I have a few movies to discuss this week!
Megan Leavey is based on the true story about a decorated Marine and her combat dog Rex. The two went through two tours together until both were injured by an IED. The movie stars Kate Mara, Edie Falco, Will Patton, Common and Ramon Rodriguez, to name a few. It was good.
The Founder is the story about how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) created the McDonald's fast food chain from the original restaurant founded by Richard and Maurice McDonald. Also starring are Laura Dern, Linda Cardellini, Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch. It was interesting.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is based on the novel of the same name by J.K. Rowling. The story is set in the 1920s, when a British wizard comes to New York, on his way to Arizona, in search of magical creatures. While in NYC, he runs into a bit of trouble involving an escaped Niffler, a demoted Auror and a wannabe baker. Eddie Redmayne, Dan Fogler, Katherine Waterstin and Colin Farrell star in this charming wizarding world story. I liked it.
That's all for this time.
