Movies / The Cinema

Post by bkuehn1952 » Wed Mar 28, 2018 10:43 am

We flew to Phoenix & back last week for our company annual meeting. Work, work, work!

On the way over I watched "Coco", the animated Pixar film. I really enjoyed the movie and, to my chagrin, cried twice while watching a cartoon. :facepalm What can I say, I wear my emotions on my sleeve and tend to be pretty sentimental.

Our granddaughter (23 years old) and I have pledged to celebrate Día de los Muertos each year after watching "Coco". We will, of course, put our own spin on the event but I am looking forward to Oct/Nov.

"Downsizing" starring Matt Damon. I enjoyed it. Kind of a ludicrous premise but a nice little sci-fi story. Funny too.

Molly's Game. True story. Awesome. Jessica Chastain was great in it. Was nominated for a bunch of Oscars, but don't think it won any.

Peter Rabbit:

I was able to stay awake for the whole thing, barely. Mostly I just wanted to see what the hoopla was about regarding the "allergy bullying scene." My son has numerous food allergies so we just talked to him before the movie. It wasn't that bad and it aggravated me that people got their panties in a wad over it. So much so that I emailed the president of the asthma and allergy foundation to basically tell him to stick to his organizations goals, and "movie critic" wasn't in those goals. Leave the parenting to parents.

It's okay. I believe they must have a framed manifesto at Pixar studios dictating the volume of tears extracted from the audience.
