THIS IS A REPUBLISH FROM FEB 17th 2018
“Black Panther” is a bold departure from the normal Marvel Universe movie. The movie is extremely colorful, has visual interest and has a detailed back-story. The detailed back-story is played out and sets the stage for the events that happen throughout the movie.
“Black Panther” tracks T’Challa who after the events of “Captain America:Civil War”, returns home to eventually become king, but there is someone who has other ideas. The story unfolds from there…
“Black Panther” is extremely entertaining. The visual effects are awesome. There is plenty of action and suspense. The costumes adorned are beautiful. The cinematography at times is breathtaking.
One aside is that the villains are a bit weak…but this is the first installment. This first installment is off to a great start.
If you are even mildly interested in the Marvel Universe, “Black Panther” is a “MUST SEE”.
This is a 5 Star Move!
“Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Jedi” continues the saga from The Force Awakens as those heroes join the galactic legends in what turns out to be an EPIC adventure. Age-old mysteries of the Force and un-told/unfinished stories from the past are unlocked. The story unfolds from there…
If you are a “Die-Hard” Star Wars fan, you will love “Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Jedi”.
The movie is EPIC in its delivery and covers a lot of ground. There is plenty of thrilling action, super-cool special effects and breath-taking cinematography.
There are a lot of twists and turns which helps to keep a long-running (2:32) movie interesting.
A bit more of the “Dark-side” surfaces in this installment. This is the middle installment of a Trilogy. The door is open and set for the third installment. Mark Hamill does an excellent job paving the way for the new younger “Skywalkers” to come.
This is a 4 1/2 Star Movie!
“Queen of Katwe” is based on the true story about a young girl, Phiona Mutesi (Madina Nalwanga) from Uganda who sold corn on the village streets to help her family survive. She stumbles upon a group of kids in her village who are learning to play chess.
Soon Phiona learns the strategy of the game and wants to play every day. Phiona not only learns to play chess, but she excels at it, beating her opponents at every local meet. With her determination, the support of her family and community, Phiona realizes her dream to become an International Chess Champion. The story unfolds from there…
“Queen of Katwe” is an excellent movie. It’s executed brilliantly. There is a message for everyone, young or old. “You can realize your dreams with hard work and determination.”
The entire cast was great! Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo were awesome and new comer Madina Nalwanga shines brightly.
“Queen of Katwe” is a feel-good movie and definitely worth a look.
This is a 5 Star Movie!
