Ghostbusters
Ghostbusters (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The 2016 female led remake of Ghostbusters is better than its controversy would indicate; Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones have great chemistry on screen together and there are some very funny moments from them all. And Chis Hemsworth is hilarious as their dumb-as-paint himbo receptionist.

The Boss Baby
The Boss Baby (2017)

Tim Templeton (the voice of Miles Bakshi) was enjoying life as a vivid imaginative 7 year old boy with his two parents Ted (voiced by Jimmy Kimmel) and Janice (voiced by Lisa Kudrow), who give him as much love as a kid could possibly ask for. However, that is until he meets the most interesting suit wearing boss baby (voiced by Alec Baldwin and very much of his "30 Rock" character type) brother Tim ever saw in his life. After a while, he ends up Tim Templeton (the voice of Miles Bakshi) was enjoying life as a vivid imaginative 7 year old boy with his two parents Ted (voiced by Jimmy Kimmel) and Janice (voiced by Lisa Kudrow), who give him as much love as a kid could possibly ask for.

After a while, he ends up helping the boss baby go on a mission to end the war between babies and puppies. It's enjoyable enough with some funny lines and intertextual allusions for adult appreciation.

A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home, only to be adopted by a couple in Australia before setting out to find his lost family 25 years later. It is an epic story complemented by beautiful cinematography and stellar performances to make it an absorbing and moving experience.

Hidden Figures

"Hidden Figures" is a wonderful movie based on a true story of three African-American women who worked for NASA in its infancy and whose exceptional computer, engineering, and mathematical skills forced the space agency to change its policies. Taraji P. Henson played Katherine G. Johnson with a touch of the fierceness of her "Empire" Cookie and she is well-supported by Octavia Spencer portrays Dorothy Vaughan, an under paid over worked computer supervisor without the title and Janelle MonŠe was the plucky Mary Jackson who went on to become an engineer. Kevin Costner achors things too as the eventual ally of Katherine. To add suspense to historical events of which we already know the outcome is now easy feat, yet this is achieved in the sequences surrounding John Glenn's 1962 orbit of earth. Costuming is impressive too.

Why Him?
Why Him? (2016)
4 months ago via Flixster

For once, a film in which the funniest bits come as surprise cameos and scenarios not seen in its trailer. It's a simple premise for some pretty base humour. Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: crass Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). Megan Mullally is hilarious as always as Ned's wife Barb.
