“Megan Leavey” is based on a true story about a Marine who after boot camp is assigned to the Canine Unit where Bomb Sniffing dogs are trained and then sent with their soldier into combat.
Megan Leavey (Kate Mara) gets assigned to “Rex” a German Shepherd. “Rex” didn’t like his previous soldier and actually bit him. Megan however is determined to change “Rex’s” behavior and make him the very best Bomb sniffing dog in the unit. Soon after training Megan’s unit deploys to Iraq. The story unfolds from there…
The story is heart-warming and at times sad. The movie has the ability to bring tears to your eyes. With that being said though, the movie is executed very well and is very entertaining and intriguing.
“Megan Leavey” is not billed as a big box office hit, but it’s definitely better than any other movies of its type that opened this weekend.
“Megan Leavey” is definitely worth a look.
This is a 4 Star Movie!
I love Matt Damon!! In “The Martian” he does not disappoint!!
A team of NASA Astronauts are on a manned mission on Mars. While members of the team are out performing routine tasks a storm brews in the distance. A quick decision as to whether to stay or go is made in a snap. While packing up and trying to get everyone back to the Space Shuttle to take off, the storm blows some heavy metal debris toward the team members as they are trying to run. Astronaut Watney (Matt Damon) is struck and buried beneath a lot of red dirt and is believed to be dead.
The team takes off and heads back to their Satellite station “Hermes” where they report the tragic incident to NASA officials. A few hours later Astronaut Watney wakes up. He’s badly injured, but very much alive. He gets himself to the team housing quarters and tries to repair his wound. The story unfolds from there…
“The Martian” is nail biting suspenseful, intense, intriguing, entertaining and very well executed. The movie is also moving and of “Epic” proportion. At times the cinematography is breath-taking.
“The Martian” will remind you of Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar”.
This “Science Fiction Epic” should not be missed!
This is a 5 Star Movie!
“Transcendence” is a Suspense Thriller that doesn’t Thrill!!
Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is a celebrated researcher in the field of artificial intelligence. Will is working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective thought intelligence of everything known and with the full range of human emotion.
Because of his genius Will becomes the target of anti-technology extremists who will stop at nothing to keep Dr. Caster from realizing his dream. The story unfolds from there…
I was unable to wrap my brain around this movie. I am sorry to say but, Johnny Depp should stick to the character “Captain Jack Sparrow” in movies like “Pirate of the Caribbean Dead Man’s Chest”. Rumor has it that “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales” is slated for 2016.
“Transcendence” was dry, lack-luster and flat. There were a few moments of suspense and intrigue, but that’s about it!!
The paid critics were dead on regarding “Transcendence”. Wait for DVD or Blueray.
