    We just saw "Chappaquiddick." Seems pretty true-to-life to me, and not as sensationalized as it could have been.

    Saava goes on a great journey to free his people from vicious hyenas. Along the way he befriends many creatures, including Angee the wolf, and together these companions try to find the magician's mountain.
    Initial release: November 12, 2015 (Russia)

    Director: Maxim Fadeev
    Featured song: I Believe
    Music composed by: Maxim Fadeev
    Screenplay: Maxim Fadeev, Aleksandr Chistyakov, Gregory Poirier
    I just watched this on Netflix and it was named Hero Quest.

    This movie is a mess. It has story elements from various cultures and at times is a cross between Southeast Asian, the animated version of Jungle Book think King Louie with a bit of Indian multiheaded gods, and Russian folklore. Characters appear in the storyline and you think why are they there how were they introduced? Maybe in Russian the story, the characters make total sense. However, production crew hired a really bad translator for the script cause in English this story is all over the place.

    Fanny - We loved Wonder! Just a sweet little film.

    On the opposite spectrum - We watched Atomic Blonde this weekend. I had been wanting to see it for a variety of reasons and I was not disappointed. I liked that it wasnt' "pretty" or "perfect" - the action and fight scenes were reminiscent of the type of action movies from the 80s before everything got so sanitized/CGI'd/glossed up. The plot kept me interested up to the very end. Also, I would like the entirety of Charlize's wardrobe for myself please and thank you. The film is a plethora of great coats and shoes/boots.
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly...usually on a broomstick.
    We are flexible like that.

    Knowing you were a Bostonian, I didn't want to say anything that might offend you. But you are absolutely right about TK. I loved how the movie brought out his lack of caring about anything but his own reputation, so he wore that collar to the funeral so people would think he got hurt. I thought way back then (yes, I remember it) that he was faking for sympathy.

    One thing I really appreciated in that movie was the way they touched on the impact that being the youngest brother following behind 3 amazing men in Joe, John, and Bobby as being a reality of his life ... but also didn't allow that to be an excuse for anything he did. I'd love to see someone pick up where the movie left off in a book or another movie to explore how much of his character remained with what we saw in this movie, or whether or not he ever truly repented / changed later in his life.

    I think things would have gone VERY VERY different for TK had we had social media back when he drove off that Bridge.

    I mean he leaves her under water and calls NO ONE. Goes back to his hotel and showers and goes to bed. Starts crap that SHE was driving. His father tells him to get an ALIBI

    Then the damn NECK BRACE as he says he wants sympathy. Spends the funeral twisting and turning his neck looking to see who was there. What was it 'The Washington Post' caught that.

    The Moon Landing helped keep this story mostly on like page 3. Today it would have been on PAGE ONE until he was in JAIL for MURDER. Telling her parents to bury her quickly.

    I mean the disgusting behavior was rampant through the ENTIRE movie. Gawd. Despicable.

    Again having Social Media in that time would NEVER have allowed TK to go on and have a successful career.

    Favorite part was when his wife Joan told him to go 'f' himself.

    TK was a complete DIRT BAG.

    Yes, I loved JFK. But this Kennedy.......nope.

    Hurricane Heist - it won't win any awards, but it was a fun action film. I liked the opening sequence...
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Juan of the Dead. A zombie apocalypse on the island of Cuba. The movie was a collaboration between Cuba and Spain. A group of friends with not much to do open a business to kill zombies but things get out of hand.

    It was meant to be funny but it wasn't that funny. Pales in comparison to Shaun of the Dead which I think it was trying to be like.
