Ok, I thought about it, well not really hard, but I just couldn’t subject myself to 2 hours of Godzilla. At this point, I have seen more than my fair share of Godzilla movies, so this week I didn’t check it out for myself.
I have heard several people talk about the Godzilla movie since it came out on Friday. None of the reviews I heard were favorable so I think I made a great choice for me.
Because I didn’t see any of the new movies that came out this week, I am going to do a short review on some of the movies I have seen that are still in the theaters and I will mention a few that are still on my must see list.
Mom’s Night Out
I’ve been hearing great things about Mom’s Night Out from people of all ages. I hear it is funny, and has a great message. From what I’ve heard, it’s worth your time and money. So, although I didn’t see it yet this made it to my must see list.
Heaven is For Real
If you want to read the book, check out the book check it out below
This movie is still out in the theaters and I thought it was definitely a must see. I saw a screener in February where I had a chance to hear from Todd Burpo, and his wife the parents of Colton Burpo the child, speak about their experience.
Hearing this conversation left a huge impression on me, especially when I heard the struggle they went through personally as they decided if they would write the book, and then whether they would do the movie. It was an unforgettable conversation that made me actually want to read the book. I would give it a B+. Another plus is the movie is family friendly, one that people of all ages would enjoy.
I really loved this film and as I sat next to an 70 year old woman at the movie theatre this weekend who had it on her to see list it reminded me again about how much I liked it. The movie was a period piece, but I love the way they weaved in several themes. The movie kept my attention and I love the complexity of the plot. The acting was outstanding and watching the character decide what she would do was a great experience. I would rate this film a A. This is a great movie to take a young lady to see, and have a conversation about choices and decisions and self-worth.
Well those are the movies I am suggesting this week. We are moving into the summer, which is the high season for movies. This week I am looking forward to Blended. It’s the new movie by Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. It’s a comedy about a unlikely couple who has a terrible blind date and then ends up by some twist of fate ending up on a vacation together. I’ll let you know how it is.
Are there any movies that you are looking forward to seeing, or what is the best movie you have seen this year. Please share, I would love to hear about your experience at the movies.
