After seeing the 9/11 attacks on TV, Capt. Nelson wants to rescind his retirement paperwork and go to Afghanistan with his men.  Lt. Bowers says no but when Cheif Warrant Officer Spencer learns the papers have not been filed, he rips them up and Nelson’s men will be the first strike against the Taliban.  Once they arrive in the war zone, Col.Mulholland gives the team of 12 men the code name Task Force Dagger.  Dagger must meet with General Abdul Rashid Dostum of the Northan Alliance and join forces.  They will use his intel and Dagger’s training & air strikes to release the Taliban’s stronghold on the area.  They have a few problems.  First, winter is near and the weather will hinder the air strikes.  Second, there is a turf war between the different factions of the Northern Alliance.  And last, the terrain is better accessible by horseback.  With little horse riding experience and only 6 horses, the Dagger splits off into 2 teams.  Alpha Team will meet up with Dostum while Bravo Team will stay at the base and relay messages to HQ until they get more horses.  This is a bloody and complicated battle that will have a lasting impact on both sides.

Based on Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton, this movie gives you a small window into the first battle against the Taliban (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  It’s frustrating to see Task Force Dagger face language barriers and infighting within the Northern Alliance.  When Nelson learns that Dostum is in contact with the Taliban, he is in total shock.  They consistently have pissing matches over the walkie-talkies.  While this is the first blow of a major war, it left its mark on American and Taliban history.  This movie does not hold back on any battle scene.  You will see blood, guts, dismemberment, and the after-effects of a suicide bomber.  So if you suffer from PTSD or shell shock, this movie can be skipped.  On the other side, it does show that the Taliban’s beliefs are not widely held among the Afghan people but it is deadly forced upon them.  This is just one more war on their soil.  And that’s the truly sad part about this movie.  Also, there is no need to see it in IMAX.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

I told him I wanted back in and he said no – Nelson

You are cutting the head off your most venomous snake – Spencer

No, he is showing us off. He is saying here’s the Americans. They are with me – Diller

Those are killer’s eyes – Dostum

Bea believes that humans were latecomers to the forest and should allow the animals to roam freely in their gardens.  Her neighbor Mr. McGregor firmly disagrees.  So when Peter’s dad saw the fence going up, he went into Mr. McGregor’s yard and was killed and turned into a pie.  That harsh lesson taught Peter to be careful and devise plans before entering McGregor’s garden.  However, one day while chasing Peter, Mr. McGregor has a heart attack and dies.  The animals in the woods go wild and take over Mr. McGregor’s yard and home.  In London, Tom McGregor got bad news.  His great uncle died.  But Tom is more concerned about a promotion than an uncle never knew.  However, when he is turned down for a promotion he deserved due to nepotism.  He goes ballistic and loses his job.  His former boss tells him to go to his Uncle’s home (he just inherited) and relax.  Tom comes to the McGregor Manor to find it overrun with animals.  He wants to be rid of all of them.  His new neighbor Bea attempts to sway him to allow the animals to roam free.  He agrees in front of her but goes after Peter and his friends.  Meanwhile, when Peter sees that Bea is falling for Tom, he decides to put an end to Tom and his deceitful ways.

Based on Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, this is an imaginative and funny take on a classic children’s story (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  It quickly gets your attention with classic “Disney”-style singing birds who are consistently interrupted.  Providing a great running gag while allowing the film to separate themselves from other live action movies.  There are plenty of jokes for children and adults alike.  However, please be advised that the movie shows Daddy Rabbit getting caught and then a warm pie coming out of the oven.  If your children can handle this 5-second scene, then bring them.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Why don’t you pick on someone your own size – Peter Rabbit

I am selling the home and use the proceeds to build a toy store across from Harrods so they can watch their imminent demise – Tom

