Jackie

“Jackie” is an intimate look at the events before, during and after one of the most tragic moments to happen in American History.

Mrs. Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman) suffered greatly after the loss of her husband and President of the United States but never showed any anguish while in public. “Jackie” gives you a more behind the scenes look at some of the events, conversations and controversy that took place after John F.

This is a 4 Star Movie!

Thor: The Dark World An IMAX 3D Experience

It’s very difficult to duplicate the success of a first installment. “Thor: The Dark World” the sequel to the 2011 blockbuster picks up nicely from where the first installment ended.

The adventures of Thor the Mighty Avenger continues as he battles to save Earth and the Nine Realms from the dark enemy that came before the universe.
The evil Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Odin and Asgard are no match against this evil enemy they face. Thor embarks on his own perilous journey, one that re-unites him with Jane Foster (Portman) and they together try to save the Universe. The story unfolds from there…

A must see in IMAX, although 3D is not necessary. The cinematography, special effects and action are very good. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) continues to weld his hammer to the delight of female audiences. The movie has a small lull, but other than that it’s pretty good at holding your attention.

If you are interested in the Thor franchise then “Thor: The Dark World” is a must see.
