Smurfs: The Lost Village
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A bland, semi-funny re-imagining of the 80's cartoon. Predictable, pedantic, and missing anything to allow adults to enjoy it. State of the art animation, is about all I can say. (yeah really not much of a review, because it wasn't much of a movie)

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Wonderful romp. More special effects than plot, but the characters are fleshed out in such a way to make it totally worth the watch. Awkward main characters are tough to write and direct and to make them worth watching without making them comical. This movie managed to do this well. It is a good addition to the Potter world, and I hope they explore this time period, and the other schools of magic

Hidden Figures
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

What can I say about this movie that has not already been said. It is great, it is uplifting. It makes clear the mistakes of our past and today. It shows that any human being can be extraordinary, and we are fools not to see it. We need to look past color, gender, or any other label, and see the mind and heart beneath. When we do this, we can literally reach the moon.

The Lego Batman Movie

So this was more than a little predictable but the homage to all the other Batman shows, and I mean ALL the others, is well worth the viewing. If you are a fan in any way of Batman, this is a version unlike any you have seen. It is funny, sarcastic, reverent, irreverent and above all fun to watch. It is fast paced good for kids, and leaves you with a pretty good message.

Logan
Logan (2017)

What an excellent telling of a story that is an alternative future for the current wolverine (who is actually currently dead). This isn't a super hero show, and that is fine. The characters have powers yes, but that is treated as an appropriate plot device. There is a lot of story to tell with layered compelling characters that are struggling to go from point A to point B, and hoping to survive the trip.

Well told, well executed, story. Painful ending as most final chapters can
be, and very worth watching.
