Star Trek Beyond Movie Review

Star Trek Beyond Movie Review

Wow! It’s been a long time since I’ve written a movie review. But believe it or not, Star Trek Beyond is only the third movie I’ve seen in the movie theater this year. That’s not so usual for me. I haven’t quite come to terms with whether it’s worth it for me to write...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Movie Review

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Movie Review I finally got to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens on New Year’s Eve with my sister who is visiting. I promised that I would wait to see it with her because we saw Episodes 1, 2, and 3 together in the movie theater. It...
The Martian Movie 2015

The Martian Movie 2015

The first thing I have to say is “I thoroughly enjoyed the movie — and so did my husband.” I’ve been chomping at the bit to see The Martian in the movie theater and was so excited to find out that we’d be getting it on opening weekend. *girly squeal of delight*...
Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland

“There are two wolves who are always fighting. One is darkness and despair. The other is light and hope. The question is: which wolf wins?” Casey asks. This is probably the most profound piece of information that tells the audience what Tomorrowland is...
Gravity

Gravity

It seems like I’m catching up on all the movies that I missed over the last year and a half. I’ve been so busy moving to a new country and settling down that there hasn’t been enough time to quench my movie appetite; besides the face that where...
Cinderella

Cinderella

Disney’s 2015 live-action version of Cinderella was highly satisfactory for a children’s movie all about “having courage and kindness.” It maintained very close resemblance to Disney’s animated film, but showed more depth. We still have...
Birdman

Birdman

My first impression after sitting through Birdman directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and staring Michael Keaton as the star character Riggan Thomspon/Birdman was “what a strange movie.” My second impression was “I understand why the Academy Awards awarded this...
Noah

Noah

It only took me a little under a year to finally sit down and watch this movie. I had mixed feelings about watching it because I had heard so many terrible reviews for it. I got about twenty seconds into the opening scene and understood why so many people didn’t...
Interstellar

Interstellar

  Wow! What a great movie. 🙂 I loved it! For me, this movie was up there with movies like Inception and 2001 Space Odyssey. This is definitely one of those thinking movies about the ingenuity of humans and what we could be truly capable of. The visuals are...
Maleficent

Maleficent

“Hell has no fury like a woman scorned.” This statement is very poignant within the story of Maleficent. I used to always tease, “Once a woman goes to the dark side she’s never coming back.” But as I’ve grown older and wiser, I don’t think that’s true as this movie...
