Parkland (2013)

I’ve always admired the history of the United States. If I had to pick an area that most fascinated me, it would be the Presidency. John F. Kennedy became the 35th President of the United States in January 1960. When asked who my favourite historical person was, I always say it was Kennedy. Just because … More Parkland (2013)

The Patriot (2000)

Mel Gibson will be remembered for many things he did on the big screen or behind the camera. Known for roles in Lethal Weapon and Braveheart and the director of The Passion of the Christ. One of the roles I’ll always fondly remember him as Benjamin Martin, one of the bravest fictional characters to fight … More The Patriot (2000)

The Red Tent (2014)

We don’t usually review TV shows or mini-series here, but had to bend the rules for our favourite actress, Rebecca Ferguson. Before Mrs. Ferguson became Ilsa in Mission Impossible or Jenny Lind in The Greatest Showman, she was Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob, born in The Red Tent. She broke my heart in this … More The Red Tent (2014)

Midway (2019)

We all know by now that one of my least favourite film genres is war. Well, right behind westerns, I can’t bring myself to like those. I enjoy war movies, and even though my major in college focused a lot on history, I barely remember anything about the world wars. Midway was a pretty good … More Midway (2019)

Dark Waters (2019)

Dark Waters is a brilliant film. In my heart and mind, this film deserves to win an award but probably won’t get one. Mark Ruffalo gives a passionate performance as a chemical company lawyer who turns the tables on his employer. His emotions and actions were on the same level or even better than his … More Dark Waters (2019)

Chappaquiddick (2017)

I missed Chappaquiddick on its original short-lived run at the theatre. However, it is on Netflix, and I finally watched it. To say I was blown away by the performances of everyone, including Jason Clarke as Senator Ted Kennedy, would be an understatement. This movie was pure gold. The events of 1969 shocked the Nation … More Chappaquiddick (2017)
