Movie Review – BayWatch

Baywatch poster.jpgDwayne Johnson plays Mitch Buchannon (not the original Mitch) and runs his beach with an iron fist. Then newcomer, Brody (played by Zac Efron) is from Iowa and is a two-time Olympic gold swim medalist. He gets on the life-guard training program with Mitch and both clash. Brody doesn’t do team-work well and the two have many funny moments.

If you liked the original BayWatch with LifeGuards solving crime, then you’ll enjoy the movie.

I thought the movie was okay with even a cameo by David Hasselhoff playing the first ‘Mitch Buchannon’.

My rating 3.0 stars out of 5

Movie Review – 47 Meters Down

47 Meters Down (2017) Theatrical Release Poster.pngMovie Review – 47 Meters Down

Two sisters go to Mexico on vacation. Lisa and Kate have fun even meeting two local guys who convince them to come on a boat to watch sharks from a diving cage.

When they arrive, Lisa wants to backdown after seeing the rusty old cage, but her sister convinces her to go.

The Captain throws out chum in the water, which Kate calls him out on as it’s illegal to have it around divers. He says it’s the only way to guarantee sharks.

Before long, the girls are in the water when the pulley breaks, plunging them down 47 meters to an ocean floor cliff.

This movie has lots of sharks and scares. A few times, the sharks acted weird – like I wouldn’t see a shark snapping its teeth into a cave after prey – but I try to stay away from sharks 😉 so I could be wrong.

There was even a plot twist I wasn’t expecting.

If you like scary movies about sharks, this one is pretty suspenseful.

Movie Review – Bright

BrightPoster.jpegMovie Review – Bright

Bright is an Urban Fantasy Action-packed film. “In an alternate present, humans live in uneasy peace with orcs, elves, centaurs, dwarves and other races after they fought for thousands of years. In Los Angeles, veteran LAPD police officer Daryl Ward has been involuntarily partnered with Nick Jakoby, the nation’s first orcish police officer. Jakoby is faced with prejudice by humans for his race, and by orcs for his position as an officer.”1

All of Ward’s world implods when a magic wand is found — one of only three in existance. Trouble is not just anyone can touch one. Only a Bright that’s a special person out of millions.

I wasn’t sure if I’d like the film or not because I read the critiques reviews. However, it was btter than I thought it would be. But it felt like the first chapter of a book and I wanted more.

Movie Review – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Movie Review – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars The Last Jedi.jpg

Characters from Star Wars Episode VII return along with some of the charm and humor.

Rey has traveled to Luke Skywalkers’ recluse island and given him back his lightsaber along with the request to train her and return to the rebellion.

(Side note: Luke’s island is a real location: Skellig Michael in Ireland)

There are plenty of twists in this movie. Although some a lot more predictable than others. However, overall I really enjoyed the film. Some critics have said it’s on par with The Empire Strikes Back, I disagree. I would put the movie under TESB and the original Star Wars movie, but above Return of the Jedi.

Episode IX, the final installment of the sequel trilogy, is scheduled for release on December 20, 2019.[1]
