The Handmaid’s Tale Review

This episode Alicia and I jumps on the Hulu bandwagon and watches the new series "The Handmaid's Tale" based on the book by Margaret Atwood (a Canadian author).  A crazy alternative society that enslaves women and have a certain set of women used to bear children for the rich oligarchy.  We wanted to see this series because of the strangely relevant way we see this can happen due to the disrespect women are receiving from men in power.  Whether its the business sector or the government.

Today Alicia and I went to see the theatrical release of the Stephen Kings novel It.  We also went back and watched part one of the 1990 mini series.  Very interesting differences between the two movies as well as sticking to the same story line but in a modern way with updated special effects and a more sinister crazy ass clown

Atomic Blonde

Sensual and savage, Lorraine Broughton is the most elite spy in MI6, an agent who's willing to use all of her lethal skills to stay alive during an impossible mission. With the Berlin Wall about to fall, she travels into the heart of the city to retrieve a priceless dossier and take down a ruthless espionage ring.

Alicia and I went to this movie ready for some kick ass spy stuff and really trying see what this movie was all about.  We saw some pretty good major actors in this movie along with Charlize Theron that help her along her trip to find the proverbial spy list with all the agents in the whole wide world.

Dunkirk Movie Review

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

If you don't know Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite directors.  His vision and story tellingability has fascinated me since "memento".  But proceeded from there with the Batman trilogy, inception", Intersteller, the Prestige and Insomnia the sleeper of the group.  I'm not a big fan of war movies but this was something I knew I would enjoy since Nolan had his hands on it.  He wrote the script as well.

In 1951, cancerous cells from Henrietta Lacks lead to breakthroughs that change the face of medicine forever. Aided by writer Rebecca Skloot, Deborah Lacks embarks on a quest to learn about the mother she never knew.

Alicia and I reviewed this HBO movie produced by Oprah Winfrey because we read the book     The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks a few years ago and really felt that this was an important message about a remarkable African American woman that effected science forever. So we wanted to see if the movie would give the family and book justice.

For an out of the ordinary review, We decided on a new TV series on Starz to review.  The critically acclaimed novel "American Gods" created by Neil Gaiman comes to TV.  I mentioned this series to Alicia early last year because we both are big fans of Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies).  And this show has all the creative flair of the two of them in such different ways.  Check it out, it is partially complex but both horror and entertaining at the same time.   Here's the series summary.  Enjoy!!
