I am not your Negro
Review
Based on an unfinished novel by James Baldwin, this tells the story of race in America highlighting the untimely deaths of Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, and Malcolm X, all of whom were friends of Baldwin's. Parts of this were interesting, but it seemed long and disjointed.
Title
Hacksaw Ridge
Review
Based on the true story of how Desmond Doss saved the lives of 75 men during WW2 without ever raising a gun. This was a very inspirational story and made me want to learn more about this amazing man! Andrew Garfield did a phenomenal job portraying Doss! He should of won best actor for the Oscars!
Title
Miss Sloane
Review
The inner-workings of Washington lobbyists are explored in this fast-moving political
drama with an unexpected twist at the end. Jessica Chastain received a Golden Globe nomination for best actress for this film.

My Dog Skip
Review
A heart warming story about a boy and his dog

Keeping Up with the Jones
Review
Really funny! I quite enjoyed this!
Title
Southside with you
Review
This was a cute little movie that portrayed the first date between President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. I LOVED the actress who played Michelle. She was in a soap opera I liked and it was great seeing her in another role.
Title
Doctor Strange
Review
Time-bending, sorcery and alternate realities combine with mind-boggling special effects in this Marvel
Studios fantasy starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton.
Title
Magic Mike XXL
Review
I really enjoyed the first Magic Mike but the sequel was just weak. Joe Manganiello was the best part, especially his scene in the convenience store. There were several scenes that just seemed unnecessary and did nothing to add to the plot.
Title
Rogue One
Review
I guess this is episode 3.5. It is an amazing film. Beautiful story, beautifully acted, beautifully shot. I enjoyed Star Wars films IV, V, VI, and this year The Force Awakens, but I am not a Star Wars fanatic. But this film made me consider reaquainting myself with the entire franchise.

101 Dalmatians (Live Action)
Review
While Glenn Close was great in this, I just wasn't feeling this adaption. I felt like it missed the charm of the animated series by not having the animals talk. The animals were adorable though!
