Since the summer recess started I’ve been watching a variety of movies. The Magnificent Seven, Passengers, Hidden Figures, The Book of Life, and The Grand Budapest Hotel are just a few. Not to mention the British and Australian series which I find highly entertaining: Rake, The Last Tango in Halifax and Happy Valley (this last one is still in process).
The action-packed remake of The Magnificent Seven is a must for those who love cowboy films. The casting is excellent and the one female role is a gutsy gal–not your typical damsel in distress. The gun-shooting scenes keep you on the edge of your seat! (PG13)
The story behind Passengers was something very unexpected. Can you imagine being stranded on a star ship? The film also gives you a whole new take on the future of space travel. What a ride! (PG13)
If ever there was a movie to inspire young women to study math and pursue a career in engineering, Hidden Figures is THE film to watch. Truly inspirational! Loved it! (PG)
Everyone must write his own story is the message of The Book of Life. It’s a beautiful film full of color and vibrant characters. Wonderful for the whole family! (PG)
An adult film abundant in dark humor, The Grand Budapest Hotel, takes you on a unique trip. It’s a period piece that includes a murder mystery (two of my favorite elements in a movie). (R)
Take your pick; there’s bound to be a film for you to watch in the comfort of your home. ~~LMMolina
