Summary

Ani spent most of her adult life building the ideal life. She had the perfect wealthy and handsome fiancé, working as a journalist in New York. Having the perfect facade to hide her insecurities and frustrations became very difficult when she was invited to be in a true crime documentary about her high school life. This was about a school shooting and bomb incident that was connected to her….

Will this documentary destroy her or release her?

Conclusion

This story was a common story that women hear often about victim-blaming. Women were told to be quiet to avoid attention, to dress conservatively to avoid attention and to not get drunk….

This movie was a reminder that it was important to follow your heart and be brave.

Summary

The Matrix Trilogy was a video game designed by Thomas Anderson. He was a nervous game designer who was a suicide survivor. Mr. Anderson tried to jump off a building. He was depressed and couldn’t differentiate between what was real or part of the game. He put so much of himself into the game for too long. He was done.

I was a fan of the original Matrix series. I still loved watching them. This new addition to the story was set 60 years after the Trilogy. I enjoyed the flashbacks, but I wished that they didn’t recast Morpheus.

Summary

Sam and Nate was living in an orphanage when older brother Sam got kicked out for stealing again. This time was an antique map of the ship, Magellan. This ship was rumoured to carry a huge amount of gold when it disappeared. After Sam left, he never came back for Nate. He only sent him the occasional postcards.

After 15 years, Nate bumped into Sully, who was watching him at his bartending job. He told Nate that he had a big job that needed Nate’s quick fingers.

Why did Sully know about Nate’s preferences and habits?

Conclusion

I love treasure hunting movies. The story line was a bit predictable. The movie was based on a video game. I really enjoyed watching Tom Holland’s action scenes.

Movie Review: Top Gun (Maverick)

Summary

After being dismissed from his position in the testing department of the navy, he was sent to go back to Top Gun. Despite proving his amazing ability to push the limits of the newest fighter planes, he had this habit of ignoring senior instructions and do what he believed was correct. That was why after thirty years in the navy, he was still just a captain, while pilots of his generation advanced in their careers.

When he was told that he was to be the instructor to a group of top pilots preparing for a dangerous mission, he was shocked to see his former wingman’s son, Rooster, on the list. He was not ready….

Conclusion

The flying scenes with the dives and speed was exhilarating! Every time they fired their engines, you could feel the chairs shake! The twists in the storyline surprised me.

Summary

After waking up from a coma of twenty years, this 37 year old was determined to go back to high school and finish high school the way she planned….. She was a head cheerleader and fell into a coma after a cheerleading accident. When she woke up, she assumed life was the same as before…. Most of life was different, but her high school rival was still determined to destroy her even after all these years. Her rival married her high school boyfriend, who became infatuated with her again when he saw her!

What will happen when she forces herself to blend in and excel in the high school social zoo?

Conclusion

I actually enjoyed this movie. All the school bullies didn’t disappear even though the principal worked to become inclusive of everyone. I feel very much like her at times as I enjoy many of the past times of younger generations. Past times like social media, really help me to stay current. However, some people of my generation or older, don’t understand and even make fun of my involvement with younger generations.
