Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

The critics don't seem to be kind to this film, but I liked it better than some of them. The battle scenes did not seem all that real, but Tina Fey was far better than expectations and she did her best to keep this somwhat true to form. But some of the nightlife and other over the top drama did detract from the whole. I'd suggest waiting until this comes to Netflix, Hulu, HBO or whatever else.

Saw it opening night last weekend, as the wife needed a night out. Was pleasantly surprised, as I'm often disappointed by sequels. Retained both the humor and passionate family love that made the original such a classic. Perhaps not quite the equal, it's still more than worth the price of admission.

I will predict that Queen of Katwe, is destined for a Best Picture nomination for 2016. Loved this one!

There is a mixed media documentary called, The Tower that highlights the U of T tragedy of 1966. It is gripping and powerful and artfully done, intermixing anime and original clips. A must see!

Fences is as good as I had hoped it would be. Denzel was outstanding but his son and wife in the film were incredible, his wife deserved that Oscar!

The Girl on the Train - meh.
The Girl with All the Gifts - I'm not big into zombie movies, but this was an interesting twist on the genre.
Allied - Worthwhile watching on a plane, but there are better things out there.
Arrival - I really liked this one.
Moonlight - Really well done and worthwhile if you are looking for something serious.
I Am Not Your Negro - A very thought provoking documentary. Besides the issue of race relations, I thought there were a few other interesting points brought up in addition.

Eric, I agree 100%.

I Am Not Your Negro - is the single best documentary I have seen in a long time. The perspective of the director who finished the work of James Baldwin is masterful. I am going to include a review I did on this film on FB from Feb. 24th:

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO -
To be clear, this is a current film that most people are not aware of yet. It delivers a gut punch reality as to what it's like to grow up Black, in America. The backdrop of 3 benchmark historical events, through the prism of renowned author James Baldwin's unfinished work, provides great insight and intensity. The omnipresent topic of race relations is explored from his and director Raoul Peck's perspective, rarely, if ever explored in this profound manner. A+

I've decided to take my daughter to see this on Thursday night, as it is the last night it will be around here, (in Seattle proper) on the big screen. While we have a large TV, I'd still rather she sees this for the 1st time in a theater. While we may be the only ones, as it has been playing there for a month now; it will be something she never forgets.

If you are into Horror movies, GET OUT is pretty good and most people I know that have seen it, really liked it. For me, meh. That being said, there are some fun twists and turns that you don't see coming.
