PLOT: Retired Rocky Balboa trains Apollo’s son.
Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) is older and alone then Apollo Creed’s son wants to be a fighter and wants Rocky to train him. Soon they form a bond. Michael B. Jordan is great as Adonis Creed and Stallone is fantastic as the now father figure Rocky. The boxing is brutal! No two fighters can last as long with the punches they exchange in the movies. You have seen these kinds of movies before but this one is well made.
THE GOOD DINOSAUR
PLOT: Arlo is lost dinosaur and will do anything to find his family and meets a young cave boy who becomes his friend.
The animation and the music are great. It had funny moments but this film is frightening for young children! Bugs are used as musical instruments or eaten! It is rough stuff so if you do bring your kids be warned.
PLOT: Charlie Brown and friends are back on the big screen.
Charlie Brown, that lovable failure is back in 3D animation and it is good. There is really no story. It is nostalgia about the characters and situations that made Peanuts wonderful. All ages will like it and some will love it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS
PLOT: The first of the new Star Wars saga.
It has been 30 years since the end of Darth Vader and the Empire but there is a new enemy emerging named the First Order led by the evil Kylo Ren to crush the resistance. If you are not a Star Wars fan you will enjoy this movie! It is epic and action packed. If you are a Star Wars fan you love this movie! Why? It is new and nostalgia. Some people will be disappointed because it is not completed in this film but it is the first of a new series. You will learn more in each film. Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver are great as new characters to the franchise as well as Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.
