An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power

on 8-04-2017

A friend asked me if I thought he would be depressed after seeing this movie. In a round about way I suggested that he would be well informed. There are real weather events affecting us all that are a direct result of our changing climate. They are pointed to in this movie: Miami is flooding at high tide. Storms are more intense that ever recorded. The warmed ocean temperatures are causing more moisture to...

Get Me Roger Stone

No matter your political persuasion, please see this movie. You will begin to understand how you are being played. And played not just by your candidates but by the scum-baggery behind the candidate(s). What an eye opener. It is on the trail of political dirty tricks from Nixon to Trump. It shows how the Republicans have embraced dirty trickery. It shows you how and from whom these diabolical statements and strategies have come. It...

It features, a Snow Leopard family, a Panda and her cub, A Monkey tribe and a goat like creature I lost the actual name of. The cinematographers follow their lives through the four seasons in a year. Hats off to the intrepid filming crews. They stayed steady at their posts...

Tommy’s Honor

on 4-22-2017

Another golf story that has very little to do with golf…really. It is a love and relationship movie about family and marriage. Throw some family legacy in for spice. It is slow paced and very well acted. The scenes take us back to Scotland and a more simple time. The historical development of the game of golf seems to be a sub plot or even the reason for the movie. It is about youth...

Tomorrow

on 3-12-2017

Friends insisted I see this documentary. I too suggest you see this. It is a hopeful view into several lives and projects around our wonderful planet geared to sustainability. It is very well done and takes the needed time to explain how we got here ( in an environmental shift ) and a path to a sustainable future. It talks about the Iceland bank failure that started a ripple of financial stress around the...

Hidden Figures

on 1-11-2017

Wow and Wow again! This movie is about letting competence rise up thru the color barrier to ascend to excellence. The movie is expertly acted. It offers a slice of life in the early days of the space race that few of us have known anything about. The colored folks were held down yet allowed to work at NASA. It was a segregated work place. Yet, when a job needed doing, talent is all...

Jackie

on 1-01-2017

Natalie Portman becomes Jackie Kennedy. She captures her mannerisms and stylistically replicates the Jackie we knew. The behind the scenes jackie she portrays is a scattered frail being who leans on alcohol and drugs to get her through. The acting was superb. I was transported to that time in all aspects. It is a historical time capsule of a movie. I highly recommend it. EXPEKT-O-METER Before 7.5 – After 8.5 > > >...

VAXXED

on 8-28-2016

This is an expose of how some clever and greedy companies are making tens of billion dollars a year dispensing toxic products. These same companies have manipulated the system through lobbying to have government policies dictate the lawful delivery of untested toxins to our children. The government watch dog agency CDC is at the center of the deceit. If these policies are allowed to exist, by the year 2032, one out of two newborns...

Bridge Of Spies

on 10-20-2015

This movie is seamless, meaning, I was completely involved in it from beginning to end. It is a fascinating story about a little known part of American and USSR history. We all knew about Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 pilot, being shot down over Russia but were shielded from the behind the scenes story that got him released from the Soviets. This is that story, expertly told and acted. Tom Hanks has the lead...
