PLOT: Successful black male meets his white girlfriend’s parents with scary results.
Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Johnny English Reborn) is very much in love with Rose (Allison Williams, Girls HBO series) a pretty white woman. They are getting serious and Rose wants him to meet her parents. He is nervous for her folks doesn’t know he is African-American. He goes anyway even when his good friend Rod (LilRel Howery, a stand-up comic) advises him not to go. Big mistake for he starts seeing things that are very unsettling with the black maid and gardener. He finally finds out what is going on and it is frightening! Some people think it is slow because it is building to a creepy climax. There is a lot going on in this film. All the actors are great-especially Howery who is much needed comic relief and director Jordon Peele (part of Key and Peele-the one with the glasses who does skit comedy on Comedy Central) does a great job.
PLOT: The final chapter of Wolverine.
Logan (Hugh Jackman) is older and the adamantium is killing him yet he takes a job as a chauffeur and takes care of an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart). A mysterious woman begs him to take a young girl Laura (Dafne Keen) to the Canadian border and they are endless hunted by the military to get the Laura back. OMG! This is not a POPCORN MOVIE! There is humor but it is bloody, dark and grim. It is a slow pace but when there is action it is a messy. It is rated R for a very good reason. Jackman is good for he can be human and horrifying too. Keen mostly has a scowl on her face and when you watch the movie you will know why. See it if you like Wolverine for Hugh Jackman says it’s his last(?). If he did he ended it on a high but sad note.
KONG SKULL ISLAND
PLOT: In 1973 scientists and military go to an island that doesn’t exit and finds monsters.
First, let me say King Kong is not my favorite giant monster until I saw this movie! He is seen more than my favorite giant monster Godzilla 2014. King Kong in 1933 is 25 feet, this one is 100 feet. The people are expendable but they do what they can. No one is going to see this epic movie for acting. The monster action is AMAZING and the finale is FANTASTIC!!! If the upcoming film Godzilla Vs King Kong is as good as this-shut up and take my money! Giant monsters fans REJOICE!. Stay for the extra footage.
