Mark Wahlberg and Kurt Russel in the movie about the oil platform disaster Deep Water Horizon. Shows events leading up to the incident, and places blame on BP. But, did not detail the recovery efforts to cap the well. Good movie but was hoping to see how they came up with the plan that eventually stopped the oil. From past posts online, heard it was a Master Plumber who came up with the solution! For more, see IMDB!

Michael Pena and Dax Shephard partner together in a remake of the 70's/80' TV show CHIPs! Cameo at the end with Eric Estrada is about the only link to the TV Show but that said, had some funny moments to keep your's truly entertained. But, do beware of the sexual comments and situations that may stimey a first date! Best to watch this one with your buddies, or at least later in the relationship! For more, see IMDB.

Sequel to the Kingsman brings back old and new characters from before. Of note, is the return of Colin Firth! Since the movie is just out, will keep the review brief... if you liked the first one, then you will this one! Glad to have seen it on opening weekend! For more see IMDB.

Checked out the movie based on the Vince Flynn books featuring Mitch Rapp - an American bent on killing terrorists as a result of his girlfriend being killed by them.
Read part of the book... still reading it; did see some differences in the book and movie but still liked the movie.
Ending hints at future movies to come! See more on IMDB.

Movie that brings Wonder Woman onto the big screen. Gal Gadot plays Diana - a goddess and the Wonder Woman, who fights Ares the God of War. Set in World War I, Diana comes to her calling after an American Spy crash lands into the sea.
Good movie with some interesting twists and turns. Do plan to see more of Wonder Woman in the DC Comics Movie Franchise. For more, see IMDB.

Another King Arthur movie... has Charlie Hunman as King Arthur and Jude Law as Vortigren - the bad Uncle. Good movie with a different spin on the story. Glad to have waited for the DVD instead of watching at the Movie Theater. But, was pleasantly surprised on this version of the King Arthur legend. See more on IMDB.

Movie version of the popular TV series Baywatch. Has Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the lead role Mitch and Zac Efron supporting as a failed two-time Gold Olympic Gold Medalist who is hired to be a lifeguard.
Not so great story line with cameos from the TV series characters. Better to have watched something else. See more on IMDB.

Movie about comedian Kumail Nanjiani and how he met his future wife. Cool movie with lots of funny parts and seriousness mixed in. Great performances by Kumail and his movie family and future movie in-law family. Do check it out; consider it a first date movie! See more on IMDB.

War movie of the pivotal retreat of the British Army in World War II. Has great action shots and scenes. Like the point of view from land, air, and sea... but had a hard time with the flashbacks to show the different points of view. Saw it at the theater, liked it but could also have waited for the DVD. For more, see IMDB.
