Released 06/28/2019                              Rated: PG-13

I actually didn’t grow up listening to The Beatles. I heard a few of their hits that came on the radio; I can’t say I distinctly knew they were by The Beatles, but I know them. My husband is a fan, so I have been somewhat educated since then. Anyway, this movie caught our interest. Continue reading

Then vs Now: The Lion King

Released 06/24/1994                              Rated: G

If I had to pick one Disney movie that everybody has without a doubt seen, it’d probably be The Lion King. It’s a coming of age story that doesn’t shy away from the notion of bad things that happen and how we deal with them. What surprised me was the fact that this movie was considered the “B” project while in production. They had no idea it was going to do as well as it did. Continue reading

Released 07/12/2019                              Rated: R

I found the trailer on YouTube a few months back. I started it up going “what in the world is this??” As I watched it I pegged it as terrible; a creature-feature. Typical man vs nature. But halfway through it I thought: I still want to see this. Like, I really wanted to see it. Continue reading

A Simple Favor

Released 09/14/2018                              Rated: R

I was intrigued by the trailer but missed my chance to see it when it hit theaters. Luckily I was able to rent it from the library. After having sat on it for about a week or so, I think I really liked this one. I didn’t really have much to say about it at first, but after having read the book as well, it makes me like the movie that much more. Continue reading

The Dead Don’t Die

Released 06/14/2019                              Rated: R

I liked this movie more than I thought I was going to. The premise and the list of names attached peaked my interest, but the trailer didn’t so much. So I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It’s not perfect, it’s got it’s share of issues, but I still recommend seeing it at some point. Continue reading

Then vs. Now: Aladdin

Released 11/25/1992                              Rated: G

This movie is perfect. Everything from the casting, to the animation, to the way the characters play off each other, to the story, to Genie’s pop culture-reference infused antics, to the songs; ALL OF IT! I’ve actually had a difficult time coming up with something to say about this movie. Continue reading

One for the Money

Released 01/27/2012                              Rated: PG-13

I just started reading this series. The characters stand out to me more so than the mysteries do, but I’m liking it. I remember the poster for this movie, but I apparently don’t remember the trailer because I thought it looked more like a comedy. To be clear, it is a comedy, I just feel like the preview was funnier. Continue reading