I’m in the mood for rabbit pie – Mr. McGregor

I thought I heard explosives – Bea

After meeting in a bar’s quiz competition, team captains Annie and Max fall in love and get married.  Annie is ready to start a family but learns that Max will have a hard time conceiving.  She knows that Max is competitive and his brother Brooks’s success, good looks, and overall dominance must be messing with his mojo.  And with Brooks coming into town, Annie worries Max’s issues will only get worse.  Annie and Max host a weekly game night with their friends Kevin, Michelle, and Ryan.  Kevin and Michelle, now married, have been dating since high school.  And Ryan brings a new girl each week.  After Brooks embarrasses Max again during the game night, he offers to host one of his own.  Max and Annie decide to go just to destroy Brooks at his own game and get his mojo back.  Brooks decides to bring game night up a notch by hiring actors to kidnap him and leave clues for them to find him.  The first one to find him will win his car, a Porshe Spyder (Max’s dream car).  An FBI detective comes in and gives them dossiers with their first clues, then 2 men come in, beat up Brooks, and take him.  The 3 couples continue eating and reading their clues.  But they don’t know that the FBI agent was fake, but the kidnappers are real.  In the end, bullets will fly, blood will be everywhere, and the truth will come out.

How can you not laugh?  This movie was funny from beginning to end.  With a creepy neighbor, Denzel Washington, and a bloody dog, it has everything.  It will keep you wondering what is real and what is fake.  The writers that brought you Horrible Bosses, wins with this funny take on Game Night (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  You will laugh so hard, you will miss other jokes.  So don’t be surprised if you want to watch this movie again.  Game Night has no lulls, it gets going from beginning to end.  And what makes it funnier is the couples say what others only think.  See this one with friends and have a good laugh.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

How can that be profitable for FritoLay? – Gary

That’s some Django Unchained s*** – Kevin

Thank you, God. – Michelle

I’ve seen it. It’s nice – Max

Anastasia is trying to settle into her life as Mrs. Grey. As she learns about managing a home from Gail, understanding the vastness of her husband’s amassed fortune, and claim her identity at SIP, her head is spinning. She is put at ease with Christian’s expertise in BDSM.  When her past with he ex-boss Jack Hyde comes back into her life, she and Christian are in a state of constant fear.  Christian’s fears hold greater depth than Ana because he is lying to her about the extent of Jack’s depravity. He hopes to keep her safe from Jack’s accusations and violence. However, when this franchise come to its final climax, Jack won’t be the only intruder in the Grey’s life.

Based on Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James, this movie is the final installment of the successful franchise (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  While it does fall in line with the book, some parts are taken out for the sake of running time.  But rest assured the overall story is still there including the most memorable parts of the book.  With a short running time, it does feel a bit rushed.  One moment they are newlyweds and 30 minutes later, Christian comes home drunk after hearing Ana’s big news.  Fans of the book will not be disappointed, it is the best of the 3.  Also, it’s a great commercial ad for Audi.  And stay past the 1st set of end credits.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars

Umm, purple – Ana

We’ve never heard him sing before – Mia

We’ve heard enough bro – Elliot

Plans. Big plans. And Elliot loves looking at her big plans – Kate

Quiet Ana. You don’t want to wake up the whole house – Christian

Jake has nightmares every night. They involve a man in black torturing children to destroy a tower. When Jake wakes up, he draws his dreams. His family, friends, and teachers all believe his grief from losing his father is causing his nightmares. Although, Jake swears the dreams are real. After one more altercation, Jake’s school suggest he goes to a clinic. His stepfather says yes and his mother reluctantly agrees.  That night he has a dream about a gunslinger named Roland and his father battling the man in black.  The father succumbs to the suggestions of the man in black and Roland is heartbroken.  Then, the Roland heads to a house.  The next day, Jake looks for more information about the house in his dreams but is interrupted when Julie and a helper comes to take Jake to the clinic.  But Jake knows something is off with his escorts.  They have the same twitches and scars Jake has seen in his dreams.  In a split second decision, Jake runs away to the home in his dream.  He goes through a secret portal and ends up in Mid-World, the home of the Roland and Walter, the man in black.  Soon, Roland and Jake cross paths.  That’s when Jake learns that his dreams are real.  Walter is using children to power a device to destroy the dark tower.  This tower protects all the worlds in the universe from evil.  If the tower falls, every world would have an apocalypse.  Roland believes that Jake’s dreams are really visions; they hold to key to where Walter is hiding.  Roland is ready to seek vengeance for his father’s death.  However, this vengeance could do more harm than good.   Roland and Jake must come together to end Walter, the man in black.

