Star Wars - The Last Jedi

Soooo, we go see the new Star War movie the last Jedi. This 2 1/2 hour movie was the next edition of the Star War series.  Alicia and I saw the mixed reviews  (86% critics / 56% people review) and figured the people missed the true premise of the movie and the critics were right.  So we find out, one of them was absolutely correct

Luke Skywalker's peaceful and solitary existence gets upended when he encounters Rey, a young woman who shows strong signs of the Force. Her desire to learn the ways of the Jedi forces Luke to make a decision that changes their lives forever. Meanwhile, Kylo Ren and General Hux lead the First Order in an all-out assault against Leia and the Resistance for supremacy of the galaxy

Mudbound (Netflix)

Alicia and I were moved to see this film on Netflix by the reviews and the Golden Globe nomination of Mary J. Blige.  An interesting movie we initially thought was a typical southern white family story aligned beside a southern black family in the 1940's. But this movie showed an amazing directorial process and interpretation of the book "Mudbound" by Hillary Jordan by Dee Rees.   

Laura McAllan is trying to raise her children on her husband's Mississippi Delta farm, a place she finds foreign and frightening. In the midst of the family's struggles, two young men return from the war to work the land. Jamie McAllan, Laura's brother-in-law, is everything her husband is not - charming and handsome, but he is haunted by his memories of combat. Ronsel Jackson, eldest son of the black sharecroppers who live on the McAllan farm, now battles the prejudice in the Jim Crow South

Wind River movie review

Alicia and I sit down to watch this independent release film about a rape murder on an Indian reservation. This slow moving crime drama suspense is worth the watch with good actor. Absolutely good writing and a decent directing job. This wasnt on our list but based on the critics comments and the directors track record of good directing and writing. I wanted us to see this unorthodox movie.

Cory Lambert is a wildlife officer who finds the body of an 18-year-old woman on an American Indian reservation in snowy Wyoming. When the autopsy reveals that she was raped, FBI agent Jane Banner arrives to investigate. Teaming up with Lambert as a guide, the duo soon find that their lives are in danger while trying to solve the mystery of the teen's death
