in American History. The events are played out in the movie in painful fashion. Director Peter Berg really gives you an inside look at the good, bad and the very ugly of a horrific event.
As the events play out you will be on the edge of your seat. The tension mounts in pain-staking fashion. You will also be disgusted at how this all happened. Corporate (BP) greed takes center stage. Eleven lives were lost in this event. Those eleven lives were recognized at the end of the movie. The oil spill continued for 87 Days.
“Deepwater Horizon” is one of the better disaster movies. The movie is executed very well. The performances were awesome. There are many great panoramic views and the camera angles are mystifying. You won’t be bored.
If you can stand seeing a horrific event play out on the big screen, I say check out “Deepwater Horizon”.
This is a 4 Star Movie!
“Mother’s Day” is a star-studded Dramedy that doesn’t quite meet the mark.
There are five different dramedies going on simultaneously in “Mother’s Day”. Each drama all boils down to the Mother or lack thereof in each person’s life.
The movie definitely has its hilarious moments. At least three of the dramedies are down-right silly, but at the end of the day the movie is unfulfilling.
From a Comedic stand-point Jennifer Aniston holds her own. From a more serious stand-point Julia Roberts holds her own. The script seems flat and everyone else in the movie is running in place.
There have been other star-studded holiday movies such as “Valentine’s Day” and “New Year’s Eve”. “Mother’s Day” is the worst of the lot.
This is a 1 Star Movie!
