Top 5 Must See Movies Under The Radar….. (CLICK LINK BELOW TO SEE)
Ok, I have been trying to give you brief synopsis of movies, or shows that I am currently watching with Jerral. It’s funny how life can do a complete 360 on you, and you start making time for what you think is important. Last year we could hardly get any shows in during the week, and sometimes now that can be the case. The time that we have had to watch these shows, we just either fell in love, learned a valuable lesson, and couldn’t remove ourselves from the TV!!
Top 5 Movies That We Love….
#1. Mr. Church: “Mr. Church” tells the story of a unique friendship that develops when a little girl and her dying mother retain the services of a talented cook – (Henry Joseph Church.) What begins as a six month arrangement instead spans into fifteen years and creates a family bond that lasts forever. When I found “Mr. Church I was intrigued by his cooking ability in the movie, and wanted to know why he played such a significant role in this mother’s life, and this very moxy little girl who wanted nothing to do with him.( Ha ha ha) I could of gained weight watching this movie alone, he made such wonderful dishes.
Run time: 104 minutes
#2 The Great Gilly Hopkins: A feisty foster kid’s outrageous scheme to be reunited with her birth mother has unintended consequences in The Great Gilly Hopkins, an entertaining film for the entire family. Gilly goes in and out of foster homes, and she is definitely NOT your most warm, and fuzzy teenager. When you first begin watching this chica, you almost want to say, “HOW RUDE”, but as an educator you can see first hand how that can be a wall that has been set up to protect yourself from any more heartbreak.
Movie: PG (Thematic material and language)
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Run time: 97 minutes
#3 Get Out: In the opening scene, a young black man named Dre (Keith Stanfield) is walking alone at night through a perfectly manicured suburban street. A little sports car pulls up and starts slowly tracking him. Well, NOT too give too much away in this movie, but Jerral and I went to the theatre to see this film. Let me say this… “Get Out” was a definite thriller, and a huge amount of humor too. We weren’t sure of the movie, but would highly recommend watching it, but maybe not with children.
Movie: R (violence, and sexual references)
Genre: Comedy, Horror, Mystery & Suspense
Run Time: 104 minutes
This Only Gets Better…..
#4 HUSH: A deaf writer who retreated into the woods to live a solitary life must fight for her life in silence when a masked killer appears at her window. This movie had me on edge the entire time, and I just could NOT stay seated the entire time. I want to say that Jerral probably got beat up,with me jumping, kicking, and hollering the entire movie. At, first I was a little skeptical about giving this movie my attention, but I decided #WTH let’s give it a good ole’ try! (LOL)..
Genre: Horror (80’s slasher type film) Thriller
Run Time: 1 hour 27 minutes
#5 First Born-A young couple’s lives are turned upside down when the birth of their first child is accompanied by terrifying entities that threaten their newly formed family. This movie was so out the unexpected, and we actually kept watching til the end. Personally I have always loved watching these eerie, creepy movies that involve dolls without faces, and all that jazz.. LOL
Movie: Rated R
Run Time: 1 hr and 26 minutes
