It’s been a long time since I wrote a blog, because ya know, life and stuff. But it’s the holiday season which means it’s my favorite season: MOVIE SEASON!!! Of course it’s always movie season for me, but right now the movie industry is throwing allll of the movies at us and I couldn’t be happier. So anyways, here are my thoughts on all the movies I’ve watched over the past few weeks:
I’m sure by now we are all well aware of how much I love Chris Evans, and this could very quickly turn into a blog about Chris Evans and his sweaters (swoooon). So before I get too distracted, I’ll focus on the movie. It’s delightful. Literally all of it. How do you make a murder mystery so fun and charming?? I don’t know, but they did it!! Highly recommend.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
“It’s important that you don’t think of him as a saint. Because if you do, then his message is unattainable. It’s something you can’t even aspire to.”Joanne Rogers
You guys, we don’t deserve Tom Hanks, and we certainly did not deserve Mr. Rogers..but like the grace of God, we get them both!! We’re pretty lucky. This movie is probably the most heartwarming thing we’ll see all year. It’s inspiring, beautiful, and it made me want to be a better Christian.
I love Shia Labeouf. Always have, always will. This movie is a masterpiece. Shia wrote it about his life and played his abusive father. I’ve talked about it with several people, it’s clear no one knew what his home life was like. I’m so glad he was able to honestly tell his story in a way that I hope helps him. I also hope he gets an Oscar nom.
For those of you who don’t know what this movie is about, but love Mark Ruffalo (me), this movie is about Dupont poisoning people in West Virginia for decades…which I had no clue happened. It features real people from West Virginia, which is pretty cool. The movie gave me more trust issues than I already had…except while I can choose to not date anyone, I can’t choose to not drink water or stop using nonstick pans. But no matter what, Mark Ruffalo did a great job and these stories need to be told! Go see it!
Yet another historical event that I didn’t know happened. This movie features more people I love: Nick Jonas, Woody Harrelson, Mandy Moore, Dennis Quaid, Luke Evans, Aaron Eckhart – it feels like a fun history class!! Nick Jonas’ character inspired me, but I’ll never be half as brave as the men in that movie.
The beautiful animation, Olaf’s song, Anna and Elsa wearing leggings, Sterling K. Brown, Kristoff saying “my love is not fragile” …it was amazing. I laughed, I cried. I don’t feel like this is one I need to advertise.
I saw this movie solely for Chadwick Boseman. And I spent the entire 2 hours whispering “please don’t hurt Chadwick, please don’t hurt Chadwick, please don’t hurt Chadwick” I left the theater feeling yucky about human beings, so it’s not necessarily a recommendation, but Chadwick Boseman was great!!!!
That’s it so far. Here are some movies I’m PSYCHED about:
- Little Women
- Richard Jewell
- Just Mercy
