Hello happy movie fans! So we are kicking off my third movie corner and these last couple weeks I didn’t see as many as I had hopped but some that I wanted to see ended up leaving before I got there so that kind of put me off. That and it rained a lot and I just didn’t want to get dressed let alone leave the house lol but that said here is what I did see:
Black Panther: 5 Stars
So I have been a huge fan of all the Marvel movies and I was super excited for this one. I go into each one with no comic info and only going based off movies and the fun I have had in them. That said I loved his inclusion in Civil War and I wanted to know more about him. Clearly he is an awesome fighter and has a super cool suit but he is more than most of our other heroes as he is also a king. That to me was super cool. So we see the epic settings full of this amazing world that is made up but pulls from other cultures to really make it something much different than we have seen in the other Marvel movies. It has incredible visuals, story, and acting. It has it all. I was so entranced with the story it flew by and I wish I could have had more. The special effects were on point as always. I mean some of the tech…it made me want it so bad! I loved the dynamics of all the different characters and how things played into one another. That is really all I can say because if you don’t know what Black Panther is about yet you much be living under a rock! Go see it! And wait until the very very end of the credits it’s Marvel there is normally a mid credits scene and an after credits scene…don’t miss out!
Every Day: 5 Stars
So I read this book some time back and the sequel/companion and reviewed them both: Every Day & Another Day. The movie does a great job of exploring the book and expressing things from the perspective of both “A” and Rhannon basically combining both books in a sense. We got to hit so many of the “days” and I really enjoyed the way each one was played out and described. It is such a weird concept but it really works and the movie was a beautiful way to express it. I think the whole cast did an amazing job of playing things out and I loved the updated feel of using Instagram vs. e-mail with “A” it has a much more visual aspect. I loved this movie and it really brought me up and I highly recommend it to both fans of the books or just anyone looking for a good and uplifting movie about accepting yourself and living for each day. One I need in my collection so I can watch again.
Game Night: 5 Stars
This is a movie I have been anticipating for a long time. One I love game nights and I would love to get a group together to do a monthly game night. Seriously I love when they happen and think they should happen more often. That said this movie delivers exactly what it says in the trailers. A murder mystery party gone wrong and hilarity that ensues! OMG This movie had me rolling with laughter through most of it and I can’t wait to see it again. I know my bestie was sad I saw it without her (to be fair it was looking like possibly a couple weeks before she was free without the kids and I’m not that patient lol) but I will totally go see it again with her! I will for sure be getting this one when it comes out! I don’t want to say more because it is full of action and mysteries and worth figuring out the first time free and clear.
Three movies and all huge hits for me! Not a bad couple weeks. I am still sad I missed out on seeing The Shape of Water, because it looked really different just not sure I want to buy it on DVD so I’ll have to wait for HBO or something I guess for that one. What movies have you seen recently? What should I see? This weekend I plan on seeing Red Sparrow and Death Wish.
