Knives Out: Movie Review

Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, LaKeith Stanfield, Jaeden Martell, and Katherine Langford in Knives Out (2019)

My thoughts/reaction to Knives Out is that I enjoyed the movie, it was interesting how the film used some classic mystery thrillers/comedies like Clue, Murder on the Orient Express and more, also the TV show: Murder, She Wrote 

 

The cast did a great job in the film, In my opinion is that Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Lakeith Stanfield and Christopher Plummer…their performances were excellent

 

One of my favorite quotes in the film is Daniel Craig’s character private detective, Benoit Blanc saying: “This is a twisted web, and we are not finished untangling it, not yet.” 

 

I give this film an A+. it will be one of my favorite murder mystery films along with Clue and Murder on the Orient Express 

 

I know it’s too early to talk about a sequel. But an interview with Collider, writer/director Rian Johnson mentioned he would love to turn Knives Out into a series revolving around Daniel Craig’s Detective Blanc solving different mysteries.

In my opinion, I would love to see it.

Hello, My name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Care Bears: Nutcracker Suite. This movie was first released on December 10, 1988.

In this movie, The Care Bears (TenderHeart Bear, FunShine Bear and Grumpy Bear), The Care Bear Cousins (BraveHeart Lion and LotsaHeart Elephant), The Care Bear Cubs (Hugs and Tugs) and their new human friends (Anna and her little brother Peter) try to help an amnesiac Nutcracker “who is in fact The Prince of Toyland” as he attempts to rescue The Sugar Plum Fairy, recover the Prince’s magic ring “whosoever wears this ring has complete control over Toyland” and  liberate Toyland from the tyrannical wizard, The Evil Vizier and his army of rats, led by the Rat King.

In conclusion, I found this movie to be a true dedication to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker as well as being one of two Care Bear movies to be based off of a different franchise “the other franchise is Alice in Wonderland.”

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Felix the Cat: The Movie. This movie was first released in the US on June 22, 1990.

 

The protagonists in this movie are Felix the Cat, Princess Oriana, Madam Pearl, Pim, Poindexter, the Mizzards “a cross between a mouse and a lizard” and The Professor. The antagonists in this movie are Grumper, Wack Lizardi, Master Cylinder and The Duke of Zill.

 

In this movie, Felix the Cat, Poindexter and The Professor travel to another dimension to save both Princess Oriana and the Kingdom of Oriana from Princess Oriana’s evil uncle, The Duke of Zill. The locations in this movie are Felix the Cat’s dimension,the Great Anairo Gold Mine, the Trans-Dimensional Portal chamber, the Land of Zill, Wack Lizardi’s Circus, the Head-Hunter’s forest and the Kingdom of Oriana.

 

In conclusion, I believe that out of all of Felix the Cat’s adventures, this one makes all those other adventures put together seem like one, simple daydream in comparison. But then, he is in fact “Felix the Wonderful Cat.”

The Current War movie review

My thoughts on the movie: The Current War is that it’s a great historical film, taking place in the 19th century involving the competition between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse over which electric power delivery system would be used in the U.S.

Benedict Cumberbatch as Edison, Michael Shannon as Westinghouse and Nicholas Hoult as Nikola Tesla alongside Tom Holland, Katherine Waterston, Tuppence Middleton and the whole cast did a great job 

What I like about the movie is that you get to know and learn, have an idea…you invent something that will change the whole world

SPOILER ALERT: one of the best scenes in the film is the chemistry between Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland…their performance, the emotional and more. When you’re watching the movie, imagine Doctor Strange and Spider-Man in the alternate universe.
