Sandra Bullock is Malorie, a portrait artist and a reluctant single mother-to-be living alone in her cluttered studio. There’s growing news on TV about random suicides, but it’s far away, in another country on another continent. Until it isn’t…
Now that the theme song has got you in the mood, get comfortable. Released about a month ago, Mission Impossible – Fallout has got Ethan Hawk out here, in what earnestly feels like his 100th impossible mission, and I am here for it!
I have been looking forward to this movie since 2014 when I watched the prequel. Something about the gentle grieving bookworm who is also the neighborhood vigilante struck a cord. Denzel Washington is Mr McCall, a former CIA agent dishing out righteous judgement on pimps and drug dealer, and this time he is here for the traitors.
It’s here! The moment we’ve been waiting for. Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers team up to fight Thanos; their most powerful adversary yet! His mission: to collect all six Infinity Stones and rebalance the universe. And as usual, our fate rests with the Avengers. You have to be living under a rock, on the moon, not to have heard about this movie because Thanos has gone and just about destroyed everywhere else!
Wonder is a great story and I hope you get to watch it. It is a great family movie, enjoyable by both parents and especially enlightening for children. It’s funnier than you’d expect for such a sensitive topic and the family dialogue is well-written.
