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 War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.

Alicia and I were excited to see the new movie from the new Planet of the ape series that are very very good.  Its the prequel before the classic 1968 Planet of the apes movie with Charlton Heston.  The emotional, exciting and very humanistic view of the movie is what keeps you engaged throughout this new edition of the series.  It also fills in some gaps of the 1968 version.  Worth seeing but here is our take.

“Get out” Review

Oooooo.....K.  This movie has been talked about and admired by almost every critic out there because of its outrageous turn of horror as it pertains to racism.  Jordan Peele turns the blind eye of liberals not address ing their own racist thoughts and desires into a black mans nightmare.  Satirical in many ways but revealing the underlined comments of white liberals that doesn't compare to the old time southern racism we are use to seeing on screen from the lets go back to the good ole days.  Here's our thoughts.

This podcast we discuss the hot topic of Chrisette Michele and her controversial singing at Trumps inauguration.  Well actually just one of the functions of the day of inauguration.  As twisted as it sounds, our thoughts are she could have spun the situation in her favor if she didn't sing but she didn't,  and even now after she did sing she could have done some things to help her appeal.  We debate the issue as well as bring humor to a sad situation.
