The Fate of The Furious

on 4-22-2017

The story falls apart in at least 5 places. It does, however point to an eventual possibility that autonomous cars could be hacked and used n ways not intended by their creators. They might be a future ISIS or Russian threat or just another movie sub plot. Some of the acting was good in a testosteronish sort of way. It was fun to see Charles Theron as the villainess. Even though I never did...

ROGUE ONE

Yes, Star Wars lives on and on… This particular installment is very well done. The acting is top tier. I liked these characters and was engaged by them and their mission.

It took me to new places cinematically...

In The Heart Of The Sea

on 12-20-2015

This is a powerful tail of men challenging the sea and one very big whale. It is directed by Opey (Ron Howard) and has his traditional statement of quality story telling. The scenes and sets were meticulously constructed to take us back in time to an era where life was quite tough and the men who put to sea were a breed apart. It is a well told story that is well worth your...
