April Movie Reviews and What to Watch
At first I wasn't so sure about this show, but it really has grown on me. I look forward to Wednesday nights now! This year has a been a good year for TV shows. Finally some real stories as opposed to these dumb reality TV shows. Disgnated Survivor is a little politics, a little mystery, and a possible love story in the works. Can't wait to see where this show goes and I truly hope it comes back next year.
I am a huge Masterpiece Theater fan and Home Fires can be found on PBS on Sunday nights. If you love War War II shows than this TV show if for you. Set in a small town in England the show covers the early years of WWII and the effects it had on the British people mostly seen through the eyes of the woman left behind. If you saw the series Land Girls (2009-2011), this has a very similar feel. Now in it's second Season and I just read final season this show is still worth watching if you are looking for a story line of hope, courage, and friendship.
When I saw the trailor for The Zookeepers Wife, I was so thrilled. I love movies set during WWII and Jessica Chastain is such an incredible actress. The story line spans from the envasion to the end of the war and is based on the true story of Antonia and Jan Zabinski who were able to save the lives of more than 600 jews. What an incredible story of courage!
Boss Baby was not a movie I was dying to see, but my children were so excited to see it. The premise of the movie is that a family has a new baby and his older brother is not so thrilled; however the two link up to save the baby race from being replaced by puppies and in the mean time the two fall in love with each other. The movie is sassy, and may not be everyone's cup of tea. The children loved the movie though!
I actually haven't seen this movie yet, but I can't wait to see it. It is about a uncle who has been given custody of his niece after her mother passes away, the little girl is extremely gifted but the uncle wants her to be educated in a manor that would allow her to enjoy her childhood; however, grandma doesn't feel the same way. If anything else, Chris Evans isn't too bad to look at! I am hoping to see this in the next week or two if I can get away. Stayed tune! Have you seen anything good lately?