Based on The Dark Tower by Stephen King, this is a fun movie for the family (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  But be forewarned, all the previews are not all appropriate.  Once this story gets going, there is no lag.  It keeps a compelling storyline for the imagination to soar.  While Dolby is not necessary, the imagery and set designs deserve to be seen on the big screen.  Now some moments are obviously CGI, but most blend in seamlessly.  So for a sci-fi fantasy, this is the one to see.  And a part 2 will come.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars

Been there. Now burn – Walter

What if the tower was destroyed – Dr. Hotchkiss

It can’t be just about that – Jake

He is just a healthy growing boy – Julie

That’s the man in Jake’s drawings – Laurie

Concentrate. Share your visions with me – Arra

You have forgotten the face of your father – Roland

After working the morning shift at her waitress job, Karla finally can step away to take her son Frankie to the park. He carries a recording device that he likes to playback and loves to hide. She plays Marco Polo with him often to find him in a crowd of children. While listening to music, she gets a call from her divorce attorney. He tells Karla that her ex-husband wants primary custody. Just as she is about to give the lawyer a piece of her mind, her phone disconnects. She goes back to Frankie and can’t find him. She calls out Marco but gets nothing back. Then she starts to panic. And for a brief second, she sees a woman pulling him into the back seat of the car. She runs to the car and holds on for dear life until she is forced off, which causes her to drop her phone. She jumps into her car as starts to chase them into busy traffic. She notices Frankie’s recorder is still on and plays it back.  She hears the kidnapping taking place.  The kidnappers run into cars, threatens Frankie’s life with a knife, and run over a police officer to make her stop.    Then, they pull over. She offers all her money in exchange for her son. The woman kidnapper Margo goes up to the passenger side window. She tells Karla if she lets her in her car and drives her to get $10,000, Frankie will be released. Begrudgingly Karla lets her in. Once in a tunnel, all hell breaks loose in the car. With police chasing the wrong car, her son at risk, and a gas tank close to empty, Karla will not stop for anything or anyone until her son is safe.

Go, Karla! Go! This is one to see. This movie will make you cringe (in a good way), make you cheer, yell at the screen, and laugh inappropriately. It is not a Lifetime movie, it is an action-packed thriller of a mother’s determination and quick thinking. You don’t say “why would you do that”. Because she doesn’t. You don’t say “why don’t you do this”. Because she does. She doesn’t make stupid mistakes. She just keeps running into WTF moments. Also, this movie starts with baby and childhood home movies of the child so you fall in love with him and become invested in his safety. This is one to see.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

It’s what he wants. It’s what he wants me to do – Margo

You should have stop coming – Terrance

I promise I’m gonna come back. I’m gonna be right back – Karla

Mom! – Frankie

It’s Gene Meh’s first day on the phone.  He will have his own cube and be scanned for the first time if his user Alex selects his emoji.  Gene is so excited.  There is just one problem, he expresses his excitement.  His parents, Mel and Mary Meh, are concerned that their son is not ready.  If he makes the wrong face, it could ruin his career on the phone.  Gene assures his parents he can do it.  He promises he will only be a Meh in Textopolis.  He relaxes into his cube and waits to be used by Alex.  Then he gets selected.  Gene freaks out and makes the wrong face, which displays on the screen.  Smiler, the first emoji ever and the supervisor, calls a board meeting to discuss his future.  She determines that he is a malfunction and should be erased.  Gene runs and she sends anti-virus robots after him.  While escaping, Gene runs into Hi-5 who helps him hide in the Loser Lounge.  The Loser Lounge is for apps that never get used.  Hi-5 tells Gene that he knows a hacker named Jailbreak who can help reprogram him.  It will allow him to only have one emotion, Meh.  At first, she wants nothing to do with Hi-5 or Gene until she sees what Gene can do.   She thinks Gene’s ability to change emotions will allow her to go get through the facial recognition software on Alex’s firewall.  If she can get through the firewall, she can get to the cloud and be free of the phone.  She promises to fix Gene’s emotions if he gets her to the cloud.   But the more they do, the more Alex’s phone malfunction.  He decides to go to the store and have it erased, ending Textopolis and all the emojis forever.

