Cars 3 (2017)
I became well acquainted with Lightning McQueen back when the original movie was released, my son adored it and I'd say I've seen it at least 100 times since. His brothers also loved it, and they were really excited to see this new movie (We'll all just ignore Cars 2).
The younger boys loved it, and myself and my older boy thought it was a nice tribute to our favourite old Crew Chief, and to McQueen's racing career. Some reviews seem to think that because there is a girl racecar in this one, that somehow "ruins" the film.
Well guess what guys, girls can race too. Imagine that! I see another review that mentions "boys like boy cars more than girl cars" - my sons are at an age where they haven't quite discovered misogyny so they loved all the cars the same.
We enjoyed it a lot, it's much better than Cars 2 (which wouldn't be too hard, in fairness), and we'll be adding a Cruz to our collection as soon as we can.
Hush Little Baby (2007)
Eh - It didn't end? ***MAJOR Spoilers***
I would have given this movie zero if I could. I stayed up until 3am last night watching this all the way to the end, just to see what actually was going on.
More fool me, because I still couldn't tell you. What the heck was the point of the film??!!! Is she crazy, is she depressed, is she haunted? And what the heck were the final few scenes about, they didn't explain ANYTHING. I've seen some tripe in my time - I'll watch anything once, but this was just horrendous. They didn't explain anything at all - the whole way through the movie, the mother is convinced that the baby is evil - then ten minutes before it ends she's waving a knife round to protect the kid?! Then what, a big dark forest scene, a cut to the same dang exterior shot that seems to be used every 10 minutes, and we hear the mother telling the baby it's nap time AND THAT'S IT. Worst Movie EVER.
Only You (1994)
A Beautiful Little Gem of a Movie
I first caught this movie late one night on TV. I fell in love with the characters and the beautiful Italian setting immediately! Marisa Tomei is on fine form as the beautiful Faith, convinced that everyone has a soulmate and that destiny will bring them together in the end. Bonnie Hunt plays a wonderful supporting role as her sister-in-law Kate, who stands by her friend and follows her to Italy when Faith becomes obsessed with finding her "true soulmate", Damon Bradley, after receiving a call from him in which he told her he would not be able to attend her upcoming wedding to her fiancée. A young Faith had been told by both an Ouija Board and a fortune teller that "Damon Bradley" was her soulmate. When searching for Damon in Italy, Faith (literally) bumps into Peter Wright (Downey Jr) a shoe salesman, who becomes instantly enamored by Faith and tells her that he is Damon. They spend a wonderfully romantic evening together, before he confesses that he is not who he claimed to be. She is disgusted, and immediately goes back to her search for Damon. The rest of the film involves Faith on a mission to find Damon Bradley with Kate and Peter's help, and takes them all on a journey they never expected. This is a gorgeous, romantic little movie and well worth a look. I can't recommend it enough.
