Honestly, despite all the buzz I wasn’t really looking forward to this film because it was long and didn’t really seem that interesting, but I’m glad I went through with it as I ended up being really blown away.

Holy Crap! All of us are dying after watching this. I’m not sure I can handle all of my favorite characters in one movie. Tom Holland is adorable in this featurette.

Of all of this years Oscar nominated movies, this was one that I’ve really been looking forward to and it didn’t let me down. Hacksaw Ridge really is a story of two halves. The first half is kind of like a well-made Nicholas Sparks movie with a bit of ‘Private Benjamin’ thrown in for good luck. That might sound like an insult but it really isn’t meant to be. It does a great job of explaining Doss’s situation and his beliefs, so that by the time the second half of the movie starts you’re fully invested in his story, it’s believable and you’re with him. There are some strong dramatic moments and also a fair smattering of comedic moments and by the end of the first hour I had been pulled into quite a nice comfortable place.
Then they go to war.
The new trailer for Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast” debuted during ABC’s broadcast of “The Bachelor” featuring new footage and Ariana Grande and John Legend’s duet of the iconic song Beauty and the Beast. Directed by Bill Condon, the film brings the story and characters audiences know and love to life in a stunning, cinematic event. Be sure to check it out, and don’t forget to see “Beauty and the Beast” on March 17 when the film hits theaters nationwide.
You guys, I don’t know how to write a review for this movie, I really don’t. I can’t spoil anything about the plot, and I promise I won’t, but all the things I loved most, the things I really want to talk about, are all part of the things that need to surprise you when you see it. Which leaves me talking around the edges of everything I loved.
Plus it blew my mind, it really did.

Lion is the true story about a boy named Saroo who, when he’s five, falls asleep on a train and ends up lost. Thankfully he ends up getting adopted by an Australian family, but when he grows up he seeks to find out where he came from, and with the help of Google Earth (it’s like 2008 guys) he tries to find home again.

Hidden Figures, adapted from the non-fiction book by Margot Lee Shettery, follows three female African-American mathematicians who made several notable contributions to NASA, such as launching the first American astronaut (the late John Glenn) into orbit, while working as part of the Langley Research Center’s West Area Computing Unit division, and overcoming the racial and sexist attitudes of 1960’s Virginia when Jim Crow laws were in full effect and women weren’t getting their due.