Well, it’s cute.  With the use of well-known apps like YouTube, Dropbox, Twitter, Instagram, Candy Crush, Spotify, Just Dance, and Snapchat, this movie touches the vein of teens existence today (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  They even make the connection between Hyroglyphics using pictures as words and Emojis.    It uses computer terms like firewall, hacker, program, trojan horse, and spam to attract the computer crowd.  But all the jokes fall flat.  This movie is bordering on nostalgic more than funny.  It even jokes that emoticons are the elderly.  But this movie is just cute.  Cute enough to wait for TV.  This is not worth Netflix. The short Hotel Transylvania film “Puppy” was funnier than the movie (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).

I give it 1 out of 5 stars

What’s the point of being #1, if there are no other numbers – Gene

There’s nothing like being scanned for the first time – Smiler

I am a malfunction – Mel

I seriously and unsarcastically want you to go away – Jailbreak

I am addict to sugar – Hi-5

Sitting on a porch in Virginia, Mildred “String Bean” Jeter tells her boyfriend, Richard “Rich” Loving, she is pregnant. Absolutely elated by the news, Richard decides to marry Mildred, buy an acre of land, and build a house for them. Knowing it was illegal for them to get married in Virginia, they went to Washington, DC and came back to Virginia. They hung their marriage license over their bed. One night, based on an anonymous tip, the Sheriff came to their home hoping to catch them having sex, they found them sleeping. They were both put in jail. Rich stayed overnight and given bail, but Mildred was kept for days until the judge could hear her case. Also, Rich was not allowed to bail her out. Rich obtained a lawyer who told them to plead guilty, so they could avoid prison. With the plea, they got a 1 year suspended sentence and could not return to VA together for 25 years. They moved to DC, but it as a far cry from the country life they knew. Once Mildred was ready to give birth, she decided she wanted Rich’s mom to be the midwife. So in the dark of night, they traveled back to VA. After they baby, Sidney, was born, the Sheriff showed up on their doorstep to arrest them. With legal interference they were able to avoid jail, but told to leave VA again. Richard can see that Mildred is deeply sadden by city life and misses her family. But when an accident strikes, moving back to VA is the only option. Their choice will affect the entire United States.

This wonderful story is told with the quiet of the country in contrast to the busyness of the city. The Lovings didn’t set out to be a trial blazing couple, they just wanted to raise their children in VA without going to prison. Even though they had to fight the state, their friends and family were on their side. The world was not out to stop them, most were for their marriage. The two actors easily displayed the soft spoken nature of Mildred and Richard. They just loved each other and lived up to their surname. Remember, you may lose the small battles but you can win the big war. This true romance story is a great date movie. See it today and bring a tissue.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

This won’t happen a second time – Frank

All this talk about civil rights, you need to get your civil rights – Mrs. Laurie

Annually, in Bergentown, the Bergens get together to eat trolls. The Bergens believe that eating trolls is the only way they can ever be truly happy. Then on the day young Prince Gristle will get his first taste of troll, the trolls escape. King Peppy saves his daughter, Princess Poppy, and all the other trolls; and they live in peace for 20 years. Then Princess Poppy decides to throw an annual bash to celebrate their freedom, but Branch (party pooper troll) warns them that all the dancing and singing will lead to the Bergens finding them. During the party, Branch’s warning comes true. A handful of trolls are kidnapped by the Bergen Chef while other trolls hide. With a “burn returned” threat, Branch decides to help Princess Poppy get the kidnapped trolls before they can be eaten by the Bergens.
