Flower The Movie

Flower MP

Rebellious, quick-witted Erica Vandross is a 17-year-old firecracker living with her single mom, Laurie, and her mom’s new boyfriend, Bob, in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. When Bob’s mentally unbalanced son, Luke, arrives from rehab to live with the family, Erica finds her domestic and personal life overwhelmed. With Luke and her sidekicks Kala and Claudine in tow, Erica acts out by exposing a high school teacher’s dark secret. Erica wants to be a hero for her stepbrother and protect him. It’s an unusual and weird film; and also uncomfortable to watch, the movie is rated R. due to crude sexual content and language throughout, graphic nude drawings, some drug content and a brief violent image.

Zoey Deutch performance is absolutely fantastic, she is funny. You might like her. I gave it 3 ½ out of 4 stars.

The story is absolutely crazy and fantastic film. You will love this movie. “Flower” is directed by Max Winkler (Henry Winkler’s son, The Fonz, Happy Days). The script and story by Alex McAulay, and Matt Spicer.  Zoey Deutch performance is absolutely fantastic, she is funny. You might like her. I gave it 3 ½ out of 4 stars..

All The Money In The World

All The Money In the World MP.jpg

All the Money in the World follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money. By the way, this is a true story.

If you haven’t seen it, Christopher Plummer gave a fantastic performance and much better than Kevin Spacey with makeup on. Christopher Plummer had a little makeup on to make himself older. They were some scenes with Kevin Spacey in it, but Christopher Plummer was magnificent.

In other words, Christopher Plummer was original to play J. Paul Getty, and he met the real person in London. So when he heard that Kevin Spacey was fired from the movie, because of sexual harassment. Christopher Plummer had two weeks to memorize his lines before the reshoot.

Reshooting of the movie cost of money. Since Mark Walberg was paid more than Michelle Williams and Michelle Williams is the lead in the movie. It didn’t make sense why she did not get a bigger cut of the reshooting the same scenes. Maybe she was paid more when they shot the first time and for the reshoot paid less.  Still, the lead actor should get more. Mark Walberg has the supporting role, and Mark is a highest paid actor for 2017.  If this movie makes more money than it’s budget, then they will be paid again.

So please see this movie, again and again, By the way, this movie was fantastic. This movie has two Oscar-winning actors:


Timothy Hutton


Christopher Plummer


Michelle Williams won a Golden Globe for My Week with Marilyn (2011). Oscar-nominated actress.

The 79th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Mark Wahlberg

Charlie Plummer 2

So go and see this movie, and make all the money in the world for the actors can get paid. And by the way, he was humming a song that you might recognize.




Better Watch Out

Better Watch Out

If you haven’t heard about this movie, it is a Christmas movie, but with a twist. In a quiet suburban street, a babysitter must defend a twelve-year-old boy from intruders, only to discover it’s far from a normal home invasion. It is a much see movie of the year. You might be home, but you’re not alone. It’s like scream and making of a serial killer, not the Netflix documentary. It involves teens. What if teens wanted to get attention and they do crazy stuff. It is a thriller, the story and dialogue are very smart. You will like this movie. Great performance from the young actors and they will be successful in the entertainment business. This movie is one to watch, and the movie went straight to DVD, and it is a great stocking stuffing too. Since Christmas is already gone, this movie will gain popularity over the next few weeks.

The Last Jedi

the last Jedi 12 17 2017

I am not going to give spoilers about this movie, but the visuals and graphics are absolutely stunning. You will definitely want to see it. If you are not a fan, then it is not the end of the world. Star Wars is one of the great Franchise movies ever made an epic tale of Good and Evil.  The same thing with the politicians they were good once and they turn evil? The total of all the Star Wars made over a billion for the past 40 years.

I like the cinematography in this movie because it’s absolutely breathtaking especially the action scenes they put together.  Since I am a photographer, I like the way it is put together.  Each frame tells a story.

