The Peanut Butter Falcon movie review by Sydney

A truly inspiring story , THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON is the story of Zak, a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to achieve his dream of being a student at the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck. A unique turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler, a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they embark on a wild adventure together and cross paths with Eleanor, a worker at the nursing home, who was charged with finding Zak and bringing him back there. But no one had ever asked Zak what he wanted to do, so he threw the car keys into the river and she was forced to go with them on a homemade raft down the river. Their journey was certainly wild. In my opinion, the movie should be 100 stars because it was a perfect example of the struggles some people face every day. One of the things that was so amazing about the movie was the fact that one of the actors had Down Syndrome, which made the movie even more fascinating.Image result for peanut butter falcon

I think there should be more opportunities in the movie,t.v. and music industries for people with challenges.  The movie offered a unique insight into the world of people with special challenges. There are many different kinds of people who don’t often get a chance to really be heard. If only people would stop being prejudiced and really listen, the world would be a better place.

The story Is about The Frog Prince.

In the movie Tiana sees a yucky frog.

Tiana kisses the frog and then she turns into a frog.

Tiana was not happy being a frog.

Tiana and Naveen are both frogs.

Tiana and Naveen have an adventure to try and find a way to turn back into people.

Darkest Hour Movie Review

By Jake M.

During winter break my family and I saw the movie Darkest Hour (2017). The star of the film, Gary Oldman portrays British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The film highlights key decisions Churchill must make, such as whether to go to war with Nazi Germany or negotiate, plus his handling of Dunkirk. The movie also focuses in on Churchill’s personality giving the audience a detailed look of who Churchill was outside of politics. It’s a history buff’s galore.

Churchill came into power during a tumultuous time with leaders like Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler carrying out ethnic genocide and European occupation. The prior Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s foreign policy of appeasement was failing and Winston Churchill was tasked with convincing parliament and the British citizens that a military campaign was the only way to win against European fascists. He also had to conduct a well organized rescue operation at Dunkirk.

Gary Oldman, the highly revered actor, is a household name with a vast variety of roles. Millennials know him best for his roles as Sirius Black in the Harry Potter Series and as Detective Gordon in the Dark Knight Trilogy. He also played a role in the 2014 film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, directed by Matt Reeves. Older fans might recognize him from iconic 1990s films. Roles include: Lee Harvey Oswald in JFK (1991), title character in Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) and Ivan Korshunov in Air Force One (1997). Oldman’s résumé speaks for itself and his role as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour won him the academy award for best actor.

Darkest Hour offers something different for everyone. If you’re a history enthusiast you’ll definitely feel right at home and if you are a fan of Gary Oldman you won’t be disappointed. My biggest takeaway was the beautifully executed portrayal of Churchill and the costume design. I’d give the movie 10 stars.

Thor Ragnarok Review by David G.

Thor:Ragnarok was a Marvel movie that came out November 3rd. Thor:Ragnarok had numerous funny scenes that made me laugh but the funniest scene which was my personal favorite was the scene when Korg is seeing an illusion of Loki dissipating and his reaction is to charge at it, (nonchalantly) shouting “P1$$ OFF, GHOST!”
