Movie Monday - 3/28/2016

Quick like!

In The Other Woman, Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton play three women who are involved with the same man. They soon find out about each other and decide to collaborate and take revenge on him. It was cute and predictable.

Sage (Julia Garner) needs some help and turns to the only person who can help - her grandmother, Elle (Lily Tomlin). Grandma follows the pair on the wild ride that ensues. The film was a little more serious than it appears at first glance. Marcia Gay Harden and Sam Elliot also star. It was good.

Loosely based on a real person, Lee Daniels' The Butler follows a young man from his young days as a slave on a Georgia plantation to the White House. There, he spends over three decades as a butler with a front row view of political and social changes in American history. Forest Whitaker stars as Cecil Gaines, the main character. Many big names also star in this film, including Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda and Robin Williams. 

I watched (via On Demand because The Husb wanted to see it) Creed. Sylvester Stallone reprises his role as Rocky Balboa. Thankfully, Rocky is now long retired from the ring, but he mentors Apollo's son (Michael B. Jordan) in his quest to become a professional boxer. The film is definitely predictable, but fans of the Rocky series will love it. Me, not so much.

MK out.