Billie Lourd - The last jedi

Since Carrie Fisher died over a year ago, it is good to remember that this movie will be dedicated to Carrie Fisher and the next episode of the Star Wars Franchise movie should have an epic funeral of her instead of bringing her back alive. Did you know Carrie Fisher helped writing the screenplay for the Last Jedi? There was an epic scene in the movie or was it a premonition she had before she died.  And did anyone know that Billie Lourd, Carrie Fisher daughter was in the movie?

So far, the number is rising, the box office reports over 250 million surpassing the budget of this movie, that means the actors will be paid. Then the IRS will be after them.

rey jedi

One of the biggest clues in the movie is who is Rey? What’s her relationship with the characters in the movie? Who is related too? We don’t know. And why did she have the powers of the Jedi?  Is Kylo Ren and Rey related somehow? Did Yoda conceive her when Yoda did it with human female many years ago in a galaxy far far away?  Should they make a movie about Rey? People want an answer, and it would be great.  I am going to write a screenplay and see if they like it. It would take time to write it.

Go See it.










Justice League: Super Friends

justice-league MP

Justice League is the sequel to Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice when Superman get’s killed by Doom, a Kryptonian creature, but does he live?  We will apparently find out. Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince unite a team consisting of Barry Allen (the flash}, Arthur Curry (Aqua Man) and Victor Stone(Cyborg) to face the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons, who are on the hunt for three Mother Boxes on Earth, while the world reflects on Superman’s death.

Since they have new characters in the movie, will it draw the audience to see it or how did Superman come back from the dead. Will Superman become a Super-Zombie-Man?

We have seen the origin story of Wonder Woman in the summer of 2017; this is not the sequel to Wonder Woman, that will come in 2019. And they are working it right now, and one of the producers was fired because of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Did you know that November 17, 1992, is the 25th anniversary of the death Superman in the DC Comics?

Did you know this is the first time DC Movies demanded a film under 2 hours with some credits at the beginning of the movie? The movie is 120 minutes long, with an after-credit scene after the first half. The rest with credits at the end thanking people and the soundtrack of the movie is awesome. And be aware of the Easter egg references in the movie, it will or might give clues in the movie for the Superheroes.


Oh, by the way, each of the superheroes has their screen time. The dialogue is clever and smart; and humorous. It’s all about their character.

Cyborg, Flash, and Aquaman will definitely have their own movies in the future. Will you see it when it comes out?

Be sure to watch the CW shows, Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and The Arrow. If you missed any of these shows catch it on demand. One of the shows have Plastic Man, do you know which one?

By the way, I love this movie go see it this weekend.


Murder on the Orient Express

Murder On The Orient Express - MP

Murder on the Orient Express is a 2017 mystery drama film directed by Kenneth Branagh with a screenplay by Michael Green, based on the 1934 novel of the same name by Agatha Christie.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The film stars: Branagh as Hercule Poirot, with Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer and Daisy Ridley in supporting roles.

Who is the killer? That’s a mystery, this is the fourth adaptation of Christie’s novel, following a 1974 film, a 2001 TV film and a 2010 episode of Agatha Christie’s Poirot on PBS.

Agatha Christie was an English crime novelist, short story writer, and playwright. She is best known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, particularly those revolving around her fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. She also wrote the world’s longest-running play, a murder mystery, The Mousetrap, and six romances under the name Mary Westmacott. In 1971 she was elevated to Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her contribution to literature.

Did you know there was an actual murder that took place on The Orient Express? Maria Farcasanu was robbed and murdered by Karl Strasser, who pushed her out of the moving train, one year after Agatha Christie’s book was published, that made her write the story.

Did you know the story was inspired when the Orient Express was trapped in a blizzard in 1929? It was going to Çerkezköy, Turkey, where it was marooned for six days.  Two years later Christie was involved in a similar scenario when she was traveling on the Orient Express, and the train got stuck for a period of time due to heavy rainfall and flooding, which washed part of the track away.

Also, the Charles A. Lindbergh kidnapping case inspired the story, in which Lindbergh’s 20-month old son was taken and held for a $50,000 ransom. The ransom was paid, but unfortunately, Lindbergh’s son was never returned.

This movie will be successful and the possibilities of franchising Agatha Christie novels to the movies, which is a good idea.
